Audio connections
The stereo audio inputs 1–3 ( 7 and 8 on page 2-5 and below)
correspond to video inputs 1, 2, and 3. All four audio inputs can
be selected via the front panel buttons, RS-232 control
(including MLC), or the MediaLink Control Software. An audio
signal from one of these inputs is output only when the
corresponding input is selected. Using the MediaLink Control
Software you can separately adjust the level of each of these
audio inputs.
The mix output level can be adjusted between -43 dB and +24 dB.
The Aux/Mix level must be adjusted
physically via the front panel
control. It cannot be adjusted via
software.
Connect a 3.5 mm, 3-pole captive screw
connector to one end of an audio
cable as shown at right. Wire the

Later, after all the equipment has been cabled and powered on,
use the MediaLink Control Program or an RS-232 controller to set
the per-input gain/attenuation to match the correct audio output
level for the kind of output (balanced or unbalanced) you need.
See pages 2-9 and 4-10 for details on determining and setting
the gain/attenuation to produce the desired output levels.
If you wire an audio output for balanced output, the MLS
will output a unity signal (input level = output level).
Wiring an audio output for unbalanced output causes
the audio signal to be attenuated by 6 dB. See pages 2-9
and 2-10 for instructions on adjusting audio gain.
Overall volume control ranges from 0% (90 dB
attenuation) to 100% (0 dB attenuation). Adjustment
increments are 1 dB for steps from 1% to 40% volume.
Adjustments are in 0.5 dB increments from 41% to
100% of full volume.

MLC/RS-232 Power port (all models) — An Extron MediaLink
Controller (MLC 206), a computer, or an RS-232 controller
provides remote control of input switching and volume, and
also provides a way to set the switcher’s audio input levels. To
control and/or set up the MLS, connect a cable between this
5-pole, 3.5 mm captive screw connector and an optional MLC
206, computer, or a RS-232 controller. Also connect an external
12 VDC power supply here to provide power to the MLS and to
the optional MLC.
Once the system has been cabled and set up via the control
software and the front panel Aux/Mix adjustment, the MLC or
a host computer communicating through the MLC can be used
to remotely control the switcher. Refer to chapter four of the
MediaLink Controllers User’s Manual and to the MediaLink
Control Program help file for details on configuring an
MLC-MLS system.
An Extron IR Link infrared repeater cannot be used with
the MLS 100 Series switchers. There is no connection
for that device’s control signals.
Extron Comm-Link cable is recommended for this connection.
If using Comm-Link cable, the switcher and controller can be up
to 250 feet (76.2 m) apart. Wire the captive screw connector for
connection to an MLC 206 or third party controller as shown
below.
•
The MLC to which the MLS 100 Series switcher is
connected must have MLC firmware version 1.04 or
higher. The control/setup software must be version
2.0 or higher. Use one of the following methods to find
out the version levels of the MLC’s firmware and the
control software.
• Connect the MLC’s RS-232 port to a computer or
RS-232 controller, and send an SIS command (see
chapter four) of Q to the MLC. The MLC will respond
with its firmware version.
• Connect the MLC’s RS-232 port to a computer, start
the MediaLink control software
(see chapter four), and click on
Help to display the software

Aux/Mix Level control — This potentiometer controls the
auxiliary/mix audio volume. This channel’s audio is always
output, no matter which, if any, other audio input (0, 1, 2, 3, 4) is
selected. Use a small screwdriver to turn this control while you
listen to the audio output. When the control is turned to its
counterclockwise limit (-43 dB), the Aux/Mix signal will be
inaudible. You will hear the maximum Aux/Mix volume when
the control is turned to the clockwise limit (+24 dB).
Once this level is set, the Aux/Mix level remains the
same no matter which input (1 through 4) is selected,
and the Aux/Mix audio can be heard at that level even if
the selectable audio inputs are muted or if audio input 0
is selected via RS-232 control.
Input selection buttons and indicator LEDs — Press one of
these buttons to select the desired audio and video input. The
corresponding LED lights and remains lit while an audio-video
input is selected. During audio breakaway (selectable only via
RS-232 control, described in chapter four), audio is switched
separately from video; the selected video input’s LED lights
steadily, and the audio input’s LED blinks.
•
The MLS 100 A accepts only audio inputs, so pressing one
of these buttons selects an audio-only input.
•
The MLS 103 V and MLS 103 SV offer three video inputs
and four selectable audio inputs. Pressing button 1, 2, or 3
selects audio-video input 1, 2, or 3; pressing button 4
selects audio-only input 4.
•
The MLS 102 VGA offers two computer-video inputs and
four selectable audio inputs. Pressing button 1 or button 2
selects audio-video input 1 or 2; pressing button 3 or
button 4 selects an audio-only input (3 or 4) .
If you select an audio-only input (input 3 or 4 for MLS 102 VGA,
input 4 for MLS 103 SV and MLS 103 V) via front panel buttons,
the video signal is muted, and the selected audio input’s LED
blinks.
Input 0 can be selected via RS-232 control only by using an SIS
command or by selecting Mute (shown here)
from the User Mode section of the control
program (if the MLS is used without an MLC).
Selecting input 0 mutes the audio from inputs 1
through 4.
The gain and attenuation for audio inputs 1 through 4
is adjustable only via RS-232 control (using a third
party controller, a MediaLink Controller, or the
MediaLink Control Software.)
The gain and attenuation for the Aux/Mix input is
adjustable only via the Aux/Mix Level control.
Executive mode — enabling and disabling front
panel buttons
1.
To disable front panel input selection (turn executive mode
on), simultaneously press input selection buttons 1 and 4
and hold them down for three seconds. All LEDs will
light for about one second.
2.
While executive mode is on, input selection can be
performed via RS-232 control or from an optional
MediaLink Controller.
3.
To enable front panel input selection (turn executive mode

