Notice about construction of the surveillance system using this unit
• This unit can be controlled by the external devices via RS-232C terminal or LAN terminal. This unit can also be used to
control external devices via external terminal, RS-422/485 terminal, or RS-232C terminal. Owning to these functions,
this unit flexibly applies to the high grade security system, but the whole surveillance system may be affected by the
malfunction of this unit or the external devices depending on the setting contents of this unit, the connection with the
external devices, or combination between this unit and the external devices.
• When configuring a surveillance system using this unit, it is recommended to confirm first that this unit operates

location, Search by Book Mark, and Search by Motion). In
this section, the common search methods, search by time
and date and search by alarm list, are described.
Search by Time and Date
This item is used to search recording picture by specifying
date, hour, minute, second, and camera number. The search
result is displayed in still frame playback. When searching
for 1 camera number, the search result is displayed in the
single screen display. When searching for 2 or more camera
numbers, it is displayed in SPLIT9 screen.

To display the single screen display of the desired camera
number when the search result is displayed in the SPLIT9
screen, press the desired camera number button.
When there is no recording data of the set time, the
picture of the closest time and date for the set camera
number is displayed in still frame.
When the multiple recording data of the same date and
time are existed, execute search by time and date more
than once until the desired picture is searched.
Depending on the recording condition, search by time and
date function may not operate correctly.
When you change the display from single to split or from
split to single during still frame playback, the recording
picture may not be existed at that point or picture may not
be displayed depending on the selected camera number
or timing of displaying the still frame playback picture.

To execute alarm list search while the “Alarm area” and
“LPA area” are set, set the playback area to “Alarm” and
“LPA” respectively.
“Sensor” display indicates the sensor number to which
the alarm signal is input.
When repeat recording setting for normal and alarm areas
are set to “Repeat Off” and there is an alarm recording
(emergency recording) at the end of the HDD, that
recording may not be stored in the alarm list and that item
may be missed.
When the data of the camera number which is not
corresponded to the alarm sensor number is copied to the
external media, the alarm list of that data is not exactly
similar to that of listed in the digital recorder.
When the detection of the motion or the ground of the
ALARM IN terminal occurs numerously at the same time,
not all the start times of the alarm recording may be
registered in the alarm list. In this case, the sensor of the
lowest number is registered in the list.
In the alarm list, items with the ALARM IN terminal
grounded are indicated in orange, items that were
detected with motion are indicated in white, items with
the EMERGENCY terminal grounded are indicated in
magenta, and items that were input with alarm signal via
communication are indicated in green.

To clear the alarm list, erase the HDD data of which the
alarm recording is recorded (System Menu Data Clear).
Beware that executing it erases all the data of the HDD
containing the picture data.
Alarm list search is not performed if there are no index
signals.
When alarm recording (emergency recording) is started
while displaying the <Alarm List>, you must first exit the
<Alarm List> and then display it again. The new item is
added to the list. In this case, you may have to specify the
date and time to be searched again.
For alarm list search of LPA area, the list from the start
point of media is displayed when selecting “To latest,”
and the list from the end point of media is displayed when
selecting “ To oldest.”

overwriting with new data. Note that clearing the data
takes about 30 to 40 minutes. You cannot cancel operation during clearing the data of the DVD.
When copying the data while “Copy Data” is set to “Alarm,”
the unit performs copy operation, however, the data is not
copied if there is no alarm recording data within the specified range of copy. In case of CD/DVD disc, the remaining
capacity becomes low because only the management
information is recorded. It is recommended to carry out
“Calculate” in <Copy Data to Copy 1 Drive> to confirm
whether or not there is alarm recording data in the specified range.
