MX-CPU2
MX-CPU2 Processor Board for Modular Matrix Frames
The Lightware MX-CPU2 board is a direct replacement of the original
CPU board housed in our Hybrid Modular matrix frames. It has been
upgraded with several unique features to help improve our new range of
digital video/audio routing and extension systems.
Additional input and output ports fully support DVI and 3D HDMI
signals with or without HDCP encryption. The test input and preview
output ports turn an existing 16x16 matrix to a 17x17 and an existing
32x32 to a 33x33. Upgrading an existing router with MX-CPU2 is a simple
board replacement, with only two screws to undo.

Frame Detector and Input Signal Analysis are uniquely available
in Lightware matrices for all input boards when using MX-CPU2. This
function determines the exact video format that is sent by the source and
therefore helps to identify many potential issues. The signal analyzer
displays detailed information regarding an incoming video and audio
signal such as timing, frequencies, scan mode, HDCP encryption, color
range, color space and audio sample rate. In the Frame Detector window
the parameters are displayed on an intuitive graphical interface.

Advanced EDID Management, Lightware’s proprietary technology, has
been further upgraded. It stores more than 100 user EDID files and offers various
factory preloaded versions including all standard DVI resolutions. HDMI EDID
with various audio channels and codecs are also supported, plus analog
VESA and non-standard analog VGA EDID formats. Dual-Link DVI resolutions
including the latest 4K projector’s requirements are also incorporated. With the
supplied Lightware Device Controller software, which includes our Advanced
EDID Editor option, users can create their own EDID file, send by email,
upload to any Lightware product or modify existing EDID data read from any
projector or monitor. It supports .bin, .dat and .edid file formats allowing system
engineers to generate EDID files for 3rd party manufacturer’s AV products.

Pixel Accurate Reclocking is available on all inputs and outputs,
including the test input and preview output ports on the MX-CPU2 board.
This provides an exceptional signal regeneration capability. The circuitry
cleans the signal from noise and jitter caused by long cable runs, which
makes the output signal stable with sharp transitions and accurate timing.

Thanks to the CPU2, our Genlock switch function has been introduced
to our new router frames. This feature was designed to integrate Lightware
matrix switches in rental and staging and broadcast systems. The routers
switch time can be manually set up to take place during the blanking
interval, or simply according to the SMPTE recommendation - RP-168.
Many types of external sync signals can be fed through the BNC connectors.
For example, Bi level sync, Tri level sync and TTL sync. In addition to the
external BNC connector, the routers can lock to any incoming video signal
applied to any input port. Lightware has also extended the range of possible
sync frequencies and allows synchronized vertical interval switching for all
SMPTE and non-SMPTE standard signals. For example, VESA, 3D and
other non-standardized computer resolutions are supported.

HDCP compatibility: all Lightware matrix router frames and relevant
I/O boards are compatible with HDCP encrypted sources and displays.
Installing a complex AV system with both HDCP and non HDCP
components becomes easy and with our non-blocking architecture, HDCP
and non-HDCP boards are now compatible within the same chassis.
A red screen alert is shown when protected content is
switched to a non-compliant display. Lightware Visual
Engineering is a legal HDCP adopter, and has developed
several functions that helps to solve HDCP related problems:
HDCP key caching is the technique introduced in early
2009 that validates all the display keys in an AV system
during system boot up and keeps them constantly available
for sources. This method eliminates an HDCP handshake at
every switch and keeps all sources sending uninterrupted
signals. Similar to fixing an EDID on input ports, the whole
video and audio system will be free from black displays, 5..8
second blinking screens and dropped signals that are all too
common in many switching and distribution products.
HDCP enabling/disabling function turns off HDCP
capability on individual input ports while keeping other
inputs HDCP compliant. Some computers choose to encrypt
their output even when unprotected content is displayed,
such as desktop images or presentations. This function
forces the source to send an unencrypted signal if the
content itself is also unencrypted.
Various Control options have been introduced to ease system
control, setup, maintenance and troubleshooting. A ruggedized Ethercon
connector proves a reliable connection to the LAN allowing multiple TCP/
IP and WEB controls simultaneously and RS-232 connector is provided
for 3rd party systems.
