The Grass Valley ADVC G4 Sync Generator with Reference In is a compact (1/3 RU), robust sync generator that puts out nine output signals and fully supports all major SD (NTSC and PAL) and HD (up to 1080p30/1080i60/720p60) formats. The nine outputs can be configured in groups of three as SD or HD signals, so you can have 6 HD outputs and 3 SD outs, for instance.

In addition, the ADVC G4 features a 48 kHz wordclock and a reference input, which makes it compatible with larger sync systems that require more than nine outputs. The reference in also enables the device to live in a secondary room and serve as an extension from the main system, if necessary.

        Comments about Grass Valley ADVC G4 Sync Generator with Reference In:

        Initially this was purchased as a backup to our bright eye tri-level sync generator. We needed this particular model because we still have a mix of blackburst and tri-level sync, and this one allows the blackburst input to sync with the tri-level. It's been great...works so well that we switched this one to our primary unit. I guess it's hard to go wrong with Grass Valley....especially at this price.
