INTRODUCTION
1-1. THE PLS200 OPERATING MODE
This mode allows for a single Pulse LE to seamlessly switch and blend any of its 10 analog/digital inputs
with any other of the inputs, add PIP or titling insertion on the live frame, while previewing your every move
before going live. The Mixer mode is the Pulse LE native mode, and will display up to 4 layers (of which 2
live layers).
* NOTE * : W
e recommend resetting the device to its default values every time you set up your shows or
events.
1-2. USEFUL TERMS AND DEFINITIONS
BACKGROUND: a “Background” is a source, typically originating from a computer. Pulse LE enables you to
work with live or still (frame) background sources - visually in back of all other sources.
LAYER: a “Layer” is an image display element (such as a PIP, Key, Logos or Background) that has an
associated visual priority — either in front (or in back) of another layer.
The Pulse LE can simultaneously view no less than 4 layers (2 video, or live layers, 1 frame layer, or
background, and 2 logo layers).
Pulse LE can insert up to 1 PIPs on a live background.
PIP: a “PIP” (Picture In Picture), is a picture, typically of reduced size, which is positioned over another
background image or PIP. PIPs can be reduced, enlarged, bordered and shadowed. PIPs can overlap,
depending on their visual priority.
Pulse LE allows for Dynamic PIP on the opening and closing of the sequence, vertically or horizontally.
KEYING: a “Key” is an electronic process whereby an image is electronically superimposed over another
source or background, by cutting out either a color (chroma key), or its brightness or luminance levels (luma
key). Keys are typically used for titles, logos and special effects.
Pulse LE allows to use a live source with green or blue background and to key it over any other live input.

HDCP compliance
If you want to use HDCP (High Definition Copy Protection) content from your sources, be sure pluging HDCP
compliant screens or projectors. If it’s not the case, the output image could be disabled.
When displaying HDCP protected sources on non HDCP compliant equipment, the following message will be
displayed on the device VFD screen:
“Due to HDCP content, non HDCP screens cannot display protected sources”
Screen will go to black without displaying the HDCP input image, or partially layer out non HDCP content.
Concerning the DVI inputs, a specific feature allows enable/disable the HDCP receiver for the input chosen.
It can be very useful especially using a Mac:
Input Menu > DVI# > HDCP detection
The output status can provide you all information about the output in real time.
This feature is particularly needed when HDCP is used with long cable to be sure that the communication is
well handled.

information are separately transmitted, gives a higher quality picture
than the Composite video signal. The S.VIDEO connector is usually
a 4 pin Mini-DIN connector also called Oshiden™ connector.
For inputs #1-#4: connect a 2 x BNC from your S.VIDEO,
Y (G/Y) & C (R/R-Y), to the HD15 input of the device.
COMPONENT VIDEO SOURCES:
The Component Video signal, also called YUV (Y, Pr, Pb) or
BETACAM™ is widely used in broadcasting and is available on
high-quality DVD players. The COMPONENT signal is transmitted
with 3 coaxial cables, and also has a better quality picture than
COMPOSITE and S.VIDEO signals. The COMPONENT connectors
are usually RCA (x3), or BNC (x3).For inputs #1 to #4: connect a
HD15 to 3 x BNC cable between the HD15 connector of the device
and your Component source.
21
RGBS VIDEO SOURCES:
This signal is widely used in broadcasting and is available on
European DVD player. The RGB/S signal is transmitted with 4 coaxial
cables, and also has a better picture quality than COMPOSITE
and S.VIDEO signals. The RGB/S connectors are usually BNC
connectors for Broadcasting equipment, and SCART connector for
DVD players.
For inputs #1 to #5 and #8: connect a HD15 to 4 x BNC cable
between the HD15 connector of the device and your RGB/S source.
DVI Inputs #1 & #2

