EVS Broadcast Equipment SA – July 2010
1. Introduction
1.1
PURPOSE AND STRUCTURE
The aim of this manual is to describe the various configuration parameters that
have to be defined when you work on a server either in Multicam LSM mode or in
Spotbox mode, via IPDirector or a third-party controller.
• Customers who use the Multicam LSM mode can configure the server and
Multicam settings either via the Setup Configuration module, or via the setup
menu of the Remote Panel.
• Custom ers who use a Spotbox mode will configure the server and Multicam
settings via the Setup Configuration module, available via SHIFT-F2 in
Multicam.
1.2
APPLICATION SELECTION AND
CHANNEL CONFIGURATION
Prior to configuring the Multicam and server settings in the Setup Configuration
module or on the LSM Remote Panel, you must have selected the application you
will run on the server. In this step, you also define the channel configuration to be
used with the selected application, as well as several audio and video parameters
for the server.
You perform this initial step in the EVS and AVCFG software programs. The EVS
software is started when the server is switched on. For more information on this,
refer to the XT Tech Ref Software manual.
If a default application has been previously selected, this application will start
automatically after a few seconds if no key is hit.
If a default application hasn't been defined or if the space bar is hit, the system
will remain in the EVS main menu and wait for the operator's next command.

The Default Copy/Move parameter allows specifying whether the copy operations
should be executed preferably using the SDTI or the HCTX GigE network.
If the value selected is ‘SDTI’, the copy operations are first executed through the
SDTI network. If the SDTI network is temporarily unavailable, the transfer is then
tried through the HCTX GigE interface. Transfers to GigE targets will always be
performed via the HCTX GigE interface.
If the value selected is ‘GbE’, the copy operations are first executed via the HCTX
GigE interface. If the transfer is not possible (ports not connected, IP address
unknown, no more connection ports are available), the transfer is then tried
through SDTI.

2.2.11 GENERAL TIMECODE SETTINGS
From Multicam version 9 onwards, the management of timecodes has been
improved. The users can now choose which type of timecode they want to use as
the reference to work on a given recorder of a server. This is made possible by
the management of two timecode jump tables.
T IMECODE J UMP T ABLES
The timecode jump tables contain records with timecodes of video material
recorded on the server. A new record is created in the table each time a jump in
timecodes is detected on the recorded material.
The records of timecode jumps allow the identification of all the recorded material.
The timecode jump tables are used on all searches for and manipulations of video
material recorded on an XNet server.
The two timecode jump tables are filled with the following data:
• The first table is always filled in with the LTC timecode. This is the timecode
defined on or plugged into the server.
• The second table is filled in with the timecodes selected by the user. This can
be one of the following timecode type:
o
LTC and VITC (default) timecodes in SD
o
LTC, HANC LTC (default) or HANC VITC in HD
Note
The timecode jump tables are circular: when the table is full, the latest
entry will overwrite the oldest one.

The settings related to the timecode jump tables are specified on the first page of
the Setup screen (accessed via SHIFT-F2).
The operators can use two types of timecodes to work with the video material
stored by a given recorder on a server:
• The LTC timecodes are autom atically stored in the first timecode jump table, i.e.
the ‘LTC table’. This is specified in the LTC field, which is not editable.
• The second type of timecodes has to be specified by the user in the USER field.
It will be stored in the second timecode jump table, the ‘USER TC table’.
The users can specify one of the following timecode types in the USER setting:
• LTC and VITC timecodes in SD
• LTC, HANC LTC and HANC VITC in HD
The user will have the possibility to work with one of the timecode types defined
for the recorder. Usually, an LTC timecode is used to perform operations on live
events. A VITC timecode is used for video material ingested from tapes as it is the
timecode embedded in the video signal.
T IMECODE T YPE U SED ON A R ECORDER
On the first page of the VGA Setup screen, the Prim. TC field (Primary TC)
specifies which timecode type will be displayed at the bottom the VGA and will be

