1-1. About MBP-12GUILE/GUI
MBP-12GUILE/GUI is a software application for controlling the MBP-1244. MBP-12GUI can
also control the MBP-100CK or MBP-12CK chromakey option. MBP-12RU Remote Control Unit
for controlling the MBP-1244 is also available separately from MBP-12GUILE/GUI.
(Hereafter, MBP-12GUILE and MBP-12GUI are jointly referred to as “MBP-12GUI” in this
manual. However, the descriptions related to the MBP-100CK and MBP-12CK are intended for
MBP-12GUI only, since they can only be controlled with MBP-12GUI.)
NOTE
MBP-12GUILE cannot control the MBP-100CK and MBP-12CK.
On the Brainstorm PC in which MBP-1244 is installed or on the MBP-100CK, MBP-12Server is
installed. MBP-12GUI or MBP-12RU controls MBP-1244 or MBP-100CK through
MBP-12Server using the TCP/IP protocol. MBP-12RU is supported for switchable controls of up
to 5 MBP-1244 or MBP-100CK units. Meanwhile, multiple MBP-12RU and/or MBP-12GUI can
control the same MBP-1244.
NOTE
MBP-12GUI preinstalled on the MBP-100CK can only control the MBP-100CK on which it
is preinstalled. To control other MBP-1244 or MBP-100CK via the network, please
purchase MBP-12GUI separately.

3-3-5. Output Button Assignments
IMPORTANT
The output button assignments can be changed on MBP-12GUI even it is not
connected to the main unit or the on air lock or exclusive lock described in the section
3-14 “OPERATION LOCK” is enabled.
To change the signal assignment of the output buttons, follow the procedure below.
In this section, let us call the nine output buttons from left to right as button 1 through button 9.
1) Right-click on the output button you want to change the assignment of. The pop-up menu
appears. The currently assigned signal is indicated with a check mark.
(2) Click the signal to assign to the button. The same signal cannot be assigned to more than
one button. If the selected signal is already assigned to another button, the existing
assignment is replaced with the new assignment. The status of the button with the
canceled assignment will become NO ASSIGN. The changes made on the assignments
are automatically saved and will be retained when the application is closed, and will be
recalled at the next reboot.
21
IMPORTANT
The layer source assignments described in the section 3-3-4 “LAYER SOURCE
ASSIGN User Settings” are saved on the main unit. However, This output button
assignments are saved within the MBP-12GUI. Therefore they cannot be saved as
described in the sections 3-10 “EVENT MEMORY” and 3-13 “BACKUP (MU)”.
In the example below, the assignment to MIX of the button 6 of V1 OUT will be cancelled
when MIX is assigned to the button 1.

The signal assignments of output buttons of a channel or channels can be set the same as
the output buttons of an output channel as a set by using the user default assigning function.
(1) Right-click on the channel label (V1 OUT, V2 OUT, V3 OUT, or V4 OUT) you are going to
use as a user default assignment. The pop-up menu as shown below appears. Click
Store Current Assignments as User Default. In this example, the assignment of V1
OUT is set to user default.
(2) A confirmation dialog appears. Click OK. The assignments of the selected channel is set
to user default. This user default will be retained when the application is closed.
22
(3) Right-click on the channel label you want to set the same as the user default. Select
Assign User Default on the pop-up menu. In this example, V2 OUT is set the same as
the user default.
(4) A confirmation dialog appears. Click OK to assign.
(5) The assignments of the user default are applied to the selected channel. In this example,
the assignments made for V1 OUT are saved as user default, and the user default is
employed to V2 OUT. As a result, the button assignments of V1 OUT and V2 OUT
become the same.

3-4. CK (Not Available in MBP-12GUILE)
CK allows you to set the chromakey settings. This item is disabled if MBP-12CK (optional) is not
installed in the main unit.
MBP-12GUI allows you to switch between the chromakey setting screens of up to 4 cameras, which
are assumed to be connected to MBP-1244 through a routing switcher. To switch between cameras,
use the CAM buttons, previously described in section 2-2. (4). The settings are applied to the currently
selected camera only. To apply the same settings to multiple cameras, use COPY (CAM), described
in section 3-12. “COPY (CAM).”
First tune the settings on the left of the screen, and then fine-tune the settings in the right of the screen
as necessary.

Description
For selecting the color and the condition of the actual backing color to
select the most suitable chromakeying mode. Selecting a proper mode
enables to generate more appropriate matte (key) signal and
foreground video.
A base color for generating the matte (key) signal. Set to blue if your
background is blue, or to green if your background is green. It is
normally set with the cursor in the CK menu. BACK COLOR is defined
with the three parameters: Hue, Saturation, and Luminance. Each
parameter can be adjusted separately.
For generating the foreground video image.
Allows you to suppress the backing color of the input video image.
Increasing the value increases the suppression, and decreasing the
value decreases the suppression.
For generating the matte (key) signal.
Allows you to adjust the matte density for the colors similar to the
backing color. Increasing the value increases the density, and
decreasing the value decreases the density.

3. Release the left mouse button on the color you wish to set for BACK COLOR. The
color of the position where the button is released is set for BACK COLOR. The cursor
is turned off automatically and the cursor position is returned to the position where the
mouse is started to drag. In addition, right-clicking while holing down the left mouse
button turns off the cursor without setting BACK COLOR.
NOTE
The color set for BACK COLOR is “the color of the position where the cursor is placed
when the button is released.” The color of the cursor operation area is updated slower than
the color of the input video signal, therefore the actual color set for BACK COLOR may be
differs from the color of the cursor operation area when the button is released.
4. The other method for setting BACK COLOR, other than by dragging the mouse, is to
turn on the cursor, set the X and Y coordinates of the cursor by entering the values
directly into the box or using the ▲ and ▼ buttons, and then click the SET button. The
color of the cursor position is set for BACK COLOR. In this case, the cursor remains

Description
Allows you to specify the base of
the file name. This character string
is added to the beginning of the file
name. You can also leave this text
box empty.
Allows you to add the current date
to the file name. The following three
orders of year, month, and day are
available.
YMD: year, month, day (default)
DMY: day, month, year
MDY: month, day, year
Allows you to add the current time
to the file name in the order of hour,
minute, and second. This is fixed to
the 24-hour time notation.
A decimal counter that allows you to
set a given value. ZERO PADDING
DIGIT allows you to set the number
of digits of the counter.

 Capturing Still Images with Sequentially Numbered File Names
The CAPTURE & SAVE button works exactly the same as clicking CAPTURE >
CREATE FILENAME > SAVE. Turning on TIME, or COUNTER and AUTO INCREMENT
in advance and clicking the CAPTURE & SAVE button enables you to easily capture
images with sequentially numbered, different file names using only one button.
IMPOTANT
Although if the captured image is saved through MBP-12GUI preinstalled on the
MBP-100CK, there may be about a second difference between when the information is
added to the file name and when the file is created. This is due to the time lag between
when the file saving is started and finished, and it is not an error.
The date and time information added to the file name is generated based on the
computer where MBP-12 GUI is running. If you control the MBP-100CK through
MBP-12GUI installed on another computer, the difference of the time between the
computer and the MBP-100CK is directly applied to the time added to the file name.
38
3-8-3. Loading a Captured Still Image
A captured still image can be loaded and used as an internally generated camera image
instead of an external camera image.
NOTE
Just saving a captured image as described previously does not output the image as
the internally generated camera image. To output the captured image, please load the
file.
1. Change CK SOURCE to INTERNAL. Select CAM for the MIXER output and confirm that
the internal camera image (appears solid black if the MBP-100CK is just booted), instead
of the external camera image, is output.
