MC-2020 Encoding Instructions

The MC-2020 master control system is designed to allow you to change all the parameters at your facility. The configuration tool is supplied with each system and provides an easy and intuitive method to configuring your new master control. Utah Scientific also provides you with encoding instructions and forms if you would like the factory to program your system before it ships. If you would like us to encode your system please follow the instructions below.


Locate the MC-2020 Forms provided; these will be filled in with your specific requirements.


STEP 1 SYSTEM SUMMARY DEFINITION

Fill in the “System Summary Pages”. This information includes the name and IP address information for all Master Control Panels, Master Control Signal Processing Channels and ESI-2020 Machine Control Chassis in your system.


It is highly recommended that you use the following format when naming your systems.

SD Signal Processors XXXX-SDnn

HD Signal Processors XXXX-HDnn

MCP Master Control Panels XXXX-MCPnn

ESI Machine Control Chassis XXXX-ESInn
Substitute your station call letters for the XXXX portion of the name. Substitute numbers starting from 01 and working up for the nn portion of the name. The number 01 is the starting number for each type of device in your system. Assuming your call letters are KUSI and you have a new system with 2 MCP panels, 3 SD processors 1 HD processor and 2 ESI machine control chassis the following names should be used:


Master Control Panels

KUSI-MCP01, KUSI-MCP02

Master Control SD Signal Processors

KUSI-SD01, KUSI-SD02, KUSI-SD03

Master Control HD Signal Processors

KUSI-HD01

Master Control ESI Machine Control Chassis

KUSI-ESI01, KUSI-ESI02

Fill in each section of the system summary as required. You can supply IP addresses if you have them. Otherwise the systems are shipped with factory defaults of 192.168.5.nnn.




STEP 2 BASIC SYSTEM CONFIGURATION

Locate the page sub-titled “MC2020 Basic Configuration”. The sub-titles are located in the lower left portion of each encoding form. You must complete a “MC2020 Basic Configuration” form for each SD or HD processing channel in your system. If you have more than 1 make extra copies as necessary.


System Name Fill in this field in using the “2020 Processor Name” field on the “MC2020 System Summary” form.




IP Address Fill in this field in using the “IP Address” field you entered on the “MC2020 System Summary” form.




UNET ID Fill in this field in using the “UNET ID” field you entered on the “MC2020 System Summary” form.




Logical to Physical Table Fill in the Video Level with the UNET Level where your video router is controlled. For instance, if you have a SD router on unet level 3 and an HD router on level 4. You would place a 4 in the video field if this is a HD channel or a 3 if this is a SD channel.

Fill in the Audio Level with the UNET level where your AES Audio level 1 router is controlled. Continue this procedure for all audio levels you will use with this Master control.



MC-2020 Output Names Fill in the Video and Audio outputs you will use for this Master Control Channel. You must define the Video Output for all three outputs (Program, Preset, Preview). The audio outputs are defined only if you are using a AES audio router in your system. If this is the case enter the output numbers you have selected in the appropriate fields.



Video Signal Format Select the format this channel will process. You can only select one of the possible options for a channel
Primary Audio Format Select the Audio formats you will use for Primary Router Sources. The 2020 supports mixed signal formats from the router so having more than 1 checked is valid. Check all that apply. The only restriction is that all audio for a single source must be of the same format. E.g. VTR 1 uses embedded Audio where VTR 2 uses Discreet AES. Then you would check both formats.

AES Audio Direct Connect If you checked AES in the preceeding step you must say yes here. Alternatively if you plan to connect an audio playback device to this 2020 chassis you must also select YES.

NOTE: You must have a AI-2020 input card if you plan to utilize AES audio inputs on this channel.
Repeat STEP 2 for each SD or HD channel in your system using new forms as required.

STEP 3 PRIMARY ROUTER SOURCE DEFINITION

Locate the pages sub-titled “MC2020 Primary Router Source Configuration”.


