PEG-NE24-IP-C QUICK GUIDE
DESCRIPTION
The PEG-NE24-IP-C is a stand-alone H.264 digital video PEG channel encoder with a single SD/HD-SDI, or
composite video input, and an IP-encapsulation output via a single SFP Ethernet port. A separate RJ45 10/100
Ethernet port is provided for control and monitoring capability.
The PEG-NE24-IP-C features selectable SDI PCM-embedded audio, or analog left and right audio. A Second
Audio Program (SAP) channel is available via a SDI PCM-embedded audio track. Audio compression can be
either Dolby® Digital, MPEG1-Layer 2 stereo, or AAC stereo.
STEP 1: Setup and Login
First, connect the appropriate input and output video cables and plug in the PEG-NE24 power cable.
Local or remote communication with the unit is only possible through a GUI-based menu via any standard
web browser Chrome or Firefox is recommended, for IE use IE8 minimum. Before being able to communicate
with the unit, the user must configure the computer’s Local Area Network connection to be in the same subnet as the PEG default IP ( 172.16.70.1 ).
Connect an Ethernet cable from your computer to the Control
10/100 port of the PEG.
•Assign “172.16.70.2” as the static IP address for the control
computer.
•Enter “172.16.70.1” (default address) into the Browser to access
the PEG Encoder.
•Login with Username: “admin” and password “pass”.

STEP 2: Configure Encoding
A Global Configuration
Sets global settings that apply to both streams and the possible outputs.
1
2
3
4
1
Video Source: Video input selection of SDI or Composite.
2
Audio Source: Audio input selection of SDI or Analog (L/R).
3
Audio Synchronization: A/V lip-sync adjustment used to adjust your audio to video synchronization.
4
Stream Enable: Stream combinations available are:
Disable: Encoder is not streaming.
Native: Encoder will stream an HD or SD
stream depending on the video input being
HD or SD source.
SD Only: Encoder streams a SD stream regardless of
video input being HD or SD source.
Native + SD: Encoder streams an HD and SD stream
or a SD stream and SD stream depending on video
input being HD or SD source.
B Native Resolution
These settings, for the Primary stream, set parameters for streaming an HD or SD stream, depending on
the video input HD or SD source. See “C: SD Only Stream Settings” for SD-specific settings.
VIDEO SETTINGS
1 Video Encoder Format: MPEG-4/H.264
2a HD Video Bitrate (Mbps): Primary Stream; 3.5 to 13.0 (increments of 0.1) in H.264.
NOTE: Once an input is applied, only the detected resolution will be displayed. Both SD & HD video bitrates are
displayed only when no input is detected.
4 Video Mode Flag: Setting adjusts video encoder mode for decoder compatibility. The following
options are available:
Frame-Only: Encoding mode used when the video input is progressive (ex. 720p). This mode can also be
used to encode interlaced video (ex. 480i or 1080i).
Field-Only: Encoding mode used when the video input is interlaced (ex. 480i or 1080i). Some decoders may
have compatibility issues when decoding field encoding.
NOTE: If the video input is 720P the encoding mode will automatically default to Frame-only mode, even if FieldOnly mode is selected in the menu.
5 Aspect Ratio: As described under “(C) SD-Only Settings”.
STEP 2: Configure Encoding (continued)
AUDIO SETTINGS
6 Audio Encoder Format: Select MP2 for MPEG-1
Audio Layer 2; AC-3 for Dolby Digital AC-3; AAC
(Advanced Audio Coding).
1
2
3
4
7 Audio DialNorm (dB): -1 to -31 (increments of 1).
Provides meta-data for audio playback gain for
Dolby AC-3 compression.
6

8
8 Audio Bitrate: 128, 192 or 384 Kbps.
TRANSPORT STREAM SETTINGS
9a HD TS Bitrate (Mbps): Primary Stream; 0.415 to 25
incremented by 0.125 (TS bitrate must be greater
than 0.400 Mbps + audio bitrate + video bitrate).
IP SETTINGS
9a
11
11 Destination IP / Destination Port: User-defined
unicast or muliticast IP address and port number
determined by downstream network connectivity
device.
12
12 IP Stream TTL: 1 to 255, determined by application.
C
SD Only Stream Settings
2b
This section is for the SD-only stream and sets parameters for
streaming SD off the video input source. Most of the settings
are the same as those found under Native Resolution, with
the following exceptions:
2b SD Video Bitrate (Mbps): 1 to 4 (increments of 0.1)
in H.264. SD Only must be enabled to use under
Native Resolution.
5
9b
5 Aspect Ratio: Affects only SD 480i inputs. Video
display can be set for 4:3 (normal SD) or 16:9
(widescreen). SD Only must be enabled to use
under Native Resolution. When native resolution is
720p or 1080i, the SD only output can be set as the
following:
16:9
4:3 Squeeze - 640 x 480
4:3
4:3 Letterbox - 640 x 480
4:3 Letterbox - 720 x 480
4:3 Center - 640 x 480
4:3 Center - 720 x 480
9b
SD TS Bitrate (Mbps): 2 to 25 incremented by
.125. SD Only must be enabled to use under
Native Resolution.
STEP 3: System Configuration: Network
