INSTALLATION
Installation
Installation – 1 Video Source
The modular design of UltraVista allows for multiple extensions units to be added and the flexibility to adapt to any
video wall installation size. Figure 3 shows a typical example of a 2 x 2 video wall with a single video source.
Connect all UltraVista units together with the enclosed short serial cables. Connect the lower serial port (board B) of
the main unit to the upper serial port (board A) of the first extension unit. When installing more than one extension
unit, connect all the units by connecting the “B” serial port of one unit to the “A” port of the next.
Connect the video source to a video splitter, and connect the splitter’s outputs to the channel 1 inputs (labeled “1”) on
all UltraVista main and extension unit. If you want to use two video sources, connect the second video source in the
same manor to the channel 2 inputs from a second DVI/VGA splitter. (See Figure 4)
Connect the monitor outputs on the main and extension unit to the displays.

When all connections have been made, the system must be first initialized. The initialization process sets up the
communication between the UltraVista main and all extension units.
When applying power to the system, apply power to video splitters first before turning on the video sources. This
enables the video sources to read the UltraVista units’ EDID (display information) data.
To initialize the system, open the OSD menu by pressing the SELECT and EXIT buttons on the front panel of the
UltraVista main unit until the OSD menu displays (approximately 3 seconds)
Enter the SYSTEM menu, by pressing the SELECT button. Then enter the INITIALIZE sub-menu. Press SELECT to
initialize the system. The system will then detect the units connected, and initialize the communication between units.
After a few seconds, the menu will display the number of detected units.
Use the buttons to
select SYSTEM and press
the SELECT button
Press exit and select
to display the OSD
If the number of connected units detected does not match the number of units in the system, verify that all cabling
and connections are in place, all units are powered on, and then initialize the system again.
Once initialized, the configuration and presets can be set-up to produce the desired display layout and effects.

UltraVista offers two types of presets, basic and free. Basic presets are used where the display of a video source is
arranged in a regular grid and setup is performed using the OSD.
Free presets offer the greatest flexibility for creating eye catching displays. You can freely position the displays and
use different display types like CRT’s, flat panel displays or projectors. The free presets are set-up using UltraVista’s
control program. The example below shows one way to display four video sources.

Basic Preset Set-up
Basic presets are used for creating a video wall with displays of the same type and size arranged in a grid pattern
where all gaps (horizontal and vertical) between the displays are equal.
To define the Basic presets, call up the OSD by pressing the “EXIT” and “SELECT” buttons simultaneously for 3
seconds. When the OSD displays, use the buttons to select (highlight) “SYSTEM” and press the select button.
The system menu will display as shown below. Select “PRESET TYPE” and from that menu, select “BASIC”. Next
select “PRESET” and define the parameters for each preset (1 – 4) and sub-presets (F1 or F2 if needed).
NOTE: THE SYSTEM MUST FIRST BE INITIALIZED PRIOR TO DEFINING THE PRESETS.
To define a basic preset, set the Preset

Using different setups, you can design very creative layouts. By defining Extn-1A as a 1 x 1, you get the full video in
position 3 giving a Picture-in Picture effect. As you can see, you can design a simple video wall, design arches,
zigzags, or other unique video wall designs. Different monitor sizes or types and multiple video sources also can
produce interesting effects. By selecting a wall size that is larger than the actual video wall, you get a zoom effect.
Video wall presentations using UltraVista makes creating these and other video effects simple and easy.

UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
Gap compensation
When laying out and assembling a video wall, there are usually gaps between the different displays. Usually the
horizontal and vertical gap between displays is the same but in some cases, they are different. UltraVista’s design
can compensate for these gaps to produce a smooth natural transition from one display to the next. Setting the gap
compensation will hide some parts of the input image. If the entire image needs to be displayed, leave the gap width
settings at 0. If the display area needs to be made larger simply increase the distance between the displays and
compensate the gap settings to produce a natural and distortion-free display.
Equal gaps
Larger Vertical gap
Larger Horizontal gap
Setting the gap width
To calculate and set the gap width, first determine UltraVista’s video output resolution. To determine this, call up the
OSD (Press “EXIT and SELECT” buttons). Select “CONSOLE” from the menu and press “SELECT”. From the
Console menu, select “VIDEO OUTPUT” and press “SELECT”. The OSD will display the output resolution as shown
below. In this example, the resolution is 1920 x 1200.
Figure 9. OSD - Video output
Next measure the visible width and height of the actual output image of the display. For example, the image
width is 49.5 cm and the image height is 31 cm.
Calculate the horizontal pixel density by dividing the horizontal resolution (1920) by the image width (49.5 cm) and
the vertical pixel density by dividing the vertical resolution (1200) by the image height (31cm).
1920
1200
Horizontal pixel density = ------- = 38.8 px/cm
Vertical pixel density = ------- = 38.7 px/cm
49.5
31
In most cases, the horizontal and vertical pixel density will be equal. This calculation is an approximant value so
round the value off and use a pixel density of 39 px/cm. You can fine tune the gap settings if needed.
Next measure the gap between the two adjacent images. In this example, the vertical gap is 3.6 cm and the
horizontal gap is 4.0 cm.
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
11
Next determine the number of pixels between the adjacent images by multiplying the gap by the pixel density.
Horizontal gap pixels = 4.0 cm X 39 px/cm = 156 px
Vertical gap pixels = 3.6 cm X 39 px/cm = 140.4 px
Since these values are close approximations, round the numbers off to 156 and 140.
To set the gap width, press the “Select” and “Exit” buttons to open the OSD. Use the buttons and select
“System” and press the select button. From the “System” menu, select “GAP” and press the select button to display
the Gap compensation menu as shown below.
Select Horizontal and enter the determined value then select Vertical and enter this value. In this example the values
would be 156 and 140.
Figure 10. Gap compensation menu
An easy way to verify the gap settings is use a picture with a diagonal line and display the line image across two
adjacent displays. Use a ruler or other straight object to check if the lines are aligned. If not, adjust the gap to align
the two images.
Jump between screens
(Line should follow the
dotted line)
No jump between screens
(Compensating for the
gap, the transition from
screen to screen is a
straight line)

Free Presets
Using the Free Preset feature of UltraVista offers the greatest flexibility in designing a unique video wall. Your
display can be a mix of any type of display, flat panel, CTRs, LCD TVs, or video projector. The displays can be any
screen size, resolution, aspect ratio, digital or analog. The UltraVista control program must be used to define the free
presets. To use the free preset feature, set the “SYSTEM, PRESET TYPE” in the OSD menu to “Free”.
Figure 11. Preset Type – Free
Install the UltraVista Control program supplied on the CD on a windows PC. To install UltraVista Control, just copy
the “Control Program” folder from the CD to your hard disk. The Control programs will take up approximately 500k of
disk space.
UltraVista Control screen
To use the UltraVista Control program, connect the Windows PC the control program was installed on to UltraVista
using the supplied serial cable. Connect the DB9F end of the serial cable to the PC’s COM port (1, 2, etc).
You can design the video wall using the control program without connecting the PC to UltraVista. Once designed, it
can be saved and when you connect the PC to UltraVista, the saved design is automatically transferred to UltraVista
as soon as the program is connected.
Start the UltraVista Control program by executing the Control program, “UltraVistaControl.exe”. Figure 12 shows an
example of the UltraVista Control program.

