1. System Overview
This manual describes the function of the LE-2n which is an LE-2S, LE-2M or LE2U legaliser processing card connected within a nanobox desktop chassis.
1.1
The nanobox chassis
The nanobox chassis has been designed to provide a low cost way of operating a
single legaliser card for stand-alone use without the complex and more expensive
infrastructure of an etherbox 1RU rack mount chassis (FB-9E) and 1RU
operational panel (FB-9). The LE-2n legaliser card is operated using front panel
switches or by a java software application for PC or MAC which will be connected
via a supplied USB lead.
Figure 1-1 Figure 1 1 Nanobox chassis with worldwide PSU and USB Cable
1.2
The LE-2n Product
This processing card come in three different styles:
1. The LE-2nS, Standard definition unit, capable of SD operation only.
2. The LE-2nM, Multi definition unit, capable of SD and HD operation.
3. The LE-2nU,Ultra definition unit, capable of SD, HD and Dual Link (4:4:4)
operation.
Apart from the operational standards, the units have the same features and are
all covered within this manual. Within this manual it can be assumed that

Reg. No. 2855535 Telephone: +44 (0) 1923 256 000 Fax: +44 (0) 1923 256 100 email: eyesales@eyeheight.com
references to the LE-2n refer to either style of processing card. When there are
differences it will be pointed out specifically.
The LE-2n is a full-featured multi-mode legaliser system. The main features of
the LE-2n legalisers are as follows:
Provides Legalisation of the SDI Input signal with full 10 bit processing
throughout.
Composite, YCC (Component) and RGB colour spaces
Two Independent SDI outputs for "Legalise" and user controllable
"Legal/Indicate/Raw”.
Adjustable Clipping Levels.
Adjustable soft clipping knee levels.
Highly effective overshoot and undershoot suppression on the luminance
signal.
Integral luma and chroma gain, black level adjustment & hue rotation.
EBU-R103 standard legalisation settings.
7.5 IRE or 0 IRE Pedestal.
6 User Memories.
Unique severity display mode on monitoring output (only available if the
unit is used with a FP-9 flexipanel).
2 off On-board GPI‟s for memory recall.
Compatible with etherbox GPI/Tallies.
FULLY software and firmware updatable using Flash technology.
A mechanical relay bypass option is available.
Figure 1-2 LE-2n rear.
The main video connections to the LE-2 are shown above. Input 2 is for use with
a dual-link input only (in conjunction with Input 1). Outputs 1 and 2 are the
legaliser outputs and are configurable independently as either Legal, Raw or
Indicate outputs, except when running dual-link where both are required for the
dual-link output.

2 Setting up the LE-2n
2.1
Associated equipment.
The LE-2n can operate in three modes. These modes are determined by setting
the front panel switches. The modes are:
1.
Operation using the presets selected by the front panel SELECT
switch.
2.
Operation using the SoftPanel software on a PC or Mac computer.
3.
Operation using an Eyeheight FP-9 Flexipanel.
The Dip Switch settings for the above modes are:
1. Set the Left switch to “E” to enable the front panel SELECT switch.
To disable the front panel SELECT switch set the left switch as below (setup and
leave).
2. Set the right switch to “PC” as shown below to use the SoftPanel software.
3. Set the right switch to  to use an Eyeheight FP-9 Flexipanel.
Respectively the associated equipment required for operation of the above
modes are:
1. No extra equipment is required for operation using the SELECT switch.
2. A PC or Mac to operate the softpanel (user provided) and a USB cable
(supplied) and right switch set to “PC”.
3. An FP-9 control panel with an RR-9E rear enclosure (available from
Eyeheight) and a standard ethernet cable cable with RJ-45 connectors
(user supplied) is also required to connect the FP-9 panel to the LE-2n.
Set right switch to .

