Definitions for "DSK"
Keying in a vision mixer that electronically appears after all other operator functions. Any operations performed on the mixer M/E s will not affect the downstream key video, hence any signals (e. g. captions) inserted at this point, are always in the foreground.
Downstream Keying
An effect available in some special effects generators* and video mixers in which one video signal is keyed on top of another video signal. The lightest portions of the DSK signal replace the source video leaving the dark areas showing the original video image. Optionally, the DSK signal can be inverted so the dark portions are keyed rather than the lightest portions allowing a solid color to be added to the keyed portions. The DSK input is most commonly a video camera* or character generator*. The DSK signal must be genlocked* to the other signals.
