Input Module
DX-700 Input Modules provide the system’s input,
scaling, and mixing functions. Within each module, the
input source is selected from among the various input
connectors and scaled to the required size and position
in the final display.
Output Modules
System Module
Each module provides three outputs, which can drive one
(or more) attached displays from any portion of a selected
source image.
The System module provides connections for Ethernet, synchronization
(genlock), monitoring, DMX and diagnostics.
Under the DX-700 Management Menu:
• Use the Ethernet Menu to configure Ethernet parameters.
• Use the Setup Wizard to configure outputs and groups.
• Use the Monitor Setup Menu to set monitor output parameters, test patterns, and
the monitor’s video source.
• Use the Input Wizard to configure inputs.
• Use the Input Management Menu to fine tune inputs.
NNI Output Module
DVI Output Module
Runs next generation LEDs.
Each output is limited to
1024 x 768 pixels.
Runs legacy LEDs. Each
output is limited to
800 x 600 pixels.
• Use the Genlock Menu to set the master sync source, and individual bank
genlock sources.

3
Ensure that DX-700 power is off.
Carefully insert the module, and push it into the
chassis until the module’s top latch stops
against the chassis.
Retaining Screw
Orient the module so that the power connector is
at the bottom.
5
Simultaneously push both latches towards the
center of the module, until the module is fully
seated against the chassis.
CAUTION
Chassis
Always push both latches
simultaneously.

When both latches are clear of the chassis,
remove the module.
DX-700 Module Configuration Rules
1
In the most basic of DX-700 “single bank” configurations, you must have at least one input
module and one output module — to route video to an LED wall.
2
As you face the rear of the chassis, the right-most module in the Input/Output Section must
always be an Output Module. It must always be right-justified against the System Module.

Slots that do not contain modules must always have blank panels installed.
Storing Spare Modules
Within any bank, all modules must be adjacent to each other, with no blank panels
in-between, and all Output Module(s) are always right-justified.
Blank
The DX-700 will not recognize modules that are installed to the left of a blank
panel. They will be treated as spares.

If the above prompt occurs, and provided that a System Module is properly
installed, on the Startup Diagnostic Menu you can press the DX-700
Management button, and access a subset of management functions.

With the exception of “spare” modules, if the DX-700 determines that any
modules are incorrectly installed (or missing), a Startup Diagnostic Menu
appears which prompts you to power down and re-configure your modules.

Please remember the following important “module” configuration rules.
Input
Bank 1
Blank
DX-700 supports a wide number of system configurations. Input and output modules are installed in
“banks,” consisting of one (or more) input modules, and either one or two output modules (with two
being the maximum allowed in a bank). By definition, a “bank” is a way of combining inputs and
outputs into independent video processors that are capable of driving one (or more) LED walls.
In multi-bank configurations, all banks must be directly adjacent to one another, with no
blank panels in between.
