A Word About HDCP
lîÉêîáÉï
PDS is a high-quality dual-channel presentation switcher designed to provide true
seamless switching between various input sources. The PDS-902 offers all the features of
the PDS-901, and it adds a scaled Preview mode that supports sizing and adjusting input
layers before taking them to Program. High-quality image scaling is maintained throughout.
PDS offers straightforward and simple operating modes, and is ideal for use in live events,
company boardrooms, hotel ballrooms, houses of worship, and in education and training
facilities. As the ideal “simple” presentation switcher to learn and operate,
PDS provides a full-screen output or PIP capability (with release 3.00 or higher).
PDS accepts analog, DVI, and HD-SDI input sources and converts them to a wide variety
of output formats. Output video is provided on analog and DVI connectors simultaneously.
PDS also allows you to capture and store up to three images to be used as full-screen
logos during the presentation.
Please note:

About the PDS
•
•
•
•
The PDS supports DVI, analog computer and video formats on the DVI-I inputs.
~
HDCP protocol is supported, and the PDS is considered an HDCP
repeater in this configuration. Incoming encrypted data is encrypted
going out, and all analog outputs, plus the freeze and LOGO store
functions are disabled when the PDS processes HDCP content. Refer to
the “A Word About HDCP” section on page 5 for more details.
~
1080i RGB input is supported on the DVI digital input.
A Preview mode lets you view and adjust layers before moving them to Program.
The PDS stores and recalls up to three full-screen logos.
The system provides true seamless switching between all inputs, including one of
the three stored full-screen logos.
•
An Auto Take feature (in the User Preference Menu) supports transitioning from
one input source to another without pressing TAKE.
•
The following scaling and de-interlacing features are provided:
~
~
~
~
10-bit 4:2:2 de-interlacer with diagonal filter
150 MHz maximum pixel rate
Low video delay: Interlaced sources, 3 fields (max)
•
The PDS provides the ability to “auto acquire” input sources. The system monitors
inputs at all times, and if a timing change occurs, the system automatically
reacquires and displays the source — once the timing has been measured.
•
The PDS offers simple and intuitive menus:
~
4
10-bit scaling
Presentations can be switched without accessing any setup menus.
•
Two front-panel lockout modes enable you to lock out menu access, either
completely or partially.The PDS provides an integrated test pattern generator.
•
•
The PDS offers an HD/SD/3G SDI input as standard.
•
The File Association feature provides the ability to save and recall up to 64 input
configuration files, and associate each of them with one or more inputs.
A built-in web-based GUI enables you to perform all setup and transition
functions, just like the front panel.

About the PDS
^=tçêÇ=^Äçìí=ea`m
The PDS supports High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP), an industry-wide
content protection system designed to prevent illegal copying of digital audio and video
content across interfaces such as DisplayPort (DP), High-Definition Multimedia Interface
(HDMI), and Digital Visual Interface (DVI). HDCP prevents the display of encrypted content
on devices that do not support content protection.
The HDCP format was designed by Intel® Corporation, and it uses an “authentication and
key exchange” procedure to accomplish the required protection. For proper
implementation, products that are compatible with the HDCP format require a secure
connection to a compliant display, such as a projector or monitor.
When an HDCP-compliant display is connected to the PDS, an HDCP “session” is created.
In this session (which is transparent to the user), “keys” are exchanged between the source
device (e.g., a Blu-Ray player) and the HDCP-compliant display. The source device queries
the display to ensure that the equipment is HDCP compliant before video is displayed.
Non-HDCP equipment such as a PC will work with any DVI-compliant display, but HDCPcompliant equipment shows protected content only on HDCP-compliant displays.
With the HDCP option enabled, the PDS accepts encrypted content from an external
source, decrypts the signal for internal processing such as scaling or color balance, then
re-encrypts the output video for display. During this process, all PDS output connectors that
are not HDCP-compliant are turned off, when the protected content is selected to be shown
on those outputs. In addition, if a non-HDCP compliant monitor is connected to the DVI
Program output, Preview will show Black for an HDCP source regardless of the HDCP
capability of the DVI monitor connected to the Preview output. This is to maintain the true
"look-ahead" preview functionality of the PDS.
This feature is available on the PDS DVI input and output connections.
Please note the following important points:
•
PDS • User’s Guide
You can turn the HDCP option on or off. If the option is turned off and the signal is
encrypted, the PDS does not send the signal to the output device.