version.
• Connect the MLC’s RS-232 port to a computer, start
the MediaLink control software, and click on Help to
display the software version, the MLC’s firmware
version, and the MLS’s firmware version.
Troubleshooting
1.
Connect the cables between the MLS and the A/V input
devices. Connect the provided power supply and a host
computer, third party control system, or MediaLink
Controller to the MLS’s MLC/RS-232 Power port.
Connect the MLS to the display device (projector) and
audio output device (tape deck, speakers).
2.
Connect the control device (computer, control system, or
MLC 206), the A/V source devices, projector and audio
output device to a power source and turn them on.
3.
Start the MediaLink Control Program, and set up the MLS
(and the MLC, if one is used). See chapter four.
• The audio settings may be too low. Adjust the
Aux/Mix level by turning the Aux/Mix Level
adjustment on the front panel. Adjust each
selectable input’s level by using SIS commands, a
control system, or the Switcher (MLS) Config. part
of the MediaLink Control Software.
• The input or output connectors may not be firmly
attached to the MLS, or they may be miswired.
To set up the MLS 100 Series switcher you must use
MediaLink Control Software version 2.0 or higher.
See the second note on page 2-9. If the software version
is below 2.0, download a new version of the software
from the Extron Web site, www.extron.com.
4.
4b.
Press an input button on the MLS, watch the MLS’s LEDs,
observe the display, and listen to the audio.
4a.
4b.
If the input selection LED does not light when a
button is pressed, the MLS might not be receiving
power. Check the wiring at the MLS’s MLC/RS-232
Power port.
• If the conductor assignments are not correct, the
circuits may be damaged if power is applied to the
wrong pole.
• If the wiring is correct, ensure that the power
supply has been plugged in to a functional power
source.
5.
If power is present, but sound from inputs 1
through 4 isn’t audible, and if changing the audio
volume and gain/attenuation settings does not
resolve the problem, make sure that neither audio
input 0 nor audio mute is selected. Use the SIS
information (I) command or the MediaLink Control
Program to determine the audio settings.
Call the Extron S3 Sales and Technical Support Hotline if
the equipment still does not respond when the MLS’s
buttons are pressed.
If power is present at the MLS and at the input and
output devices, but nothing happens (an A/V
switch is not detected) when a button is pressed:
• If a MediaLink Controller is part of the system, the
MLC’s firmware may be too old. If it is older than
version 1.04, contact Extron for a firmware
upgrade.
The MLC to which the MLS 100 Series switcher is
connected must have MLC firmware version 1.04 or
higher. Use one of the following methods to find out the
version levels of the MLC’s firmware and the control
software.
• Connect the MLC’s RS-232 port to a computer or
RS-232 controller, and send an SIS command of Q to

The included Extron MediaLink Control Program for Windows
offers another way to control the switcher via RS-232 connection
in addition to the Simple Instruction Set commands. The
control program’s graphical interface includes input selection
functions and some additional features that are only available
through the software.
To set up the MLS 100 Series switcher you must use
MediaLink Control Software version 2.0 or higher.
The control software is compatible with Windows 95/98,
Windows NT, and Windows 2000. Extron’s MediaLink Control
Program is included with the MLS, and updates can be
downloaded from the Extron Web site
(http://www.extron.com).

1.
Run SETUP.EXE from the floppy disk.
2.
Follow the instructions that appear on the screen.
By default the installation creates a C:\MediaLnk
directory, and it places two icons (MediaLnk Control Pgm
and MediaLnk Help) into a group or folder named “Extron

parts of the control program where the features are found.
1.
To run the control program, double-click on the MediaLnk
Control Pgm icon in the Extron Electronics
group or folder. The Comm Port Selection
menu appears on the screen.
2.
Click on the comm port that is connected to the MLS’s
RS-232 port. The Extron MediaLink Control Program
windows appear. The port and firmware information are
displayed at the bottom of the screen. There are two views
available: the User Mode screen, and the Switcher (MLS)
Configuration screen.

