Synchronization With External Time Code Signals — Gen-Lock
To edit and compile a recording that is shot using
multiple camcorders, it is necessary to synchronize the
video and time code of the various camcorders (by
Connection for gen-lock
Connect the reference video and time code signals to
the camcorder as shown below.
Locking the video and time code signals to an
external reference signal
Locking the video and time code signals to
another camcorder's video and time code
Using one camcorder as reference, to its video and
time code signals, lock the other camcorders' video
and time code signals.
a) The output signal from the MONITOR OUT connector on the DSR-300/300P may discontinue when switching the
operation between recording and playback. Use the output signal from the VIDEO OUT connector.
Synchronization with external time code signals (by
gen-lock) may be disallowed in some cases at
ClipLink shooting. For details, see step 4 on page 66
in "ClipLink Shooting"
GEN LOCK IN
If the reference camcorder is gen-locked to an external
reference signal, any other connected camcorders are
gen-locked to the same reference signal.
