Analog/SD/HD/3G Advanced Test Signal Generator

Model Details

The Videotek® VSG-4TSG is part of the Imagine Communications Reference Sync and Timing platform, and is a ½RU wide, 1RU tall and 12 inches deep 3G/HD/SD master timing generator. The unit is small in size, with redundant power supply inputs, and is low in power consumption and light in weight, making it a perfect fit for all broadcast television and post production environments.



Features:

Inputs

  • Genlock to standard color black (NTSC – SMPTE 170M and PAL – ITU-R BT. 470-5)
  • Genlock to tri-level sync (SMPTE 240M/274M/296M)
  • Support for various time code formats and time code user bit formats, including SMPTE/EBU drop frame or non-drop time code format
  • GPS support via PPS and RS-232 interface; optional GPS-3904 recommended for 10 MHz, PPS and RS-232 interface support
  • NTP support and PTP support via a network connection
  • VITC support from black burst inputs
  • LTC support
  • GPI I/O
  • Redundant external power supplies

Outputs

  • Two SDI test signal outputs with selectable video format, frame rate and test signal
  • One analog sync output, configurable as color black/black burst or Tri-Level sync
  • Two PGM as unbalanced AES or Sync (color black/black burst or tri-level sync)
  • One PGM as analog composite video test or sync (color black/black burst or tri-level sync)
  • VITC support on black burst, D-VITC and ATC support on SDI output
  • AFD/WSS/VI support on SDI output
  • Two LTC outputs
  • Support for Digital Audio Reference Signal (DARS) or Word Clock on a shared BNC
  • Two balanced analog audio outputs
  • Two balanced AES outputs
  • Capabilities for up to 16 channels of embedded audio, enabled by group

Processing

  • Configurable Daylight Savings Time and Leap Second Change auto-detection for some input sources
  • User-definable scheduled call outs to time reference sources, such as GPS receivers
  • User-programmable delays for input and output, offsets, time code offsets, output phasing, and input and output jam syncs
  • Display of current video setup, local time, and date on a menu-driven front panel interface

Test Signals

  • Test signals in a variety of bars and patterns
  • Video formats: 525, 625, 1080i, 1080p/ 50, 59,60, 1080p, 1080psf, 720p, 2Kp, 2Kpsf, NTSC, PAL

  • Continuous motion overlaid on the pattern
  • The capability to overlay up to 19 characters of source ID within the test pattern
  • Audio Test tones
    • Global audio selections to adjust amplitude and frequency
    • Customized .wav files as audio test signals
    • Dolby E and Dolby D audio signal generator
    • Audio sequence test signals for channel identification and loudness measurement, etc.
