5. GUI Installation and Operation

Using the Labeling Tab

rлбеЦ=нЬЙ=i~ДЙдбеЦ=q~Д

The Labeling Tab enables you to create mnemonic labels for inputs, outputs, groups and presets. Once created, the labels appear on the buttons in the appropriate GUI sections.

Figure 5-15. Labeling Tab (sample)

Please note:

Labels can be up to 6 characters in length. Labels can include a mix of letters and numbers.

Cells for which there is no associated input or output are grayed out.

To work with labels:

1.To create a label, click in the desired cell and type. You do not have to press Enter for the label to take effect.

2.To clear an individual label, click in the desired cell and re-type.

3.To clear all labels in a particular group, click the group’s associated Reset button.

5. GUI Installation and Operation

Using the Grouping Tab

rлбеЦ=нЬЙ=dкзмйбеЦ=q~Д

The Grouping Tab enables you to set up groups of input and output channels, in order to prevent certain inputs from being switched to selected outputs. Once established, routes can only be performed within the group.

Figure 5-16. Grouping Tab (sample)

The Grouping Tab includes columns for inputs, outputs, group “selection” and a column that indicates existing groups. The following rules apply:

A minimum of two inputs and two outputs are required to form a group, but up to 8 can be included in a group.

Multiple groups can be configured on the GUI (e.g., 2 groups of 4 outputs each).

Inputs and outputs can only be in one group at a time. Unavailable inputs and outputs are grayed out.

When an output within a group is selected, you can only route the inputs currently assigned to that group. Inputs “outside” the group cannot be selected.

5. GUI Installation and Operation

Using the Grouping Tab

To check the “members” of a group, click a group in the Group column. All assigned group input and output buttons will light in yellow. If no buttons light, that group is not configured.

Note

Grouping of inputs and outputs does not establish a route.

 

The input source for a particular output still must be

 

established using the standard “take” procedure on the Video

 

Switching Tab.

 

 

Use the following steps to create an input/output group:

1.In the Group column, click the radio button for the group that you wish to create.

2.In the Output column, click the button(s) for the output(s) that you want to be in the group. Each selected output button turns yellow.

3.In the Input column, click the button(s) for the input(s) that you want to be in the group. Each selected input button turns yellow.

4.Repeat from step 1 to configure additional groups. Note that once an input or output is included in a group, it is grayed out.

Use the following steps to add an input or output to an existing group:

1.In the Group column, click the radio button for the group that you want to modify.

2.In the Output column, click the button(s) for the output(s) that you want to add to the group. Each selected button turns yellow.

3.In the Input column, click the button(s) for the input(s) that you want to add to the group. Each selected button turns yellow.

4.Repeat from step 1 to add inputs or outputs to additional groups.

Use the following steps to remove an input or output from an existing group:

1.In the Group column, click the radio button for the group that you want to modify.

2.In the Output column, click the button(s) for the output(s) that you want to remove from the group. Each selected button turns off.

3.In the Input column, click the button(s) for the input(s) that you want to remove from the group. Each selected button turns off.

4.Repeat from step 1 to remove inputs or outputs from additional groups.

Use the following steps to completely remove (clear) an existing group:

1.In the Group column, click the radio button for the group that you want to remove.

2.Click Remove Group.

Use the following steps to remove all groups:

1.Click Remove All Group.

5. GUI Installation and Operation

Using the Sequencing Tab

rлбеЦ=нЬЙ=pЙимЙеЕбеЦ=q~Д

The Sequencing Tab enables you to cycle through a sequence of presets.

Figure 5-17. Sequencing Tab (sample)

This functionality also allows for a variable delay time (in seconds), during which time the system waits until it recalls the next preset in sequence. Delay time ranges from 3 to 9999 seconds, and the default delay is 3 seconds. Please note:

The Presets Section (identical to that on theVideo Switching Tab), is included on this tab — enabling you to check which preset registers are valid or empty. Refer to the “Saving Presets” section onpage 68 and the “Recalling Presets” section onpage 69 for details.

In the Preset Sequence section, enabling the “On” check box adjacent to a preset includes that preset in the sequence.

Sequence can be started and stopped by clicking on the Start andStop buttons, respectively. When you start a sequence, it will always loop untilStop is clicked.

Use the following steps to create a sequence:

1.Ensure that you have saved the desired presets.

2.Enable the “On” check boxes for the presets that you wish to include in the sequence.

5. GUI Installation and Operation

Using the Sequencing Tab

3.In the Delay column, set the desired delay interval for each enabled preset — from 3 to 9999 seconds.

4.Click Start to begin the sequence. “Active” presets are indicated by the bright green square adjacent to the sequence number. Please note:

~The sequence loops back to the first enabled preset, when the last preset in the sequence is reached.

~As the sequence plays, you can click the Video Switching Tab and watch the input assignments change.

5.To stop sequence playback, click Stop on theSequencing Tab.
