VIDEO TIMELINE
DV-IP HD
The DV-IP HD includes a unique colour-coded, soft key menu structure and onscreen Graphical
User Interface (GUI). Context sensitive, the menu structure always represents the area of the menu
the user is in, allowing them to quickly select the options and settings they need without having to
trawl through menu pages and options. The colour coded buttons displayed on the monitor match
those on the IR Remote Control, whilst control can also be conducted through an attached USB
Mouse or supported Keyboard (KBC1 / KBC2).
The Video Timeline feature is a new intuitive interface for the control and navigation of playback
video. With control via the IR Remote Control or supported Keyboard, the colour-coded on-screen
display matches the buttons on the Remote Control or Keyboard allowing the user to control the
video forward or backwards in incremental steps of seconds, minutes, hours, days and weeks.
MAPS
af
t
Users can now navigate around their CCTV installation using graphical maps. Selecting the relevant
camera from the map will instantly connect the user to that cameras image stream. With the ability
to load bespoke map images and floor plans to reflect their installations, the Maps feature is ideal for
quickly identifying camera locations around a site or CCTV network.
Point&go provides the user with easy to use, fast, accurate telemetry control via an attached
monitor. With no need for a telemetry keyboard, users are able to use Pan & Tilt control of a
Dedicated Micros Oracle Dome simply by clicking an area of the monitor. The camera will instantly
respond, positioning the selected area in the middle of the screen, ideal for tracking movement
through a scene.
ePTZ
dr
Dedicated Micros ePTZ uses an advanced image ‘interpolation’ algorithm that reveals detailed
information that simple pixel-stretching digital zoom commands cannot. Users can operate ePTZ as
they would Analogue Zoom - moving around the scene and zooming in / out using the IR Remote
Control or a supported Keyboard - even on static analogue cameras. Electronic Zoom can be
carried out on both live and playback video. Providing the ability to retrospectively control and view
an image, a great aid in post-event analysis.
Absolute Positioning
Using Camera Selection Maps and the unique Absolute Positioning capability of Dedicated Micros
Oracle Dome cameras, an operator can, with one mouse click, select a camera and send it to view
an area of the site (Pan and tilt). Absolute Positioning is ideal for following someone from camera to
camera around a site and greatly increases event response time, particularly for operators unfamiliar
with a site layout and camera location.

af
t
DV-IP HD
Installing the DV-IP HD
The DV-IP HD supports up to 8 connected Video Inputs via the 75Ω BNC connectors. Connect
cameras to the video inputs, starting from input 1.
dr
8 and 16 channel variants have two rows of connectors providing video input and loop-through
support. It is possible to use either the top or bottom row of connectors; For consistency and quality
of installation, DM recommend one row is used for video inputs and the other for all required loopthrough connections onto other pieces of equipment e.g. monitors and matrices.
Note: Remember the last piece of equipment in line must be terminated.
Double termination (not removing termination from the unit) will result in the 1V peak to peak video
signal being crushed. This can reduce the colour rendition of the video source and may cause the
video signal not to be detected by the last piece of equipment i.e. the signal is no longer 1V peakto-peak.

Advanced Installation
Connecting Storage devices
Images are recorded to the internal hard disk for instant playback and searching by the operator.
The capacity of the internal disk effects the amount of images and time period that can be recorded.
The internal hard disk is a temporary storage device as images are overwritten after a set period.
dr
If images need to be held for a longer time period, external storage is required. The SATA ports on
the rear of the unit are used to connect to external storage devices. The unit can support multiple
external hard disks. To maintain an effective SATA link, the length of all cabling from the unit to the
connected device should not exceed two metres.
The unit’s operating system will continue to utilise the internal hard disks if the external hard drive
encounters a problem.
Dedicated Micros Managed Storage Expansion units
A DM Managed Storage Expansion unit is connected via the SATA port. A Managed Storage unit
provides high capacity, environmentally managed storage in a single box. Disk temperature is
maintained at a constant level and the disk management system ensures only disks in operation are
spun. Both of these features help extend drive life.

Primary Dial Profile
This is the IP address or name of the initial host that the unit will
transmit an alarm message to.
It is possible for the alarm message to be transmitted via the
Ethernet network or a dial up connection.
If the unit is unable to contact the primary host, an alternative
route can be identified via a secondary host. If there is only one
alarm receiving IP address, you must enter the details in both the
primary and secondary connection settings.
It is possible to select a separate dial profile for the secondary
host.
This is the public IP (or domain name) for a unit connected to
the Internet via a NAT Router or Firewall. This field should be left
blank if NAT is not used e.g. a private network.
This field allows the RVRC to connect to the unit through a router
that is using port forwarding e.g. if the video server does not
appear on port 80 (HTTP), to the external network.
This is the reference name/ID that will be presented to the RVRC
viewing application. It should therefore have some significance to
the Operator.
This will send an alarm report when the unit starts up. Any system
resets will be identified.
This must be enabled for the unit to automatically connect on
alarm.

of the playback image.
The timeline allows navigation from the time and
date currently shown in the Date/Time Display
window. The scale changes to correspond to the
time period chosen for investigation i.e. if a scale
of one hour is selected it will be possible to move
up to one hour prior, or one hour in advance of
the displayed time (unless that selected time
has not been recorded yet). For example, with a
scale of one hour, click ‘10’ on the left side of the
