An audio/video cable allows the VBrick appliance to receive audio/video from your input
source (a camera, VCR, DVD, etc.)
An Ethernet cable connects the VBrick to the
network.
When powered-on, the VBrick appliance automatically runs through a self-test.
treamPlayer Plus 4.3 or higher lets you receive
S
streaming video, originating from the VBrick, on
a local PC.
Once installed, you can use the StreamPlayer Plus
application to view content being streamed from the
VBrick appliance.
1. Plug one end of the cable into the Ethernet
port on the VBrick appliance.
1. Insert the power connector that comes with
the unit into the power receptacle on the rear
of the appliance.
When you power on the appliance, if a DHCP server is present on
your network, the VBrick will automatically get its IP Address and
Subnet Mask from the DHCP server. If this happens, no additional
configuration is required; go to Step 5 and install StreamPlayer Plus. If
the VBrick cannot get an IP address from the DHCP server (or a server
is not present), you will need to set the IP address manually using
the handheld IR Remote Control. Similarly, if your network requires a
Gateway IP Address, and this is not provided by the DHCP server,
you will also need to enter this manually.
1. A

camera, DVD, or VCR), connect a BNC (composite video) cable to Composite In on Slot
1 of the VBrick appliance.
2. P
lug the other end of the cable into the network switch.
3. When power is applied, the green LEDs to
the right of the Ethernet port will illuminate
and the Activity light will flicker.
2. C
onnect Left and Right cables from the
audio source to Audio In on the appliance.
2. C
onnect the other end to a conventional
110/220 VAC power source.
3. T he Power In LED on the back of VBrick
will illuminate and the front panel will display
status messages during the self-test.
4. W
