Introduction
About this Manual
This manual contains installation, configuration, and operating information for the
Extron CrossPoint 300 Wideband RGBHV Analog Matrix Awitchers.
About the Matrix Switchers
Matrix switchers distribute any input signal to any combination of outputs. The
matrix switchers can route multiple input/output configurations simultaneously.
The matrix switchers are single box solutions to complex wideband video and/or
audio routing applications (figure 1-1). Each input and output is individually
isolated and buffered, and any input(s) can be switched to any one or all outputs
with virtually no crosstalk or signal noise between channels.
The matrix switchers are available in a variety of matrix sizes (the matrix size is the
number of inputs and outputs):
•
CrossPoint 300 84
(8 inputs by 4 outputs)
•
CrossPoint 300 88
(8 inputs by 8 outputs)
•
CrossPoint 300 816
(8 inputs by 16 outputs)
•
CrossPoint 300 124
(12 inputs by 4 outputs)
•
CrossPoint 300 128
(12 inputs by 8 outputs)
•
CrossPoint 300 168
(16 inputs by 8 outputs)
•
CrossPoint 300 1212 (12 inputs by 12 outputs)
•
CrossPoint 300 1616 (16 inputs by 16 outputs)
CrossPoint 300 series switchers offer two models of each matrix size: HV for
switching RGBHV video signals only, and HVA models for switching RGBHV
video and two-channel stereo audio (balanced and unbalanced).
The CrossPoint 300 Series switchers have a video bandwidth of 300 MHz (-3 dB).
All models can also switch RGBS, RGsB, RsGsBs, HDTV, component video,
S-video, and composite video signals.
All HVA models input and output audio on 3.5 mm, 5-pole captive screw
terminals. For all HVA switchers, the audio switching can be either linked with the
video (audio follow) or independent of the video (audio breakaway). Adjustable
input audio gain and attenuation compensates for level differences between audio
inputs.
Each matrix switcher can be remotely controlled via either its rear panel RS-232/
RS-422 port or its front panel Configuration (RS-232) port. The matrix switchers
are programmed with the Extron Simple Instruction Set™ (SIS™). These basic
ASCII commads provide simple control through a control system or PC without
programming long, obscure strings of code. SIS commands can be entered via the
serial port links.
Either serial port can be connected to a control system, a PC, or the Extron
MKP 2000 or MKP 3000 remote control keypads.
The matrix switchers are housed in rack-mountable, metal enclosures with rack
ears to fit in a 19" rack.
•

Definitions
The following terms, which apply to Extron matrix switchers, are used throughout
this manual:
Tie — An input-to-output connection.
Set of ties — An input tied to two or more outputs. (An output can never be tied
to more than one input.)
Configuration — One or more ties or one or more sets of ties.
Current configuration — The configuration that is currently active in the
switcher (also called configuration 0)
Global memory preset — A configuration that has been stored. Up to 32 global
memory presets can be stored in memory. Preset locations are assigned to
the input buttons and output buttons. Up to 20 or 32 (depending on the
number of input and output buttons) presets can be selected from the front
panel for either saving or retrieving. When a preset is retrieved from
memory, it becomes the current configuration. All models have 32 presets;
on models with fewer than 32 input and output buttons, preset numbers that
are too high to be available from the front panel are accessible via serial port
control.
CrossPoint 300 Matrix Switchers • Introduction

