OAT100R Rack Installation

 

(also see pages 11 and 12)
To install the OAT100R in a rack:

• 

Carefully slide the OAT100R into a standard 
19-inch equipment rack.

• 

When mounting in the rack, make sure to use 
the appropriate hardware. ALL FOUR MOUNT-
ING SCREWS MUST BE USED.

• 

This equipment is not designed to support 
other devices. Do NOT stack other equipment 
on the top of the OAT100R. 

• 

Rear cabling must be dressed and supported 
so that the weight of the cabling is not a strain 
on the OAT100R connectors.

• 

MOUNTING OF THE EQUIPMENT IN THE 
RACK SHOULD BE SUCH THAT A HAZARD-
OUS CONDITION IS NOT ACHIEVED DUE 
TO UNEVEN MECHANICAL LOADING.

Rack-mount Considerations

A. Elevated Operating Ambient

 

If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack 
assembly, the operating ambient temperature 
of the rack environment may be greater than 
room ambient. Therefore, consideration should 
be given to installing the equipment in an 
environment compatible with the maximum 
ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the 
manufacturer (see Specifications information 
in this document).

This section provides introductory OAT100R installation and setup troubleshooting 
information. Refer to the extended Installation & Setup Guide for additional trouble-
shooting information.

Equipment Setup Review

• 

Make sure all connectors and connections are tight and secure on all entertainment 
system components.

• 

Check the OAT100R LEDs:

 

Under standard operating conditions the PWR (Power) LED on the OAT100R front 
panel is continuously lit green. If there is a hardware fault, the PWR LED will turn 
and stay red. (When power is 

fi

 rst applied to the OAT100R, the PWR LED initially 

flashes red and then turns green.)

 

When the OAT100R is booted and operating normally, the STATUS LED is 
continuously lit green.

Network Setup 

If the network is configured for DHCP but the OAT100R has not been assigned an IP 
address, i.e., the Ctrl IP field in the OAT100R System Information display is blank: 

1.  Check the Control Port connector on the rear panel of the OAT100R. Make sure the 

cable connection is tight and secure.

2.  Observe the green LED on the Control Port. Once the OAT100R is connected to 

the network, the LED will be lit continuously.

3.  Contact the network administrator to verify the network status and check that the 

DHCP server is working properly.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

(Continued from previous page)

B. Reduced Air Flow

 

Installation of the equipment in a rack should 
be such that the amount of air flow required 
for safe operation of the equipment is not 
compromised. To ventilate the system nor-
mally and avoid overheating, leave at least 
1 inch (2.5 cm) on each side (including top 
and bottom) of the OAT100R. Do NOT stack 
other equipment on the top of the OAT100R.

C. Circuit Overloading

 

Consideration should be given to the 
connection of the equipment to the supply 
circuit and the effect that overloading of the 
circuits might have on overcurrent protection 
and supply wiring.

D. Reliable Earthing

 

Maintain reliable earthing of rack-mounted 
equipment. Particular attention should be 
given to supply connections other than direct 
connections to the branch circuit (e.g. use of 
power strips). 

E. Mains Outlet Earthing

 

The apparatus with Class I construction must 
be connected to a mains socket outlet with a 
protective earthing connection.

OAT100R Installation on a Flat Surface

To install the OAT100R on a level surface (table 
top, shelf, etc.):

• 

Install the equipment in an environment 
compatible with the maximum operating 
ambient temperature (Tma) speci

fi

 ed by the 

manufacturer (see Speci

fi

 cations information 

in this document).

• 

Place spacers or rubber feet (not provided) on 
the bottom of the OAT100R.

• 

Carefully place the OAT100R on the level 
surface.

• 

To ventilate the system normally and avoid 
overheating, leave at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) on 
each side (including top and bottom) of the 
OAT100R. Do NOT stack other equipment on 
the top of the OAT100R.

Setup Information

This document provides installation and setup support only for the OAT100R. One or 
more VHF and/or UHF antennas must be installed before you proceed to set up the 
OAT100R. LG recommends that the system be professionally installed.

Check the following items before you begin OAT100R installation and setup procedures.

VHF and/or UHF Antennas

__  Create a station plan for the OAT100R terrestrial input(s).
__  Install the appropriate antenna(s) in accordance with the desired channels. The 

VHF and/or UHF antenna(s) must be located where it/they will have unobstructed 
access to the terrestrial signals. Amplify the antenna distribution as necessary. 

__  Point the antenna(s) so as to achieve the best signal quality (use appropriate 

equipment for measurement purposes). 

