Specifications
1.2
DDC/EDID Support
For best compatibility with source devices (eg, a PC), an extension device (DVI-Tx in this case) should provide
an appropriate DDC/EDID profile with the proper resolution and timing information to that source device. This
helps ensure best compatibility with display devices connected at the remote end.
The DVI-Tx is factory-programmed with a fixed EDID table. The supported video formats are detailed in
Appendix-A.
Unlike many other MultiView transmitter devices, it is not possible to “copy EDID data” from a display into the
DVI-Tx. This is not necessary because all the compatible digital video formats supported by the DVI-Tx are
already present in the factory-supplied EDID table.
1.3
Auxiliary Signal Support
The DVI-Tx is available in 2 factory-configured models, which allow different types of signals to be passed over
the 4th-pair on the CAT5 cable. These are configured differently by a front-panel setting, or may include an
internal hardware option-module.


MVII-DVI-Tx-A/S:
o (-A) mode: Supports L+R summed audio (user-configuration setting).
o (-S) mode: Supports 2-wire RS-232 serial in simplex mode (user-configuration setting).
o SPDIF mode: Supports S/PDIF pass-through on the 4th-pair.
o HDMI/DVI de-embedding mode: Extracts 2CH-PCM digital audio and sends out a SPDIF
stream on the 4th pair.
MVII-DVI-Tx-SAP:
o Supports 3-wire RS-232 serial (simplex or duplex), and true stereo audio.
o The serial feature is POLLABLE, so that multiple receivers on a daisy-chained link can be
addressed individually for display control or status-query.
o Contains the (SAP) option module.
The SAP option module is a factory-installed option. However, a field upgrade to the SAP version is possible. It
will require some minor technical skill to install the module. Please contact tech support for information and
assistance for these upgrades.
Note that for each DVI-Tx version above, the accompanying receiver device (DVI-Rx-1K, but also
AK600/AK1200DP receivers) must be similarly configured with regards to the 4th-pair settings. For more
specific information on MultiView™ receivers, please refer to the user-guide provided with your desired
receiver.

The MVII DVI-Tx-SAP comes equipped with an internal hardware SAP option module, enabling full-duplex RS232 serial (no hardware handshaking signals) and stereo audio. The SAP module in the DVI-Tx has no
address-switch settings. However, it is important to check the address-switch settings in the connected
Receiver SAP units (DVI-Rx-1K-SAP, AK600/1200DP-SAP etc.). Please refer to Appendices B and C for
information on setting the address-switches on the Receiver SAP modules.



Simplex or Duplex RS-232 support.
o Provides simplex or duplex serial data, even with daisy-chained receivers.
o Data is transmitted and received using “broadcast” mode by default.
o If desired, receivers are individually addressable.
o RS-232 interface supports a 3-wire interface: TX/RX/GND.
o Baud rate is adjustable in 9 steps from 1200 to 115K BAUD.
 The factory-default speed is 9600 BAUD.
o Note: The Receiver SAP modules must have their SAP address configured correctly.
 The factory-default setting for all (SAP) modules is address-0. This is the “broadcast”
address.
 Note: All Receiver SAP address configuration changes (via DIP switches, see
Appendix C) should be done before making any cable connections and applying
power.
Audio: L/R true stereo audio is supported simultaneously with serial data.
o Audio gain/mute settings are under serial control.
The SAP module provides many additional user-configurable settings, available through the serial port.
Please refer to the SAP-II Programmer’s Guide for additional details.
Note that in cases where a DVI-Tx-SAP transmitter is routed through a DA (Distribution Amp, such as a
MultiView 9D for example), or a Mondo (or other) video switch, the SAP module will provide simplex serial (TXonly, though the addressable-receiver and stereo-audio features still work). In this mode, receive-direction
serial data (RX) is ignored.

