for balanced or unbalanced stereo audio (see figure 3 and figures 4 through 6).
Connectors are included with the unit, but the audio cable is not (see figure 10 on
page 19 for wiring).
I
Analog audio Mic/Line input connectors 1 and 2 — Connect balanced or
unbalanced mic or line level inputs to these 3-pole Mic/Line captive screw connectors
These inputs support optional +48 VDC phantom power, which is indicated by the LEDs
at the left of the connectors.
J
Analog audio line output connectors 1 through 4 — Connect balanced or
unbalanced analog audio output devices to one or both 5-pole captive screw audio
output connector pairs 1 and 2 or 3 and 4 (see Analog Audio Connections on
page 19).
ATTENTION:
• For unbalanced audio, connect the sleeves to the ground contact. Do not
connect them to negative (–) contacts.
• Pour l’audio asymétrique, connectez les manchons au contact au sol. Ne
PAS connecter les manchons aux contacts négatifs (–).
• The length of the exposed wires in the stripping process is critical. The ideal
length is 3/16 inch (5 mm). If the exposed portion is longer, the wires may
touch, causing a short circuit between them. If the exposed wires are shorter,
they can be easily pulled out, even if tightly fastened by the captive screws.
• La longueur des câbles exposés est primordiale lorsque l’on entreprend
de les dénuder. S’ils sont un peu plus longs, les câbles exposés pourraient
se toucher et provoquer un court circuit. S’ils sont un peu plus courts, ils
pourraient sortir, même s’ils sont attachés par les vis captives.
• Do not tin the wires. Tinned wire does not hold its shape and can become
loose over time.
• Ne pas étamer les câbles. Les câbles étamés ne sont pas aussi bien fixés
dans les terminaisons des connecteurs à vis captives et pourraient sortir.

Top Mounting a LockIt Cable Lacing Bracket
1. Plug the HDMI cable into the panel connection (see figure 12, 1).
2. Loosen the HDMI connection mounting screw from the panel enough to allow the
LockIt lacing bracket to be placed over it (2). The screw does not have to be removed.
3. Place the LockIt lacing bracket on the screw and against the HDMI connector, then tighten
the screw to secure the bracket (3).
4. Loosely place the included tie wrap around the HDMI connector and the LockIt lacing
bracket as shown. If using a stacked pair of connectors (such as HDMI Inputs 2 and
3), place the tie wrap around both connectors and the bracket (see figure 11 on the
previous page).
5. While holding the connector securely against the lacing bracket, use pliers or a similar
tool to tighten the tie wrap, then remove any excess length (4).
ATTENTION:
• Do not overtighten the HDMI connection mounting screw. The shield to which
it is fastened is very thin and can easily be stripped.
• Ne serrez pas trop la vis de montage du connecteur HDMI. Le blindage auquel
elle est attachée est très fin et peut facilement être dénudé.

Cable recommendations
Extron recommends using the following practices to achieve full transmission distances and
reduce transmission errors.
Use the following Extron XTP DTP 24 SF/UTP cables and connectors for the best
performance:
•
•
XTP DTP 24/1000
Non-Plenum 1000' (305 m) spool
•
XTP DTP 24P/1000
Plenum 1000' (305 m) spool
•
XTP DTP 24 Plug
Package of 10
•
If not using XTP DTP 24 cable, at a minimum, Extron recommends 24 AWG, solid
conductor, STP cable with a minimum bandwidth of 400 MHz.
•
Terminate cables with shielded connectors to the TIA/EIA-T568B standard.
•
Limit the use of more than two pass-through points, which may include patch points,
punch down connectors, couplers, and power injectors. If these pass-through points
are required, use shielded couplers and punch down connectors.
NOTE: When using shielded twisted pair cable in bundles or conduits, consider the
following:
• Do not exceed 40% fill capacity in conduits.
• Do not comb the cable for the first 20 meters, where cables are straightened,
aligned, and secured in tight bundles.
• Loosely place cables and limit the use of tie wraps or hook-and-loop fasteners.
• Separate twisted pair cables from AC power cables.

