Note
Jumpers J20 and J22 on the MKE-3901 must be set to Balanced when the video breakout module is used. Similarly, jumpers J17 and J18 on the MKE-3901 must be set to the same standards as jumper packs A2 and A1, respectively.

The ICONM-BO-V video breakout module includes two jumper packs and five jumpers. The jumper packs (A1 and A2) are used for setting the serial port standard (RS-232 or RS-422). The individual jumpers (J1, J2, J3, and J4) are used to set the impedance of AES Audio-Over 1 and Audio-Over 2. The orientation of the jumper pins in Figure 2-6 and Figure 2-7 matches the way you view them as you read the “J” labelling on the board. To set the jumper packs, and individual jumpers, follow these steps: 1. Locate jumper packs A1 and A2 on the ICONM-BO-V module, as shown in Figure 2-4. 2. If necessary, extract the jumper packs, and then rotate them to match the RS-232 or RS-422 setting as required. Figure 2-4 shows both serial ports in RS-422.

Using the BKGD Button
The BKGD button operates like a toggle button. When you select the BKGD button, the button tally illuminates, indicating that a background transition (from the Preset bus to the Program bus) will occur when you select Take or Preroll. When you press the BKGD button a second time, the background transition will be disabled on the next transition and the button tally is no longer illuminated. As a result, Program is displayed on Preset.

Using the Key 1 to Key 6 Buttons
A key makes it possible to cut a hole in the program input and replace it with a separate key fill of the same size. The key source and attributes can be set using the Control Cluster (see page 101).Transitioning the keys is accomplished using the Transition Control Cluster (see page 106). You can change the key priority by using the IconMaster configuration utility software. Each keyer has an input source display window. The display window can be programmed using the IconMaster configuration utility software to indicate the source ID, and it illuminates red when the keyer is on-air. The Key buttons operate like toggle buttons. When you press a Key button, its tally illuminates, indicating that a keyer transition (from the Preset bus to the Program bus) will occur when Take is selected. Once the transition is taken, the Input source display tallies red to indicate that the keyer is on-air. To take a keyer off-air, press the on-air Key button. If the Key button tally is already illuminated, selecting the Take button will take the key off-air. If the Key button tally is not illuminated, the Take button will have no effect when you press it.

Using the A/O 1 and A/O 2 Buttons
An audio-over allows you to reduce the level of the audio on the program channel and mix a separate audio channel on top. The audio-over source and attributes can be set using the Control Cluster (see page 101). Transitioning the audio-over is accomplished using the Transition Control Cluster (see page 106). An input source display window is located above each audio-over button. The display window can be programmed using the IconMaster configuration utility software to indicate the source ID, and it illuminates red when the audio-over is on-air. The A/O buttons operate like toggle buttons. When you press an A/O button, its button tally illuminates, indicating that an audio-over transition (from the Preset bus to the Program bus) will occur when Take is selected. To take an audio-over off-air, press the on-air A/O button (its button tally will illuminate to reflect the selection). If the A/O button tally is already illuminated, press Take to take the A/O off-air. If the A/O button tally is not illuminated, pressing the Take button will have no effect.

Connecting an IconMaster to an EAS Device
The federal Emergency Alert System (EAS) enables broadcasters, cable providers, and emergency managers to receive, store, forward, and originate emergency alert messages as required by the Federal Communications Commission. EAS allows broadcast stations, cable systems, participating satellite companies, and emergency managers, and other services to send and receive emergency information quickly and automatically, even if these facilities are unattended. Specially equipped devices decode EAS messages for distribution. The IconMaster can be connected directly to an EAS encoder/decoder or character generator, thus enabling you to insert emergency notification messages directly into the broadcast stream as a regular scrolling text crawl. An external EAS receiver is required to allow this feature to become operational. For details please contact Customer Service.

Communication Protocols
The IconLogo currently supports three communication protocols employed by EAS devices: TFT1, Sage2, and Gorman-Redlich (GR)3.

RS-232 Connection
The EAS device is connected to the RS-232-D port on the IconMaster ICONM-BO-V breakout module. See Table 1-7 on page 26 for pinout details. If the IconMaster ICONM-BO-V breakout module is not being used, the EAS device must be wired directly to the Multi-Function I/O connector on the MKE-3901-BM (see Figure 1-18 on page 17). Pins 57 (RS-232-D-RX) and 58 (RS-232-D-TX) are reserved for this purpose (see Table 1-1 on page 18). One ground connection from Table 1-1 is also required.

