The VSN970
Features – VSN970
The VSN970 system incorporates the Datapath PCI Express9-G3 switched fabric backplane, providing 9
high bandwidth PCIe slots for use with any Datapath video capture or graphics card. Also providing
further benefits with the Datapath’s SBC4, a single board computer featuring an Intel Core i7 processor
with up to 16GB of DDR3 memory and on-board graphics.
The backplane provides a single x8 lane slot (8GB/s) and eight x4 lane slots (4GB/s) each providing high
speed bi-directional bandwidth. Allows UHD video to be captured and then displayed on the video wall
with very low latency.
Each system comes complete with high quality, server grade hard drives with RAID 1, preinstalled with
Windows 7® Ultimate edition (64bit). Enhanced system cooling is achieved via 3 variable speed fans, and
each system offers on-board SATA and USB ports.
The use of PCIe switched fabrics, enables the VSN970 system to be expanded using additional backplanes
within VSN900X chassis connected via the optional expansion kit.

Software
Each VSN970 shipped by Datapath is custom built. If cards are not pre-installed then installation of the
software is required. For information on software installation consult the relevant product user manual
contained on the installation CD.
If you have ordered Datapath Wall Control-red software this will have been installed prior to shipment.
ImageDP4 Video BIOS
The Intel x86 based architecture limits the amount of legacy I/O space available in a system to 64KB.
Hardware which requires I/O access can be mapped into this 64KB area. An ImageDP4 requests 256 Bytes
of legacy I/O. Unfortunately any PCIe bridge will align this to a 4KB boundary and so the I/O space
allocated to each ImageDP4 is actually 4KB.
64KB ÷ 4kB gives an absolute maximum of 16 ImageDP4 graphics cards. However, other system devices
also require legacy I/O. Often the Network Devices will request some I/O space, and so might the USB
devices and on-board graphics. It is not unusual for there to be I/O space available for only 8 ImageDP4
graphics cards when installing them in a complex server class motherboard.
There are a number of different BIOS types in operation as the computer boots. The “System BIOS” is
resident on the motherboard and is responsible for starting up all the hardware and mapping in the
resources (like the I/O) so that they are available to the CPU. The “Video BIOS” is resident on the
graphics cards. It is responsible for booting the GPU and for informing the System BIOS which resources
will be required for the GPU to operate correctly.
The System BIOS requires an I/O enabled ImageDP4 if it is used as the boot device, i.e. it provides the
graphics output that displays the BIOS boot messages. However the Windows driver for the ImageDP4
has been designed so that it does not require I/O. We can therefore use two types of Video BIOS for the
ImageDP4, one which requests I/O (and which can be used as a boot device) and one which does not. This
allows us to increase the number of ImageDP4 cards which can be used in a system.
To find out more about how to choose the correct BIOS for your requirements and how to update the
BIOS for the ImageDP4, download a PDF from our website by clicking on the link below or select it from
the Read Me file on the Software Installation Suite CD supplied with your ImageDP4 card:

Use of the SBC’s onboard graphics adaptor
Onboard Graphics Adaptor used as Control Screen
The VSN970 is shipped with the BIOS configured to boot off the onboard graphics device. This output can
then be used as the control screen for a typical wall configuration.
To set the system to boot on the onboard graphics device (“nitiate Graphic Adapter” - IGD), enter setup
from the boot screen by pressing <F2> as prompted.
In the BIOS setup utility select:
Advanced>Graphic Configuration>Graphics Configuration>Primary Display Selection>Initiate Graphic
Adapter - [IGD]
Fig.4
Onboard Graphics Adaptor Disabled
If you do not require a control screen, then you should disable the integrated graphics as described below.
Connect a monitor to the onboard graphics device output and enter setup from the boot screen by
pressing <F2> as prompted.
In the BIOS setup utility select:
Advanced>Graphic Configuration>Graphics Configuration>Primary Display Selection [PEG/PCI]
9
Once the Primary Display selection PEG/PCI has been made the “Above 4GB MMIO BIOS assignment”
should be disabled.
Navigate to:
Advanced>Graphic Configuration>PEG Port Configuration> Above 4GB MMIO BIOS assignment Disabled
By opting to disable the on board graphics adapter, this reduces the maximum number of screens
available from 64 to 32.
Fig.5
The system will then boot on an output from the graphics card identified last by the PCI Bus.

Connecting Expansion Chassis (VSN900X)
It is possible to connect a VSN900X expansion chassis to the VSN970 thereby increasing the number of
PCIe slots available.
The following diagram illustrate how this can be achieved:
Fig.7
Connect the chassis by installing HLink-G3 and SLink-G3 cards in the VSN970 and VSN900X and
connecting the two cards using the Ex-Cable-G3.
The HLink-G3 and Slink-G3 cards are factory installed into a system as a pair. When connecting
expansion chassis ensure that the pair labelled Link1 are connected using the ExCable-G3, the pair
labelled Link2 are connected together and so on. In the event that this is not possible, connect the
expansion chassis to the host machine and re-install the Datapath Driver Install to reset the pairings.
Fig.8: SLink-G3
Fig.10: HLink-G3
Fig.9: ExCable-G3
When connecting a VSN900X expansion chassis to a VSN970 machine the HLink-G3 card in the VSN970
must be installed into the x8 slot. The SLink-G3 card in the VSN900X should be installed in the PICMG1.3
SBC slot.
Connect the HLink-G3 and SLink-G3 cards using the ExCable-G3.

Filter Maintenance
The system filter is an integral part of the wall controller and as such it needs to be maintained correctly.
Failure to maintain the filter can result in the system overheating and causing it to fail. In normal
operating conditions the filter should be removed and cleaned every 3 months. However, this 3 month
period is a guide only and it can be increased to every 6 months or decreased to one month depending on
the levels of dust in the environment the system is operating in.
It is recommended that the condition of the filter is checked at regular intervals.
The filter can be removed and cleaned whilst the system is in operation, system shutdown is not
necessary.
Note:
Failure to maintain the system filter could result in damage to your system and invalidate the
warranty.
Remove the Filter
Open the front panel door and locate the filter housing screw, remove the screw and lift the filter housing
away from the front panel.

Filter
Remove the filter from the housing and shake it to remove any dust particles, this should not be done in
close proximity to the system to avoid dust ingress. Ideally, the filter should be cleaned using a vacuum
cleaner.
Note: The filter should never be immersed in water or any other cleaning liquid.
For advice on replacement filters, please contact Datapath Ltd.
