This manual we will explain how to establish the communication between LUCI Live software
running on a mobile device and the Prodys ProntoNet hardware codec. The mobile device is
connected to the internet via a 4G connection and our studio (ProntoNet) is connected to the
internet via our local router. To be able to establish this communication we will need to set up the
different devices: LUCI Live will have to know where to send to, the router will need to know where
to transfer the communication coming from LUCI Live and the ProntoNet will need to accept this
Configuring LUCI Live / LUCI Lite
In this example we will use the G722 protocol which is present in both LUCI versions, LUCI Live
and LUCI Lite.
We will need to create a new station, for more details on the stations please consult our online
Name: name your station, this is just an indication.
Protocol: RTP
Codec: G.722
Bitrate: 64 kbps
Jitter buffer: 100 ms
Destination: (this is just an example) this is the public destination address of
your router followed by the port number which is used for port forwarding. In our example this
address will correspond with the IP address
Channels: Mono
Bit depth: 16 bit
Auto record: off
Sample rate: 48.000 Hz
Configuring the Router (port forwarding)
Regardless of what software is on your router, you’ll be required to enter the same type of
information. You’ll see a text field where you can type in the name of the application or service.
Also, you’ll see which incoming port your router should watch for. In our example this will be 5022.
Then, you’ll be able to choose which protocol to watch for. In our example this will be UDP (The
RTP protocol uses UDP). You’ll need to choose which IP address is the destination for this port’s
requests. This is the local IP address of the ProntoNet (in the above example, because the
ProntoNet uses DHCP, the router is able to use a name instead of the ip-address). Lastly, you’ll be
able to choose which port the request should be targeted to on the destination IP (same as the
incoming port 5022).
Configuring Prodys ProntoNet
You can set up the ProntoNet via the hardware user interface, but for this manual we will
use the web interface. The ProntoNet web interface is supported only by the Internet
Explorer, make sure you activate the local IP address of the ProntoNet in the compatibility
settings of the Internet Explorer.
To access the web interface fill in the IP address of the ProntoNet in the menu bar and hit
enter. And click “Control”.
Now you accessed the ProntoNet, you have to configure it for communication.
Hit the “IP-Ethernet” button in the upper left area, choose the RTP protocol and click OK.
Click the “Config” button and choose IP in the left interface tree.
Make sure the “Obtain an IP address automatically” and “Obtain DNS Server address
automatically” options are activated. Then click the Apply button.
Scroll down to the Protocol configuration.
The Streaming protocol should be automatically set on RTP.
Choose the “Luci compatible mode” option.
The “Codec 1 Port:” number is important for the port forwarding configuration. Make sure
you choose the right port number you already set in the router. For this example the port
number is 5022.
Click the “Apply” button and you are ready to stream.
