    Video Processing Flow The following illustration shows the flow of operations for carrying out a transition on an M/E bank or the PGM/PST bank. Select current background video (page 25) Select next transition (page 32) Background Keys 1 to 4 Select new background video (page 25) Make key settings (page 46) Select transition type (page 39)

  • Page 25: Signal Selection

    Signal Selection You carry out signal selection with the cross-point buttons in the cross-point control block of each M/E bank or the PGM/PST bank, and the buttons in the auxiliary bus control block. The number of buttons in each cross-point row may be 16, 24, or 32, but here the description is of the 32-button case as an example.

  • Page 26: Basics Of Signal Selection

    Basics of Signal Selection Each of the M/E banks, PGM/PST bank and auxiliary bus control block has 32 cross-point buttons and three reentry buttons (four in the case of the auxiliary bus control block). These buttons are identified by numbers common to all of the banks and block, and a signal is assigned to each number.

    In addition to the signals input to the PRIMARY INPUTS 1 to 80 connectors on the rear panel of the switcher, you can also select signals generated within the switcher. Each button has assigned to it a video signal and a key signal, forming a pair. You can set these video and key combinations in a Setup menu.

  • Page 30

    Switching button numbers The rightmost (32nd) button functions as a shift button. (The shift button function can be disabled in a Setup menu.) When selecting the signals of button numbers 1 to 31, press the cross-point button for the desired signal. To select button numbers 32 to 62, hold down the shift button, and press the cross-point button for the desired signal.

  • Page 32: Transitions

    Transitions In the M/E banks and PGM/PST bank, the switch from the current video stream (appearing on the corresponding program monitor) to a new video stream is referred to as a transition. Selecting the Next Transition To execute a transition, it is first necessary to decide how the image will be changed as a result of the transition.

  • Page 33

    Inserting and deleting a key You can insert one or more of the four keys (downstream keys on the PGM/ PST bank). If you select a key which is already inserted, the transition will delete the key. A simultaneous combination of deleting and inserting keys is also possible. Key 1 Insert Delete...

  • Page 35: Independent Key Transitions

    The key priority values go from 1 to 4, with a higher priority key being “in front” as seen on the screen. Priority sequence on the screen Independent Key Transitions What is an independent key transition? In addition to common transitions, it is possible to carry out independent transitions on the keyers of the M/E banks and PGM/PST bank.

  • Page 36

    Effect of a common transition In the case shown in the previous illustration, carrying out a common transition produces the following change in the image. Same wipe is applied to Transition type: wipe background and key. Effect of a common transition Effect of use with an independent key transition The key is inserted with an independent key transition as the background changes with a common transition, providing the following result.

  • Page 37

    Simultaneous execution If the [AUTO TRANS] buttons for the two transitions are pressed simultaneously, the following is the result. Note that in both cases the common transition is a wipe and the independent key transition is a mix (dissolve). Deleting a key with simultaneous transitions: With the key inserted, it is deleted simultaneously with the two transitions.

  • Page 38

    Time offset execution with the key inserted: With the key inserted, it is deleted with the two transitions acting with a time offset. Whichever button is pressed first, when the common transition completes, even if the independent key transition is still not completed, the two end simultaneously.

    NAM (non-additive mix) In this dissolve, the current video and new video signals are compared, and the signal with the higher luminance level is given priority in the output. The current video is maintained at 100% output for the first half of the transition as the new video increases progressively to 100%, then the current video is progressively reduced from 100% to zero in the second half with the new video maintained at 100% output.

    • You can also make a setting such that when a preset color mix is completed, the next transition switches to the previous transition type automatically. This is called “one-time mode.” When only the background is changed Current video Color matte New video Preset color mix (changing background only) When a key is inserted...

    Wipe A wipe replaces the current video by the new video according to a predetermined pattern. This transition type can also be selected for an independent key transition. For details, see “Wipes” (page 56) and Chapter 5 “Wipes” (page 371). DME wipe Using a DME effect, it is possible to obtain a transition to a new image from the current image, as in a wipe.

  • Page 43: Manual Transitions

    You can set the transition rate in advance. (See “Setting the Transition Rate” (page 298).) Manual transitions Using the fader lever, you can manually control the progress of the transition. Moving the fader lever from one end of its travel to the other completes the transition.

  • Page 46: Keys

    Keys A key is an effect in which a part of the background image is replaced by an image or superimposed text. The signal determining how the background is cut out is termed “key source,” and the signal that replaces the cut-out part is termed “key fill.”...

  • Page 47: Chroma Key

    Clean mode In a luminance key, linear key or color vector key, you can enable the clean mode. When the clean mode is on, the key source does not affect the key fill, which is added unchanged to the background. This improves the keyed image quality, but means that the part of the key fill signal which is not to be inserted must be completely black, or it will color the background.

