About the Switcher
The ISM 482 is an eight-input, two-independently-scaled-output, video and stereo
or mono audio matrix switcher. Figure 1-1 shows a typical ISM 482 application.
The switchers accept high resolution RGB video, YUV (component) video,
S-video (Y/C), and composite video inputs; scale the inputs; and output RGBHV or
RGBS video and stereo audio. Triple-Action Switching™ (RGB delay) blanks the
screen during the switch to prevent distracting video glitches. The switcher’s two
independent scalers permit differing video formats on each input to be displayed
in different resolutions on different projectors.
Each video input is individually configurable to allow for different video formats.
The ISM allows analog RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB, and RGBcvS video, component
video, S-video, and composite video signals to be displayed on a device with a
fixed resolution and aspect ratio, such as a liquid crystal display (LCD) projector,
digital light processor (DLP) projector, or plasma display.
The ISM provides two separate outputs. The selected input can be switched to
either or both outputs. With an optional DVI output card, the ISM converts the
scaled image to DVI as an additional set of output 1 signals.
The switcher inputs all valid video signal formats on eight sets of five BNC
connectors. The ISM 482 scales the input up or down to a wide variety of output
resolutions and rates. The switcher outputs the scaled video, as RGBHV or RGBS,
on two sets of output connectors, consisting of five BNCs and a 15-pin HD
connector. These connectors share identical outputs.
Several of the output resolutions and rates include Extron’s Accu-RATE Frame
Lock™ (AFL™), a proprietary technology that locks the output frame rate to the
input rate, solving the image tearing problem that can result from different input
and output rates. The switcher features HDTV 576p, 720p, 1080p, and 1080i outputs.

Figure 1-1— Typical ISM 482 Integration Scaling Matrix Switcher
application
The ISM receives and outputs the stereo audio on 5-pole captive screw connectors.
For upscaling, the ISM 482 converts the horizontal and vertical sync timing and the
number of lines of the lower-resolution video input to match the native resolution
of the display. This produces an undistorted, brighter picture than an unscaled
input would.
For downscaling, the ISM 482 accepts any computer resolution, up to 1600 x 1200,
with horizontal scan rates up to 100 kHz and vertical scan rates up to 120 Hz, and
converts the input to match the native resolution of the display.
The switcher is ideal for displaying images on projectors with limited display
resolutions, such as LCD projectors, DLP projectors, and plasma projectors.
The switcher features built-in test patterns to aid in monitor or projector set-up and
evaluation.
The switcher is housed in a rack-mountable, 3U high, 17.5" wide, metal enclosure.
The ISM has an internal 100VAC to 240VAC, 50/60 Hz, 30 watts power supply that
provides worldwide power compatibility.
Integration Scaling Matrix Switcher • Introduction

