The 7600HD-REF reference and test signal generator is a high-stability standalone 1 RU unit for providing system timing. It has a complete set of reference signals, including a master Genlock reference loop-through input. It can be used in either master or slave roles. A powerful feature is timecode generation, as well as a complete set of reference signals, allowing for a very compact timing solution. Reliability is a top feature of the 7600HD-REF with dual-redundant power supplies and the ability to interface to the 7620PX changeover unit for backup.
For versatility, the 7600HD-REF has no less than five individually timed analog black and burst reference outputs. In addition, three SDI feeds provide individual test signals, including full-field signals where each can be separately configured. A full set of audio test signals are provided with analog audio available as well as unbalanced AES and embedded audio outputs.
The 7600HD option provides for an additional four Tri-level sync outputs and a full set of HD test signals.
The timecode generator options allow for a versatile solution to timecode. Longitudinal and vertical interval timecode LTC and VITC can be output.
The 7600HD-REF can act as an NTP server ensuring IT-based units keep in step with the broadcast infrastructure. The time generated can be set from GPS satellites through the 7600GPS option. This makes the 7600HD-REF an ideal unit for OB operation.
