Viewing pictures
The hybrid version has two monitor outputs, A and B. The way in which these monitors display
pictures depends on how the system is configured. When an alarm or motion input is
detected, the camera picture with the Alarm/Motion indicator can be displayed on monitor A,
B, or both. When multiple alarms or motion occur, camera pictures are combined in a
multiscreen window on monitor A, B, or both.
Monitor A
Monitor A is the main monitor. It shows full-screen, quad, or multiscreen live or playback
pictures of both analog and IP cameras. Status messages, alarms, motion, and video loss
warnings are also displayed on this monitor. When the menu system is activated it is
displayed on this monitor.
Monitor B (hybrid version only)
Monitor B displays full-screen, quad, or multiscreen live pictures of analog cameras.

password protected. There are three ways of accessing the menu system:

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.
Alarms
An alarm can cause the unit to react as follows:
–
A beeper sounds.
–
A status message is displayed.
–
An alarm icon is displayed.
–
The border around a cameo changes color to red.
–