standards, as well as making nearly all user-configurable options “jumperless” via a digital front-panel userinterface.
Compatiblity with MultiView receivers:
 The MultiView-II DVI-Tx transmitter is primarily intended for use with the MultiView-II DVI-Rx-1K
Receiver.
 It can also be used with standard (legacy) MultiView and (new) MultiView-II receivers.
o In these applications, the DVI-Tx transmitter enables a digital video source to effectively drive
an analog (VGA) display at the receiver.
o There may be video-format and timing limitations, which may result in some digital formats not
displaying correctly on typical analog VGA displays.
o It is essential that the desired configuration be tested with the actual sources & displays
needed for the specific application.
 The DVI-Tx supports all legacy MultiView sync-modes, including RepliSync-I and RepliSync-II.
The MultiView-II DVI-Rx-1K ONLY operates in Fixed Sync mode (default)

Twisted-pair Cable Compatibility
Chapter 4
Twisted-pair Cable Compatibility
The MVII-DVI-Tx transmitter is compatible with twisted-pair “FTP” type cable. This type of cable ensures best
possible product performance, and maintains EMC compliance for emissions and susceptibility. However, in
applications that must use cable other than “FTP”, it is up to the end-user to ensure product performance at the
intended resolution and distance, and that additional steps are taken to mitigate any RF interference.
In the FTP cable category, there is regular-skew (or IT-grade) cable, and in some areas, “minimized skew”
(video-grade) cable may be available. The DVI-Tx transmitter is compatible with both types. Follow these tips to
ensure proper usage of your Category cabling:

Some “low-skew” cable is specific to a particular vendor and is incompatible with our products. Ensure
that any “low-skew” cable is non-proprietary before purchase and installation.

CAT6 cable, due to the manufacture method, can exhibit much greater skew than standard CAT5/5e.
Please contact tech-support for assistance.

Cabling for the Magenta MultiView™ Series must be pinned to the TIA-EIA T568B wiring specification.

We also highly recommend that all cables be pre-terminated and tested. Cables terminated on-site or
in an existing infrastructure should be tested before use to ensure compliance with the TIA-EIA T568B
specification. Using incorrectly terminated cables can damage the Magenta MultiView™ Series.

The cable should be suitably rated Listed cable ( DUZX ) communication cables, TYPE CMP, CMR,
CMG or CM as designated in the NEC.

Cables are to be installed in accordance with the NEC and local building and electrical codes. This is
the responsibility of the end user/installer of this product.
The following figure shows the T568B Wiring specification.

This equipment is not intended for, nor does it support, distribution through an Ethernet network.
Do not connect these devices to any sort of networking or telecommunications equipment!
Do not connect DC power until instructed to do so.
5.1
Option-Module Configuration
If your MVII-DVI-Tx transmitter is equipped with the (SAP) option, then the following information will be
important to review BEFORE installing the –SAP equipped receiver:
The companion -SAP equipped receiver (MVII-DVI-Rx-1K, or legacy –SAP type receivers) offers pollable
RS232 duplex serial in addition to stereo audio. The serial interface is 3-wire (TX, RX, GND) and does not
support full modem signals. The factory-default serial baud rate is 9600 baud, but this is a user-configurable
option using “SAP-II” serial commands. Simplex modes are supported without jumper or other changes by
simply using the TX signal only. The SAP-module capability of polling and interacting with specific receivers
requires that each receiver have a unique address setting. Please refer to Appendix-B for (SAP) module
configuration information, and Appendix-C for SAP-address settings.
5.2
Prerequisites
Depending on the specific installation requirements, some common tools (screwdrivers, nut-drivers) and related
hardware (mounting screws) might be required. These are not provided with Magenta products.
The following items might be necessary, which are available from Magenta Research:



Audio cable: Phoenix 4-pin to RCA.
Video cable(s): DVI (or HDMI with an appropriate DVI/HDMI adapter)
Serial cable: Phoenix 4-pin to DB9, or one of several DB9-M/F, M/M or F/F extension cables.
Note: You will need appropriate twisted-pair cable as previously described, to connect the MVII-DVI-Tx to other
MultiView™ devices. tvONE does not supply this cable.
5.3
Installation Procedure
Ensure that all connectors are clean and free of contaminants prior to making the
connections. Appropriate connector locking hardware (screws/latches) should be used to
prevent cables from disconnecting or causing intermittent operation.
All units must be the same type for 4th-pair supported features to function correctly. For
example, a “MVII-DVI-Tx-A” must be paired with a MVII-DVI-Rx-1K-A, as both must be
identical to work properly. Similarly, an “MVII-DVI-Tx-SAP” can only be used with an MVIIDVI-Rx-1K-SAP”. Video modes may function normally, but 4th pair options will not.


