Description
These Allegiant video switcher/control systems combine both switching and computer technology to provide powerful performance and unique system features for
the security user. Offering full matrix switching capability, these systems can be
programmed to display the video from any camera on any monitor, either manually
or via independent automatic switching sequences.
The LTC 8600 Series Allegiant system can handle up to 128 cameras and 16 monitors in a full crosspoint configuration. It can also accommodate 512 alarm points,
up to 16 keyboards, a computer system console port, and a logging printer port.
The LTC 8800 Series Allegiant system can handle up to 256 cameras and 64 monitors in a full crosspoint configuration. It can also accommodate 1024 alarm points,
up to 32 keyboards, a computer system console port, and a logging printer port.
These systems can be programmed with up to 60 sequences that can be run independently of each other, in either a forward or reverse direction. Any of the
sequences can utilize the SalvoSwitching capability where any number of system
monitors may be selected to switch as a synchronized group. Using the optional LTC
8059/00 Master Control Software (MCS) package or the LTC 8850/00 Bosch Graphical User Interface (GUI), sequences can be made to activate and deactivate automatically, based upon the time of day and the day of week.
The series supports variable speed control and full programming functions of AutoDome® Series dome cameras. In addition, support for on-site receiver/driver units
provide operators with control of pan, tilt, zoom, multiple pre-positions, four (4)
auxiliaries, autopan, and random scan using conventional camera/lens/housings.
With the addition of an external LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interface unit, an external contact closure or logic level can be used to automatically display any camera. Any monitor or group of monitors can be set to display cameras under alarm conditions. The
base system contains three (3) built-in alarm response modes: basic, auto-build,
and sequence and display. In addition to these three (3) modes, the PC based software packages offer the ability to combine any or all three (3) standard modes.
Alarm video may be selected to reset either manually or automatically. In addition, a
16-character alarm title can be selected to appear instead of the camera title during
alarm conditions.
System operation and programming is accomplished using a full-function, ergonomically designed keyboard. Multiple keyboards may be used in the system. Built-in
operator priority levels and the ability to restrict certain operators from controlling
designated functions provide maximum flexibility.
These systems include a 48-character on-screen display for time-date, camera number, camera ID (16 characters), and monitor (12 characters) or status information. A
user selectable option provides the ability to display a 3rd line of on-screen text.
This 3rd line can be configured to display up to 24 additional camera title characters (40 characters total) or a 12-character monitor title.
The on-screen display is also user selectable to operate in “6-digit Camera ID”
mode. When enabled, 2-digit “site numbers” are displayed in addition to the 4-digit
camera number. The 2-digit site number feature is especially useful when groups of
cameras are located in separate buildings, floors, or other common areas.
When programming camera ID and monitor titles, over 1000 different characters
are available.
Enhanced programming and switching features can be obtained by utilizing a standard Windows® equipped PC and the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or the LTC
8850/00 GUI Software. A user friendly spreadsheet format provides the ability to
enter camera titles, enter operator names, schedule up to 64 timed events, change

system parameters, program camera sequences, install lockouts, and access the
advanced alarm handling screens with speed and efficiency. The programmed information may then be transferred into the Allegiant system, stored on disk, or printed
from a PC.
The LTC 8850/00 Bosch GUI Software is designed around an intuitive graphic-based
interface. This software provides high performance programming, control, and monitoring of all system functions by using on-screen icons to reflect real time status of
the devices controlled by the system.
The LTC 8850/00 GUI Software also provides the ability to monitor system status
events. System alarms, switching functions, sequence events, and keyboard
actions, and video loss information can be viewed in real time on the PC screen and,
if desired, logged to the PC hard drive. The LTC 8850/00 GUI Software can also be
used to enable a special on-screen icon for identifying controllable cameras.
The CPU inside these matrix switchers supports powerful macro capabilities. The
macros can be activated using system keyboards, system time event functions,
alarm activations, and via special function icons in the LTC 8850/00 GUI Software.
These systems can serve as the master switcher in a SatelliteSwitch configuration.
This innovative feature enables a single master Allegiant system to communicate
with remotely located “Satellite” systems. Any Allegiant system model can serve as a
remote Satellite switcher. This powerful feature permits the design of a distributed
matrix video switching system with control at one central location and individual
control at the local sites. The main control site can view/control local cameras plus
cameras located at any of the remotely distributed Satellite sites. The Satellite sites
can view/control only cameras associated with their own site.

7.15 LTC 8780 Series Data Converter Units
The LTC 8780 Series are accessory units that convert the Allegiant system's biphase
control code into RS-232, or converts RS-232 back to biphase code. This provides
the capability of transmitting the control code over conventional RS-232 transmission mediums such as phone modems, fiber optics, microwaves, etc. The unit will
accept the biphase control code generated by an Allegiant main CPU bay, an
LTC 8568/00 Signal Distribution unit, or an output from an LTC 8569, an
LTC 8570, an LTC 8571, or an LTC 8572 Series Code Merger unit.
7.16 LTC 8781 Series Data Converter Units
The LTC 8781 Series are accessory units that decode the Allegiant system's
encoded time/date information generated on the biphase control code line and convert it into an RS-422 GPS format. This time/date information can be used to interface into external time/date inserter products (such as the Kalatel KTS-53-16),
which are designed to be synchronized via a GPS signal.
7.17 LTC 8016/90 Bilinx™ Data Interface Unit
The LTC 8016/90 Allegiant Bilinx Data Interface unit is an accessory used for communicating over-the-coax, with up to 16 Bilinx-capable AutoDome and/or Dinion™
Series cameras. The LTC 8016 provides complete control of pan/tilt/zoom, auxiliaries, and pre-position functions of Bilinx enabled AutoDome Series cameras. In
addition, complete programming of Dinion Series cameras and AutoDomes via their
on-screen menus is supported. Bilinx technology also supports camera-generated
event reporting to the Allegiant. This connection allows remote alarm inputs and
motion event data to be sent by the camera to the Allegiant without the need for
additional wiring between the camera site and the main control location. The LTC
8016 can also be used to transmit Bilinx communications over a number of video
transmission systems. Example devices include fiber optic links and external balun
devices that use CAT5 twisted pair cables for video communication.
7.18 LTC 8785 Series Code Converters
The LTC 8785 Series code converter units are designed for use in older Allegiant
systems that have been upgraded to support 'variable speed' control code protocol.
The LTC 8785 units are used to provide a source of 'fixed speed' control code when
the system is generating the newer 'variable speed' control code preferred by the
AutoDome Series of PTZ cameras. The LTC 8785 would receive the variable speed
control code from the Allegiant via its LTC 8568/00 Signal Distribution unit and convert it into the appropriate fixed speed control code. The 'fixed speed' control code
outputs from the LTC 8785 Series connect to the older TC8561 Series receiver/drivers using the existing field cabling.

7.19 LTC 8782 Series Code Translator Units
The LTC 8782 Series code translators are accessory units that convert biphase code
to other manufacturers’ control codes, or convert other manufacturers’ codes to
biphase. Many of the most popular protocol codes are supported, including Pelco®,
Vicon®, American Dynamics®, Sensormatic®, Kalatel®, Diamond Electronics®, and
Javelin®. Fixed and variable speed codes are supported where applicable.
7.20 LTC 8808/00 Series Video Interconnect Panel
The LTC 8808/00 Series video interconnect panel is an optional accessory item
which provides certain Allegiant system models the ability to loop their video
inputs. This patch panel contains 32 BNC connectors on front for external video
connections, and two 16-contact ribbon connectors on the rear. Two (2) 16-conductor ribbon cables are included for interfacing the patch panel to the video looping
connectors found on the rear panel of the equipment bays. The patch panel is one
standard EIA 19-inch rack unit high, and one unit wide.
7.21 LTC 8059/00 Master Control Software
The Allegiant LTC 8059/00 MCS brings the familiarity of the personal computer to
those who supervise closed circuit television systems. Running on a Windows based
compatible computer, this software is the human interface that makes it quick and
easy to configure an entire Allegiant system.
With the MCS package, users can set and change an Allegiant's system parameters;
program camera sequences; lock cameras, monitors, remotes, and keyboards from
certain users; and perform many other system control features. Users can also view
system activity with real time monitoring of the system status, and if desired, log
this information to a file stored on the hard drive.
7.22 LTC 8850/00 Windows Based Graphical User Interface Software
The LTC 8850/00 GUI Software is a PC-based program designed for complete control and programming of the Allegiant Series of matrix switchers. With a mouse click
on an icon, operators can easily take control of system hardware devices, including
cameras, monitors, and alarms. Jumping from one map to another is easily accomplished using special link icons. System Administrators can easily call-up the
included Allegiant LTC 8059/00 MCS module for entering the Allegiant system's
camera titles, sequences, alarm responses, and many other configuration features.
Communication between the GUI workstations and an Allegiant system can be
made using an RS-232 link, or via a Windows based-PC network.
7.23 SFT-INTSRV Allegiant Integration Software
The SFT-INTSRV software CD contains three (3) distinct software packages that can
be used to integrate external devices with an Allegiant system matrix switcher.
Please refer to the following sections for details:

LTC 8600 | LTC 8800 Series
7.23.1 Integration Server
The Integration Server is a versatile software package used to integrate multiple
systems that are not ordinarily compatible with each other. These systems can
include video switchers, point of sale systems, fire/burglar alarms, access control,
or HVAC systems. Devices can be interfaced using any of the following three (3)
methods: serial RS-232 connection, digital I/O card, or directly to an Allegiant
Switcher via the LTC 8059 MCS program. The Integration Server software is programmed to recognize events as they occur in real time from one or more systems,
based upon one of the three (3) integration methods mentioned above. It then
reacts to those events by sending commands to another system or systems.
7.23.2 Virtual Allegiant Satellite Application Software
The Virtual Allegiant Satellite Application (VASA) is Bosch's strategic product that
allows existing Allegiant customers to transition gradually to pure IP technologies
rather than a total and instantaneous replacement. VASA acts as the integration
bridge between an existing Allegiant and the new digital based CCTV system (the
'satellite') that uses digital video encoders and decoders. With VASA, the new IP
technology is totally transparent to the existing Allegiant users who continue to use
their Intuikey CCTV keyboards for video switching and PTZ control on classic analog
monitors.
VASA supports the Allegiant LTC 8100 through the LTC 8900 Series matrix switchers. In addition to PTZ control, VASA provides auxiliary and preposition control of
the IP-based cameras. VASA improves the ROI on existing capital assets, removes
the need for training, and reduces the risk for adopting new technology by incrementally adding to the system. The integration is seamless and the transition is
designed to be imperceptible.
7.23.3 Allegiant Satellite SDK
The Allegiant Satellite Software Development Kit (SDK) is a fully supported set of
libraries, documentation, and samples targeted at PC-based application software
that is used to control 3rd party CCTV matrix systems or manage IP-based digital
video networks. Since the SDK can be used to create customized solutions for
unique, specific problems, customers looking to integrate an Allegiant matrix system with products offered by other manufacturers is readily accomplished. For the
thousands of existing Allegiant customers, it also provides a bridge to integrate or
expand their systems with IP based products gradually rather than a total and
instantaneous replacement.
When operating in an Allegiant satellite system configuration, an Allegiant master
generates switching and PTZ data that is typically used to control a remote Allegiant
satellite matrix. Using the SDK, the video switching commands and PTZ data from
the master system are converted into an ActiveX interface allowing developers to
easily translate this information into formats used to control other original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) systems. The SDK also supports an ability to translate
repetitive type Allegiant PTZ commands to their indefinite equivalents, resulting in
reduced interface traffic and lower bandwidth demands when controlling IP based
networks.
The level of integration available with the SDK results in a robust interface that provides transparent operation to the existing Allegiant operators. Operators continue
to use their existing CCTV keyboards for selecting video and control of PTZ devices
on the Allegiant monitors. This type of solution improves the return of investment
on existing capital assets, removes the need for training, and reduces the risk for
adopting new technology by incrementally adding to the system.
The SDK is compatible with all models of the Allegiant Series switchers. In addition
to video switching commands and PTZ control, auxiliaries and prepositions are also
supported. The SDK is supplied with five sample applications. Three (3) applications use C++ to demonstrate incorporating the SDK in a console, an ATL, and an
MFC application. In addition, samples using Visual Basic®, and Microsoft's .NET
Framework are included.

