GENERAL SETTINGS

Audio Configuration 

  • Sample Rate : current sample rate (44100-48000- 88200-96000-176400-192000-352800-384000)
  • Frame size (@1Fs) :current frame size (64 - AES67/48 - 32 -16 - 12 -6).
    Note that available frame size values may differ according to the device and/or firmware.
  • Safety Playout Delay (@1Fs) : additional playout delay.  The value is described at 1Fs (44.1-48 kHz) in samples.
    For example, if the value is 10, the additional playout delay will be 20 at 2Fs (88.2-96 kHz), 40 at 4FS (176.4-192 kHz),...

Device Name

  • This is the unique zeroconf device name.  Other devices see this device name.
    Reboot is not required for the change to apply.  Equivalent to device Setup menu > Network > Device Name (Horus/Hapi)

Network Interface

  • Type : defines the kind of IP V4 address used (Zeroconf - DHCP - Static)
  • Adress - NetMask - Gateway : only available if Type is set to Static.
    Reboot is required for changes to apply.

PTP

Global 

  • PTP Domain : allow to define a specific PTP domain, usually when several PTP masters are required in the same network (default value for Merging devices and programs is 0).

     PTP Domain support is available since the following versions

    MassCore : Pyramix v11.1.5 / Ovation v7.1.5
    Ravenna ASIO : v12.0
    ALSA : v1.0
    CoreAudio / Virtual Audio Device : v2.0.37746
    Horus - Hapi - NADAC : firmware v3.9.2
    Anubis : firmware v1.0

  • DSCP : PTP DSCP (46 : PTP AES67 / 48 : PTP RAVENNA)

Master

To modify the PTP setting, you must first tick the "Manual" checkbox.

  • Priority 1 is the main priority value.
  • Class : Device class.  This value should not be modified.
  • Accuracy : cant be modified.
  • Priority 2 is only used if the other parameters do not allow to elect a PTP master.
  • GMID : Current GrandMasterID (PTP Master)
  • Slave only  : forces the Merging device to always be PTP slave.

  • Delay Mech.:  PTP Profile related - E2E or P2P
  • Announce : PTP Profile related - PTP announcement interval (1 - 2 - 4 - 8 -16 seconds)

  • Sync :  PTP Profile related  (0.0625 - 0.125 - 0.25 - 0.5 seconds)

Status 

  • Lock : shows if the device is locked to PTP (Locked -Locking - Unlocked)
  • Master : true / false for the current device.
  • GMID : Current GrandMasterID (PTP Master)
  • Delta (ns) : delta between the device and the PTP master.
  • Graph (since firmware 3.9.3)
    The graph is only active for slave devices.
    The graph shows the device delta against Master PTP clock.


PTP Priority value :
1 is the highest priority, 255 the lowest one.
Merging devices are by default using Priority 127 when set as PTP Master and 255 when PTP slave

SESSION SOURCES

Configuration

  • Create session button :  create a new session source
  • IO : select the physical input (when applicable)
  • Name : Source name 
  • Advertise : enable source advertising on the network
  • Auto-unicast - retrieve unicast address+port from sink (RTSP) : automatically retrieve the sink (listener) IP address for unicast connection. 
    This feature only applies to Merging Technologies devices.  See this page for further details

     Auto-Unicast support is available since the following versions

    Horus - Hapi : firmware v3.9.2
    Anubis : firmware v1.0
    MassCore : Pyramix v12.0 / Ovation v8.0
    Ravenna ASIO : v12.0
    ALSA : v1.0
    CoreAudio / Virtual Audio Device : v2.0.40016

  • Address : stream multicast address
    Note : user defined checkbox is activated automatically when entering a multicast address manually
  • TTL : Time to Live (also called Hop Limit)  - this value should not be modified
  • Payload type : RTP Payload type - this value should not be modified
  • Codec : L24 - L16 - DSD64 - DSD64_32 - DSD128 - DSD128_32 - DSD256 (bit rate).  Note that those values are sampling rate dependent.
  • Frame size (samples) : frame size of the current source.
  • DSCP : audio DSCP (34: RTP AES67 / 46: RTP Ravenna)
  • RefClk PTP traceable: This feature is useful when you want to connect a stream through Internet (e.g. with two PTP Masters (GPS) at each locations), it allows to make connections with devices locked to different traceable PTP Masters.
    See also Ignore refclk GMID - accept source locked to any PTP master on the Session Sinks page.
  • Channels
    Channel count : number of channels in the stream.  The drop down menu allows to select specific channels if the number of channels is smaller than the selected module channel capability (limitation : channels must be contiguous)
    The URL pf the SDP of this session is :  allows to save the Session Description into a file (useful for specific third party devices if manual SDP has to be provided).


SESSION SINKS

Configuration

  • Create session button :  create a new session sink
  • IO : select the physical output (when applicable)
  • Label : Sink name
  • Source : drop down menu to select a source (both sap and bonjour advertised sources are listed).
    Manual : allow to manually enter a SDP
  • Delay (samples) : playback delay.
    0 is automatic delay (automatic delay only works for Merging Technologies devices)
  • Ignore refclk GMID - accept source locked to any PTP master :  This feature is useful when you want to connect a stream through Internet (e.g. with two PTP Masters (GPS) at each locations), it allows to make connections with devices locked to different traceable PTP Masters.
    See also RefClk PTP traceable on the Session Sources page.
  • Channels Channel count : number of channels in the stream.  The drop down menu allows to select specific channels if the number of channels is smaller than the selected module channel capability (limitation : channels must contiguous)

Session Info

  • RTP Status : connection status
    0x10 receiving RTP packets
    0x01: wrong RTP sequence id
    0x02: wrong RTP SSRC
    0x04: wrong RTP payload type
    0x08: wrong RTP SAC
    0x20 stream has been muted 
    0x40: Horus implementation - an incoming stream is muted
    Important note : this field is incremental, meaning the error numbers will sum.
    E.g. : Stream muted (20) and Wrong payload (4) will be displayed as 0x24.

  • Playout Delay : current playout delay on the selected sink in samples (and ms).

  • RTSP Host : connected source IP
    Session name : defined in SDP (usually the same as the source name)
    Clock domain : PTP clock type and domain
    Payload : Payload / Codec / Sampling Rate / Number of channels
    SDP : display detailed SDP information on the current stream.


INS/OUTS

Allows to change the name of module's specific Inputs and / or Outputs. (when applicable)
Depending of the sampling rate, some modules may not be available.


Note : The module has to bet set to RAVENNA mode (Module page Output Source : Ravenna), otherwise it will not be displayed in that page.
