Note:
• Values in bold or ( ) are factory default settings.
• The “Chromakey Setup” feature only works with Inputs 1 & 2. Input 1 is always the
background video and Input 2 is always the top layer with the key applied to it. The
part of Input 2 that is to be keyed out (removed) should, ideally, be a single color that
is not used anywhere else in the source signal. Typically this is accomplished by using
a special blue or green screen behind the recorded video subject. The Red, Green,
and Blue key values should be set with as small a range between the minimum and
maximum as possible while still maintaining a clean key to help avoid accidental removal
of normal video content. When Input 1 or 2 has no live source a warning message will
appear on the OSD.
• Consult the OSD (“Ethernet Steup” menu) to view the current IP settings if necessary.
An Ethernet re-link is required after every IP change.

EGE-HDMV-441SL
4×1 HDMI Seamless Quad Switcher
This will connect us to the unit we wish to control. Type “help” to list the available
commands. Type “IPCONFIG” to list all IP configurations. Type “IPMODE” to put the unit
into static IP/DHCP mode. For a full list of commands, see section 6.6.
Note:
• Commands will not be executed unless followed by a carriage return. Commands are
not case-sensitive.
• If the IP address is changed then the IP address required for WebGUI or Telnet access
will also change accordingly.
• Consult the OSD (“Ethernet Steup” menu) to view the current IP settings if necessary.
An Ethernet re-link is required after every IP change.

6.8 WebGUI Control
All primary functions of this unit are controllable via the built in WebGUI. This control is
presented across 8 separate tabs, including Image Adjust, Image Swap, Output Resolution,
Windows Setup, OSD/LOGO Settings, Window Convert, Chromakey Setup, and Ethernet.
Depending on the unit’s current operation mode, some tabs will be disabled. The individual
functions will be introduced in the following sections.
To access the WebGUI, open a web browser on a PC/Laptop that is connected to an
active network and type the unit’s IP address (available from the OSD menu) into the web
address entry bar.
Common Functions:
The top section of each tab is dedicated to presenting a standard selection of information
and basic controls including channel & output information, unit status, source, and window
selection, and favorite preset storing.
(1)Information-In: Displays the detected resolution for each of the 4 window channels.
(2)Information-Out: Displays the current output resolution and Window Mode.
(3)Status: Displays current input to channel mapping and provides a control to turn the
unit on/off (stand-by).
(4)Source: Provides controls to set the Window Mode (A~H, Fav1~4), set the input to
channel mapping, select the live audio source or to mute the output audio.
(5)FAV. Store/Factory: Provides controls to store the current window channel sizes and
positioning as a user Favorite (1~4). Click on the “Factory Default” button to reset the
entire unit to the factory defaults.
