It will cross switch multiple input/output audio/video signals through independent Y/Pb/Pr component and audio input/output terminals. Each Y/Pb/Pr component signal and audio signal is transmitted separately and switched separately, thereby minimizing signal attenuation and ensuring high definition graphics and high fidelity audio signal output. The primary use is; TV broadcasting projects, multi-media conference halls, large display projects, TV teaching, and command control centers. It features power interruption protection during power surge, LCD display, and synchronous and separate audio/video switching functions. The RS-232 and RS-485 communication ports enable convenient communication with remote control equipment. This manual describes the SW404HD and SW808HD models.

For RS-232, the matrix switch operates as a DCE device and therefore can be connected using a straight cable to a DTE device such as a computer. The RS-232 connector is a DB-9 female. For RS-485, a discrete wiring connector is provided for custom connection to any RS-485 equipment. For full details on connecting to the matrix switch refer to the User Manual.

The matrix front panel switching keys not responsive? Answer: The matrix front panel keys employ scanning testing and require longer response time. Press the keys for 2 seconds and then release. This way, key switching will be responsive in operation. 2. The matrix does not display or color display is abnormal after hot plug? Answer: Switching of the signals goes through the matrix ICs. If the voltage difference between the input signal equipment and the matrix equipment is too large, hot plug could easily cause damage to the matrix switches. Turn off power to the system before plugging or unplugging. 3. Ghosting happens when YPbPr signals output to display? Answer: Ghosting is often caused either by the projector, inferior cable quality or long transmission distance. Adjust the projector or replace with better quality cable. 4. Loss of color reproduction happens or no video signal output? Answer: Check if connectors at both ends of the YPbPr signal cable are correctly connected. 5. The serial port fails to control the matrix? Answer: Check that the communication port set by the control software is correctly connected to the corresponding serial port of the equipment. Verify the serial control parameters (9600, 8, N, 1). 6. The corresponding graphics fail to output during matrix switching? Answer: (1) Check for a signal on the input end. If there is no input signal, it could be that the input connection cable is broken or the connector is loose. Repair or replace the connecting cable. (2) Check if there is signal on the output end. If there is no output signal, the cable could be broken or the connector is loose. Reseat or replace the connecting cable. ((3) Check if the output port number is the same as the controlled port number. ((4) If none of the above circumstances happen, it could be internal failure of the product itself. Call 469-429 9200 for technical support. 7. The power LED is not on, LCD has no display and no response in operation? Answer: Check if the equipment power input is good. Check the power at the AC outlet and that the power cord is firmly connected at both ends. 8. Power leakage sensed during plugging or unplugging of the audio/video ports? Answer: It could be that the equipment power is not properly grounded. Properly ground the equipment, otherwise product life may be shortened. 9. The LCD displays normally, the communication port shows good return codes, but displays no graphics or audio output? Answer: (1) It could be that the audio/video connectors are loose. Replace the connectors. (2) It could be the connection cable short-circuited. Replace the cable. (3) It could be the connection cable is broken. Replace the cable. 10. The matrix panel keys and communication ports are out of order? Answer: Check if the equipment power input is good and the computer communication ports are good. If the connections are good, it could be failure of the product. Call 469-429-9200 for technical support. 11. Operation and function failure occurred? Answer: Check if the equipment and the matrix system are properly connected. If the problem persists, Call 469-429 9200 for technical support. INPUT/OUTPUT JACKS Dependent on the matrix model installed, the video signal input/output jacks are arranged in either 4 or 8 columns of RCA female connectors. The connector rows from top to bottom are: Y video (green), Pb/Cb video (blue), Pr/Cr video (red), right audio signal (red), and left audio signal (white). The input and output jack channels are numbered from left to right as 1 to 8 (or 1 to 4). Refer to the drawing above for other types of connectors. The model numbers of the matrix systems describe the number of input/output connectors. Example: Model SW404HD has 4 input sets and 4 output sets. CONNECTING AUDIO/VIDEO CABLE The matrix supports various AV video signal sources. Users can connect inputs and outputs to different audio/visual equipment such as: CD/DVD players, graphics workstations and number displays, projectors, video recorders, displays, multiplexers, and etc. Audio/Video Ports The RCA Jack used is a standardized audio/video connector. It uses coaxial signal connections in the center conductor and the outer ring for grounding. It will transmit digital audio signals and video signals. Video I/O (3-RCA) Connectors The Y/Pb/Pr connector is a high definition digital TV connector (color contour Y/Pb/Pr) capable of connecting with high definition digital set-top box, satellite receiver and various high definition monitors and TV equipment. There are separate connectors for the Y, Pb, and Pr signals. YPbPr-RCA Connecting Cables Audio I/O (2-RCA) Connectors Connection of the RCA audio cables is as shown below: Normally RCA audio connectors are in pairs separately indicated by red for the right audio channel (R for right) and black or white for the left audio channel (L for left). The RCA stereo cable is in one set for both left and right audio channels with each Audio Connecting Cables channel in one cable CONNECTION METHOD The audio inputs and outputs can be separately connected to audio signal connectors of video recorders and multiplexers. Use the RCA cables for connecting AV equipment to the matrix. Connect the video and audio connectors of the signal source equipment output terminals to the same channel connector of the matrix input terminals. Connect the output of the matrix switch to the input connectors of the interfaced equipment. NOTE: The colors at both ends of the various signal cables must correspond to each other, otherwise loss of color reproduction or even no signal output could occur. CONTROL COMPUTER CONNECTION Use the RS-232 cable (supplied) to connect the computer serial port to the RS-232 communication port of the matrix host. The computer can then be used to control the matrix after installation of application software. MATRIX SYSTEM TECHNICAL PARAMETERS Parameters Video Enhancement Bandwidth Max.
