    • sync and burst lock - output video is referenced to the incoming video
    • burst lock - for editing systems that need to maintain correct SC/H phasing
    • sync lock - for laying computer graphics over a monochrome signal
    • internal reference
  • black burst generator
  • video mixer - capable of manual, automatic or software controlled transitions
  • adjustable fade rate, fade level, key level, key normal / invert, quick fade and auto fade to video or to graphics
  • consists of two cards, connected to each other with ribbon cables
    • Video Interface - goes to the video slot, the remote control box attaches to its DB25 connector
    • Encoder / Genlock - installs into an XT slot (takes power only), the breakout cable with four BNC connectors attaches to its DB9 port
