Part Number: DLPLCR9000EVM
Trigger output is working fine in pattern on the fly mode but we receive nothing when the device is connected in video mode.
We are using DMD in video mode as we need dynamic manipulation in our patterns. We want to see the exact time at which frame is changing and check whether there is some lag between the time pattern is shown on DMD and the computer input. In pattern mode we use trigger output for such purpose but in video mode it seems device does't give any trigger output.
Is there some option or way to get trigger output in video mode?
Hello again Aditya,
In Video Mode (not Video Pattern Mode) everything is driven by the incoming v-sync signal. It is intended that this be the same as the "output trigger"
To be clear - the incoming frame data is received and the next frame sequence starts on the next v-synce. In other words the RGB-888 data for the next frame is received while the current frame is displaying.
If there is any delay, it should be deterministic and able to be characterized.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

What you need to do is use Video Pattern Mode. You can here recreate the equivalent of video mode with the benefit of having Trigger out control.
Your setup should be to add 3 8-bit blocks (R,G,B) but only one frame change in the green block. Your setup should look like this:
Note the single frame change in Green only (in the red outline). Now you can use the Pattern Settings to control the output triggers:
I hope this helps,
