Introduction This manual is the User's Guide for the MVS-8000X Multi Format Switcher system. This manual describes principally the operation of the system using the CCP- 8000 of center control panels. The User's Guide for this system comprises three volumes.

DME functionality. Powerful external device interfaces By connecting to a Sony routing switcher or similar, a large system can be built. From the control panel, it is also possible to operate other equipment, including VTRs and disk recorders.
LCD displays. The signal names, and graphical representations of the patterns associated with buttons provide intuitive feedback, and allow the immediate decisions that are required in a live operating environment. Features of the MVS-8000X Multi Format Switcher System...
Basic Video Processing This section introduces basic functions used for video processing on the switcher. 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.
Inserting and deleting a key You can insert one or more of the eight 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...
Simultaneously changing the background and keys You can change any of the eight keys (downstream keys on the PGM/PST bank) and the background at the same time. Key 1 Transition Key 2 Changing the background and key 2 simultaneously Key 1 Transition Key 2 Key 4...
There are two modes for carrying out a transition: auto transitions are carried out by a button operation, and manual transitions are carried out using the fader lever. It is also possible to combine these two modes. Independent Key Transitions 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.
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. Different wipe patterns are applied to Independent key Transition type: the background and key transitions. transition type: wipe wipe...
Masks A mask allows a part of the image to be replaced by the background or a key. To prevent unwanted holes in the background, or if a key is not the desired shape, you can correct this with a mask. Resizer This function allows you to apply effects, similar to a DME, such as zoom, movement, or aspect ratio change to a part of a created key.
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. The patterns that can be used for a DME wipe are as follows.
Copy and Swap This function can be used to copy and swap the settings among the M/E-1 to M/E-3, and PGM/PST banks or between keyers. The following settings can be copied or swapped. • Overall settings for the M/E and PGM/PST banks •...
Side Flags The term “side flags” refers to the areas to left and right of an image with aspect ratio 4:3 embedded within a 16:9 frame, when these areas are filled with a separate image selected from the utility 1 bus. Image to fill the side flag Input source with aspect ratio areas (selected from utility 1...

Creation of Special Effects and Management of Data and Operations This section introduces functions used for creation of special effects, control of external devices or switcher operations, and data management. Digital Multi Effects (DME) When used with the switcher, DME allows you to add three-dimensional effects such as image movement, rotation, magnification and shrinking, as well as a wide variety of special effects.
• Disk recorder (Sony disk 9-pin protocol and video disk communications protocol) • Extended VTR (Abekas A53 protocol) For details on the devices that can be connected, consult your Sony representative. You can control an external device by previously registering timeline keyframes.
The following figure shows three keyframes created with a wipe pattern (the circle) in different positions. This is interpolated to create the effect shown. Background A Interpolated images Background B Keyframe 1 Keyframe 2 Keyframe 3 Effect execution Example of keyframes and effect execution You can save the sequence of keyframes representing a single effect in a register.
These conditions are called “attributes” of the snapshot, and can be added when the snapshot is saved or recalled. For details, see Chapter 14 “Snapshots” (Volume 2). 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.
Macro attachment Macro attachment is a function whereby a macro register is assigned to a control panel button or a particular position of a fader lever, linking the execution of the button function or a fader lever operation with a macro execution.
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.

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.
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.

Executing a Transition There are two modes of executing a transition: an auto transition by button operation or a manual transition using the fader lever. It is also possible to combine both methods, taking control with the fader lever of an auto transition which has partly completed, or complete a transition started with the fader lever as an auto transition.
Setting the Transition Rate There are three ways of setting the transition rate: using the Flexi Pad control block, Multifunction Flexi Pad control block or numeric keypad control block to enter a numeric value, or using the Misc menu to access the Transition menu for the M/E or PGM/PST bank.
Timecode display mode: Values are shown as timecode values, consisting of seconds and frames. In this display mode, a value entered in frame input mode is converted for display as a timecode value.

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. These are called “independent key transitions.” By carrying out an independent key transition in combination with a common transition, different transition types can be used for the background and keys.

If, in the Setup menus, you set insertion and deletion as independent modes, make the settings for the next transition in the independent key transition control block. Separate settings are required both when inserting a key and when deleting it. For example, with the key not inserted, if you select the transition type and carry out a transition, this will be the setting when inserting a key.
Overview 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.”...
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.
Wipe pattern key This uses the wipe pattern selected for a transition as the key source. Key wipe pattern key This uses the wipe pattern selected for an independent key transition as the key source. Note on wipe pattern modifiers In a wipe pattern key or key wipe pattern key, you can apply various modifications, depending on the pattern used, and the modifiers in common with a wipe.
Name Effect Image Drop This applies a border below and to the right border for example, of the key. You can adjust the border width, position, and density. Shadow This applies a shadow below and to the right for example, of the key. You can adjust the shadow width, position, and density.
Key drop ON mode: The key fill/key source position moves downward by eight scan lines or four scan lines. When a drop border or shadow is selected, it is possible to apply a border to the top edge of the key. Key drop OFF mode: The key fill/key source position does not move.
Key mask and background mask There are two types of mask: a key mask and a background mask. Key mask: This masks out a part of the key, which will result in the background appearing. Background mask: This masks out a part of the background, which will result in the key fill appearing.
However, in the case of a chroma key, it excludes color cancel, Y balance, foreground CCR, window, and shadow.) Full mode: All settings except transition (the same parameters as simple mode, Fine Key, key modifiers, main and sub mask settings, chroma key detailed settings, and so on) For the settings for these modes, see “Settings Relating to Keys, Wipes, Frame Memory and Color Correction (Key/Wipe/FM/CCR Menu)”...

Chroma Key Composition In creating a chroma key image, either a normal mix or an additive mix can be used. To select which, use the Type >Chroma Adjust menu for the keyer. Normal mix: The foreground is cut out with the key signal, and then combined with the background, which has also been cut out with the key signal.
Using the plane function In an additive mix, since no key is applied to the foreground, any variations in the (typically blue) background may appear in the composite image. To avoid this, a particular luminance level can be set for the (blue) background, and regions of lower luminance forcibly cut.
parameter, and the “Crop” parameter, which determines the degree of truncation (see the following figure). Angle Reference color specified by Hue setting Crop Range of colors remaining Range of colors creating the key signal as foreground (to be replaced by background signal) a) The Crop and Angle values do not change even if you use the auto chroma key function.
Video signal adjustment You can vary the foreground signal gain, or change the hue. There are separate adjustments for the gain of the overall video signal, and Y and C components. Making auto chroma key adjustments Auto chroma key is an automatic adjustment function which allows you to specify a part of the foreground video (for example, the blue background color) and use it as a reference for creating the chroma key image.
