Calculating memory requirements
One of the most frequently asked questions is: how much hard-drive space will the recordings use?
There's no simple answer to the question because many factors play a role. These include:
·
·
·
·
·
The number of cameras (AK)
The number of frames per second (FPS)
The image size (KB)
The amount of compression
Whether recording is permanent or motion-triggered
In order to get a rough idea of memory requirements in the case of permanent recording, use the
following rule of thumb: You can usually assume the image size (KB) to be about 25-30 kilobytes.
AK * FPS * KB = kilobytes/second
This will give you the approximate number of kilobytes needed per second recorded. Multiplying by
3600 gives you an idea of the number of kilobytes needed per hour.
Please note that go1984 uses intelligent ring storage management to contribute significantly to efficient
memory management. In many cases, it makes sense in any case to use motion-triggered recording,
which reduces memory requirements substantially.

6.2.2
go1984 User manual
Basic setup
Memory management
go1984 includes efficient ring storage. This enables you to optimize available hard-drive space allocation
to the cameras, thereby ensuring that there is always enough memory space available for new
recordings. go1984 is able to delete the oldest recordings automatically after the allotted memory has
been used up. You can also select individual recording directories per camera.
The following criteria specifically apply for automatically deleting scenes. If more than one criterion is
relevant, the first criterion to be met will apply in each case:
the used disk space exceeds
this value:
in this case, you can allocate each camera a disk space quota.
When this option is activated, the oldest scenes are automatically
deleted when the quota is exceeded.
the scene is older than:
when this option is activated the scenes for each camera are
automatically deleted when the scene is older than the duration
specified in days.
disk space is less than:
the oldest scenes are automatically deleted when a quota for the
remainder of the disk space is exceeded. This value applies across
all the cameras which are recording on the same partition/hard
drive and if changed, it is automatically set for all the cameras on
this partition/hard drive.

Basic setup
6.2.3

Scene generation
go1984 can aggregate recordings made during a certain interval to so-called scenes. This makes it
much easier to find them later. The concept used is quite simple. Any scene that has already begun will
be continued if less time than defined in the field "Time interval" has passed. If more time has passed, a
new scene is generated. You can also define that a new scene should be generated as soon as the scene
file becomes larger than the value entered into the field "File size" or if the current scene is longer than
the value entered into the field "Duration".
The following criteria specifically apply for generating scenes. Once again, if more than one criterion is
relevant, the first criterion to be met is decisive:
no motion was detected for
this time interval:
if the time between two recordings triggered by motion detection
is less than specified here, the scene already begun is continued.
But if this time is exceeded a new scene is generated.
The same applies if the recording is triggered by a signal other
than internal motion detection (e.g. by a camera’s digital input
signal or by an http event).
the size of the scene file is
greater than:
a new scene is generated if the current scene exceeds the size
specified here.
the duration of the scene is
longer than:
if the scene duration specified here is exceeded a new scene is
generated. If scenes are recorded by default only when there is a
detected motion, the scene generated in this case will usually
cover a longer period than specified under this point.

Pre-/Post alarm
Usually, motion-triggered recording begins the instant a motion has been detected. However, it is
sometimes desirable to extend the recording by a few seconds before or after the event. To do so,
simply enter the desired number of seconds into the appropriate fields and then activate the function
using the corresponding button. go1984 uses your computer's random access memory (RAM) for this
feature. In order to avoid too much memory being reserved, you have the option of restricting the size
to a maximum value.

Access time period
Access to the recordings can be limited individually per user in the user management. Among other
things, you can permit full access, no access, or access to a specified time period. This is where you can
define the time periods valid for this camera.
Afterwards, simply select which time periods are available for the user in the user management.

Export
Recordings are saved in a proprietary format. However, the scenes recorded may be exported in AVI
format or individual images in JPEG format.
When you are exporting to AVI format, you will be offered the codecs available on your system to
choose from when it comes to video compression.

