This chapter includes overviews of each frame and how to choose a frame. See each frame’s chapter for installation and other 
technical details. 


Frame Specification 


A Modular I/O configuration comprises modules selected to perform specific functions, and fitted to frames that accommodate 
their sync, control, and I/O requirements. Before choosing, installing, or servicing a Modular I/O frame, consider the following 
criteria. 


Master Sync Source 


Each frame must have a master audio sync source module for each sync zone, typically an SY983 Sync HD module. However, 
several other I/O modules with a Master mode can be used instead, but not in conjunction with an SY983. 


1093 Double-Sided and 1094 Stagebox frames consist of a single sync zone. The master sync source module must be positioned 
in one of four red sync source slots in the rear plane. The IO95 Multi-Zone frame contains five isolated sync zones. Each zone in 
use requires its own master sync source module. 


A To avoid damaging analog circuits, install a master sync source module in a red reserved slot before applying AC power. 


Chapter 1: Introduction 7 





Control Configuration 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser or console. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for re- 
dundant operation, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


Frame and Module Addresses 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. The AD914 Remote Mic Preamp has 16 CAN ID settings available, whereas most 
other modules have 32. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972's IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. CAN Address switches on the FC972 and SY983 must be 
set to their non-active default values as described in their sections. 


Frame Space 


Frames have module slots in one or two backplanes. A module requires either one or two slots. Frames with two backplanes have 
a front and rear plane. Make sure there is enough physical space in the frame for the specified modules. Each frame’s section in 
this guide lists the required space per frame. 


Power 


Each module is powered by the frame’s +5 VDC rail. Power draw of the modules fitted in the frame must not exceed the frame’s 
PSU capabilities. Power consumption for each module and power capability per frame is listed in each section of this guide. 


Audio Busses 


The Modular I/O backplanes are passive and all frame audio routing is set on the modules: Source audio is assigned to a bus routed 
to a number of destinations. Each Modular I/O backplane contains 32 audio busses (S1-S32). 


All 1/O modules provide a 2CH mode (two audio channels per bus). Many modules also feature an 8CH mode (eight audio chan- 
nels per bus). Source and destination modules must be set to the same mode. 


Some frames consist of multiple audio zones that decouple the audio busses between different frame sections. This supports higher 
signal densities per frame. 


8 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


1093 Double-Sided Frame 


The 1093 Double-Sided Frame is a 3RU frame with redundant PSU and two backplanes. Master sync source module(s) must be in- 
stalled in one (or two) of the four red slots in the rear plane near the power outlet before applying AC power. Spare red slots may 
be used for other modules.

Control 
Configuration 


The 1093 frame consists of one sync zone that requires one master sync source. This is typically an SY983 Sync HD 
module or two SY983s configured in redundant sync mode. 
Another I/O module with Master mode may be used as an alternate master sync source, but not with an SY983. 


Each 1093 must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to control mic preamps remotely and externally configure all modules 
(except analog line in/out and WC984) remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 in a frame. 





Frame Space 


The 1093 frame consists of a front plane with 18 module slots, and a rear plane with 19 module slots. 





Power 


The 1093 frame contains dual-redundant PSUs: 13 A @ 5 VDC. 





Audio Busses 








Each of the two backplanes has 32 audio busses that can be linked or split between backplanes using internal DIP 
switches. Depending on the configuration of the modules fitted, each bus can function in 2CH or 8CH mode.

1094 Stagebox Frame 


The 1094 Stagebox Frame is a 3RU frame with redundant PSU and a single backplane. It is ideally suited for stagebox applications 
and local I/O. Master sync source module(s) must be installed in one (or two) of the four red slots in the rear plane near the power 
outlet before applying AC power. Spare red slots may be used for other modules.

1094 Frame Parameters 


The 1094 Frame consists of one sync zone and requires a single master sync source, typically an SY983 Sync HD module 
or two SY983s configured in redundant sync mode. 
Another I/O module with Master mode may be used as an alternate master sync source, but not with an SY983.

Control The 1094 Frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to control mic preamps remotely and configure externally controlled 
Configuration modules using a web browser. Install only one FC972 in the frame in any position. 





Frame Space The 1094 Frame has one backplane with 19 module slots. 


Power The 1094 frame contains dual-redundant PSUs: 20 A @ 5 VDC. 





The backplane has 32 audio busses each of which may be used in 2CH or 8CH mode, depending on the configuration of 


Nueg Busses the frame’s modules. 














Redundant MADI-over-Fiber Configurations 


The IO94 Frame’s size and power are ideal for stagebox applications in which a MADI I/O module in Master mode serves as the 
master sync source. This lets the frame lock to incoming MADI without connecting a separate sync cable to the stagebox. 


The MM935 MADII/O (coaxial I/O) is useful for shorter distances. The MM936 MADI I/O (redundant multi-mode fiber) is useful 
for longer connections. The MM936 auto-switches between fibers if either fails. Multi-mode fiber can be easily converted to sin- 
gle-mode using third-party products, thus letting standard SMPTE camera cables connect to the stagebox. 


w To use the MM936 MADI I/O (redundant fiber) in a stagebox, the redundant fiber must be converted to coaxial MADI to 
"connect to the console. An MM936+MM9335 may be fitted in a console-side frame to accomplish this conversion. Alternatively, 
if fiber auto-switching is not required, third-party MADI fiber-to-coaxial converters are available. 


10 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


1095 Multi-Zone Frame 


The 1095 Multi-Zone is a 3RU frame with redundant PSU and two backplanes. The frame is divided into five discrete audio/sync 
zones. The 1095 accommodates applications that use multiple I/O streams, each referenced to a separate sync source. 





For example, several Dolby-E encoder/decoders can be fitted into one 1095, each in its own audio/sync zone and referenced to 


separate sync sources. The audio is then fed into a central zone (using AES/EBU with SRC decoupling) where they are routed into 
a single MADI stream.

