 Version 2.02.05 – Technical notes
New Features

Matrix routers: Vertige™ can now control one or more matrix routers and allows dynamic routing of the video
signals to the LiveCore™ devices inputs according to your screens content.
The Vertige™ provides a set of matrix descriptors used to control most popular matrix routers. These descriptors
are small documents describing the device capabilities and its external communication protocol. If your device is
not in this default set, please contact Analog Way Technical: based on your matrix router reference and its
manual, we might be able to generate a descriptor that you could then import into your Vertige™.
To display the Matrix Library page, press the Vertige™ SETTINGS button in the upper-right corner then select the
Matrix Library tab. The upper area displays all the matrix descriptors currently available in your Vertige™:
You can then use the left menu options to display any matrix descriptor capabilities, import a matrix descriptor
from a USB key or export an existing matrix descriptor to a USB key.
If your setup includes one or more upstream matrix routers, you need to:
-
Create and configure the matrix routers properly (type, LAN settings …)
-
Map the matrix outputs to the LiveCore™ devices inputs
-
Create and configure at least one matrix stream for each matrix input signal you want to use
To ensure clean switching between matrix streams, Vertige™ automatically ‘freezes’ the corresponding input on
the LiveCore™ devices during the routing. Note that the routing time may vary depending on a range of factors
(type of the matrix, type of the signal, HDCP …). This routing time can be configured globally for a matrix or finely
tuned for each matrix stream if necessary.
Important: If you want to preserve the ability to make seamless transitions while using an upstream matrix, then
the total number of different matrix streams displayed on Preview AND Program should not exceed the total
number of physical links between the matrix and the LiveCore™ device.

FIRMWARE RELEASE NOTE
Important: In any situation, the total number of different matrix streams displayed on Preview OR Program
should not exceed the total number of physical links between the matrix and the LiveCore™ device.
To display the Matrix configuration page, select the Matrix tab in the top bar.
Creating a new matrix router: Select the CREATE option in the left menu and then enter the name of the matrix
router. In the Type field, select the matrix descriptor from the matrix library corresponding to the matrix you want
to create. Select the connection protocol then configure the LAN settings accordingly. When ready, press the
Create button.
Configuring the average matrix routing time: In the left menu, select the EDIT option then select the matrix
router for which you want to configure the average routing time. Adjust the value (in milliseconds) and press the
Apply button to save your changes.
Configuring the LAN settings: In the left menu, select the NETWORK option then select the matrix router for
which you want to configure the LAN settings. Select the connection protocol then configure the LAN settings
accordingly. When ready, press the Apply button.
Mapping matrix outputs to the assembly inputs: To add a new link, select the MAP option in the left menu then
select the matrix router for which you want to configure the outputs mapping. Select the desired assembly, input
and plug then select the matrix output physically linked to this plug. If the selected assembly has been configured
to operate in associative modularity, make sure to select all the matrix outputs physically connected to the same
input on all the devices. When ready, press the Add button.

Configuring the Matrix streams: In the Assembly page, select the STREAMS / MATRIX option then select the
assembly for which you want to configure the Matrix streams: To add a new Matrix stream, enter the name of this
stream then select the desired matrix router in the list. Select one of the inputs available then choose the
appropriate signal type. If the signal is HDCP-protected, make sure to check the HDCP box (this will force HDCP
protection on the LiveCore™ device input as long as the signal is routed to this input). If the estimated routing
time needs to be specifically adjusted for this stream, check the Custom Routing Time box and enter a value (in
msec). When ready, press the Add button. To edit existing Matrix stream properties, select a stream in the list and
adjust the desired properties. When done, press the Apply button to save your changes.


Confidence screens: Vertige™ now supports LiveCore™ Confidence Screens.
Creating a Confidence Screen: In the Screen page, select the CREATE option then enter the name of the
Confidence Screen. Adjust the horizontal and vertical size then select the screen format (default is HDTV 1080p).
Check the Confidence box and press the Create button.
Note: You can also create Confidence Screens using the Assembly Wizard.
Select the Confidence page to manage Confidence screens:
Configuring the layout and widget(s) source: Select the LAYOUT option in the left menu then select the
Confidence screen for which you want to configure the current layout. Select the predefined layout you want to
apply. When done, select the content you would like to display inside each widget.

Configuring the widgets margin and background color: Select the MISC option in the left menu then select the
Confidence screen you want to configure. Select then margin between each widget (gap in pixel) then adjust the
color of the background if necessary (Red, Green and Blue). Note: This will affect all Confidence Screens using the
same assembly.
Saving a Confidence preset to memory: Select the SAVE option in the left menu then select the Confidence
screen for which you want to save the current configuration to memory (16 memory slots available). Select the
slot where the current configuration will be saved and optionally enter a description. When ready, press the Save
button.
Loading a Confidence preset from memory: Select the LOAD option in the left menu then select the Confidence
screen for which you want to load a preset from memory. Select one of the slots to automatically recall the
corresponding preset from memory and update the Confidence screen
Renaming a Confidence preset: Select the LOAD option in the left menu then select one of the memory slots to
automatically recall the corresponding Confidence preset from memory. Enter a description for this Confidence
preset then press the Apply button.
