INTRODUCTION

1-1. THE SMART MATRIX OPERATING MODE

Before you start setting up your

Smart MatriX (SMX200)

for the first time, be sure you know what you actually want to do with it. The

Smart MatriX

offers one operating mode, which results in a versatile video production tool for live event staging and fixed installation applications.

* NOTE * :

We recommend resetting the device to its default values every time you set up your shows or events (see the “

Operating The Smart MatriX

” chapter, p28).

Native Matrix Mode

This mode turns your

Smart MatriX

into a true 12 x 2 High End Scaled Matrix, while preserving seamless switching capabilities. Main and Preview outputs can be set to different resolutions and rates. Switching between any of the inputs can be done with the various effects (Cut, Fade, Slides…) and synchronized on both outputs.

1-2. USEFUL TERMS AND DEFINITIONS

BACKGROUND:

a “Background” is a source, typically originating from a computer.

Smart MatriX

enables you to work with live or still (frame) background sources - visually in back of all other sources.

LAYER:

a “Layer” is an image display element (such as a PIP window, Key, Logo(s) or Background) that has an associated visual priority — either in front (or in back) of another layer.

The

Smart MatriX

can simultaneously view no less than 4 layers (2 video, 1 frame & 1 logo, per output).

Smart MatriX

can insert up to 2 PIPs on a live background, plus 2 logos.

PIP:

a “PIP” (Picture In Picture), is a picture, typically of reduced size, which is positioned over another background image or PIP. PIPs can be reduced, enlarged and bordered. PIPs can overlap, depending on their visual priority.

Smart MatriX

allows for Dynamic PIP on the opening and closing of the sequence, vertically or horizontally. A

“Flying” PIP is also possible over the screen with vertical, horizontal or diagonal animation. A PIP is considered as a live layer.

FRAME:

a “Frame” is a full screen image which is selected from one of the eight still frames which you can capture with the

Smart MatriX

. A Frame can be flash captured and imported from any video or computer source plugged into the machine.

LOGO:

a “Logo” is a part of screen image that can be flash captured and imported from any Video or

Computer source, by keying or image cut-out.

Smart MatriX

can record up to 8 still logos. They can be positioned anywhere on the screen. An animated logo is also available on the eighth input.

KEYING:

a “Key” is an electronic process whereby an image is electronically superimposed over another source or background, by cutting out either a color (Chroma Key), or its brightness or luminance levels (luma

Key). Keys are typically used for titles, logos and special effects.

Smart MatriX

allows to use a live source with green or blue background and to key it over any other live input.

HDCP compliance

If you want to use HDCP content from your sources, be sure pluging HDCP compliant screens or projectors.

If it’s not the case, the output image could be disabled.

When displaying HDCP protected sources on non HDCP compliant equipment, the following message will be displayed on the device VFD screen:

“Due to HDCP content, non HDCP screens cannot display protected sources”

Your screen will go to black without displaying the HDCP input image, or partially layer out non HDCP content.

Concerning the DVI inputs, a specific feature allows enable/disable the HDCP receiver for the input chosen.

It can be very useful especially when using a Mac:

Input Menu > DVI# > HDCP detection

The output status can provides you all information about the output in real time.

This feature is particularly needed when HDCP is used with long cable to be sure that the communication is well handled.

Don’t forget that HDCP content can be displayed only through Digital link like DVI.

The SDI and the HD15 output don’t support the HDCP protection.

HD15: 1x Universal Analog input on female HD15 connector.

Analog Computer Sources

COMPOSITE VIDEO SOURCES:

The Composite Video signal, usually called COMPOSITE or VIDEO, is available on most video equipment (VCR,

DVD, CAMCORDER…), but is also the lowest in picture quality. The video standard of this signal can be NTSC, PAL or SECAM. The signal is transmitted on a single coaxial cable, and is connected to the video equipment with an

HD15 connector.

For inputs #1 to #4: connect a 1x BNC from your composite source, to the HD15 input of the device.

G

S.VIDEO SOURCES:

The S.VIDEO signal, also called Y/C, HI-8™, or S.VHS™, is available on DVD players and high quality VCRs (S.VHS).