    Blink The blink function provides the following effects. Key blink: The key is inserted and deleted at the specified frequency. You can also set the frequency and the proportion of the cycle for which the key is inserted. Edge blink: Key fill and key edge fill are interchanged at the specified frequency.

  • Page 56: Wipes

    Wipes A wipe is a transition from the current video stream to a new video stream, using a wipe pattern. Changing the background by means of a wipe is referred to as a “background wipe,” and inserting or deleting a key with a wipe is termed a “key wipe.” There are two types of wipe: those that can be selected in a common transition, and those that can be selected in an independent key transition.

  • Page 57

    Note It is not possible to apply a pattern mix to an independent key transition. For details, see “Pattern Mix” (page 375). Types of pattern mix There are four ways in which patterns can be combined in a pattern mix, as follows.

  • Page 58

    Parameter settings Main pattern at 100% Start: Point in the course of the transition at which the main pattern Sub pattern at 100% is at 100% End: Point in the course of the transition at which the sub pattern is at 100% 0.00 100.00 Transition (0.00 - 100.00)

  • Page 59: Wipe Pattern Variation And Modifiers

    Main and sub modifier link function When carrying out a pattern mix, it is possible to link the modifier settings for the main pattern and sub pattern. There are two modes for this function. FULL LINK (fully linked) mode In this mode, all modifier settings are the same for the main pattern and sub pattern.

  • Page 60

    Split This splits the pattern, making the parts of the wipe move in opposite directions. Split off Split on The parameter Split No specifies the number of splits. The parameter Spacing specifies the spacing between adjacent patterns. Edge You can apply a border to the pattern, soften the edges, or soften the applied border.

  • Page 61

    Positioner You can move the wipe pattern to any position. Positioner off Positioner on • The parameter H Position controls the horizontal position of the pattern. A negative value moves the pattern to the left, and a positive value moves the pattern to the right.

  • Page 62

    Speed Through the course of the transition the wipe pattern rotates at a fixed specified speed. The parameter Speed determines the speed of pattern rotation. A value of –100.00 of the parameter Speed corresponds to one turn per second counterclockwise; a value of +100.00 corresponds to one turn per second clockwise.

  • Page 63: Aspect Ratio

    Aspect ratio You can freely change the aspect ratio of the pattern. Aspect off Aspect on (a horizontal stretch) A negative value of the parameter Aspect stretches the pattern vertically; a positive value stretches the pattern horizontally. Pattern replication (“Multi”) The same pattern can be repeated horizontally and vertically or both, up to 63 times.

    1: All replications in the same orientation 2: Even-numbered rows staggered 3: Even-numbered columns and rows inverted 4: Even-numbered columns and rows inverted, and even-numbered rows staggered Pairing This slits the pattern into multiple strips, making it like a venetian blind. Pairing off Pairing on H: Create slits in the horizontal direction.

  • Page 65

    Modulation The pattern signal can be modulated, giving waves on the horizontal or vertical edges, or radially. The parameter Shape determines the form of the modulation. 1: sine wave, 2: triangular wave, 3: rectangular wave Note When using 1080PsF mode in an HD system, the modulation function is not available.

  • Page 66

    Fringe This modulates the pattern, applying waviness in the radial direction to edges. The parameter Speed determines the speed of waves. A value of –100.00 generates the maximum counterclockwise speed of waves, and a value of +100.00 the maximum clockwise speed. Spring As the transition progresses, the edge of the pattern is subjected to barrel or pincushion distortion.

  • Page 67: Wipe Snapshots

    • The parameter Magnitude determines the size and direction of the spiral. A value of –100.00 represents the maximum movement in the counterclockwise direction, and a value of +100.00 represents the maximum movement in the clockwise direction. • The parameter Wave Speed determines the speed of the lateral waves. A value of –100.00 represents the maximum speed to the left, and a value of +100.00 represents the maximum speed to the right.

  • Page 68: Dme Wipes

    DME Wipes A DME wipe is a wipe transition that uses a DME effect to change from one video image to the next. There are two types of DME wipe: those which can be selected for a normal transition, and those which can be selected for an independent key transition. For independent key transitions, see page 35.

    Frame memory is a function whereby a frame of input video can be frozen and written to memory, for further use as material for editing. In an MVS-8000 HD system the maximum number of image frames that can be written to memory is 58 (88 frames in 720p/59.94 format), and in an SD system a maximum of 222 frames.

  • Page 79: Frame Memory Functions

    applies to the other pairs. When a pair of images are captured in pair mode, the image frozen in FM1 (3, 5, or 7) is referred to as the main file and the other frozen in FM2 (4, 6, or 8) is referred to as the sub file. Operation modes The frame memory has the following operation mode.

