Installation Guide

Introduction

Introduction 2

BeoLab Transmitter 1 is a stand-alone box, that enables existing music systems and TVs to connect wirelessly - within one room - to any Bang &

Olufsen wireless speaker and BeoLab Receiver 1.

BeoLab Transmitter 1 works in the wireless 5 GHz U-NII band frequency spectrum. It is compliant with and will only work with all new Bang &

Olufsen WiSA approved speakers and speakers connected to the BeoLab Receiver 1.

The WiSA technology offers multi-channel wireless sound performance for full surround sound setup. The benefits for the Bang & Olufsen customer are:

- Eliminates cable clutter.

- Offers complete flexibility when decorating your room.

- Is an easy add-on to an existing wired setup.

- Delivers high-quality wireless surround sound.

- Offers easy 3 rd

party integration: mix and match your favourite audio and video components.

The BeoLab Transmitter 1 has four RJ45 inputs with Power Link / Line-in connection which have both a left and right sound channel. This means you can connect as much as 8 sound channels as input of which one can be a subwoofer in the room. In addition there is an optical stereo

TOSLINK

TM

input (S/P-DIF) and two RCA (Line-in) for connection stereo sound channels of an audio system.

Despite this the wireless technology used makes it possible to configure up to 11 wireless speakers to the sound channels as desired. One scenario may be a 7.4 setup.

One switch is used to shift between a Bang & Olufsen Power Link signal in and a line-in signal from a 3 rd

party product (B&O INPUT YES/NO).

Another switch is used for providing either a pure stereo output in two sound channels only (SUB 2.1 set to OFF) or providing the two stereo sound channels plus a third sound channel provided by the built in bass management function for the configuration of a wireless subwoofer (SUB 2.1 set to ON).

Active sources are prioritised in the following order: 1) POWER LINK; 2) TOSLINK; 3) Line-in (via RCA connectors or RJ45 connector).

With the BeoLab Transmitter 1 comes a cable cover for optimised cable management. The BeoLab Transmitter 1 is clicked onto the cable cover and can be mounted on the wall with the cables directed either up/down or sideways in any direction that is convenient for an elegant installation. The cable cover becomes an inherent part of the BeoLab Transmitter 1 and lets the solution stand out as one entity.

In a stereo setup, the speakers and the subwoofer must be connected wirelessly.

In a surround sound setup, you can combine wired and wireless speakers as you like.

When the BeoLab 19 has wireless connection the LP FILTER switch is set to OFF. This ensures that the BeoLab 19 emits the frequency pattern sent to the speaker and also makes the noise pattern audible when configuring the speaker setup.

Mounting 5

Demount from wall mounting

The BeoLab Transmitter 1 is demounted from the cable cover by releasing the two snap-locks , followed by moving the transmitter away from the cable cover .

Placement of the Beolab Transmitter 1 6

Placement of BeoLab Transmitter 1

The BeoLab Transmitter 1 has an omnidirectional transmission characteristic, although this can not be an ideal sphere.

The transmitter and the receivers of the loudspeakers must have line-ofsight.

The transmitter and the speakers are placed inside an area that is recommended to have the maximum measurements of 9 × 9 m / 30 ×

30 ft.

The distance between the BeoLab

Transmitter 1 and any receiver must not exceed 12 m / 40 ft.

Ideally there must be placed no objects between the BeoLab

Transmitter 1 and the speakers - especially not objects consisting of material that will block or totally reflect the wireless signals.

maximum 12 m / 40 ft

Setting listening distance to speakers

In most TVs the listening distance to each speaker can be set to obtain true-time listening from all speakers.

If the speaker setup consists of a mixture of wired and wireless connected speakers, the distance to the wireless speakers must be added

6 ms (milliseconds) matching 2 m /

6.7 ft to the actual distance between the listening position and each speaker connected wirelessly due to the sound delay handling.

Alternatively the time or distance can be subtracted from the wired speaker setup.

party product remote control

This function is made available with the SW ver. 1.1 and newer.

The RVC3000 IR receiver makes it possible to connect 3 rd

party TVs from Samsung, LG and Sony to the BeoLab Transmitter 1, and use the remote control of the TV to control the volume level. A list of compatible TVs can be seen on BeoWise.

By the IR-eye it becomes possible to control volume up and down and also to mute and un-mute the setup.

When returning from muted state, the volume level will be as before muting - however never higher than 2/3 of the maximum volume.

When the IR-eye is removed from the BeoLab Transmitter 1 the BeoLab Transmitter 1 must be powered Off and then On as it will first then behave as having no IR-eye connected.

This function is made available with the SW ver. 1.1 and newer.

The BeoLab Transmitter 1 and wireless speakers are per default set to enter a standby state a while after not being actively used. When being powered on again there is a delay before sound is heard from the speakers.

If desired it is possible to set the BeoLab Transmitter 1 to “Always On” by which the delay is reduced to about 2 s when it is desired to hear sound from the speakers almost instantly.

Always On can be set to true or false as described in the section about Line-in setting and log files, see page 26 .

A USB memory stick is needed having a file in the root with the name: WPLSETUP.TXT and this file shall contain the command line text:

ALWAYS ON:TRUE

- Disconnect the BeoLab Transmitter 1 from mains for at least 60 s.

- Insert the USB memory stick into the USB A socket

- Reconnect the BeoLab Transmitter 1 to mains

The BeoLab Transmitter 1 restarts indicated by the product status LED being solid red

The USB memory stick must remain in the BeoLab Transmitter 1 for 10 s before being removed again.

- Disconnect the BeoLab Transmitter 1 from mains for at least 60 s.

