Peter Donebauer & The Videokalos
I always thought that most video synthesizers were a product of 1970s American experimental film and video art but I'm finding more and more instances of project based in other countries. Here is a synthesizer from Britain! The Videokalos was developed in 1975 and 1976 by Peter Donebauer (a pioneer of british video art) with help from ex EMS engineer Richard Monkhouse who also developed The Videosizer and the Spectre. There are some excellent essays and information about it and video art in general on Peters site so I wont repeat it here go there!
