Operation
Description
The Extron PIP 444 is a 4-input, composite video, S-video, or component video picture-in-picture video
processor. The unit can output the signals simultaneously to three displays: one component video, one S-video,
and one composite video. The PIP 444 features window transition effects, freeze control, and genlock capability.
Twenty factory presets or user-defined presets save picture number, size, position, and priority settings.
Installation and Cabling
1. Turn off power to the PIP and all other devices that will be connected to it.
2. Install the four rubber feet on the bottom of the PIP, or mount the PIP in a rack or furniture. For rack
mounting, remove the self-adhesive rubber feet if they have been attached.
3. Make connections as follows:
I
Input (top) connectors — Connect up to four component
video, S-video, or composite video devices to these BNC
connectors. Wire the video formats as shown at right.
Buffered
Loop-through
You must configure each input to identify the connected video
format. See Configure the Inputs, in Operation, at right.
Input loop-through (bottom) connectors — If desired,
connect local monitors to these female BNC connectors.
The processor buffers the video input and loops it out on
these connectors. Cable the video formats as shown at right.
Output connectors — Connect a component video, S-video,
and/or composite video display device to these BNC
connectors. Wire the video formats as shown, below right.
NOTE The component video, S-video, and composite
video outputs are all active simultaneously, so
multiple displays can be connected.
