Abstract : This technical report describes the design, interface, and operation of a general purpose raster scan display Color Video Insetter (CVI) which is capable of airborne operation. The CVI is divided into two independent functions, a color insetter section and a synchronization generation and distribution section. The color insetter which operates on standard red, green, and blue color signals will select one of two background video inputs for display on up to three color monitors and inset into the background externally generated dynamic color features, fixed color features, or both. There is also a separate monitor output to display only the color inset features. The synchronization generation and distribution section is capable of internal generation of television synchronization signals and distribution of these signals to six external users. There is also an external mode in which the synchronization circuitry operates as a distribution amplifier providing six outputs for each of three inputs from an external master synchronization source. Figure 1 shows the front panels of both the CVI and the control units. All input and output lines and control functions are located on these two panels.