Introduction, cont’d
Features
Video — All switchers input and output wideband RGBHV or RGBS video on
female BNC connectors. They can also switch RGsB, RsGsBs, component/
HDTV, S-video, or composite video.
Bandwidth — The CrossPoint 300 Series switchers provide a minimum of
300 MHz (-3 dB) video bandwidth, fully loaded.
Audio inputs (HVA models only) — Input and output stereo audio inputs,
balanced or unbalanced, on 3.5 mm, 5-pole captive screw terminals.
Audio input gain/attenuation (HVA models only) — Individual input audio levels
can be adjusted so there are no noticeable volume differences between
sources. Users can set the input level of audio gain or attenuation
(-18 dB to +24 dB) via either serial port or the front panel.
Audio output volume (HVA models only) — The audio volume of each output can
be displayed and adjusted through a range of full output to completely silent
from the front panel or via serial port control.
Switching flexibility — The CrossPoint 300 series units provide individually
buffered, independent matrix switched outputs with audio follow and audio
breakaway for audio models.
1-4
•
Tie any input to any or all outputs
•
Quick multiple tie — Multiple inputs can be switched to multiple outputs
simultaneously. This allows all displays (outputs) to change from source to
source at the same time.
•
Audio follow — Audio can be switched with its corresponding video input
via front panel or serial port control.
•
Audio breakaway — Audio can be broken away from its corresponding
video signal. This feature allows any audio signal to be selected with any
video signal simultaneously to one or all outputs in any combination. Audio
breakaway switching can be done via front panel control or under serial port
control.
CrossPoint 300 Matrix Switchers • Introduction
Operational flexibility — Operations such as input/output selection, setting of
presets, and adjustment of audio levels can be performed on the front panel
or via either serial port. The serial ports also allow remote control via a PC or
control system.
•
QuickSwitch Front Panel Controller (QS-FPC™) — The front panel
controller supports input and output selection, preset creation and selection,
audio input gain and attenuation, and audio output level. The front panel
features slots for labels that can identify each input and output with text or
graphics.
•
Windows-based control program — For serial port remote control from a PC,
the Extron Windows-based control software provides a graphical interface
and drag-and-drop/point-and-click operation. The Windows-based control
program also has an emulation mode that lets you create a switcher
configuration file at the home office and then download it for use by the
switcher on site.
•
Simple Instruction Set (SIS™) — The remote control protocol uses the Extron
SIS for easy programming and operation.
•
Remote control panels and keypads — The matrix switchers are remote
controllable, using the optional MKP 2000 and MKP 3000 remote control
keypads. The remote control devices are easy to use and provide tactile
buttons for quick selection. Each MKP can be used for input-to-output
switching, one-touch switching for a particular output. The MKP 3000 also
can be used for selection of global presets.
Upgradeable firmware — The firmware that controls all switcher operation can be
upgraded in the field via either serial port without taking the switcher out of
service. Firmware upgrades are available for download on the Extron Web
site, www.extron.com, and they can be installed using the Windows®-based
control program.
Labeling — The Extron Button Label Generator software ships with every Extron
matrix switcher. You can create labels to place above the front panel input
buttons and below the output buttons, with names, alphanumeric characters,
or color bitmaps for easy and intuitive input and output selection.
Alternatively, labels can be made with any Brother® P-Touch™ or comparable
labeler.
Global memory presets — 20 or 32 (depending on the model) global memory
presets are a time-saving feature that lets you set up and store input/output
configurations in advance. You can then recall those configurations, when
needed, with a few simple steps.
Rack mounting — Rack mountable in any conventional 19" wide rack.
Three front panel security lockout modes (Executive modes) — If a matrix
switcher is installed in an open area, where operation by unauthorized
personnel may be a problem, either of two security lockout modes can be
implemented (the third mode is unlocked). When a front panel locked mode
is enabled, a special button combination or SIS command is required to
unlock the front panel controller and make the front panel fully operational.
Power — The matrix switcher’s 100 VAC to 240 VAC, auto-switching, internal
power supply provides worldwide power compatibility.

Installation
Mounting the Switcher
The matrix switchers are housed in rack-mountable, metal enclosures with 19" rack
ears. The amount of vertical rack space required for each switcher is as follows:
•
The CrossPoint 300 84, 88, 124, and 128 are in a 3U-high enclosure.
•
The CrossPoint 300 816, 168, 1212, and 1616 are in a 6U-high enclosure.
UL requirements
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) requirements pertain to the
installation of the matrix switcher into a rack.
1.
Elevated operating ambient temperature — If installed in a closed or multiunit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack
environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consider
installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum
ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
2.
Reduced air flow — Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such
that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not
compromised.
3.
Mechanical loading — Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such
that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
4.
Circuit overloading — Consideration should be given to the connection of
the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of the
circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used
when addressing this concern.
5.
Reliable earthing (grounding) — Reliable earthing of rack-mounted
equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should be given to
supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g.
use of power strips.
Mounting instructions
If desired, rack mount the switcher as follows:
2-2
1.
Insert the switcher into the rack, aligning the holes in the mounting bracket
with those in the rack.
2.
Secure the switcher to the rack using the supplied bolts.

