Video Timing Synchronization

  • Updated

You can use the following external devices to synchronize a video signal with a central timing reference (Color Black, Tri-Level sync). You can genlock a decoder video output with production systems that do not offer automatic input frame synchronization.

Note: Resi offers a decoder model that supports reference-input, which can provide timed video output from the decoder natively.


I/Os include SD/HD/3G SDI input and output, HDMI output, and 2-channel RCA style audio output. A reference input allows the UDC to be locked to a local reference. Learn more

The ADVC G1 converts and/or upconverts sources to HD/SD-SDI (with 1.5 and 3 Gb/s support) via its HDMI, DVI, component, composite, and S-Video inputs. The box also functions as an audio embedder, which captures sources via its AES/EBU and analog audio inputs and embedding them for output via SDI. With its video reference input, the ADVC G1 is able to serve as a frame synchronizer. Learn more
