All Encoders and Decoders of the SVSI N1000 MPC (Minimum Proprietary
Compression) Series feature input and output scaling, serial, balanced audio, HDMI
video connection, and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). Some models also offer 1G SFP
support for uncompressed networked AV video and USB control inputs for KVM
keyboard and mouse over IP.
Depending on the model, the P1 port on the rear of the unit is either an SFP (N1133/
N1233) or an RJ45 (N1122/N1222) network connection. FIG. 1 shows the fully-
equipped model, complete with SFP and USB support.

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: If using PoE to power the unit, you should already have a
External power: 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 direct-
attach cable is required for SFP connections).
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.
N1000 MPC Encoders
• For video encoding of a digital source, connect the source to the
Encoder's HDMI IN port using a video cable with an HDMI
connector (or adapter).
• For video encoding of an analog source, connect the source to
the Encoder's VGA IN port using a video cable with a VGA
connector (or component adapter).
N1000 MPC Decoders
• For video decoding, connect a digital display to the Decoder's
HDMI OUT port using a video cable with an HDMI connector (or
N1000 MPC Encoders
• For audio encoding, connect a line level analog audio source to
the Audio input terminal block plug connector, or
• Use the embedded audio from the video source.
N1000 MPC Decoders
• For analog audio decoding, connect a line level analog audio
device to the Audio output terminal block plug connector, or
• Send embedded digital audio (embedded in the HDMI
connection) to a monitor's speakers.

Before using your N1000 MPC 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. N-Series devices are shipped in Auto-IP mode
with a default IP address of 169.254.xxx.xxx. The sample steps below show how the
required changes (to the host computer's IP settings) are made in a Windows
Steps for IP address configuration (for Windows 8):
From the Control Panel > Network and Internet dialog box, select Network and
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
169.254.xxx.xxx IP address with a 255.255.0.0 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 169.254.xxx.xxx address with a subnet of 255.255.0.0.
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 N1000 MPC 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 N1000 MPC units from the following tabs:
Unit Management tab - N1000 Encoder/Decoder is listed in the Type field.
Video Matrix tab - N1000 MPC units are found on the N1000 sub-tab of this
Double-click the unit's name (in one of the lists mentioned above) to view its Settings
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). From this page, you can access any of the main pages of the
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).
