Setting Jumper CJ1 for Local or Remote Control


Note
You need to configure modules for local or remote operation prior to power-up. To change the configuration, first remove power from the module, reset the jumper, and then reapply power. The white triangle near the jumper pins on the module indicates pin 1.

Follow this procedure to set the CJ1 jumper for either local or remote control: 1. Locate jumper CJ1 on the module (behind the hex switch). Figure 2-1 shows the location of the CJ1 jumper. 2. Place a jumper on pins 1 and 2 to set the module for Remote control, or pins 2 and 3 to set the module for Local control. See Figure 2-2.

Setting Jumpers for Output Impedance


A pair of jumpers on the EAS6800+ determine the impedance level for each of the four channels. To select 66 (low impedance) or 600 impedance, you must set the JK, JL, JM, JN, JV, JW, JX, and JY jumpers, following these steps: 1. Locate the jumpers. See Figure 2-1 on page 9 for the location of the jumpers. 2. Place a jumper on pins 1 and 2 to set the channel for 66 analog impedance input, or pins 2 and 3 to set the channel for 600 input. Do this for all channel jumpers. Table 2-2 outlines the jumper positions that will determine the impedance for all four channels. Table 2-2. Jumper Settings for Output Impedance Output Number

Setting Jumpers for Audio Level


There are twelve jumper positions, JD, JE, JF, JG, JH, JJ, JP, JQ, JR, JS, JT, and JU for determining the output audio level. By placing four jumper caps, you will set the maximum audio levels for all channels corresponding to a 0 dBFS input. Follow these steps: 1. Locate the jumpers. See Figure 2-1 on page 9 for the location of the jumpers.

Note
To set the impedance for each audio output level, see Installing 6800+ Modules on page 14 66: 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, and 28 dBu 600: 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22 dBm

However, if installing both front and rear modules, ensure that the back module is installed first before plugging in the front module. When removing both the front and rear modules, ensure that the front module is unplugged from the frame first, before removing the rear module. See the FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for information about installing and operating an FR6802+ frame and its components. See the 6800+ Safety Instructions and Standards Manual for important information about safely installing your module.

Once you have installed your EAS6800+ modules, you can connect them to the appropriate input and outputs. See Figure 1-2 on page 5 and Figure 1-4 on page 6.

Upgrading Module Firmware


This modules firmware can be updated using CCS Pilot, CoPilot, or Navigator version 3.1.1 or higher, or the HTTP software upgrade tool. In order to perform these upgrades, your frame must be equipped with a 6800+ETH module. See your frame manual for more information.

Operation
Operating Notes
When setting the control parameters on the EAS6800+, observe the following: If you make changes to certain parameters, other related parameters may also be affected. See Audio Test Tones on page 17 for more information. When you change a parameter, the effect is immediate. However, the module requires up to 30 seconds to save the latest change. After 30 seconds, the new settings are saved and will be restored if the module loses power and must be restarted.

Q-SEE Compliant Thumbnails


When installed in an FR6822+ or FR6802+QXF frame that also contains a 6800+ETH resource module, EAS6800+ module control windows have an extra Streaming tab in CCS Pilot and Navigator (version 3.2.1 or later). There you can view output video from the module. In addition, video from the EAS6800+, displayed at up to three frames per second, can be displayed on the 6800+ETHs control page, and (for CCS Navigator only) on Graphical Navigation pages. For more information on Q-SEE compliant thumbnails, see your FR6802+QXF Frames Installation and Operation Manual.

Activating EAS6800+ Functions


The following sections provide information about the EAS6800+ special functions: Analog Audio Output Level Offset on page 16 Audio Test Tones on page 17 Data I/O Output on page 17 Using the Line Synchronizer on page 17 Fine Phase Enabling on page 18 Color-Frame Locking in Delay Mode on page 18

Analog Audio Output Level Offset


EAS6800+ can attenuate all analog audio outputs simultaneously. This allows you to achieve additional analog audio output levels beyond what can be achieved using the analog level jumpers (see Setting Jumpers for Audio Level on page 10). This output level adjustment is achieved by the Output Level Offset parameter, which has a range of -5.0 to 0.0 dB in 1.0 dB steps.

Note
For information on using card-edge controls, please refer to your FR6802+ Installation and Operation Manual.

