Overview
The Kramer VS-41HD is a true 4x1 switcher 1 for standard definition 2 / high
definition 3 SDI signals that lets you distribute any one of the four inputs to
two identical outputs. The VS-41HD features:
• Input and output signals on BNC connectors and selector buttons
that automatically light up in different colors—red, when the
VS-41HD detects a ‘standard definition’ signal, or blue, when it
detects a ‘high definition’ signal
• Reclocking and equalization on each input
• Distribution of digital information (embedded audio, Teletext, time code
and so on) during the vertical interval period
• The ability to switch genlocked video signals according to timing of the
GENLOCK reference input. Switching according to the Bi-level or
Tri-level Genlock input according to SMPTE RP-168 4
• Front panel locking, and an OFF button to disconnect the output
The VS-41HD is housed in a 19" 1U rack mountable enclosure and is fed
from a 100-240 VAC universal switching power supply. It can be controlled
via the front panel buttons, infrared remote control transmitter, remotely, by
RS-232 or RS-485 serial commands transmitted by a touch screen system, PC,
or other serial controller, as well as via the ETHERNET and/or remote contact
closure for forced operation.
To achieve the best performance:
• Connect only good quality connection cables, thus avoiding interference,
deterioration in signal quality due to poor matching, and elevated noise
levels (often associated with low quality cables)
• Avoid interference from neighboring electrical appliances that may
adversely influence signal quality and position your Kramer VS-41HD
away from moisture, excessive sunlight and dust
4
Your VS-41HD 4x1 HD/SD-SDI Switcher / DA
Figure 1, Table 1, and Table 2 define the VS-41HD 4x1 HD/SD-SDI Switcher / DA.
1 Switching is implemented during the vertical interval period according to the SMPTE RP-168 standard, when using
synchronized SDI sources
2 Standard Definition (SD) means an NTSC or PAL compatible video format, consisting of 480 (for NTSC) or 576 (for PAL)
lines of interlaced video
3 High Definition (HD) in this case includes 480p, 576p, 720p and 1080i (all @ 50/60Hz); 1080p @ 24/25Hz; as well as the
1/1.0001 refresh rates
4 The sources must be genlocked to the GENLOCK input in order to switch cleanly

Installing on a Rack
This section describes what to do before installing in a rack and how to rack
mount.
Before Installing in a Rack
Before installing in a rack, be sure that the environment is
within the recommended range:
Operating temperature range +5° to +45° C (41° to 113° F)
Operating humidity range
10 to 90% RHL, non-condensing
Storage temperature range
-20° to +70° C (-4° to 158° F)
Storage humidity range
5 to 95% RHL, non-condensing
!
How to Rack Mount
To rack-mount a machine:
1. Attach both ear brackets to the
machine. To do so, remove the
screws from each side of the
machine (3 on each side), and
replace those screws through the
ear brackets.
CAUTION!!
When installing on a 19" rack, avoid hazards by taking
care that:
1. It is located within the recommended environmental
conditions, as the operating ambient temperature of a
closed or multi unit rack assembly may exceed the
room ambient temperature.
2. Once rack mounted, enough air will still flow around
the machine.
3. The machine is placed straight in the correct
horizontal position.
4. You do not overload the circuit(s). When connecting
the machine to the supply circuit, overloading the
circuits might have a detrimental effect on overcurrent
protection and supply wiring. Refer to the appropriate
nameplate ratings for information. For example, for
fuse replacement, see the value printed on the
product label.
5. The machine is earthed (grounded) in a reliable way
and is connected only to an electricity socket with
grounding. Pay particular attention to situations where
electricity is supplied indirectly (when the power cord
is not plugged directly into the socket in the wall), for
example, when using an extension cable or a power
strip, and that you use only the power cord that is
supplied with the machine.
6
2. Place the ears of the machine
against the rack rails, and insert the
proper screws (not provided)
through each of the four holes in the
rack ears.
Note that:
• In some models, the front panel
may feature built-in rack ears
• Detachable rack ears can be
removed for desktop use
• Always mount the machine in the
rack before you attach any cables
or connect the machine to the
power
• If you are using a Kramer rack
adapter kit (for a machine that is not
19"), see the Rack Adapters user
manual for installation instructions
(you can download it at:

I6…I0 – “INPUT”.
When switching (ie. instruction codes 1 and 2), the INPUT (7 bits) is set as the input number which is to be switched.
Similarly, if switching is done via the machine’s front-panel, then these bits are set with the INPUT NUMBER which was
switched. For other operations, these bits are defined according to the table.
3rd BYTE:
Bit 7 – Defined as 1.
O6…O0 – “OUTPUT”.
When switching (ie. instruction codes 1 and 2), the OUTPUT (7 bits) is set as the output number which is to be switched.
Similarly, if switching is done via the machine’s front-panel, then these bits are set with the OUTPUT NUMBER which was
switched. For other operations, these bits are defined according to the table.
4th BYTE:
Bit 7 – Defined as 1.
Bit 5 – Don’t care.
OVR – Machine number override.
M4…M0 – MACHINE NUMBER.
Used to address machines in a system via their machine numbers. When several machines are controlled from a single serial
port, they are usually configured together with each machine having an individual machine number. If the OVR bit is set, then
all machine numbers will accept (implement) the command, and the addressed machine will reply.
For a single machine controlled via the serial port, always set M4…M0 = 1, and make sure that the machine itself is
configured as MACHINE NUMBER = 1.

NOTE 1 - When the master switcher is reset, (e.g. when it is turned on), the reset code is sent to the PC. If this code is sent to
the switchers, it will reset according to the present power-down settings.
NOTE 2 - These are bi-directional definitions. That is, if the switcher receives the code, it will perform the instruction; and if
the instruction is performed (due to a keystroke operation on the front panel), then these codes are sent. For example, if the
HEX code
01
85
88
83
was sent from the PC, then the switcher (machine 3) will switch input 5 to output 8. If the user switched input 1 to output 7
via the front panel keypad, then the switcher will send HEX codes:
41
81
87
83
to the PC.
When the PC sends one of the commands in this group to the switcher, then, if the instruction is valid, the switcher replies by
sending to the PC the same four bytes that it was sent (except for the first byte, where the DESTINATION bit is set high).
NOTE 4 - The reply to a "REQUEST" instruction is as follows: the same instruction and INPUT codes as were sent are
returned, and the OUTPUT is assigned the value of the requested parameter. For example, if the present status of a Video
Output 1 is 3, then the reply to the HEX code
05
80
would be HEX codes
45
80
81
81
83
81
NOTE 9 - An error code is returned to the PC if an invalid instruction code was sent to the switcher, or if a parameter
associated with the instruction is out of range. This code is also returned to the PC if an RS-232 instruction is sent while the
machine is being programmed via the front panel. Reception of this code by the switcher is not valid.
NOTE 13 - This is a request to identify the switcher/s in the system. If the OUTPUT is set as 0, and the INPUT is set as 1, 2,
5 or 7, the machine will send its name. The reply is the decimal value of the INPUT and OUTPUT. For example, for a 2216,
the reply to the request to send the audio machine name would be (HEX codes):
7D
96
90
81 (i.e. 128dec+ 22dec for 2nd byte, and 128dec+ 16dec for 3rd byte).
If the request for identification is sent with the INPUT set as 3 or 4, the appropriate machine will send its software version
number. Again, the reply would be the decimal value of the INPUT and OUTPUT - the INPUT representing the number in
front of the decimal point, and the OUTPUT representing the number after it. For example, for version 3.5, the reply to the
request to send the version number would be (HEX codes):
7D
83
85
81 (i.e. 128dec+ 3dec for 2nd byte, 128dec+ 5dec for 3rd byte).
17
Kramer Protocol 2000
If the OUTPUT is set as 1, then the ASCII coding of the lettering following the machine’s name is sent. For example, for the
VS-7588YC, the reply to the request to send the first suffix would be (HEX codes):
7D
D9
C3
81 (i.e. 128dec+ ASCII for “Y”; 128dec+ ASCII for “C”).
NOTE 16 - The reply to the “REQUEST WHETHER PANEL IS LOCKED” is as in NOTE 4 above, except that here the
OUTPUT is assigned with the value 0 if the panel is unlocked, or 1 if it is locked.