Input channel settings
First, configure the settings for the input channels according to your video sources. To change input
channel settings, go to “Video Input Channels.” in the main menu. In this menu, you can choose the input
aspect ratio, and change the picture that is displayed as a background image.
Setting the correct aspect ratio ensures distortion-free display on your video wall.Four aspect ratios are
commonly used:
Aspect ratio

Common aspect ratios and resolutions
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual

Set the input aspect ratio according to the resolution of your video sources.
A background image that shows the content to display on the video wall will make creating presets easier
by giving you a realistic preview in the Preset Edit View.
We recommend you import a frame from your video, or a screenshot of the computer you want
to show on the video wall. The background image must be a Bitmap file (with extension “.bmp”).
After configuring the input channels, set the values for your displays.
Editing display parameters
For each output screen connected to the system, there are a number of parameters that control what is
displayed on the screen. These settings can have different values from preset to preset. Use the Edit
window to control these settings. The item Edit... in the context menu of the displays opens the Edit
Window.
The below settings can be selected per preset for each display:
Position and Size
Aspect Ratio
Input Channel
Output position
20
Position and size of the section of the input image this display shows.
These values are in coordinate system units ranging from 0 to 9999.
Optional; a fixed aspect ratio which the program will maintain.
This prevents distortion of the image by ensuring the section from the input image always
has the correct aspect ratio
Which input channel to display
The output resolution
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
Position in input image
Specifies the part of the input image to display on the screen. Obtaining these values involves some
calculations, which are described in section position and size.
Aspect ratio
This setting controls the way the UltraVista Control program allows screens to be resized. If a fixed aspect
ratio is chosen, the program always maintains that ratio. For a more detailed discussion of aspect ratios,
see POSITION AND SIZE
Output video mode
This setting controls the output video mode, i.e. resolution and refresh rate of one display. For each
display in your setup, you can choose a different video mode.
Note:
Since a display does not change from preset to preset, setting the output resolution of a display affects
that display across all presets.
In the Edit window, you can specify the section of the input signal to be displayed by the screen. You can
also change the aspect ratio and choose which channel to display. The settings in the boxes labeled
“section in input image”, “aspect ratio”, and “input channel” apply to the active preset only (selected in the
tool bar). The settings in the “display” box apply to the selected display across all presets.
Note
We recommend setting the output resolution to your display’s native resolution, and setting the aspect
ratio to “as display”. This ensures that the displays will show distortion-free video as you move and resize
them. From the context menu, you can also set the channel and aspect ratio for a display, without having
to use the Edit window. Setting the correct aspect ratio for a display ensures that the output image will not
be distorted on that display.
Saving and loading presets
Presets are stored on the UltraVista system automatically. When the control program is connected to the
UltraVista units, all changes you make to presets will be applied to the UltraVista system as you make
them, and the effects will be visible immediately on the video wall. To save your presets on a computer,
use the menu items “File . Save” or “File . Save As...”.Saved files have the file name extension “.vmc”.
Each save file stores four presets, each with three sub-presets, for a total of twelve presets per save file.
By using multiple save files, you can save any number of presets.
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
21
To load a preset, choose “File . Load...” from the main menu. When the control program is connected to
the UltraVista system, the loaded presets will be stored on the UltraVista system immediately after
loading.
Size and position are specified in relative units. This means that the units do not directly correspond to
pixel values, they are relative to the width of the input image.
A width of 9999 is exactly as wide as the input image. Because displays are not quadratic, but rectangular,
the height of the input image in units depends on the input video mode.