Front Panel Lockout (Executive Modes)
The IN1806 and IN1808 Series scalers have five modes of front panel security lock that limit
the operation of the device from the front panel. When the front panel controls are locked,
RS-232, USB, and Ethernet control remain operational.
NOTE: All lock modes persist after a power cycle.
The front panel lock mode can also be selected using SIS commands (see the Front Panel
Lock (Executive Mode) commands on page 77) and PCS (see the IN1806 and IN1808
Series PCS Help file).
The following table shows the functionality that is in place for each mode:

Input Presets
The IN1806 and IN1808 Series scalers have 128 memory slots in which you can save
input presets. These presets are global to all inputs that contain the settings for use with
a matrix switcher. A matrix switcher with multiple types of video inputs (such as an XTP
matrix switcher) can be placed upstream from the IN1806 and IN1808 Series to expand the
number of video sources.
Input presets can be saved and recalled only through SIS commands (see the Presets
commands on page 73) and PCS (see the IN1806 and IN1808 Series PCS Help File).
•
When you recall an input preset, the unit fills the output raster based on the sizing and
positioning that it had at the time the preset was saved. For example, a video source
that was configured to be zoomed when it was previously saved as a preset is still
zoomed, even if recalled to a smaller output raster.
•
Input presets can be saved based on one input rate and recalled to a different rate. This
enables presets to be used as aspect ratio or other quick-sizing shortcuts. Because the
size and position is saved as a percent of the raster, the preset can be recalled to any
scaled output and the saved size and position are scaled proportionally on the output.
Values for the following settings are saved in input presets:
• Preset name
• Horizontal image position
• Film mode detection
• Vertical image position
• Contrast
• Horizontal image size (width)
• Brightness
• Vertical image size (height)
• Detail
Saving a preset when using a matrix switcher
When using the IN1806 or IN1808 with a matrix switcher, do the following to save a preset:
1. Switch each input of the matrix to the IN1806 or IN1808.
2. Configure each input: size, position, detail, brightness, and contrast.
3. Save the settings to a preset for recall by the control system when that matrix input is
routed to any IN1806 or IN1808 Series input.
Power Save Modes
The IN1806 and IN1808 Series can be placed into a standby (low power) mode via SIS
commands (see the Power Save commands on page 69) in order to conserve power. To
restore the unit to full power mode, enter the appropriate SIS command, press any front
panel button, switch inputs via SIS command, or cycle power to the unit. The following
power save modes are supported:
•
Mode 0 — Full power mode
•
Mode 1 — All non-essential hardware is shut down.
•
Mode 2 — All non-essential hardware is shut down, but over-TP functionality and
remote power remain enabled.

Reset Modes
RESET
The IN1806 and IN1808 Series scalers have three reset modes (numbered 1,
4, and 5). Use a small screwdriver or stylus to press and hold the recessed Reset
button to advance through the modes. The green Reset LED blinks to indicate each
mode that is enabled (see the Reset Mode Summary table).
NOTE: This Reset button and LED are located in the lower-right corner of the rear
panel, and are unrelated to the Reset button and LED in the IPCP control panel of the
IN1808 IPCP models.
You can also perform resets using the OSD (see Factory Reset on the Advanced submenu
on page 43), SIS commands (see the Resets commands beginning on page 79), and PCS
(see the IN1806 and IN1808 Series PCS Help file).
ATTENTION:
• Review the reset modes carefully. Using the wrong reset mode may result in
unintended loss of flash memory programming, port reassignment, or unit reboot.
• Étudier de près les différents modes de réinitialisation. Appliquer le mauvais mode
de réinitialisation peut causer une perte inattendue de la programmation de la
mémoire flash, une reconfiguration des ports ou une réinitialisation du processeur.
NOTE: The reset modes listed close all open IP and Telnet connections and all sockets.
Each mode is a separate function, not a continuation from mode 1 to mode 5.

RS-232 and IR Signal Insertion
The twisted pair input and output ports allow you to insert RS-232 and IR control signals
onto the same cable that carries video and audio to extend them to the Over TP port on
a connected endpoint (see figure 30 on the next page and figure 31 on page 49). The
control signals can be inserted two ways:
RS-232 communication can be sent to the far end of the twisted pair connection via a
LAN or an AV LAN (IPCP models only) connector. A control signal applied to an IN1806 or
IN1808 Series LAN port can be routed to the RS-232 port of any connected twisted pair
device (see Ethernet to RS-232 Insertion on the next page).
When connected to an Ethernet LAN, the scaler can be accessed from a computer running
a standard Internet browser. Use a patch or crossover cable to connect the IN1806 or
IN1808 Series device to a computer, control device, router, or switch.

