Introduction

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.

continuously on, the RazorVision is ready.

you will see a picture. If this does not happen, go to the video

 

menu option of your display and change it to DVI or HDMI

Important Notes on Operation

 

For the best effect, use RazorVision processing with HDTV,

RazorVision

 

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

Video

 

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

 

 

 

 

causes the Level LED to stop blinking and remain continuously

Enhancement

 

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

Cable

 

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.
