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 cater 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
can only output one resolution for using by a connected device/display.
Why does EDID so important with the HDMI Matrix?
The Matrix is 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 HDMI Matrix to provide a single EDID for each source to read.
What options do I have to manage the EDID in the HDMI Matrix?
First, it is important to know that each source device can only output one video/audio signal. It
includes resolutions and timings. When multiple devices/displays are used, such as with the HDMI
Matrix, it is important to use devices/displays that have similar or compatible resolutions/features.
This will ensure that the single video/audio signal produced by the source device is accepted by
the entire connected output devices/displays. The user has the option to choose how the unit will
manage the EDID from multiple HDMI devices/displays through the EDID management window.
Therefore the user has some control over the resolutions/features that the source devices will output.
The HDMI Matrix for has a multiple EDID management modes that will control how the EDID
information from multiple devices/displays are combined, ignored, and routed.
5.2 Rear Panel
 IR Channel
IR EXT: if the panel sensor is obstructed or the unit is installed in a closed area out of
infrared line of sight, the IR RX receiver included can be inserted into the IR EXT
port at the rear to extend the IR sensor range and enable local control of the
IR IN/OUT: Super IR control system interface. For further details, please refer to the Super IR
system control introduction.
Connect to the VGA or CV input source devices such as a DVD player, Set-top Box or PC with
VGA cable or RCA coaxial cable. Each VGA or CV input is accompanied with a 3.5mm stereo
audio input.
TCP/IP: This port is the link for TCP/IP controls; connect to an active Ethernet link with an
RJ45 terminated cable.
RS-232: Connect to a PC or control system with D-Sub 9-pin cable for the transmission of
RS-232 commands.
The HDMI OUTPUT connects to TVs equipped HDMI.
Connect to the HDMI input source devices such as a DVD player or a Set-top Box with HDMI
Plug the 12V/2.5A DC power supply into the DC12V power in.
6. Remote Control
Press this button to power on or set it to stand by mode.
Output selection: Letters correspond with the outputs on the matrix.
Input selection. Numbers correspond with the inputs on the matrix.
Sources input selection. Press the button to select source input.
For example: Press input 1>VGA, the input 1 will be selecting the VGA
Video input.
Picture adjusts. Press the button to adjust the output picture.
For example: Press output 1>SCALER, the output 1 video will be the
scaler adjust.
Note: The AUTO ADJUST button only work on VGA input.
7. IR Control System
At Matrix end: Insert the 3.5mm jacks of the IR TX Emitters included with the unit into the IR
TX Emitter ports at the rear of the matrix according to input. The IR signal is added to the HDMI of
the input device so, for example, if the user is watching Blue-ray on input 1, the IR signal will be
directed through the IR TX1 socket to control the device.
As each IR TX port is allocated to an individual HDMI input port, if the user is unable to
establish IR control of the device, care should be taken to check firstly, that the IR emitter and
HDMI input ports match (Input 1-TX1, Input2-TX2 etc.) with plugs secured in correct ports.
Secondly, that the IR TX emitter sensors are firmly attached directly to the front of inputs and
covering infrared sensor windows of the source devices.
Some later adjustment may be needed to the location of the sensor to achieve the best
performance results - sometimes moving the sensor to different areas on the source can improve IR
NOTE: Infrared receiving areas of devices can be located by shining a flashlight onto the front
of the device – the sensor should be able to be seen through the plastic as a small, round object
inside. Insert 3.5mm jacks of IR RX receivers into RX ports, making sure the receivers
themselves are placed in clear view to receive an infrared signal from the remote handset used
to control the display outputs.
