The changed configurations are applied to all of the cameras simultaneously when the check box of the first row which contains titles of each column is clicked. Untouched configuration items are not applied to all of the cameras.

Record Property

  • Resolution

    This item selects a video resolution to use in the recording and streaming.

  • Codec

    This item selects a video codec to use in the recording and the streaming. It is selectable between H.264 and MPEG4 codec. H.264 codec has better quality while H.264 consumes more cpu resources on using the same size of the data.

  • Frame Rate

    This item decides the number of the frames per one second to use. The bigger its value is, the softer motion is. But the quality is getting worse proportionally when higher frame is used in the same bit rate.

  • Quality

    This item selects a predefined bit rate and a key frame interval. 1 is the best quality and the bigger value is, the worse quality is. Even the same level of the quality is selected, the real quality can be different on the type of the IP camera, and selectable ranges of the quality are different.

  • Bitrate

    This item decides the quality of the video to record. The quality is specified by bit rate(bits per second). The higher bit rates are, the bigger needed disk space is. The lower bit rates are, the lower quality of video is. But the quality of the recording will not be much better above certain level.

    Bit rate should be adjusted with considering the installed place or the quality of the connected IP camera. Noisy and dynamic screens need bigger bit rate than other ones to get a similar quality to them at least.

    For reference, the quality of a common video CD is about 1400 Kbps, and the quality of an internet streaming averages 100K ~ 500K.

  • Key Frame Interval

    This item decides the interval of key frames which can be replayed with lossless in recording. Key frame needs ten to hundred times size of other frames. The larger interval of key frame is, the bigger space other frames can use, so the overall quality will be better. Conversely, the smaller interval is, the less space other frames can use, so the overall quality will be worse.

    Bigger interval of key frames makes better quality, but the delay time for seeing the next frame will be longer when the network transmission is delayed or unstable and the program have to wait next frame as some middle frames are lost. Conversely, smaller interval makes worse quality, but the delay time will be reduced.

    Also bigger interval makes the seek time longer because the playable video can be obtained when the decoding from the key frame to the desirous of frame is done on searching and playing random position. Conversely, smaller interval makes the seek time shorter.

    For reference, the key frame is used with the interval of one second for common video, of about five to thirty seconds for the internet streaming.

  • Pre-Event

    This item configures when the recording will be begun before the event in seconds.

    The real start time of the recording can be earlier than the configured one. Because correct MPEG4 video can be obtained when recording is begun from key frame, but the location of key frame may not be matched exactly. In this case, recording will be begun from the previous key frame because more recording is better than less one as the characteristics of the NVR device.

    For reference, the smaller interval of key frames is, the less error occurred.

  • Post-Event

    This item configures when the recording will be finished after the event in seconds.

  • OSD Location

    This item specifies the content and the location of OSD to display. Content can be of one of name or time. Location can be one of Top or Bottom. You can select one of pattern like Bottom [name,time].

  • OSD Date Format

    This item specifies date format of OSD to display. It is consists of combinations with four digit of year (YYYY), each two digit of month (MM) and day (DD), and sperators (-, /).

  • OSD Color

    This item picks a color of OSD to display.

  • Privacy Zone

    Privacy Zone Configuration Screen

    Figure 3.32. Connection List / Filtering Screen


    If you click Ban button on the connection list, the connection is disconnected immediately and IP address is appended to 'Deny' filters automatically.

    Filtering works with two filter lists, 'Allow' and 'Deny'. If 'Allow' is empty. all connection are allowed. If 'Allow' is not empty, however, only matched connections are allowed. If a connection is matched to 'Deny' filter list, it is denied always.

    A filter is composed of 'user', 'address' and 'mask' in the form of 'user@address/mask'. the 'user' stands for NVR user name, and you can specify multiple users at once using '*' characters, for example, 'guest*@' specifies all accounts whose name starts with 'guest'. If 'user@' part is missing, it is set to '*@', all users, automatically. the 'mask' acts as bit-wise AND operator to IP address, for example, subnet '192.168.10.' is specified by filter '192.168.10.0/255.255.255.0' form. If the filter has only address part, the mask is set to '255.255.255.255' automatically.

The changed configurations are applied to all of the cameras simultaneously when the check box of the first row which contains titles of each column is clicked. Untouched configuration items are not applied to all of the cameras.

Motion Detection Property

  • Name

    This item indicates the camera name which is configured from Camera Configuration. It is not editable on this section.

  • Enabled

    This item decides whether the monitor motion from the all area or the selected area or not. It can be used with recording, digital output signal, warning message together.

  • Sensitivity

    This decides how much difference is occurred to judge the motion detection. For example, if size of width x height of the camera video is 10 x 10, total number of the points is 100. If the sensitivity is set by 100%, the system judges that camera has not a motion when any point is not detected. If the sensitivity is set by 90%, the system judges that the camera has not a motion when less than ten points is detected.

    [Note] Note

    The higher sensitivity is, the smaller motion system detects on.

  • Noise

    This item decides the level of the ignoring noise from the camera. Much noise can be occurred depending on the status of the cable connection, then the camera can judge that the motion is detected even camera video is not changed. For example, if the noise value is 10%, system judges motion detection when the difference between the previous video and the current video pixel is 10% and more, and the system does not judge motion detection and ignores the difference when the difference is less than 10%.

    If the color of each coordinate in the current video is Y2 and one of the previous video is Y1, system judges motion detection when Y2 - Y1 or Y1 - Y2 is bigger than value of noise. In other words, the noise value is a value to ignore to distinguish normal motion detection and noise. Noise value will be adjusted by the expression of Y2 - Y1 > noise value.

