Introduction
About the CrossPoint 42 Matrix Switcher
The Extron CrossPoint 42 HVA Matrix Switcher is an analog RGBHV matrix
switcher, with stereo audio, that distributes any input to any combination of
outputs. The matrix switcher can route multiple input/output configurations
simultaneously.
The Extron CrossPoint 42 HVA Matrix Switcher switches RGBHV and two-channel
stereo audio (balanced and unbalanced). It also switches RGBS, RGsB, RsGsBs,
HDTV, component video, S-video, and composite video (figure 1-1). The audio
switching can either be linked to the video (audio follow) or independent of the
video (audio breakaway). Adjustable audio gain and attenuation compensates for
level differences between audio inputs.
The CrossPoint 42 HVA is a single box solution to simple 300 MHz (-3dB) routing
applications. Each input and output is individually isolated and buffered, and any
of four input(s) can be switched to either or both outputs with virtually no
crosstalk or signal noise between channels.
The CrossPoint 42 HVA is housed in rack-mountable, 1U high, 19” wide metal
enclosure. The appropriate rack mounting kit is included with the switcher. The
switcher has an internal 100VAC to 240VAC, 50/60 Hz, 40 watt, auto-switchable
power supply that provides worldwide power compatibility.

Bandwidth — Bandwidth is a minimum of 300 MHz (-3dB), fully loaded. This
high bandwidth allows Extron’s switchers to switch everything from NTSC
video to high-resolution computer displays.
Operational flexibility — Operations such as input/output selection and
adjustment of audio levels can be performed on the front panel or over the
RS-232 link. The RS-232 link allows remote control via a control system.
•
QuickSwitch Front Panel Controller (QS-FPC™) — The CrossPoint 42 HVA
QS-FPC feature supports touch-of-a-button input and output selection, and
audio gain and attenuation control.
•
Windows-based control program — Extron’s Windows-based control
program provides a versatile range of operational options with its graphical
interface and drag-and-drop/point-and-click operation. The Windows-based
control program also has an emulation mode that lets you create a switcher
configuration file at the home office and then download it for use by the
switcher on site.
•
Extron’s Simple Instruction Set™ (SIS™) — The remote control protocol
uses Extron’s SIS for easy programming and operation.
Audio gain/attenuation — Users can set the level of audio gain or attenuation
(-18dB to +24dB) via the RS-232 link or from the front panel. Individual input
audio levels can be adjusted so there are no noticeable volume differences
when switching between sources (figure 1-2).

The CrossPoint 42 HVA Matrix Switcher is housed in a rack-mountable, 1U high,
19” wide metal enclosure. The appropriate rack mount kit (#70-077-03) is included
with the switcher. The switcher may also be surface-mounted under a table, desk,
or podium, or on a wall, using an Extron 1U underdesk mounting kit (#70-222-01).
Table or wall mounting
The table/wall mounting brackets extend approximately 1/4” (6.4 mm) above the
top surface of the switcher enclosure. This design allows for an air space between
the enclosure and the surface to which it is mounted. Table or wall mount the
switcher as follows:
1.
Attach the table/wall mounting brackets to the switcher with the eight
provided #8 machine screws (figure 2-1).
2.
Hold the switcher with the attached brackets against the underside of the
table or other furniture, or against the wall. Mark the location of the
screw holes of the bracket on the mounting surface.
3.
Drill 3/32” (2 mm) diameter pilot holes, 1/4” (6.4 mm) deep in the
mounting surface at the marked screw locations.
4.
Insert #8 wood screws into the four pilot holes. Tighten each screw into
the mounting surface until just less than 1/4” of the screw protrudes.
5.