p~ÑÉíó=mêÉÅ~ìíáçåë=
For all PDS installation procedures, observe the following important safety and handling
rules to avoid damage to yourself and the equipment:
•
To protect users from electric shock, ensure that the power supplies for each unit
connect to earth via the ground wire provided in the AC power cord.
•
The AC Socket-outlet should be installed near the equipment and be easily
accessible.
råé~ÅâáåÖ=~åÇ=fåëéÉÅíáçå=
Before opening the PDS shipping box, inspect it for damage. If you find any damage, notify
the shipping carrier immediately for all claims adjustments. As you open the box, compare
its contents against the packing slip. If you find any shortages, contact your sales
representative.
The PDS shipping box contains the PDS unit, a power cord, and a CD. Once you have
removed all the components from their packaging and checked that all the components are
present, visually inspect the unit to ensure there was no damage during shipping. If there is
damage, notify the shipping carrier immediately for all claims adjustments.
páíÉ=mêÉé~ê~íáçå=
The environment in which you install your PDS should be clean, properly lit, free from
static, and have adequate power, ventilation, and space for all components.
o~ÅâJjçìåí=fåëí~ää~íáçå
The PDS chassis is designed to be rack mounted and is supplied with front rack-mount
hardware.
Note
The PDS chassis can also be used in a “tabletop”
configuration, without rack mounting.
When rack mounting the PDS chassis, remember the following important points:
18
•
•
Maximum ambient operating temperature for the unit is 40 degrees C.
•
When installing multiple units into a rack, distribute them evenly to prevent
hazardous conditions that may be created by uneven weight distribution.
Leave at least one inch of space (front and rear) to ensure that the airflow through
the fan and vent holes is not restricted.
PDS • User’s Guide
3. Installation
Cable and Adapter Information
•
Rack mount each PDS chassis from the front rack ears using four rack screws
(not supplied). Rack threads may be metric or otherwise — depending upon the
rack type.

The top line names the current menu, in all capital letters.
Subsequent lines typically display two fields:
~
For a listed function, the left-hand field names the function, and the
right-hand field is the function’s current parameter or value.
~
For a listed sub-menu, the left-hand field names the sub-menu that you
can access, and the right-hand field displays the double arrow (>>),
indicating that a sub-menu is available.
•
The “navigation” cursor (>) in the left-hand column indicates the current line on
which action can be taken. This arrow “scrolls” as you rotate the knob.
•

~
~
•
Turn the ADJUST knob counter-clockwise (CCW) to scroll down.
Turn the ADJUST knob clockwise (CW) to scroll up.
To enter a sub-menu, scroll to the desired line and press SEL.
Note
Throughout this chapter, the term “select” is used as an
abbreviation for “scroll to a menu line and press SEL.”
 Select the Input field to...
•
To change a parameter, scroll to the desired line and press SEL. The cursor
changes to the “edit” cursor (#). Use the ADJUST knob to modify the value:
~

The Auto Acquire field is only adjustable between ON and OFF when Auto Acquire is set
to INPUT in the User Preference Menu (refer to the “User Preference Menu” section on
page 60).
When Auto Acquire is ON, and an input has a saved configuration file, the system
attempts to use the saved file. If the input timing matches the timing in the saved
configuration file, the saved file is used.
The system always performs a full sync (timing) acquisition on the selected input signal
under the following conditions:
•
•
•
•
When an input without a saved configuration file is selected
When the input type is changed
When the input signal’s sync rate is changed
When an input with a saved configuration file is selected, but the input timing is
different from the saved configuration
When Auto Acquire is ON, and the input source is non-digital, the system uses the
following library search order:
•
Saved configuration files defined in the File Association Menu for each input
channel
•
•
The user’s library of saved files

When Auto Acquire is ON, and the input source is digital, the system uses the following

Direct measurement of the signal
If the input signal’s timing is too different from the saved configuration, a good lock may not
be possible. In this situation, the “Invalid Signal” message is displayed, and the video
output will be black. You will also see “Invalid Signal” if the configuration file for an input
has been deleted.
When Auto Acquire is OFF, dial in your timing parameters manually.
Please note the following important points:
•
It is recommended that you leave the Auto Acquire mode ON. Then, if the timing
changes on any input (whether or not you have a saved config file), you will
always get an output image. On the other hand, if the mode is OFF and the input
timing changes, the output will be black.
•
When the Auto Acquire mode is ON, the PDS automatically detects and acquires
the input video type and resolution (in most cases), and limits menu selections to
those applicable to the detected video type.
•
If you are an advanced user and you know the exact timing parameters for your
input(s), you can turn the Auto Acquire mode OFF, and dial in your timing
parameters manually.
Tip
If you have already saved configuration files for your inputs, it
is recommended that you turn the Auto Acquire mode OFF.
This provides the fastest transition times. When the mode is
ON, transition times will be greater, due to the time required
to analyze the input timing for each source.

