Unit Installation
Installing the UltraVista Plus is a straight forward procedure. First:
Make sure that the power supply for the DVI source is disconnected
Connect a DVI cable from the DVI source to the DVI-D input
connector on the rear panel of the UltraVista Plus
Connect four displays to the DVI-I input connectors on the rear panel
Connect the 5VDC power adapter to the UltraVista Plus power input
jack and switch on the power.
Last, power up the DVI source
The Power LED on the front panel will illuminate to indicate that power has
successfully been applied to the unit.
The UltraVista Plus has an internal processor that will continuously monitor
the DVI input signal, and the input LED will illuminate when a valid and
stable input is detected.
If the Input LED is not illuminated, the UltraVista Plus cannot detect a valid
DVI input source.
During operation, the UltraVista Plus is able to adjust its internal operation to
maintain the programmed output proportions even when the input resolution
changes.
Configuration
The UltraVista Plus stores a number of parameters to configure its
operation. This allows it to operate stand alone in a very flexible manner.
The configurations affect the input and output display modes as well as the
required partitioning of the input image between monitors.
The UltraVista Plus default configuration is:
Input EDID Preferred Mode:
1920 x 1080 x 60Hz (SMPTE timings)
Output monitor mode:
Use Monitor Preferred Mode Default :
1920 x 1080 x 60Hz (SMPTE)
Cropping Mode:
2x2 equal split (960x540) No Rotation
These default settings can be changed using the provided UltraVista Plus
control application. This is executed from a computer connected to the USB
port on the UltraVista Plus. The application can be run on any Windows®
platform. (See the Control Application section for additional information)

UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual
Configuring DVI Input resolution
Because the timings and resolution of the DVI input are set by the DVI
source machine, the UltraVista Plus can only configure this indirectly by
presenting a programmable “Preferred Mode” as part of its EDID (Extended
Display Identification Data).
Most graphics cards and HDMI appliances automatically select the
“Preferred Mode” resolution and timings presented by the UltraVista Plus
EDID, but they may need to be forced to re-detect if the EDID contents are
changed by the UltraVista Plus application. This would typically be via a hotplug event caused by disconnecting and reconnecting the DVI input cable.
The configuration application will allow read-back of the resolution that is
currently being detected, as well as the ability to read and write the internal
EDID rom.
Monitor Outputs
The UltraVista Plus can be configured to read the corresponding EDID of
each monitor that is connected and to drive out a signal that corresponds to
the resolution, timings and mode (RGB or DVI) of the Preferred Mode. This
is the factory default configuration.
Please note that when different monitors are attached to the four outputs,
each may advertise a different Preferred Mode, therefore each output will be
driven at a different mode.
Whenever the monitor EDID is used, the UltraVista Plus will calculate the
internal scale factors to ensure that the monitor (at whatever resolution it is
being driven) will still display the correct proportion of the input image.
If an EDID cannot be read (for example if the monitor cable does not
support the DDC signals required), there is a default mode that can be
programmed into the UltraVista Plus’s memory. This is factory configured to
1080p.
In some cases it may be that the user requires a very specific output timing
(for example when genlocking to the input) irrespective of the monitor
EDIDs. In this case the UltraVista Plus can be configured to always output
the mode that has been programmed as the default mode.
UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual

Selecting the Regions to Be Displayed
Each output of the UltraVista Plus can take its display data from any
arbitrary rectangular region of the captured input image. The factory default
for these cropping rectangles configures the four monitors to display a
quarter of the input as a 2x2 array, and these proportions are maintained
across different input resolutions.
For a 1080p input, this means that 960x540 pixels from the input image
would be up-scaled by a factor of 2 in each direction if the selected output
resolution was 1080p.
However if the input resolution were to change to 1600x1200, then for the
same output monitor the x4 would upscale from an 800x600 region and
would reprogram its scale factors to 2.4 horizontally and 1.8 vertically to
support the same 1080p monitor.
The cropping regions can be assigned arbitrarily and can overlap, the only
restriction being that the resulting scale factor must be greater than 1.0 (ie
1:1 or up-scaled) in either direction. As an example it is possible to use the
UltraVista Plus to output four identical copies of the input signal (providing
the resulting output timings remain within the capabilities of the single-link
DVI outputs).
The regions of the input image to be displayed on a given output monitor
can be programmed via USB by using the Datapath configuration
application.
In order to support portrait orientation of monitors, the source data can be
rotated by 90º, 180º or 270º as it is output to the monitor.

UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual
DVI-D Input section
The DVI-D Input group displays the current DVI mode that is being captured
(if any) and the preferred mode that has been programmed into the
UltraVista Plus’s EDID. Use the Modify button to update the EDID. The
small square to the left of the current input resolution indicates whether the
UltraVista Plus has genlocked to the input source.
Green – The outputs are genlocked to the input dot clock and vertical sync
Red – The outputs are not genlocked
To change the timings of the input EDID click on the Modify button. The
following dialog window will display. From this window you can modify the
input EDID preferred mode timing standard, the display mode, and detailed
timing.
UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual

The DVI-D Input dialog displays the resolution of the current mode for
reference and allows the timings of the EDID preferred mode to be edited.
The dialog supports standard timing formulae such as:
VESA CVT
CVT Reduced Blanking
SMPTE (for HD modes)
VESA GTF
Custom
Selecting Auto from the drop down list will typically default to the VESA CVT
algorithm. This best matches typical standard VESA output modes. The
CVT Reduced Blanking is recommended to minimize dot clocks and
maximize DVI cable lengths.
10
UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual
Selecting Custom allows the timing parameters to be edited. It should be
noted that you will need to select between definition of Pixel Clock or
Vertical Refresh since these are mutually excusive parameters.
Once edited, clicking OK writes the preferred mode into the EDID but may
not normally affect the input mode that is being captured. It may be
necessary to force the graphics device in the host machine to detect the
new modes, this can be done by selecting Detect on the Screen Resolutions
dialog box (Windows® 7) or by disconnecting the source from the x4 and
reconnecting.
All modifications to the input settings can be save as a .vqs file, removing
the requirement to input the same settings again. To save the settings select
the Save… command in the File menu. To open a saved .vqs file select the
Open… command.
Input Capture Regions
Each output of the x4 can select a different region of the input source image.
This dialog displays the settings of each region (region 1 corresponds to
output 1 etc). The numbers denote the top, left, width and height
coordinates of the region that is to be displayed. Note, these are described
in terms of the current active input resolution. If the input resolution
changes, the capture region coordinates scale to the new input resolution in
order to maintain the same proportions.
To modify any of these settings click on Modify to display the edit dialog.
UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual
11
Predifined Regions
For ease of use, there are preset buttons to select the two most popular
configurations: Quarter or Replicate.
Quarter
The first monitor displays the top left hand corner of the input image, the
second monitor the top right, the third the bottom left etc. This mode of
operation can be used to drive four monitors in a 2x2 arrangement from a
single high resolution input.
Replicate
Each output displays the entire input image. The output monitors can be
driven at the same resolution (with different timings if necessary) or a higher
resolution.
There are no restrictions (other than the resulting scale factor must be 1:1 or
upscale) in the region settings, so it is possible to have regions overlapping,
or to program in gaps etc. Additionally each region can have a transform
12
UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual
such as rotation or flipping applied to it (after cropping) in order to support
different output monitor orientations.
Please note that there may be instances where a setting stored in nonvolatile memory which was valid when it was stored (ie the scale factors
from input to output were 1:1 or greater) may subsequently require downscaling if the resolution of the input increases. In this case the firmware will
adjust the scaling factors to give a 1:1 crop of the input, centered on the
original region. In order to signal that at least one output is no longer exactly
honoring the programmed region setting, the front panel status light will not
be illuminated.
All modifications to the Region settings can be save as a .vqs file, removing
the requirement to input the same settings again. To save the settings select
the Save… command in the File menu. To open a saved .vqs file select the
Open… command.
Monitor Outputs
The Monitor Outputs group shows the actual resolution and refresh rate that
each of the four x4 outputs is currently providing. To see more information
such as whether this is an analog RGB or DVI mode, if it is the monitor
EDID preferred mode or a default mode programmed into the x4, along with
detailed timing information, click on the Modify button for the required
output.
The genlock status is indicated by the small colored squares:
Green
The outputs are genlocked to a common reference clock, and the Vsync of
the first monitor. If the Input genlock light is green (see above), then the
reference clock is taken from the input DVI source, and the system is fully
genlocked to this source. If the input genlock indicator is red, then the
outputs are genlocked together, but are not related to the input sync.
Red
The outputs are NOT genlocked
UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual
13
Individual monitor outputs can be configured by clicking on the
corresponding Modify button. This will bring up a timing dialog similar to that
of the input timings. This dialog is shown below.
14
UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual
The source of mode selection controls whether the x4 output should take its
timing values and resolution from the preferred mode of the monitor that is
connected, or use its internally programmed ‘default’ mode. Please note that
only the internal default timings can be edited in this dialog.
UltraVista Plus Installation and Operations Manual
15
If Use the Monitors Preferred Mode is selected, but no valid EDID can be
read from the attached monitor, then the x4 firmware will program the output
to use the default mode timings.
The rest of the dialog is identical to that for setting the Input timings, with the
exception that for the output monitors it is possible to select Analog RGB
(“VGA”) output as well as DVI.
All modifications to the Output… settings can be save as a .vqs file,
removing the requirement to input the same settings again. To save the
settings select the Save… command in the File menu. To open a saved .vqs
file select the Open… command.
Finally there is a Test button which should be used when defining a default
mode that you are not sure the attached monitor can support. In test mode,
the output timings are programmed, but they are not saved to non-volatile
memory on the x4 until the OK button is pressed to accept the mode.