The CrossPoint Series switchers can also switch RGBS, RGsB,
RsGsBs, component video, S-video, or composite video by using
four, three, two, or one BNC(s).
If switching a video format other than RGBHV, ensure that the
same video planes (R, G, B, H/HV, and/or V) are used on the
switcher output as on the input.
2

On the 8 x 16, 16 x 8, 12 x 12, and 16 x 16 matrix sizes, the
connectors for each video plane are grouped together (all of the
red inputs grouped together, all of the green inputs grouped, and
so on). Ensure that you connect the input of each video plane to
the corresponding connector in the correct group (see the
drawing at right).

RGBHV video inputs — Connect RGBHV video inputs to these
BNC connectors for each input.
2
RGBHV video outputs — Connect RGBHV video displays or other devices to
these BNC connectors for each output.
Audio input and output (HVA models only)
By default, the audio ties follow the video ties. Audio breakaway, which can be
activated via the front panel or under RS-232/RS-422 control, allows you to select
from any one of the audio input sources and route it separately from its
corresponding video source. See chapter 3, “Operation”, chapter 4, “Programmer’s
Guide”, and chapter 5, “Matrix Software” for details.

Sync termination switches — The CrossPoint 300 matrix switchers have sync
termination switches on the rear panel for inputs 1 through 4 (figure 2-7).
The switches provide a way to condition non-TTL sync levels greater than
5 Vp-p, enabling the sync to be properly passed from input to selected
output(s). The matrix switchers have two sets of sync termination switches;
one for horizontal or combined sync and a second set for vertical sync.

Figure 2-7 — Sync termination switches
Each switch provides the option of selecting either 510 ohms or 75 ohms.
The 75 ohms position is required only for an input with non-TTL sync, greater
than 5 Vp-p. The normal position is 510 ohms.
An input that produces an out-of-sync display, a display that is rolling
vertically and/or tearing horizontally, could indicate a non-TTL sync input.
A device that is known to output non-TTL sync levels (greater than 5 Vp-p)
should be connected to one of the inputs with sync termination switches, and
the switches for that input should be set to the 75 ohm position. If you are not
sure, check the specifications in the user’s manual for the input device.

This port is RS-232 only, with its default protocols as follows:
• 9600 baud
• no parity
• 1 stop bit
• no flow control
• 8 data bits
The maximum distances from the matrix switcher to the controlling device can
vary up to 200 feet (61 m). Factors such as cable gauge, baud rates,
environment, and output levels (from the switcher and the controlling device)
all affect transmission distance. Distances of about 50 feet (15 m) are typically
not a problem. In some cases the matrix switcher may be capable of serial
communications via RS-232 up to 250 feet (76 m) away.

Definitions
The following terms, which apply to Extron matrix switchers, are used throughout
this manual:
Tie — An input-to-output connection.
Set of ties — An input tied to two or more outputs. (An output can never be tied
to more than one input.)
Configuration — One or more ties or one or more sets of ties.
Current configuration — The configuration that is currently active in the
switcher (also called configuration 0)
Global memory preset — A configuration that has been stored. Up to 32 global
memory presets can be stored in memory. Preset locations are assigned to
the input buttons and output buttons. Up to 20 or 32 (depending on the
number of input and output buttons) presets can be selected from the front
panel for either saving or retrieving. When a preset is retrieved from
memory, it becomes the current configuration. All models have 32 presets;
on models with fewer than 32 input and output buttons, preset numbers that
are too high to be available from the front panel are accessible via
RS-232/RS-422 control.
Input and output buttons
If the switcher has fewer inputs and outputs than input and output buttons
and LEDs, only the buttons and LEDs for which the switcher has an input or
output perform the function of selecting and identifying that input or output.