Reg. No. 2855535 Telephone: +44 (0) 1923 256 000 Fax: +44 (0) 1923 256 100 email: eyesales@eyeheight.com
The LE-2n will always be shipped in mode 1 ( Front Panel) unless the
customer specifies otherwise.
DO NOT CONNECT THE SUPPLIED USB/RJ45 CABLE TO THE
FRONT RJ45 LABELLED “PANEL” THIS COULD RESULT IN
DAMAGE TO THE UNIT.
ONLY ONE OPERATIONAL MODE CAN BE USED AT A TIME.
FOR EXAMPLE THE USER CANNOT OPERATE THE FRONT
PANEL SELECT SWITCH (1) AND THE SOFT PANEL MODE (2)
AT THE SAME TIME.
2.2 Using the Front Panel Presets.
The front panel SELECT switch allows quick selection of the legalisation presets.
Always input the video before using the SELECT switch to select a preset as
changing the video will automatically select the preset that was previously
selected for that video standard.
Figure 2-1 Preset Indication LEDs and preset SELECTion switch.
See section 5.1.2 for a full explanation of the presets.
OFF – turns legalisation off and puts the legaliser in bypass.
EBU – selects EBU103 Normal.
0/100 – selects RGB 0-100%.
COMP – selects PAL or NTSC, depending on input video.
USER – recalls User Memory 1 for the input video‟s standard.
See section 5.1.3 for an explanation of user presets
See section 9 for the LE-2n menu settings
User Memory 1 must have been previously set by:
1. Inputting the required video.
2. Setting the Legalisation Mode.
3. Setting the Clips and Knees etc.
4. Saving the settings to User Memory 1.

2.3 Connecting the LE-2n using a soft panel.
This is the way the LE-2n is normally shipped. The data and power connections
are shown in the diagram below. After power up the Power light should be green
and if video is connected the Status light should be green. The Status light will
change to orange if no video is connected. In the unlikely event that the status
light stays red then the system has found an error and it will need returning to the
factory.
2-2 Diagram showing the power and data connections.
THE LE-2n UNIT MUST BE PLACED IN A COOL ENVIROMENT
(ROOM TEMPERATURE IS REASONABLE) WITH ADAQUATE
VENTELATION. DO NOT COVER OR USE IN AN
UNVENTELATED RESTRICTED SPACE.
2.3.1 Installing the software.
The software is provided on an eyeheight USB flash drive which is supplied with
the LE-2n.
The softPanel application requires no installation itself. Simply run “softpanel.jar”
However, it requires three platforms to be in place already:
Java Runtime Environment (Java 5 or later).
RxTx serial drivers for Java (see below).
USB to serial drivers.

Hover the mouse over the control to see an information tooltip.
2.4.3 Status Bar
Generic GUI component, for conveying information to the user.
In normal use, the status bar will display the Host Alias of the device, but it is also
used to display error messages and status updates.
2.4.4 Display Buttons
The four buttons, labelled A, B, C, and D act both as separate menu displays,
and as larger combined displays, depending on context.
They also act as buttons; performing an action when clicked. This action will
depend on what is displayed on the button at the time.
For more info, see Menu Navigation.
2.4.5 Rotary Controls
In normal use, the four rotary controls correspond directly with the four Display
Buttons; each to the display above it.
When a rotary control is not enabled, its marker will be grey.
When it is in use, the marker will be white, and it will respond to the mouse
pointer, when hovered over it:

2.5.1 Go To Another Menu
A common menu item, used for navigating tree-structured menus.
2.5.2 Single Parameter Adjustment
A green menu is one in which there is one adjustable parameter.
There are two ways to adjust the parameter in a green menu:
Press the green Display Button.
This will increment the value in that window.
This is most frequently done when the menu parameter is Textural for
example switching a parameter between ON and OFF. In this case a
button press is most natural.
Use the Rotary Controls to adjust the parameter in the respective Display
Button.
The direction and speed of rotation enable numeric values to be set easily.

