INTRODUCTION
The Gefen DVI to HDSDI Pro Scaler combines two of our DVI to HDSDI Scaler
Plus units into one rack-mountable unit. It still incorporates full single-link DVI-D
conversion scaled to your choice of SD/HDSDI Single- or Dual-link modes, but now
simplifies your rack. Resolutions of up to 1080p are supported over the HDSDI link
for those that want true “High Definition.” Performance has been greatly enhanced
due to Gennum’s VXP Scaler circuitry onboard, allowing for new features such as
Genlock, Color & Gamma Correction, Noise Reduction, Detail Enhancement, Aspect
Ratio Selection, Pattern Generator Mode, and Multiple Language Menu Support.
Bottom Line? More performance, less cost.
HOW IT WORKS
DVI devices are connected to the DVI inputs and SDI devices are connected to the
SDI outputs. When the source, display and the Scaler are powered and connected,
video signals are converted to the proper format. There are two separate menu
systems for each integrated DVI to HDSDI box. Input 1 is labeled as the Master
device in the menu system while Input 2 is labeled as the Slave device. Please refer
to page 2 on how to access each separate menu system
CONTENTS
The DVI to HD-SDI Pro consists of:
(1) DVI to HDSDI Pro Scaler unit
(2) 6 foot DVI Cable (m-m)
(1) DB-9 Cable
(1) RMT-8HDS-IR Remote Control
(1) Rack Ears
(1) 5V Universal DC Power Supply

OPERATION NOTES
On power up, the DVI to HD-SDI Pro will automatically detect the format of the input
signal. The unit is controlled using the included remote or through the RS-232 port.
The following are the buttons for the RMT-8HDS-IR Remote Control Unit (included):
- UP (Navigates cursor up)
- LEFT (Navigates cursor left)
- Enter (Accept Operation / Return to Menu)
- RIGHT (Navigates cursor right)
- DOWN (Navigates cursor down)
- MENU (Show / Hide On screen Display)
- OUTPUT (Change Output Format)
- SOURCE (Non operational)
To bring up the on screen menu for the master device, press the MENU button once.
To bring up the menu for the slave device, press the MENU button again. Pressing
the MENU button once more will exit the menu system. Navigation is done using
Buttons up, left, right, and down; Push the Enter button to accept the cursor focus.
Pressing the Output button cycles through the following output modes:
480i - 576i - 720p - 1080i
Other functions and output modes can be accessed through the on screen menu.
To Restore I/O settings, simply recycle power on the Scaler
*Note: The IR Remote Control Unit has a small bank of adjustment switches known
as DIP (Dual Inline Package) switches located inside the battery compartment. Both
DIP switches under the remote battery cover must initially be in the OFF position
to communicate with the Scaler, as they control the IR frequency used. Please see
page 7 for more information on how to set the DIP switches.

RMT-8HDS-IR Installation
1. Remove battery cover from the back of the RMT-8HDS-IR remote.
2. Verify that DIP switches 1 & 2 are in the down (OFF) position.
3. Insert the battery, hold the battery so that you can see the positive side facing up.
The side that is not marked must be facing down.
4. Test the RMT-8HDS-IR remote by pressing ONLY one button at a time. The indicator light on the remote will flash once each time you press a button. WARNING:
Do not press multiple buttons simultaneously and do NOT press buttons rapidly.
These actions will cause the remote to reset and steps 1-4 will have to be repeated.
Note: The RMT-8HDS-IR ships with two batteries. One battery is required for operation, the second battery is a spare.
