Smart Remote Display System
1. INTRODUCTION
The Smart Remote Display System consists of an ultra-thin remote display module (RDM) and a
smart, high-definition remote electronics box that can run an extra peripheral SDI display to
maximize the viewing experience. The remote electronics design provides more mounting
flexibility because the video processing electronics box can be located up to 50 feet from the
displays. The high-definition display modules are available in a range of screen sizes and the
mounting options allow customers to configure a system that fits their aircraft’s cabin interior.
This manual provides general instructions about how to install all bulkhead configurations of the
Smart Remote Display System onto your aircraft. It contains everything you need to know to wire
the components and confirm that the system is functioning correctly.
1.1. System Overview
The Smart RMEB (P/N 0700-150) (P/N 441-2028-100) is designed for aircraft with a Rockwell
Collins’ Venue™ Cabin Management System and Cabin Electronics System™ (CES). Although
the Smart RMEB can operate a second 3G-SDI display using RS-232 control and SDI cable to
route the digital video sources/signals, the Rockwell Collins’ application software will select only
one display at a time—either the RDM or the SDI. The interface circuitry and wiring is identical
for all Remote Display Module (RDM) configurations; the only difference between the
configurations is the amount of power the Smart RMEB provides to the displays.

2.1. Smart RMEB Configurations
The Smart RMEB has several possible operational mode configurations, depending on the
specific aircraft installation. The unit has four possible media inputs (HDMI, SDI, Streaming
Video over Ethernet, or USB), two possible video outputs (RDM and a peripheral SDI Display),
and a single analog audio output for consistent sound quality at any volume. Additionally, the
system can play media from the internal solid-state storage drive.
During typical operations, a single media source is selected as the priority output at any given
time, and the priority media source can be simultaneously distributed to (either one or both of)
the displays and the audio output device. (Note: Rockwell Collins’ cabin management system
has the ability to disable either display.)
3. REMOTE DISPLAY MODULE INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
3.1. Mounting Configurations
Remote Display Modules (RDMs) have three distinct mounting options: flush mount, semi-proud
mount, and proud mount configurations. The RDMs can be flush mounted, mounted with a sleek
bezel (semi-proud), or proud-mounted between a bezel and cosmetic back. The photos below
are representative of the different bulkhead mounting options for the remote displays. Please
contact your sales associate for specific configurations.

3.1.1. Bulkhead Mounting Requirements
The Smart RMEB and RDMs do not require any external forced-air cooling.
A flush mounted RDM can mount either from the back, through an interior wall, or from
the front mounting tabs. Proud-mounted RDMs must attach from the front into the
cosmetic back.
Use the technical drawings to assist in the installation process. Pay close attention to the
dimensions when considering installation requirements. Dimensions for some models
may vary, so be sure to consult the latest drawings.
Touching the LCD with excessive force may leave pressure spots
that show in video display. Handle with care.
4. ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS FOR COSMETIC COMPONENTS
This section provides instructions about how to assemble the cosmetic backs and bezels. To add
a stylish, proud-mount option, mount the cosmetic back to the bulkhead, attach the RDM to the
cosmetic back, and then snap on the bezel.
Note: Protect cosmetic and sensitive components from scratches, nicks, and debris during
hardware installation.
4.1. Mounting Cosmetic Backs to a Bulkhead
The cosmetic backs use two different types of mounting brackets, depending on the size of RDM
that you install. The cosmetic backs are a universal fit—there is no top or bottom.
Technical drawings for the Remote Display System accessories are available on the separate
high-definition display product pages on the Rosen Aviation website.
 Attach the 19”, 22”, 24”, and 26” cosmetic back to the bulkhead using the four
mounting brackets and a minimum of four FHP screws (customer supplied) in the .188
mounting holes, as shown below.

5.1. Pinout Connections
There are several ways to connect the remote display system to an aircraft’s entertainment
system.
Follow the pinout descriptions on the technical drawing (P/N 0700-150-CD) to assist in
completing the wiring connections.
Note: This display is for entertainment purposes only; connect to a non-critical power bus.
5.2. Address Strapping
The Smart RMEB has different IP addresses based on the platform mode that you set.
5.2.1. Factory Mode
From the factory, the Smart RMEB will have an IP Address set to 10.10.10.50 with a
netmask of 255.255.255.0.

The factory mode IP Address is always hardcoded; therefore, you do not have to set
the address bit pins.
 The address bit pins are pins 1 thru 5 on the P2 connector.

5.2.2. Venue Mode
The Smart RMEB in the Venue mode has an IP Address of 10.240.11.xx with a netmask
of 255.240.0.0.
The last octet of the IP address (xx) is calculated on how the address bit pins 1 thru 5 are
wired on the P2 Connector.
To specify an IP address of 10.240.11.1, wire the address bit pins 1 thru 5 on the
Smart RMEB as follows.

Note: In the table above, only Bit 0 is tied to ground and all other bits are OPEN. This
combination gives binary 00001, resulting in value of 1 in decimal.
Similarly, if the Smart RMEB needs an IP address of 10.240.11.2, the address bit pin 3
(Bit 1) needs to grounded and the other pins need to be left OPEN, as follows:

The IP Address of the RMEB in Venue mode will range between 10.240.11.1 and
10.240.11.31, based on how you wire the address pins 1 thru 5.
Note: If all address bit pins are OPEN, the resulting IP address will be 10.240.11.0 and
this is an invalid IP address for Venue mode. All IP addresses must be between
10.240.11.1 and 10.240.11.31.
Each Smart RMEB must have a unique IP address on the network. Multiple Smart
RMEBs with same IP address are invalid.

7.5.2. Horizontal and Vertical Adjustments
The Horizontal/Vertical Scale and Position settings enable you to shift the picture’s
position to fill the screen. The Scale settings enable stretching/cropping an image and the
Position settings enable you to shift the image horizontally or vertically, thus minimizing
or eliminating the black bars at the edge of the picture.
Select the Advanced and then choose an adjustment option.
A control bar, similar to Figure 17, to adjust the option will appear.
The range of values for these settings is -31 to +31, with a default of 0.
Decreasing the Scale settings will reduce or crop the picture, and increasing them will
stretch it in either direction.
Decreasing the Position settings will shift the picture left/up, and increasing them will shift
it right/down.

7.5.3. Overscan
Use Overscan to conceal any screen anomalies that may be visible from either the HDMI
or 3G-SDI input signals. When enabled, the setting cuts off a small percentage around
the edges of the image and resizes it to fit full screen. You can set the overscan value for
any source or format, but any video is scaled to 1080p.
Select AdvancedOverscan and then choose a setting value.
The options are 0% (Disabled), 1.67%, 2.5%, 5%, 7%, and 10%. The default is 0%.
The overscanned image will automatically update when you switch between percentage
values. You do not have to cycle power for the change to take effect.
