Vertical Interval Switching
When the switching between inputs, the resulting image change should be
seamless and clean. Vertical interval switching makes this seamless image change
possible. MSG switchers are able to provide vertical interval switching by using an
external sync (genlock) signal to synchronize switching during the vertical sync
interval. Without external sync locking, switching between inputs can result in a
brief rolling (sync loss) or a brief change in the picture size. If no external sync
timing source is connected to the switcher, switching occurs immediately.
Connecting the external sync signal
The Genlock In connector of the MSG switcher receives the external sync timing
signal. The Genlock Out connector allows the signal to be passed on to another
video device, if required.
To enable vertical interval switching, connect an external sync signal (from an
Extron BBG6A Blackburst Generator or other source) to the Genlock In BNC
connector ( 3 ) for genlocking the video signal in broadcast or other sync-critical
applications. Connect any downstream equipment that requires genlocking to the
Genlock Out BNC connector to route the external sync signal through the switcher.

Windows-based Control Program, Cont’d
The ICS100 Control Software, which can be used to control the MSG matrix
switchers, requires Windows 95/98, NT, or later. The program provides
control of the switchers’ functions from a PC. Control is enabled by
connecting the switcher to a PC with a serial cable (to the Serial Port
connector), then installing and configuring the ICS100 Control Software
program in the PC. For information on remotely controlling the switcher
from a network, see Remote Control from a Network, in chapter 5 Remote
Control.
Installing the Windows®-based ICS100 Control Software
The program is contained on a single CD, which is provided with your
switcher. The program occupies approximately 2.5 MB (megabytes) of harddrive space. Run the program from the hard drive after installation.
To install the software from the CD onto the hard drive, put the CD in the
CD-ROM drive of your PC. The install program will autorun. Follow the
instructions that appear on the screen.

Dip Switch Settings
Use the DIP switch bank in the back of the MSG switcher to configure the
serial ports to operate as an RS-232 (factory default-all switches up) or
RS-422/RS-485 (all switches down) interface. DIP switch settings change
according to the standard used. Configure the DIP switch according to
your requirements, based on the table below.

Host-to-MSG Matrix Switcher Communications
Command
Description
[ADDRxx]
Assigns an address from 01 to 98 to the unit. Address 00 is
a broadcast address and address 99 is reserved for future
products.
- Where xx = 01 to 98
[ADDR@]
Removes an address from the unit. This is the factory
dafault setting.
[ADDR?]
Query the unit for a previously assigned address.
[CCxx]
Connects the controller to the addressed unit. 00 is a
broadcast address and will connect to all attached units.
- Where xx is the address of the unit to be contacted.
All serial commands are applicable to both the MSG0804 and MSG0808,
except where the number of outputs differs between the two switchers. The
MSG Matrix Switchers accept serial control protocol commands through the
RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 port. These commands consist of one or more
characters per command field. They require a beginning delimiter ([) and an
ending delimiter (]).
Addressing commands
In RS-232 mode, there is no need to assign an address to the switcher,
however, if you are using RS-422 or RS-485 mode with several devices
connected in parallel to a single serial port, you will need to assign an
address for each unit.
The factory default for the MSG Matrix Switchers is no address. You must
assign an address between 01 and 98. In addition, 00 is a broadcast address,
and all connected units will perform the action commanded (no responses
will be sent).
Using the command table
The command table is shown on the following pages. Lower case characters
are acceptable in the command field only where indicated. Command and
response examples are shown throughout the command table.

Remote Control from a Network
You can control the MSG0804 or MSG0808 matrix switchers from a remote location
across a Local Area Network (LAN), a Wide Area Network (WAN), or even over the
Internet.
This remote network control is available in a client-server environment, where the
PC attached to the switcher is called the server, and the PC that needs to control the
device from another location is called the client.
Enabling remote control of the switcher over a network
Both the user operating the client (remote PC) and the user operating the server
(local PC) must install the ICS100 Control Software program onto their respective
PCs. See chapter 4, Windows-based Control Program, for information on installing the
software.
Each user—the one operating the server and the one operating the client—must
follow these instructions:
Configuring the server (local) PC
1.
Attach the switcher to the server PC with a serial cable from the PC’s serial
port to the switcher’s serial port. For information on wiring the cable, see
Remote Control Port (RS-232/RS-422/RS-485) earlier in this chapter.
2.
Click the Windows Start button, then select Programs, then ICS100, then
Serial Server. The Inline Server Software (the “server”) launches and the
Serial Port Server window opens.

3.
Make sure the Local IP, Port, Client IP, and Connection Status information is
correct (you may need to check with your Network Administrator or IT group
for this information). If the client PC is connected to the server, a Client IP
address will be displayed and the Connection Status will show green (red if
not connected).
4.
The Inline Serial Server waits for the client PC on TCP/IP port 2001 (the
factory default). If that port is already in use, you may change the number of
the port (open the ICS100 Control Software Help file for instructions).
5.
When the server has been connected and configured correctly, the client can
be configured to connect to the server (check with your Network
Administrator to secure log-on rights to the server).
Instructions for configuring the client (remote) PC:
1.
Install the ICS100 Control Software program. See chapter 4, Windows-based
Control Program, for information on installing the software.
2.
Click the Windows Start button, then select Programs, then ICS100. The
ICS100 (the “client”) launches.
3.
Open a connection to the server as follows:
a.
In the ICS100 Control Software, click on the Communications tab, then
select Network from the drop-down menu. The Server Connection
window opens.
Figure 5-2 — ICS100 Server Connection window
www.camboard.de
b.
Enter the IP Address and Port number of the server PC.
c.
Click OK. The connection is visible in the main window.
d.
Click OK again. The client PC can now be used to control the switcher.

The user operating the client PC may want to adjust the time out interval. The time
out interval is the number of seconds that the client waits before communicating
with the server.
Adjusting the response time
1.
From the Communications menu, select Response Time Out.
2.
Select the appropriate time out interval for your network (4-12 seconds). Note:
Selecting a longer interval will not slow down client-server communication.

The connection between the client PC and the server PC may be closed at any time
from either PC.
Stopping communications from the server PC
In the Inline Server Software, from the Server menu, select Close Connection.
Stopping communications from the client PC

Reference Information
Updating the Firmware
Firmware is programming that is inserted into programmable read-only memory
on a programmable ROM chip in your switcher, thus becoming a permanent part it.
Firmware controls many of the features of your switcher. Firmware is created,
tested, and improved like software and, like software, updates are made available
periodically. When firmware updates are available, they can be distributed via
e-mail and, using a special user interface, installed in the programmable read-only
memory in your switcher.
Updating the firmware requires the installation of the Windows-based ICS100
Control Software. For information on installing the ICS100 software, see chapter 4,
Windows-Based Control Program.
To update the firmware:
1.
When you receive a firmware update via e-mail, save the file in the ICS100
subdirectory so the file can be found and used when required.
2.
Click the Windows Start button, then select Programs, then ICS100, then Boot
Loader. The Boot Loader launches and the Boot Loader window opens.
Figure B-1 — Boot Loader window
3.
Click the Load Buffer button. An Open window will open.
4.
Find and double-click the firmware update (hex) file that was previously
saved in the ICS100 subdirectory. The file will load into the buffer.
5.
When you are prompted with the Finish Loading Buffer message, click the
Burn Flash button to download the firmware to the switcher.