Basic setup
6.3
34
Motion detection
go1984 includes high-performance motion detection based on an optimized image difference process.
When motion detection is triggered, the so-called "Motion" signal is activated for this camera. This
signal can be used, for instance, to begin recording, to launch an FTP upload or to trigger an alarm.
The image is split for this purpose into 8x8 pixel segments which are each analyzed for motion. This
means that with a resolution of 640x480 pixels, for instance, 4,800 segments must be analyzed for each
individual image.
The threshold specifies what the minimum percentage of segments needs to be where motion is
detected in relation to the whole image so that a motion is indicated. For instance, in the case of a VGA
resolution of 640x480 pixels with a threshold of 1.5%, the figure will be 72 segments.
You should reduce the threshold if you want the motion detection facility to be more sensitive.
Motion areas are highlighted in the live image with red squares. As soon as the actual value exceeds the
specified threshold, the motion signal is triggered. The specified threshold (yellow) and current actual
value (green or red) are graphically represented by two colored bars in the program to make
adjustments easier for you. The actual value bar changes from green to red if a motion has been
detected. The circle in the “Motion” field also turns red.
You'll be shown the live image from the camera, with motion areas being marked by red rectangles. As
soon as the actual value surpasses the specified limit value, the motion signal is triggered. The specified
limit value (yellow) and the current actual value (green or red) are graphically represented by two
colored bars in the program in order to make adjustment easier for you. The actual value bar changes
from green to red if a motion has been detected. The circle in the "Motion" field also lights up in red.

go1984 User manual
Basic setup
The analyzed segments are sorted in ascending order in the bar chart according to detected motion
intensity. The maximum motion share indicates which percentage is relevant to the analysis. The
segments before this are excluded.
If the motion intensity of individual segments (red bar) now exceeds the green line in the relevant area
(yellow), the detected motion is highlighted in the relevant segment (red rectangle in the live image).
The green line originates from the factors “Noise suppression” and "Max. motion share”.
The reduction in noise suppression along with the increase in the max. motion share therefore result in
a higher level of sensitivity in terms of motion detection.

You will also find the following set-up options:
Analyze only every xth frame
motion detection is highly processor-intensive due to the image
decompression required.
Delayed detection
delay in seconds until the motion signal is triggered. This may, for
instance, be a sensible option for an e-mail alert in order to send a
relevant image.
Idle signal after
duration in seconds until the idle signal is triggered. For further
information, refer to the “Event management” section.
Motion value is greater than
This control enables you to avoid motion detection being triggered
by rapid, extreme lighting changes such as the interior lighting
being switched on or auto-iris adjustment by cameras etc.
Brightness is less than
Some cameras tend to produce noisy pictures under bad lighting
conditions, which can lead to motion detection being triggered.
This control enables you to turn off motion detection for images
generated at less than the specified basic brightness.
Threshold: Automatic
go1984 always tries to provide the best settings for the segment
threshold independently.
Threshold: Manual
analysis of each individual segment without the above-mentioned
extended, adaptively operating settings being taken into
consideration for the segment threshold. This option is
recommended only in exceptional cases.

Notification
go1984 can use various channels to notify you in case of an alarm. They are:
·
·
·
·
·
·
Playing an audio file via a sound card
Sending an e-mail with or without an image attached
Uploading one or several images via FTP
Sending an image to the go1984 client via UDP Broadcast
Launching an external program
Calling a telephone number and playing an audio file (ISDN card required)
Note:
All notification types need to be activated first. Clicking on the options field of the respective
option switches on the corresponding function.
If the desired option is grayed out, there are some settings that must be provided beforehand because
the option makes no sense without them. For instance, the option "Telephone call" makes no sense if a
telephone number has not been provided.

Sound
go1984 can play a freely selectable audio file in .wav format via your sound card in case of a
notification. Simply choose the corresponding file using the dialog.
To prevent too many notifications from being sent, you can set a rest period. This means that only when
at least the specified time has elapsed since the last playback can the sound file be played again.
Please also refer to the general notes on activating notification functions in the section on notifications.

E-mail
In order to enable e-mail sending from go1984, a so-called SMTP server (see reference) first needs to
be specified. If this has already been done, you can continue here directly.
Select the entry "Notification" in the go1984 explorer. You can now enter one or several recipients
(separated by semicolons) into the field E-mail address. Adjust the subject line if you wish. The variable
"%cameraname%" is automatically replaced by the name of the camera triggering the alarm when an
e-mail is sent.
Once again you have the option to set a rest period which must elapse between sending two e-mails, by
clicking on the clock icon. Simply click on the clock icon and then set the rest period you want.
Please also refer to the general notes on activating notification functions in the section on notifications.
Note:
The Action button
is linked by default to the go1984 motion detection function. If you
want to send a meaningful image as an attachment when a movement is detected, you must
sometimes increase the “Delayed detection” value under “Motion detection” à “Settings”.
The delayed detection will obviously have an impact on recordings too. But you can balance out this
delay simply by increasing the pre-alarm value accordingly.

