How User Settings Make Switching Easy for Live Programs On a Studio or Stage
This explanation will be helpful to your production set-up if
you are switching live on a stage, in a studio or in a
controlled environment. Usually shots and set-ups are
established and repeated, (almost cycled through) as the
program moves forward and the characters tell their story.
Examples:
Cooking show
News & Interview Program
Religious Broadcast
A cooking show will always have repetitive shots; something like these:
1. A medium shot of the food preparation area.
2. A close ups of the cooks hands.
3. A wider shot of the prep area/cooking area.
4. A close-up of the cooking area.
5. A close-up of the ovens.
6. CG or camera card to show ingredients, etc.
7. A wide shot of the audience.
8. Roving audience camera(s).
In a News & Interview Program (like the Morning or Evening News), the
show will most likely have a set up where one or two people are at a desk
and 2 reporters or interviews are coming in remotely.The shots will consist
of something like this:
1. Front closeup of the main talent.
2. Side closeup of the main talent.
3. Side shot of the talent with the two interviewees as PiP’s.
(Sometimes with a way to indicate which is speaking-maybe a
colored border. Like a tally light for the PIP’s.)
4. Side shot of the talent with the one of the PiP interviewes replaced
with a different source – such as a pre-recorded clip or a graphic.
5. Full frame of remote 1.
6. Full frame of remote 2, (and so on).
In a House of Worship Setting, shots may consist of:
1. A close-up of the preacher.
2. A wide shot of the preacher and the congregation.
3. A medium shot to show the Choir or Singers
4. CG to show passages that the Preacher is speaking from.
5. A Powerpoint presentation to show the lyrics of songs.
City Council Meeting
In Council Meeting shots may consist of:
1. A close-ups of the council members
2. A wide shot of the attendees and the council members
3. A Powerpoint presentation
4. Roving camera(s) that view the whole auditorium or City Council
Meeting Room.
THE USER SHOT BOX
Regardless of the production set-up, you can
preset and recall eight different switcher
configurations by storing them in the User
Shot Box.
You can save more user set-ups by
entering the USER Menu in the Menus
Button Group, for a total of 999 User
Set-ups!
This is a small Q/A about the applicability of this approach.
Q: How do I monitor the ‘next’ set-up without
a Preview bus?
A: Since this is a shot that you will repeat, It is best to monitor your source.
You should also check if the camera is focused for each input source. To
monitor specific input sources, you can assign them to the AUX outputs.
These are located in the AUX Delegates button group (AUX 1-4). This way
you can use a larger monitor to check camera focus, and the on-screen
talents makeup, and so on.
This is also helpful if the sources will be used for PiP’s, because even
though they will appear smaller in the Main Program output, they will look
even better if they are in focus.
Q: As I change from “User” to “User” do the
AUX bus assignments change as well?
A: Yes, the AUX settings are also stored per User Setting.
Q: What are the transitions available from
one USER or SHOT to another? Or, how
should I think about the transitions?
A: Technically, you can only cut from User to User. However, you can get
creative about how you use your other inputs in conjunction with your User
Memory. For example, you can CUT to User 1, MIX to Input 2, bring up a
PIP in the PRESET bus and then Mix it into the PGM out, then cut to user 2.
You can also use the Flex Button in the PRESET or PGM Bus to create wipe
and DVE transitions, but note however, that you would have to plan the
User settings carefully for these transitions because each User Memory also
saves the settings for the whole control panel.

This mode is for High Definition
inputs. The image will be 16:9
(rectangular).
Note that the HD input on the SE3000 accepts only 1080i, not
1080p.
This mode is for SD inputs
that you do not want or
need to be scaled to fit
16:9. The image will be
4:3 (square).
The input will appear to have
the aspect ratio of HD (16:9),
but it is only scaled to look
that way. This is best for
occasions when you are
mixing SD and HD sources.
Note that some parts of the
image will be cropped to
scale the image.
This mode creates an output
that will be 16:9 but the SD
image will not be scaled.
Instead, the black bars will be
added to fit the “Full Screen”
space.
NOTE: You also have the option to change the
name of the input. After you select an input from the
main INPUT Menu, simply press “Name”.