Introduction, cont’d
Features
Inputs —
Video inputs — The ISM switches among eight fully-configurable RGB, HDTV
component video, component video, S-video, and composite video inputs on
five BNC connectors per input.
Audio inputs — The ISM switches among eight balanced or unbalanced stereo or
mono audio inputs on 5-pole captive screw connectors.
Outputs —
Standard video outputs — The ISM outputs individually scaled video signals as
RGBHV or RGBS. Two sets of BNC connectors and two 15-pin HD
connectors are provided. One set of BNC connectors and one 15-pin HD
connector display the output 1 image, and the other set of BNC connectors
and 15-pin HD connector display the output 2 image.
Optional DVI video output — If you install the optional DVI output card, a
single buffered DVI-D signal can be output as an additional output 1 image.
For output resolutions with less than 1024 pixels horizontally, the optional
DVI output’s true horizontal resolution is limited to 1024 pixels. For the 1365
x 1024, 1080p, and 1080i output resolutions, the optional DVI output’s true
horizontal resolution is limited to 1280 pixels. The DVI card outputs all other
selected resolutions normally. See the table on page 3-10.
Audio outputs — The ISM outputs the selected unamplified, line level, balanced
or unbalanced stereo or mono audio on 5-pole captive screw connectors.
Accu-RATE Frame Lock™ (AFL™) — A patented technology exclusive to Extron
that solves frame rate conversion issues experienced by video scalers. When
video input and output refresh rates differ, occasionally the two rates cross
over each other. The result is a glitch or image freeze on the display. AFL
solves this problem by locking the output frame rate to the input frame rate.
Dynamic Motion Interpolation™ (DMI™) — This video processing technique is
an advanced motion prediction and compensation method that treats motion
content and still content with different algorithms to yield high fidelity images.
3:2 pulldown detection for NTSC video sources and 2:2 film detection for PAL —
These advanced, patent pending, film mode processing features help
maximize image detail and sharpness for video sources that originated from
film. When film is converted to NTSC video, the film frame rate has to be
matched to the video frame rate in a process called 3:2 pulldown. Jaggies and
other image artifacts can result if conventional deinterlacing techniques are
used on film-source video. The ISM’s advanced film mode processing
recognizes signals that originated from film. The ISM then applies video
processing algorithms that optimize the conversion of video that was made
with the 3:2 pulldown process. This results in richly detailed images with
sharply defined lines.
A similar process, 2:2 film detection, is used for PAL film-source video.
Audio follow and breakaway — Audio switching can follow its corresponding
video input signal or it can be broken away from the video input. Audio
breakaway switching can be done via front panel control or under RS-232 or
Ethernet remote control.
1-4
Integration Scaling Matrix Switcher • Introduction
Audio gain/attenuation — Users can set the input level of audio gain or
attenuation (-24 dB to +9 dB) via the RS-232 port, Ethernet link, or from the
front panel. Individual input audio levels can be adjusted so there is no
noticeable volume difference between sources.
Ethernet port — Supports connection to an Ethernet LAN so that the switcher can
be accessed and operated from anywhere in the world with a computer
using a standard Internet browser.
Quad-standard video decoder — The switcher uses a digital, four-line adaptive
comb filter that can decode NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43, PAL, and SECAM.
Test patterns — The switcher features built-in test patterns to aid in monitor or
projector setup and evaluation.
Blue mode — The switcher can be set to output the blue video signal and sync
signal(s) only, to help installers calibrate the monitor or projector.
Triple-Action Switching™ (RGB delay) — RGB delay mutes the R, G, and B video
planes to blank the screen while the scaler locks to the new sync, so that a
noise-filled scramble is not shown on the monitor during the transition. The
time delay between the RGB and sync signals is user adjustable up to five
seconds under front panel, Simple Instruction Set (SIS™), and Windows
program control.
Auto memories — The eight inputs support 16 auto-recall memories each, based on
the incoming frequency. Information on sizing, centering, detail, contrast,
and brightness is saved.
Auto Image™ — The auto imaging feature automatically sizes and centers the
selected input to fill the screen. Auto imaging can be selected for individual
inputs as desired or set to automatically size and center each new input
selection.
Memory presets — The ISM 482 has memory for up to 128 presets that allow the
user to use RS-232 commands to save and recall color, tint, contrast,
brightness, centering, sizing, and filtering information.
Aspect ratio memories — Three memories for each input save different color, tint,
contrast, brightness, detail, size, and centering settings.
Freeze mode (under SIS and Windows program control only) — Locks the output
display to the selected image. Once frozen, an input can be removed without
losing the output image. This feature lets the ISM store a still image.
Rack mounting — The 3U high switcher can be mounted in any conventional 19"
wide rack.

Installation
Mounting the Switcher
Four uninstalled rubber feet are included with the switcher. If you are going to
rack mount the switcher, mount it before you cable it (see “Rack mounting”,
below), and do not install the rubber feet. If you are not rack mounting the
switcher, see “Tabletop placement” below.
Tabletop placement
For tabletop placement, install the self-adhesive rubber feet/pads (provided) onto
the four corners of the bottom of the switcher.
Rack mounting
UL requirements
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) requirements pertain to the
installation of the switcher into a rack (figure 2-1).
2-2
1.
Elevated operating ambient temperature — If the equipment is installed in a
closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the
rack environment may be greater than room ambient temperature.
Therefore, install the switcher in an environment compatible with the
maximum ambient temperature (Tma = +122 °F, +50 °C) specified by Extron.
2.
Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in a rack so that the amount of air
flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
3.
Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack so that a hazardous
condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
4.
Circuit overloading — Connect the equipment to the supply circuit and
consider the effect that circuit overloading might have on overcurrent
protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment
nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
5.
Reliable earthing (grounding) — Maintain reliable grounding of rackmounted equipment. Pay particular attention to supply connections other
than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g., use of power strips).