2.5.3 Double Or Triple Parameter Adjustment
A red menu is one in which there are two or three adjustable parameters. In this
case it is necessary to first select the menu by pressing the red Display Button.
When the red button is pressed it will turn green, and either two or three of the
Rotary Controls will flash, indicating that the respective Rotary Control will
operate a corresponding parameter.
2.5.4 Information Display
A yellow menu is one in which only information is displayed.
2.6 Multi-Device Mode
This is available via the Options menu.
It is used to control many devices through one softPanel.
This is not used with the single-product nanoBox system.
In order to use Multi-Device mode, you will need to connect to a chassis
containing many devices, such as the etherBox (FB-9E).
Multi-Device Mode will add an additional control to the panel, which lists the
available devices. You can populate the list using [Tools > Search for
products…], which will scan the connected system for available devices.
2.7 The Messaging System
The messaging system is in place to send ASCII character messages to a
product.
Use [Tools > Send Message] to see the message screen as below:
- 16 eyeheight Unit 34 Park House Watford Business Park Greenhill Crescent Watford Herts GB WD18 8PH
Reg. No. 2855535 Telephone: +44 (0) 1923 256 000 Fax: +44 (0) 1923 256 100 email: eyesales@eyeheight.com
The text box will accept a message up to 32 characters in length.
Click the Send button to send the message. The Status Bar will display a
confirmation or error message to acknowledge success or failure.
Click the Cancel button to return to the normal menu window.
2.7.1 Using the messaging system to set a products username
The username is also referred to as a Host Alias, and is shown on the Device
Info panel.
There is a special format of message that sends a new username to a product.
Setting up usernames such as "EDIT 3 dev" or "PRES-A" makes it easy for the
user of the panel to know which device is which, particularly when several
products in different areas are controlled by one panel.
The following describes how to set up a new user name for a product:
Ensure that the softPanel has the product which requires its name
changing, currently selected.
Use [Tools > Send Message] to enter the messaging system.
Type "U:" or "u:" followed by up to 12 characters which make up the new
user name.
For example “u:LogoInsert 1”.
Click the Send button.
If the Status Bar shows "Message Sent", the message has been
successfully sent and the user name changed.
2.7.2 Using the messaging system to name a products memories
Nearly all of the Eyeheight products have at least 4 user memories associated
with them. Each of these memories can be named individually with a name of up
to 12 characters.
The following describes how to set up a new name for a given memory:
- 17 eyeheight Unit 34 Park House Watford Business Park Greenhill Crescent Watford Herts GB WD18 8PH
Reg. No. 2855535 Telephone: +44 (0) 1923 256 000 Fax: +44 (0) 1923 256 100 email: eyesales@eyeheight.com
Ensure that the softPanel has the product which requires its memory
named, currently selected.
Use [Tools > Send Message] to enter the messaging system.
Type "Mn:" or "mn:", where n is the memory number, followed by up to 12
characters which make up the new memory name.
For example, “m3:--MCR-SET-UP” will rename memory#3 as “--MCRSET-UP”.
Click the Send button.
If the Status Bar shows "Message Sent", the message has been
successfully sent and the user memory renamed.
2.7.3 Using the messaging system to lock or hide menus from the
user
Provision has been provided to "Lock" or "Hide" menus from the user. Locking
menus can prevent inadvertent miss-operation of the product in some
circumstances. Hiding menus can be used to ease the use of a product where
certain menus are not applicable to the user. It is also possible to, for example,
hide all the menus except for the user memories (Which can be individually
named by the user) and program the memories only for specific functions
relevant to the user so effectively making a "Custom" system.
The following describes how to lock or hide menus from the user:
Ensure that the softPanel has the product which requires its name
changing, currently selected.
Use [Tools > Send Message] to enter the messaging system.
Type "Lnn:" (to lock) or "Hnn:" (to hide), where nn is a 2 digit number
representing a menu number.
For example, “L12:” will lock menu#12.
Click the Send button.
If the Status Bar shows "Message Sent", the message has been
successfully sent and menu number 12 will be locked from use.
A small padlock symbol will appear in menu#12.
To "unlock" or "un-hide" a menu using the above general procedure, type "Ann:".
To apply a global lock to the entire device, type "L:" with no 2 digit number.
A global lock can be undone by typing "A:" to access all the menus again.
2.7.4 Engineering Functions Using the Messaging System
The following commands are also available to the user. These are mostly for
engineering and system purposes.

!nbx
This Informs the device that it is to be installed in an Eyeheight FlexiBox and will be controlled by a Flexi-Panel in a normal I-BUS network.
The above commands should only be used by qualified engineering staff.
2.8 Connecting the LE-2n using an FP-9.
The LE-2n is normally shipped for operation with a soft panel. If you have
specifically asked for the system to operate with a flexipanel then it will be
shipped this way. The control and power connections are shown in the diagram
below. After power up the Power light should be green and if video is connected
the Status light should be green. The Status light will change to orange if no
video is connected. In the unlikely event that the status light stays red then the
system has found an error and it will need returning to the factory.