The S.VIDEO signal in which the Luminance (Y) and

Chrominance (C) information are separately transmitted, gives a higher quality picture than the Composite video signal. The S.VIDEO connector is usually a 4-pin Mini-DIN connector also called Oshiden™ connector.

For inputs #1 to #4: connect a 2x BNC from your S.VIDEO,

Y (G/Y) & C (R/R-Y), to the HD15 input of the device.

Composite Source

R G

COMPONENT VIDEO SOURCES:

The Component Video signal, also called YUV

(Y, Pr, Pb) or BETACAM™ is widely used in broadcasting and is available on high-quality DVD players. The COMPONENT signal is transmitted with

3 coaxial cables, and also has a better quality picture than

COMPOSITE and S.VIDEO signals. The COMPONENT connectors are usually RCA (x3), or BNC (x3).

For inputs #1 to #4: connect a HD15 to 3x BNC cable between the HD15 connector of the device and your

Component source.

RGBS VIDEO SOURCES:

This signal is widely used in broadcasting and is available on European DVD player. The RGB/S signal is transmitted with 4 coaxial cables, and also has a better picture quality than COMPOSITE and S.VIDEO signals. The RGB/S connectors are usually BNC connectors for Broadcasting equipment, and SCART connector for DVD players.

For inputs #1 to #4: connect a HD15 to 4x BNC cable between the HD15 connector of the device and your

RGB/S source.

Don’t forget to press the correct Matrix # button before pressing the Layer selection button, in order to be sure doing the manipulation on the correct output.

Working with Cut, Fade or Transitions

All the transitions (Cut, Fade or Transistions) are available in the native Matrix M ode. Although the Matrix

Mode is activated, you will be able to perform powerful transition effects seamlessly. It can depend on your configuration.

The

Smart MatriX

has 4 scalers, to understand how your effect will be performed, you need to know how many scalers are used on your outputs. Don’t forget that you always need one free scaler to perform clean transition. Example:

1 background live on each output → 2 scalers used → 2 seamless transitions

1 background line on each output + 1 PIP on output #1 → 3 scalers used → 1 seamless transition available only on output #2 but the output #1 with a background live + 1 PIP will not be seamless transition (ie: Fade through black)

1 background frame on each output + 2 PIP on each outputs → 4 scalers used →

NO

seamless transition (ie: fade through black)

The background Frame and the logos are not considerated as live layers and are not counted as using a scaler.

Opening transitions and closing Live Layers

When transitioning live layers, depending on how many scalers are in use, the

SMX200

TAKE function will act in one of 3 different ways when transitioning the Next Preset (Preview) to the Current Preset (Main):

• Take 1- shot: Case #1

- There are enough scalers for making a transition

- All inputs are locked on to scalers

- There are no constraints for closing

before

the Take

- All opening and closing transitions can be performed simultaneously.

• Take 2- shot: Case #2

- There are enough scalers for making a transition

- All inputs are locked on to scalers before the Take

- There are no constraints for closing

during

the Take

- All the necessary closing transition are performed to free occupied scalers and then the

SMX200

performs all openings.

• Take sequenced- shot: Case #3

- There are not enough scalers for making a transition

- All inputs are not locked on to scalers

- All the necessary closing transitions are performed to free occupied scalers. The

SMX200

locks on to new sources and performs all openings.

36

Working with PIP

The PIPs are used in the same way as other units. A source has to be selected to activate the PIP settings.

Each PIP has its own settings, PIP 1 on output # 1 is not linked to PIP 1 on output # 2 in terms of settings.

The output #1 and #2 will be the same. All changes on the output #1 will be affected to the output #2. Layers will have the same position and size.

OUTPUT #1 OUTPUT #2 OUTPUT #1 OUTPUT #2

3-

Copy & H.pos Flip mode:

the output #2 will be exactly the same as the output #1 except the fact that the selected layer will have its H position flipped (standard Mirror mode).

OUTPUT #1 OUTPUT #2 OUTPUT #1 OUTPUT #2

4- Copy&H.Flip all modes:

the output #2 will be exactly the same as the output #1 except the fact that the selected layer will have its H position and data flipped.

OUTPUT #1 OUTPUT #2 OUTPUT #1 OUTPUT #2

*NOTE*:

Remember that to simplify the use of this feature, you need to manipulate the Output #1. While in mirror mode, the Output #2 will follow the desired steps.

