1.0 Siting the Litile34 modular display
About Litile34™ Seamless Tiled Panel Wall Solution
The Litile34 modules are intended to operate in sheltered indoor environments. They
should not be used out of doors or where they could get wet. The modules remain visible
in high ambient light conditions; however it is best to avoid siting the display where
sunlight could fall directly on the front of the display screen.
Care should be taken to provide adequate ventilation or airconditioning for cooling.
This equipment is designed for safe operation at ambient temperatures between 5°C and
+25°C. For optimum performance, the ambient temperature should be maintained
between 10°C and 20°C.
The rear should not be obstructed. The modules should be a minimum of 1m from any
wall. Rear access is required for servicing purposes.
Refer to the Installation Instructions for details of how to move and install the modules.
This handbook contains important information on the installation, operation and
maintenance of the Litile34 Sunlight Viewable Seamless Tiled Panel Wall Solution range
which is intended for use in the recreational digital signage market and covers all
models.

3.0 Connecting Power To The Litile34 Display
It is important that your new display is installed and operated in accordance with the
instructions provided in this handbook. Failure to do so could result in poor product
performance and may invalidate your warranty.
The power cable should be connected to the power input socket on the back of the
display. There is a power switch on the back of each module for switching the units on
and off.
It is important to make sure that the controller is switched on BEFORE the modules to
ensure the correct boot-up sequence for the modules.
The Modules are powered by 220 to 240V, 50-60 Hz AC single phase mains. An earth
connection is essential (through the mains plug supplied). For installations requiring
more power than available from a single ring main, a three phase supply should be
prepared. Please contact Litemax for further detail if this is required. In-line delay
relays (default 5 seconds per Litile34 module) are recommended if powering up
automatically, to sequence the start of the modules and avoid power surges and tripping
of circuit breakers.
Remarks: Please be noted that you need another independent power source cable input
per each 4 Litile34 daisy chain loop.

4.0 Setting up the Video Wall Controller
The video wall controller consists of video scalers (currently TVOne C2-2200) and
Litemax MDU controllers. Each scaler and MDU pair can drive up to six Litile34 modules
in a number of different configurations. The modules are connected to the MDU
controllers via a CAT7 cable with 9-pin D-type connectors as supplied.
Four Video Wall Controllers (TVone Scaler and MDU Controller) sets. Each set will
drive up to 6 Litile34 modules

5.0 Displaying an image
A suitable image source should be plugged into the scaler unit input (either DVI, VGA or
composite) and if more than one scaler is being used (for larger displays), the same
image should be applied to each scaler via a suitable distribution amplifier (optional
extra). Audio should be directed through a separate Amplifier and speaker system (not
included).
Depending on the layout of the modules, (there are 5 options to choose from: 2x2, 3x2,
2x3, 1x6, 5x1), the output resolution on the scaler must be set to match this format (You
can refer to the TVone C2-2000 series video processor operation manual as supplied for
detail). Also, the MDU mode setting must be set accordingly.
The default scaler settings should automatically fit the whole input image onto the
output window. If however, this controller set is required to drive only a small section of
the overall screen, the zoom and pan settings can be adjusted to focus on only the
required section of the whole picture for the modules being driven by that particular
controller set.
Conversely, if the overall screen is smaller than the output resolution of the MDU, then
the shrink settings can be used to squeeze the picture onto the modules being driven.
For unusual shaped screens, bespoke content is recommended and output from a
computer as a part of a larger standard resolution format. Any areas of the output
image that are not covered by a module will not be visible.
Page 15
6.0 Settings for Scaler and MDU controller
The MDU unit has 6 nine-pin D-SUB type outputs on the rear of the unit.
The output from these connectors is fixed depending on the format of display being
driven. Below are details of which output drives which module in the various formats.
A number can be allocated to the outputs on the rear of the MDU unit as follows:
When viewing the display from the REAR, connect the MDU outputs to the modules as
follows (the convention is that output ‘1’ from the MDU is ALWAYS the bottom-right
module (when viewed from the rear of the screen) and then 2,3,4,5,6 follow, first along the
ROWS, and then for the next COLUMN above.

