CAUTION
HDMI is a very complex technology requiring continuous authentication of the signal
and the same video resolution and audio settings on all electronic equipment in the
system. When there are multiple sources and displays, the video resolution and
audio setting on all connected units must be adjusted to correspond with that of the
display having the lowest video and audio capability.

FEATURES
INTRODUCTION
The Evolution by Vanco EVMX4444 HDMI 4x4 Matrix Selector Switch allows 4 HDMI
sources to be distributed to up to 4 displays simultaneously. Have multiple sources
displayed simultaneously on any display or have a single source duplicated on multiple
displays, flexibility for the perfect solution. With an output bandwidth of 6.75 Gbps over
HDMI, the EVMX4444 is capable of full 1080p HD video and HD multi-channel audio
distribution with simple control using the front panel or remotely via IR Receivers at display
locations. Also features EDID management, which allows and encourages source and
display “handshake” for seamless integration. In addition, EVMX4444 is also equipped with
RS-232 and LAN connectivity which allows for firmware updates and third party integration.
For reliable, no-nonsense HDMI distribution and control on a budget, over short distances,
the EVMX4444 Matrix Selector Switch is a great choice for any application.

EDID
The EDID switch allows for EDID learning or to pre-set an EDID to encourage a “handshake” between the
display and source.
The EDID learning function is only necessary whenever any display on the HDMI output port is not outputting
audio and video properly. Because the HDMI source devices and displays may have various level of capability in
playing audio and video, the general principle is that the source device will output the lowest standards in audio
format and video resolutions to be acceptable among all HDMI displays connected. In this case, a 720p stereo
HDMI signal output would be probably the safest choice. The EDID function can also force the matrix to learn
the EDID of the lowest capable HDMI display among others to make sure all displays are capable to play the
HDMI signals normally.
There are two methods for EDID Learning as shown below:
1. IR Remote Control: Please refer to the Operation Control – IR Remote Control
section
2. Software Control: Please refer to the Operation Control – EDID section
EDID Settings:
There are eight embedded default EDID settings as shown below,

CONNECTION DIAGRAM
CONNECT AND OPERATE
1. Connect up to 4 sources such as a Blu-Ray Player, game console, A/V Receiver,
Cable or Satellite Receiver, etc. to the HDMI inputs on the unit.
2. Connect the output HDMI ports, starting with ouput 1, to high-definition displays
such as an HDTV or HD projector that use HDMI inputs. Note that high-speed
HDMI cables are recommended for the distances that are required for each
connection.
3. For power, plug in the source first, followed by the Matrix Selector Switcher (power
supply included), followed by each output connected.
4. Power on each device in the same sequence.
At this point each display connected should display the assigned source (input 1 at default when powered
on initially), scroll through each of the sources on each display to ensure everything is in working order. Use
included IR remote at each display receiver to test switching function between sources and IR function itself.
If a display is having difficulty receiving a signal, access the display’s menu and adjust the resolution (lowest to
highest until signal is displayed). A 24 Hz vertical refresh rate may work better than 60 Hz or higher. If the IR
remote function is not responding, check the emitters to ensure they are placed correctly and are plugged into

NOTICE
1. Vanco High Speed HDMI cables are strongly recommended for use with this product
to ensure best results.
2. Incorrect placement of IR Blaster and Receiver may result in the failure of the unit.
Please check carefully before plugging in the IR accessories into the respective IR
sockets.
3. If your HDMI display has multiple HDMI inputs, it is found that the first HDMI input
[HDMI input #1] generally can produce better transmission performance among all
HDMI inputs.

TROUBLE-SHOOTING
1. Best results are usually achieved when the source and display resolutions are the
same. If resolutions differ, the extenders will try to adjust the signal to match the
resolution of the HDTV with the lowest resolution. This will result in a picture with a
lower resolution on the other HDTV sets.
2. If you do not get audio and video, access the “setup” menu on the TV to adjust the
audio and video settings. If the HDMI control circuit cannot establish a handshake,
then there usually will be no audio or video in addition to a blue or black screen with
a statement similar to “this protocol not supported” or “weak signal”.
3. If the above mentioned messages display, reset the receiver by disconnecting the
power supply. You can also disconnect all of the HDMI and power cables, wait 15
minutes for any voltages to decay and then reconnect all of the cables.
4. If you are still encountering issues, attempt the “hot-plug concept. With all of the
HDMI cables disconnected, turn on the source and plug in the HDMI cable into it’s
output, then power up the Vanco unit and plug the HDMI cable into it’s input, finally
turn on the display and plug the HDMI cable from the receiver into it. This activates
all of the devices in corresponding order and results in a signal being plugged into a
device that is on and will attempt to connect the signal.
5. Most of the major source and display manufacturers employ a proprietary control
channel to communicate between devices from the same manufacturer. Sometimes
this can interfere with the HDMI control circuit or the authentication of the signal.
Call the manufacturer if you experience this issue. Sometimes a player, an audio/
video receiver, or a cable/satellite box may not have the latest software update,
usually this can be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website.
6. If you have problems with the IR control circuit, make sure that the IR RX pigtail is
plugged into extender receiver and pointed at the display, and the IR TX pigtail is
attached to the extender sender and pointed at the source.
