This note addresses the problem of synchronized output regulation of linear networked system where all the nodes have their outputs track signals produced by the same exosystem and the state of exosystem is accessible only to leader nodes, while follower nodes regulate their outputs via a distributed synchronous protocol. This problem can be decoupled into two: one is the output regulation problem on the synchronous manifold and the other is the stability problem of synchronous manifold. The proposed synchronous protocol is independent of the network topology. The stability of synchronous manifold is analyzed through the permissible eigenvalue region and the requirements of information graph. Finally, a numerical example illustrates the efficacy of the presented results.
