NOTE: The ActionMedia II Display Adapter/A requires a 16-bit or a 32-bit expansion slot with a video expansion
When configuring a PS/2 System with ActionMedia II, it may be
necessary to limit the utilization of the system expansion slots to avoid the possibility ov overloading
the 12 volt power supplies.
If the ActionMedia II Display Adapter/A is being installed with the ActionMedia II Capture Option then,
besides the slot for the ActionMedia II Display Adapter/A, it is necessary to have a minimum of either:
- One empty expansion slot, or
- One expansion slot occupied by an option card not requiring +12 Vdc or -12 Vdc power. As a guide,
it may be assumed that option cards providing networking or communication support are likely to
require +12Vdc or -12Vdc power.
The Audio Signal output connector is a 3.5mm standard stereo jack output connector. An amplifier, or active
speakers can be attached to the ActionMedia II Display Adapter/A.
The input impedance of the headphones orspeakers should be at least 600 Ohms to match the output impedance. Use of a lower impedance
devices may cause a POST error and a reduction in audio quality.
The Audio/Video Capture Connector (8-way DIN) is only required when the Capture Option is installed.
The Auxiliary Video Output Connector (4-way DIN) allows to connect the ActionMedia II Adapter to an S-VHS
(Super Video Helical Scan also reffered to professionally as Y-C) video recorder or similar device.
NOTE: A cable is not supplied with the option.
The ActionMedia II Video Cable connector (15-pin) enables the ActionMedia II Display Adapter/A to take the
video signals from a normal PS/2 VGA or XGA display adapter, combine it with ActionMedia II video signals, and send the mixed video
signal to a PS/2 display.
Depending on the application program, the presentation on the PS/2 display is developed from either:
- VGA or XGA video signals,
- ActionMedia II video signals, or
- Mixed ActionMedia II and VGA or XGA video signals.
The default for the ActionMedia II Adapter/A is to pass VGA or XGA video signals to the PS/2 display.
Ensure that the connectors (black and grey) are correctly connected. Any other cable
connection may cause the adapter to malfunction and cause damage to its internal components. BLACK (short cable) end to ActionMedia II and
the (longer cable) end with GRAY connector to VGA (System board) or XGA adapter.