Enter the names and level input information for the router sources you wish to access using this Master Control. If you have multiple SD or HD channels and plan to use the same sources on all of them. You may use the data from this form for all channels sharing the same signal format. Otherwise you must fill out separate forms for each channel.


STEP 4 PRIMARY ROUTER SOURCE ATTRIBUTE DEFINITION

Locate the pages sub-titled “MC2020 Primary Router Source Attributes”.


This section is used to configure various attributes for sources defined in the previous step. You will notice a predefined entry called “DEFAULT”. This line allows an easy way to enter a basic set of attributes you will use for most or all of the primary router sources used with this channel.
The remaining lines can be used to alter attributes for specific sources that must operate different from the DEFAULT selection.
Here’s an example. A station uses embedded audio for most of it’s router sources, no on-air tallies, no machine control and no special keyer controls. The station has 2 VTR sources that require machine control. One of them requires an on-air tally and uses AES audio rather than embedded.
To configure the above example a total of 3 lines would be filled in. DEFAULT would have EMB and STEREO Items checked. Line 2 would have NAME, EMB, STEREO, PREROLL, MACHINE CONTROL Fields filled in. Line 3 would have NAME, AES, STEREO, ON-AIR, PREROLL, MACHINE CONTROL fields filled in.

Matrix Input Name Fill this in using the same name you entered in the “Primary Router Source Configuration

Aud Type Select the audio format this source will use

Audio Mode Select one of the predefine audio modes this source will use.

Tally Select the type of tally this device should have (none, PGM, PST).

Preroll Enter the preroll time the Master Control should use for this source.

Keyer Inhibit The MC2020 supports a keyer inhibit feature. This is based on the source currently selected on PST or PGM buses. If you enable this feature whenever this source is active on PST or PGM, the selected keyer(s) will be turned off regardless of the current panel control selection. This would typically be used on commercial sever machines where you would not have a logo active during the commercial playback. In this case you would enter the server name and select the keyer channel used for logo insertion.

Machine Control This set of fields defines the machine control commands this channel will be able to send to a device. The most basic commands are READY and PLAY. Check each command you wish to enable for this source.

ESI-2020 Check this field if you want to use ESI Machine control for a device. This provides enhanced operations over the simple relay based operations.



STEP 5 PRIMARY AUDIO MODE DEFINITION

Locate the pages sub-titled “MC2020 Audio Configuration”.


This section allows you to define how audio will perform in your 2020 system. Audio can enter the 2020 as AES pairs or embedded in the video stream. Regardless of how the audio arrives, it is separated into individual audio channels, processed, and output in both AES and Embedded formats.
For the remainder of this discussion an audio channel is defined as the equivalent of one track of audio,. Accordingly left and right audio constitute 2 audio channels.
Locate the section titled “Primary Audio Source Modes Configuration”
The 2020 supports 4 audio modes which are called MONO, STEREO, SAP, and DOLBY. Each mode is configured to provide a specific mapping of the 8 audio channels associated with a source. The modes are selectable on a source-by-source basis. The primary task you will perform with this configuration step is to define how the 4 modes manipulate the source material audio mapping inside the 2020 chassis.

 

As an example assume the following station audio requirements.



 

1. A minimum of 4 channels of audio are always sent out of the 2020 switcher.

2. Source material with a mono audio track is placed on all 4 output channels.

3.  Source material with a stereo audio track is placed on output channels 1/2 and 3/4 as a paired signal.

4. Source material with a SAP audio track is placed on output channels in a straight through fashion. 1->4 sent to output channels 1->4.

 
The following table shows the typical mapping the factory configures in the 2020.




Mode

The MONO line causes audio from a mono audio track to be output on all four channels because audio channel 1 has been entered in all four output channel columns.


