Who remembers "Gen Lock"? In the early days of TV broadcasting each studio and remote originations had their own "Sync Generator". Thus you could not "dissolve" or cut to another video source without frame rolls etc. They developed "Gen Lock" to correct this problem but many times Directors did not consider this requirement and called for dissolves to remotes without warning the TD to Gen Lock to the remote.
