Features
OverDrive® Caprica Support
Thank you for buying a Ross Video Carbonite Black
Series Multi-Definition Live Production Switcher. The
Carbonite Black series builds on the Ross Video
reputation for designing switchers that fit the needs of
any production environment.
Carbonite can be controlled from OverDrive® using the
Caprica interface. This interface allows OverDrive® to
perform memory recalls, transitions, and run custom
controls on the switcher. For information on setting up
Caprica to interface with the switcher, refer to the
documentation that came with your Caprica server.
Analog Reference Input and Output
The switcher must be in a 2.5 ME mode or have 3 MEs
installed to be controlled by Caprica.
The switcher supports both external and internal reference
sources. The external reference can be an input from a
house sync to the single reference input BNC. The
internal reference can also be used as a house sync with
selectable tri-level sync or analog black burst with
independent H/V settings for each of the two reference
output BNCs.
Although tri-level sync is recommended as your reference
source for all HD applications, analog black burst can
be used when operating the switcher.
3G and 1080p 29.97 Video Formats
The switcher supports the 1080p 59.94Hz, 1080p 50Hz,
and 1080p 29.97Hz video formats. To operate in these
modes, the switcher must be restarted and some features
and resources are limited or unavailable.
Integrated Up/Down Converters
All switchers come with integrated up/down converters
and frame synchronizers (FSFC) capable of converting
1080i or 720p to SD, as well as convert SD signals to
1080i, or cross-convert 720p to 1080i.
Custom Controls
This feature brings the power of macros to the switcher
operator. Button presses, menu selections, event
commands, or even the switcher state can be recorded
to a custom control with pauses or holds between the
events. A simple button press can play these events back
again. Step through complex show openings as easily as
pressing Custom Control buttons 1, 2, then 3.
Device Control
The switcher can control a number of external devices,
such as video servers and robotic cameras. For a complete
list of supported devices, and information on how to set
up and control these devices, visit the Ross Video website
(rossvideo.com/production-switchers/carbonite/interface-list).
10 • Features — Carbonite Black Setup Manual (v12.1)
DVE (Fly Key)
The advanced 2D DVE comes standard with each
switcher, and can be used for performing over the
shoulder, or picture in picture shots. This allows all key
types to be zoomed, cropped, and repositioned
horizontally and vertically to create the look you want,
or you can use one of the useful pre-built 2D effects to
perform 2D background transitions.
Effects Dissolve
The Effects Dissolve feature allows you to interpolate
from one memory to another using a memory recall. The
switcher will interpolate from the starting memory to the
destination memory, creating a smooth, two key frame
effect.
Source
Effect
Destination
Effect
Only elements such as clip level and pattern position can
be interpolated in the effects dissolve. Other elements,
such as crosspoint selection, pattern, and next transition
data are recalled first, and then the switcher will slew to
the recalled memory.
An effects dissolve can be performed on as many
elements and MEs as required, based on the memory that
is being recalled.
General Purpose Interface (GPI)
The switcher is equipped with 34 GPI I/Os that can be
assigned as either an input or output independently.
The GPI inputs allow the switcher to interface with
peripheral equipment such as editors. Each GPI input
can be used to perform simple editing and switcher
functions such as fade to black or an auto transition.
LiveEDL
Edit Decision Lists (EDL) are files used by non-linear
editing (NLE) suites to aid in post-production. Your
switcher can capture EDL data in a file that you load into
your NLE suite.
For information on using the LiveEDL feature, visit the
Ross Video Website (rossvideo.com).
Media-Store
Up to 4 independent channels of still/animations are
available switcher-wide, allowing for thousands of full
screen stills and logos that can be cached and used on
the switcher.
Media-Store provides 8 GB of cache. The number of
images cached increases considerably when smaller,
non-full screen images like logos are loaded from USB.
MediaWipe
A MediaWipe allows you to use an animation from the
Media-Store to play over a background or key transition.
When the transition starts, the switcher plays the selected
animation over top of the background and keys that are
being transitioned. A cut, dissolve, wipe, or DVE wipe
is then performed layered under the animation to bring
up the next shot when the animation ends.
UltraChrome
The UltraChrome chroma keyers uses advanced video
processing technology to provide exceptional blue spill
reduction and clean edges, even with difficult source
material. Glass, smoke, translucent materials, and natural
shadows are handled superbly.
There are 2 floating Chroma Keys that are available
across all MEs.
MemoryAI Recall Mode
We take the guessing out of memory recalls by ensuring
that a memory recall will not affect what is currently
on-air. MemoryAI uses the content of the memory to
configure the Next Transition area and Preview bus for
the background and keyers so that the next transition
takes the same sources on-air that were on-air in the
memory.
For example, store a memory that has a key on-air with
CAM1 and CAM2 selected on the background. When
this memory is recalled normally, it pops the same key
on-air with CAM1 and CAM2 on the background. When
the memory is recalled with MemoryAI turned on, CAM1
is selected on the preset bus, and CAM2 is selected on
a key that is not on-air. The transition area is then set up
for a background transition to bring CAM2 onto the
background, take any on-air keys off, and take a key
on-air with CAM1.
Memory System
Storage for 100 complete switcher snapshots per ME,
MiniME™, and MultiScreen comes standard with all
switchers. All of these memories can be stored to a USB
media drive, providing custom tailored memories for
every operator and every show.
ME Effect System
The ME (Multi-level Effect) systems are standard. The
number of MEs depends on the chosen switcher model.
Each ME provides 4 keyers supporting pattern mask,
box mask, self-key, linear key, and an UltraChrome
advanced chroma key for each ME and is available to
each keyer.
MiniME™
The MiniME™ is an additional ME that is provided with
the switcher to perform basic dissolves and cuts. Each
MiniME™ has 2 keyers, background, and preset buses.
Unlike a full ME, the MiniME™ only supports dissolves
and cuts, restricts key 1 to DVE keys only, and has no
preview output. Key 2 on a MiniME™ is the same as an
ME keyer. The MiniME™ shares all the same sources as
the ME.
DashBoard Integration
Carbonite it fully integrated with DashBoard allowing
you to set up and control your switcher from any
computer running DashBoard and an ethernet connection
to the switcher frame.
MultiViewer
Each MultiViewer allows you to view up to 16 video
sources, in 39 different layouts, from a single output
BNC. Any video source on the switcher, including ME
Program, Preview, and Media-Store channels, can be
routed to any box on the MultiViewer. All boxes on the
MultiViewer output include mnemonic source names
and red and green tallies.
The Carbonite Black comes standard with 2
broadcast-quality integrated MultiViewer generators and
the Carbonite Black+ comes standard with 5. The
MultiViewer outputs on the Carbonite Black+ are only
available on dedicated output BNCs. Each of these
MultiViewer outputs has a specific range of input and
output BNCs that can be assigned to boxes on the
MultiViewer.

