It is the same as the video Black sync used in TV studios to sync the cameras together.
It allows multiple adaptors/monitors to operate using a single retrace timing reference..
This removes the rolling caused when televising a room full of computer monitors
like you see on a news/weather set.
There are some other user like video overlay that were seldom used.
It can also be also used to allow mixing and switching between monitor outputs onto video tape
or onto a split screen, without a time base corrector.