The LTC 8506/00 is an RS-232 grade cable with 9-pin D-connectors on each end that
is used to connect an Allegiant's system's console port to a standard PC COM port.
This cable is included in the Allegiant LTC 8059 MCS and the
LTC 8850 Allegiant GUI packages. Length is approximately 3 m (10 ft).
7.25 LTC 8508/01 Ribbon-to-BNC Interface Cable
The LTC 8508/01 is a 1 m (3 ft) video interface cable with a 34-pin ribbon cable on
one end and 16 male BNC connectors on the other end. This cable can be used to
loop up to 16-channels of video signals from digital video recorders such as the
Divar, Dibos, and DesaXL, or other BNC equipped devices to the ribbon cable connectors located on the rear panels of the LTC 8600 and LTC 8800 Series bays.
7.26 Logging Printer
An optional RS-232 serial printer may be connected to these systems to provide a
permanent record of significant system status changes. Time and date is printed for
system events such as alarms, start-up after power failure, sequence loading, operator log-on/log-off to keyboards, and download of information from the optional
MCS. The printer may also be used to obtain hard copies of all system tables and
sequences.
NOTE
The printer port does not provide a standardized pin-out connection. If desired, a
cable can be made up at installation, by following the cable pin-out information provided at the end of this manual.

have no evidence of carrier damage.
CAUTION
CAUTION
NOTE
8.2
Do not apply power to the equipment until instructed to do so.
1.
Remove the front panel of the main CPU bay and the front panels of any supplied expansion bay (LTC 8802 Series) by loosening the four (4) corner fasteners.
2.
Install the power supply in far right position of the main CPU bay insuring
proper alignment and seating of the module into the rear mating connector. Verify that the power supply ON/OFF switch is in the OFF position. Repeat this
procedure for any supplied LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion bay.
3.
Install the four screws and star washers (supplied) on the rear panel of the
bay(s) surrounding the power supply line cord to fasten the power supply
securely in place.
If the allegiant card cage is to be transported, the main power supply should be
removed to prevent possible damage to the bay's internal parts.
4.
If the bay(s) are to be installed into a standard 19-inch EIA rack, remove the
four (4) rubber bumper foot pads found on the bottom of the bay before installing the unit in the rack. Four (4) holes are provided for mounting the bay(s) in
the rack. If any LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion bay is supplied, it should be
located as close as possible to the LTC 8801 Series Main CPU bay to facilitate
cable interconnections.
5.
Install the LTC 8600 Series, the LTC 8800 Series, and the LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion bays so that there is at least 9 cm (3.5 in.) of clearance above
and below the bay. This clearance is necessary to allow for proper cooling of
the system. Failure to provide proper clearance may cause the equipment to
exceed its recommended operating temperature range.
An LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion bay should be located close enough to the
TC8801 so that you can connect the units with the supplied 2 m (6 ft) data interconnect cable
Video Input Modules
Termination switches on the Video Input Modules (VIM) must be set to the correct
position prior to installation. If necessary, see Section 8.6 “Termination Practices,”
on page 31 prior to actually installing the VIM on these systems.
The appropriate number of VIMs should be installed in the main bay starting with
the left most slot. If the LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion Bay is being used, it
should receive the same number of VIMs as the main bay. If less than full capacity is

being used, the modules should be inserted in a left-to-right manner so that the
lower camera numbers are used first.
Figure 5: Typical Video Input Module Insertion
The VIMs are identical and are interchangeable within the designated VIM slots
without having to make any changes to the module.
8.3
Video Output Modules
Counting from left to right beginning with slot 9, install the appropriate number of
Video Output Modules (VOM) into these slots. If fewer than the maximum number
of VOMs are installed, there will be empty slots between the Input and the Output
Modules, so make sure that the VOMs are inserted into the correct slots.
Figure 6: Typical Video Output Module Insertion
If the LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion Bay is being used, it should be loaded
with VIMs in the same fashion. The Main CPU Bay should be FULLY loaded with 8
output modules before putting output modules into the Monitor Expansion Bay.
Remaining output modules are inserted into the Monitor Expansion Bay starting at
slot 9. If fewer than the maximum number of outputs are being used, the Monitor
Expansion Bay may contain fewer Output Modules than the Main CPU Bay.
All VIMs are identical and are interchangeable within the designated VOM slots.
8.4
CPU Module
The slot to the left of the power supply in the main CPU bay is reserved for the system CPU module.
NOTE
The CPU module contains two (2) lithium batteries mounted on the component side
of the printed circuit board. A red rectangular insulating tag may be installed in
between the top of the batteries and the battery holder clip. This tag prevents battery drainage during stocking. Remove tag if so equipped.

Camera and Monitor Video Connections
Refer to “Figure 14:” on page 43 for the next series of steps.
Connect the system cameras to the appropriate video inputs, but as a minimum
connect one known operating camera to video input #1 on the rear of the main CPU
bay. Use only those inputs that correspond to an installed VIM. Special instructions
concerning the LTC 8600 Series or the LTC 8800 Series systems, termination, and
expansion bays are given in the sections below. Also connect desired monitors to
the rear of the main CPU bay, ensuring to connect at least one monitor to video output #1. The video outputs are the left-most column of BNC connectors on the rear
of the bay. Use only those outputs that correspond to an installed Video Output
Module (VOM).
8.5.1
LTC 8600 Series and LTC 8800 Series Video Input Connections
The LTC 8601 Series and the LTC 8801 Series main bays have 96 direct BNC
connectors available for video input. Cameras above 96 require the use of the
LTC 8808/00 Video Interconnect (“Patch”) Panel. Each patch panel provides
32 additional BNC connectors for video input.
Patch panels are connected to the rear of the main bay using the supplied ribbon
cables. Each cable can carry video for up to 16 cameras. Two (2) cables can be
attached to each patch panel to support up to 32 cameras per panel. Each ribbon
cable should be attached to the appropriate “VIDEO” connector on the rear of the
main bay. The ribbon cable connectors contain a small “key” protrusion formed into
one side of the connector to assure proper placement into the mating connectors.
Be careful not to force the cables into the mating connectors backwards. For example, the two (2) ribbon cables from the first patch panel (supporting the 32 cam-

eras, numbers 97 through 128) should be attached to the main bay connectors
labeled “VIDEO 97-112” and “VIDEO 113-128.” Extra connectors are provided on
the main bay for “looping” purposes. If camera inputs are not being looped to other
equipment, only one connector for each range of cameras (e.g., “VIDEO 97-112”)
needs to be connected.
The LTC 8600 Series system is supplied with one LTC 8808/00 (patch panel plus
two (2) TC8809 ribbon cables). This should be installed on the rear of the racking
equipment to permit immediate or future connections of camera inputs 97 through
128.
A LTC 8808/00 Patch Panel must be ordered separately for each group of 32 cameras above 96 that will be connected to an LTC 8800 Series system.
Figure 8: Typical Use of LTC 8808/00 Video Interconnect Panel
Install any supplied LTC 8808/00 Patch Panel on the rear of the racking equipment.
Note that additional VIMs ordered in the future may also require the use of
LTC 8808/00 Patch Panels. It is recommended to order the appropriate quantities at
the time the VIMs are ordered.
8.6
Termination Practices
Video from every video input signal must be “terminated” with a 75 ohm resistance.
Each video line should be terminated exactly once. If video from a given camera is
going to several different devices, only the last piece of equipment on the video line
should be terminated. See the section below for special termination instructions
when using a monitor expansion bay. The following sections detail the ways that
various Allegiant systems terminate video inputs.
F.01U.127.393 | 2.0 | 2009.03
Instruction Manual
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
32 | en
8.6.1
LTC 8600 | LTC 8800 Series
LTC 8600 Series or LTC 8800 Series Video Input Terminations
Each VIM card for an LTC 8600 Series or an LTC 8800 Series system has DIP
switches for selecting the termination of each individual video line. To terminate an
input line, make sure that the appropriate DIP switch on the VIM card is ON. If nonterminated operation is required for looping purposes, turn the switch OFF (Switch
1 corresponds to the first video input channel of the card).
If looping video inputs are desired, the LTC 8600 Series and the LTC 8800 Series
systems may utilize the LTC 8808/00 Video Interconnect Panel. Both bays provide
video looping connections which interface to the LTC 8808/00 using coax type ribbon cables supplied with the patch panel. Each LTC 8808/00 provides looping capability for up to 32 video inputs.
8.6.2
LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion Bay Video Input Connections
If an LTC 8802 Series monitor expansion bay is supplied, each video input signal
that is connected to the LTC 8801 Series main CPU bay must also be connected to
the same numbered input on the monitor expansion bay.
With the LTC 8802 Series monitor expansion bay, ribbon cable connectors are provided for the video inputs. Video is to be looped from the main bay into the expansion bay through 16 LTC 8809/00 ribbon cables. Connect all LTC 8809/00 ribbon
cables from the appropriate “VIDEO” ribbon cable connector on the main bay to the
corresponding “VIDEO” ribbon cable connector on the monitor expansion bay. The
ribbon cable connectors contain a small “key” protrusion formed into one side of
the connector to assure proper placement into the mating connectors. Be careful
not to force the cables into the mating connectors backwards.
IMPORTANT
The Termination DIP switches on the VIM cards installed in the main bay must be
turned OFF. This will make the main bay inputs non-terminated, and the expansion
bay will provide the termination for the video inputs.

LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion Bay Data Connections
The LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion Bay is supplied with a 1 m (3 ft) data communication interconnect cable. Install this cable between the Comm1 port on the
LTC 8801 Series Main CPU bay, and the Comm1 port on the LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion Bay.
8.6.4
Monitor Output Video Connections
Just like camera inputs, monitor outputs on the Allegiant system are designed to be
terminated. Each monitor output expects to be connected to a 75 ohm load. This is
the regular load typically provided by a normal monitor. If a monitor output line is
“looped” through several monitors or other equipment, the system installer should
make sure that only the last unit on the line is terminated.

Figure 10: Satellite Concept Configuration
10.1 Satellite Site “Trunk Line” Monitor Outputs
At each of the remote satellite sites, a desired number of monitor outputs from the
switcher must be assigned as trunk lines. The number of trunk lines can range from
1 to the maximum number of monitor outputs provided by the switcher. Note that
the number of trunk lines coming from a satellite site determines the maximum
number of cameras from that site which may be viewed simultaneously at the main
site. If operators will be stationed at the satellite site, they should be prevented
from accessing the monitor outputs designated as trunk lines. This prevention can
be accomplished via the Monitor Lockout Tables in either the LTC 8059/00 MCS or
the LTC 8850/00 GUI Software (see below).

en | 37
10.2 Main Site “Trunk Line” Video Inputs
At the main site, video trunk line connections coming from each of the remote
site(s) should be connected (and properly terminated) using an available video
input at the main bay. There are no programming restrictions concerning their connections, but a sense of order can be maintained if a group of video inputs are used
at the upper end of the system’s designed capacity. This technique allows the main
system to be more easily expanded in the future with additional local cameras or
trunk lines. As an example, assume there are a total of eight (8) trunk lines coming
from all satellite sites which are connected to a main site system designed for 32
inputs. Inputs 25 to 32 can be reserved for the trunk lines, leaving inputs 1 to 24 for
local camera connections. If there will be no local camera inputs, the trunk lines can
start at the first video input.
10.3 Control Data Lines in Satellite Systems
Each satellite site must be provided with an Allegiant biphase control data line coming from the Signal Distribution located at the main site. This data line carries all
pan/tilt/zoom control commands, in addition to the switching commands generated
by the main site switcher. The control data line should be connected to a LTC 8780
Series Data Converter unit, which provides address decoding functions for the satellite site. An LTC 8780 Series is required for each satellite site, and must be given a
unique site address number. If operators stationed at the satellite site are permitted
to control pan/tilt/zoom-equipped cameras, an LTC 8569 Series Code Merger unit
must be installed at the satellite site. In order for each site to have control over pan/
tilt/zoom-equipped cameras, the Code Merger combines code generated by the
main and satellite sites. The LTC 8780 Series can then be connected to one of the
data outputs of the LTC 8569 Series unit.
10.4 Satellite Site Programming Requirements
The optional LTC 8059/00 MCS or the optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software is
required to properly program a satellite system.
Programming the satellite sites is usually limited to designating their logical camera
numbers to appropriate values via the Camera ID Table of the MCS or GUI Software.
Note that no duplicate logical camera numbers are permitted anywhere in the system. Allegiant logical camera designations can be renumbered to any four-digit number on all Allegiant Series systems, except the LTC 8500 Series, which is limited to
three (3) digits. Few other restrictions exist. These camera numbers are the numbers entered at both the satellite and the main site keyboards when camera selections are made. On any AutoDome Series camera or conventional pan/tilt/zoomequipped camera, this logical number must also be entered as the receiver/driver's
site address number.

Instruction Manual
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.

LTC 8600 | LTC 8800 Series
Figure 11: Satellite Site Sample Program Showing Logical Camera Numbers and Titles
To maintain a sense of order, it is preferable to program a satellite for a range of
camera numbers. For example, in a three (3) Allegiant type satellite system, the first
satellite can be programmed for camera numbers 51 to 100. Satellite two can be
programmed for camera numbers 101 to 131, and satellite three can use numbers
151 to 185.
If necessary, the Keyboard-to-Monitor Lockout Table in the LTC 8059/00 MCS or the
LTC 8850/00 GUI Software can be programmed in the satellite switcher to prevent
any local operators from inadvertently accessing the satellite's monitor outputs
being used as trunk lines.
If operators will be stationed at the satellite site, camera titles should be entered
into the switcher. If desired, these titles can be selected (explained below) to
appear at the main site.
The only other requirement is to ensure that the console ports of all Allegiant type
satellites have been set to the correct baud rate and the handshake option disabled
(CTS = off). This is done via a system keyboard (see Keyboard User Function 30),
the Parameters-System screen of the LTC 8059/00 MCS or the LTC 8850/00 GUI
Software (make sure CPU DIP Switch S2 is set to the ON position).
10.5 Main Site Programming Requirements
At the main site, the Camera ID Table must be programmed to ensure proper satellite operation. It is easiest to start with the trunk line inputs. For each trunk line, the
satellite's monitor output number and its bay address must be entered (same number as the satellite's LTC 8780 address).
Camera numbers should be programmed next. No duplicate logical camera numbers
are allowed anywhere in the entire system. If the system will include many local
cameras, it is recommended to designate remote cameras (i.e., those located at satellite sites) using numbers above the main bay's physical video inputs (9+ on
LTC 8100 Series, 17+ on LTC 8200 Series, 33+ on LTC 8300 Series, 65+ on
LTC 8500, 129+ on LTC 8600, 257+ on LTC 8800 Series, 4097+ on LTC 8900 Series).
Enter the desired camera number, (the satellite bay that it is actually connected to),
and select if either a local title will be used, or if the remotely generated title will be
used.
For satellite camera entries, only those numbers representing actual cameras need
to be entered. For example, all 16 cameras associated with a LTC 8200 switcher do
not need to be entered if only five cameras are actually connected to the switcher. If
desired, a few extra camera number lines in the table may be reserved at this time
for future expansion. If a local title is specified, the camera's title can also be
entered at this time. Designate any local camera numbers appropriately, and enter
their corresponding titles.

Figure 12: Main Site Sample Program Showing Local Cameras, Trunk Lines and Remote Cameras
NOTE
Either a local camera, or a remote camera programmed with a local title, will need
to be selected to view certain on-screen prompts or data during programming of the
main site via a system keyboard.
Once the system is programmed and configured, any unused monitor outputs
located at the main site should be selected to display a local camera via the system
keyboard. This prevents unused monitor outputs from using up trunk lines which
may result in some confusing operational responses.
The “Start-up” camera numbers listed in the Monitor Table of the LTC 8059/00 software should be programmed to specify locally connected cameras or a local unused
input (i.e., the raster generator will be displayed when called up). This table defines
the camera numbers that will automatically be switched to an operator's monitor in
the event the trunk line being used to display their original satellite camera is 'stolen' by an operator with a higher priority.

10.6 Special Programming for “Cascaded” Satellite System
Configurations
In a 3-tier cascaded satellite system, it is highly recommended for the system design
to have more trunks lines between the intermediate master/satellite system and the
3rd level satellite system than there are between the top level master system and
the intermediate system. In systems where this is not the case, it is likely that operators at top level master and the intermediate master/satellite will end up fighting
for trunk lines coming from the 3rd level satellite system.
There are two user configuration options available (starting in CPU firmware version
8.70) to eliminate or at least significantly reduce conflicts between operators when
this type of system is being used.
Option 1: Using Factory default settings, previously selected satellite cameras
remain on trunk lines even after the operator switches back to a local camera view.
Although this mode of operation is more desirable in standard systems because it
minimizes delays when previous satellite cameras are reselected, it is not advantageous to use in cascaded systems. In cascaded systems, all available trunk lines
coming from the 3rd level satellite system may become used up, making them
unavailable to the operators at the intermediate system.
In this situation, keyboard User Function 41 should be set to the NO REM CAM
CACHE option at the master site location. In this mode, after the top level operator
selects a locally connected camera, the trunk line between the top level and the
intermediate level system will immediately be reset to its Start-up camera (as
defined in the Monitor Table of the LTC 8059/00 MCS). This action frees the trunk
line between the intermediate level system and the 3rd level system so it will be
available if needed by an operator at the intermediate level system.
For the monitors being used as trunk lines in the intermediate system, it is
important for the “Start-up” camera numbers listed in the Monitor Table of the
LTC 8059/00 software to be programmed to specify cameras connected locally or a
local unused input (i.e., the raster generator will be displayed when called up). This
action ensures that no trunk line is used when a monitor switches to the Start-up
camera.
Option 2: If the top level master system and intermediate level system in a cascade
configuration can or will be set to operate as “Dual Master” systems, a priority
based satellite camera feature can be configured.
In default cascaded satellite system configurations, satellite switching commands
are not associated with a user priority level. When a switching command sent from
a master site is received by a satellite, the switch selection can immediately be overridden by operators at the satellite location who have any priority level. This situation is more likely to be encountered in 3-tier Satellite systems that do not have a
good distribution of trunk lines (i.e., more between the top level system and the
intermediate level system than there are between the intermediate system and the
3rd tier satellite).
Since dual master configurations support bi-directional communications, it is possible to set keyboard User Function 41 to use the SAT nnn PRIORITY option for both
the top level and intermediate level master systems. The satellite number assigned
to the system that is currently being programmed must be specified here. This feature will enable use of the operator’s user priority to determine if access to a
desired satellite camera is provided or not. For instance, if no trunk lines are available and an operator requesting a satellite camera has a higher priority than at least
1 of the existing operators, the requested camera will be switched. If the operator
does not have sufficient priority, they will receive an error message (i.e., error 81)
via the satellite communication path, and their camera will switch to the Start-up
camera specified in the Monitor Table.

10.7 Alarm Inputs in Satellite Systems
Any alarm inputs to the main site, which have been programmed to activate cameras
located at satellites, will operate normally except when limited by the number of
trunk lines available. The software automatically determines trunk usage depending
on the priority level of operators currently viewing satellite cameras. Alarm inputs
applied at a satellite site will not activate the alarm video at the main site. If the
application requires alarms located at a satellite to activate video at the main site,
the remote alarms must be brought back to the main site. If necessary, the main
site's LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interface unit can be remotely located via an RS-232 link.
Since the Alarm Interface capability is an integral part of the LTC 8100, LTC 8200,
and LTC 8300 Series, this is not possible if an LTC 8100, LTC 8200, or LTC 8300
Series system is being used as the main site system. If more than one satellite site
contains alarms, multiple LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interfaces can be remotely located.
The number of alarm interfaces which can be remoted is limited only by the capacity of the main site system to support this capability.

