【Total Size(M)】:Display the total size of the disk.
【Free Space(M)】:Display the total free space of the disk, which is the
maximum space can be assigned for recording.
【Allotted Data Package】:Display the number of data package, which has been
assigned for recording before.
【Residual Data Package】:Display the number of data package that can be
assigned for recording.
【Residual Data Package】 = 【Free Space(M)】/256
【New Data Package】:Select the number of the data package that user want
to create for recording.

1.2.1 Create Package
13
Hybrid NDVR Server Manual
User can select the number of data package for each disk in the dropbutton to create data
down list. Then user can press
package and index for recording. After that, software could calculate the rest
space automatically.
Note:
Please format the whole disk thoroughly before using it to be recorded. Each
package for recording (Recdata****.mp4) is 256MB, and it is
associated with its index file (RecIndex****.inx). They must work together, or
user can’t playback recording data correctly. Also, user can’t modify them
unless deleting them together manually.
By default, disk C and Disk D are used for system application, so our software
will not use it (default: 【New Data Package】= 0) unless you change it.
Since windows will pop up information to warn when the disk has low space,
by default, our software will leave 3 packages (about 256*3=768 MB) for disks
(except C and D) to avoid that information. That is to say, the default value of disks
(except C and D):
【New Data Package】 = 【Residual Data Package】-3
Software will cost much more time to create data package and index for
FAT32 system than that for NTSC.
【Note】: Each record drive must be less than 2.5T, or software will have some
problem while recording.

happens;
4) Image size is the format used when recording. Remote image size is the
format used when these images are transmitted to client sides;
5) Remote Frame Rate, Remote image size and Remote Quality are the
parameters of the client side. ①When the server’s image size is set as
“704*576(12fps)”, the three items are no effect, and client’s parameters will
be the same with server. ②When the server’s resolution is set as others
(except “704*576(12fps)”), if Remote image size is set as “Same as Rec”,
Remote frame rate (fps) and Remote Quality are
no effects, the client’s parameters will be the same with server;
6) Variable digital rate table:

2.2.2 Group Setup
Note:
If you set a camera into several groups, only the last setup is available.
【Selected Group】Select group number.
【Selected Cameras】Select the cameras that the work mode of which are
the same in a group. Cameras include local board card and IP module.
【Pre-Event Record】Select the start time of record when there is an alarm.
When Hybrid NDVR system is in Motion Detect mode or Sensor Detect mode, it can
record video before the alarm is trigged.
【Post Record Time】Select the end time of record when there is an alarm.
When the system is in Motion Detect mode or Sensor Detect mode, it can record
video after the alarm end.
【Record Days】This section allows users to determine how long the record
data of each camera should be kept in the system. The maximum duration for online storage is 120 days. Users can select an exact number of days, or select “auto”
mode. If select “auto”, system will auto-delete the
60
Hybrid NDVR Server Manual
recorded data of the earliest days when there is no enough space.
Note:
When there is no enough space of HDD, system will delete the record data
according to the length of saving time of each camera. E.g.: there are four cameras,
the 1st camera saves 2 days, the 2nd camera saves 5 days, the 3rd camera saves 10
days, and the 4th camera we set “auto” mode. If there is enough space, the 4th
camera’s record data will save in HDD, while there are no enough space, system
will delete data automatically. If the 4th camera’s record data has been saved more
than 10days, system will delete the 4th camera’s data. If the 4th camera’s record
data has been saved less than 10 days, but the 3rd camera’s data is more than 10
days, system will delete the 3rd camera’s data. So, even if you set the 3rd camera’s
record data saving 10 days, the data that is saved less than 10 days become
possible. System will delete the record data from the earliest date.

Appendix E: How to Use 3G
Function
For a MT camera supports 3G function, you can enable its 3G function in our
Hybrid NDVR software by checking the box in front of Enable 3G.
The steps to config 3G function are as below:
First of all, forward 3G server port to your router if you want to use 3G
function in WAN. The port is 6000 as default. You can change it to others.
The second is to visit the MT series IP camera via IE. Go to Network Set>Basic Set and you will get the following interface. Fill the Hybrid NDVR IP in the
blank of Center URL on the bottom right. You can fill either LAN IP or WAN IP here.
But if you hope to use 3G function in WAN, you have to fill in the WAN IP. Please
note the Center Port NO. should be the same with the 3G Server Port you set in
the Hybrid NDVR server.
Note:
Don’t forget to check the box after “Auto Connect”. Otherwise, the IP
camera will not be able to login the Hybrid NDVR server automatically.
