4K UHD Video Synchronizer - Sync4K

Sync4K 
4K UHD Video Synchronizer

The Sync4K re-times soft synced inputs into a stable output with a fixed frame time, locked to the master video timing with a programmable line delay. The Sync4K is configured with 1 to 5 channels (referred to as synchronizing channels). Each synchronizing channel is synchronized to a master timing, which is automatically selected to be either Input 1 or the Sync Input.

Inputs

Supports up to 5 channels of DisplayPort video with resolutions up to 4096×2400 or 3840×2160

Outputs

Supports up to 5 channels of DisplayPort video with resolutions up to 4096×2400 or 3840×2160

Link Multiple Sync4Ks

Link multiple Sync4Ks for installations requiring more than 5 video channels to be synchronized

Applications

Video synchronization in training and simulation environments

OneSync Configuration Utility

Use Westar’s OneSync to configure the Sync4K for an installation application. Typical set up parameters include:

OneSync Application

Firmware Updates

OneSync supports the update of all firmware in the Sync4K.

Status Updates

View the status of the Sync4K including the master timing source (Chan 1, Sync Input, absent) and if there is video present on each input channel.

Line Delay

Programmed globally. The # of master timing lines to delay the synchronized outputs from the input master timing.

Active EDID Mode

Programmed per channel. Determines whether the active EDID, visible by the video source, is populated by a programmed EDID file, or by the connected downstream device. OneSync supports the update of the pre-programmed EDID for each channel.

Pass-through Video

Programmed per channel. Allows the video from any input to be passed through as is (including timing), rather than synced to master timing.

Ignore Video

Programmed per channel. Replaces incoming pixel data with a hard-coded color, unique per channel.
