Barco provides a guarantee relating to perfect manufacturing as part of the legally
stipulated terms of guarantee. On receipt, the purchaser must immediately inspect all
delivered goods for damage incurred during transport, as well as for material and
manufacturing faults Barco must be informed immediately in writing of any complaints.
The period of guarantee begins on the date of transfer of risks, in the case of special
systems and software on the date of commissioning, at latest 30 days after the transfer of
risks. In the event of justified notice of compliant, Barco can repair the fault or provide a
replacement at its own discretion within an appropriate period. If this measure proves to be
impossible or unsuccessful, the purchaser can demand a reduction in the purchase price or
cancellation of the contract. All other claims, in particular those relating to compensation for
direct or indirect damage, and also damage attributed to the operation of software as well
as to other services provided by Barco, being a component of the system or independent
service, will be deemed invalid provided the damage is not proven to be attributed to the
absence of properties guaranteed in writing or due to the intent or gross negligence or part
of Barco.

Technical Description
qÉÅÜåáÅ~ä=aÉëÅêáéíáçå
The MatrixPRO Serial Digital switcher is available in three versions.
•
The 16x16 HD-SDI is a serial digital matrix switcher adhering to SMPTE 292M
and SMPTE 259M with 16 inputs and 16 outputs.
•
The 8x8 HD-SDI is a serial digital matrix switcher adhering to SMPTE 292M and
and SMPTE 259M with 8 inputs and 8 outputs.
•
The 16x16 SD-SDI is a serial digital matrix switcher adhering to SMPTE 259M
with 16 inputs and 16 outputs.
The output gain is unity into 75 ohm loads. All video signals are carried on BNCs for the
highest signal quality.
A matrix switcher can route any input to any output (or multiple) outputs. The matrix
switcher has built in capabilities to group outputs and route a single input to that group.
The router has the ability to switch inputs to outputs during the vertical interval. In practice,
this feature will be used to switch synchronous sources. Channel 1 is the source for
vertical interval switching. The feature can be enabled or disabled.
•
•
If there is a signal present on channel 1, status will be reported as valid.
If there is no signal present, status will be reported as invalid.
The reclocking circuits clean up marginal input signals. There are times when the signal
quality is much worse than marginal, but still produces a usable picture. In this case, the
reclocking circuits should be disabled because they will be ineffective at improving image
quality.
The MatrixPRO 16x and 8x series can be controlled by the front panel, RS-232, RS-485, or
Ethernet. The MP Control GUI allows control of the MatrixPRO router from a PC via serial
and Ethernet interfaces. Barco Folsom also offers the compact 1RU MatrixPRO Remote
Control Panel which provides 16 input and 16 output buttons for simple remote operation of
the MatrixPRO router.
The MatrixPRO product line has been specifically designed to work as the front-end
switchers for the Encore Presentation System. The Encore Controller communicates with
MatrixPRO analog and digital routers over an EtherNet local area network. All Controller
commands are processed and issued to the array of routers without the need to specifically
program each switcher. Control of each router is essentially "transparent" to the user.

Establishing Groups of Inputs and Outputs
bëí~ÄäáëÜáåÖ=dêçìéë=çÑ=fåéìíë=~åÇ=lìíéìíë
The MatrixPRO routers can be set up to "lock-out" input sources that are incompatible with
certain output display devices.
S Example: Input channels 1, 2 and 3 are SD-SDI sources and output
channels 1, 2 and 3 are SD-SDI display devices. Input channels 4, 5 and 6
are HD-SDI sources and outputs 4, 5 and 6 are HD-SDI display devices.
Establishing groups like these prevents an input from Group 2 from being accidentally
switched to a Group 1 output.
Note
Grouping inputs and outputs does not establish a route. The
input source for a particular output still must be established
using the Video Switching procedure. In addition, there can
be only one input routed to any output or group of outputs.
There are two methods available for grouping inputs and outputs:
•
The manual method, using the MatrixPRO front panel. Refer to the “Manual
Grouping” section for instructions.
•
The Graphical User Interface (GUI) method. In Chapter 4, refer to the “Grouping
Tab” section for details.
j~åì~ä=dêçìéáåÖ
„ Use the following steps to create an input/output group manually:
S Prerequisites: Assume that input channel 1 is routed to output channel 1.
No other inputs are assigned to any output.
1.
To add output channel 2 to output channel 1 (thus establishing an output group),
press and hold output channel 1 key, then press the output channel 2 key. Both
output keys light.
2.
To add output channel 3 to the output channel group, press and hold output
channel 1 key and press the output channel 3 key. All three output keys light.
3.
To add input channel 1 to the group, press and hold output channel 1 key and
press the input channel 1 key. All three output keys and the new input key light.
4.
To add input channel 2 to the group, press and hold output channel 1 key and
press the input channel 2 key. All three output keys and the two new input keys
light.
5.
To add input channel 3 to the group, press and hold output channel 1 key and
press the input channel 3 key. All three output keys and the three new input keys
light.
When an input/output group has been established, it has the following characteristics:
•
•
First, any single input in the group can be routed to the same three outputs.
•
Third, when that key is released, any input that is routed to the outputs will remain
illuminated.
Second, when any key in the output group is pressed and held, all members of the
input/output group will light up.

output. Now, when any output key is pressed and held all members of the group
will light up except for the channel that has been removed.
Please note:
30
•
If two or more input/output groups have been established, the members of each
can be viewed by pressing and holding one of the group's output keys.