The STEREO line puts left and right audio out left and right as well as channel 3 and 4 because 1 and 2 have been entered in output channels 1 - 2 and 3 – 4 respectively.
The SAP mode is a straight through configuration of 4 channels.
The DOLBY mode is a straight through configuration of 8 audio channels.


STEP 6 PRIMARY AES INPUT DEFINITION

Locate the pages sub-titled “MC2020 Audio Configuration”. Next locate the section titled “Primary AES Audio Input Configuration”


The primary task you will perform in this configuration step is to define the maximum number of AES levels the 2020 will use from PRIMARY AES router sources.
NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE AN AI-2020 AES AUDIO INPUT CARD IN YOUR 2020 SYSTEM IN ORDER TO UTILIZE DISCREET AES AUDIO INPUTS. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A AI-2020 CARD SKIP THIS SECTION.
This section defines the AES sources you plan to use as on-air devices. They can include primary AES Router inputs (PROGRAM, PRESET, PREVIEW) and local AES devices such a digital cart machines EAS devices etc.
You will notice 3 pre-defined input names on the form. (PGM AES, PST AES, PVW AES). These 3 inputs are pre-configured with 1 AES input each. This is the absolute minimum the system supports. Each AES input contains 2 audio channels. This configuration provides the equivalent of a left and right audio input for each primary router input.
If you do not use a PRIMARY AES router in your system you need do nothing more with the 3 pre-defined inputs. Skip ahead.
Locate the column heading AES INPUTS, under which you will see four selections (AES 1, AES 2, AES 3, AES 4). Each selection represents an AES input comprising 2 audio channels. If you require only LEFT/RIGHT audio in your station, then select AES 1 and leave the rest blank. If you additional audio channels to support SAP or descriptive audio signals select additional AES inputs until you have met your AES signal input requirements. A good rule of thumb is to check AES 1 and AES 2 to allow up to 4 audio channels from router sources.

STEP 7 LOCAL AES INPUT DEFINITION

Locate the pages sub-titled “MC2020 Audio Configuration”. Next locate the section titled “Primary AES Audio Input Configuration”


The primary task you will perform in this configuration step is to define the local AES source inputs you plan to use with this 2020 channel. For each source device you plan to use with this 2020 channel enter the following information using 1 line per source.


Input Names Enter the name you want to use for the source. This is the name that will be displayed above the buttons in the AUDIO ONLY section of the MCP Master Control Panel. There are a few rules governing how a source is displayed in the control panel windows.

1. A source name of up to 5 characters with no numbers in the name is displayed on a single line.

2. A source name longer than 5 characters with no numbers in the name is split into 2 4 character lines and displayed centered on each line.


3. A source name containing either numbers or spaces in the name is divided into 2 lines wherever the first space or number is found and displayed centered on each line.

AES Inputs Enter the number of AES inputs you require for this device. Typically this will be a single AES input for left/right. However, if this device supports more AES inputs and you plan to use them add additional AES inputs to cover the max number of inputs you will use with this device.

AES Mode This selection establishes a default mode for this input source. The audio mode for this source can be changed from the MCP Control Panel should it become necessary.

Tally Check the ON-AIR box if you require a tally closure from the MC2020 when this source is active on the PGM output of the switcher. It is also possible to activate a tally when this source is on the PST output of the switcher. To do this check the PST box. Typically this is not a requirement and is left un-checked.

Preroll This field is used to define a preroll time for the device. The preroll time moves the time at which a start command is issued to a device to a point earlier than when the device is transitioned to air. As an example, if you enter a 1.00 second preroll for a device, the start command is issued 1 second before the transition is executed to place the device on-air. Typically, this value is quite small. between 00 and 4 fields..

Machine Control This selection establishes a default mode for this input source. The audio mode for this source can be changed from the MCP Control Panel should it become necessary.



STEP 8 CONTROL ROOM AUDIO MONITOR DEFINITION

Locate the pages sub-titled “MC2020 Audio Configuration”.

