1 Introducing the Leaf True Matrix system
1.1 Overview
The Leaf True HDMI Matrix System comprises a Leaf LTHDMI88 or LTHDMI88E
interface unit and Leaf LTB1 or LTB1E breakouts. The Leaf True HDMI Matrix system
is designed to accept HDMI A/V sources at its inputs and route them to remotely
located breakouts. In this document, each input signal source is termed a source and
each output and breakout is called a zone.
Additional features include infrared (IR) control through feed and RS232 through feed
capability between the interface and breakouts. Note that these are through feeds only
and have no direct control function of the Leaf True system.
There are 2 model variants:
LTHDMI88 interface with LTB1 breakouts and
LTHDMI88E interface with LTB1E breakouts.
Whilst both model variants provide the routing and control features, the LTHDMI88E
extends this by providing Ethernet through feed capability. The LTHDMI88E has
additional circuitry and dedicated RJ45 type ports on its front panel that connect to
matching Ethernet ports at LTB1E breakouts.
Leaf True LTHDMI88
Leaf True LTHDMI88E
Leaf True LTB1
Leaf True LTB1E
Interconnection between a Leaf True interface and associated Leaf True breakouts is
via one single cat5e/6 cable for each breakout. Single cat5e /6 cable interconnect
between these components is made possible through the use of HDBaseT technology.
This technology enables Video and Audio, as well as Ethernet, IR, and RS232 through
feed to be all sent by a single cable per zone over large distances.
Cabling specifications and information can be found in supplementary documentation.
The Leaf True system is designed to be controlled via RS232 commands from 3rd party
control systems. Control of basic switching functions can be (also or instead) achieved
via a proprietary Leaf controller such as the Leaf TC3 connected by 6 wire Telco cable
and RJ12 (6P6C) modular connectors.
Leaf LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E manual
Page 4
Of 22
Manual control of the basic switching functions can be also be achieved by the use of
front panel mounted buttons on the LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E. See 6.3 - 6.4 for details
A corresponding set of display LEDs provide user feedback of the signal routing.
Both the LTHDMI88 and the LTHDMI88E are built into 2RU rack-mountable metal
housings and are provided with rubber feet should table / desktop mounting be
preferred.

2.1 HDBase T Connections
Each Leaf True breakout is connected to the interface by way of a single Cat5e/6 cable
to the HDBaseT output or zone ports across the lower part of the front panel.
2.2 Ethernet Ports
The Ethernet ports across the upper part of the front panel of LTHDMI88E are for
optional connection of Ethernet facilities for direct routing to remote Ethernet ports at
each LTB1E breakout.
The Ethernet connection is 100Base-T full duplex. An external Ethernet router / switch
may be added for added flexibility and performance.
The Orange LED on the Ethernet ports indicate handshake between the LTHDMI88E
and host Ethernet devices to which it is connected, but does not necessarily indicate
data flow from end to end.
2.3 Front Panel LED display and selection buttons
Left press button switch
Right press button switch
16 multi colour (green / cyan / blue) Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and 2 press button
switches are fitted at the right hand end of the front panel.
The LEDS are arranged in two rows of 8.

3.1 RJ12 control port
The 6 wire RJ12 port enables the LTHDMI88/E to be controlled by a proprietary LEAF
controller such as the TC3.
3.2 4 way DIP switch module
The rear panel accessible 4 position DIP switch controls functionality of the
LTHDMI88/E. The table below summarizes the settings:
NOTE: The interface will only read the DIP switch settings on power-up. The unit must
be powered off and then back on again for it to respond to any change of the DIP
switch settings.

