CY460 – Master SPG Test Pattern & Time Reference Generator



The CY460 is the ultimate sync, test pattern & time reference generator designed to satisfy all needs of broadcast serial digital (Standard, High Definition & 3G) and mixed digital/analogue, post-production, OB and other operational environments. It provides all the reference (Colour

Black, Tri-Level Sync), timing and test signals, including LTC and VITC, together with analogue audio, AES audio & Wordclock, needed to satisfy any application in PAL, NTSC, SD SDI, HD SDI, & 3G SDI and mixed standard installations.

Optionally the unit is supplied with two “hot swappable” redundant power supplies for maximum security. The power supplies are directly accessible from the front panel.

The CY460 is designed for use either as a master or, when genlocked, as a slave SPG. Where it is critical to have a backup SPG, the CY465 auto changeover unit complements the CY460. This can be user configured to monitor and changeover analogue video, digital video, timecode and AES/EBU digital audio signals.
