Electrical Safety Notice and Warnings
Warning:
1. Read the installation instructions before you connect the unit to a power
source.
2. Electrical safety should always be observed. All electrical connections must be
performed by a certified electrician.
3. Use the supplied power supply and protect against static electricity,
ground faults and power surges.
4. If the unit uses a three-wire power cord, make sure that the product is properly
grounded when in use. NEVER remove or otherwise attempt to bypass the
ground pin of the power cord. Do not operate the unit in the absence of a
suitably installed ground conductor.
5. If you use an extension cord with this system, make sure that the total ampere
rating on the products plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the
extension cord ampere rating.
6. To avoid possible shock hazards or damaging the unit, assure that the positive
and negative of the power leads are properly connected to the terminal block
connector before plugging it into the unit or turning on the power source.
7. In the following situations, the electric power should be turned off immediately
and appropriate repairs, replacements or remedies should be taken if:
xii

The power line or plug (if used) is damaged, frayed or shows
heavy wear.

The unit has been physically crushed or deformed.

The unit has been exposed to water.

The unit has been exposed to, or shows signs of damage from,
fire, intense heat, heavy smoke, fumes, or vapors.

Electrical connections of the unit become abnormally hot or generate
smoke.

The unit has been dropped, damaged or shows signs of loose internal
parts.

The unit does not operate properly.
Document Information
Minimizing EMI and RFI
When wires run for a significant distance in an electromagnetic field, electromagnetic interference
(EMI) can occur. Strong EMI (e.g. lightning or radio transmitters) can destroy the units and can pose
an electrical hazard by conducting power through lines and into the system. Poor quality or worn
wiring can result in radio frequency interference (RFI). To minimize the effects of EMI and RFI,
consult your reseller.
Site Preparation
There are several requirements that should be properly addressed prior to installation at the site.
The following specifications are requirements for proper installation and operation of the unit:

Ambient Environment Conditions: Avoid positioning the unit near heaters or heating
system outputs. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight. Use proper maintenance to ensure that
the unit is free from dust, dirt, smoke, particles, chemicals, smoke, water or water
condensation, and exposure to EMI.

Accessibility: The location used should allow easy access to unit connections and cables.

Safety: Cables and electrical cords should be routed in a manner that prevents safety
hazards, such as from tripping, wire fraying, overheating, etc. Ensure that nothing rests on
the unit’s cables or power cords.

Ample Air Circulation: Leave enough space around the unit to allow free air circulation.

Cabling Considerations: Units should be placed in locations that are optimal for
the type of video cabling used between the unit and the cameras and external
devices. Using a cable longer than the manufacturer’s specifications for optimal
video signal may result in degradation of color and video parameters.

Physical Security: The unit provides threat detection for physical security systems. In order
to ensure that the unit cannot be disabled or tampered with, the system should be installed
with security measures regarding physical access by trusted and un-trusted parties.

Network Security: The unit transmits over IP to security personnel for video surveillance.
Proper network security measures should be in place to assure networks remain operating
and free from malicious interference. The unit is intended for installation on the backbone
of a trusted network.

Electrostatic Safeguards: The unit as well as other equipment connected to it (relay
outputs, alarm inputs, racks, carpeting, etc.) shall be properly grounded to prevent
electrostatic discharge.
The physical installation of the unit is the first phase of making the unit operational in a security
plan. The goal is to physically place the unit, connect it to other devices in the system, and to
establish network connectivity.

Read the instructions provided in this chapter thoroughly before installing the camera. Following are
additional considerations for indoor installation:

There must be a fuse or circuit breaker at the starting point of the electrical wiring
infrastructure.

For indoor installations, such as industrial applications, the camera must be protected from
hostile external elements (e.g. corrosive environment, metallic dust, extreme temperatures,
soot, moisture, over spray, etc.)

Do not place the camera on or near radiators and heat sources.

All electrical work must be performed in accordance with local regulatory requirements.

Read the instructions provided in this chapter thoroughly before installing the camera. Following are
additional considerations for outdoor installation:

For outside wiring installation, always use weatherproof equipment, such as boxes,
receptacles, connectors, etc.

