OUTPUT STATUS

Figure 4-11. MatrixPRO Status Menu (sample)

This menu shows all current input-to-outputassignments (or “routes”). Any input can be routed to any combination of the 8 outputs. Please note:

When you first display the Status Menu, the lowest 6 of the 8 input/output assignments are shown.

Use the ADJUST knob to scroll through the input/output display.

~Turn the knob clockwise (CW) to scroll the display down the list of assignments.

~Turn the knob counter-clockwise(CCW) to scroll the display up the list of assignments.

The display updates in real time whenever a new route is performed (when the TAKE button is pressed).

On the menu:

~Numbers on the lower OUTPUT STATUS line are fixed, and do not change. These numbers represent the 8 output channels.

~Numbers on the upper INPUT STATUS line show the input that is routed to the output listed directly below.

~The label “T” indicates that aTest Pattern is routed to the selected output.

~The label “B” indicates thatRGB Mute is enabled for the selected output.

~The label -indicates that the selected output is blanked. This output is inactive.

From the Main Menu, select EDID Setupto display the EDID Resolution Menu:

EDID RESOLUTION

Figure 4-12. MatrixPRO EDID Resolution Menu (sample)

The EDID Resolution Menu enables you to set MatrixPRO's preferred EDID resolution, either for all 8 inputs simultaneously, or individually for a particular input.

Important

This menu is designed for advanced users only. Do not

 

reprogram the EDID unless it is necessary.

 

 

EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) is a VESA standard data format that contains information about a display device and its capabilities, including the preferred (and the allowed) resolutions of the device. Please note:

By default, MatrixPRO is programmed to accept all VESA standard EDID resolutions from VGA through UXGA.

MatrixPRO’s EDID file is stored in non-volatilememory.

The EDID file is read by a computer's DVI graphics card when its DVI output is connected to any MatrixPRO input channel during the computer’s boot-upcycle.

MatrixPRO’s EDID information can be read with the power on or off.

Use the following steps to program EDID:

1.From the Main Menu, select EDID Setupto display the EDID Resolution Menu, a sample of which is shown below.

2.Scroll to line 2 (the “Input” line), and pressSEL to select either all inputs, or an individual input that you wish to program.

3.Scroll to line 3 (the “Format” line), which displays the current EDID resolution of the input selected on line2. PressSEL to display the edit cursor (#). Please note:

~If All is selected and all resolutions match, the “global” resolution is shown on the line.

~If All is selected and all resolutions do not match, the label “Not All Same” is shown.

~If an individual input is selected, its resolution is shown.

4.Rotate the ADJUST knob and select the preferred resolution.

Note

If you selected All, but all resolutions currently do not match,

 

you will overwrite all “differing” resolutions with a new “global”

 

resolution.

 

 

5.Press SEL to “accept” the new resolution, or pressESC to return to the current resolution without making changes. If you accept the new resolution, the message “Programming EDID ...” will appear.

Figure 4-13. MatrixPRO Cable Equalization Menu (sample)

The Cable Equalization Menu enables you to adjust input cable equalization parameters either for all 8 inputs simultaneously, or individually for a particular input. Please note:

The equalization adjustment range is from 0 (short cable equalization) to15 (long cable equalization).

The default value is 4 — configured for “moderate” equalization. In general, this value should be adequate for most users, unless cables longer than 6M are used, and unless your signals are running at high pixel clock rates (e.g., UXGA).

Equalization is a subjective “visual” adjustment, which depends on three important factors: cable length, signal quality and cable quality.

Use the following steps to adjust cable equalization:

1.Because equalization is adjusted for all inputs simultaneously, as a recommendation, use cables that are all the same length and quality.

2.Set up a route from a source to a destination. For example:

a.Connect a PC to a selected input.

b.Connect a monitor to a selected output.

c.Perform a “take” from the input to the output.

In the Output Selection Section, select the desired output.

In the Input Selection Section, choose the desired input.

Press TAKE.

d.Ensure that the selected source is visible on the monitor.

3.From the Main Menu, select Cable Equalto display the Cable Equalization Menu.

4.Scroll to line 2 (the “Input” line), and pressSEL to select either all inputs, or an individual input that you wish to program.

5.Scroll to line 3 (the “EQ” line), which displays the current equalization value of the input selected on line2. PressSEL to display the edit cursor (#). Please note:

~If All is selected and all equalization values match, the “global” value is shown on the line.
