sync/ref design and configuration, whats the best design
on May 6, 2013 at 6:11:38 pm

HI All, (i posted this in an old thread as well)

I am revisiting Sync configuration.

I currently have A:

-GRASS VALLEY SCB-200N
-AJA GEN10
-VIDEOTEK VDA 16A (da)

We are moving our facility to a larger space and I would like to set the Reference and sync up properly. Yes, Bob we have sync hard wired up to our Betas, Digi betas, SR, D5, Network encoders (Pipeline, clipmail)and all.

I ordered Red BNC cable to make brand new Reference only cables and again hoping to get pointed in the right direction for this project.

According to what I read and to this post. I think I should design a dedicated patch-bay for Sync/ref only.

Questions on connection:

What should receive NTSC Black Burst and/or Tri-level sync?

what about the gear that takes both an NTSC SD signal and an 1080i 59.94 HD signal?

Should I normalize ALL SD/HD gear to the GRASS VALLEY SCB-200N NTSC black burst signal and manually patch the tri-level when needed like advised in this post? When exactly do I want to patch in the Tri-level?

What should out TEKTRONIX WVR 7200 receive?

Should the AJA GEN10 be normalized to anything in this design?

We very rarely work in 23.98/24p its always in 29.97 or 59.94

Thank you as always and looking forward to your response.

Gear:

-GRASS VALLEY SCB-200N
-AJA GEN10
-VIDEOTEK VDA 16A (da)

Just taking a quick look at your equipment list, I don't think that anything there will need (or take) Tri-Level sync. Just good old black burst.