1095 Frame Parameters 





The 1095 frame consists of five discrete sync zones. Each zone in use requires its own master sync source, typically an 
Master Sync SY983 Sync HD module or two SY983s configured in redundant sync mode. 

Source Another I/O module with Master mode may serve as a master sync source, but not with an SY983 in the same zone. 
Master sync source module(s) can be installed in any slot in a zone. 





Control The 1095 frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to remotely control mic preamps and configure externally controlled 
Configuration modules using a web browser. One FC972 may be fitted in any position within the frame. 





The 1095 frame has two backplanes, each divided into five audio/sync zones. Four zones contain six slots and one zone 


Frame Space contains 13 slots. 


Power The 1095 frame contains dual-redundant PSUs: 13 A @ 5 VDC. 


The 1095 Frame contains five discrete audio/sync zones, each with 32 audio busses. Each bus can be in 2CH or 8CH 


Audio Busses mode depending on the configuration of the modules fitted.

Synchronization 


To configure the frame for synchronization: 


1 To avoid damaging analog circuitry, make sure the AC power is off before beginning the installation. 
2 Install SY983 Sync HD #1 in a red reserved slot and set as Master. 


3 Install SY983 Sync HD #2 in a red reserved slot and set as Slave. 


Control 


To configure remote control, use the FC972 Remote to set the following parameters: 


1 Set the IP Address range to 192.168.0.157~159/255.255.255.0 


2 Set the Gateway to 192.168.0.1 This gateway permits configuration by the console system computer. 


See “FC972 Remote” on page 49 for details. 


Xy This frame does not require console control for mic preamps. Therefore, IP Address range 192.168.0.150-156 is skipped.

Synchronization 


To configure each frame for synchronization: 


1 To avoid damaging analog circuitry, make sure the AC power is off before beginning the installation. 
2 Install the MM936 MADI in a reserved slot in the 1094 Frame and set it as Master. 


3 Install the SY983 in a reserved slot in the 1093 Frame and set it as Master. 


Control 


To set up remote control for the 1094 and 1093 Frames: 


1 Set the FC972 Remote to IP Address range: 
1094: 192.168.0.150-156/255.255.255.0 


1093: 192.168.0.157-159/255.255.255.0 
(192.168.0.150-156 skipped because this frame does not contain mic preamps.) 


2 Set the Gateway for both frames to 192.168.0.1 for configuration by console system computer.

Dolby E Encoder with Discrete Sync in 1095 Multi-zone Frame 


In most cases, Dolby E Encoders may be integrated into any standard frame configuration. However, the Dolby E stream some- 
times uses external sync that is asynchronous with the console sync. Each Dolby E Encoder must then be paired with its own sync 
module isolated from console sync. Audio signals feeding the Dolby E encoders must also be decoupled from console sync. 


The IO95 Multi-zone Frame has five zones, each with its own discrete sync and audio busses. This supports fitting multiple 
Dolby E modules into a single frame and referencing them to different sync sources. The frame shares a common control bus so 
only one FC972 Remote is required to configure all installed modules. 


xy The 1095 has no reserved slots for sync modules. One master sync source module must be installed in each active zone.

Synchronization 


To configure the 1095 for synchronization: 


1 To avoid damaging analog circuitry, make sure the AC power is off before beginning the installation. 


2 Install an SY983 Sync HD in Zones 1-4 and set each as Master. 


Since there are no modules in Zone 5, an SY983 is not necessary. 


24 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Control 


To set up remote control for the 1095 Frame, use the FC972 Remote to configure the following parameters: 


1 Set the IP Address range to 192.168.0.157-159/255.255.255.0. 





2 Set the Gateway to 192.168.0.1 for configuration by console system computer. 


See “FC972 Remote” on page 49 for details. 


y This frame does not contain mic preamps so IP Address range 192.168.0.150~156 is skipped.

Chapter 3: 1093 Modular Frame 29 


Cooling 


Install the 1093 with at least 1 RU of space above and below the frame and unrestricted airflow on the sides. 


Master Sync Module 


Make sure to install a master sync module in one of the red reserved slots before applying AC power. This is typically an SY983 
Sync module, but the following other modules may be used as a master sync module when set to Master mode: MM935 MADI, 
MM936 MADI, DD915 8ch AES I/O, DD916 8ch AES I/O, and HD944 16ch De-embedder. 


Place only one master sync module in the frame except when using two SY983 Sync modules in redundant sync mode. In this 
case, configure the SY983s for redundant sync operation and fit both modules into the frame’s red reserved slots. See page 41. 


The red reserved slots may be used for other modules after a sync module is installed. 


Audio Bus Linking 


The 1093 backplanes are linked by an internal interconnect PCB that contains 32 switches to link or separate the front and back 
audio busses. Some disassembly is required to access these switches. Since the Sync and Control busses of the front and rear planes 
are permanently linked, only one FC972 Remote and one master sync module are required. 


PCB with audio bus switches

30 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Control Bus 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser or console. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for re- 
dundant operation, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module’s system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972’s IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 





The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972's IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface.

Install the 1094 with at least 1 RU of space above and below the frame. There should be unrestricted airflow on the sides and over 
PSU heatsinks. 


Master Sync Module 


Make sure to install a master sync module in one of the four red reserved slots (left side of frame) before applying AC power. This 
is typically an SY983 Sync module but the following other modules may also be used as a master sync module when set to Master 
mode: MM935 MADI, MM936 MADI, DD915 8ch AES I/O, DD916 8ch AES I/O, and HD944 16ch De-embedder. 


Place only one master sync module source in the frame except when using two SY983 Sync modules in redundant sync mode. 
In this case, configure the SY983s for redundant sync operation and fit both modules into the frame’s red reserved slots. See 
“SY983 Sync HD” on page 41. 


The four red reserved slots may also be used for other modules. 


Control Bus 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set using 
the FC972's IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 


A To avoid damaging analog circuits, install a master sync source module in a red reserved slot before applying AC power.

