There are three keying modes available: Linear, Luma, and Chroma.
After the keying mode is chosen, select Self if only one source is enabled for the keyer, which is Key
source and select Split if two sources are enabled for the keyer, which are Key and Fill sources. You may
also select P-in-P or P-in-P Lite to apply the keying effect to the P-in-P window.

P-in-P image after the corresponding chroma keyer parameters are adjusted in the Chroma option.
Priority sets the key image to either the top layer or bottom layer and is only available if Key 1 or Key 2
is selected.
The Keyer Control also allows the user to adjust lift, gain and opacity of the key image.
Lift adjusts the dark/black areas of the key image.

Luma: This parameter adjusts the luma value of the chroma key
Key Range (KRange): Key Range sets the range of hues or colors (0 – 360 degrees) that closely match the
background color to be keyed. The user can start with a value of 120 degrees and this value can be finetuned up or down depending on the setup of the green or blue screen studio.
Key Foreground (K Fgnd): Key Foreground adjusts the performance of the chroma key in dark or black
areas. Increase the value if the dark areas are becoming too transparent.
Key Background (K Bgnd): Key Background adjusts the performance of the chroma key in light or white
areas. Increase the value if the light areas are becoming too transparent.
Hi-Light: Hi-light boosts the foreground key in high luminance area.
Lo-Light: Lo-light boosts the foreground key in low luminance area.
Bg-Supp: Background Suppress removes the Luma (Brightness) of the background from the final image.
Bg-Supp turns ON/OFF background suppression.
Mask

Outputs
In general, there are three output ports (SDI 1, SDI 2 and HDMI) available, which can be configured to
output one of the following:
• Input 6
• Input 5
• Input 4
• Input 3
• Input 2
• Input 1
• CLN PVW (Clean PVW)
• CLN PGM (Clean PGM)
• PG + DSK
• PVW
• PGM
• MultiV (Multi view)
In addition to selecting your output source, you are also allowed to set two different resolutions to the
HDMI output port. The two available resolutions are 1080i and 1080p.
Please note that when HDMI OUT is set to 1080i, image will be enlarged on the DELL 24” monitor (Wide
Mode = 1:1), exceeding the viewable screen area (overscan). In 1080p and 720p modes, image overscan
and shifts are seen on BENQ 37”/SONY 42” TV.
Audio
The Audio sub-option for the SDI and HDMI outputs allows the user to individually turn ON/OFF the
embedded audio component at the SDI1-out, SDI2-out and HDMI-out.
Mode (On/Off): The SE-1200MU can only accept external audio using the analogue XLR inputs on the
rear panel. Ideally a master audio mixer would be used alongside the SE-1200MU. A Datavideo AM-100
or AD-200 could be considered. By changing the Audio sub option from ON to OFF will mute the
incoming XLR audio from the external master audio mixer.
23
Level (EBU/SMPTE/AUTO): There are two different audio standards available for selection. The user can
either select the EBU or SMPTE standard. By selecting AUTO allows the device to automatically detect
the audio standard.
GPI Out
This allows the user to perform GPI configuration. After turning on the GPI, select the GPI mode, which
is either level or pulse. The pulse width can also be configured in the sub-option Width (1-9). GPI out can
then be assigned to one of Inputs 1-6 and the delay can be set to between 1 and 99. This feature could
be used to trigger playback from an external playback device such as Datavideo’s NVP-20 or HRS-30 unit.
Multiviewer
AutoNum: The Multiview windows can be automatically numbered, and this sub-option turns ON/OFF
automatic numbering.
Label Inf: This sub-option turns ON/OFF Label information. Input label is followed by information which
describes the input as still, live or frozen image.
Trns Lab: This sub-option turns ON/OFF Label Transparency. Once enabled, the background of the label
is then turned from a solid colour to transparent.

This section describes problems that you may encounter while using the RMC-260. If you have
questions, please refer to related sections and follow all the suggested solutions. If problem still exists,
please contact your distributor or the service center.
1. My PC Control Panel UI cannot work with the RMC-260.
The RMC-260 has to work with the PC Control Panel UI of the version SE-1200MU V1.2.0.7 or above.
2. While SE-1200MU is ON, loss of connection between SE-1200MU and RMC-260 is experienced after
hot plugging RS-232 connection repeatedly.
Loss of connection does not usually occur when hot plugging RS-232 connection repeatedly,
however, after 5 to 6 times, connection might still be lost; wait for approximately 72 seconds, and
the connection will be re-established.
3. The DSK is not transitioned when I move the T-bar.
DSK transition can only be executed using the CUT and AUTO buttons; T-BAR cannot be used for DSK
transition.
