Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
Digital Video Processor
Digital Video Processor:
C2N-DVP4DI
Introduction
Features and Functions
The C2N-DVP4DI Digital Video Processor can simultaneously display four
windows, with any combination of high-resolution computer or video sources, on a
single large high-resolution monitor, projector or plasma screen, while also operating
as an integrated seamless switcher, mouse and touchpanel control.
The C2N-DVP4DI accepts both digital and analog inputs with RGB (VGA)
resolutions up to 1600 x 1200, as well as NTSC/PAL composite, S-video, and
component video sources. The output can be scaled from 800 x 600 to 1600 x 1200
to match the desired display resolution. Built-in flexibility provides the ability to
change window sizes and aspect ratios, as well as simultaneous display of multiple
input resolutions. Coupled with its seamless switching, these features make the C2NDVP4DI ideal for information-intensive applications like command and control
centers.
For flexibility in designing applications, the C2N-DVP4DI can be controlled by a
variety of pointing devices, including a serial mouse or touch-sensitive screen
overlay connected via RS-232. The C2N-DVP4DI also contains its own video and
computer annotation (built-in telestrator).
The breakthrough 2-Series control engine is based on the 257 MIPS, 32-bit Motorola
ColdFire processor. The standard 68MB memory (32MB SDRAM, 4MB flash
ROM, 32MB compact flash) can be enhanced by replacing the supplied compact
flash with a larger flash memory, to allow an on-board storage of programs, room
and equipment profiles, upgrades, databases, and schedules.
The internal 10/100 BaseT Ethernet supports static IP and dynamic addressing,
TCP/IP and UDP/IP. The built-in Web Server uses memory storage on a compact
flash card for remote access and control.
NOTE: The C2N-DVP4DI is a complex device containing a powerful processor,
touchpanel and A/V controller. When there are conflicting commands between these
functions, the C2N-DVP4DI will always allow the controller priority.
NOTE: The C2N-DVP4DI is not usable by X-Generation control systems.

Crestron recommends that the C2N-DVP4DI be the only device connected to the Crestron
power supply (CNPWS-75, not included). Do not use a 2-Series system (AV2, PRO2, etc.) as a
power source. Because of surge current, do not use a power supply smaller than 75 watts.
2.
TMDS (Transmission Minimized Differential Signaling) is a transmission method for sending
digital information to a flat panel display. TMDS is a variation of LVDS (Low Voltage
Differential Signaling), the standard interface used for notebook PCs.
3.
You can also use a Logitech MouseMan compatible 3-button serial mouse. PS2/serial (or USB)
mouse is incompatible, even with a 9-pin adapter. Refer to “Connecting a Pointing Device” on
page 60 for additional mouse installation information.
4.
The C2N-DVP4DI occupies two rack spaces. Crestron recommends allowing ventilation above
and below the unit.
NOTE: Crestron® software and any files on the website are for Authorized Crestron
dealers only. New users may be required to register to obtain access to certain areas
of the website (including the FTP site).
Physical Description
The C2N-DVP4DI, shown in the following illustration, is housed in a black metal
enclosure. All RS-232, video, LAN, and Cresnet® connectors are on the back panel.
The supplied racking mounting ears can be attached at the shorter sides of the unit.
Two holes per ear are for inserting the rack mounting screws. The ears can be
removed to reduce the size of the C2N-DVP4DI. If the ears are removed, the
provided rubber feet can be mounted on the under side to stabilize the unit on a flat
surface. The front panel has a PWR (green) LED and a NET (yellow) LED. The
PWR LED illuminates when power is applied to the unit. When functioning in the
master mode, the NET LED blinks when transmitting or receiving data from Cresnet.
When functioning as a slave, this LED blinks when the unit is polled. This will
generally be frequent enough to appear to be on steady.

NOTE: The Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a digital video connectivity standard.
This standard offers two different connectors: one with 24 pins (DVI-D) that handles
digital video signals only, and one with 29 pins (DVI-I) that handles both digital and
analog video. The C2N-DVP4DI uses the 29-pin DVI-I standard.
NOTE: RGB is a computer signal that uses the standard High Density (HD-15) 15pin connector. It is comprised of three analog video signals: red, green, blue and
separate horizontal and vertical syncs. Most computer monitors use RGB (usually
called VGA, SVGA, XVGA, etc.).
NOTE: The C2N-DVP4DI outputs both an RGB computer signal and a DVI (Digital
Video Signal). To output RGB, use the DVI/RGB adaptor and use the standard VGA
HD-15 cable (use a better quality cable for best resolution). Poor quality cables can
affect the performance of the C2N-DVP4DI.

Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
NOTE: To output DVI, connect directly from the DVI connector of the C2NDVP4DI to the display device using a standard DVI-D cable.
NOTE: Maximum length of a DVI cable is 15.4 feet (3 meters).
G. INPUT DVI/RGB (4 female) – allows RGB or DVI video input. Input resolution
from 640 x 480 to 1600 x 1200 (RGB) or 640 x 480 to 1280 x 1024 (DVI) 31.5 to 64
Hz. RGB to DVI adapters (4) for RGB input are supplied.
H. VIDEO INPUT 1-4 (BNC) – allows composite, component or S-video input. You
may have 12 composite video inputs, four S-video inputs, four component video
inputs, or some combination of the three. Each S-video input requires two BNC
connectors, for example, if you are using two S-video inputs, then there are eight
composite video inputs remaining.
A
Y
B
Y
PB
C
C
PR
S-video inputs must use the same pair of B (Y) and C (C) BNC connectors.
Each component video connection requires a set of three BNC connectors, Y, PB,
and PR, and must use the same group of A, B, and C connectors. Component video
can only be 480i. Component video 480p, 720p, and 1080i must be converted to
RGBHV.
NOTE: Composite video is a type of video signal in which all information – the red,
green, and blue (horizontal and vertical sync) signals are mixed together.
NOTE: S-video contains two separate components, luma and chroma (also known
as Y and C signals respectively). The luma signal contains brightness, intensity, and
signal timing information. This signal contains all picture information except for
color. The chroma signal contains only the color information. You can see the
complete black and white image, without the chroma, by only feeding the luma
signal into a monitor.
NOTE: Component video is a method of transferring video information using
multiple, individual signals: luminance (Y), luminance minus blue (PB), and
luminance minus red (PR). Video information is transmitted in individual parts to
prevent errors due to combining and then separating the various parts of the color
video signal. The C2N-DVP4DI supports video standard 480i (480 lines, interlaced).
Component video uses three coaxial video cables with BNC connectors to transfer
the three signal components (refer to the “Appendix” on page 93 for additional
information about component video).
NOTE: RGBS consists of red, green, blue, and a composite sync. RGBHV consists
of red, green, blue, horizontal sync and vertical sync.
NOTE: HDTV and progressive scan component video must be converted to
interlaced RGBHV by a third party device and then applied to the DVI/RGB
connector.

MEMORY EXPANSION – provides for compact flash memory card. The C2NDVP4DI comes with a 32MB compact flash memory card (Crestron P/N COMFLS32M-1).
Memory
The C2N-DVP4DI has 36MB of built-in memory (non-volatile and volatile). A total
of 36MB is broken down as follows: 4MB flash (non-volatile), 32MB DRAM
(volatile), and 256KB NVRAM. The C2N-DVP4DI ships with 32MB of compact
flash installed. Flash memory contains the file system inside the 2-Series control
engine. Non-volatile memory contains information that is retained after loss of
electrical power. Volatile memory is lost after a power failure. Refer to the following
lists for a breakdown of memory usage for program-related information stored in the
unit.
File System
The file system inside the 2-Series control engine can be broken down into two parts.
The first part resides on the on-board flash memory and the second resides on the
external compact flash/microdrive card. The following is a brief description of the
file system structure.
The files that reside in the internal flash conform to a flat directory structure. The
compact flash system contains a fully FAT32 compatible file system to allow the
same compact flash card to be used in a Windows® environment. The following table
presents the structure of the overall file system.

to any fully qualified path from the Windows environment. For example, if the file in
Windows is “\MyDirectory\MySubdirectory\MyFile.ext”, the complete 2-Series path
for a file on the first Compact Flash slot (onboard) is:
“\CFØ\MyDirectory\MySubdirectory\MyFile.ext”
You do not have to create subdirectories for general files; you can put them in the
root of the Compact flash (\CFØ).
The only time subdirectories are required is when putting bootable projects on the
Compact Flash (\CFØ\SIMPL, \CFØ\SPLUS), but SIMPL Windows takes care
of that for you when you do the File | Copy to CF function. SIMPL Windows
makes the appropriate subdirectories. The same is true when you put web pages on
the Compact Flash. The tools create the appropriate directories.
Flash
The 4MB flash memory consists of approximately 1.5MB used for firmware, and
approximately 2.5MB available for SIMPL and SIMPL+®. The files that reside in
flash conform to a flat directory structure.

Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
Digital Video Processor
NOTE: If you extract NVRAM values to a file (Viewport, File transfer | Save
NVRAM to File), to simplify restoring them in the event of file corruption or to
distribute to identical control systems, remember that NVRAM values are position
sensitive in the program. When saving the NVRAM is crucial to your application, it is
recommended to place all symbols and/or modules that use NVRAM at the beginning
of your program. When NVRAM (.nvr file) is re-installed, all the values should line up
with the program. If the program is modified, and new logic that uses NVRAM is
placed before any older symbols using NVRAM, the previously stored values will not
line up and your presets will have to be re-entered.
NOTE: The new NVRAMDISK command (available in CUZ files later than 3.053),
will fail unless it can determine the amount of NVRAM used by the program, to ensure
that the NVRAM is not overwritten. Programs compiled in SIMPL Windows version
2.04.11 or later can provide this information. In the event of a failure of the
NVRAMDISK command, ensure that your program has been recompiled in an
appropriate version of SIMPL Windows and reloaded.
Volatile (DRAM)
NOTE: The DRAM memory runs all bit map files. To maximize loading speed of
backgrounds, keep the total page size to a maximum of 32 MB.
NOTE: To reduce the size of bit maps, make them 16 bit rather than 24 or 32 bit.
This will also reduce the load time of these files.
1.
Digital, analog and serial signal values (except as noted above).
2.
SIMPL+ Variables (Default if no options are specified, or if "volatile"
qualifier is used, or #DEFAULT_VOLATILE is used).
DRAM is used by the operating system for dynamic storage of variables, signals,
loading of pages and other constructs used at runtime. The actual amount of DRAM
used at any given time depends on the particular program that is running, i.e., usage
is variable, or dynamic, during normal operation.
NOTE: To check the size of the memory installed in the C2N-DVP4DI, use
Viewport and type the SHOWHW command.