The Ethernet cable must be <2M long or you may experience fading of the FP-9
display due to voltage drop from the power supply in the LE-2n. If you wish to
mount the FP-9 panel very remotely (up to 150 Metres) then set the power switch
on the RR-9 (Rear box for the FP-9) to “LOC” (Local) and use the power supply
supplied with the RR-9 to power the panel.
2.8.1 Flexipanel controls.
Figure 2-4 Flexipanel (FP-9) controls.
2.8.2 Device Buttons.
There are 8 grey device buttons. These switch between the currently selected
processing cards installed in the etherbox. It is also possible to select cards in
another chassis if the I-Bus is connected to the other chassis.
2.8.3 Menu Navigation.
There are two ways to navigate from menu to menu.
1. Using the NEXT and PREV buttons. These are for “Flat” menu structures.
The NEXT and PREV LEDS will flash while further menus are available.
2. Using a GOTO ANOTHER MENU LCD button (as below coloured orange).
This is more common and will take you straight to a relevant set of menus.
Examples are the Play and UTILS menu‟s shown on Figure 8.

1. Press the green LCD button. This will increment the value in that window.
This is most frequently done when the menu parameter is Textural for
example switching a parameter between ON and OFF. In this case a
button press is most natural.
2. Use the Rotary digipot (A,B,C or D) to adjust the parameter in the
respective LCD window (A,B,C or D). The direction and speed of rotation
enable numeric values to be set easily.
2.8.5 Parameter adjustment of a red menu
A red menu is one in which there is two or three adjustable parameters. In this
case it is necessary to first select the menu by pressing the red button. When the
red button is pressed it will turn green and either two or three of the rotary digipot
LEDS will flash indicating that the respective rotary digipot will operate the
respective parameter.
2.8.6 Information display
A Yellow menu (Which on most panels does look a light orange!) is one in which
only information is displayed. An example of this is the software version display.

3 Connecting Video to the LE-2n
This unit requires HD-SDI or SDI digital video connections to the BNC
connectors. Connections on the LE-2n product
Figure 3-1 LE-2n connections
The main video connections to the LE-2n are shown above. Input 2 is for use with
a dual-link input only (in conjunction with Input 1). Outputs 1 and 2 are the
legaliser outputs and are configurable independently as either Legal, Raw or
Indicate outputs, except when running dual-link where both are required for the
dual-link output. The RS232/GPI/LTC connection pin-outs are shown in the
technical appendix at the end of this manual. If an FP-9 flexipanel is used instead
of SoftPanel the RS232 connection can be connected to the COM port of a PC
with the eyeheight “Error Logging Application” for QA (Quality assessment)
recording purposes. The LTC connection will allow accurate time code stamping
for the QA.
If an FP-9 flexipanel is used instead of SoftPanel the RS232 can alternatively be
used to recall user memories and presets with a simple text based RS232
protocol.
Three GPI‟s can be used to recall user memories 1 and 2 respectively.

4 Legaliser Processing
4.1.1 Legaliser
The legaliser operates in one of three modes; RGB, YCC (component) or
Composite. The mode is selected via the top level mode menu. Each mode is
discussed below. In all modes the legaliser is transparent to pixels within the
legal range.
4.1.2 Selecting the legalisation type
This is a view of the top-level display of the LE-2:

To select the type of legalisation required, press menu B to cycle through the
available options. These are:
Off – no processing of the input video will be performed by the LE-2.
RGB – the picture will be RGB legalised according to the RGB clip and
knee settings.
YCC – the picture will be YCC legalised according to the YCC clip and
knee settings.
Comp – the picture will be Composite legalised according to the
Composite clip and knee settings.
Comp + RGB – the picture will be firstly Composite legalised, and then
RGB legalised.
4.1.3 Setting the legaliser domain
It is important to note that in order for the unit to do the correct colour space
conversion required, the manner in which the data is converted needs to be
specified. This must be done regardless of which type of legalisation is required!
This is selected from the below menu found by navigating to SetupComp:

