      The SPG8000A is a precision multiformat video signal generator, suitable for master synchronization and reference applications. It provides multiple video reference signals, such as black burst, HD tri-level sync, and serial digital and composite analog test patterns, and it provides time reference signals such as time code, NTP (Network Time Protocol), and IEEE 1588 PTP (Precision Time Protocol). The base configuration includes three sync outputs that can be configured with independent output formats and independently adjustable timing offsets.

      Option SDI adds two fully independent serial digital video generator channels of two outputs each. Each channel can be configured to any standard 3G/HD/SD-SDI format and frame rate. The selected test pattern can be generated on both outputs per channel, or one output can generate digital black.

      A wide variety of standard test patterns are included, such as color bars, convergence grid, step scales, ramps, multiburst, SDI pathological test matrix and a real-time programmable zone plate generator. Bitmap images can be downloaded to the SPG8000A’s flash memory for arbitrary user-defined test patterns. ID text, burn-in time code, circle, and color logo overlays can be added to any test pattern, and several ancillary data packet types, including ancillary time code and user-defined packets, can be inserted into the SDI output signal.

      The four SDI outputs can be configured to support 4K/UHD full frame, 100% and 75% color bars for quad link square division mode. This allows simple verification of your 4K/UHD workflow within the production studio or mobile truck. Note: VPIDs are compliant only to HD and 3G formats in 4K/UHD formats. Also included is an audio/video delay test sequence, which in conjunction with a Tektronix waveform monitor, can be used to ensure A/V delay compliance.

      Please note! This item is an add-on "option" to the Tektronix SPG8000A Master Sync / Master Clock Reference Generator. The SPG8000A is required and sold separately. Image is for reference only!!

      • Features

        • Multiple independent black burst and HD tri-level sync outputs provide all the video reference signals required in a video broadcast or production facility
