BLUSTREAM MULTICAST SETUP GUIDE
IP100 Firmware Update
Prior to running the Blustream Multicast PC wizard program it is important that the Blustream IP100UHD-TX/RX products are loaded with the
latest firmware.
Updating the Blustream Multicast product firmware can be acheived in 2 ways:1) Using the ‘Firmware Update’ feature in the ‘advanced’ section of the PC program. This is the easiest method.
2) Using the products own Web GUI interface.
The below instructions are a step-by-step guide to upgrading the firmware in each Multicast product for new units that are yet to be
configured. The firmware process must be completed one-by-one due to all products being shipped with the same standard factory set
default IP address. Failure to do so may end up currupting the firmware in the products, resulting in product failure.
Prior to upgrading the firmware in Blustream Multicast products using either of the above methods it is important you first complete the
below instructions.
1) In order to communicate with the Blustream Multicast hardware your computer will need to be physically connected to either:a) A POE network switch using a Ethernet network cable which is in turn connected to the Blustream IP100UHD-TX/RX products
b) Connected directly to the Blustream IP00 products which must be powered locally using a 24-56V DC power supply
2) IMPORTANT: Prior to connecting the Blustream Multicast IP100 product to your network switch/local power supply it is
important that the product is forced into ‘firmware update mode’.
To activate Firmware Update Mode:
a)
Press both the ‘CH SELECT UP’ and ‘CH SELECT DOWN’ buttons located on the product front panel at the same time. Whilst holding
these buttons down...
b)
Insert the POE network cable or local 24-56V power supply
c)
Do not release the buttons until the product show ‘PG’ in the status window on the front panel (as below)
3) In order to be able to communicate with the Blustream IP products your computer must also be in the same IP range as the
Blustream IP100UHD-TX/RX default IP address. If you are unsure how to update your computer IP range follow the ‘Changing
your computer IP address’ instructions at the rear of this guide.
The default IP address of all Multicast IP100UHD-TX/RX is:-
169.254.100.254

BLUSTREAM MULTICAST SETUP GUIDE
New Project Configuration
The Blustream PC Program includes a wizard for configuring all components of the Multicast system. It has been designed to include a simple
step-by-step tutorial that will guide you through the setup procedure, resulting in a system in which all components are assigned a name and
IP address ready for basic system use.
It is important to follow the wizard instructions. Failure to do so will result in incorrectly configured Multicast products.
Please see below summary of the setup process:-
Step 1 - Connecting your PC to the network switch/Multicast product
In order to configure the Blustream Multicast products your PC must first be physically connected to the products . this can be acheived by:
a) A POE network switch using a Ethernet network cable which is in turn connected to the Blustream IP100UHD-TX/RX products
b) Connected directly to the Blustream IP00 products which must be powered locally using a 24-56V DC power supply
In order to be able to communicate with the Blustream IP products your computer must also be in the same IP range as the
Blustream IP100UHD-TX/RX default IP address. If you are unsure how to update your computer IP range follow the ‘Changing
your computer IP address’ instructions at the rear of this guide.
Click ‘YES’ to continue with the wizard configuration

Step 2- Confirming the number of Multicast Transmitter and Receiver products to be setup
The following window is used to confirm how many Transmitter and Receiver products you are about to configure.
It is important that these totals are correct as the wizard will guide you through the setup of each product one-by -one.
During the setup of each product the PC wizard will automatically assign an IP address.
The number of Transmitters or Receivers must not exceed 762 devices due to the auto IP address configuration.
Transmitters
The first product to be assigned an IP address is a IP100UHD-TX Transmitter which be given the IP address of 169.254.3.1. The next
Transmitter will be assigned an IP address of 169.254.3.2 and so on and so on....
Once the IP range of 169.254.3.x is filled the PC wizard will auto assign an IP address of 169.254.4.1.
Once the IP range of 169.254.4.x is filled the PC wizard will auto assign an IP address of 169.254.5.1.
Receivers
After all Transmitter products have been setup the PC wizard will automatically assign an IP address to the Multicast Receivers. The first
IP100UHD-RX Receiver which be given the IP address of 169.254.6.1. The next Receiver will be assigned an IP address of 169.254.6.2 and so on
and so on....
Once the IP range of 169.254.6.x is filled the PC wizard will auto assign an IP address of 169.254.7.1.
Once the IP range of 169.254.7.x is filled the PC wizard will auto assign an IP address of 169.254.8.1.
The above automatic IP configuration is why the system component quantity limitations are 762 Transmitters and 762 Receivers.

Step 4 - Setup warning!
Each Blustream Multicast products is shipped with the default IP address of 169.254.100.254
Each time the PC wizard looks for a new Multicast component to configure it is looking for the default IP address ONLY.
It is important that only 1 new Blustream Multicast product is connected/configured at a time. Multiple products with the same
IP address will cause conflict on the network until configured correctly.

System Search
The system search page is used for times when you do not have a saved system file or have not configured a system from scratch. Using the
search system you are able to find all ‘ACTIVE’ Blustream Multicast products that are on the system.
In order for the search function to work you must know the IP address of at least ONE of the Multicast products installed. If you have used the
PC wizard program then we would advise to use the first product that is configured which is a Blustream IP100UHD-TX with the address of
169.254.3.1.
Enter the Multicast product IP address and click ‘BEGIN SEARCH’. The system will report back all Multicast products found.
Please note:•
The search feature will not recall custom assigned names of the Multicast products, only ID and IP address. For this information you will
require the saved system file.
•
If you use your own static IP address for the Multicast products (not advised) then you will need to find the IP address of a single unit.
Blustream would recommend using programs such as ‘FING’, ‘IP SCANNER’ and ‘BONJOUR BROWSER’.