REMOTE CONTROL SOFTWARE
5-1. THE PULSE LE RCS
RCS presentation
Your Pulse LE is shipped with a Windows compatible control software. The RCS software allows you to
control your PLS200 in exactly the same way as with the front panel of the device, only using your PC as a
remote.
How to use the RCS ?
You have to install the software on a Computer and have a LAN board or RS-232 link to use the RCS. After
the installation, launch the program and proceed to the network establishment.
Software installation
1. Connect you on www.analogway.com.
2. In the menu, select [Technical Support] menu, then click on [Remote Control Software], select the name
of your device and click on [Download].
3. Click on [Open with] or [Register the file], select the .exe file.
4. Follow the Windows installation instructions.
40
Software overview
The RCS software for your Pulse LE is composed of several easily identified sections. The tabs menu
(1) allows you to navigate through the equivalent of the Pulse LE front panel menu items (see also “The
Pulse LE Menu”). The green window of the RCS (2) represents your Preview window, and can be used to
parameter sources, frames, layers and logos directly by clicking on the corresponding button, then navigating
through the different available tabs. The red window of the RCS (3) represents your Main window, and can
also be used much like the front panel of the Pulse LE. Create user presets directly in the RCS main window,
by clicking on one of the four available Preset icons (4) and setting up your preset in the Preview window.
Clear unwanted steps with the clear button (5), reload a fresh copy of your screen via the Reload Main button
(6), make smooth takes directly with your mouse or trackpad with the virtual T-bar (7). The [TAKE] button
(9) will allow you to view any changes made to your preview screen on your main screen, and Analog Way
engineers have even implemented a Stepback button (8) to quickly move back to your previous setup in the
case of a manipulation error. The status section (10) allows for easy monitoring of the connection status.

again.
Working with PIPs
The Pulse LE with the Frame/PIP option installed, allows users to
manipulate a PIP (Picture In Picture) which you can move, size, crop
or zoom, apply transparency or transitions to.
43
PIP configuration
1/ Click on the Image tab of the RCS interface. The empty Image
screen will appear on screen.
2/ By clicking on the drop-down menu in the Preview section, situated
next to the layer you wish to use as a PIP, you will access the
image parameters of the PIP source you select (#1 to #10).
3/ Set the desired PIP attributes (size, position, zoom, border,
transparency...).
4/ Click the Image tab to return to the main screen.
Layer transitions & effects
The Pulse LE offers a wide variety of transitions between the scenes
you create for your shows and events. It allows for live recall of
4 user presets, each of which you can edit at any given time.
1/ In the Layer Selection section, click the PIP button. On your Preview
screen, PIP1 will appear as a color rectangle. The parameters of
the layer will automatically appear in the RCS Preview section.
2/ At the bottom of the Preview section, click on the Transition tab,
then select the transition type from the left dropdown menu, and
the effect behaviour from the right dropdown menu.
3/ Determine effect duration by sliding the duration bar left (shorter)
or right (longer), or by manualy setting the value in the duration
value box.
4/ Repeat the procedure in the Closing Effect tab to determine the
way your layer will close.
Creating presets
The Pulse LE allows the creation of user defined presets very easily.
Any setup you have configured on screen, can be stored into one of
the 4 available user presets.
1/ After having configured layers, PIP transitions, logos... on your
screen (see “Working With the RCS” chapter), click on one of the
four available Preset buttons.
2/ In the dropdown menu, choose Save From Main or Save From Preview
to determine which screen you want to memorize the preset from.
3/ By clicking one of the two options, the RCS will automatically load
and preview the selected Preset.
4/ Click the Take button to view your preset on the Main screen.
44
Working with presets
The four Pulse LE user presets can be called back at any stage
during your show or event.
1/ Click one of the four available Preset buttons to choose which
memory you wish to use. Select Load to Preview from the
dropdown menu, your preset will appear on the Preview screen.
2/ Once you have selected your preset, simply click the [TAKE]
button to view the result on your main screen.
Working with audio
The Pulse LE allows to work with up to 6 stereo inputs, 1 auxiliary
input, and 2 embedded SDI audio inputs (via the SDI BNC
connectors), all accessible via the Audio menu of the Pulse LE, and
which can be affected to one or both of the 2 independant symetrical/
asymetrical outputs of the device.
Audio Configuration
To configure audio settings of the Pulse LE, plug all audio inputs
into the device, and click on the Audio tab of the RCS home page.
1/ Set the Main audio output level and delay (accessible only if Delay
Mode is set to Manual Adjust, see also the “Audio Configuration”
chapter), or click the Mute button to mute Main audio output.
2/ Repeat step 2 for the Prelist audio output.
3/ Individual source settings (level and balance) for each audio input
can be configured in the right hand section of the Audio tab.