For example, to set an analog output level of +15 dBu for a digital input audio level of 0 dBFS, use a combination of analog audio level jumper settings and adjustment of the OP Level Offset parameter. 1. Set jumpers to set the analog audio output level to +16 dBu (seeSetting Jumpers for Audio Level on page 10). For this setting, refer to CJ1 Settings for Local and Remote Control on page 9. 2. Adjust the OP Level Offset parameter to -1.0 dB. Use either a remote control application (Pilot or Navigator) or card-edge control to adjust the parameter to this setting. The combination of these two settings will achieve an analog audio output level of +15 dBu for a digital input audio level of 0 dBFS.

Data I/O Output


The Data I/O output provides timing reference signals for 6800+ audio tracking modules and reference video color-frame locking information for VAM6800+ modules. This output can drive up to four chained Data I/O receiver modules over coaxial cable up to 985 ft (300 m) long. If you wish to connect to more than one Data I/O receiver module, the use of T-connectors is recommended.

Using the Line Synchronizer


The Line Synchronizer is a special mode of the Synchronizer Mode parameter that enables synchronization of the composite output video with the reference video. For the Line Synchronizer to function correctly, the following conditions must be met: Reference video must be present and locked Input SD-SDI video must be frequency locked to the reference video Output video must be within a three-line window of the input video

Line Synchronizer in Window Indication The EAS6800+ provides a status parameter called Line Sync in Window. Through a remote control application, this read-only parameter indicates if the input video is within the three-line window for line synchronization. Table 3-2 summarizes this functionality. Table 3-2. Line Synchronizer in Window Indication Event
Input video within three-line window Input video out of three-line window

Chapter 3: Operation

Aligning the Output Video Using the Line Synchronizer To align the output video to the desired position with respect to the reference video, follow these steps: 1. Adjust the VPhase, HPhase, and FPhase parameters. 2. Observe the Line Sync in Window status parameter from a remote control application to ensure that the input video is within the three-line window of the output video. If necessary, repeat steps 1 and 2 until the desired alignment is achieved.

Fine Phase Enabling


When the Synchronizer Mode parameter is set to Delay mode, the Fine Phase parameter is disabled by default. However, it is possible to enable this control using the Fine Phase Enable parameter if the following conditions are met: Reference video must be present and locked Input SD-SDI video must be frequency locked to the reference video

If the above two conditions are met and the Fine Phase Enable parameter is set to Enable, then the Fine Phase parameter will become enabled and can be adjusted. If the Reference video is not locked, then the Fine Phase Enable parameter is automatically disabled. The Fine Phase parameter is always enabled when the Synchronizer Mode parameter is set to either Frame Sync mode or Line Sync mode.

Color-Frame Locking in Delay Mode


When the Synchronizer Mode parameter is set to Delay mode, the EAS6800+ will attempt to color-frame lock the composite output video with the reference video. In order to achieve correct color-frame locking when the module is in Delay mode, ensure the following conditions are met: Reference video must be present and locked Reference video standard must match the module's composite video output standard Input SD-SDI video must be frequency locked to the reference video

If composite output color-frame locking is not desired when the module is in Delay mode, and the input SD-SDI is not frequency locked to the reference video, you may see distortion in the output picture. To resolve this, take one of the following steps: Remove the reference video from the module or Set the Genlock Lock Mode parameter to Freerun

On Screen Display
The EAS6800+ offers On Screen Display (OSD) graphics on the composite monitoring output. The OSD graphics allow for instant status of the output audio levels, prior to conversion to analog. There are two audio level meters, one for each audio output pair. Within each meter, the level display uses color-coded bars (green, yellow, red) to reflect the operating level. The output audio level meters have the following customization options: Select the audio level display type with the parameters OSD VU1 Bar Display Type and OSD VU2 Bar Display Type, and the options are VU (Volume Unit), PPM (Peak Program Meter), VU and PPM, and Off (this deactivates the feature entirely). Set the opaqueness of the level scale with parameters OSD VU1 Bar Opaqueness and OSD VU2 Bar Opaqueness. Set the vertical and horizontal position in the video frame with parameters OSD VU1 Bar Vertical Position, OSD VU1 Bar Horizontal Position, OSD VU2 Bar Vertical Position, and OSD VU2 Bar Horizontal Position. Adjust the green bar top level (default is 18 dBFS) with parameters OSD VU1 Green Bar Top Position and OSD VU2 Green Bar Top Position. Adjust the yellow bar top level (default is 6 dBFS) with parameters OSD VU1 Yellow Bar Top Position and OSD VU2 Yellow Bar Top Position.

