1. Introduction

Congratulations on your StreamSpot One purchase! By utilizing StreamSpot Sync® automation, the StreamSpot ONE allows broadcasters to focus on their event without worrying about configuring, starting or stopping their broadcasts. Put plainly, it just works... automatically! We hope this user guide will help make setup as quick and painless as possible.

1.1 What's included in the box? 

Each StreamSpot One encoder arrives with the following items:

  • One (1) ethernet cable
  • One (1) RCA to 3.5mm audio cable

2. Encoder Features

Below we break down which ports you’ll be using on your encoder. Note that there may be small differences in placements of these ports compared to your device but the same configuration is used across all our encoders.

2.1. Features- Back side


  • AC Power- This is where you’ll plug your power supply into your encoder
  • Ethernet ports- Connect your encoder to the included router with either of these ethernet ports.

There are several other ports and inputs on the back of the encoder (USB, Serial, DVI, etc) but none of them are needed or used to stream.

2.2 Features- Front Side


  • Line-In audio- This is where you can plug in audio via 3.5 mm jack
  • Power and status lights- Light which indicates whether or not your device is powered on and active.
  • Power Button- Power your device on or off using this button. Simply hold the button down for a few seconds to power the device off.

  4. Connect the AC power of both the encoder and router to a power source.

3.2 Connect your A/V equipment

1. Connect your Axis IP camera to the included router. The camera is powered by a POE injector and must be connected to it, shown below. 


2. Connect your audio source to the 3.5 mm audio jack. If needed, use the RCA to 3.5mm cable included with your encoder.


3.3 Viewing the camera

  1. Open your web browser and log into the webpage (the camera will be in the 100-104 range).
    1. Note: You MUST be on the same subnet and network as the camera to access and control it. You can easily accomplish this by plugging your laptop or other devices into the router StreamSpot provided, or request that Port-Forwarding be enabled on the router StreamSpot provided with your purchase.
  2. Once you’ve found the proper webpage, you will be prompted to log into the camera Axis controls. Use the AXIS Camera Credentials StreamSpot provides you to log in.