__  Up to eight 75 ohm RG-6 or larger coaxial cables from the terrestrial antenna 

distribution system should be available for connection to the OAT100R.

__  Measure the signal level at each of the OAT100R RF inputs. For proper system 

performance, the signal level at each RF input must be between +3 dBm (+52 dBmV) 
and -83 dBm (-34 dBmV). A nominal value of -53 dBm (-4 dBmV) is recommended. 
Note that additional equipment (i.e., attenuators) may be required to adjust the signal 
level. 

OAT100R

__  Unpack the OAT100R unit and all accessories. 

OAT100R Accessories:

• 

AC Power Cord and Adapter

__  Select the location for mounting the OAT100R. Ensure that adequate ventilation is 

available.

__  Obtain the necessary attachment hardware to mount the OAT100R chassis in its 

targeted location.

__  Plan and install the necessary cabling and network (Ethernet) and AC power access 

for the OAT100R. You will also need the following to connect a PC directly to the 
OAT100R for system setup purposes: FTDI TTL-USB cable (P/N TTL-232R-5V-AJ).

Setup Information (Cont.)

Channel Assignments for RF Output

__  Create a channel assignment plan for the installation site, or modify an existing plan 

to incorporate the RF output of the OAT100R. Ensure that up to four contiguous 
CATV channels are allocated for the RF output. The OAT100R uses either a 256-QAM 
or 64-QAM modulation format, thereby occupying approximately 24 MHz of frequency 
spectrum.
The RF start channel is user-assigned during system setup, and the remaining 
channels are then automatically assigned per EIA-542 STD CATV frequency allocation 
standards. For example, if the RF start channel assignment is channel 2, the three 
remaining channels will be 3, 4, and 5. However, if the RF start channel assignment is 
6, the three remaining channels will be 95, 96, and 97. Refer to EIA-542 STD CATV 
frequency allocation tables for further information as required.
The highest available RF channel number for the OAT100R is 135. Thus, to 
allocate all four channels available for OAT100R RF output, the RF start channel 
must be set no higher than 132.

__  Find a location on the frequency spectrum that is free of existing noise.

Channel Assignments for IP Output

__  The OAT100R outputs IPv4 multicast streams. Ensure the institution’s IP network 

and room receivers support IPv4 multicast and that the network is capable of 
selectively routing multicast traffic. Refer to vendor equipment documentation for 
further information.

__  Create a channel assignment plan for the installation site, or modify an existing 

plan to incorporate the IP output of the OAT100R. Ensure that up to eight unused 
and unreserved IPv4 multicast addresses, within the designated range 224.0.0.0 to 
239.255.255.255, are allocated for the OAT100R IP output. 
IP channels are user-assigned during system setup. You may opt to specify an IP 
start channel and enable the system to auto-increment the remaining channel 
assignments. For example, if the IP start channel assignment is 227.0.0.40, the 
remaining channels will be 227.0.0.41, 227.0.0.42, etc. Or, you may opt to 
manually specify the IP details for each IP channel.

__  Reserve at least one User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port for the multicast data 

streams. You can use the system default (1234) or another unassigned port number 
for each data stream, as required, for example, 50000, 50001, etc. The port(s) must 
avoid con

fl

 ict with other protocols in use.

Note:

 Refer to the IANA IPv4 Multicast Address Space Registry and/or the IANA Service 

Name and Transport Protocol Port Number Registry for further IP address/port information 
as required.

current tuner and then display a tuner command prompt.

f)

When you are finished mapping the last tuner stream, at the

 Tuner Command > 

prompt, type 

exit

 and press 

Enter

 to return to the Main Menu

 Command > 

prompt.

19.  (Optional) As part of the system setup, you will need to set tuner channel and 

program numbers. If you are not sure which RF channels and programs are available 
on each of the tuners, you may wish to run one or more RF scans before you set the 
channel and program numbers as described later in this procedure. 
a) If the

 Command >

Enter

.

    Note that an RF scan takes several minutes. When a scan is complete, the system 

will provide a listing of the available channels on the selected tuner(s) as well as the 
program(s) available for each of those channels. 
Repeat this step for additional tuners as necessary; if multiple tuners are connected 
to one antenna, you do not need to run separate RF scans on each. Make note of the 
results, and then continue with step 20.

20. If the

 Setup Command >

Packet Identifiers (PIDs)

Note:

 If Pro:Idiom channels are NOT present in the site’s entertainment system, PIDs do 

not need to be set in the OAT100R, and therefore, you will not need to design a PID map 
for the OAT100R output.

