SISTORE MX NVS
SISTORE MX NVS consists of a scalable client-server architecture. The SISTORE
MX NVS servers and the SISTORE RemoteView clients are distributed in the
network and enable the design and configuration of small to large video monitoring
systems.
SISTORE MX NVS (server)
Each server supports the administration, recording and playback of up to 64 LAN
cameras. For larger systems, multi-server configurations are supported. It is
possible to connect LAN cameras from Siemens as well as from third parties to the
server. See Section 7.1 General information on LAN cameras.
SISTORE RemoteView (client)
SISTORE RemoteView is a client application which can be installed independent of
the other software components. In this version SISTORE RemoteView, SISTORE
Player and the Software Codec are installed. Using SISTORE RemoteView,
configuration, operation, live image display and evaluation can be performed over
the network.

SISTORE RemoteView
The SISTORE RemoteView software provides you with the option of convenient
remote access evaluation of existing video sequences. SISTORE MX NVS
functions as the server with SISTORE RemoteView as the client. This makes
evaluation from any location possible if the SISTORE MX NVS system and the PC
intended for evaluation are networked. Finally a connection via LAN, DSL or ISDN
to the SISTORE MX NVS system is then required.
NOTE:
The time zones of the SISTORE RemoteView and the SISTORE MX NVS server must be set the
same, otherwise display errors will occur (such as incorrect time display).
NOTE:
You must have administrative rights to install and run the SISTORE RemoteView software on the PC.
4.3
SISTORE WebView
The SISTORE MX NVS server can be operated not only with SISTORE
RemoteView but also using a browser.
Use the following browsers for this:
z Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x or later
SISTORE MX NVS WebView allows the use of all viewing functions of the
video system over the network on a client PC.
SISTORE MX NVS WebView provides the following functions:
z Retrieval and playback of video recordings
z Display of live images
z Bandwidth limitation of the video server
z Password protection, users and passwords are set up on each SISTORE MX
NVS server via the user administration.
z Live image display, up to 16 live images in parallel, with random access to
cameras connected to various SISTORE MX NVS servers (multi-server access)
for logged in users with the user right "Display".
z Playback of saved images, only 1-channel playback.
z Search by date and time
z Playback control: forward, reverse, single image step
As a web solution, SISTORE MX NVS WebView and the MX Video Server are
installed on a dedicated server and can be loaded and operated by any number of
Windows clients. The prerequisite is that the client be connected to the web server
via TCP-IP with Microsoft Internet Explorer and the Java Runtime Environment
installed in the versions required.
SISTORE MX NVS WebView can be run in German or English.
From the operating stations, any camera – regardless of the associated station –
can be selected. The images are output on the monitors of the client PCs.
NOTE:
As of version 2.60, the SISTORE WebView software is an independent product and has to be ordered
separately.

NOTE:
Please note when setting up filters for multiple subscriber numbers (MSNs) that these are
communicated differently depending on the telephone system. The formulation of a filter must match
the transmission method of your telephone system.
You can refuse certain telephone numbers and IP addresses network access to
the SISTORE MX NVS software. To do this set up an appropriate connection filter
in the Reject incoming calls list field. Wildcards (*) can be used to group IP
addresses or telephone numbers.
In order to make an exception for a telephone number or IP address in a group of
banned telephone numbers or IP addresses, add a connection filter for it to Allow
incoming calls.

General information on LAN cameras
Be aware of the following when using LAN cameras:
z Multiple users can access LAN cameras simultaneously. Simultaneous access
by multiple users lowers the frame rate.
z Settings made by a user on a LAN camera, such as modifying the image
parameters via a browser, have system-wide effects.

