    .A couple of shot-in-the-dark guesses. Some are a bit insulting…just go with them.
    Is the lens cover shutter in the lens shade open?
    Is the iris setting closed completely by manual settings?
    Is the ND filter in place?
    Do you see color bars on the screen or viewfinder if they are activated?
    What are your record setting? Format, FPS, so on.

    I have one of these cameras but haven’t used it in a few years. I’m going off of memory.

    Total shot in the dark here. Try cropping the right edge slightly?

    CMYK graphic file?

    Try matching the sample rates on the Teradek itself, not in your NLE timeline.
    I’m not familiar with the Teradek Bond so I’m not sure this is even an option. Just a guess.

    A shot in the dark…
    Make sure your audio bit rate is set to match your video format and quality settings.

    I’m looking at a photo of the back of the DVR28 deck and it would appear to have SDI I/O. Any I/O within the blue boarder graphics will be digital. The Serial A/V BNC connectors should be SDI unless the Digital I/O is an option of some sort on this deck.

    Can you open your file in PowerPoint? Is it a .ppt?
    If it is, you should be able to open it and edit the slides and output .jpg’s or .png’s of the slides. Just export each part of the build as a separate graphic and do the build in FCP.
    If your file(s) are not .ppt’s but are some other graphic format, there’s not a lot you can do. See if you can get a copy of the original PowerPoint .ppt file in that case?

    Just had this happen to me this weekend. I shot outside in bright sunlight and forgot to dial in ND Filter 4, instead shooting on Filter 3 with the lens stopped down to a very small opening. It was so bright shooting that it was difficult to see a good picture in the viewfinder. When the aperture on the kit lenses for this camera is closed down to a very small opening, the picture will be blurred, especially on wider shots. (iris blade diffraction?) It looks just like a back focus issue, but worse as you noticed. The trick is to dial in Filter 4 to get the aperture opened wider and even throwing an extra ND or a polarizer on the lens. The sweet spot for these lenses seems to be around f-5.6 to f-8. The smaller the opening, the fuzzier the picture. I figured this out years ago but it still catches me once in a while…like this weekend for instance.

    I’m going to guess that the switches set the inputs to deal with the less than stable outputs from a VTR as opposed to the more or less stable outputs from a source like a camera. It may switch it into a hetrodyne decoding mode or one with a larger TBC window to handle the instability of the non brodcast VTR.
    Switch it on and see if you can see any noticeable differences, especially of you have a waveform/vector monitor available.
