Overview
Matrox MicroQuad is operated using the Matrox MicroQuad buttons located on
the unit (see “Using the Matrox MicroQuad buttons” on page 14) or using the
Matrox MicroQuad Remote Control Panel (see “Using the Matrox MicroQuad
Remote Control Panel” on page 17). Matrox MicroQuad also features status
LEDs (see “Understanding the Matrox MicroQuad status LEDs”), and DIP
switches for performing various functions (see “Setting the Matrox MicroQuad
DIP switches” on page 15”).
Understanding the Matrox MicroQuad status
LEDs
Matrox MicroQuad features the following status LEDs:
• SDI 1, SDI 2, SDI 3, and SDI 4
$
Green
$
Red
The input source is connected.
The input source is not connected.
• Power The LED is green when power is supplied to Matrox MicroQuad
and the hardware is functioning properly.
¦ Note If the Matrox MicroQuad unit exceeds normal operating temperature, all
four SDI LEDs will flash red as a warning. For more information see “Matrox
MicroQuad operating safety feature” on page 6.
Matrox MicroQuad input channels
Matrox MicroQuad supports four input channels that correspond to the SDI input
connectors (SDI 1 to SDI 4). The SDI input connector number and the input
channel number correspond. For example, SDI input connector 1 (SDI 1)
corresponds to input channel 1 and SDI input connector 4 (SDI 4) corresponds to
input channel 4. If DIP switch 2 is OFF on the Matrox MicroQuad unit (see
“Setting the Matrox MicroQuad DIP switches” on page 15) or Hide HDMI
labels in the DIP Switch Settings of the Matrox MicroQuad Remote Control
Panel is not selected (see “Using the Matrox MicroQuad Remote Control Panel”
on page 17), the HDMI labels that appear on the HDMI output will correspond to
the input channel numbers. In the following examples, SDI input connector 1
(SDI 1) corresponds to CAM 1 (input channel 1) and SDI input connector 4
(SDI 4) corresponds to CAM 4 (input channel 4).
You can also show the VU meters for each input channel. For more information
on VU meters, see “Monitoring audio levels” on page 13.

¦ Note If the resolution and frame rate on all SDI input sources do not match,
only SDI input channel 1 (SDI 1) will be displayed while the other channels will
appear black.
Matrox MicroQuad full screen view
Matrox MicroQuad input channels
12
Matrox MicroQuad’s synchronized inputs
Matrox MicroQuad synchronizes the video and audio on the HDMI output to
SDI input channel 1 (SDI 1). This ensures that when the HDMI display is in
quadrant view, all four video outputs are synchronized, thereby eliminating
artifacts and video tearing.
¦ Note If nothing is connected to SDI input channel 1 (SDI 1), then Matrox
MicroQuad automatically synchronizes the HDMI output to the next available
valid SDI input channel.
HDMI output display
Matrox MicroQuad outputs the video and audio from the SDI inputs to an HDMI
display device. The video output can be displayed either in quadrant view or in
full screen view, and you can select the audio channel pairs to be output.
Quadrant view and full screen view
Matrox MicroQuad allows you to monitor up to four SDI input sources at the
same time in quadrant view (see figure “Matrox MicroQuad quadrant view” on
page 11), or view a selected SDI input source in full screen view on the HDMI
display device (see figure “Matrox MicroQuad full screen view” on page 11).
The quadrant view is the default view when you first supply power to Matrox
MicroQuad. A red selection box can be used in quadrant view to indicate which
video input will be viewed in full screen view when selected. You can show or
hide the red selection box using the DIP switch settings on the Matrox
MicroQuad unit (see “Setting the Matrox MicroQuad DIP switches” on page 15)
or the Matrox MicroQuad Remote Control Panel (see “Using the Matrox
MicroQuad Remote Control Panel” on page 17).
To switch from quadrant view to full screen view, to move from one input source
to the next, or to select a video input to view in full screen, see “Using the Matrox
MicroQuad buttons” on page 14 or “Using the Matrox MicroQuad Remote
Control Panel” on page 17.
Selecting the audio channel pairs to output
Matrox MicroQuad allows you to select up to four audio channel pairs (from
audio channels 1 to 8) to output to the HDMI display device. To do this, you must
use the Matrox MicroQuad Remote Control Panel (see “Using the Matrox
MicroQuad Remote Control Panel” on page 17). If you do not indicate which
audio pairs to output, audio channels 1 to 8 will be output by default. Audio is
output for the currently selected input source, or you can lock the audio output to
input channel 1 (SDI 1) using the DIP switches (see “Setting the Matrox
MicroQuad DIP switches” on page 15) or using the Matrox MicroQuad Remote
Chapter 3, Using Your Matrox MicroQuad
13
Control Panel (see “Using the Matrox MicroQuad Remote Control Panel” on
page 17).
Monitoring audio levels
You can monitor the audio levels of your input sources through VU meters by
setting the DIP switch setting accordingly on the Matrox MicroQuad unit (see
“Setting the Matrox MicroQuad DIP switches” on page 15) or in the Matrox
MicroQuad Remote Control Panel (see “Using the Matrox MicroQuad Remote
Control Panel” on page 17).
Vertical colored bars indicate the input level. As the audio source is played, the
color of the input level is green at or below -18 dBFS, yellow between -17 to
-9 dBFS, and red above -8 dBFS. Gray boxes indicate that no audio is present. If
needed, adjust the audio level on your input source device to keep the average
input level between -60 and -18 dBFS. To select the audio input pair that you
would like to monitor, see “Using the Matrox MicroQuad Remote Control Panel”
on page 17. By default, input pair 1-2 will be displayed on the VU meters.