Depending on the functional scope of the LAN camera, many operating elements
of the LAN cameras tab may be disabled.
Altogether a maximum of 64 LAN cameras can be connected.
Access to LAN cameras takes place with greater latency. The reason for this is the
greater communication load between the SISTORE MX NVS and a LAN camera.
Besides the LAN cameras, the network also has an effect on the latency.
The operation of the system can be slow if all connections for LAN cameras (64)
are used.
Exact specifications for the image quality and the required hard drive capacity are
not possible with LAN cameras, since each LAN camera has different quality levels
and interprets specifications differently.

alarm (
)
z or an alarm input carries voltage only in the case of an alarm and otherwise not
(
).
The level sensitive checkbox allows you to determine whether a recording ends
directly after an edge or continues until the next edge.
Example:
The SISTORE MX NVS should start recording when a door is opened and stop
when the door closes. The door opener (alarm input) generates a short signal
(level change / edge) upon opening and closing of the door. If the level sensitive
checkbox is not marked, the SISTORE MX NVS records only short sequences
when the door is opened and when it is closed. If the checkbox is marked, the
SISTORE MX NVS records a longer sequence from when the door opens until it is
closed.

Configuring network commands
Some LAN cameras can send user-definable commands via the protocols SMTP
or HTTP/TCP. The SISTORE MX NVS server reacts to the text in the text fields
(see Fig. 73). If this text is consistent with the command received, an alarm signal
will be triggered.
The SISTORE MX NVS application software receives messages via IP port 80
(HTTP messages and TCP data) and IP port 25 (SMTP, i.e. e-mail server). The IP
ports 80 and 25 are set by default.
104H
z Basically, TCP is the fastest way to send messages, HTTP messages are slightly slower. E-mail
messages sent via SMTP are slower but not as slow as regular e-mail messages.
z The IP port of the LAN camera and the IP port of the SISTORE MX NVS application software must
be identical. See Section 5.8.1 Matching IP ports.
105H
106H
z With some cameras, it is not possible to change the IP port.
z The IP ports configured apply to all alarm inputs.
Fig. 73

Î The following commands in the Network group field are configured by default:
Command that activates an input (level to High)
The following commands are defined by default: TRIGGER01ON for the first input,

Command that deactivates an input (level to High)
The following commands are defined by default: TRIGGER01OFF for the first input,
TRIGGER02OFF for the second input, etc. up to TRIGGER32OFF.
Command that switches an input in pulsed mode (Low -> High -> Low)
The level is set to "High" for 1 second and then to "Low" again.
The following commands are defined by default: TRIGGER01PULSE for the first input,
TRIGGER02PULSE for the second input, etc. up to TRIGGER32PULSE.
5. If you want to define other commands, please note the following:
– It is recommended to always include the ID of the LAN alarm input in the
command in order that the command can be allocated to the alarm input.
– The command configured in the software of the LAN camera must be
consistent with the command defined here.
– Enter the commands in capital letters and without spaces.
– Information on how to configure TCP/HTTP and SMTP commands can be

General information about the storage location
The SISTORE MX NVS application software supports recording on separate hard
drives and hard drive partitions.
DANGER
z Ensure that there is sufficient storage space on the target drive.
z Do not use external USB hard drives, since this can lead to data loss.
z Do not use CD/DVD writers as "substitute" hard drives, since these are not
supported by the SISTORE MX NVS software.
Drives enabled for recording
After activating the bank and automated teller operation (cash box mode), the drive
D:\ is reserved for recording cash box image files and is no longer available.
Use of network drives
All network drives for which the user has rights will be shown in the list of drives.
As soon as a network drive is selected, the local drives serve only as replacement
drives for if the network drive fails. If the network drive becomes available again
after it has been unavailable, recording will take place again on the network drive
after the next file change.
Network drives must generally be mapped, i.e. access to a network drive can only
occur via a drive letter and not via a shared name. Ensure that the network drive is
sufficiently fast and has enough bandwidth.

the operating system. By marking the checkbox Use max. hard drive storage
capacity you can deactivate this limitation. However, this can lead to an unstable
and unusable system. We recommend not setting this option.
After an update this option is set and must be manually reset by the user.

