Congratulations and thank you for buying the PureAV RazorVision Video Enhancement Cable. This easy-to-useproduct has been designed with your convenience in mind. It will allow you to quickly make adjustments that will bring your TV or projector’s video capabilities to life. RazorVision optimizes both standard andhigh-definitionvideo resolutions and supportscomputer-videoresolutions as well.

The PureAV RazorVision Cable processes the video signal coming from your source device and selectively enhances contrast and other picture elements to provide more depth to the images on your screen. Unlike the contrast control on your TV, which adjusts every pixel on your screen equally, regardless of what the image is, RazorVision uses proprietary hardware and software to analyze the image and intelligently apply change. The end result is more depth, more realism, and a highly improved viewing experience.

console. Insert the DC plug into the DC receptacle on the side

Important Notes on Operation


For the best effect, use RazorVision processing with HDTV,



or with source material (such as a DVD) that has been


up-convertedto either 720p or 1080i. Your TV display should





indicate the resolution you are watching when the source



connection is first made. You can also check this in your TV’s



video display settings. Consult your TV manufacturer’s user



manual on how to do this.

When connected to some TVs, the RazorVision Level LED will



blink continuously if the TV is powered off. Turning on the TV





causes the Level LED to stop blinking and remain continuously



on, indicating a good connection.

If the source device is powered off, the RazorVision Status LED




will blink for approximately 15 seconds; then, the RazorVision



will automatically go into sleep mode. To wake up the



RazorVision from sleep mode, power on the source device.



When the Status and Level lights are both continuously on, the



unit is ready for operation.

When the RazorVision is powered off, the device remembers




the last settings chosen by you and your picture will be



processed with those settings the next time you turn on



your equipment.


If your source device is an up-convertingDVD player with a DVI



or HDMI output, it should automatically choose the optimum



format and resolution for the TV. If it does not, or you wish



to pick a resolution other than the one your source device



chooses, you must adjust the resolution manually. This is done



either by pushing a button on the player or choosing an option



inside the player’s menu.


RazorVision is compliant with both the HDMI and HDCP



standards. It has been designed with Plug-and-Playsimplicity



and tested on a whole host of combinations of video products.

In the unlikely event the device fails to connect properly, please see the Troubleshooting section for tips to get you up and running quickly.

RazorVision features abuilt-inUSB port. This port is designed to make the unit easily serviceable if an issue cannot be first corrected via the Troubleshooting section of this User Manual. If you need to contact Belkin Technical Support, please provide the make and model number of your TV or projector and the source device you connected with the RazorVision Cable.
