The MXA-MPL Modero X Series
Multi Preview Live (

accessory that displays an HD
video stream on Modero X Se ries T ouch Panels when used in
conjunction with a high-definition (HD) Enova DVX All-In-One Presentation Switcher or
Enova DGX Digital Media Switcher
. The MXA-MPL accepts digital video inputs over a DVI
Multi-Format connector and converts them to a video stream. The MXP-MPL also supports
all of the features of the MXA-MP
, displaying up to 10 JPEG preview images on a Modero X
Series touch panel. The MXA-MPL makes it easy for users to identify quickly what is
currently being displayed by up to 10 source devices.
For full functionality , the MXA-MPL may be used with the Enova series media
switchers and Modero X Series touch panels. The MXA-MPL may not be used with
previously released AMX touch panels or switchers.

Press and hold the Factory Reset button (on the front panel) for about 10 seconds.
At about the 5-second mark, the Power LED will blink 3 time s. Keep holding the
button. At the 10-second mark, the Power LED will blink 7 times at a
faster rate. At this time, release the Factory Reset button.
Connecting the MXA-MPL to a Network
Since the MXA-MPL works to transmit HD video and images from an Enova switch
er to a
Modero X touch panel, it needs to be connected between the switcher and the touch panel.
o connect the touch panel to the MXA-MPL:
Insert the incoming network connection cable from the Enova switcher to th e upper
RJ-45 connector (FIG . 1).
If the touch panel is not panoramic (MXD/T -1000, MXD/T -700, MXD-430), connect an
outgoing Ethernet cable from the MXA-MPL’
s Ethernet Out RJ-45 connector to an
AMX-certified high-power Power over Ethernet injector. Do not apply power until the
installation is complete.
If the touch panel is a panoramic model (MXD/T -1900L-P AN or MXD/T-2000XL-P AN),
outgoing power to the touch panel may be supplied via the MXA-MPL’
connector output (FIG
. 1) or through another source. Do not apply po wer until the
installation is complete.
