This circuit shows a simple way to add text information to a composite-video signal that might be floating at some indeterminate de level. The text generator and composite-video source must have the same sync signal. The video-input and -output signals share the same terminal. C3 couples the video signal to the output of a rectifier circuit that is based on a subvideo-speed op amp. A faster op amp would clamp on individual sync pulses rather than on the video waveform`s average value, as is desired.

Rll serves as a pulldown resistor and feedback resistor RlO ensures that TP6 remains at ground level. Emitter follower Ql buffers the text signal, and R5 serves as a gain control. A simple clamp circuit, Q2, is sufficient for regulating amplitude, because the text signal contains no gray-scale levels. Q3 couples the text signal into the op-amp clamp circuit.
