Set-top box interconnect

If you are using a set-top box (STB) as an input source, assign one STB per encoder input and connect the output of each STB to the associated capture card input connector. Composite, component and HDMI interfaces are currently supported, depending on the specific capture card.

Normally a STB is statically set to a particular channel for 24 x 7 ingest of that channel. Optionally, the encoder may be configured as virtual STB remote control, allowing Volicon Media Intelligence service to select channels either automatically via a schedule or manually by individual users.

Tech tip

Volicon Media Intelligence service is recording and logging content; as such, it is only able to support HDMI without HDCP.