FTP
If you wish the images from a camera to be sent to an FTP server in addition to being stored locally,
complete the following dialog.
First, enter the login data for your FTP server:
FTP server
Domain name or IP of your FTP server, e.g. ftp.online.com
Port
FTP port, almost always "21"
FTP user ID
Username for logging on to the FTP server
FTP password
Password for logging on to the FTP server
FTP directory
FTP server subdirectory where you want the images to be saved
Passive mode
If your FTP server cannot be run in the active mode, select this option
Keep connection
After uploading an image, the connection to the FTP server is kept open. If
you prefer the connection to be shut, deactivate this option.
You can also choose to resize images before saving them on the FTP server. Activate this option and
define the new size of the image using the corresponding fields.
Finally, you can define under which names to save the file(s) on the FTP server:
Simple filename
The file name is the name you enter into the field
Datetime filename
The file name includes the time of day. The constant part of the file name
has to be enclosed in quotation marks. Formatting is carried out according
to the following key:
yyyy
Year
mm
Month
dd
Day
hh
Hour
nn
Minute
ss

Rotating number
filename
Enter the beginning of the file name into the field. A number is
automatically added onto the end of the name; it is increased by one after
each successful upload. After the counter reaches the defined value, it is
reset to 1. Older images are then overwritten.
Upload as "*.tmp" and
rename if finished
If you have problems uploading the files to your ftp server, you can have
the images uploaded with the extension ".tmp" at first. After the upload
has been successfully completed, the files are renamed to the "real" file
name.

The Action button
is linked by default to the "NewImage" signal (see also “Event management”
section). This means that the FTP upload is activated every time a new camera image is generated. In
this case too you have the option to set a rest period by clicking on the clock icon. This means that only
when the period specified between two transmissions to your FTP server has elapsed can a new upload
operation be launched. This then allows you to have the FTP upload operation simply carried out at a set

LAN-Broadcast
In the event of an alarm, go1984 can notify any users on the LAN via UDP Broadcast. If the go1984
client has been installed and is active, users will be notified about the movement detected on a camera
via popup and/or an acoustic signal.
Note:
The go1984 client should not be confused with the go1984 desktop client. Unlike the latter, it
is not suitable for permanent live monitoring via one or more cameras or for recording
images from them.
You can install the go1984 client on another computer by running the go1984 setup and only ticking the
"go1984 Client" option box.
The broadcast client can then be launched via the Windows Start menu.

go1984 offers you the option of launching an external program in case of a notification. In this case, the
image that triggered the notification can first be saved on the hard-drive. In this way, special tasks can
be carried out for which go1984 itself is not suitable.
To set up the feature, select the program you want to launch and the launch type. You can choose to
have the image that triggered the notification saved on the hard-drive first, and can freely define the
drive and the directory for this purpose.
Here, too, you have the option of defining a rest time by clicking on the clock symbol. A program is only

Clustermode
In the Enterprise edition of go1984 any cameras that have been integrated on a remote computer into
another go1984 Standard, Pro or Enterprise version can be added as “cluster cameras”.
This offers benefits in terms of:
· Network load: images can only be transmitted when a motion is detected; the camera on the cluster
client is almost in standby mode
· Performance: it may also be sensible to set up a cluster system for load distribution. The cluster
server or servers will then take over motion detection while the cameras on a central cluster client are
brought together.
A new cluster camera is created on the cluster client in the same way as adding an IP camera. This
means that you select the “IP cameras” option in go1984 Explorer. Then choose the camera "go1984
Camera" from the selection list.
Now specify the IP address or host name under which the go1984 cluster server can be accessed.
The next step is for you to give the camera a unique nickname which can be used for it in go1984.

go1984 User manual
Webserver
If the user manager is active on the cluster server you must enter a valid username/password
combination for authentication.
You must then enter the name of the cluster server camera in the “Camera” field which you intend to
access. You can also determine via the “Motion” parameter whether images should be transmitted
permanently (Motion = "0") or only when motion is detected (Motion = "1"). If you intend to transmit
the image in a different resolution or compression level to that of the original image due to a small
amount of bandwidth being available, you can set this via the parameters "Width" and "Height" or
"CompressionLevel". A compression level of "100" corresponds to the image’s original quality.

