Compatibility
There are several varieties of computers and
computer video cards on the market today. There
are also numerous data monitors and large screen
data projectors. When displaying a computer
image on a large screen data projector or on a
large screen monitor, it often becomes clear that
some computers are not always compatible with
these display devices. The VA6831FC is a
computer video interface designed to resolve this
incompatibility.

The VA6831FC is a dual input-switchable computer
video interface. It is designed to interface up to two
VGA, SVGA, XGA, UXGA, MAC, SUN, or SGI
computer video sources to one scan-rate
compatible presentation monitor or data projector.
Each of the inputs can be connected to different
types of computers simultaneously. The VA6831FC
will amplify video signals and convert the sync
portion of the signal to the desired format.
It is important to understand the general
capabilities of interfaces. Interfaces do not change
the scan-rate or the resolution of the video signal.
An interface simply converts a computer video
signal to a pre-selected analog format. The source
(computer) and display (projector or monitor) must
be scan-rate compatible.

4.3 MAIN (RGBS/RGBHV) OUTPUT THROUGH 6
BNC CONNECTORS
Most monitors and projectors have the ability to
adjust the horizontal position of the image, but
sometimes it is helpful to control this feature at
the interface. This control is especially useful
when multiple computers are switched to a
single display if the Horizontal positions for each
computer is slightly different.
BNC connectors offer a reliable connection for
high-resolution video signals, and they facilitate
easy cable maintenance in the field. The main
output of the VA6831FC is configured with six
BNC connectors. By selecting the appropriate
combinations, these outputs can provide RGsB,
RGBHV, or RGBS output signals. RGsB type
input signals are passed through only because
the VA6831FC does not separate SYNC from
the Green signal. With these connectors, the
VA6831FC can be connected to compatible
projectors using 4-coax cable for RGBS signals
or 5-coax cable for RGBHV signals.

First, make sure that the CH1 Horizontal Delay
and CH2 Horizontal Delay dip-switches are OFF.
With the interface Input Select Switch on
REMOTE/AUTO (center position) and the
Horizontal Position Control Switch centered,
adjust the image using the monitor or projector’s
Horizontal image position control. Then set the

4.4 INPUT SELECTION SWITCH
The VA6831FC accepts two balanced stereo
audio inputs and offers one unbalanced stereo
audio output. Please note that the audio signal
will follow the video signal during switching,
which means that in either manual selection or
auto-switch mode, if Input 1 is active then both
video and audio signals will be selected for this
input.
The selection of inputs between one and two are
accomplished by using the Input Select Switch
on the front panel. This switch has three
positions: left, center, and right.
By switching to the left, the unit will select
INPUT 1. By switching to the right, the
VA6831FC will select INPUT 2. The center
position is a REMOTE/AUTO mode.
4.7 BANDWIDTH
The LED lights on each side of the Input Select
Switch will indicate which input is selected.
The minimum bandwidth of the VA6831FC is
350 MHz, and the typical bandwidth is 425 MHz.
This high bandwidth allows the passing of a
video signal’s third harmonic, thus ensuring a
clean video signal. Indeed, the VA6831FC will
be virtually transparent to the video signal.
If only one source is present and the Input
Select Switch is in the VA6831FC’s AUTO
mode, the unit will select the active input. An on
LED will indicate the active input.
When two active sources are present and the
Input Select Switch is on the REMOTE/AUTO
position, the VA6831FC selects INPUT 2 as the
default turning LED 2 red.

4.8 MOUNTING CAPABILITY
The VA6831FC can be easily mounted into an
equipment rack. Four mounting holes are
provided on each side of the unit. To mount a
single unit, use Altinex 19”-1U Rack Mount Ears
(part # DA1294FC). To mount two units in
tandem, use an Altinex 19”-1U Rack Mount
Shelf (part # DA1293FC). For under the table
mounts, optional brackets, such as TM1271,
TM1272, TM1273, or TM1274 can be used.

Step 1.
Please attach the Interface on the rack
using the provided rack mount hardware
or using the optional TM Series Altinex
mounting brackets, through two screens
on each side of the VA6831FC.
Step 2.
The VA6831FC may be used with either
110V or 220V and offers a universal
connector for ease of use throughout
the world. Before plugging in the power
cord to the unit, please verify that the
voltage rating of 110V/220V on the
Step 3.
7
FUSE CLIP located on the rear of the
VA6831FC is the same as the voltage
rating on the power outlet. To change
the setting, unplug the VA6831FC,
squeeze the clips on either side of the
fuse box, and pull out the fuse holder.
Then turn the Fuse Dip 180 degrees,
resetting it with the proper voltage
shown through the window. Please
reinsert the fuse box. The side clips of
the fuse box should lock securely into
place.
Connect the power cord, pushing it in
gently but firmly. The power indicator

light on the front panel of the VA6831FC
should turn on.
Step 4.
Connect one end of the input cable to
the video output of the computer and
the other end to the 15-pin HD input
connector of the VA6831FC. Repeat
this step if two computers are to be
interfaced.
Step 5.
Connect a cable from a local monitor to
the 15-pin HD Local Monitor Output
connector of the interface. Repeat this
step for a second local monitor if two
computers are to be interfaced. It is not
necessary to terminate this output with a
termination plug if a local monitor is not
attached.
Step 6.
OPERATION
The settings of the VA6831FC Interface can be
adjusted using the dip-switches in Table 4. There
are no other adjustments necessary to operate the
unit. The VA6831FC will operate successfully as
long as the cables are attached properly and
technical specifications are followed.