CrossPoint 300 Matrix Switchers • Operation
3-7
Operation, cont’d
Power indications
Power is applied when the power cord is connected to an AC source. The switcher
performs a self-test that flashes the front panel button indicators and then turns
them off. For HVA models, an error-free power up self-test sequence leaves the
RGBHV LED and the Audio LED on, and all other LEDs unlit.
The current configuration and all presets are saved in non-volatile memory. When
power is applied, the most recent configuration is retrieved. The previous presets
remain intact.
If an error occurs during the self-test, the switcher locks up and does not operate.
If your switcher locks up on power-up, call the Extron S3 Sales & Technical Support
Hotline.
Creating a configuration
The current configuration can be changed using the front panel buttons.
Change the current configuration as follows:
1.
Press the Esc button to clear any input LEDs, output LEDs, or control LEDs
that are lit.
2.
Press the RGBHV button and/or Audio button to configure video, audio, or
both.
3.
Press the input and output buttons to select the desired input and output(s).
To indicate potential ties, output LEDs blink when an output is selected but
not tied to the input.
To indicate current ties, output LEDs light steadily when an input is tied to
the output.
To clear unwanted outputs, press and release the output buttons associated
with the lit LEDs. To indicate potential unties, output LEDs blink when an
output is deselected but not untied from the input.
3-8
4.
Press and release the Enter button to accept the new tie or to break an existing
tie.
5.
Repeat steps 1 through 4 to create additional ties as desired.
•
Only one video input and one audio input can be tied to an output.
•
If a tie is made between an input and an output, and the selected output
was previously tied to another input, the older tie is broken in favor of the
newer tie.
•
To indicate current ties, output LEDs light when an input is selected. To
clear unwanted outputs, press and release the associated output buttons.
•
When configuring video and audio ties, if the Audio LED blinks and the
RGBHV LED is on after selecting an input or output, the LEDs indicate
audio breakaway, meaning that the audio ties are not the same as the video
ties for that input.
•
If an input with no tie is selected, only that input’s LED lights.
•
When the RGBHV and Audio LEDs are on, if an input with an audio tie
but no video tie is selected, the input’s LED lights and the Audio LED blinks.
•
As each output is selected, the associated output LED blinks to indicate a
tentative tie. LEDs for output(s) that were already tied to the input light
steadily. Outputs that are already tied can be left on, along with new
blinking selections, or toggled off by pressing the associated output
button.

32 preset memory addresses. Preset locations are assigned to the input buttons
and output buttons. Up to 20 or 32 (depending on the number of input and
output buttons) presets can be selected from the front panel to be either saved or

The current configuration and all presets are stored in non-volatile
memory. When power is removed and restored, the current configuration
is still active and all presets are retained.
•
When a preset is recalled, it replaces the current configuration, which is
lost unless it is also stored as a preset. The recalled preset overwrites all of
the current configuration ties in favor of the preset configuration ties.

All models have 32 presets; on models with fewer than 32 input and
output buttons, preset numbers that are too high to be available from the
front panel are accessible via serial port control.

Reading the displayed value
This section is a detailed look at reading the output volume display on the
switcher’s front panel. If you do not need to read the exact value of the volume
setting, skip this section.
There are 65 steps of volume attenuation, with 1 dB per step (button push), except
for 0-to-1, which is 22dB. At maximum attenuation, no input LEDs are lit, 85 dB of
attenuation is applied, and the audio output is effectively muted. At no
attenuation, all input LEDs are lit and the output volume is equal to the input
signal plus any gain or attenuation that is applied to that specific input using the
input audio level adjustment. See “Viewing and adjusting the input audio level
(HVA models)”. Other than the minimum and maximum volume, the switchers
indicate the volume differently, depending on number (12 or 16) of input LEDs. See
the table on the next page to read the volume display for each display scheme.
For each display scheme, the input LEDs blink or light sequentially to indicate the
approximate volume of the selected output. Volume is defined as a percentage of
the input audio signal that is applied to the output. From 0% of volume, the first
Esc ( ) button push applies 5.5% of the input audio signal. From 5.5% on, each
Esc ( ) push applies 1.5% more of the input audio signal to the output:
•
Push Esc (

•
•
) button — 5.5% + 1.5% = 7% volume
All switcher input button configurations — Indicated by the Input 1
button blinking slowly.
Push Esc (
) button twice — 7% + 1.5% + 1.5% = 10% volume

Switchers with 12 input buttons — Indicated by the Input 1 button
blinking quickly.

Switchers with 16 input buttons — Indicated by the Input 1 button lit
steadily.
Push Esc (
) button nineteen times — 10% + (19•1.5%) = 38.5% volume

Switchers with 12 input buttons — Indicated by the Input 1 through 4
buttons lit steadily.

