With the VT 2 can i automatically title each video in?
say "camera1" on the first and 2,3,4 on the others... and when switching have automatically the cam number text on my output?

It is very important for me...

Tnx

Not really, no, Fabrizio. You can tell by a glance at the switcher, of course -- but no way to automatically overlay the camera number.

You could, however, do it fairly easily manually: set up and save a CG project with pages that say "Source 1", "Source 2", etc. Then open the project in the CG player, and assign that to the DSK. With the DSK superimposed on the output, when you change to camera 2 (for example) just enter the digit "2" in the CG Player page # field to display "Source 2" over the Toaster output.

Of course this ties up the DSK so it can't be used for other purposes...
