Extron electronics Multi-Graphic Processor MGP 464 HD-SDI Setup guide

MGP Series Setup Guide
The MGP Series are multi-window video signal processors that can display
multiple video sources on a single screen in picture-in-picture or picture-bypicture format. The processors can switch among inputs as well as picture
controls and presets. The available models are listed below. The MGP 464
models display up to four windows; the MGP 462xi models display one or two.
•
MGP 464/MGP 462xi — Standard models with BNC input connectors that accept RGB, component video,
S-video, or composite video
•
MGP 464 DI/MGP 462xi DI — An MGP 464/462xi with a DVI input card installed, providing four DVI input
connectors.
•
MGP 464 HD-SDI/MGP 462xi HD-SDI — An MGP 464/462xi with two HD-SDI inputs and two DVI inputs.
•
MGP 464W/MGP 464W DI — Designed for WindoWall™ video wall systems and available in sets of two or
three processors. These models have no front panel controls and are controllable only via software. Each MGP
displays up to four windows.
This guide provides procedures for installing all
MGP 464 and MGP 462xi models, and for configuring all
models except the MGP 464W series. To configure the
MGP 464W models (done via software only), refer to the
WindoWall Console help file or the WindoWall Console
Quick Reference card.
Installation
1.
Install the four rubber feet on the bottom of the
MGP, or mount the unit using the supplied rack
mounting brackets.
MBD 249
2.
Turn off power to the input and output devices, and
remove the power cords from them.
3.
Connect the input sources to the MGP's BNC, DVI,
and/or HD-SDI input connectors. The inputs can
accept the following signal types:

DVI inputs 1, 2, 3, and 4 — These inputs can be used instead of, or in combination with,
analog inputs 1 through 4. (However, the MGP cannot process input from two
different source devices connected to DVI and BNC connectors with the same input
number — for example, input 1— at the same time). The DVI inputs are available
only on the MGP 464/462xi DI and HD-SDI models.
INPUT 1-DVI-D
N Analog is not available on these DVI-I connectors.
HD-SDI inputs 1 and 2 — These inputs can be used instead of, or in combination with,
analog inputs 1 and 2. The HD-SDI inputs are only on the MGP 464/462xi HD-SDI.
INPUT 1-HD-SDI
N Standard definition SDI is not supported on these HD-SDI inputs.

DVI Background input — DVI for live background video only (available on all models).
The two or four MGP windows are displayed in front of this DVI image. When
a DVI background is used, the MGP output is locked to the input rate of the DVI
background. This input is not scaled. Analog is not available on this DVI-I connector.
DVI BACKGROUND
N This input connector can be used only to receive the background image. The input is not scaled or
processed. To process DVI input signals, you must use the MGP 464/462xi DI or HD-SDI models.
Virtual inputs (not supported on WindoWall models) —
Component video, S-video, or composite video. These
virtual inputs can be configured via Windows®-based control
software, SIS™ (Simple Instruction Set) commands, or the
embedded Web pages only. In each column of connectors,
you can connect inputs as follows:

If the MGP will be connected to a computer or to a host controller for remote control, connect an RS-232 cable
from the host to the MGP’s 9-pin D RS-232/422 rear panel connector or the front panel 2.5 mm TRS Config port;
and/or use an RJ-45 network cable to connect the MGP’s rear panel LAN port to a network.
6.
Plug the MGP, input devices, and output devices into a grounded AC source, and power on all devices.
Front Panel Buttons (Non-WindoWall Models Only)
The MGP 464 (shown below) and MGP 462xi front panels (non-WindoWall models only) contain the following buttons
to control and configure the MGP. When you press a button, the LCD panel displays the settings that you can change.
