Step 2: Mount the Q-NEX NPS100

The next step is to do the installation yourself. Before installing, however, we need to determine the best location based on the scenario requirements. The Q-NEX NPS100 is lightweight because of its highly integrated features. It’s not as bulky as a desktop computer.

If you need to use it in the board meeting room, you can install the Q-NEX NPS100 under the table; it will not take up too much space and will keep the conference room clean and beautiful. If you’re buying the Q-NEX NPS100 for your conference room, you can also place it on your desk so that people in the meeting room who want to share content from their personal computers on the conference room screen can connect directly to the Q-NEX NPS100 at your fingertips.

The Q-NEX NPS100 provides wall-mount bracker, so it’s easy for undertable installation, wall-mount installation, or just put it inside a cabinet. To install the bracket, removable screws can also be combined, and you can start a happy meeting trip.

Step 3: Connections

Given that the nature of Q-NEX NPS100 is a 4K60Hz 4:4:42X2 HDMI BYOD & BYOM presentation switcher. It can process video signals at 4K resolution and support 4:4:4 color space with high color fidelity, providing a more precise and accurate image display. It also has two HDMI input ports and 2 HDMI output ports and can connect 2 HDMI signal sources and two display devices simultaneously to switch and display different input sources easily.

Therefore, in this installation step, we want to connect the device—for example, the input, output, and control Operation Platform Q-NEX Touch Control Panel.

We need to connect all video and audio sources to the appropriate Q-NEX NPS100 input, Q-NEX NPS100 output to the display and audio system, and through the CAT5 network line in the LAN connection Q-NEX Touch Control Panel to complete the centralized control of the connection infrastructure settings.

Step 4: Power and initial test

First, connect the Q-NEX NPS100 to a reliable power supply and turn it on. Ensure the power cord is firmly connected and the power indicator is on. Now, let’s perform basic functional tests to ensure the presentation switcher works appropriately. Please verify that the display device we installed in the previous step displays the contents of the selected input source. You should see a clear and stable video signal on the screen. Repeat these steps for the other HDMI input and output ports to confirm the switch’s function on all connections.

We need to pay special attention to any exceptions during this initial test. Examples include flicker, video distortion, or connection problems. If these problems occur, the connection must be double-checked to ensure compatibility between the equipment and the cable, and consult the product manual or contact technical support for further assistance. Also, read our previous FAQs-related articles for more information.

Firstly, name and configure inputs and outputs according to your setup. And configuring setup for devices connected with Q-NEX NPS100 like PTZ camera setup. Finally, set up IP addresses and network settings if you will be controlling the switcher or streaming over the network.

Step 6: Testing and Troubleshooting

A pleasant meeting needs every smooth little detail. Therefore, in step 6, we need to switch between the different input sources to ensure that the connection effect is smooth and consistent with expectations. Smooth transitions in meeting reports can improve sharing and communication efficiency, reduce meeting burnout, and increase audience engagement to a certain extent.

Step 7: Deployment Completion and Maintenance

This process is the last one. We have installed environments and locations that can be used safely and correctly. We still need to organize and protect the cable to prevent the Q-NEX NPS100 from disconnecting and note the configuration settings for future reference. In addition, training participants on how to use the Q-NEX NPS100 effectively is necessary.
