Introduction
About the SVS 100
Extron’s SVS 100 Seamless Video Switcher is a four-input, one output switcher that
provides low-cost seamless switching for applications such as video conferencing,
distance learning, staging and video editing, without the need for expensive
genlock equipment. The switcher inputs can be NTSC or PAL. The SVS 100
seamlessly switches among the inputs using digital switching effects, such as cuts,
wipes, dissolves, and fades. These special effects eliminate the need for expensive
genlock equipment. If necessary, the SVS 100 can sync to an external black burst
signal for broadcast applications.
The switcher can accept inputs from up to four video sources, such as VCRs, DVD
players, laser disk players, CODECs, and document cameras (see figure 1-1). Two
of the inputs autoselect between S-video or composite video, with S-video as the
priority. The remaining two inputs are composite only. Each input is buffered and
output on an adjacent connector.
S-video inputs are encoded to composite, and composite video inputs are decoded
to S-video. Three NTSC or PAL video outputs (two composite and one S-video)
allow multiple displays of the switched video signal without the need for a
distribution amplifier.

Figure 1-1 — Typical SVS 100 application
The switcher’s color, tint, brightness, and contrast controls can be adjusted to
correct for differences between source inputs. Extron’s exclusive variable
horizontal blanking feature allows the operator to mask the top and bottom of each
image.
By default, the audio input follows the video switch. Audio breakaway,
commanded via the Windows-based control program or under RS-232 control,
allows the user to select from any one of the four audio input sources.

SVS 100 Introduction
SVS 100 Features
Four NTSC or PAL video inputs —
•
2 S-video or composite video inputs — 2 rear panel, 4-pin mini-DIN
connectors (Input 1 and Input 2) accept luminance (Y) and chrominance (C)
input. Alternately, 2 rear panel BNC connectors accept composite video
input. The video inputs can be specified through a menu system, as either
Auto, Video, or S-video. Auto will automatically select the active input. If
S-video and composite video are both input, the SVS 100 will automatically
select the S-video input.
•
2 composite video only inputs — 2 rear panel BNC connectors (Input 3 and
Input 4) accept composite video input.
Any inputs must either be all NTSC or all PAL, they cannot be both.
Four NTSC or PAL buffered output loops —
•
2 S-video or composite buffered output loops — Input 1 and Input 2 each
output a buffered loop of the selected video input on either 4-pin mini-DIN
connectors (S-video) or BNC connectors (composite).
•
2 composite video only buffered output loops — Input 3 and Input 4 each
output a buffered loop of the composite video input on BNC connectors.
Three NTSC or PAL video outputs —
•
2 composite video outputs — Switched outputs on rear panel BNC
connectors
•
1 S-video output — Switched output on rear panel 4-pin mini-DIN connector
Four balanced/unbalanced stereo audio inputs — Four rear panel captive screw
terminals accept audio inputs. Each input’s level can be individually preset.
Pre-amp output for powered speakers is provided on a 3.5 mm, 5-pole captive
screw terminal.
Seamless switching — Noise and other video glitches are eliminated by a userselectable assortment of cut, wipe, dissolve, and fade effects.
Genlock connection — A black burst external sync signal can be input and daisychained via rear panel BNC connectors.
Picture controls — Color, tint, brightness, contrast, and top and bottom blanking
can be adjusted for each input to correct for differences between sources.
Audio breakaway — Audio and video can be switched separately by using
RS-232 control. This feature can be set through Extron’s Simple Instruction
Set™ (SIS™).
RS-232/RS-422 control — A computer or other RS-232/RS-422 control device can be
used to control the SVS 100 switcher with Extron’s Simple Instruction Set™
(SIS™) or the Windows-based control program.
Memory — 128 picture configurations can be stored in memory.
Versatile mounting options — The SVS 100 can be rack mounted, or it can be
mounted under a desk or table, or against a wall or the side of a desk.

how to install and use the control software and the SIS commands.
The SVS 100 comes from the factory already configured for RS-232. To set the
SVS 100 for RS-422 operation, please see “Configuring the SVS 100 for
RS-422” in the Appendix.
Genlock and Vertical Interval Switching
For vertical interval switching (to allow clean switching between signals from
several devices during the vertical blanking period of each signal), a composite
sync signal can be applied at the Genlock In connector, and also passed to another
device via the Genlock Out connector.
SVS 100 Installation
2-5
Installation, cont’d
If the genlock connectors are used only for vertical interval switching, no
horizontal or subcarrier phase adjustments are required, and the Burst Lock LED
on the front panel does not light (see Genlock controls and indicators in chapter 3).
Genlock setup
Genlock differs from simple vertical interval switching in that an external device
(a black burst generator) generates a reference sync signal for the system, and
every device that uses that signal has its output signal’s horizontal and
subcarrier phases adjusted to exactly match that of the generator to allow precise
timing and full synchronization. Genlocked systems produce cleaner switches
between inputs than do those without this type of synchronization.
An oscilloscope is required for genlock setup, and a vectorscope is
recommended. Waveform monitors of types other than a vectorscope may give
the appearance that timing is adjusted correctly when it is 180 degrees out of
phase, which will result in incorrect colors or picture artifacts.
To synchronize the SVS 100’s video output with a genlock signal, follow these
steps:
All equipment in the system must be powered up and turned on for at least 15
to 20 minutes before genlock setup adjustments can be made and before the
equipment is used in a genlocked application.
1.
Power up and turn on all the devices that will use the genlock signal.
The devices must be on for at least 15 to 20 minutes before proceeding
with any adjustments.
2.
Connect the active timing source signal to the Genlock In connector on
the rear panel.

