The Mentor RG is a 1RU signal sync, test and clock generator for SDI and IP-based mixed environments. It provides IEEE-1588 PTP references alongside more traditional Black Burst and Tri-Level sync signals. The signal reference generator references a GPS antenna system to establish timecode, which is then passed on to the mission-critical automation system.
The Mentor CX changeover unit provides manual, GPI, or automatic changeover between a pair of Mentor RG sync generators for the maximum possible availability for on-air applications. Capable of switching up to 22 channels of mixed video, audio and timecode signals, the Mentor CX will cover many applications where more than one main sync and test generator needs to be backed up.
