Today, Rob is unboxing the AIDA Imaging GCON-SDI SDI to Genlock SDI/HDMI Converter, answering the question "How do I genlock a camera with no sync input?"
Ever wonder how to sync up camera sources without genlock inputs? Now you can with the AIDA Imaging GCON-SDI.
Just add your camera's SDI and a genlock reference signal, and let the GCON-SDI give you both SDI and HDMI simultaneously in perfect sync.
In addition to its rich feature set, like being able to adjust horizontal and vertical phasing, the GCON-SDI also gives you a built-in pattern generator. Think of this as a good multi-tool to keep with all your camera kits and flypacks.
This magic little box converts any SDI/3G-SDI source to Genlock SDI/3G-SDI and HDMI with zero latency, keeping the integrity of the original source feed intact. All while supporting resolutions up to 1080p/60fps.
Features Tri-Level Sync Genlock synchronizes GCON-SDI and other system components for seamless vertical interval switching between sources.
GCON-SDI supports ancillary data in both SMPTE 352 payload ID and audio and relays it through its SDI output.
