What is video blackburst?

Blackburst is an analog video signal that contains sync information (frame rate) but no picture information. It serves the same function as Word Clock, but for video devices. It serves as a timing reference for VTRs and non-linear editors so that they can achieve frame-accurate locks during edits and transfers.