P ACKETS SUPPORTED
Up to now, SMPTE 334M data packets carried on the chrominance (C) data stream
within the SMPTE 292M signal are not decoded (HD).
From Multicam 8.03, all DIDs mentioned in the SMPTE 334M standards are
supported:
• 61 Î 62
• 40 Î 5F
• C0 Î DF
Those DIDs are saved and restored on the output channels on their original lines.
The other DIDs are not saved.
The maximum number of bytes saved per field (frame for 720p) is 2014. One saved
SMPTE 334M packet is composed of user data word (UDW) plus 7 configuration
bytes. It has to be taken into account to compute the number of bytes saved.
Please refer to the SMPTE RP 291-2006 standard for the assignment of DIDs to
specific applications.
E NCODING OF THE SMPTE 334M PACKETS ON THE
DOWNCONVERTED OUTPUTS
Multicam 8.03, and higher versions, can manage the encoding of the SMPTE334M
present on the HD output on the SD downconverted output as well.
This parameter can be activated on the shift-F2 screen.
For the downconverted output, one SMPTE 334M packet is encoded per line
starting from the second line after the line specified for the sw itching line. In other
words, the maximum number of packet per field is as follows:
• 8 packets per field in 525i (lines 12-19 and 275-282)

on the same lines.
If VITC in inserted in the downconverted output, no SMPTE 334M data will be
inserted on the lines carrying the VITC.
K EEPING C USTOM U NCOMPRESSED D ATA
Upon request, it is possible to custom ize the decoding of the SMPTE 334M data. If
you wish to keep uncompressed 8-bit data in the VANC data space, you can select

CONFLICT WITH XNET DEFINED VALUES
If any of the VarID settings does not correspond to the network defined values set
on the XNet, the server will be disconnected from the network and work in local
mode. In this case, the following happens:
• The setup screen clearly displays the message “ !Not XNet common value!” in
yellow next to the incorrect parameter.
• A message is displayed on the SDTI Network Monitoring screen indicating the
incorrect parameter.
2.7.4
VARID CONFIGURATION FILE
The VarID variables have to be set up in a configuration file. The settings are
defined in XML format. The confirmation file, which is named ‘varid.ini, is located
in the C:\LSMCE\DATA.

The settings are described in the table below:
Setting
Description
VarID
The VarID parameters will be set up differently depending on the
protocol used.
Uniqueness
This setting specifies whether the VarID will be unique at the
XNet network level (Global) of at the XT level (Local).
The default value is ‘Local’.
Length
This setting specifies whether the VarID has a fixed length of 8
bytes or a variable length of 32 bytes.
The default value is ‘variable 32 bytes
Form at
This setting specifies whether the VarID form at has the ASCII or
binary format. The default value is ‘ASCII’ as specified for VDCP
standard.
Protocol
Visibility
The protocol visibility allows specifying the list of servers which
will be visible on the various communication ports the protocol will
communicate with.
For a list of servers, use the XNet number of the server and semicolon separator (;). If no value is specified, the default is the
local server.
Example: 8;2;3;9
The list order is taken into account in the protocol visibility. This
means that the system first searches for the requested clips on
the first server of the list, then on the second, and so on.
In the above-mentioned example, If a clip with the same identifier
is found on server 8 and server 2, the system would choose the
clip on server 8 should this clip ID be loaded and/or modified.
Delete
Strategy
28
No Delete Strategy is applied to this version.
By default, the deletion applies to the first visible clip only.

2.11.1 INTRODUCTION TO EDITREC
EditRec is a linear editing engine that is associated to a player channel and a
recorder channel of a server in order to emulate a VTR. The EditRec engine relies
on the EditRec protocol.
Both channels of the EditRec engine are associated to the same RS422 port.
For more information on the EditRec feature, refer to the EditRec manual.
2.11.2 TWO EDITREC ENGINES PER SERVER
As two EditRec engines can be defined on a server, two pairs of player and
recorder channels can be assigned to the EditRec. In this case:
The EditRec settings for the EditRec 1 are specified on page 8.
The EditRec settings for the EditRec 2 are specified on page 9.
When an EditRec engine is set up on the server, the first line on the EditRec
settings page specifies the port number of the associated player and recorder
channels on a blue background:

RESYNC TO TC REF
The Multicam application uses an internal table to reference all timecode
discontinuities detected on the LTC input of the system . This table is used to
match a recorded field to its timecode. When the number of TC discontinuities is
too important, a “!TC” warning appears on the OSD of the output monitors and the
system switches to the “internal timecode mode. The operator can clear the TC
discontinuities by calling the Resync to TC ref function. This function
synchronizes the internal TC to the timecode read on the LTC input of the server.
From that moment on, the system will assume that the timecode was continuous
for previously recorded material, and will take into account the new timecode
discontinuities.
Note that the above explanation is only valid for record trains. For clips, the
timecode of the first field of the clip is memorized at the creation of the clip, and
the timecode is always assumed continuous inside the clip. Clearing the internal
TC table will consequently have no effect on the timecode of recorded clips.
To call the Resync to TC ref function, simply press the F6 key. The function is
immediately performed and the message “TC resynchronization done”
is displayed.

EVS Broadcast Equipment SA – July 2010
When the parameter is set to “Play through”, Multicam will still countdown to the
OUT point, but will keep playing through this point. In a clip, Multicam always
freezes on the OUT point (or OUT point + Post-Roll duration when Post-Roll mode
is enabled).
3.8.12 FREEZE ON CUE POINTS
Possible values: No (default) / Yes
The purpose of this functionality is to allow marking cue points on any field of a
record train and freeze on the cue point when the playback reaches it. This is
similar to the freeze on OUT point functionality but because it will be done on cue
point, you will be able to freeze on any field (impossible with OUT points).
When playing record trains where cue points have been marked, the playout
freezes on the cue point if the param eter is set to “Yes”. It plays through if the
parameter is set to “No”.
The Post-Roll parameter is not taken into account for this functionality.

This is a software option. It allows users to map network cameras to unused
camera position on the Remote up to the D camera. For instance, if the
configuration is 2IN 2OUT, it is possible to map 2 network cameras.
The mapping allows a quick selection of network trains on the network. Those
cameras are NOT recorded on the local server, they remain recorded on the
destination server.
The F1 key allows the user to enable or disable the option.
The other F_ keys allow the user to perform the mapping:
• If the camera is local (cam A and B on the example), no F_ key is assigned to it.
• If the position is free and can be used by a network camera, the F_ key is
available: The F2 to F4 keys can be assigned to respectively Cam B, C or D in
this case depending on the configuration defined in the Setup.
To map a distant camera to a local camera position, select the cam position with
the corresponding F_ key and jog with the dial to reach the desired network
camera to map.

This page is used to define which device/controller can control which PGM
channel. For each PGM channel, you must define the main controller, selecting
from the list defined on page 7.1.
• In LSM mode, the main controller for PGM1 must always be an EVS Remote.
This cannot be changed by the operator.
• If the main controller is an EVS Remote, the RS422 port will be automatically
assigned and is not specified by the operator.
• If the main controller is an EVS remote, it is then possible to specify a
secondary controller for that channel, that can be a protocol defined on page
7.1. The EVS remote controlling that channel can then decide at any time to
pass the control to, or to retrieve the control from the secondary controller.
• Like for page 7.1, all EVS remotes must be the first in the list of Main
controllers, without gap. It is not allowed to have a protocol preceding an EVS
remote in this list.
• A protocol (other than EVS AVSP or EVS IPDP protocols) can only be assigned
to 1 channel at a time.
• EVS AVSP and IPDP protocols can be assigned to several channels
simultaneously. If you need to assign some channels to an AirBox, you must set
the main controller for these channels to EVS AVSP. If you need to assign some
channels to an IP Director, you must set the main controller for these channels
to EVS IPDP.

