    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 19 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 21: Independent Key Transitions

    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.
  • Page 22: Keys

    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: transition type: the background and key transitions.
  • Page 23: Wipes

    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 24: Frame Memory

    You can also specify the wipe direction, or set the pattern position, applying various changes and modifiers to the selected DME wipe pattern. Resizer DME wipes Using the resizer, you can carry out key DME wipes. For details, see Chapter 6 “DME Wipes” (page 221). Frame Memory Frame memory is a function for using a still image or video (frame memory clip) as material for editing.

  • Page 119: Executing A Transition

    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.
  • Page 120: Setting The Transition Rate

    For example, in the previous illustration, it can be seen that the transition is more than half completed. When the transition is completed, all of the LEDs go off. Setting the Transition Rate There are two ways of setting the transition rate: using the 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.

  • Page 127: Executing A Transition With The Fader Lever (Manual Transition)

    Executing a Transition With the Fader Lever (Manual Transition) 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. To execute a manual transition with the transition control block fader lever, use the following procedure.
  • Page 128: Fader Lever Operation In Bus Fixed Mode

    In a non-sync state, two lit LEDs indicate the position from which a normal transition can be carried out. This is either at one end position or both end positions of the fader lever travel. Moving the fader lever toward the position of the lit LEDs does not carry out a transition, but when the fader lever reaches the end position the non-sync state is released, and it is now possible to carry out the next transition.
  • Page 129 background output is always from the background A bus. This is called “flip- flop mode.” The alternative is known as “bus fixed mode,” in which there is no bus interchange. In this mode, when the fader lever is at the top of its travel the output from the A bus is always 100%, and when the fader lever is at the bottom of its travel the output from the B bus is 100%.
  • Page 130 • If as a result of an auto transition, for example, the fader lever position does not agree with the signal output, this is a non-sync state (see page 127) and LEDs light at both end positions of the fader lever travel. Moving the fader lever does not carry out a transition, but when the fader lever reaches the end position the non-sync state is released, and it is now possible to carry out the next transition.

    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.

    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.

    Overview 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.
