5.3 ADVANCED RECORDING
Advanced recording is comprised of customizing various event recording options such
as alarm, video loss and motion. Event recording maximizes recording time with the
available storage space. Event recording can also utilize the backup mode hard drives
in addition to normal recording hard drives for duplicate copies of the events. For more
information, please refer to 6.3.7 BACKUP MODE under 6.3 RECORD SETUP on page
100.
Prior to activating event recording, please verify that event options are activated in
either the QUICK SETUP menu or the RECORD PROGRAM menu. Please note that if
QUICK SETUP is not used, then certain parameters in the EVENT menu must be
activated for the event recording to work properly. Moreover, please verify that the
proper program number is being used under RECORD SETUP.
There are two methods for event recording. The first method is recording events in
addition to manual recording, and the second method is event recording only. The first
method involves leaving the REC button on to start recording manually and combining
event recording. This would be useful in a scenario where a location needs to be
recorded continuously even at a very minimal recording speed, but when an event is
triggered, the recording speed is boosted to the desired pictures per second. The
second method involves leaving the REC button off so that only events are recorded.
The following settings will assume that the second method is used for event recording.
With either method, the events will trigger the designated relays and send out
59
SAGA “XL” Series
notification e-mails if the e-mail addresses have been defined. Please see 6.4.8 RELAY
OUTPUT under 6.4 EVENT SETUP section on page 106 and 6.6.5 E-MAIL under 6.5
LINK SETUP on page 124.
5.3.1 ALARM RECORDING
Alarm recording is a form of event recording that triggers off of the circuit lines
connected to the terminal blocks in the rear of the DVR. Typical circuits comprise of
normally closed circuits (NC) and normally open circuits (NO).
Please verify that the alarm option has been selected in either QUICK SETUP or
RECORD PROGRAM.
The channels on which the alarm is triggered will
display the “ALARM” message. The REC button will
light up as the DVR starts to record and the channel
status will change to red.
The recording will include the pre and post recording
time on the channels that are recording.
5.3.2 VIDEO LOSS RECORDING
Video loss recording is a form of event recording that is triggered when a channel loses
its video input signal. Video loss recording is useful to have other channels compensate
for the loss of the video signal on a specific channel. For example, when a video loss
occurs on channel 1, then the DVR can start recording on channel 2, 3 and 4.
Moreover, the channel which loses the video signal will retain the last five seconds of
the video to retain what occurred before the video loss.
Please verify that the video loss option has been selected in either QUICK SETUP or
RECORD PROGRAM.
The channel on which the video loss occurred will
display the “VLOSS” message. The REC button will
light up as the channels that are designated to record
when a specific channel has a video loss start
recording.
On the example to the left, channels 2, 3 and 4 are
designated to record when channel 1 goes out.
The recording will include the pre and post recording time on the channels that are
recording.
60
SAGA “XL” Series
5.3.3 MOTION RECORDING
Motion recording is yet another effective form of event recording that is triggered when a
channel detects motion in its field of view as the MPEG compression algorithm allows
for accurate and error-free motion detection.
The channels which detect motion will display the
“MOTION” message. The REC button will light up
and the channel status will change the color to red in
the channels in which the motion was detected.
The recording will include the pre and post recording
time on the channels that are recording.

1. RECORD PROGRAM
There are 10 available record programs, from program 0 through program 9, where
program 0 reflects the QUICK SETUP settings. Each program can be customized
and executed from RECORD SETUP. Please see 4.7 BASIC RECORDING under
IV. BASIC OPERATION section on page 41 for the default settings for each program.
2. IMAGE SIZE
The DVR is capable of recording in three different
resolutions: CIF (360 x 240), Half D1 (720 x 240)
and D1 (720 x 480).
Note: The resolution can be configured
independently per groups of cameras if necessary
as shown in the illustration to the left.
3. NORMAL RECORD RATE
Normal Record configures the recording speed for each channel for manual
(continuous) recording. When manual recording is activated, every channel will
record as defined by user or preset settings.
The maximum total recording rate per resolution is 480PPS in CIF, 240PPS in Half
D1 and 120PPS for D1 for the VT-XL1680 and 240PPS in CIF, 120PPS for Half D1
and 60PPS in D1 for the VT-XL840.
The recording rate is further divided in groups of
four channels, where the maximum recording rate
for each group is 120 in CIF, 60 in Half D1 and 30
in D1.
Note: The illustration on the left shows the
maximum total allowed per resolution and per
group, as group A’s total is 120 in CIF, group B’s
total is 60 in Half D1 and Group C’s total is 30 in
D1 resolution.
4. EVENT RECORD SETTING
The DVR offers two distinctive methods for recording events: SINGLE mode versus
COMPLEX mode. Furthermore, both modes offer EVENT CHANNEL only and ALL
CHANNELS mode for a total of four possible event recording options.