Cabling and RJ-45 connector wiring
It is vital that your Ethernet cables be the correct cables, and that they be properly
terminated with the correct pinout.
Choosing a network cable
Ethernet links use Category (CAT) 3, 4, 5, 5e, or 6, unshielded twisted pair (UTP) or
shielded twisted pair (STP) cables, terminated with RJ-45 connectors. Ethernet
cables are limited to 328' (100 m).
Do not use standard telephone cables. Telephone cables will not support
Ethernet or Fast Ethernet.
Do not stretch or bend cables. Transmission errors can occur.
The cable used depends on your network speed. The ISM supports both 10 Mbps
(10Base-T — Ethernet) and 100 Mbps (100Base-T — Fast Ethernet), half-duplex and
full-duplex, Ethernet connections.
•
10Base-T Ethernet requires, at a minimum, CAT 3 UTP or STP cable.
•
100Base-T Fast Ethernet requires, at a minimum, CAT 5 UTP or STP cable.
Wiring the network cable
The cable can be terminated as either a patch cable or a crossover cable (figure 2-8)
and must be properly terminated for your application:
•
Patch (straight) cable — Connection of the ISM to an Ethernet hub, router, or
switcher that also hosts a controlling computer
•
Crossover cable — Direct connection between the ISM and a controlling
computer

Front Panel Operations
The following paragraphs detail the power-up process and then describe the menu
system, the picture adjustments, and selection of executive mode.
Power
Power is automatically applied when the power cord is connected to an AC source.
When AC power is applied, the switcher performs a self-test that blinks all of the
front panel LEDs and then lights only the LEDs for the previously selected output
and the tied input. The self-test also displays the model name, part number, and
the firmware version in the LCD display. After approximately 2 seconds, the LCD
reverts to its default display cycle, alternating between two displays: one showing
the inputs selected for outputs 1 and output 2, and the other showing the selected
output rates (figure 3-6). An error-free power up self-test sequence leaves all of the
LEDs off, with the exception of the selected output’s and input’s LEDs, off and the
LCD cycling through the default displays.

✝ The output refresh rate is auto-selected, based on the video refresh rate of input 1.
•
For output resolutions with less than 1024 pixels horizontally, the
optional DVI output’s true horizontal resolution is limited to 1024 pixels.
The vertical resolution is the selected vertical resolution. For these
resolutions, the ISM DVI output is 1024 x {selected vertical size}. For
example, if the output resolution is set to 640 x 480, the DVI output
card’s actual resolution is 1024 × 480.
•
For the 1365 x 1024, 1080p, and 1080i output resolutions, the optional
DVI output’s true horizontal resolution is limited to 1280 pixels. For
these resolutions, the ISM DVI output is 1280 x {selected vertical size}.
For example, if the output resolution is set to 1080p, the DVI output
card’s actual resolution is 1280 x 1080.
•
The DVI card outputs all other selected resolutions normally.

Test Pattern submenu
The Test Pattern submenu lets you select from among several test patterns and
assign the selected pattern to an output. The test patterns are helpful when
adjusting the connected displays for color, convergence, focus, resolution, contrast,
grayscale, and aspect ratio.
Use the Adjust knob to select a test pattern. The options are: Color Bars,
crosshatch, 4 x 4 crosshatch, grayscale, crop, alternating pixels, film aspect ratios
1.78, 1.85, 2.35, and ramp.
Use the Adjust knob to assign the output(s) for the selected test pattern. Select
among neither output (both off), output 2, output 1, or both outputs.
Blue-Only Mode and Edge Smoothing submenu
The Blue-Only Mode and Edge Smoothing submenu lets you turn the blue mode
and edge smoothing features on and off. Blue-only mode is helpful in the setup of
the color and tint of the incoming video signal. In the blue-only mode, only the
sync and blue video signals are passed to the display. Edge enhancement mode
smooths edges of a picture by minimizing the differences between pixels.
Use the Adjust knob to assign Blue-Only Mode to neither output (both off),
output 2, output 1, or both outputs. The default is Off.
Use the Adjust knob to assign Edge Smoothing to neither output (both off),
output 2, output 1, or both outputs. The default is Off.
Blanking submenu
The Output Blanking submenu displays and allows you to adjust the top and
bottom line blanking on the output monitors within a range of 0 to 200 lines.
During scaling, captioning and tapehead switching in the video’s blanking area
may show up as picture noise. Using blanking, you can add black lines at the top
and bottom edges of the image to eliminate edge noise.

