1. INTRODUCTION
The Bi-directional Infrared Matrix is designed to work alongside the 8×8
HDMI matrix, providing control of up to 8 source devices from up to 8
display locations. Using the original or programmable remote controls,
source devices such as DVD/Blu-ray players or satellite/set-top boxes
can be controlled from any location.
2. APPLICATIONS
• Control multiple sources and displays via bi-directional Infrared
signals
• Extending the range of existing systems
• Long distance Infrared control
3. PACKAGE CONTENTS
• 8×8 Bi-directional Infrared Matrix
• Remote Control (CR110) with battery
• 5 V/2.6 A DC Power Adaptor
• 9×IR Extender cables
• 9×IR Blaster cables
• Operation Manual
4. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
IR controllable Source equipment (e.g. DVD or Blu-ray players), IR
controllable Display/ TV/monitors and HDMI/video matrix devices.
1
5. FEATURES
• Supports independent IR input and output selection and control
• Supports an IR frequency range of 30 kHz~50 kHz
• Use your existing remote controls or programmable/universal
remote controls
• Supports bi-directional IR from input and output locations
• Supports RS-232 control, IR remote control and on-panel control
• 1U size design
Note: This device does not support the sending of audio/video signals,
it only transmits and receives infra-red signals.

illuminate green when the power is on, red when it is in 'Standby'
mode.
4 All: Press this button to select all IR output with one IR input signal.
The sequence should be: ALLNumber KeyENTER.
5 Lock: Press this button to lock all the buttons on the panel; press
again to unlock. The LED will illuminate green when locked.
6 Enter: Press this button to confirm when changing a setting. If this
button is not pressed within 20 seconds the selection is cancelled.
7 1~8/A~H: Use these buttons to select which source is selected for
control in each output location. Press a number key to select fromt
TV A to TV H channels and press a number key again to select
from Source 1 to Source 8 channels. Press 'Enter' to confirm the
selection.

1 RS-232 AUX: Connect to a device that can be controlled (via D-Sub
9-pin male cable) by RS-232 commands e.g. the 8x8 HDMI Matrix.
2 RS-232 MAIN: Connect to a PC or control system with D-Sub 9-pin
male cable for the transmission of RS-232 commands.
3 TV In A~H: Connect to the supplied IR extender cables for IR signal
reception, the signal will be relayed to the designated source
device via the IR Blaster. Ensure that the remote being used is
within the direct line-of-sight of the IR extenders.
TV In All: Connect to a single IR extender cable for IR signal
reception, the signal will be relayed to all Source outputs (1~8)
at the same time. Ensure that the remote being used is within the
direct line-of-sight of the IR extender.
TV Out A~H: Connect to the supplied IR blaster cables for IR signal
transmission, IR signals will be relayed from the designated Source
IR extender. Place the IR blasters in direct line-of-sight of the
equipment to be controlled.
TV Out All: Connect to a single IR blaster cable for IR signal
transmission, IR signals will be relayed from all Source inputs (1~8)
at the same time. Place the IR blaster in direct line-of-sight of the
equipment to be controlled.
4 Source In 1~8: Connect to the supplied IR extender cables for IR
signal reception the signal will be relayed to the designated TV
output device via the IR Blaster. Ensure that the remote being used
is within the direct line-of-sight of the IR extenders.
Source In All: Connect to a single IR extender cable for IR signal
reception, the signal will be relayed to all TV outputs (A~H) at the
same time. Ensure that the remote being used is within the direct
line-of-sight of the IR extender.
Source Out 1~8: Connect to the supplied IR blaster cables for IR
signal transmission, IR signals will be relayed from the designated
TV output IR extender. Place the IR blasters in direct line-of-sight of
the equipment to be controlled.

Source Out All: Connect to a single IR blaster cable for IR signal
transmission, IR signals will be relayed from all TV outputs (A~H)
at the same time. Place the IR blaster in direct line-of-sight of the
equipment to be controlled.
5 DC 5V: Plug the 5V DC power supply into the unit and connect the
adaptor to an AC outlet.
6.3 Remote Control
The remote control's settings can be controlled
with the four DIP switches on the back of the unit
(under the battery compartment cover). When
all the DIP switches are set to ON () the
remote control is able to control all the input
settings for all outputs. For example, to set Output
A to relay commands from Input 5 press Button
A to select Output A and then press Button 5 to
select Input 5, Output A will switch to Input 5.

The Remote Control can also be set to limit the

G
Input selection to only one Output, allowing
8
H
different remote control units to perform input
IN
OUT
selection individually for each output port i.e. a
single zone (refer to Section 6.6 - IR Custom codes
and DIP switch Settings for details). For example,
CR-110
when all DIP switches are set to OFF (),
this setting limits input selections to only Output A.
Therefore, when setting Output A to input 3 only Button 3 needs to be
pressed to switch to that input.
