HDMI Scaler & Audio Extractor
1. Introduction
1.1 General
The SC-HDMI-2A can scale a DVI or HDMI signal up or down to
various resolutions. It can embed external analog or digital audio
sources in to the output HDMI stream, and conversely can
extract audio from HDMI source and output it in both analog (L/R
line level) and digital (S/PDIF TOSLINK) formats.
The SC-HDMI-2A has the ability to output a wide range of
resolutions and refresh rates regardless of the input timing and
resolution. The output resolution can be set to match the native
resolution of the display or manually specified by the user. The
unit is also able to perform a real-time horizontal axis flip
(mirroring) which makes it ideal for teleprompting applications.
The SC-HDMI-2A features an OSD menu for configuration,
picture setup, system information and other advanced options.

3.2 Obtaining an image on the screen
As shipped from the factory or after a factory default reset, the
unit output resolution setting should be “NATIVE”. This means
that upon power-up the device will read the EDID of your display
and output a compatible resolution resulting in a picture.
However, if the output setting is not at “NATIVE”, or if the unit
cannot ascertain the EDID of the display, then you may not get a
picture. Since most settings are done by means of an on-screen
display (OSD), it is necessary to get an image on the display first.
For this purpose, you can use one of two preset button
combinations to set a resolution that your display supports. Two
options are available (depending on the display device):
1. If the display is HDTV compatible (with an HDMI™
connection), then a resolution of 480p should result in an
image.
2. If the display is PC compatible (DVI), then XGA (1024x768)
should result an image.
Once you have an image, you can call up the OSD menu to
make further changes if necessary.
At any time, pressing the UP ARROW  and MENU button
together will change the output resolution to 1024x768 @ 60 Hz.
Pressing the MENU and DOWN ARROW  together will change
the output resolution to 480P @ 60 Hz.
3.3 Setting the output resolution
Press the MENU button to open the OSD and use the arrow
buttons () to select the OUTPUT option. Press the MENU
button.
Use arrows to scroll through the available resolutions listed. See
Section 5.1 below for a list of all available resolutions.

3.4 Extracting Audio
The SC-HDMI-2A can extract audio from the HDMI™ source
input and simultaneously output to analog and digital S/PDIF
audio out.
Note that the extracted HDMI™ audio may lead the video as it
appears on the display by several milliseconds. This is due to
added latency due to processing of video that occurs in the
display. The SC-HDMI-2A can correct for this with a built-in audio
delay of 40ms, 110ms, or 150ms. If a different delay time is
needed then we recommend using the Hall Research Universal
Audio Delay Processor (AD-340) which is capable of delaying
digital or analog audio for any amount of time up to 510ms.
3.5 Embedding Audio
The SC-HDMI-2A can embed audio into the HDMI™ output
stream. To embed audio you must pull up the OSD menu,
navigate to the AUDIO menu item, and change the source to
wherever you want audio to come from: HDMI, L/R (analog
stereo), or OPTICAL (digital S/PDIF).
Note that embedding audio does require a display. If no display is
connected then the HDMI™ source will not output a stream.
3.6 Factory Defaults
There are two ways to reset the unit back to its factory default
configuration.
1. If you are able to access the OSD menu you can select
the option from the main menu.
2. You can also set the device back to factory defaults by
pressing and holding the MENU button while connecting
the power supply.

4. Troubleshooting
There are no field serviceable parts or circuits in the device. If
you think the device is malfunctioning (or you have no picture
output), please try to use the methods described in Section 3.2 to
obtain a picture first. If that does not work, try resetting back to
the Factory Defaults as described in 3.6.
4.1 Contacting Hall Research
If you determine that your device is malfunctioning, do not
attempt to repair the unit instead, contact Hall Research
Technical Support at 714-641-6607.
Before you do, make a record of the history of the problem.
We will be able to provide more efficient and accurate
assistance if you have a complete description.
4.2 Shipping and Packaging
If you need to transport or ship your unit:

Package it carefully. We recommend that you use the
original container.

Before you ship the units back to Hall Research for repair or
return, contact us to get a Return Authorization (RMA)
number.
