Subject:   Media 100 Gets an SD Video Signal but No Video Is Visible

Issue :  When user goes to digitize SD material into Media 100, the source is recognized and the V is green, but the video preview is black, and the resulting video file has no video.  Audio works fine.

Cause :  Default setting set to a modern digital standard.

Steps to work around the issue :

  1. Close the Edit Suite window, but keep Media 100 open.
  2. Go into the Preferences and into the Video Input preferences.
  3. Set the Video Pedistal from 0 IRE to 7.5 IRE.
  4. Close Preferences, Re-Launch Edit Suite and try Digitizing Again.
