Plug’n Dive: Connecting your CinemizerOLED Glasses

The cinemizer OLED Glasses acts as a display to offer you an immersive dive in action: Whatever for your drone video stream or your preferred movie content, find here after how to connect your Cinemizer OLED Glasses to most of existing video sources.

 

 

Cinemizer HDMI connection

The cinemizer OLED multimedia video glasses are supplied with a cinemizer-HDMI® adapter. Using this adapter, the video glasses can be connected, e.g. to Drone digital video transmission systems, multimedia players, Set-Top-Boxes, games consoles, Blu-ray players or other playback devices with an HDMI® interface.

Connect the HDMI adapter to the battery box for the cinemizerOLED and connect your playback device using an appropriate HDMI cable.

The jack on the cinemizer-HDMI adapter is compliant with the mini HDMI specification (type C). Please check the type (A,B or D) of HDMI jack on the playback device before you purchase an HDMI cable. Suitable HDMI cables or adapters are available in any online electronics shop.

 

 

The CinemizerOLED HDMI adapter supports the following resolutions:

480p/576p

1280 x 720p 50/60Hz

1920 x 1080i 50/60Hz

1920 x 1080p 50/60Hz

1920 x 1080p 20Hz

In addition, the 3D mode is supported as per the HDMI® 1.4 specification for the resolutions 720p and 1080p.

Smart device connection through Lightning, MHL or USB-Type-C connection

All recent iPhone’s (iPhone 5 onwards), iPod and iPad models feature a Lighting connector. It can be connected to the Cinemizer through a Lightning to HDMI adaptor cable. Suitable adapters are available in any online electronics shop or Apple dealer. 

Here is the list of Apple compatible devices:

iPhone : iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7 et 7 Plus.

iPod : iPod touch (5th and 6th generation), iPod nano (7th generation).

iPad : iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro (9,7″ et 12,9″)

These Apple models work with digital video transmission and can be connected to the cinemizer OLED via HDMI using the Apple, Lightning Digital AV Adapter.

Many other manufacturers of smartphones or tablets (e.g. Samsung, LG, Huawei etc.) sell some devices featuring a video output that can be connected to the cinemizer OLED.

As a general rule, check that your phone features a video output, then, if not directly an HDMI plug, consider acquiring the adapter that converts this video output into HDMI for connection to the cinemizer.

This output can either directly be a mini or micro HDMI plug (such as on the Nvidia Shield tablet), or conveyed physically through the USB port of the device.

Some USB ports support MHL protocole for video output. Additionally the latest USB type-c offers the capability to convey video in ‘Alt-Mode’. Depending on the implementation of the device manufacturer, this Alt-mode can either be an HDMI protocol or latest MHL protocole.

In both case you will need the corresponding an USB to HDMI adaptor that will permit connection to the CinemizerOLED via HDMI.

Exceptional image quality is achieved by the digital image transmission. Normally the complete contents of the display are also transmitted digitally to the CinemizerOLED multimedia glasses, a feature that gives mobile video and mobile gaming breath-taking image quality.

FPV video transmitter devices via A/V cinch video cable.

 

 

The Drone Racers are usually controlled in ‘FPV mode’, i.e as if you were sitting in the cockpit of the drone. This is managed using a video transmission, either Analog or Digital. The digital case would be managed using the HDMI plug (see above). As for analog, all video transmitter, video sources and playback devices that output a “video composite” signal via the familiar yellow cinch jack can be connected using the 3.5 mm AV-In jack integrated into the cinemizer OLED battery box. 

 

This would work for FPV analog video transmitters and multimedia players: DVD players, mobile phones, smartphones, games consoles, multimedia hard disks, camcorders, digital reflect cameras, etc.

A video cable is required for this connection; this cable is included in the package.

 

Please note that the HDMI adapter must be removed on playback via the AV-In jack! 

 

On purchasing a video cable, it is IMPERATIVE you pay attention to the correct PIN assignment.

Drone FPV flight through your smart device: Fly your MAVIC in PFV mode

 

 

Here is an efficient way to fly your favorite drone the best possible way: in First Person View. Willing to fly your camera drone through your CinemizerOLED but don’t have HDMI output on your controller? 

 

Standard camera drones usually stream video wirelessly from the Drone to the remote control unit or directly to your smart device using Wifi. The video then is eventually displayed on you mobile device, the mobile device screen being used as a control display to monitor the video stream from your camera drone.

Enjoying FPV with CinemizerOLED requires to output the video stream from the display and feed the Cinemizer with it. Here below are 3 main options for doing so:

 

    • If the drone video is streamed over wifi to your smartphone, you can use a device featuring a physical video output (Lighning on Apple devices or MHL/HDMI or other mobile device), and then stream the video feed directly to the cinemizer using this output.
    • For DJI MAVIC, use the CrystalSky. the DJI display monitor that features both a USB input that connects to the Mavic transmitter, a build-in video receiver and an HDMI port that can be used to connect our CinemizerOLED.  Simply connect your CinemizerOLED to the CrystalSky, and enjoy your MAVIC in FPV as well as seeing the video feed on the CrystalSky monitor. Follow the link for more inputs on the CrystalSky.
    • Use a smartphone or tablet that both features a USB port (to input the video from your remote control) and a video output port (to connect to your cinemizerOLED). There are a few devices out there capable of this. One of them being the Nvidia Shield K1 Tablet. Enjoy !

Wireless Video Playback from your mobile device or PC

The chromeCast is probably the simplest way to wirelessly stream some content from your phone or tablet to your cinemizerOLED when at home, on your sofa or in bed.

 

The chromecast starts around $39 and is available in several versions (HD or 4K). Use the ‘google Cast’ feature on your device to send your content (through the cloud) to the google cast. This requires that your mobile device and your GoogleCast are connected to the same Wifi network for the magic to happen. More info on the chromecast website. www.google.com/chromecast‎.

 

After you’ll have connected your chromecast and cinemizer and setup your own  ‘Private cinema armchair, sofa or bed’, you’ll be able to select your content on your phone, wirelessly connect to your ChromeCast, put yourself at ease, wear your cinemizer and enjoy the movie.
