There are lots of different names for these plugs. Fortunately for us all, they are not easily confused in the size and shape While all the outputs of the SE are very high quality, keep in mind that the video quality of the various formats, in descending order, goes like this: SDI serial digital , Y. This device allows you to make the SE do certain things at the specific moment you press the trigger, such as making transitions and effects happen. Page Quick Start Do this: Connect the recorder, input, and monitor devices as shown.

Turn on all peripherals, then power up the SE Page 17 Do this: Connect the recorder, input, and monitor devices as shown. Page 18 Do this: Connect the recorder, input, and monitor devices as shown.

When the button is inactive, audio must be switched manually. Page 26 For more information, see Mode select in the Using Transitions section, page 35, and Mode select in the Using Effects section, page Page 27 There are 8 mosaic patterns to choose from, selected by repeated presses of the up and down buttons.

The effect can be applied to the whole image or one of two window sizes, which can be positioned anywhere on the screen. Page 28 Faders: sliders to control audio levels for the Main audio output mix. Each is active when the LED on the Audio bus selector button For more information, see Audio Inputs, Levels, and Meters, page Their purpose is to stabilize the video signals as they come into the switcher, and to synchronize their timing so that they can be switched and otherwise combined with no disruption to the video signal.

In other words, these settings remain in effect until they are changed or the Reset All button is pressed see Color Processor below. Page 31 Brightness, Contrast, Color, and Tint are pressed. U stands for Unity, or perhaps Unchanged. In either case, it shows that the signal passing through that particular control is being neither boosted nor cut.

To change the settings, press the up and down arrow buttons. Page 32 Appendix: Monitor Calibration, page In other words, these settings remain in effect until they are changed or either the Reset or the Reset All button is pressed. Page 33 Audio Input Level Calibration Procedure The first step in setting up the audio for a session with your SE consists of adjusting the levels on each channel you will be using. If it is, you will only be able to adjust the audio for whichever channel is selected on the Main Video Source bus.

Page 34 These faders correspond to the selector buttons above and control the relative volume of each input in the master output as well as the master output level. They are called faders because they are used to decrease rather than increase the signal levels to make a balanced and pleasing mix. When they are set at Unity, at 6, they pass the audio signal through at the same level it was at when it entered this bus. Page 35 When engaged, this control allows you to compensate for delays in the video as it travels through the various components, processors, and converters of the Switcher, so that the video maintains sync with the audio.

The SE can do 4 kinds of transitions: cut, fade, wipe, and zoom. The cut is a simple switch from one input source to another, and can be accomplished by selecting a source on the Main Source Bus, and then selecting a second one. Page 37 Auto-play The Take-button automatically plays the selected transition between the selected sources.

Parameters effect variation and speed are displayed in the windows above the Keypad. See the next section below for more information. Using the Keypad to customize a transition The windows at the top of this section display parameter data relating to the selected effect. Page 38 Mode selects and use The default mode for the SE, and the one you will use most often, is Video.

Single channel effects are produced on the source selected in the Main Video Source bus and need no second video input. Simple as that! There are no parameters, no variations. Press the button once, and the video freezes, press it again, and it returns to the selected source in full motion. The Freeze effect is single channel, and can work in conjunction with any transition.

Then you can use the joystick to position the effect in real time, anywhere on the screen. When you exit the effect, the position will be remembered as long as the Position Control LED is lit. Page Border Border These controls are used in conjunction with the Picture in Picture Effect and the Zoom and Wipe transition only, and can only be activated when either the Picture in Picture or Zoom control is active. Page Chroma Key Sample applications We figured, being practical minded, that the best way to show off what the SE can do is to give you some examples of how it could be used in real life situations.

Personnel required for this operation, aside from the on camera talent, are 2 camera operators, a sound mixer, and the SE operator, presumably you. Advances in technology, specifically the SE, have dramatically widened the performance possibilities, increased the ease of set up and use, and decreased the cost.

Page Troubleshooting These set ups can be modified for use in a lot of different situations. Please let us know how you are using your SE, and take a look at the web site to see how others are using their SEs!