Recalling Factory Default Parameter Settings


Card-Edge Parameter OptionsEAS6800+ Modules on page 23 describes all of the parameter settings for the EAS6800+, including the original factory defaults. To return this module to its factory default settings, you can either reset each parameter individually or do a global recall following this procedure: 1. Rotate the hex switch to 0. 2. Toggle the navigation switch to the bank number 0. Use the control LEDs to verify which bank you have selected, or use an available 6800+ software control option (serial/local or Ethernet/remote) to aid in confirming your bank selection. 3. Rotate the hex switch to the global recall parameter F. 4. Toggle the navigation switch to On. Use an available 6800+ software control option to aid in viewing, setting, and confirming the parameter value.

Alarms
If a major or minor alarm is triggered within your EAS6800+ module, the Status LED will light red. Alarms are usually logged and monitored within available software control applications (for example, + Pilot Lite or Pilot). You can only differentiate between major and minor alarms within a software control application. See the appropriate software control user manual or online help for more information. Table 3-9 describes the specific alarms for the EAS6800+. You can only identify specific alarms using a software control application. Table 3-9. Alarm Definitions Alarm Name

Q-SEE Smart Alarms


Note
QSEE smart alarms require CCS Pilot or Navigator version 3.2 or later.

Q-SEE smart alarms monitor the health of the video and embedded audio inputs to your EAS6800+ modules. Q-SEE smart alarms overcome many of the limitations of previous monitoring systems. Alarms can be enabled or disabled, so you can choose which alarms to monitor. Each alarm is configurable with the following features: A priority setting determines whether the alarm is major or minor. A Trigger setting determines how long an alarm condition must exist for before it is reported. A Clear setting determines how long the condition must cease to exist for before the alarm is deactivated.

A Global Alarm Priority can be set for EAS6800+ modules, and for each input to the module. (With Pilot or Navigator in Build mode, right click on the module or input and choose Configuration. The Report Alarms with Priority Greater Than: setting is on the Device tab.) If an alarms priority is at or above this setting, that alarm displays when it is triggered. Some alarms also have an associated tolerance parameter, which allows you to adjust the level above or below which an alarm is triggered. Each alarm has an option for acknowledgement, so you can let other users on the network know that the alarm situation has been addressed. When a Q-SEE smart alarm appears in an EAS6800+ module, the card-edge Module Status LED will turn red. Q-SEE smart alarm names, thresholds and other controls appear in Pilot and Navigator software only. For more information, see the following topics: EAS6800+ Q-SEE Smart Alarm Parameters on page 43 EAS6800+ Q-SEE Smart Alarms on page 45

EAS6800+ Q-SEE Smart Alarm Parameters


For each input to an EAS6800+ module, there are parameters that can be set to trigger various alarms. Table 3-10 lists the parameters for each Q-SEE smart alarm input.

EAS6800+ Q-SEE Smart Alarms


Q-SEE smart alarms are divided into three groups: EAS6800+ SDI Video Alarms on page 46 EAS6800+ SDI Embedded Audio Alarms on page 48 EAS6800+ SDI Data Alarms on page 49

Unless otherwise indicated, the following settings can be made for each Q-SEE smart alarm within Pilot or Navigator software. Table 3-11. Alarm Options Alarm Option
Enable/Disable

Effect
This option toggles between Enabled and Disabled. If the alarm is Enabled, an alarm condition will generate an alarm; but if it is Disabled, the alarm condition will be ignored. This setting determines whether a triggered alarm will be reported as major or minor. The range is 1 - 10. A priority of 6 or higher is a major alarm (red in CCS software such as Navigator), and a priority of 5 or lower is a minor alarm (yellow in CCS software). This option determines how long an alarm condition must exist (in seconds) before the alarm is triggered. If the alarm level is reached for less time than the Trigger duration, then the alarm will not trigger. Choose any duration from 0 to 7200 (or two hours). If this option is set to 0 and the alarm condition exists for any period of time, then the alarm will trigger. Determines the amount of time the alarm condition must be in abate in order for the alarm to be turned off. Choose any duration from 0 to 7200 seconds (or two hours). If this option is set to 0 and the alarm condition ceases for any period of time, then the alarm will clear. When an alarm is active, click here to allow other users on the network to see that you have acknowledged the alarm.

