    genlock
  • composite and Y/C inputs and outputs
  • automatic input recognition with priority for the Y/C signal
  • color, contrast and luminance knobs for the source video signal
  • RGB monitor switch: switches the display between genlock and computer picture - does not affect the video outputs
  • keying active switch: allows imposing the computer picture over a static video picture - when inactive the fader can be used to dissolve between full computer and video picture
  • keying invert switch: when inactive, video is projected onto the computer image where color 0 is - when active, video is shown at positions other than color 0
  • internal blackburst generator - when no video source is connected, the genlock still can be used to record the computer image
  • standby mode - when the genlock is not needed it is possible to work on the computer without disconnecting it - all Amiga screen modes are passed through to the RGB monitor
  • for operation with the A3000's video enhancer, the "A3000" jumper has to be set on the Pluto's circuit board
  • takes power from the RGB port, but can use an external power supply too
