1.2 Product Description
The DVMRe Triplex is a video multiplexer capable of recording from multiple cameras to one or more
internal hard drives while simultaneously providing playback. Unlike outdated time-lapse VCRs, the
DVMRe Triplex records high-resolution pictures. Digital recording improves playback quality over
VCRs, and eliminates the hassle of cleaning heads, changing tapes or servicing motors. The unit can
also be programmed to record continuously by overwriting the oldest recorded data. Depending on
the setup, the DVMRe Triplex can store from a few hours to more than 3 years of color images.
Programmable search features eliminate time consuming Fast Forwarding or Rewinding of tapes,
searching for critical data. Search for recorded images or events by alarm, time, date, motion, video
loss, camera number and ASCII cash register or ATM text.
Caution! This products primary purpose is to furnish video multiplexing and recording.
Although the unit has alarm handling and motion detection functions, they are considered
secondary features. This unit should not be the only alarm device on site.

Camera Inputs
There are two BNC jacks for each camera. Either
jack can receive a camera signal. The signal is
looped (directly connected to the other jack), making
the camera signal available to other equipment.
Cable: 75-Ohm Coaxial
The camera input connectors are Auto Terminating.
Passive Looping: Yes
Connectors: BNC
Auto Terminating: Yes
This means that the input signal will automatically be terminated with 75-Ohms unless a 2nd cable is
connected to the 2nd BNC connector of the same camera input. Make sure there is 75-Ohm
termination at the end of the video line if the signal is looped through the DVMRe Triplex.
Time base correction is performed during digital capture. As a result, cameras do not require
synchronization.
See section 3.14 for information about disabling unused camera jacks in the menu system.
Composite Monitor Output
When connecting directly from the DVMRe Triplex to
the monitor, select the 75-Ohm impedance setting on
the monitor.
Cable: 75-Ohm Coaxial
Connectors: BNC
If an additional device is connected to the monitor’s looping output, set the termination of the additional
device as 75-Ohm, and set the termination of the monitor as Hi-Z (High Impedance).
Y/C Monitor Output
Y/C video output has a 4-pin mini-DIN style
connector. This style of connection is also referred to
as SVHS and S-Video.
Cable: 75-Ohm Coaxial
Connectors: BNC
Alarm I/O Port
The back panel of the unit is equipped with an Alarm
Port (DB-25 style connector).

NOTE
About Events: An Event is an action that the unit acknowledges by recording at the
Event Record Rate, yet it is not cause for an Alarm. Events may be created two ways,
via RS232 text insertion and Activity detection.
Example of an Event: A camera is pointed at the front door inside the lobby during
business hours. With the Event Camera Settings Type set to Event, the unit does not
record while the doorway is empty. When activity motion detection senses that
someone is entering or leaving the doorway, the unit begins recording at the Event
Record Rate and stops recording when the motion ceases.
RS232 Event: See section 9 for information about generating an Event via RS232, and
optionally inserting ASCII text to mark the Event.
Activity Detection Event: See Setup Parameters in section 3.13 for detailed
information about configuring activity detection as an event in the menu system.
Pre Event Duration: The unit will record up to 5 seconds of data ahead of the event trigger, at the
Event Record Rate. Select from 0 to 5 seconds.
Post Event Duration: The unit will record up to 250 seconds after the completion of the Event, at the
Event Record Rate. Select from 0 to 250 seconds.
Event Associated Cameras: Enter up to three camera numbers to be associated with this event.
q
Main Menu → Record → Timelapse Record Rate
The unit records at the Timelapse Record Rate under normal conditions, when there are no alarms,
events, or activity present. Record rates are measured in both Pictures Per Second (pps) and Seconds
Per Picture (spp).
The maximum record rate per camera is inversely proportional to the number of cameras connected to
the unit. The fewer cameras connected, the higher the maximum record rate for each camera, and vice
versa. The maximum record rate for multiple cameras is 48pps (NTSC)(40pps PAL). The maximum
record rate for a single camera is 30pps (NTSC)(25pps PAL).
The bottom right corner of the menu contains a record duration calculator. The top line indicates the
estimated recording time for the unit in Time-lapse record mode only. The bottom line indicates the
estimated recording time, taking into consideration the amount of time the unit will spend in Activity,
Event, and/or Alarm record mode.

