SRX-R515P v1.00.0 Networking Functionality
Overview
The SRX-R515P with v1.00.0 software is now available but cannot be connected to the Sony
TMS until the next version up. The SRX-R515P however is still capable of being controlled
over the network and accessing DCP and KDMs from a central storage device. This allows
the R515 to be installed at inaccessible locations, such as projection pods, but still able to be
operated over the network. Below is a list of functions that are described in this document:

Note. It is not recommended to perform ingesting operations or SPL editing during
play-out when using SRX-R515P v1.00.0 software. This is expected to be improved in
the next firmware version.

Network Overview of SRX-R515P
When connecting the SRX-R515P to a network there are two required network connections
to the XCT-S10 server, and one network connection between the XCT-S10 and the XCTM10 (IMB).
XCT‐S10(Server)–NetworkPorts
Figure 1 - XCT-S10 rear view
10 – SPARE Port – Available for future expansion
11 – DATA Port – Used for the transfer of DCPs via FTP or file share
12 – CTRL Port – Used for control data such as accessing the GUI or audio processor
control.
13 – PRJ Port – Used for communication data between the Server and the IMB.
XCT‐M10(IMB)–NetworkPorts

The Switch can be configured for separate VLANs for the control and data traffic . This is up to the installer /customer preference .
If the Storage device has two NICs you may wish to set one to the CTRL subnet and the other to the DATA subnet . If only one NIC is available set two IP addresses for the one NIC .
Figure 3 - Network Storage connection example
The XCT-S10 requires that the CTRL IP address and the DATA IP address are required to
be on separate subnets. This can be used to separate CTRL and DATA traffic through the
use of VLANs on a switch.

SRX-R515P
Configuring Storage Server IP Addresses
The storage server or PC that you wish to connect to the R515 will require an IP address on
the same subnet as the CTRL Port to access the GUI, and an IP address on the same
subnet as the DATA port for the server to be seen as a DCP/KDM source.
This can be achieved in two ways either give separate IPs to two NICs on the server, or
configure one NIC with two IP addresses. Below is the procedure to configure one NIC with
two IP addresses on Windows Server 2008 R2.
ConfiguringtwoIPaddressesonWindowsServer2008
Log on to the server/PC you wish to access the R515 from.
Go to Start Menu > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Centre > Network Adapters.
Right Click on the Network adapter and select Properties > Internet Protocol Version 4
properties.
The following screen will appear.
Figure 5 IP4 properties
Select ‘Use the following IP Address’ and enter an IP in the CTRL in Subnet range. Since
the CRTL in IP is 192.168.101.111 this was chosen as 192.168.101.5.
To add a second IP address to the NIC click the ‘Advanced’ button, then click add to the IP
address section. Since the DATA in IP is 192.168.201.111 this was chosen as
192.168.201.5.

Figure 6 - Adding 2nd IP address to Server
Accessing SRX-R515P GUI over the network
Once the IP addresses are set on the projector and the server/PC you are ready to access
the R515 GUI on the remote server/PC.
You are required to install the latest Chrome or Firefox v14 and above browser for this
purpose, Internet Explorer does not work.
Enter the following address into the browser:
https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/EvansGUI/run.html
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = IP address of CTRL in port of projector
A certificate issue with the website may occur, press “proceed anyway” to continue to the
GUI screen. Please see the SRX-R515P installation manual for more details on how to avoid
this message.

Setting up a folder share for DCP/KDM ingest over the network
On the server/PC you wish to setup a folder for ingesting DCP and KDM content to the R515
follow the steps below.
1234-
Right click on the desktop and create a new folder.
Rename the folder ‘library1’
Right Click on the folder and select ‘share with’ then ‘specific people’
Enter everyone with read/write permissions.
5- Click share and note the share location. Substitute the Server/PC with the DATA IP
address of the server.
a. E.g. \\192.168.201.5\library1
6- This will give all users of the server/PC access to this share folder.
7- Copy DCPs into this folder which you wish to share with the SRX-R515P (make sure
you copy them into separate folders).
8- Inside this Library1 folder if you create a folder named ‘KDM’ you can place KDMs in
this folder which can be browsed to for KDM ingest.
