Synchronizing the Analog Signal
Video images are generated from a source, such as a camera or computer, and viewed on a source, such as a monitor. In order for the viewed image to be seen in exactly the same way and the same time frame as the generated or original image, there has to be a method for synchronizing the elements of the image. Synchronizing an image is a critical part of the analog video process.
A synchronizing generator, or sync generator as it is called, is the heart of the analog video system. The sync generator creates a series of pulses that drive all the different equipment in the entire video facility, from cameras to monitors. When viewing analog signals, the synchronizing pulses also drive ...
