Introduction to the Web Interface
The 4x1 Switcher for HDMI w/HDR includes a built-in web interface. We recommend that
the web interface be used to control the switcher as it provides easy management of all
features used by the switcher.
► Logging In
1. Launch your favorite web browser.
2. In the address bar, type the IP address of the switcher.
3. The login page will be displayed.
4. Select the user from the Username drop-down list.
• Operator
The Operator username provides restricted access to the web interface.
This username allows access to both the Routing and Status tabs.
The default password for the Operator user name is Operator.
All passwords are case-sensitive. For information on changing
the default password, see Configuring Network Settings (page 33).

5. Enter the password for the selected username.
6. Click the Login button.
7. The Routing tab will be displayed.
► Administrator vs Operator
As mentioned earlier, logging in as Operator provides restricted access to many
of the available features within the web interface. This is summarized in the table
below:

The web interface is organized into tabs, in the top-portion of the screen. Clicking on
a tab will display a different screen.
The Setup and Manage EDID tab have their own set of tabs, which we will refer to as
“sub-tabs”, as shown below.
► Buttons
Several screen contain buttons which allow the selection of a particular mode or
setting. Click the button for the desired setting. Buttons that are red represent
a setting that is “turned on”. If the button is pale-yellow, then the feature is “turned off”:

• If a button is light-gray or dark-gray (disabled), then this means that the setting
is not available. This usually requires that another setting must be enabled
before setting that feature.
For example, note that both the Remote UDP Access button and the UDP Port
field are disabled in the illustration, below:
In order to change either of these settings, UDP Access must be enabled.
After clicking the Enable button, next to UDP Access, the button turns red and
reads “Enabled.” Since UDP Access is now enabled, we can now enable or
disable Remote UDP Access and/or change the UDP Port number:

HPD Control
A Hot-Plug Detect (HPD) is a +5V signal that is sent from the source to the sink, once it is
connected using an HDMI cable. After receiving the signal, the sink device sends a +5V
HPD signal back to the source. HPD is used to begin communication between source and
sink. Within the web interface, an HPD pulse can manually be sent to the source device
from the selected input.
1. Click the Setup tab within the built-in web interface.
2. Click the HPD Control sub-tab.

1. Click the Setup tab within the built-in web interface.
2. Click the HDCP sub-tab.
3. For inputs, select the desired button next to the input.
► Reject - Does not allow HDCP content to be passed through. Click the
