Crystal Vision Releases SYNNER-VF Video Synchroniser

Crystal Vision has released a video synchroniser for its new Vision frame system. SYNNER-VF combines multiple functions on one card to simplify system designs and save broadcast engineers money and rack space.

Working with 3Gb/s, HD and SD sources and both AES and analogue audio, SYNNER-VF combines a video synchroniser, tracking audio delay, embedder, de-embedder, audio processor and video proc-amp, and includes flexible delay compensation, advanced handling of Dolby E, comprehensive signal monitoring and optional integrated fibre input/output. SYNNER-VF gives more video outputs than Crystal Vision has offered before on a synchroniser, and takes advantage of the dual reference syncs distributed from the Vision frame, resulting in easier wiring and the option of a backup reference.

SYNNER-VF can synchronise incoming video signals which are not locked to the local reference. The dual common reference on the Vision frame allows an engineer to achieve maximum system reliability by providing main and backup reference distribution throughout the facility. Additionally, it includes a tracking audio delay.

It can be used as an embedder or de-embedder and it also allows very flexible handling of Dolby E: it will synchronise video containing a mixture of Dolby E and linear AES within the same audio group.

For optimising the quality of the sound or picture, SYNNER-VF can be used as an audio or video processor - offering gain adjustment, audio resampling and stereo to mono conversion, as well as a video proc-amp which allows adjustment of the video gain, black level and independent RGB and YUV gains. Lastly, for those who need to synchronise signals from beyond the local equipment bay, SYNNER-VF can easily be given integrated fibre input/output connectivity by fitting the FIP-VF fibre input option, FOP-VF fibre output option or FIO-VF fibre input and output option.