Clean Feed Output
Clean feed is typically used for bilingual and live-to-tape
productions. It provides a second Program output that is
derived from a different location than the standard
program output. A frequent application is the recording
of shows for later airing without call-in phone numbers
inserted.
The clean feed output can come from before or between
the keyers.

Tally Outputs
The switcher has 34 assignable tally relays located in the
rack frame. Each tally can be assigned to any number of
combinations of input and output or bus.
Network Connections
The control panel connects to the frame in one of three
ways, depending on the model of control panel or option
you have.
•
•
•
Carbonite Black — panel connects to the frame over
a standard ethernet connection
CarboNET — panel connects to the CarboNET over
a serial connection and the CarboNET connects to
the frame over a standard ethernet connection
Carbonite — panel connects to the frame over a
serial connection (Panel to Frame port)
The ethernet connection from the frame is also used to
upload stills to the Media-Store channels, download
switcher data files, or control switcher functions using
DashBoard.
Frame Network Setup (Ethernet)
If you are connecting to the frame over ethernet you must
use DashBoard to set the IP address of the frame. The
frame comes from the factory set with a static IP address
(192.168.0.123) but can be set to use DHCP to
automatically obtain an IP address.
Note: If you use a DHCP server, it must be set to always give
the frame the same IP address. DashBoard, the Carbonite Black
control panel, and CarboNET need a fixed IP address to connect
to.
Tip: If you do not know the IP address of the frame, you can
set DIP switch 3 on the frame to lock the IP address to
192.168.0.123. The frame must be re-started for the new IP
address to be applied.
Connecting to the Switcher from DashBoard
DashBoard should automatically detect and connect to
the frame once it is connected to the same subnet. If you
have trouble discovering the switcher frame, or it is
located on another subnet, you can manually connect
DashBoard to the switcher to establish communications.
Once connected, DashBoard will remember the
connection until you remove it.
To Manually Connect to the Frame from
DashBoard

