About the Guide
This guide contains installation, configuration, and operating information for the VNR 100.
In this guide:
•
The term “recorder” refers specifically to the VNR 100.
•
The term “codec” refers to a VN-Matrix device that acts as an encoder and decoder.
•
The term “stream” refers to multimedia that is constantly received by (and normally
presented to) an end-user while being delivered by a VN-Matrix encoding device.
•
The term “element” refers to the video or graphics, audio, data, and whiteboard
(user data) content that is contained within a stream.
About the VNR 100 Recorder
The VNR 100 recorder is a network appliance capable of recording PURE3 video, audio,
and data streams from VN-Matrix codecs and encoders. Multiple VNR 100 units can be
configured together into systems to record and play back multiple, synchronized PURE3
streams.
The recorder is able to play and control a previously recorded file while simultaneously
recording a new file, with a sustained aggregate bit rate of 150 Mbps. The VNR 100 is also
able to replay, with time slip, a file that is still being recorded.
One or more VNR 100 recorders can be used in a VN-Matrix system. The system must
be under the control of an Extron VNM Enterprise Controller, whether the system contains
a single VNR 100 recorder or multiple recorders. Controlling multiple recorder devices or
channels from a single master unit allows:
•
Support for common transport controls for record and playback of grouped channels.
•
Support for directory and file management of grouped recordings and playback.
Multi-channel systems are facilitated by maintaining full stream synchronization of multiple
recorder devices across all stream elements (video, audio, data, and whiteboard) at all
playback speeds in forward and reverse directions.
The recorder uses a network storage architecture, which makes the system highly scalable
and flexible.

Overview of Recorded Streams
Encoders convert video signals to highly compressed signals that can be transferred over a
network.
•
The VNR 100 records the compressed signals from the network, without further
processing.
•
As a minimum, each recording contains a video element.
•
A recording may also include elements containing audio, data, and whiteboard
information (if these are present and enabled at the encoder). If these are selected for
storage, each element is stored as an individual file within the same directory.
Overview of Stream Playback
•
The VNR 100 plays back saved data without processing. It is already in a highly
compressed format that can be transferred over a network.
•
When a recording that contains multiple elements is selected for playback, all the
necessary files are loaded.
•
The video content is always played back.
•
When present, audio, data, and whiteboard elements may be enabled or disabled for
playback. If they are enabled, the audio, whiteboard, and data elements are always
slaved to the video stream.
Decoders take the highly compressed signals from the network and reconvert them to the
uncompressed format required by a display device.
Transport Protocols Used for Streaming
Source data from a VN-Matrix encoder can be distributed to multiple displays or decoders
(one-to-many) or to a single display or decoder (point-to-point). A previously recorded
stream can be distributed in the same way and, as the source of an encoded stream, the
recorder may be thought of as an encoder in this context.
A stream may be transported over the network from the source (encoder, recorded stream)
to the display (decoder) using one of three methods:
•
Multicast Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP)
•
Unicast Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP)
•
Unicast Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
By default, the VNR 100 recorder provides a choice of unicast RTP or unicast TCP transport
protocols. A multicast transport protocol may be configured if required (see the Enterprise
Controller User Guide).
NOTES:
• During playback of a recorded stream, the transport protocol can be TCP, RTP, or
RTP Multicast. The protocol is specified on the VNM Enterprise Controller.
• When a stream is recording, the VNR 100 may be considered as a display
(decoder) device.

Multicast RTP — An Overview
Multicast RTP allows a source to be displayed on multiple displays. This method uses a
real-time variation of UDP (User Datagram Protocol) called RTP (Real-time Transport
Protocol).

Figure 2.
Multicast RTP Streaming
DISPLAY(S)
The source encoder uses RTP to send data to a multicast group. The source does not need
to know the IP address of the decoders that are using the source.
RTP provides very low latency which is important for video 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.
When data packets are lost (for example, due to excessive network traffic), the
decoder devices carefully manage the data stream to minimize any image disruption.
VNR 100 • Introduction

Unicast RTP — An Overview
Similar to multicast RTP, this method uses a real-time variation of UDP protocol, called
unicast RTP. This method can be used where the network infrastructure does not support
multicast traffic. Typically, this protocol is used for point-to-point configuration (single source
to single display), but can be configured to use up to a maximum of four displays.
NOTE: The encoder sends an individual stream to each decoder. This means that the
total bandwidth of the VN-Matrix system increases as more decoders are added.

