10.4 Setting Transmission Server
Video server management software has data transmission function. If you want to
activate this function for the video signals of a channel, select option of [Start
Transmission Service] (under which transmission server parameters all refer to address
parameters of the server that this management software belongs to). Number of channel
users refer to the maximum of users for connection, and number of system users refers to
the total amount of users that connect with this server. After setting these parameter, the
manage software has to be closed and they will come into effect after restarting the
software. It is necessary to note that the setting of local ports and multi-switch address
should not conflict with other program. The picture is showing as following:

Auto alarm cleanup: clean up alarm by system after alarm happens.
Time of auto alarm cleanup: system clean up alarm at the setting time after alarm
happens.
Auto save link status: save the current connection status between client-side
software and video server. Client-side software will read the last saving connection
status when restart next time.
Auto reconnection after abnormally disconnection: when video server connected
by client-side software abnormally disconnected, system will automatically require
connecting again, even without manual operation.
10.7 Local Linkage

a shortcut for setting other channels, which has the same parameters as current channel.
It is also applicable in setting of PTZ and alarm probe parameters. In following text, we
won’t explain it again.
11.2.1 Compression Parameter
Video server use dual stream technology, namely, the compressing parameters of
network transmission and remote recording stream can be set separately. See picture as
follows:

Image format: it refers to the initial size of zoom image. It is divided into three
format: CIF(352×288), 2CIF(704×288) and 4CIF(704×576). 2CIF is also called
HalfD1, and 4CIF is also called FullD1. Our products can support all of the three
formats while some only support CIF format, so please distinguish it out from
technical parameters of relative products. Meanwhile, the modification on
resolution ratio will come into effect only after saving the configuration and
restarting video server.
�
Stream type
type: it is divided into combined(Video & Audio) stream and video
stream. Combined stream refers to combined code of audio and video. Under
this option both audio and video will be transmitted; if choosing video stream,
then there is only video while no audio.
�
Constant bit rate and varent bit rate: Constant bit rate refers that only image
quality will be taken into account instead of bit rate during coding, i.e., at the cost
of sacrificing code rate; varent bit rate refers that according to code rate limitation
set by user image quality will be decreased sometimes (eg.: violent motion of
images), i.e., at the cost of sacrificing resolution rate. Quality factor coefficient
range: 4-31.
�
It is recommended that if the bandwidth is enough, the quality can be set as 4; if
the bandwidth is limited, please set bit rate according to actual bandwidth.

Alarm delay: it is duration time for voice of alarm output if there is alarm.
11.2.2 Motion detection
Motion detection contains two parameters setting: ‘Motion detection area’ and ‘Motion
detection time’. Motion detection function can come into effect only when detection area is
partitioned in ‘Motion detection area’, option
is selected,
and valid period of time is defined.
‘Motion detection area’ can make a plan of detection range on monitoring image. It
can be a part or the whole monitoring screen. For different environments, detection
sensitivities can be set. ‘Motion detection time’ can be defined as detection periods
individually on seven days in a week.
If you check option
, when alarm of motion detection
happens in this channel, it can trigger channel recording.
If you check option
, when alarm of motion detection
happens in this channel, it can trigger channel capture.
If you check option
,
when alarm of motion detection happens in this channel, alarm output end of video server
will output alarm signal.