- Remove the USB memory stick

- Reconnect the BeoLab Transmitter 1 to mains

Note: It is recommended not to set ALWAYS ON:TRUE in countries having 5 or fewer 5 GHz channels; see page 27

Line-in setting and log files 26

Line-in setting and log files

Via USB memory stick

Default values and ranges

The line-in settings can be changed on BeoLab Transmitter 1 by the content of a file called WPLSETUP.TXT placed on a USB memory stick.

At the same time log files can be dumped to the USB memory stick.

[File formats supported are: FAT 16, FAT32 and filenames only consisting of 8.3 characters].

The WPLSETUP.TXT file and the format for the settings can be obtained as follows:

- Insert an empty USB memory stick into the USB A connector.

The BeoLab Transmitter 1 will then create a file on the USB memory stick with the file name WPL_DUMP.TXT.

- Move the USB memory stick to a PC and using a simple text editor, the setting values can be changed according to the source product used with the BeoLab Transmitter 1; see table below.

- Change the filename to WPLSETUP.TXT.

All lines starting with ‘;’ (semicolon) are regarded as comment lines.

- Disconnect the BeoLab Transmitter 1 from the mains for at least 60 s.

- Insert the USB memory stick into the USB A connector. (Must remain in the USB A socket for at least 60 s to ensure all logging dumped after restart).

- Connect the BeoLab Transmitter 1 to the mains. Restart is indicated by the product status LED being solid red

- The BeoLab Transmitter 1 discovers the WPLSETUP.TXT file, and the settings for line-in are set in the BeoLab Transmitter 1.

A file named WPL_DUMP.TXT will be created on the USB memory stick; or alternatively overwrite the existing file of the same name.

If a line with the text: ERROR QUEUE PLEASE is found in the WPLSETUP.TXT file, the error log will be dumped in a file named WPLERROR.TXT when the USB memory stick is inserted into the USB A connector.

If a line with the text: STORE DFS LOG is found in the WPLSETUP.TXT file, a log file consisting of 1000 entries (in a circle buffer) separated by semicolon is dumped to the USB memory stick. Entries are changes in the setup of the BeoLab Transmitter 1.

All the above files are or must be located in the root folder of the USB memory stick.

Due to national regulations channels and channel patterns can not be chosen manually.

The transmitter is certified to use only specific channels in each country.

The automatic channel selection mechanism may in certain cases take more than 1 minute before a channel is allocated for sound transmission.

Note: It is recommended not to set ALWAYS ON:TRUE in countries having 5 or fewer 5 GHz channels; see page 25

.

Distance between 5 GHz transmitters 28

Distance between 5 GHz transmitters

The number of 5 GHz transmitter systems in the near surroundings has impact on the stability as each transmitter occupies bandwidth and therefore in dense signal areas influence each other. To obtain the most stable wireless transmission, Bang & Olufsen has made a number of recommendations for the setup of transmitter systems.

A Bang & Olufsen stereo system setup or surround sound system setup is regarded as one transmission system and consists of a BeoLab Transmitter 1 or a TV with internal WPL transmitter and all associated speakers. Similarly a 5 GHz Access Point and all associated computers is regarded a transmission system.

- The distance between a 5 GHz transmitter and a speaker must be no more than 12 metres/

40 ft; see

page 6 .

- The stereo/surround sound setup must be within an area of maximum 9 × 9 metres/ 30 ×

30 ft; see

page 6 .

- Transmitters and speakers must not be placed closer to other wireless units than 1 meter/

3.3 ft.

- There must be no more than three transmission systems within an area called the 6 metres/

20 ft zone, see illustration A. *

- In case of more Bang & Olufsen BeoLab transmitter systems in the same room, it is recommended to power only one at the time and wait at least

1 minute before powering up additional units.

* In countries with less than 6 channels available, see

page 27 , it is recommended to have only 1 additional transmitter system within the 6 metres

zone.

Site survey (Wi-Spy) 29

Site survey (Wi-Spy)

Setting up Wi-Spy

Usually wireless speaker connections should not lead to problems. The BeoLab Transmitter 1 is able to find unused channels in the 5 GHz band, and makes a map of unused channels in case the present channel in use becomes occupied by another transmission system. In such case moving to an alternative channel happens seamlessly.

Despite this it is recommended to make a site survey in dense residential areas as well as enterprise areas, in countries with few channels (see

page 27

), in areas known for wireless problems and if many 5 GHz transmission systems nearby.

In a repair situation a site survey can also reveal if problems are related to lack of channels in the 5 GHz transmission system.

The Wi-Spy DBx + Chanalyzer Pro can be used to visualize which 5 GHz channels are used and unused.

Note: The free-ware program inSIDDer can show all channels, and identify WLAN traffic, whereas it is not able to see radio traffic from other transmission systems using the 5 GHz band (see

page 27

).

From the Wi-Spy toolbar do the following (see example of Wi-Spy recording on the next page):

- Click on the tool to have the Display selected networks (WLANs) enabled; by this the WLAN can be seen in the recordings.

- Click on the tool to have Colouring by Density enabled.

- Set at check mark (√) next to SSID, in the lower half of the display.

The total view will be as shown on the next page.

A recording is saved in the following way:

- State known wireless problems in the area, if any!

Observations for decision on wired/wireless

Make a Wi-Spy recording in the area where Wireless Power Link (WPL) is intended to be installed. Save the recording.

Compare the channel pattern for the country with the recording.

The possibilities for utilizing WPL are of course best when there are unused (free) channels.

If the recording seems to indicate that most/all channels are used, it might still be possible to utilize WPL, if the signal strength in some channels are below - 80 dBm. The channels can not be manually selected for the BeoLab Transmitter 1.

Make a wireless test setup, and in case it behaves stable, make the installation permanent.

In case the test setup is unstable, or in case there are no unused channels, a wired solution is then the solution to a sound experience!
