LTC 8780 Series Data Converter Units
The LTC 8780 Series are accessory units that convert the
Allegiant system's Bi-Phase control code into RS-232, or
converts RS-232 back to Bi-Phase code. This provides
the capability of transmitting the control code over
conventional RS-232 transmission mediums such as
phone modems, fiber optics, microwaves, etc. The unit
will accept the Bi-Phase control code generated by an
Allegiant main CPU bay, a LTC 8568/00 Signal
Distribution unit, or an output from a LTC 8569,
LTC 8570 Series or LTC 8571, LTC 8572 Series Code
Merger unit.
The LTC 8780 Series are also designed to perform the
Satellite selector functions in an Allegiant Satellite
system configuration. In addition, using its integral
signal distribution capability, the LTC 8780 Series can
function as a remote distribution unit providing 15
separate outputs. As a distribution unit, wiring can be in
either a “star” or “daisy chain” configuration and each
output is capable of driving 8 receiver/driver loads at up
to 1.5 km (5000 ft) away using 1 mm2 (18 AWG)
shielded-twisted pair (Belden 8760 or equivalent).
Refer to separate datasheet for complete specifications.
LTC 8714 Series Connectors
LTC 8781 Series Time/Date Converters
Interface Data Port: One (1), 9-pin Sub D connector
provides data interface to COM 2 port of main Allegiant
CPU bay or to expansion port of LTC 8715 Series. Twometer (6-ft) interconnect cable supplied. Keyboard Data
Ports: Eight (8), 6-contact non-powered Allegiant series
keyboard cable connectors. An LTC 8557 Series
keyboard hookup kits are required for each Allegiant
LTC 8555 series keyboard to be interfaced to LTC 8714
Series. For the IntuiKey Series keyboards, a separate
power pack can be used.
The LTC 8781 Series are accessory units that decode the
Allegiant system's encoded time/date information
generated on the Bi-Phase control code line and convert
it into an RS-422 format using the GPS format. This time/
date information can be used to interface into external
time/date inserter products (such as the Kalatel
KTS-53-16), which are designed to be synchronized via
a GPS signal. The electrical and mechanical
specifications are the same as the LTC 8780 Series
units.
LTC 8715 Series Connectors
LTC 8782 Series Code Translator Units
Interface Data Ports: Five (5), 9-pin, Sub D connectors
provide data interface to COM 2 port of main Allegiant
The LTC 8782 Series Code Translators are accessory
units that convert Bi-Phase code to other manufactures’
control codes, or convert other manufactures’ codes to
Accessories & Software Packages for the Allegiant | 7
Bi-Phase. Many of the most popular protocol codes are
supported, including Pelco, Vicon, American Dynamics,
Sensormatic, Kalatel, Diamond Electronics, and Javelin.
Fixed and variable speed codes are supported where
applicable.
The LTC 8782 Series Code Translators have four
independent outputs. Removable screw terminal blocks
are used for input and output connections. The Front
panel LEDs indicate the status of power, data receive,
and data transmit. The translator comes supplied in an
EIA 48 cm (19 in.) rack-mount adapter that can hold up
to three units.
Refer to the LTC 8782 series data sheet for complete
specifications.
LTC 8785 Series Code Converters
LTC 8785 Series units are designed for use in very old
Allegiant systems that have been upgraded to support
‘variable speed’ control code protocol. The LTC 8785
units are used to provide a source of 'fixed speed'
control code when the system is generating the new
‘variable speed’ control code preferred by the
AutoDome series of PTZ cameras. The LTC 8785 receives
variable speed control code from the Allegiant via its
LTC 8568/00 Signal Distribution unit and converts it into
appropriate fixed speed control code. The ‘fixed speed’
control code outputs from the LTC 8785 Series connect
to the older TC8561 Series receiver/drivers using the
existing field cabling.

LTC 8786 Data Converter Series
The LTC 8786 Series of data converters are designed to
convert Bosch “Receiver/Driver and AutoDome RS-232
Control Code Protocol” into Allegiant Bi-Phase control
code. These units are the preferred method for
transforming the single data output from a DiBos DVR
(or a similar device) into multiple control code outputs
for operating AutoDome cameras. Either “star” or “daisy
chain” wiring configurations can be used from each of
its 16 outputs. Using daisy chain, each output is capable
of driving 8 receiver/driver loads at up to 1.5 km
(5000 ft.) away using 1 mm2 (18 AWG) shielded-twisted
pair (Belden 8760 or equivalent).
Refer to the LTC 8786 series datasheet for complete
specifications.
LTC 8016/90 Bilinx™ Data Interface Unit
The LTC 8016/90 Allegiant Bilinx Data Interface unit is

Series cameras. Compatible with all seven Allegiant
Series matrix switcher/controllers, the LTC 8016
provides complete control of pan/tilt/zoom, auxiliaries,
and pre-position functions of Bilinx enabled AutoDome
Series cameras. In addition, complete programming of
Dinion Series cameras and AutoDomes via their onscreen menus is supported.
Bilinx technology also supports camera-generated event
reporting to the Allegiant. This allows remote alarm
inputs and motion event data to be sent by the camera
to the Allegiant without the need for additional wiring
between the camera site and the main control location.
In addition, the LTC 8016 is designed so that other BiPhase code generating products, like Bosch Digital
Videos Recorders, can be used with the unit for control
of PTZ functions and camera menu access over the video
cable.
The LTC 8016 is supplied in an enclosure compatible
with mounting in an EIA 48 cm (19 in.) rack, requiring
only a 1-U rack height. To support large systems, up to
31 units can be cascaded, comprising up to 496 Bilinxcompatible cameras.
The LTC 8016 can also be used to transmit Bilinx
communications over a number of video transmission
systems. Example devices include fiber optic links and
external balun devices that use CAT5 twisted pair cables
for video communication.