Activity Detection is a simple type of motion detection having only a sensitivity setting and a relay
output. Intrusion Detection is a more sophisticated type of motion detection, with additional features
such as false alarm rejection levels, minimum target size, and an alarm output.
Activity Detection Setup
If Activity is selected in Motion Detection Type field, the following parameters are enabled:
Relay Output: The unit may be configured to activate a relay output when motion detection is
present. Select either 1, 2, 1+2 (both relays), or None.

Intrusion Detection Setup
If Intrusion is selected in Motion Detection Type field, the following parameters are enabled:
Sensitivity: Rotate the Shuttle to change the motion detection sensitivity, 10 being the most
sensitive.
Rejection: Configure the unit’s false alarm rejection feature by selecting Low, Medium, or High.
These settings are based on the number of simultaneously triggered zones and the persistence of
motion in a scene. The Low setting is the most sensitive to motion. The Medium setting will filter out
most false alarm situations due to sudden luminance changes over the whole scene (clouds passing
over). The High setting will filter out sudden luminance changes as well as spurious motion events
that do not persist for a number of frames (a bird flying past the lens).
Target Size: This setting is the minimum number of zones (from the 16 x 16 grid) that must be
activated simultaneously before it is considered to be valid motion.
Link To Alarm: Select the alarm number that you wish to activate when motion detection is activated.

Main Menu → Communications → Ethernet Settings
An ethernet connection can be used to connect to the unit from a
PC for the viewing of live or recorded images. Use this menu to
configure the Ethernet communications settings. Select from the
following:
Ethernet: Select Enable or Disable.
Hostname: The default Hostname is the unit’s serial number
without the dashes. The user should modify only when GnuDIP
is selected in the Name Service field.
DHCP: Select Enable or Disable. Enables dynamic IP addressing.
When DHCP is enabled, the IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway,
and Server fields are dynamically addressed.
Name Service: Select from Disable, WINS or GnuDIP. Enabling
WINS registers the hostname and IP address within the current
Network. This ensures that you can connect to the Triplex by
hostname within the network. See the Note below for information
on configuring Dynamic DDS with GnuDIP.
DDNS Update Interval: Select the Dynamic Domain Name Server
interval. Select from Disable or from 1 to 1440 minutes.
IP Address / Subnet Mask / Gateway: Consult with a qualified Network Administrator or an MIS
professional to configure these settings if DHCP is not enabled.
Primary Name Server / Backup Name Server: The IP addresses of the Primary and Backup Name
Servers. Not required if DHCP is enabled.
Print Server: Enter the Print Servers IP address to enable the Print Image operation (Function and
Zoom).
TCP MTU Size: Select from Standard, 1400, and 1200. The MTU describes the maximum possible TCP
packet size. Standard (1500) is optimal for most ethernet network environments.
HTTP Port : Select the HTTP Port. Select from Port 0 to 65535. Shortcuts are available for port 80
(Camera 1 button) and 8080 (camera 2 button). Consult with a qualified Network Administrator or an MIS
professional to configure these settings.
NOTE
In order to use Dynamic DNS with GnuDIP, the user has to configure following in the menus:
•
Name Service must be set to GnuDIP (Ethernet Setting Menu).
•
Primary Name Server must be set to the IP address of the GnuDIP server (Ethernet
Setting Menu).
•
Hostname must be set to the required hostname format e.g. ge04.companyname.net.
For registration purposes, the string until the first dot is used as hostname (here: ge04),
the remainder is used as domain (here: companyname.net). The hostname is set via
the Ethernet Setting menu and is case sensitive.
•
DDNS update interval must be set to a reasonable value (e.g. 2 minutes).
•
The password for the DDNS server has to be set in the Passwords->DDNS password
menu. The password is 4 digits long (The Enter button can be used for the number 0).
When everything is configured correctly, the DVMRe will send periodically a Dynamic DNS
update message over TCP port 3495 to the Dynamic DNS server telling the server its
hostname. The DVMRe does not include its IP address in the message. Instead the Dynamic
DNS server extracts the IP address of the DVMRe via the Ethernet source IP address. This
guarantees that the correct IP address is used even when the DVMRe is behind a NAT router.

