Generating Color Bars

HDSDI output #3 on the Merlin video I/O breakout box outputs high definition color bars. To use:

  • Start->All Programs->Merlin->BRec1
  • Video->Video/Genlock Settings to bring up the settings panel

  • As shown above, select Freerun as the genlock reference. This uses the internal timer of the Merlin card to provide a correct clock reference for the HDSDI output signal on the color bars on output 3 if no other input signals are connected to genlock from.