How do you connect Audio to the SE-3000?
The SE-3000 has two stereo pairs, or 4 XLR audio inputs for balanced audio.
The inputs will accept the (XLR) audio output of an audio mixer or a camera and embed the audio into the program out
video. It is designed with two stereo pairs so you can have STAGE FRONT (L&R) and STAGE REAR (L&R) on playback.
Stereo Pair
WHAT TO DO IN WORDS
1 .Connecting direct from your camera.
Look for the XLR Audio outs on your camera. Connect to
one of the stereo pairs on the SE-3000 (CH1 and CH2
or CH3 and CH4).
WHAT TO DO IN PICTURES
You must use an
external monitor to
check the audio levels
from the SE-3000. The
SE-3000 has no
internal audio
monitoring system at
the moment.
Note: If it is anything other than an XLR, you will need
an adapter to covert the connection type. The SE-3000
only has balanced XLR connectors for audio inputs.
2. If you have a Mixing Board:
Connect your audio channels out from the mixer into one
of the XLR stereo input pairs.

How to Use the Transition Controls on the SE-3000
WHAT TO DO IN WORDS
The Transition Controls Button
Group selects how your transitions
will appear, enables transitions on
or off, and controls how extra
effects can be applied to the
transitions selected. The best way
to get to know these buttons is to
prepare a basic set-up to practice
each control.
WHAT TO DO IN PICTURES
A.
BASIC TRANSITION SET-UP:
1. Select BGND in the Transition
Controls Button group. (Fig A)
2. Pick an input from your PGM
(Program) Bus. It will appear in the
PROGRAM Screen of your
Multiview preview. We have
selected Input1 here. (Fig B).

(or Key 2) enabled.
Chromakey source
transition with Key 1 (or
Key 2) enabled.
The source for this WIPE
transition is inside the
Chromakey source area.
This is incorrect.
The source for this WIPE
transition is now over the
Chromakey source area.
This is correct.
PRIORITY:
Switches the priority of Key 1 over
Key 2. By default, the Chromakey
Source you saved in Key 1 is the
Priority for transitions.
NORM/REV (This only works with Wipes
and DVE Transitions): If this button is
selected, you can complete a transition in
its default state, and then in reverse of its
default state using the T-Bar.
Transition in its “Normal”
direction going down.
REV: (only for Wipe and DVE Transition):
If enabled, the transition will be completed
in reverse of its default state. For example,
if a transition usually comes in on the left, it
will now come in on the right.
When you use the T-Bar or
AUTO Trans, the transition
will move in the “Reversed”
direction.
In the example to the
left, the transition is
normal when the image
moves DOWN and
into the frame. When
REV is enabled, it will
now always move UP
and out of the frame.
TRANS PVW – Used to preview
transition effects.
If enabled, you can preview the transition
before it goes live.
1. Select what type of transition you
want to use from the transitions
button group.
2. Press the TRANS PVW Button to
enable the preview in the Preview
Screen of the Multiview Preview.
3. You can use the T-Bar or the AUTO
TRANS Button to complete the
transition preview.
You will see the transition effect
appear in the PREVIEW Screen of
the Multiview Preview.
Note: If you like how your transition looks in the preview, make sure you turn
the TRANS PVW button is off before going live. Otherwise you will not see the
transition in the Main Program out.
In this image, when TRANS
PVW is enabled, the
transition from Input 5 to Input
6 is shown in the Preview
Screen of the Multiview