Configuring the EAS Device
For basic configurations and preparations please see the specific EAS device user manual. No additional special settings are needed to communicate with an IconMaster. The standard signal will be taken out from the EAS device’s serial port.

Figure 7-9. Viewing a Fill File Most logos will be derived from a Fill file, so when a file is selected as the Fill source for a new logo, IconLogo looks for alpha information in the file from which to derive a key. Failing this, it simply assigns a box key (or soft-edged bounding rectangle) so that the whole of the fill source is visible on screen. Key Source The key source associated with a logo determines how much of the logo’s fill source will appear over the main program video. The key source is the primary source of shape and transparency information for the logo. It is the quality of the key that determines the quality of the overlay for use in channel idents, where picture information needs to be seen through the graphic. It also determines the quality of the feathering (or anti-aliasing) on the edges to provide apparently smooth transitions between background program video and graphics.1 The simple example in Figure 7-1 on page 152 shows a fill source, an associated key source; the resulting logo (see Figure 7-2 on page 152) would display as a logo over a background. Notice that where the key is black (0%) there is no foreground logo visible, and where the key is white (100%) there is no background visible. All other levels produce a proportional mix between background image and logo fill.

Note
In computer graphics, a filter is an effect that can be applied to a bitmapped image. Only data that matches a defined pattern is allowed to pass through the filter. An alpha channel is a filter that selectively includes or excludes certain values. Typically, you wouldn't define an alpha channel on a pixel-by-pixel basis, but rather per object. Different parts of the object would have different levels of transparency depending on how much you wanted the background to show through. This allows you to create rectangular objects that appear as if they are irregular in shape — you define the rectangular edges as transparent so that the background shows through.

Each logo can take its key source from a number of internally and externally generated sources. The most commonly used will be the key file, normally produced by the graphic artist at the same time as the fill source. Some file formats allow storage of both fill and key source in the one file. This is sometimes known as an alpha channel for the file. There are six key sources for IconLogo logo elements. These are picked from one of two Key Source soft button selections of the Logo menu. The first selection shows the following items: • • • Key File… selects the File menu from which you can pick a key file. Ext. Key (This parameter does not apply in the IconMaster configuration.) More… selects another set of key source selections. • • • • • …Box selects a soft edged bounding rectangle for the fill source. …Self derives a key from the luminance content of the fill source. …Fill Alpha takes the key from the alpha channel of the fill file (if it has one). …Exit returns to the main Key Source soft button selection.

Copy/Clear… selects a new set of soft button options which allow copying and swapping of sources between fill and key. These options are as follows: • • • • Clear clears the current key selection. Swap swaps fill and key sources. Copy Fill File copies the fill file selection over to be the key source as well. Exit… returns to the main Key Source soft button selection.

A description of each of the key sources follows, along with an explanation of how to select them from the main Key Source selection of the Logo menu. When Key File is selected from the Logo menu, the menu changes automatically to the Pick Key submenu of the File menu. Here you will see a selection of files and a set of navigation soft buttons that enable you to find, view, and select the Key file (see Figure 7-10).

Note
In computer graphics, anti-aliasing is a software technique for diminishing “jaggies” (stairstep-like lines that should be smooth). Anti-aliasing reduces the prominence of jaggies by surrounding the stairsteps with intermediate shades of color. Antialiasing is sometimes called oversampling.

As a logo may consist of a key source filled with an internally generated matte color, whenever a key file is selected on a logo that does not have an assigned fill source, the matte source is automatically selected for the fill source. Where the logo already has a fill source assigned, the fill source remains unchanged. The box key is an internally generated rectangular box that exactly fits around the selected fill source. In a fill file, the box generated is the same size as the fill source, but with anti-aliased or softened edges to prevent ringing where bright colors may be used in the fill graphic. To select the box key source, follow these steps: 1. Select the More… soft button. 2. Select the …Box soft button. The menu will return to the main soft button selection. Some logo sources (normally containing luminance information only) are designed to be both key and fill source for the logo. These can be keyed by selecting the More… soft button from the Key Source selection, then selecting the …Self soft button. With Self key selected, the key source is derived from the luminance content of the Fill source, which must be a Fill file. Some graphic file formats are designed to contain the fill and key information in what is more sometimes referred to as the alpha channel. The file formats that may contain readable alpha channels are • • MGI – the previous generation IconLogo file format generated by LogoWin SGI – Silicon Graphics Image format

