Features & Benefits

  • Multiformat Analog and Digital Test Signal Generation
  • Ideal Channel Configuration and Performance to Support Reference Generator Needs
  • Modular Expandable Platform
  • Stay GenLock™ – Unique, Robust Genlock Mode provides Stable Synchronization Signals for Digital and Traditional Broadcast Facilities

Applications

  • Sync Pulse Generator and Test Signal Generator for Post Production and Broadcast Facilities
  • Test Signal Generator for Research and Development
  • Equipment Design and Maintenance

The TG700 is a multiformat, analog and digital, precision signal generation platform. Designed with the changing needs of the video industry in mind, the TG700 offers sync pulse generation and test signal generation for a wide array of analog, serial digital, and digital high-definition formats. The TG700 Multiformat Video Generator has a modular architecture that offers the flexibility to meet the single-format and growing multiformat needs of the video professional. The TG700 mainframe allows up to four of the following modules to be fitted in the mainframe.


AGL7 Analog Genlock Module.

The TG700 has a high stability reference. The AGL7 Analog Genlock Module adds the capacity to lock to a variety of signals, which makes the TG700 an ideal solution as the master house reference or slave reference for broadcast and production/post-production applications. Three black outputs are available and are selectable for HDTV tri-level or NTSC or PAL. Additionally, the AGL7 can lock to a variety of formats to include NTSC/PAL black and HDTV tri-level as well as 1, 3.58, 4.43, 5, and 10 MHz CW. When the AGL7 is configured for Stay GenLock™ mode, a momentary loss of synchronization at the genlock reference input will not cause a disturbance in the TG700’s test signal and black outputs. When the genlock signal is reapplied, the AGL7 will gradually reacquire lock, causing little disruption to devices synchronized to the TG700 reference.


GPS7 GPS Synchronization and Time Code Module.

The GPS7 GPS Synchronization and Time Code Module includes an integrated GPS receiver which can serve as the system timing reference. Synchronization to the GPS timing signals ensures long-term stability, and video frame alignment between independent systems. The GPS RF coaxial signal input is available with 3.3 V or 5 V DC power output for the GPS antenna enabling the user to select from a variety of GPS antennas available on the market. The GPS7 also includes a genlock input with VITC reader, enabling user-selectable configuration of the TG700 as the master reference or as a slave to another master, depending on the dynamic requirements of each production. The GPS7 module will maintain system timing by Stay GenLock™ technology even during periods of GPS signal loss or genlock signal loss. Three black outputs are available and are selectable for HDTV tri-level, NTSC, or PAL. Time code source can be selectable to the time-of-day (with user-selectable offsets) from GPS receiver, internal source, VITC on the reference input, LTC input, or to a "program time" counter for elapsed-time time code. The Daylight Savings Time (DST) adjustment could be recurring scheduled, based on calendar rules. Time code is available as VITC on black outputs (GPS7, BG7), as Ancillary Time Code (ATC) (HDVG7, HD3G7, SDI7), from four independent LTC outputs (GPS7), and as a response to time requests on a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP version 3.0) Server.

The DVG7 is a multiformat SD-SDI test signal generator. The DVG7 Digital Video Generator supports 525 line and 625 line serial digital video at 270 Mb/s and NTSC composite digital at 143.181818 Mb/s. The DVG7 Digital Video Generator has two identical test signal outputs. With Option BK, two additional identical serial digital black signal outputs are available.


HDVG7 HD-SDI Digital Generator (shown with Option BK).

The HDVG7 is a high-accuracy, multiformat, high-definition test signal module that provides up to two identical 1.485 Gb/s serial digital video test signal outputs in a broad variety of formats. With Option BK, two additional identical serial black signal outputs are available. Ancillary Time Code (ATC) generation is available when the GPS7 is installed in the TG700 mainframe. Up to two HDVG7 modules can be placed in a single TG700 mainframe.

The digital modules DVG7 and HDVG7 support AV timing mode and up to 16 channels of 20- or 24-bit audio sampled at 48 kHz embedded on the test signal outputs. The user can independently set frequency and level for each channel.

Full frame test and custom patterns can be generated for the AVG7, AWVG7, DVG7, and HDVG7 modules. Simple full frame patterns are available on V3.1 (or higher than V3.1) CD-ROM.
