Product Description
The Extron IN1606 is a six input, HDCP-compliant video scaler in a 1U, full rack width
enclosure. The IN1608 Series are eight input, HDCP-compliant video scalers. The IN1608
and IN1608 HDBT are in a 1U, full rack width enclosure. The other IN1608 Series models
are in 2U, full rack width enclosures.
The scalers include four HDMI inputs, two configurable analog video inputs, and two
simultaneous HDMI outputs. The IN1608 Series also include two DTP inputs and one DTP
or HDBaseT output with corresponding RS-232 and IR pass-through ports. The IN1608
amplifier and IN1608 IPCP models include a stereo or mono amplifier output.
The IN1606 and IN1608 Series accept a wide variety of video formats including HDMI,
HDTV, RGB, and standard definition video. They feature an advanced video scaling engine
with 1080i deinterlacing and seamless switching to deliver uncompromised picture quality
for up to 1920x1200, including 1080p and 2K output resolutions. Automatic 3:2 and
2:2 pulldown detection maximizes the image detail and sharpness for content sources
originating from film. The scalers also use a digital 3D adaptive comb filter that optimizes
decoding of NTSC, PAL, and SECAM sources for integration into systems worldwide.
Enhanced audio features include analog stereo inputs, configurable mono or stereo outputs,
two mic/line inputs with ducking and phantom power, and HDMI audio embedding and
de-embedding. Designed for professional AV integration, the scalers offer flexible control
options including Ethernet, RS-232, and USB. They provide two simultaneous HDMI
outputs so that two displays can be driven simultaneously without the need for additional
equipment.
To accommodate a variety of sources, the scalers feature four HDMI inputs plus two
universal analog video inputs that can process RGB computer video, HDTV, component
video, S-video, and composite video. They provide the capability to integrate digital and
analog devices, with HDCP-compliance to enable integration of Blu-ray Disc players and
cable or satellite HD receivers.
IN1606 and IN1608 Series Scaling Presentation Switcher • Introduction
2
To enhance and simplify integration of HDMI sources and displays, the scalers feature
two exclusive Extron technologies: EDID Minder and Key Minder. EDID Minder manages
Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) communication between the display devices
and input sources. For HDMI signals with protected content, Key Minder authenticates and
maintains continuous HDCP-encryption between input and output devices. The scalers also
feature SpeedSwitch technology that delivers exceptional switching speed for
HDCP-encrypted content.
IN1608 IPCP models feature a built-in Extron IP Link Pro control processor for complete
customizable control of an entire AV system. It has the same advanced features, processing
power, and breakthrough technologies found in the standalone Extron IPCP Pro 350 control
processors.
The scalers provide complete control of advanced audio configuration settings through
internal web pages. Using the internal web pages, users can easily adjust audio input and
output gain, attenuation, mixing, and ducking parameters.
The DTP twisted pair inputs and output receive and transmit signals from remote DTP
transmitters and a receiver. Bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals can be inserted from a
control system and transmitted over the single shielded twisted pair cable together with the
video and audio, enabling control of a source or display. Additionally, IN1608 Series can
send power to each of the DTP transmitters and receiver over the same shielded twisted
pair cable, streamlining system design and installation. Most IN1608 Series models support
a maximum transmission distance of 330 feet (100 meters) when paired with a DTP 330
series transmitter or receiver. However, when paired with DTP 230 series endpoints, they
support a maximum transmission distance of 230 feet (70 meters).
NOTE: Despite having similar names, the -0x and -5x models support different
maximum transmission distances.
• -0x models support a maximum transmission distance of 230 feet (70 meters).
• -5x models support a maximum transmission distance of 330 feet (100 meters).
The scalers feature front panel controls with an on-screen display (OSD) menu system for
quick access to functions. Remote configuration and control are available via USB,
RS-232, and Ethernet. Housed in 1U or 2U full rack width metal enclosures, the scalers can
easily be integrated into many environments. They are ideal in boardrooms where superior
performance is essential and in instructional environments for complete integration of digital
and analog AV sources and displays.
The following diagram shows an example of a typical application for the IN1606.

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 important. 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 importante 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.

Figure 18.
LockIt Cable Lacing Bracket Mounting Instructions
1. Loosen the side HDMI connection mounting screw (see figure 18, 1) so there is
enough space between the device and the screw head to fit the cable lacing bracket.
Do not remove the screw from the device.
2. Plug the HDMI cables into the panel connection (2).
3. Place the bracket on the screw and against the HDMI cables, and then tighten the
screw to secure the bracket (3).
ATTENTION:
• Do not overtighten the screw. The shield to which it is fastened is very thin and
can easily be stripped.
• Ne serrez pas trop la vis. Le blindage auquel elle est attachée est très fin et
peut facilement être dénudé.
4. Loosely place the included tie wrap around the HDMI connector and the LockIt lacing
bracket (4).
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.

