AJA FS1-X  Problem Solved Quick Start Guide
FS1-X
Quick Start Guide
Overview
Matching up and synchronizing disparate video and audio formats is a critical part of any
broadcast, mobile or post-production environment. Within its compact 1RU chassis, the
FS1-X integrates an amazing array of video and audio connectivity and processing. The
FS1-X simultaneously works with 3G/HD/SD-SDI 10-bit broadcast quality video and
incorporates embedded audio, AES, MADI, and analog audio. Utilizing AJA’s remarkable
conversion algorithms, FS1-X supports up, down and cross-conversion between SD and
HD signals for the highest quality output possible. An internal 224x224 audio matrix also
allows full routing of MADI and all audio coming from SDI, fiber, AES, HDMI and analog
sources for an incredible amount of audio processing capability in a single box.
Frame Rate Conversion The factory-installed motion adaptive Frame Rate Converter (FRC) option enables high
Option quality conversions between different frame rate families for virtually unlimited
international standards support. The three video frame rate families are:
• 59.94/29.97/23.98
• 50/25
• 24
The standard FS1-X (without FRC) can also perform conversions, but only between frame
rates that are within the same frame rate family, using add/drop frames.
Two Video Processors The FS1-X is equipped with two Video Processors. Video Processor 1 is fully featured with
frame sync, proc amp, color correction, and other processing, and is able to receive the
FRC option. Video Processor 2 has a frame sync and can provide sidebar or letterbox
video to Video Processor 2, but does not otherwise perform any video processing.
Two Operating Modes The FS1-X has two modes of operation: 1 Channel mode and 2 Channel mode.
1 Channel mode is available when the FRC option is present and enabled. In this mode,
the full range of frame rate conversions are available using Video Processor 1. Video
Processor 2 is disabled in this mode.
Version 1.0, April 23, 2014, Copyright © 2014 AJA Video Systems,
®
2 Channel mode is available when the FRC is absent or has been disabled. In 2 Channel
mode frame rate conversions within the same frame rate family are supported on Video
Processor 1, and Video Processor 2 is also available for use.
FSX-1 Control The FS1-X front panel buttons and knobs control menus in the display, allowing you to
fully configure the system. Front panel LEDs report important system statuses. The FS1-X
also has an internal web server that allows remote monitoring and control of parameter
setting via an Ethernet 10/100/1000 network-attached computer running a webbrowser. Firmware updates are also performed from the web browser.
Quick Start Guide
Objectives
The FS1-X can be extremely simple to use, because of its ability to detect incoming signal
formats and automatically apply the correct video processing for the selected output
format. However, the FS1-X is also extremely powerful and can be flexibly configured to
perform a wide variety of tasks.
This Quick Start Guide is designed to help you get your FS1-X up and running for the first
time, and confirm it is operating properly. It also provides step-by-step instructions that
demonstrate a few FS1-X signal processing examples.

Installation Summary
1. Unpack the shipping box, inspect and inventory the contents, and read the latebreaking news sheet, if any.
2. Install any optional AJA Fiber I/O modules by sliding them into the Fiber slots in the
back. Use only AJA modules.
NOTE:
The “Stand Alone Tests” on page 3 can be performed with the FS1-X sitting on a bench to test
system operation before physically installing the unit.
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. Make signal I/O connections to the FS1-X back panel as shown in Figure 1 on page 3.
5. Connect one or two power cords to the FS1-X and mains AC (100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz,
55 Watts). For redundancy, use both cords and connect them to separate branch
circuits. The FS1-X power supply is autosensing and adjusts to the available power.
6. Connect your computer to the FS1-X using a CAT5 Ethernet cable to the FS1-X RJ45
10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN connector. You can connect directly or via a network
device such as a switch, hub, bridge, etc. The FS1-X automatically senses and adjusts
to either a straight-through or crossover cable.

First Power Up
The following workflow powers up the FS1-X and demonstrates some example alarms.
Setup • Ensure the FS1-X is completely disconnected (all video, audio, network, and power
connector ports are empty).
Procedure 1. Connect both FS1-X power cords to mains AC and allow time for the unit to boot up.
Observe the front panel LEDs.
• If the FRC PRES LED lights blue, your FS1-X is equipped with the FRC option and is
able to operate in either 1 Channel or 2 Channel Mode. If this LED is off, your unit
can only operate in 2 Channel mode.
• The ALARM LED will light red, indicating an alarm condition, and the REF LED will
be off. By default the F1-X is configured to operate genlocked to an external
reference signal.
2. Press the front panel STATUS button, then turn the SELECT knob to view various
Status menus.
• The Status menus will report No Input for the Video Processor video inputs (the
ports are disconnected), and the GEN (Genlock) parameter will report Ref
(configured for external reference) but will also report No Input or No Ref.

