SpeedDome Ultra VII Operator's Manual
Setting the Automatic “Flip” Feature
Use the automatic (proportional) “flip” feature when you need to track someone who walks
directly under the dome and continues on the other side. You start the flip by moving the tilt
control to its lower limit and holding for a brief period. When the flip engages, the dome
automatically rotates 180°. You may then continue to track the person as long as the tilt
control stays in its lower limit. Once the tilt control is released, the dome resumes normal
operation.
The dome is initially installed with the automatic flip feature disabled. In this situation, the
dome stops when the tilt down reaches its lower limit.
Changing the Automatic Flip Setting
1. Select Pan/Tilt/Zoom/Sync Opts from the Dome Configuration Menu.
The highlight bar appears on the Proportional Flip setting.
2. Change the setting.
• Select On to enable the flip feature.
• Select Off to disable the flip feature.
The default setting is Off.
3. Select Exit. The Dome Configuration Menu appears. Continue with What To Do Next

Adjusting the Zoom Stop Settings
The SpeedDome Ultra VII includes a 22X optical zoom camera with 11X digital zoom
capability. The maximum possible zoom is 242X. Zoom stop settings define how the zoom
function is partitioned. Depending on the current zoom level, the camera will either stop at
the first zoom stop setting or continue to the maximum zoom setting. The following example
explains how zoom stop settings work.
The default camera settings are 33X for the first zoom stop setting and 88X for the maximum
zoom setting. If the current zoom level is less than 33X, pressing Zoom In continuously
causes the zoom to stop at 33X. If the zoom level is 33X or greater, pressing Zoom In
continuously causes the zoom to stop at the maximum zoom setting of 110X. The second
zoom stop remains in effect until the zoom function is reduced to less than the first zoom stop
setting (33X) and the zoom button is released for one second or longer. To achieve higher
zoom levels, change the maximum zoom setting.
2X is the margin of error for the zoom stop settings.
Changing the Zoom Stop Settings
1. Select Pan/Tilt/Zoom/Sync Opts from the Dome Configuration Menu.
2. To change the first zoom stop, continue with step 3. To change the maximum zoom
setting, continue with step 5.
3. Move the highlight bar to 1st Zoom Stop X. Change the setting.
• Select 22 to set the first zoom stop to 22X magnification.
• Select 33 to set the first zoom stop to 33X magnification.
The default setting is 33X.
4. To change the maximum zoom setting, continue with step 5. Otherwise, continue with
step 6.
5. Move the highlight bar to the Max Total Zoom X setting. Change the value of the
setting.
• The values for the setting are: 44, 66, 88, 110, 132, 154, 176, 198, 220, and 242X
magnification.
The default setting is 88X.
6. Select Exit. The Dome Configuration Menu appears. Continue with What To Do Next
on page 2-7.

SpeedDome Ultra VII Operator's Manual
Configuring the Line Lock Setting
Use the Line Lock setting to prevent vertical rolling or adjust the appearance of overlay text
on color monitors.
If you experience problems with vertical video rolling when switching multiple cameras to a
single monitor, enabling the Line Lock setting phase locks the video with the AC power line.
All cameras connected to the same power supply will be synchronized. This synchronization
prevents the video from rolling vertically when cameras are switched.
With the Line Lock disabled, the appearance of text displayed on color monitors may be
improved. However, the video will no longer be phase locked with the AC power line. Video
may roll vertically when switching between cameras.
Changing the Line Lock Setting
1. Select Pan/Tilt/Zoom/Sync Opts from the Dome Configuration Menu.
2. Move the highlight bar to Line Lock. Change the setting.
• Select On to enable the line lock. This phase locks the video with the AC power line
to prevent video rolling.
• Select Off to disable the line lock. This stops the phase lock, but may improve the
appearance of text displayed on color monitors.
The default setting is On.
IMPORTANT
Changing the Line Lock setting is not immediate. The dome must reinitialize
(reset) for the change to take place. When the configuration utility is exited,
the following prompt appears:
DOME MUST RESET TO
CHANGE LINELOCK MODE.
•
•
RESET DOME NOW?
NO
If you do not want to reinitialize the dome, select No. Changes to the
Line Lock setting will not take effect.
If you want to reinitialize the dome, select Yes. Changes to the Line
Lock setting will take effect when the dome finishes the reset.
3. Select Exit. The Dome Configuration Menu appears. Continue with What To Do Next
on page 2-7.
Configuring Pan, Tilt, Zoom, and Synchronization Options

