How It Works
Using the included HDMI cables, connect up to four Hi-Def sources to the HDMI inputs on the switcher/scaler. Connect an HDTV display to the output of the unit using an HDMI cable. To use the built-in web server, Telnet, or UDP capability to configure windows, switch inputs, and control other features of the switcher/scaler, connect an Ethernet cable from your Local Area Network to the IP Control port. To control the unit via RS-232, connect the included DB-9 cable from an Automation Control device to the unit. If IR control is required and the unit is not installed in line of sight, connect the included EXT-RMT-EXTIRN IR Extender to the IR Ext port on the back of the unit. Connect the included locking power supply to the unit and to an available electrical outlet. Power up the switcher/scaler, the sources, and the display.