Power connection
1
AC power connector — Plug a standard IEC power cord into this connector
to connect the switcher to a 100 to 240VAC, 50 Hz or 60 Hz power source.
Video input and output connections
All video input and output connections to the CrossPoint 42 are made with
female BNC connectors. Some types of video output devices do not have BNC
video output connectors. For these cases, a suitable cable or connector adapter
is necessary between the device output connector and the BNC input connector
of the CrossPoint.
2
RGBHV video inputs — Connect RGBHV video inputs to these BNC
connectors for each input.
3
RGBHV video outputs — Connect RGBHV video outputs to these BNC
connectors for each output.
The CrossPoint 42 HVA switcher can also switch RGBS, RGsB, RsGsBs,
component video, S-video, or composite video by using four, three, two, or one
BNC. If switching a video format other than RGBHV, ensure that the same
video planes (R, G, B, H/HV, and/or V) are used on the switcher output as on
the input. H/HV and V will switch sync signals only, but will not switch
video.
The CrossPoint 42 HVA switcher does not alter the video signal in any way.
The signal output by the switcher is in the same format as the input.

Definitions
The following terms apply to Extron Matrix Switchers, and are used throughout
this manual:
Tie — An input-to-output connection.
Configuration — May consist of one tie or two ties.
Current configuration — The configuration that is currently being used (also
called configuration 0).
Input buttons, output buttons, and LEDs
1
Input 1 through 4 buttons and LEDs — The Input buttons are used to select
an input, either to determine existing ties, or to set up a configuration. The
input LEDs identify selected inputs and indicate audio levels in the audio
adjustment mode. A more detailed explanation of the two functions is
included in Front Panel Operations later in this chapter.
2
Outputs button and Outputs 1 and 2 LEDs — The Outputs button and LEDs
select and identify outputs.
I/O Control buttons and LEDs
When creating or viewing a configuration, you must specify whether the
configuration applies to video, audio, or both. This is done with the Conf/Save
button. Current mode is indicated by the Audio and Video LEDs.
3 and 4 Decrement ▼ and Increment ▲ buttons and LEDs — The Decrement
▼ and Increment ▲ buttons decrease and increase the amount of audio gain
for a selected input. The input 1-4 LEDs and the Decrement ▼ and Increment
▲ LEDs indicate the audio level of the selected input (see the chart in Viewing
and adjusting the audio level).
5
3-2
I/O Conf/Save button and LED — Press and release the Conf/Save button to
select video and audio, video only, or audio only for configuration. As a
secondary function, the Conf/Save button selects the audio level display/
adjust mode. Press and hold the Conf/Save button until the I/O LED begins
to blink. If the Video/+dB LED was lit, it turns off. Select an input. The
current audio level setting for the selected input is displayed in the input
LEDs. The audio level for the selected input can be increased or decreased by
pressing the Increment (3) or Decrement (4) buttons. A more detailed
CrossPoint 42 HVA Matrix Switcher • Operation
explanation of audio level adjustment is included in Viewing and adjusting the
audio level later in this chapter.
6
Audio/-dB LED — The Conf/Save button selects and deselects audio for a
configuration being created or viewed. The Audio/-dB LED lights to indicate
that audio is available for configuration or viewing. The Audio/-dB LED
lights steadily to indicate that the audio follows the video configuration. The
Audio/-dB LED (and the LED for the selected audio input) blink to indicate
that the audio configuration is broken away from the video configuration. In
audio level display/adjust mode this LED indicates attenuation (-) of the
audio level.
7
Video/+dB LED — The Conf/Save button selects and deselects video for a
configuration being created or viewed. The Video/+dB LED lights to indicate
that video is available for configuration or viewing. In audio level display/
adjust mode this LED indicates a gain (+) in the audio level.
Front Panel Operations
The following paragraphs detail the power-up process and then provide sample
procedures for creating ties and configurations; changing a configuration; viewing
ties and configurations; and viewing and adjusting the audio level.
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 the front
panel LEDs during the test. An error-free power up self-test sequence leaves the
RGBHV LED, Audio LED, Output 1 LED, and Input 1 LED on and all other LEDs off.
During the first power up, Input 1 is tied to Output 1, so both LEDs will
light. During subsequent power ups, the LED for the input that is tied to
Output 1 will light.
The current configuration is saved in non-volatile memory. When power is
applied, the last current configuration is retrieved.
If an error occurs during the self-test, the switcher locks up and will not operate. If
your switcher locks up on power-up, call the Extron S3 Sales & Technical Support
Hotline.
Creating a configuration
The current configuration can be changed using the front panel buttons. To change
the current configuration, do the following:
1.
Press the Conf/Save button to select video, audio, or both for configuration.
2.
Select the desired output by pressing and releasing the Outputs button to
cycle through output 1 or output 2.
3.
Select the desired input by pressing and releasing the appropriate Input
button.
4.
Repeat steps 1 through 3 to create a second tie, as desired.
1.
Only one video input and one audio input can be tied to an output.
2.
If a tie is made between an input and an output, and the selected output
was previously tied to another input, the older tie is broken in favor of the
newer tie.
3.
To indicate current ties, input LEDs light when an output is selected.