User Mode
For stand-alone MLS 100 Series switchers
If an MLS 100 Series switcher is used without a MediaLink
Controller, the User Mode screen, shown below, emulates the
MLS’s front panel input selection buttons and also provides a
means of volume control. See page 3-2 for details on basic
operation.
Disable Switcher Front Panel Menus — This feature (near the
bottom of the screen) toggles the executive mode on or off
to prevent or enable making changes (input selections)
via the MLS’s front panel.
For MLS 100 Series switchers controlled by an MLC
If the MLS 100 Series switcher is connected to and controlled by
an MLC, the user mode screen will look something like what is
shown in the picture below.
Special features
Audio/video breakaway switching — To switch the audio signal separately from the video signal, check the Audio
checkbox (at the right side of the I/O Switching area) and
uncheck the Video checkbox, then select an input. The
MLS switches to that input’s audio and leaves the previously selected video source active. Audio breakaway is
shown above: the video is from input 1 and the audio is
from input 2. (The corresponding SIS command is 1&2$.)
In this case, you must set the volume control in
the Controller (MLC) Config section to
“Switcher”, as shown at right.
To switch the video signal without changing the audio
source, check the Video check box and
uncheck the Audio checkbox. See the
picture at left.
Selecting Mute selects input 0 (no input).
Volume Mute — Check this box (in the lower left corner) to
activate the audio mute (Amt) command. See
page 4-4 for the corresponding SIS command.

Switcher (MLS) Config
The Switcher (MLS) Config screen, shown below, allows you to
make adjustments without having to use the front panel
controls.
Emulation mode
The MediaLink Control Program features an emulation mode so
you can set up a MediaLink system before equipment is
available on site. In emulation mode a MediaLink Controller is
always included in the system. You select which MLS switcher
and which control modules will be connected to the MLC. For a
stand-alone MLS (without an MLC), connect the MLS directly to
the host computer for setup rather than using emulation mode.
You can save the emulated settings to a configuration file, then
load that configuration file to the switcher (or switcher and
MLC) when equipment is available.
1.
Start the control program by doubleclicking on the MediaLnk Control Pgm
icon in the Extron Electronics group or
folder. The Comm Port Selection
screen (shown at right) appears.
2.
Click on the Emulate radio button, then
click on OK. The Initialize Emulated
MediaLink Configuration from... dialog box appears.
3.
Because you will be creating a brand new configuration,
select
Cancel
instead of
selecting a
driver file.
In this part of the program you can:
• Set the per-input audio gain or attenuation.
• Set overall volume; this is the same as the User Mode volume
adjustment.
The Save
Emulated
MediaLink
Configuration
as... dialog
box
appears.
• Set the RGB delay period (MLS 102 VGA model only).
• Reset the switcher to factory default settings.
Saving and restoring configurations
The MLS can be configured via RS-232 communication, and the
configuration settings can be saved to a file for later use.
1.
In the MediaLink Control Program, select File, then select
Save Configuration as... .
2.
Save the file as filename.MLK. An unlimited number of
configuration files can be saved as long as each file has a
unique file name ending in .MLK.
3.
4-10
To retrieve the configuration from within the MediaLink
Control Program, select File, then select Restore
Configuration from... . A set of all the switcher and audio
adjustment settings will be downloaded into the MLS.
MediaLink™ VersaTools© Switchers • Serial Communication
4.
Enter a filename of your choice for storing the configuration
settings,
then select
Save.
The
Emulation

6.
2.
Connect a cable between the MLC/RS-232 Power port of
the MLS and the serial (RS-232) port of the PC (see chapter
two), and power on the MLS.
3.
Start the MediaLink Control/Configuration program.
4.
From the File pulldown menu in the upper left corner,
select Update Firmware.
Select the MediaLink equipment that will be part of the
system you want to configure, then click on OK. The
Extron MediaLink Control Program windows appear.
The MediaLink Control Software closes, and a separate
utility program opens and displays a window indicating
the current firmware version.
Select the desired settings in each section of the program.
If you include an MLC 206 in the system, keep in mind
that IR learning cannot be performed in emulation mode.
You must have an MLC connected to the host computer.
7.
To save the configuration for future use, follow steps 1 and
2 on page 4-10.
Updating firmware
If the need arises, you can replace the MLS’s firmware without
opening the unit or changing firmware chips. Follow the
directions below.
5.
Click on Upload. You will be prompted to select the
firmware file that you downloaded in step 1. Click on OK.
This procedure must be performed using a PC on which the
MediaLink Control Software (version 2.4 or higher) has been
installed, and the PC’s RS-232 port must be directly cabled to
the MLS’s MLC/RS-232 Power port.
CAUTION
Do not attempt to upload firmware if a MediaLink
Controller (MLC) or other control system is
connected to the MLS switcher. The RS-232 cable
from the PC must be connected directly to the MLS.
Each time you replace existing firmware, the switcher
will be reset to the factory default settings.
1.
4-12
Visit the Extron Web site (www.extron.com) to find the
appropriate firmware file for the model of switcher you
want to update. Save the new firmware file, and write
down the filename and location for later use.