How to Use Flex Source
Flex Source on the SE-3000 is a unique and powerful feature that can maximize the production value of any set up whether
you have 4 or 16 video sources. You can set up several shot configurations and save them in the user shot box to recall them
later at the push of a button. This can save you a lot of time and headache from trying to remember a complicated set-up that
you may need to use frequently.
Flex Source also works with several other effects in the SE-3000 such as the built in keyer, all without affecting accessibility to
your input and effects sources in the PROGRAM or PRESET BUS. In short, it’s like having 2 feature rich switchers to seamlessly
mix your sources at the same time.
This sheet will give you brief overview of how to use Flex Source, but you will find that once you
understand the basic controls, you can accomplish many professional looking effects and transitions with
a minimal learning curve. The overview is divided into Sections A-E, each covering the basic controls of

How to Set Up a Chromakey
The SE-3000 can use two Chromakey set ups at the same time. You can store each set up in either Key 1 or Key 2 of the
Aux Bus Delegates. Please see the instructions “How to Use Two Chromakey Set ups” for more information.
These instructions will explain how to create a basic set up; keying an object in the foreground, as well as how to key out
a background.
WHAT TO DO IN WORDS
1. Under the Aux Buses select Key 1.
WHAT TO DO IN PICTURES
2. For best results, the object that you want
to key should be a solid color. The best
results will be with chromakey green or
blue because they contain less of the
other colors (not green or not blue). But
the SE-3000 will allow you to select any
color that you are working with.
Note: Lighting is very important in
making a good key. The more light you
have on the subject, the easier it will be
for camera electronics to produce it and
the switcher electronics to recognize it.
Even light is better that a spot light.
See more about lighting in the
section below labeled “Lighting.”
3. Under Keyer Controls, make sure that
ON, LIN, CHROMA, and SELF
buttons are selected.
4. Select the input source with the object in
the AUX BUS.
(Here ON is not selected.

A. An example of aiming for even lighting
for a Chromakey Background.
Balance the light levels
You will get better results if the light on the background and the light
on the subject are of similar brightness levels. Try not to create spot
light on your subject. If you cannot avoid it, you can use the “Mask”
feature that can limit the key area of your Chroma.

How to Use CG as a DSK
There are several options to create character generation on the SE-3000.
You can either use a downstream keyer source to the SE-3000 or you can use the SE-3000’s internal keyer.
Creating Character Generation with the CG-350 Kit as a Downstream Keyer ( DSK)
Datavideo’s CG-350 Character Generation Software Kit can be used as a downstream key source to overlay animated
graphics and text.
How it works:
The Blackmagic DECKLINK HD Extreme 3D video card (included with the CG-350 kit) has a built in keyer that can place an
image from the CG-350 software over the video output from the SE-3000. When you use the keyer from this card, it is
called Downstream Keying. This means that you can still use all of the SE-3000’s menu functions to adjust your video
sources while using an external keyer.
You will need a computer to use the CG-350 software kit with the SE-3000.
What you will need (along with the SE-3000):
CG-350 Kit ( includes Blackmagic DECKLINK HD Extreme 3D card)
(2) BNC cables
PC Computer w/monitor ( MAC OS does not support the CG-350 Kit)
NOTE: CG-350 software can be purchased alone and used with the AJA Kona LHi card or AJA Kona LHe card if using a
Dell Computer.
TERMS:
Graphic Slide (for Title Composer): Similar to a PowerPoint presentation slide, this slide has all the information about
the animation or effects that you have designed with your text or imported images. Each time you create a new animation
for a text or image element, you will create a new slide.
WHAT TO DO IN WORDS
1. Install an AJA or Blackmagic DECKLINK
video input/output card into your PC
Tower. The CG-350 is PC based, and
these video cards will not install with a
laptop.
2. Install the CG-350 software in your PC.

