I currently am using a Blackmagic openGear 10-output sync generator to time out my live event setup.
Everything eats the HD tri-level sync correctly except for 2 cameras (Panasonic AW-HE50) which will only sync to Black burst, so I use the sync outputs of my Ross Carbonite switcher (which is taking in Tri-level) to output SD BBS for these oddball cameras. So far so good, and they sync immediately to the switcher.
However, I move these PTZ cameras around in various places, and would like to lay in sync cable permanently in these various places.
Question: is there an easy way to re-generate this Black burst using the original source? Or, more accurately, split this signal to multiple destinations? I know that running my HS-sync into a splitter kills the timing since it will always be reclocked. Can the Blackburst be thrown into an analog DA to be sent to multiple locations?