Reg. No. 2855535 Telephone: +44 (0) 1923 256 000 Fax: +44 (0) 1923 256 100 email: eyesales@eyeheight.com
Menus 100-103: Composite main menu
Domain
= PAL
The domain options are listed below:
Auto – This uses the frame rate to calculate which conversion to use
o 29.97fps, 30fps, 59.94fps and 60fps means NTSC with pedestal
(7.5IRE) will be used
o 25fps and 50fps means PAL will be used
o Other detected standards, including 23.98fps and 24fps will use
PAL colour space conversion when in auto mode.
PAL
NTSC
NTSC with 7.5 IRE offset (a.k.a. pedestal)
The unit default mode is „Auto‟.
The domain has an effect on a certain number of menus which will display either
in mV or in IRE. For a few menus, different values are stored for each mode, so
(for example) switching from PAL to NTSC will switch to using the NTSC menus
for those few variables, rather than converting the PAL values into NTSC
equivalents.
The values treated in this way are listed below:
High Comp Y clip and knee
Low Comp Y clip and knee
High Comp C clip and knee
Low Comp C clip and knee
Proc amp gain, black lift value
Ring suppression high and low clip
4.1.4 Selecting the legaliser values
RGB legalisation
Setting the RGB legaliser values is done via the below menus, which is found
under SetupRGB/YCCRGB Setup

Menus 36-39: RGB high clip and knee
Hi RGB
Clip =
+100.0
Hi RGB
Knee =
+100.0
The basic form of the RGB legaliser is shown in Figure 4-1. In RGB mode the
legaliser first converts the video from the YCbCr colour space to the RGB colour
space. The RGB data is then soft clipped according to the settings for RGB High
Clip & Knee and RGB Low Clip & Knee. Finally the clipped RGB data is
converted back to the YCbCr colour space. The RGB legal colour space is a
subset of the composite legal colour space so an RGB legal signal is also
composite legal but the reverse is not true.

YCC Legalisation
Setting the YCC legaliser values is done via the below menus, which are found
under SetupRGB/YCCYCC Setup

data using separate clip and knee parameters for the Y and colour difference
components.

Menus 80-83: Composite Y high clip and knee (PAL, mV)
HiComp

+700mV
HiComp
Y Knee
+700mV
The basic form of the composite legaliser is shown in Figure 4-3: Composite
Legaliser StructureError! Reference source not found.. In composite mode the
legaliser restricts the Y, Cb & Cr components such that when the signal is
converted to a composite waveform the Y component stays within the range
allowed by the Y High Clip and Y Low Clip and the total composite waveform
stays within the range defined by Comp High Clip and Comp Low Clip.
The legaliser works by selectively reducing the saturation of pixels which would
otherwise result in over modulation of the composite waveform. Composite mode
preserves the hue of each pixel but not the saturation.

Figure 4-3: Composite Legaliser Structure
Comp + RGB mode
The video signal is legalised as described in the Composite legalisation
section, and then the legalised signal is passed through a second legaliser as
specified in the RGB legalisation section.
4.1.5 Clip & Knee
Many of the legaliser functions present Clip and Knee parameters to the user.
The Clip parameters specify the maximum and minimum values the system
legaliser will allow to pass. Figure 4-4 shows an illegal input to the clipper with
detail in the illegal highlight and lowlight areas of the signal. When the knee
values are set to the same value as their respective Clips the legaliser operates
as a hard-clipper as shown in Figure 4-5 show shows the now legal signal but the
detail in the highlights and lowlights has been lost. Figure 4-6 shows the same
input signal legalised with a 10% difference between the Clips and their
respective Knees. The highlight/lowlight detail has been compressed into the
legal region at the expense of some of the dynamic range of the originally legal
part of the waveform.

Monitoring Output Generation
The second output of the legaliser can be configured either as a second legal
output or to display which areas of the picture are being processed by the
legaliser. The “MonOp” menu provides control of this feature and allows the user
to select which colour is used to represent the processed picture area.

When used as an indicate output the selected colour is keyed over the legal
output with the opacity of the colour indicating how illegal the area is. Because
signals are typically only slightly illegal the gain on the keyer can be controlled to
deliver the desired mix. The gain is controlled by the “Gamut Gain” menu and
setting this menu to its maximum value will give the same output as a traditional
indicate output.
4.2.1 Proc Amp
Setting the proc amp values is done from the following menu, which is found
under SetupLift/Gain:
Menus 16-19: Proc amp main menu
The proc amp enables the luma gain to be adjusted from 0 to 200%, Similarly the
chroma also is adjustable from 0 to 200%. Full 10 bit by 10 bit multipliers are
used with a rounded 10 bit product. Black level adjustment is also applied at this
point as is hue adjustment which allows for 180 of hue rotation.
4.2.2 Setting up the input video parameters (UltraDef units only)
For the unit to function correctly, it may be necessary to change some of the
default input video parameters, especially if the unit is to be used in dual-link
mode.
Changing the input video settings is done via the following menus, found under

