    The bus on a switcher whose inputs are directly switched to the line out

    • A.

      Preset Bus

    • B.

      Program Bus

    • C.

      M/E Bus

    Correct Answer
    B. Program Bus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Program Bus. In a switcher, the program bus refers to the bus that directly switches the inputs to the line out. This means that the program bus is responsible for selecting and routing the desired inputs to be outputted. It is commonly used in broadcasting and live production environments to control the switching of video and audio signals.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    A row of buttons on a switcher.

    • A.

      Delegation Controls

    • B.

      Bus

    • C.

      Downstream Keyer (DSK)

    Correct Answer
    B. Bus
    Explanation
    The term "bus" refers to a row of buttons on a switcher. In the context of a switcher, a bus is a group of inputs or outputs that can be selected and controlled together. Each button on the bus represents a different input or output source, and pressing a button will activate that source. The bus allows the operator to quickly switch between different sources and control which sources are being displayed or recorded.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Delegation controls are used to assign the buses specific function like a dissolve or effect.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Delegation controls are indeed used to assign specific functions to buses, such as dissolve or effect. This means that the statement "Delegation controls are used to assign the buses specific function like a dissolve or effect" is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Before using the take button you must set its transition rate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because before using the take button, it is not necessary to set its transition rate. The transition rate is a parameter that determines the speed at which the take button transitions from one state to another. However, setting the transition rate is not a prerequisite for using the take button.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    The auto transition fulfills the same function as the fader bar.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The auto transition fulfills the same function as the fader bar because both are used to smoothly transition between different video sources or scenes. The auto transition feature automatically switches between sources or scenes at a preset time or based on specific triggers, while the fader bar allows for manual control of the transition by adjusting the intensity or speed of the transition. Both the auto transition and fader bar contribute to creating seamless and professional-looking video transitions.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    You can not see the DSK (downstream keyer) activated if black is punched n the program bus.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If black is punched on the program bus, it means that the black video signal is being sent to the output. In this case, the DSK (downstream keyer) would not be activated because the black signal would cover up any graphics or overlays that the DSK is supposed to display. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    It is impossible to have both program and preset activated at the same time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that it is not possible to have both the program and preset activated simultaneously. However, the correct answer is "False," indicating that it is indeed possible to have both the program and preset activated at the same time.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Everything punched on the program bus will go on-line.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When it is stated that "everything punched on the program bus will go on-line," it means that any data or instructions that are inputted or programmed into the program bus will be accessible and available for use. This implies that the program bus is responsible for transmitting information to the online system or network. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    If you want to add a lower third from the Deko you should:

    • A.

      Press CG1 on the preset bus and dissolve

    • B.

      Assign the CG! to the downstream keyer and activate it

    • C.

      Cut directly to CG1 on the program bus

    Correct Answer
    B. Assign the CG! to the downstream keyer and activate it
    Explanation
    To add a lower third from the Deko, you need to assign the CG1 to the downstream keyer and activate it. This means that the graphics generated by CG1 will be overlaid onto the video signal, allowing the lower third to be displayed on the screen. Simply pressing CG1 on the preset bus and dissolving or cutting directly to CG1 on the program bus will not activate the downstream keyer and the lower third will not be visible.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    The director wants a series of dissolves exactly one second long, you do what?

    • A.

      Move the fader bar manually as best you can

    • B.

      Set the auto transition to 30 and "punch" the button each time

    • C.

      Set the auto transition to 24 and "punch" the button each time

    Correct Answer
    B. Set the auto transition to 30 and "punch" the button each time
    Explanation
    Setting the auto transition to 30 and "punching" the button each time will create a series of dissolves exactly one second long. The auto transition setting determines the duration of the transition, and setting it to 30 will ensure a 1-second dissolve. "Punching" the button each time means manually triggering the transition at the desired timing, allowing for precise control over the length of each dissolve.

    To have camera 3 appear in the preview monitor and then dissolve it, you must:

    • A.

      Press CAM3 in the preset bus and move the fader bar

    • B.

      Press CAM3 in the program bus and move the fader bar

    • C.

      Press CAM3 and activate the downstream keyer

    Correct Answer
    A. Press CAM3 in the preset bus and move the fader bar
    Explanation
    To have camera 3 appear in the preview monitor and then dissolve it, you need to press CAM3 in the preset bus and move the fader bar. This means that you select camera 3 as the source in the preset bus and then adjust the fader bar to control the transition or dissolve effect. This allows you to smoothly transition from the previous camera source to camera 3 in the preview monitor. Pressing CAM3 in the program bus and moving the fader bar would only switch the program output to camera 3 without the dissolve effect. Activating the downstream keyer is unrelated to the desired outcome.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    To switch from CAM1 to CAM2 by pressing only 1 button, you need to press:

    • A.

      The CAM2 button on the preset bus

    • B.

      The CAM2 button on the key bus

    • C.

      The CAM2 button on the program bus

    Correct Answer
    C. The CAM2 button on the program bus
    Explanation
    To switch from CAM1 to CAM2 by pressing only 1 button, you need to press the CAM2 button on the program bus. This means that the program bus has the ability to directly switch between different camera feeds. The preset bus and key bus do not have this capability, so pressing the CAM2 button on those buses would not achieve the desired result.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    The program bus will not send the selected video source to the:

    • A.

      Preview monitor

    • B.

      Mix bus

    • C.

      Line out

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Preview monitor
    B. Mix bus
    Explanation
    The program bus will not send the selected video source to the preview monitor and mix bus. The preview monitor is used to preview the video before it is sent to the output, so the program bus does not send the video source to it. Similarly, the mix bus is used to mix multiple audio sources together, so the program bus does not send the video source to it either. However, the program bus does send the selected video source to the line out, which is the final output for the video.
