MULTIWAY DuoVu 

DS2 has traditionally provided playback in full screen, picture in 
picture and quad display modes. Now you can choose to playback 
in any multiway display mode, right up to 16-way. For ultimate 
flexibility you can now have any combination of live and recorded 
segments on the multiway view, allowing you to review recorded 
material, while keeping an eye to ongoing surveillance. 


VIDEO MOTION SEARCH FACILITY 

Allows the user to search through hard-disk recordings for 
movement in a particular area of the image, set up on a 16x16 
(PAL) cell grid (16x14 NTSC). The unit is then able to search back 
through the hard drive and create a list of activities for the user to 
view and archive as required. Searching can also be filtered to limit 
the search to user-defined times and dates. 


Multi/Viode recorpine 

MultiMode recording gives you the ability to set different record 
rates, resolutions and compression algorithms across scheduled, 
normal and alarm modes. Up to 24 MultiMode Recording profiles 
can be set per unit, giving you the flexibility to adjust resolution 
(QCIF to 4CIF), record rates and compression settings (MPEG-4/JPEG) 
dynamically on individual cameras and across the whole unit. 


RECORDING 

Playback and record to hard disk simultaneously. 

The unit provides the option to continuously archive video and 
audio data to a FTP server 

A choice of hard disk options are available. Please contact customer 
services in your region or check the website at 
www.dedicatedmicros.com for further information. 

Please note drive sizes may vary from time to time which may result 
in a larger drive capacity than stated being supplied with the unit. 
Protected images: 

The system can be configured to protect images from being 
overwritten permanently or for a fixed period of time, when an 
alarm is activated. The end user can also manually configure 
sections of recorded images to be protected from overwrite, and 
remove protection. 


RECORD RATE 
The standard Digital Sprite 2 can record real time on 4 cameras at 
100PPS(PAL), 120PPS (NTSC). 


EXTERNAL RAID DEVICES 

We recommend that only DM approved external RAID devices 
should be used with the DS2 range. 

Please contact Technical Support in your region for further 
information on recommended devices or visit the web site at 
www.dedicatedmicros.com/support 


FLASH DISK OPERATION 

To ensure that surveillance and alarm reporting functions are 
unaffected in the unlikely event of HDD failure, the DS2 has a built- 
in Flash Disk containing all the essential program and configuration 
data. 


SCHEDULING 

Choice of day, night or weekend scheduling offers the ability 
to automatically: 

e Select the cameras to be recorded 

e Switch alarms and activity on/off 

e Alter the record rate for standard, alarm and activity recording 
Activation is via timer or alarm panel link to Alarm input 


TIMED EXPIRY 

e Timed expiry option allows images to be held for a selected 
number of days 

e Images on the disk which are older than the number of days 
selected are not accessible 


EVENT COPYING 

Individual images, event sequences, audio and user defined recorded 
sequences can be saved to the internal DVD-R drive of DS2. 

The DVD or CD images are digitally signed for authentication 
purposes. Playback of images from the DVD or CD is via a standard 
DVD-ROM drive (CD-ROM for CD-R media). The DVD/CD playback 
software will auto-run and does not require the installation of 
software on the users PC. 


DIGITAL AUTHENTICATION 

The use of a digital authentication process allows the user to detect 
whether the image or series of images has been tampered with 
since it was written to the storage media. 


` ALARMS 


17 normally open/closed alarm inputs available via on board 25 way 
D-type connection (expandable via up to 16 optional remote alarm 
modules CIO1). 

Up to a total of 8 contacts may be assigned to each camera input. 
Multiple alarms can trigger one camera and/or 1 alarm can trigger 
multiple cameras 

Options: 

e Up to 15 minutes of protected pre and post alarm recording per 
event 

Protect Alarm images from overwrite for a configurable period of 
time 

e Main monitor display of last alarm camera or all alarmed cameras 
in sequence or multiscreen 

Trigger telemetry preset on alarm 

Capture additional still image at moment of alarm 

Buzzer activated on alarm 

Light duty relay output triggered via alarm zone 

Instant messaging to remote network client on alarm

VIDEO MOTION DETECTION 

Programmable 16x16 (PAL) grid (16x14 NTSC) with 5 levels of 
sensitivity for each camera view. 

16 advanced VMD trigger zones with individual sensitivity on a 
88x64 (PAL) grid (88x60 NTSC) for each camera. 

This is based on standard resolution settings of 720x256 (PAL) and 
720x240 (NTSC). 

Options: 

e Up to 15 minutes of protected pre and post activity recording per 
event 

Protect VMD images from overwrite for configurable period of 
time 

e Main monitor display of last VMD camera, or all VMD cameras in 
sequence or multiscreen 

Buzzer activated on VMD 

Light duty relay output triggered on VMD activity 

Instant messaging to remote network client on VMD 

Automatic archive of VMD to FTP server or DVD-R/CD-R 








PRE-ALARM 

Each camera input can continuously capture a configurable number 
of images at a user defined pre-alarm capture rate. When an event 
occurs, the images captured before the alarm event are recorded to 
disk, allowing the viewer to see enhanced evidence leading up to 
the event. 


FALSE ALARM SUPRESSION 

Advanced alarm zones added to DS2 allow you to combine multiple 
detection sources to minimise false triggers. E.g. you can set an 
alarm to be triggered by a combination of a PIR and Camera VMD 
to remove miss-triggers from either source. Added to this, each 
alarm input can be temporarily disabled by a remote administrator 
to ensure that faulty detectors do not mask real alarm incidents. 


TEXT SUPPORT 

Through the inclusion of Text Support, the DS2 can search captured 
transaction data for specific goods purchased, transaction numbers, 
credit card references, keywords etc. and jump straight to the 
associated video sequence. Additional functionality allows alarms 
to be raised on the use of keywords from POS and other devices. 
Search and playback is also supported through NetVu ObserVer. 


INSTANT ALARM REPORTING 

The system can dial-out on alarm to a remote site to provide instant 
alarm notification. 

e Instant alarm reporting 

e Dial-out on alarm 

e Alternative signalling path 


E-MAIL & SMS NOTIFICATION 

Emails can be sent on alarm or other critical events.

e Camera fail 

e Power up 

Access to mail server via Ethernet or dial-up is required for this 
feature. 

Short Message Service texts (SMS) can also be sent to a specified 
mobile phone number, via an SMS capable modem. 


AUDIO 

The user has the option to record and play back audio through the 
unit in real time. Recorded with images, audio can be played back 
directly from the unit via powered external speakers. 

The system can also receive audio from a remote network viewer 
and play it directly out of the unit for audio challenge or help point 
applications. 

Recorded audio is automatically copied when video is archived to 
DVD-R/CD-R or exported across a network.
