Support for Kramer Protocol 3000
VS-62H - Overview
You can control the VS-62H using the front panel buttons, or remotely via:

RS-232 serial commands transmitted by a PC, touch screen system or other
serial controller
3.1

The Kramer RC-IR3 infrared, remote control transmitter

A PC connected via a LAN to the Ethernet port on the VS-62H

An optional, external, remote IR receiver (see Section 3.1)
Using the IR Transmitter
You can use the RC-IR3 IR transmitter to control the machine via the built-in IR
receiver on the front panel or, instead, via an optional external IR receiver (for
example, P/N C-A35M/IRR-50). The external IR receiver can be located up to 15m
away from the machine. This distance can be extended to up to 60m when used
with three extension cables (for example, P/N C-A35M/A35F-50).
Before using the external IR receiver, be sure to arrange for your Kramer dealer to
insert the internal IR connection cable (for example, P/N: 505-70434010-S) with
the 3.5mm connector that fits into the REMOTE IR opening on the rear panel.
Connect the external IR receiver to the REMOTE IR 3.5mm connector.

Principles of Operation
This section describes the operating theory of the VS-62H and includes:
7.1

Automatic signal detection (see Section 7.1)

Input switching modes (see Section 7.2)

EDID operation (see Section 7.3)
Automatic Signal Detection
The VS-62H can automatically detect the presence of a video signal on an input
based on the presence of a video sync or clock signal.
7.2
Input Switching Modes
7.2.1
Manual Mode
In Manual switching mode, routing is performed according to the front panel button
selection or according to the remote command selection.
7.2.2
Automatic Mode
Automatic switching can be performed in either of the following ways:

Input priority. Upon detection of an active input, the input with the highest
priority is automatically selected. Input priority is from the lowest input
number (1) to the highest (6)

Last Connected. The device automatically selects the most recently
connected input. Should this source become inactive, the device
automatically switches to the last connected input that was active. When
turning the device on and more than one input is active, the input with the
highest priority is selected
If a manual selection is made when the device is in Automatic mode, the device
enters Manual Override mode. The manually selected input remains selected as
long as it is active. When a manually selected input becomes inactive, the device
returns to Automatic mode.
VS-62H - Principles of Operation
15
7.3
EDID Operation
The VS-62H has a default EDID (see Section 14) stored on all inputs. This EDID
can be exchanged for either:

A custom EDID which is uploaded to one or more inputs using Protocol 3000
commands (see Section 15.2)
–OR–

The EDID of a display device connected to an output by using either the
front panel buttons (see Section 8.2), a Protocol 3000 command, or the Web
pages
The EDID is non-volatile and the last valid EDID is used when the device is
powered up.
7.4
Step-in Functionality
The VS-62H can function as a step-in switcher when connected to a suitable
HDMI transmitter, (for example, the SID-X3N), using the correct HDMI cable with
HEC support.
Use the Web pages (see Section 10.2.2) to assign remote device button actions.
The default button actions are shown in the following table. Up to three buttons
can be active at the same time.

Controlling a Remote Transmitter
Compatible remote transmitters, (for example, the SID-X3N) that are connected to
the VS-62H can be controlled using the Web pages, (see Section 10.2, Figure 14).
Figure 15: The Remote Device Control Window
The VS-62H allows you to program the general purpose buttons on remote
modules. The table shows the functionality defined for each button. The options
are:

HDMI, DP, DVI, PC—selects one of the inputs

Echo—allows a connected controller to be programmed to perform a variety
of tasked triggered by the user buttons, such as, room control, (lights,
screen, and so on)

Out 1—step-in current input to output 1

Out 2—step-in current input to output 2
Note: These settings are per input and remain valid even if the remote SID-X3N is
exchanged for another SID-X3N.
Up to three of the Echo, Out 1 and Out 2 buttons can be active at the same time.

VS-62H - Protocol 3000
15.1.3
Command Terms
Command
A sequence of ASCII letters ('A'-'Z', 'a'-'z' and '-').
Command and parameters must be separated by at least one space.
Parameters
A sequence of alphanumeric ASCII characters ('0'-'9','A'-'Z','a'-'z' and some special
characters for specific commands). Parameters are separated by commas.
Message string
Every command entered as part of a message string begins with a message
starting character and ends with a message closing character.
Note: A string can contain more than one command. Commands are separated by
a pipe ( '|' ) character.
Message starting character
'#' – For host command/query
'~' – For device response
Device address (Optional, for K-NET)
K-NET Device ID followed by '@'
Query sign
'?' follows some commands to define a query request.
Message closing character
CR – For host messages; carriage return (ASCII 13)
CRLF – For device messages; carriage return (ASCII 13) + line-feed (ASCII 10)
Command chain separator character
When a message string contains more than one command, a pipe ( '|' ) character
separates each command.
Spaces between parameters or command terms are ignored.
VS-62H - Protocol 3000
41
15.1.4
Entering Commands
You can directly enter all commands using a terminal with ASCII communications
software, such as HyperTerminal, Hercules, etc. Connect the terminal to the serial
or Ethernet port on the Kramer device. To enter CR press the Enter key.
( LF is also sent but is ignored by command parser).
For commands sent from some non-Kramer controllers, (for example, Crestron)
some characters require special coding (such as, /X##). Refer to the controller
manual.
15.1.5
Command Forms
Some commands have short name syntax in addition to long name syntax to allow
faster typing. The response is always in long syntax.
15.1.6
Chaining Commands
Multiple commands can be chained in the same string. Each command is
delimited by a pipe character (“|”). When chaining commands, enter the message
starting character and the message closing character only once, at the
beginning of the string and at the end.
Commands in the string do not execute until the closing character is entered. A
separate response is sent for every command in the chain.
15.1.7
Maximum String Length
64 characters
