EDID. What is it and what is it used for?

Under normal circumstances, a source device (digital and analog) will require information about a connected device/display to assess what resolutions and features are available. The source can then cater its output to send only resolutions and features that are compatible with the attached device/display. This information is called EDID (Extended Display Information Data)

and a source device can only accept and read one EDID from a connected device/display. Likewise, the source an only output one resolution for use by a connected device/display.

Why is EDID so important with the HDMI Matrix ?

The Matrix is complex piece of technology that replicates and switches between multiple inputs and outputs. Each connected source device will require one EDID to read. EDID management is carefully handled by HDMI Matrix to provide a single EDID for each source to read.

What options do I have to manage the EDID in the HDMI Matrix ?

First, it is important to note that each source device can only output one video/audio signal type. This includes resolutions and timings. When multiple devices/displays are used, such as with the HDMI Matrix, it is important to use devices/displays that have similar or compatible resolutions/features. This will ensure that the single video/audio signal produced by the source device is accepted by all of the connected output devices/displays.The user has the option, through the EDID management window, to choose how the unit will manage the EDID from multiple HDMI devices/displays. Therefore the user has some control over the resolutions/features that the source devices will output. The HDMI Matrix for has a multiple EDID management modes that will control how the EDID information from multiple devices/displays are combined, ignored, and routed.

Part1: IR Channel

IR EXT: if the panel sensor is obstructed or the unit is installed in a closed area out of infrared line of sight, the IR RX receiver included can be inserted into the IR EXT port at the rear to extend the IR sensor range and enable local control of the matrix.

IR IN/OUT: Super IR control system interface. for further details, please refer to the Super IR system control introduction.

Part2: VGA CV AND AUDIO INPUT

Connect to the VGA or CV input source devices such as a DVD player, a Set-top Box or PC with VGA cable or RCA coaxial cable.Each VGA or CV input is accompanied with a 3.5mm stereo audio input. 

Part 3: PC CONTROL

TCP/IP: This port is the link for TCP/IP controls, connect to an active Ethernet link with an RJ45 terminated cable. 

RS232: Connect to a PC or control system with D-Sub 9-pin cable for the transmission of RS-232 commands.

Part4: OUTPUT

The HDMI OUTPUT connect to HDMI equipped TVs.

Part5: HDMI INPUT

Connect to the HDMI input source devices such as a DVD player or a Set-top Box with HDMI cable.

Part6: DC POWER INPUT

Plug the 12V/2.5A DC power supply into the DC12V power in.

6. Remote Control

 

(1). Press this button to power on the matrix or set it to standby mode.

(2).Output selection.Letters correspond with the outputs on the matrix.

(3).Input selection.Numbers correspond with the inputs on the matrix.

 (4).Sources input selection.Press the button to select source input. For example:Press input 1>VGA,The input 1 will be select the VGA video input.

(5).Picture adjust.Press the button to adjust the output picture.For example:Press output 1>SCALER,The output 1 video will be scaler adjust.

Note: The AUTO ADJUST button only work on VGA input.

 7. IR Control system

At Matrix end: Insert the 3.5mm jacks of the IR TX Emitters included with the unit into the IR TX Emitter ports at the rear of the matrix according to input. The IR signal is added to the HDMI of the input device so, for example, if the user is watching Blu-ray on input 1, the IR signal will be directed through the IR TX1 socket to control the device. 

As each IR TX port is allocated to an individual HDMI input port, if the user is unable to establish IR control of the device, care should be taken to check firstly, that the IR emitter and HDMI input ports match (Input 1-TX1, Input2-TX2 etc.) with plugs secured in correct ports, and secondly, that the IR TX emitter sensors are firmly attached directly to the front of inputs and covering infrared sensor windows of the source devices.Some later adjustment may be needed to the location of the sensor to achieve the best performance results - sometimes moving the sensor to different areas on the source can improve IR performance.

NOTE: Infrared receiving areas of devices can be located by shining a flashlight onto the front of the device – the sensor should be able to be seen through the plastic as a small, round object inside.Insert 3.5mm jacks of IR RX receivers into RX ports, making sure the receivers themselves are placed in clear view to receive an infrared signal from the remote handset used to control the display outputs
