PDF Content Summary: Overview The NMX-PRS-N7142 Video Presentation Switcher incorporates low-latency networked AV distribution. The unit has six local video inputs and two independent video outputs (both of the outputs are mirrored). There are two models of the N7142. The NMX-PRS-N7142 is the base Presentation Switcher, with two available Networked AV slots that can be populated with Encoder and Decoder cards as required by the application. The NMX-PRS-N7142-23 is an identical Presentation Switcher, pre-populated with one N2312 Encoder card and one N2322 Decoder card. FIG. 1 N7142 VIDEO SWITCHER Installing the N7142 Video Switcher Follow the steps below for initial setup of the N7142. 1. Connect a monitor (that supports 1080p60) to one of the VIDEO OUTPUT connectors on the rear of the unit. 2. If networked AV cards are installed: • Connect the network cables from the cards to the built-in switch. • Connect the HDMI output on the installed Decoder to an N7142 HDMI input. • Connect the HDMI input on the installed Encoder to an N7142 HDMI output. NOTE: If the AV card is connected to one of the three PoE+ ports, it will be powered automatically once the network connection is established. If not, then connect the two-pin phoenix adapter from the 12VDC output connector of the N7142 to the 12VDC input connector on the card. CAUTION: Do not run wiring that is connected to a PoE PSE port outside of the building where the PSE resides. It is for intra-building use only. 3. Connect all other video sources, displays, etc. as necessary for your application. 4. Apply power to the N7142 unit using the power cable provided. 5. Once the unit completes the boot up process and the attached monitor displays the AMX logo, press the MENU button to access the On-Screen Display (OSD) setup menu. The Quick Setup page displays (see FIG. 2). 6. Use the corresponding arrow and ENTER keys (on the front panel) to assign the N7142 a Name. Use the VIDEO SELECT buttons to choose which video input (1-6) is displayed. The top row of buttons sends the video to VIDEO OUTPUT 1. The bottom row sends the video to VIDEO OUTPUT 2. Six video inputs: two Four video outputs: two HDMI mirrored pairs. VGA and four HDMI Channels 1A and 1B are a mirrored pair. Channels 2A and 2B are a mirrored pair. FIG. 2 SET A NAME FOR THE UNIT 7. Navigate to the Networking page (see FIG. 3). For both the N7142 and the Internal Switch, select AUTOIP (N7142 only), DHCP, or STATIC from the Network Mode drop-down menu and then configure the other network settings as appropriate. FIG. 3 CONFIGURE NETWORK SETTINGS Internal Switch Configuration Once the switch’s IP address has been configured, you can access all switch settings via your web browser.