1.
NOTE
The system may require several seconds to fully initialize after a power-up reset.
Up to one (1) minute may be required before a LTC 8802 Series Monitor Expansion bay fully initializes. This time can vary based on the activity and general
size of the system.
2.
NOTE
Attach the supplied AC power cord(s) between the bay(s) and appropriate AC
power source. Verify that power supply is configured for desired voltage input.
If necessary, instructions for changing the input voltage selection can be found
in the Maintenance section of this manual (See Chapter 19, “Maintenance Information,” on page 83) Switch power ON to the bay(s). In multibay systems, the
bays can be powered up in any order.
Verify that the LEDs associated with the fuses are lit on all of the applicable
power supplies.
Upon power-up, the system monitors may momentarily display video output module
software version information.
Installations having cameras powered from an AC phase different than that of
the Allegiant system may utilize the built in EXTERNAL SYNC input or vertical
PHASE ADJUST.
NOTE
All cameras should be phased properly with each other before the EXTERNAL SYNC
or PHASE ADJUST feature is implemented.
The EXTERNAL SYNC input will accept composite video, composite sync, or output from a Master Sync generator. Any one of the phased cameras may be used
as a master sync source to the system using the EXTERNAL SYNC input. To
implement this feature, simply connect the incoming video source (using a BNC
“T” connector) to both the appropriate camera BNC input and the EXTERNAL
SYNC input which is found on the rear of the Allegiant CPU bay. The front panel
illuminates the EXT SYNC LED. Alternatively, the PHASE ADJ on the front panel
of the power supply may be adjusted until the vertical interval switching is
achieved. The PHASE ADJUST has a range of about
130 degrees.
3.
Reattach the front panel(s) to the bay(s).

13.2 Monitor Title/System Status Display
The monitor title/system status display area is a 12-column display to the right of
the camera number. It is unique on each of the monitors. It has different uses, some
of which may be selected by the user at a keyboard location. The various uses are
described below.
13.2.1 System Status Display
If this display is selected (factory default), it allows the Allegiant system to dynamically inform the user of the system status. The 12-column display is divided into
smaller message columns (see figure below), in which special characters inform the
user of the following:
•
if the switcher is running or stopped
•
the switcher’s direction
•
if a monitor or remote camera is locked
•
the alarm status of the camera and monitor.
13.2.2 Locations 1, 2, and 3 - Alarm Indication
When the monitor overlay is in the status display mode, locations 1 through 3 indicate if a camera on the monitor is in the alarm mode. If the on-screen camera is currently in alarm mode, an ALM message will flash in a box at this location mode. If no
cameras are currently in alarm mode on this monitor, these spaces are blank. Note
that when a monitor has cameras in alarm mode, pressing [NEXT], [RUN], or [PREVIOUS] on the keyboard will move you through the alarm sequencer rather than the
regular camera sequencer. The alarm switcher status will be displayed in location 6
using described symbols.
13.2.3 Location 4 - Monitor Arm Status Indication
In the MONITOR ARMED location, the characters SM or DM will appear if the monitor is armed for alarm. SM means that the monitor is a “step” or “sequence” monitor, and will automatically step through multiple alarm videos. DM indicates that the
monitor is a “display” or “review” monitor, which will collect alarm videos from one
or more step monitors.
When an alarm occurs, the alarmed camera's video will replace the current display
of the monitor. If the monitor is not armed, this location will be blank.
13.2.4 Location 5 - Camera Arm Status Indication
In the CAMERA ARMED location characters CA are displayed if the camera being
viewed is armed for alarm on that monitor. If the alarm signal associated with this
camera becomes active, the camera will be displayed on the appropriate armed
monitors.
13.2.5 Location 6 - Error Indication
This location is used to indicate an error on the part of the user. When a user error
occurs, this location will display an ERR symbol. The specific error number will
appear in locations 7 and 8. The error number will also appear in the Camera Number Display field on the keyboard. The display will return to normal after a few seconds have passed, or if the user presses [Enter] on the keyboard.

Location 6 is also used to indicate the sequencing direction when alarms occur. One
of four of the following character combinations will be displayed:
a.
^
R
indicates the alarms are sequencing in a forward direction.
b.
R
V
indicates the alarms are sequencing in a reverse direction.
c.
^
S
indicates the sequencing of alarms has stopped, but if started again
would sequence in a forward direction.
d.

V
indicates the sequencing of alarms has stopped, but if started again
would sequence in a reverse direction.
Location 6 can also be used to display a symbol to indicate pan/tilt/zoom equipped
cameras. Using the keyboard (see User Function 35), or the optional LTC 8059/00
MCS, controllable cameras can be individually selected to display a “” symbol in
location 6 whenever they are viewed on a system monitor.
13.2.6 Location 7 - Remote Lock Indication
This location will display characters RL to indicate that control over the movements
of the camera being viewed have been “locked” by a user. Control over this camera
is now possible only by the user who locked the camera or by a user with higher priority. If the camera is not locked, the icon will not be displayed. If a user error has
occurred, this location will temporarily hold part of the error number.
13.2.7 Location 8 - Monitor Lock Indication
This location will display characters ML to indicate that the monitor has been
“locked” by a user. The camera currently being viewed can not be changed except
by the user who locked the monitor or one with higher priority. If the monitor is not
locked, the icon will not be displayed. If a user error has occurred, this location will
temporarily hold part of the error number.
13.2.8 Location 9 - Sequence Type Indication
This location is used to display the type of sequence currently “loaded” on the monitor. An “absolute sequence” is indicated by the characters AS which means that the
monitors programmed in the sequence program refer to the exact monitor(s) from
which the sequence may be run. Sequences created using the system keyboards are
always of this type, so absolute sequences are the only type possible in a base system. Sequences designated as “relative sequences” are designated by the characters RS in this location. These sequences run on any monitor or group of monitors
and can be programmed only using the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or the
optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package with a personal computer.
13.2.9 Locations 10 and 11 - Sequence Number
The sequence number currently active for the monitor is displayed in these two
locations. This number is between 1 and 60, or 00 to indicate that no sequence is
loaded.

13.4 Broadcast Message
The operator of the personal computer can send a message using the optional LTC
8059/00 MCS package or the optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package to all the
monitors in the system. This message may be up to 24 characters long, and can be
used to notify all users at all monitor locations of important information. The message, along with its beginning and ending time and date, is also printed out on the
logging printer, if one is connected; and any acknowledgment from users is also
recorded. The broadcast duration may be set for 1 to 60 seconds. The message is
displayed on a line by itself.
13.5 Program Prompts
During entry of sequence programming using the keyboard, the Allegiant system
prompts the user on the monitor his keyboard is currently “controlling”. The display
will return to its previous form when the user leaves the programming mode.

13.6 Camera Number
The left-most display on the top line shows the camera number. This number is generated by the system and is always displayed. Each number is unique and identifies
this camera when using the keyboard for video call-ups.
In base systems, this number is the same as the numbered BNC connector that the
camera is plugged into on the rear of the bay (physical camera number). However,
the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or the optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software
package can be used to change this number to any unique number between 1 and
9999.
The option to display a 2-digit site number above the 4-digit camera number is userselectable. This “6-digit Camera ID” mode is especially useful when groups of cameras are located in separate buildings, floors, or other common areas.
13.7 Camera Title
The camera identification display is the first 16 characters of the lower line. These
16 characters label each camera. Each camera has its own title, which is displayed
whenever that camera is called-up for viewing. The characters can be entered from
the keyboard (see User Function 9) or may be entered from the personal computer
keyboard using the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or the optional LTC 8850/00
GUI Software package. A user selectable option provides the ability to display a 3rd
line of on-screen text. This third line can be configured to display up to 24 additional
camera title characters (40 characters total) or a 12-character monitor title. There
are over 4000 different characters that can be displayed. See Chapter 20, “Character ROM Tables for LTC 8600 and LTC 8800,” on page 86.
13.8 Video Loss Detection
The Allegiant system is capable of detecting loss of video. When the unit detects
lost video, the respective monitor display a VIDEO NOT PRESENT message.
NOTE
It may take up to five (5) seconds for the unit to display the video loss message
when a video source is disconnected.

14 Factory Default Settings
As the Allegiant system is shipped from the factory, certain features are placed in a
default configuration. The installer can select some of these features at the time of
system installation/configuration. Generally the default configuration represents the
simplest mode of operation, allowing the user to become familiar with the system
before any advanced features are selected. The default settings are described in the
sections below.
14.1 User Selectable DIP Switch Settings for Main CPU Bay
NOTE
After changing any of the following switches, the system must either be powered
OFF and ON or reset using the keyboard (see user function 15).
14.1.1 Upper CPU DIP Switch S1
System CPU modules contain three (3) 8-position DIP switches. The settings of the
upper DIP switch do not need to be changed from their factory default positions
except when using a Console Port Expander accessory unit or if a problem is
encountered when downloading new firmware into the CPU. For reference, the
functions are as follows:

Switch 3 of S1
This switch should be set to ON if an LTC 8712 Series Console Port Expander is
connected to the Allegiant’s console port. This selection can also be set using
either the MCS or the PC-based GUI Software package.
•
Switch 4 of S1
Use this switch to set the communication baud rate that the Allegiant will use
when connected to a LTC 8712 Series Console Port Expander. It is only applicable when DIP switch 3 is in the ON position. When set to ON, the baud rate will
be 57,600 bps (recommended setting). When OFF, the baud rate follows the
setting determined via DIP switch 8 of the lower CPU DIP switch. If switch 8 of
the lower DIP switch is OFF, the baud rate defaults to 19,200 bps. If switch 8 of
the lower DIP switch is ON, the user programmed baud setting is used, but the
user setting must be 19,200 baud or higher in order to operate.
•
Switch 5 of S1
In the ON position, this switch is used to force the CPU into a “boot” mode so it
is ready to accept a download of an operating system program via its console
port. This setting should not be changed unless a problem has been encountered while attempting to download a new operating system program. When
this mode is enabled, the baud rate is fixed to 115200 and hardware handshake
is ON.
•
Switch 6, 7, and 8 of S1
These switches do not currently provide user selectable options and should be
left OFF.

Switch 1 of S2
This switch is not used in these systems and should be left OFF.
•
Switch 2 of S2
If switch 2 is turned ON, the alarm port on the rear of the main Allegiant bay is
configured as an auxiliary console port. This auxiliary port allows the alarm port
(in addition to the regular console port) to communicate with the optional LTC
8059/00 MCS package or the optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package.
The port can also be used to control the Allegiant system via the Console Command Language (documented in the optional CCL manual). The normal console
port and the alarm port (when switch 2 is on) may be used to control the Allegiant system simultaneously. Communications parameters (baud & handshake)
for the alarm port can be set using the keyboard (see User Function 32), with
the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or with the optional
LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package.
Note that the pin-out of the alarm port differs from that of the console port, so
the cable supplied with the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or with the
optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package can not be used when interfacing
with the alarm port. If necessary, See Chapter Appendix D, “Main Bay Rear
Panel Connector Pin-outs,” on page 117 for the alarm port pin-outs.
•
Switch 3 of S2
This switch setting is ignored if DIP switch 7 (described below) is set to ON.
Current systems utilize a “variable speed” keyboard communication protocol.
Older systems and keyboards were limited to using “fixed speed” keyboard
communication protocols. In addition, there were two types of fixed speed protocols available. By default, newer CPUs are set to operate using “six poll byte”
variable speed mode, but if a newer CPU is installed into an older system, the
existing keyboards would not operate with this format. This option switch is
provided to support backward compatibility with the older style keyboards.
When this switch is set to OFF, the CPU in an LTC 8600 Series system communicates with the system keyboards using a “four poll byte” protocol when this
switch is OFF. When it is on, the keyboard communication uses an “eight poll
byte” protocol. For LTC 8800 Series systems, the settings are reversed: “eight
poll bytes” when OFF, “four poll bytes” when ON.
This option is a global system setting that determines the communication protocol that will be used for all keyboards connected to the system.