Configuring the number of recordings
In the Cash box parameters group field you can specify how many test, suspicion
and holdup recordings are saved continuously. For suspicion and holdup
recordings, the SISTORE MX NVS software creates an internal write protection
that cannot be removed by the user.
Suspicion and holdup recordings will be triggered if an alarm input with suspicion
or holdup priority is assigned to a particular camera and reports an alarm to this
camera. Triggering suspicion and holdup recordings is recorded in the log book so
that it is possible to search selectively for these recordings at a later date.
Trial recordings are triggered manually by the user. Further information on this can
be found in the SISTORE MX NVS User Manual.
Note
For suspicion and holdup recordings, the SISTORE MX NVS application software creates an internal
write protection that cannot be removed by the user. As soon as the set number of suspicion and
holdup recordings is reached, the system enables the oldest recording of the particular type to be
deleted. Afterward this recording is treated like an ordinary room recording and can be automatically
overwritten by the system if necessary.

cash dispenser types can differ a little from the settings options of the PBM type.
Picture per step/Telegram
Indicate here how many images per step/telegram are to be recorded.
Picture recording
The image recording for the images 1, 2 and 3 (or for the image group if multiple
images are recorded from one camera or various cameras for a telegram) will be
initiated based on the step ID, i.e. the step ID determines whether and when an
image or an image group is recorded. The setting for which steps are used is made
here with three configurable steps:
z First picture from step: for the first image recording
z Second picture from step: for the second image recording
z Third picture from step: for the third image recording
If no step is specified for the third image or for the image group, image 3 will be
recorded at a delay time (VZ_BILD_BILD) from image 2 which can be set in the
configuration.
Note
In order for the cash dispenser link to ensure secure operation, at least two fields (step 3 and 10 or
11) in the cash dispenser must be enabled!
The enabling takes place directly on the cash dispenser via the “CI”. This involves the configuration
file “Custom.dat”.
Time
The following settings can be made in the Time group field:
z Time synchronization:
If multiple cash dispensers are connected to a SISTORE MX NVS system this
specification can define which ones synchronize the SISTORE MX NVS system.
We recommend enabling time synchronization only for one interface (one cash
dispenser); if the cash dispensers have different times, this is urgently
necessary.
z Timeout:
After a set timeout period an active transaction is automatically ended. This is
necessary in order to close transactions properly for which the last specified step
is missing, for example with an account balance query. The specification of the
timeout is in seconds.
TIMEOUT=300
If a transaction is ended by a timeout, an archive entry with status=2 is made.
z Timestep:
The TIMESTEP parameter can determine which telegram is used for the
synchronization. This is to achieve optimal agreement of the time between the
SISTORE MX NVS archive and the cash dispenser journal.
Delay of picture recording
The following fields can be used to define the delay times in seconds between the
arrival of the telegram and the actual recording of the image:
z Portrait

To determine the positions from the telegram, the log mechanism in the file

Then the telegrams can be represented via the log file DTC_GAA.log.
EC / Credit card distinction
The telegrams of EC cards and credit cards differ, depending on cash dispensers
or computing centres, by particular characteristic characters (such as blank
spaces), which are at a particular position in the telegram and also differ
sometimes in the length of the telegram. These characteristic characters are
identifiable by their ASCII code.
z Enter the position of the characteristic character, such as 39, in the field
"Telegram position".
Example

z Enter the ASCII code of the characteristic character in the field "Indication", such
as the number "32" for a blank space. Example:
Example
37
Character for differentiation as ASCII code //e.g. Chr(32) = " "
In exceptional cases, the telegram generated by a credit card is longer.
z Enter the difference in telegram length of the two card types in the
corresponding field, for example 7.
Example
7
// Difference in telegram length between EC and credit card, for

space at this position. A blank space has the ASCII code "32".

