3. Mount the physical chassis: front rack, rear rack, or deskmount—1 RU x 17.5 inches
(44.45 cm) x 16 inches (40.65 cm). Do not block air flow through the side vents.
4. Connect one or two power cords to the FS2 and mains AC (100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz,
55 Watts). For redundancy, use both cords and connect them to separate branch
circuits. The FS2 power supply is autosensing and adjusts to the available power.
5. Connect your computer to the FS2 using a CAT5 Ethernet cable to the FS2 RJ45 10/
100/1000 Ethernet LAN connector. You can connect directly or via a network
device such as a switch, hub, bridge, etc. The FS2 automatically senses and adjusts
to either a straight-through or crossover cable.
6. Make signal I/O connections to the FS2 back panel as the following figure shows.

Configuration Summary
The following instructions summarize how to configure the FS2 to communicate over the
web and initially pass video and audio. Using the front panel or browser menus described
later in this guide, you can adapt your FS2 configuration to your specific needs.
1. To begin establishing Ethernet communication so you can use a web browser with
the FS2, check that the IP Config menu is set to DHCP for automatic IP addressing:
Press the FS2 CONFIG button and turn the SELECT knob to display menu 2.1 IP
Config, which should read, DHCP. This setting is the most common and allows your
network to automatically set up FS2 IP addressing. If you prefer to manually set up
addressing, turn the ADJUST knob to change the setting to Static Addr.
2. Next, turn the SELECT knob to display menu 2.2 IP Address and write down the
address if you are using DHCP to automatically assign the address. Later, you will
enter this address in your browser address field to view the FS2 browser menus.
If the FS2 cannot automatically get an address or if you selected Static Addr, the IP
address defaults to 192.168.0.2.
To change the static address, push ADJUST momentarily, and then turn it to
change the blinking octet value. Turn SELECT to advance through the values and
use ADJUST to change each one. When finished setting all octet values, push
ADJUST momentarily to save. To revert at any time to the default address, hold
down ADJUST until the address resets.
FS2 Quick Start Guide — Display Menu Summary
3. You can skip this step if you are using DHCP. If you selected Static Addr in step 1,
turn the SELECT knob to display menu 2.3 Subnet Mask. Change this to match the
Subnet Mask setting in your computer's Network panel/preferences, using the same
procedure described above in step 2 to change the static address.
4. You can skip this step if you are using DHCP. If you selected Static Addr in step 1,
turn the SELECT knob to display menu 2.4 Default Gateway. Change this to match the
Gateway Address setting in your computer's Network panel/preferences, using the
same procedure described above in step 2 to change the static address.
5. Open a web browser on the computer connected to the FS2 and enter the FS2 IP
address in the browser's address field. When the browser connects, the FS2 Status
menu screen appears (shown in “Web Browser Menu Summary” on page 4).

FS2 Quick Start Guide — Quick Workflows
Dual Stream 3G
Input/Output
"Dual Stream 3G SDI" means two separate and distinct HD video signals are muxed
together into one 3G SDI signal. (By definition, a "Dual Stream 3G SDI" is a "Level B' 3G SDI.)
The FS2 supports this mode, both at the inputs and the outputs. Also, Dual Stream 3G
automatic operation (signal detection) is possible if proper Format ID is present, or you can
set up Dual Stream 3G manual operation if Format ID is not available.
Dual Stream 3G Video Inputs
The FS2 inputs support Dual Stream 3G SDI Inputs by applying the Dual Stream 3G video to
SDI 1 In and making the second video stream appear in the input crosspoint matrix as SDI 2.
In this case, the SDI 2 input connector is unused.
1
1. Connect a (multiplexed) Dual Stream 3G SDI signal to SDI 1 In.
2. Press the System button, select 4 SDI1 3G Detect, and adjust to Auto Detect or Dual Stream.
3. Select 5 SDI2 Input Protect, and adjust to Dual Stream.
Now both HD signals from a Dual Stream 3G SDI input are available as SDI1 or SDI 2, and
either input can be selected for use in Processor 1 or Processor 2. The Fiber 1 input can also
be used in this way.
Dual Stream 3G Video Outputs
Two separate 1.5 Gb HD video signals, one from Processor 1 and one from Processor 2, can
be combined at the FS2 output into one (muxed) Dual Stream 3G SDI signal. The Dual
Stream 3G output can be selected at the four SDI outputs: SDI 1, SDI 2, Fiber 1, or Fiber 2.
1. Press the Output button.
2. Select one of these menus to specify which output(s) will produce Muxed 3G video:
SDI 1 Out: Select 1.1 SDI1 Video Output, and adjust to Proc1+Proc2.
SDI 2 Out: Select 1.2 SDI2 Video Output, and adjust to Proc1+Proc2.
Fiber 1 Out: Select 2.1 Fiber1 Video Output, and adjust to Proc1+Proc2.
Fiber 2 Out: Select 2.2 Fiber2 Video Output, and adjust to Proc1+Proc2.