Chapter 5: 1095 Multi-Zone Frame 





The 1095 Multi-Zone Frame is a 3RU frame with redundant PSU and two backplanes. The frame is divided into five discrete au- 
dio/sync zones. The IO95 accommodates applications that use multiple I/O streams, each referenced to a separate sync source. 


For example, several Dolby-E encoder/decoders can be fitted into one 1095, each in its own audio/sync zone and referenced to 
separate sync sources. The audio is then fed into a central zone (using AES/EBU with SRC decoupling) where they are routed into 
a single MADI stream.

Install the 1095 Frame with at least 1 RU of space above and below it and unrestricted airflow on the sides. 


Chapter 5: 1095 Multi-Zone Frame 37 


Audio/Sync Zones 


The 1095 frame consists of five discrete sync zones, each requires its own master sync source. Although this is typically an SY983 
Sync HD module (or two SY983s configured in redundant sync mode), an I/O module with Master mode may serve as a master 
sync source but not in conjunction with an SY983 in the same zone. Examples of modules with Master mode are MM935 MADI, 
MM936 MADI, DD915 8ch AES I/O, DD916 8ch AES I/O, and HD944 16ch De-embedder. 


Only one master sync module source should be present in an audio/sync zone except when using two SY983s in redundant sync 
mode (see “SY983 Sync HD” on page 41). 


Control Bus 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972's IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 


A To avoid damaging analog circuits, install a master sync source module before applying AC power.

Chapter 6: Synchronization Modules 41 


Installation Considerations 


Frames employ the CAN-bus for internal communication. Each module must have a unique System ID that consists of the Frame 
ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972’s IP Address/Subnet/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned 
a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must be set for each externally controllable module. 
Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Preamp has 16. 


The FC972 has a default module CAN ID that does not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus must be ter- 
minated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


w The SY983 has a preset CAN ID that cannot be changed so it will not interfere with other frame modules. 


A Modular I/O frame can employ two methods for remote control and configuration: 


e CAN remote controllers: Set the frame address using the CAN Address switches, available on either the FC972 Remote or 
the SY983. Set the CAN Address on one of these modules only. The other module must be set to a non-active default value 
to avoid conflicts. This older method of setting an explicit CAN Address is used only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS 
remote controller to configure frames. 


+ Web browser interface: In current systems, the frame address is determined by the IP Address assigned with the FC972 Re- 
mote. The CAN Address switches on the FC972 Remote and the SY983 modules must be set to non-active default values to 
avoid conflicts. 








SY983 internal configuration 


A Insert the SY983 into one of the red reserved slots in the 1093 and 1094 Frames before applying AC power. For redundant sync 
operation, place both SY983s in these slots and do not set any other module to Master mode. In a IO95 frame, place one SY983 
in each active sync zone (any slot). 


DEVO - DEV2 


These switches set the frame's overall CAN Address for legacy systems utilizing a CAN remote controller. In systems utilizing the 
web browser interface, DEV 0 - DEV 2 must all be set to ON (right position). 


Y These switches appear on the FC972 Remote and must be set to non-active state on that module as well. 


42 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


DEV X 


The DEV X switch accommodates legacy systems requiring a CAN remote to communicate with up to 16 modules spread across 
two frames. In single SY983 frames, DEVX has no effect. In redundant SY983 frames, the DEVX switch must be set to the same po- 
sition in both modules. 


TERM 
The CAN bus must be terminated only once in a frame on either the SY983 or on an FC972 Remote. 
A Do not terminate the CAN bus twice. 


SLAVE 





For fail-safe operation, a frame may be equipped with a second (redundant) sync module. Both sync modules must be placed in 
one of the red slots at the rear of the frame, close to the mains connectors. 


¢ On one SY983 Sync module, set this switch to MASTER (right position), and set the other to SLAVE. 


¢ Lock both SY983 modules to external sources synchronized to each other. 


This prevents audio signal disturbance caused by phase and/or frequency shifts in case of a switch-over. 


The SLAVE module permanently watches the LOCK status of the MASTER. In case of a MASTER failure (i.e., unlock condition, bro- 
ken hardware), the SLAVE module takes over and continues clocking the frame while the red Slave LED flashes. If the MASTER 
module returns to lock status, it automatically takes over clock distribution, the SLAVE returns to watch mode, and the Slave LED 
lights solid again. 


Sync Source Select 


Select a clock source by turning the front panel’s Source rotary encoder with a small screw driver. An LED display shows the clock 
frequency and sync mode. 


The web interface shows the status of each sync module. In case of a severe sync problem, the Frame Controller can be pro- 
grammed to send an SNMP trap and a GPO may be activated. A higher-ranking monitoring system may poll the status of the sync 
module(s) with SNMP. 


Remote Configuration using a Web Browser 


The SY983 supports configuring parameters using a web browser interface, which requires fitting an FC972 Remote in the frame. 


See “FC972 Remote” on page 35.

Xy The FC972 has a preset CAN ID that cannot be changed so it will not interfere with other frame modules. 


52 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


A Modular I/O frame can employ two methods for remote control and configuration: 

+ CAN remote controllers: Set the frame address using the CAN Address switches, available on either the FC972 Remote or 
the SY983. Set the CAN Address on one of these modules only. The other module must be set to a non-active default value 
to avoid conflicts. This older method of setting an explicit CAN Address is used only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS 
remote controller to configure frames. In 

+ Web browser interface: In current systems, the frame address is determined by the IP Address assigned with the FC972 Re- 
mote. The CAN Address switches on the FC972 Remote and the SY983 modules must be set to non-active default values to 
avoid conflicts. 


DEV 0 - DEV 2 


These switches set the frame’s overall CAN Address for legacy systems utilizing a CAN remote controller. In systems utilizing the 
web browser interface, DEV 0 - DEV 2 must all be set to ON (right position). 





w These switches appear on the SY983 and must be set to non-active state on that module as well. 


CAN-TERM 


The CAN bus must be terminated once on either the SY983 or the FC972. 


