UTEL Sync Pulse Generator & Colour Bar Generator 2004
This is a sync pulse generator and colour bar generator model 2004 made by UTEL in Adelaide. This unit was kindly donated by maker of this unit as I was in need of a SPG for my camera projects as these older cameras can work better from a SPG unit. This unit consists of a sync pulse generator with multiple outputs providing the necessary sync pulses for a variety of cameras and a colour bar generator for TVs and monitors which can be provided in PAL or NTSC and in 525 lines or 625 lines. This unit will be an excellent and valuable tool for my camera projects and I look forward to putting it to great use! Here below are a number of pictures and descriptions of the controls and outputs.
