Introduction
General The MX-1004PF Professional Quad-View Video Processor is an advanced video processor for multimedia
presentations. It is an ideal solution for applications where up to four video signals must be displayed on a single
display. It supports up to 16 video inputs, of which four can be outputted simultaneously with the desired display
layout through software control. The advanced video processor allows you to manipulate output images, wherever
positions and whatever sizes you want for viewing two computers or two video signals or a combination.
The embedded scaler converts signals from input sources to match the native resolution of monitors, flat
panel displays, projectors as well as user-selectable output settings up to WUXGA (1920x1200). Dual outputs are
provided in both analog (VGA) and digital (DVI) format, one is connected to remote display and the other is
connected to on-site display for real time monitoring.

projected. The video image could be burned in to the display device.
Installation Procedures Unpacking
Remove the MX-1004PF from the shipping container and examine it for any signs of shipping damage or
missing items (check with package contents above). All shipping items should be saved if the product is to be
moved or returned for service. Shipping unit back to dealers for service not in the original box may result in
voiding warranty or additional cost.
Placement
The unit uses convection to cool. A fan is not needed, so do not block the sides of this device or stack
another device on the top or bottom of the MX-1004PF.
Connections
We recommend the highest quality cables for both input and output connections.
1. Switch off the MX-1004PF and all devices that you want to connect.
2. Connect a monitor, a projector or other displays that comes with DVI / VGA inputs by using 1 male-to-male
DVI (VGA) cable to MX-1004PF DVI output (you can connect 2 displays equipped with DVI and VGA
respectively by a DVI to DVI&VGA breakout cable (DDVY01)).
3. Plug in DVI to DVI&VGA breakout cable (DDVY01) to DVI-YPbPr-VGA-x and plug in VGA to component
adapter (VYPBA01) to the VGA connector of the breakout cable.
4. Connect a device equipped S-Video & CVBS through S-Video & CVBS breakout cable.
5. Connect a device equipped with DVI output (such as PC) to the DVI connector of the breakout cable.
6. Connect a device equipped with component video output (YPbPr such as DVD player or camera) to the 3-RCA
jack of the VYPBA01.
7. Connect a device equipped with VGA output (such as laptop) to the VGA connector of MX-1004PF.
8. Connect a device equipped with composite video output to composite input of the MX-1004PF.
9. Connect your computer with the MX-1004PF by a 9-pin RS-232 cable and then install the software.
10. Plug in AD power cord into AC power socket.
11. Execute the control software and establish the connection between PC/Laptop and MX-1004PF.
12. For detailed software control operation, please refer to the software instruction section.

Operation Software
System Requirement and Precautions 1. The MX-1004PF provides a software control program, Quartet, which runs under Microsoft Windows 98, 2000,
XP, Vista through the interface of RS-232 serial control.
2. Before you click on the icon of the software, make sure you have secured the connection between your
computer COM port and the MX-1004PF and switched on the MX-1004PF with green LED light.
Instruction of Software Connection 1. Power up the MX-1004PF and you can see VFD on the front panel blink. Make sure the serial port mode is
right for your setting. RS-232 mode:
, RS-485 mode:
or
.
2. The first step after running the software is to automatically link (By last COM port setting) if the device
responses correctly through RS-232, it will start application normally, otherwise the dialog will show up. You
can click the “scan” button to get detail information. The information will help you choose the correct COM
port and Device ID. After set the correct COM port and ID, you can select “Linkage” and click “Execute” button.
When the MX-1004PF is correctly connected, you can close the Linkage dialog. If the serial connection is well
established, you can see work main control console as below.

Recommendations
9
Check if you correctly and firmly plug AC power core into MX-1004PF.
9
If you are recovering from power outage, accidentally unplug the power core or
other power surge conditions, leave the device off for a while and then power it
on again.
9
Make sure all cables are in good working condition and properly connected to
the MX-1004PF and displays.
9
Configure the output video resolution so that it doesn’t excess the native
resolution of the display. ( in this case, the message of “out of range” is usually
showed on your screen)
9
Make sure video sources are accurately selected to the right channels.
9
We suggest that don’t use T-connectors to split your video source into to
images displayed on two different screens. That will lower output video quality.
Use a distribution amplifier instead of T-connectors.
9
Make sure the video source is not compressed and maintains the highest native
resolution.
9
Use color balance or auto configuration.
Auto color configuration only works at VGA and component inputs. Limited Warranty