The primary task you will perform in this configuration step is to define how the 2020 control room audio monitor will operate. There are two main items that must be configured for this. The first is to define the local AES source inputs you plan to use as monitor sources with this 2020 channel. The second item is to define how the 2020 should output audio signals to the control room audio output on this 2020 channel..
NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE AN AO-2020 AES AUDIO OUTPUT CARD IN YOUR 2020 SYSTEM IN ORDER TO UTILIZE THE CONTROL ROOM AUDIO MONITOR FEATURE OF THE 2020. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A AO-2020 CARD SKIP THIS SECTION.
Locate the section titled “Monitor Audio Source Modes Configuration”
The 2020 supports 4 control room audio monitor modes which are called MONO, STEREO, SAP, and DOLBY. Each mode is configured to provide a specific mapping of the 8 audio channels associated with a source you are monitoring to the output of the 2020 control room audio monitor output.

 

As an example assume the following station audio requirements. These are the same as the previous audio section.



 

1. A minimum of 4 channels of audio are always sent out of the 2020 switcher.

2. Source material with a mono audio track is placed on all 4 output channels.

3.  Source material with a stereo audio track is placed on output channels 1/2 and 3/4 as a paired signal.

4. Source material with a SAP audio track is placed on output channels in a straight through fashion. 1->4 sent to output channels 1->4.
 

Additionally assume the control room monitor system uses a single 2 channel amp/speaker combination.


The following table shows the typical mapping the factory configures in this case.

Output Channel 2

Output Channel 3

Output Channel 4

The MONO line causes audio from audio channel 1 to be output on both output channels because audio channel 1 has been entered in both output channel columns. All remaining output channels will be silent.


The STEREO line causes audio from audio channels 1–2 to be output on output channels 1-2 respectively because 1-2 have been entered in output channels 1-2 respectively. All remaining output channels will be silent.
The SAP line causes audio from audio channels 3–4 to be output to output channels 1-2 respectively because 3-4 have been entered in output channels 1-2 respectively. All remaining output channels will be silent.
The DOLBY mode is a straight through configuration of 8 audio channels. This is a catch all assuming for some reason you need to hear all 8 audio channels at the same time.
Now you must define the AES audio inputs you will use as monitor sources in this 2020 channel.
Locate the section titled “Monitor AES Audio Input Configuration”
You will notice 3 predefined inputs (PGM CLN, PST, CLN, PVW CLN). These inputs are derived internally and do not require further configuration. You can define up to 9 additional monitor sources. For each source you define the name and number of AES audio inputs to be used.
The names are displayed in the MCP2020 control panel LCD audio monitor screen and follow the same naming conventions described above.
The AES inputs you can use are dependant on how many AES inputs you used in the “Primary AES Audio Input Configuration” above. To determine how many AES inputs you have available, count the number of boxes you checked under the AES INPUTS section of the “Primary AES Audio Input Configuration” Then subtract that number from 24. This will be the number of AES inputs you have available. The maximum number can be no greater than 21 (24 – the minimum 3 for PGM, PST, PVW). The minimum number could be 0 if you’ve used all 24 for primary audio inputs.
Now that you know how many AES inputs you have available, begin placing check marks under the AES INPUTS section for each source you have defined. If you run out of AES inputs before you have defined all your monitor sources then you will have to either do with fewer monitor sources or you will have to reconfigure other sources to use fewer AES inputs.


STEP 9 DEFAULT BUTTON ASSIGNMENT DEFINITION

Locate the pages sub-titled “MC2020 Button Assignment Configuration.


The primary task you will perform in this step is to define which sources will be assigned to buttons displayed by the MCP2020 Master Control Panel. These assignments are a default condition and may be changed using the MCP2020 panel assuming assignment changes have been allowed. More on assignment changes a bit later.