The power-on LED should light up (Green).

The CFG indicator is off.

The SKEW/RGB indicator is off.

The EQ/SKEW indicators display the current EQ settings (0 to 100%).
6.
IMPORTANT: The MVII-DVI-Rx-1K will auto-adjust the EQ and Skew settings. This is
the factory-default behavior. However, in some applications it will be necessary to
manually fine-tune these adjustments, or leave it in manual-adjust mode after the
initial setup.
7.
When the EQ and SKEW settings are properly adjusted, the video should appear on the display (make sure
display is powered ON).
8.

Adjustments
This section describes how to make the following adjustments:


Cable distance (EQ) compensation
Skew compensation
Note that the factory-default behavior of the MVII-DVI-Rx-1K “auto-adjust mode enabled” for the EQ and skewcomp. To exit auto-adjust mode, simply attempt to make a manual adjustment to either EQ or Skew.
To re-enable auto-adjust mode, simply push both UP and DOWN buttons simultaneously when the
receiver is operating in “normal mode”.
5.5
Cable Distance (EQ) Compensation Settings
When the MVII-DVI-Rx-1K is operating in normal mode (CFG indicator is off), it is possible to quickly adjust the
EQ. The EQ/SKEW indicators 1-8 will change accordingly to show (in “bar-graph” form) 0 to 100% of the
available EQ adjustment range.
For best results, use the Magenta EQ/Skew test pattern image if possible. A test pattern
image and video instructions is available at http://www.magenta-research.com/test.
The following figure shows the test image you can use to make the EQ adjustment.
Figure 5: EQ-adjustment test image

Configuration
The DVI-Tx has a number of configurable operating parameters, and the factory-default settings will work in
most applications. However, some applications may require configuration changes. Nearly all settings are
available from the front-panel buttons/LEDs. The enclosure does not need to be opened unless the SAP option
module is being installed or removed.
For all configuration settings, the DVI-TX must be in CONFIG mode (CFG indicator is on). Once in CONFIG
mode, any changes are effective immediately and are saved in non-volatile memory.

To enter configuration-mode: Press CFG button once. The CFG indicator will turn on, confirming
you are in configuration-mode. Once in this mode, the LED indicators 1-8 will display the current
settings as described in the tables below.

To exit configuration-mode: Leave the buttons untouched for 10 seconds. The CFG indicator will
turn off (normal-mode).
To quickly reset all user-configurable options back to factory-default settings:
1.

5.7.1 Sync Settings
The DVI-Tx supports the complete set of MultiView sync modes:



RepliSync-I, RespliSync-Ia (normal/stretched): Generally needed for legacy MultiView receivers.
RepliSync-II: Required for newer MultiView-II receivers.
Auto-detect RSI/RSIa: The DVI-Tx will automatically select RepliSync-I or RepliSync-II, depending on
video format.
Fixed-Sync: Necessary for some legacy receivers and VGA displays.

Note that Fixed-sync is the factory-default setting, and is required when connecting to the
companion MVII-DVI-Rx-1K receiver.
Note that any connected MultiView™ receiver should generally be set to the same sync-mode and may require
other configuration adjustments (such as sync-polarity when using fixed-sync). Otherwise, you may not get a
proper video display output at that receiver, or none at all.
Perform the procedure below while the transmitter is in the normal operating state (CFG indicator is off):
 Press and release the CFG button once to access configuration-mode (CFG indicator = on).
 Press and release the SEL button once. You will now be able to change sync-mode settings.
 LED indicators 1-3 should be illuminated (either DIM or ON); all others (indicators 4-8) should be off.
 Press the CFG button repeatedly to step through the available sync-mode settings as shown below.
 To leave configuration-mode step through all the options OR leave the buttons untouched for 10
seconds.

