System supports BNC and VGA output at the same time. See
X284H284H284HError: Reference source not foundX.
When you are using pc-type monitor to replace the monitor, please pay attention to the following points:

To defer aging, do not allow the pc monitor to run for a long time.

Regular demagnetization will keep device maintain proper status.

Keep it away from strong electromagnetic interference devices.
Using TV as video output device is not a reliable substitution method. You also need to reduce the working hour
and control the interference from power supply and other devices. The low quality TV may result in device
damage.

2. Alarm output
The alarm output port should not be connected to high power load directly (It shall be less than 1A) to avoid
high current which may result in relay damage. Please use the co contactor to realize the connection
between the alarm output port and the load.
3. How to connect PTZ decoder
a. Ensure the decoder has the same grounding with DVR, otherwise you may not control the PTZ. Shielded
twisted wire is recommended and the shielded layer is used to connect to the grounding.
b. Avoid high voltage. Ensure proper wiring and some thunder protection measures.
c. For too long signal wires, 120Ω should be parallel connected between A, B lines on the far end to reduce
reflection and guarantee the signal quality.
d. “485 A, B” of DVR cannot parallel connect with “485 port” of other device.
e. The voltage between of A,B lines of the decoder should be less than 5v.
4. Please make sure the front-end device has soundly earthed.