For electrical wiring, use the properly rated sheathed cables for conditions to which the
cable will be exposed (for example, moisture, heat, UV, physical requirements, etc.).

Plan ahead to determine where to install infrastructure weatherproof equipment. Whenever
possible, ground components to an outdoor ground.

Use best security practices to design and maintain secured camera access, communications
infrastructure, tamper-proof outdoor boxes, etc.

All electrical work must be performed in accordance with local regulatory requirements.

Using the DNA Utility to Search and Access the Camera
6 Using the DNA Utility to Search and Access the Camera
6.1 Introduction
The DVTEL Network Assistant (DNA) is a user-friendly utility that is designed to easily discover and
configure DVTEL edge devices on a network.
The DNA tool has a simple user interface and does not require any installation. The software is
provided as a single, standalone executable. It runs on any PC.
DNA provides a central location for listing all the DVTEL CM, CF and CP camera models accessible
over the network. Once listed, each camera can be right-clicked to access and change the network
settings.
If the network settings are changed for some reason, a new search will relist the units. The units may
then be configured via the web interface.
If DVTEL Latitude is being used, configure the unit with a static IP address rather than with DHCP.
This ensures that the IP address will not automatically change in the future and interfere with
configurations and communication.
The camera must be made accessible for the network’s addressing.
Note:
DNA is an enhanced software alternative to Device Search. Either of these programs
may be used.
To install DVTEL Web Player (DCViewer) software online:
Upon initial connection to the camera, a prompt to install the DVTEL Web Player (DCViewer)
appears. If the web browser does not allow DVTEL Web Player to install, check the Internet security
settings or ActiveX controls and plug-in settings to continue the process. See Internet Security
Settings.
Caution:
Users who have previously installed the DVTEL Web Player (DCViewer) on the PC
should delete the existing DCViewer from the PC before accessing the camera. For
information on how to uninstall and clear Temporary Internet Files, see Appendix A5:
Deleting the Existing DCViewer.
Follow the instructions below to start using the DNA application.
35
Quasar CP-3211/CP-4221 User and Installation Guide
6.2 Quick Start
1. Install and run the DNA application on a computer connected to the network. The
software is an .exe file supplied in a zip file together with an Online Help file (.chm).
2. Extract both files from the zip file, and place them together in a new directory. Both files
should have the same name, but different extensions (.exe and .chm).
3. Upon launching the tool, DNA automatically discovers all devices on the network. The
initial launch creates a default .ini file (dna.ini).
4. In the event that there are devices that are not authenticated, click Login and enter login
credentials for the devices.
5. If there are devices located on a separate VLAN, the devices must be added manually.
Click Add Device Manually from the Operational Toolbar and add the devices.

QoS (Quality of Service)
QoS provides differentiated service levels for different types of traffic packets and guarantees
delivery of priority services during periods of network congestion. Adapting the Differentiated
Services (DiffServ) model, traffic flows are classified and marked with DSCP (DiffServ Code point)
values, and as a result receive the corresponding forwarding treatment from DiffServ-capable
routers.
Figure 42: Network QoS Screen – DSCP Settings
DSCP Settings
The DSCP value range is from 0 to 63. The default DSCP value is 0 (DSCP disabled). The camera uses
the following QoS classes: Video, Audio, and Management.
 Video DSCP – This class consists of applications such as MJPEG over HTTP, RTP/RTSP and
RTSP/HTTP.
Note:
MJPEG is not supported by Latitude.
 Audio DSCP – The CP-3211/4221 cameras support audio.
 Management DSCP – This class consists of HTTP traffic (web browsing).

H.264 Profile
The H.264 standard defines 21 sets of capabilities. These are referred to as profiles and they target
specific classes of applications. In the security industry, the most common are as follows:

Baseline Profile (BP)
Primarily for low-cost applications that require additional data loss robustness, Baseline
Profile is used in some videoconferencing and mobile applications. This is the most common
profile used in IP security cameras due to the low computational cost of processing the video
using this profile.

Main Profile (MP)
This profile provides improved picture quality at reduced bandwidths and storage costs and
is becoming more common as the camera processors (DSPs) become more able to handle
the processing load. Main Profile can save 10-30% over Baseline.