Switch 4 of S2
This switch allows the printer port on the rear of the main Allegiant bay to be
configured as an auxiliary console port when it is turned ON. See the description above regarding switch 2 for information on using an auxiliary console port.
The printer port has the same pin-out as the normal console port, so the console cable supplied with the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or with the
optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package may be used to interface with the
printer port when switch 4 is ON. Communication parameters (baud & handshake) for the printer port can be set using a keyboard (see User Function 31),
or with the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or with the optional
LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package.
This feature can also be implemented via the PRT2CON CCL command using an
external PC, dumb terminal or other computing device. Refer to the Allegiant Command Console Language (CCL) manual for complete information about using CCL
commands.
•
Switch 5 of S2
This switch controls the system security modes. When this switch is set to ON,
the system log-in features can be controlled using keyboard User Function 27
and User Function 28 (refer to the section on Keyboard User Functions for complete information). Users with Priority 1 can access keyboard User Function 27
to select if the system keyboard log-in feature is enabled or disabled. When
enabled, the system keyboards require each user to log-in to the system and to
log-off the system. All users are required to enter a user number and the correct
password before the system permits interaction.
Users with Priority 1 can also access User Function 28 to select if the console
port log-in feature is enabled or disabled. When enabled, any external PC or
other computing device is required to log-in to the system and to log-off the system. All users are required to enter a user number and the correct password
before the system permits interaction
If this switch is turned OFF or if the features are disabled using User Functions
27 and 28, the system keyboards and the console port are always online with
the system.
NOTE
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
When changing from the no 'log-on' mode to the 'log-on' mode, all system keyboards
are initially 'logged-off'.

Switch 6 of S2
This switch is currently not used and should be left OFF.
•
Switch 7 of S2
This switch controls the system keyboard polling mode. When switch 7 is ON
(factory default), the CPU communicates with all system keyboards via a “6 poll
byte” communication protocol. This format provides variable speed pan/tilt
control for AutoDome-equipped camera sites. Refer to the information for
Switch 3, above, for more details.
The variable speed mode is not compatible with the pre-1996 TC8561 receiver/drivers without using an LTC 8785 Series code converter unit.
Dip switch 7 can be turned OFF (usually at system installation) to allow operation with the older fixed speed-only type keyboards that are able to communicate only using the older format. In this mode, the system can communicate
with the older TC8561 Series of receiver/drivers without using the LTC 8785
code converter unit. Note that the fixed speed keyboard mode allows access to
only the first 63 auxiliary and pre-position functions. This is not an issue on
older receiver/driver versions, but may pose a problem if the system must be
expected to access all functions available in the AutoDome Series of pan/tilt/
zoom dome cameras or the higher preposition numbers in current versions of
Allegiant receiver/drivers.
•
Switch 8 of S2
This switch controls the protocol settings of the external RS-232 port which
connect to the Console, Printer, and Alarm.
If the switch is turned OFF, the system uses the factory default settings for the
RS-232 data communication protocols as listed below.
With switch 8 ON, any RS-232 port protocols changed using the keyboard (see
User Function 30), the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package, or the optional LTC
8850/00 GUI Software package are active.
Users with Priority Level 1 can also use the keyboard (see User Function 29) to
reset any changed protocols back to the default settings (see below).
Switch 8 also controls the activation of a “boot screen” Command Script program previously downloaded into the CPU's memory. Command Scripts are
user-defined programs designed to provide special system functions or features
at system startup or reset. If the switch setting is OFF, any existing boot screen
function will not be activated.
The default (DIP switch 8 OFF or after activation of Keyboard User Function 29)

15.1 User Priority Levels
There are eight (8) levels of user priority in the Allegiant system. Each of the 32
users in the Allegiant system has a default priority level assignment. These user levels determine access to various system functions and provide a means to prioritize
user control of monitors and pan/tilt/zoom equipped camera sites. Generally, users
with higher priority (highest = 1) can regain control over monitors or pan/tilt/zoom
cameras 'locked' by another user.

16 Alarm Information
16.1 General
The ability to automatically switch video in response to an external signal (usually a
contact closure) is a necessary feature in any video switching system. The Allegiant
system permits users with Priority Level 1 to select any 1 of 3 predefined alarm
response modes (via keyboard User Function 19). A description of these three (3)
modes appears below. Pictorial examples of the three (3) alarm responses are also
shown on the following pages.
The system can also be programmed with a wide variety of alarm response characteristics using the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS package or the optional
LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package.
16.2 Basic Alarm Response Mode
In the Basic alarm response mode, any or all of the monitors can be selected as
alarm display monitors. Each alarm can then be armed to display its camera(s) on
any set of armed monitors. Multiple alarms, on the same monitor, will sequence at a
1 second rate. Note that monitors and alarms can be armed and disarmed individually as required. Alarmed video automatically clears when the alarm input signal is
reset.
16.3 Auto Build Alarm Response Mode
This mode uses a set of monitors as alarm display monitors. All system monitors
may be armed if desired. Each triggered alarm will display its alarm video on a different monitor, starting with the lowest numbered armed monitor. If all the armed
monitors are already displaying alarm video, subsequent alarms will build on the
existing alarmed monitors; and each monitor will sequence through its alarm videos
at a 1 second rate. Note that monitors and alarms can be armed and disarmed individually as required. Alarmed video will automatically clear when the alarm input
signal is reset.
16.4 Sequence and Display Alarm Response Mode
This mode designates two monitors as alarm response monitors. Monitor #1 is the
DISPLAY monitor (also called a REVIEW monitor) and monitor #2 is the SEQUENCE
(or STEP) monitor. The first alarm appears on both monitors and additional alarms
begin to sequence at a 1 second rate on the SEQUENCE monitor. The DISPLAY
monitor holds the first alarmed camera video until manually acknowledged through
the keyboard. When the first video is cleared from the DISPLAY monitor, the next
alarmed video (“next” meaning the camera that enters an alarmed state second) is
displayed until cleared; operation continues in this manner. Note that alarms can be
armed and disarmed individually as required. Note also that all alarms must be manually cleared; the presence of alarm video is not dependent upon the duration of the
alarm input signal to the system.

16.5 Alarm Activated Pre-position
Alarm activated pre-position capability exists in each of the three (3) alarm
response modes. This enables a pan/tilt/zoom equipped camera to automatically
position itself to a preprogrammed scene as a result of an alarm signal. When using
conventional pan/tilt equipped devices and zoom lenses, they must have the necessary options for pre-position control. The system default is to activate pre-position
#16 of the system camera receiving an alarm. Using the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS
package or the optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package, the user can configure
a response to alarms as required.
16.6 Sample Alarm Responses

16.7 Alarm Relay Response
Allegiant alarm responses include the ability to trigger isolated alarm relay outputs
from an LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interface unit. An alarm output is typically used to activate the alarm input of a security Digital Video Recorder (DVR) or other alerting
device. In this type of scenario, a DVR is programmed to change recording speeds
from a slower rate to a faster rate upon alarm activation. Operation of the relay outputs from the LTC 8540 Alarm Interface unit depends on the system configuration
for responding to alarm events. The alarm output relays behave according to the following conditions:
1.
Relay 1 activates if the system uses the Basic alarm response mode and an
alarm occurs on any system monitor. Relay 1 deactivates after all alarms have
been removed from the inputs. Relay 1 also deactivates if the system (monitor
or alarms) is disarmed by an operator via the keyboard. Pressing [Acknowledge]
on the system keyboard does not deactivate Relay 1 since the alarm video follows the contact applied to the unit in this alarm response mode. Other relays
are not used in this mode.
2.
Relay 1 activates if the base system is set to use the Sequence & Display alarm
response mode and an alarm occurs on any system monitor. Relay 1 deactivates
after all alarm videos have been acknowledged (by pressing the [Acknowledge]
key) via system operator(s) from all system monitors. Relay 1 also deactivates if
the system is disarmed (either the monitor or the alarm(s)) by an operator via
the keyboard. Removal of the alarm input does not deactivate Relay 1 since the
alarm video(s) are not dependent on duration of the contact applied to the unit
in this alarm response mode. Other relays are not used in this mode.
3.
If the base system uses the Autobuild alarm response mode and an alarm
occurs on system monitors, the relay corresponding to the monitor number activates for the duration that the corresponding alarm input is applied to the unit.
The relay deactivates if the monitor associated with the relay or if the alarm(s)
being displayed on the monitor is disarmed by an operator via the keyboard.
Pressing [Acknowledge] on the system keyboard does not deactivate the relays
since the alarm video follows the contact applied to the unit in this alarm
response mode.
4.
If the Alarm Group table screen, in the PC- based LTC 8059/00 MCS package or
the LTC 8850/00 GUI Software, contains an alarm group that includes monitors
and the monitor option has been selected in the Relay Action column, the corresponding relay activates for the duration the alarm video remains on the monitor. The relay deactivates if the associated monitor (or the alarm(s) being
displayed on the monitor) is disarmed by an operator via the keyboard. Pressing
[Acknowledge] on the system keyboard does not deactivate the relay unless this
feature has been selected for the associated alarm group. If the Monitor option
has been set to 1 in the group table, only Relay 1 activates when monitors in
that alarm group become alarmed.

17 Keyboard Operation
17.1 General
Primary operation of an Allegiant switcher is controlled via the system keyboard.
The two types of keyboards currently available are:
•
Conventional LTC 8555 Series (incorporates LEDs and pushbuttons).
•
IntuiKey model (uses dynamic LCD menu screens).
General operation steps for both keyboard models follows. Refer to the individual
instruction manuals supplied with the keyboard for additional information.
As the system is supplied from the factory, various user selectable features are set
to a default state. See Chapter 14, “Factory Default Settings,” on page 50 for complete feature descriptions. Since these features are user selectable and can have a
significant effect on the operation of the system, it is important to take note of any
changes that may be in effect.
17.2 System Commands
17.2.1 Keyboard Log-in Procedure
Keyboard modes:
•
Factory default, a keyboard is ready for use as soon as power is applied to the
system.
•
System operator must log-on to a keyboard to access the system. When a system is configured to use the keyboard log-on, operators must be pre-assigned a
user number and password. Up to 32 user numbers are available, each having
default priority level. User specific priority levels can be changed only via the
optional PC-based LTC 8059/00 MCS package or the LTC 8850/00 GUI Software. Refer to the software manual for complete details.
If the log-on feature is enabled and an operator is not logged-in, LED keyboards
show flashing dashes in their display. IntuiKey keyboards prompt for entry of a user
number when attempting to enter the main Allegiant softscreen menu.
Enter your assigned user number via the numeric keypad and press [Enter]. When
prompted, enter the password. Invalid passwords cause the keyboard to revert to
its initial state. Once the log-in is successful, the keyboard will show camera and
monitor numbers in its display.
Upon logging in, the monitor controlled by the keyboard may automatically switch to
a pre-assigned camera number. This function is only applicable if enabled by the
system administrator (via the optional MCS package) and may not function if the
monitor is running a sequence and/or in an alarm condition.
NOTE
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
The information below applies to both IntuiKey keyboards and the LTC 8555 Series
keyboards. Where applicable, button designations specific to IntuiKey keyboards
are shown in plain text. Equivalent button designations that apply to the LTC 8555
Series keyboards are placed in brackets ([ ]) immediately after the IntuiKey button
text.

