PAL YS-DX504P Duplex Multiplexer The Sony YS-DX504P Duplex Multiplexer is designed for use in multiple-camera monitoring and recording systems. This unit allows up to 4 video channels to be displayed on a single monitor. The YS-DX504P provides a high level of functionality in surveillance systems. Features include sequential switching, picture zoom and freeze, and a full range of alarm functions. This model is equipped with an RS-232C interface, allowing it to be remotely controlled by an external computer. With these and many more features, the YS-DX504P multiplexer can make an important contribution to efficient and effective monitoring and recording in surveillance systems. this is not a rehearsal. w w w.pro.sony-europe.com Multi-screen display The YS-DX504P display combinations include full screen, sequential, and 4-division split screen mode. These display combinations are available in both live and playback. The following chart shows the screen modes available from the Monitor 1 and Monitor 2 outputs.

SEQUENCE 1 1 Automatic sequential full-screen display of the 4 video cameras is also available by pushing the Sequence button. 4-division split screen (Screen 1-4) (live and playback mode) QUAD The “Quad” button allows you to view a 4-division split screen in both live and playback modes. 1 2 3 4 Zoom and Freeze functions Zoom and Freeze functions are available in the fullscreen and 4-division split screen mode to add greater surveillance flexibility. In 4-division split screen mode, free selection of one of the four pictures can be zoomed in and frozen. (Zoomed in image) (Full Screen) (Zoomed in still image) ZOOM FREEZE 4 These Zoom and Freeze picture functions can also be used together (i.e. you can zoom in and then freeze the enlarged image). 4 Z4 SZ 4 Monitor 2 Monitor 1 A full-screen or full-screen automatic sequential screen can be displayed on Monitor 2. Also, the same image as on Monitor 1 is available on Monitor 2. 1 Monitor 2 2 1 3 4 Powerful alarm functions Alarm functions are indispensable in surveillance systems. The YS-DX504P incorporates a number of powerful alarm functions and these can be tailored to optimize the information displayed to the operator. External alarm Activity detection The YS-DX504P provides 4 alarm inputs - one for each corresponding Camera Input connector. The operator can designate one sensor point per camera anywhere on the screen. If the brightness level at this point changes, an alarm is initiated and the Active Recording mode is triggered. An important feature is that a sensor point can be allocated such that it senses change in ambient light to avoid a false alarm being triggered. The overall sensitivity of the sensor point can be set for both day time and night time conditions. External alarm inputs also trigger the Active Recording mode. When an input alarm signal is received, the associated video input is displayed. The display on Monitor 1 can be pre-selected from one of the following two options: A) Full screen When an alarm trigger is received, the picture from the camera corresponding to the alarm input is displayed in full screen. B) 4-division split screen When an alarm trigger is received, the display switches to a 4-division split screen. (Video sensor alarm) Recording modes: Mode 1: The video signal from the alarmed camera is recorded exclusively. Mode 2: Recording of the video signal from the alarmed camera alternates with sequential recording of the remaining cameras. Sensor point When an input alarm signal is received, the associated video input is automatically displayed in full screen on Monitor 2. When two or more alarm triggers are received simultaneously, Monitor 2 sequentially displays the images from the cameras corresponding to the alarm triggers.

Timer functions Active Recording Mode 2 (alternate recording) Video Loss alarm Recording duration The illustration below shows outputs of all the cameras recorded during daytime, but only cameras showing a moon (1, 3) are also recorded at night. If any of the input video signals are lost, a buzzer sounds and an LED associated with the failed camera input flashes. If a split-screen display is being viewed on the Monitor 1 screen, the most recent image of the lost signal is frozen, with the words “Video Loss” flashing. When a full-screen display is in use, Monitor 1 continues to display the selected camera. If this is the camera that has failed, then the image is frozen and the flashing “Video Loss” message is displayed. Sensitivity Individual alarm duration/output The sensitivity range of the video alarm sensor can be changed to accommodate day and night time light levels. The duration of an alarm event can be individually set from 1 to 180 seconds for each camera. The recording time of each video camera can be programmed individually. You can increase or decrease the number of cameras recorded according to the time of day.