High Profile (HP)
High Profile is the primary profile for HD broadcast and Blu-ray HD disc media applications. It
can save 10-30% of the storage cost over Main Profile. However, it may also increase video
latency, depending on the stream structure. Quasar models default to the Main Profile to
provide the best trade-off between storage size and video latency.

WDR
This setting controls digital Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). The camera also supports multi-exposure
WDR (True WDR), which is explained below. True WDR is set from the TV System drop-down list.
Digital WDR improves the image quality of scenes which have very dark areas and light areas in
different parts of the scene. This causes the camera to determine average exposure settings
corresponding to the average brightness of the scene. This results in the dark areas being too dark
and the light areas being oversaturated. The digital WDR implements post-processing enhancement
in order to balance the contrast level received from the sensor, thus improving the image quality.
Select On or Off. Click Set to confirm the setting.
Inverse

TV System
The camera supports multi-exposure WDR (True WDR), which is implemented by using a
combination of slow- and fast-exposure shutters. The camera uses an algorithm to determine the
optimal mix of regions within the scene from the two shutters in order to adjust the wide dynamic
range of the scene. True WDR is recommended for most lighting conditions is enabled by default.
From the drop-down list, select the video format that matches your TV system and the type of WDR
you prefer:

WDR 30 fps (NTSC) – Enables the use of True WDR on an NTSC TV system

WDR 25 fps (PAL) – Enables the use of True WDR on a PAL TV system

Tip:
A camera setup adapter, such as Veracity Pinpoint, can be used to connect a

A.2.2 Searching and Accessing the Camera with Device Search
Device Search provides a central location for listing all the DVTEL CM, CF and CP camera models
accessible over the network. Once listed, each camera can be right-clicked to access and change the
network settings.
Once the network settings are changed, a new search will relist the units. The units may then be
configured via the web interface.
If DVTEL Latitude is being used, configure the unit with a static IP address rather than with DHCP.
This ensures that the IP address will not automatically change in the future and interfere with
configurations and communication.
The camera must be made accessible for the network’s addressing. For initial access to the camera,
do either of the following and search and configure the camera’s network settings via Device Search:

In Latitude, the Device Configuration Tool (Unified Configurator) can be accessed from the
Applications menu, if AdminCenter is available. Click the DVTEL HD Series button.

Run devicesearch.exe, which can be found in the Device Search folder in the supplied CD.
Note:
Device Search is an alternative software to DNA. Either of these programs may
be used. They are supplied in the included CD.
A.2.3 Configuring Communication Settings of a Quasar Camera
To configure communication settings:
1. Connect the camera to the network on the same VLAN/LAN as the workstation.
2. If the network supports the default, open Device Search by doing one of the following:
Access the Device Configuration Tool (Unified Configurator) from the Applications
menu, if the AdminCenter in Latitude is available. Click the DVTEL HD Series button.
Run devicesearch.exe which can be found in the Device Search folder in the
supplied CD.
Note:
Device Search is an alternative software to DNA. Either of these programs
may be used. They are supplied on the included CD.
3. In the Device Search application, click the Device Search button.

Instructions on disabling the Windows Firewall.
Figure 114: Windows Security Alert
Click Device Search again. All the discovered IP devices will be listed in the page, as
shown in the figure below. The camera’s default IP address is automatically set by
the DHCP server.
5. Right-click on the camera whose network property is to be changed. From the menu that
opens, select Network Setup. The Network Setup dialog is displayed.
Tip:
Record the camera’s MAC address for future reference.
6. To access Device Search, do one of the following:
For DHCP (not supported by Latitude):
i)
Select DHCP. Do not use for Latitude.
ii) Click Apply. When prompted with instructions to search again after one minute,
click OK.
iii) After one minute, click Device Search.
For Static IP (recommended for Latitude users):
i)
Select Static IP (preferable for security and Latitude users). In the IP Address,
Gateway, and Netmask, enter the respective LAN/VLAN (optional DNS) values.
ii) Click Apply. When prompted with instructions to search again after one minute,
click OK.
iii) After one minute, click Device Search. The communication settings should now
be changed and ready to install the camera on the network. Access it either via
the browser-based viewer or Latitude NVMS.
