TV One adds transitions to switchers
TV One has added new special effect transitions to the C2-1000 series and C2-2000 series of switchers and scalers. In addition to cuts, a wide variety of fades and transitions are now available.
The new transitions will fade the first video source to reveal black then fade back to the newly selected video source. The default background is black, but it can be changed to any color. If the unit is set to mix mode, the video is revealed during the fade out and fade in. This method provides the illusion of a true cross fade, even in single-channel units.
The wipe transition has a choice of left to right, right to left, top to bottom, bottom to top, diagonal and diamond.
