About the Audio and Video Switchers
The Extron SW family of audio/video switchers are 6-input,
2-output composite video, S-video, and/or stereo audio
switchers. The AS and Auto versions are functionally identical,
but also include an auto-sync detect mode. Auto-sync detect
mode, when enabled, automatically selects the highest
numbered input with a video signal available. The following
table identifies the models and their video, audio, and auto-sync
capabilities.

The switchers are compatible with NTSC, PAL, and SECAM
video. If external sync is connected, video switching occurs
during the vertical interval, providing glitch-free switching.
The switchers allow the user to switch between devices, such as
a DSS receiver, a VHS or S-VHS VCR, a DVD player, or a
camcorder and output the image to one or two video recorders
or displays such as a data monitor or large screen projector
(figure 1-1).
The ½-rack width switcher can be mounted to a standard Extron
rack panel (part # 60-190-01). Each model has an internal
100VAC to 240VAC, 50/60 Hz, 10 watts, auto-switchable power
supply that provides worldwide power compatibility.

Connections for balanced and unbalanced audio inputs —
Each input has a 3.5 mm, 5-pole captive screw
connector for balanced or unbalanced stereo
audio input. Connectors are included with
each A/V switcher, but you must supply the
audio cable. See figure 2-4 to wire a
connector for the appropriate input type and
impedance level. High impedance is
generally over 800 ohms.
The captive screw connector can easily be
inadvertently plugged partially into one receptacle
and partially into an adjacent receptacle. This
misconnection could damage the audio output
circuits. Exercise care to ensure the captive screw
connector is plugged into the desired input or
output.

When the switching between inputs, the resulting image change
should be seamless, or clean. The A/V switchers can use an
external signal to synchronize switching during the vertical
interval. Without the external sync locking feature, switching
between inputs can result in a brief rolling (sync loss) or a brief
change in the picture size.

When a local event, such as a front panel operation or error
condition, occurs, the switcher responds by sending a message
to the host. The switcher-initiated messages are listed below:
(C) Copyright 1996, Extron Electronics AV Series, Vx.xx
Cn
The switcher issues the copyright message and input selected
message when it first powers on. Vx.xx is the firmware version
number. Cn identifies the currently selected input, where n is
the input number (input 1 is the power-up default in normal
mode). The switcher also sends the Cn message whenever
the selected input is changed using the front panel buttons.
Reconfig
The switcher initiates this message when there is a change in an
audio model’s audio gain setting.
Error responses
When the switcher receives a valid SIS command, it executes the
command and sends a response to the host device. If the
switcher is unable to execute the command because the
command is invalid or it contains invalid parameters, the
switcher returns an error response to the host. The error
response codes are:
E01
- Invalid input channel number (out of range)
E06
- Invalid input channel change (auto-switch mode
active)
Input #4
E09
- Invalid function (mode) parameter
In#5
Input #5
E10
- Invalid command
In#6
Input #6
E13
- Invalid value (out of range)
Simple Instruction Set Control
Host-to-interface communications
SIS commands consist of one or more characters per field. No
special characters are required to begin or end a command
character sequence. When a command is valid, the switcher
executes the command and sends a response to the host device.
All responses from the switcher to the host end 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.

Windows-Based Program Control
The Universal Switcher Control Program, part #29-031-01, is
compatible with Windows 3.1/3.11, Windows 95/98, Windows
NT, Windows ME, and Windows 2000 and provides remote
control of the following:
•
Input selection (including audio breakaway for models
with video and audio)
•
Audio gain and attenuation adjustments (audio models)
•
Front panel switch mode selection (auto-switching
models)
Updates to this program can be downloaded from the Extron
Web site (http://www.extron.com).
Installing the software
The program is contained on a single 3.5” diskette and can be
run from the floppy drive, or it can be installed and run from
the hard drive.
To install the software on the hard drive, run setup.exe from the
floppy disk and follow the screen instructions.
By default, the Windows installation creates a C:\UNIVSW
folder and places two icons (Universal Switcher Control
Program and Universal Switcher Help) into a group named
“Extron Electronics”.
Using the software
1.

Audio/Video Switchers • RS-232/Remote Control
Figure 4-2 — Universal Switcher program window
Using the help system
For information about program features, you can access the help
program in any of the following ways:
• From the Extron Electronics program group, double-click on
the Signal Enhancement Products Help icon.
• From within the Windows-based switcher
control program, click on the Help entry on
the task bar.
• From within the Windows-based switcher
control program, press the F1 key.
Contact Closure Remote Control
The Remote connector also provides a way to select an input to
the switcher using a remote contact closure device. Contact
closure control uses pins on the Remote connector that are not
used by the RS-232 interface. The contact closure pin
assignments are shown in the table on page 4-2.
To select a different input number using a contact closure
device, momentarily short the pin for the desired input number
to logic ground (pin 5). To force one of the inputs to be always
selected, leave the short to logic ground in place. The short
overrides front panel input selections.
Audio/Video Switchers • RS-232/Remote Control

RS-232/Remote Control, cont’d
Shorting the contact closure pin to override the front
panel selection will work for all inputs on non autoswitching models. On auto-switching models, only the
contact closure pins for inputs 2 through 6 can be
shorted in this fashion. If pin 1 is connected to ground
for an extended period on an auto-switch model, input 1
is not selected. Rather, the LEDs alternately display the
previously selected input and blink the current front
panel mode.
Infrared Remote Control
The optional Extron IR 20 Universal SYS 4/8/10/AV consists of
the following components:
• System remote (hand-held remote control)
• IR detector with 6’ cable and RJ-11 connector
• IR-20 SYS 4/AV switcher remote adapter with 3’ cable and
RS-232 T connector
• External 9 VDC adapter power supply
Install and operate the remote control in accordance with IR 20