*NOTE*:

Every change on the Output #2 will have an effect only on the Output #2, but remember that if a change occurs on the Output #1 after that, the Output #2 will update automatically to match output #1 (in mode 2/3/4).

Working with DSK (Chroma / Luma key)

DSK Mode must be used with remote controllers specifically designed to control the SMX200.

- SMX200 allows to use a live source with green or blue (or any color) background and to key it over another live input.

- Background is removed and replaced by another source.

- Title can be keyed (DSK) on Analog or Digital Sources.

+ =>

To use K eying, first select a source in the desired layer:

Layer button -

>

source number button

Then in the main menu, select the Keying/Titling menu.

You now have several choices to key your sources. The luma Key and the Chroma Key based on the luma pixel values and the Chroma pixel values and for both an additional Titling menu which can be useful to choose the transparency value of your keying.

Keying/Titling menu -

>

Type menu -

>

Select your keying type

Once your keying mode is selected, the

Smart MatriX

provides you some keying advance setting:

For Luma Key

:

Luma Keying is used to key from a particular luminous intensity. It produces a hard edged key based on intensity, which is most suitable for titling effects. You can choose to key things that are extremely dark or extremely bright and keep everything in between, or invert to key only things that are of a me dium intensity.

The black and white levels define where to begin the keying. In the range 0 to 255, 0 represents no luminance, or black and 255 represents full luminance, or white.

-

Level Black:

As the Black Level is changed from 0 to 255, things that are black are first keyed out, followed by dark grey, then light grey, and so forth, until the entire picture is keyed out at 255.

-

Level White:

As the White Level is changed from 255 to 0, things that are white are first keyed out, followed by light grey, then dark grey, and so forth, until the entire picture is keyed out at 0.

Non-Inverted Mode

Keyed Away

Visible Picture

Keyed Away

Black level White level

For Chroma Key

:

Chroma Keying is used to key from a particular color. It produces a soft-edged key which is most suitable for moving images and “weatherman” style applications.

Color grabber:

Select Chroma Key menu -

>

Select Color grabber menu

Using a crosshair, you can select a particular hue based on what is on screen. Once you have adjusted the crosshairs to a desired position, press set/enter to capture the color value at that instant. You can then adjust the other parameters such as Tolerance to further refine your key.

Manual Setting:

Select Chroma Key menu -

>

Manual Settings menu

R,G,B

:

These controls allow you to manually select a hue, defined by its Red, Green, and Blue values as you can find in Windows (Paint software).

Tolerance:

The Tolerance parameter allows you to expand your key color selection to include colors which are similar to the selected value. A tolerance of 1 will select only the desired hue, whereas a tolerance of

255 will select nearly all hues.

Black Level:

This option permits adjustment of the luminance levels of the keyed hue. The Black Level is the lumi nance lower bound. Colors in the selected hue range with a luminance brighter than the Black level but darker than the White level will be considered part of the key.

White Level:

This option permits adjustment of the luminance levels of the keyed hue. The White Level is the lumi nance lower bound. Colors in the selected hue range with a luminance brighter than the Black level but darker than the White level will be considered part of the key.

Titling alpha:

If you have selected one of the two Titling mode, the titling menu appears.

This option places a transparent black backdrop behind the entire layer to which the key is applied. This effect is useful for using bright titles on bright backgrounds, such as clouds.

Invert keying:

By default, this mode is disabled. When this mode is activated, the key selection will remain on screen, and all other portions of the image will be keyed away. For example, you would see the green screen behind the actor, while the actor would be keyed away.

REMOTE CONTROL SOFTWARE

5-1. THE SMART MATRIX RCS

RCS presentation

The RCS will give you a powerful tool to exploit all the features of your

SMX200

at distance. By LAN, or RS-

232, you will be able to do exactly the same manipulation as you could do from the front panel. User-friendly and easy-to-use, you will take the hand quickly with it.

How to use the RCS ?

You have to install the software on a Computer and have a LAN board or RS-232 link to use the RCS. After the installation, launch the program and proceed to the network establishment.

Software installation

1. Connect you on

www.analogway.com

.