RGB Delay submenu
The RGB Delay submenu displays and lets you set the RGB delay when a switch is
made. With RGB delay, sync is never removed from the display. Rather, the ISM
blanks the RGB (video) outputs while the scaler locks to the new sync, and then
switches the RGB signals. This allows a brief delay for the displays to adjust to the
new sync timing before displaying the new picture, which appears without
glitches. RGB delay is also known as Triple-Action Switching™ or video mute
switching.
Use the Adjust knob to select the blanking period (RGB delay time) for output 1
from 0 seconds to 5 seconds in 0.1 second steps. The default is 0.2 seconds.
Use the Adjust knob to select the blanking period for output 2.

Integration Scaling Matrix Switcher • Operation
Auto Imaging and Auto Memories submenu
The Auto Imaging and Auto Memories submenu provides a means to turn the auto
imaging and auto presets features on or off for all input selections.
If auto imaging is set to on, the ISM automatically sizes and centers the selected
input to fill the screen when a new frequency is input. If auto imaging is set to off,
the ISM sizes and centers the selected input only when it is commanded using the
input button. See “Auto imaging an input”, earlier in this chapter. Rotate the
Adjust knob to toggle auto imaging on or off for all input selections.
The auto memories feature saves and recalls centering and sizing information,
based on the input frequency. With some control systems, the delay involved in
recalling the memory can be a problem, so it may improve system performance to
turn auto memories off. Rotate the Adjust knob to toggle auto memories on or
off.
Enhanced Mode submenu
The Enhanced Mode submenu provides a means to turn enhanced mode on or off.
Enhanced mode is an automatic gain control for S-video or composite video input
signals scaled and applied to an output. If the input signal level is too weak, the
signal gain is increased; if the input signal level is strong, the signal gain is
decreased.
Use either the Adjust or Adjust knob to turn on enhanced mode for neither
output (off for both), output 2, output 1, or both outputs. The default is Off for
both.
Enhanced mode is effective only for S-video and composite video input signals.
Pixel Phase submenu
The Pixel Phase submenu displays and lets you set the pixel phase, which is the
timing of the digital scaler’s sampling. Sampling at the optimum pixel phase
results in a brighter scaled output.

PAL Film Mode submenu
The PAL Film Mode submenu lets you turn PAL film mode on and off for the
selected input. The PAL film mode should be used for a video source that is PAL
video that originated from film. PAL film mode applies video processing
algorithms that optimize the conversion of video that was made with the 2:2
pulldown (PAL video from film) process.
Use either the Adjust knob or the Adjust knob to select On or Off. Select other
inputs as necessary to configure.
Reset submenu
The Reset submenu resets all ISM 482 settings and adjustments to the default
values and erases all presets. The front panel reset performs the same functions as
the Esc zXXX SIS command (see chapter 4, “Programmer’s Guide”).
Reset the switcher by pressing and holding the Black/Mute button while this
submenu is active. The LCD displays Unit Reset to Factory Defaults when the

up to 3 digits total per field, are optional. Values of 256 and above are invalid.
If the local system administrators have not changed the value, the factoryspecified default, 192.168.254.254, is the correct value for this field.
The hardware address is hardcoded and cannot be changed.
Optimizing the Video
Perform the following steps, in sequence, after you have installed the ISM. This
procedure will help you to configure the switcher for the best settings for your
display environment. In a multi-screen environment, perform this procedure for
each display.
See “Advanced Configuration menu”, earlier in this chapter, to select and output a
test pattern and to select and output blue-only video.
See “Picture adjustments”, earlier in this chapter, to make adjustments to the
picture quality.
See “User Presets menu”, earlier in this chapter, to save presets.
3-18
Integration Scaling Matrix Switcher • Operation
1.
If you are using a digital display such as an LCD or DLP projector, use the
alternating pixels test pattern as a reference to adjust the phase and dot clock
on the display devices. Proceed to step 2.
If you are using a CRT display, use the cross hatch test pattern as a reference
to converge the display.
2.
Set the ISM to output either the crop test pattern for 4:3 video or the
appropriate aspect ratio test pattern.
3.
Use the display’s positioning controls to position the image so that you can
see all sides of the test pattern on the display.
For the best results of this optimizing procedure, do not use the ISM’s
centering controls to position the image.
4.
Select an input. Use the ISM’s size and center functions to fill the crop or
aspect ratio test pattern.
If the input source is a DVD, set the DVD player to output a 16:9 aspect ratio
(see “Setting up a DVD source” below) before sizing the image using the
ISM’s size function to correct the aspect ratio.
When you are sizing and centering a letterbox movie video source, increasing
the brightness on the ISM makes it easier to see the top and bottom of the
active video.
5.
If the input source is RGB, use the horizontal and vertical detail adjustments
to increase the sharpness.
6.
For S-video and composite video inputs, set the ISM to output blue-only
video and to output the Color Bars test pattern. Using the blue Color Bars as
a reference, use the ISM’s color and tint controls to adjust the video’s color
and tint.
7.
For RGB video inputs, set brightness and contrast levels. See “Picture
adjustments”, earlier in this chapter.
8.
Save this setting into one of the user memories using the User Presets menu.
See “User Presets menu”, earlier in this chapter.
Setting up a DVD source
To get the best results when using a DVD as a video source, Extron recommends
that the DVD player itself be set up to output an aspect ratio of 16:9 and not 4:3.
Because all DVDs are mastered as 16:9, having them set up for anything else causes
the player to internally scale and compress the signal. The DVD player’s scaling
and compression defeats the advantage of having 3-2 pulldown detection in the
ISM.
All sizing adjustments to correct the aspect ratio should be done using the ISM.
To change the output aspect ratio of most DVD players:
1.
Enter the DVD player’s setup or action menu while the disc is stopped.
2.
Select the 16:9 aspect ratio.

