Chapter 1 - Overview

Product Introduction

The YUV2QAM is a two-channel High and Standard definition MPEG 2 distribution encoder supporting ATSC and DVB QAM, ASI and IP distribution platforms.

It inherits Adtec’s broadcast quality compression, advanced feature set, service performance and reliability in the new dense two-channel platform targeted towards broadcasters, cable and IP compression applications.

The device automatically detects video and audio from two sources (combination of HD

and SD acceptable), encodes, multiplexes and send them back out as one combined TS via

IP, ASI or optional QAM. Closed captioning and support for Emergency Alert (EAS) are standard.

YUV2QAM  Dual Channel YUV SD and HD MPEG2 Encoder with ASI, GigE. Auto detects two channels of high definition video and PCM or Compressed Dolby audio via RCA Component and YUV inputs. Encodes video to HD MPEG 2 Transport Stream, passes Dolby audio (AC3 or 5.1) or encodes PCM to Dolby AC3 per ATSC A52 or MPEG 1 Layer 2 audio, creates MPTS, and outputs ASI and GigE concurrently. Supports ATSC A69 PSIP and DVB-SI ETSI EN 300 468 service information, closed captioning per CEA 608 via composite video input with up-conversion to CEA 708 Digital captions internally and EAS + QAM Modulator – Adds ability to modulate QAM Annex A or B, and output RF simultaneously with ASI and GigE.

Chapter 4 - How-To Guides

How to Complete a Manual Upgrade

You can upgrade your Adtec device's firmware via built-in web-based application, described in the Upgrade Tab section, or via a Telnet/FTP session, described in this article.

To update your Adtec device 's firmware via a Telnet session, perform the following:

Manual Upgrade Process

Step

Action

1

Obtain the desired firmware version file from www.adtecftp.com

note*: Firmware releases are found in the Public Folders -> Firmware -> Release -> section of the website, in a folder marked with the product name. username: adtecftp password: adtecftp2231

note**: Windows Internet Explorer renames adtec firmware file extensions to .gz . When saving please add a t within the extension to read .tgz if IE has renamed your file.

2

Using your favorite FTP client to upload the firmware file to the device.

If you are unfamiliar with FTP you may use a 'My Computer' window and type in the address bar, ftp://adtec:none@192.168.10.48 where 192.168.10.48 should be replaced with the IP Address of YOUR device. You may then drag and drop the firmware file into the hd0 folder.

3

Open a Telnet session and enter the IP address of the unit you are going to update.

note*: If you are unfamiliar with telnet, open a command prompt window (windows: start -> run.., mac: macintosh hd -> applications -> utilities -> terminal) and type: telnet 192.168.10.48

4

Enter the username as ' adtec ' and the password as ' none '.

5

Enter the following in sequence: *.ECMD stop

6

*.SYSD vrn search - from the results, look for the pathname of recently uploaded firmware file

7

*.SYSD vrn install [pathname of the .tgz file]

ex: *.SYSD version install /media/hd0/YUV2QAM-v1.00.12.nfcms.tgz


How to Connect  via Telnet

* Using Telnet (standard 23 port)* To connect to your device using a terminal session, you will need to set the IP address of the unit. See earlier instructions on setting the IP via the front panel.

Using a terminal window, complete the following:

Step

Action

1

Type 'telnet x.x.x.x' in a terminal window, without quotes, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the unit.

2

Press <Enter>.

3

When prompted for a username, enter adtec.

4

When prompted for a password, enter none.

Once you see "User 'adtec' connected", the session is open and you may issue API commands to the unit.

 

For the YUV2QAM device, there are specific commands for the modulator, encoder, and the unit's operating system. Each has a unique way of accepting commands. If using telnet is your preferred method of communication to your device, familiarize yourself with the API commands and their respective command handlers. For more information on this, point your browser to the IPA of your unit and look through the API notes that are described for the device.

How to Connect via FTP

FTP connections can be made to the adtec device using any ftp client.

Host: <ipa of the unit>

Default Username: adtec

Default Password: none

Port: 21

FTP is only useful for collecting logs from the device.

How to Use API Commands

The Adtec YUV2QAM device is unique in that it handles two physical encoders. To accommodate commands for controlling both encoders, you will need to specify which encoder you are working with for each command you issue.

Please make the following adjustments:

Example: (*.ECMD0 TRA) will give you the transport status of the  first encoder.

How TMR is Configured

TMR (Transport Stream Mux Rate) is controlled by the modulator’s clock.

When in Annex B mode, the rates listed below will be configured and can not be changed.

