Chapter 1. Video

This chapter explains

DIVO/DIVO-DVC and GVO Panels

Figure 1-1 shows connectors on the DIVO/DIVO-DVC I/O panel. To aid reading the connector labels, this figure shows the panel sideways.

Figure 1-1. DIVO/DIVO-DVC Ports

Figure 1-1 DIVO/DIVO-DVC Ports

The DIVO/DIVO-DVC board's XIO interface transmits the video signals between the connectors and system main memory.

Figure 1-2 shows connectors on the DG5-2/GVO I/O panel. This panel has the connectors for the DG5-2 board and its daughter board, the GVO. The GVO is available only as a daughter board for the DG5-2.


Note: For brevity, the DG5-2/GVO panel is referred to as the GVO panel in the rest of this chapter.

The connectors on the left in Figure 1-2 are actually DG5 connectors; the GVO board itself has only two connectors, labeled 601 A Link and 601 B Link. These are outputs, corresponding to OUT LINK A and OUT LINK B on the DIVO or DIVO-DVC board.


Note: All DIVO/DIVO-DVC and GVO BNCs are 75-ohm.