5.5 Retail Search
The local retail search feature is provided for customers who wish to search video for specific products
from the front panel of the DVMRe. The customer can select from predefined product names from
predefined categories. To use this feature you must create a text file containing the categories (product
types) and product names (sub levels) that you want to search. This file is then uploaded to the DVMRe
via the web interface.
Text File Format
To create a retail search text file open Notepad or any other simple text editor. The file must be saved as
a text only file. The meta-character # is used in this text file to identify a category. All strings below a
category are interpreted as sub levels of that category until another category appears. The creator of the
retail text file is responsible to put the categories and sub levels into correct order. The DVMRe will not
sort the strings. A category has to have at least one sub level. The customer has to store this file as a .txt
file named retail_search.txt.
Example:
#Ice_Cream
Vanilla
Chocolate_Chip
#Soda
Vanilla
Root_Beer
Orange
#Beer
Draft
Light
Extra_Light
filename: retail_search.txt
Uploading/Downloading the retail_search .txt File
The retail search text file can be uploaded to the DVMRe unit via the Web interface. The index.ssi page
will contain a link to the retail search page. Open the embedded web browser by typing the DVMRe’s IP

DVMRe Triplex
6.2 DVMRe Triplex WaveLink
A new feature with Triplex software version 5.00 is the DVMRe Triplex WaveLink. This feature allows
putting command codes in the URL when calling WaveBrowser to control actions the WaveBrowser is
going to perform.
This feature can be used by Web Developers to link various cameras to specific Web content. It will
also be used by the DVMRe Email feature to allow the recipient of an alarm email to click on a link in
the email, which causes the WaveBrowser to connect and play back at the time when the alarm
occurred.
Functionality
The traditional WaveBrowser URL is http://<IP_Address>/wrcontrollite.ssi. This URL will start the
WaveBrowser in the disconnected state. Triplex software version 5.00 supports command codes
placed after an underscore after wrcontrollite and before .ssi. In the following example, the options
are in bold.
Example: http://3.18.172.230/wrcontrollite_c=1s=2a=3t=1361959858.ssi.
The following table specifies the supported options:
Name
Code
Description
Example
Camera
c=<n>
Describes either the camera number for
fullscreen (1=Camera 1, …16=Camera
16) or the type of the multiscreen display
(100 = Multiscreen 16 large, 101=
Multiscreen 16 small, 102= Quad
screen)
c=10
Size
s=<n>
For fullscreen camera, describes the
size of the display (1=large, 2 =medium,
3= small)
s=2
Action
a=<n>
Describes the action the WaveBrowser
has to take:
a=2
0 No action
1 Normal Connection Play
2 Normal Connection Live
3 Normal Connection Goto
4 Live Connection
Time
NOTE
0150-0193G
t=<n>
When action is set to 3 (Goto), the time
specifies where to go in number of
seconds since 01/01/1960.
t=1361959858
Please Note: When an option is not specified, it will be set to 0.
When a normal connection is requested, but the DVMRe unit is already connected via a
normal connection, the WaveBrowser should open a live connection instead.
81
DVMRe Triplex
The default page, http://3.18.172.230, does not accept option codes and will open the WaveBrowser in
disconnected state.
The example URL from above (http://3.18.172.230/wrcontrollite_c=1s=2a=3t=1361959858.ssi)
requests the WaveBrowser to make a normal connection, play back at 2/27/2003 10:53:32
displaying camera 1 in medium size.
Email Links
The DVMRe Triplex is able to send emails when certain events occur (like videoloss, alarms, etc.).
When in record mode, the Triplex software version 5.00 will add a WaveBrowser link in the email
notification. It will only add a link in the email if Notify Alarm is set to enable and the link will only
pertain to the Alarm start.
Clicking this link initiates WaveBrowser to be started, make a normal connection and play back the
specific camera with a medium size video window at the time the alarm occurred.