17.2.2 Keyboard Log-off Procedure
If the log-in feature has not been enabled, this action is not applicable. If the feature
has been enabled, press: User Log-off [User, then OFF].
Any priority based remote control or monitor locks made by the user will automatically be released at time of log-off.
17.3 Switcher Commands
•
Camera Selection: Enter a camera number for viewing and press [Enter]. (The
keyboard default mode is the camera mode).
•
If the Allegiant is configured to operate in “6-digit Camera ID” mode, up to 6
digits can be entered. If the new camera is at the same “site” as the current
camera, simply enter 1 to 4 camera number digits.
If the desired camera is at a different “site”, 5 or 6 digits must be entered. The
first and second digits would be the site number and the remaining 4 digits,
including any leading zeros would be the camera number at that site.
•
Monitor Selection: Press MON [Monitor], enter a monitor number and press
[Enter].
17.4 Controlling Camera Movement
Camera positioning is controlled via an eight-way joystick on the right-hand side of
the keyboard. This joystick controls the camera pan/tilt (if equipped), moves the
camera up, down, left, right, or diagonally. Moving the joystick up and to the right
simultaneously moves the camera in a diagonal direction.
Rotate the joystick knob to control the zoom lens in or out. The direction of its
response depends on the camera/lens model and certain system configuration settings that are determined at installation. Up to four pan/tilt/zoom commands may
be sent to a remote camera site at a time (Example - Zoom In, Focus Far, Pan Left,
and Tilt Down). All three (3) zoom lens functions can also be sent simultaneously
(Example - Zoom Out, Focus Near, Iris Open).
17.4.1 Focus and Iris Lens Control
The lens control buttons are on the right side of the keyboard. The camera's zoom
lens (if equipped) is controlled to focus near or far, and open or close the iris (if the
lens supports manual iris operation).
17.4.2 Lock or Unlock Control of a Camera
When using IntuiKey keyboards, press [Device Lockout], located on the main Allegiant menu screen to enter a menu screen for these options. With the LTC 8555
Series keyboards, press [Lock], then [ON] to lock a camera. To unlock a camera,
press [OFF]. If the camera to be locked is not the one currently being viewed, enter
the camera number via the numeric keyboard (but do not press [Enter]) before
pressing [Lock].
If the Status option is enabled, the section of the onscreen overlay between the
camera number and the time shows RL, indicating the camera is locked. Activating a
camera lock immediately prevents other operators (unless they have a higher priority) from controlling the locked pan/tilt/zoom camera. Remember to unlock the
camera when finished so other operators can access it.

•
With LTC 8555 Series keyboards, press [Monitor], [Lock], then [ON] to lock a monitor or [OFF] to unlock the monitor. If the monitor to be unlocked is not the one
currently being controlled by the keyboard, enter the monitor number (but do
not press [Enter]) after you press [Monitor].
If the Status option is enabled, the section of the on-screen overlay between the
camera number and the time shows ML indicating the monitor is locked. This status
prevents other operators from changing the video on the monitor being used
(unless they have a higher priority). Remember to unlock the monitor when finished
so other operators can access it. If an operator with a higher priority accesses a
locked monitor and switches to a different camera, the lock is automatically
removed.
17.4.4 Recording a Camera Pre-position Scene
Select a camera with pan/tilt/zoom control and with preposition options. Using the
joystick and lens controls, adjust the camera to view the scene you wish to store.
When using IntuiKey keyboards, press [Camera Control], located on the main Allegiant menu screen to enter a menu screen with this option. Press Set Shot [Set], then
select the scene number via the numeric keypad, and press [Enter]. The camera
position is stored for recall later.
If an AutoDome Series camera is being used, certain pre-position commands are
also used to activate operational features/functions. Refer to the AutoDome operation manual for complete information.
If an Allegiant conventional receiver/driver is being controlled, the pan/tilt and
zoom lens must have the necessary options for pre-position operation. On certain
models of AutoDomes and Allegiant Receiver/Driver Series, it is possible to disable
a previously stored pre-position, or remove it from a pre-position tour, by pressing
Set Shot [Set], the digit 9, followed by the 2-digit pre-position number. Refer to information supplied with the device to determine if it supports this feature.
NOTE
Alarm activations are defaulted to call preposition scene 16.
17.4.5 Recalling a Camera Pre-position Scene
Select the camera to be activated. Press [Shot], enter a previously stored camera
position number via the numeric keypad, then press [Enter]. The camera automatically returns to the previously stored position. If a second pre-position is called
prior to the completion of the first, the camera will move directly to the second
shot.
If the AutoDome Series camera is being used, certain pre-position commands are
also used to activate operational features/functions. Refer to the AutoDome operation manual for complete information.
17.4.6 Activate/Deactivate Auxiliary Function
When using IntuiKey keyboards, press [Camera Control], on the main Allegiant menu
screen to enter a menu containing these options. To turn on an auxiliary function of
a remote camera device, press Aux ON [ON], enter the number of the auxiliary you
would like to activate and then press [Enter]. Holding the [Enter] key down causes the
auxiliary function to be sent repeatedly. This capability is useful when the auxiliary
is activating a housing window washer function, or a temporary light source.
To turn OFF an auxiliary function of a remote camera device, press Aux OFF [OFF],
enter the number of the auxiliary you would like to deactivate and then press [Enter].

With the AutoDome Series of cameras, auxiliary commands are used to activate/
deactivate certain operational features/functions. Refer to the AutoDome camera
manual for complete information on features supported by the model.
In the Allegiant Receiver/Driver Series, the first four auxiliaries correspond to relay
outputs. Option switches in the receiver/driver can configure these to operate as
either latching or momentary type functions. If configured for the latching type, the
auxiliary stays on once it is activated until it is turned OFF. If configured as momentary, the auxiliary remains on only as long as the [Enter] key is pressed. Auxiliary outputs 2 through 4 can also be configured as a contact closure, 24 VAC, or as line
voltage. Auxiliary number 5 controls the DITHER function, detailed below. Auxiliary
number 6 corresponds to an internal receiver/driver AUTOPANNING feature, previously enabled by an option switch inside the receiver/driver.
DITHER is a legacy Allegiant receiver/driver feature designed to extend the life of
tube-based low-light level cameras. Its function was to prevent bright lights in the
scene from burning a spot on the camera imager. When this feature is active and the
pan/tilt is not moved for a period of about two minutes, the receiver/driver automatically pans right for approximately 0.5 seconds. Two minutes later, a pan left occurs,
and the cycle continues until disabled. The feature is enabled by an option switch in
the receiver/driver, and is controlled by the auxiliary 5 function. To activate the
DITHER function, turn [ON] auxiliary 5. To deactivate the feature, turn OFF auxiliary
5. When first enabled, the pan/tilt unit makes one short left/right cycle to indicate
that the DITHER function has been activated. Note that a camera in the DITHER
mode will accumulate a viewing error if left unattended for a long period of time, so
occasionally a manual adjustment of the pan/tilt may be required.
17.5 Alarm Commands
17.5.1 Arm/Disarm Individual Alarms
Alarm commands control the system's automatic video switching capabilities, in
response to alarm signals.
When using IntuiKey keyboards, press [Alarm Control], located on the main Allegiant
menu screen, to enter a menu screen with these options. To arm an individual alarm
on the monitor currently controlled by the IntuiKey, press [Arm Alarm], enter the
alarm number to be armed via the numeric keypad, then press [Enter]. To disarm an
individual alarm when using the IntuiKey, press [Disarm Alarm], enter the alarm number to be disarmed via the numeric keypad, then press [Enter].
To arm/disarm an individual alarm when using an LTC 8555 Series keyboard, press
Alarm, enter in the alarm number to be armed via the numeric keypad, and then
press [ON] to arm the alarm, or [OFF] to disarm it. The camera number activated by
an alarm, by default, is the same as the alarm number, although this relationship can
be changed via the optional Allegiant PC-based MCS package. When the alarm number does not match the camera number, it is important to specify the alarm number
when using this command. The monitor status display (if enabled) shows CA (camera/alarm armed) whenever an armed camera is selected.

17.5.4 Alarms Acknowledgement
Bell [Ack] is provided so system operators can respond to alarms from the keyboard.
Press Bell [Ack] when the keyboard is beeping (due to an alarm condition) to silence
the beeper. Depending on alarm configuration programming, subsequent pressing
of Bell [Ack] either clears an alarm video from the monitors or has no effect.
17.6 Sequence Control
17.6.1 Load/Clear a Sequence
To load a previously programmed sequence to run on your monitor, press Load
Sequence [Seq], enter the desired sequence number (1 to 60), then press [Enter].
Note that loading a sequence does not automatically start the sequence running.
Since sequences may be programmed to use more than one monitor, all required
monitors must be available. If a sequence is already on a monitor, the operator who
loaded it originally (or an operator with a higher priority) is permitted to load a new
sequence on the monitor(s). Others will receive an error message.
To clear a monitor sequence, press Load sequence [Seq], then press [Enter]. Only the
operator who originally loaded it (or an operator with a higher priority) is permitted
to clear a monitor sequence. Others will receive an error message. If enabled, the
status display area of the monitor indicates the sequence number in the appropriate
location. If no sequence is currently loaded, 00 is displayed.

