RGBHV/Stereo Audio Matrix Switcher
1. Introduction
1.1 About MRG Matrix Switcher System
MRG series Matrix switcher is a high-performance professional computer and audio signal switcher that
can be used for cross switching of multi computer and audio signal. Independent RGBHV component
and balanced/unbalanced I/O terminals make each component signal transmit and switch separately;
this design can reduce attenuation of signal transmission to minimum and output the image and audio
signal in high-fidelity quality.
MRG series switcher mostly apply in broadcasting TV engineering, multi-media meeting room, big
screen display engineering, television education, command control center etc. It provides power-fail
locale protection function, LED indicating, A/V timing & separating switching function. With RS232
interface, it can be worked with PC, remote control system and any other far-end control system
devices. The user manual takes MRG88A as example, other models can take reference from it too.

5.1 Introduction of the Input and Output Connectors
According to different type of matrix, computer signal I/O interface are make up of Channel 8,
Channel 16,Channel 24,Channel 32,Channel 48,Channel 64,Channel 96, Channel 128 BNC
female terminals, audio signal I/O terminals are make up of Channel 2,Channel 4,Channel 8,
Channel 16,Channel 24,Channel 32,Channel 48,Channel 64,Channel 96,Channel 128 3.8mm
captive screw connectors. The channel number of MRG16X16 computer signal I/O terminals are
form Channel 1 to Channel 16(form left to right, display in two rows), The interfaces are R,G,B,
H,V signal terminals of the computer(form up to down),the channel number of audio signal I/O
terminals are form Channel 1 to Channel 16(from left to right).Please refer to shell silk-screen
figure about other types of interface.
5.2 Connection of RS-232 Communication Port
Except the front control panel, the MRG matrix switcher can be control by far-end control system
(Such as PC,CRESTRON control system, AMX control system) or through the Ethernet control
via the RS-232 communication port.

5.2.1 Connection with Control Systems
With the RS-232 port, the MRG matrix switchers can be control by several kinds of control
systems.
5.2.2 Connection with Computer
When the switcher connects to the COM1 or COM2 of the computer with control software, users
can control it by that computer.
To control the switcher, users may use the RS232 software

Connection between MRG matrix switcher and the computer
5.3 How to Connect with the Input and Output Terminals
The MRG matrix switchers may take DVD players, computers, graphic workstations and digital showing
platform as their input signal source, and projectors, video recorders, displayers and amplifiers as their
output signal destinations according to different situation.
RGBHV connection:
The MRG matrix switchers support the Composite Video, Component Video (YPbPr), Super Video (YC)
and VGA signal source. RGBHV signal output terminals or YC output terminals are needed in AV device;
RGBHV signal output terminals are needed in VGA device.
The BNC connector is shown as the figure below.
Tip (+)
Sleeve ( )
BNC Connector
If the VGA device doesn’t with RGBHV output terminals, please convert the signals with a VGA to
RGBHV switcher for getting high quality MRG output effects.
Please use the special five core RGBHV signal cord to connect the input and output devices and
connect the BNC connector R(red)、G(green)、B(blue)、H(horizontal)、V(vertical)carefully.
Attention:
Please make sure the RGBHV connectors from the source and to the destination should be in the same
order, otherwise it world cause color loss or no output signal at all.
Audio signal connection:
“AUDIO INPUT”, “AUDIO OUTPUTS” audio network interface in RGBHV matrix switchers can be
connected to the audio signal and amplify of the DVD player.
8
RGBHV/Stereo Audio Matrix Switcher
Audio connection is complicated than video. It has two kinds of connection: balanced and unbalanced.
The balanced connection transmits a pair of balanced signals with two signal cords. Because
interferences will have the same intensity and the opposite phases on the two signal cords, it will be
counteracted in the end. For the low frequency extent of the audio signal, it would be easily interfered
under long distance transmission. Therefore,as an anti-interference connection , it is mostly used in
audio connection of special device.
The unbalanced connection transmits signals only with a signal cord. Without counteraction, it can be
interfered more easily. Accordingly, it is adopted for household appliance or some cases with low
technical demand.
Take the audio signal line for example: 1.Unbalanced: pin “G” connect to SLEEVE, pin “+” connect to
TIP, pin “–” connect to pin “G”; 2.Balanced: pin “G” connect to SLEEVE, pin “–” connect to RING, pin “+”
connect to TIP. As shown in the F 6-3:
F 5-3 Balanced/unbalanced connection on captive screw connector
To select which connection is up to the interface of the device. When available, the balanced
connection is the first choice. Before connection, please read the command or relevant demand in the
user manual carefully. In some cases, maybe there is balanced in source signal end but unbalanced in
the destination end. If in a nonstandard case, it is done to connect balanced for the balanced end and
unbalanced for unbalanced end. But if in a standard one, the converter must be used to switch the
signals as the same, balanced or unbalanced.

11. Troubleshooting & Maintenance
1)
When the output image in the destination device connected to the MRG Matrix has ghost, such as
the projector output with ghost, please check the projector’s setting or try another high quality
connection cord.
2)
When there is a color losing or no video signal output, it may be the unmatched RGBHV connector
order between the input and output end.
3)
When the remote controller doesn’t works:
A. Maybe the battery is run out of, please change a new one.
B. Maybe the controller is broken, please ask the dealer to fix it.
4)
When user can not control the MRG Matrix by computer through its COM port, please check the
15
RGBHV/Stereo Audio Matrix Switcher
COM port number in the software and make sure the COM port is in good condition.
5)
If there is not “beep” sound when switching the I/O signal, please make sure the beeper is switched
on. If so, the beeper inside the matrix may be broken. Please send it to the dealer for fixing.
6)
When switching , the beeper beeps but without any output image:
A. Check with oscilloscope or multimeter if there is any signal at the input end. If there is no
signal input, it may be the input connection cord broken or the connectors loosen.
B. Check with oscilloscope or multimeter if there is any signal at the output end. If there is no
signal output, it may be the output connection cord broken or the connectors loosen.
C. Please make sure the destination device is exactly on the controlled output channel
D. If it is still the same after the above checking, it may be something wrong in the switcher.
Please send it to the dealer for fixing.
7)
If the output image is interfered, please make sure the system is earthed well.
8)
If the static becomes stronger when connecting the BNC connectors, it may be due to the incorrect
earthing of the power supply, Please earth it again correctly, and otherwise it would bring damage
to the switcher or shorten its natural life.
9)
If the Matrix can not be controlled by the keys on the front panel, RS232 port or remote controller,
the host may has already been broken. Please send it to the dealer for fixing.