RS232 Alarm/Event Generation/Text Insertion
Protocol
The RS232 Alarm/Event Generation /Text Insertion Protocol is designed to deliver Alarm, Event
(commands), and Text data to the DVMRe from serial interface devices through the RS232 port.
NOTE
Setting and Clearing Alarms with this Protocol is equivalent to activating and deactivating
Alarms on the hardware alarm inputs.
8.1 Message Structure
The Delimiter byte signals the start of a new message, and has a value of 0xFF.
Delimiter
The Class and Command fields identify the type of message.
Class
The Data Length is a 16-bit value indicating the number of bytes in the Data portion of
the message. Data Length is sent using Intel byte ordering (Little Endian).
Command
Data Length
The Check Sum byte is the result of XORing all the bytes in the message.
Data
Check Sum
8.2 Message Type
One message is currently supported to store text along with recorded video.
0xFF
CMD_NEW_ADD_TEXT
0x14
Class byte is 0x14.
0x40
Command byte is 0x40.
Data Length[0]
Data Length is the number of data bytes in the message (from 2 to 502).
Data Length[1]
Camera byte indicates the camera associated with the alarm, event, or text. The
valid range is from 0 to 15.
Camera
Alarm/Event byte usage is described in the following section.
String fields contain text characters. The string length can be from 0 to 500
characters in length. The String field is not required. If text data is available, it will be

8.4 Alarm Actions
No Alarm Change – 0000 00XXb
If both the start and stop bits are clear, the alarm status and camera record rates will remain
unchanged.
Start Alarm – 0000 01XXb
If only the start bit is set, the DVMRe will enter the Alarm mode. The selected camera will become the
alarm camera. Pre-alarm video will be recorded and the Alarm Record Rate will be initiated.
NOTE
Every Start Alarm command should subsequently be followed with a Stop Alarm command
at some point. Failure to do so will render that alarm input useless, even if the alarm was
latched and gets acknowledged from the front panel. A Stop Alarm followed by a Start Alarm
will have to be sent to create a new alarm on that channel.
Stop Alarm – 0000 10XXb
If only the stop bit is set, the selected camera’s alarm status will be cleared. If no other alarms are
present, the DVMRe will exit the alarm mode.
Momentary Alarm – 0000 11XXb
If both the start and stop bits are set, a momentary alarm will be initiated on the selected camera. Prealarm video will be recorded at the alarm record rate, after which the DVMRe will continue to record
video at the normal record rate.
0150-0193G
86
DVMRe Triplex
8.5 Event Actions
NOTE
All Event messages will be ignored while an Alarm condition exists in the DVMRe.
No Event Change – 0000 0000b
If both the start and stop bits are clear, there will be no change to the event status. The camera’s
record rate will not be changed.
Start Event – 0000 0001b
If only the start bit is set, an event will be initiated on the selected camera. This will cause the selected
camera, as well as any pre-event video to be recorded at the Event Record Rate.
Stop Event – 0000 0010b
If only the stop bit is set, the current event on the selected camera will be terminated. This will start
the post-event timer after which, the selected camera will resume recording at the normal record rate.
Momentary Event – 0000 0011b
If both the start and stop bits are set, a momentary event will be initiated on the selected camera. Preevent video will be recorded at the event record rate for the selected camera. The post-event timer will
continue recording at the event record rate, after which the selected camera will resume recording at
the normal record rate.

