Following are descriptions of each section on the Video Switching Tab:

1)Inputs Section

The Inputs Section provides numbered buttons with black digits for all “active” input crosspoints. All other input buttons are grayed out.

Please note:

~If you have configured mnemonics on the Labeling Tab, the selected names will appear on the appropriate input buttons.

~Unselected input buttons are gray. Selected input buttons are yellow.

5. GUI Installation and Operation

Using the Video Switching Tab

The following additional controls are provided:

~At the bottom of the Inputs Section, clickTAKE to complete a route.

~Click Cancel to cancel a pending route.

2)Outputs Section

The Outputs Section provides numbered buttons with black digits for all “active” output crosspoints. All other output buttons are grayed out. Please note:

~If you have configured mnemonics on the Labeling Tab, the selected names will appear on the appropriate output buttons.

~Unselected output buttons are gray. Selected output buttons are yellow.

~If you select an output button and certain input buttons are grayed out, it may indicate that a “group” has been configured, which restricts the number of available inputs.

~In the Video column, “color” indicates status:

A number within a bright green square indicates an active route.

SThe number 7 in a bright green square adjacent to output button1 indicates that input7 is routed to output1.

A number within a bright red square indicates a pending route.

SThe number 4 in a bright red square adjacent to output button8 indicates that the “input4 to output8” route is pending — andTAKE must be pressed.

~In the Video column,--indicates that the adjacent output is clear, or “blanked.”

~In the RGB Mute column, a checked box indicates that the adjacent output channel is muted.

Note

A TAKE is not required to perform an RGB Mute route.

 

 

The following additional controls are provided:

~At the bottom of the Inputs Section, clickRead from MatrixPRO to update the GUI with the current state of the physical MatrixPRO chassis. This control is identical to the function listed in theSerial Port Menu.

~Click Clear All Routing to clear all input and output routes, and “blank” all outputs. Status will read--for all outputs. A “take” is not required.

3)Presets Section

The Presets Section provides buttons that enable you to save and recall the router’s current state (all input and output routes) to/from one of eight “configuration” files. Refer to the “Saving Presets” section onpage 68 and the “Recalling Presets” section onpage 69 for instructions.

5. GUI Installation and Operation

Using the Video Switching Tab

mЙкСзкгбеЦ=~=q~вЙ

On the Video Switching Tab, use the following steps to perform a take:

1.In the Outputs Section, click the output to which you want to route an input. The output button turns yellow.

Note

If an input is already associated with that output, the input

 

number will appear within a bright green box in the Video

 

column. If there is no input associated with the output, the

 

output is “blanked” and the label --is shown.

 

 

2.In the Inputs Section, click the desired input source. The selected input button turns yellow, and its number appears in a bright red box in theVideo column — adjacent to the selected output.

3.In the Inputs Section, clickTAKE. The selected input number appears in a bright green box in theVideo column — indicating an active route.

Note

When the route is completed, the Status Menu (if visible) and

 

the appropriate input/output buttons on the physical

 

MatrixPRO panel update accordingly.

 

 

4. Repeat from step1 to perform another take. Please note the following important points:

To cancel a route before pressingTAKE, click theCancel button in theInputs Section, or click the selected input button to“de-select”it. The previous route remains in effect.

A “pending” route remains pending — even if you click a different output — until TAKE orCancel is pressed. The bright red square always indicates a pending route.

This procedure enables you to perform multiple input-to-outputroutes with one “take.”

On the Video Switching Tab, use the following steps to perform amulti-take:

1.In the Outputs Section, click the output to which you want to route an input. The output button turns yellow.

2.In the Inputs Section, click the desired input source. The selected input button turns yellow, and its number appears in a bright red box in theVideo column — adjacent to the selected output.

3.Repeat steps 1 and2 for as manyinput-to-outputroutes as desired.

4.In the Inputs Section, clickTAKE. The selected input numbers appear in bright green boxes in theVideo column — indicating active routes.

5.Repeat from step 1 to perform anothermulti-take.

The “clear” procedure enables you to clear (or “blank”) a route.

On the Video Switching Tab, use the following steps to clear a route:

1.In the Outputs Section, click the output channel that you want to clear. The button lights yellow along with its currently assigned input.

2.In the Inputs Section, click the currently assigned input button. In the video column, the label--appears in a red squared, indicating that a “blank” route is pending.

3.Click TAKE. The selected input button turns off, indicating that the input has been cleared and the output channel has been blanked.

Note

You can perform a “multi-clear”in the same manner as you

 

performed a multi-take.

The RGB Mute feature enables you to blank a channel’s output video while leaving the channel’s sync signals running to the monitor.

On the Video Switching Tab, use the following steps to “mute” an output:

1.Verify that an active route is in place (based on a bright green square in the Video column) for the selected output.

2.In the Outputs Section, enable the check box in theRGB Mute column for the output that you wish to mute. The channel is immediately muted — pressingTAKE isnot required.

3.Repeat from step 1 to mute another output channel.

Please note the following important points:

To clear an RGB Mute route, simply disable the check box.

The router’s current state (all input and output routes) can be saved to one of eight presets (or “configuration” files). For example, you can save a preset in which all outputs are “blanked,” or a configuration in which input 1 is routed to all outputs.

On the Video Switching Tab, use the following steps to save a preset:1. In thePresets Section, clickSave to reveal the 8 preset buttons.

Figure 5-13. Presets Section — Save pending

2.Ensure that the router’s input/output status is configured the exactly as you want. The status of all current routes will be saved.

3.In the Presets Section, click the button for the preset into which you want to save the configuration. The section will automatically hide to confirm the “save.”

A stored “preset” (configuration file) containing all input and output routes can be recalled from memory and applied instantly to the router’s current state. For example, you can recall a configuration in which all outputs are “blanked,” or a configuration in which input 4 is routed to all outputs.

On the Video Switching Tab, use the following steps to recall a preset:1. In thePresets Section, clickRecall to reveal the 8 preset buttons.

Figure 5-14. Presets Section — Save pending

Note that “empty” presets are grayed out.

2.Click the button for the preset that you want to recall. The pending preset route is immediately recalled to the panel, as indicated by the bright red squares (and associated input digits) adjacent to all output buttons.

3.Click TAKE orConfirm to complete the route.

Note

You can click Cancel to cancel the procedure, prior to clicking

 

TAKE.