Supported cables
The scalers are compatible with shielded twisted pair (F/UTP, SF/UTP, and S/FTP) cable.
ATTENTION:
• Do not use Extron UTP23SF-4 Enhanced Skew-Free AV UTP cable or STP201
cable to link the device with DTP transmitters or receivers.
• N’utilisez pas le câble AV Skew-Free UTP version améliorée UTP23SF d’Extron ou
le câble STP201 pour relier le appareil avec les émetteurs ou les récepteurs DTP.
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
22-236-03
•
XTP DTP 24P/1000
Plenum 1000’ (305 m) spool
22-235-03
•
XTP DTP 24 Plug
Package of 10
101-005-02
•
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.

centering on dark video sources (such as a dark PC desktop).
The following is performed during an Auto-Image when the aspect ratio is set to Fill:
•
Horizontal and vertical image position return to 0.
•
Horizontal and vertical image size match the current output resolution.
The following is performed during an Auto-Image when the aspect ratio is set to Follow:
The horizontal and vertical image position and image size are set to maintain the
native aspect of the input rate with regard to the current output resolution.
•
Set the aspect ratio on the Advanced submenu (see Aspect Ratio on page 37).
NOTE: The auto-Image submenu is the same as the standard A SIS command.
However, there are other Auto-Image options available through SIS commands
(see the Auto-Image SIS commands on page 52) or PCS and the internal web
pages (see Signal Sampling panel on page 93 or Size and Position Page on
page 97). The options include to execute an Auto-Image and fill the output and
to execute an Auto-Image and maintain the input aspect ratio. These commands
ignore the current aspect mode setting, auto-image the input, and then apply a
“fill” or “follow.”

The time-out duration can be set to any duration from 0-500 seconds.
•
Auto-Image — Press the navigation buttons to turn the automatic per-input
Auto-Image mode on or off (default).
When enabled and a new input frequency is detected, the scaler first applies an existing
Auto Memory for the signal (if Auto Memory is enabled). If no entry exists, it performs an
automatic Auto-Image on the new signal. This sets a size and position for the image to
fill the screen, with respect to the current Aspect Ratio setting.
By default, the Auto-Image threshold is 25% brightness. Analog video signals greater
than the threshold are considered active video. To change the threshold value, use SIS
commands (see the Auto-Image Threshold Value commands on page 52).
•
Aspect Ratio — Press the navigation buttons to set the aspect ratio setting of the
active input to Fill (default) or Follow.
When in Fill mode, all inputs automatically fill the entire output. To adjust an aspect
ratio for a single input rate, set the desired size and center in the Picture Controls
submenu (see Picture Controls Submenu on page 29). If auto memory is enabled,
these settings are saved and recalled the next time the signal is detected.
In Follow mode, each input rate is displayed with its native aspect ratio mode with the
correct letter box or pillar box settings visible.
The scaler clears the previous size and position settings whenever the aspect ratio
setting for an input is adjusted.

Overscan — Press the navigation buttons to select the overscan value for each input
format. Choose between 0%, 2.5%, or 5%. Set default overscan mode through SIS
commands (see the Overscan Mode SIS commands on page 61).
Overscan is specific to each input signal type. This feature zooms and crops SMPTE
input resolutions to mask edge effects and ancillary data that are common in broadcast
signals. When the overscan mode is not at 0%, an Auto-Image on a SMPTE input rate
(NTSC, PAL, SECAM, 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 2K [2048x1080]) refers to
the default input lookup table values instead of performing a “true” auto image.
NOTE: Overscan is valid only on SMPTE input rates (NTSC, PAL, 480p, 576p,
720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 2K [2048x1080]) and is global for each video format.

SIS Configuration
and Control
The scaler can be configured and controlled with Extron Simple Instruction Set 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, the LAN port, or 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). This section
describes SIS communication and control. Topics in this section include:
•
Host and Scaler Communication
•
Using the Command and Response Tables
•
Symbol Definitions
•
Command and Response Tables
The scaler uses a protocol of 9600 baud, 1 stop bit, no parity, and no flow control (see
Remote RS-232 Connector on page 18).
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).
Scaler-Initiated Messages
When a local event such as a front panel selection or adjustment takes place, the scaler
responds by sending a message to the host. No response is required from the host.
Example scaler-initiated messages are listed here.
•
•
•
X! All ] (where X! is the input number during an input switch).
Reconfig ] The scaler sends this response when an input is switched or when a new
In
signal is detected.
HplgO X@] The scaler sends this response when a hot plug event on output X@ is
detected.