Setup
Refer to the C2N-DVP4DI Operation Guide (Doc. 6112) for setup procedures and
configuration menus.
NOTE: Some of the following subsections use the Crestron Viewport. Refer to the
latest revision of 2-Series Console Commands (Doc. 6002) for console command
details.
Network Wiring
CAUTION: Crestron recommends that the C2N-DVP4DI be the only device
connected to the Crestron power supply (CNPWS-75). Connecting more devices
may cause the system to start up or operate improperly.
CAUTION: Crestron recommends that the C2N-DVP4DI be the only device
connected to the Crestron power supply (CNPWS-75, not included). Do not use a 2Series system (AV2, PRO2, etc.) as a power source. Because of surge current, do not
use a power supply smaller than 75 watts.
CAUTION: Use only Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment. Failure to
do so could cause equipment damage or void the Crestron warranty. Power
Requirement is 75 Watts @ 24VDC.
NOTE: When making wire connections, refer to the latest revision of the Cresnet
Network Interconnect Drawing (Doc. 5411). The document can be obtained from the
Downloads | Product Manuals section of the Crestron website (www. crestron.com).
NOTE: For larger networks (i.e., greater than 28 network devices), it may be
necessary to add a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (CNXHUB) to maintain signal quality
throughout the network. Also, for networks with lengthy cable runs or varying types
of network devices, it may be desirable to add a hub/repeater after only 20 network
devices.
When calculating the wire gauge for a particular Cresnet run, the length of the run
and the power factor of each network unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. If Cresnet units are to be daisy-chained on the run, the power factor of
each unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to determine the power factor
of the entire chain. If the unit is a home-run from a Crestron system power supply
network port, the power factor of that unit is the power factor of the entire run. The
length of the run in feet and the power factor of the run should be used in the
following resistance equation to calculate the value on the right side of the equation.
Resistance Equation
R < 40,000
L x PF
Where: R = Resistance (refer to table below).
L = Length of run (or chain) in feet.
PF = Power factor of entire run (or chain).
The required wire gauge should be chosen such that the resistance value is less than
the value calculated in the resistance equation. Refer to the following table.

Identity Code (Slave Mode on Cresnet)
All equipment and user interfaces within the network require a unique identity code
(NET ID). A two-digit hexadecimal number ranging from 03 to FE designates these
codes. The NET ID of each unit must match an ID code specified in the SIMPL
Windows program. The NET ID of the C2N-DVP4DI has been factory set to 54. The
NET IDs of multiple C2N-DVP4DIs in the same system must be unique and changed
from a PC via Viewport or from the setup menu of the C2N-DVP4DI, refer to the
latest version of the C2N-DVP4DI Operation Guide (Doc. 6112). Complete the
following procedure to change the NET ID. This is required if the C2N-DVP4DI is
to be a Cresnet slave. If the C2N-DVP4DI is to be used as a master or as an Ethernet
slave, set the Cresnet ID to 02. Refer to the setup information in the Operations
Guide (Doc. 6112), or use the following instructions.
NOTE: If configured as a Cresnet slave (ID 03 – FE) and as an Ethernet slave with
Set as Master checked in the IP Table Entry, the Ethernet slave takes priority.
NOTE: For detailed information on establishing communication between the PC
and control system, refer to the network’s control system Operations Guide.
1.
Ensure that the C2N-DVP4DI is the only device connected (verify that the
software is running) to the control system.
2.
Open Viewport. From the Viewport menu, select Functions | Set Network
ID. The software checks the baud rate and then opens the "Set Network ID"
window.
3.
In the "Set Network ID" window, select the C2N-DVP4DI from the Current
Network Devices text window.
4.
From the Choose the new network ID for the selected device (Hex): text
box; select the new NET ID for the C2N-DVP4DI.
5.

Troubleshooting Communications
NOTE: Establishing communication is covered in the C2N-DVP4DI Operations
Manual (Doc. 6112).
Use the following checklist if communication cannot be established with the C2NDVP4DI.
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
1.
Verify that you are using the correct cables. As described previously, an
RS-232 connection requires a straight-through serial cable. That is, pin 1 on
one end is connected to pin 1 on the other end. Pin 2 connects to pin 2, etc.
With a TCP/IP connection, you must use a CAT5 cable with 8-pin RJ45
connectors.
2.
With a serial connection, verify that the correct COM port on the PC has
been selected. Some computers have more than one COM port; some may
be internal (e.g., for a modem). Consult the manufacturer documentation for
further information about the COM ports on your PC.
3.
With a serial connection, reset the control system as follows:
a.
Open Viewport and click Setup | Communications Settings to display
the “Port Settings” window. Choose RS-232 as the connection type.
b.
Set the baud rate of the PC to 115200 (use with new .cuz files, version
3.0.17 and higher) or 57600 (use with older .cuz files).
Digital Video Processor: C2N- DVP4DI • 17
Digital Video Processor
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
4.
c.
Make sure that RTS/CTS is selected and click OK.
d.
If communication still cannot be established, reinitialize the unit by
recycling power (the unit takes approximately 25 seconds to reboot). If
the connection is established, the Viewport console should display
some text and the <DVP4DI> prompt.
e.
If communication still cannot be established, contact Crestron customer
service.
Verify that no other software is using the same COM port.
NOTE: If communication cannot be established, check that the correct cable is being
used. Also check that the Ethernet is enabled (refer to Main Menu | Diagnostics in
the Operation Guide).
Unique Viewport Commands
The following are some Viewport commands that are unique to the C2N-DVP4DI,
i.e., they can be accessed only through the C2N-DVP4DI prompt in Viewport.
NOTE: The Crestron Viewport utility performs multiple system tasks, primarily via
an RS-232 or TCP/IP connection between the control system and a PC. It is used to
observe system processes, upload new operating systems and firmware, change
system and network parameters, and communicate with network device consoles and
touchpanels, among many other tasks. Viewport can also function as a terminal
emulator for generic file transfer. All of these functions are accessed through the
commands and options in the Viewport menus. Therefore, for its effectiveness as a
support and diagnostic tool, the Crestron Viewport may be preferred over
development tools when uploading programs and projects.
To run these commands, establish communications between the PC and the C2NDVP4DI. Either launch the stand-alone version of Viewport, or start SIMPL
Windows or Crestron VisionTools® Pro-e (VT Pro-e), and from the menu bar, select
Tools | Viewport.
Input Calibration
This command determines how the video input is calibrated. To access this
adjustment, at the DVP4DI prompt, type input?
The input calibration commands are:
A – Auto Calibrate (normal mode). Sources are automatically calibrated the first
time only.
D – Default. Calibration relies on an internal predetermined set of values. This can
be quite useful when manual calibration has set the parameters too far out of
bounds by setting a starting point.
N – No calibration. No HDTV overscan, allows the full image (including the safe
TV areas) to be displayed.
L – Lock Calibrate. This selection causes the C2N-DVP4DI to perform auto
calibration every time the source is selected, even if it has done so already.

Pointing Device Calibration
CALTOUCH allows user to calibrate the C2N-DVP4DI to a touchscreen. Once a
touchscreen is connected, typing caltouch and pressing Enter at the C2NDVP4DI prompt puts the system in the calibration mode. You then follow the screen
prompts. You must perform a new calibration for each new touchscreen connected.
NOTE: The first time any touchscreen is selected, it is not operational until it is
calibrated. The calibration setting is not lost when switching between mouse and
touchscreen. The current calibration setting is lost when a new calibration is
performed.
NOTE: If you change the C2N-DVP4DI output resolution, you are required to
perform the calibration of the pointing device again.
Updating the Operating System
As with all 2-Series control systems, operating system files for the C2N-DVP4DI
have a .cuz extension. You can obtain .cuz updates (when available) from the
Downloads | Software Updates section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
To download a firmware update, click the .cuz file and choose the Save to Disk
option, then specify the directory where the update will be stored.
NOTE: In some cases Microsoft Internet Explorer® may append a .zip extension to
a downloaded .cuz file. For example, a file called "C2-1008.cuz" may appear as "C21008.cuz.zip." If this happens, rename the file, removing the .zip extension.
NOTE: Crestron software and any files on the website are for Authorized Crestron
dealers and Crestron Authorized Independent Programmers (CAIP) only. New users
may be required to register to obtain access to certain areas of the site (including the
FTP site).
To upload the new .cuz to the control system:
1.
Open Viewport and establish communication with the C2N-DVP4DI (refer
to “Establishing Communications with the Control System” in the latest
version of the C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide (Doc. 6112).
2.
Select File Transfer | Update Control System.
3.
Browse to the .cuz file and click Open to start the transfer.
4.
After the transfer is complete, the C2N-DVP4DI will automatically reboot.
To confirm the transfer, click Diagnostics | Check Ops Version. The
Viewport console should display the new .cuz version number.

This section explains how to configure a C2N-DVP4DI to communicate over
Ethernet using TCP/IP. These procedures assume that the C2N-DVP4DI has been
powered up and connected properly. The screen prompt for Ethernet slave is
ESLAVE_DVP4DI, the screen prompt for Cresnet slave is CSLAVE_DVP4DI. Use
Cresnet ID 02 for a master or Ethernet slave, and Cresnet ID 03 through FE for a
Cresnet slave.
CAUTION: Do not connect a Cresnet network to the C2N-DVP4DI when in
Ethernet slave mode.
Initial IP Setup
NOTE: This initial IP setup MUST be done via the RS-232 computer port. Before
performing the procedures in this section, refer to the “Cable Connection for
Programming” in the C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide (Doc. 6112) for cabling
instructions. Thereafter, communications may be established by using the Crestron
Viewport to directly connect to the IP address assigned to the C2N-DVP4DI. It is
assumed that the user has communications with the C2N-DVP4DI and the
appropriate update file has been loaded.