Primary Router Button Assignments

Locate the section titled “Primary Router Button Assignments”. You will see 16 button assignment lines. These lines correspond to the 16 buttons located on the MCP2020 Master Control Panel. For each button, enter the primary router source you wish to have that button select. Use the names you entered in the forms sub-titled “MC2020 Primary Router Source Configuration”


The fixed assignment field controls whether this button assignment can be changed using the MCP2020 Master Control Panel. If you place a check mark in this box, the button becomes fixed and cannot be changed by MCP control panels. If the box is left un-checked, the button becomes a soft-button and can be changed by the MCP2020 control panel.

Audio-Only Button Source Assignments

Locate the section titled “Audio-Only Button Source Assignments”. You will see 4 button assignment lines. These lines correspond to the 4 buttons located in the MCP2020 Master Control Panel audio only section. The first button is reserved. The next 3 buttons can be set to any of the audio only sources you defined in the “Primary AES Audio Input Configuration” section of the form sub-titled “MC2020 Audio Configuration”



Keyer Button Source Assignments

You will see 4 keyer buttons assignment lines. These lines correspond to the 4 displays located over the for keyer channels on the MCP2020 control panel. For each channel, enter the name you wish to have the panel display. All selections are fixed at this time.




STEP 10 MCP2020 Master Control Panel Configuration



In order to complete this form it will be necessary to have the system summary form you filled out at the beginning of this process available.
Locate the pages sub-titled “MCP2020 Master Control Panel Configuration”. You must complete a “MCP2020 Master Control Panel Configuration” form for each MCP2020 Master Control Panel in your system. If you have more than 1 make extra copies as necessary. Refer to the System Summary document to determine how many MCP2020 control panels you will need to configure.

MCP2020 Panel Name Fill in this field in using the “Control Panel Name” field on the “MC2020 System Summary” form.




MCP2020 Panel IP Address Fill in this field in using the “IP Address” field you entered on the “MC2020 System Summary” form.




2020 Chassis Assignment Definition


This section is used to define which 2020 processor chassis this panel will be able to access.

2020 Chassis Name This field should be filled in using the names entered in the 2020 Processor Name field of the “MC2020 System Summary” form. Any names entered in this section will be accessible to this MCP2020 control panel by depressing the associated channel select button on this MCP2020 control panel.




Connect Mode This field determines how the MCP2020 control panel attempts to connect to the associated 2020 signal processor. The normal mode is USI NMS and you should check this box. Only in very extraordinary circumstances should be select the Direct IP method. Contact USI customer service if you believe this is a requirement.




Startup Actions This section defines what actions the panel should automatically perform after the application software comes on-line. Check the Auto Connect box to have the panel try to automatically connect to the chassis after a restart.

Chassis IP Address This section is used only if connect mode is set to Direct IP and is typically never used.

Port Number This section is used only if connect mode is set to Direct IP and is typically used.



STEP 11 ESI2020 Machine Control Configuration



In order to complete this form it will be necessary to have the following forms available:

1. System Summary

2. MC2020 System Source Attributes form for all SD HD devices in your system.
Locate the pages sub-titled “ESI2020 Configuration”. You must complete a “ESI2020 Configuration” form for each ESI2020 Machine Control Device in your system. If you have more than 1 make extra copies as necessary. Refer to the System Summary document to determine how many ESI2020 machine control devices you will need to configure.

ESI2020 System Name Fill in this field in using the “ESI2020 Controller Name” field on the “MC2020 System Summary” form.




ESI2020 IP Address Fill in this field in using the “IP Address” field you entered on the “MC2020 System Summary” form.




Serial Port Configuration This section is used to define the devices connected to the ESI2020 controller.

The recommended way to fill out this section is described after the field descriptions.



Port # This corresponds to the serial port number called out on the back of the ESI-2020 controller chassis.




Matrix Input Name Fill in this section with names from the Source Attribute forms where you marked the ESI-2020 check box.