Overview
lîÉêîáÉï
The MatrixPRO units built by Barco Folsom incorporate system software in a Flash
memory component. Flash memory allows easy software upgrades, without the need to
send the unit back to the factory.
The “loader” utility enables you to update the system’s Flash module with the latest revision
of software. The utility can be run from a computer with a hard drive (recommended) or a
floppy drive. Running the loader from a floppy drive is discouraged due to the slow speeds
associated with disk access.
e~êÇï~êÉ=oÉèìáêÉãÉåíë
The following list outlines hardware requirements for upgrading software:
•
•
IBM compatible computer with an available COM port
Serial cable conforming to EIA RS-232 specifications (e.g., standard modem
cable). The cable should have a DB-25 male connector on one end, and a DB-9
connector on the other end.
Note
This cable is available as an off-the-shelf, stocked item, Barco
Folsom part number: 14-9760047-00.

The MatrixPRO will respond with a “#” prompt when the command processor is ready for a
command. The command syntax is shown below
cmd arg1 arg2 … argn<cr>
Table B-2. RS-232 Command Syntax
Command
Description
cmd
cmd is any valid MatrixPRO command, typically 2 to 6 alphabetic
(non numeric) characters
arg
argument1, argument2, … argument"N" are required or optional
parameters depending on the command used.
<cr>
carriage return (ASCII 13) terminates the command
Please note:
•
A space (ASCII 32) must be inserted between the command and any arguments
that follow. A space must also be inserted between all argument parameters,
except for the last argument in the chain.
•
All commands in RS-232 mode must be terminated with a carriage return (ASCII
13). The carriage return will tell the command processor to begin execution of the
command.
•
Query commands will return the following:
=result
#
The “=” indicates that a result from a query command is following. The “result” will
follow directly after the “=”. The value of the result will vary depending on the
query command used. A new line will be generated and the prompt (#) will
indicate the system is ready for a new command.

RS-485 Mode
opJQUR=jçÇÉ
To switch to RS-485, refer to the “RS-232 Settings Menu” section in Chapter 3. Single
commands will be combined with a command delimiter start, device number, command
separator and command delimiter end to form a command string as shown below:
•
Single Command Format:
cdsidcmd arg1 arg2 ..argncde
•
Multiple Command Format:
cdsidcmd arg1 arg2 ..argn,idcmd arg1 arg2
..argN,…,idcmd arg1 arg2 ..argncde
Table B-3. RS-485 Command Syntax
Command
Description
cds
cds is the command delimiter start character '*' (ASCII 42).
id
id is the device number in the range of 1 to 32. This can be a single
character for values less than 10, no preceding zero is required.
cmd
cmd is any valid Graphics Board command, typically 2 to 6
characters in length
arg
arg1,2,N is any required or optional parameters need for the
command
,
separates multiple commands
cde
cde is the command delimiter end character '!' (ASCII 33).
S Example:
*12XYZ A 9,9PDQY 1234,31WX 200 98!
The command string is started by the command delimiter start character “*”. The first
command follows directly after the command delimiter start character. The example shows
that device 12 should process the XYZ command with A and 9 as parameters. A comma
(ASCII 44) separates the commands. Device 9 will process the PDQY command with a
parameter of 1234 and device 31 will process the WX command with parameters of 200
and 98. The command end delimiter character “!” follows directly after the last command to
end the command string.
Commands received in the command string will not be processed until the command end
delimiter character “!” is received. This format allows commands to be stacked up for
transmission to a single device or multiple devices and executed when the cde “!” character
is received by all units. Any incomplete or unknown commands will be ignored. The
maximum number of commands that can be stacked up per unit is 16. Each unit will only
stack those commands assigned to it, even though all units receive the same command
string.
During queue processing, no input buffer processing is performed. Characters sent
through the serial port during queue processing are still stored in the input buffer. If
hardware flow control is not observed, it is important to guarantee that the input buffer limit

is not exceeded before completion of the last command string.
Note
The command queue does not support backspace
characters.
To minimize bus traffic the command words should be kept as short as possible. The units
will not respond with prompts or any command error conditions. Echo mode will be
disabled when RS-485 mode is selected.