Appendix A

Cross-Color Reduction Filters


Overview
This section describes the cross-color reduction filters that are available for the EAS6800+ module. The filter responses and characteristics are implemented by a 15-tap folded FIR with 12-bit coefficients. The Cross Color Reduction Filter has three parameters associated with its operation: XCR Function Block, XCR Function Enable and XCR Filter Select. Use XCR Function Block to insert or remove the cross color reduction circuit into or out of the video processing signal path. If set to Insert, the cross color reduction block can be enabled or disabled with the XCR Function Enable parameter. When set to Insert, the cross color reduction circuit will add 1 line and 1 sec of video processing delay. Use XCR Filter Select to select the type of filter used by the cross color reduction circuitry. See Filter Summary on page 59 for details. Use XCR Function Enable to selectively enable or disable the cross color reduction circuitry. When set to Enabled, the circuit performs as described in the remainder of this section. When set to Disabled, the cross color reduction circuit is removed and an equivalent video delay is inserted to compensate for the delay that would have been introduced by the cross color reduction circuit. The net effect is an equivalent amount of video processing delay if this parameter is set to Enabled or Disabled.

Filter Summary
The implementation of each Cross Color Reduction filter consists of two filters: a vertical high pass filter and a horizontal high pass filter. The frequency response of the vertical high pass filter is fixed and is non-programmable, while the horizontal high pass filter is programmable.

Genlock and Output Troubleshooting


Overview
The following checklists will help you solve some of the most commonly seen issues. It is split into the following two sections: Genlock Issues on page 63 Output Issues on page 65

For best results, use + Pilot Lite software to check settings and parameters if housed inside an FR6802+ frame. + Pilot Lite software is installed on a PC that connects to the frame via the serial port connector at the rear of the frame, and can be downloaded from our website. Use a null modem RS-232 cable to connect between the PC and the frame.

Genlock Issues
If the EAS6800+ cannot lock to genlock, proceed through the following checklist: 1. Check that the Genlock Lock Mode parameter is not set to Free Run mode. If this parameter is set to Free Run it will not synchronize the video to the genlock reference. 2. Check that the Synchronizer Mode parameter is not set to Delay mode. If this parameter is set to Delay mode it will not synchronize the video to the genlock reference. 3. Check that the SD-SDI Video Standard parameter is set to the correct standard for current video input. This parameter is normally left in Auto mode where it will automatically switch to 525 or 625 SD-SDI video standards as the input changes. However if this is forced into 525 or 625 then the genlock input must also match the chosen standard. For example, if 625 mode is selected but an NTSC reference is present on the genlock input, the unit will not genlock or synchronize. 4. If items 1 to 3 have been checked and determined correct, check the back module. a. Unplug the front module first.

Appendix B: Genlock and Output Troubleshooting

b. Unscrew and remove the back module. c. Check that the 20-pin spring connector at the bottom of the back module does not have any bent or pressed in pins. (See Figure B-1.) Even a slightly depressed or bent pin may cause genlock issues.

Figure B-1. Back Module to Front Module Connector

Note
Bent pins may also cause communications issues with + Pilot Lite, Pilot or Navigator.

d. If there are bent pins, carefully reposition them to their correct positions. e. If this is not possible, you can exchange the back module for a new one. (Order part number EAS6800+DR.) 5. If the EAS6800+ can still not be genlocked, attempt doing a Factory Recall on the module.

Appendix B: Genlock and Output Troubleshooting

Output Issues
If the composite output has issues such as no output, unstable output, or frozen output, proceed with the following checklist. 1. Check that the Video Output Standard Set parameter is set correctly. If a 525 SD-SDI input is present, then the valid output standard choices are NTSC or PAL-M. If PAL-M is chosen but NTSC desired the unit will not pass good video. 2. If the Synchronize Mode parameter is set to Delay mode and the reference video is present, but the input SD-SDI is not frequency locked to the reference video, the composite output video may be distorted. To resolve this, either remove the reference video from the module, or set the Genlock Lock Mode parameter to Freerun. 3. If the video output appears to be frozen, check that the Freeze Enable parameter is not set to Enabled. By turning this on it will freeze the last video frame or field that was received. 4. If the video output appears to be stuck on a test pattern, check that the Test Signal Enable parameter is not set to Enabled. 5. If Closed Captioning on Line 21 does not appear to be picked up by CC decoders or is intermittent, ensure that the Line 21 VBI parameters are set to Luma Only. This bypasses any cross color artifacts that may occur. Go to the VBI Field 1 Line 21 Mode parameter and select Luma Only. If there is Closed Caption 2 (CC 2) on Field 2 then also go to the VBI Field 2 Line 21 Mode parameter and select Luma only.