78
You can see in the screen below that no images are transmitted as long as there is no kind of movement
("0 fps"). The cluster camera is therefore almost in standby mode. The motion detection function can
now be deactivated. Then every relevant image transmitted is recorded.
Note:
A web server session is initiated on the cluster client for every active cluster camera. If the
cluster server being used is a Pro edition one, a maximum of two cameras can be operated in
this way. With a Standard edition server a maximum of one camera can be operated like this
(see “Editions” à "Webserver sessions").

go1984 User manual
Additional settings
You set the image record pause using the following sliders. The default setting is 200 ms, i.e. 5 images
per second (fps). In order to avoid increasing the network load and memory requirements
unnecessarily, you should in this case set the actual value required rather than the highest possible
value. In most cases, using higher image refresh rates hardly results in scenes with greater information
content.
As with many other sliders, you also have the option here to specify for your own convenience the value
you want in an additional window which opens when you double-click on [Pause between two frames].
Some additional information about the camera is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

You can choose to launch go1984 minimized. In this case, the application will not be visible at first. Only
the little go1984 program icon will appear next to the system clock. Double-clicking on the icon will
open the application interface. As a further option, you can set go1984 to be launched automatically
when Windows is started. If you are operating go1984 in service mode (see "Installation" section),
deactivate this option as the go1984 service is then automatically started. If you don't like the selected
standard skin, you can choose a different one.

SMTP server configuration
In order to enable e-mail sending from go1984, a so-called SMTP server first needs to be entered; this
only has to be done once. Outgoing e-mails are sent to this server and ultimately to the recipient. Your
provider can supply you with the settings required to configure the SMTP server. Alternatively, you can
obtain the information from your e-mail program (Outlook, Outlook Express etc.). A list of the most
common servers is supplied in the appendix.

go1984 User manual
Event management
Event management
go1984 includes a highly flexible event management option, which permits go1984 to be individually
configured. Various input and output signals are available. These signals can be supplied to go1984 by
cameras, schedulers or plug-ins.
Every input signal can be linked to one or more actions. The most important signals are automatically
linked to standard actions after go1984 is installed. For instance, motion detection is linked to recording
and notifications of the respective camera. However, you have the choice of changing these links.
The following output signals (Actions) are available (depending on camera type):
Output1,
Output2, ...
This output signal can be used to switch a camera's digital output (if available) on or off. It can be used
for applications such as controlling a door-opener, for instance.
Note:
An IP camera’s digital inputs or outputs are not supplied as standard. They must be explicitly
activated when required, in other words, set from "0" to "1".

Event management
The different input signals are grouped in the program's IO Manager. LEDs are depicted to the left of the
signals. The LEDs may indicate the following status:
Signal on
Signal off
Signal is deactivated and therefore not available (default setting for camera inputs and camera
outputs)
You can view the different signals from the cameras in the IO Manager under the "Event" entry. It also
shows you which signal has been linked to which action.

You can create links anywhere the mouse pointer changes to the following symbol:
Clicking on the icon with the right mouse key will open the links menu. The following example illustrates
the process.
Example:
An IP camera's digital input has been linked to a doorbell. Whenever a visitor rings the bell, the camera
is supposed to start recording. To set up this event, first choose a camera in the go1984 explorer and
then select the "Record" option.
The various settings available for go1984's recording function are shown. The Action button
is near
the bottom. The button is linked to go1984's internal motion detecting after installation. You can now
change this link, mapping it to the camera's digital input. Click on the button with the right mouse key
to open the menu. Afterwards, select "Input1" as an input signal, as shown in the diagram. After you've
defined this setting, the camera will start recording as soon as the contact at the camera's digital input
is closed.
Note:
Please note that a single input signal can also be linked to several different actions.
In the example above, for instance, you could have the same signal trigger e-mail notification in
addition to recording. Furthermore, a camera's signals are also available for all other cameras. In the
example, the input signal from a single camera could be used to control the recording function of all
cameras.