These remain on-line and instantly accessible at all times. all previously-created logos are loaded from disk (local and/or network) into the large on-line graphics and audio stores on IconLogo’s main board. the locking mechanism in the Engineering Menu needs to be disabled. You can change location of these files from the Engineering menu on the control panel. For details. but to modify or create a logo. For more information about creating logos. You will not need to view or modify these files (and Harris recommends that they are only modified by IconLogo). see “Navigating the File Menu” on page 187. Selecting a key during this time will have no effect. After you create a logo. This requires that the source of the graphics and audio files and the directory containing the Logo Definition Files (either compact flash card or network file system) must be available whenever changes are made. 999 logo “slots” have been made available for instant recall. but you should be aware of their existence to understand how the system works. Logo Definition Files are kept by default in the compact flash card in the /pcdisk/llf directory. the key functionality will return to normal operation. Note View access to the Logo menu is available at all times. or that you use a larger compact flash card and separate directories created for each logo set. the graphics files used to create it must be accessible to IconLogo during power-up and when any changes are made to it. This file contains all the information about the logo (in a readable text format). A Logo Definition File is created internally for each logo created. If many large animations and full screen clocks are stored. Since IconLogo has such a large on-line store for both graphics and audio. 214 IconMaster Installation and Operation Manual . In this way many different sets of up to 999 logos can be created and maintained for on-line access.Chapter 9: IconLogo Operation IconLogo Operation Workflow Logo Storage and Loading Note Harris recommends that you use different compact flash cards for each logo set. Once all logos have been loaded. Each of these 999 logo slots can be one of five basic types: • • • • • • Static logos Animated logo (which may also be full-screen clips) Analog clock Digital clock (with or without temperature display) Quick select Text crawl and titling CAUTION On power up. the Key functions for Keys 3 to 6 are not available until all of the IconLogo logos have been loaded from the compact flash card to the online memory. System warnings and the status display in the Engineering menu give the user indications that the storage is nearing full capacity.

The file system on this card is compatible with the MS-DOS® operating system and. IconLogo’s file system is contained on a removable compact flash card that is located in a socket on the front of the lower board in the IconLogo system. or UNIX) to transfer files directly onto the compact flash from the host computer. while perfectly adequate for installations where logos are not frequently updated. This system. files may be transferred directly on and off the card with a PC. will not suit busier systems where logos may be required to change daily or even be updated during programs. Sandisk. Networking the file system provides the user with several options for transferring files on and off the compact flash card and even provides the opportunity to have many IconLogo units sharing the same graphics files and logos. The various options are described in this appendix for users who wish to take advantage of the flexibility the networked system offers. The contents of this folder are the logs currently on the system. These storage options include the following: • • • Compact Flash Storage Compact Flash LogoTransfer Utility File Transfer Protocol.

(See page 121 for details. Note See“IconLogo DDR Storage Capacity” on page 247 for information concerning the storage capacities of various DDR modules that can be used with the IconLogo. The only time the card is read after power-up is if new logos are created or others modified. Fuji. and Lexar. For this reason. File Transfer Protocol (FTP) The IconLogo system supports standard File Transfer Protocol. Harris specifically recommends those manufactured by IBM. In this way. but allows faster and remote file transfer using a standard 100Base-T network.Chapter 9: IconLogo Operation Logo Storage and Transfer Options Several different file storage options are available with the IconLogo IconMaster modules. The card must always be in place when the machine is powered up. This uses an FTP application on a host computer (Microsoft Windows operating systems. your system will still have all logos and graphics files stored on the compact flash.) This Windows plug-in allows for IconLogo systems to be represented as folders. with the use of a compact flash PCMCIA adapter. LogoTransfer Utility Note LogoCreator software allows for conversion of image files to an mg2 format file. or FTP. the file system on the compact flash card is networked. logo file transfer times are improved significantly. Combined with the LogoCreator software. This process can be performed safely when IconLogo is in operation because all data is read from the card when the machine is powered up.
