Techex ARQStream encoder - SDI without embedded audio
Posted by on 04 September 2012 07:34 PM

The Techex ARQStream encoder/decoder appliance is configured to, by default, expect an SDI (or HD-SDI/3G-SDI) input with embedded audio, as most sources used for encoding will output an SDI bit stream with audio, even when no audio is present. This provides the optimum defaults for the majority of users.

If your SDI source contains no embedded audio, you should change your encoder profile from 'audio & video' to 'video only'.

When using a profile configured for 'audio & video' with an SDI source that does not contain audio, your stream may not output correctly, and you may see an error in the encoder log 'Input discontinued'. To resolve this, change the profile setting as described above.
