KEY FEATURES
Enhanced Graphical User Interface (GUI)
The VXM4 menu structure and on screen display is presented in a simple to
use and logical GUI format.
Enhanced Recording
TRIPLEX
OPERATION
Any operation performed on the VXM4 will not affect the recording including
local playback, local set-up, multi user remote viewing and playback, remote
set-up and archiving
Two Way Audio
4 audi
o inputs are supported which can be assigned to any video channel. Live
and recorded audio can be monitored remotely over the internet and remote
audio transmission back to the VXM4 is supported.
Remote Connection
Software is provided to allow remote connection to up to 4 VXM4 units in one
session. Depending on user level, full VXM4 control is available over the internet
as well as the ability to remotely configure the VXM4. Alarm outputs on the
VXM4 can be remotely triggered over the internet.
Back-up
Recorded footage (including audio) can be archived to a USB memory stick,
CD or DVD. Playback software is embedded with the backup files and
the backup also contains the system event log and backup log for full
traceability. Save your setup to USB to make future installations even more
simple and time efficient.
VA-KBDPRO+
Remote Control Keyboard
The VA-KBDPRO+ is a compact tri-axis
PTZ controller which can control all
features available on the VXM4 digital
recorder. The VA-KBDPRO+ features
built-in telemetry control and a 3 axis
joystick, which enables an operator to
easily control the pan, tilt and zoom
functionality of any camera connected
either directly or via the VXM4.

Comprehensive recording setup
Recording can be scheduled, alarm activated or motion activated. For each
type of recording, frame rates, image quality and audio recording properties can
be adjusted, per hour, per day and for each individual channel. The VXM4 also
has a panic recording feature (from the front panel or external input) which
overrides all other recording settings to provide the best quality recording in the
event of an emergency
Telemetry control
PTZ
Full telemetry control is available from the front panel or remote connection and
a wide number of speed dome protocols are supported. Protocols can be set
individually for each channel and telemetry speed can be adjusted to suit
particular speed domes.
Extensive monitor support
The VXM4 has 3 main monitor outputs (Composite, VGA and S-Video) which
can be used simultaneously. Support is also provided for up to 4 spot monitors
and each spot monitor output can be programmed in the VXM4 setup.
Live display
The VXM4 displays single or multi screen images and also has several
sequence modes (standard and user definable)
Configuration backup
All configuration settings on the VXM4 can be saved to USB memory stick or a
PC file remotely. The saved data can then be uploaded to other VXM4 units
allowing rapid deployment where more than one VXM4 is being installed.
Email Support
The VXM4 supports can send emails to specific users to notify events such as
alarm, motion detection, hard drive failure etc.
Jog Shuttle
The VA-MAT162 is a compact matrix
system which can switch 16 video inputs
to 1 or 2 monitor outputs. It is controlled
either from the front panel or via RS-485
by a VA-KBDPRO+ PTZ keyboard. As
well as individual channel to monitor
selection, the VA-MAT162 has a user
defined sequence mode with adjustable
dwell time and options to exclude
particular channels from the sequence.
The VA-MAT162 can be used with
multiple VXM4 digital recorders to form
the basis of complex surveillance system,
with up to 256 speed dome cameras and
16 VXM4 16 channel DVRs, all controlled
centrally by a single VA-KBDPRO+

PROGRAMMING THE VXM4
Programming the VXM4B is simple thanks to
the intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI).
The menus and setup steps are presented in
a logical manner allowing detailed
configurations to be set up with ease.
WhenÊsetup is complete, the configuration
can be saved to local USB memory stick and
transferred to other VXM4B units for rapid
deployment where many units are being
installed.
By Hand
The GUI setup menu is
clearly structured and easy
to navigate from the VXM4
front panel.
USB Stick
Preferred configurations can
be saved to USB stick and
subsequently uploaded to
other units which require an
identical configuration.
Once the installation is finished on site, it is
still possible to view and program virtually all
aspects of the VXM4B setup from a remote
LAN or Internet connection. This allows
diagnostics and additional configurations to
be carried out onÊthe VXM4BÊwithout having
to make a site visit. Configuration files can
also be uploaded remotely to the VXM4B,
ideal for situations where a VXM4B requiresÊ
particular settings reloading after a factory
reset.
Remote Programming
Mouse Control
Virtually all VXM4 parameters
can be programmed, saved and
uploaded over a LAN / WAN
connection.
The unit offers the additional
benefit of mouse control, making
it quicker and easier to navigate
through the on screen display
menu and search facilities.
REMOTE CONNECTION
REMOTE
CONNECTION
The software included to connectÊ a VXM4B over a Local Area Network or the Internet providesÊ access to virtually all
functions available from the front panel of the VXM4, such as live viewing and playback, archiving of live or historic footage
andÊVXM4 configuration.
With additional features such as multiple VXM4B connections, two way audio transmission, and the ability to remotely
trigger VXM4B alarm outputs, the remote client software can easily be configured to form the basis of a simple remote
monitoring station.
VXM4B settings can be uploaded to a local PC file and can then be used to configure additional VXM4B units allowing
rapid remote deployment of multiple VXM4Bs in the field.

RECORDING
SETUP
The intuitive setup of the VXM4 gives complete freedom to define
exactly the right recording parameters to suit individual
applications.
Each individual channel can be configured on a weekly, daily and
hourly basis to record either by schedule, alarm input or motion
detection. In addition, each channel can be configured on a weekly,
daily and hourly basis for image resolution, frame rate, audio
recording and image quality.
This flexibility allows recording time to be maximised without
compromising playback quality.
A typical example might be a VXM4 configured to record
continuously at lower frame rates during the day and then at higher
frame rates on motion detection during the night.
In anÊemergency, the panic button or external panic input will
override all other recording settings with specific panic recording
settings which, again, can be defined to suitÊany particular
application.
Hard Drive Monitoring
The VXM4 uses SMART technology to check the status of the hard
drives. Each hard drive constantly monitors its own operating
parameters – if any abnormalities are detected, the hard drive passes
this information to the VXM4 which will notify the operator either by
alarm output or email.
SMART monitoring ensures that potential data loss is avoided by
predicting hard drive failure before it happens thus allowing
preventative action and backups to be taken.
Remote Viewing from
your Mobile Phone
Watchdog
The watchdog is an independent part of the VXM4 system that
monitors the system firmware every 5 seconds. If the watchdog
detects any problem with firmware operation, it will automatically
reboot the VXM4 to ensure that recording operation is not
interrupted.
The VXM4B range is
compatible with QeepsTM A revolutionary new service
that allows you to connect to
your DVR from your mobile
phone, reliably, from
anywhere in the world
If a power cut happens on site, the watchdog also ensures that the
DVR restarts cleanly and continues recording once power has been
restored, and without any user intervention.