Switchers with 16 input buttons — Indicated by the Input 1 through 5
buttons lit steadily and the Input 6 button blinking.
When all input LEDs are lit for any switcher model, the audio output is 100% of the
audio input level.
Another way to view the volume level is to think in terms of the attenuation that is
applied to the output. Attenuation reduction is indicated by the lit or blinking
input LEDs: when fewer input LEDs are lit, attenuation is greater (and the volume
is quieter).
3-30
•
At minimum volume, all input LEDs are unlit and 85 dB of attenuation is
applied to the output. The audio output is effectively muted.
•
The first step of volume increase causes the Input 1 LED to blink (slowly, in
the case of switchers with 12 input buttons). Attenuation is reduced by 22 dB
(63 dB of attenuation is applied to the output).
•
The second step of volume increase reduces the attenuation by an additional
1 dB (62 dB of attenuation is applied to the output).
•
Successive steps of volume increase cause consecutive LEDs to first blink,
then light steadily.

A hard reset returns the switcher to the default (factory) firmware
configuration. The switcher continues to operate using this firmware until
you either cycle power, in which case the switcher begins to use the mostrecently installed firmware update, or install a new firmware update.
Optimizing the Audio (HVA Switchers)
Each individual input audio level can be adjusted within a range of -18 dB to
+24 dB, so there are no noticeable volume differences between sources and for the
best headroom and signal-to-noise ratio. Adjust the audio gain and attenuation as
follows:
3-40
1.
Connect audio sources to all desired inputs and connect the audio outputs to
output devices such as audio players. See “Audio input and output (HVA
models only)”, in chapter 2, “Installation”. For best results, wire all of the
inputs and the outputs balanced.
2.
Power on the audio sources, the switcher, and the audio players.
3.
Switch among the inputs (see “Creating a configuration”, in this chapter),
listening to the audio with a critical ear or measuring the output audio level
with test equipment, such as a VU meter.
CrossPoint 300 Matrix Switchers • Operation
4.
As necessary, adjust the input audio level of each input (see “Viewing and
adjusting the input audio level (HVA models)”, in this chapter) so that the
approximate output level is the same for all selected inputs.
Troubleshooting
This section gives recommendations on what to do if you have problems operating
the switcher, and it describes an actual image problem that Extron has encountered.
General checks
1.
Ensure that all devices are plugged in and powered on. The switcher is
receiving power if the Esc LED flashes one time when you push the Esc
button.
2.
Ensure an active input is selected for output on the switcher.
3.
Ensure that the proper signal format is supplied.
4.
Check the cabling and make corrections as necessary.
5.
Call the Extron S3 Sales & Technical Support Hotline if necessary.
Plasma display S-video problem
Extron has encountered a problem when a matrix switcher with two or more video
planes routes S-video that is output by some video conference codecs. Some codecs
change the DC offset on the chrominance (C) so that it is very different from the
level on the luminance (Y). This can cause a plasma display to come up in the
wrong size mode.
With the matrix switcher taken out of the system, the plasma works fine. It looks
like a problem with the matrix switcher, but it is not. The matrix switcher boosts
the bad codec output, which makes the plasma go to the wrong setting.
Solution: Try placing an Extron video DC block adapter, part #26-495-02, on the
luminance (Y) input to the switcher from the codec.

Configuration Worksheets
Rather than trying to remember the configuration for each preset, use worksheets
to record this information. Make copies of the blank worksheet on page 3-45 and
use one for each preset configuration. The worksheet accommodates all of the
matrix switcher models documented in this manual. Cross out all unused or
inactive inputs and outputs. Use different colors for video and audio.
Worksheet example 1: Entering system equipment
Figure 3-64 shows a worksheet for a CrossPoint 300 128 HVA in a fictional
organization with the system hardware annotated. Inputs 10 and 11 and output 7
have no connections in this organization, so they have been crossed out on the
worksheet. On this example, preset 3 is used for the weekly status meeting.