2. In the menu, select [ Technical Support ] menu, then click on [ Remote Control Software ], select the name of your device and click on [ Download ].

3. Click on [ Open with ] or [ Register the file ], select the

.exe

file.

4. Follow the Windows installation instructions.

Software overview

The RCS software for your

Smart MatriX

is composed of several easily identified sections. The tabs menu allows you to navigate through the equivalent of the

Smart MatriX

front panel menu items (see also “The

Smart MatriX

Menu” p.30). The green window of the RCS represents your Preview window, and can be used to parameter sources, frames, layers and logos directly by clicking on the corresponding button, then navigating through the different available tabs. The red window of the RCS represents your Main window, and can also be used much like the front panel of the

Smart MatriX.

Create user presets directly in the RCS main window by clicking on one of the four available Preset icons and setting up your preset in the Preview window. Clear unwanted steps with the clear button, reload a fresh copy of your screen via the Reload Main button, make smooth takes directly with your mouse or trackpad with the virtual

T-bar. The Take button will allow you to view any change made to your P review screen on your main screen.

Analog Way

engineers have even implemented a Stepback button to quickly move back to your previous setup in the case of a manipulation error. The status section allows for easy monitoring of the connection status.

The RCS software for your

Smart MatriX

can be viewed as the software version of the

Smart MatriX

front panel menu section. It allows you to quickly access all of the

Smart MatriX

functions via a single page interface, and easily edit your settings directly from your laptop or PC.

Before starting with the RCS software, you must establish a connection from your laptop to the

Smart MatriX

you wish to run.

Smart MatriX.

6. Click on the “Inputs” tab to return to the main screen.

Source output configuration

1. Click on the “Outputs” tab of the RCS.

2. Select the type of plug which is connected to outputs # 1 &

# 2 of your

Smart MatriX

by clicking in the appropriate field in

Analog Type or DVI Type for both Main and Preview outputs.

3. Select the appropriate output format and output rate.

4. Click on the “Outputs” tab to return to the main screen.

The

Output

menu also allows you to generate test patterns. The test patterns available through the

Output

menu let you quickly and reliably setup your projectors.

59

60

Working with PIPs

The

Smart MatriX

allows users to manipulate 2 PIPs (Picture In Picture) which you can move, size, crop or zoom, apply transparency or transitions to.

PIP configuration

1. Click on the

Image

tab of the RCS interface. The empty

Image

screen will appear on screen.

2. By clicking on the drop-down menu in the Preview section, situated next to the layer you wish to use as a PIP, you will access the image parameters of the PIP source you select

( # 1 to # 12).

7-3. EXTERNAL PROGRAMMING

If you need to use your own Software Control program from a PC or automation, the device allows communication through an ASCII code protocol. All commands can be found on the CD-Rom shipped with the

Smart MatriX

in the “External Programming” file.

All

Analog Way

products equipped with a RS-232 input are compatible with Crestron, AMX, Medialon, and most major control systems. TCP/IP control ports are also available on most Analog

Way products, as standard or as options.

To control a

Smart MatriX

with an External Remote Controller (PC

Software Control - Touch Pad Controller…) follow the indications below:

1. First establish a RS-232 communication between the Remote

Control Software and the

Smart MatriX

, in order to setup the

LAN parameters of the product.

2. In the “Control” - “

Smart MatriX

LAN Setup” menu, configure the connection of the

Smart MatriX

in UDP mode and setup the

Local and Remote Addresses as well as the Local and Remote

Ports in concordance with your Network.

3. Configure the TCP/IP address of your External Remote

Controller.

In example: 192.168.000.001

4. Setup the UDP connection of your External Remote Controller in concordance with your Network.

For example on the Remote Software in the “Control” - “RS232/

LAN Setup” - “LAN/Setup” menu :

5. Setup the LAN parameters in UDP mode in the “Console” - “LAN

Setup” menu.

For example: RK Address: 192.168.000.002

Remote Address: 192.168.000.010

Gateway Address:

RK Port:

Remote Port:

Netmask:

192.168.000.001

10500

10500

255.255.255.000

6. Select the LAN communication port in the remote controller console - “RS232/LAN port” menu.

7. You can now control your

Smart MatriX

with an External Remote

Controller.
