    Introduction, cont’d In this manual, the term “video model” refers to any CrossPoint 450 Plus or MAV Plus switcher that switches video. In this manual, the term “audio model” refers to any CrossPoint 450 Plus or MAV Plus switcher that switches audio. All audio models, with the exception of the MAV Plus 128 AV RCA, input and output audio on 3.5 mm, 5-pole captive screw terminals.

    Digital Sync Validation Processing (DSVP™) (CrossPoint 450 Plus switchers) — In critical environments or unmanned, remote locations, it may be vital to know that sources are active and switching. Extron’s DSVP confirms that input sources are active by scanning all sync inputs for active signals. DSVP provides instantaneous frequency feedback for composite sync or separate horizontal and vertical sync signals via the switcher’s serial ports or Ethernet port.

  • Page 21

    Introduction, cont’d 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 the Ethernet or serial link. The serial links allow remote control via a PC or control system.

  • Page 36: Audio Input And Output (models With Audio Only)

    Audio input and output (models with audio only) By default, the audio ties follow the video ties. Audio breakaway, which can be activated via the front panel or under Ethernet or serial port control, allows you to select from any one of the audio input sources and route it separately from its corresponding video source.

    Installation, cont’d Connections for balanced and unbalanced audio outputs — These 3.5 mm, 5-pole captive screw connectors output the selected unamplified, line level audio. Connect audio devices, such as an audio amplifier or powered speakers. See figure 2-18 to properly wire an output connector. Use the supplied tie-wrap to strap the audio cable to the extended tail of the connector.

  • Page 38: Ethernet, Cabling And Rj-45 Connector Wiring

    The switcher can support either the RS-232 or RS-422 serial communication protocol, and 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 RS-232/RS-422 port from the front panel. If desired, connect an MKP 2000 or MKP 3000 remote control panel to the switcher’s RS-232/RS-422 connector.

  • Page 39: Reset Button

    Installation, cont’d Side Figure 2-20 — RJ-45 connector and pinout tables Reset button Reset button — The Reset button initiates four levels of reset to the matrix switcher. Press and hold the button while the switcher is running or while you power up the switcher for different reset levels.

  • Page 40: External Sync (mav Plus Video Models Only)

    External sync (MAV Plus video models only) The MAV Plus switcher switches between inputs during the vertical interval period, resulting in glitch-free video switching. The MAV switcher 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.

    Operation, cont’d Power Apply power by connecting the power cord to an AC source. The switcher performs a self-test that flashes the front panel button indicators green, red, and amber and then turns them off. (The order in which the colors are displayed depends on the model.) An error-free power up self-test sequence leaves all I/O and control buttons either unlit or showing background illumination.

    Operation, cont’d When all input buttons 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 buttons: when fewer input buttons are lit, attenuation is greater (and the volume is quieter).

    Example 11: Viewing and adjusting an output volume level The following steps show an example in which the audio output volume is viewed and adjusted. The steps show the front panel indications that result from your action. Audio output volume is displayed differently on different models. See the table on page 3-43.

Selecting Lock mode 2 or toggling between mode 2 and mode 0 If the switcher is in Lock mode 0 or mode 1, this procedure selects mode 2.

  • Page 93

    Operation, cont’d Performing a system reset from the front panel The front panel reset is identical to the “Programmer’s Guide”). A system reset clears all ties and presets, all video and audio mutes, resets all I/O grouping, sets all input audio levels to unity gain (+0 dB), and sets all output volume levels to 100% (0 dB of attenuation).

  • Page 94

    Selecting the rear panel Remote port protocol and baud rate This procedure affects the rear panel Remote port only. The front panel Configuration (RS-232) port’s variables can be changed under serial port or Ethernet control only. See the Command/Response table for IP SIS commands, in chapter 4, “Programmer’s Guide”, to configure either port under SIS control.

    Operation, cont’d The serial port settings are protected when front panel lock mode 2 is selected. You can view the settings in lock mode 2, but not change them from the front panel. If front panel lock mode 2 is selected and you try to perform step 3, the actions are ignored and the Enter, RGBHV/Video, and Audio buttons flash.

    The hard reset restores the factory-installed firmware. The switcher reverts to that factory firmware the next time power is cycled off and on unless a firmware update is performed before the power cycle. If necessary, turn off power to the switcher. Press and hold the Reset button on the rear panel while you apply AC power to the switcher (figure 3-83).