Video Reference
Input Reference
Usable Format
1080p 29.97Hz
The flexible reference system in the switcher allows you
to use an Interlaced video format as the reference to
operate the switcher in a video format of the same
frequency. Choosing a progressive video format as a
reference limits you to operating the switcher only in
that same video format and frequency. For example, if
you have a 1080i 59.94Hz input reference you can
operate the switcher in 720p 59.94Hz, but not 1080i
50Hz. However, if you have a 720p 59.94Hz input
reference, you can only operate the switcher in 720p
59.94Hz.
Supported Reference Formats
The switcher supports a number of reference modes for
both internal and external reference signals. References
to 1080p 59.94Hz (A) and 1080p 50Hz (A) refer to 1080p

Supported FSFC Input Mode Video Formats
FSFC can only convert between specific video formats
at a given frequency. The available conversions also
depends on the switcher mode you are in.
•
Frame Sync and Format Conversion
The switcher has multiple input frame synchronizer /
format converter (FSFC) and input de-interlacers that
can be used to convert video input signals to the format
that the switcher is operating in, as well as correct
mistimed, or drifting, video input signal. The frame
synchronizers cannot completely correct badly formatted
video, mistimed switches, signal drops, or similar issues.
Carbonite Black+ has 11 additional output format
converters that can be used to convert the output video
signal from the video format that the switcher is operating
in to another format required by a downstream device.
Each FSFC channel maintains a separate setting for
different video formats. This lets you change between
video formats without losing FSFC channel
configurations.
Keep the following in mind when working with Frame
Synchronizers and Format Converters:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
If a video format not compatible with the currently
defined conversion is used, the video image is frozen
with the last successfully processed image frame.
FSFC create a one-frame delay in the video output
of the switcher for the video signal being converted.
FSFC strips embedded audio data from the video
signal. Ensure that no FSFC channels are assigned
to any input or bus you are using with external audio
mode.
In the standard mode on Carbonite Black, the FSFCs
are fixed to the first 6 input BNCs.
The output format converters in the Carbonite Black+
frame are only available on output BNCs 11 to 22.
If one FSFC channel in a bus-pair is turned off, the
paired FSFC channel is also turned off.
In the Standard switcher mode, the switcher cannot
frame sync a 1080pSF video format on input BNC
1. All other inputs work correctly.
The FSFCs used in the switcher conform to the
SMPTE ST 125:2013 standard. Some older
equipment may not fully conform to the current
•
The switcher supports synchronized and
unsynchronized 1080p and 1080i inputs. The 1080i
inputs are converted using a 4-line interpolator and
may result in lower quality video.

Output Reference Synchronizers
The output reference synchronizers allow you to have
the switcher output a reference signal that other devices,
such as cameras and video servers, can lock to.
•
Note: Different applications require different output reference
formats and delay settings. Consult a facility engineer for
assistance in configuring these settings.
•
To Set Up an Output Reference Sync
If you are using one of the output references to time
external devices, ensure that they are connected to the
appropriate REF OUT output BNC.
Tip: Output Reference Sync settings can also be set up from
the Reference tab on the Configuration node in DashBoard.
1. Press MENU > REF > NEXT.
2. Use the RefO knob to select the reference output
BNC that you want to set up.
3. Press the RefO knob.
4. Use the RefO knob to select the reference format
you want to output from the switcher.
The available output reference formats depend on
the video format that the switcher is operating in.
You must be in a 50Hz video format for PAL and a
59.94Hz video format for NTSC.
Aspect Ratio Conversion
Converting between standard-definition and
high-definition video formats often requires converting
between 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. The switcher support
Full, Zoom, Letterbox, and Pillarbox conversions.
In 480i and 576i video formats you can use either a 4:3
or 16:9 aspect ratio.