Password Messages
The ]Password: prompt is displayed after the copyright messages and requires a
password (administrator level or user level) followed by a carriage return.
NOTES:
• The factory configured passwords for all accounts on these devices have been set
to the device serial number. Passwords are case sensitive.
• Performing a unit factory reset (entering an E ZQQQ} SIS command [see
page 63] or a mode 5 reset via the rear panel Reset button [see page 41]) resets
the serial number passwords to no password.
If the correct password is entered, the unit responds with ]Login Administrator] or
]Login User], depending on the password entered. If passwords are the same for both
administrator and user, the switcher defaults to administrator privileges.
NOTE: The password prompt is redisplayed if an incorrect password is entered.
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.
Error codes
E01 — Invalid input number
E14 — Not valid for this configuration
E06 — Invalid input channel change
E17 — Invalid command for signal type

Input (renaming)
By default, the name associated with an input channel is Input <number>. To rename an
input, click inside the desired input field (see figure 59, 1, on the previous page) and type
in the desired name to identify the input. Input names have a 16-character limit.
NOTE: Entering a single space character resets the name of the input to the default.
Signal type
From the Signal Type drop-down menu (2), select the signal type for inputs 1 and 2 from
RGB (default), YUV, RGBcvS, S-Video, and Composite. For all other inputs, HDMI/DVI is the
only available signal type.
Aspect ratio
From the Aspect Ratio drop-down menu (3), select Fill or Follow.
•
Fill — Scales the input signal to fill the entire video output.
•
Follow — Follows the signal aspect ratio, with respect to the current output resolution
setting. Black letter box or pillar box bars may be applied for aspect ratio compensation.
Auto-Image
Select the Auto-Image checkbox (4) of the desired input to enable an automatic
Auto-Image to an input. When enabled, Auto-Image is applied whenever there is a change
in the input sync. Auto-Image attempts to size and center the input signal based on the
aspect ratio setting.
By default, the Auto-Image threshold is 25% brightness. Analog video signals greater
than the threshold are considered active video. To change the threshold value, use SIS
commands (see Auto-Image Threshold Value on page 52).
Auto Memory
Select the Auto Memory checkbox (5) of the desired input to enable the Auto Memory (see
the Auto Memory and Auto-Image Interaction table on page 38 for a summary of the
interaction between Auto Memory and Auto-Image). Auto Memory recalls input and image
settings for signals that have previously been applied. When Auto Memory is disabled, the
scaler treats every newly applied input as a new source.
HDCP Authorized
Select the HDCP Authorized checkbox (6) to enable or disable the HDCP Authorized
feature (inputs 3 and higher). This feature determines if a digital input will report as an HDCP
authorized sink to a source.
NOTE: This option is not available for analog inputs 1 and 2.
For source devices that require encryption, enable HDCP Authorized. If HDCP Authorized
is disabled for sources that require encryption (for example, a Blu-ray player), the output is
muted or a warning message is displayed.
Some source devices may encrypt their output even if the source material does not require
HDCP encryption, preventing content from being displayed on a non-HDCP compliant
display. Disable HDCP Authorized to allow the output of the scaler to remain unencrypted.
Film Detect
Select the Film Detect checkbox (7) of the desired input to enable automatic 3:2 and 2:2
film pulldown detection for NTSC, PAL, SECAM, and 1080i input signals.

Phantom power
Phantom power adds +48 VDC to the mic/line input. The default level for the microphone
input is 0 dB, muted. Having the input muted before plugging in a microphone and
especially before turning on phantom power is recommended.
ATTENTION:
• Condenser microphones require +48 V phantom power. Dynamic microphones
do not require power. Never enable phantom power with an unbalanced dynamic
microphone connected. Doing so may damage the microphone.
• Les microphones électrostatiques nécessitent une +48 V alimentation fantôme.
Les microphones dynamiques n’ont pas besoin d’alimentation. Ne réglez jamais
l’alimentation fantôme avec un microphone dynamique asymétrique. Cela pourrait
endommager le micro.
• For condenser microphones, verify it will safely operate at +48 VDC.
• Pour les microphones électrostatiques, vérifiez qu’ils fonctionnent bien à +48 Vcc.
• When a line level source is connected, be certain the +48 V phantom power is off.
• Lorsqu’une source de niveau ligne est connectée, soyez certain que l’alimentation
fantôme +48 V est débranchée.