A Do not terminate the CAN bus twice. 


Network Address Configurations 


The FC972 and a web browser interface provides the network to connect and configure a Modular I/O frame and its modules. 
Since all Modular I/O frames require a web browser interface to enter module settings, configuring the FC972 Remote is a vital 
part of the installation procedure. 


Microphone Preamp Control 


The AD914 is controlled by System 5 and Max Air consoles by connecting the frame’s FC972 Remote network port to the 
System 5/Max Air network switch. The console surface controls the mic settings (i.e., gain, +48 V phantom power, high-pass fil- 
ter, etc.), which are saved to and recalled from console Title files. 


For proper console mic control, the correct frame address must be used, which is determined by the IP Address of the installed 
FC972 remote. The following table shows addresses used by the system. The FC972 network Gateway setting is 192.168.0.1 in all 
cases (the address of the console’s system computer). 
































Console Mic Control Port | TCC (ML530) Frame IP Address 

Mic Control Port 1 TCC2 192.168.0.150/255.255.255.0 
Mic Control Port 2 TCC3 192.168.0.151/255.255.255.0 
Mic Control Port 3 TCC4 192.168.0.152/255.255.255.0

Mic Control Port 7 TCC8 192.168.0.156/255.255.255.0 








‘CY Console mic control ports may be used by any combination of Modular I/O Mic Pre frames or ML530 Mic-Line Interfaces (con- 
trolled with a TCC serial control interface). Do not double-assign a mic control port by connecting an ML530 to a TCC control 
line and a Modular Frame addressed to that port’s equivalent IP Address. For more information about TCC control, see the 
System 5 or Max Air Operational Manuals. 


Chapter 7: FC972 Remote 53 


Modular I/O frames without AD914 4ch Mic Inputs may also be connected to the console network, which lets the console's system 
computer configure modules. In this case, use an IP address in the range 192.168.0.157-159 to reserve Console Mic Control 
Port IP addresses for future expansion. 


Modular I/O frames that do not contain AD914 4ch Mic Inputs may optionally connect to a separate facility network for config- 
uration and use an appropriate address for that network. 


All module settings are stored in the frame. Once configured, frames that do not contain mic preamps may be removed from the 
network. 


IP Address Setup 


A These procedures should only be performed by individuals familiar with Internet Protocol. 


There are two methods to change the FC972's IP configuration: 
+ Serial connection: Requires a PC running a terminal program to create a serial connection between the PC and the FC972. 


+ Network connection: Requires a PC running a web browser and a known IP address for the FC972. If the address is not 
known, initialize the module to factory default settings to restore a known default IP Address (see “Front Panel Init Switch 
and Status LED” on page 52). 


To make a serial connection: 


1 Connect the FC972 to a PC's COM port. Use a physical or virtual COM port (using a serial USB adaptor) and connect it with a 
1:1 RS232 cable. 


2 Run a terminal program (115.2-8-N-1, no handshake).

3 Select Change Network Configuration. You must set an IP address and the subnet mask. If you skip the Netmask entry, the IP ad- 
dress will not be changed. 


4 Select Reboot and enter <y> and <ENTER> to start the reboot process. 


To make a network connection: 
1 Connect the FC972 to a PC using either an Ethernet crossover cable or connect both the FC972 and PC to a network switch. 


2 Change the PC's network setting. The PC must be assigned an IP Address/Subnet in the same address range as the FC972. 


For example, if the default IP address of the FC972 is 10.110.134.142 / 255.255.0.0, set the PC to 10.110.134.143 / 255.255.0.0 
or similar. 


If the FC972 IP address is unknown, either use the serial connection described above or restore the module to factory default 
settings (see “Front Panel Init Switch and Status LED” on page 52). 


The factory default IP address is printed on a label inside the controller module (see “FC972 Module diagram” on page 50). The 
factory default subnet mask is 255.255.0.0. 


A Make sure the factory default IP address is legible on the label before restoring the module to factory defaults.

Chapter 7: FC972 Remote 55 





Remote Configuration using a Web Browser 


Modular I/O frames are remote controlled and configured through a network connection between the FC972 and a PC running 
a common web browser. This Ethernet-based external access is maintained by a dedicated 32-bit communication processor in the 
FC972 that runs an HTTP server, a UDP server, and an SNMP agent. 


After launching the browser on the PC and entering the frame’s IP address, all data including GUI is served out from the FC972 
to the browser window. Device-specific configuration software is not required on the PC. 


The FC972 communication processor does not directly control the module parameters. Instead, it transfers commands and data 
between the individual module’s processors which control their parameters and GPIOs. The FC972 communication processor 
and individual module processors both communicate internally over the CAN bus. This two-stage approach insulates external 
communication from audio processing so the Frame Controller’s firmware can be updated without disrupting audio. The func- 
tions available from the GUI interface may vary with different versions of the Frame Controller’s firmware.

Chapter 7: FC972 Remote 57 


e Declare IE (and/or FireFox) as an exception for the Windows Firewall to maintain proper UDP data transfer from and to the 


JAVA applet. 


e Ifyou notice security issues, you may use the UDP PORT RANGE configuration (see “Setting the UDP Port Range” on page 59) 
to limit the UDP port numbers instead of making an exception for all incoming network connections. 

e Disable the browser’s caching features. The FC972’s web pages are designed to operate in LANs. The strategy developed for 
surfing the internet (caching web site elements to save bandwidth download time), may confuse a more technical applica- 
tion like the FC972 because it dynamically generates elements that must be gathered live from the web server.

SNMP Trap Configuration 


62 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


SNMP Operation 


The FC972's SNMP agent polls the system and generates status information. Modules are polled continuously and the status in- 
formation is condensed for the entire frame. An external monitoring tool (SNMP Manager) may poll the SNMP agent based on 
the Modular I/O Audio MIB (Management Information Bases). The MIB and associated document can be received upon request. 


