SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/40 Configuration

The configuration of the IP settings was moved to an XML file containing IP relevant parameters only. The file ipconfig.xml can be found in %ProgramData%\Vizrt\VizEngine.

Warning: When editing the XML file, do not delete any tags and only edit values between <tag> and </tag>.

This section contains information on the following topics:

General Settings

Setting

Description

AutoRecovery

When set to true , every change for parameters (either set by direct command or NMOS requests) is saved to the config file. When Viz Engine is restarted, those settings are used to configure the IP connectors.

Is07Receivers

Currently not in use.

SFP Settings

Setting

Description

IPv4Address

X.mio3: the static unicast IP v4 address used as source address and for the PTP connection.

X.mio5: the static IP v4 address used for the PTP connection, if DHCP is disabled. Can be 0.0.0.0 otherwise.

IPV4Gateway

X.mio3: the static IP v4 gateway address used as source address and for the PTP connection.

X.mio5: the static IP v4 gateway address used for the PTP connection, if DHCP is disabled. Can be 0.0.0.0 otherwise.

IPv4Netmask

X.mio3: the network subnet mask used for the source address and the PTP connection.

X.mio5: the network subnet mask used for the PTP connection, if DHCP is disabled. Can be 0.0.0.0 otherwise.

Smpte2059SfpSettings::DhcpEnable

X.mio5 only: enables DHCP support for the SFP unicast PTP settings.

Smpte2059SfpSettings::TypeOfServiceDSCP

Indicates that the Type of Service (ToS) is Differentiated Service Code Point (DSCP).
Range is [0..63] (6 bits).

Smpte2059SfpSettings::DelayMechanism

Indicates the type of delay mechanism to use for the time server connection.
0 = Invalid
1 = EndToEnd
2 = PeerToPeer

0 = Invalid
1 = Multicast
2 = Unicast
3 = Hybrid

Smpte2059SfpSettings::MasterClockDomainNumber

Important: The IPv4 settings for the source port on X.mio5 must be set in the Windows 10 network settings. If DHCP is not available on the essence network, static addresses must be used. Every SFP of an X.mio5 needs two unicast IPv4 addresses. One is for the PTP settings set in ipconfig.xml, and the other is set in the Windows 10 network settings, used as source address (e.g. address used in an IGMPv3 environment for source specific multi-casting).

Change IP Properties

Although the IP properties may be changed by editing the configuration file directly, the IP address and port numbers can also be set via the command line interface. Because channel numbering is zero-based here, Output Channel 1 is referred to as VIDEOOUT_0. To check the currently configured values call the command using GET (instead of SET) without parameters.