Connect one end of an output cable to
the main output’s BNC connectors of
the VA6831FC. Connect the other end
to the RGB input on the projector, or
presentation monitor. One can use
either a 4 BNC or 5 BNC coaxial cable
depending on whether the system is
designed as RGBS or RGBHV. Please
note that if the projector has a 15-pin
HD connector, five BNC to 15-pin HD
cables (part # MS8102CA) are available
from Altinex.
Step 7.

Often systems that use large matrix switchers
are designed to switch signals in RGsB format.
In these types of systems, the ability of the
VA6831FC to output the Sync signal on the
Green signal can be very useful. It is important
to know that the VA6831FC will not separate
Sync from the Green signal if the input is RGsB.
It will simply amplify the RGsB and pass it
through. It will combine the Sync signal with the
Green Video signal when the Sync on Green
dip-switch is in the ON position, regardless of
whether the input sync is RGBS or RGBHV. If
the desired output is RGBS or RGBHV, then
leave the Sync on Green dip-switch in the OFF
position.
7.2 HORIZONTAL DELAY REMOVAL (CH1 &
CH2)
If your computer and display device are turned on
and you see a good clear image, you have
successfully interfaced your computer with the
video display.
The VA6831FC offers the ability to bypass
horizontal delay. This may be necessary when
interfacing with projectors or monitors with
sensitive sync inputs, particularly with LCD
projectors. By setting the appropriate dip switch
for Input 1 or Output 2 to the ON position, the
VA6831FC will output the same type of Sync
signal as is being fed into it from the source. In
this setting, Horizontal position control of the
VA6831FC is disabled and any adjustments to
the image position must be done at the monitor
or projector. If the CH1 Horizontal Delay dipswitch is in the OFF position, then the horizontal

7.3 I.D. BIT SWITCH 1& 2
Many computers use ID Bits or “Sense Pins” to
recognize that a monitor has been connected to
its video output port. Often, these ID Bits will
allow the computer to recognize what type of
monitor is connected in terms of its scan rate
compatibility. When the ID Bit switch is in the
ON position, the VA6831FC allows the main ID
Bit (pin 4 on the input connector) to be
connected to the Ground signal.
This is used primarily when interfacing laptop
computers to imitate the presence of a local
monitor. Typically, this recognition will take place
during the boot up stage. If your Interface does
not output video on the display, then place this
switch in the ON position and reboot the
computer. When left in the OFF position, this ID
Bit will be passed through to the local monitor
output port.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Answer
If you have multiple
computers connected to a
single display through the
VA6831FC, this control will
be useful to adjust the
horizontal position of the
image for each input. This
control knob is only active
when CH1 Horizontal Delay
& CH2 Horizontal Delay dipswitches are in the OFF
position for each input.
The VA6831FC does not
separate the SYNC signal
from GREEN. It will
combine Sync with Green
Video, when the SYNC ON
GREEN switch is in the ON
position. So, if the desired
output is in RGsB format,
then put this dip-switch in
the ON position.

1. The power LED should be ON, when the
correct voltage is applied to the Interface.
2. Make sure that the cables have the correct pinouts and the connection and quality of the
cables are good.
3. Make sure that the source and display are
scan-rate compatible. The projector or monitor
should support an appropriate signal format
(RGsB, RGBS or RGBHV). Connect a projector
or monitor directly to the computer with a
shorter cable to verify the compatibility of the
display and source.
4. When adjusting the Horizontal position of the
image, check to see if the CH1 Horizontal
Delay or the CH2 Horizontal Delay switch is in
the OFF position.
5. Verify that the position of the INPUT
SELECTION SWITCH is in the proper position.
6. Please check the status of the LED next to the
Input Selection switch on the front panel and
make sure that it is ON for the active input.
This function may be
necessary when interfacing
with a projector/monitor with
sensitive sync input, or
particularly with LCD
projectors. When the
Horizontal Delay is in the
ON position, the output will
have the same type of Sync
as the source.
If you use the VA6831FC
for a distance of less than
500 ft with an output cable,
there is no need to have
balanced input and
balanced output. If
balanced audio input is fed
into the VA6831FC
Interface, the unbalanced
audio output will provide a
good signal quality.
