View Full Version : Gen Lock Card documentation

01-11-2005, 05:10 PM
Just got handed a genlock card for VT(3) system, and I don't think I have all the documentation on installation and setup. (Used card, purchased on eBay.) Can Paul or anyone point me to a source where I can dl docs? Thanks! While I'm at it, any tips or tricks I should know about? I do have external vector scope.

How do you genlock thru the SDI card???

Connecting to the aux SDI input did nothing with the SX-84 attached...

and I didn't find anywhere how to use the SDI for genlocking...

How do you genlock thru the SDI card?

Phase is not as critical for SDI streams as it is for analogue video, but you can certainly genlock the VT[4] to house synch. Since the SDI card shares the same clock as the VT[4] card, your output will now be in synch with House.

Paul it never worked when I put house sync thru SDI card's Video "in" or reserved input.

The VT system ran free..rather than being locked...is there another setting somewhere to be set if you are locking thru the SDI card?

Any ideas why not?
