IMPORTANT OPERATING NOTES
READ THESE NOTES BEFORE INSTALLING OR OPERATING
THE 32X32 MODULAR MATRIX
•
There is no internal scaling in the 32x32 Modular Matrix. All of the attached monitors
must be able to display the output resolutions of the source devices. For maximum
compatibility it is recommended that only one compatible/common resolution be used
by all of the source devices.
•
Routing features can be accessed using the serial control interface or via Telnet.
See page 37 - 74 for more information.
•
The 32x32 Modular Matrix has several The Gefen 32x32 Modular Matrix provides
several different pre-configured packages to suit the needs of your application. This
User Manual covers all available configurations. See page 3 for information on
identifying the type of 32x32 Modular Matrix that was purchased.
IMPORTANT: If the unit is installed in a closed or multi-rack
assembly, do not block the ventilation holes of the enclosure.
INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of the 32x32 Modular Matrix. Your complete satisfaction
is very important to us.
GefenPRO
In the realm of video distribution, certain features are invaluable in a commercial or
broadcast environment. Accommodations such as a build-in power supply and flat black
rack-mount enclosures set GefenPRO apart from our traditional products. Complex
distribution units allow for professional DVI, 3G-SDI, and HDMI signals to be routed and
converted easily and seamlessly, while being backed up by a renowned and dependable
technical support team. Gefen invites you to explore the GefenPRO product line and hopes
that you find the solution that fits your needs.
The Gefen 32x32 Modular Matrix
The GefenPRO 32x32 Modular Matrix provides an all-in-one professional-grade solution
to route up to 32 DVI sources to any 32 DVI displays with resolutions up to 1920 x 1200.
The modular design of this matrix provides the ultimate in flexibility by allowing the use of
any combination of DVI, ELR, or 1FO output modules in any of its four output slots. This
feature allows the GefenPRO 32x32 Modular Matrix to function as both a Matrix and as an
Extender. The front-panel LCD displays the current routing status and each DVI source is
accessible to any display by using the front-panel push buttons, via the RS-232 interface, or
through IP Control (built-in Web server and Telnet). Hot-swappable dual redundant power
supplies allow these matrixes to be used for applications in demanding applications where
enhanced reliability, ease of servicing and zero down-time are required.
How It Works
Connect up to 32 DVI source devices using DVI cables to the inputs on the GefenPRO
Modular Matrix. Connect up to 32 displays via DVI, CAT-5, or F ber Optic cables depending
on which output modules are utilized. Connect an Ethernet cable from the network to the
RJ-45 connector to use the built-in Web server or Telnet capability to control routing, EDID,
and other functions. Connect an RS-232 cable from a RS-232 control device to control
the matrix via RS-232. Connect the IEC connectors of the included AC power cords to the
matrix and plug the power cords into available electrical outlets. The DVI sources will be
routed as selected.

INTRODUCTION
Pre-Configured Options
Before reading this User Manual, familiarize yourself with the rear panel of the 32x32
Modular Matrix.
The 32x32 Modular Matrix can accommodate up to four output cards and four input
cards. Each card provides eight connectors, providing a total of 32 inputs and outputs. The 32x32 Modular Matrix is sold pre-configured with a combination of input and output
cards best suited for the needs of your application. We will cover each configuration in
the next section. First, we will identify the location of each input and output card on the
matrix.
NOTE: When a card is not installed, it is recommended that a cover
plate be installed over the expansion bay to prevent dust and other
foreign particles from entering the matrix.
Matrix Layout
The bottom-four expansion bays of the matrix only accept input cards. The top-four
expansion bays only accept output cards. Each expansion bay on the matrix is identified
with a letter: A, B, C, and D, from top to bottom (see next page).
The inputs and outputs are numbered on each card, from left-to-right.
Blue LEDs on each card indicate that the card is properly powered.
Refer to page 10 for detailed information on the rear-panel layout.

RS-232 / IP / UDP CONTROL
IP Configuration
The 32x32 Modular Matrix supports IP-based control using Telnet, UDP, or the built-in
Web-based GUI. To set up IP control, the network settings for the 32x32 Modular Matrix
must be configured via RS-232. The default network settings for the matrix are as follows:
IP Address:
Subnet: Gateway:
HTTP Port:
Telnet Port:
192.168.1.72
255.255.255.0
192.168.1.254
80
23
1.
Connect an RS-232 cable from the PC to the 32x32 Modular Matrix. Also make sure
that an Ethernet cable is connected between the matrix and the network.
2.
Launch a terminal emulation program (e.g. HyperTerminal) and use the RS-232
settings listed on page 37.
NOTE: Depending upon the network, all related IP, Telnet, and
UDP settings will need to be assigned. Consult your network
administrator to obtain the proper settings.
3.
Set the IP address for the matrix using the #sipadd command (see page 55
for details).
4.
Set the subnet mask using the #snetmask command (see page 55 for details).
5.
Set the gateway (router) IP address using the #sgateway command
(see page 53 for details).
6.
Set the Telnet listening port using the #set_tcp_term_port command
(see page 51 for details).
7.
Set the HTTP listening port using the #set_http_port command
(see page 50 for details).
8.
Power-cycle the matrix to reboot and complete all IP setting changes.
9.
Type the IP address that was specified in step 3, in a web browser to access
the Web GUI or use the same IP address to Telnet to the matrix.
UDP Configuration
1.
Set the UDP remote IP address for the matrix using the #set_udp_rip command
(see page 52 for details).
2.
Set the UDP listening port for the matrix using the #set_udp_port command (see
page 52 for details).
3.
Set the UDP remote port for the matrix using the #set_udp_rport command (see
page 53 for details).

APPENDIX
Card Removal and Installation
Although each 32x32 Modular Matrix is sold pre-configured, both input and output cards
can be removed or added to fit the needs of the application. Each module can easily be
removed and installed without using any special tools.
IMPORTANT: Modules are sensitive to Electrostatic Discharge
(ESD) which can damage the module. Avoid touching the module
contacts or the components on the module. Always hold modules
by the edges or by the knobs on the front of the module. Never slide
a module over any surface. When installing/replacing modules, do
not install an input module in to an output slot (or vice versa).
This will damage the matrix and
void the warranty.
1.
Power-off the matrix.
2.
Turn the matrix around so that you are facing the back of the unit.
STOP: Before installing modules and prevent the risk of poss ble
electrical shock, unplug the AC power cord from back of the matrix.
3.
Loosen the fastening screws on both sides of the card (or cover plate) to be removed. Each card / cover plate has two fastening screws.
Pull knob
Fastening screw
95
APPENDIX
4.
Grab the knobs on both sides of the card, between the thumb and index finger, and
gently pull to remove the card from the matrix, as shown on the next page. If a cover
plate is being removed, then loosen the fastening screws on both sides of the cover
plate and gently remove the cover plate.
5.
Locate the grooved metal track on either side of the expansion bay.
Upper rail
Groove
Lower rail
6.
Carefully position the card between the upper and lower rail on each track and slowly
push the card forward.
Upper rail
96
APPENDIX
7.
Position either hand on both sides of the matrix and firmly push the card with both
thumbs until it snaps in place.
8.
Secure the card by hand-tightening the fastening screws. Do not overtighten the
screws. To prevent damage to the screws, do not use pliers or other high-torque
devices.
