5.2.2 Screen Parameters Setting

Observe the display screen with single cabinet as a unit, and if all cabinets themselves could display normally {it is normal circumstance even the picture between cabinets is not continuous}, please ignore this step and directly go to the next step.

Otherwise, configuration must be done as follows:

Click [Load], choose the correct parameter file.

Click [Send], to send the loading parameters to the receiving cards. At the moment, each cabinet should display normally (it is normal circumstance even the picture between cabinets is not continuous), then click [Save to Receiver] to save the parameters to the receiving cards.

If each cabinet cannot display normally, you can conduct via the Basic Setting (Module Information, Box Setting, Performance Setting) or Intelligent Setting, and you can also contact with the LED screen engineers.

5.2.3 Connection Parameters Setting

Users don’t need to set up the control area of each net port respectively, but to the connection relationship between the receiving cards under the network port loading via each sender, and the software will auto calculate and set up the port control area according to the connection relationship.

Detailed setting steps as follows:

Set up the quantity of receiving card

Set how many receiver (receiving card) that one port manages in Row Count and Col Count (6*6 as an example) according to the actual loading of LED display, you will see LED display mapping area from the right side (Viewing from the front of LED display).

Receiving Card Parameters Setting

Select the target sender and the net port from the left side, then select the corresponding cabinets within net port actual control area and set the connection lines in the mapping area.

There are two methods to set up:

Use mouse to select one by one:

In the mapping area, select the first receiving card based on the actual connection of the net port (view from the front), and then set up the actual loading width and height of the target receiving card in the right side (128*128 as an example).

Click the receiver (receiving card) one by one, according to actual connecting line, until the last one for this network port loads.

Connection Pattern:

Aiming at the LED screen with standard connection lines, firstly set up the receiving card information according to the actual loading width and height (128*128 as an example).

Select the connection line you want from the right side, then cover the corresponding area of net port loading in mapping area, finally complete setting.

Note: As the cabinets have multiple and different specification (that is the inconsistent capacity of the receiving card), you can select the different one to adjust separately after completing setting.
