Additionally, it comes with Ambient Control Network, which brings wireless timecode settings to its footage for genlocking
(synchronisation essential for multi-cam setups).
Sony is contributing to standardization of SMPTE 2059, a Precision Time protocol that permits the seamless switching of different devices over IP to achieve broadcast quality IP genlocking
(synchronizing) of the video sources is expensive in terms of the added cabling cost, board area and control processing requirements.
The FS450 supports genlocking
for studio broadcast sync, studio-grade timing and encoding, S-video, CVBS, and component RGB or YUV outputs.