4.
If audio and video are tied to different inputs (audio breakaway), and if
you select video and audio for display, the LED for the selected video input
lights steadily and the LED for the selected audio input blinks.
5.
If an output with no tie is selected, only that output’s LED lights.
Example 1: Create a set of video and audio ties — input 3 to output 1
See figure 3-2 and the following steps for an example in which input 3 is tied to
output 1.

Viewing the current configuration
The current configuration can be viewed using the front panel buttons. Press and
release the Output button and the LED for the input tied to it will light. If, when
you view video and audio ties, the Audio LED blinks and the Video LED is on after
selecting an input or output, the LEDs indicate that the audio ties are not the same
as the video ties for that input (audio breakaway is
active).

1 = Slow blink = 1dB
Viewing and adjusting the audio level
The audio level of each input can be displayed and
adjusted through a range of -18dB to +24dB to ensure
that there is no noticeable volume difference among
sources. The audio level can be adjusted from the front
panel or by using Extron’s Windows-based control
program. To adjust the audio level of an input from

System reset to factory defaults
To reset the switcher to the factory default settings, press and hold the Conf/Save
button on the front panel while AC power is being applied. Continue to hold the
Conf/Save button until the power up sequence is completed (all LEDs turn off, the
Output 1, Video, and Audio LEDs turn on, then the Conf/Save LED blinks).
System reset clears all ties and sets all audio gain levels to unity gain (+0dB).
Executive mode (front panel security lockout)
The executive mode limits the operation of the CrossPoint switcher from the front
panel. When the switcher is in executive mode, all of the front panel functions are
disabled and the ties can be viewed but not changed. See the section on Viewing the
current configuration earlier in this chapter. Selecting an Output will show
associated Input and the Conf/Save button selects the signal type (Audio, Video, or
both). Other than that, if the user pushes a front panel button when the switcher is
in executive mode, the Conf/Save LED blinks three times and goes out.
To toggle executive mode on or off, press and hold the Outputs and Conf/Save
buttons for approximately five seconds. The Conf/Save LED blinks to indicate the
mode change. Release the Outputs and Conf/Save buttons. To toggle the
executive mode state again, press and hold the Outputs and Conf/Save buttons
again.

CrossPoint 42 HVA Matrix Switcher • Operation
Rear Panel Controls
The CrossPoint 42 HVA has sync termination switches on the rear panel for all
inputs (figure 3-5). The switches provide a way to condition non-TTL sync levels
greater than 5 Vp-p, enabling the sync to be properly passed from input to selected
output(s). The CrossPoint 42 HVA has two sets of sync termination switches; one
for horizontal or combined sync and a second set for vertical sync.

Figure 3-5 — Sync termination switches
Each switch provides the option of selecting either 510 ohms or 75 ohms. The
75 ohms position is required only for an input with non-TTL sync, greater than
5V p-p. The normal (default) position is 510 ohms.
An input that produces an out-of-sync display (a display that is rolling
vertically and/or tearing horizontally) could indicate a non-TTL sync input.
Input should be set to the 75 ohm position for a device known to output nonTTL sync levels (greater than 5V p-p). If you’re not sure, check the
specifications in the user’s manual for the input device.

Signal ground
The switcher accepts SIS commands through the RS-232 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-Initiated Messages
When a local event such as a front panel operation occurs, the switcher responds
by sending a message to the host. The switcher-initiated messages are listed below
(underlined).
(C) Copyright 2002, Extron Electronics “CrossPoint 42 HVA”, Vx.xx
The copyright message is initiated by the switcher when it is first powered on.
Vx.xx is the firmware version number.