5. For web pages, select the Enable Meters checkbox (¤).
NOTE: Meters are automatically enabled in the PCS.
6. While speaking into a connected microphone, adjust the mic/line Gain fader until
the mic/line audio input is clearly audible. Voice levels at microphone inputs can vary
significantly, so gain and meter level readings may vary. Aim to have the meter averaging
-20 dBFS to -15 dBFS to accommodate normal variances in voice intensity.
Ducking parameters
Ducking lowers the level of microphone or program material (based on a source signal from
another microphone) for the duration of the signal that is present at the source microphone.
It restores the original level after the source signal ceases and after the hold and release
times are met. This is useful when:
•
Program material must be attenuated in order to accentuate the voice of a narrator.
•
One microphone is used by a chairman or master of ceremonies and must have priority
over other microphones and program material.
•
A paging microphone must attenuate all other signals.
To apply ducking for microphone inputs:
1. Click the Mic/Line Input tab (1).
2. From the desired Mic/Line input panel, select the Enable Ducking checkbox (4).
The following ducking options become available:
•
Threshold — Sets the input signal level in dB that the ducking source must exceed
before ducking begins. The default is -30 dBFS.
•
Hold time — Determines the time in milliseconds after a ducking source signal
drops below the threshold before ducking ceases. The default value is 1000 ms.
•
Release time — Determines how long in milliseconds the ducking targets take to
restore signal levels after the ducking source level is below the threshold and the
hold time is met.
•
Duck (targets) — Shows all potential targets to be attenuated when ducking is
enabled.
•
Duck by (attenuation) — Attenuates the corresponding duck target in dB.
3. In the Threshold field (5), adjust the value by one of the following methods:
•
Enter a value in the Threshold field and press the <Enter> or <Tab> key.
•
Click the Up or Down arrow buttons.
If ducking does not occur quickly enough to avoid loss of speech or program material
from the ducking source, decrease this setting. If ducking occurs too soon, allowing
background noise to trigger ducking, increase the setting.

To optimize the program volume:
1. With the amplifier turned off, connect the Variable output of the scaler to an amplifier of
appropriate size for the room and the speakers.
2. Set the amplifier input level to a moderate level (for example, the twelve o’clock position
on the amplifier dial). For IN1608 amplifier and IN1608 IPCP models, the amplifier input
level setting is already set.
NOTE: The twelve o’clock position on an amplifier input level is generally a
moderate level. This allows for the maximum signal to noise ratio and is easily
repeatable. The actual value of the amplifier input level will vary on each amplifier.
While most amplifiers have a maximum input of +4 dBu, attenuating the amplifier
input sensitivity by 12-17 dB will generally allow for maximum output from the
scaler.
3. Connect the speakers to the amplifier, assuring that polarity is not reversed.
4. Set the program volume to full attenuation.
5. Set the output volume to 100% (default).
6. Turn on the amplifier.
7. Play program material and adjust program volume to a reasonably loud yet tolerable
level. Verify that the amplifier is not clipping.
8. If desired, set the upper soft limit on the program volume to set the maximum allowable
level. This may be 6 or 12 dB above the current level (reasonably loud), or a value that is
determined to be the loudest level allowable for the room. Verify that the amplifier is not
clipping.
9. If desired, set a minimum allowable level by setting the lower soft limit.
10. Set the mic volume to an appropriate level relative to program volume.
Bass and treble
Also known as shelving or tone controls, the bass and treble faders provide the ability to cut
or boost levels. Both faders have a range of -24 dB to +12 dB. They also includes soft limit
handles to adjust the minimum and maximum allowable range (highlighted in blue). The bass
tone control corner frequency is 100 Hz. The treble tone control corner frequency is 8 kHz.

Figure 77. Digital Audio Output Section (IN1608 Series)
The digital output section displays the detected audio format sent to the HDMI or twisted
pair output (see Audio format on page 99).
NOTE: If the detected format is Multi-Ch audio, the Left and Right faders and
meters are not applicable.
Limiters
The output limiters restrict the input signal level by compressing its dynamic range when
exceeding a specified threshold. They are most commonly used to prevent clipping,
protecting a system against component or speaker damage. They are enabled by default,
which is the recommended setting for most configurations.
When a limiter is enabled, the following are set:
•
Threshold — Activates or deactivates the limiter (subject to attack or release time) after
the signal level exceeds or drops below -0.1 dBFS.
•
Attack time — Activates the limiter after the signal level reaches or exceeds the
threshold level for 2.0 ms.
•
Release time — Restores the output signal level to normal (unprocessed) levels when
the signal level remains below the threshold level for 100 ms.
•
Ratio — Reduces the signal level at a 100:1 ratio when the limiter is activated.
•
Soft knee — Smooths and softens the transition from unprocessed to processed
output levels.
To enable or disable a limiter on an output:
1. Click the Output tab (see figure 69, 4, on page 98).
2. For the desired output, click the Limiter button (see figures 73-77, 1, on pages 108
and 109) in the appropriate output section.

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).
