Video Synchronization

Pandoras Box Systems offer a network based automatic frame adaptive video synchronization.

No matter the input protocol, once a Master/Client setup is set up, all control data that is sent across the network via Pandoras Box MediaNet will be processed in sync on all connected Client machines.

A few words about video synchronization and timecode sync:

In order to deliver a frame accurate synchronization all connected Client systems synchronize themselves with the Master at any time. This means that - independent from running sequences videos that are played back in play loop - freewheel mode will stay in sync with each other. This is also important for external input protocols that do not provide a synchronization method like DMX, GPI or many others.

The remote input protocol commands are collected as a series of commands on the Master unit and then processed in sync to the Master's time clock for each configuration.

It also very important, when video synchronization should be used, that all videos are used as elementary video files only, otherwise the embedded audio will disconnect the video sync and sync to the audio only.

This is important for content production and encoding: If you want to playback audio files in sync to an entire network system, the audio files must be played back through the sonic emotion audio device built into every Master system.

The sonic emotion real-time audio player and time synchronizer ensures that all audio files that are played back through dedicated audio track will stay in sync with the Masters time clock.
