For Immediate Release
Iroquois, ON, Canada – March 30, 2010 – Ross Video will be releasing the SPG-8260, a sync pulse generator that provides four pairs of outputs with each pair independently programmed to be either tri-level sync or a composite color black signal with independent timing on each pair of outputs.
Releasing at NAB 2010, the sync pulse generator is capable of free running, for applications where master sync generation is required, or it can be locked to a house reference for applications requiring either a mix of color black and tri-level or applications that require timeable outputs to simplify system timing issues.
“The SPG-8260 is a key piece of equipment needed in every facility,” said Eric Goodmurphy, Gear Marketing Product Manager, Ross Video. “This is an excellent device for facilities where a mix of color black and tri-level syncs are required.”
In addition to the composite and tri-level outputs the SPG-8260 also offers up to two AES reference outputs with selectable tone and output levels.
