SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
The 300 Clip Instant Access System consists of the ST300-SSM VTR Controller, STS420
Shotbox, and Shotlist Software.
The Video Server must support Odetics Broadcast Protocol.
SHOTLIST provides fast access to existing video clips stored on Grass Valley Group PROFILE,
Leitch VR or other DDR, VDR, Video Servers supporting Odetics Broadcast Protocol.
The SHOTLIST can contain up to 300 CLIP IDs, stored in non-volatile memory in the ST300.
Remotely view the CLIP IDs that exist in the Video Server under control. Desired clips can be
MARKED into the SHOTLIST at a single location or at multiple locations.
Any clip in the SHOTLIST can be quickly loaded by simply entering the associated 3-digit
number of its location, then pressing [LOAD]. Press [PLAY] to play the clip. Press [RECUE] to
recue to the beginning of the clip or to the “recalled” time if defined.
DEFINITIONS
4
‰
Throughout this document VTR, DDR, VDR & Video Server will be referred to collectively
as “Video Server.”
‰
The ST300-S/SM as the ST300.
‰
The ST420 SHOTBOX is referred to as “SHOTBOX.”
“SHOTKEY” refers to the 1-30 switches on the SHOTBOX.
‰
Words surrounded by brackets, for example, [ENTER], are keys on the ST300 or the

SYSTEM INSTALLATION
a.
b.
SHOTBOX
1)
Plug one end of a standard 9-pin, RS422 serial cable, into the
OUTPUT connector on the rear of the SHOTBOX. Plug the other end
of the cable into the AUX connector on the rear of the ST300.
2)
Connect the Ault Model #SW300 POWER SUPPLY into the POWER
connector on the rear of the SHOTBOX. Plug the Power Supply into an outlet,
90 VAC – 240 VAC.
ST300-S/SM, VTR/DDR CONTROLLER
1)

connector on the rear of the ST300. Plug the other end of the cable into the
REMOTE connector on the Video Server.
2)
Connect the supplied POWER SUPPLY, APX#4108, into the POWER
connector on the rear of the ST300. Plug the Power Supply into an outlet, 90
VAC – 240 VAC.

27. DNF CONTROLS LIMITED WARRANTY
DNF Controls warrants its product to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one
(1) year from the date of sale to the original purchaser from DNF Controls.
In order to enforce the rights under this warranty, the customer must first contact DNF’s Customer Support
Department to afford the opportunity of identifying and fixing the problem without sending the unit in for
repair. If DNF’s Customer Support Department cannot fix the problem, the customer will be issued a
Returned Merchandise Authorization number (RMA). The customer will then ship the defective product
prepaid to DNF Controls with the RMA number clearly indicated on the customer’s shipping document.
The merchandise is to be shipped to:
DNF Controls
12843 Foothill Blvd., Suite D
Sylmar, CA 91342
USA
Failure to obtain a proper RMA number prior to returning the product may result in the return not being
accepted, or in a charge for the required repair.
DNF Controls, at its option, will repair or replace the defective unit. DNF Controls will return the unit
prepaid to the customer. The method of shipment is at the discretion of DNF Controls, principally UPS
Ground for shipments within the United States of America. Shipments to international customers will be
sent via air. Should a customer require the product to be returned in a more expeditious manner, the return
shipment will be billed to their freight account.
This warranty will be considered null and void if accident, misuse, abuse, improper line voltage, fire,
water, lightning or other acts of God damaged the product. All repair parts are to be supplied by DNF
Controls, either directly or through its authorized dealer network. Similarly, any repair work not
performed by either DNF Controls or its authorized dealer may void the warranty.
After the warranty period has expired, DNF Controls offers repair services at prices listed in the DNF
Controls Price List. DNF Controls reserves the right to refuse repair of any unit outside the warranty
period that is deemed non-repairable.
DNF Controls shall not be liable for direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or other types of damage
resulting from the use of the product.