Table 1: Dip Switch Settings
3.3 Digital Coax (S/PDIF) audio inputs:
The upper row of RCA sockets 1 to 8 are configured as digital coax (S/PDIF) stereo
audio input ports. They can be used as either alternative audio inputs (selectable with
discrete Audio Only commands) or the input points for audio only sources.
3.4 Stereo RCA analog outputs
The lower 2 rows of RCA sockets 1-8 are configured as stereo analog audio outputs
for connection to local devices such as centralised external amplifiers.
The source audio for these outputs can be either an HDMI input source, digital coax
(S/PDIF) stereo connector input or audio return from a zone breakout input.
The RCA outputs maybe routed manually or automatically (the default).
With automatic routing active, the RCA audio outputs will follow the zone audio output
of the same number. (example: If zone 4 is selected to source 2, then in automatic
mode the RCA audio will also come from source 2).
Leaf LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E manual
Page 8
Of 22
When a manual RCA audio output routing command is sent it will override this
automatic function for that output. When this output is switched off using a manual
audio command, automatic mode will be re-activated for that output.
Selectable audio sync delay is also available independently on these audio output ports
(ref: Audio Sync Delay).
3.5 3.5mm IR ports
The 3.5mm Remote IR connectors are used for routing external IR control signals in
one direction between the LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E and the connected LTB1 / LTB1E
breakouts. These connections are treated as through connections. That is, IR port 1
connects to the breakout connected to Zone 1, through to port 8 being connected to the
breakout at Zone 8.
The IR ports support direct connection and drive of Leaf “hammerhead” and other
compatible 5 volt, 3 wire (Tip Ring Sleeve / stereo plug) IR detectors to Leaf LB41 and
other compatible 2 wire (mono plug) IR blasters.
The system wide operating direction of the IR detectors and blasters (either Hub to
Zones or Zones to Hub) is configurable by DIP Switch 1.
If the IR Direction is set to “Hub to Zones” by DIP switch 1, the IR ports on the
LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E can be further configured by DIP Switch 2 to accept direct IR
drive from an external control system or similar instead of stand-alone IR detectors.
For this configuration, Stereo (Tip Ring Sleeve) 3.5mm leads must be used instead of
Mono leads for the IR interconnections from the control system to the Leaf
LTHDMI88/LTMI88E. The “Ring” connection of these leads at the LTHDMI88/LTMI88E
end (or both ends) must be left “floating” / not connected.
(See table 2 for DIP switch configuration details.)
If the IR input type is set to IR RX detector (DIP Switch 2 OFF/down):
then the IR output will be automatically modulated at 38Khz.
If the IR input type is set to IR direct drive (DIP switch 1:ON/up & DIP switch 2 ON/up):
then the received IR input will be directly passed through to the IR output.
Any external IR drive voltage should not exceed 5V.
3.6 RJ45 type “RS232 through” ports
The LEAF True system provides a bi-directional, full duplex “RS232 through” capability
between the LTHDMI88/LTHDMI88E and each of the connected LTB1/LTB1E
Breakouts through specific RJ45 connectors. These are for optional use by external
RS232 equipment. Connection from these ports to RS232 equipment would typically be
achieved through the use of RJ45 to DB9 RS232 adaptor leads. Leaf Audio has
suitable RJ45 to RS232 (DB9) Female adaptor leads (LT45DB9Female)available for
sale. Male DB9 RS232 connection may require the additional of M-M gender bender(s).
For convenience the pinouts of the RJ45 type “RS232 through” ports is shown below.

The power supply is fitted with a locking connector. Be sure to slide back the
locking sleeve on the plug before attempting to connect or disconnect it at the
LTHDMI88/E. Flat Side down is the correct orientation.
3.8 RS232 Serial Control connectors
The unit can be controlled by serial commands through the RS232 input port. Typically
this would be connected to a control system with a straight through DB9 Male to
Female RS232 lead. Some control systems may require only the TxD, RxD and Gnd
wires of an RS232 lead to be connected. The pin configurations of these 3 connections
on the DB9 plug is: TxD = Pin 2, RxD = Pin3, Gnd = Pin5.
3.8.1 Single LTHDMI88/E use
The RS232 Input port is used for controlling the unit.
The TERM (Termination) switch (ref: para 3.10) must be set to ON (Up).
3.8.2 Multiple LTHDMI88/E use
Multiple units can be chained together and addressed on the same RS232 link
by connecting the RS232 thru (out) port on one unit to the RS232 input port of
the next unit.
The last unit in the chain must have the TERM (Termination) switch (ref:para 3.10)
set to ON (Up), while all other units in the chain must have this switch set to OFF
(Down). The RS232 Input port is used for controlling the units.

