Operating Notes
Important
This product has been specifically designed for use with the Gefen Syner-G™
Software Suite, available for download at www.gefen.com. The Gefen
Syner-G™ Discovery and Show-Me features simplify initial IP configuration
•
Always make sure that the 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP is running the
latest firmware.
•
Gefen highly recommends the use of the Syner-G software and Matrix Controller
(Gefen part no. EXT-CU-LAN) for setting up and controlling the operation of a
Video-over-IP network using these products.
•
Shielded CAT-5e (or better) cables should not exceed 330 feet (100 meters) between
the Sender / Receiver unit and the network.
•
By default, all Sender and Receiver units are set to channel 0.
•
The HDMI inputs and outputs on this product also support Single-Link DVI and its
standard VESA resolutions. Dual-Link DVI is not supported.
•
Only the HDMI Input and Output will pass content from HDCP sources such as Blu-ray
players and PlayStation® console systems. VGA does not support HDCP content. If
HDCP encrypted content is being passed, the VGA output will not be active.
•
By default, the source device will use the EDID from the display (or other sink device)
which is connected the Receiver unit.
•
If terminating network cables in the field, please adhere to the TIA/EIA568B
specification. See the Network Cable Diagram (page 188) for details.

Installation & Configuration
The 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP Sender and Receiver units can be connected
over a Local Area Network (LAN) or they can be directly connected to one another. Both
installations will be covered.
Local Area Network (LAN) Connection
In order to connect the 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP to a Local Area Network
(LAN), both the Sender and Receiver unit must first be set to DHCP mode or Static IP
mode. DHCP mode will use the DHCP server to automatically assign an IP address for
each Sender and Receiver unit that is connected to the network. Static IP mode will allow
the IP address for each Sender and Receiver unit to be configured manually. Contact your
network administrator if necessary.
1.
Connect an HDMI cable from the UHD/HD source to the HDMI In port on the Sender
unit.
2.
Connect a VGA cable from the VGA In port on the Sender unit to the VGA source.
3.
Connect a VGA cable from the VGA OUT port on the Sender unit to a local monitor.
4.
Connect an HDMI cable from the UHD/HD display to the HDMI Out port on the
Receiver unit.
5.

Using a Direct Connection
By default, the 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP is shipped in Auto IP mode. Auto IP
mode is used for directly connecting Sender and Receiver units to one another. In Auto IP
mode each Sender and Receiver unit assigns itself a unique IP address within the range of
169.254.x.x. To configure the units to work over a LAN, we must access the
Web interface of the Sender and Receiver unit on a computer. Then, we can change
the network settings.

Configuring Unicast Mode
The term unicast is used to describe a configuration where information is sent from one
point to another point. It is possible to have multiple Sender and Receiver units connected
in a system. However, in unicast mode a Sender unit can communicate with only one
Receiver unit at a time. In unicast mode, the 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP
functions similar to a KVM switcher.
Information
The 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP Sender and Receiver units
shipped from the factory in unicast mode.
The illustration, below, shows 3 Sender units (S1, S2, and S3) and 2 Receiver units
(R1 and R2) on a network, operating in unicast mode. The video channels are notated
in blue.

Switching between Sender units in Unicast mode
When multiple Sender and Receiver unit are used in unicast mode, the 4K Ultra HD
HDMI & VGA KVM over IP behaves as a switcher. In unicast mode, a Sender unit can
communicate with only one Receiver unit at a time.
In the example below, Receiver unit R1 will be switched to receive the source connected to

In this example, Receiver R1 will continue to receive audio/video data from Sender
S1, even though Sender S2 is set to the same channel. The reason for this is
because Receiver R1 and Sender S1 were already set to the same channel and
communicating (as depicted in Figure 2.3). However, this scenario violates the
unicast mode rule: A Sender unit can communicate with only one Receiver unit
at a time.
page | 31
Basic Operation
Unicast & Multicast Modes
When using unicast mode, each of the Sender units must be assigned a unique
channel and should never be changed. Use the Receiver unit to switch (channels)
between Sender units.
Information
In unicast mode, if an additional Sender unit is introduced into a system with
the same channel as another Sender unit, then the Receiver unit will continue
to receive audio/video data from the Sender unit which was connected first.
page | 32
Configuring Multicast Mode
The term multicast is used to describe a configuration where information is sent from one
or more points to a set of other points. For example, a single Sender unit can transmit data
to multiple Receiver units. In addition, if multiple Sender units are used, each Sender unit
can transmit data to any Receiver that is not already receiving data from another Sender
unit. In multicast mode, the 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP functions similar to a
HD KVM matrix.
The illustration, below, shows 3 Sender units (S1, S2, and S3) and 2 Receiver units
(R1 and R2) on a network, operating in multicast mode. The video channels are shown
in blue.

USB under Multicast Mode
When connecting USB devices to the 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP, the
functionality is similar to that of video and RS-232. There are two USB modes available in
multicast mode: Active per request mode and Active on link mode.
Using the last example, another keyboard and mouse device has been connected to
Receiver R1. This will allow us to control the computer from two separate locations. For
purposes of clarity, the USB drive and mic/headset have been removed.

Audio works in both unicast and multicast modes. The only difference between the two
modes is that the Line In port is automatically disabled, on all Receiver units, in multicast
mode. To illustrate how audio works with the 4K Ultra HD HDMI & VGA KVM over IP, we
will set up a microphone and some speakers.
1.
Connect a 3.5mm mini-stereo cable from the Line In port on the Sender unit to the
Line Out port on the computer.

Audio Sources and De-Embedding
The following outlines the audio de-embedding functionality of this product.
•
If a 3.5mm mini-stereo cable is connected to the Line In port on the Sender unit,
then the HDMI audio will be disabled on the Receiver unit. The Line Out port, on the
Receiver unit, will output audio from the source connected to the Line In port on the
Sender unit.
•
When a source is connected to the Line In port on the Sender unit, the audio will be
heard on the HDMI Out, Line Out, and Opt Out ports.
•
The Line In port on the Receiver unit will only pass audio to the Line Out port on the
Sender unit when in unicast mode.
•
The Opt Out port will de-embed both 2-channel PCM and Bitstream (up to 5.1
channel) audio from the HDMI In port. High-resolution (lossless) audio will not be
outputted.
•
HDMI source audio, from the Sender unit, will pass to the HDMI Out and Opt Out
ports on the Receiver unit. HDMI audio will not be converted or down-mixed on the
Line Out port on the Receiver unit.

displays, this is fine, but the row and position will also be copied. There is an option for
“This” unit that will apply to the current unit being interfaced with. The “This” option can
be used to precisely set the proper position of each unit but would require the user to
access the web interface of each unit to set. Alternatively, the drop-down will provide
a list of all connected host (Sender units) and clients (Receiver units). This process
allows the configuration of an entire video wall from a single unit.

Creating Video Walls
Bezel Compensation
Display devices have a region where video data is not displayed. This area is called the
bezel. Bezel compensation takes this area into account when a single video source is
mapped across multiple displays. It is recommended, when a video wall is set up for the
first time, that bezel compensation values be set to zero. Bezel compensation can be
adjusted at any time.
The illustration on the left shows a 2x2 video wall without bezel compensation. Note how
the circle is stretched, slightly, horizontally. On the right, bezel compensation is used to
correct the “distorted” image.
