Use AWG to generate PAL video pattern?

(1/2) > >>

Chalky:
Is there an AWG out there that would let me easily generate a simple, static, PAL video signal?  Something like the Rigol DG4062?

When I say easy, I guess I'm thinking of 1 of 2 methods:
  1. A 'TV PAL' built-in waveform.  Great!  :)
  2. I understand exactly what my video signal should look like, so I daresay I could construct the pattern and produce a CSV/XML/whatever data file of the signal I want - the AWG would need some mechanism for importing a pattern from file.
 3.  Anything else!

Any ideas?  Cheers!

Test and measure :

are selling a Tektronix TSG131A PAL Signal Generator but it is rather pricier than the DG4062 (though not by that much) and I guess the shipping to Australia would be prohibitive.

Chalky:
That unit looks good, but am hoping to find an AWG that does this, to avoid investing in both AWG and dedicated video signal generator, if I can.  Budget is tight.

The Rigol scope demo board will produce a PAL signal:

But I don't know if that would be flexible enough for you.

IMHO you should be able to buy a PAL videogenerator for peanuts. Repair shops are dumping them all the time. Look on Ebay and try to make a deal on a 'buy it now' item. I recently got some equipment for half the asking price but OTOH I did buy the entire lot 8)
