_Connect X4 Network and A/V Sources_pre_Analog Audio

To connect the encoder to the network and A/V sources:

  1. Remove the protective caps from the encoder's connectors.

  2. Connect the encoder's Network 1 port to the IP network using the Ethernet cable: 

  3. (Optional) To configure dual NICs for either streaming or management purposes, connect the encoder's Network 2 port to the IP network.
  4. Connect one or more of the encoder's Video ports to your video source(s), referring to the above image (front panel, Video Input). The BNC connector(s) are used for SD-SDI (Serial Digital Interface), HD-SDI video, and Composite (CVBS) input signals. It is also a 3G-SDI capable interface supporting 1080p 50/60 fps video @ 3Gbps. 


    The CVBS ports are used to support legacy Analog NTSC/PAL/PAL-M cameras.

  5. (Optional) If you have a KLV or CoT source that uses RS-232 or RS-422, connect the encoder’s Audio/Serial port to the metadata source or to the serial port of a computer using the audio/serial breakout cable.

    The Serial port is used to ingest KLV/CoT, as a management port or as pass-thru for camera control.


    The Reset button provides two options:

    • If you press and hold the button for less than 4 seconds, the system resets and loads the last saved "startup" configuration. If no configuration was previously saved as the startup preset, the default settings prevail.
    • If you press and hold the button for more than 4 seconds, the module performs a complete factory reset. It clears all of the previously configured settings, including IP, streams and encoder configurations.
