It is usual to record footage with an aspect ratio different to the one used in the final product, which makes the quality checking of the clips a bit more challenging. For this reason, Silverstack offers the possibility to overlay frame lines over the clips in the playback window, as well as for the SDI output.
The frame lines can be activated through the «Visual Controls» menu. You can open the visual controls from the Main Menu. Choose “Playback>Show Visual Controls”:

Frames lines are available for normal playback and SDI output. For more information about how to setup the SDI output in Silverstack, please refer to the article HD-SDI output in Silverstack.