If the CC decoder still has problems decoding the closed captioning, check that there is no setup on Line 21. Go to the Setup Starting Line parameter and set it to 22 so that setup is not added to Line 21. 6. If the output is still not valid, try doing a Factory Recall. 7. Check the Module Status LED on the card edge. If it is flashing red it indicates there is a likely hardware or firmware fault. Contact customer service. If, after going through this checklist, the EAS6800+ module still does not operate as expected contact Customer Service for further assistance.

Pilot Lite Fails to Communicate with Installed Modules


Confirm that the following items are not the reason for the communication failure: Proper module slot has not been specified (+ Pilot Lite is not communicating with the appropriate slot). See your FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for more information on slot identification. COM port is used elsewhere (Check that the correct COM port is configured in + Pilot Lite and that another application is not using that COM port). Actual frame ID does not match with the two DIP switch settings in the back of the frame (+ Pilot Lite is not communicating with the proper frame). See your FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for more information on frame ID switch settings. Null modem cable is not being used. Between the PC running + Pilot Lite and the FR6802+ frame, there should be a null RS-232 modem cable. At minimum, this requires that pins 2 and 3 are crossed and 5 to 5 for ground. ICE6800+ module is installed in the frame (+ Pilot Lite control is disabled if an ICE6800+ module is installed in the frame; ICE6800+ modules are used for CCS control). A legacy 6800 series product is in the frame. + Pilot Lite cannot communicate with legacy 6800 series products. They will not be discovered or controlled by + Pilot Lite, although they can be installed in the FR6802+ frame and work using card edge controls. The module must be from the 6800+ product family. Check that the back module does not have any bent pins, following this procedure: a. Unplug the front module. b. Unscrew and remove the back module.

Figure C-1. Back Module to Front Module Connector This connector should not have any bent or pressed pins. Even a slightly depressed or bent pin may cause genlock issues. d. If there are bent pins, carefully reposition them to their correct positions. If this is not possible, you can exchange the back module for a new one (order part number EAS6800+DR). +

Pilot Lite Does Not Find All Modules in Frame


If a discovery is started too soon after frame power-up, + Pilot Lite will not find all the installed modules. Refresh + Pilot Lite (File > Refresh), and ensure that installed modules are fully powered-up first before discovery. If a module is plugged into the frame after a discovery, + Pilot Lite does not automatically detect the module. Refresh + Pilot Lite (File > Refresh) to discover the newly installed module. If a Legacy 6800 series product is in the frame, + Pilot Lite will not detect it. + Pilot Lite cannot communicate with legacy 6800 series products. They will not be discovered or controlled by + Pilot Lite although they can be installed in the FR6802+ frame and work using card edge controls. For + Pilot Lite to find a module, it must be from the 6800+ product family.

Pilot Lite or CCS Software Application Not Responding


+ Pilot Lite and CCS applications such as Navigator or Pilot cannot run on the same PC at the same time. Both applications can be installed, but only one can be opened at a time.

Pilot Lite Cannot Control a Module Showing in the Control Window


Consider these questions:
EAS6800+ Installation and Operation Manual

69

Appendix C: Communication and Control Troubleshooting Tips

Did you physically set the jumper for local control? If so, set this jumper to the REM position for remote control. Does the card name in the control window physically match the card type in the frame? Is the module properly seated in the frame? Check the positioning of the module in its slot in the frame. Does the Control window indicate the device is ready? The device may be powered off or disconnected from the network.

Pilot Lite Status Bar Reports Not Ready


+ Pilot Lite reports each devices connection status in the status bar. If the connection status message reads Not Ready, check the following: Is the module properly seated in the frame? Check the position of the module in the frame. Is the frame connected to the network? Check the devices network connection.

If the status bar still reports no status or Not Ready for the frame or device, try restarting + Pilot Lite.

CCS Software Application or Remote Control Panel Does Not Communicate with Module
CCS software applications (such as Pilot, CoPilot, and Navigator) and remote control panels require the purchase and installation of an ICE6800+ module in an FR6802+ frame in order to communicate remotely via Ethernet.

Alarm Query Fails When a Device Reboots


When you reboot a device connected to your PC, the alarm traffic hitting the network may cause an alarm query request to time out and fail. While the query does not automatically retry, it will post an Alarm query failed message to the Diagnostics window. To clear an Alarm query failed message, right-click inside the Diagnostics window, and then select Refresh from the resulting context menu.