  • Page 80

    Note When the system is powered off, any freeze images written to temporary memory are lost. Saving an image (store) You can save an image in temporary memory which has been placed with the freeze function as a file in memory. You can save a single image in a single file and apply a name of up to eight characters to the file.

Accessing the file list Before playback and suchlike operations on a disk recorder/Extended VTR, it is first necessary to display a list of the disk recorder files on the DCU.

  • Page 150: Regions And Registers

    Regions and Registers Regions The term “region” refers to some sort of functional block of the system. When saving or recalling snapshot registers and effect registers, or creating or editing effects, you first select the region to which the operation applies. You can also select multiple regions simultaneously.

  • Page 151: Registers

    Reference region When multiple regions are selected, only one region appears in the displays for menu and numeric keypad operations. This is called the “reference region.” The reference region is determined according to the following precedence. M/E1 >M/E2 >M/E3 >P/P >USER1 > USER2 > USER3 > USER4 >USER5 >...

    [DME1] and [DME2]. Similarly, for registers in the 300 range, select three consecutive registers. Work register This is a temporary register used when editing keyframes. When you recall an effect, it is read from the effect register into the work register, and when you save, the contents of the work register are written to the effect register.

  • Page 153: Keyframes

    Keyframes A keyframe represents an instantaneous state of an image; it can be saved and recalled for reuse. Effects By arranging a number of keyframes on the time axis, and interpolating between successive keyframes, you can create an effect in which there is a continuous change from each keyframe to the next.

  • Page 154: Saving And Recalling Effects

    Saving and Recalling Effects To create a new effect, first recall an empty register, then create the keyframes one at a time in this register. To run an effect, it is also necessary to set the time and the path. To edit an existing effect, recall the register holding the effect, then make the changes.

  • Page 155

    You can edit either on a keyframe within the effect, or at any point between keyframes. Insert: Insert the current image as a keyframe. Inserting a keyframe in an existing effect may change the duration of the effect (see page 157). Modify: Modify a keyframe.

  • Page 156: Time Settings

    Difference in the effect of a paste operation Variable duration mode: The copied keyframe is inserted at the specified position. Constant duration mode: The copied keyframe is written over the specified position. Transition mode You can use an effect created with keyframes as a DME wipe pattern on the switcher.

  • Page 157

    The effect duration may also be changed by inserting or deleting keyframes. Changes in the effect duration caused by inserting a keyframe • When the effect is stopped on a keyframe, inserting a keyframe increases the effect duration by the duration of the inserted keyframe. •...

  • Page 158

    Changes in the effect duration caused by deleting a keyframe • When the effect is stopped on a keyframe, a delete operation deletes the keyframe, and reduces the effect duration by the duration of the deleted keyframe. • When the effect is stopped between two keyframes, a delete operation deletes the preceding keyframe, and reduces the effect duration by the duration of the deleted keyframe.

  • Page 159: Paths

    Delay setting You can set the delay from the time of executing an operation to run the effect, and the effect actually starting (that is, the delay until the first keyframe). You can make this setting in the keyframe control block. (See “Time Settings” in Chapter 13 (Volume 2).) Note that changing the delay does not alter the duration of the effect.

  • Page 167: Snapshots

    Snapshots The term “snapshot” refers to a function whereby the various settings required to apply a particular effect to an image are saved in memory as a set of data, for recall as required, to recover the original state. You can carry out snapshot operations using the numeric keypad control block, the Flexi Pad control block in each of the M/E-1 to M/E-3 and PGM/PST banks, and the Snapshot menu.

  • Page 168: Snapshot Attributes

    Snapshot Attributes An individual snapshot may also have attached special conditions relating to switcher or DME operation when the snapshot is recalled. These conditions are called “attributes” of the snapshot, and can be added when the snapshot is saved or recalled. Types of attribute There are five snapshot attributes, as follows.

For more details, see “Snapshot Operations in the Menus” in Chapter 14 (Volume 2).

  • Page 170: Utility

    Utility The utility function refers to a function whereby you can assign an arbitrary action or a shortcut for frequently used menu to a particular button, then instantly recall the action or menu by pressing the button. The functions you can assign include menu shortcuts, enabling/disabling functions (recalling utility commands), and recalling (shotbox registers or macro registers).

  • Page 171: Shotbox

    Shotbox The term “shotbox” refers to a function whereby for each specified region any snapshot or keyframe effect can be recalled simultaneously. The simultaneous recall setting data such as region names, snapshot numbers and keyframe effect numbers are stored in “registers.” There are 99 registers for each control panel.

  • Page 172: Setup

    Setup Overview of Setup Various settings are required, in order to operate the switcher, control panel, DME, external devices, and so on, connected together in a single system. This is referred to as “setup,” and you can carry out the setup operations from the Engineering Setup menu.
