Overview
The VS881 Video Switch is a modern control unit that allows you
to conveniently display the video output of eight separate
computer systems on a single monitor, or via a multimedia
projector - thereby eliminating the
unnecessary expense of purchasing a separate monitor for each
computer. The VS881 is perfect for corporate presentations,
company briefings and institutional learning centers.
The VS881 improves on previous video switch models with
enhanced features that include a freely accessible concentrichub design; easy computer selection via push buttons; intelligent
infrared (IR) remote control; and electronic switching technology,
rather than mechanical switching, for reliability and durability.
The VS881 also saves on the space that additional monitors take
up, as well as the extra power costs, and eliminates the
inconvenience and wasted effort involved in constantly moving
around from one computer to another.

Port Selection
Manual Port Up / Port Down
Use the Port Up and Port Down buttons, located on the top of the
VS881 unit, to cycle the video focus to the port you want.
A Port LED changes from ORANGE to GREEN to indicate that
the computer connected to its corresponding port has the video
focus.
IR Port Up / Port Down
The video focus can also be cycled among the computers using
the Port Up and Port Down buttons of the IR Remote Control Unit
(refer to page 10).
Note: The IR Remote Control Unit is used in conjunction with the
external IR Receiver (see the diagram on page 12).
IR Direct Port Selection
Instead of cycling among the individual computers one-by-one, a
computer can be directly selected by pushing the button on the
Remote Control Unit that corresponds to its port number (1-8) on
the main unit.
The selected port’s LED changes from ORANGE to GREEN to
indicate that the computer connected to its corresponding port
has the video focus.
Note: For optimum performance make sure that there is a clear
line-of-site between the handset and the receiver.

Automatic Incoming Signal
Selection
The VS881 supports Automatic Incoming Signal Selection, which
automatically selects the proper input signal for its output port.
The VS881 automatically switches to the port that has signal
input.
If all ports of the VS881 do not have any signal input, the VS881
waits until at least one of the ports gets a signal input and
automatically switches to that port. If two ports get signal inputs,
the VS881 switches to the first port it detects.