If you connect a 625i25 frame rate color black reference signal, the alarm condition above
persists because the default FS1-X output frame rate setting is 29.97/59.94. To clear this alarm
when using 625i25 reference, press the SYSTEM button, turn the SELECT knob to 9 Output
Frame Rates, and turn the ADJUST knob to choose 50/25.
4. Disconnect one of the power cords, leaving the other attached.
• The ALARM LED will light red, and the PWR LED of the power supply with the
removed cord will turn off.
5. Reconnect the power cable. The ALARM LED will turn off and the PWR LED will light.
This workflow confirms the FS1-X powers up successfully and reports reference and
power supply alarms.

FS1-X Network Setup
The following instructions summarizes ways to configure the FS1-X to communicate with
a computer directly or over a network.
Networking Using
DHCP or Default
Static IP
The FS1-X factory default configuration automatically looks for a DHCP server to issue an
IP address. If your network includes a DHCP server, plug the FS1-X into the network and
connect with the FS1-X as follows:
1. Press the CONFIG button.
2. Turn the SELECT knob to navigate to config parameter 2.2. Note on a piece of paper
the DHCP-supplied IP address shown.
3. With your laptop or desktop computer connected to the same LAN as the FS1-X and
DHCP enabled, type the IP address you noted into the browser address field and
press Enter. You should now see the FS1-X’s browser Status screen.
If the FS1-X cannot get an address from the network DHCP server, the FS1-X will
automatically use a preset factory static IP address of 192.168.0.2. You can access the
FS1-X using the default static address as follows:
1. Set your computer's IP address to whatever address you prefer.
2. Set the computer’s Subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 (most PCs default to the proper
netmask when the address is set).
3. Set the gateway address, if used, to match the FS1-X default: 192.168.0.1.
Alternatively, change the FS1-X gateway address to match your gateway:
A. Press CONFIG, turn SELECT to 2.4 Default Gateway, push and then turn ADJUST to
change the first group of digits.

numbers.
C. Continue using SELECT and ADJUST to set the full address.
D. When finished, push ADJUST momentarily to save the address.
4. Run a browser on the computer and type “192.168.0.2” (the factory static IP address).
You should now see the FS1-X’s browser status screen.
Networking the
FS1-X Using Your
Own Static IP
If you don’t want to use DHCP or the default static IP address, you can set your own static
IP address:
1. Select the CONFIG button and use the SELECT knob to navigate to parameter 2.1 IP
CONFIG. Use the ADJUST knob to select Static.
2. Turn SELECT to navigate to parameter 2.2 IP ADDRESS. The display shows the default
static IP address: 192.168.0.2.
3. Change the IP address as follows.
A. Push the ADJUST knob momentarily so that the first octet (set of numbers) blinks,
and then turn ADJUST to change the numbers.
B. Turn SELECT to advance to the next set of numbers, and turn ADJUST to set these
numbers.
C. Continue using SELECT and ADJUST to set the full address.
D. When finished, push ADJUST momentarily to save the address.
4. Turn SELECT to advance to 2.3 Subnet Mask. Use the SELECT and ADJUST knobs as in
the previous step to set the desired subnet mask.
5. Turn SELECT to advance to 2.4 Default Gateway. Use the SELECT and ADJUST knobs as
in the previous step to set the desired gateway address.
6. Run a browser on the computer and type in the IP address you set for the FS1-X. You
should now see the FS1-X’s Status screen.
Web Browser Menu
Summary
Figure 2 on page 7 summarize web browser menu operation. The settings generally
correspond to the front panel display parameters, providing you two methods of
controlling the FS1-X. To see the equivalent front panel display parameter number, hover
the cursor over a setting.
Drop Down Parameter
Operation
Most FS1-X parameters available on the browser are selected from a drop-down list. The
currently active parameter is displayed. Click on the down arrow symbol next to the
parameter to display the list and select an alternative value. The FS1-X will immediately
operate with the new setting.
Slider Operation
Some screens contain slider controls for setting values. To set a value, you can click on a
slider to select it and then use the mouse to drag the slider to the position you desire. For
fine tuning, while the slider is selected (highlighted by a blue border), use the keyboard
left and right arrow keys to change the value one unit at a time. After setting a slider's
position, click on the page's background area (blue highlight turns off ) to ensure the
change is confirmed and saved.
Sub-Menus
Some parameters, when activated, open sub-menus. The sub-menus are a lighter gray
color and have a collapse/expand button on the parent selection. This lets you collapse
the sub-menus to make it easier to configure the system. The collapsed setting only stays
in effect until the user reconnects or refreshes the browser.