position it within the selected aspect ratio. The full-screen nature of the final
output will be maintained.
~
Select H Size to size both the left and right edges simultaneously,
removing unwanted left/right input edge pixels from the output “window”.
Values are in pixels. The output “window” is maintained in both size and

Select V Size to size both the top and bottom edges simultaneously,
removing unwanted top/bottom input edge pixels from the output
“window”. Values are in lines. The output “window” is maintained in both

Note
For both H Size and V Size, the function always cuts into the
visible image, equally on both sides, and never exposes
video outside the source’s active area. As you size, the
PDS scales the input up to fit the selected aspect ratio.
Note
The maximum allowable H/V size is up to 33% of the input's
corresponding active area. For example, for a 1280x1024
input, the maximum H Size is 422 and the maximum V Size
is 336.

The following functions are available:
•
•
Sampling — Select this function to change the sampling for the selected input.
Available values are: Off and On (default). Please note:
~
When 1:1 Sample is On, the system provides pixel-for-pixel sampling,
and generally better image quality.
~
When 1:1 Sample is Off, the system performs multiple samples for
every pixel, with a resulting “softer” image.
~
1:1 Sample can only be changed for RGB and YPbPr analog inputs,
except analog NTSC or PAL formats.
~
All other input types have defined sample clocks that are inherently 1:1.
If the input is set to one of the other types, the value is [On].
Phase A, Phase B — These two selections are advanced features which enable
you to adjust the sample phase of the system’s two scalers. Typically, they do not
need to be adjusted. Refer to the “Adjusting Sample Phase” section on page 45
for instructions.
The six “Total/Position/Active” values are initially filled in by the Auto Config command,
or set to their default values. You can adjust values for Analog RGB or YPbPr sources only.
Digital and decoded sources show values in brackets.
Please note:

Sync Selection — This function applies only to Analog RGB inputs. The
PDS automatically selects the syncs for digital sources, composite, S-video, and
YPbPr inputs. For these inputs, the value field indicates [N/A].
The sync choices are Auto, H/V (horizontal/vertical sync), CSync (composite
sync) and SOG (sync on green).

The default selection for Analog RGB inputs is Auto.
Pulldown Compensation — This function only applies to standard video
(component, s-video, composite and SD/HD SDI) inputs. The mode, which

The PDS supports saving up to 64 input configuration files in non-volatile memory, each of
which is available to the nine physical inputs (1 through 8 and SDI).
Input configuration files contain settings that govern everything from pixel resolution to
aspect ratio and color balance — any setting you can view or change using the Input
Menu. By default, an input’s configuration file number is the same as the number of the
input — Input 1 is assigned to configuration file number 1, and so on. You can set, delete,
save, or recall the configuration file for an input. You can associate any number of saved
files to any number of inputs.
When you change the configuration file for an input, the timing in the new configuration file
must match the input’s timing. For example, if the input uses NTSC (720 x 480) timing, that
input cannot use a configuration file that uses WXGA (1280 X 768).
When you delete user-defined configuration files, those files are no longer available for use
by any input.

After you use the Input Menu to change one or more input settings, you can save the
changes to non-volatile memory by selecting Save Config. You can save the changes to
the current configuration file for the selected input, or to a different file.

After you select a file number and choose Recall File, press SEL to initiate the recall or
ESC to continue using the current configuration.
When you press SEL, if the input timing matches the timing in the recalled input
configuration file, the input uses the recalled configuration file immediately. The File
Association Menu is also updated to reflect your change.
If the input and configuration file timings do not match and Auto Acquire is ON, an “auto
acquire” will be performed. For more information about this function, refer to the “Using
Auto Acquire” section on page 79.

