$ Gen-lock adjustment
Phase adjustments must be performed with the camera or
the RCU (RCB) when external synchronizing signals are
supplied to the system in cases where multiple cameras are
used or peripheral devices are connected.
U Horizontal phase control
Observe the waveform of the external synchronizing input
signal (black burst signal) and video output signal on a
two-channel oscilloscope. Then match the horizontal phase
of both signals by adjusting them with the cameras or RCU’s
horizontal phase control.