Figure 30 is an example of an Ethernet to RS-232 insertion, in which an Extron
controller provides control of an HD camera via the IN1806 and IN1808 Series and a
DTP HDMI 4K 230 transmitter. Configure this type of insertion as follows:
1. Connect a TP cable from the control system to the scaler LAN port, directly or via a
network.
2. If necessary to match the device to be controlled, configure the port RS-232 protocol
(baud rate, parity, data bits, and stop bits) (see RS-232 protocol on the next page).

4. Connect a serial cable from the endpoint to the device to be controlled.
Port number
For Ethernet to RS-232 insertion, the insertion port number must be stated from a specific
universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter (UART) start point. This number is entered as
the Telnet port number when you establish communication with the insertion port.
For the purposes of this discussion, consider the Ethernet insertion ports as serial (RS-232)
ports. The input insertion port number is the UART start point + 1. The output insertion port
number is the UART start point +3. With the default UART start point of 2000, the input and
output insertion ports are:

Changing the starting point
By default the UART start point is 2000. You can change the starting port number by any of
the following methods:
•
Using the Product Configuration Software (see IN1806 and IN1808 Series PCS Help file)
•
Using SIS commands (see the Set UART start point SIS command on page 80)
RS-232 protocol
You also may need to set the RS-232 protocol of the addressed port to match the connected
device. You can do this using any of the following methods:
•
Using PCS (see the IN1806 and IN1808 Series PCS Help file).
•
Using SIS commands (see the Serial Port Configuration SIS commands on
page 80).

SIS Configuration
and Control
The IN1806 and IN1808 Series scalers can be configured and controlled via Extron Simple
Instruction Set (SIS) commands when connected to a host computer or other device
(such as a control system). Attach the host device to the rear panel RS-232 connector
or LAN connector, or to the front panel USB port. Commands can be entered using a
Telnet application such as the Extron DataViewer, available at www.extron.com (see the
DataViewer Help file for more details). The default protocol for the RS-232 connection is
9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, and no flow control. This section describes SIS
communication and control. Topics in this section include:
•
Host and Scaler Communication
•
SIS Overview
•
Command and Response Tables for SIS Commands
Host and Scaler Communication
SIS commands consist of one or more characters per field. No special characters are
required to begin or end a command sequence. When the scaler determines that a
command is valid, it executes the command and sends a response to the host device. All
responses from the scaler to the host end with a carriage return and a line feed
(CR/LF = ]), indicating the end of the response character string (one or more characters).
Copyright Messages
The copyright message is displayed upon connecting to a scaler via TCP/IP or Telnet or
after a power cycle via RS-232, and depends on the scaler model.

