TC1/VMC1 Notes:

**WITH MULTI-PART UPDATES BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD ALL PARTS BEFORE INSTALLING**

 

7-0-190802 (August 2, 2019)

Please note that updates have been made to Control Surface operations for some models.  In particular, some units did not previously provide a means for the Joystick’s PTZ delegate to ‘Follow Preview’ row selection.  Please see the User Guide for details.

 

(Preview: In a future revision, “PTZ SEL” operation will be extended to other Switcher sources, providing consistent Joystick delegate selection using the KEY row – regardless of source type.  For example, choosing an M/E with a LiveSet effect will give you zoom and pan control using the Joystick.  And since Premium Access membership adds ‘virtual PTZ’ control (a.k.a. Pan and Scan) to static cameras, Media Players and Buffers alike, members will be able to use PTZ SEL to delegate any Switcher source.  Or, if you’d rather, use the Follow Preview function to completely eliminate manually selecting Joystick delegates!)
