Reverse Wipe via BVE-9100

How does one reverse the direction of a pattern/DME wipe via the 9100 Wipe dialog? I can set the direction of the wipe pattern on the switcher(MVS-8000) but under edit control it always switches back to "Normal" at the edit.

Other edit controllers would use a negative sign in front of the wipe number and others would use a different range of numbers for the reverse direction. I can't figure out what the 9100 needs... No mention of wipe direction in the docs.

Also, has anyone been able to Switcher Learn a key on the P/P bus on the MVS-8000 via BVE-9100? It works on an M/E keyer but not the P/P bus, where the keys labelled as DSKs.

Sorry for not paying attention here, been very busy... Thanks Steve, adding 3000 to the wipe number is the ticket. We had some folks from Sony here last week and I got to sit down with Dana and go over the MVS/BVE interaction a little bit. As far as the SW MEM and the P/P DSK's, we couldn't get an answer that day. It maybe a bug or a IDC constant that needs to be tweaked on the 9100. I'll have to follow up, since I haven't heard back from the Sony folks I met with. Hey Matt, I bet the Kalypso will work nicely with an Editware VPE-341. I know where you could get one cheap! ;-)

Just took (I mean, JUST) delivery of a Grass Valley Kalypso Duo for our primary control room. The room is primarily a live TV control room, with the ability to do some editing (currently using a Sony DVS-8000 and BVE-9100). From my research, the BVE-9100 can handle the Kalypso with GVG-4000 protocol...is anyone else using the 9100/Kalypso combination? Just looking for a little guidance, and maybe what some other facilities have experienced with these two devices together... Thanks! Matt @ WNYT/Albany

Re the sw learn - do you have the 'half m/e' software - only on mvs 8000a - with only two dsks? If so, I think the 9100 won't recognise them as they're in the output card, not 'real' keyers to the 9100. If you have four dsks on your p/p bus, it's not that...

Hi Paul! Did you find a solution how to make a reverse wipe with your 9100? I haven't worked with a 9100, but when you need the reverse wipe with a BVE 2000, you have to add a '-' to the wipe number. If you need wipe number 12 for example, you have to program it as wipe -12. Chris

I think you add 3000 to the wipe number. Example, if you want to reverse wipe 17, you tape in 3017.
