WARNING
1. Do not expose this unit to water, moisture, or
excessive humidity.
2. Do not install or place this unit in a built-in
cabinet, or other confined space without
adequate ventilation.
3. To prevent risk of electrical shock or fire
hazard, due to overheating do not obstruct
unit’s ventilation openings.
7. Unplug unit during lightening storms or when
not used for an extended period of time. A
surge protector is strongly recommended.
8. Protect the power cord from being walked on
or pinched, particularly at the plugs.
9. Use unit only with accessories specified by

CAUTION
HDMI is a very complex technology requiring continuous authentication of the signal and the same
video resolution and audio settings on all electronic equipment in the system. When there are multiple
sources and displays, the video resolution and audio setting on all connected units must be adjusted
to correspond with that of the display having the lowest video and audio capability.

FEATURES
INTRODUCTION
The Evolution by Vanco EVSP14VW Multi-Format Video Wall Processor with digital and analog audio-video inputs, integrated
USB media player, analog and digital audio breakouts, and IR, TCP/IP and RS-232 control, allows one video signal across
multiple displays to create a video wall! Out of the box, the EVSP14VW can handle up to four displays, in any configuration, or
with the built in loop-out can be expanded by daisy chaining multiple units together to create an even larger video wall system.
Have four displays in a 2x2 configuration, or line them up vertically or horizontally. The EVSP14VW can even be adjusted for
different size display bezels, and is able to change the orientation of the image on the displays to be viewed horizontal, vertical,
or even upside down for displays with a thinner bezel up top. The EVSP14VW supports Composite, VGA, USB, and HDMI video
inputs. Plug in a USB flash drive or hard drive, and the EVSP14VW will continuously play the content via the built in media
player. There is no need for a computer or source to display digital signage. Control of the unit can be done via IR (remote
included), TCP/IP, and RS-232. For any video wall application, small or large, with customization and control, the EVSP14VW
is a great solution!

CONNECT AND OPERATE
1. Connect a source such as a PC, Blu-Ray Player, game console, A/V Receiver, Cable or Satellite Receiver,
etc. to any of the analog or digital inputs on the unit. Inputs include analog VGA or composite, and digital
USB or HDMI
2. Connect displays such as an HDTV or HD Projector to the HDMI output(s) of the unit
3. Connect an additional EVSP14VW to the “LOOP OUT” port to add more displays for a larger video wall
setup (OPTIONAL)
4. For power, connect the provided power supply
At this point the display connected should display the source signal connected to the unit. If no signal is being
displayed, check all HDMI cables connected. If a display is having difficulty receiving a signal, access the
display’s menu and adjust the resolution (lowest to highest until signal is displayed). A 24 Hz vertical refresh
rate may work better than 60 Hz or higher.
IR EXTENSION
The EVSP14VW can be controlled via IR with the included IR remote control. The front panel of the processor
has an IR sensor that can be pointed to, or as an option, can be hidden and be controlled by the included IR
Receiver (RX).
Simply connect the IR Receiver (RX) into the “IR-EXT” port on the back of the unit. The IR Receiver (RX) pigtail
can be led out to an area where the IR remote control can still reach it line of sight while the main unit is
hidden.

TROUBLE-SHOOTING
1. Best results are usually achieved when the source and display resolutions are the same. If resolutions differ, the
extenders will try to adjust the signal to match the resolution of the HDTV with the lowest resolution. This will result in a
picture with a lower resolution on the other HDTV sets.
2. If you do not get audio and video, access the “setup” menu on the TV to adjust the audio and video settings. If the HDMI
control circuit cannot establish a handshake, then there usually will be no audio or video in addition to a blue or black
screen with a statement similar to “this protocol not supported” or “weak signal”.
3. If the above mentioned messages display, reset the receiver by disconnecting the power supply. You can also disconnect
all of the HDMI and power cables, wait 15 minutes for any voltages to decay and then reconnect all of the cables.
4. If you are still encountering issues, attempt the “hot-plug concept. With all of the HDMI cables disconnected, turn on
the source and plug in the HDMI cable into it’s output, then power up the Vanco unit and plug the HDMI cable into it’s
input, finally turn on the display and plug the HDMI cable from the receiver into it. This activates all of the devices in
corresponding order and results in a signal being plugged into a device that is on and will attempt to connect the signal.
5. Most of the major source and display manufacturers employ a proprietary control channel to communicate between
devices from the same manufacturer. Sometimes this can interfere with the HDMI control circuit or the authentication
of the signal. Call the manufacturer if you experience this issue. Sometimes a player, an audio/video receiver, or a cable/
satellite box may not have the latest software update, usually this can be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website.
