INSTALLING THE CAMERA HEAD
1.1
X-SERIES USER MANUAL
CONVERT DOME TO BALL PTZ CONFIGURATION
The RVX Series can be mounted as a dome or ball PTZ configuration. To convert the dome to ball PTZ remove the M4
button head screws with 2.5mm allen key provided. See FIG A below.
FIG B MOUNTING ORIENTATION
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS WHEN INSTALLING:
1. Mount the Camera in a position where it cannot be be interfered with either intentionally or accidentally.
2. The mounting surface should be capable of supporting the weight of both the Camera and mounting brackets under
all expected conditions of load, vibration and temperature.
3. The mounting brackets should be fitted in accordance with instructions and should observe all appropriate safety
precautions & local building regulations.
4. Ensure the Camera is in the correct orientation, see FIG B above.
1.2
ATTACHING CAMERA TO BRACKET
BRACKET INSTALLATION:
Fixings to the various bracket types will depend on the fixing surface. It is important to use adequate quality fixings to
safely support the complete Dome/Ball PTZ assembly. Fixing slots on a 4” PCD provide adequate clearance for 6mm
bolts if attaching the Pedestal or Swan Mount to the mast.
FLYING LEAD:
If using a Swan/Pedestal/Pendant Mount, install the Fly Lead optionally through the Central Mounting Tube or via a
20mm Gland Entry Point. The Gland Entry is supplied with a 20 x 1mm thread to accomodate industry standard 20mm
Glands.
1
TM
X-SERIES USER MANUAL
ATTACHING CAMERA TO THE BRACKET: See Fig C & D below
1. Remove Mount Cover Plate.
2. Fully unscrew Hand Lock Nut.
3. Offer Camera to Bracket. The Mounting Boss orientation is important and should match the picture in FIG C & D below.
i.e The Flat Edge should be positioned to the rear and the Retaining Lugs engaged in the Boss Cut Outs.
4. If RV-PED (Pedestal) is being used support the Camera with hand when tightening the Hand Lock Nut - ensure the
Hand Lock Nut is fully tightened.
5. Ensure the Clearance is even throughout 360° rotation and the Camera is free moving.
6. Replace Mount Cover Plates.
1.3
BRACKET TYPES
RV-SWAN (Swan mount), RV-WALL (Wall mount), RV-PNDT (Pendant mount), RV-PED (Pedestal for mast/tower mount).
TECH SUPPORT COMMENT: It is important to match the menu software settings to the Camera
orientation (6.4.7) i.e. is the Camera hanging down or upright?
‘hanging down’ would be using one of the following bracket types :
• swan [RV-SWAN] ,
• pendant [RV-PNDT]
• or wall [RV-WALL] - NOT SUITABLE FOR UPRIGHT MOUNTING
‘Upright’ would be using the pedestal bracket [RV-PED]
1.4
HOW TO CANTILEVER BALL/PTZ ARMS FORWARD
1. Remove pear shaped badge on each arm using small flat head screw driver.
2. Slightly loosen by one turn (BUT DO NOT REMOVE) the allen screws.
3. Cantilever the Ball Arms forward to ‘STOP’ position.
4. Tighten allen screws.
5. Replace badges (spares are provided).
6. See Section 6.4.7 and from the SET UP MENU select either ‘UPRIGHT ARMS OUT’ or ‘HANGING ARMS OUT’

NIGHT MODE
X-SERIES USER MANUAL
ACTIVATING NIGHT-MODE
The X-Series operates either in “Day Mode” or “Night Mode”.
Switching between these two modes is controlled by the “Night Mode Switching” setting, and the “Auto switch delay” period.
The user can force the X-Series PTZ to switch between day & night using the “lamp” key on their controller, or by using the
shortcut preset when configured from the “Joystick >Shortcuts >Night Mode Switching” menu .
If the X-Series PTZ is configured to switch between day & night automatically, it will revert back after the “Auto switch
delay” period.
LOW-LIGHT / ZERO-LIGHT PROFILES
The X-Series allows the user to store two possible profiles for night operation. One of these is selected as the default when
the X-Series PTZ switches from day to night, the user selects this from the “Night mode profile” menu.
Both profiles can be configured in any way, giving a great degree of flexibility.
If the X-Series has illuminators fitted, these can be configured in the “Night Mode > Low Light Mode Settings” and “Night
Mode >Zero Light Mode Settings” menus. If mixed-mode illuminators are fitted, the illumination mode (IR / White) can also be set.
CAMERA (PICTURE) SETTINGS
The X-Series allows the user to configure separate camera (picture) configuration for each profile: Day Mode (colour), Low
Light Mode (low light colour or white light), and Zero-Light Mode (IR). These profiles are configured from the “Camera
settings” menu.
NIGHT PROFILE SWITCHING
At night, the user can force the X-Series to switch between these two configurations in several ways:
• Using the “Iris” key, when configured from the Camera menu “Iris Key Usage”
• By configuring one or more preset positions to over-ride the default setting (Menu > Preset > Edit Preset > Night Mode)
• Presets which are stored when the dome is in night-mode will recall which configuration (Low-light or zero-light) was
active when they were stored. Presets set in day mode will automatically use the “Select Night Mode” setting.
• By using the shortcut preset, when configured from the “Joystick > Shortcuts > Night Mode Profile”
• When there is an active alarm input configured to over-ride the default night-mode (Menu > Alarms > Edit Alarm > Night Mode)
If the user forces a profile switch, the dome will revert back to the configured profile after the period set in the “Night Mode
> Override Timeout” menu.

