Introduction
About This Manual
This manual contains information about the RGB 138xi and
RGB 158xi universal analog interfaces and on how to
operate and configure them. Unless otherwise specified,
references to “the interface” refer to the features or
operation of both models.
About the RGB 138xi and RGB 158xi
The RGB 138xi and RGB 158xi are computer-video and
stereo audio interfaces with 300 MHz (-3dB) video
bandwidth. These interfaces have a horizontal frequency
range of 15 kHz to 125 kHz, so they can be used with any
type of analog computer signal, including those from VGA,
SVGA, XGA, SXGA, XGA-2, Mac, Quadra, Sun, and SGI
computers.
Features
This section highlights the main features of the RGB 138xi
and RGB 158xi interfaces. See the installation chapter for a
detailed description of front and rear panel features.
RGB 138xi and RGB 158xi features
Internal power supply — Use standard IEC power cords.
Front panel AC outlet — Peripherals or laptop computers
can be plugged into the unswitched front panel AC
outlet for a convenient power connection. This feature
is not available in Europe.
Furniture and rack mountability — The RGB 138xi and
RGB 158xi can be mounted under a desk or podium
with optional hardware, or they can be mounted in a
rack or through a desk or other furniture with
included vertical mounting brackets.
Active stereo audio — Unbalanced stereo audio input via a
front panel jack is output as balanced, line level
stereo audio on the rear panel captive screw
connector.
Advanced Digital Sync Processing™ (ADSP™) — ADSP
allows sync processing operations, such as horizontal
centering, to occur without affecting the signal’s sync
timing. This allows horizontal centering to be
applied to signals that are output to digital display
devices such as LCD projectors, DLP projectors and
plasma displays. A rear panel DIP switch allows an
alternative, Digital Display Sync Processing™
(DDSP™), to be used instead.
Gain/peaking control — To compensate for signal
degradation caused by long cable lengths, use this
rear panel toggle switch to increase output voltages.
Serration pulse — This feature allows serration pulses to
either be present or not present at the output.
Serration pulses are required for some displays.
Pass-through connectors — A wide assortment
of architectural adapter plates is available for
installation on these interfaces to allow convenient
pass-through A/V connections.
RGB 138xi features
MBC power jack — The power connector of a buffered
monitor breakout cable can be plugged directly into
the front panel jack on this interface.
Vertical shift control — The RGB 138xi lets you adjust
vertical centering with a front panel knob.
75 ohm video termination — 75 ohm video termination
can be selected from a rear panel DIP switch.
RGB 158xi features
Buffered local monitor output — A 15-pin HD female
connector provides a front panel buffered output for
a local monitor.
ID bit termination — Two front panel DIP switches
provide ID bit termination on pins 4 and/or 11 of the
local monitor output.
Horizontal shift control — Both models feature front panel
horizontal centering control.
Sync stripping — Incoming sync will be stripped from the
red, green and blue signals.
RGBHV, RGBS or RGsB output — RGBHV can be output
simultaneously with RGBS. Sync on green (RGsB)
output can be DIP switch selected.

DIP switches — Three of the four DIP switches on
the rear panels are common to both the RGB 138xi
and the RGB 158xi. They control sync on green
(SOG) output, Digital Display Sync Processing and
serration pulse removal.
The fourth switch controls video input termination
(75 ohm vs. Hi Z) in the RGB 138xi, and it has no
function (spare) in the RGB 158xi.

3
AC power input connector — Connect a standard
IEC AC power cord here for power
input (100VAC to 240VAC, 50/60 Hz).
Cable access openings — Cables attached to the
A/V pass-through architectural adapter plates exit
the enclosure here. Clamp cables in place with the
supplied hardware.
3-position gain/peaking switch — Use this toggle
switch to compensate for signal degradation caused
by long (over about 125 feet) cable lengths. Choose
the setting that provides the best image on the output
display device. Select from these options:
• Unity (no gain or peaking) — The output level is
the same as that of the input and with no
added peaking.
• 50% — This setting increases the output signal
level and adds 50% of the maximum peaking
to the signal.
• 100% — This setting increases the output signal
level and adds 100% of the maximum peaking
to the signal.
If the signal cable between the interface and the
display device is shorter than approximately
125 feet, and the gain/peak switch is set to a setting
other than unity, the image may be overly bright
(overcompensated).
2-6
RGB 138xi, RGB 158xi Installation and Operation
ON — When this switch is set to On, the
interface will output sync on green.
OFF — When the SOG switch is set to Off, the
interface outputs both separate
horizontal and vertical sync (on the H
and V connectors) and composite sync
(on the S connector) for RGBHV or
RGBS, respectively.
2 — DDSP™ (Digital Display Sync Processing™)
This feature may be necessary for digital display
devices such as LCD (liquid crystal display),
DLP (digital light processing) and plasma
displays. Use this option if the image still is not
displayed properly after all other options, such
as serration pulse removal and video
termination changes, have been explored.
ON — When this switch is set to On, the
interface uses Digital Display Sync
Processing instead of Advanced Digital
Sync Processing™. DDSP does not
process the sync signal.
DDSP will disable horizontal and vertical
shift controls.
OFF — When this switch is set to Off, the
interface performs sync processing
operations, such as horizontal shifting,
with ADSP.
3 — SERR (serration pulse) — Many display
devices, including LCD and DLP projectors and
plasma displays, must have serration pulses
removed from the sync signal in order to display
RGB 138xi, RGB 158xi Installation and Operation
2-7
Installation and Operation, cont’d
properly. Flagging or bending at the top of the
video image is a sign that the serration pulses
should be removed.
ON — When this switch is set to On, serration
pulses will be output in the vertical sync
interval.
OFF — When this switch is set to Off, serration
pulses will not be output.
4 — 75 Ohm (video input termination) —
RGB 138xi only — Video termination is
accomplished in a number of ways when using a
universal interface like the RGB 138xi:
1. Setting the 75 ohm termination switch on the
interface when using an MBC cable without a
local monitor attached,
2. Using a laptop breakout cable (LBC)
connected to a laptop or desktop computer
with no local monitor,
3. Connecting a local monitor to the breakout
from an MBC cable,