Other Crestron IP control devices on this network would require that their IP Address, IP Mask
and Default Router also be obtained from the MIS department or other network administrator.
If the Network consists of only Crestron equipment, the following Private Address Ranges are
recommended for use.

You will receive a confirmation message that the IP information has been
setup. After the system reboots, select Function | Set Control System IP
Information, to view the IP Information.
NOTE: If an error message that the Viewport could not setup the IP information
appears, verify that the C2N-DVP4DI has been updated to the minimum operating
system required for Ethernet functionality. If the C2N-DVP4DI still cannot set the IP
information, contact Crestron customer service for assistance.
IP Table Setup
Ethernet devices that are addressed by the C2N-DVP4DI may have their IP
addresses set either in the SIMPL Windows program (default IP Table) or through
the Crestron Viewport using a PC. Just as each Cresnet device is assigned a Cresnet
NET ID, e.g. 03 through FE, to be used when programming, an Ethernet device is
assigned an IP ID that also may range from 03 through FE. Ultimately, each IP ID is
converted into an actual IP address through an IP table that exists inside the C2NDVP4DI.

Adding Devices and IP Table Setup in SIMPL Windows
To add Ethernet devices to your program, in the SIMPL Windows Configuration
Manager, drag an Ethernet device into the program. Drop it on to the "Ethernet
Units" arrow underneath the "Cresnet Units" arrow. (If the arrow is not visible in the
System View window, pull the window divider down further.)
1.
Double click on the icon and assign an IP ID and a corresponding IP
address in the tabbed configuration window titled "IP Net Address".
2.
In the SIMPL Windows Program Manager, connect signals to the "Virtual
Touchpanel" symbol, exactly as you would to a regular wired Touchpanel
symbol.
NOTE: For more detailed information, refer to the SIMPL Windows help file by
selecting Help | Help Topics. Select the Index tab, type in IP Table, and then select
Adding Ethernet Devices to a SIMPL Windows Program.
When the SIMPL Windows program is compiled; the compiler creates an IP table
consisting of the IP IDs and the IP addresses for the various Ethernet devices. During
upload, choose whether to load this IP table or whether to use the table that already
exists in the C2N-DVP4DI.
Changing the IP Table via Viewport
You can modify the corresponding IP address for any IP ID without changing or
reloading the program by changing the IP table directly. From the Crestron
Viewport, select Functions | Setup IP Table then click the Retrieve Current IP
Table from Control System button. This will extract the IP table from the C2NDVP4DI and list it in the window. Modify or delete existing entries or add new ones.
When all the necessary changes have been made, save the new table to disk and/or
load it back into the unit. Do not overwrite the IP table in the C2N-DVP4DI the next
time the program is uploaded, unless the addresses in the program supercede those in
the current IP table.
NOTE: For more detailed information, refer to the SIMPL Windows help file by
selecting Help | Help Topics. Select the Index tab, type in IP table, and then select
Changing IP Addresses without Changing the Program.
About the IP Table
For the C2N-DVP4DI (or any Ethernet-enabled control system) to control devices
via Ethernet, the IP ID of the device must be associated with an IP address, and both
the IP ID and IP address must be entered into the IP table of the control system.
You can create an IP table in two ways. The first method is to double-click the
device in Configuration Manager to open the “Device Settings” window. Click the
IP Net Address tab and enter the IP address of the device in the IP Address field.
Repeat this procedure for all Ethernet devices in your system. This creates what is
referred to as a “default” IP table. When the program is compiled and ready to be
uploaded to the control system, you will have the option to upload this default IP
table.
The second method is to use the Crestron Viewport. This method is especially useful
on site if you want to change one or more IP addresses without changing the
program. Refer to “Ethernet Setup” on page 21 for more information.

Changing the IP Table via Viewport for Ethernet Slave Mode
As with all 2-Series control systems, the C2N-DVP4DI has the capability to function
as a peripheral device, or “slave”, in a master/slave arrangement with another control
system. Here the IP table of the C2N-DVP4DI must contain just one entry for the
master control system.
To access the IP table of a “slave” C2N-DVP4DI, use the Setup IP Table command
on the Viewport Functions menu. The settings are as follows:
•
Enter the IP ID of the C2N-DVP4DI itself, as specified in the program of
the master control system and select OK. Notice that the “slave” C2NDVP4DI is listed with TRUE in the Master? column.
•
Enter the IP address of the master control system.
•
Click the Set as Master check box.
IP Table Setup
When operating as a slave device, the C2N-DVP4DI can accept commands only
from one control system. Therefore, there must only be one entry in the IP table.
For further information about e-Control applications, including basic concepts and
terminology, refer to the Crestron e-Control Reference Guide, (Doc. 6052), available
in PDF format on the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
Crestron e-Control IP Table Information
It is extremely important that the IP ID in the SIMPL Windows program match the
IP ID encoded in the Crestron e-Control Software Development Kit (SDK) object by
the developer of the Web page, Visual Basic® or Crestron VT Pro-e browser
program.
NOTE: If configured as a Cresnet slave (ID 03 – FE) and as an Ethernet slave with
Set as Master checked in the IP Table Entry, the Ethernet slave takes priority.
If more than one PC uses the same IP ID for a connection (e.g., each loads the same
web page), the CNX Gateway will duplicate all packets that are received from the
C2N-DVP4DI to each of the identical IP IDs. This is known as touchpanel tracking.
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
Digital Video Processor: C2N- DVP4DI • 25
Digital Video Processor
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
The IP address that is typed into the virtual touchpanel devices in the SIMPL
Windows program is the IP address of the CNX Gateway, not of the individual PCs
(running a web browser or Active CNX application). This is because individual PCs
may change, but the CNX Gateway normally does not.
Communicating via Ethernet
NOTE: Before performing this procedure, refer to “Establishing Communication
with the C2N-DVP4DI, TCP/IP Connection” in the C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide
(Doc. 6112) for cabling instructions.
The Crestron Viewport may be used to communicate with the C2N-DVP4DI via
Ethernet. To connect the Viewport to the unit, perform the following procedure.
1. In the Viewport, select Setup | Communications Settings as shown to open
the “Port Settings” window.
Viewport Setup | Communications Settings
2. In the ”Port Settings” window, select TCP/IP from the Connection Type
field as shown in the following illustration and select Fixed from the IP

Troubleshooting Communications via Ethernet
You can PING the C2N-DVP4DI from a MS-DOS® prompt (Windows 95/98/Me) or
a Command Prompt (Windows NT/2000/XP). Ping means "to get the attention of" or
"to check for the presence of" another online device. Ping operates by sending a
packet to a designated address and waiting for a response.
The unit should reply and there should be no packet loss.
NOTE: Verify that the IP Settings of the C2N-DVP4DI are correct, and that the PC
used to ping the unit can ping other devices that are on the C2N-DVP4DI subnet.

NOTE: The following assumes that the reader has knowledge of SIMPL Windows.
If not, refer to the extensive help information provided with the software.
SIMPL Windows is the Crestron software for programming Crestron control
systems. It provides a well-designed graphical environment with a number of
workspaces (i.e., windows) in which a programmer can select, configure, program,
test, and monitor a Crestron control system. SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop
functionality in a familiar Windows environment. Digital, analog and serial join
numbers are a common thread between VT Pro-e and SIMPL Windows. These
numbers define how the objects on a touchpanel page of a VT Pro-e project interface
to the outside world, specifically the Cresnet system as defined in the SIMPL
Windows program. There are digital join numbers that carry out some predetermined
function (a logical high or low); analog join numbers for displaying incremental
values, sliders, gauges and bar graphs; and serial join numbers that allow for the
display of variable text and transmission/reception of serial commands from other
28 • Contents

Digital Video Processor
manufacturers. Unjoined objects are not interfaced with the system and thus cannot
initiate any functions.
Signal Types
Signals interconnect the various devices and logic symbols that comprise a SIMPL
Windows program. Signals can be one of three types: digital, analog, or serial. For
any given signal, the signal type is determined by its driving source. That is, if the
symbol that drives the signal has an analog output, then, by definition, the
connecting signal is analog.
In SIMPL Windows, the signal types are color-coded as follows:
Digital = Blue
Analog = Red
Serial = Black
Undefined/Other = Green
NOTE: “Other” signals are a combination of the three basic types (e.g., many
symbols accept either analog or serial signals where the combination is shown as a
green signal). The signal type is displayed on the Status Bar when the signal is
highlighted.
For additional information, refer to Doc. 6120, Crestron SIMPL Windows Symbol
Guide. It may be downloaded from the Downloads | Product Manuals | Software
section of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com).
Digital Signals: A digital signal contains one bit of information and usually takes on
one of two values: 1 or 0. These two digits can represent the logical values true and
false, and they can be represented in an electronic device by the states of on/off,
high/low, and recognized as two voltage levels (Other common descriptors are
active/inactive).
Analog Signals: Unlike digital signals, analog signals can vary continuously in
value, in the same manner as a parameter such as volume, temperature, or pressure.
Analog signals contain 16 bits of information, which means that this type of signal
can have values ranging from 0 to 65535 (216-1). This 16-bit property makes analog
signals useful for controlling devices that do not have discrete settings, such as
volume controllers, pan/tilt head controllers, and lighting dimmers.
Serial Signals: Serial signals are used to facilitate the transmission of serial data
(strings of characters). These signals can be generated by incoming data on a COM
port or by a symbol that has a serial output, such as a serial I/O symbol.
Programming Modes
The C2N-DVP4DI may be utilized two ways to perform different functions: Local
Processing mode (master) or Remote Processing mode (Cresnet or Ethernet slave).
As shown in the following graphic, the C2N-DVP4DI has been added to SIMPL
Windows as a master or slave device.

