Intoduction Applications HELM 5 INTRODUCTION The Helm multi screen presentation controller is designed for simple integration and control of up to four Omni Navigators for various multiple display applications. The Helm Controller allows complete control of all of the Omni Navigator’s standard effects of various wipes, fades, cuts, and dissolves. The unit also allows set-up and control of the Picture-in-Picture and Luminance Key effects. There are built-in controls for single & multi-screen effects that can be triggered automatically or manually via the push buttons or the integrated T-Bar Controller. The T-Bar Controller also allows for manual control of the speed and duration of all of the effects. The Helm controls up to four Omni Navigator High Resolution Seamless Switchers which are designed to simplify the task of supporting professional quality video presentations. These units combine a video router, two video scalers, and a full-featured control panel in a single integrated package. The Omni Navigators have eight universal inputs that accept composite video, s-video, component, and computer video sources (640x480 VGA to 1600x1200 UXGA). The input video is converted directly to the native resolution of the projection device to optimize image quality. The Omni Navigators are ideal for use whenever multiple video sources must be switched to provide a professional quality presentation. The operators can transition seamlessly between any of the eight different input sources. Should you have any questions regarding the operation of this unit, please consult the factory.

Com 5 & 6: Remote Connector: Remote Panel (ON-HELM) connection point. Power Input: EIA Power input connection. 14 HELM INITIALIZATION: The AC power to the Helm may be switched on at the same time or after powering all ON2000 Omni Navigators units in the system. Any Navigator units that power up after the Helm may not be recognized and thus require cycling DOWN & UP of the AC power. The Helm unit will flash while it initializes and waits for the Navigators’ to complete their power up sequence. The remote console may be connected or disconnected after the power up initialization was completed. Doing so will cause the Helm system to reset and re-acquire communication to all connected equipment. MANUAL OVERIDE: Due to the complete communications between the Helm and the Omni’s, simultaneous control should be avoided. If dual control is mandatory, special care should be given for the following: Lamp feedback on the Helm may not be synchronized to the Omni’s. Any transition or screen select command from the Helm to the affected Omni will re-synchronize the system. The Wipe button on the Omni’s front panel may not operate: reset the wipe effect by pressing the Effects button on the front panel of the affected Omni Navigator and select a new wipe type. This may also be required the first time the Omni is used as a standalone device. SCREEN CONTROLS: Each ON-2000 Omni Navigator in the system can be communicated with individually or in groups. The buttons labeled SCREEN 1 through 4 correspond to the communication ports on the back of the HELM-INT rack unit and the particular Omni connected to them. Each screen button should be pressed individually to add or remove a screen from the group. The ALL button will group or ungroup all screens. The screen control buttons allow you to set the input source, Keying, and P-I-P individually, before grouping screens for a larger simultaneous transition. LED DISPLAY: The LED display is used for indicating the selected input source for each screen, and for data feedback when in any of the Setup Modes. SOURCE SELECT KEYS: • To select an Input Source for a transition, you must have one or more screens selected. When a single screen is selected, one Main Output Select button will light red and one Preview Select button will light green indicating the status. If multiple screens are selected all of the status information will be overlaid which may cause multiple indicators. HELM 15 • To select a source for the next transition, first select the screen or group of screens desired. Then press the corresponding Input Select button. After the Omni(s) acquire the image and are ready for the next command, the lamp will light green. • To cause an immediate transition on the Main Output(s) of the selected screens, press any Main Output Select button. The Omni(s) will Cut instantly to the new image after the scaler acquires the source. TRANSITION CONTROLS: There are three ways to transition the selected screen’s Preview Image(s) to the Main Output(s). • CUT will perform a glitch free, instantaneous switch from the Preview Image to the Main Output. • AUTO TRAN will perform a transition using the currently selected effect type and rate/speed. • The T-Bar allows the user to manually control the transition rate for the currently selected rate. TRANSITION EFFECTS: There are three direct access transition effect types available, dissolve, wipe, and synchronized wipe. • The DIS button selects the dissolve type for use on the next AUTO TRAN or T-Bar command. • The WIPE button selects a wipe type using the currently selected pattern and rate. When transitioning on multiple screens the wipe occurs simultaneously. • The SYNCRO WIPE button selects a synchronized wipe transition. The synchro nized effect will spread any horizontal wipe effect over all selected screens. If a vertical wipe or mosaic effect is selected a standard wipe will be performed over all selected screens. IMAGE FREEZE: Either the Preview or Main Output Image can be frozen by first selecting the desired screen(s), then pressing the PREV FREZ or MAIN FREZ button. The frozen image(s) will remain frozen until it is deselected by pressing the button a second time TRANSITION TIME: The transition time utilized by the AUTO TRAN button may be changed. Press the TRANS TIME button in the setup area. The UP and DOWN arrows will begin to flash green and the display will show the current setting in seconds. Press the arrow buttons to adjust the time. When the desired time is set, press the TRANS TIME button again, to return to the normal operational mode. 16 HELM TRANSITION EDGE: The wipe transition edge may be changed from 4 to 128 pixels thick. Press the TRANS EDGE button in the setup area. The two dual arrow buttons will begin to flash green and the display will show the current setting. Press the arrow buttons to adjust the edge. When the desired edge is set, press the TRANS EDGE button again, to return to the normal operational mode.
