Vicon Product Facts Product Specification

Product Specification
Manual and sequential switching options are supported, including
ascending order and random order switching. Full camera-monitor partitioning and up to 256 timed events may be programmed.
Default camera-monitor assignments or a default tour may be
programmed for power-on system startup after a power outage.
Switching modes also include salvo or zone switching and
sequencing salvos, with up to eight camera-monitor pairs per
salvo. These may be selected manually or automatically. Salvos
may be called up manually or by alarm. Each salvo can have a
unique combination of camera, monitor, and preset position.

The NOVA V1422 CPU-based Control and Switching System
puts the massive power of the big NOVA digital control systems
into a compact package for small systems, and it adds many new
features. The V1422 is a self-contained, full-featured digital
control system and matrix switcher for systems with up to 32
camera inputs and 8 monitor outputs. It includes ProTech
Graphic Configurator Software.
The V1422 may be operated by its own built-in keypad or by
eight external V1300X-RVC, V1300X-DVC or V1411X-DVC
series keypads, by a V1400X-DVC-3 System Console, by a PC
network of up to eight stations or by a host computer over an
RS-232 interface. V1300X-RVC, V1300X-DVC, V1400XDVC-3 and PCs may be mixed. The host computer interface
permits control of all system functions. An additional RS-232
port provides an output to a printer for printing alarm incident

Another standard feature of the V1422 is the most extensive toursequence support available anywhere. Up to 64 pan/tilt and video
guard-tour sequences of 32 steps each may be programmed. Up
to eight tours may run concurrently (one per monitor). Each tour
step includes an assigned preset position with variable solve speed
and variable dwell time. Salvo tours may also be programmed.
Tours may also be programmed to start automatically at a particular time every day or on specific days.
Tours may be manually interrupted and resumed, or they may
be interrupted by an alarm input and resume when the alarm is
acknowledged. Multiple tours may be chained together, and
tours may also be looped, that is set so that the tour restarts
automatically when the last step is completed.
The V1422 supports nine operator keypads, one built-in and
eight remotes. Up to 64 users may be passcoded through the
V1422 to use the system, each user being able to access from one
to nine keypads. A user may be active on only one keypad at a
time, and each keypad may be assigned a unique priority level.
The V1422 accepts both NOVA (VPS) and Vicoax receivers.
NOVA receivers communicate with the V1422 using RS-422
mode through a D-shell connector on the rear panel. Vicoax
receivers use coaxial cabling for both video and control data,
which provides a method of reducing cabling costs.
Alarm operation includes 64 alarm inputs, 32 via a built-in interface and 32 via receivers. Up to eight monitors may be assigned as
alarm monitors. Programs include independent alarm stacks per
monitor or a common stack (salvo alarms). Priority may be
first-in, first-out (FIFO) or priority based on camera input number.
Sequencing alarms with adjustable dwell is also provided.
Acknowledgment may be manual or automatic, with adjustable
dwell, and each monitor may be programmed to restore the
prealarm state, to go blank, or not to change upon acknowledgment
of an alarm. An RS-232 serial port is provided to allow an alarm log
to be printed. Alarms are printed automatically.

Product Specification (cont’d)
The V1422 may be programmed from its own front panel
via on-screen menus, and the programming menus may be
displayed on any system monitor.
A master real-time clock controls the timing of time-based
functions in the V1422. Up to 256 discrete events may be
programmed for timer activation, including camera-monitor
switches, tour sequence starts, salvo and preset selects, and alarm
input enable/disable pattern for three time periods per day.
Comprehensive time, date, and titling support is standard in the
V1422 software. Each camera and each monitor may have a
20-character title, and there are four possible t/d/t layouts for
each monitor display. One 20-character title may be
programmed for each alarm input. A 20-character title may be
programmed for each preset position; this displays whenever its
associated preset position is executed. Lastly, sector titles may be
programmed to be displayed as a camera pans into a defined
part of its viewing area.
Time and date may be enabled or disabled for each monitor, and
camera and alarm titles and preset titles may similarly be
enabled or disabled for each monitor. Time and date may also
be enabled or disabled for each camera input. Title fade with an
adjustable dwell time may be programmed for each monitor.
Built-in diagnostic routines will test the following functions:
ROM, RAM, and EEPROM memory tests;
Video switching and TDT output tests;
Alarm interface test;
Serial port tests;
Local front panel tests for switches and displays.
The V1422 maintains system compatibility with most VPS1300,
VPS1400, NOVA 1500 and current VPS1200 components:
V1300X-DVC, V1300X-RVC, V1411XKeypads: DVC series, PCs with PacPro software,
Receivers: V1311RB, Surveyor
Alarm Interfaces: V1300X-IA
Distribution Line: V1400X-DL-1
Relay/Audio Switcher: V1332AF, V2332AF
The V1422 is equipped with a power supply that can accept
90-265 V, 50 or 60 Hz inputs, so that one model is compatible
with both NTSC and PAL television systems.
The V1422 complies with FCC standards for a Class A
computing device.