C2N-DVP4DI Cresnet Slave
C2N-DVP4DI Ethernet Slave
NOTE: The C2N-DVP4DI is set to Cresnet slave mode (ID 54) by default. SIMPL
Windows automatically changes NET ID values of a device added to a program if a
duplicate device or a device with the same NET ID already exists in the program.
Always ensure that the hardware and software settings of the NET ID match. For
NET ID hardware settings and details about changing the unit to master mode or
Ethernet slave mode, refer to “Interface Menu” in the latest version of the C2NDVP4DI Operations Guide (Doc. 6112).
Local Processing Mode (Master)
In the Local Processing mode, the C2N-DVP4DI is programmed to access and
control its local hardware ports. Use the Configuration Manager workspace (Project
| Configure System) in SIMPL Windows to select and configure all the devices that
need to be included into the system.
Configuration Manager is where programmers “build” a Crestron control system. In
Configuration Manager, drag the C2N-DVP4DI from the control systems folder of
the Device Library and drop it in System Views.
C2N-DVP4DI in SIMPL Windows’ Configuration Manager
Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Creston control system
by assigning signals to symbols. The following shows the C2N-DVP4DI symbols in
the SIMPL Windows Programming Manager.
Slot 1: C2I-TPS-DI
The C2I-TPS-DI slot allows the user to program digital, analog, and serial logic for a
built-in touchpanel Interface (TPI). Touchpanel projects created in VT Pro-e are
loaded into the compact flash through VT Pro-e or Viewport. Two new Device
Extender symbols are available for slot 1 for mouse input and output programming
(refer to page 61).

TPS-series touchpanels.
•
Maximum Touchpanel Digital joins: 4000
•
Maximum Touchpanel Analog joins: 4000
•
Maximum Touchpanel Serial joins: 999
Typically, touchscreen layouts are designed in VT Pro-e, where buttons and other
objects such as sliders and gauges are assigned join numbers that correspond to their
function in the application. The join numbers are equivalent to inputs and outputs,
such that when a VT Pro-e project is imported into SIMPL Windows, the previously
assigned join numbers appear automatically as defined signals.
Slot 2: C2I-COM5-232
The C2N-DVP4DI provides four ports that enable and configure RS-232 two-way
serial communication and logic, and one port for serial mouse and RS-232 touch
sensitive devices. To view the ports, expand Slot 2: C2I-COM5-232 is under the
C2N-DVP4DI icon on the lower window of System Views.
Slot 3: C2Net-Device
The C2Net-Device slot enables the C2N-DVP4DI to control up to 252 Cresnet
devices. Each Cresnet device is assigned a unique identifier called a Net ID, which is
a hexadecimal value ranging from 03 to FE.
To view the list of supported devices, expand the control system in the bottom pane
of System Views and double-click the C2Net-Device slot, or right-click and select
Add Item from the submenu. Supported devices include network control modules
and a variety of Crestron wired touchpanels.
To add a device to the system expand the C2Net-Device slot and double-click the
desired Net ID, or right click and select Add Item from the submenu. Then select the
device you want to add. Alternatively, you can drag the device from the Cresnet
Modules folder onto the Net ID.
In Program Manager, the C2Net-Device symbol contains no signals; to program a
controlled Cresnet device, expand the C2Net-Device symbol in Program View. Then
drag the device to Detail View.
Slot 4: C2ENET-1
The C2ENET-1 port enables the C2N-DVP4DI communication through Ethernet to
control up to 252 Ethernet devices. Each Ethernet device is assigned a unique
identifier called an IP ID, which is a hexadecimal value ranging from 03 to FE.
To view the list of supported devices, expand the control system in the bottom pane
of System Views and double-click the C2ENET-1 slot. Supported devices include
Ethernet control modules, PC and Web browser interfaces, and a variety of Crestron

drag the symbol to Detail View. (Alternatively, you can double-click the symbol.)
Slot 5: Front Panel
Slot 5 is a physical representation of the built-in front panel. No programming is
required.
Remote Processing Mode (Slave Mode)
In the Remote Processing mode, the C2N-DVP4DI does not contain a main control
system program. The program is installed in another 2-Series control system acting
as the host. The slots and Cresnet devices are accessed solely from the host control
system that generates all the proper network packets to control the hardware. For
example, to utilize a C2N-DVP4DI as a peripheral for a PRO2, C2N-DVP4DI
Remote Cresnet Processing is dropped on the C2Net slot (09) of the PRO2. The
C2N-DVP4DI device appears in the Program View as ID 54 as shown in the
following illustration.

When adding other devices to the system, right-click the device symbol in System
View, select Configure, the Net ID tab, and select or enter the desired Net ID.
Slot 2: C2I-COM5-232 of ID 54 contains Ports A-E, C2N-DVP4DI Two-way serial
drivers (A-D are for Com 1-4 ports, E is for Touchscreen/Mouse port). To change

Detail View of the C2N-DVP4DI Two way Serial Driver Symbol in SIMPL Windows’
Programming Manager (Slot 2)
Serial Driver symbols enable serial communication between devices on the Cresnet
network, using the RS-232 protocol.
The <tx$> (transmit) and <rx$> (receive) signals transmit serial data to and from the
COM port in whatever format is specified for the device in Configuration Manager.
The protocol that a device expects will be described in the manufacturer's
documentation and includes the speed of communication (baud rate), error checking
(parity), the number of data bits and stop bits, and any hardware or software
handshaking that may be required to control the flow of data between devices.
Some devices require a <break> to enable synchronization. The <break> input
drives the transmit pin of the associated COM port low, thus interrupting
transmission of data. The C2N-DVP4DI sends out approximately 20 bits of logic low
to do a break.
The <rts> (request to send) input and the <cts> (clear to send) output are hardware
handshaking signals for use in applications where explicit handshaking control is
required. These signals are enabled only when the Hardware Handshake setting of
the device is set to None in Configuration Manager.
For more information, refer to the SIMPL Windows help file.
Standby Timeout
Do not use Standby Timeout to turn off the display if you do not have a mouse or an
external touchpanel connected to the mouse port. To get around this, program an
external button to initiate sleep mode. A Device Extender symbol is available for this
purpose, the Touchpanel Sleep/Wake Manager. To locate this symbol, refer to page

Converting Programs and Modules Created for Other
Systems
SIMPL Windows can convert a program created for another type of control system
by simply changing the target to a C2N-DVP4DI.
NOTE: All modules must be 2-Series.
To do this, you can open a SIMPL program that contains a control system other than
the C2N-DVP4DI, and then replace the existing control system with the C2NDVP4DI. That is, drag the C2N-DVP4DI from the control systems folder onto the
existing control system in System Views, and click Yes when prompted to confirm
the replacement.
If the program contains SIMPL+ or User modules, the conversion might generate
error messages. This is because modules and programs often contain symbols with
“ambiguous” signals. For example, the inputs of the Serial to Analog symbol can be
defined as either analog or serial. Although X-Generation processors support
ambiguous signals, the 2-Series processor requires all signal types to be strictly
defined.
If the program you want to convert contains SIMPL+ or User modules, Crestron
recommends that you first convert each module before converting the larger
program. In this way, the compiler can resolve any ambiguous signals in the modules
and minimize errors when the larger program is converted.
If the program contains connections to ports or devices not supported by the C2NDVP4DI, the conversion finds network devices that match the port operation. If it
does not find a match, it reports an error.
Converting SIMPL+ Modules
1.
Open the SIMPL+ module you want to convert.
2.
Choose the 2-Series processor as the target by clicking the toolbar button, as
shown in the graphic.
SIMPL+ Toolbar
NOTE: You can select both X and 2-Series as the targets, so that the module will
work for both types of control systems. However, you are limited to SIMPL+
keywords and functions that are supported on both systems. If you do not choose a
target, then the module may or may not work, depending on the constructs that are
used.
3.
Save and compile the module by clicking the Save and Compile toolbar
button; alternatively, click Save and Compile on the Build menu (or press
F12).

Creating a C2N-DVP4DI Project with VT Pro-e
VT Pro-e acts as a simulator for creating touchpanel projects and permits the creation
of control screen variations incorporating two and three-dimensional graphics and
text. A set of pages, which make up a project, can be designed for each C2NDVP4DI touch-sensitive screen overlay application. Each page contains objects such
as custom control graphics, video windows, two and three-dimensional buttons,
sliders, and digital readouts which allow the user to interface with the control system.
The project is uploaded into the C2N-DVP4DI compact flash. The unit uses the
programmed project until another project is uploaded from a PC.
Creating a project for the C2N-DVP4DI is similar to creating a project for a TPS
touchpanel. It is recommended that you create a new project rather than coping a
touchpanel project to a C2N-DVP4DI. Once you have created a project for the C2NDVP4DI you can copy pages from the touchpanel to the C2N-DVP4DI.
Comparison of C2N-DVP4DI to TPS Touchpanels
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
•
RGB and video objects are exactly the same on the C2N-DVP4DI; on the
TPS touchpanel they are different objects.
•
The C2N-DVP4DI can display four different sources plus the background at
the same time from 12 different sources and transition the sources
seamlessly.
•
The C2N-DVP4DI has translucent objects.

•
Changing pages on the C2N-DVP4DI does not cause an effect to happen
unless a source also changes.
•
The C2N-DVP4DI does not support JNR (join Number Remapping).
•
The C2N-DVP4DI does not receive Serial Broadcast from indirect text
broadcast signal.
When creating a new VT Pro-e project for the C2N-DVP4DI select the C2NDVP4DI as the panel type. Go to Edit | Project Properties and select the Design
tab. Set the Panel size (horizontal/vertical pixels) to the native resolution of your
display device. Do this first before creating any pages. The output resolution of the
C2N-DVP4DI must match the native resolution of your display device, and the VT
Pro-e project must match the output resolution of the C2N-DVP4DI. If these
resolutions do not match, the video windows will not function properly.
To have the C2N-DVP4DI change an on-screen video source, create pages in VT
Pro-e containing a video window, and assign the video properties for the source,
size, transition and duration of the effect using the input select and default effect area
in the video properties window. When you want another video source to replace the
previous video source, page flip to the new page that has the required source. Page
flips can be generated from another panel or from a button press on the C2NDVP4DI. There are other ways to change the source on the screen and are described
later in the manual. There is an example VT Pro-e project for the C2N-DVP4DI on
page 49.
VT Pro-e Programming Notes for C2N-DVP4DI

•
Default transition effects will not occur if a value has been entered in analog
value, or if the sources are on-screen and are changing size and/or position.
•
The analog value transition overrides the default transition effect. You
must zero out (0) the analog value to allow the default transition to take
effect.
•
If you do a page flip or sub-page to another page that has the same sources,
and they are the same size and/or position, the C2N-DVP4DI will not
change or disturb that source even if you programmed a different transition
or duration on that page or sub-page. This is an important difference
between the C2N-DVP4DI and a TPS touchpanel.