4 BREAKOUTS
A Breakout is the “receiving end” of the Leaf True system and one is required for each
connected “zone” of the Leaf True system.
There are 2 variants of breakouts for the Leaf True system. These are the Leaf LTB1
and Leaf LTB1E.
They are identical except that the LTB1E has additional circuitry and RJ45 type socket
for Ethernet throughput and is designed to match the capabilities of the LTHDMI88E.
4.1 Local Power
Each breakout (LTB1 / LTB1E) is required to be powered by its own (local) power
supply and to be connected via a Cat5e / Cat6 cable link from its HDBaseT port to the
associated HDBase T port on the LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E. Use only the power
supplies that are provided by Leaf Audio for this purpose.
4.2 Mounting Bracket
Each is supplied with a mounting bracket which is designed to be attached to the
mounting surface and have the breakout clipped to it.

4.3 Status LEDs
A set of 3 Status LEDs are visible through apertures in the right hand side of the LTB1
and LTB1E.
LEDs 3,
2,
1.
The Status LEDs operations are:
LED 1 FLASHING (heartbeat) = The local 12V DC power supply is
connected and active.
LED 2 ON = The HDBaseT Cat5e / Cat6 cable link to the LTHDMI88/E has
been made successfully and is ready for video.
LED 3 ON = Protected (HDCP) video content is being transferred on the
HDBaseT link.
FLASHING = Non protected (no HDCP) video content is being
transferred on the HDBaseT link. Irregular flashing may indicate an
issue with the video link.
OFF = No video content is being transferred.
(Usually means that no source has been selected for that zone).

5 SYSTEM FEATURES
5.1 EDID Management
The Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) of all sinks (TVs, Display Panels, etc)
attached to a zone are merged and presented to the source. This ensures that the
source outputs the correct audio and video format to all sinks .
When a sink is switched to a source the LTHDMI88 remembers its EDID. After a
calibration, or each time new sinks are switched, the combination or merge of this sink
EDID and previously switched sink EDIDs is calculated and stored for use thereafter
until power off or recalibration.
This guarantees true repeater functionality while minimising interruption to active TVs
or Display panels when selecting sources.
5.2 Calibration
This process effectively gathers all of the information from the source and sink devices
(EDID and HDCP keys data) and pre-calculates the EDID merging and HDCP key list.
This results in faster switching times and isolates the effect on one zone from another
zone when new connections are routed. Refer to the Calibration description in the
Operation section for more detail.
5.3 Exclusive Source Selection (Zone Lock mode)
A source can be locked to a particular zone. The exclusive source selection feature
enables enhanced features, such as multichannel audio, 3D etc, to become active
in the locked zone (if supported by both the source and zone equipment) – even if
other zones in the system do not support these features.
This feature is activated by RS232 command.
Any one zone can be locked to a desired source thus creating a so-called
“locked connection”.
Effectively this feature overrides the system merged EDID for this connection
and allows the unique EDID for the zone to be passed through to the source. A
typical example would be switching a 3D-capable zone to a 3D-capable source
in instances where not all zones in the system can support 3D.
No other zone can connect to a source that is locked.
Multiple locked connections are allowed but locked sources cannot be shared.
When the zone of a locked connection is disconnected the source is unlocked
and available for selection by other sources.
When the zone of a locked connection changes to a new source the existing
source is unlocked.
When a global command is sent then the existing source is unlocked
Locking a zone to a source that is already switched to one or more other zones
will cause that source to disconnect from those zones.
Leaf LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E manual
Page 14
Of 22
5.4 Audio Only Source
Any input can be set up as an audio only source by connecting a desired stereo
(S/PDIF) digital audio source to a nominated digital coax (S/PDIF) RCA socket (1 to 8)
and leaving the associated HDMI input port vacant. The audio only source can then be
selected as per normal (source selection 1 to 8) and will transmit the selected audio
together with a “black” video signal.
5.5 Flexible Audio Routing
Flexible audio routing within the system allows audio from any of:
HDMI sources
Digital Coax (S/PDIF) audio input connectors on the LTB1 / LTB1E Breakouts
Digital Coax (S/PDIF) audio input connectors on the LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E
to be routed to the Stereo RCA analog output connectors on the LTHDMI88 /
LTHDMI88E.
The source range for the selected audio inputs under this feature becomes:
HDMI input ports: 1 to 8
LTB1 / LTB1E Breakouts: 9 to 16
LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E: 17 to 24
This feature is activated by specific RS232 commands. Refer to separate
documentation for further detail.
[notes: If Multichannel Audio is selected as the source for the RCA analog outputs then
that output will be muted. S/PDIF audio performance from LTB1 / LTB1E breakouts
may be unreliable in instances where the Cat5e / Cat6 cabling to them exceeds
approximately 50 metres or is subjected to electrical interference.]
5.6 Audio Sync Delay
Each pair of stereo RCA audio output ports has programmable audio sync delay
capability which may be useful to bring the audio from these ports and the displayed
video closer to synchronism. This feature is activated by specific RS232 commands.
Refer to separate documentation for further detail.

