Introduction
1.1
Digital video recorder for security applications
5
The Divar XF is a video and audio recording system that records multiple camera and audio
signals while simultaneously providing live multiscreen viewing and playback.
The unit has comprehensive search and playback facilities for viewing stored video. Once
configured, all recording takes place in the background without requiring operator
intervention. Maximum recording rates of 30 (NTSC) and 25 (PAL) images per second, per
channel, are guaranteed. The recording rate and quality are selectable per camera. Up to four
internal hard disks can be used to provide various storage capacities for recording.
All models have extensive alarm handling functions and telemetry control. Alarm functions
include motion detection in user-definable areas of the image on any camera input.
The unit can be easily operated and programmed via the front panel control keys, mouse, and
the on-screen display menu system. Two monitor outputs provide full-screen, quad, and
multiscreen viewing. Connect a KBD (Intuikey) keyboard for PTZ control and to improve the
ease-of-use.
Looping auto-terminating video inputs and outputs, audio inputs and outputs, alarm inputs
and outputs, and remote control connectors are on the rear panel. Two VGA connectors
provide outputs for an A and a B monitor. CVBS and Y/C video outputs in either NTSC or PAL
are also provided. Monitor A displays full-screen or multiscreen digital pictures that can be
frozen and zoomed. Monitor B displays live full-screen or multiscreen pictures.
Use the Control Center PC-application via a network for live viewing, playback, and
configuration. Five simultaneous users can control multiple Divar XFs. The Divar XF includes
an authenticity check for both local and remote playback. A dedicated PC player is provided
for playback of secure video files. The PC-based Configuration Tool facilitates the installation
of the unit.
An SDK (software development kit) is available to integrate the Divar XF into third party
management software.
1.1.1
Versions
There are various Divar XF models; 8-channel and 16-channel with DVD burner option, each
with various storage capacities. Both 8-channel and 16-channel versions operate in exactly the
same way except that fewer camera, audio, and alarm inputs are present, and the number of
available multiscreen views differs.
Optionally, up to 8 IP cameras can be connected (in addition to the 8 or 16 analog input
channels).
1.1.2

Overview of the menu system
The menu gives access to several functions to help you use the unit. Access to some menu
items is password protected. There are three ways of accessing the menu system:
–
via the front panel keys,
–
a USB mouse, or
–
a Intuikey keyboard.
Slight differences in navigation and selection are only due to the differences between the keys
on the unit, the keyboard and the mouse. The menu structure is the same in all cases.
The top menu consists of four main menus with drop-down submenus, a help item and an exit
item.

Event handling
Various types of events change the way the unit works. These events are:
–
a contact input signal applied to the unit;
–
motion detection in a camera signal;
–
a loss of video from one of the cameras;
–
an internal alert from the unit itself (i.e. disk failure, temperature alarm).
The way the unit reacts to events depends on how it is programmed.
An event can change the way the unit works and, if it is an alarm, can require a response from
the user.
Background events
Events can change background tasks that a user may not notice. Unit responses that are not
visible to the user are, for example, a change in recording speed, the activation of the output
relay, or event logging. The unit can also be configured to record upon the activation of an
event or it might change the way the camera images are displayed on the monitors without
requiring user intervention.