3.
Connect the video input signals to the SVS 100, as described previously
in this chapter. The Burst Lock LED lights green to indicate that the SVS
100 is receiving an acceptable genlock (black burst) sync signal via the
Genlock In connector.
4.
Connect the oscilloscope (“scope”) probe A to the Genlock Out connector.
This will provide the scope’s reference signal. In order to avoid altering
the genlock signal, use the cabling configuration that will be used in the
installation. Either connect the genlock signal cable from the scope to the
next device in the system to be timed, or provide 75 ohm termination at
the scope’s genlock output.
5.
Connect scope probe B to the SVS 100’s composite video output
connector.
6.
Using the instructions for the scope you are using, set the scope to view
the signal’s horizontal phases. Press the SVS 100’s Horz Phase button for
2 seconds (see the Operation chapter) and adjust the horizontal phase by
SVS 100 Installation
rotating the encoder knob (see Encoder knob in the next chapter). Adjust
the horizontal phase until there is no (0°) difference between the
composite video output’s horizontal sync phase and the genlock signal’s
horizontal phase. See the Oscilloscope displays section.
7.
Set the scope to view the subcarrier signals. Press the SVS 100’s Sub
Phase button for 2 seconds (see the Operation chapter) and adjust the sub
phase by rotating the encoder knob until there is a zero phase difference
between the genlock signal and the NTSC/PAL output. The Burst Lock
LED should light.
If the Burst Lock LED does not light at this point, either adjust the horizontal
or subcarrier phases further, or use a different genlock source.
8.
View the horizontal phases again. If the phase difference is not zero,
repeat steps 6 and 7 until the settings do not change.
If the Burst Lock LED does not light at all when genlock is active and the
horizontal and subcarrier phases have been adjusted to match the genlock
signal, do not continue with this procedure. A different, more stable or timebase-corrected sync signal must be used for the genlock timing source.
9.
Once the settings are stable and the Burst Lock LED lights, disconnect the
oscilloscope, and reconnect the genlock cables.
10. Check the display(s) for proper colors and for undesirable artifacts in the
image(s). Make adjustments as necessary.
11. If other SVS 100s are part of this genlock daisy chain, connect the
oscilloscope to each device, and repeat this procedure.
Oscilloscope displays
What you see on the oscilloscope while adjusting the SVS 100 to match the
genlock signal depends on the type of signal used, the type of oscilloscope,
and the procedure the scope requires. This section shows some examples of
oscilloscope displays.
Figure 2-7 below shows the genlock input signal (top) and an out-of-alignment
NTSC composite sync output signal (bottom) displayed on a waveform
monitor to check for alignment. When the phases are aligned, the wave peaks
on the bottom waveform should line up with those in the reference signal
above it.
Figure 2-7 — Superimposed waveforms
SVS 100 Installation

Installation, cont’d
With this method there is no way to know if the signals are 180º out of
phase. A delayed sweep on a time-based scope would allow a more
accurate display of the input and output signal phase relationships.
A vectorscope is more accurate than a waveform monitor. Figure 2-8 shows
an example of a vectorscope display when the horizontal phase is adjusted
to align it with the burst (genlock) vector. Adjust the horizontal phase by
rotating the encoder knob until the difference between the two vectors is 0º.
This example shows black burst only (with no color). The burst vector is
pointing to the left from the center.