Configuring the Freeze Frame Setting
If you need to maintain a static image when calling automatic functions, such as presets or
patterns, use the Freeze Frame setting. This prevents the display of the dome movement and
lens adjustments from being displayed on-screen while the preset or pattern is being sought.
When the Freeze Frame setting is enabled, the scene currently displayed on the monitor will
be preserved (frozen) on-screen until the pattern or preset is ready for display. The image
then switches smoothly to the new scene. You may want to use this setting if using a digital
video recorder.
For example, if the dome is installed in a lobby of a busy building, you may want to program
presets that show different areas in the lobby. Figure 2-1 shows a sample floor plan for the
lobby.

If Freeze Frame is disabled, each time the dome points to a different preset, you will see the
dome’s movement to the new scene, as well as any lens adjustments that are required. For
example, if the dome is currently pointing at Reception Desk, and the preset number assigned
to the Entry is selected, you will see a blur of motion as the dome quickly pans past other
areas in the lobby before focusing on the Entry scene.
If Freeze Frame is enabled, the current scene is displayed on-screen until all dome
movement and lens adjustments are complete. For example, the Reception Desk scene will be
frozen on-screen until the dome completes the movement and lens adjustments necessary to
display the selected preset. When the adjustments are finished, the Entry scene is
automatically displayed.

Adjusting White Balance Settings
White balance is normally compensated for by the automatic white balance gain control. In
some lighting conditions, you may need to manually adjust the red and blue settings for
optimal viewing.
When Automatic White Balance is enabled, the red and blue setting values are based on
feedback from the camera. When Automatic White Balance is disabled, the camera uses the
red and blue setting values to control the white balance. When Automatic White Balance is
first switched from On to Off, the red and blue values displayed are based on the current
feedback from the camera. The red and blue values range from 0 to 511. Changes occur in
increments of 5.
The following chart illustrates the red and blue settings relationship to white balance.

Working with AGC and Open Shutter Settings
The SpeedDome Ultra VII dome provides settings for compensating for low-light scenes in
color: Automatic Gain Control and Open Shutter. Automatic Gain Control (AGC) amplifies
the video signal in scenes with minimal light. Many low-light scenes result in picture noise.
As gain is increased, the picture noise is also amplified.
When AGC is enabled, the camera automatically adjusts the gain setting value. When AGC is
disabled, no gain is applied to the video signal. This may make the video appear darker on the
monitor.
The gain setting for the camera differs from the maximum gain (Max Gain) setting available
on the Camera Functions menu. The Max Gain setting is an upper limit for how much gain
can be increased when AGC is enabled. The trade-off between picture level (brightness) and
noise may be adjusted by setting the Max Gain value. Lower values for Max Gain setting
may result in a darker picture with less noise. Higher values for Max Gain setting may result
in a brighter picture with more noise.
In addition to the AGC settings, you may also adjust the Open Shutter settings to improve
dome performance in low light conditions. For more information, continue with
Understanding How Advanced Shutter Settings Improve Low-Light Performance.
Understanding How Advanced Shutter Settings Improve Low-Light Performance
The camera dome supports the ability to view color images from extremely low-light
situations. This feature is called Open Shutter and is only in effect during low-light situations
where an image would not be obtainable otherwise. It does not affect the camera performance
in normal or bright light situations.
When the Open Shutter is enabled and the scene illumination is too low to obtain a clear
image at the normal video rate, the camera collects luminance information from multiple
fields. As it does so, the current video information is retransmitted until new information is
available from the camera. Under these conditions, moving objects will appear blurred, and
still images may appear blurred, choppy, and with more static than video obtained under
normal lighting conditions.
The Shutter Limit value sets the video update time in fractions of a second. Depending on the
lighting conditions, the video information may be updated more frequently, but no slower
than the limit set.
Figure 3-1 illustrates a Shutter Limit of 1/4.

