In Flag Reset Turn the Entry In mode on the VTR off. When the Entry In mode is off, the VTR will rewind the preroll time when the Preroll command is issued.
In Recall Turn the Entry In mode on the VTR on. When the Entry In mode is on, the VTR will go to the in-entry point that has previously been set on the VTR, minus the preroll, when the Preroll command is issued. The in-entry point is set from the VTR, and not from the switcher.
Pause Have the VTR go into pause mode.
Play Play a video clip (with alpha if the option is set for the device). The switcher will confirm the status of the video server, and then send the play command.
Play Loop Off The currently looping clip stops playing the next time it reaches the end.
Play Loop On The currently cued and playing clip loops back to the beginning when it finishes playing.
Play no Stat Play a video clip (with alpha if the option is set for the device). The switcher does not confirm the status of the video server, but immediately sends the play command.
Preroll Have the VTR go to the predefined in-entry, minus a set preroll time, when In Recall is active. When In Recall is not active, the VTR will rewind the pre-roll time from the current point. The in-entry point and preroll time are set from the VTR, and not from the switcher.
Record The VTR/server goes into record mode. You must use the Stop event to stop the recording. It is a good practice to create a Stop custom control before creating the Record custom control so that you can stop the recording. Click Enter Clip Name and enter the name you want to use for the clip you are recording on the server.
Standby Off Take the VTR out of standby mode. When not in standby mode, the heads of the VTR are removed from the tape, showing noise or black on the video output. This command only works if the VTR is stopped.
Standby On Put the VTR in standby mode. In standby mode, the heads of the VTR are engaged, showing video on the video output. The VTR automatically goes into this mode when the Play, Rewind, Fast Forward, or Pause commands are issued.
Stop The VTR performs a stop and eject. This command stops the selected channel, and unloads the clip.