Optimizing the Audio
Each individual input audio level can be adjusted within a range of -24 dB to +9 dB,
so there are no noticeable volume differences between sources and for the best
headroom and signal-to-noise ratio. Adjust the audio gain and attenuation as
follows:
1.
Connect audio sources to all desired inputs and connect the audio outputs to
output devices such as audio players. See “Input connections” and “Standard
output connections” in chapter 2, “Installation”. For best results, wire all of
the inputs and the outputs unbalanced.
2.
Power on the audio sources, the switcher, and the audio players.
3.
Switch among the inputs (see “Selecting an input”, earlier in this chapter),
listening to the audio with a critical ear or measuring the output audio level
with test equipment, such as a VU meter.
4.
As necessary, adjust the audio level of each input (see “Video & Audio
Configuration menu”, earlier in this chapter) so that the output level is
approximately the same for all selected inputs.
Troubleshooting
The following tips may help you in troubleshooting.
•
Some symptoms may resemble others, so you may want to look through all
of the examples before attempting to solve the problem.
•
Be prepared to backtrack in case the action taken does not solve the problem.
•
It may help to keep notes and sketches in case the troubleshooting process
gets lengthy. This will also give you something to discuss if you call for
technical support.
•
Try simplifying the system by eliminating components that may have
introduced the problem or made it more complicated.
•
For sync-related problems: Portable digital projectors are designed to operate
close to the video source. Sync problems may result from using long cables
or from improper termination. A sync adapter, such as Extron’s ASTA (active
sync termination adapter), may help solve these problems.
•
For LCD and DLP projectors and plasma displays: In addition to the syncrelated information above, check the user’s manual that came with the
projector for troubleshooting tips, as well as for settings and adjustments.
Each manufacturer may have its own terms, so look for terms like “auto
setup”, “auto sync”, “pixel phase”, and “tracking”.
General checks
3-20
1.
Ensure that all devices are plugged in and powered on. The switcher is
receiving power if the LCD is displaying the default display cycle.
2.
Ensure an active input is selected on the switcher.
3.
Ensure that the proper signal format is supplied.
4.
Check the cabling and make corrections as necessary.
5.
Call the Extron S3 Sales & Technical Support Hotline if necessary.

Ethernet connection
The cable can be terminated as either a patch cable or a crossover cable (figure 4-2)
and must be properly terminated for your application:
•
Patch (straight) cable — Connection of the ISM to an Ethernet hub, router, or
switcher that also hosts a controlling computer
•
Crossover cable — Direct connection between the ISM and a computer
Default address
To access the switcher via the Ethernet port, you need the switcher’s IP address. If
the address has been changed to an address comprised of words and characters, the
actual numeric IP address can be determined using the front panel (see “IP
information” in chapter 3, “Operation”) or the Ping utility (see “Ping to determine
the switcher’s IP address” or “Ping to determine the Web IP address” in appendix
A, “Ethernet Connection”, for more details). If the address has not been changed,
the factory-specified default is 192.168.254.254.

