About the automatic title generation
By default, clips on each disc are assigned names in the
range C0001.MXF to C0300.MXF. For this reason, two
discs can contain clips with the same names. The
automatic title generation function allows you to assign
titles to all of the clips on several discs, which facilitates
clip management. For example, if the titles TITLE00001 to
TITLE00020 are assigned to clips C0001.MXF to
C0020.MXF on disc 1, then the titles TITLE00021 to
TITLE00037 are assigned to clips C0001.MXF to
C0017.MXF on disc 2.
Titles are made up of prefixes, up to 10 characters in
length, and five-digit serial numbers such as TITLE 00001.

You can assign title prefixes by choosing from a prefix list
stored in internal memory, or by entering the prefix
