How do I use the KBD300A to change multiviews on a Matrix Switcher; CM6700, CM6800 Series?

Issue

The CM6700 and CM6800 series matrix switchers allow for the KBD300A to control multiview displays viewed from a Genex series multiplexer.

*Note The Genex Multiplexer is required for this function.

The KBD300A will not control cameras when controlling the Genex.

Installation, Maintenance, and Application.

Resolution

The KBD300A Universal Keyboard has many operational features and can be used in numerous operational modes:

CM6700 Mode: Program and operate the CM6700 Matrix Switcher/Controller Unit (SCU). Also control a Genex® multiplexer from a CM6700. Multiple keyboards can be used in this mode.

Single Keyboard Hookup
This configuration lets you use a single keyboard—without using a wall block—to control both the switcher and multiplexer (using the keyboard SHIFT (ON for Genex Control) key to toggle between them). Remember to set COMM TYPE on the multiplexer to SLAVE and not MASTER. This incorrect setting can cause loss of Genex communication and control.

  1. Connect the MAIN monitor output from the multiplexer to VIDEO INPUT 16 on the rear of the CM6700 Switcher/Controller Unit (SCU).
  2. Connect the KBD300 keyboard to the multiplexer’s COM IN port.
  3. Connect the multiplexer’s COM OUT port to the CM6700’s LOCAL KEYBOARD port.

To change multiviews using the KBD300A:

  • Call up channel 16 on the monitor or the channel where the Genex MAIN output wires to the Matrix video input.
  • Hit the Shift button; the LED becomes green.
  • The function keys represent the different multiviews available.
  • While the Shift LED is on, the cameras can be controlled through the Genex multiplexer.

Refer to the Genex Multiplexer Installation Manual for further wiring configurations and options.

 
CM6800 Mode: Program and operate the CM6800 Matrix Switcher/Controller Unit (SCU). Also control a Genex multiplexer from a CM6800 SCU. Multiple keyboards can be used in this mode.

CONNECTING GENEX MULTIPLEXERS
Use COM 4 to connect up to eight Genex Multiplexers to the CM6800.
 

  1. Connect the COM IN port of the multiplexer to COM 4 on the CM6800, using the 6-foot (1.8 m) reversed data cable supplied with the CM6800. One reversed cable and four straight cables are supplied with the CM6800. Use the reversed cable for connecting the Genex multiplexer to the CM6800. A straight data cable is supplied with the Genex multiplexer. Use this cable for connecting a second Genex multiplexer to the first multiplexer, if necessary.
  2. Connect the MAIN monitor output from the multiplexer to any of the 48 camera inputs on the CM6800.
  3. Connect cameras to the multiplexer and then loop them to the CM6800. Refer to the MX4000 Genex Series Simplex and Duplex Multiplexers Installation/Operation Manual for detailed camera connection instructions. Terminate the video loop at the CM6800.
  4.  If required, you can connect a total of eight Genex multiplexers through COM 4. Daisy chain the multiplexers by connecting a straight data cable from the COM OUT port on the first multiplexer to the COM IN port on the second multiplexer; connect the COM OUT port on the second multiplexer to the COM IN.

CM6800 programming and Genex Multiplexer integration.

  • Access the CM6800 Camera programming screen to configure the following camera control options for each camera connected to the CM6800 through the Genex Multiplexer:
  • CONTROL: MUX
  • PORT ADDRESS: assign the appropriate address. The port address must match the “Unit ID” assigned through the Genex programming screens.

  • You must also configure the Genex Multiplexer. Refer to the MX4000 Genex Series Simplex and Duplex Multiplexers Installation/Operation Manual (C1920M-B) for instructions on accessing the Advanced System Setup programming screen.

Select the following options:

  1. SPOT MONITOR DISPLAY: TRACK MAIN
  2. UNIT ID (must match the port address assigned through the CM6800)
  3. COMM. TYPE: SLAVE (each multiplexer connected to the CM6800 must be in slave mode)

To change multiviews using the KBD300A:

  • Call up the channel where the Genex MAIN output wires to the Matrix video input.
  • Hit the Shift button; the LED becomes green.
  • The function keys represent the different multiviews available.
  • While the Shift LED is on, the cameras can be controlled through the Genex multiplexer.

Refer to the Genex Multiplexer Installation Manual for further wiring configurations and options.