This parameter specifies the channel that the GPI will affect or the device that will
send the GPI to the server.
A device can be an EVS Remote #1 or one of the protocols defined in page 7.1 (if
some GPI must be used by the AirBox in a mixed configuration LSM+AirBox, or if
GPIs must trigger some actions on a channel controlled by a Sony protocol, etc.).
If the operator selects EVS Remote #1, the GPI will trigger the selected action on
all channels controlled by that Remote Panel.
Function
This parameter specifies the function that the GPI will trigger: Play , Pause,
Recue, Previous (recue to previous clip inside the playlist), Next (go to next clip
inside the playlist), Skip (skip the next clip in the playlist), -------- (no action is
taken) or Tally. For more information on the possible functions, refer to the
explanation on page 4 of the Setup Configuration in Multicam.
If a GPI is assigned to an AVSP protocol for use with the EVS AirBox or AirEdit
application, the function of this GPI will be defined by the AirBox / AirEdit
software.

4. XNet SDTI Network
4.1
OVERVIEW
The XNet network is composed by several servers all connected with a
75-Ohm coaxial cable (BNC). The exchange between system s is operated through
the SDTI interface at 540 or 1485 Mbps.
The XNet network requires a network server dedicated to the management of the
database shared among all servers. This doesn’t require an extra server, but it
has to be assigned to 1 server on the network. If this system disconnects, another
server will automatically take over. These settings can be found in the
Configuration option of the EVS Maintenance menu. For details about the setup of
XNet network, please refer to the XT Tech Ref Hardware manual.

EVS Multicam – Version 10.03 – Configuration Manual
EVS Broadcast Equipment SA – July 2010
Issue 10.3.C
Only servers with HCTX board with SDTI module and SDTI code can be connected
to the XNet network.
The XNet compatibility between versions is detailed in the release notes.
4.2
CONFIGURATION
The configuration of the different servers connected to the XNet network is done
via the EVS Menu, more precisely in the Network area accessible via the
Maintenance menu, Configuration command.
4.3
CONNECTING TO XNET
S ERVERS
Make sure that all servers are on the same date and time. This information can be
checked from the VGA Setup screen (SHIFT+F2) and changed via the operating
system. From the OS prompt, type 'date' and enter the current date. Type 'time'
and enter the current time.
The first time the server is started, a pop-up message will be displayed to confirm
the server’s date and time. This date and time information will be transm itted to
any server connecting to the same SDTI network.
XF ILE
To check that XFile's date and time correspond to the ones on the server, proceed
as follows:
1. If the XFile application is started, close it.
2. Select Control Panel from the Start menu
3. Select Date and Time to modify the properties.
4. In the Date and Time Properties window, select the Date and Time tab to
access to the calendar and the clock.
5. Set the parameters to your current date and time.
6. Select the Time Zone tab to access to the map zone selection.
7. Set the parameter to your current Time Zone.
When entering the Multicam application, the system looks for the EVS XNet
server. The message >Net appears on all output monitors and then disappears
when the connection to the XNet is successfully done.
During operations, the SDTI network or one server on the XNet might become
unavailable. In this case the message Source LSM disconnected appears on the
output monitors and the system automatically switches to the LOCAL mode for
clips or/and record trains. If clips are inserted in a playlist, those clips will be
temporarily considered as unavailable and will be skipped during playback.

Important Note on Date and Time settings on the servers and the
XFile
Many filters and selections are based on the Date and Time parameters on server
and XFile. The Creation Date and Time are included in the ID material.
This ID is given by the system defined as “Server” on the network while creating
the clip. To ensure the validity of filters and selections, you have to define
common Date and Time parameters before connecting server(s) and XFile(s) on
the same SDTI network.

Timecode (LTC or user-defined timecode type) that is
displayed at the bottom the VGA and is used to work
with the video material stored on a given recorder. The
Primary TC is defined for each recorder on page 1 of
the setup configuration in Multicam.
LTC
Longitudinal timecode (LTC) is a timing signal that is
part of an audio tape recording. It is recorded on a
track that runs lengthwise along the tape, which is why
it is called longitudinal. It can only be read if the tape
is playing.