Setting Internal Jumpers
The jumpers inside the interface(s) are set at the factory to meet
the requirements of most systems. However, you can change
a jumper setting to meet the needs of a particular system.
Changes to internal jumper settings must be
performed by authorized service personnel only.
The user-configurable, internal jumpers control the
following functions:
• horizontal and vertical sync polarity, and
• vertical sync pulse width.
Follow these steps to change the jumper settings. The
RGB 138xi is shown for illustration, but the steps apply to
both models.
1. Remove power from the interface (if it is connected) by
disconnecting the AC power cord from the unit.
2. Open the cover of the interface (the top half of the
enclosure), as shown below. Remove the screws
from the enclosure, and lift the cover straight up.
Do not touch any switches or electronic
components inside the interface. Doing so
could damage the interface.

75 Ohm
The input to the interface is high impedance, and
for the video signal to be at a proper level (not
blooming) 75 ohm termination is needed for the
computer signal. The switch provides a method
of termination to prevent blooming
when a monitor breakout cable is used
but no local monitor or termination
adapter is connected.

3. Note the positions of jumpers J20 and J40 before
changing jumper settings. The illustration of the
circuit board (below) shows the locations of the J20
and J40 jumpers. There are two possible setting
combinations for 3-pin jumpers:
The jumpers perform the following functions:

4. Configure the jumpers. To configure the jumpers, use
pliers to pull the jumper shunt off the pins, then
place the jumper on the appropriate pins.
J-40: Vertical sync width jumper — This jumper
adjusts the vertical sync pulse width. Some
digital display devices have very specific
requirements for incoming sync pulse width.

If no picture displays, the picture cuts in and
out, or the picture is scrambled, try adjusting
the vertical sync pulse width or switching
from ADSP to DDSP.
• If the jumper is placed on pins 1 and 2, the
output vertical sync pulse will be
short (narrow).
• If the jumper is placed on pins 2 and 3, the
output vertical sync pulse will be wide.
This is the default setting.
5. Replace and fasten the enclosure cover, reversing step 2.
If adapter plates will be installed next, this step can
be omitted.
Installing Adapter Plates
The RGB 138xi and RGB 158xi offer the ability to incorporate
a variety of optional architectural adapter plates for passthrough audio and/or video connections. Each interface
can hold up to four (4) adapter plates.
Blank plates (two single height and one double height
plate) are included with the interface to cover unused
spaces. Other adapter plates must be ordered separately.

Troubleshooting
When the interface, computer and output devices have
been properly installed, and the power is turned on, the
image should appear on screen, and sound should be
audible.
If the image does not appear or there is no sound
1. Ensure that all devices are plugged in.
2. Make sure that each device is receiving power. The
power indicator LED should light if the interface is
powered on.
3. Check the cabling and the audio connector wiring, and
make adjustments as needed.
4. Verify that the video input termination DIP switch on
the RGB 138xi and the ID bit termination DIP
switches on the RGB 158xi have been set correctly.
5. For digital display devices, try switching between ADSP
and DDSP using the rear panel DDSP DIP switch.
6. Call Extron’s customer support hotline if needed.
If the image does not display correctly
1. If the output image looks too green, make sure that the
sync on green feature (SOG DIP switch) is turned
off.
2. If the picture bends or flags at the top of the screen, set
the SERR (serration pulse) DIP switch to Off.
3. For a display device that experiences intermittent
glitches, try switching between ADSP and DDSP
using the rear panel DDSP DIP switch.

4. If the picture “hangs off” the edges of the screen, adjust
the centering controls.
5. If the edges of the image seem to exceed their
boundaries or if thin lines and sharp edges look
thick and fuzzy, try changing the GAIN/PEAK
setting.
6. If the image still does not display correctly, call Extron’s
customer support hotline.