    [Note] Note

    The smaller value of the noise configuration is, the more sensitive detecting the motion will be worked. But the value should be big when the camera signal is not good.

  • Area

    The system can only monitor the motion in the specified partial area when Area button is clicked.

    • Save Status of Removable Disk

      Devices like USB which are easy to remove are not connected to the system by default when the system restarts. But the devices like large RAID disk which are seldom removed uses the connection configuration with a common disk to keep the connection immediately on system restarting.

  • Disk is Broken Physically

    The system blocks a disk saving when the disk is broken physically and shows the damage of the disk by picture. This status is only shown on the system starting. And any tasks for the disk cannot be done. The disk with this status should be changed.

Network Interface

The system can be monitored remotely by configuring the interface when the system is connected to the network.

Network Interface Configuration Screen

Figure 5.10. Network Interface Configuration Screen


Name

This item is a network interface of the system and displayed in the list depending on the number of the network interface card. Three interfaces from one to three will be displayed when there's three network interface card.

Address & DNS

Connection method and address are configured.

  • Connection Method

    Each interface has two connection types as follows.

    • Automatic (DHCP)

      Network interface configures the system address automatically from the DHCP(Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server connected with NVR via the network.

    • Manual (Static)

      The devices on the network are assigned with a static address usually.

      The Static address has a advantage to the service while address in the connections of DHCP can be changed. The static address can be offered from the network administrator to use it. The offered address can be written to Address section.

    The address can be changed by the request from the server, state of line, time, rebooting for it is assigned from upper server. So, the address in DHCP is not able to modify.

  • Address

    The information of this section can only be entered in the static address, the assigned address will be appeared here in other address mode. IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway are mandatory in the static address.

    Static Address Configuration Screen

Time & Date

This configuration adjusts time and date.

Time & Date Configuration Screen

Figure 5.13. Time & Date Configuration Screen


Time & Date

This item displays the date of the current system by format of 24 hours and calendar.

Time Zone indicates the timezone where the current system is located in, it effects to the daylight saving time and the time synchronization. You need to select area to change timezone.

Time Zone Area Selection Screen

The first city is selected in an alphabet order when the area is selected above timezone area. This city can be changed into the preferable city by clicking the city. The window will be disappeared and the time and date information will be applied by clicking Ok button.

Time Zone City Selection Screen

Figure 5.15. Time Zone City Selection Screen


Time Server

Time is important in the security device. It is configured with the network time server to get an accurate time. Local time is tend to slow slightly so the time server is preferred.

Supported time synchronization Protocols are NTP, Unix/Linux, Windows, Custom. NTP method uses network time protocol(ntpdate, 123 port), Unix/Linux method uses the time synchronization program(rdate, 37 port), Windows method uses the time synchronization from the windows server(net time, 139/445 port).

Time will be configured with specified server on Server a day by selecting Synchronize clock with internet server. This process is executed automatically and can be executed instantly by clicking Update now button from the time server.

System policy when time changes

The system will be restarted when time goes backward from the current system's one. The system will not be restarted when time goes forward, but the network connection and the recording will be stopped before the change of time and will be restarted after the change of time.

[Note] Note

Advancing time occurs few problem to system, turning back time can occur system malfunction. So, program will be restarted when time is turning back. System will be restarted when Update now button is clicked with same reason.

[Note] Note

Overlap of recorded data will be removed when time is turned back to avoid conflicting.

Auto Reboot

Unexpected system stop makes a blank to the system operation when the system is not recovered to normal. This situation is not allowed to the security device. So the system needs to check itself and to get itself back to the operable state when a problem occurred.

Auto reboot are functions for the system reliability.

Auto Reboot Configuration Screen

Auto Reboot

The configuration of the auto reboot is as follows.

Enable Auto Reboot Screen

Figure 5.17. Enable Auto Reboot Screen


  • Reboot Interval

    The next reboot date is decided by add the current date to the reboot interval(days), and the next reboot time is Reboot Time. The system will be rebooted in the next period when the time is over by disabling Auto Reboot or canceling it.

    The system indicates not the hardware, but the NVR software.

Performance of the system will be deteriorated or the system will not be worked in case the system becomes unstable by the operating system or the software problem. Increasing these unstableness can raise a critical problem in the security system. Auto Reboot makes the system reboot after certain amount of time is passed to make up this problem.

[Note] Note
The time when the administrator exists or the fluctuation of monitoring target is few is suitable to the auto reboot time.

The process of the auto reboot is as follows.

  1. The start time of the system will be obtained when the system starts.

  2. The auto reboot time is decided by the user configuration. The default value is 7 days.

  3. A window inquiring user to reboot will be appeared at the auto reboot time. The window will restart automatically the system when the reply is not selected within 30 seconds.

    • Start time : 2002.4.13 13:03:14

    • User reboot interval : 7 days

    • Current time : 2002.4.21 16:01:32

    • User reboot time : 03:30

    • Next reboot time : 4.27(13+14(7*2days) 03:30(user reboot time)

    Example 5.1. Time Configuration Example 1


    • Start time : 2002.4.13 13:03:14

    • User reboot interval : 0 days

    • Current time : 2002.4.21 16:01:32

    • System will reboot at 13:00 of the next day (4/22 in example) when the time is entered before than the current time, and will reboot at 18:00 today when the time is entered to 18:00.

    Example 5.2. Time Configuration Example 2 : in case interval is zero
