 Interface
RGB port, serial port
 
    genlock
  • composite and Y/C inputs and outputs
  • automatic input recognition with priority for the Y/C signal
  • adjustable color, contrast, luminance and white level (separate red, green, blue) of the source video signal
  • adjustable black level of the computer image
  • picture parameters can be stored and recalled
  • independent fading of the computer and video image
  • fade to black
  • manual fading - the faders serve to set the degree of blending
  • automatic fading - the faders serve to set the fading time between 0.2 - 20 seconds
  • RGB monitor switch: switches the display between genlock and computer picture without affecting the video outputs
  • bluebox keying switch: turns on Chroma and Luma keying - finds a specific color with a certain tolerance (to compensate for noise) in the video picture for keying
  • keying invert switch: when inactive, video is projected onto the computer image where color 0 is - when active, video is shown at positions other than color 0
  • alpha overlay switch: allows semi-transparent colors or anti-aliasing
  • built in black burst generator for recording the computer image without receiving a video source
  • built in test image generator for optimized adjustment of all image parameters
    sound mixer
  • two stereo inputs (4× RCA)
  • microphone input (1× 3.5 mm jack)
  • stereo output (2× RCA)
  • microphone volume adjustment knob
  • faders control the volume of the two audio channels
  • during automatic fading the video and audio faders can be synchronized
  • adjustable treble, bass and gain for all three audio sources independently
    notes
  • LCD display for picture and audio parameters and values
  • VITC timecode support
  • all functions can be controlled through the serial port
  • integrated ARexx port
  • standby mode - when the genlock is not needed it is possible to work on the computer without disconnecting it - all Amiga screen modes are passed through to the RGB monitor
  • for operation with the A3000's video enhancer, the "A3000" jumper has to be set on the Sirius' circuit board
