Monitoring & Control - Main > Status

The read-only “Main > Status” screen displays information about (i) the construction of the Transport

Stream (TS) and (ii) the output mode.

1 Indicates the information about the

output transport stream. Displays

the programs present in the

transport stream and the

corresponding content and bitrate.

1 2

2 Indicates the information about

the three (3) output formats i.e.

IP, QAM, and ASI.

For IP, displays the information

about encapsulation used (UDP or

RTP), IP Address (Uni- or Multicast),

& port number.

For QAM, displays the QAM RF

Channel number the output is

assigned to.

For ASI, displays that the output is

assigned.

Monitoring & Control - Main > Program

The “Main > Program” screen allows the user to select the video and audio source for each input program.

When using the optional HD software upgrade, the encoder allows creation of a transport stream with audio

and video from different sources on physical input #1 only.

Allows user to edit the following

information about the output TS:

Transport Stream ID number

Transport Stream’s bitrate

Modulation Mode (QAM 256 /64 ; 16/8VSB)

Displays the input programs assigned to the

TS, along with their PID numbers, program

number, short name, and major-minor

channel number to create a VCT.

Allows user to assign a uni- or multi-cast IP address for the IP output.

Allows user to select the UDP or RTP mode for the IP output and assign destination and source port numbers.

Allows user to assign an upper bound on the time that an IP packet can exist in an IP network to prevent an

undeliverable packet from circulating on the network perpetually. The range is 1 to 255.

When enabled, adds null packets to ensure the TS is maintained at a constant bitrate.