Installation
5.7.2 4th Pair Settings
The DVI-Tx provides several options for using the 4th-pair signals (pairs 1-3 are generally used for video). Note
that any connected MultiView™ receiver must be configured with a matching 4th-pair operating mode.
Otherwise, the desired 4th-pair signal will not work as expected.
If the optional SAP daughterboard is installed, then the 4th-pair utilization is defined by the
installed daughterboard. It will not be possible to change any of the 4th-pair settings as
described below.
Perform the procedure below while the transmitter is in the normal operating state (CFG indicator is off):
 Press and release the CFG button once to access configuration-mode (CFG indicator = on).
 Press and release the SEL button twice. You will now be able to change 4th-pair option settings.
 LED indicators 4-6 should be illuminated (either DIM or ON); all others (indicators 1-3, 7 and 8) should
be off.
 Press the CFG button repeatedly to step through the available 4th-pair settings as shown below.
 To leave configuration-mode step through all the options OR leave the buttons untouched for 10

Troubleshooting
Chapter 6
Troubleshooting
In most cases, nearly every issue with the MultiView™ video system can be resolved by checking the twistedpair cable termination and making sure that it’s pinned to the TIA/EIA 568B wiring specification. However, there
may be other problems that cause the system to not perform as it’s designed. The following table lists the most
common installation errors and their solutions.
Table 3: Troubleshooting Problems and Solutions
Problem
Solution
No video signal at
 Check that the transmitter is a MultiView-II DVI-Tx type, with the proper option
the receiver
configured (-A, -S, SPDIF-mode, or –SAP) to match the receiver.
 Check that both units are powered and all necessary cables are firmly connected.
 Ensure receiver EQ and SKEW adjustments are set correctly. Use the Autoadjust mode (push up + down buttons simultaneously). If a manual adjustment is
necessary, change EQ settings slowly to avoid losing the picture completely.
 During initial installation of a MVII-DVI-Rx-1K receiver, it is best to start by using
Auto-Adjust mode. Once you have a video image, it’s much easier to fine-tune
the EQ setting to get the best possible image on your display.
 Make sure the twisted-pair cable is terminated correctly per the TIA/EIA 568B
wiring specification.
 Check that the display device is powered on and functioning.
 Check to ensure your chosen display is compatible with the format of the input
signal at the transmitter.
Poor video quality at
 Ensure receiver EQ and SKEW adjustments are set correctly. Change EQ
receiver
settings slowly while making manual adjustments.
 Check all cable connections.
 There may be a video-skew delay issue – your cable may have more than
65nSec of skew at its current length. If possible, use a shorter cable (or cut off
some excess “service-loop”).
 Check the twisted-pair pinout and also the connectors on the transmitter and
receiver for any bent pins or foreign objects wedged between contact pins.
Poor audio quality
 The audio output at the receiver is line-level only. An amplifier, or powered
speakers, are required. Make sure amplifier or speaker power is ON.
 Check input source levels from the source device. Ensure the audio source level
does not exceed the audio-input ratings for the transmitter (DVI-Tx). Clipping or
distortion can result.
 Audio is summed left and right for “-A” mode. If using a single channel, both audio
inputs must be connected at the transmitter end to obtain proper audio gain
through the link (approximately 1:1, input to output).
Serial
 Are the serial devices connected properly? Are the serial parameters correct for
communication
source/destination devices?
doesn’t work
 Are the serial cables terminated correctly? Is a null-modem cable required at the
correctly
TX or RX end?
 When using serial-capable receivers with video switches, distribution amps, or
multi-output transmitters, the serial data is sent transmit-only. Please take this
into account when trying to control displays or other devices. For assistance,
contact Technical Support.
 SAP units have a factory default baud rate of 9600 bps and use 3 wire (TX, RX,
GND) signals only. If necessary, use SAP-II serial commands to change the baud
rate to match your connected device.