SD to Sidebar HD
over Matte
The following workflow demonstrates converting an SD SDI input to an HD SDI output
with a matte sidebar background. If the input, reference, and output signal formats are all
in the same frame rate family, this processing can be performed with or without the FRC
option. This example uses a 525i59.94 input and generates a 1080i59.94 output.
Setup • Ensure the FS1-X is receiving a valid reference signal.
• Connect a 525i59.94 SD SDI signal to the SDI1 input on the rear of the FS1-X. Once
connected the FS1-X front panel VID IN 1 LED will light.
• Connect the FS1-X HDMI output connector to a compatible HDMI display.
• Connect the FS1-X SDI1 video output connector to a compatible monitor.
NOTE:
The FS1-X factory default setting routes the output of Video Processor 1 to the SDI1, Fiber 1,
HDMI, and Analog Video output connectors. All these outputs are active simultaneously.
Procedure 1. SYSTEM menu:
• Select 8 Genlock Source, and adjust to Reference.
• Select 9 Output Frame Rates, and adjust to 59.94/23.98.
2. VIDEO OUTPUT menu:

This workflow confirms the FS1-X upconverts incoming video with matting.
HD to Letterbox SD
over Video
The following workflow recalls the FS1-X to factory preset, downconverts a 1080i SDI
input to 525i SDI letterbox, keys the letterbox over a second 525i SDI video input, and
displays the result on the FS1-X Composite video output. This processing requires
2 Channel mode.
Setup • Connect a10801i59.94 HD SDI signal to the SDI1 input on the rear of the FS1-X. This
signal will be downconverted and letterboxed.
• Connect a 525i59.94 SD SDI signal to the SDI2 input on the rear of the FS1-X. This signal
will be the background.
• Ensure the FS1-X is receiving a valid reference signal compatible with the SDI2 input.
• Connect the FS1-X Composite video output to an analog video monitor.
Procedure 1. PRESET menu:
• Select 1.0 Factory Preset and recall that preset.
• Front panel interface: Push in the ADJUST knob momentarily.
• Web page interface: Select Factory Preset Recall.
This recall sets the following default values for this procedure:
• SYSTEM 1.1 Vid 1 Input is set to SDI 1
• SYSTEM 1.2 Vid 2 Input is set to SDI 2
• SYSTEM 3 Vid 1 Output Mode is set to Normal
• VIDEO OUTPUT 4 Analog is set to Vid 1.
2. If the FRC option is present, go to the SYSTEM menu:
• Select 10 FRC Enable and adjust to Disable (this sets 2 Channel mode). This menu is
not available on FS1-X units lacking the FRC option.
3. VIDEO PROC menu:
• Select 2 Video Output Format, and adjust to 525i59.94.
• Select 6 Background Fill, and adjust to Vid 2.

Conversion Across
Frame Rate Families
The following workflow converts a 1080i59.94 SDI input to 1080i50 SDI output, using the
optional FRC. This processing requires 1 Channel mode operation. In this example frame
rate conversion with and without the FRC option is demonstrated.
Setup • Ensure the FRC is installed. The front panel FRC PRES LED must be lighted blue. The
FS1-X Status web page FRC Option setting must read Present. The web page may also
report Disabled, which is the FRC’s normal state when it is not actively converting video.
• Ensure the FS1-X is using a valid reference. For this example, if an external reference
signal is used for genlock it must be 50 Hz to match the frame rate converted output.
Alternatively the FS1-X can be set to Free Run.
• Connect a10801i59.94 HD SDI signal to the SDI1 input on the rear of the FS1-X. This
signal must be moving video (not a static test pattern) to properly demonstrate frame
rate conversion.
• Connect the FS1-X SDI1 video output connector to a compatible monitor.
Procedure 1. SYSTEM menu:
• Select 8 Genlock Source.
• If your external genlock signal is 50 Hz, adjust to Reference.
• Otherwise select Free Run.
• Select 9 Output Frame Rates, and adjust to 50/25.
• Select 10 FRC Enable and adjust to Enable (this sets 1 Channel mode). The FRC
ACTIVE LED will light blue because it is converting 59.94 Hz video to 50 Hz.
2. Observe the monitor. Motion will be completely smooth without momentary jumps
or discontinuities, and the FS1-X will not report any alarms.
To demonstrate non FRC operation and alarms, do the following:
3. SYSTEM menu:
• Select 10 FRC Enable and adjust to Disable. The FRC ACTIVE LED will go off and the
ALARM LED will light red, because this conversion requires the FRC. FS1-X status
reporting will be as shown below:
