Select the Engines menu on the right and click Launch new Engine under the Sputnik Engine sub menu.
Once your Sputnik Engine has launched, navigate to your Teradek encoder's web interface by typing in its IP address into your browser. To find your device's IP using the OLED screen, press the black joystick downward one time. Alternatively, you can find the IP Address under the Network Setup menu. Select the Cloud Services tab on the left of the page.
Make sure you are logged into your Core account. Select the Connection option to bring up a menu of available Sputnik Engines on your Core account. Select the Sputnik Engine you would like to associate your encoder with.
The listed On-Demand Sputnik Engine is offered for free when an encoder connects to Core. On-Demand Sputniks do not provide the features listed at the beginning of this tutorial.
To verify your encoder is associated with the correct Sputnik Engine, navigate back to the Core interface and select your source from the Dashboard or Sources menus. Under the Info tab, you will see the Engine your encoder is associated with.