If the page flip or sub-page has a new source, it transitions the new source
on but makes no change to the existing sources if they are to remain on
screen.
•
If only the size and/or position are changed on the video source window, the
C2N-DVP4DI will not perform the programmed default transition effect. It
will either perform the stretch effect or a fade off / fade on to the new size
and/or position, depending on the source. Refer to “RGB and Video
Options” in the C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide (Doc. 6112) for more
information.
•
The vertical frequency for RGB sources must be the same as the C2NDVP4DI output vertical frequency to perform the stretch effect. If the
vertical frequencies do not match, the C2N-DVP4DI defaults to the fade
down / fade up effect, overriding the SETUP | OPTION setting. Video
sources are scaled to the C2N-DVP4DI output resolution and frequency to
allow the stretch effect to work.
•
Changing an analog join transition or an analog join duration does not take
effect on the screen until a source change occurs. It does not drive the
current source to redraw with this new effect.
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A

•
There are four RGB, twelve composite video and four component video
sources available, but the C2N-DVP4DI only displays four sources at the
same time. If you have programmed four sources to display, and are
changing to just one source, a fifth source is required. (If you use the same
video more than once, it is still counted as a separate source.) The C2NDVP4DI will fade down one of the existing four sources, depending on the
source selected, and then transition the new source on, while removing the
existing sources.
•
The Video/RGB Windows on the C2N-DVP4DI are not unique. You can
use either the RGB or video object for RGB, S-video, component, and
composite.
•
The background graphic and color are always drawn first, followed by the
video object. Any other objects are placed on top. This includes the
backgrounds of sub-pages. The order of object placement is the same as in
VT Pro-e.
•
The project resolution must be the same as the output resolution of the
C2N-DVP4DI for video to function correctly. Example: 800 x 600 on both
the output of the C2N-DVP4DI and the VT Pro-e Project.
•
If you change the output resolution of the C2N-DVP4DI, then you must
recalibrate the touch input.
Configuring Video Windows
Video windows created on a page can be configured using the Video Properties
option. Once a video window is created using the Draw | RGB window
or
Draw | Video window
options, double-click the video window to open “RGB
Video Properties” or “Video Properties” so you can configure the window.
Joins – are analog values that allow the user to select different video sources,
transition durations, and transition effects and directions, using analog joins to
be displayed on one video window (overrides the set defaults in VT Pro-e). You
may also use joins to change source, transition and duration. The primary
advantage of using joins in this manner comes from the fact that the C2NDVP4DI does not have to load a background page first as in a page flip or a sub
page. The source change occurs rapidly after the digital press.
NOTE: Overriding analog join numbers can result in two pages with the same join
number. In this case, page flips between them will not function.
Changing Size and Position of Video and/or RGB Sources
using Analog Joins
The C2N-DVP4DI has the ability to change the size and position of any video/RGB
window on command. Use VT Pro-e to change the window size and position on-thefly by programming analog join numbers for height, width, left, and top. These
selections are under the Select Property to Modify located in the lower left corner of
the Source tab in of the RGB Video Properties window. This property affects RGB,
DVI, composite, S-video and component video.
Procedure
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
1.
Draw a video or an RGB window.
2.
Select the properties for that object.
Digital Video Processor: C2N- DVP4DI • 37
Digital Video Processor
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
3.
In the lower left hand corner of the window use the pull-down menu under
Select Property to Modify and assign an analog value for height, left, top
and width.
“RGB Video Properties” Window
Analog Touch Join - Height adjusts the vertical size of the video/RGB image. Place
an analog join number in the box.
NOTE: The maximum analog height value that can be assigned in the SIMPL
Windows program is the vertical resolution of the C2N-DVP4DI output in pixels, not
the input resolution of the source. If an analog value of zero is sent to this analog
join number, the C2N-DVP4DI will not display the video; it is too small to see. You
cannot have a value less than zero.
Analog Touch Join - Left adjusts the horizontal position of the video.
The minimum analog left value that can be assigned in the SIMPL Windows
program is zero. This positions the video image on the left edge of the display. The
maximum analog value is the horizontal resolution minus the horizontal size of the
image displayed. As you move the image to the right edge of the display, the C2NDVP4DI rescales the image to fit the new size. The C2N-DVP4DI will not allow the
image to be off screen.
Analog Touch Join - Top adjusts the vertical position of the video. The minimum
analog Top value assigned in the SIMPL Windows program is zero. An analog
value of zero places the video image on the top edge of the display. The maximum
analog value is the vertical resolution minus the vertical size of the image displayed.
As you move the image past the bottom edge of the display, the C2N-DVP4DI
rescales the image to fit the new size and does not allow the image should be off the
screen. You cannot have a value less than zero.
NOTE: The video size must fit within the horizontal and vertical position. If, for
example, you set the video image value to full screen, but set a horizontal and
vertical offset value of ten, the video image on the screen will not be full screen.
38 • Contents
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
Digital Video Processor
The C2N-DVP4DI moves the image ten pixels down and ten pixels to the right.
Then the C2N-DVP4DI scales the image to fit on the reminder of the screen. In this
case, set the horizontal and vertical offset to zero.
Analog Touch Join - Width adjusts the horizontal size of the video. The C2NDVP4DI will not display the video if you enter an analog value of zero. The
maximum value assigned to Width is the horizontal resolution of the C2N-DVP4DI
output, not the input resolution.
Analog Initialize Value
When you assign an analog value to height and width, you must also assign an
analog initialize value to that analog join number in SIMPL Windows. Without an
analog initialize value, video will not be present when you do a page flip or sub
page.
An analog value of zero has an image size of zero pixels for height and width.
If you also want the video to appear in a particular position on the screen, you must
set the top and left position values in an analog initialize. If no analog value is
assigned, the C2N-DVP4DI defaults to the upper left corner of the screen, regardless
of where you have drawn the window location in VT Pro-e.
NOTE: When drawing a two-dimensional slider to control the size and position of
the video, the first analog number is for the horizontal axis and the second number is
for the vertical axis.
Aspect Ratios
Maintain the proper aspect ratio when setting the initialize values. Refer to page 97
for additional information on aspect ratios.
•
To maintain a 4 X 3 aspect ratio, multiply the height by 1.33.
•
To maintain a 16 X 9 aspect ratio, multiply the height by 1.78
Example: Assuming the height is 100:
Aspect Ratio

Assigning a Source, Transition and Duration
There are two ways to assign a source, transition and duration (timing) default
analog value:
•
Defaults – allows the user to assign the video source, transition or timing to
be used when a page flip, digital logic join or sub page is activated. The
selection can be overwritten with analog joins (refer to “Changing Size and
Position using Analog Joins” on page 37).
•
Select Properties – allows the user to select the size and position of a video
window, digital feedback joins (used for diagnostics), and allows the user to
enter a project description in the Description field.
For additional software information, consult the VT Pro-e help file.

The Transition Effect list gives options for the appearance of the video window on
the screen. Depending on the chosen effect, you will have additional options for
specifying duration and direction. For example, if you select Pan as the transition
effect, then you must select a duration and a direction for the panning. This causes
the video window to pan across the screen at the specified speed and direction when
the video window is drawn.
The default values are overridden by using the Analog Join area to set analog join
numbers for Input Selection, Transition Duration and Transition Effect and
Direction.
First select the join type from the Type list, i.e., Input Selection. Then assign its
analog join number from the Analog Join field. This analog join will appear as an
analog feedback signal in the touchpanel definition. The value of the signal
determines the video source or transition effect. For example, to select S-Video
Input 1 as the video source, the analog join for Input Selection is set to a value of 5d
(‘5’ represents the analog value for S-Video Input 1 and ‘d’ represents the decimal
value). To cause the video window to pan from right to left (east to west), the analog
join for Transition Effect and Duration is set to a value of 1336d.
Video Source Effect/Direction and Duration Join Values
The primary advantage to using analog value source switching is a much faster
switch time compared to loading backgrounds.
Each video effect requires three different analog join numbers:
•
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
An analog join number to specify the effect (cut, zoom, pan, dissolve,
reveal)
Digital Video Processor: C2N- DVP4DI • 41
Digital Video Processor
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
•
An analog join number to specify the direction of the effect (compass
direction)
•
An analog join number to specify the duration of the effect (seconds)
These unique numbers are assigned in the “Video Properties” window and on the
corresponding touchpanel joins for each video effect, each direction, and each
duration time.
The following describes each C2N-DVP4DI video effect. Window movement is
selectable for the Pan and Reveal effects only.
NOTE: A selected direction indicates that the movement or exposing of a window
is toward the selected direction. For example, for the Pan effect, selecting N (north)
moves the window on screen from south toward the north.
NOTE: Video sources go on and off using the same effect.
Pan
Moves a video window from off to on screen. The direction of movement is
selectable (W, N, or NW). When another page is selected, the movement of the
window from on to off screen is in the opposite direction.
W – window moves on screen in an east to west direction
N – window moves on screen in a south to north direction
NW – window moves on screen in a southeast to northwest direction

project using analog initializers to change the transitions and/or durations. An analog
transition or duration does not take effect until a new source is selected or a new
page is drawn.
Translucent Objects
The quality of translucency allows any object in your project to be seen through to
the video source below. This object quality is selected in VT Pro-e. The amount
(percentage) of see-through is set in this menu.
To program for translucency in VT Pro-e, double click on the object for which you
require translucency. The properties window for the object appears. Select the Effect
Tab and enable Translucent. Save and compile the project and download to the C2NDVP4DI.

