SyncLok is a proprietary technology developed by CombiTech. Professional (broadcast) vision mixers use genlock to ensure proper synchronisation between sources. This requires expensive cameras, video players, IP and other video sources. Not all VidBlasterX users will have a budget for this, so a different solution is required. Many (software) manufacturers "fix" this issue by using one master clock, and more or less synchronise video sources to that. This will not work for equipment that provides its own clock, like cameras and incoming IP transmissions, nor for setups with multiple video streams. It also increases latency as buffering is required. SyncLok overcomes these issues and in most cases works just as well as the original genlock. SyncLok carefully examines the timing of all video input signals and their internal routing, and dynamically adjusts clocks in real time so they are properly synchronised. For broadcast quality video output SyncLok needs to be enabled (see Video > Options) and obtained for the main studio cameras. The status of SyncLok can be (optionally) seen in a module's display (see Appearance > OSD > SyncLok).