D.Rnge
This sets the dynamic range of the input video to 100, 200 or 400%.
4.2.3 Setting up the output video parameters
Either output of the LE-2 can be configured as an indicate output, which allows
the user to see which parts of the picture are being processed by the legaliser.
The output config menu allows you to set the type of signal present at the output
BNC‟s, and the output monitor menu allows the indicate output settings to be
customised, including solid / flashing / Zebra indication modes, colour choice and
intensity level.

When using an indicate output, the selected colour is keyed over the legal output
with the opacity of the colour indicating how illegal the area is. Because signals
are typically only slightly illegal the gain on the keyer can be controlled to deliver
the desired mix. The gain is controlled by the “Keyed Gain” menu and setting this
menu to its maximum value will give the same output as a traditional indicate
output.
4.2.4 Recalling settings when video standard is changed
When the menu settings are changed the new values are automatically backed
up to non-volatile memory. When the video standard is changed the previous
settings for that standard are automatically restored.
4.3 Advanced features of the LE-2
4.3.1 Ring suppression
Ring suppression is controlled from the following menu, found by navigating to
SetupCompRing Supprn:
Menus 208-211: Ring suppression (RGB, percentage)
Ring
Supprn
= OFF
High
Clip =
+100.0
Low
Clip =
+0.0 %
There are 3 different instances of this menu; one for RGB (in percent, as shown
above), one for PAL (in mV) and one for NTSC (in IRE). The displayed menu will
depend on the legalisation required, and the domain selected. Changes to the
values within these menus are not copied across all three instances, so settings
for PAL, NTSC and RGB are all stored separately.
Ring suppression can either be off, on or auto. In auto mode, the high and low
settings for the current legalisation type are used as the high and low clip values
for the ring suppression.
4.3.2 Adjusting the input picture blanking
Adjustment of the input picture blanking parameters uses the menu below, found
under “Utils  Blank”

The blanking is defined as the number of pixels in from the edge of the input
video picture that you want to be blanked off.
T is the number of pixels of blanking from the top of the picture
B is the number of pixels from the bottom of the picture
L is the number of pixels from the left edge of the picture
R is the number of pixels from the right edge of the picture
By default, all blanking variables are set to zero
Video Blanking defaults to “Off”.
4.3.3 PC Logging Application (Only available if an FP-9 flexipanel
is used instead of SoftPanel)
Installation
The latest version of the logging application can be downloaded from
http://www.eyeheight.com/software/Utilities/Composite_legaliser_TimeCode_utilit
y.zip
The software requires the .NET Framework v1.1 to be installed on the PC to be
used for logging. The .NET Framework can be downloaded free of charge from
http://www.microsoft.com .
Extract all files in the LESDC_logger.zip file to a directory of your choice. Run the
logger.exe file to start the logger.
Setting Up for Logging
For successful logging the unit needs to be set to generate the logging output by
setting the “Log Mode” menu to on. The unit then needs to be connected to a
spare COM port on the PC (make a note of the com port number as it will be
required when configuring the logging software) using a standard serial cable.
Finally the com port needs to be configured in the logging software via the
Comms menu.
Understanding the Application
The application provides a graphical log of the percentage of pixels in the
incoming video which are considered to be illegal and the GUI can be seen in
Figure 4-7. The application also provides a visual indication of illegal (green) and
severely illegal (red) pixels where a pixel is considered to be severely illegal if it is
more illegal than the gamut threshold. This enables the operator to isolate the
dangerously illegal cases from those caused by minor variations between
legaliser designs.