Annex B QAM 256 the TMR is set to 38.810671 bps.

Annex B QAM 64 the TMR will be set to 26.970186 bps.

When in operating in Annex A mode, the symbol rates are adjustable and that in turn affects the configured TMR. The higher the symbol rate, the higher the data rate.

How Video Rates are Configured

Video rates can be configured manually or automatically.  The factory default is to automatically set the video rate based on TMR.  This option is referred to as VAF (Video Autofill).  VAF determines what the TMR is.  It reserves 3.5% for null packets.  It detects the video input resolution for each channel.  It automatically calculates the required headroom for audio pids. It sets the video bit rate for each channel accordingly to maximise available bandwidth.

SD encode bitrate = 1.00 to 15.00 Mbps

HD encode bit rate = 7.00 to 60.00 Mbps

Example:

TMR is set to 40 Mbps.

Channel 1 has a SD 720x480i source.

Channel 2 has a HD 1920x1080i source.

15.00 Mbps will be allocated to channel 1 because the source is standard definition. 19.10Mbps will be allocated to channel 2 (this is the available band with after VAFs calculation)  

If VAF is set to off the video rate can be manually adjusted for each channel.  If you configure a channel at a video rate that would cause a egress overflow the VAF logic will constrain the misconfiguration and reconfigure the video rate for both channels.

Example:

TMR is set to 40 Mbps.

Both channels have a HD1920x1080i source.

Both channels audio = 256 kbps

Video fill is set to off.

If both encoders are set to 19.10 Mbps and you want to reconfigure them to say 15.00 Mbps for channel 1 and 25.00 Mbps for channel 2.  This would cause an egress overflow condition because you have not factored in the 3.5% reserve and bandwidth occupied by audio pids.  Even though VAF is set to off it’s logic will override the configuration request and constrain the video rates back down to 19.10 Mbps for both channels.  To obtain the desired configuration.  You would need to recalculate your rates.  Then configure channel 1 to 15.00 Mbps then channel 2 to 23.00 Mbps.

How to enable EAS mode

EAS can be enabled from an automation system contact closure or from the webUI EAS tab.  

To enable EAS in VIDEO+AUDIO via the 9 Pin GPIO, short pin 5 to pin 7.

EAS GPIO Connector Pinout

To enable EAS mode from the webUI. Click the EAS tab.  Select the desired EAS mode, then click the large GO button.  To disable EAS mode press the large STOP button.

How to configure Network EAS Triggering

By default the YUV2QAM is configured to send a trigger over the network to all other dual channel encoders (HDMI2QAM, YUV2QAM, or EN-20) to also enter EAS enabled state.  This feature can be disabled by unchecking the box next to “Network EAS Triggering” then pressing the apply button on the EAS tab.

Manually Setting Teletext

As of firmware version 1.01.00, Teletext must be manually set on the Adtec YUV2QAM device.

Open a terminal window and enter <telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx>, where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your YUV2QAM. Press <Enter>; when prompted, type <Adtec> for the user name, and <none> for the password.

You can now control the unit via API commands.

Processing Teletext

The command for enabling and configuring Teletext Processing is ECMD PTX [Mode] [Line_EN].

Modes - there are two  modes that can be set as arguments when using the PTX command:

Mode

Argument Value

Off

0

Waveform

1

Line_EN: Which VBI  lines the Teletext will ride on must be specified.  The notation format for this is "0-0x1ffff", given in hexadecimal form with bitfields.

Setting Teletext PIDs

The command for Teletext PID settings is ECMD TPI [argument]. There are two arguments associated with this command: PIDx is the hexadecimal PID value. PIDd is the decimal PID value. Available ranges for these settings are:

PIDx Range

PIDd Range

0x0020 - 0x1FFE

32 - 8190

The full command string would read like this: ECMD TPI [PIDx] [PIDd].

This command is documented in the API Guide found on your device. To access this Guide, point a browser session to your device's IP address and this string: media/hd0/media. The API Guide can also be accessed from the "Help" tab of the browser-based UI interface.


Chapter 5 - Appendix

Appendix A - GNU General Public License

Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

Preamble

The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.

Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations.

Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION

0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.

1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program. You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.

b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.

c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)

 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program. In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.

3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:

a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.

4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.

5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.

6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.

7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program. If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances. It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice. This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.

8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.

9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.

10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.

NO WARRANTY

11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS

How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

<one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.> Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>

This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License for more details.

You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:

Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'. This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.

The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.

You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:

Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker. <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989 Ty Coon, President of Vice

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General Public License instead of this License.