94
SAGA “XL” Series
A. Single Mode
Single Mode event recording allows recording a specific channel at up to 30 pictures
per second regardless of the image size. When the need arises to record at a
higher rate for a specific channel and not be confined to the total available record
rate, SINGLE mode allows allocating recording rates to specific channels beyond
what would normally be available. For example, the VT-XL1680 offers only 120 PPS
of maximum recording rate in D1 resolution, but utilizing Single Mode will allow the
DVR to be configured up to 480 PPS.
Please note, however, that the maximum allowed in Single Mode is limited to the
sum of normal recording and event recording.
1) Event Channel Only
The Event Channel Only mode will allow one channel that detects any of the events
to record at the predefined record rate.
2) All Channels
All Channels mode allows the DVR to record any channel with event with up to 30
pictures per second regardless of the resolution, then divides the remaining record
rate among the rest of the channels.
Please refer to the following sample scenarios for a better understanding of the
SINGLE MODE event recording.
- SCENARIO 1 – Event Channel Only Mode at D1 resolution
The owner of a gas station wants to set up the DVR to record at maximum rate on
D1 resolution on channels that detect motion. At the same time, the owner would
like to record continuously at one picture per second.
Normal record rate is set to 1 PPS, and the
remaining available record rate of 27 PPS is
allocated for each channel for all 16 channels.
CH-SUM indicates the total of the record rate of
the channel that would start recording at 27 PPS
plus the sum of the record rate of remaining
channels within the group of 3 PPS, hence the
total of 30 PPS, the maximum allowed record rate
for D1 resolution.
When the REC button is on, this setup continuously takes one picture per second
until a movement is detected, where the record rate will jump to 27 PPS for the
channel that triggered the event.
95
SAGA “XL” Series
Please note that the total of the Single Mode event recording rate of 432 PPS
exceeds the maximum D1 resolution record rate of 120 PPS, but in reality, a total of
30 PPS is used per group at any given moment.
- SCENARIO 2 – Event Channel Only Mode at Half D1 resolution
A convenient store owner wants to record only when there’s an event at Half D1
resolution at 30 PPS only on the channels that trigger alarm events.
Normal record rate is set to 10 PPS per channel,
thus allowing the event record to be at 30 PPS.
CH-SUM indicates the total of the record rate of
the channel that would start recording at 30 PPS
plus the sum of the record rate of the remaining
channels within the group of 30 PPS, hence the
total of 60 PPS, the maximum allowed record rate
for the Half D1 resolution.
The REC button must be off to begin alarm recording only. This setup disregards
the normal recording settings until an alarm circuit is triggered, where the channel
will start recording at 30 PPS.
The changes in Normal Record’s PPS will affect the PPS transmitted will affect the
PPS transmitted over the network for VT-XL840, but would not affect VT-XL1680 as
it has a separate dedicated network transmission codec. In other words, if the
normal record rate was reduced to 5 PPS on all channels, then the VT-XL840 would
only transmit maximum of 5 PPS per channel over the network.
The total of the Single Mode event recording rate of 480 PPS exceeds the maximum
Half D1 resolution record rate of 240 PPS, but in reality, a total of 60 PPS is used
per group at any given moment.
-SCENARIO 3 – All Channels Mode at D1 resolution
The gas station owner from scenario 1 now wants to record all channels even if one
channel is triggered to record. He still wants the triggered channel to record as
close to real time as possible, and the rest of the channels to record with the
remaining available record rate.
Normal record rate is irrelevant in the calculation
of the total record rate as long as it does not
exceed 30 PPS, the maximum allowed for D1
resolution. The event PPS is calculated
automatically after subtracting PPS for the channel
that records on event.
96
SAGA “XL” Series
The illustration shows that at any given time, a channel would record at 27 PPS
when an alarm circuit is triggered, whereas the rest of the channels within the group
will record at 1 PPS ( (30 – 27) / 3 = 1 PPS). For example, if channel 3 is triggered
to start recording at 27 PPS, channels 1, 2 and 4 start recording at 1 PPS.
Channels 5 through 16 would record at a rate which would automatically divide
available 30 PPS by 4, thus recording either at 7 or 8 PPS.
B. Complex Mode
Complex Mode event recording records exactly at the predetermined record rate for
all channels. The total record rate must be confined within the maximum record rate
allowed for the resolution.
1) Event Channel Only
The event channel records at a predetermined recording speed.
2) All Channels
The event channel records at a predetermined recording speed and triggers the rest
of the channels to record with the remaining record rate, divided equally amongst the
non-event channel.
5. RECORD QUALITY
Select the record quality for normal recording and event recording. Available options
are Low, Fine and Superfine.
6. PRE / POST EVENT RECORD TIME
Select the pre and post event record time. 0 to 5 seconds for pre record time and 0
to 60 for post record time.
7. EVENT OPTION
Select event option for each channel. 0 for on and – for off.
8. GROUP
The group consists of four channels each, for a
total of four groups for VT-XL1680 and two groups
for VT-XL840. Each group can be configured
independently, allowing the DVR to record with
different image sizes.
Group A and D record at the image size of 360 x
240 (CIF), whereas group B records at 720 x 240
(Half D1), and group C at 720 x 480 (D1).
97
SAGA “XL” Series
9. CHANNELS
The channels can be swapped so that any
