OPERATION NOTES
READ THESE NOTES BEFORE INSTALLING OR
OPERATING THE GEFENPRO 10X4 DVI DUAL LINK MATRIX
•
The 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix does not support HDCP content.
•
Make sure that a DVI monitor is powered and connected to one of the DVI
outputs on the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix before applying power. By default,
the Local EDID is read from the connected monitor and is copied to all 10
DVI inputs once the Matrix has been turned on. If a monitor is not detected
by the Matrix at power-on, a default (internal) EDID of 640x480 will be used.
This functionality can be disabled using the Secure Local EDID function
through IP control. See page 36 for more information.
•
There is no internal scaling in the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix. Each monitor
attached to the Matrix must be able to display the resolutions output by the
source device(s). For maximum compatibility it is recommended that only
one common resolution be used by each source device.
•
Advanced EDID features and IP configuration features are accessible
through the RS-232 serial command set.
•
Routing and EDID features can be accessed using a Web browser using the
built-in IP control.
•
IMPORTANT: If the unit is installed in a closed or multi-rack assembly, do
not block the ventilation holes of the enclosure.

CONNECTING AND OPERATING
THE 10X4 DVI DUAL LINK MATRIX
Front Panel Controls
The GefenPRO 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix uses an LED display that shows
the current routing status and is used to control the Matrix. When the unit is
powered, four (4) LEDs will indicate the current routing status:
In the example above, all DVI sources have been routed to Output 1.
The top row of ten (10) buttons correspond to each input on the Matrix. The four
buttons on the left correspond to each of the outputs on the Matrix (see pages 4
and 5).
The GefenPRO 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix can route a source to one monitor at
a time or a source to multiple monitors at once. Routing a source to a monitor is
a two-step process: The first step is to select the monitor (1-4) to which the source

IR REMOTE CONFIGURATION
How to Resolve IR Code Conflicts
In the event that IR commands from other remote controls interfere with the
supplied IR Remote Control unit, changing the IR channel on the IR Remote
Control unit will fix the problem. The IR Remote Control unit has a bank of DIP
switches used for setting the IR channel.
The DIP switch bank is located underneath the battery cover.

It is important that the IR channel on the Remote Control unit, matches the IR
channel set on the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix. For example, if both DIP switches
on the IR Remote Control unit are set to IR channel 0 (both DIP switches down),
then the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix must also be set to IR channel 0. See page
30 on how to change the IR channel on the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix.

EDID MANAGEMENT FEATURE
EDID. What is it and what is it used for?
Under normal circumstances, a source device (digital and analog) will require
information about a connected device/display to assess what resolutions
and features are available. The source can then tailor its output to send
only resolutions and features that are compatible with the attached device/
display. This information is called EDID (Extended Display Information Data)
and a source device can only accept and read one EDID from a connected
device/display. Likewise, the source an only output one resolution for use by a
connected device/display.
Why is EDID so important with the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix?
The 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix is a complex piece of technology that replicates
and switches between multiple inputs and outputs. Each connected source
device will require one EDID to read. EDID management is carefully handled by
the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix to provide a single EDID for each source to read.
What options do I have to manage the EDID in the 10x4 DVI Dual Link
Matrix?
First, it is important to note that each source device can only output one video/
audio signal type. This includes resolutions and timings. When multiple devices/
displays are used, such as with the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix, it is important to
use devices/displays that have similar or compatible resolutions and features.
This will ensure that the single video/audio signal produced by the source device
is accepted by all of the connected output devices/displays.
The user has the option, through utilization of the RS-232 serial interface, to
choose how the unit will manage the EDID from multiple DVI devices/displays.
Therefore the user has some control over the resolutions and features that the
source devices will output. The 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix has a LOCAL EDID
management mode that will control how the EDID information is handled.
How do I change EDID modes in the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix?
EDID modes and IP configuration is managed via the RS-232 serial
communications port. See page 18 for more information on the RS-232 serial
communication features.
17
RS-232 SERIAL CONTROL
What features are available via the RS-232 serial communications port?
The 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix Switcher can accept commands through the RS232 serial communications port located on the rear panel. The current RS-232
control features are:
•
Switching/routing of inputs to outputs without the IR remote control.
•
Managing the EDID bank and EDID that is loaded into the LOCAL EDID.
•
Upload new EDID’s to the EDID bank or directly to the LOCAL EDID
location.
•
Manage IP settings.
How do I use these features?
These features were initially intended for utilization by custom installers in
automated setups. However, these features can be tested and used by using any
Windows PC with a terminal program.
What pins are used for communication with the 10x4 DVI Dual Link Matrix
Switcher?
Only pins 2 (Receive), 3 (Transmit), and 5 (Ground) are used for communication.
A null-modem adapter should not be used with this product.
