Serial Communication Protocol
RS-232 and Ethernet are standard ways for PC’s to communicate with devices. Digital View was a pioneer in offering support for serial RS-232 for LCD controllers and again with Ethernet control. Although we have an extensive suite of over 50 commands, some of the most commonly used functions include:
- Soft Power on/off (standby)
- Input source select
- Backlight Brightness adjustment
- Other On Screen Display menu functions are listed in the manual
Other controller commands (depending on model*) that are also accessible via RS-232/Ethernet include:
- Color adjustment
- Aspect ratio
- PIP window selections
- Text overlay
- Volume control
- Fan monitoring
As a note, for controller models that do not have built-in Ethernet connectivity there is the IP-60 add-on board providing this and support for the full range of commands for the connected LCD controller.