Device Type Check the BVW-75 box if you are connecting this port to a device supporting the SONY Serial Control Protocol.

The loop thru box should only be checked if you plan to use the control loop-thru feature. This feature allows a 3rd party device to directly control a device connected to the next higher even numbered serial port on this ESI-2020 controller. If this is active the device type for the next port MUST be set to one of the available control protocols and that port must be connected to a controllable device utilizing the same control protocol.
Baud Check the box for the baud rate you wish to use with this device. This is typically set to 38400
Char Select the number of bits used to transmit a character on this serial port. This is typically set to 8.

Stop Select the number of stop bits you wish to use on this serial port. This is typically set to 1.
Flow Control Select the type of flow control you wish to use on this serial port. This is typically set to NONE.
Recommended Procedure.
1. Gather all the Primary Router Source Attributes” forms you filled out for all the SD and HD processing channels in your system.

2. Go through each set of forms and locate all sources that have the ESI-2020 attribute checked.

3. For each source you locate, enter the name located in the Matrix Input Name field.

4. When you have finished adding all ESI-2020 devices, review the ESI-2020 configuration ensuring you haven’t duplicated any device names.



STEP 12 MC2020 Advanced Configuration Items




Advanced Audio Controls
ACTIVE AUDIO LEVELS The number of audio channels the 2020 can output is selectable from 1 to 8. The factory default is 8. This number rarely needs to be changed. Sometimes other equipment does not handle embedded channels above 4 correctly. This setting can be used to compensate for this problem. Typically reducing this number to 4 solves the problem.

AUDIO DIM REDUCTION There is a control on the MCP2020 Audio screen labeled MONITR DIM. This button reduces the level of the control room monitor output by some number of db. The default for this value is –30db. If you require a larger amount of reduction set this number to a higher value. Most customers seem to like –30db.



Advanced Video Controls

MIX LOCATION The mix location determines where a mix takes place relative to the keyer levels you have installed in the system. If you require 1 or more keyer levels to operate downstream from the mix point, place a check mark in the board prior to the DSK(s)


PST KEY RESET The 2020 normally turns all PST KEY ENABLE buttons off after a transition. If you prefer one or more keyers to remain active on PST after a transition, place a checkmark in the desired keyer level box.
DSK TRANSFER The 2020 does not normally transfer the PST status of a DSK to the PGM bus due to a transition. If you prefer one or more DSK(s) to transfer the PST state to PGM when a transition occurs. Place a checkmark in the desired keyer level box.

NOTE: This only works if you have moved the mix location ahead of the DSK keyer level.
TRANSITION SPEEDS The 2020 supports 3 user selectable transition speeds (FAST, MEDIUM, SLOW). The default times are .5, 1, and 2 seconds respectively. If you wish to change one or more of them enter the number of fields you wish the transition to take under the appropriate column.

Serial Port Configuration

The 2020 contains 4 serial ports. These ports are used to communicate with external devices such as Automation systems and Squeezemax. If you require a connection to an external device, check a box in each of the DEVICE TYPE, BAUD, Char, Par, Stop, and FLOW CNTL boxes as required to communicate with the device in question. Here are the default selections for each device type listed.

Misc Relay Configuration

The 2020 supports a feature known as Miscellaneous Relays. These relays are not linked with any of the normal machine control or transition operations performed by the 2020. Up to 32 relay functions can be configured.


For each miscellaneous relay function you require do the following:

1. Enter a descriptive name in the Function Description field.

2. Select whether the closure type should be PULSE (momentary) or LATCH (maintained).

3. Enter the relay number you wish to use. If you do not enter a number it will be auto-selected by the factory during configuration.


Take Relay Defintion
The 2020 supports a feature whereby a relay can be closed whenever a transition is executed. This can be used to connect to external clocks or whatever the station requires. If you desire this feature check the enabled box and indicated which relays you would like to use. If you do not select a relay it will be auto-selected by the factory during configuration.