Serial Ports
The switcher has two serial ports that can be connected to a host device such as a
computer running the HyperTerminal utility, an RS-232 capable PDA, or a control
system. These ports make serial control of the switcher possible. The serial ports
are:
•
The rear panel Remote (RS-232 or RS-422) port, a 9-pin D female connector
• The front panel Configuration (RS-232) port, a 2.5 mm mini stereo jack
The default protocol for both ports is as follows:
• 9600 baud
• no parity
• 8 data bits
• 1 stop bit
• no flow control
The ports can be configured to operate at the 9600, 19200, 38400, or 115200 baud
rate.
These two ports are independent of one another. A front panel Configuration
port connection and a rear panel Remote port connection can both be active at
the same time.
The switcher can operate at 9600, 19200, 38400, or 115200 baud rates, but
Extron recommends leaving these ports at 9600 baud only.

The rear panel Remote port can support either RS-232 or RS-422 serial
communication protocol, and can operate at 9600, 19200, 38400, or 115200
baud rates. See “Selecting the rear panel Remote port protocol and baud rate”
in chapter 3, “Operation”, to configure the rear panel Remote port from the
front panel.

This port is independent of the rear panel Remote port and is not affected by
changes to the rear panel port’s protocol. This front panel port’s protocol can
be changed, under SIS command control only. See the Command/Response
table for IP SIS commands, later in this chapter, to configure both ports under
SIS control.
Host-to-Switcher Instructions
The switcher accepts SIS (Simple Instruction Set) commands through either serial
port. SIS commands consist of one or more characters per command field. They do
not require any special characters to begin or end the command character sequence.
Each switcher response to an SIS command ends with a carriage return and a line
feed (CR/LF = ), which signals the end of the response character string. A string
is one or more characters.

Switcher-Initiated Messages
When a local event such as a front panel operation occurs, the switcher responds by
sending a message to the host. The switcher-initiated messages are listed below
(underlined).
(c) Copyright 2007, Extron Electronics, CP 300 450 MAV IP, Vx.xx, 60-nnn-nn
The switcher initiates the copyright message when it is first powered on. Vx.xx is
the firmware version number and 60-nnn-nn is the switcher part number.
Qik
The switcher initiates the Qik message when a front panel switching operation or
preset recall has occurred.
Sprnn
The switcher initiates the Spr message when a memory preset has been saved from
the front panel. “nn” is the preset number.
Rprnn
The switcher initiates the Rpr message when a memory preset has been recalled
from the front panel. “nn” is the preset number.
Innn Audxx
The switcher initiates the Aud message when a front panel input audio level
change has occurred. “nn” is the input number and “xx” is the dB level.
Vmtnn•x
The switcher initiates the Vmt message when a video output mute is toggled on or
off from the front panel. “nn” is the output number, • is a space, and “x” is the
mute status: 1 = on, 0 = off.
Amtnn•x
The switcher initiates the Amt message when an audio output mute is toggled on
or off from the front panel. “nn” is the output number, • is a space, and “x” is the
mute status: 1 = on, 0 = off.
Exen
The switcher initiates the Exe message when front panel lock is toggled on or off
from the front panel. “n” is the front panel lock status: 1 = on, 0 = off.

Switcher Error Responses
When the switcher receives an SIS command and determines that it is valid, it
performs the command and sends a response to the host device. If the switcher is
unable to perform the command because the command is invalid or contains
invalid parameters, the switcher returns an error response to the host. The error
response codes are:
E01 — Invalid input channel number (too large)
E10 — Invalid command
E11 — Invalid preset number
E12 — Invalid output number (too large)
E13 — Invalid value (out of range)
E14 — Illegal command for this configuration
E17 — Timeout (caused only by direct write of global presets)
E22 — Busy
E25 — Device not present
E28 — Bad filename/File not found
Using the Command/Response Table
The command/response tables begin on page 4-7. Lower case letters are acceptable
in the command field except where indicated for the gain and attenuation
commands. The table below shows the hexadecimal equivalent of each ASCII
character used in the command/response table.
Symbols are used throughout the table to represent variables. Command and
response examples are shown throughout the table.

Save, recall, and directly write presets
•
If the user tries to recall a preset that is not saved, the matrix switcher responds with the
error code E11.
•
The following characters are invalid in preset names:
~ , @ = ‘ [ ] { } < > ’ “ ; : | \ and ?.

