SPG700 Multiformat Reference Sync Generator

The SPG700 is a multiformat reference sync generator with optional 3G/HD/SD-SDI test signal generator support for traditional SDI-based video infrastructure. It provides multiple video reference signals, such as black burst and HD tri-level sync, and audio reference signals, such as DARS and 48 kHz word clock, and it supports various timecode formats for time reference generator applications.
