    Using the Mix/Effects Banks This section describes some of the effects which you can create using mix/ effects banks. Backgrounds and Keys You can use each of the mix/effects banks to insert one or two keys into a background video image. To define a key requires two video signals, the key source, which specifies which part of the background is cut out, and the key fill, which supplies the different video to insert in the cutout.
  • Page 95: Basic Operating Procedure

    Key types For each of the M/E banks, you can use the following key types. See the page numbers indicated in parenthesis for more details. • Luminance key (page 4-39) • Linear key (page 4-40) • Clean key (page 4-40) •...

It is also possible to set the video levels at the mid-point of the transition to a value other than 100%.
  • Page 103: Setting A Transition Limit

    Setting a Transition Limit Normally the range of a transition corresponds to a complete switch from the old video to the new video. Alternatively, using the transition limit function, you can restrict the extent to which the transition is executed, so that in the state corresponding to a 100% movement of the fader lever, the transition is still incomplete.

    Executing a Transition This section describes the transition execution modes, transition rate setting, and the procedure for executing a transition. Overview Transition execution modes There are two modes: the auto transition mode, carried out by pressing buttons, and the manual transition mode, using the fader levers. It is also possible to combine these two techniques.
  • Page 116: Setting The Transition Rate

    Executing a Transition Setting the Transition Rate You can set the rate of an auto transition, by specifying the duration as the number of frames required. Use the following procedure to set the transition rate before pressing the AUTO TRANS button to carry out an auto transition. To set the transition rate, first specify the bank or keyer for which you wish to carry out the setting, then enter the numeric value from the numeric keypad section.
  • Page 117 Specifying the keyer when using a KEY MIX button When using a KEY MIX button to carry out a key transition on an M/E bank keyer, to specify what the transition rate setting applies to, hold down the TRANS RATE button in the numeric keypad section, then press the keyer delegation button in the key control section of the corresponding M/E bank.
  • Page 118: Executing A Transition

    Executing a Transition Executing a Transition This section describes how to execute a transition on an M/E bank or the PGM/PST bank of a 3.5-M/E system. Note that for the PGM/PST bank, it is only possible to execute the transition using the transition control section.
  • Page 119 Fading a key in or out on an M/E bank using the KEY MIX button Press the corresponding KEY MIX button in the key control section. This begins the transition at the preset rate. During the fade in or fade out, when the key is inserted in the output from the M/E bank, the KEY ON button lights amber, and if it is present in the final program output, the KEY ON button lights red.
  • Page 120 Executing a Transition Switching from manual to auto transition control • If you press the CUT button, the transition completes instantaneously. • If you press the AUTO TRANS button while using the fader lever to control a transition, auto transition control starts from the transition state represented by the current fader lever position, and completes the transition at the set rate (taking a time proportional to the remaining transition).
  • Page 121 A which feeds the output of each of the mix/effects banks, and always a background A bus tally indicator which is lit. The DVS-7300/7350 I/O expansion system can also, however, operate in bus fixed mode. This treats the two background buses A and B equally: a transition may go from A to B, or back from B to A, and there is no automatic flip-flop.
  • Page 122 Executing a Transition Fader lever operation in bus fixed mode • In the bus fixed mode there is a fixed relationship between the position of the fader lever and the signal output on each bus. Depending on the direction of the transition, the fader lever must therefore always be moved in a particular direction, as shown in the following table.