On the front of the MDU is a push button, which can scroll graphics mode through modes
0-7 and an on/off switch In order to set up the MDU and the TVOne C2-2200 for each of
the above module configurations, the following settings must be selected:
Page 16
For example: We choose Mode 5 (1x6) as the display style
1. Please adjust the TVone “Output res.” to [110] and you will see the following screen
2. Please make sure you connect the CAT7 D-Sub 9P cable to the Litile34 modules as
2. Zoom the image (H/V) as you want in the “Adjust windows” of the sub menu group.
Page 17
On the front of the TVOne C2-2200 box, there is an LCD screen and a ‘joystick’ to allow
various parameters to be adjusted. Follow the on screen menus to adjust the output
resolution setting.
12V DC power supplies are supplied with the units. These are required to power both the
MDU and the TVOne C2-2200.
If using a VGA input to the TVOne and more than one set of controllers is being used,
each TVOne box should be driven with the same VGA source via a multi-way VGA
distribution amplifier.
Setting the TVOne C2-2200:
Normally, the settings on the C2-2200 will result in the whole VGA image being displayed
on a 3x2 (mode 3) module display. In order to adjust this so that (for example) only the
left half or right half of the image is displayed (i.e. for use as half of a 4x3 module
display), the settings will need to be adjusted by using the buttons and multi-directional
switch on the front of the unit.
At any time during this procedure, pressing and holding in the push button in the centre
of the multi-directional switch will SAVE the settings to memory so that they remain
even after a power down cycle.
In order to adjust the settings to show the right or left half of the VGA source image, use
the push buttons and multi directional buttons to change the H/V zoom % in the zoom
menu to stretch the picture to twice it’s original width and then adjust the H/V zoom
pan% to pan across to the left or right half as required.

When you operate the “Joystick” down to the “MENU” direction, you will enter the “Sub
menu” group name setting screen. There will have the following menu group name:
#Sub menu… System: Controls global system parameters for the system unit.
When you operate the “Joystick” to the left direction, you may scroll down to select and
modify (press the push button in the centre of the multi-directional joystick switch) the
following menu group accordingly.
#Adjust Resolutions: Controls unit’s input/output resolution table. (hidden by default –
only visible when “Advanced menus” are switched as [ON])
WARNING: Adjust this function with care. DO NOT ADJUST THESE ITEMS UNLESS YOU’RE
CERTAIN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING! THE ONLY METHOD TO UNDO CERTAIN
CHANGES IS TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE.

7.0 Troubleshooting
A general guide to troubleshooting is to consider the system as separate elements, such as:
- Power distribution within the Litile34 modules
- Video Scaler / MDU controller settings
- Cabling (CAT 7 cables from MDU to modules)
- Computer system (display settings, operating system)
No Image
If the fluorescent lamps are not powered on it may still be possible to see a faint image on
the display. A complete lack of image is most likely to be caused by incorrect connection,
lack of power, failure to provide a signal or incorrect MDU / Scaler settings
Scramble Screen
This occurs when the MDU setting and the output resolution setting on the scaler do not
match. Refer to settings table to match the MDU and scaler settings required.
Power Cord
Due to the high power consumption needed for the system, please make sure to use the
original power cord as supplied to prevent the overheat issue.
Image Position
If the image does not appear in the correct position on the screen, the settings on the scaler
unit will need to be adjusted.
Image Appearance
If a single litile34 shows blank or coloured vertical lines, failed sections, flickering or flashing
display, this can indicate a damaged cable or LCD panel. Contact Customer Support at
Litemax for assistance.
LiTile34
In case of physical damage to the Litile34 requiring replacement, please contact
customer support at Litemax.