Rules for Backgrounds, Video Windows, Objects
and Subpages
The following are the rules for layering backgrounds, video windows and objects in
a C2N-DVP4DI VT Pro-e project.
Backgrounds – A background on a page is always the back layer. It cannot be
moved in front of video windows or objects.
Video Windows – Video windows are always on top of backgrounds. They cannot
be moved in front of objects.
Objects (buttons, etc.) – Objects are always on top of video windows and
backgrounds. They cannot be moved behind video windows and backgrounds.
Subpages – A subpage background is always in the back layer. It does not move in
front of the video window on the main page, but is in front of the main page’s
background when it appears. Objects are always on top. The subpages are displayed
in the order in which the digital feedback occurs. This permits you to place any
subpage on top of any other subpage.
NOTE: If the C2N-DVP4DI is a slave and power is lost for some reason, when you
return to the page, the order of the subpages will be lowest join number to highest
join number (the highest join number on top). The subpage order does not follow the
order in VT Pro-e.
Example VT Pro-e Project
The following procedure is designed to demonstrate C2N-DVP4DI video effect
capabilities. Once the compiled program is loaded in the C2N-DVP4DI, the main
video screen opens with a pan effect; the subsequent screen contains four video
windows, each window displaying a different effect. For effect descriptions, refer to
“Selecting a Video Source Effect and Duration” on page 40.
Prerequisites
For this example, we explicitly need video sources 1A and 2A. We also need RGB
sources on DVI/RGB1 and DVI/RGB3.
•

Uploading VT Pro-e Projects to the C2N-DVP4DI
Since the C2N-DVP4DI can operate as a touchpanel interface, you can upload VT
Pro-e projects directly to it. Projects are loaded in the compact flash memory.
Compiled projects are contained in VTZ files. You must be connected to another
control system to upload projects when in the slave mode. Use the following
instructions to upload a project:
1.
on the toolbar, (or
Open VT Pro-e and click the Upload Project icon
click File | Upload Project), or Open Viewport, establish communication
with the C2N-DVP4DI (refer to “Establishing Communications” in the
latest version of the C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide, Doc. 6112) and click
File Transfer | Send Touchpanel or press Alt+T.
2.
Select the network ID of the C2N-DVP4DI, as set in SIMPL Windows,
from the drop-down list.
3.
Browse to VTZ file to be uploaded and choose the pages to send to the
C2N-DVP4DI. The choices are as follows:
-
All Files in Project: sends the entire project.
-
Only Changed Files: sends only those files in the project that have
changed. NOTE that if any pages in the panel are not present in the
project, those pages will be deleted from the panel.
-
Additional choices include Do not send graphic files and Do not send
sound files. These are often very large files that need not be reloaded
with every transfer.
Reserved Join Numbers
A reserved join number is a feature of the software that enables a designer to create a
button on a VT Pro-e page that either calls up the SYSTEM SETUP MENU, adjusts
standby timeout, etc. These numbers also allow the control system to trigger touchsensitive screen overlay functions (i.e., recall RGB preset when source changes). The

Advanced Features
One of the many exciting features of the C2N-DVP4DI is its ability to change a
video source on a selected page, instead of using page flips as described in the
previous projects. This is performed using analog joins. For example, you could add
buttons to the VT Pro-e project 1 ‘Logo’ page that corresponds with all video
sources. You then assign analog join numbers to a video page in project 2 (for
example, Page 3: ‘ST-Tune video 1B’) selecting Input Selection as the type of join
from the Source tab of the “Video Properties” window. The SIMPL Windows
project has a digital to analog symbol and support logic symbols added and
programmed, and additional programming is added to the TPS and Touchpanel
Interface symbols (digital and analog joins). Once the projects are compiled and
loaded in the C2N-DVP4DI, pressing a video button on the touchpanel changes the
displayed video source without the need of page flips.

Connecting a Pointing Device
NOTE: Most mice that have serial capability will work. A mouse should be serial
(9-pin D-sub) or PS2/serial (combo mouse) with PS2 connector and D-sub adaptor.
Ordinary PS2 mice will not work. Most serial mice are Microsoft compatible (use
TOUCH 1). Some mice are MouseSystems compatible (use TOUCH 9). Use TOUCH
10 for Logitech mice.
The C2N-DVP4DI is shipped with a Microsoft compatible 9-pin mouse.
After connecting a pointing device to the Touchscreen/Mouse port, you must use
Viewport to inform the C2N-DVP4DI the kind of device that has been installed.
Set the Crestron supplied serial mouse input parameters in Viewport using the
following instructions.
1.
To select the input mouse type using Viewport, type: Touch ? and press
Enter at the prompt for a list of input devices (refer to the following
graphic). Type: Touch 1 for a Microsoft mouse.
NOTE: Zero (0) disables all other inputs and only permits program control.
NOTE: If you are using a Smart Technologies pointing device (such as Smart
Sympodium, etc.) the serial cable (DB9) must have the Data Terminal Ready (DTR –
pin 6) and Data Set Ready (DSR – pin 4) connections removed. Use Crestron part
number CNSP-141. Refer to “Smart Sympodium” on page 81.
2.
From the Viewport, type Caltouch, and follow the instructions on the
output screen of the C2N-DVP4DI (This command is not required if using a
mouse).
NOTE: Take note of the output resolution of the C2N-DVP4DI. You will need this
when performing a calibration if the pointing device is not a mouse.

Touch Input Control
In SIMPL Windows Program View, right click on slot 1 of the C2N-DVP4DI and
choose Insert Device Extender. Choose C2N-DVP4DI Touch In Format for
inputs and open the symbol in Detail View.
C2N-DVP4DI Touch In Format Symbol
The C2N-DVP4DI Touch In Format device extender symbol is provided for input
programming for the C2N-DVP4DI. This prepares the C2N-DVP4DI for the proper
input string based on the type of pointing device. The two inputs accept touch data in
two different formats: Crestron Mouse Driver and Microsoft Serial Mouse Driver.
All of the inputs are serial.
A string of the given format issued to the C2N-DVP4DI on this symbol controls the
mouse cursor on the C2N-DVP4DI. For example, if you want to control the C2NDVP4DI mouse cursor using a CNWM (wireless mouse), you would drop the
CNWM onto a CNRFGWA definition. The data signal of the mouse is then
connected to the <MS_Mouse> input of this device extender.
The <CrestronMouseDriver> input is used if using the Crestron custom serial
mouse driver to control the C2N-DVP4DI. If both the Crestron and Microsoft mice
are connected, and the data comes through simultaneously, they both control the
motion of the cursor.
Currently only the first two inputs of this symbol are active, a serial string connected
to other (undefined) inputs can be safely ignored.
Touch Output Control
In SIMPL Windows, right click on slot 1 of the C2N-DVP4DI and select Insert
Device Extender. Select C2N-DVP4DI Touch Out Format and open the symbol in

C2N-DVP4DI Touch Out Format Configuration Symbol
This symbol determines the pointing device output and enables the proper formatting
of the output string. Output can be via RS-232, Cresnet or Ethernet.
All of the Touch Out Format inputs are analog.
Setting a value for one of these joins tells the C2N-DVP4DI to output the control
strings in a particular format. The strings are issued on the Slot 1 Serial List on the
C2N-DVP4DI definition, on the first 16 outputs, starting at join #1.
The legal decimal values using the analog Init Symbol:
0 = Crestron Mouse Driver (this is the default and for “Touch the PC”)
1 = ELO Driver (for Boekler Telestrator applications)
2 = SMART Matisse (older SMART format)
3 = SMART Board (newer SMART format)
4 = C2N-DVP4DI built-in telestrator
Each analog input corresponds to a video source and is linked to a serial output on
the C2I-TPS touchpanel interface, beginning with <text-o1>. As shown in the
following table, <DVI/RGB1> corresponds to <text-o1>, <DVI/RGB2>
corresponds to <text-o2>, <YC3> to <text-o7> and so forth.

For example, if <YC1> (S-video input 1) is set to 0, then when the pad area
associated with YC1 is touched, serial string 5 outputs a serial string in the Crestron
Mouse Driver format. This serial string is generally routed to one of the C2NDVP4DI built-in COM ports for control over a PC or telestrator.
Mouse Awareness (“Touch the PC”)
A mouse or a touchpanel connected to a C2N-DVP4DI can also be used to control
the mouse functions of a PC. The “Touch the PC” feature allows a user to remotely
control a number of other PC’s cursors and mouse buttons.
Any window on the C2N-DVP4DI may be made "mouse-aware" by assigning the
pad area, just as we already do on existing TPS panels, and enabling the Touch/Pad
Area check box in Video Properties | Design of VT Pro-e. In SIMPL Windows, a
serial signal must be assigned to the C2I-TPS Touchpanel Interface symbol (slot 1 of
the C2N-DVP4DI SIMPL Windows symbol) for each PC, and the same signal needs
to be assigned to a serial driver symbol for each PC. For more information, refer to
the latest revision of the Serial Mouse Control Driver Software Programmer’s Guide,
Doc. 5916 in the Downloads | Product Manuals section of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com).
Defining the mouse parameters on the C2N-DVP4DI is different because you use
more than one window, and the mouse packets are sent to a PC (or any device with a
video or RGB output and a touch/mouse input) that is associated with the source
shown in the window. You cannot define the mouse on a single window as on the
TPS touchpanels.
When the window is touched, the mouse command packets generated by the C2NDVP4DI are sent out of one of the first 24 serial join outputs of the C2N-DVP4DI
embedded TPS symbol, depending on which of the 24 sources is currently shown in
the window (there is already a reserved join number for the window, to tell which
source to route there). There are up to 24 possible RGB/video sources on the C2NDVP4DI, although they are not all available at the same time. The sources are as
follows:

The first 24 serial outputs of the TPS symbol (into the program) are used for the 24
mouse/telestrator strings, corresponding to the 24 sources, respectively. (i.e., Any
window that is showing Source 1 through 24, when touched, generates a mouse or
telestrator packet that is sent out of the respective serial join). By default, the packets
are mouse-type packets. If one or more must be telestrator-type packets, there is a
Device Extender type symbol called "Touch Output Control" that can be added to the
embedded TPS symbol in the C2N-DVP4DI.

