AMX NMX-ENC-N2135 Encoder svsi n2000 series jpeg2000 /lan Quick Start Guide
SVSI N2135/N2235 Keyboard and Mouse Series
The NMX-ENC-N2135 Encoder and NMX-DEC-N2235 Decoder feature keyboard and
mouse extension over IP, input and output scaling, serial, balanced audio, HDMI video
connection, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and 1G SFP support for uncompressed
networked AV video.
The N2135 Encoder converts video, audio, and control to IP packets for switching and
distribution over standard networks. The N2235 Decoder accepts the HD over IP
streams and converts them back to synchronized audio and video to allow any video
source to any display.
One USB Mini-B Port
(supported by Encoders)
Two USB Standard-A Ports
(supported by Decoders)
1G SFP port accepts compatible
fiber transceivers or direct attach
cables (fiber or copper cabling)
NOTE: The SFP port supports 1000BASE-X or 1000BASE-T connections only.
Basic Installation Guidelines
PoE: Connect the unit’s P0 port to an active, PoE-enabled network
External power supply: If not using PoE for power, connect a 12V
regulated power supply (part number N9312) to the unit’s two-pin
terminal block plug connector labeled +12V 2A.
PoE units: If using PoE to power the unit, you should already have
a network connection.
Externally powered units: If not using PoE, connect the P0 port to
the network using an Ethernet cable, or connect the P1 port to the
network with the appropriate cable (fiber transceiver or directattach cable is required).
Daisy-chain configuration: Once network connection is
established to one unit, you can daisy chain additional units by
connecting Ethernet cables between devices using their P0 and/or
P1 ports. Keep in mind that the number of units supported in this
configuration is limited by bandwidth (total aggregate streams
must be less than 1 Gb/s).
NOTE: PoE power is only supplied to the unit connected directly to
the network. All other units in the daisy-chain must have an
external power supply.

Establishing Connection
N2X35 devices are shipped with DHCP as their default IP mode. The IP address is
assigned automatically based on the network DHCP server. If no DHCP server is found,
the unit will use Auto IP mode instead (with a default IP address of
Before using your N2X35 unit, it must be configured using the free N-Able device
management software. However, you will not be able to configure units until they are in
the same subnet as the host computer. The sample steps below show how the required
changes (to the host computer’s IP settings) are made in a Windows environment.
Steps for IP address configuration (for Windows 8):
From the Control Panel > Network and Internet dialog box, select Network and
Sharing Center.
Select Change adapter settings.
Select the wired interface connected to your AV network.
Click the Properties button.
Scroll down in the list to the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) option.
Highlight it and click the Properties button.
Enable the Use the following IP address option, and enter the static IP address
provided to you by your network administrator.
NOTE: If the computer does not need Internet access, you can simply enter a unique IP address with a Subnet mask. Please contact your
network administrator if you are unsure of how to configure the existing interface. If the
computer has a statically-assigned IP address, click on the Advanced button. Then click
Add to enter a unique address with a subnet of
Steps for auto discovering devices on the network:
Use the host computer to download and install the latest version of N-Able:
PC version -
Mac version -
Attach your N2X35 unit(s) to the layer-3 network switch.
Disable the wireless adapter on your computer (it must be hard-wired to the
Connect the host computer to the layer-3 network switch.
Open the N-Able application.
If all devices do not appear automatically, click the Auto Discover button on the
Unit Management tab. This issues a broadcast command that will discover all units
even if they are not in the same IP subnet.
Logging in Using N-Able Software
Once the host IP address is configured properly, you can view all discovered units using
the N-Able software. Access the N2X35 units from the following tabs:
• Unit Management tab - N2000 Encoder/Decoder is listed in the Type field.
• Video Matrix tab - N2X35 units are found on the N2000 sub-tab of this screen.
Double-click the unit’s name (in one of the lists mentioned above) to view its control
page. If prompted, enter admin and password for the default username and password.
Once logged in, you can change the username and password (using the options on the
unit’s Settings page).
NOTE: If you would like for N-Able to support auto-login to your units, make sure N-Able’s
Device Auto-login settings match the unit’s username and password (by selecting N-Able
> Settings from the N-Able tool bar).