From the Input Menu, select Delete Config to delete any saved configuration file. A
deleted configuration file cannot be recalled by any input.
After you delete a configuration file, what happens the next time you select an input that
uses the file depends on whether Auto Acquire is ON (in the User Preference Menu).
When Auto Acquire is ON and an input does not have a saved configuration file, the PDS
does a full sync (timing) acquisition on the selected input signal.
When Auto Acquire is OFF, the system will use the configuration file defined in the File
Association Menu, to the greatest extent possible. If the input does not have a saved
configuration file, the PDS displays the “Invalid Signal” message and the video output is
black.
For more information about Auto Acquire, refer to the “Using Auto Acquire” section on

When an input without a saved configuration file is selected
When the input type is changed
When the input signal’s sync rate is changed
When an input with a saved configuration file is selected, but the input timing is

Please note the following important points:
•
PDS • User’s Guide
It is recommended that you leave the Auto Acquire mode ALL ON. Then, if the
timing changes on any input (whether or not you have a saved config file), you will
always get an output image. On the other hand, if the mode is ALLOFF and the
input timing changes, the output will be black.

When the Auto Acquire mode is ALL ON, the PDS automatically detects and
acquires the input video type and resolution (in most cases), and limits menu
selections to those applicable to the detected video type.
•
If you are an advanced user and you know the exact timing parameters for your
input(s), you can turn the Auto Acquire mode ALLOFF, and dial in your timing
parameters manually.
If you have already saved configuration files for your inputs, it
is recommended that you turn the Auto Acquire mode
ALLOFF. This provides the fastest transition times. When
the mode is ALL ON, transition times will be greater, due to
the time required to analyze the input timing for each source.

Important
This menu is designed for advanced users only. Do not
reprogram EDID unless it is necessary.
EDID is a VESA standard data format that contains information about a display device and
its capabilities, including the preferred (as well as the allowed) device resolutions.
The PDS’s EDID file is stored in non-volatile memory. This file is read by a computer's DVI
graphics card during boot-up, when its DVI output is connected to a DVI-I input connector
on the PDS system. The PDS must be powered on first for the EDID information to be read.
The following functions are available:
•
•
Input — selects the inputs that you wish to program: ALL, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8.
EDID Format — displays the current EDID format, and enables you to select a
new format to program into memory. Press SEL to program the preferred DVI
resolution, as defined on the EDID Format line.

Note
•
Inputs 5 through 8 do not need to be selected on the front
panel for this menu to change, and to apply the equalization
settings.
Equalization — The equalization adjustment range is from 0 (short cable
equalization) to 15 (long cable equalization). The default value is 12, which
indicates “moderate” equalization.
In general, the default should be adequate for most users, unless cables longer
than 5M are used, and unless your signals are running at high pixel clock rates
(e.g., UXGA).
•
Set to Default — sets the Equalization field to the default setting of 12.
Note
•
•
Equalization is a subjective “visual” adjustment, which
depends on three important factors: cable length, signal
quality and cable quality. If you adjust the equalization,
optimize the setting for the lowest amount of visual artifacts.
Set to Maximum — sets the Equalization field to the maximum setting of 15.
Set to Minimum — sets the Equalization field to the minimum setting of 0.

rëáåÖ=^ìíç=^ÅèìáêÉ
Please note the following important points regarding the Auto Acquire mode:
•
If Auto Acquire is ON and a valid input is selected that does not have a saved
Input Config file associated with it, the system attempts to acquire the source and
save an Input Config file. This process may take a few moments.
Note
The Input Config file will only be saved if the "Auto Input
Save" mode is ON in the User Preference Menu.
•
If an input is selected that does have a saved Input Config file associated with it,
the (blinking) source will transition to program after TAKE is pressed.
•
When the system performs an Auto Acquire for Inputs 5 through 8, the PDS first
checks for a DVI signal. If not found, the system looks for a valid analog signal.
•
If Auto Acquire is OFF and a valid input is selected (either with or without a
saved Input Config file), the system compares the library file to the input’s
incoming timing.
~
If the timings match, the system transitions to the input after TAKE is
pressed.
~
If the timings do not match, the “Invalid Signal” message appears, and
the system transitions to black after TAKE is pressed.

rëáåÖ=íÜÉ=içÖç
A logo is a full-screen video source which, when transitioned to Program, appears on top
of all other sources. The PDS can store up to three logos in non-volatile memory.
The PDS enables you to transition to or from a full-screen logo, in the same way that you

selected logo to or from Program at the current transition rate, and the sources flip-flop in
the manner described in the “Flip-flop Mode” section on page 78.
Please note the following important points:
•
A logo will be labeled INVALID if it was captured at a resolution that does not
match the current output resolution The resolution at which it was captured will
also be displayed — e.g., [INVALID 1600x1200].