Read data from DVMRe Triplex
Configuration and status data can be read from
the DVMRe Triplex. The data is arranged in the
form of 16 byte blocks, numbered from 1 to 213.
For details about the contents of each block,
contact GE-Interlogix and request the Block
Data Structure for the DVMRe Triplex.
Byte 1: 0xFF
Byte 2: 0xBB
Byte 3: 1
Byte 4: 0xFF
Byte 5: Block Number 1-213 or 255 if all
blocks are requested.
After sending a block or series of blocks, block
number 255 must be updated to signal the end of
the configuration session. All data bytes for block
255 must be set to 0.

The DVMRe Triplex responds to the “Read data”
request by sending all the requested data bytes
consecutively, without any start or stop bytes.
A total of either 16 bytes or 3408 bytes will be
transmitted, depending on whether a single block
or all the blocks were requested.

11 Warranty and Service
11.1 Factory Service
Warning: Do not open the top cover or attempt to service the unit, as this may
expose you to dangerous voltages and other hazards. Programmer maintenance of
this unit is limited to external cleaning and inspection. Refer all servicing to qualified
personnel.
If the unit requires factory service, contact the dealer who supplied the unit to you for the correct
procedures on returning the unit to the factory or the nearest factory service center.
If the dealer is not available, contact the manufacturer of the unit as detailed below and request a
Return Material Authorization number (RMA). The unit’s serial number must be provided before a
RMA number can be issued. Units returned to the factory for service must have freight and insurance
prepaid, and must show the RMA number clearly on all shipping documents. The failure symptoms
must be clearly described by the operator and enclosed with the unit together with a copy of the
original suppliers invoice. Failure to comply with these instructions will delay service of the unit, and
may result in the unit not being accepted by the Repair Center.

11.2 Warranty and Return Information
GE Security warrants all of its equipment for three years from the date of purchase. This warranty covers
any defects in materials and workmanship. Equipment failures that are due to improper installation,
modification, abuse, or acts of nature will not be covered by this warranty. The repair department will
evaluate all equipment returned for repair to determine warranty coverage. The Tech Support Manager
will resolve any questions that may arise during evaluation to make a final determination.
Note: The three-year warranty does not apply to the following products:
®
MobileView and the monitor CRT, which carry a 12-month warranty from the date of purchase.
The warranty specifically covers any defects in material and workmanship and does not cover equipment
that has been abused, damaged, or modified.
For all warranty repairs, GE Security will cover all costs, including parts, labor, and shipping. Repaired
equipment will be returned via the same method of shipment in which it was received. If a customer
requests a faster return shipment, the difference will be charged.
For all non-warranty repairs, the customer will be billed for parts, labor, and shipping. Labor will be
billed in half-hour increments.
Note: Customers requesting an estimate prior to repair will be notified by phone. If they cannot be reached, they will be notified by
fax. If we are unable to reach the contact person for repair authorization after one phone attempt and two fax attempts, the
equipment will be returned without being repaired. We will hold equipment no longer than two weeks.
Advance Replacement Policy
When an advance replacement is required, we will send the customer replacement equipment from our
stock and receive the returned product in exchange. The received equipment will be evaluated and the
repair department will determine whether it is a warranty replacement. If it is non-warranty, see our repair
policy above for details. The following guidelines will be used for all advance replacements:
• Fewer than 45 days from purchase, GE Security will replace the product with new equipment.
• From 45 days to 1 year from purchase, GE Security will replace the product with refurbished
equipment.
• From 1 year to 3 years from purchase, the product must be sent in for repair. Advance
replacements will be sent for a fee of $100.
If you have questions about this policy, please contact the GE Security RMA Department at
800-469-1676.