Note:

 See “Packet Identi

fi

 ers (PIDs) Overview” in the extended Installation & Setup 

Guide for further information on PIDs.
__  Survey the PIDs currently used in the system, and design a PID map for the 

OAT100R output (ensure that up to 64 PIDs are allocated). Ensure that Pro:Idiom 
message PIDs are never used by the video/audio PIDs for the OAT100R channels 
(or any other system elements).

 

The program start PID is user-assigned during system setup, and the 63 remaining 
PIDs are then automatically assigned within the 64-PID contiguous block. 

__  PIDs must be specified in the OAT100R system as hexadecimal numbers.

Rack Installation

Typical Rack Installation

1.  (Optional) As shipped, the OAT100R mounting brackets are attached 

fl

 ush with the 

front of the unit (see diagram a). If desired, the mounting brackets may be detached 
from the unit and reattached, for example, so that they are 

fl

 ush with the rear of the unit 

(see diagram b). If you wish to change the location/orientation of the mounting brackets, 
carefully remove each of the four (M4 x 10 mm) screws and attendant washers (one 

fl

 at and one lock washer per screw) holding each bracket in place. Then, use the same 

screws and washers to reattach the mounting brackets in the desired location.

2.  Carefully slide the chassis into a standard 19-inch equipment rack.

3.  Use all four mounting screws to secure the chassis to the rack.

Rack Installation (Cont.)

Rack-mount Considerations

A. Elevated Operating Ambient

 

If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature 
of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consid-
eration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible 
with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer (see 
Specifications information in this document).

B. Reduced Air Flow

 

Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow 
required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised. To ventilate the 
system normally and avoid overheating, leave at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) on each side 
(including top and bottom) of the OAT100R. Do NOT stack other equipment on the 
top of the OAT100R.

C. Circuit Overloading

 

Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply 
circuit and the effect that overloading of the circuits might have on overcurrent 
protection and supply wiring.

D. Reliable Earthing

 

Maintain reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment. Particular attention should be 
given to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g. 
use of power strips). 

E.  Mains Outlet Earthing

 

The apparatus with Class I construction must be connected to a mains socket outlet 
with a protective earthing connection.

Typical System Installation 

(see also Typical Setup Flow Charts on the previous pages) 

1.  If not already done (see setup information on page 7), measure the signal level at each 

of the OAT100R RF inputs. For proper system performance, the signal level at each 
input must be between +3 dBm (+52 dBmV) and -83 dBm (-34 dBmV). A nominal value 
of -53 dBm (-4 dBmV) is recommended. 

2.  Connect a 75 ohm RG-6 or larger coaxial cable from the terrestrial antenna distribution 

system to each RF IN port to be used on the OAT100R rear panel. Up to eight 
OAT100R RF tuners may be connected for RF 256-QAM output or IP output; up to 
four OAT100R RF tuners may be connected for RF 64-QAM output.

3.  To enable remote management, connect one end of a CAT5 RJ-45 Ethernet cable to 

the Control Port on the OAT100R rear panel, and connect the other end of the cable 
to the institution’s network. 

Caution: The subnet 192.168.0.x is reserved for internal communication 
and cannot be used for the Control Port network subnet. This is the only 
restriction; for example, you can use 192.168.1.x, 10.x.x.x, etc. Contact 
your service representative for further information.

4.  Connect the OAT100R power supply to the POWER connector on the OAT100R rear 

panel. Then, plug the AC power cord into a powered AC line receptacle. When power 
is applied, the PWR (Power) LED on the OAT100R front panel will initially flash red and 
then turn green.
The boot-up process for the OAT100R may take up to two minutes. When boot-up is 
complete, the STATUS LED on the OAT100R front panel will light continuously green.

5.  Once the STATUS LED is lit continuously (no longer blinking), use the FTDI TTL-

232R-5V-AJ cable to connect a PC to the Service Port on the OAT100R front panel. 

6.  Using HyperTerminal or an equivalent terminal emulation program on the PC, con

fi

 gure 

the serial port as follows: Bits per second/baud = 115200; Data bits = 8; Parity = None; 
Stop bits = 1; Flow Control = None

    Once the connection is established, you should see a login prompt. (If the login prompt 

is not automatically displayed, press 

Enter

 to refresh the screen.)

7. At the

 login as: 

prompt, type 

admin

 and press 

Enter

. Then, type the admin user 

password (provided by LG) at the

 password: 

prompt.

8. At the

 Command > 

prompt, type 

info

 and press 

Enter

. (Note that you can press 

Enter

 at any OAT100R command prompt to view current menu.)