Switcher-Initiated Messages
When a local event such as power-up or a front panel operation occurs, the
switcher responds by sending a message to the host. The switcher-initiated
messages are listed in the following pages. The messages are underlined.
The switcher does not expect a response from the host; but, for example, the host
program might request a new status.

Host-to-Switcher Instructions
The switcher accepts SIS commands through its RS-232 port and/or its Ethernet
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 switcher 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.
Switcher error responses
When the switcher receives an SIS command and determines that it is valid, it
performs the command and sends a response to the host device. If the switcher is
unable to perform the command because the command is invalid or contains
invalid parameters, the switcher returns an error response to the host. The error
response codes are:
E01 — Invalid input channel number (too large)
E10 — Invalid command
E11 — Invalid preset number (zero or too large)
E12 — Invalid output number (zero or too large)
E13 — Invalid value (out of range)
Using the command/response table
The command/response table begins on the next page. Except for the gain and
attenuation settings and the filter settings, upper or lower case letters are acceptable
in the command field. Command and response examples are shown throughout
the table.
The table below shows the hexadecimal equivalent of each ASCII command.
With the exception of the audio gain and attenuation (G and g) and horizontal
and vertical filtering (D and d)
commands, the SIS commands
ASCII to HEX Conversion Table
are not case sensitive.

Control Software for Windows®
The Windows-based Extron ISSISM Control Program communicates with the
switcher via the Ethernet LAN port or the rear panel Remote RS-232/RS-422 port to
provide an easy way to set up and operate the switcher. The program is compatible
with Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Updates to these programs can be
downloaded from the Extron Web site (http://www.extron.com).
Installing the software
The program is contained on the Extron Software Products CD-ROM. Install the
software as follows:
1.
Insert the CD-ROM into the drive. The installation program should start
automatically. If it does not self-start, run Launch.exe from the CD.
The Extron software CD window appears (figure 5-1).
Figure 5-1 — Software CD window
2.
Click the Software tab (figure 5-1).
3.
Scroll to the desired program and click Install (figure 5-2).
Figure 5-2 — Software installation

4.
Follow the on-screen instructions. By default, the installation of the
installation routine creates a C:\Program Files\Extron\ISSISM directory, and
it places the following five icons into a group folder named “Extron

Software operation via Ethernet
When an ISM is connected to an Ethernet WAN or LAN, any number of users can
operate it, locally or remotely, using the ISS/ISM Control Program. See “Ethernet
connection” in chapter 2, “Installation”, for installation details
Connection to the switcher via the Ethernet is password protected. There are two
levels of password protection: administrator and user. Administrators have full
access to all ISM switching capabilities and editing functions. Users can select
video and/or audio for output, select inputs and outputs, select test patterns, set
RGB and audio mutes, select a blue screen, and view all settings with the exception
of passwords. If the same passwords or no password is required for logging on, all
personnel log on with administrator privileges. Fields and functions that exceed
user privileges are grayed out in the ISS/ISM Control Program when the operator

Open the switcher. See “Opening and Closing the Switcher” on page 7-2.
CAUTION
2.
Do not touch any switches or other electronic components inside the
ISM. Doing so could damage the ISM. Electrostatic discharge (ESD)
can damage IC chips even though you cannot feel it. You must be
electrically grounded before proceeding with any electronic component
replacement. A grounding wrist strap is recommended.
Locate the DVI output card connector opening on the rear panel and the
DVI output card connector J14. When viewed from the front, connector J14
is in the far left corner of the main circuit board (figure 7-3).

Integration Scaling Matrix Switcher • Ethernet Connection
Determining Default Addresses
To access the ISM switcher via the Ethernet port, you need the Extron ISM IP
address. If the address has been changed to an address comprised of words and
characters, the actual numeric IP address can be determined using the Ping utility.
If the address has not been changed, the factory-specified default is 192.168.254.254.
Ping can also be used to test the Ethernet link to the ISM.
Pinging to determine the switcher’s IP address
The Microsoft Ping utility is available at the DOS prompt. Ping tests the Ethernet
interface between the computer and the ISM. Ping can also be used to determine
the actual numeric IP address from an alias and to determine the Web address.
Access the DOS prompt and ping the switcher as follows:
1.
Click Start > Run.
2.
At the Open prompt, type command.
3.
Click the OK button.
4.
At the DOS prompt, type ping {IP address} and press the keyboard
Enter key ( Enter ). The computer returns a display similar to figure A-2.
The line Pinging ... reports the actual numeric IP address, regardless of
whether you entered the actual numeric IP address or an alias name.