The SNMP manager can also sit and wait to receive Traps from the SNMP agent and poll the frame afterward. The procedure de- 
pends on the implementation of the management tool. For generic monitoring applications, the Modular I/O frame may be 
equipped with GPIO module(s). In this case, the system can fire GPOs (relay closures) based on the settings made in the previous 
section. 


Operational Hints 


Website display relies on data received by the browser from the web server of the communication processor on demand (i.e. it 
polls the web server). The polling process is divided into time slices of different priorities and the browser content is not updated 
automatically for all areas. Therefore, a manual reload is recommended to update the current state of the parameters displayed 
in the GUI. 


If a module dies or is removed from the frame, the module’s graphic turns red (see below). 


FRAME 15 


FRAME NAME 


RACK 07 


FRAME LOCATION 


SNMP Trap Configuration 


The red graphic can only be cleared by inserting a good module. If the module is permanently removed, reset the FC972 Remote 
by briefly pressing the Init button on the front panel, REBOOT from the web interface, or select REBOOT from the serial interface 
menu. Then reload the browser content. 


A The new module must be of the same type and have the same CAN address as the one removed. If a different module type is used 
with the same CAN address, reboot the Frame Controller! 


The browser session with the web server of the FC972 Remote may sometimes expire. In this case, Java Script at the browser site 
may still work but no commands are accepted by the web server. Opening the serial console interface may display a message sim- 
ilar to this: 


Authorization failure for request “GET /...... ” by user ‘anonymous’, required privileges are 'administer', but user's privileges are none. 
Close and restart the browser to open a new session. 


To change some parameter values, the GUI may use a slider. After clicking on an input field, move the slider with the mouse 
pointer, keyboard arrow keys, or by the mouse wheel, which scrolls vertically if active.

Error Monitoring 


When an upstream error condition (i.e., processor module) that results in signal loss at the embedder input is detected, the mod- 
ule switches to an alternative bus for fail-safe operation. The alternative bus can be a similar signal bypassing the processing mod- 
ule (i.e., processor input signal), or an alternate audio signal (i.e., pre-recorded announcement).

Monitoring the Processing Status of a Processing Module 


The most important audio processing module parameter is its momentary gain, which is permanently changed by an adaptive 
dynamic process like LevelMagic™. If this gain persists too long at one end of its working range, the processing parameters should 
be checked. 


The definition of the Level Magic persistent condition is: 


The low-pass weighted average gain of the process is equal to or greater than the Leveler max Gain. 


Processing monitor status may be turned on for each channel by selecting their respective Proc Status Monitor checkboxes. It is im- 
portant to turn off unused processing channels to prevent false alarms if the error condition is monitored by an external entity.

Installation Considerations 


Switch 1 helps configure the MM935's master mode and CAN ID. To set a switch ON, move it to the up position. 
To set the MM935 to clock master mode, set SW1-1 to ON. Otherwise, set it to OFF. 
To initialize all module parameters to factory default values, press the INIT button during power-on. 
A To avoid damaging analog circuits, install a master sync source module in a red reserved slot before applying AC power. 


oO To use the MM935 in master mode in the 1093 or 1094 Frames, insert the MM935 into a red reserved slot and remove all other 
sync modules from the frame. 


SW1-1 SW1-2 

















MM935 installation diagram 


Setting the CAN ID 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972’s IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 


To set the CAN ID in range 0-15: 
1 Set SW1-2 to OFF. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID. 


To set the CAN ID in range 16-31: 
1 Set SW1-2 to ON. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID.

Installation Considerations 


SW1 helps configure the MM936's master mode and CAN ID. To set a switch ON, move it to the up position. 
To set the MM936 to clock master mode, set SW1-1 to ON. Otherwise, set it to OFF. 
To initialize all module parameters to factory default values, press the INIT button during power-on. 


A To avoid damaging analog circuits, install a master sync source module in a red reserved slot before applying AC power. 


xy To use the MM936 in master mode in the 1093 or 1094 Frames, insert the MM936 into a red reserved slot and remove all other 
sync modules from the frame.

INIT BOOT 

















MM936 installation diagram 


Setting the CAN ID 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972's IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 


To set the CAN ID in range 0-15: 
1 Set SW1-2 to OFF. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID. 


To set the CAN ID in range 16-31: 
1 Set SW1-2 to ON. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID. 


78 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Remote Configuration using a Web Browser 


The MM936 is configured using a web browser interface, which requires fitting an FC972 Remote in the frame. 





See “FC972 Remote” on page 35.

Configuration for Console Control 


The AD914 is controlled by System 5 and Max Air consoles by connecting the frame’s FC972 Remote network port to the System 
5/Max Air network switch. Mic settings (gain, +48 V, high-pass filter, etc.) are controlled from the console surface. Settings are 
saved to console Title files and recalled when a Title is loaded. 


For proper console mic control, you must use the correct frame address which is determined by the IP Address of the installed 
FC972 remote. The following table shows addresses used by the system. The FC972 network Gateway setting is 192.168.0.1 in all 
cases (the address of the console’s System Computer). 
































Console Mic Control Port | TCC (ML530) Frame IP Address 

Mic Control Port 1 TCC2 192.168.0.150/255.255.255.0 
Mic Control Port 2 TCC3 192.168.0.151/255.255.255.0 
Mic Control Port 3 TCC4 192.168.0.152/255.255.255.0 
Mic Control Port 4 TCC5 192.168.0.153/255.255.255.0 
Mic Control Port 5 TCC6 192.168.0.154/255.255.255.0 
Mic Control Port 6 TCC7 192.168.0.155/255.255.255.0 
Mic Control Port 7 TCC8 192.168.0.156/255.255.255.0 

















G Console mic control ports may be used by any combination of Modular I/O Mic Pre frames or ML530 Mic-Line Interfaces 
(controlled with a TCC serial control interface). Do not double-assign a mic control port by connecting an ML530 to a TCC 
control line and a Modular Frame addressed to that port's equivalent IP Address. For more information about TCC control, 
see the System 5 or Max Air Guides. 


