Trilogy Mentor CX SPG Provides On-Air Security

Introduced at IBC 2018, Trilogy began shipping the Mentor CX SPG late this January.

Four months ago Trilogy, a ClearCom company, debuted the Mentor CX, a 22-channel sync pulse generator (SPG) changeover unit that provides full redundancy of video and audio timing and synchronization signals.

The Mentor CX Changeover unit is designed to ensure timing and synchronization of audio, video and timecode are hot redundant in any Broadcast or professional media application. The Mentor CX can monitor up to 22 different channels of multiple types of digital and analog signals, from both RG units, with any disruption of those signals facilitating a changeover to the secondary Mentor RG.

The Mentor product family is suitable for any digital or mixed format environment where a high quality digital SPG is required. The Mentor CX is designed to ensure continuity of timing and synchronization of audio video and timecode redundancies in any broadcast or professional media application, providing a manual, automatic or GPIO triggered changeover between a pair of Mentor RG SPG generators. The Mentor CX can monitor up to 22 different channels of multiple types of digital and analog signals from both RG units, with any disruption of those signals facilitating a changeover to the secondary Mentor RG.

The Vector web management system, tightly integrated with Mentor RG, provides full setup, monitoring and control with SNMP integration as standard. The Mentor CX’s Vector also monitors and displays status of both Mentor RGs, including Sync, NTP and PTP health.
