VTR Control Plug-in

You can use it to control up to two VTRs for combined file-based/tape-based playout. Enable it and press Configure. A dialog will open for you to make the necessary setting. First, enter the VTR Name and the COM port, to which it is connected. Then, specify the maximum rewind time.

IMPORTANT! Please, note that in the playlist you do not have to insert VTR events that are overlapping in relation to the maximum rewind time!

Below you can make some VTR-specific fine-tuning: Play delay and VTR response delay.

Further, set the default frame rate of the output in the Default FPS field. Finally, specify the Time code mode and the User bits source.

For details on how to insert VTR control events in the playlist, please see the relevant section above.
