remote access. Install the BASE software at the remote site after installing the DVR.
CAUTION: If an older version of BASE software is installed on your computer, you should uninstall the
older version first.
NOTE: It is highly recommended to install the BASE software with the same or higher version than the POST system
software version.
1. Insert the installation CD.
2. Run the setup file (.exe) in the IDR Setup/Base folder, and install the software following the instructions.

Appendix 4 — Video Analytics
For the video analytics detection to work properly, you must install cameras properly and set up video analytics rules
following the instructions.
Camera Installation
Location
 Indoors: Check the lighting condition.
– Low Light: Degrades the performance of the video analytics detection.
– Bright Light: See the Lighting section below.
 Outdoors: Check the weather condition.
– Rain & Snow: Makes it difficult to distinguish objects from rain and snow and can cause false detection. It is
recommended to disable the video analytics function if an alarm is associated with the detection.
– Light: Swarms of bugs and birds which are attracted to the bugs can cause false detection. It is recommended to
position lights as far as possible from cameras by using a bracket if possible.
Lighting
 Sunlight: If the camera is pointed directly at the sun, the video analytics function will not work.
– Do NOT point cameras directly east or west which can blind the camera at sunrise or sunset.
– Extend the camera’s sun shield if possible to increase protection from direct sunlight and protect the lens from
dust and weather.
 Artificial Light: If the camera is pointed directly at a light, the video analytics function will not work.
– If lights are in front of the camera, avoid pointing the camera directly at the light or light reflected from shiny floors.
Camera Position
 Height/Angle: Greater heights with steeper angles provide more pronounced sensation of movement in the detection
area. The camera must be mounted higher than people’s heads.
– Example: Looking down a fence line makes it easier to see when an intruder has crossed into the protected zone
and thus to detect intrusion.
 Object Size: If an object size is too big or too small, the object cannot be recognized by video analytics detection.
Refer to the images below for the detectable ratio of the object size.
– Tripwire, Loitering, Left/Removed Object Detection: The object has to be large enough but not too big to be
detected (bigger than 1/4 and smaller than 3/4 of the screen vertically and horizontally). If the object size is too
big on the screen, place the camera farther from the object or use a shorter lens. Do NOT use digital zoom in order
to adjust the object size.
– Face Detection: The face must be large enough for eyes, nose and lips to be analyzed (the larger the face, the
better the detection performance). If the face size is too small on the screen, place the camera closer to the object
or use a longer lens. Do NOT use the digital zoom in order to adjust the object size.
NOTE: The detectable object size on the screen might be different from the ratios shown below depending on
the camera installation environment. Check the proper image size for detection on the screen in the current
environment and adjust the camera position accordingly.

 Floor: If the floor is made of glossy or transparent material and reflects light to the camera, place the camera as
parallel as possible to the floor.
 Windows: If windows reflect sunlight or lights into the camera, place the camera as parallel as possible to the windows.
Camera Settings
 Focus: The focus settings for night might be different from the settings from day. Check and adjust the focus to
be optimized for both day and night.
 BLC: If the camera has an automatic backlight feature, disable the feature.
 Shutter Speed Control: If the camera has a slow shutter feature where the shutter speed is automatically reduced
at night, disable the feature.

of blocks by dragging a mouse on the screen. The
Erase button works the same way except that it erases
blocks.
 Loitering Time (sec): Set up the length of time for
the detection to last and to be recognized as an event.
When any objects in motion are detected in the detection
area for the specified loitering time, the system considers
it as a video analytics detection event.
Left/removed object detection setup: Select Single event from the Event type list, and select Left/removed object
detection from the Event 1 list. Clicking the Edit button displays the Left/removed object detection setup screen.
 Name: Enter the event name. The name will be
displayed in the rule list.
 Draw, Erase: Click the button to enable blocks on
the screen to set up a detection area. You can select
one block at a time by clicking each block or an area

Erase button works the same way except that it
deactivates blocks.
 Required time for detection (sec): Set up the length
of time for the detection to last and to be recognized
as an event.
When an object is separated from another object in the
detection area and left or removed during the preset time,
the system considers it as a video analytics detection
event.
Dual Event
When video analytics detection satisfying the settings of both Event 1 and Event 2 occurs in order, the system considers
it as a video analytics detection event. Refer to the Single Event section above for details about each video analytics
detection setting.
Face Detection
When any face is detected, the system considers it as a video analytics detection event.
NOTE: The face detection function cannot work with other functions of video analytics simultaneously. If you want to
add a face detection rule, you must delete other rules from the rule list.

In the above text-in data, you can find that the comparison value is located at 17th (Unit price, $ mark will be ignored
automatically), 28th (Qty) and 40th (amount) characters (including spaces) from the left. In this case, you can enter
“17”, “28” and “40” in each Tab size box, and enter the tab symbol “^” in the Value box (^ for Unit price, ^^ for Qty,
and ^^^ for amount).

{
DWORD sum = 0;
BYTE *p = (BYTE*)msg;
while (len > 0) {
sum += DWORD(*p++);
len--;
}
return int(sum%100);
}
void AddCheckSum(char* msg)
{
int len = strlen(msg);
int checksum = GetCheckSum(msg, len);
sprintf(msg+len, "%02d", checksum);
}

Appendix 11 — Troubleshooting
Following are some frequent problems and solutions related to the DVR. Read this section before calling the dealer
or installer.
Problem: There is no image on the screen.
Solution: Check the camera cables. If the background of the DVR system is blue, something is wrong with the camera
cable or power.
Solution: Video might not be displayed on the monitor when connecting a monitor after turning on the system. Reboot
the DVR.
Problem: How do I access Windows?
Solution: To protect unnecessary system crashes, Windows is blocked. See Appendix 1 — Accessing Windows.
Problem: I have upgraded the software. How do I reinstall it?
Solution: There are three steps to reinstall the software.
1. Uninstall the old version.
– Go to My Computer. Select Control Panels and the Add/Delete program, and then select the DVR model.
– The Delete button will be activated. Click Delete.
2. Install the new software.
Problem: The logo appears and then freezes. Sometimes the screen is black.
Solution: There is a problem with the Main Board. Reboot the DVR. If it happens often, call your dealer or installer.
Problem: The Display setup is not correct error message appears and opens up in the Windows mode
when OK is clicked.
Solution: The DVR requires 1024x768 resolution and true color. This message will be printed on the screen when
the requirements are not met. Access Display Setup and change the values for the DVR and then reboot the system.
Problem: I am trying to change the display setup, but I cannot choose True color. The resolution
keeps jumping to a lower value.
Solution: Some VGA cards require a few steps. Set up the resolution first. Do not worry about the color palette. Then
access Display Setup and choose True color. If it happens again, the VGA card does not support the 1024x768 resolution
and True color. Change the VGA card.
Problem: The USB-serial converter has been connected to the DVR for the POS installation, however,
the dialog box asking the device driver appears.
Solution: When connecting the POS device to the DVR using the USB-serial converter, connect the converter while
the DVR is operating. If not, the converter driver may not be operating properly and display the dialog box asking the
device driver during the system boot. However, it does not have any effect on the DVR operation. Remove the converter,
and reboot the DVR and then connect the converter again.