Testing the Watchdog

Testing the Watchdog
NOTE:
In order that the Watchdog function is available on a server PC, the PC system a must have an
integrated Watchdog board.
We recommend integrating a Watchdog module type PWDOG1 from Quancom.
Further information can be found in the Installation Manual in chapter 6.2.
The Watchdog restarts the system in case of certain events, such as a server
crash.
Function
If the PC system has an integrated Watchdog module from Quancom, this
watchdog acts as a timer which closes a relay contact after a specified time. In
normal operation, the timer of the SISTORE MX NVS server is continuously
restarted so that it never runs out. If the system gets into a state in which it no
longer reacts and can no longer reinitialize the watchdog, the timer runs out, the
relay contact is closed and a restart is triggered via the reset line of the system.

25.14 Configuring user management
There are 2 user groups in SISTORE RemoteView:
z Administrator: An administrator has the user right Configuration for SISTORE
RemoteView as well as the user right Re-Play (offline evaluation) for local
evaluation of databases. Further information on this can be found in the
SISTORE MX NVS User Manual.
z User: A user does not have the user rights Configuration and Re-Play (offline
evaluation).
"Users“ need 2 user accounts: 1 account for the SISTORE MX NVS application
software and 1 account for SISTORE RemoteView. If you create two accounts with
identical user names and passwords the user will have to log on only once (as of
V2.80).
User rights must be assigned in the SISTORE MX NVS application software. See
Section 13 Configuring user and access management. The user right
Configuration is assigned separately for SISTORE MX and SISTORE
RemoteView; this means that a user who has been granted the right

25.15 Configuring SISTORE MX NVS via SISTORE RemoteView
SISTORE RemoteView can be used for remote configuration of a SISTORE MX
server. This function corresponds to the function for importing a configuration,
except that a configuration file is sent by remote data transfer to the server.
Transmission errors should be detected by a checksum contained by the configuration file. If the
checksum is incorrect, the configuration will not be imported.
For changes to the configuration the same dialogs are used as in the SISTORE
MX NVS application software.
The functions of the dialogs and dialog elements are therefore the same.
The following limitations apply in this regard:
z It is not possible to display motion detection.
z Recording media (hard drive partitions) cannot be changed.
z A database directory cannot be specified.
z The language version cannot be changed.
z The option "Always in foreground" cannot be changed.
z The option "On-screen keyboard" cannot be changed.
z Network parameters cannot be changed.
Prerequisite:
z The SISTORE MX NVS application software is in display mode. See Section
4.1.1 Display mode.
1693H
1694H
Banking mode, cash dispenser mode and the recording media cannot be activated/deactivated via
SISTORE RemoteView.
You have two options to configure a SISTORE MX server:
z Option A: online, i.e. transmission of the configuration, changing of the
configuration, loading of the configuration, starting of the configuration on the
server.
– OR –
z Option B: offline, i.e. an existing configuration is edited without a connection to
the server, then a connection is established and the configuration is sent to the
server.
25.15.1 Online configuration (option A)

After receiving the configuration, the server will import and apply it.
Recording will be stopped for a few seconds. The connection to RemoteView will be terminated.
7. Check whether the server is recording again and everything is running properly.
Î The transfer of a new configuration is recorded as information in the server's
logbook. The logbook will also indicate whether the server has accepted and
applied the new configuration.
z If a configuration contains more cameras than are available on the recording system, only the first
cameras of the configuration will be applied. All further cameras will be ignored.
z This also applies for objects that are in a configuration but are not physically present in the
recording system.
z Settings which cannot be configured remotely, such as recording drives, network settings or
deleting or adding LAN cameras, will not be applied by the server from the new configuration. For
these parameters the existing settings will continue to be used. This is to avoid malfunctions.
A malfunctions may result in a server restart triggered by the Watchdog. The malfunction will possibly
be corrected by the restart.

Video formats supported
The image files created by SISTORE MX NVS have the file extension ".k26" or
".avi", depending on the setting. These are files in a format similar to AVI, though
the k26 files can only be viewed with the SISTORE Player. The AVI files can be
played back with any ordinary media player if an appropriate CODEC is installed in
the operating system.
The recordings have a resolution of 352 x 288 pixels (for normal picture quality),
704 x 288 pixels (for high picture quality), and 704 x 576 pixels (4CIF) for
maximum picture quality (SISTORE MX 3G only).
