INTRODUCTION

Congratulations on your purchase of the Extender for HDMI 1.3 Over One Fiber with IR. Your complete satisfaction is very important to us.

Gefen

Gefen delivers innovative, progressive computer and electronics add-onsolutions that harness integration, extension, distribution and conversion technologies. Gefen’s reliable,plug-and-playproducts supplementcross-platformcomputer systems, professional audio/video environments and HDTV systems of all sizes withhard-workingsolutions that are easy to implement and simple to operate.

The Gefen Extender for HDMI 1.3 Over One Fiber with IR

The Gefen Extender for HDMI 1.3 Over One Fiber with IR transmits 1080p Full HD in Deep Color and multi-channeldigital audio up to 1000 feet (330 meters) over asingle-strandSC fiber optic cable. Extraordinary distances can be achieved using thisfeature-richdevice.

1080p Full HD with Deep Color is instantaneously displayed at the remote location. This product also eliminates EMI (electromagnetic interference), picture cut-outsand screen distortions traditionally seen withcopper-basedHDMI extenders.

A multi-channeldigital audio experience is delivered with Dolby TrueHD andDTS-HDMaster Audio.

A single-strandSC fiber cable carries the IR back channel andbi-directionalRS232, facilitating convenient local control of the video source devices.

How It Works

Connect the Sender Unit to the high definition source using the provided HDMI cable. Connect the Receiver Unit to an HDTV display using another HDMI cable. Run a single strand of SC fiber optic cable from Sender Unit to the Receiver Unit. Power up both the Sender Unit and the Receiver Unit. A clean and vibrant HDMI A/V signal will appear on the display along with clear and crisp digital audio.

Send IR commands from the IR Remote Control back to A/V source equipment via the IR back channel using the fiber optic cable connecting the Sender Unit to the Receiver Unit. The Sender Unit has an IR blaster port, enabling wide IR signal coverage in an A/V equipment room.

In addition, RS-232commands from a home automation system or PC can be used to control the source device or any otherRS-232device using the ports on the Sender Unit and the Receiver Unit.

OPERATION NOTES

READ THESE NOTES BEFORE INSTALLING OR

OPERATING THE EXTENDER FOR HDMI 1.3 OVER ONE FIBER WITH IR

IR data repeater functionality is single-directional.IR data can only be transmitted from the Receiving unit back to the Sending unit. IR data cannot be transmitted from the Sending unit to the Receiving unit.

Use one SC-terminatedmulti-modefiber optic cable to operate the HDMI 1.3 Over One Fiber with IR.

1080p video may be extended up to 1000 feet (300m), depending on the type of fiber optic cable used. The following maximum extension distances will be possible depending on the types of fiber optic cabling that are used:

100m (330 ft) on 62.5/125 μm (OM1) multi-modeSC fiber

300m (1000 ft) on 50/125 μm (OM3) multi-modeSC fiber

RS-232data isbi-directionalfor direct commands and echo function or status information.

IMPORTANT CALIBRATION PROCEDURE

These steps must be followed when setting up the Gefen Extender for HDMI 1.3 over one Fiber with IR for the first time.

Connect the SC fiber optic cable between the Sender unit and the Receiver unit.

Set DIP switch 3 on both the Sender unit and the Receiver unit to the OFF position.

Apply power to the source and to both the Sender and Receiver units. The LED indicators on both the Sender unit and Receiver unit will alternate from red to green during the calibration process. The calibration process can take up to 120 seconds to complete.

After the calibration process has finished, the LED indicators on both the Sender unit and the Receiver unit will be solid green. Set DIP switch 3 to the ON position on both the Sender unit and the Receiver unit to lock the calibration settings.

NOTE: When changing fiber optic cables, the calibration procedure must be repeated. See page 11 for details on the calibration procedure.

DIP SWITCH CONFIGURATION

DIP Switches

On the bottom of the Sender Unit and Receiver Unit are a bank of four (4) DIP switches. These DIP switches provide control over EDID, Deep Color, and unit Calibration.

Remove the strip of tape to expose the DIP switches. To change the DIP switch settings, move the appropriate DIP switch to its ON or OFF position using a small pointed object. The DIP switches and their functions are shown below.

DIP SWITCH CONFIGURATION

DIP 1 - EDID Mode

OFF - Local EDID

When Local EDID mode is used, the EDID will be assembled by copying all video and audio features of the connected device. Deep Color support will be manually controlled: If Deep Color is supported by the display(s), DIP 2 should be set to the ON position (see DIP 2 - Deep Color, below). By default, the unit is shipped with DIP 1 in the OFF position.

ON - Pass-ThroughEDID

Allows all video and audio features of the connected devices to be passed to the source device without control over Deep Color.

DIP 2* - Deep Color

NOTE: DIP switch 2 is only functional when DIP switch 1 is set to the OFF position.

OFF - Enables Deep Color support (12-bitcolor)

Enables Deep Color support. In Pass-throughEDID Mode, setting DIP2 = OFF has no effect since all EDID information is passed through.

ON - Forces 8-bitColor

Disables Deep Color in the EDID. Deep Color management is only available when Local EDID is being used.

DIP 3 - Calibration Mode

OFF - Enables Calibration Mode

Enables Calibration Mode. Make sure to set DIP switch 3 on both the Sender Unit and Receiver Unit when calibrating the Extenders. See page 11 for details.

ON - Calibration Mode Lock

Locks the calibration settings. Set DIP switch 3 on both the Sender Unit and Receiver Unit to the ON position after the calibration process has completed. See page 11 for details on the calibration process.

DIP SWITCH CONFIGURATION

Calibrating the Sender Unit and Receiver Unit

IMPORTANT: Before beginning the calibration process, make sure that the Sender Unit and Receiver are not powered.

1.Make sure DIP switch 3 on both the Sender Unit and the Receiver Unit are in the OFF position (see page 9).

2.Connect one end of the fiber cable to the Sender Unit. Connect the other end of the fiber cable to the Receiver Unit.

3.Make sure DIP switch 3 on both the Sender Unit and the Receiver Unit are in the OFF position (see page 9).

4.Connect the 5V DC Locking Power Supplies to the Sender Unit and the Receiver Unit. Do not overtighten the locking connectors. Plug the power cord into an available electrical outlet.

The LED indicators on both the Sender Unit and Receiver Unit will alternate from red to green during the calibration process. The calibration process can take up to 120 seconds to complete.

After the calibration process has finished, the LED indicators on both the Sender unit and the Receiver unit will turn solid green. Set DIP switch 3 to the ON position on both the Sender Unit and the Receiver Unit to lock the calibration settings.

NOTE: If the fiber optic cable is changed, repeat the calibration procedure.

Troubleshooting Procedure

If the Sender Unit and Receiver Unit did not complete the calibration process, the indicator LEDs on both Sender Unit and Receiver Unit will be red. Check the fiber connections carefully and cycle the power on both the Sender Unit and the Receiver Unit and repeat the calibration procedure.

When the indicator LED at one unit is GREEN and the other is RED, cycle power on the unit with the RED indicator. It is also recommended to

cycle power on both the Sender Unit and the Receiver Unit to perform a full calibration.

If the calibration procedure continues to fail, contact Gefen Technical Support under the Asking For Assistance section at the beginning of this manual.
