Interleave 2SI Inputs

AWS Elemental Live supports Interleave 2SI inputs. This feature requires a specific model of appliance set up with an 8-port SDI card. To support 4Kp50/60 encoding workflow, the appliance that will ingest the Interleave 2SI input must be a L68x series or L700 series. To support a workflow to encode 4Kp50/60 input to SD or HD output, the appliance that will ingest the Interleave 2SI must be any of the following: the L28x, L300 series, L48x, and L500 series.

To use this feature, do the following:

  • Make sure that the 8-port SDI card or cards are installed in the appliance.

To configure an event for this input, set the Select Type field to Interleave 4K (HD-2SI). Make sure you do not set the field to Interleave 4K when the input is Quadrant 4K, or vice versa. The appliance will detect the input but this mismatched configuration will result in readily observable video issues.

The Interleave 4K (HD-2SI) setting is applied to ports 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, or 13-16.

Media Info will report the input as either 2SI or SDI.
