  7. 7. Introduction This section gives an overview of the user guide and describes the SME 100 and its features. Topics that are covered include: zz About this Guide zz About the SME 100 zz Definitions zz Transport Protocols Used for Streaming zz FeaturesAbout this Guide This guide contains installation, configuration, and operating information for the SME 100. In this guide: zz The term "codec" refers to the H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC codec. zz The term "stream" refers to multimedia that is constantly received by (and normally presented to) an end-user while being delivered by the SME 100.About the SME 100 The SME 100 is a live streaming media encoder that interfaces with DVI, RGB, HDTV, and standard definition signals for delivering media over IP networks. It features a three-input video and audio switcher, plus buffered loop-throughs for simplified integration into AV systems. The SME 100 uses H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC encoding to output an IP stream over the intranet or the Internet that can easily be decoded and viewed on PCs or H.264 compatible devices. Figure 1 shows a typical SME 100 application.

  8. 8. Two versions of the SME 100 are available. zz SME 100 HD (part number 60-1061-01) zz SME 100 SD (part number 60-1061-02) NOTE: Both versions have similar front and rear panel features and function exactly the same. The only difference is that the SD version only supports standard definition output rates. For additional information on supported output rates, see the "Output Config Menu" section on page 38. The SME 100 is able to upscale and downscale video and computer graphic input signals, allowing for output of high quality images. The SME 100 accepts standard definition and high resolution video signals up to WUXGA 1920x1200 and HDTV 1080p/60. The resolution of the streamed output is set at a user-selected rate, including resolutions as low as 166x120 and higher resolutions up to HDTV 720p or 1080p. The SME 100 can be configured from the front panel (see the "Front Panel Operation" section on page 27). It can also be configured with a control system connected to the front panel USB Config port, the RJ-45 Ethernet connector, or the RS-232 port (see the "Remote Communication and Control" section on page 118). A web browser on a control PC connected to the same network as the SME 100 can also be used to access the embedded HTML pages, where video streams can be viewed live while making configuration and control adjustments (see the "Web-based User Interface Operation" section on page 50 and the "Web-based Configuration Page" section on page 79). Several configuration and control options are available to adjust the encoding quality of the SME 100 (such as video resolution, video bit rate, frame rate, stream type, audio bit rate, and GOP length). Configuration and control settings made to the SME 100 can be saved as presets so that streaming profiles can be easily swapped depending on the streaming application (see the "Streaming Presets" section on page 30). The SME 100 also includes several predefined presets for common streaming applications.Licensed Third-party Software Used in the SME 100 The SME 100 uses various licensed third-party software during operation.

  10. 10. Definitions Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) — A standardized compression and encoding scheme for lossy (low quality) digital audio. Advanced Video Coding (AVC) — See the H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) definition. Bandwidth — A measure of available (or used) data communication resources in bit / s. Bit rate — The number of bits that are conveyed or processed per unit of time. Bit rate is quantified using the bits per second (bit / s) unit, often in conjunction with an SI prefix such as kilo- (kbit / s or kbps), mega- (Mbit / s or Mbps), or giga- (Gbit / s or Gbps). Compression — The science of reducing the amount of data required to represent a picture (or a stream of pictures) and sound before sending or storing it. Constant Bit Rate (CBR) — This scheme adjusts the output bit rate so that it stays very close to the specified target bit rate. Constrained Variable Bit Rate (CVBR) — This scheme is similar to Variable Bit Rate (VBR), but sets a maximum allowed bit rate that the SME 100 cannot exceed. Darwin Streaming Server (DSS) — Darwin Streaming Server (dss.macosforge.org) is software developed by Apple® that provides a high performance media streaming server for delivering content. The software is used to simultaneously stream to a broad range of screens and devices (including computers, televisions, smartphones, and tablets). Domain Name System (DNS) — A database system that translates domain names (such as www.extron.com) into IP addresses. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) — A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign unique network addresses (IP address, subnet mask, gateway) to a device using a defined range of numbers configured for the network. Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) — Data structure used to communicate video display information (including native resolution and vertical interval refresh rate requirements) to a source device. The source device will then output the optimal video format for the display based on the provided EDID, ensuring proper video image quality. File Transfer Protocol (FTP) — A protocol that is used to transfer files from one host to another host over a TCP-based network (such as the Internet). Gateway — A network node equipped for interfacing with another network that uses different protocols (an entrance and exit into a communications network). Group of Pictures (GOP) — A group of successive pictures within a coded video stream. A GOP begins with an I-frame containing the full temporal resolution and data of a video frame. Predictive frames (P-frames) follow I-frames and contain data that has changed from the preceding I-frame. H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) — A block oriented, motion-compression-based codec standard developed by the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) together with the ISO / IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). HDTV 1080p/60 — Stands for high definition television displayed at 1920x1080 resolution (1080p; 2,073,600 pixels) with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Hop — In a packet-switching network, a hop is the trip a data packet takes from one router (or intermediate point) to another in the network. Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) — A networking protocol that allows web servers to transfer and display web content to users. Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Sockets Layer (HTTPS) — A networking protocol that allows web servers to transfer and display web content to users securely. All transferred data is encrypted so that only the recipient is able to access and read the content. SME 100 • Introduction 4
  11. 11. Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) — A TCP/IP communications protocolused by hosts and adjacent routers on a network to establish multicast group memberships.Internet Protocol (IP) — The primary protocol that establishes the Internet. It definesaddressing methods and structures for datagram encapsulation, allowing delivery of packetsfrom a source to a destination across an internetwork based purely on addressing.Intraframe (I-frame) — Intraframes (I-frames) are primary frames that contain the fulltemporal resolution and data of a video frame.IP address — A numerical label using the Internet Protocol assigned to devices in anetwork. The IP address for the source and destination are included in an IP datagram.Java™ — A programming language originally developed at Sun Microsystems®, Inc. (whichis now merged with Oracle® Corporation).JavaScript® — A scripting programming language designed to add interactive features toweb pages.Media Access Control (MAC) — A sub-layer protocol that provides addressing and channelaccess control mechanisms. This protocol allows for several terminals or network nodes tocommunicate within a multi-point network, typically a local area network (LAN).MPEG-4 — A patented collection of methods defining compression of audio and visual(AV) digital data. Uses of MPEG-4 include compression of AV data for streaming mediaon the Web and CD distribution, voice (telephone, videophone), and broadcast televisionapplications.Multicast — A network technology for the delivery of information to a group ofdestinations simultaneously using the most efficient strategy to deliver the messages overeach link of the network only once, and creating copies only when the links to the group ofdestinations split.

