Overview This document provides a step-by-step explanation of the settings needed in order to control the DM1000 V2 from a video editor. To ensure smooth integration of the new functionality of DM1000 V2, refer to your owner’s manual as you follow the steps in this document to perform the necessary settings and tests.
The following video editors have been confirmed to work when connected to the DM1000 V2. • Sony BVE2000, 9100 (9100 requires option) • Accom Axial 2010, 2020, 3000 • Ampex ACE200 • Panasonic AG A850 1. Make settings in your video editor On your video editor that has been confirmed to work with the DM1000, make settings so that it will transmit and receive ESAM-II commands for serial control of the mixer.
Note that you cannot simply use an RS232C or RS422 straight cable or cross-cable “as is.” Refer to the pin assignment table above, and change the wiring as needed. The cable from the DM1000 must be connected to the “serial mixer control connector.”...
In order to input/output digital signals, the audio signals must also be synchronized with the DM1000 V2. For details on the word clock settings required for synchronization, refer to the DM1000 owner’s manual section “Word clock connections and settings.” 4. Enable commands to be exchanged with the video editor In the DISPLAY ACCESS section, repeatedly press the [SETUP] key to access the REMOTE (REMOTE PORT SETUP) page of the SETUP screen.
5. Verify that the DM1000 is correctly connected to your video editor Now you must verify that the DM1000 is correctly connected so that it can be controlled by the video editor. If you are unable to control the DM1000 V2 from your video editor, it is important to determine whether the fault lies in the settings of the editor or in the settings of the DM1000.
In the DISPLAY ACCESS section, press the [SETUP] key repeatedly to access the REMOTE (REMOTE PORT SETUP) page of the SETUP screen. Move the cursor to the ESAM PARITY field, and choose the same setting as the PARITY setting of your video editor. Most video editors use the EVEN setting, but some models such as the Ampex ACE200 use ODD.
7. Initialize the DM1000’s mixer settings Initialize DM1000 settings such as fader and on/off to the factory-set condition. This is done by recalling a scene memory. The procedure is described in chapter 14 Scene Memory of the owner’s manual. Use this procedure to recall scene memory 0.
9. Patch the bus signals to output jacks The crossfaded signals will be routed via buses to the video recorder used for recording. The playback audio from the video recorder used for recording will be routed via the stereo bus and output from the monitor speakers. Patch the appropriate bus to each jack in order to create this output signal routing.
ESAM-II as “machine commands.” If the video editor is using “source commands” to control the system, you must match the channel settings specified by the video editor. Some video editors allow you to choose whether to use “machine commands” or “source commands.” If your video editor supports both source commands and machine commands, we recommend that you set it to transmit and receive machine commands.) In the DISPLAY ACCESS section, press the [REMOTE] key repeatedly to access...
Select the recording VTR. Move the cursor to the REC column and press the [ENTER] key to select one REC machine from machines A-H. In this example, machine C is selected. “Pre-read” is a feature that allows a single VTR to be used as both the playback machine and the recording machine for editing.
12. Specify the output destination (bus) for the signals input to the DM1000 The signals that are input to the DM1000 will be sent via buses and output to the jacks connected to the recording VTR. Specify the routing (bus assignments) so that this will occur.
12.2 If you are using pre-read For channels to which the signals from the playback VTR and the recording VTR are being input, turn on the desired BUS 1–8 assignments. Stereo bus assignments must be turned on so that the input signals can be monitored via the stereo bus. 13.
14. Pair the input channels If the signals being played back from the VTR are stereo, using the DM1000’s Pair function will allow you to handle them as a stereo signal, and control them by a single fader and ON/OFF switch. You can pair the channels either by using the [SEL] keys or by making the setting in the LCD screen.
15. Use the panel [SEL] LED to indicate the ESAM fader on/off status When you press the [AUTO] key, the [SEL] LED of each channel will indicate the current status of the ESAM faders. Press the [AUTO] key to make it light, so that the [SEL] key of each channel indicates the ESAM FADER on/off status.
• Level settings for the TO machine Use the faders to adjust the level of the channels you want to assign to the TO machine. When ESAM commands are subsequently sent from the video editor, they will be assigned to the TO machine. The fader level at this time will be the target level for the crossfade (the ending level for the fade-in).
combination of mode settings will determine how the video editor will be performed, and will also determine the mixer commands transmitted from the video editor, thus additionally determining how the DM1000 will respond.