17.6.2 Run a Sequence
To run a sequence currently loaded on a monitor, press Start Sequence [Run]. If the
sequence is stopped, the command starts sequencing. Direction of the sequencing
is indicated in the monitor status display (if enabled), by a directional arrow and the
letter R to the right of the sequence number. If Start Sequence [Run] is pressed while
a sequence is already running, the switcher goes immediately to the next step in the
sequence. Holding down Start Sequence [Run] produces a quick-scan effect. If Start
Sequence [Run] is depressed when no sequence is loaded, an error results. If the
monitor is in alarm, Start Sequence [Run] controls switching of alarm video rather
than a loaded sequence.
17.6.3 Stop a Running Sequence
To stop a sequence that is currently running, press Hold Sequence [Hold]. The monitor status display shows a S to the right of the sequence number. If the sequence is
already stopped, pressing Hold Sequence [Hold] has no effect. If no sequence is currently loaded, pressing Hold Sequence [Hold] results in an error condition. If the monitor is in alarm, Hold Sequence [Hold] stops the alarm switcher rather than a loaded
sequence.
17.6.4 Controlling Sequence Direction
The direction of a sequence can be set to run either forward or reverse. It is also
possible to manually step forward or reverse through a stopped sequence.
These actions work as follows:
If Next Sequence Step [Next] is pressed with the sequence in the stop state, the
sequence switches forward and remains stopped. If the sequence is running when
Next Sequence Step [Next] is pressed, it immediately goes to the next step and continues to run. The same is true for the Previous Sequence Step [Prev] button, but in
the reverse direction. If either Next Sequence Step [Next] or Previous Sequence Step
[Prev] is held down, quick-scan switching at a rate of approximately two steps per
second will take place. When sequences are first loaded, their direction defaults to
forward.
If Previous Sequence Step [Prev] is pressed while a camera sequence is running, it
reverses the sequence. If Previous Sequence Step [Prev] is pushed while in a hold
mode, and the display is showing the forward prompt, the first push changes the
direction only, and a second push then switches to the previous step.
The same is true for Next Sequence Step [Next] in the opposite direction. The monitor
status display shows an arrow pointing either up or down to indicate the sequence
direction. The arrow will be to the right of the sequence number, either above or
below the sequence run R or stopped S indicator. If the monitor is in alarm, Previous
Sequence Step [Prev] and Next Sequence Step [Next] control the alarm switcher rather
than the loaded sequence.
If no sequence is loaded, pressing Next Sequence Step [Next] or Previous Sequence
Step [Prev] automatically steps the switcher through the camera numbers in numerical order.

17.7 Sequence Programming
17.7.1 Programming a Simple Camera Sequence
The Allegiant system has powerful sequencing capabilities. Using a system keyboard, it is possible to enter sequences to run on a single or on multiple monitors.
As long as valid camera and monitor numbers are used, they can be entered into a
sequence randomly. More powerful features are available when sequences are programmed via the PC-based LTC 8059 MCS, including receiver/driver activation as
part of a sequence step.
Sequence programming is limited only by the amount of CPU memory reserved for
storing the sequence steps.
The current limit for these Allegiant models is 3000 steps. Comparing a sequence to
a spreadsheet, a simple sequence would consist of three (3) columns as follows:
CAMERA
MONITOR
DWELL
1
1
2
2
1
2
3
1
2
4
1
2
5
1
2
Sequence programming is best described by going through the above example. To
enter the programming mode, press Program Sequence [Prog]. Enter an available
sequence number (1 to 60 for these Allegiant models), then press [Enter]. The onscreen monitor display changes to the following format:
1st Line = Site ** S0001 L0001 Time(Ignore)
2nd Line = >C0001<
M001
D02 Date(Ignore)
** 2-digit site number will be displayed only if 6-digit camera ID is mode is enabled.
The top line of the display always indicates the current step being viewed in the
S0001 section. The total length of the sequence is displayed in the L0001 section.
When programming a new sequence, the camera number that was being viewed
before entering the programming mode is automatically placed between the > <
prompts, as in the example C0001 above. Now enter the 1st camera of the sequence
into this position. If 6-digit camera ID mode is enabled, five or six digits must be
entered. If the camera number is correct, no action is necessary. If not, enter the
desired camera number via the keypad and press [Enter].
Using the joystick, move RIGHT one step. The prompts will shift over to the monitor
number shown in the example M001. The monitor that was being controlled by the
keyboard before entering the programming mode is defaulted to this position. If correct, no action is necessary. If not, enter the desired monitor number via the keypad, and press [Enter].
Move RIGHT again. The prompts now shift over to the dwell time shown in the
example D02. The default dwell time for a new sequence is always two (2) seconds.
If a different dwell period is desired, change the value to any number between 1 and
60. One line is now complete. Press Next Step [Next] to add a second line. The camera number increments automatically, while the monitor number and dwell remain
the same as the first line. Since this line is correct, no change is necessary and Next
Step [Next] may be pressed three (3) more times until line five (5) is reached. The
joystick can be used to move around within the spreadsheet, but only the Next Step
[Next] key can add new lines.
Continue entering camera, monitor, and dwell times in this fashion until finished. If
you only want to store the sequence for future use and then exit the programming

17.7.2 Programming a SalvoSwitching Camera Sequence
A SalvoSwitching sequence can be used to switch a group of monitors simultaneously as a synchronized group. To program a Salvo sequence, enter the programming mode as described above for a simple camera sequence. By definition, Salvo
sequencing involves more than one monitor. An example of a simple Salvo sequence
that switches cameras on three (3) monitors simultaneously is shown below:

In general, follow the instructions used for the simple camera sequence (described
above), but instead of entering a number of seconds for steps that must switch
instantly, enter 61 and press [Enter]. This causes the switcher to automatically
change to the salvo abbreviation SLV. Dwell time (in seconds) is entered only when
you reach the step containing the last monitor that will be switched within the synchronized group.

User Function 40 - Reserved Function
User Function 41 - Set Satellite Communication Format
This function provides three (3) configuration options that determine the behavior
and content of the data commands issued by a master system to a satellite system.
In most cases, it is only necessary to change the default setting if using a multi-level
cascaded Allegiant satellite system configuration. (see Section Appendix A “Satellite Systems,” on page 107 for more information on satellite system configurations.)
Detailed descriptions of these options are listed below.
After entering the mode, move the joystick up or down to select the desired option.
Enter a valid user password, and press [Enter].
•
CACHE REM CAM option (default factory setting). In this mode, satellite commands are issued repetitively, regardless of whether the satellite camera is still
being viewed by an operator. This mode of operation is more desirable in standard systems because it minimizes delays when previous satellite cameras are
reselected. It is not recommended for use in cascaded systems. In cascaded
systems, this mode could result in all available trunk lines coming from the 3rd
level satellite system to become used up, making them unavailable to the operators at the intermediate system.
•
NO REM CAM CACHE option. In this mode, after the top level operator selects a
locally connected camera, the trunk line between the top level and the intermediate level system will immediately be reset to its start-up camera (as defined in
the Monitor Table of the LTC 8059/00 MCS). This in turn frees up the trunk line
between the intermediate level system and the 3rd level system so it will be
available if needed by an operator at the intermediate level system.
In addition, this option changes the behavior of how the system determines
which trunk line to use. When this option is not used, a new trunk line (if available) will be used for each camera selection. When this option is enabled, an
operator's monitor will use the same trunk from the same bay as different cameras are selected, as long as no other operator is viewing the same satellite
camera. In 3-tier cascaded satellite systems, this feature minimizes the use of
trunk lines by the top level Master system. This is especially advantageous when
the operator at the Master site is viewing cameras from the 3rd level satellite.
Since this will result in less trunk lines being used up, the intermediate Master/
Satellite system will have more access to trunk lines from the 3rd level satellite.

SAT nnn PRIORITY option. If the top level master system and intermediate level
system in a cascade configuration can or will be set to operate as “Dual Master”
systems, a priority based satellite camera selection feature can be configured.
In a default cascaded satellite system configuration, satellite switching commands are not associated with a user priority level. When a switching command
sent from a master site is received by a satellite, the switch selection can imme-
Instruction Manual
F.01U.127.393 | 2.0 | 2009.03
LTC 8600 | LTC 8800 Series
en | 81
diately be overridden by operators at the satellite location having any priority
level. This situation is more likely to be encountered in 3-tier satellite systems
that do not have a good distribution of trunk lines (i.e., more between the top
level system and the intermediate level system than there are between the intermediate system and the 3rd tier satellite).
Since dual master configurations support bi-directional communications,
selecting the SAT nnn PRIORITY option for both the top level and intermediate
level master systems will result in the generation of priority based satellite commands.
The satellite number assigned to the system that is currently being programmed
must be specified for the nnn value. This feature will enable use of the operator's user priority to determine if access to a desired satellite camera is provided or not. For instance, if no trunk lines are available and an operator
requesting a satellite camera has higher priority than at least 1 of the existing
operators, the requested camera will be switched. If the operator does not have
sufficient priority, they will receive an error message (i.e., error 81) via the satellite communication path, and their camera will switch to the start-up camera
specified in the Monitor Table.
In addition, the same behavior for selecting trunk lines as described in the NO
REM CAM CACHE option is applicable to this option. An operator's monitor will
use the same trunk from the same bay as different cameras are selected, as
long as no other operator is viewing the same satellite camera.
User Function 42 - Keyboard Log-in Auto-off Mode
Priority 1 users can use this function to select a keyboard log-off feature to automatically log a keyboard off after a pre-selected time of inactivity. After entering the
mode, move the joystick up or down to select the desired time period. Enter a valid
password, and press [Enter]. If using the LTC 8555 keyboard, press [User] to exit the
mode.
User Function 43 - CPU Battery Status
Use this function to view the condition of the batteries used to backup CPU memory. Once the function is entered, the condition is displayed on the monitor text display. If using the LTC 8555 keyboard, press [User] to exit the mode.

using User Function 9 (see above) or via third party RS-232 serial interface utilizing
the Allegiant Command Console Language (CCL) commands.
User Function 47 – Six-digit Camera ID
Use this function to enable/disable “6-digit Camera ID” mode. When enabled, 2digit “site numbers” are displayed in addition to the 4-digit camera number. The 2digit site number feature is especially useful when groups of cameras are located in
separate buildings, floors, or other common areas.
By default, all 6-digit camera numbers are assigned to site “00” and the remaining
digits correspond to the standard 4-digit camera numbers. Use the PC-based LTC
8059 Master Control Software to enter unique 6-digit camera numbers for each system camera. When enabled, all keyboard based camera selections and Sequence
programming must be done using the 6-digit number.
Once the function is entered, move the joystick up/down to select the desired

