Making Selections on the A/V Matrix in Pigott 416.

The matrix in this room can be used to display content on all four screens from any connected source via manually entering your selections. If you open the cabinet under the touch panel you’ll immediately notice two rows of selections; the top is labeled inputs and the bottom is labeled outputs, and to the side is a bank of selections labeled “CONTROL”, the most important of which is labeled “ENTER”.


The order of INPUTS is as follows:

1. HDMI (labeled HDMI on device).

2. PC extended (labeled PC-e on device).

3. PC duplicated (labeled (PC-d on device).

4. Solstice Mersive (labeled WX on device).

The second and third inputs are of note as they allow the user to choose to display Windows in either extended or duplicated mode, or both, without making the selection on the PC itself. Because the matrix is specifically built to allow maximum flexibility, the user can choose to send any combination of inputs to any combination of outputs.


The order of OUTPUTS is as follows, using the windows side as north, and the entrance side as south:

1. Southeast display (labeled SE on device).

2. Northeast display (labeled NE on device).

3. Northwest display (labeled NW on device).

4. Southwest display (labeled SW on device).


When you manually begin to enter your selections, your choices will light up orange and flash. The enter button in the control bank will also light up green to convey that once pressed, your selections will engage. In the example above, I am choosing to send the HDMI signal from my personal device to all four screens. The same can be true of any input, and any combination thereafter of any output.

Input 2 (PC-e) can be sent to outputs 2 and 4 (NE and NW), while input 3 (pc-d) can simultaneously be sent to outputs 1 and 3 (SE and SW). If you wish to deselect an output from an input, simply select the input you’d like to change, select the output that is already active and that you’d like to make blank, and press enter.
