1.1
CONCERNING THE VD-1673
General description
The model VD-1673 is an HDMI signal switcher which is provided with two HDMI input ports and
eight output ports. It enables the input ports to be switched for TVs which have a multiple number of
HDMI inputs without having to change the cable connections. When it is used together with a
generator in the VG series, it enables the signals of the input ports to be monitored easily.
The switcher makes it possible to distribute the TMDS signals among the HDMI input signals, and
output them when HDCP is not going to be executed.
1.2
Features
„
HDMI input selection
One of the two HDMI signals supplied to the VD-1673 can be selected and output.
„
HDMI output selection
Any one of the eight ports for outputting the signals from the VD-1673 can be selected.
„
HDMI output distribution
When HDCP is not going to be executed, it is possible to distribute the TMDS signals among
the HDMI input signals supplied to the VD-1673, and output them.
„
Control method selection
Three control methods are available to establish the settings to be used for selecting and
distributing the HDMI input and output signals: The first method exercises control using the
switches on the VD-1673 unit, the second exercises external control (TTL level) from the
general-purpose connectors, and the third exercises external control from a VG series
generator.
„
Connection with a VG series generator
By using the VD-1673 in combination with a VG series generator, control over the VD-1673 can
be registered as a series of programmed settings in the VG series generator.

DESCRIPTION OF FUNCTIONS
The VD-1673 can select any one of the input and output ports and output signals or it can distribute the signals
from a multiple number of output ports, and output them. These functions are described in more detail below.
3.1
Output mode
The VD-1673 can output the HDMI signal of the input port selected from the two input ports through
its output ports. Two modes are used for outputting the signals.
3.1.1
SELECTION mode
When “SELECTION mode” has been selected as the output method setting, one of the VD-1673’s
output ports can be selected for outputting the signals. HDMI signals are not sent through the output
ports which are not selected. (The same status is established as when the power of the source unit
is OFF.)
Use the “SELECTION mode” setting if the TMDS signals input to the VD-1673 have been encoded
by the content protection function using HDCP.
CAUTION
3.1.2
*1
The DDC and CEC signals among the HDMI signals are also switched.
*2
If the connection of the sink unit cannot be verified by the hot plug signal, the TMDS
output of the unit’s port concerned is set to OFF.
DISTRIBUTION mode
When “DISTRIBUTION mode” has been selected as the output method setting, the TMDS signals
are output from all the VD-1673’s output ports.
Use the “SELECTION mode” setting if the TMDS signals input to the VD-1673 are encoded by the
content protection function using HDCP.
CAUTION
*
The DDC and CEC signals among the HDMI signals take effect only for those output
ports selected.
*
If “DISTRIBUTION mode” has been selected when TMDS signals encoded using
HDCP have been input, the signals will be output normally only through the output
ports selected.
*
If the connection of the sink unit cannot be verified by the hot plug signal, the TMDS
output of the unit’s port concerned is set to OFF.

Precautions
Concerning the performance of the VD-1673
•
Depending on the signals which are input to the VD-1673, it may not be possible to output the output
signals properly.
•
It is not recommended that the VD-1673 be used at multiple stages.
Concerning the CONFIGURATION switches
•
The reserve bits must be set to OFF without fail.
Concerning the CEC line
•
CEC communication is possible only using the input port selected and the output port or ports selected.
(The CEC line for the input and output ports not selected is cut off.)
•
While the switcher’s power is OFF, the CEC line for the input port and output port is cut off. (While the
power is OFF, CEC communication with the VD-1673 in between units on either side is not possible.)
Concerning the pre-emphasis level
•
When the pre-emphasis level has been set to “3 dB” or “6 dB,” the TMDS characteristics will not satisfy
the ratings under the HDMI standard.
Concerning the “DISTRIBUTION” output mode
•
The DDC and CEC signals among the HDMI signals take effect only for those output ports selected.
•
If “DISTRIBUTION mode” has been selected when TMDS signals encoded using HDCP have been input,
the signals will be output normally only through the output ports selected.