AD914 CAN IDs 


A Modular I/O frame employs the CAN-bus for internal communication and remote control. For proper operation each module 
in the frame must have a unique CAN ID. Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID in range 0-16. 


AD914 Mic Pres CAN IDs should be set starting from the lowest address and continuing upwards without gaps. The CAN ID of 
the module determines the mic preamp’s position within the Console Control Port: 
































CAN ID Mic #s CAN ID Mic #s 
0 1-4 8 33-36 
1 5-8 9 37-40 
2 9-12 10 41-44 
3 13-16 11 45-48 
4 17-20 12 49-52 
5 21-24 13 53-56 
6 25-28 14 57-60 
7 29-32 15 61-64 




















A Although 64 mic preamps can be controlled in a single frame, be careful not to overload the frame’s PSU capacity. 


Chapter 9: Mic/Line Analog Modules 89 


Cabling 


The console Cabling feature maps a console's mic preamp control port to the MADI input at which the mic's audio appears. This 
means that the audio from a mic patched into an audio channel appears at that channel's input along with relevant preamp con- 
trols on the channel’s strip. 


w For more information on Cabling, see the System 5 or Max Air Guides. 


An ML530 Mic-Line Interface connects to a console mic control port using a TCC serial connection. When the ML530 is cabled 
to the MADI port, MADI sources 1-24 are mapped to the mic control port positions 1-24. 


A Modular I/O frame connects to a console mic control port by addressing the FC972 Remote to the correct IP Address (see “Con- 
figuration for Console Control” on page 89) and connecting it to the console's network switch. 


When a Modular Mic frame is cabled to a MADI port, control mapping is applied to only those sources where an AD914 has been 
detected. Before configuring the Cabling feature, ensure the Frame is online and detected by the system. 


For example, in a Modular I/O frame with three AD914s (CAN IDs 0, 1, 2), only mic control port positions 1-12 are mapped. A 
frame with 12 AD914s (CAN IDs 0-11) maps mic control port positions 1-48. 


90 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Remote Configuration using a Web Browser 


The MM936 is configured using a web browser interface, which requires fitting an FC972 Remote in the frame. 


See “FC972 Remote” on page 35.

GPI Page 
This page sets up frame-wide GPI numbers to trigger dedicated module functions. 


If a GPIO system module detects a GPI input, it puts the associated GPI number on the CAN bus. Each frame module watches for 
these GPI numbers and performs the pre-programmed action if it reads that number on the CAN bus. 


y Do not assign the same GPIO numbers to different functions because this incorrectly triggers multiple functions.

SW1 Functions 


SW1 has four DIP switches that enable/disable BUS-EN, MASTER, and ID+16. SW1-3 is unused. To set a switch ON, move it to the 
up position. 


A To avoid damaging analog circuits, install a master sync source module in a red reserved slot before applying AC power. 


Setting the CAN ID 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972’s IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 


To set the CAN ID in range 0-15: 
1 Set SW1-4 to OFF. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID. 


To set the CAN ID in range 16-31: 
1 Set SW1-4 to ON. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID.

Setting BUS-EN 


The output configuration is taken from the non-volatile memory. 
e SW1-1 ON connects the outputs to the audio busses on power up. 


¢ SW1-1 OFF disconnects the module outputs from the audio busses on power up. 


il 


” To avoid audio bus conflicts when installing or replacing a module and the configuration is unknown, disable the output bus 


drivers by setting BUS-EN = OFF before inserting it. If all settings are done remotely and the unit fits into the frame’s bus 


assignment scheme, remove it and set BUS-EN = ON. 


Setting MASTER 


If this module will be the master sync source in a 1093 or 1094 Frame, it must be placed in a red reserved slot. Select the input 


to use as clock reference using the web browser interface. 
e SW1-2 ON sets this module as clock master for the frame.

Relay Bypass 


The AES I/Os provide a bypass relay for all eight channels, which may be turned off. With Relay Bypass On, the I/Os are in Relay 
Bypass mode. 


Relay Wait Time After Power Up 


The Relay Bypass is active as long as the module has no power. If power is turned on, the module waits this amount of time before 
the relays are engaged to disable Relay Bypass. 


MASTER SELECT 


If the module is set to MASTER mode, select one of the four AES/EBU inputs to use as the clock reference. The module must be in- 
stalled in one of the frame’s red reserved slots.

Enable Bus Driver 


Selecting this option turns on all module bus drivers (from tri-state mode). 


From C8000 Bus Output Mux 


The multiplex mode for incoming audio signals from the audio bus can be set to 2ch or 8ch. 


AES Input Error Detection 


This option can be enabled to monitor the status of the AES/EBU inputs for signal presence and three detailed error types: 














Lock AES receiver lock status 
Validity AES3 validity bit detected 
Parity AES parity (data errors detection) 





Each AES/EBU input can be masked for error detection: 














Grey Error detection disabled 

Green No error detected/PCM audio 

Yellow No error detected/non-audio (Dolby E, D) 
Red Indicates an error condition 














The input status may be presented to external monitoring systems using SNMP. The frame controller summarizes such status in- 
formation and generates SNMP traps for the frame as an entity or may activate GPOs (if GPIO module(s) are installed). The SNMP 
manager may afterwards poll the modules Status (see “SNMP Functions Setup” on page 62). 


Bus Error Detection 


Monitors the serial audio data from the frame bus to properly position an Error-Flag. A bad Error-Flag indicates a disturbance up- 
stream (i.e., input signal, input module, other DSP module). The Error Detection can be turned Off and On for each input from 
the bus. An LED denotes the status of the busses on the left side.

122 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Setting the CAN ID 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 





Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972’s IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 


To set the CAN ID in range 0-15: 
1 Set MODE-4 to OFF. 


2 Use the CAN/BUS switches DO-D4 to set the CAN ID according to the table below. 


To set the CAN ID in range 16-31: 
1 Set MODE-4 to ON.