6 Operation
6.1 Apply Power
Once power is applied to the LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E it will go through a Power Up
routine lasting a minute or two. The display LEDs will cycle blue in a Right to Left
direction.
When this routine is completed the unit will reconnect the most recent state (Source –
Zone selection or standby) The display LEDs will glow green indicating the switched
sources and zones.
The upper row of LEDs indicate input sources 1 to 8, left to right.
The lower row of LEDs indicate output zones 1 o 8 left to right.
Standby will be indicated by the upper left hand LED only, pulsing green/ blue.
6.2 Calibration
The system should be calibrated on first use or after any new devices (source or
zone equipment) are added or port allocations changed. Failure to correctly
calibrate a system may lead to interruption to audio and video at zones when
other zones are switched to a source that is already in use.
The system may be calibrated under RS232 control or manually by following
these steps.
1. Turn on all sources and zone equipment (receiver or TV). Ensure that zone
equipment (TV’s etc) are set to the correct HDMI input.
2. Press and hold operated the left hand press button switch on the front panel
for 3 seconds to commence calibration.
Leaf LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E manual
Page 16
Of 22
The 2 rows of LEDSs will “run” Left To Right alternatively Blue / Green
The calibration process may take up to a minute or two and when finished, the
LEDs will display (green) any previously selected sources and zones or revert
to standby (top left LED only, pulsing green/blue) if that was the previous state.
6.3 Creating input to output switched selections
While this would typically be performed by RS232 commands from your control system,
basic selections may also be performed manually by following these steps in
sequence.
Manually select output zone
Press the right hand press button switch sequentially until the LED in the lower row
corresponding to the desired output (zone) is blue, then release the switch and proceed
to the next step.
The lower row of LEDs indicates the output zones 1 to 8 left to right.
(Zone 2 is depicted in this picture)
Manually select the input source for that Zone
Press the left hand press button switch sequentially until the LED in the upper row
corresponding to the desired input (source) is blue, then release the switch.
The upper row of LEDs indicates the input sources 1 to 8 left to right.
(Source 1 is depicted in this picture)
Leaf LTHDMI88 / LTHDMI88E manual
Page 17
Of 22
After a few seconds the switched selection will be made, and these LEDS will
change to Green.
Repeat this process for other input (source) to output (zone) selections as required.
Notes:
1. If neither button is pressed for an extended time (approx 10sec), the
display will revert back to display (green) mode, displaying the existing
input/output connections.
2. If in the second step above the left hand press button switch is pressed
until no Blue LEDs are displayed in the upper row, the connection will be
cleared - i.e. the output will be disconnected from the input.