NOTE: N2X35 units force HTTPS connections, so your web browser may give you a
security warning. N-Able on Windows will ask you to download OpenSSL for Windows to
connect HTTPS.
Basic KVM Setup
The N2135 Encoders and N2235 Decoders are KVM-capable. By default, USB
connections are enabled and configured to follow video switching. Follow these steps
for basic KVM setup. To learn about some of the more advanced KVM capabilities, see
the section Advanced KVM Setup (with added security features).
On the N2135 Encoder, connect the USB Mini-B port (designated by a laptop
icon) to the computer to be controlled.
Connect the computer’s video output to the Encoder’s HDMI IN port.
On the N2235 Decoder, connect the HDMI OUT to the display.
Connect a USB keyboard and mouse to the Decoder’s USB Standard-A ports (they
can be plugged into either port).
NOTE: For wireless devices, simply plug the wireless signal receivers into these
ports. For keyboard and mouse combos (with a single connection) use the
keyboard port.
Using N-Able, click the Unit Management tab.
Click the Auto Discover button to discover your new devices (if you have not
already done so).
Once discovery is complete (and you see the new units listed in N-Able), click the
Video Matrix tab.
On the matrix, click the common cell for the desired Encoder/Decoder streaming
combination. See the screen shot below for an example.
Click the Take button to make the change to your matrix. The radio button turns
green to indicate the connection was successful.
Enabling this cell causes

to Conference Room Encoder.
Click Take to apply changes.
Video/USB Switching Options
USB Follows Video: By default, units can be switched using N-Able without modifying
the configuration. When you switch video streams (using the matrix as shown above)
the USB functionality will follow the video.
Independent USB Switching: Use N-Able’s USB Matrix tab to switch USB control
(without affecting video).
Independent Video Switching: To switch video streams without affecting USB control,
first select N-Able > Settings from N-Able’s main menu. When the N-Able Settings
dialog box is displayed, disable the USB follows Video switching for KVM units. Now you
can use the Video Matrix to switch video streams only.
Advanced KVM Functionality: To have the ability to use KVM hotkeys for switching, KVM
Advanced Settings must be enabled on the individual unit (select KVM from the top of
the unit’s web interface). The next section discusses these settings in more detail.
Advanced KVM Setup (with added security features)
You can configure devices for more advanced KVM operation on the Encoder and
Decoder KVM pages. To access these pages, double-click the unit’s name in the matrix
and click KVM at the top of the Settings page (see below).
NOTE: Many of these options are easier to manage in N-Able’s KVM Wizard (especially in
large configurations). Select Tools > KVM Wizard from the N-Able main menu to access
the wizard.
Last Revised: 8/2017
The following table describes some of the more advanced functionality. It is important
to note that many of these options only appear on the KVM page when USB is enabled
as well as KVM Advanced Settings.
Permission Levels
Determines which Decoders can communicate with which
Encoders. A Decoder must have a permission level that is
equal to or greater than the Encoder in order for
communication to be successful.
KVM Encoders table
Use the KVM Encoders table (on the Decoder’s KVM page)
• Let the Decoder know the Encoder passwords it needs to
establish communication.
• Assign Encoder hotkeys.
• Add/remove Encoders from the Decoder’s list.
By default, KVM streams are encrypted with a common
password. You can change the password on the Settings
page of the Encoder. If you change Encoder passwords, you
will need to supply the new information to the Decoders to
allow communication to continue.
A Decoder only receives password information for the
Encoders on the network that have been associated with
that Decoder as mentioned previously.
To use hotkeys for easy switching, enable KVM Directory
Screen Enable on the Decoder’s KVM page. You can now
access the KVM Directory Screen at any time by pressing the
<Scr Lk> button twice on the keyboard connected to the
Decoder. This screen displays all Encoders associated with
that Decoder (and their corresponding hotkey).
Import and export KVM CSV
Multiple Encoders and Decoders can be configured from a
single CSV file (which is generated using the KVM Wizard in
N-Able). Once all changes are made, upload the file to each
unit using its KVM page.Click the Choose File button,
browse to the CSV file you exported from the wizard, and
click the Upload button.
Warning! You must assign KVM passwords to your Encoders and Decoders (as well as
change the default login password from admin/password) in order for your system to
be secure.