Video Input Setup
Video sources come into the switcher through the input
BNCs. Depending on how you want to use these video
sources, or where they come from, you may want the
switcher to pair them together, or associate an external
device with them. Pairing two video sources together is
usually used for an auto select key where an external
device, such as a character generator, outputs both a key
video and key alpha. Associating a video source with an
external device allows special control over that device
to become active when you select the source on a bus.
Auto Key Setup
An auto key allows you to associate a key alpha with a
key video source in the switcher. When the video source
is selected as a keyer, the key alpha is automatically used.
To Set Up an Auto Key Association
As well as input sources, internally generated sources,
such as media-stores and color backgrounds, can be set
up as an auto key.
4. Use the Mode knob to select whether the alpha is
shaped Shaped, or unshaped (Linear).
•
•
Linear — the alpha cuts a hole based on the
gradient values of the alpha (gray)
Shaped — the alpha cuts a hole based on the
monochrome value of the alpha (black or white)
Source Names
Each video source in the switcher can be given a unique
name. These names can be customized for how they
appear on the mnemonics by adjusting the size or the
font and the background color.
Note: If a TSL ID is assigned to a source, the switcher overwrites
the source name on the MultiViewer and mnemonics with the
TSL name. If there is no TSL name, or it has not been received
yet, the source name is blank. For the labels on the MultiViewer,
a combination of the TSL name and switcher source name are
used. The new TSL name is passed from the switcher to any
downstream TSL devices.
To Set Up a Source Name
Source names are restricted to eight characters in length.
1. Press MENU > Config > Input.
1. Press MENU > Config > Input > Mnemnc.
2. Use the Mnemnc knob to select the key video

Ancillary Data
Ancillary data is information such as closed captioning
or embedded audio that is included in the non-active
video portions of the video signal. These portions include
the Horizontal Ancillary Data Space (HANC) and
Vertical Ancillary Data Space (VANC).
The switcher can be configured to strip or pass this data
from the video output. The amount of data, and how it
is stripped, depends on the video format of the video
signal.
Note: Frame Converters and Synchronizers strip embedded
audio data from the video signal.
The following restrictions apply to ancillary data being
included in the output:
•
•
•
•
•
•
All ME program buses pass ancillary data.
MultiViewer outputs do not include any ancillary
data.
MiniME™ and MultiScreen outputs do not include
any ancillary data unless an ME with ancillary data
is re-entered onto the background bus.
ME Preview does not include ancillary data unless
the background is not selected as part of the next
transition.
A MiniME™ or MultiScreen can include ancillary
data if an ME is re-entered onto the background.
Any format conversion on the input video signal.

External Layer Mode
The clean feed for an ME is used to create a composite
alpha from the keyers on that ME that is then available
as a single alpha source. This allows you to output both
the video and alpha from an ME to an external switcher.
The key video comes from the output of the ME and the
key alpha comes from the clean feed of the ME.

The alphas that are included in the layer mode output are
set with the keyer buttons in the next transition area.
Toggle a keyer button on to include the alpha from that
keyer in the layer mode output.
When layer mode is turned on for an ME, you are
restricted to cut, dissolve, and wipe transitions.

MultiScreen / MiniME™
The MultiScreen allows you to output multiple video
signals that can be combined into a single scene. The
switcher treats the multiple outputs as a single
background and translates the keys across the multiple
backgrounds.
Keep the following in mind when setting up a
MultiScreen environment.
•
•
•
The MultiScreen uses MiniME™ resources to provide
the outputs. This allows you to have up to two DVE
keys per screen of the MultiScreen. As a key crosses
from one screen to the next, a key from either of the
MiniME™ outputs is being used to provide the two
halves of the key.
MultiScreen does not support chroma keys.
The MultiScreen can either take separate parts of a
pre-tiled source, or scale a single source to the size
of the MultiScreen output. When you use a pre-tiled
Carbonite Black Setup Manual (v12.1) — Video Outputs • 27
source, you must assign sources to each MiniME™
that is used in the MultiScreen. This substitution table
allows you to select a single source on the
MultiScreen program bus and the switcher
automatically assigns the required source to each
MiniME™.
MiniME™ Assignment
Each MiniME™ output is pre-assigned to a screen on the
MultiScreen layout. MiniME™ 1 and 2 are assigned to
MultiScreen 1 and MiniME™ 3 and 4 are assigned to
MultiScreen 2. If you select a layout that uses more than
two screens, the MiniME™ resources that were assigned
to MultiScreen 2 are assigned to MultiScreen 1.

sources. This reduces the number of available
DVE resources to the switcher when a
MultiScreen is turned on.
Dynmic — DVE resources are dynamically
allocated to the MultiScreen for scaling of
background sources if there is no substitution
table.
Note: If there are no DVE resources to scale the
background source across the entire MultiScreen, the
switcher needs a substitution table to map separate inputs

Color Correction (Carbonite
Black+ Only)
Color correction in the switcher is performed by either
Processing Amplifiers (Proc Amps) in the HSL
(Y-Cr-Cb) color space or by RGB Color Correctors in
the RGB color space. Both Proc Amps and RGB Color
Correctors allow you to apply color correction to video
on input to the switcher, before the crosspoint, and on
the output from the switcher. Correction applied to the
input video is then available to all MEs. Output based
correction is only available on output BNCs 11 to 22.
Color correction is additive, allowing you to apply any
combination of Proc Amp and RGB Color Corrector
based adjustment to a video signal. If multiple color
corrections are applied, the correction is applied first,
and the bus-based correction is applied after that.

Live Edit Decision Lists
Edit Decision Lists are files used by non-linear editing
(NLE) suites to aid in post-production. Your switcher
can capture EDL data in a file that you load into your
NLE suite.
LiveEDL Setup
You can configure your switcher to trigger multiple GPI
outputs at the start, end, or both, of an EDL data capture
to trigger video servers that are recording the feeds
coming into the switcher. The EDL data from the
switcher can then be paired with the feeds from the video
servers, using the timecode data, in the NLE suite to edit
or re-cut the show.
You can also set a pre-delay for each GPI output. EDL
data capture does not begin until the highest pre-delay
has passed. This is useful when the switcher needs to
wait for external equipment to become ready. The
example below shows the effects of various triggering
and pre-delay settings.
To Set the LiveEDL Behavior
1. Press MENU > System > NEXT > NEXT > NEXT
> LivEDL Config.
2. Use the GPO knob to select the GPI output that is
connected to your video server.
The GPI must be configured as a GPI output before
it can be selected.
3. Use the Triggr knob to select when the GPI output
is triggered.
•
•
•
•
Off — GPI is not triggered
Start — GPI output is triggered at the beginning
of the EDL capture
Stop — GPI output is triggered at the end of the
EDL capture
Both — GPI output is triggered at the beginning
and end of the EDL capture
If Start or Both is selected, you must set the
pre-delay for the GPI.
4. Use the PreDly knob to select the pre-delay interval
(in frames) that the switcher waits after the GPI
output is triggered before starting to capture EDL
data.
Timecode Setup
The switcher uses timecode data to mark the EDL file
so that it can be used in the non-linear editing suite along
with the feeds from the video servers. The timecode data
42 • Live Edit Decision Lists — Carbonite Black Setup Manual (v12.1)
can be either from an external timecode generator, or
internally generated. An offset can be applied to both
timecode sources.
For an external timecode, an LTC generator must be
connected to the LTC port on the back of the frame.
To Confirm External LTC Signal
If you have an external linear timecode generator
connected the LTC port on the back of the frame, you
can confirm that the switcher is receiving timecode data
from the switcher.
1. Press MENU > Status > NEXT.
2. Confirm that the timecode information shown on
the display matches the timecode from the timecode
generator.
If required, an offset can be applied to the incoming
timecode data.
To Set the LTC Timecode Source
If you are using an external timecode generator, an offset,
or delay, is applied to the incoming timecode signal
before it is stored in the LiveEDL data file. If you are
using an internal timecode, the offset is the starting time
that the switcher uses for the timecode that is stored in
the LiveEDL file.
Note: If a valid timecode signal is detected on the LTC port on
the frame, the external timecode will be used even if an internal
timecode is set.
1. Press MENU > System > NEXT > NEXT > NEXT
> LivEDL Config > NEXT.
2. Use the Offset knob to select the source of the
timecode data you want to use.

follows:
a) Use the LTCOff knob to select the offset, in
frames, that you want to delay the incoming
timecode signal by.
4. Set the starting time for an Internal timecode as
follows:
a) Use the Field knob to select the hours, minutes,
or seconds that you want to adjust.
The timecode is shown in the [HH:MM:SS]>
format.
b) Use the Value knob to set the starting time in
the selected field.
LiveEDL Data Capture
Capturing EDL data is manually started and stopped from
the switcher. When you select to start capturing EDL
data, and GPI outputs set to trigger on start are triggered.
If a pre-delay has been set for the GPIs, the switcher does
not start capturing EDL data until the pre-delay time has
finished.
When you stop capturing EDL data, you have the option
to delete the data, or save it to a USB drive. You can also
connect to the switcher via FTP and download the files
directly to your editing suite. Use the username
liveedl and password password to create the FTP
connection to the switcher.
Keep the following in mind when reviewing the EDL
data from the switcher:
•
•
When a MediaWipe is selected as the transition type,
the switcher records the transition duration as the cut
point frame multiplied by two (2). This is to ensure
that the cut point is recorded accurately.
If you used more than one ME, or Aux bus, in your
shot, a separate EDL file is saved for each ME and
Aux bus. The ME re-entry is shown as being selected
on the first ME, and the source selections on the
second ME are saved to the separate LiveEDL file.
Aux bus information is only stored to a LiveEDL file
when the Aux bus is not in fixed mode.
To Start Capturing EDL Data
The EDL data can be stored to one of 1000 LiveEDL
files stored on the switcher. A separate file is created for
each ME when the additional MEs are used.
1. Press MENU > User > LivEDL.
2. Use the Start knob to select the LiveEDL file on