SAMPLE WHITE LIGHT SET-UP
Manually enabling White light on the RVX dual light dome; when the RVX dome is in “Night Mode” it is possible for either a
monitoring station or a onsite security guard to override the default IR settings of the dome to turn on the White Lights by:
1) Entering the RVX menu:
Ô LOGIN > MAIN MENU > JOYSTICK > SHORTCUTS > NIGHT PROFILE S/C PS > Set to “desired preset i.e. Preset 10”.
This will allow the White Light to be toggled on and off by using the saved preset i.e. preset 10.
2) Entering the RVX menu:
Ô LOGIN > MAIN MENU > CAMERA SETTINGS > IRIS KEY USAGE > Set to “Night Profile Switch”. This will allow the
White Light to be toggled on and off by using the front end (DVR) Iris key.
Exit left out of the menu and the settings will save.
TECH SUPPORT COMMENT: When presets are saved in the RVX range of domes, they are also automatically
saved into “Tour 1” as default!
Setting presets to White light during a tour on the RVX dual light dome; firstly save the presets that you wish to be in the
default tour, as these are saved they will have also been saved in default tour 1.
To edit some or all of the presets to be in White Light when touring:
Ô LOGIN > MAIN MENU > PRESETS & TOURS > PRESETS > EDIT PRESET > PRESET
No i.e. Presets 1-5 > NIGHT MODE > Set to “Low-Light Mode”. Exit left out of the menu and the settings will save.
Now when these presets are run in the tour (when the dome is in “Night Mode”) they will be in White Light.
Alarms to trigger RVX dual light dome to White Light on presets; firstly save the presets that you wish to react on alarms
i.e. Presets 1-5.
Secondly in the RVX menu:
Ô LOGIN > MAIN MENU > PRESETS & TOURS > PRESETS > EDIT PRESET > PRESET No i.e. Presets 1-5 > NIGHT
MODE > Set to “Low-Light Mode”. Exit left out of the menu and the settings will save. Now when these presets are
recalled (when the dome is in “Night Mode”) either by recalling a preset manually or via an alarm the preset will be in
White Light.
If these Alarm presets are NOT wanted in the default tour, they can be edited out of the tour;
Ô LOGIN > MAIN MENU > PRESETS & TOURS > TOURS > TOUR 1 > EDIT TOUR > POSITION No i.e. Position 1-5 >
PRESET No i.e. Preset 1-5 > Set to “No Preset”. This keeps the presets but removes them from the default tour.

FOCUS SHIFT
TECH SUPPORT COMMENT: Technicians will be familiar with setting up focus on a ‘fixed’ camera by
temporarily fitting the lens with a Neutral Density (ND) filter to compensate for focus shift when the camera
switches to mono. The best way to ensure optimum focus on THE REDVISION X-SERIES PTZ/Dome camera is to
set ‘night-time’ presets when the light levels are low and the camera is in Zero light mode. If using a PTZ fitted
with IR, the IR lamps should be switched ON (RVX-IR versions only). The controller's 'focus near' and 'focus far'
keys can be used to fine tune the focus manually before saving the preset. This way the camera will remember
the IR focus settings at an absolute focal length for that specific preset.

ALARM HANDLING IN MENU SOFTWARE
X-SERIES USER MANUAL
The alarms can be mapped to any preset or tour, or to just put a message on the screen.
Within the Edit Alarm menu (12.4) use 56 to select alarm number; within each alarm you can set type of action, dwell,
and time-based masking for weekdays (12.4.1) & weekends (12.4.2).
The time-based masking is SECONDARY to the "Enable alarms" menu (12.1). If the alarm is not enabled, it will be
completely ignored.
If an alarm is enabled, but masked, the user can then decide to set it to be "silent" or "message only" [12.4.3].
Title [12.4.6] is the title or name of the alarm (just like giving a preset or tour a title), this will be displayed on screen
when the alarm activates.
ALARM ACTIONS:
"Go to preset" will go to preset *if set* and dwell on it for <dwell> seconds. Otherwise it will just display alarm title (if
set) or alarm number (if not) on screen for <dwell> before moving on.
"Go to tour" will invoke the selected tour (if set) for <dwell> seconds. Otherwise it will just display alarm title (if set)
alarm number (if not) on screen for <dwell> before moving on.
It is down to the user to ensure that the alarm dwell time gives sufficient time to run the tour, or as much
of the tour as they require.
"Message only" will display alarm title (if set) / number (if not) on screen for <dwell> seconds before
moving on.
Silent will do nothing and move on instantly.
When all alarms are cleared, the camera will be pointing at wherever the last preset was, or running the last tour.
This will continue until either the user moves the Camera, or the HOME RESTORE MODE (10.4.4) [if set] kicks in.
12.1
ENABLE /DISABLE ALARMS
Alarms need to be ‘enabled’ in order to function correctly. This feature can also be used to disable nuisance alarms caused