Installation Considerations 


To initialize module parameters to their factory default values, press INIT during power up. 


A To avoid damaging analog circuits, install a master sync source module in a red reserved slot before applying AC power. 





DE901 installation diagram 


SW1-1 Functions 


SW1-1 has four DIP switches that enable/disable BUS-EN and help set the CAN ID. SW1-1C and SW1-1D are unused. To set a switch 
ON, move it to the right position. 


Setting BUS-EN 


The output configuration is taken from the non-volatile memory. 
e SW1-1 ON connects the outputs to the audio busses on power up. 


e SW1-1 OFF disconnects the module outputs from the audio busses on power up. 


viu 


To avoid audio bus conflicts when installing or replacing a module and the configuration is unknown, disable the output bus 
drivers by setting BUS-EN = OFF before inserting it. If all settings are done remotely and the unit fits into the frame’s bus 
assignment scheme, remove it and set BUS-EN = ON. 


Setting the CAN ID 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


132 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972’s IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 


To set the CAN ID in range 0-15: 
1 Set SW1-B to OFF. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID. 


To set the CAN ID in range 16-31: 
1 Set SW1-B to ON. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID.

Decoder Input 


The decoder input can be set to: 
external Input BNC 


INT From C8000 System Bus. 
Decoder 


This displays the format of the incoming stream: Dolby E, Dolby D, PCM. The SETUP/ROUTING page above shows a Dolby E 
stream containing two programs (5.1 + 2). 


AUX Input 


An AUX input is provided for a PCM signal that may incur Dolby decoding delay. 


Delay 


A delay can be applied to an independent digital audio signal (PCM) to compensate for upstream processing or for decoding delay. 


To C8000 System Bus 


Select this option to assign the outputs of the decoder to the frame’s audio busses (S1-832/0ff). 


Output Mux 


The signals to the audio busses may be multiplexed in 2ch or 8ch mode. In 8ch mode, only one bus selector is available for each 
of the two eight-channel sections. 


136 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Enable Bus Driver 


To disable the output drivers, de-select Enable Bus Driver. 


w The bus selector labels show the signal configuration of the decoder output lines. Downstream equipment must be configured 
"the same way. 


Monitor 


The decoder has a monitor output that depends on the stream being decoded. Select a monitor mode to suit the program. 
5.1-channel signals can have the following modes: Mute, Mono, Lt/Rt, Lo/Ro. 


Error Detection 





The serial audio data from the frame bus can be monitored to properly position an Error-Flag. A bad Error-Flag indicates a distur- 
bance upstream (i.e., input signal, input module, other DSP module). Error Detection is a global selection but the INT and AUX op- 
tions can enable error detection for specific bus inputs. The status of the busses is displayed on LEDS on the left. 























Grey Error detection disabled 
Green No error detected 
Red Error condition 

Bus Status 


The bus status, as well as the external Input (BNC) status, may be presented to external monitoring systems using SNMP. The 
frame controller summarizes such status information and generates SNMP traps for the frame as an entity or may activate GPOs 
(if GPIO module(s) are installed). The SNMP manager may later poll the module’s Status for more detailed status information per 
input. 


See “SNMP Functions Setup” on page 62.

Installation Considerations 


To initialize module parameters to their factory default values, press INIT during power up. 





DE911 installation diagram 


SW1-1 Functions 


SW1-1 has four DIP switches that enable/disable BUS-EN and help set the CAN ID. SW1-1C and SW1-1D are unused. To set a switch 
ON, move it to the right position. 


Setting BUS-EN 


The output configuration is taken from the non-volatile memory. 
e SW1-1 ON connects the outputs to the audio busses on power up. 


e SW1-1 OFF disconnects the module outputs from the audio busses on power up. 


w To avoid audio bus conflicts when installing or replacing a module and the configuration is unknown, disable the output bus 
drivers by setting BUS-EN = OFF before inserting it. If all settings are done remotely and the unit fits into the frame?s bus 
assignment scheme, remove it and set BUS-EN = ON. 


Setting the CAN ID 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 


142 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 


the FC972’s IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 


To set the CAN ID in range 0-15: 
1 Set SW1-B to OFF. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID. 


To set the CAN ID in range 16-31: 
1 Set SW1-B to ON. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID. 


Remote Configuration using a Web Browser 


The DE911 is configured using a web browser interface, which requires fitting an FC972 Remote in the frame. 


See “FC972 Remote” on page 35.

From C8000 System Bus 


This assigns audio busses to the encoder for their respective signals. The labels at the encoder input show which signals the en- 
coder expects due to its configuration determined by PROGRAM CONFIG (see page 138). If the eight input signals are multi- 
plexed in 8ch mode, make sure the source module is also configured to output in 8ch mode. 


Input Mux 


The input signal format can be set to 8ch or 2ch. 


Metadata 


Metadata may be inserted in the USER bits of the PCM signal(s) on the frame’s audio busses. Select the audio bus from which 
metadata should be read. 


PCM 


A delay can be applied to an independent signal selected from the bus (PCM or encoded). 


Delay 


A two-channel delay (up to 4 frames) is provided to compensate for the Dolby E encoding delay. 


To C8000 System Bus 


This assigns the encoder output to the frame’s busses and to the external BNC output. 


146 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Enable Bus Driver 


De-selecting Enable Bus Driver disables the output drivers. 


External Output BNC 


The Dolby E-encoded bit stream is sent out over an unbalanced AES3 output in parallel to the audio bus. 


Metadata Source 
Preset 


The program’s metadata and setup parameters for each encoder are defined manually and can be saved in a Preset. A Preset can 
be loaded, edited and saved. 





Bus 
Metadata for the Dolby E encoder is extracted from the USER bits in Metadata Subset format of one of the incoming PCM signals. 
External (RS485) 


Metadata for the Dolby E encoder is received by the 9-pin D-Sub connector at the front side of the module in Dolby E format. 