DC Power Connector
Magenta provides ready-to-use power supplies for MultiView™ II products. However, if there is a reason a
substitute power supply must be used, then the following information is important for maintaining product
reliability and performance:
Magenta AC/DC Power supply output rating:
Regulated +5VDC @ 2.6Amps.
Power-input rating for MVII-DVI-Tx:
5VDC, 1.2Amps max.
The DC power input connector accepts an industry-standard coaxial-DC plug with the following specifications:






Coaxial power connector
OD = 5.5mm
ID = 2.5mm (accepted center-pin diameter)
Length = 11mm (overall length of insertable plug end)
Inner contact (pin-socket) = +5VDC
Outer contact (sleeve) = Ground
It is highly recommended that the inner contact (center-pin contact) of any mating DC plug utilize a “tuning-fork”
shaped design, rather than a plain barrel shape. The tuning-fork design greatly increases the reliability of the
power connection. The plain barrel style connector can cause intermittent operation, often resulting in
“mysterious” system problems that are difficult to identify.
Plain barrel center contact.

Supported Video Formats and Features
The following video formats are supported by the MVII-DVI-Tx and MVII-DVI-Rx-1K (combined) link.
Note that while the MVII-DVI-Tx can be used as a source for other types of MultiView receivers with VGA
outputs (for example, MVII-AK600DP), not every video format is guaranteed to work with any particular display.
Success greatly depends on the display’s internal VGA-scaler hardware. Actual testing with the source and
display for a specific application is highly recommended before deploying an entire system.

(SAP) Option Module Settings
Appendix B
(SAP) Option Module Settings
The SAP option module allows a bi-directional session to be established between a SAP-equipped transmitter
(MVII-DVI-Tx-SAP), and a specific SAP-equipped receiver even in a multiple-receiver daisy chain installation.
The SAP transmitter devices (MVII-DVI-Tx-SAP for example) do not have address DIP-switches. The factorydefault address of the transmitter is “0”.
The SAP receiver devices (MVII-DVI-Rx-1K-SAP for example) have address DIP-switches.
Each SAP-equipped receiver must have a unique address set first, via DIP-switch settings or by a serial
command entered directly at the receiver.
Once this has been done, a special “set destination address” command is sent into the transmitter to specify
which receiver to open a session with.
If the transmitter is commanded to use destination address 0 (zero), serial data will be broadcast to all
receivers. This is the factory-default behavior.
To set the SAP receiver’s address switches, you will need to open the receiver enclosure and set the DIPswitches directly on the SAP module. The DIP-switch has 8 switches, one for each address bit position. Use
the SAP addressing chart provided on the next page to determine the proper switch addresses.
All receivers must have a unique address. It is recommended to write the address on each receiver once this
step has been completed. It is also recommended to keep a list of receiver addresses and locations to make it
easier to determine which receiver/display is desired to communicate with.
To set SAP address DIP-switches (at SAP-receiver units):
1.
Remove the top cover assembly of the receiver.
2.
Locate the 8 position dipswitch on the internal daughterboard assembly and using the SAP-addressing
chart, set the receiver address as needed.
Figure 12: Internal Daughterboard Assembly with 8
Position Dipswitch
3.
Replace cover assembly and install unit.
Note: It is also possible to set a SAP receiver’s address by a serial-command entered at the receiver itself. In
this case, simply ensure all DIP switches are set to address 0 (zero).
Please also refer to the SAP II Programmer’s Guide for additional information on SAP related settings and
operation.

Mounting Kits
There are several kits available for mounting the DVI-TX:
Mounting Kit #
2211053-01
Description
Rigid-mount bracket.
This mounts a single device to a surface
(wall/desk/etc.).
Comes with 4 self-tapping screws.
8310207-01
1U Rack-mount Plate for standard 19” rack.
Mounts 4 devices in a 1U space.
Comes with (8) device-mounting screws, (4) rack-mounting screws.
8310208-01
2U Rack-mount Plate for standard 19” rack.
Mounts 8 devices in a 2U space.
Comes with (16) device-mounting screws, (4) rack-mounting screws.
Note: When installing DVI-TX devices in an area susceptible to elevated operating temperatures (near the
maximum specified operating temperature), it is important to give careful consideration to maintaining adequate
air flow. Within a rack assembly, cable bundles and other equipment in the same rack can impede proper
cooling. In some rack-mount applications you may even need to leave a 1U gap (using a blank filler plate)
between DVI-TX groups. For surface-mount applications, ensure the device will have adequate air circulation
and that air-vents on the enclosure are not blocked.
