    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.
  • Page 33 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...

  • Page 35 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.

    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.
  • Page 38: 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. The patterns that can be used for a DME wipe are as follows.

    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.

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.

    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.