In this example, the dome receives information about the color of the traffic light. While the
light is red, the image is relatively static. With the shutter limit set to 1/4 second (250
milliseconds), updated red light information is transmitted at 1/4-second intervals. When the
light changes from red to green, updated light color information becomes available. The
dome must now transmit information about the green light. This update occurs as soon as the
green light information is available. This may occur before the 1/4-second interval elapses. In
this example, the light changed to green after 180-milliseconds. Thereafter the green light
information is transmitted at 1/4-second intervals until new light color information becomes
available.
If the light were to change from red to green halfway through the field integration interval
(125 milliseconds), it may appear that both the red and green lights are lit simultaneously.
This situation is illustrated in Figure 3-2.

Adjusting the Shutter Limit sets the update time used to maintain the image quality. If you
want to videotape an incident in low-light conditions, you may find that tape quality is not
acceptable. To ensure that the videotape quality is acceptable for possible prosecution
purposes, you may want to test the Shutter Limit settings under the expected lighting
conditions.

Configuring Alarm Actions
IMPORTANT
When operating on Manchester networks, the dome can be programmed to respond to any of
the four available alarm inputs. However, the dome cannot transmit alarm input states to the
host controller. If transmitting the alarm state to the host controller is required, the alarm
device must be wired directly to the host controller.
The dome provides four alarm inputs. By connecting alarm devices—such as smoke alarms,
twilight sensors, or motion sensors—to these inputs, you can enhance the usability of your
video surveillance system. You can further improve your video surveillance by assigning a
dome action (a preset or pattern) to start whenever an alarm input changes from normal to
abnormal.
When Set Alarm Actions is selected from Alarms/Areas/Home/Presets/PZ screen, the
following screen appears:

input state changes.
Alarms can be processed internally by the dome, externally by the controller, or both. You
may choose to send changes in the input state to the host controller. If the changes in input
state are sent to the host controller, the host actions have higher priority than the associated
dome actions.
Note: An active internal alarm only resets when the input state changes to “normal.” A
manual reset is not available.

SpeedDome Ultra VII Operator's Manual
Configuring Normal Input States for Alarms
IMPORTANT
Some controllers allow the normal input states for domes to be specified at the controller.
These controllers include VM96, AD matrices with AD2083-02A code units or AD168
matrix with the AD168CCM or AD2083-02A code unit. Do not use both the dome
configuration utility and the controller to assign the normal input states. Use only the dome
configuration utility or the controller to assign the normal input states.
The normal input state for an alarm is the state that the device maintains when an alarm is not
occurring. For example, you have a smoke detector connected to a dome input. Under normal
circumstances, the smoke detector should not be detecting smoke. When smoke is detected,
the alarm input changes states (from open to closed) and an alarm is issued.
To configure the normal state for the alarm, select Set Alarm States from the
Alarm/Areas/Home/Presets/PZ screen. The following screen appears:

Setting the North Position
Direction Indicators permit you to understand the approximate pointing position of the dome
to an established reference point. This reference point is called “North” and may correspond
to magnetic north (if it is known) or some other landmark or fixture. When the dome is
initially installed, “North” defaults to a pre-defined position (0° pan/tilt). You may program
the “North” position to be any point along the dome's pan axis (also called azimuth).
For more information about Direction Indicators, see Chapter 5.

Programming Area Boundaries
If the dome is installed in a location where you can see numerous departments or other
identifiable objects, you might want to consider programming area boundaries. Areas are
programmed start- and end-points of a camera's field of view. Each area is a part of a circular
viewing area that extends around the dome.
For example, Figure 4-1 represents the floor plan of a break room. The room includes a main
entrance, tables with chairs, vending machines, lockers, and an emergency exit. Areas have
been programmed around the fixtures in the room. As shown in this example, areas can be
different sizes.