Assigning Mouse Packets to Serial Ports in SIMPL Windows
NOTE: The "To_Anywhere" in the example can be to a serial port on the PRO2 or
C2N-DVP4DI, a Cresnet device, an Ethernet device, etc.
Advanced users should also note that routing a signal from the Slot 1 TPS serial joins
to the COM ports on the C2N-DVP4DI appears to ensure that the signal stays
internal to the C2N-DVP4DI, but it does not. Because there is no program in the
C2N-DVP4DI when it is a slave, the signal must be sent to the PRO2 for
interpretation and then re-routed back out to the C2N-DVP4DI. If this kind of traffic
is not desirable, then the PRO2 should contain a program and the C2N-DVP4DI
should be used as a master (standalone control system) with its own program, and the
programs should send any shared data via Ethernet ISC or XSIG. Then the signal
stays within the C2N-DVP4DI. The "To_Anywhere" has to go through an XSIG, if it
leaves the C2N-DVP4DI.
The advantages of this approach include simplicity, containment of all data within
the program and VT Pro-e project, very limited development time, and flexibility.

C2N-DVP4DI Video and Computer Annotation
(Built-in Telestrator)
The C2N-DVP4DI has Video and Computer Annotation (built-in telestrator),
eliminating the purchase of addition equipment. This feature enables the user to
draw or write over a variety of video and computer images by touching and dragging
a finger over the touchpanel.
The freeze/unfreeze function can freeze the video image to allow annotation on a still
picture. Freeze works on both CNX-DVP4 and C2N-DVP4DI, but the image appears
better on the C2N-DVP4DI because of the de-interlacing feature.
The C2N-DVP4DI telestrator has eight colors and three brush types:
•
The colors are: red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta, white, and black.
•
The brushes are: thin brush 2 pixels wide, the medium brush 4 pixels wide,
and wide brush 8 pixels wide.
Setting up the C2N-DVP4DI for built-in telestrator with serial mouse:

Smart Sympodium
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI and Smart Technologies Sympodium combine to form a
unique presentation solution.
The combination of the Crestron C2N-DVP4DI Digital Video Processor and the
Smart Technologies Sympodium answers the call for increased functionality in less
space, and does it at a reduced cost.
The Sympodium from Smart Technologies provides a 15" color touchscreen surface
that allows presenters to annotate over any computer-generated graphics image. By
incorporating a Crestron C2N-DVP4DI or TPS-TPI with the Sympodium, the user
has the benefit of complete A/V control and graphics onscreen as well as annotation
without the need of a separate touchpanel. This is especially advantageous where
counter space may be limited, or where a single user interface is desired.
The Crestron C2N-DVP4DI interfaces directly to the Sympodium providing a
control system processor and touchscreen interface in one. Using the C2N-DVP4DI,
the GUI displayed on the Sympodium looks just like a Crestron Isys™ touchpanel
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
Digital Video Processor: C2N- DVP4DI • 81
Digital Video Processor
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
with all of the additional benefits of the C2N-DVP4DI like transition and
translucence effects. Full operation of the Sympodium is conducted using a stylus.
Best of all, in addition to its astounding graphics, the C2N-DVP4DI also provides for
display of up to four high-performance, fully scalable video and computer windows
within the control GUI. And with four onboard COM ports, the C2N-DVP4DI can
add dramatic expansion capability to the Sympodium by enabling both Smart
annotation and Crestron "Touch-The-PC" mouse driver capability for four separate
computer sources at a time!

There are several ways the Smart Sympodium can be integrated with the Crestron
C2N-DVP4DI Video/Graphics Processor:
•
Option 1: The Sympodium can be used as the touch input for the C2NDVP4DI. This allows the Sympodium to function as a Crestron touchpanel.
The C2N-DVP4DI will generate the VGA display, which will be shown on
the Sympodium. This display can consist of multiple video and VGA
windows, and the standard Crestron control buttons and graphics. The
Sympodium can activate buttons as if it were a standard Crestron
touchpanel.

SIMPL Windows Sympodium Programming Considerations
The firmware of the C2N-DVP4DI handles most of the interactions required to
operate with the Sympodium. However, in some configurations, a small amount of
SIMPL Windows programming is necessary.
Option 1: If you are just using the Sympodium as the touch input device for the
C2N-DVP4DI, and no computer is used for telestration or control, no special SIMPL
Windows programming is needed.
Option 2: If you are using the Sympodium as the touch input device, and you are
using a computer for telestration and control, the following SIMPL Windows
programming is required:
86 • Contents
1.
The pad area information (the coordinates corresponding to where you
touch) will be sent into the SIMPL Windows program on the C2I-TPS
Touchpanel Interface definition in the SIMPL Windows program. The
information is a serial (text) input, corresponding to which VGA/video
signal is displayed in the pad area touched. DVI/VGA input 1 pad
information is sent on Serial join #1. DVI/VGA input 2 is on serial join 2,
and so on. This allows the SIMPL Windows program to always know which
display signal is being touched.
2.
There is also a heartbeat sent from the Sympodium to the PC. This is sent
independent of the VGA window that is currently displayed. This
information is received into the SIMPL Windows program on port E of the
C2I-COM5 card. This port corresponds to the Touchscreen/Mouse port.
3.
You must take the pad area information received on the C2I-TPS definition,
and the heartbeat received on port E of the C2I-COM5 card, and route them
to the COM port (1-4) connected to the computer.
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
Digital Video Processor
NOTE: You could have up to four separate pad areas, corresponding to four
separate DVI/VGA inputs, controlling four separate computers.
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
4.
In addition, you will need a module (Smart Sympodium PC – C2NDVP4DI Interface v2.umc) connected to each COM port connected to a
computer. This module interacts with the computer, and causes it to believe
that it is connected directly to a Sympodium.
5.
You will also need to add a device extender to the C2I-TPS Touchpanel
Interface definition. Right-click on the C2I-TPS definition in Program
View, and select Insert Device Extender from the drop-down menu (refer
to page 61). Select C2N-DVP4DI Touch Out Format. This allows you to
specify what types of commands are sent for each VGA window. A value of
3d corresponds to “Smart” mode. (1d = Crestron Mouse mode, 2d =
Boeckeler telestrator mode). You can use an Analog Initialize symbol to
specify the value.

NOTE: When you set up the COM port to communicate with the computer, the
proper settings are 9600 baud, no parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no handshaking.
Option 3: If you are using a touchpanel as a touch input device, as well as the
Sympodium, you must perform the programming described for option 2, and the
following additions:

Digital Video Processor
Video Definitions
The following definitions may be helpful when setting up the C2N-DVP4DI.
RGB
The eye is capable of seeing only three colors, red (R), green (G), and blue (B). The
brain extracts full spectrum information from varying intensities and combinations of
these three colors. For example, when you see red and blue together, the brain
interprets a third color. The proportion of red to blue determines if this color is
shifted towards the red (violet) or the blue (purple).
Because of this physiological limit of vision, a video system need only reproduce
red, green, and blue information.
Input synchronization for the C2N-DVP4DI can be horizontal and vertical (H&V),
composite sync, or sync on G. Output sync of the C2N-DVP4DI is always H&V.
Composite (480i) and S-Video
Compression of all the video information (luminance and chrominance) into one
signal was devised in the early days of color television to permit transmission over
the airwaves. This standard was defined by the National Television Standards
Committee (NTSC) and is known as composite video. However, these compressed
composite signals, which require RGB separation to drive a video display, cannot be
fully restored to their original quality.
An S-video cable carries two separate signals, one for luminance (Y) and one for
chrominance or color (C). The Y signal is the same as in the native component video
format. And the C is simply a combination of the B-Y and R-Y color difference
signals. (S-video is also referred to as Y/C.) By keeping luminance and chrominance
information separate, most of the signal loss inherent in the conversion of composite
to RGB video is avoided.
Y, PB, PR Component Video
The original RGB signal is divided into three component parts:
•
The luminance signal contains the black & white (brightness) information
in the original RGB signal. It is referred to as the "Y" component.
•
The color difference signal B-Y contains the blue information, minus the
luminance information. This signal is also called Cb (the digital color space
signal designation), and Pb (the analog color space designation in
component video).
•
The color difference signal R-Y contains the red information minus the
luminance information. This signal is also called Cr (the digital color space
signal designation), and Pr (the analog color space designation in
component video).
The color difference channels (B-Y and R-Y) are algebraically recombined with the
luminance channel to produce a full color picture, recreating the green information
through this mathematical process. The original green data can consume more than
half the bandwidth of a video signal.
NOTE: Color space is a method used to specify, create and visualize color. Color is
defined by three attributes: brightness, hue and intensity. These three dimensions of
Reference Guide – DOC. 6177A
Digital Video Processor: C2N- DVP4DI • 93
Digital Video Processor
Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
color exist in a mathematical three-dimensional space, making it possible to specify
precise colors.
NOTE: The C2N-DVP4DI can accept Y, Pb, Pr directly for 480i and PAL only.
480p, 720p and 1080i require conversion to RGB. Crestron recommends a converter
made by Key Digital Systems, model number KD-CTCAL (www.keydigital.com)
for this application. Refer to page 96 for additional information about HDTV.
Progressive and Interlaced Video
Interlaced scanning is the standard for analog televisions. An interlaced scan draws
the lines of each picture frame in two separate passes. Half of the 525 scan lines are
drawn in the first pass (the even lines), and the other half (the odd lines) are drawn in
the second pass. A complete picture of odd and even fields is painted on the screen
30 times a second.
This technique was developed to compensate for the limited transmission
technologies available when television was new, and was satisfactory in its day.
However, improvements in display technology revealed some serious shortcomings
of interlaced signals. Image flicker is more noticeable on larger screens, and on the
edges of sharp objects. Vertically adjacent horizontal lines are not from the same
field (a 60th of a second apart) so motion displacement becomes noticeable,
especially on high-resolution displays.
Progressive scanning draws all 525 lines of a picture frame in a single top to bottom
scan in 1/60th of a second.