Error Detection 


The serial audio data from the frame bus can be monitored to properly position an Error-Flag. A bad Error-Flag indicates a distur- 
bance upstream (i.e., input signal, input module, other DSP module). Error Detection is activated globally but specific bus inputs 
can be enabled for error detection (Ch 1/2, Ch 3/4, Ch 5/6, Ch 7/8, Ch 9/10). The status of the busses is displayed on LEDS on 
the left. 























Grey Error detection disabled 
Green No error detected 
Red Error condition 

Bus Status 


The bus status, as well as the external Input (BNC) status, may be presented to external monitoring systems using SNMP. The 
frame controller summarizes such status information and generates SNMP traps for the frame as an entity or may activate GPOs 
(if GPIO module(s) are installed). The SNMP manager may later poll the module’s Status for more detailed status information per 
input. 


See “SNMP Functions Setup” on page 62. 
Metadata Reversion Mode 
In case a metadata error occurs, select a method to continue reading metadata. 
LAST USED 
Encoding continues with the parameters last used. 
Stop Encoding 


The encoding process stops.

SW1-1 Functions 

SW1-1 has four DIP switches that enable/disable BUS-EN and help set the CAN ID. SW1-1C is unused. To set a switch ON, move it 
to the right position. 

Setting BUS-EN 


The output configuration is taken from the non-volatile memory. 
e SW1-1 ON connects the outputs to the audio busses on power up. 
¢ SW1-1 OFF disconnects the module outputs from the audio busses on power up. 
Xy To avoid audio bus conflicts when installing or replacing a module and the configuration is unknown, disable the output bus 


drivers by setting BUS-EN = OFF before inserting it. If all settings are done remotely and the unit fits into the frame’s bus 
assignment scheme, remove it and set BUS-EN = ON. 


154 Modular I/O Configuration Guide 


Setting the CAN ID 


Each frame must be fitted with an FC972 Remote to externally configure all modules (except analog line in/out and WC984) and 
control mic preamps remotely using a web browser. Install only one FC972 per frame and up to two SY983s (for redundant op- 
eration, differentiated by Master/Slave setting). 


A Module's system ID consists of the Frame ID + module CAN ID. The Frame ID is determined by the FC972's IP Address/Sub- 
net/Host Address. The FC972 must be assigned a unique IP Address based on the frame’s role within the system. A CAN ID must 
be set for each externally controllable module. Most modules have 32 CAN ID settings available but the AD914 Remote Mic Pre- 
amp has 16. 


The FC972 and SY983 have default module CAN IDs that do not interfere with those of other modules. The internal CAN bus 
must be terminated once per frame, either on the FC972 or SY983. 





Using the CAN Address switches on the FC972 or SY983 is an older method of setting the Frame ID. An explicit CAN Address must 
be set only when employing a hardware CAN-BUS remote controller to configure frames. In System 5, the Frame ID is set with 
the FC972’s IP Address for configuration using a web browser interface. 

To set the CAN ID in range 0-15: 

1 Set SW1-B to OFF. 


2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID. 


To set the CAN ID in range 16-31: 
1 Set SW1-B to ON. 
2 Use the CAN Rotary Switch to set the CAN ID.

From C8000 System Bus 


This assigns audio busses to the encoder for their respective signals. The encoder input labels show the configuration of signals 
the encoder expects. For example, if the eight input signals are multiplexed in 8ch mode, make sure the source module is also con- 


figured to output in 8ch mode. 


Metadata 


Metadata may be inserted in the USER bits of the PCM signal(s) on the frame’s audio busses. Select the audio bus from which 


metadata should be read. 


Input Mux 


The input signal format can be set to 8ch or 2ch.

To C8000 System Bus 


This assigns the encoder output to the frame’s busses and to the external BNC output. 


Enable Bus Driver 


De-selecting Enable Bus Driver disables the output drivers. 


Mode 


The Dolby module offers the following operating modes for both encoders: 
e PCM encoding to Dolby D or Dolby D+ 
e Dolby D-to-D+ transcoding. 

Metadata Source 


Preset 


The program’s metadata and setup parameters for each encoder are defined manually and can be saved in a Preset. A Preset can 
be loaded, edited and saved. 


Bus 
Metadata for the encoder is extracted from the USER bits in Metadata Subset format of one of the incoming PCM signals. 
External (RS485) 


Metadata for the encoder is received by the 9-pin D-Sub connector on the front of the module. 


Error Detection 


The serial audio data from the frame bus can be monitored to properly position an Error-Flag. A bad Error-Flag indicates a distur- 
bance upstream (i.e., input signal, input module, other DSP module). Error Detection is activated globally but specific bus inputs 
can be enabled for error detection (Ch 1/2, Ch 3/4, Ch 5/6, Ch 7/8, Ch 9/10). The status of the busses is displayed on LEDS on 
the left. 























Grey Error detection disabled 
Green No error detected 
Red Error condition 

Bus Status 


The bus status, as well as the external Input (BNC) status, may be presented to external monitoring systems using SNMP. The 
frame controller summarizes such status information and generates SNMP traps for the frame as an entity or may activate GPOs 
(if GPIO modules are installed). The SNMP manager may later poll the module’s status for more detailed information per input. 


See “SNMP Functions Setup” on page 62. 


Channel Status Bits 


Select Professional or Consumer status bits for bus outputs OUT1 and OUT2 and the BNC output. 


METADATA ENC 1 Page 


The METADATA ENC 1 Page adjusts metadata parameters if the Metadata Source for the encoder is set to Preset on the 
SETUP/ROUTING Page. In Preset mode, Extended Bitstream Information is enabled. In this case the Nominal Center and Surround 
Mix Level are mapped from the Lo/Ro parameters. 


If the Metadata Source is set to Bus, it is possible to manually overwrite the Data Rate value. 


w A full explanation of the Dolby Metadata system is beyond the scope of this manual. We recommend studying the 
“Dolby Metadata Guide” and other publications available from Dolby (www.dolby.com).
