Getting Started
We recommend that you:

Unpack the equipment carefully and save the original box and packaging
materials for possible future shipment

Review the contents of this user manual
i
2.1
Go to http://www.kramerelectronics.com to check for up-to-date
user manuals, application programs, and to check if firmware
upgrades are available (where appropriate).
Achieving the Best Performance
To achieve the best performance:

Use only good quality connection cables (we recommend Kramer highperformance, high-resolution cables) to avoid interference, deterioration in
signal quality due to poor matching, and elevated noise levels (often
associated with low quality cables)

Do not secure the cables in tight bundles or roll the slack into tight coils

Avoid interference from neighboring electrical appliances that may adversely
influence signal quality

Position your Kramer DS Vision® 3000 away from moisture, excessive
sunlight and dust


For best performance the spec of the cable should be:

Gauge: 24AWG (should be written on the cable)

Wire: solid wire (should be written on the cable)
For cable runs over 100m (330ft) the SKEW delay of the cable should be no
more than 20ns per 100m (330ft) (should be written in the spec of the cable)

DS Vision® 3000 - Connecting the DS Vision® 3000
4.1
Broadcaster/Transmitter Connections
1. Connect the broadcaster/transmitter Video In port to the computer’s video
card with a video cable.
2. Connect the broadcaster/transmitter Serial In port to the computer’s serial
port with a serial extender cable.
3. Connect the broadcaster/transmitter Audio In port to the computer’s line out
port with a stereo audio cable.
4. To use the Video Service Utility, connect the broadcaster/transmitter control
port and the computer’s serial port with a serial download cable.
5.
4.2
(Optional) Connect a monitor to the broadcaster/transmitter Video Out port.
Receiver/Receiver L Connections
1. Connect the screen to the video port.
2. Connect the audio/speakers to the audio port.
Note: if you are connecting the audio out of the receivers to speakers they must have
an internal amplifier. The audio out is a line out extension of the player.
3. Where relevant connect the serial connection to the serial port.
4.3
Receiver DCL Connections
1. Connect one screen to video port 1 and another screen to video port 2.
2. Connect the audio/speakers of the first screen to stereo audio port 1 and
connect the audio/speakers of the second screen to stereo audio port 2.
Ensure that the video and audio ports are connected to the same numbers,
i.e. one screen to video and audio ports 1 and the other screen to video and
audio ports 2.
3. Where relevant connect the serial connection to the serial ports 1 and/or 2.

4.4
Connecting CATx Cables
Connect the CATx cables as follows.
4.4.1
Connecting the Broadcaster/Transmitter

Connect CATx cables to the system ports of the broadcaster/transmitter and
the system In ports of receivers/L/DCL or line splitter L.
4.4.2
Connecting/Cascading a Line Splitter Long

Connect CATx cables to the system out ports of the line splitter long and the
system in ports of receivers/L/DCL or further line splitters Long.
4.4.3
Cascading a Receiver DCL

Connect a CATx cable to the system out port of the receiver DCL and the
system in port of a receiver/L/DCL or line splitter long.
4.5
Connecting to the Power Supply

Connect the transmitter/broadcaster and all receiver and line splitter long
units to the power supply using the AC/DC adapters provided with the
products.
Once the system is connected the DS Vision® 3000 system broadcasts to all
remote monitors/speakers.
4.6
Adjusting the Picture Quality
When the broadcasted picture needs adjusting:

The receiver (version 3)/ receiver L/ receiver DCL/ line splitter long can be
tuned either via the service utility, or by using the optional tuning unit
Note: Where there are cascaded receivers/ receiver DCL/line splitters long you must tune
them from the unit nearest the broadcaster/transmitter onwards.
4.7
Note on Serial Extension:
The serial connection requires two cables: from player to a transmitter or
broadcaster, use a straight serial cable; from receiver to screen, use a cross cable.
