Video Server Clip Management Software
- Download and
try it out! (Formerly BUFkeys)
- Video Server Clip Management via VDCP
BUFclips runs on a PC and connects to a
VQC-3000-RS Videotape Quality Controller or VTC-4000-RS Single or
Multi VTR Controller to add VDCP protocol video server
control. The controllers also continue to control VTRS using
the standard "9-pin" RS-422 protocol.
Clips available on the connected video server are displayed and can
be loaded for playback or added to play lists. New features
The clip management and VDCP features are enabled when a USB "Dongle"
security key is connected to the PC, without it, BUFclips operates
in demonstration mode.
Automated Timecode Entry feature (FREE!)
BUFclips also includes the automated
timecode entry features of BUFkeys. BUFkeys features are
always active, even in demonstration mode. Timecode numbers
are typed into any running application when a "hotkey" is
pressed on the keyboard as though they were entered on the PC
keyboard itself. The typed TC format can include pre and post
characters and drop frame indication. Up to five miscellaneous
strings (TC error, dropout, etc.) can be configured to be
typed when hotkeys are hit. A hotkey can send the controlled
device to any timecode number copied into the PC's clipboard to
quickly return to previously captured locations. Download the
BUFclips.exe program, run it, and read the BUFclips.xml file for
To download BUFclips:
- Download the zip
file and extract the 2 files to your hard disk (the desktop
should work OK). You cannot install directly from the
extraction window. Then run the Setup.bat file. It will
create the necessary folders and place files into their correct
locations. On screen directions make installation
simple. BUF Technology software never makes changes to the
registry or slows your PC in any way. When you delete the
install directory (C:\BUFclips), everything is completely
removed. The exception is the third party "Dongle"
security key drivers which must be separately removed. Dongle
driver installation can be skipped during installation if a Dongle
is not purchased for optional features.