Pinging to determine the Web IP address
The Ping utility has a modifier, -a, that directs the command to return the Web
address rather than the numeric IP address.
At the DOS prompt, type ping -a {IP address} and then press Enter . The
computer’s return display is similar to the Ping response shown in figure A-2,
except that when you specify the -a modifier, the line Pinging mail... reports the
Web IP address rather than the numeric IP address, regardless of whether you
entered the actual numeric IP address or an alias name.

Connecting as a Telnet Client
The Microsoft Telnet utility is available from the DOS prompt. Telnet allows you to
input SIS commands to the ISM from the PC via Ethernet.
Access the DOS prompt and start Telnet as follows:
1.
Click Start > Run.
2.
At the Open prompt, type command.
3.
Click the OK button.
4.
At the DOS prompt, type telnet and press
display similar to figure A-3.

Telnet tips
It is not the intention of this manual to detail all of the operations and functionality
of Telnet; however, some basic level of understanding is necessary for operating the
ISS via Telnet.
Open
Connect to the ISM using the Open command. Once you are connected to the
switcher, you can enter the SIS commands the same way that you would if you
were using the RS-232 link.
Connect to the ISM as follows:
1.
At the Telnet prompt, type open {IP address} and then press
Enter
.
If the switcher is not password protected, no further prompts are displayed
until you break or disconnect the connection to the ISM.
If the switcher is password protected, Telnet displays the password prompt.
2.
If necessary, at the password prompt, type the appropriate password and then
press Enter .
Connection to the switcher via the Ethernet can be password protected. There
are two levels of password protection: administrator and user. A person
logged on as an administrator has full access to all ISM switching capabilities
and editing functions. Users can select video and/or audio for output, select
test patterns, set RGB and audio mutes, select a blue screen, and view all
settings with the exception of passwords. By default, the ISM is shipped with
no password assigned.
A-4
Integration Scaling Matrix Switcher • Ethernet Connection
Once you are logged in, the ISM returns either Login Administrator or
Login User. No further prompts are displayed until you break or disconnect
the connection to the ISM.
Escape character and Esc key
When Telnet is first started, the utility advises that the Escape character is ‘Ctrl+]’.
Many SIS commands include the keyboard Esc key. Consequently, some confusion
may exist between the Escape character and the Escape key.
The Telnet Escape character is a key combination, the Ctrl key and the ] key
pressed simultaneously, that returns you to the Telnet prompt while leaving the
connection to the ISM intact.
The Escape key is the
Esc
key on the computer keyboard.
Local echo
Once the computer is connected to the ISM, by default Telnet does not display your
keystrokes on the screen. SIS commands are typed in blindly and the SIS responses
are displayed on the screen. To command Telnet to show keystrokes, type set
local_echo at the Telnet prompt, and then press Enter before you open the
connection to the switcher.
With local echo turned on, keystrokes and the switcher’s response are displayed on
the same line. For example: 1*1!In1 Out1 All, where 1*1! is the SIS command and
In1 Out1 All is the response.
With local echo turned on, all keystrokes are displayed, even those that should be
masked, such as the password entry. For example, when entering a password with
local echo turned on, you see a display such as a*d*m*i*n*, where admin is the
keyed in password and ***** is the masked response.
Local echo can be turned off by typing unset local_echo and then pressing
Enter at the Telnet prompt. If you are connected to the ISM and need to access the
Telnet prompt to turn local echo off, type the Escape character ( Ctrl + ] ).
Set carriage return-line feed
Unless commanded otherwise, Telnet transmits a line feed character only (no
carriage return) to the connected ISM when you press the Enter key. This is the
correct setting for SIS communication with the switcher. The Telnet set crlf
command forces Telnet to transmit carriage return and line feed characters when
Enter is pressed, but if crlf is set, the SIS link with the switcher does not function
properly. Do not set crlf on. If necessary, issue the unset crlf command to turn
off crlf.
Close
To close the link to the switcher, access the Telnet prompt by typing the Escape
character ( Ctrl + ] ). At the Telnet prompt, type close and then press Enter .
Help
For Telnet command definitions, at the Telnet prompt, type ? and then press
Enter
.
Quit
Exit the Telnet utility by typing quit and then press Enter at the Telnet prompt. If
you are connected to the ISM, access the Telnet prompt beforehand by typing the
Escape character ( Ctrl + ] ).
