IMPORTANT: Always ensure
you are using shielded cables.
Cable type and distance rules
INDEX
• Cable screening/shielding is required. The best cable shielding specifications for use
with the DDX system are: S/FTP, S/STP or PiMF.
• Extension distances up to 50m are supported with single uninterrupted runs of
recommended cable (shielded CAT6a or CAT7 cable).
• CAT5 or CAT5e cables must NOT be used with this product.
• Overall cable runs must be reduced by 5m for each additional cable coupling.
• All patch cables should be as short as possible and should be no longer than 2m.
• It is recommended that Adder shielded CAT7 cables are used for maximum
performance.
CONFIGURATION
If required, computers and consoles can be individually connected
in order to take advantage of the DDX extender properties
without the switching.
OPERATION
Thank you for choosing the AdderView DDX system. This adaptive system makes
sharing numerous host computers among multiple users straightforward and flexible.
Every computer is linked, via its USB and video ports, to a compact DDX-CAM
module while each set of peripherals are connected to a DDX-USR module (to form
Consoles).
The various computers and consoles are then linked, via CAT6a or CAT7 cable
with S/FTP, S/STP or PiMF shielding (see Appendix 1 for details), to a central
DDX switch. Each user can then, subject to the privileges granted by the admin, gain
quick access to any of the required computers.

INSTALLATION
Introduction
An integral part of DDX switches is the DDX Matrix, a browser-based configuration
and management tool that allows one or more remote admin user(s) to monitor
and maintain all aspects of operation.

The DDX switch uses a system of hierarchal Access permissions to mediate between
numerous consoles and multiple computers. Each console is granted the use of up to
four types of access permissions to each computer, most of which influence how other
users can gain simultaneous access to the same computer. The four access permissions,
and their effects on other console users are as follows:

Please consider the following important points when planning the position of the
AdderView DDX modules:
• If used, position the DDX switch in a central position that serves the host computer
systems and user modules without exceeding the maximum link lengths. It will also
require a source of mains power.
• Situate each DDX-USR module close to the peripherals to which it will be connected
and near to a source of mains power.
• Consult the precautions listed within the Safety information section.

INSTALLATION
Each DDX-CAM module requires a single USB connection to the computer. This
provides essential power for the DDX-CAM module in addition to the USB signals. Each
DDX-USR module acts as a USB 2.0 hub and thus provides four sockets for peripherals.
OPERATION
Connections do not need to be carried out in the order given within this guide, however,
where possible connect the power in as a final step. Connections are split into the
following three areas:
• Computer connections - a DDX-CAM module links to each host computer.
• Switch connections - when used, a DDX switch unit sits at the heart of the system.
• Console connections - the peripherals (keyboard, display, etc.) connect to DDX-USR modules.

OPERATION
Each DDX switch is supplied with a single power adapter but offers the facility to use
a second input in order to provide operational redundancy. The DDX unit can operate
perfectly well from a single power adapter operating alone. When two adapters are
connected, the unit will spread its load between them; should one power input fail, 100%
of the load will be transferred to the other power adapter without a break in operation.
Remote checking of the power inputs is possible at any time via the browser interface see Maintenance > Diagnostics for details.
There is no on/off switch on the DDX unit, so operation begins as soon as power is
applied at either port.

ACCESSING DDX MATRIX
CONFIGURATION
OPERATION
FURTHER
INFORMATION
To temporarily connect a computer
to the network port
1 If you need to make a temporary
connection for configuration purposes,
use a standard patch cable (crossover or straight connections are both
supported) to link the Ethernet 10/100
network port (
) on the front panel
of the DDX switch to your computer’s
network port.
INDEX
To access DDX Matrix
1 Use a computer that is directly or indirectly (i.e. via a network switch) connected to the DDX switch. If you need to
make a temporary connection, see right Ü 2 Run a web browser on your computer and enter the IP address of the DDX switch. The DDX switch uses the Universal
Plug and Play (UPnP) protocol to attempt contact with a valid DHCP server to determine a suitable IP address. If a
DHCP server cannot be located then the switch will automatically fall back to a link-local IP address (in the range
169.254.1.0 thru 169.254.254.255).
Whichever method the switch uses, the initial IP address can be discovered either:
• Using the Windows network browser (of a computer connected to the same sub network or directly to the switch),
or
• In the lower right corner of the OSD screen (of a console connected to one of the user ports) see Viewing the OSD.
Note: For security, DDX Matrix uses HTTPS by default with a self-signed certificate - Please ignore any warnings that may be
displayed by your web browser.
3 If requested, enter your username and password to log on.
Note:The default username and password are admin and password respectively.

• Use Full Grid - when set to On, if you have 4, 9 or 16 computers connected, the OSD will use the bottom right portion
of the screen as a square computer thumbnail, instead of reserving it for the system information. A small tab appears
in the top right corner of the OSD if “Show System Info” is On, showing the IP address and an icon denoting any
compatibility issues (green tick for no issues, yellow warning for upgrade recommended and a red warning for upgrade
required).
Note:This option will be hidden if Auto Layout is set to Off.

