Application Notes

  • Local KVM Switching and Remote Video Presentation Display
    Local KVM Switching and Remote Video Presentation Display
    Two behind the scenes technicians can create and update information from two shared computers connected to a NTI KVM Switch with a local keyboard, monitor and mouse, while a presenter can display any computer's output to any monitor/projector. Video switching is controlled from a PC connected remotely via the Web server. Example application
  • Serial Control using AMX NetLinx® Controller
    Serial Control using AMX NetLinx® Controller
    Control a VEEMUX Audio/Video Matrix Switch using an AMX NI-2100 NetLinx® Controller with a terminal emulator such as HyperTerminal. Use a Null Modem cable to connect the PC COM port to the AMX Program port. For connecting the AMX RS-232 port to the VEEMUX, use a straight thru, DB-9 Male to DB-9 Female cable. For some NTI products, a DB-9 to RJ-45 adapter may be required, refer to the product's User Manual for more information.

    Terminal Session:
    • AMX factory default baud rate: 38400
    • Data Bits: 8
    • Parity: None
    • Stop Bits: 1
    • Flow Control: None

    Type echo on <Enter> to view the characters while entering commands. You should see a ">" command prompt in the terminal window.


    Configuring the AMX RS-232 Port:
    The baud rate of the AMX RS-232 port that is connected to the VEEMUX must be set to match the baud rate of the VEEMUX.
    In the terminal window, type: SEND_COMMAND 5001:1:1,'SET BAUD 9600,N,8,1'<Enter>
    Assumes factory default configuration and AMX RS-232 port 1.


    Testing the connection:
    In the terminal window, type: PASS 5001:1:1<Enter>
    The unit responds with "Entering pass mode."
    In the terminal window, type: ++<Esc>A
    The unit responds with "-- Ascii mode --"


    You should now be able to enter VEEMUX commands:
    In the terminal window, type: RU 01<Enter>
    The unit responds with "*<CR>IP,OP<CR>"
    Where IP is the number of Input Ports and OP is the number of Output Ports on the attached VEEMUX.


    Using the AMX SEND_STRING Command:
    The AMX SEND_STRING command can be used to send a string of characters to the VEEMUX. The string can be any valid VEEMUX command. The AMX controller must not be in Pass Through mode.
    To exit Pass Through mode: In the terminal window, type: ++<Esc><Esc>
    The unit responds with "Exiting pass mode."


    Example: To connect Input 1 to Output 3 on VEEMUX Unit 1.
    In the terminal window, type: SEND_STRING 5001:1:1,"'CS 01,01,03' (31 m),13" (330 mm)
    The VEEMUX should make the connection Input 1 to Output 3, and should indicate on the LCD that the connection has been made.

  • "As a specialized Trading Firm IT Consultancy, we received an unusual request from our customer. He was asking for the ability to take images from any of his trader's workstations and simultaneously project that image to any one of several screens, plasma displays and electronic whiteboards for all other traders to see.

    While not being familiar at all with such a system, I was tasked to do some exploring. After doing some research we ran across NTI's Web site. The site was very informative and I was able to learn that their video matrix switches allow us to do exactly what the customer was hoping for and more. I then contacted them to help me piece together a customized configuration that would help us. The sales consultant was very helpful and put together a system that met all of our customer's needs. The system included the VEEMUX® SM-16X16-C5VA-LCD video matrix switch, ST-C5V-L-600 local units and ST-C5V-R-600 remote units.

    The installation couldn't have been any easier. The connections were straightforward and the web interface setup was surprisingly intuitive. I firmly believe we had a very unique physical configuration and NTI was able to deliver in every aspect."

  • "Our company was recently asked to perform what seemed to be an impossible request from one of our clients who wanted to remotely view the activity on their associates' Workstations. The job had to be completed within a four-day time span due to the MAC scheduling of our client, and our only options were to use the VGA inputs on each of the monitors that would be viewed by the President and Vice President of this company.

    After calling your company to request information about your products, I was connected with your Associate, a mister Andrew Lorenz.

    The professionalism of Mr. Lorenz was top notch; as he not only immediately understood what I was trying to do, but steered me in the right direction as far as the exact items, product and prices that my company would need to complete the job.

    As we are constantly buying supplies and items from numerous suppliers and manufacturers, it made a huge difference for us to know that we had this kind of support and knowledge behind us. We confidently completed our client's request to their full satisfaction and amazement that we could have accomplished it in such a short time-span and under a deadline.

    I would personally like to thank your company and especially your Associate, Andrew Lorenz, for helping us to complete this job. The quality of the 12 VGA transmitters, the 5 VGA receivers and the 16x8 Matrix Switch is outstanding; and the end result was exactly what we had wanted and were expecting (as well as the expectations of our client)."
