Infobit iShare+ Multi View Switcher

Dear All,

has anyone integrated an INFOBIT iSHARE+ multi view switcher? If so, we need some help with the control protocol and how the matrix switching is done..

Below the related product link.

    No experience, but by the protocol manual, I would say it's a simple text protocol...
    send_string dviShare,"'gbconfig --output-resolution 3840x2160P@60',13"

    Would say, this recalls layout # 0x100
    gblayout --set 0x100

    This may call layout 0x103 (I think this is expected as a 3-windows layout), assigning the inputs into the layout.
    Windows1 - hdmi1, window2 no video, window3 - input 2
    gbcontrol --set-layout-video 0x103 hdmi1 null hdmi2

    The "gblayout --start-video" and "gblayout --stop-video" may be unmute/mute the called output

    The "gblayout --set-sequence" may define the order of your window layouts, and the "gblayout --cycle" will cycle thru that window layout order.

    So I think this is a 4x1+1 switcher, as you can only define 1 global layout list that both outputs use.
    You only can cycle/call the windows layout for each output separately, but the assigned inputs into the layouts are the same for both outputs.
