    Before Beginning Image Creation Before considering the operations of image creation proper, this section describes how the various video sources are combined to produce the final program output. For an explanation of the terms “3.5-M/E” and “3-M/E”, see page 1-2. Video Signal Flow The DVS-7300/7350 system has three mix/effects banks and, depending on the system, a program/preset bank and downstream keyer.
  • Page 71 Before Beginning Image Creation Examples of signal flow The following examples show how the outputs of the M/E banks can be fed to each other, in the two principal system types. For convenience it is assumed here that the signals are fed in the fixed order from M/E-1 to M/E-2 to M/E-3, but in fact any of these banks can feed any of the others.

  • Page 75 Before Beginning Image Creation Using the shift function The 29 cross-point buttons in each row are numbered 0 to 28. Normally the rightmost button is the shift button; the buttons to which signals are assigned are then numbered 0 to 27 in the unshifted state, and 30 to 57 in the shifted state.
  • Page 76 Reentry buttons To use the output of one M/E bank as a background input to another M/E bank, press the corresponding button (M/E-1, M/E-2, or M/E-3) at the right of the bank. For example, to use the output of the M/E-1 bank as background B on the M/E-2 bank, press the M/E-1 button in the B row of cross-point buttons in the M/E-2 bank.
  • Page 77: Using The Mix/effects Banks

    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 78: 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) •...

  • Page 80 Background and key transitions Key cut Suppose that in step 2 of the procedure above you pressed just the KEY 1 button, and then in step 6 pressed the CUT button. This cuts key 1 in or out, i.e. instantaneously, and amounts to a cut transition on the M/E bank. On the other hand, using the KEY ON button in the key control section, you can cut the key in (or out) independently of the transition on the M/E bank.
  • Page 81: Selecting The Next Transition

    Using the Mix/Effects Banks Selecting the Next Transition In a transition you can change between the two backgrounds, or insert or remove either of the keys, or carry out any of these operations simultaneously. The following figures illustrate some possible effects. Background transition A background transition switches from the currently selected background A (old video) to background B (new video).

  • Page 84: Selecting The Transition Type

    Selecting the Transition Type The most basic distinction is between an instantaneous transition, or cut, and the various types of gradual transition. The system provides the following types of gradual transition; to select one of these, press the corresponding button in the transition control section, turning it on.
  • Page 85 Using the Mix/Effects Banks Super Mix dissolve This is another variant dissolve, in which again the new video level is increased from 0% to 100% over the first half of the transition, and the old video is reduced from 100% to 0% over the second half. It is also possible to set the video levels at the mid-point of the transition to a value other than 100%.
  • Page 86: 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.
  • Page 87: Super Mix Settings

    Using the Mix/Effects Banks Turn control knob 4 to set the transition limit. Knob Parameter Setting Trans Limit 0.00 to 100.00% • At the minimum limit setting (0%), moving the fader lever has no effect at all. • At the maximum limit setting (100%), the entire transition occurs as normal, but the background A and B buses do not flip-flop.
  • Page 88: Using The Program/preset Bank

    Using the Program/Preset Bank A 3.5-M/E system includes a program/preset (PGM/PST) bank, which provides control of the final program output, with background transitions and up to four downstream key insertions. You can control downstream key transitions either from the transition control section or from the downstream keyer control section, but this section concentrates on operations using the transition control section.

    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 99: 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 100 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 101: 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 102 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 103 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 104 Bus fixed mode and bus flip-flop mode The default operating mode for the switcher is bus flip-flop mode, in which an M/E background transition always proceeds from background A to background B, and at the end of the transition the signal selections on the two background buses flip-flop.
  • Page 105 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.
