A key that is inserted after (downstream) to the M/E output. This is sometimes
referred to as a DSK.
The method of signal transfer that is used for 1080P/59.94 or 1080P/50
content. This is defined by the SMPTE372M standard. It allows data transition
with increased number of frames or color depth due to dual the HD-SDI signal
transmission providing a total bandwidth of 3Gbps. Two separate cables are
required hence the name.
* Upgrade software is necessary to support on MVS-8000G, not supported on
MVS-6000 or MVS-8000GSF
The unit allows controlling external device (VTR or DDR etc) via a switcher. The
Sony DCU also has tally / GPI connections.
The MVS switcher is able to control the DCU via its dedicated device controller,
called MKS-8036A which has jog dial time code display or it can be operated by
the control panel trackball or joystick modules.
EDL (Edit Decision
A command list for executing an edit, or the list file made out of an editing
controller. This term is used with the PIE (Plug In Editor).
Fade to Black
Gradually darken then switch to black on the program output of the PGM/PST.
The position of the fader bar, move this to adjust the fader level and carry out a
manual transition. Pressing the [KF] button to turn it on allows you to use this
as a key frame fader.
Fixed Bus mode
In this mode, A-Bus signal is output when the fader lever is located at the top
end. When fader lever is located at the bottom end the B-Bus signal is output.
This is essentially the opposite of flip-flop mode where the A and B bus signal is
exchanged when the fader is moved from top to bottom.
Also see "flip flop mode".
The powerful LCD button module on the control panel which enables the user
to store and recall wipe pattern, DME Wipe Pattern, Effect, snap shot, Macro,
Shotbox and Transition rate etc.
Normally, when a background transition is carried out on an M/E bank, the
signals selected on the A and B rows of cross-point buttons are interchanged at
the end of the transition. That is to say, except during a transition, the
background output is always from the background A bus.
Also see "fixed bus mode".
A sequence of still images, which appear as a movie on playback, that is stored
in the switchers frame memory. The sequence can be captured into memory
then recalled or saved for later use. This is also referred to simply as a "clip."
The files (still files) constituting a clip are referred to as a "clip file."
Frame memory is a function whereby a frame of input video can be frozen and
written to memory, for further use as material for editing. You can also play
recorded frame memory clips (movies).
Cross point button row for selecting key source and key fill.
CCP-8000 and CCP-6000 panels have 2 bus button rows on each M/E (P/P) and
the signal for Key1 and key2 can be selected. By pressing the Key3 and Key4
button, key source and key fill for key3 and key4 are selected.
The signal that replaces the cut-out part is termed "key fill."
The signal determining how the background is cut out when using a key is
termed "key source"
The type of key source processing, various versions are available:
- Luminance Key