3. Install the AJA or Blackmagic DECKLINK
driver software into your PC.
The Blackmagic design CD will be with the card.
If you lose the CD, you can also download the
software here:
http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/software/
4. Connect the output from the SE-3000 to the input
of the video card using one of the BNC cables.
NOTE:
If you do not have a BNC
Connection on your monitor,
you can use the included
breakout cable to configure
your monitor. You will have
to change the output settings
of the Blackmagic Design
video card.
5. Using the other BNC cable, connect the output
from the video card to an input of the monitor or
preview device to see how your final output looks.
NOTE: the input and output slots on the video
card can be identified in the DECKLINK manual,
they are not labeled on the actual card.
6. Insert the CG-350 dongle into your computer to
unlock the software (Fig. A, B).
You will see 2 icons. One is Title Composer, one
is CG-350. ( Fig. C)
NOTE: Title Composer helps you create a graphic

created. This option will play all your graphic
slides in sequence.
The CG-350 Software Interface
The “Start Auto Sequence” button is located
on the right hand side of the CG-350
interface, above the “Page Off” Button.
10. If you cannot see the text/graphic slide over the
video, please check that the BNC cables are
configured correctly. If this still does not work,
you will need to check the settings on your
computer.
Go into “My Computer” and open the Blackmagic
Control Panel. Make sure that the inputs and
outputs for the video card are set to accept and
output the correct video signal (HD-SDI).
In the above slide, lower third graphics have been overlaid on
to video of a cooking show. This is how a properly made
graphic or text slide should appear on your preview screen.
NOTE: After the initial set-up of your character generator station, you can leave your BNC cables connected. You do not
have to reconnect your BNC cables each time you are creating graphics, unless you breakdown the entire set-up.

How to Connect to a Projector
You can connect a projector using the main PGM out of the SE-3000, while still using the Multi 1 (HD-SDI or DVI-D) or
Multi 2 (HD-SDI) to monitor your input sources and transition effects.
1. Turn off the projector. Make sure your projector accepts HD-SDI. If it doesn’t, you can use a Datavideo DAC-8 (not
included) to convert HD-SDI to HDMI.
NOTE: Not all Projectors have HDMI or HD-SDI input, you will have to find a HD converter that will be appropriate
for your set-up.
2. Connect the PGM output from the SE3000 to the HD-SDI input on the
projector.
Do not connect to the PVW out; it is
not the final output of your transitions
and video effects.
If you are using the DAC-8
converter use an HDMI cable to
connect the DAC-8 to the projector.
3. Turn on the projector and wait for it to recognize the output from the SE-3000. After a few moments, you should be
able to see your PGM through the projector.
NOTE: Please read your projectors instructions first to make sure that all the settings are correct for accepting signal from
the switcher.
If you cannot see an image projected check the cables and also the input settings of the Projector.

How to Connect the SE-3000 to a Software-based Media Encoder or Media Capture
Device
You can connect a software-based Media Encoder (SBME) or Media Capture Device using the main PGM out of the SE3000, while still using the Multi 1 (HD-SDI or DVI-D) or Multi 2 (HD-SDI) to monitor your input sources and transition effects.
Please follow the instructions that came with your device to configure the set-up for your encoder and your computer.
NOTE: There are several different types of Media encoders and capture devices available. One that has HD-SDI or HD
component input will work best with the SE-3000. Otherwise you will need a converter box. If you are using a softwarebased Media Encoder, your computer will need to have a compatible video capture PCI card installed or an external
capture device as shown below.
You will need to configure the encoding or capture software before you connect the switcher. This is to make sure it is set
to accept the HD-SDI signal from the SE-3000. After you have done this, you can begin these steps.
1. Turn off your capture device and/or
computer. Make sure that your
capture device is properly connected
to your computer.
If you are using a SBME, you will
be connecting to the inputs of your
computers’ video card.
2. Connect the HD-SDI PGM output
from the SE-3000 to the input on the
capture device or video card.
CAPTURE DEVICE
Note: Capture Devices
usually come with
software as well.
CAPTURE CARD
Software Based Media
Encoder
Note: You will usually
need a capture card
installed in your
computer for this type
of encoder to run in
real time.
SE-3000:
Do not connect to the PVW
out.
3. Turn on your device and/or computer.
4. Start the software that came with your capture device, or your video editing software. Follow your software’s
instructions for capturing video.
5. You should now see the output from the switcher appear on your computer via the software that you are using to
control your capture device.
If you cannot see output from the switcher, please check the input settings on your software,
and the cables that you are using.
