Looking for a sync gen

Please note, this blog has been archived and now lives at

We had a Videotek sync generator go out on us a month ago. It's been sitting at Videotek since then, and yesterday I got word that they couldn't reproduce (or, consistently reproduce?) the problem, and were shipping it back. Bummer.

So we're in the market for a new sync gen. I'm thinking either going with a fairly basic Videotek VSG-201D which is pretty much a direct replacement for the model we had, or else a Tektronix TG700 decked out with the analog burst and digital signal generators. The advantage of the Tektronix is that it does trilevel sync for use with HD. The disadvantage is that I'm guessing it's about 10x the cost.

Who else makes a decent sync gen? I guess I should just wait till next week to sort it out ...

We are about to list a Tektronix HDVG7 HDTV Digital Video Generator Module
for Tektronix Video TV TG700 Multi-Format Mainframe

In case you are looking for one of these.