MultiPanel
Each frame can be controlled by to up to three (3) control
panels at the same time. These panels can be of different
sizes and can be assigned different ME resources and
have independent personality settings. Panel personality
settings are a subset of the full personality settings of the
switcher.
A single control panel can be connected to the frame
using a serial connection and up to two panels over
ethernet. The ethernet connection can be from a Carbonite
Black control panel, or a Carbonite panel with a
CarboNET.
Keep the following in mind when working with
MultiPanel:

The assignment of the panel ID is done from the
Carbonite Black control panel or the CarboNET,
except if the panel is connected using the serial
connection.
Control panel specific personality settings are stored
on the frame for the panel ID and are not tied to the
control panel.
DashBoard automatically follows the master panel
but will ignore permissions set for the master panel.
If you change switcher modes, the MultiPanel
permissions may have to be set again.
An undo of a memory recall ignores panel
permissions and will undo the last memory recalled
from any panel.
Bus maps are specific to each control panel. Creating
or updating a bus map for one control panel does not
change the bus map on another control panel.
Custom controls ignore control panel permissions
and will run events on an ME, MiniME™, or
MultiScreen that the control panel does not have
permission for.
To Set Up MultiPanel Permissions
1. Press MENU > Config > NEXT > NEXT >

Glossary
interlaced scanning. One scan of a TV screen is called a
field; two fields are required to make a complete picture
(which is a frame).
Interlaced
An Interlaced video format starts at the top of the screen
and draws all the odd number scan lines and then all the
even number scan lines in sequence. This results in half
the image being drawn in one pass and the other half of
the image being drawn in the second. These two passes
are called Fields, where the first pass is called Field 1
and the second pass is called Field 2. When both Field
1 and Field 2 have been drawn, resulting in a complete
image, you have a single Frame.
Progressive
A Progressive scan video format draws each scan line in
sequence, starting from the top of the screen and working
to the bottom. Unlike Interlaced, with Progressive scan
the entire image is drawn at one time, in a single pass.
This means that there are no fields in a Progressive scan
image.
Auto Key
A pairing of two video signals, a key video and a key
alpha, to create a key. In the switcher, you associate the
fill and alpha so that the switcher knows which alpha to
use when the video is selected.
Auto Transition
An automatic transition in which the manual movement
of the fader handle is simulated electronically. The
transition starts when the AUTO TRANS button is
pressed and takes place over a pre-selected time period,
measured in frames.
Chroma Key
Chroma Key is a key in which the hole is cut based on
a color value, or hue, rather than a luminance value or
alpha signal. The color is removed and replaced with
background video from another source.
Cut
An instantaneous switch from one video signal to another.
Dissolve
A transition from one video signal to another in which
one signal is faded down, while the other is
simultaneously faded up. The terms mix or cross-fade
are often used interchangeably with dissolve.
Field
One half of a complete picture (or frame) interval
containing all of the odd, or all of the even, lines in
52 • Glossary — Carbonite Black Setup Manual (v12.1)
Force, Mask
An effect that forces the masked region to the foreground
but is not bound by the key. For example, if you have a
preset pattern key and apply a mask to it. The masked
area is bound by the edges of the key pattern. When force
is turned on, the masked area is filled with the video from
the key (nothing appears masked) but you can move the
mask outside of the key pattern and the key video is still
filling the masked region.
Frame
One complete picture consisting of two fields of
interlaced scanning lines.
File Transfer Protocol
A network protocol that is used to transfer files from one
host computer to another over a TCP-based network.
Gain
Gain represents the range of signal values present in a
video signal from a lowest to a highest point (from black
to white for example). Increasing gain expands this range,
while decreasing gain compresses this range. Clipping
occurs if applied gain changes cause output signal values
to fall outside the allowable range. Generally, increasing
the gain for a specific color component causes the video
signal colors to become increasingly saturated with that
color. Similarly, decreasing the gain for a specific color
component progressively removes that color component
from the output video signal.
Gamma
Gamma corrections introduce non-linear corrections to
a video signal. A gamma correction can be described as
taking a point on the output versus input video signal