 To connect a PDS to an Encore or ScreenPRO-II Controller, use the following
procedure:
1.
On the Ethernet Submenu, enable DHCP mode and obtain an IP address for the
Encore Controller.
2.
On the Ethernet Submenu, select Remote Control. The Barco Remote Control
Submenu appears, as shown in the preceding illustration.
3.
The Unit ID defaults to 25. To change this setting, select Unit ID and scroll to
another number. Select an ID that is not being used by other devices.
4.
In the IP field, scroll through the four fields to enter the IP address of the
appropriate controller. When you select IP, the last character in the first field
becomes available. Turn the ADJUST knob to change the value.
As you continue turning the knob, you can change all three values in this field.
Values range from 000 to 255 in all four fields.
Note
The default IP address of the Encore Controller is
192.168.0.1.
The default IP address of the ScreenPRO-II Controller is
192.168.0.2.
5.
Press SEL to accept your change in the first field. The last character in the next
field becomes available.
6.
Continue until you have entered the IP address you want. Press SEL again.
7.
In the Connect field, select ON. The following message appears:

When the connection is established, a confirmation message appears.
`çããìåáÅ~íáåÖ=ïáíÜ=map
 Use the following steps to communicate with the PDS via Telnet:
1.
Connect the PDS’s Ethernet port to an Ethernet switch, and connect the switch to
your PC or laptop.
2.
Ensure that all Ethernet parameters are properly set up. In Chapter 4, refer to the
“Ethernet” section on page 66 for details.
3.
For Telnet communications, use the PDS’s IP address and port 23. On a Microsoft
Windows® PC, open a command prompt window and enter the following:
> telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
23
To login via Ethernet without requiring a user name or password, telnet to port
3000. Example:
> telnet 192.168.0.10 3000
4.
After you “Telnet” into the PDS, you are presented with the login prompt:
Welcome to PDS.
Login as “user”.
Press <ENTER> for password.
a.
Type “user” and press ENTER to login.
b.
When prompted for a password, press ENTER.
Once you have successfully logged in, the following message appears, along with
the command prompt (>):
ShellApp waiting for input
>
5.
You can now issue commands. Operationally, the telnet window functions in a
manner similar to a serial communications session. As required, type "help" to
see a list of supported commands.
Refer to the “Remote Commands” section on page 139 for a complete list of commands.

_K==oÉãçíÉ=`çåíêçä
Command Protocol
`çãã~åÇ=mêçíçÅçä
The PDS’s command protocol is compatible with GNU getopt parsing. Every parameter of
the command has an option character associated with it. A <CR> carriage return (ASCII
13) terminates the command.
The order of the option characters in the command does not
matter.
Note
 Command example:
ITYPE -i 2 -t 1<CR>
Or
ITYPE -t 1 -i 2<CR>
`çãã~åÇ=oÉëéçåëÉë
A command response is sent after each command is processed. This response consists of
the command, followed by the error code, a line feed <LF> and a special termination
character (\x4).
•
When a command is successful, the error code is a 0 (eERR_OK), or some
positive value.
•
When a command is not successful, the error code is a negative value. A
preliminary list of the error codes is included. Refer to the “Error Codes” section
on page 134 for details.
 Command response example:
ITYPE -e 0<LF>
</x4>
nìÉêó=léíáçåë
Query type options are available for the commands. The order of precedence for
processing query option arguments is help (--help), query (-?), and list (--list). If more than
one query option is sent in a command, the option with the highest precedence is
processed, and any others are ignored.
Help Query — Commands have a “help” query option associated with them, (--help). This
query lists all option flags and parameters for the command in the following format:
 Help option example:
IBRT --help<CR>
 Response:
f_oq

•
Parameters:
-i(input): Input number, 1-8
-b(bright): 75.0%-125.0%
•
•
Query Format: IBRT i(input) -?
Query Response: IBRT i(input) b(bright) --min 75 --max 125
IBRT -e 0 <LF>
</x4>
Current Setting Query — The current setting query option (-?) returns the command with
each of the current parameter settings. Commands with minimum and maximum settings
for the parameter will have these “min” and “max” values returned with option flags --min
and --max.
 Query option example:
IBRT -i 4 -?<CR>
 Response:
IBRT -i 4 -b 100.00 --min 75 --max 125
IBRT -e 0<LF>
</x4>
Several commands have a list for the associated valid parameter values, such as the
format commands. The list of these values can be queried with the list query option (--list).
The list shows has the numeric value for the parameter, followed by the value text encased
in quotes. A colon separates the numeric value from the string.
 List query option example:
ISMP -i 4 --list<CR>
 Response:
0:"OverSample"
1:"1:1"
ISMP -e 0<LF>
