Smart Vu Overview
The Smart Vu front panel is comprised of several sections, each carefully labeled and self explanatory,
corresponding to all of the machine’s versatile functions.
The STANDBY button (1) will allow users to turn the device on and off once the main outlet switch (11) is
turned on. The menu screen (2), menu scroll knob (4), and Control section (3) will give users access to the
Smart Vu menu. The Layer Selection section (6) will allow users to select which layer the Smart Vu will work
on, while the Input Selection section (5), determines which of the 7 available input sources will be used in
that layer. The FREEZE button (7) allows users to take a snapshot of the displayed image. The TAKE button
(10) of the Smart Vu will display your Preview screen to the Main output (17). The EFFECT button (8) and
the PRESET button (9) are both shortcuts to Smart Vu menu functions (Layer Effects and Presets).
The rear panel of the Smart Vu will let you connect all of your input sources and outputs to the device. Plug
universal analog sources (14), DVI-I sources (15) and SD/HD-SDI sources (16) to your Smart Vu. Connect a
DVI or universal analog projection device to your Smart Vu video outputs (17), audio inputs and outputs (18
and 19), and a remote controller to the IP/LAN connector (13).
* NOTE * : the Preview Output of the Smart Vu does not come standard, it is available as an option (OPTMMS-Preview) to be ordered with the unit.

WORKING WITH THE SMART VU
Setting up the Smart Vu
The following setup is an example of a typical Smart Vu configuration for an event or roadshow, but can of
course be modified according to your specific needs:
Connect all of your sources (PC, video camera, streaming server, DVD player...) to the appropriate input
connectors at the rear of the unit (see “The SmartVu rear panel” p.22 of the User Manual).
Connect your main output to the video projector for audience viewing, and your preview output (Optional) to
a monitor for preview purposes (see “Connecting the SmartVu”, p.21 of the User Manual). Turn all input and
output devices on.
Connect the supplied AC power cord to the unit, then connect the other end of the cord to a grounded AC
outlet. Power up the Smart Vu by pressing the I/0 button at the rear of the unit, and wait for the menu to run its
startup sequence. The unit is on and ready to function when the System Menu appears on your VFD screen.
