- The Cube, Slice, and Bond 600 series support two-way IFB using UDP or TCP MPEG-TS Audio in combination with another Decoder in the same series on firmware 8.2 or higher.
- IFB Signals can be point to point or proxied through Core.
Here's physical information on what's needed for IFB:
The IFB input (on the Cube Decoder side with the headset icon) uses Apple-compatible headsets such as the Apple EarPods (from the tip: Left / Right / Ground / Mic, respectively, for the four different conductors on the connection).
The input is mono, unbalanced, mic level.
Note that the same connector carries both output (for headphones) and input (for mic).
We'd suggest first testing it on a local network (Cube Encoder to Cube Decoder) so you can see the workflow and not worry about firewalls getting in the way. Then, you can move on to testing with Sputnik/Core.
Point to Point IFB
- To test: Plug in headphones with microphones on each side.
- Open up both the encoder and decoder interfaces.
- On the decoder interface, navigate to the IFB tab and enter in the encoder IP and encoder port for the destination. Under receiving port, enter the port in which to receive the signal from the encoder (NOTE: This port needs to be different from the streaming protocol port)
- On the encoder interface, navigate to the IFB tab and enter in the decoder IP and decoder port for the destination (NOTE: This port needs to be different from the streaming protocol port). Under receiving port, enter the port in which to receive the signal from the decoder.
Press apply and then reload the page. If configured right, you should begin to hear audio come through. You may have to restart both the encoder and decoder for changes to take effect.