The input image is vertically centered in the coordinate system, which means that the visible portion of the
image will begin at a y-value greater than 0. The exact value depends on the aspect ratio. This way, if the
input video mode changes, the displays will remain centered on the input image. The advantage of this
system is that it is resolution-independent. A preset for a UXGA (1600x1200) input signal will work equally
with input signals in XGA (1024x768), SVGA (800x600), or VGA (640x480).
Even if the input aspect ratio changes, the same preset will still result in a viewable image, although
possibly with black borders at the top and bottom.
22
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
Note
The units are equal in the vertical and horizontal directions, and are relative to the
horizontal resolution.
For example, if the input signal has a resolution of 1920x1200, then a width of 9999 U will be 1920 pixels
(a height of 9999 U will be also be 1920 pixels, resulting in black borders at the top and bottom of the
image).
The simplest analogy for the units is to think about them as percentage values of the input signal
width. 5000 U would be 50% of the input image width, for example, or 7278 U would be 72.78%.
Note
The values for size and position specify the coordinates of the section from the input image a display
shows. This means that reducing the width and height of a rectangle in the Edit View will cause the display
to zoom in and show a smaller portion
SETTING UP A VIDEO WALL –
FREE PRESETS
To set up a video wall with a free setup, follow the steps below.
When you have decided the video wall layout, that is, the size and location of the displays, connect all
components, including input sources, UltraVista units, displays, and the external control PC with the
UltraVista Control program.
1. Set input aspect ratio.
Find out the aspect ratio of input channels 1 and 2.
Refer to section Input channel settings for a table of common resolutions and their aspect ratios.
In the UltraVista Control program, go to “Video . Input Channels...” in the main menu. In the window, set
the aspect ratios for the input channels.
2. Set output resolution for each display.
Find out the native resolution for your displays. Open the Edit window from the context menu for each
display, and set the output resolution to the native resolution of your display.
3. Measure physical video wall size.
Measure the width and height of your video wall. Measure from the edge of the leftmost display to the
edge of the rightmost display, and from the top edge of the topmost display to the bottom of the display at
the bottom. When measuring, take care to measure only the visible section of the screens, that is,
exclude the frames around the displays at the video wall’s edges.
Calculate your video wall’s aspect ratio to help you define the section of the input image you want
to display on your video wall. Usually, the ratio will differ from the input aspect ratio.
Note:
Up to this point, the settings you have obtained apply to the video wall, and are the same for all presets
you will create for that particular wall. Steps 4-8 apply to one particular preset. Repeat these steps for
each preset you want to set up.
4. Define size of input image section to display
This step describes settings to show as much as possible of the input image on a video wall, without black
bars at the sides or top and bottom.
First, compare the aspect ratio of your video wall to the aspect ratio of the input image. The fastest way to
do this is to divide the width by the height for the video wall and for the input image, and compare the
results. If the resulting value for the video wall is higher than the input image, the video wall is wider than
the input image. In this case, choose the width of the input image section as 9000 units. The input image
section is intentionally smaller than the full width of 9999 units, to leave some space for corrections. If the
aspect ratio of the video wall is less than that of the input image, the video wall is higher than the input
image.
In this case, look up the height of the input image in units in the table in section Units .
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
23
Subtract 10%, to leave space around the edges for fine-tuning.
The result is the height of the input image section.
Refer to the following table as a quick guide to help you decide the video wall size.
ww width of the video wall
hw height of the video wall
wi width of the input image
hi height of the input image

Height = 7200 U
4:3
Height = 6750 U
16:9
Height = 5100 U
16:10
Height = 5625 U
5. Calculate units per centimeter
Now, calculate how many units your video wall has per centimeter. Doing this depends on whether you
have set the height or the width in the previous step.
If you set the width in step 4, take the video wall width in centimeters from step 3, and the width of the
input image section in units from step 4.
If you set the height, simply use the height values instead of the widths. Divide the input image section
width by the video wall width. The result is how many units your video wall has per centimeter.

UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
7. Place displays
Next, use the Edit View in the UltraVista Control program to drag the displays in the same arrangement as
the displays in your video wall. The best way to do this is with the input video source already connected,
so you can verify if the image on the video wall looks correct. Use this step to get a rough impression of
the arrangement of the displays, and to preview where the parts of the input image appear on your screen.
The screens need not be perfectly aligned in this step – you will compute exact coordinates in the next
step.
When you are satisfied with the way the content is displayed on the video wall, go to the next step.
8. Measure coordinates for each display
To obtain the x coordinate for a display, measure the distance of the left edge of the display from the left
edge of the video wall, that is, the left edge of the leftmost display.
For the y coordinate, measure from the top of the topmost display.
Convert the values measured from centimeters to units by multiplying with the density D in units per
centimeter, and adding the x coordinate of the leftmost display (for the x coordinate), or the x coordinate of
the topmost display as offset.
For each display, enter the values for position and size (from step 6) in the Edit window in the UltraVista
Control program.
9. Fine-tune
After you have entered all values for all the displays, you may see some misalignment on your video wall.
This is due to small errors in measurement, and can be corrected by fine-tuning.
To fine-tune, connect a test PC to the UltraVista system as an input source. Create a test image to display
on the video wall. The test image should have two kinds of lines. Straight horizontal and vertical lines help
you fine-tune the size and alignment of displays. Diagonal lines that cross display boundaries help you
fine-tune the distance between displays.
Choose one of the displays as a starting point, and use it as a reference to fine-tune the location of the
other displays one by one.
10. Save
Use the menu item “File . Save” to save your preset.

UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
Step 1: Set input aspect ratio
The output resolution of our PC is 1920x1080, which has an aspect ratio of 16:9.
Step 2: Set output resolution for each display
Determine the native resolution for each display, and set it in the Edit window.
Step 3: Measure physical video wall size
Next measure the width and height of our video wall. Measure from the edge of the leftmost display to the
edge of the rightmost display, and from the top edge of the topmost display to the bottom of the display at
the bottom. Take care to measure only the visible section of the screens, that is, exclude the frames
around the displays at the video wall’s edges.
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
29
Step 4: Define size of input image section to display
The visible area of the monitor wall has an aspect ratio of 220 cm : 120 cm, or 16.5 : 9. To compare the
aspect ratios of the input image and the video wall, we divide the width by the height.
120 cm / 220 cm = 1.8333
Video wall:
Input Image:
16 / 9 = 1.7778
This means the video wall is a little wider than our 16:9 input image. We choose the width of the video wall
to be equivalent to 9000 units.
Step 5: Calculate units per centimeter
Divide the width of the input image section, 9000 U, by the width of the wall, 220 cm, to get the density of
our video wall, 9000 U / 220 cm = 40.909 U/cm , 40.909 units per cm.
Step 6: Measure size for each display
To calculate the sizes for all displays, we need to measure the physical size of the displays in the
Taking the center display as an example, we measure the width (76.5 cm) and height (43 cm) of the
display. Take care to always measure the active part of the screen, not the frame.
The pixel density of the video wall is 40.909 U/cm, so we can transform the physical size into coordinates
by multiplying with the density.
width:
76.5 cm . 40.909 U/cm = 3129.54 U≈3130 U
30
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
The display’s native resolution (HDTVp, 1920x1080), so we do not need to
calculate the height of the screen.
When you enter the output resolution and set the aspect ratio
to “as display”, the program will automatically adjust the height
of the section according to the width and aspect ratio.
Next set the values in the Edit window.
Repeat for all displays.
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
31
Step 7: Place displays
Now all displays have the correct size, place the displays by drag and drop in the Edit view until there is an
approximation of the image to show on our video wall.
Note the x-coordinate of the leftmost display, and the y-coordinate of the topmost display.
These coordinates will be the offset values we have to add to our measurements.
The offset values are X:253 units and y: 2387 units
Step 8: Measure coordinates for each display
Next, measure the distance from the topmost and leftmost displays for each display in the video wall.
32
UltraVista Installation and Operations Manual
Convert the coordinates by multiplying the values with the density of the video wall, 40.909 U/cm.
Add the offsets obtained in the previous step to the coordinates.
x-coordinate:
54 cm . 40.909 U/cm + 253 U = 2209.086 U + 253 U≈2462U
y-coordinate:
36 cm . 40.909 U/cm + 2387 U = 1472.424 U + 2387 U ≈ 3859 U
Enter the coordinates for this display in the Edit window.
Repeat for all displays.
Step 9: Fine-tune
Finally, create a test image, and fine-tune all displays. Example of the test images could look like this:
This image is created in a way that ensures at least two horizontal and two vertical lines are on each
display.