Dual Stream 3G
Inputs to
Separate SDI
Outputs
The previous workflow showed you how to use Dual Stream 3G in and produce Dual
Stream 3G out. This variation shows you how to input (muxed) Dual Stream 3G and
demux it to produce separate SDI outputs.
The setup is:
• Apply Dual Stream 3G video (Level B—two 1080i59 images) to SDI 1 In.
The parameter settings are:
• Video 1 Input set to SDI 1.
• Output Format set to 1080i59.94.
• Video Output Mode set to Normal.
The menu operations for this workflow are:
1. Press the System button.
2. Select 4 SDI1 3G Detect, and adjust to Auto Detect or Dual Stream.
(Note that Auto Detect uses the SMPTE 352 embedded Format ID data stream to
automatically detect Dual Stream 3G video.)
3. Select 5 SDI2 Input Protect, and adjust to Dual Stream 3G.
4. Press the Video 1 button, select 2 Output Format, and adjust to 1080i59.94.
5. Select the Output button, select 1.1 SDI1 Video Out, and adjust to Processor 1.
6. Press the Video 1 button, select 1 Video 1 In, and adjust as follows:
a. Adjust to SDI1 (display bottom line shows SDI1-1). The SDI 1 Output is now
1080i59.94 stream 1 of the input video.
b. Adjust to SDI2 (display bottom line shows SDI1-2). The SDI 1 Output is now
1080i59.94 stream 2 of the input video.
As you can see, using the ADJUST knob, you can select which stream of the Dual
Stream 3G input video you want to see at the SDI 1 Output.
The two demuxed video streams are also available at the other outputs—SDI 2,
Fiber 1, and Fiber 2 if you switch those outputs to show the desired input stream.
FS2 Quick Start Guide — Additional Notes
Additional Notes
This section contains additional notes to help you take best advantage of FS2 features.
Interaction of
Presets and GPIs
If you use a GPI input trigger to recall a preset, the recall changes the GPI IN Response
setting to whatever GPI IN Response setting the preset contains. As the following examples
explain, this feature offers both the power of serial recalls and the possibility of triggering a
recall that changes GPI IN Response to something unintended.
Example of a Serial Recall
The advantage of using GPI IN Response with presets is that you can trigger a series or even
a looping series of preset recalls. For example, suppose GPI IN 1 Response in Preset 1 is set to
1 will toggle
Preset 2, and GPI IN Response in Preset 2 is set to Preset 1. Triggering the GPI
between the two presets.
Example of an Unintended Recall
Suppose you trigger GPI IN 1 while the current GPI IN 1 Response parameter is set to Preset 1.
This recalls Preset 1 as expected. However, suppose Preset 1 contains a stored GPI IN 1
Response setting of No Action. If you trigger GPI IN 1 later, expecting to recall Preset 1 again,
the FS2 instead performs No Action. To prevent unexpected changes in the GPI IN Response
parameters, set these parameters as desired before storing presets; in the example, set GPI
IN 1 to Preset 1 before you store Preset 1.
For details of preset and GPI input operations, see the Presets menu and browser screen
topics in the FS2 Installation and Operation Guide.