CrossPoint 42 HVA Matrix Switcher • Programmer’s Guide
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
E12 — Invalid output number (too large)
E13 — Invalid value (out of range)

Windows-Based Program Control
The Extron Universal Switcher Control Program is included with your
CrossPoint 42 HVA switcher. This program communicates with the switcher, via
the RS-232 port, and provides remote control of the input selection for each output
(including audio breakaway) and audio gain and attenuation adjustments.
This program is compatible with Windows 3.1/3.11, Windows 95/98, Windows NT,
Windows ME, and Windows 2000. Updates to this program can be downloaded
from the Extron Web site (http://www.extron.com).
Installing the software
The program is contained on a set of 3.5-inch diskettes, and you should load and
run the program from the hard drive. To install the software on the hard drive, run
SETUP.EXE from the first floppy disk and follow the screen instructions.
By default, the Windows installation creates a C:\UNIVSW folder and places two
icons (Universal Switcher Control Program and Universal Switcher Help) into a
group named “Extron Electronics”.
Using the software
1.
To run the software, double click on the Universal Switcher Control Program
icon in the Extron Electronics program group.
2. Click on the comm port that is connected to the CrossPoint’s
RS-232 port.
3. The Extron Universal Switcher Control Program window
(figure 5-1) displays the selected inputs for each output and the
audio gain for the selected audio inputs.
The program was designed to control most Extron switchers, but its operation
is limited to the features and configuration of your CrossPoint 42 HVA
switcher.
Using the help system
For information about program features, you can access the help program in any of
the following ways:
5-2
•
From the Extron Electronics program group, double-click on the
Universal Switcher Help icon.
•
From within the Windows-based switcher control program,
click on the Help entry on the task bar.
•
From within the Windows-based switcher control program,
press the F1 key.

4.
Lift the top cover straight up as shown in figure B-1. Lift the cover evenly to
clear the grooves at the edge of the rear panel.
Closing the switcher
1.
Reinstall any cables removed. To plug a self-latching cable into the desired
receptacle, align the holes in the connector with the pins in the receptacle,
then press evenly until the receptacle tabs lock into place.
2.
Place the top cover in place and replace all the screws removed in Opening the
switcher on page B-2.
Installing a firmware update
The IC that contains the firmware for the matrix switcher also contains the
memory in which audio levels are saved. When you replace the IC, these
settings will be lost. You may want to record the audio levels before you
replace the IC.
B-2
CrossPoint 42 HVA Matrix Switcher • Reference Information
To replace the firmware, do the following:
1.
Follow the instructions in Opening the switcher on page B-2, to gain access to
the interior of your switcher.
2.
Remove the four screws at the front edge of the bottom cover, releasing the
front panel, then lay the front panel down, with the front panel circuit board
still attached, in front of the switcher.
Do not touch the components inside the switcher without being electrically
grounded. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage ICs, even if you cannot
feel, see, or hear it.
3.
Locate IC U3 (figure B-3).
Figure B-3 — Front panel board
4.
Use the PLCC IC puller to remove the existing firmware IC.
Squeeze the tool to align its hooks with the slots in opposite
corners of socket U3. Insert the hooks, squeeze gently, and
pull the IC straight out of the socket. Set the IC aside.
5.
Note the key (angled corner) of the new firmware IC and the
dot on the underside that indicates pin 1 (figure B-4). Orient
the IC to match the key and pin 1 (indicated by arrow) on the
socket, and carefully press the IC in place.

Reinstall the switcher’s front panel and cover. See Closing the switcher on page
B-2.
If you choose to check for proper operation before putting the cover back
on, ensure that tools and hands are outside the switcher, then perform
step 7. After recognizing the new IC, the switcher should power up
normally. Unplug the AC power cord, and reinstall the cover.
7.
Reinitialize the switcher to recognize the new IC as follows:
a.
Connect the power cord to the AC power source.
b.
Press and hold the Conf/Save button while you connect the power cord
to the switcher.
c.
Observe that the Input, Output, and I/O LEDs all flash.
d.
Release the Conf/Save button.
