Quick start steps for Spectrum X in internal storage configuration
For detailed installation steps, refer to the Spectrum System Installation Guide.
1. Rack mount the system
Caution: Electrostatic discharge can damage components. Observe normal ESD
(Electrostatic Discharge) procedures when handling Spectrum X components.
For complete instructions on rack mounting the Spectrum X system, refer to the
instructions provided with the rack mounting kit, or in the Spectrum System Installation
Guide.
2. Install the bezel
Backside view of bezel
1. Align the bezel in front of the chassis so that the Harmonic logo appears at the
top left corner.
2. Connect the USB cable inside the bezel to the right-hand USB port on the
Spectrum X front panel.
3. Keeping the corners aligned, press the bezel straight onto the chassis.
The USB cable will form a loop that fits inside the metal panel of the bezel.
4. Hand-tighten the two captive thumb screws to secure the bezel in place.

3. Install the SystemManager (optional)
To configure, operate, and monitor the Spectrum X, you may use either SystemManager or the Spectrum Management application running on the Spectrum X. Note, at this time,
Spectrum Management manages only the device on which it’s running.
If using Spectrum Management, continue to the next step. After installing the system, refer to the Spectrum release notes for log in details. If using SystemManager, refer to the
Harmonic SystemManager Installation Guide for installation details.

4. Connect to your Gigabit Ethernet network
Spectrum X Rear Panel
Important: Check with your network administrator before connecting to your Ethernet network.
Important: Use only a CAT 6 Ethernet cable, or better, for connecting to the Spectrum X.
Gigabit
Ethernet
1. Ensure that an Ethernet switch with Gigabit uplink capability has been installed in your
equipment rack.
2. If using SystemManager, attach an Ethernet cable to the NIC 1 port on the SystemManager
Platform, or an open LAN port on your client PC. Attach the other end of the Ethernet cable
to the Ethernet switch.
Note: Do not use the NIC 2 port on the SystemManager Platform unless you have configured
SystemManager as a client.
If using Spectrum Management, attach one end of an Ethernet cable to an open LAN port on
your client computer, and attach the other end to the Ethernet switch.
3. Attach an Ethernet cable to one Gigabit Ethernet port on the Spectrum X, and then attach the
other end to an open port on the Ethernet switch. The Spectrum X uses DHCP to obtain an IP
address. As an alternative, an IP address can be assigned to it statically.
4. Attach an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet switch, and then attach the other end to the LAN port
on your client computer used for file transfers. The Spectrum X supports file transfers using
FTP, SAMBA, and AFP protocols.
5. Attach an Ethernet cable to the remaining Gigabit Ethernet port on the Spectrum X, and then
attach the other end to an open port on the Ethernet switch.
5. Connect to an automation system (optional)
All automation systems differ in their array of control connectors and their methods
of interfacing with the Spectrum X. The following steps show one example.
Refer to your automation system’s installation guide for interconnection details.
1. Locate the breakout cable supplied with the Spectrum X.
2. Attach the 60 pin connector of the breakout cable to the DSUB 60 connector on the
Spectrum X.
3. Attach two DB-9 connectors from the breakout cable to customer-supplied DB-9 Male to
Male extension cables. These will be used for playout. Then connect the other ends of
the extension cable to Play ports of the automation system chassis.
4. Attach the GPIO connector on the breakout cable to a DB-9 splitter cable. Connect the
DB-9 connections to the graphics control ports on the automation system.
6. Connect reference video
Important: Failure to connect reference video may result in errors.
Make sure to always connect reference video to at least one SDI I/O card on the
Spectrum X. On a Spectrum X with two SDI I/O cards, one card passes reference
to the other. You may connect a different type of reference (525 or 625) to
each SDI I/O card. However, note that each player attached to a given SDI I/O card
must be configured for the same reference.
1. Connect the breakout cable to the DSUB connector on one of the Spectrum X SDI
I/O cards.
2. Connect the Reference connector on the breakout cable to reference video.
9. Connect AC power
1. If you are connecting to an automation system, make sure the power switch
on the automation system is off. Attach an AC cord to the AC connector on the
automation system.
2. The Spectrum X does not have any power switches. To take full advantage of
the dual redundant power supplies, ensure that separate, isolated power
sources are available. Connect AC cords to the two AC connectors on the
Spectrum X.
3. If using SystemManager, make sure that the power switch for the
SystemManager Platform or client PC is off, and that the power switch for the
Keyboard/MonitorTray is off as well. Attach an AC cord to the AC connector on
your SystemManager Platform or client PC as well as your SystemManager
Keyboard/Monitor Tray.
4. Connect an AC cord to the AC connector on the Ethernet switch (or hub).
Use only CAT 6 Eth cable or better

7. Connect audio and video I/O
Refer to the rear panel diagrams of the Spectrum X SDI I/O card in this guide for reference
when connecting audio and video I/O.
8. Connect to an EAS (optional)
Refer to the Spectrum System Installation Guide for instructions on connecting Spectrum X to
an Emergency Alert System (EAS).
10. Power up the system
1. Apply power to the Ethernet hub or switch.
2. If using SystemManager, apply power to the SystemManager Platform and
Keyboard/Monitor Tray, or client PC.
3. If using SystemManager, log on to the SystemManager Platform or client PC with the user
name: administrator, and the password: omneon. Both entries are case sensitive.
Note: If an error message appears indicating that a network connection is missing, click OK
and continue with the power-up sequence.
4. Apply power to the Spectrum X by connecting the AC cords to the separate power sources.
5. Apply power to the (optional) automation system.
If using Spectrum Management, refer to the Spectrum Release Notes for log in details.