ADIM DVR Interface Software
ADIM is a powerful security and surveillance solution
that combines the robust features of the Bosch Allegiant
matrix switcher with the speed and quality of digital
video recording. This tightly integrated solution uses the
IntuiKey keyboard to control all cameras, monitors and
digital video recorders (see back for compatibility).
Reviewing an event has never been easier. The push of
a single button transforms the IntuiKey into a DVR
controller, allowing instant playback of video from the
current camera, for display on the CCTV monitor. Using
the joystick, one can easily fast forward or fast reverse
to review the recording. Furthermore, Bosch DVRs can
playback and record simultaneously, thus ensuring
uninterrupted recording. ADIM is a rugged, reliable, and
scalable solution, providing a true migration path for
digital recording. Expanding your system is as easy as
replacing a VCR. The ADIM solution uses stand-alone
digital video recorders and incorporates Bosch disk
arrays. ADIM is not restricted by network bandwidth, or
subject to single point catastrophic failures. ADIM
continuously monitors all DVRs for proper recording and
archiving, and status can be viewed or printed. In the
event of a DVR or Disk Array failure, ADIM will display a
message on the CCTV monitors. For added security,
ADIM provides automatic switchover to backup digital
video recorders and DVAS RAID 5 protected disk arrays
with hot swappable drives. In addition, ADIM logs events
and synchronizes the Allegiant and all Digital video
recorder clocks.
Refer to the ADIM datasheet for complete
specifications.

SFT-INTSRV Allegiant Integration Software
The SFT-INTSRV software CD contains three distinct
software packages that can be used integrate external
devices with an Allegiant system matrix switcher. Please
refer to the following sections for details:
Integration Server
The Integration Server is a versatile software package
used to integrate multiple systems that are not ordinarily
compatible with each other. These systems can include
Video Switchers, Point of Sale systems, Fire/Burglar
alarms, Access Control, or HVAC systems.
Devices can be interfaced using any of 3 different
methods, including a serial RS-232 connection, a digital
I/O card, or directly to an Allegiant Switcher via the
LTC 8059 Master Control Software program.
The Integration Server software is programmed to
recognize events as they occur in real time from one or
more systems, based upon one of the three integration
methods mentioned above. It then reacts to those
events by sending commands to another system or
systems.

Virtual Allegiant Satellite Application Software
VASA (Virtual Allegiant Satellite Application) is Bosch’s
strategic product that allows existing Allegiant
customers to transition gradually to pure IP
technologies rather than a total and instantaneous
replacement.
VASA acts as the integration bridge between an existing
Allegiant and the new digital based CCTV system (the
‘satellite’) that uses digital video encoders and
decoders. With VASA, the new IP technology is totally
transparent to the existing Allegiant users who continue
to use their IntuiKey CCTV keyboards for video switching
and PTZ control on classic analog monitors.
VASA supports the Allegiant LTC 8100 through the
LTC 8900 Series matrix switchers. In addition to PTZ
control, VASA provides auxiliary and preposition control
of the IP based cameras.
VASA improves the ROI on existing capital assets,
removes the need for training and reduces the risk for
adopting new technology by incrementally adding to the
system. The integration is seamless and the transition is
designed to be imperceptible.

Allegiant Satellite SDK
The Allegiant Satellite Software Development Kit (SDK)
is a fully supported set of libraries, documentation, and
samples targeted at PC-based application software that
is used to control third-party CCTV matrix systems or
manage IP-based digital video networks.
Since the SDK can be used to create customized
solutions for unique, specific problems, customers
looking to integrate an Allegiant matrix system with
products offered by other manufacturers is readily
accomplished.
For the thousands of existing Allegiant customers, it also
provides a bridge to integrate or expand their systems
with IP-based products gradually rather than a total and
instantaneous replacement.
When operating in an Allegiant satellite system
configuration, an Allegiant master generates switching
Accessories & Software Packages for the Allegiant | 11
and PTZ data that is typically used to control a remote
Allegiant satellite matrix. Using the SDK, the video
switching commands and PTZ data from the master
system are converted into an ActiveX interface allowing
developers to easily translate this information into
formats used to control other original equipment
manufacturer’s (OEM) systems. The SDK also supports
an ability to translate repetitive type Allegiant PTZ
commands to their indefinite equivalents, resulting in
reduced interface traffic and lower bandwidth demands
when controlling IP-based networks.
The level of integration available with the SDK results in
a robust interface that provides transparent operation
to the existing Allegiant operators. Operators continue
to use their existing CCTV keyboards for selecting video
and control of PTZ devices on the Allegiant monitors.
This type of solution improves the return of investment
on existing capital assets, removes the need for training,
and reduces the risk for adopting new technology by
incrementally adding to the system.
The SDK is compatible with all models of the Allegiant
Series switchers. In addition to video switching
commands and PTZ control, auxiliaries and prepositions
are also supported.
The SDK is supplied with five (5) sample applications.
Three (3) samples use C++ to demonstrate incorporating
the SDK in a Console, ATL, and MFC application. In
addition, samples using Visual Basic®, and
Microsoft’s®.NET Framework are included.