USB Improvements
Version 2.0 of the DDX Switch firmware has the following improvements in USB
support over the original v1.03:
• Touchscreens that advertise compatibility with windows 8 are now supported. Any
touchscreens that use proprietary drivers or do not declare windows 8 support are
not supported. Multiple touchscreens are now merged into the combined HID device
that the transmitter reports.
• You can use the touchscreen within the OSD display however you still need to type a
hotkey sequence currently Ctrl+Alt+M in order to raise the OSD. It is not possible to
use a touchscreen gesture to raise the OSD.
• The Adder Free-Flow mouse reported by the CCS-PRO4 is now merged so as only
one Free-Flow mouse is reported by the transmitter. Previously, if four receivers
were connected to the CCS-PRO4, four different Free-Flow mice would be reported
meaning that no other non-emulated USB device could be connected to the receivers.
• Up to five non-emulated USB HID devices can be connected to the transmitter. The
transmitter can support up to seven USB devices, but will always report a combined
HID device for keyboard/mouse and touchscreen support, and an Audio device for
speakers and microphone support.
The audio is presented to the computer’s operating system as a USB headset with
controls for input level, input mute, input AGC, sidetone level, sidetone mute, output
level, output mute and output balance. The audio device is permanently presented to the
computer when the DDX-CAM module powers up.
You can adjust the audio features using all of the standard operating system controls.
Note: Due to the architecture of the Codec, adjusting the input (microphone) level or muting the
input (microphone) will also affect the sidetone level and mute.
Using audio in a full DDX matrix installation
Audio functionality is enabled by default on all computers. For multi-head computers,
audio is only enabled for the primary transmitter, although two audio devices will be
presented to the computer, one for each transmitter. For multi-head consoles, audio is
only enabled for the primary receiver.
Managing audio in multi-user situations
• In all connection modes, the audio output of the computer is routed to the receiver
from the transmitter.
• In View Only and Shared modes, the receiver input audio is ignored.
• In Exclusive and Private modes, the receiver input audio is routed to the transmitter.
Note:The above is equivalent to routing the output audio as per the video and the input audio
as per the USB (except in View Only and Shared modes, where the input audio stream is
ignored).
When viewing the OSD selection screen, input and output audio is suppressed.
The user who is currently in control of a computer can adjust the audio levels using the
standard operating system audio features; their changes will affect the audio for all other
users viewing the same computer. Additional users connected in View Mode, or additional
Shared Access users who don’t have control, can listen to the audio but at the volume
dictated by the main user. As a user switches between machines, their audio levels are
automatically adjusted to match their current connection.
CONFIGURATION
Using audio in a simple extender installation
INSTALLATION
The DDX system fully supports stereo audio, with all audio devices being presented
at the linked host computer as USB audio devices. There are slight differences in audio
operation between DDX devices acting in a simple extender arrangement (without the

INDEX
While the Category rating (e.g. CAT 5e, CAT 6a, CAT 7, etc.)
determines the electrical performance of a cable, another vital part
of the overall cable specification is its protection from interference.
As cabling distances and data rates increase, so too does the
susceptibility to interference, from both external and internal
sources.
Proximity to other electromagnetic sources are the main external
threat and these can be subdued using overall screening that
surrounds all four of the cable pairs. However, interference is also
possible from neighbouring twisted pairs within the same cable
and this can be just as hazardous to data integrity. Such crosstalk is
countered by shielding each cable pair separately.
Within each Category rating, you can specify different
combinations of external screening and internal shielding to suit
the environment into which the link is being placed.

FURTHER
INFORMATION
Extender systems (or individual DDX-USR units) can be upgraded using a USB stick if
required. This is carried out as follows:
1 Connect the DDX-USR to a compatible display and keyboard; optionally connect to a
DDX-CAM module using a Shielded CAT6a or CAT7 data cable to upgrade it at the
same time.
2 On the DDX-USR unit, insert a FAT32-formatted USB stick containing the extender
firmware upgrade file into one of the front USB ports. Note:The extender firmware
upgrade file must be in the root folder.
3 Apply power to the DDX-USR unit and DDX-CAM modules.
IMPORTANT: Ensure power remains uninterrupted throughout the upgrade process.
4 Press-and-hold the recessed reset button for ten seconds until the PWR indicator
begins to flash quickly, then release the reset button.
5 When prompted, type in the name of the extender firmware upgrade file and press
Enter.
6 Type Y or N as appropriate, when asked if an attached (DDX-CAM) transmitter unit
should also be upgraded.
7 The display will show the upgrade progress and confirmation message.
8 If successful the DDX-USR and DDX-CAM modules will automatically be rebooted
and the USB stick can be removed.
