wow Mark… to make this happen is so incredibly involved compared to the 1980s when it all happened so easily. We lived and died by comet-trailing and posterization – especially when it added absolutely nothing to the production.
Additional notes – you forgot to mention the use of “controlled” feedback through the DVE. Always gave that special look through the ADO 1000.
Chyrons often were done in yellow “because it read better” over the overly lit footage – still no edge and the worst drop shadow possible.
This all wasn’t JUST public access – most broadcast was the same.

Back in the old tape-to-tape days, 99% of the time a perfect dissolve was 17 frames. Didn’t matter what I was cutting – 17 frames and the producers loved it. Then I’d hit the “big red button” after 15 previews of the same thing…

The 7506s are great. Pretty much industry standard. The one thing you have to be seriously aware of is hearing fatigue. You’re going to find yourself bumping up the volume throughout the day. Make sure you take the headphones off and let your ears rest MANY times a day. Easy way to diminsh your hearing quickly.

Except that you might not want your computer to fry before you finish your projects. Yous hould be able to 1) get your $200 back if you decide to sell the computer. Remember, without a power supply, it’s worth nothing. 2) Keep the machine running as a back up or graphics station. Well worth the $200 investment. you can’t replace any computer for $200. Just my opinion.

remove the blackburst from your UVW. Use a short BNC cable and connect the 2 ref ports. The deck will read sync from itself. Should get rid of the rolling bar.
