Table 1. MT106-100 General
The MT106-100 is a Scan Reducer Card designed
for use in a Multi-Tasker enclosure. When
installed in a Multi-Tasker, this card allows the
connection of a computer video source to a display
or VCR capable of accepting composite or S-Video
signals.
The MT106-100 automatically supports VGA
(640 x 480) and SVGA (800 x 600) input signals
with refresh rates up to 100 Hz, and XGA
(1024 x 768) input signals with refresh rates up to
75 Hz. The MT106-100 converts these noninterlaced computer video signals to interlaced
NTSC/PAL video signals, offering simultaneous
Composite Video and S-Video outputs. The
MT106-100 also provides a built-in 1-in 3-out
Composite Video distribution amplifier. All three
Composite Video outputs and the S-Video output
are simultaneously available.

Table 2. MT106-100 Mechanical
The MT106-100 has a number of features that can
be controlled via RS-232 control through the
Multi-Tasker Basic Enclosure. These features
include horizontal and vertical positioning,
quadrant zoom as well as, brightness and
sharpness controls.

The MT106-100 offers a 15-pin HD female
(VGA-type) computer video input connector.
Though this can easily be adapted to 5 BNC
connectors for RGBHV using an ALTINEX VGA to
RGBHV adapter cable. The composite video
outputs are provided through female BNC
connectors and the S-Video output is provided on
a standard 4-pin mini-DIN connector. The 4-pin
mini-DIN connector can be adapted to 2 BNC
connectors using ALTINEX adapter cables.

INSTALLING YOUR MT106-100
6
Step 1. Slide the MT106-100 into an available
slot in the Multi-Tasker™ Basic Enclosure
in order to connect to the bus. Make sure
that the MT106-100 Scan Reducer card
fits into place. Secure the card to the
Multi-Tasker™ by tightening the retainer
screws located on the top and bottom of
the MT106-100 Scan Reducer card.
Square brackets “[
command.
]” are part of the
2.
Use uppercase letters for all commands.
After processing a command, an OK or ER
string will be returned as feedback if "F" is
included at the end of a command string or if
the unit ID is zero.
7.2 DESCRIPTION OF COMMANDS
Each command consists of three parts:
function, card ID, and unit ID. [Function, Card
ID, Unit ID].
Step 2. The LED on the card panel will turn red
indicating that the card is in full operation.
A green LED indicates that an input
signal is present. An LED that is blinking
red indicates that the card is experiencing
a problem. If the LED is blinking, see
Troubleshooting Guide in Section 8.
Example:
[VER C3 U2]
VER= function
C3 = Card ID
U2= Unit ID
Step 3. Connect a coaxial cable from the video
source to the input connector of the
MT106-100.
Connect
the
output
connectors of the MT106-100 to the
display devices through a coaxial cable.
The Card ID is an assigned value from 1 to 19,
based on which slot the card is put in. Card ID 0
(C0) is used for the controller (see user’s guide
for the MT100-100). Changing the position of a
card will significantly affect the commands
recorded on software definitions or a third party
control system.
Step 4. Starting from the left, identify the slot
number where the MT106-100 card is
plugged into the Enclosure and note that
it is for RS-232 control.
OPERATION
1.
Unit ID has a value from 0 to 9. Unit ID 0 should
be used for single unit operation. If the Unit ID
is set to 0, then each command can be used
without Ui (use command [SETU0]; see user’s
guide for the MT100-100).

7.1 RS-232 CONTROL
When used in the Multi-Tasker™ Basic
Enclosure, the MT106-100 has many advanced
remote
control
capabilities,
which
are
accessible
through
standard
RS-232
communication. The actual controlling can be
accomplished through a computer control
system or any other device capable of sending
RS-232 commands.
Example:
[VERC3]:
for unit ID zero
[VERC3Ui]: for unit ID other than zero
[VERC3]:
equivalent to [VERC3U0]
1. [VER]
This command receives the software version
and card type for the MT106-100 card.
7.1.1 RS-232 INTERFACE
The RS-232 commands for the MT106-100 are
in a simple ASCII character format.
Command Format: [VERCnUi]
Cn = card ID No. (n = slot # from 1 to 19)
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0 to 9) (refer to the
MT100-100 user’s guide for explanation)

default values and place the card in NTSC
format.
Example:
One MT106-100 card is in slot #2 of unit 3.
Sending the command [VERC2U3] to the
Multi-Tasker™ Basic Enclosure will yield the
following feedback:
4. [ + ] or [ - ]
These commands allow the user to increase or
decrease the selected attribute value. They
must be used immediately following one of the
following STATUS commands.

This command receives the status of the card.
Command Format: [CnUi]
Cn = card ID (n = a slot # from 1 to 19)
(1-8 for MT100-101 or 1-4 for MT100-106)
Ui = unit id (i = 0 to 9) (refer to the MT100-100

around through its range of values.
There is one MT106-100 card in slot #2 of unit
3 set for NTSC outputs. Sending the command
[C2U3] to the Multi-Tasker™ will provide the
following feedback:
Any command other than [ + ] or [ - ] will reset
the previous selection and the STATUS
command will need to be reissued.

The current Horizontal Position is set to a value
of 10. Use the [ + ] and [ - ] controls to find the
best horizontal position. Starting from 10, first
increment the value to 12.
If there is no card in slot #2 of unit 3, sending
the [C2U3] command will not return any
feedback from the card.

Next, decrement the value back down to 8 for
the best picture.

MULTI-TASKER
Cause 3: Card cage slot has a problem.
8.3 NO DISPLAY
Solution 1: Test the card in other slots of the
card cage. If the slot was damaged,
the card may work in other slots. If
other slots work and the LED lights,
the problem is the card cage slot.
The card cage may require service.
Call ALTINEX at (714) 990-2300. If
the other slots do not work and the
LED is still not lit, see Solution 2.
Cause 1: The source has a problem.
Solution:
Check the source and make sure
that there is a signal present and all
source connections are correct. If
the source is working and there is
still no display, see Cause 2.
Cause 2: The card output is not selected.
Solution:
Solution 2: Take any other known good card
with an LED and verify that the slot
used is good by seeing if the other
card’s LED lights in that slot. If it
lights, then the original card may be
the source of the problem. Call
ALTINEX at (714) 990-2300.
Select the card output. See RS-232
accessible commands in Section 7.
If no display is present, see
Cause 3.
Cause 3: Cable connections are incorrect.
Solution:

working properly.

connected. Also, make sure that the
continuity and wiring are good. If

Solution 1: Look at the card and verify that
there is no damage. If there is no
damage, see Solution 2.
Solution:
Solution 2: Verify that all IC’s are seated in their
sockets. If the LED is still blinking
red, see Cause 2.
Make sure the display has power
and is turned ON. If there is still no