The DI in C2N-DVP4DI stands for de-interlacing. De-interlacing is the process by
which interlaced video is converted to progressively scanned video.

in Interlaced Scan
Motion
Progressive Scan
Some de-interlacers simply rearrange fields by creating an even-line output frame
and an odd-line output frame every 60th of a second. Any motion occurring in the
time between the odd and even fields results in undesirable motion artifacts.
In another de-interlacer scheme, each of the odd and even fields is scaled up to the
entire frame size. The de-interlacer interpolates between the existing lines, reducing
motion artifacts but significantly reducing vertical resolution.
Motion adaptive de-interlacing applies an algorithm that compares subsequent
frames, reducing the vertical resolution of only the portion of the image that has
moved.
Line doublers are designed to take advantage of the 3:2 pulldown technique used to
transfer film to video. Film is recorded at 24 frames per second. To match speeds
with video scanning (60 frames per second), the first film frame is captured onto
three video fields (even, odd, and even) then the second film frame is captured onto
two video fields (odd and even). This creates ten interlaced video fields for every
four film frames.
An advanced line doubler de-interlacer (as in the C2N-DVP4DI) examines a series
of frames, detects the sequence and determines the pre-video film source. It then

reassembles the original progressive frames from the partial interlaced frames
without resolution loss and motion artifacts.
HDTV (High Definition Television)
High-definition television is a high-resolution digital television broadcast and
playback system composed of roughly a million or more pixels (picture elements),
16:9 aspect-ratio screens, and AC3 (Dolby Digital six-channel digital audio
standard). A subset of digital television, HDTV formats include 1080i and 720p
resolution.
1080i - A designated format of high-definition television in the Advanced Television
Systems Committee Digital TV standard, with 1,080 vertical pixels by 1,920
horizontal pixels. The i stands for interlaced, painting odd-numbered scan lines in
succession, then going back and filling in the remaining even-numbered lines. A
complete picture is created 30 times per second. 1080i is a high-resolution digital
television broadcast and playback system composed of roughly a million or more
pixels (picture elements), 16:9 aspect-ratio screens, and AC3 (the Dolby Digital sixchannel digital audio standard). The signal is supplied in Component format; Y
(luminance) and separate chrominance signals Pb, and Pr. To use a 1080i resolution
with the CNX-DVP4 or the C2N-DVP4DI it must be first converted to RGB.
Crestron recommends a converter made by Key Digital Systems, model number KDCTCAL (www.keydigital.com) for this application.
1080i is designated by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers
(SMPTE) as 274m, 59.94 Hz (60 Hz) vertical and 33.716 kHz horizontal (33.75
kHz), 0.600 volts peak-to-peak.
720p – A format designated as high-definition television in the Advanced Television
Systems Committee Digital TV standard. This technology comprises 720 vertical
pixels and 1,280 horizontal pixels. The p stands for progressive, also called
sequential scanning, by which all odd and even scanning lines are "painted" by an
electron beam every 1/60 of a second. ). To use a 720p resolution with the CNXDVP4 or the C2N-DVP4DI it must be first converted to RGB. Crestron recommends
a converter made by Key Digital Systems, model number KD-CTCAL
(www.keydigital.com) for this application.
720p is designated by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers
(SMPTE) as 296m, 59.94 Hz (60 Hz) vertical and 33.716 kHz horizontal (33.75
kHz), 0.600 volts peak-to-peak.
SDTV (Standard Definition Television)
Digital television format that includes 480-line resolution in both interlaced (480i)
and progressively scanned (480p) formats, and offers discernible improvement over
conventional analog NTSC picture resolution, with less noise. SDTV is similar to
DVD or satellite TV quality but not considered high-definition television (HDTV).
SDTV can provide both widescreen (16:9) and traditional (4:3) aspect ratio formats.
Most devices only output 4:3 and support the other aspect ration in a letterbox
format. See the section on Aspect ratio (next page) for more information.
480p - A form of standard-definition digital television comparable to VGA computer
displays but not considered high-definition television (HDTV), though 480p is
discernibly cleaner and slightly sharper than analog television. 480p has a resolution
of 720 x 480 and is a 4:3 aspect ratio. The signal is supplied in Component format; Y
(luminance) and separate chrominance signals Pb, and Pr. To use a 480p resolution
with the CNX-DVP4 or the C2N-DVP4DI it must be first converted to RGB.
Crestron recommends a converter made by Key Digital Systems, model number KDCTCAL (www.keydigital.com) for this application. The native resolution of DVD is
480i, but that resolution can be seen only if a DVD player outputs a progressive scan

Crestron C2N-DVP4DI
Digital Video Processor
signal that is converted by an internal line-doubler and the DTV has progressive-scan
or component-video outputs; it is also known as EDTV (Enhanced Definition
Television). It is recommend that you use the 480i signal from the DVD (or other
device) that has 480p and allow the C2N-DVP4DI to line-double the signal. The
C2N-DVP4DI has a better line-doubler than most others.
480i - (Composite Video) A form of standard-definition digital television (444:3
aspect ratio, 720 x 480 resolution) that approximates the quality of analog television
but is not considered high-definition television (HDTV). The i stands for interlaced
scanning. Even though the native resolution of DVDs is 480p, they are viewed at
480i on an NTSC or PAL analog television.
Aspect Ratios
Aspect ratio is a number that expresses the proportion of width to height. For
example, a movie screen has an aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Converting the height and
width dimensions to a fraction, and then reducing the fraction to a decimal,
determines the aspect ratio number.
Width divided by height: 20/10.8 = 1.85/1.
Knowing the image height and the aspect ratio, you can calculate the image width.
Figure 1. 4:3 Aspect Ratio
Some other common aspect ratios include 1.33:1 and 1.78:1. These are sometimes
referred to in whole number ratios as 4:3 and 16:9 respectively. The term 4:3 means
that the display is 4 units wide for every 3 units high (or 1.33 units wide for every
one unit high). 4:3 is the aspect ratio of standard television (NTSC); 16:9 is the
aspect ratio of HDTV.

the custom output setting. Refer to “Output Resolution Selection” on page 19 and the
C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide (Doc. 6112) for information about custom aspect
ratios.
The C2N-DVP4DI can allow the simultaneous display of multiple formats. For
example, displaying a 4x3 image on a 16:9 plasma screen appears without image
distortion. It appears with black on the sides of the image, rather than top and
bottom as in letterbox display.

a 16:9 Display
The C2N-DVP4DI displays a true 16:9 aspect ratio. The 16:9 aspect ratio is full
screen; the image fills the screen from edge to edge.
Letterbox Display
A letterbox image is scaled to fit within another aspect ratio, usually the standard
television format of 4:3, and has reduced vertical resolution.
NOTE: Letterbox (a 1.85 aspect ratio designed to fit within a 4x3 frame) and HDTV
16x9 (1.78) are not the same.

When letterbox images are setup for a 4:3 aspect ratio screen, the black at the top and
bottom of the image are the result of the difference between the original aspect ratio
of the movie (1.85:1) and the 4:3 (1.33:1) aspect ratio of the display.
Multiple Sources
In the following example, a proportionally enlarged 4:3 image is placed to the left of
a 16:9 display, and allows the placement of three additional 4:3 sources to the right.

HDTV uses a 16:9 aspect ratio, but HDTV also requires that the signal is 1080i, or
720p. The C2N-DVP4DI accepts1080i but it must be in an RGB format, not
component format (Y, Pb, Pr). The C2N-DVP4DI has two standard RGBHV outputs
for 16:9: 1280 x 720p and 1365 x 768.
DVD Disks
Most available DVD disks are not formatted in a 16x9 aspect ratio. They are
generally 1.85 or 2.35. When viewed on a 16x9 display, they appear in a letterbox
format (although the black area is slightly smaller than the 4x3 letterbox).
To display a full screen image, the DVD disk must be formatted as HDTV (16x9
aspect ratio).

16x9 video, displays video source 2A. The video in this window must be
16x9 to display properly, if not, the 4x3 video will appear distorted.
Figure 6, 16x9 Grid Displayed on a 16x9 Display Device
2. Set the C2N-DVP4DI output for 16x9, either 720p or 1365. Refer to the
Setup Mode instructions in the C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide (Doc.
6112).
NOTE: Setting the C2N-DVP4DI aspect ratio to 1280x1024 is actually for a 4x3
aspect ratio. This setting will not display 16x9 properly.
3.
Use the 16x9 grid supplied above and set the projector (using its own
internal menus/remote) to 16x9 mode (wide or wide-screen mode). From
the setup menu (output) in the C2N-DVP4DI, follow the instructions for
video output setup in the C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide (Doc. 6112) to
display the grid and get proper sizing edge-to-edge.
NOTE: All the output adjustments are to be done on the display device (projector,
plasma, etc.).
NOTE: Some projectors are only capable of displaying a 16x9 aspect ratio with a
particular input resolution (for example, 720p), and do not display 16x9 with any
other resolution.
NOTE: If the projector only does 4x3, the C2N-DVP4DI 16x9 output cannot make
the projector do 16x9. It will only be displayed as 4x3.

Setup of the C2N-DVP4DI Input
After setting up the C2N-DVP4DI with the display device, and the 16x9 grid
displays as in figure 6, you can now proceed with the calibration of the C2NDVP4DI inputs.
1.
If your computer input is to be 16x9 RGB/video, load the PowerPoint 16x9
grid into your computer (from the examples file on the Crestron FTP site)
and enter show mode in PowerPoint.
2.
From the setup menu of the C2N-DVP4DI, select the desired input source
that has the 16x9 PowerPoint (even if the source is 4x3).
3. Size and scale the display by following the directions for the RGB Video
Input adjustment in the C2N-DVP4DI Operations Guide (Doc. 6112) for
edge-to-edge adjustment.
NOTE: If the display device is set to 16x9, and the C2N-DVP4DI output is set to
16x9, then a 4x3 computer source should display the 16x9 grid correctly.
4.
102 • Contents
To see the 4x3 computer source correctly displayed, exit the C2N-DVP4DI
setup menu, return to the VT Pro-e project. If using RGB, page flip to the
4x3 RGB source. Do not use the grid; use your usual 4x3 program source
that is on that computer. The image should display correctly as a 4x3 aspect
ratio on a 16x9 display, as in figure 3. Repeat this process for 4x3 video
sources.