Reg. No. 2855535 Telephone: +44 (0) 1923 256 000 Fax: +44 (0) 1923 256 100 email: eyesales@eyeheight.com
To start logging set up the COM port in the comms menu and then click start. The
logging operation can be suspended by hitting the stop button. Where timecode
is available to the unit in the format specified within the timecode menu of the LE2, the application will log data against the timecode. If the timecode stops the log
will also stop. If no timecode is present the application will log continually.
The received section gives details of the last log entry received whilst clicking on
the graph window brings up the cursor and populates the cursor section with the
log entry relating the selected bar. The zoom control allows viewing of a larger
area of the log data.
Logs can be saved and opened at a later date using the file menu.
Figure 4-7: Logging Application GUI
4.3.4 Setting up timecode extraction
If timecode data is present in the input video, it can be extracted for use with the
logging software to give a precise view of exactly where illegal video is.
Setup of the timecode extraction is done from the below menu, found under
SetupUtilsT.Codes:

The user memories can be named with up to 6 characters. To name memory 1,
“MyLeg1”
1. Use the appropriate messaging system to send “M01: MyLeg1” (do not
include the quotes)
2. You may get a “not acknowledged” message, this does not matter.
Other memories can be named in the same way but changing the 01 to another
memory number.
5.2 Tamper Locking the LE-2.
The user can lock specific menus or all the menus on the LE-2 so that it cannot
be adjusted with a manual control panel. This does not effect automation.
To lock only menu 44. (RGB Hi Clip):
1. Use the appropriate messaging system to send “L05:” (do not include the
quotes)
A padlock symbol will appear on the menu and it cannot be adjusted. To unlock
menu 44, type “A44:”. Other menus are done in the same way
To lock the whole product type “L:” and to unlock the whole product type “A:” .
5.2.1 Globally locking the user menus (only available if an FP-9 is
used instead of SoftPanel)
Hold in the DEVICE SELECT button to which the LE-2 is assigned until a
message is displayed on the menus informing you that “User has LOCKED
menus” or “User has UNLOCKED menus”.

6 GPI/Tally Set-up.
6.1.1 On-Board GPI’s
The LE-2 is a geNETics product. The geNETics system uses generic
Input/Output cards which have 2 GPI‟s. These GPI‟s activate the first 2 user
memories in the system. The user memories do have different initial names
depending on the operational mode. (Memories are stored separately for 625,
525, 1080 and 720 line standards)
GPI 1 -
Activate User Memory 1 (625), 7 (525), 13 (1080), 19 (720)
GPI 2 -
Activate User Memory 2 (625), 8 (525), 14 (1080), 20 (720)
Activate = Short to ground or logic 0V. See Appendix.
6.1.2 Configuring tallies on the etherbox.
The LE-2 can use an etherbox tally to indicate that it is is bypass (no processing)
mode
The etherbox chassis has three usable tallies. These are Tallies 11,12 and 13.
Set up menu 121 for the box number and tally number that you wish to use. If you
do not wish to use a tally set the box number to 0. Refer to the etherbox manual
for interface information.

7 Resetting the LE-2
There are 2 types of resets available which don‟t involve removing the LE-2 from
the chassis. Both of these are available from the following menu, navigated to
via SetupSystemResets:
Menus 188-191: Resets menu
Reboot
this
unit
Factry
reset
The „reboot this unit‟ option will have the same effect as removing power to the
LE-2, without having to have physical access to the unit. If the unit exhibits
unusual behaviour, this is a good action to take and may correct the problem. It
is likely, however, that output video will be slightly interrupted as the unit resets,
so doing this while on-air is not recommended.
The „factory reset‟ option will display the following menu:
Menus 196-199: Factory reset menu
START?
Factry
ARE 
YOU 
SURE?
-----YES
------
Pressing “YES” will restore all the factory default settings and will clear all the
memories.
WARNING! Performing a factory reset will permanently erase all user memories
that have been stored, as well as erasing the current power-on default setting.

Table 3 GPI Splitter, GPI connection.
THE CONNECTIONS LABELLED “DO NOT CONNECT” MUST BE
LEFT COMPLETELY UNCONNECTED.
GPI‟s are normally activated by a short to ground. The GPI has its own internal
pull-up resistor. If the user is interfacing with logic then
Vhigh = +12V>Vin>+3V
Vlow = +0.3V>Vin>0V
10.1.3 RS232 Interface.
This loosely follows the pin convention of EIA-561 which is a standard for RS232
on an RJ45 cable. Only TX, RX and Signal ground (pin 4) are implemented. For
the LE-2n the following RS232 parameters apply:
115Kbaud
8 Bits, no parity
1 Stop bit.
Eyeheight provide a Serial to USB lead with the LE-2n which is normally used for
the soft panel control using this port.