line and pulling it perpendicularly away from the line.
The result is a Bezier curve between the start, the new
point, and the end point. Generally, increasing the gamma
value adds more of the component to the video signal in
the location of the gamma offset point. Decreasing the
gamma value reduces the amount of the component in
the video signal in the location of the gamma offset point.
Moving the gamma offset point allows you to select
which part of the input video signal receives the gamma
correction. For example, if you increase the red gamma
correction to the part of the video signal that has no red
component you will add red to those areas while having
little effect on areas that already contain a significant
amount of red. This allows you to add a red tint to the
image while minimizing the amount of red-clipping that
occurs.
General Purpose Interface
A simple high/low signal that is used to trigger an action
either on an external device or on the switcher. A GPI
can be an input or an output to the switcher.
High Definition
A high definition (720p, 1080i, or 1080p/3G) video
signal.
Key Video
A video input which is timed to fill the hole provided by
the key source video. An example of key video is the
video output of a character generator.
Linear Key
Linear keys make it possible to fully specify the
transparency of a key from opaque, through transparent,
to fully off. The transparency is specified by the key
alpha that is associated with the key video. A keyer
capable of a linear key converts the key signal voltage
directly to the transparency effect on the screen.
Hue
The characteristic of a color signal that determines
whether the color is red, yellow, green, blue, purple, etc.
(the three characteristics of a TV color signal are
chrominance, luminance, and hue). White, black, and
gray are not considered hues.
Mnemonics
A green, orange, or yellow display used to show the
names of a source above or below the source button or
used as a custom command or pattern button.
Offsets
Hue Rotation
Hue rotate affects the color of the entire video signal by
rotating the input video hues. This produces an output
video signal with colors that are shifted from their
original hues. By rotating colors around the wheel, hue
values will shift. For example, a clockwise rotation where
yellows become orange, reds become magenta, blues
become green. The more rotation applied, the further
around the wheel colors are shifted.
Key
An effect produced by cutting a hole in the background
video, then filling the hole with video or matte from
another source. Key source video cuts the hole, key fill
video fills the hole. The video signal used for cut and fill
can come from the same, or separate, sources.
Key Alpha
The video signal which cuts a hole in the background
video to make a key effect possible. Also called Key
Video or Source. In practice, this signal controls when
a video mixer circuit will switch from background to key
fill video.
Key Invert
An effect that reverses the polarity of the key source so
that the holes in the background are cut by dark areas of
the key source instead of bright areas.
Key Mask
A keying technique in which a pattern is combined with
the key source to block out unwanted portions of the key
source.
Offsets shift the video signal by a set amount. Depending
on the offset applied, different parts or all of the video
signal may be affected. Clipping occurs if applied offsets
cause output signal values to fall outside the allowable
range.
Pre-Delay
A pre-delay is a delay that is inserted into a transition
between the triggering of a GPI output and performing
the transition. The length of the pre-delay is usually the
length of time your video server requires to start playing
a clip or your character generator required to load a page.
RossTalk
An ethernet based protocol that allows the control over
Ross devices using plain english commands.
Standard-Definition
A standard definition (480i or 576i) video signal.
Self Key
A key effect in which the same video signal serves as
both the key signal and key fill.
Shaped Key
An additive key where the Key Alpha cuts a hole based
on the monochrome value of the alpha. Shades of gray
are translated into either white or black, giving the key
a hard edge. Shaped Key alphas are sometimes used with
Character Generators to cut very precise holes for the
fill.
Carbonite Black Setup Manual (v12.1) — Glossary • 53
Split Key
A Split key allows you to assign a different alpha source
for a key than the fill/alpha associations that are set up
during configuration or to use a separate alpha source
for a Self key.
Tally
An indicator which illuminates when the associated
button, or control, is selected or is on-air.
Unshaped Key
A multiplicative key where the Key Alpha cuts a hole
based on the gradient values of the alpha. Shades of gray
are translated into transparency levels, giving the key a
soft edge. Unshaped Key alphas can also be considered
true linear alphas. Key alphas are set to unshaped by
default.
