Horita TSG-50 NTSC Test Signal Generator

Manufacturer: Horita Co

Item #: TSG-50   •   MFG #: TSG-50







The TSG-50 generates 13 precision digitally synthesized video test signals/patterns. Wide range of signals are ideal for setting up, aligning, and evaluating the performance of various video equipment found in a typical video editing system, such as video monitors, distribution amplifiers, VCRs, multi-media systems, switchers, effects generators, TBCs, etc. In addition to the video signals, the TSG-50 also generates composite sync and, with a video DA such as the HORITA VDA-50, becomes a high quality, multiple output, house sync generator.
