Basic Inputs
This UltraMatrix switch can accommodate
most common audio / video wired signals.
Figure 1 X3 HDMI Connection
HDMI (6) – The UltraMatrix switcher can separate digital audio
imbedded in the HDMI connection and route it to both analog and
digital zone outputs. HDMI sources are connected to one of the
HDMI Input connectors.
FIGURE 1-X5
When the source is configured for 2-ch audio output the
UltraMatrix switcher will route the signal to both digital and analog
outputs. Multi-channel signals cannot be routed to analog outputs.
If both multi-channel and 2-ch signals are required the source must
be bi-wired and both connections configured as unique sources in
g! Configurator.

HDBaseT (4) – HDBaseT outputs combine HDMI, digital audio,
bi-directional serial, bi-directional IR, 10/100 Ethernet and ARP
signals along with voltage to power the HDRE onto a single
Cat5e/6/7 wire. The HDBaseT standard allows wiring lengths up to
100m (328’), although the use of ARP reduces the maximum wire
length by 15m (50’). Terminate wiring with T568B RJ45 connectors rated for the type of wiring you have run. Test all terminations
prior to connecting to the UltraMatrix switcher.

† Digital zone outputs configured to access analog inputs create a
mirrored digital and analog output situation. The g! configuration
software will manage the situation and you can refer to this chart to
make sure that you do not mis-connect an output.
When Digital outputs are configured to mirror Analog outputs the
output level becomes variable and matches the output level of the
analog outputs.
HDBaseT Distribution Connections
Ethernet (1) – Each zone output has a connection for 10/100
Ethernet. Connection to an Ethernet switch should be done with
appropriately rated cable and need only be made if you are going
to utilize Ethernet at the destination room for a Smart TV, game
station, media player or the like. Ethernet signal distribution over
HDBaseT requires use of the ELAN HDRE as the HDBaseT
receiver.

AV / SOURCE
IR In (15) – IR inputs are zone specific and are generally connected
to g! controller IR outputs with a 1/8” (3.5mm) mono mini to 1/8”
mono mini cable. Use this connection to operate monitors and
sources in the destination room. g! controllers allow many sources
to be connected to the same IR output, so as long as you do not
have duplicate devices in the destination room you will have no
problem operating several IR devices with one connection using an
IR connecting block like the Xantech 789-44 on the IR output of
the HDRE or HDRS.
IR output (14) – zone specific outputs provide access to IR signals
generated in the destination room. Unless you have connected an
IR receiver to the HDRE HDBaseT receiver to control a centrally
located g1 OSD interface it is unlikely you will utilize these connections. If you have an IR controlled device not related to the A/V
system it is possible that this connection could be used for that.

Figure 1 X18 Connecting an Ethernet jumper to the TCP/IP port
NOTE: The gMV1616 meets European (ERP) standby power
requirements. The ERP circuit monitors the TCP/IP and RS-232
ports for communication with the g! controller and after 10 minutes of no communication will place the chassis in a low power
consumption mode. In this mode the RS-232 connection is still
active, but the TCP/IP connection is not.
The only way to wake the unit up from low power consumption
mode is to send it a serial command over the RS-232 port or to
cycle main power. When using the TCP/IP port to control the
UltraMatrix chassis it is recommended that you do not turn the
power on to the UltraMatrix until the g! controller has also been
powered up.

System Design and Applications
System Design
The UltraMatrix family of switchers have a vast number of
features with their own potential benefits to the end user. The description of features and the design requirements of each feature
is covered in-depth in the UltraMatrix Designers Guide. Covered
in this manual are just the features that affect the wiring of an
UltraMatrix chassis.
Due to the vast number of possible UltraMatrix connections it
is strongly recommended that you do not attempt to wire the
chassis without a complete one-line document created by the system engineer. The following examples will provide a connection
reference for the many of the configurations you are likely to see.
HDMI Audio Decoupling – The sound from HDMI inputs may
be used as a source in audio only zones
HDMI & HDBaseT Mirrored Outputs – Advanced circuitry allows
the UltraMatrix switchers to output HDMI signals simultaneously on both the HDMI and HDBaseT connections of each zone.
Audio Return Program (ARP) – HDBaseT provides a digital
PCM audio return channel on each output. ELAN’s implementation of this channel is unique and referred to as Audio Return
Program (ARP). ARP utilizes separate inputs on the HDRE
receiver to provide an audio input that is independent of the
monitor. This input may be utilized for connection to any analog
or digital source, and the source connected may be routed to any
analog or digital output.
NOTE: When ARP is enabled (see HDRE instructions for enable/
disable help) the maximum wire length for the HDBaseT signal
is shortened to 260’ (80m) if using CAT5e. If using CAT6 or
CAT7 ARP does not affect wire length.
Lip Sync Delay – Each analog output has up to 170ms of delay
that can be assigned to all sources routed to the output and/or to
a specific source. Where you assign the delay depends on what
is causing the video delay. If only a source is causing the delay,
then applying the lip sync to the source only is appropriate. If the
display or a video processor in-line with the display is causing
the issue then delaying all sources routed to the zone would be
appropriate. When a source with delay is selected in a zone with
delay the delays are added and executed up to a maximum of
170ms. Lip sync is not available for multi channel digital outputs.
Analog Output Configuration – Analog zone outputs may be
configured for stereo, dual left channel, dual right channel, dual
mono, and stereo reverse.
Output Grouping – Zone outputs maybe grouped several ways;
• Sub Zone – Attaches one analog zone (sub) to another
(master). The subzone tracks the master zone source but retains independent volume adjustment.
• Zone Grouping – establishes a set of outputs that can be easily
grouped or un-grouped by the end-user. Outputs for outdoor
areas, entertaining areas, or master suite rooms are good candidates for zone grouping.
• Whole House Music (WHM) – Zones are selected through the
g! Configurator for inclusion or exclusion for WHM. The end
user simply selects “Settings” in their current zone, then presses
WHM On and all included zones are grouped to the active zones
source.