Optimizing the Video and Audio Inputs
Before storing any input video and audio configuration information into memory
via the RS-232/RS-422 commands, adjust the input video images for optimum
contrast, brightness, tint, color, and blanking. If there is audio input, adjust the
audio level. Upon initial power up of the SVS 100, optimize the video and audio
sources, as explained in the following steps.
1.
To optimize the video input, press the input button and adjust the image, as
follows.
a.
Contrast — Press the Contrast button and rotate the encoder knob to
increase or decrease the image contrast from 0 to 150 (default is 141).
b.
Brightness — Press the Brightness button and rotate the encoder knob
to increase or decrease the image brightness from 0 to 50 (default is
23).
c.
Tint — Press the Tint button and rotate the encoder knob to increase
or decrease the image tint from 0 to 32 (default is 16).
d.
Color — Press the Color button and rotate the encoder knob to
increase or decrease the image color from 0 to 100 (default is 80).
e.
Top blanking — To remove unwanted information or noise from the
top edge of the display, rotate the encoder knob to increase or
decrease the top blanking from 0 to 16.
f.
Bottom blanking — To remove unwanted information or noise from
the bottom edge of the display, rotate the encoder knob to increase or
decrease the bottom blanking from 0 to 16.
2.
To optimize the audio input, press the Audio button and rotate the encoder
knob to increase or decrease the audio input level from -15 to +9dB.
3.
After optimizing the video and audio input, save the configuration via the
Simple Instruction Set command or the included Windows®-based control
software. Up to 128 input configurations may be saved this way. See
chapter 5, Serial Communication, for details.

MVP 104 Operation
Windows®-based Control Program
The MVP and SVS Control Program (Extron part number 29-047-01), which is
used by the SVS 100, requires Windows 95/98, NT, or later. It provides
remote control of SVS 100 functions.
Installing the Windows-based Control Software
The program is contained on two 3.5-inch diskettes. The program occupies
approximately 1.5 MB (megabyte) of hard-drive space. Run the program
from the hard drive.
To install the software from the floppy disks onto the hard drive, run
SETUP.EXE from the first floppy disk, and follow the instructions that
appear on the screen.
By default, the Windows installation creates a C:\MVP+SVS directory, and it
places two icons (MVP+SVS Control Pgm and MVP+SVS Help) into a group
folder named “Extron Electronics”.
Using the Software

Commands and responses for programming the SVS 100 from a host system
connected to the RS-232/RS-422 port are listed on the following pages.
Host-to-SVS 100 Communication
The SVS 100 accepts SIS™ (Simple Instruction Set™) commands through the
RS-232/RS-422 port. SIS commands consist of one or more characters per
command field. They do not require any special characters to begin or end
the command character sequence. Each SVS 100 response to an SIS
command ends with a carriage return and a line feed (CR/LF = ), which
signals the end of the response character string. A string is one or more
characters.
SVS 100-initiated messages
When a local event occurs, such as a front panel operation, the SVS 100
responds by sending a message to the host. The SVS 100-initiated messages
are listed below (underlined).
(c) Copyright 2000, Extron Electronics, SVS 100, Vx.xx
The copyright message is initiated by the SVS 100 when it is first powered
on. Vx.xx is the firmware version number.

it performs the command and sends a response to the host device. If the SVS
100 is unable to perform the command because the command is invalid or
contains invalid parameters, the SVS 100 returns an error response to the
host. The error response codes are:
5-6
E01
— Invalid input number
E09
— Invalid function number (too large)
E10
— Invalid command

Saving and Recalling Input Configuration Presets
The SVS 100 is capable of storing up to 128 input configurations which can be
recalled just prior to switching from one input to another. This save/recall
capability is only available through RS-232/RS-422 commands and not via the front
panel controls of the SVS 100. By recalling preset input configurations just prior to
switching, switching from one input to another can be accomplished in a seamless,
well-planned fashion. See chapter 5, Serial Communication, for details on saving
and recalling memory presets.
Saving and recalling preset input configurations are only available through
RS-232/RS-422 control using the Simple Instruction Set commands or by
using the included Windows®-based control software. These operations are not
available through the front panel of the SVS 100.
The input configurations that can be stored include all the Picture Control
functions, such as color, tint, brightness, contrast, top blanking. The Effects
settings, such as effect, transition, and duration, the audio level, and the Genlock
Controls, such as horizontal phase and sub phase, are not saved. Figure A-1 and
the following Simple Instruction Set commands illustrate how the SVS 100 can
recall a configuration preset for input from an Extron 32 x 32 Matrix 3200 video
switcher.

Figure A-1 — Configuration preset application example
The following sequence of SVS 100 RS-232 commands will recall an SVS 100
preset configuration, send a command to the Matrix switcher which tells the
Matrix switcher where to output an input signal, and finally, send a command to
tell the SVS 100 to switch to the next input (which is now configured with the
recalled preset configuration).
1.
The first SIS command to the SVS 100 will recall a configuration preset:
1*30
In this example, preset #30 has been recalled for Input #1 of the SVS
100.
2.
A-2
SVS 100 Appendix
This SIS command to the Matrix switcher will switch its input to an
output.
32*30!
In this example, input #32 is being switched to output #30 (with audio
following video)
3.
The last SIS command to the SVS 100 will select an input:
1!
In this example, Input #1 is selected as the current input (with audio
following video).
Configuring the SVS 100 for RS-422
The SVS 100 comes configured from the factory for RS-232 communications. If an
RS-422 configuration is required, follow the procedures below. The procedures will
involve removing the top cover, relocating the serial port ribbon cable and setting
the jumper, and replacing the top cover.
