To Jay Chichon,

yes Jay, I remember gen lock very well! Gen lock made a multiple remote broadcast a nightmare! Trying to convince a director that you could not dissolve or do split screens instantly without first "gen locking" became a challenge until-------frame synchronizers or as we called them"frame syncs"came along.shows such as NFL TODAy with its many football remotes made it necessary to find another way,the frame sync solved the problem.

And I remember when we got the first two Frame Syncs into the B.C.
They were in 7' high racks! Now they are in one rack unit frames
or just a single chip!