Command character is a comma.
Save current ties as preset 9.
Command character is a period.
Recall preset 5, which becomes
the current configuration.
Direct write process —
The direct write of a global preset should always be preceded by a clear global preset
command of that same preset number, as shown below. In a directly-written preset, each output
position’s tied input (or no tied input) remains unchanged unless overwritten or cleared.
If you do not clear a global preset number before you directly write a global preset to that
number, ties that are part of the previous version of the specified presets with the same number
can unexpectedly become part of the newly-created preset.

Matrix Switchers Control Program
The Windows-based Extron Matrix Switchers Control Program communicates with
the switcher via the rear panel Remote RS-232/RS-422 port and the front panel
Configuration (RS-232) port to provides an easy way to set up ties and sets of ties.
The program is compatible with Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Installing the software
The program is contained on the Extron Software Products CD-ROM, disk B.
Install the software as follows:
For full functionality, install both of the following programs:
1.
•
The Matrix Switchers Control Program
•

Uninstall MATRIX Switcher
The CrossPoint 300 switcher can support remote control via either the rear
panel Remote RS-232/RS-422 port or the front panel Configuration port.
Remote RS-232/RS-422 port — The port can be configured for either the
RS-232 or RS-422 serial communication protocol and operate at the 9600,
19200, 38400, or 115200 baud rate. See “Selecting the rear panel Remote port
protocol and baud rate” in chapter 3, “Operation”, to configure the rear panel
port from the front panel.
Configuration port — The port supports RS-232 serial communication
protocol only. The port can operate at the 9600, 19200, 38400, or 115200 baud
rate, but Extron recommends leaving this port at the 9600 baud rate. See
the Set serial port parameters command on page 4-12 to configure either port
using an SIS command.
Using the software
Many items found in the Matrix Switcher+ Control Program are also accessible via
front panel controls (see chapter 3, “Operation”) and under SIS control (see
chapter 4, “Programmer’s Guide”). The Matrix Switcher+ Help Program provides
information on settings and on how to use the control program.

Updating the firmware
The firmware upgrade utility provides a way to replace the firmware that is coded
on the switcher’s control board without taking the switcher out of service.
The Firmware Loader must be installed on your computer to perform this
operation. Extron recommends that you install this program when you install
the Matrix Switchers Control Program. If you did not, it can be downloaded
from the Extron Web site, www.extron.com, and installed separately.
Update the switcher firmware as follows:
1.
Visit the Extron web site, www.extron.com, click the Download Center tab,
and then click the Firmware link (figure 5-6). Select the appropriate firmware
file to download and copy it to your computer. Note the folder to which you
save the firmware file.
Figure 5-6 — Location of firmware upgrade files
2.
In the Windows Explorer or other file browser, double-click the downloaded
executable (*.exe) file) to self-extract the firmware file.
3.
Connect a Windows-based computer to either switcher serial port or the
switcher LAN port. See chapter 2, “Installation”, for more details.
4.
Start the Matrix Switchers Control Program. See “Using the software” in this
chapter, steps 1 through 3, starting on page 5-3.

CrossPoint 300 Matrix Switchers • Matrix Software
8.
Click the Upload button. A status bar, which shows the progress of the
upload, appears in the Firmware Loader window (figure 5-8). The firmware
upload to the switcher may take several minutes.
Figure 5-8 — Firmware Loader status indicator bar, switcher reset, and
firmware update
Once the status bar has progressed fully from left to right, the firmware loader
utility resets the switcher (figure 5-8).
If the firmware loader utility exits before the status bar has progressed
completely across the indicator window, try using a control cable with only
pins 2, 3, and 5 connected. If necessary, modify the cable by removing pins or
cutting wires.
9.
When prompted, confirm that the firmware version displayed in the firmware
loader is correct. Click Ok in the Firmware Update prompt window.
10.
Click the Exit button to exit the firmware loader utility.
The firmware loader utility increases the serial port’s baud rate to 115,200 to
speed up the upload process. Occasionally, the firmware loader may be unable
to return the serial port to its earlier baud rate, in which case communications
with the switcher may not be possible. If you are no longer able to
communicate with the switcher after the firmware upload completes, see
“Selecting the rear panel Remote port protocol and baud rate” in chapter 3,
“Operation”, on page 3-37.
