LEADER INSTRUMENTS is proud to extend its line of video sync generators with the LT8900 Multi Format Video and Sync Generator. Its innovative architecture avoids the need for numerous option boards or factory upgrades by allowing most optional features to be activated via software. This ensures that units are easily upgradable, either locally or from a remote location.

Analog, SD and HD references and test signals are generated simultaneously for both 525 and 625 standards with independent timing control for all outputs to simplify system integration. Special attention has been paid to the audio section with multiple audio generators assignable for AES, embedded SD/HD, wordclock and analog stereo audio.

All HD and Tri-level sync formats are accommodated either within the base unit or by fitting the appropriate option board. HD test patterns are available in all of the recognized 1.485 Gb/s standards or, with the optional 3G output board, in any of the extended 2.970 Gb/s formats.

The optional GPS receiver provides an extremely stable and robust method for accurately locking multiple SPGs and also for governing the unit’s LTC, VITC and NTP outputs, while the SNMP agent permits remote status monitoring of critical functions. Accurate GPS referencing is managed by the internal receiver module, or by locking to an external source of 1pps and NMEA serial data, guaranteeing the synchronization of all video, audio, PC-based devices and system clocks.

The browsable Vector application allows remote configuration and monitoring of all system parameters, in addition to managing software and feature upgrades.

For enhanced security, redundant LT8900 units may be deployed together with the compatible LT8910 changeover unit. This fail-safe, modular product monitors the integrity of both main and reserve reference signals to effect an automatic switch to the reserve unit. Optional boards for detection of Tri-level sync, LTC, AES and SDI may also be fitted.
