_XConnect Network & A/V Sources with EMBEDDED LINKS->REMOVE

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 port to the IP network using the Ethernet cable:

    RJ-45 Ethernet Connector
    I/O connector for network communications (Stream output; Web interface) 

    For pinout information, see Ethernet Connector.

  3. Connect one or more of the encoder's Video ports to your video source(s), referring to the above image. The BNC connector(s) are used for Composite (CVBS), SD-SDI (Serial Digital Interface) and HD-SDI video input signals. It is also a 3G-SDI capable interface supporting 1080p 50/60 fps video @ 3Gbps.

    For pinout information, see Video Input Connectors.

  4. (Optional) Connect the encoder’s Serial port to a metadata source or to the serial port of a computer using the serial breakout cable (shown following).

    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 configuration. If no configuration was previously saved, 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.

    For pinout information, see Serial Connector.

  5. Connect the encoder's Audio connector to your audio source(s) using the audio breakout cable.