Password Messages
If the IN1806 or IN1808 is protected by a password, the following password message
prompts you for the password to access the scaler features.
]Password]
The prompt requires a password, followed by a carriage return. The prompt is repeated if
the correct password is not entered.
•
For initial setup: On the rear panel of the IN1806 or IN1808, a label is attached
containing the following:
The factory-configured passwords for all accounts on this device have been
set to the device serial number. Passwords are case-sensitive.
This means that, for initial setup, you must enter the serial number of your unit at the
password prompt (the serial number can be found on another label on the rear panel).
This password allows administrator level access.
If the correct password is entered, access is granted and the command prompt is
displayed. If the password is incorrect, the ]Password] prompt reappears.
NOTE: Performing a unit factory reset (entering a ZQQQ SIS command or a
mode 5 reset via the rear panel Reset button) removes the serial number
password, leaving the unit with no password.
•
After a password change: After the initial access, you can keep the serial number
password or change it. You can also set administrator and user level passwords (see
the Passwords SIS commands on page 84).
When you enter the new password correctly, the unit responds with one of the
following, depending on the password entered:
• ]Login Administrator]
• ]Login User]
(If the password is not accepted, the Password prompt reappears.)
The Login Administrator response represents administrator level access, while the
Login User response represents user level access. If the passwords are the same for both
administrator and user, the unit defaults to administrator privileges.
If the unit is not password-protected, it is ready to accept SIS commands immediately after
it sends the copyright message.
Scaler-initiated Messages
When certain local events occur, such as a change in the status of a contact closure port,
the scaler responds by sending a message to the host. No response is required from the
host. The following messages may be sent:
•
Reconfig ] A change in the current input frequency was detected.
•
HplgO X@ *X7)] A hot plug event was detected on output X@.
For X7): 1 = assertion, 2 = de-assertion
•
HdcpI X!*X4$] A change was detected in the HDCP status of input X!.
•
HdcpO X@*X4$] A change was detected in the HDCP status of output X@.
•
IN00•X5!*...*X5!] This message appears when a sync change (detected or
removed) occurs on any input.
X5! is the video signal status for each input. For X5!, 0 = no input signal detected,
1 = input signal detected.
IN1806 and IN1808 Series Scaling Presentation Switchers • SIS Configuration and Control
52
Error Responses
When the scaler receives a valid command, it executes the command and sends a
response to the host device. If the unit is unable to execute the command, it returns an error
response to the host.
E01 — Invalid input number
E17 — Invalid command for signal type
E10 — Invalid command
E22 — Busy
E11 — Invalid preset number
E24 — Privilege violation

The Command and Response Tables for SIS commands, beginning on page 62, lists
the commands that the scaler recognizes as valid, the responses that are returned to the
host, a description of the command function or the results of executing the command, and
examples of commands in ASCII (Telnet).

NOTES:
• In verbose response mode, the IN1806 or
IN1808 returns unsolicited responses for value
and setting changes that may result from a
signal change, or a setting adjustment made via
another interface.
Example: The IN1806 or IN1808 can send out
a notice of a change in some setting without
receiving a query via a PC or a control system.
That change could have been a result of an
internal process or a selection made via the PCS
program. This is a verbose (wordy) relationship
between the controller and a connected device.
• If tagged responses are enabled, all “view”
commands return the command string plus the
data, the same as in responses for setting a
value. For example:

Audio DSP SIS Commands
DSP SIS command structure
Several digital signal processor (DSP) functions can be configured using SIS commands.
Commands entered via PCS are also displayed on the host communication utility screen
that is being used for SIS commands (for example, Extron DataViewer).
DSP control commands are a subset of the SIS commands with a specific structure.
•
For a Set command, the form of the command string is:
E <parameter ID><OID>*<value>AU }
where:
•
•
<OID> (Object ID) is a six-digit integer identifying the processor (see the Object
Identification Number table on page 85).
•
<Parameter ID> is a letter identifying the parameter.
•
<Value> is a number indicating the level being set for the parameter.
For a View (Get) command, the value parameter can be eliminated, so that the
command structure for viewing a single parameter is:
E <parameter ID><OID>AU }
•
The unit response to these commands begins with Ds. The response format is:
Ds<Parameter ID><OID>*<value>]

Mounting
Tabletop Mounting
Attach the provided rubber feet to the bottom four corners of the enclosure.
Rack Mounting
The IN1806 and IN1808 Series can be mounted to a standard 19-inch rack shelf. Mounting
kits are available at www.extron.com. To mount the unit, see the instructions provided with
the kit.
UL guidelines for rack mounted devices
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) guidelines pertain to the safe installation of the
scaler in a rack.
1. Elevated operating ambient temperature — If the equipment is installed in a closed
or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment
may be greater than room ambient temperature. Therefore, install the scaler in an
environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma = +122 ˚F,
+50 ˚C) specified by Extron.
2. Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in a rack so that the amount of air flow
required for safe operation of the equipment is no compromised.
3. Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack so that a hazardous
condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
4. Circuit overloading — Connect the equipment to the supply circuit and consider the
effect that circuit overloading might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when
addressing this concern.
5. Reliable earthing (grounding) — Maintain reliable grounding of rack-mounted
equipment. Pay particular attention to supply connections other than direct connections
to the branch circuit (for example, use of power strips).
