Introduction
1.2
Technical Overview
Your DVR can replace both a time-lapse VCR and a multiplexer in a security
installation. However, it has many features that make it much more powerful and
easier to use than even the most advanced VCR.
The DVR converts analog PAL or NTSC video to digital images and records them
on a hard disk drive. Using a hard disk drive allows you to access recorded video
almost instantaneously; there is no need to rewind tape. The technology also
allows you to view recorded video while the DVR continues recording video.
Digitally recorded video has several advantages over analog video recorded on
tape. There is no need to adjust tracking. You can freeze frames, fast forward,
fast reverse, slow forward and slow reverse without image streaking or tearing.
Digital video can be indexed by time or events, and you can instantly view video
after selecting the time or event.
Your DVR can be set up for event or time-lapse recording. You can define times to
record, and the schedule can change for different days of the week and user
defined holidays.
The DVR can be set up to alert you when the hard disk drive is full, or it can be set
up to record over the oldest video once the disk is full.
Your DVR uses a proprietary encryption scheme making it nearly impossible to
alter video.
You can view video and control your DVR remotely by connecting via modem or
Ethernet. There is a SCSI port that can be used to record or archive video to
external hard disk drives, and also there are two USB ports that can be used to
upgrade the system or copy video clips to external hard disk drives, CD-RW drives
or flash drives.
NOTE:
This manual covers the 9- and 16-channel digital video recorders.
The DVRs are identical except for the number of cameras and alarms that can be
connected and the number of cameras that can be displayed.
For simplicity, the illustrations and descriptions in this manual refer to the 16camera model.

Operation
NOTE:
This chapter assumes your DVR has been installed and configured. If it has not, please refer to
Chapters 2 and 3.
The DVR’s controls are similar to a VCR. As with a VCR, the main functions are
recording and playing back video. However, you have much greater control over
recording and playing back video. You can establish recording schedules based
on time of day and day of the week. The DVR allows you to search through the
recorded video using much more sophisticated tools than those available with
VCRs. Additional DVR features that are not available with VCRs are remote
control and viewing, and recording video at the same time you are watching
previously recorded video.
The front panel controls are described in Chapter 3 — Configuration.
4.1
Turning on the Power
Once you have installed the DVR following the instructions in Chapter 2 —
Installation, it is ready to record. Plugging in the power cord will cause unit to go

Live Monitoring
As soon as the DVR completes its initialization process, it will begin showing live
video on the attached monitor and playing live audio through the attached speaker.
The default mode is to display all cameras at once. Pressing any camera button
will cause that camera to display full screen. It displays live video and plays live
audio until the user enters another mode.
Pressing the Display button cycles the DVR through the different display formats.
Pressing the Sequence button will cause the cameras to display sequentially on
the monitor. When in one of the multi-view formats, pressing this button will cause
the DVR to through user-defined screen layouts (page sequence), or the bottom,
right screen to display live cameras sequentially (cameo sequence). Selecting
another display mode, or pressing the Sequence button again will exit the
Sequence mode. When in one of the multi-view formats, pressing the Left or Right
arrow buttons will cause the DVR to go to the previous or the next page. For
example, if you press the Right arrow button while in 4x4 format, the DVR changes
the page as follows:
Pressing the Freeze button will freeze the current image on the screen until you

NOTE:
The ips (images per second) of the above table is not the configured recording speed per camera, but
the total number of recorded images per second. The values of the table represent the average case,
therefore it is not guaranteed.
The SISTORE AX has a maximum recording speed of 50 images for PAL (60 images for NTSC) per
second (ips) that will be applied globally depending on the number of cameras recorded.