23 GLOSSARY OF TERMS
Auxiliary
An auxiliary is an additional function of the remote receiver/driver which permits
on/off control of outputs available to the user. In the Allegiant system, there are four
relay outputs available which can be configured for contact closures, 24 VAC output,
or LINE voltage output. They can also be set to activate either momentarily or in a
latching mode.
Command Script
A unique feature of the Allegiant system wherein a section of nonvolatile memory
can be used to store specialized user-defined programming. A program of this type
could then provide custom features which ordinarily would not be obtainable.
Dither
A receiver/driver feature which provides added protection to very low light level
cameras by periodically panning a few degrees left and right automatically.
Lockouts
The ability of a switcher/controller system to restrict access of operations to certain
system functions or features. The Allegiant system has two modes of lockouts. The
first mode is based on operator priority level. This allows a higher priority level
operator to lockout lower level operators from either viewing or controlling specific
cameras. The second mode involves LTC 8059 Master Control Software setups
which can:
•
Restrict operators/keyboards from viewing/accessing any camera.
•
Restrict operators/keyboards from controlling/accessing any pan/tilt.
•
Restrict operators from using certain keyboards.
•
Restrict operators/keyboards from accessing certain monitors.
Log-on, Log-off
A selectable feature of the Allegiant system which requires operators to enter a User
number and an optional password into the keyboard prior to having access to system operations.
Matrix Switching
The ability of a switching system to display any camera on any monitor or the same
camera on all monitors.
Phased Cameras
Properly integrated cameras which give a roll-free video display when switching
from one camera to the next in a sequential switcher system. Phased cameras are
the result of line-locked cameras being powered from the same AC power, externally
synchronized, or vertically phased adjusted on cameras equipped with this option.
Pre-position
The ability to store the position of a pan/tilt and zoom lens so that the same desired
scene can be later recalled automatically. With the Allegiant system, there can be
multiple preset scenes stored for each pan/tilt camera. For each scene, the pan, tilt,
zoom, and focus settings are stored.
SalvoSwitching
The ability of the Allegiant system to switch multiple video monitors as a synchronized group. Since multiple monitors switch together, the operator can view multiple scenes of a specific area or zone before switching to the next area.
F.01U.127.393 | 2.0 | 2009.03
Instruction Manual
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
106 | en
LTC 8600 | LTC 8800 Series
Sequence
A series of camera scenes that can be preprogrammed to automatically switch. The
Allegiant system can store up to 60 separate sequences, with each one capable of
having a random camera order, individual camera dwell times, and SalvoSwitching
steps.
Time Event
An Allegiant system feature (available with the LTC 8850 GUI Software or the
LTC 8059 MCS) that enables various system functions to be periodically activated
automatically. Event functions such as monitor message broadcasts, sequence and
switching operations, receiver/driver actions, message printing, alarm settings, and
execution of custom factory programming can be stored in the system memory to
be executed at a pre-determined time. The task can be specified to begin on a specific year, month, day, and time, and can be programmed to repeat at intervals ranging from every five minutes up to a year.
Vertical Interval Switching
Vertical Interval switching is a method of switching video from camera to camera
during the vertical blanking interval period of the video signal. This minimizes visual
switching disturbances such as rolling, jitter, video flashes, etc. and eliminates
frame information loss when used with VCR machines.

Appendix A Satellite Systems
A satellite system configuration is usually used for a medium to large distributed
system, or to obtain extremely large matrix sizes configured more conventionally.
Typically, a single Main control site can be used to view/control cameras located
both locally and at various remote satellite sites. Since up to 256 satellite sites can
be linked to a single Main control site, very large, distributed systems can be
achieved. If the satellite systems are located at the same site as the Main system,
the result is a large conventional-type system.
In a satellite configuration, the Main control site can view/control any camera in the
entire system, but the remote satellite sites can only view/control cameras associated with their own site. Satellites may be configured to operate either independently or, with no local viewing/control capability.
It is also possible to configure satellite systems where each site can view/control
cameras from anywhere in the system. For a two (2) site system, this is referred to
as a dual master configuration. In the same manner, triple and quadruple master
system configurations can also be configured. Cascaded satellite systems, where a
Main site has a satellite which is a master to another satellite is another available
scenario. In fact, it is possible to configure systems that include a mixture of any or
all of the above scenarios.

‘Cascaded’ Satellite Configuration
Figure 22: Possible Allegiant Satellite System Configurations
Any Allegiant Series switcher model (LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300, LTC 8500, LTC
8600, LTC 8800, or LTC 8900) can be used as a main site or a satellite site unit. All
products are standard models, and the only special requirement is to use either the
optional LTC 8059/00 MCS or the optional LTC 8850/00 GUI Software package for
initial programming of each Allegiant system.
An Allegiant biphase control data line from the code distribution unit at the Main
site must be provided to each satellite site. This data line carries all pan/tilt/zoom
control commands, in addition to the switching commands generated by the Main
site switcher. The control data line should be connected to a LTC 8780 Series Data
Converter to provide address decoding functions for the satellite site. If operators
at the satellite site are permitted to control pan/tilt/zoom-equipped cameras, a

LTC 8569 Series Code Merger must be installed at the satellite site. The Code
Merger combines code generated by the main site and the satellite site, so both
sites have control over pan/tilt/zoom-equipped cameras located at the satellite site.
The LTC 8780 Series unit can then be connected to one of the data outputs of the
LTC 8569 Series unit.
One or more monitor outputs from each satellite system are used as video trunk
lines to link the remote sites to the Main site. The number of trunk lines from a satellite site determines the maximum number of cameras from that site that may be
viewed simultaneously at the Main site. A satellite switcher model must be selected
so that it provides the desired number of local monitor outputs plus the number of
monitor outputs that will be used as trunk lines.
The Main site switcher must include sufficient camera inputs for local cameras plus
trunk lines. The maximum physical number of camera inputs or monitor outputs
used as trunk lines cannot exceed the capacity of the system. A single Main site
switcher can control multiple satellite sites up to its video input limit. If full matrix
switching is required at the Main site, the number of trunk lines from each satellite
site must equal the number of monitors connected to the Main site switcher. Multiple independently controlled Main site systems can be combined to provide large
numbers of monitor outputs at the Main site. System capacities are listed below:

Since Main site Allegiant Series switchers support access to a large quantity of
remote satellite cameras, they provide additional logical camera numbers for identifying the location of the satellite camera inputs in the system. These logical camera
numbers can also include titles which would appear on the Main site's monitors for
any remote cameras. Since each camera (anywhere in the system) must have a
unique camera number, logical camera numbers together with physical camera
inputs make up the total system camera capacity. Thus, there is a trade-off between
the total number of Main site cameras and the number of inputs used as trunk lines.
The more inputs used as trunk lines, the fewer there are for use as direct camera
inputs.

*Camera inputs at all sites, plus trunk lines.
The Main site system must be programmed via the MCS LTC 8059/00 or the
LTC 8850/00 GUI to identify camera trunk line inputs as well as remote satellite
cameras. All systems must be configured with no duplicate camera numbers anywhere in the system. The installer should verify that the camera numbers programmed into the Start-up Camera field of the Monitor table are suitable for viewing
by respective operators. If there are Lockouts programmed into the system, specify-

ing a neutral camera would prevent the situation where a restricted camera could
be switched to a restricted operator's monitor when their trunk line is stolen. For
this feature to operate properly, the start-up camera numbers must be locally connected cameras or a local unused input (i.e., the raster generator will be displayed
when called-up).
In addition, it is recommended to program Lockouts for all system keyboards so that
they do not have access to unused monitor outputs. This prevents operators from
inadvertently selecting a satellite camera on a non-existent monitor which will result
in a trunk link becoming used up, possibly making less trunk lines available for valid
selections.
Keyboard User Function 41 (See Chapter 15, “User Information,” on page 56) offers
additional programming options if a multi-level cascaded Allegiant satellite system
configuration is being used.
Any alarm inputs to the Main site configured to activate satellite cameras operate
normally except when limited by the number of available trunk lines. The software
automatically determines trunk usage, depending on the priority level of operators
currently viewing satellite cameras.
Alarm inputs applied at a satellite site will NOT activate alarm video at the Main site.
If the application requires alarms located at a satellite to activate video at the Main
site, the Main site's LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interface unit must be remotely located.
Multiple LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interfaces may be remoted via the LTC 8713 alarm port
expander accessory, located at the Main switcher site in LTC 8800 and LTC 8900
systems. Up to two (2) LTC 8540/00 alarm interfaces with a LTC 8713 alarm port
expander can be used in a LTC 8600 system. One LTC 8540/00 can be used in LTC
8500 systems. Since the LTC 8100, LTC 8200, and LTC 8300 Series contain an integral alarm interface, the remote alarm interface application does not apply.
A unique time and date synchronizing feature provided in the Time Event table of
the MCS or the GUI Software may be programmed into the Main site switcher. This
permits periodic synchronizing of the time and date to all remote switchers in the
system based on the Main site's clock.

Appendix C Quick Reference Cable Interconnections
C.1
Main Bay Video
COAX-All video input and output connections to the Allegiant system should be
made using a good grade of RG59U, RG6, or RG11U coaxial cable using BNC connectors. The following guidelines should be used to insure selection of the proper
cable type:
C.2
C.3
1.
Center conductor of copper, not copper weld or steel. Use stranded wire where
there will be cable movement as with pan/tilts, elevators, etc.
2.
Copper braided shield at 93% coverage or better.
3.
Cable impedance of 75 ohms.
4.
Select cable based on target of no more than 15 ohms of center conductor
resistance. A typical value for RG59U is 15 ohms per 300 m (1000 ft), therefore
maximum cable run should be no more than 300 m (1000 ft). RG11U/RG6 is
typically rated for 6 ohms per 300 m (1000 ft) which permits runs up to 760 m
(2500 ft).
5.
Use video amplifiers to extend cable distances beyond maximum limitations
listed above.
•
The keyboard comes supplied with 3 m (10 ft) of 6 conductor phone type cable
with RJ-11 connectors. The cable plugs directly into the rear of the system's
main bay on one end and into the back of the keyboard on the other end. Both
data and power for the keyboard travel over this cable.
•
An optional 30 m (100 ft) cable is also available.
•
An optional kit which permits the keyboard to be extended beyond 30 m
(100 ft) is available and uses customer supplied shielded twisted pair. The kit
consists of two “breakout” boxes which convert from the phone type cables to
the shielded twisted pair and also provide for local keyboard power. Maximum
distance using 24 gauge wire (Belden 9841 or equivalent) is typically 1.5 km
(5000 ft).
Keyboards
Alarm Interface Unit
CONNECTION TO MAIN BAY
The Alarm unit is supplied with a 3 m long (10 ft) multiconductor cable with
9-pin D-type connectors. Power to the Alarm unit is provided by the Allegiant's main
bay using the supplied cable. There are provisions to remote the bay which would
then require local 12 VAC power and a minimal 3 wire RS-232 communication link.
ALARM INPUTS
The alarm inputs can be dry contact closures or logic levels. Connection to the
Alarm unit is made to removable screw type terminal blocks and the use of simple
twisted pair wire is acceptable.

LTC 8600 | LTC 8800 Series
C.4 Signal Distribution Unit
CONNECTION TO MAIN BAY
The Distribution unit is supplied with a 3 m long (10 ft) multiconductor cable with
9-pin D-type connectors. Power to the unit is provided by the Allegiant's main bay
using the supplied cable. The cable should not be extended so it is recommended
that the unit be located close to the main bay.
DISTRIBUTION OUTPUTS
Only shielded twisted pair wire should be used between the Distribution unit and
the camera site receiver/drivers. Connection to the Distribution unit is made to
removable screw terminal type blocks. Each output is rated to handle up to eight
receiver/driver loads as in a daisy chain configuration to a maximum of 1.5 km
(5000 ft) using a 18 gauge wire (Belden 8760 or equivalent).
C.5 Receiver/Drivers
CODE INPUT
The code input is supplied by the shielded twisted pair cable from the Signal Distribution unit. This is connected to a removable screw terminal type block which has
provisions for “looping” the code cable to another receiver/driver.
OUTPUT CONNECTIONS
All pan/tilt and lens connections will require multiconductor cable. Refer to the
appropriate specification sheet for cable gage, number of conductors required, and
maximum distances allowable. The lens cables and any pre-position cables should
be kept shielded from other signal wires to minimize interference.