Unicast RTP Streaming
RTP provides very low latency which is important for video 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.
When data packets are lost (for example, due to excessive network traffic), the
decoder devices carefully manage the data stream to minimize any image disruption.
Unicast TCP — An Overview
This method transports data using standard TCP (Transport Control Protocol) and should
only be used for single point-to-point transfer of data.
TCP is a connection-based protocol and, therefore, data is guaranteed to be delivered.
However, in the event of excessive network traffic, delivery may be delayed which will impact
real-time performance.

Definitions
PURE3 — PURE3 is specifically designed for network transmission of real time media (such
as video or graphics, audio, data, and whiteboard elements). It features both spatial and
temporal image compression, which allows for efficient bandwidth usage and eliminates the
need for forward error correction.
•
PURE3 streams always contain video or graphic elements.
•
PURE3 streams may contain audio, data, and whiteboard elements that are associated
with the video and graphic elements.
Streaming media (stream) — This term refers to multimedia that is constantly received
by (and normally presented to) an end-user while being delivered by a streaming provider.
Internet television is a commonly streamed medium. Streaming media (stream) in this guide
refers to a PURE3 media stream that is produced by a VN-Matrix encoding device.
Element — This term refers to the video, graphics, audio, (user) data, and whiteboard
(annotation data) content that is contained within a stream.
Device license — This term refers to the number of licensed features that are available on
a device within a VN-Matrix system. All devices contain a default license that offers a default
level of functionality. See the VNM Enterprise Controller User Guide (at www.extron.com)
for information about device licenses.
Controller license — This term refers to the license that is supplied to the VNM Enterprise
Controller. See the VNM Enterprise Controller User Guide for information about device
licenses.
(User) Data — This refers to the transfer of user data between an encoder and a decoder.
User data is created at the encoder, placed into the PURE3 stream, and sent to the
decoder. The data is received in the same form that it was transmitted. This method of data
transfer is unidirectional and can only be sent from an encoder to a decoder.
Whiteboard (wb) data — Also known as annotation data, whiteboard data outputs text
and simple pointer annotation onto local displays that are connected to VN-Matrix encoders
or decoders. This type of data is bidirectional, which allows a decoder to send whiteboard
data to an encoder.

VN-Matrix System Port Usage
The VN-Matrix system uses a variety of network port numbers for streaming and intercommunication functions. Just as the universal “telnet” function typically uses TCP port
number 23, VN-Matrix uses specific port numbers for its operation.
The table on the following page lists the port numbers used by the VN-Matrix series
products. The port numbers are, in most cases, for the sender. Port numbers used for
receiving are less important in regards to security.
When configuring a network, make sure it allows traffic on the ports required for your given
application. The ports highlighted in yellow accommodate most simple applications.

VNR 100 Setup Guide
Mounting the VNR 100
This section provides information on installing the VNR 100 into a rack cabinet. Rack
installation requires the use of the provided rack mount kit.
UL Guidelines for Rack Mounting
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) guidelines are relevant to the safe installation of
these products in a rack:
1. Elevated operating ambient temperature — If the unit is installed in a closed or
multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment
may be greater than room ambient temperature. Therefore, install the equipment in
an environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (TMA: +122 °F,
+50 °C) specified by Extron.
2. Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in the rack so that the equipment gets
adequate air flow for safe operation.
3. Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack so that uneven mechanical
loading does not create a hazardous condition.
4. Circuit overloading — Connect the equipment to the supply circuit and consider the
effect that circuit overloading might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
Consider the equipment nameplate ratings when addressing this concern.
5. Reliable earthing (grounding) — Maintain reliable grounding of rack-mounted
equipment. Pay particular attention to supply connections other than direct connections
to the branch circuit (such as the use of power strips).
Rack Mounting Using Rack Rails
The rack mounting kit is used to mount the VNR 100 in a Telco rack or a standard 19 inch
(48.3 cm) wide rack with four vertical posts, one in each corner.
ATTENTION:
• When multiple units are mounted in the rack, load the rack from the bottom to the
top, with the heaviest unit at the bottom.
• If this is the only unit mounted in the rack, it should be mounted at the bottom.
• With the rack rails collapsed, this unit requires a minimum rack depth of
25.5 inches (64.8 cm).
• The total room required with the rack rails fully expanded, is 33.5 inches (85.1 cm).
VNR 100 • Reference Information
22
The supplied rack mount kit includes 2 sets of rail assemblies, 6 rail mounting brackets, and
mounting screws.
NOTE: The rail assemblies are specific for the left and right.
Each of the rail assemblies consists of three sections: two inner fixed rails that are secured
to the VNR 100 recorder chassis and a two-section expandable rack rail that is secured
directly to the rack. The front inner rails (right and left) are already attached to the chassis.