  13. 13. Transport Protocols Used for Streaming The following transport protocols are used for streaming. zz Multicast RTP (RTP over UDP) zz Unicast RTP (RTP over UDP) These transport protocols are summarized in this section. For information on how to change the transport protocol used by the SME 100, see the "Encoder Settings Page" section on page 83. Multicast RTP (RTP Over UDP) — An Overview This transport protocol is used for live video multicasting with low latency. The SME 100 uses RTP to send data to a multicast group. The SME 100 does not need to know the IP address of the devices that are viewing it. This allows a large number of users to view the data simultaneously while using bandwidth efficiently. The maximum number of connected users is dependent on the type of distribution network used. NOTE: To use this transport protocol, each network must be configured to pass multicast broadcasts. RTP RTP SME 100 NETWORK Viewing (encoder) device SME 100 sends data using RTP RTP to a multicast group. Viewing device RTP Viewing device RTP Viewing device RTP Multiple devices can be part of the multicast group. Figure 3. Multicast RTP Streaming Unlike other protocols, RTP packets include a time stamp. If packets are received in the wrong order, they are sorted into the correct order for display or discarded if the time stamp is out-of-date. However, because RTP is a connectionless protocol, data delivery is not guaranteed and some images may be dropped. NOTE: The SME 100 uses the IGMP multicast protocol to pull RTSP streams. The IGMP multicast protocol conserves network bandwidth because the SME 100 will only send data when a connection is made by the user. All network switches and routing equipment must be properly configured to support IGMP snooping and IGMP query to avoid flooding all endpoints with unnecessary streaming traffic. SME 100 • Introduction 7
  14. 14. Unicast RTP (RTP Over UDP) — An Overview This transport protocol is used for on-demand video with low latency. This method can be used where the network infrastructure does not support multicast traffic. Typically, this protocol is used for a point-to-point connection (SME 100 to single viewing device), but can be configured to use multiple active connections (see the tables in the "Streaming Capabilities and System Scalability" section on page 109 for information about the number of streams available). NOTES: • The SME 100 sends an individual stream to each viewing device. This means that the total bandwidth increases as the number of actively connected viewing devices increases and the total bandwidth decreases as the number of actively connected viewing devices decreases. • In the figure below, n represents an unspecified number of additional streams. RTP (1 - n) RTP 1 SME 100 NETWORK Viewing (encoder) device SME 100 sends data (using RTP) RTP 2 to multiple specified devices. Viewing device RTP 3 Viewing device RTP n Viewing device Figure 4. Unicast RTP Streaming Unlike other protocols, RTP packets include a time stamp. If packets are received in the wrong order, they are sorted into the correct order for display or discarded if the time stamp is out-of-date. However, because RTP is a connectionless protocol, data delivery is not guaranteed and some images may be dropped. SME 100 • Introduction 8

  24. 24. IP Addressing This section provides information on: zz What is an IP Address? zz Choosing IP Addresses zz Using the Ping Utility to Test CommunicationsWhat is an IP Address? A full explanation of IP addressing is beyond the scope of this user guide. However, the following information is enough to get started. An IP address is a 32-bit binary number that is used to identify each device on an Ethernet network. This number is usually represented by four decimal numbers (each in the range 0 to 255) separated by dots, (for example, 198.123.34.240). This is called "dotted decimal notation". An IP address is divided into two parts: zz The network identifier zz The host identifier On a given network, each address must have the same network identifier value, but have a unique host identifier. There are, therefore, different classes of addresses that define: zz The range of valid addresses. zz The parts of the address used to identify the network and host. The most common IP address classes are: Class Valid Address Range Identifier Arrangement Class A 0.0.0.1 to 127.255.255.254 NNN.HHH.HHH.HHH Class B 128.0.0.1 through 191.255.255.254 NNN.NNN.HHH.HHH Class C 192.0.0.1 through 223.255.255.254 NNN.NNN.NNN.HHH NOTES: • NNN = Network identifier • HHH = Host identifier Private and Public Address Ranges Within each of the above classes are a range of addresses designated as "private" addresses. These are addresses that should only be used on private local networks and intranets and cannot be accessed directly from the Internet. zz 10.0.0.0 – 10.255.255.255 zz 172.16.0.0 – 172.31.255.255 zz 169.254.0.0 – 169.254.255.255 zz 192.168.0.0 – 192.168.255.255 Addresses outside these ranges are considered "public" addresses.
