Compliance Electromagnetic Compatibility FCC Part 15 Subpart B: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
IPTV, broadband TV, Web streaming, government, education or enterprise video. Cisco Media Processor is a highly reliable, robust family of encoding solutions that optimizes bandwidth and delivers unique capabilities to transform an IP network into a true broadcast experience. It produces output in multiple resolutions for delivery to both TV and PC-based devices through IPTV set top boxes and Internet gateways, providing a broad reach of digital media to new subscribers.
Push / Pull IP Multicast In addition to encoding video and up to three stereo audio streams, Cisco Media Processor can optionally process Line 21 Captioning information and convert this to both CEA-608 and up-converted CEA-708 captioned data. For VC-1 Advanced Profile, this captioning data is contained within the video bitstream.

Pb/Y Pr/C Cisco Media Processor utilizes locking BNC connectors for S-Video. If your source S- Video is not BNC based, you will need to use a BNC S-Video adapter such as an S- Video Male to Dual BNC Female Adapter 75 Ohm Coaxial.
See the chart on page 4 to determine which connectors to use for analog sources. Ethernet Ports Connect the cable for the network that will be used to manage your Cisco Media Processor to one of the available Ethernet ports. Use a Cat. 5 (or better) Ethernet cable.
Connect the properly grounded power cable to the AC power connector. Powering Up Except for the Cisco S3200 Series media Processor unit, place the On/Off switch on the back of your Media Processor in the On position. Next, press and release the Power switch on the front of the Media Processor.

Note that if an odd number of lines are cropped from the top, the sense of which field is first (top or bottom) will change and you will need to set the Field Order option accordingly.
C I SCO SYSTEM S, IN C. Mode Choose CBR (Constant Bit Rate) or VBR (Variable Bit Rate) encoding. If the mode is VBR, a parameter to specify Maximum Bit Rate in kb/sec will appear and the Buffer Size parameter will be grayed. Bit Rate This setting indicates bits/sec in units of kb/sec.

Miscellaneous Filters Cisco Media Processor provides for various noise reducing filters. The normal filter provides for moderate noise reduction. The smooth filter provides for large noise reduction at the expense of softer images. For the dynamic filter, feedback from the encoder during encoding will cause the active filter to change from none to normal to smooth.
