Trilogy has a successful 20 year track record of delivering advanced, reliable Sync and Test generators to major broadcast, post and cable/satellite users in over 70 countries. Designed to satisfy the demands generated by mixed analogue, SD and HD/3G installations, Mentor XL is the most sophisticated and reliable Master Reference Generator available.
Mentor XL's innovative architecture avoids the need for numerous option boards or factory upgrades by allowing most optional features to be activated in software via an IP connection. This ensures that units may be easily upgraded in the field whilst also further enhancing the unit's reliability.
Analogue, SD and HD references and test signals are generated simultaneously for both 525 and 625 standards with independent timing control for all outputs to simplify system integration. Special attention has been paid to the audio section with multiple audio generators assignable for AES, embedded SD/HD, wordclock and stereo audio.
All HD and Tri-level sync formats are accommodated either within the base unit or by fitting the appropriate option board. HD test patterns are available in all of the recognised 1.485 Gb/s standards or, with the optional 3G output board, in any of the extended 2.970 Gb/s formats.
The optional GPS receiver provides an extremely stable and robust method for accurately locking multiple SPGs and also for governing the unit’s LTC, VITC and NTP outputs, whilst the SNMP agent permits remote status monitoring of critical functions.
The browsable Vector application allows remote configuration and monitoring of all system parameters, in addition to managing software and feature upgrades.
For enhanced security, redundant Mentor XLs may be deployed together with the compatible MasterMind unit. This failsafe, modular changeover monitors the integrity of both main and reserve reference signals to effect an automatic switch to the reserve unit. Optional boards for detection of Tri-level sync, LTC, AES and SDI may also be fitted.