The ending point of one area is the starting point for the next area. The ending point of the
last area cannot go past the starting point of the first area. In this example, the area that
includes the vending machines cannot extend past the starting point of the area that includes
the emergency exit. If your controller supports areas, these are separate from the areas you
can program with the dome. You should not use both the controller and the configuration
utility to define areas.
The zoom level also affects how large areas appear. When you zoom in to an area, the area
may appear to be small. When you pan the dome, area boundaries may appear to be close.
However, if you zoom out, the area appears to be larger. When you pan the dome, the area
boundaries appear further apart. With this in mind, it will be easier to establish area
boundaries if the zoom level is small than if the zoom level is large.

SpeedDome Ultra VII Operator's Manual
Establishing Privacy Zones
Privacy Zones are “masked” sections of the dome’s viewing area. These masks prevent
operators of the surveillance system who do not have access to the dome password from
viewing these designated zones. Each zone has four sides, and the zones may overlap to form
irregular shapes. The Privacy Zones move in relation to the dome pan/tilt position. In
addition, the apparent size of the Privacy Zone adjusts automatically as the zoom level is
adjusted. Up to eight Privacy Zones may be established for a dome.
Privacy Zones are useful for high security areas. For example, you might establish a Privacy
Zone around a safe’s combination. However, you could view people approaching or opening
the safe.
When Privacy Zones are active, the dome's firmware automatically disables text
transparency. For additional information about text appearance, see Chapter 5.
In addition, the appearance of the configuration menus changes slightly when Privacy Zones
are active. Both the first and last lines of the menus will appear in enlarged text when Privacy
Zones are active. The menus change to one-sized text if Privacy Zones are hidden or deleted.
To program Privacy Zones, select Privacy Zones from the Alarms/Areas/Home/Presets/
PZ screen. The following screen appears:

The circled arrows represent the target area on the screen for creating the Privacy Zone.
Normally, this target area remains in the center of the screen. Using the Pan/Tilt control
moves the target area by panning or tilting the dome. If the dome reaches its maximum tilt
position, the Privacy Zone may still be established in the upper part of the display. When this
occurs, the arrows move relative to the movement of the Pan/Tilt control until the top of the
display area is reached.

SpeedDome Ultra VII Operator's Manual
The boundary points on the Privacy Zone are selected by pressing Zoom. Once a boundary
point is selected, the arrows “blink” until the target area is moved to a valid area. Once the
target moves to a valid area, the arrows stop blinking. If you move the target more than 90degrees from a selected point, the arrows begin to blink again, indicating that the boundary is
too large.
If you attempt to establish a boundary point while the arrows are blinking you will receive an
error message: Zone is Too Small or Zone is Too Large. If this happens, you must start
programming from the beginning. Pressing Focus Far returns you to the Privacy Zone
programming screen.
If you attempt to program more than eight Privacy Zones, the following message appears:
Maximum Allowed Number of Zones Defined
Pressing Focus Far returns to the Program Privacy Zones screen. To program a new
zone, you must delete at least one of the eight existing Privacy Zones. See Removing or
Hiding Privacy Zones on page 4-16.
IMPORTANT
Areas of the Privacy Zone may be exposed during rapid pan / tilt movements of the dome. To
compensate for this limitation, you may want to program the Privacy Zone to be 20 to 25%
larger than the area you want to mask.
Programming Privacy Zones
1. Select Alarms/Areas/Home/Presets/PZ from the Dome Configuration Menu.
2. Select Privacy Zones.
3. The Program Privacy Zones screen appears. Select Add Privacy Zone.
4. Use the Pan/Tilt control to position the arrows over the boundary point. Press Zoom to
create.
5. Repeat step 4 to create boundary points 2 and 3.
Tip: Remember, if the arrows are blinking, you are not in a valid target
area. Only select a point if the arrows are not blinking.
6. After the third boundary point is created, the fourth boundary point is automatically
calculated. The new Privacy Zone appears on the screen. To program additional Privacy
Zones, repeat steps 3 through 5. When finished, continue with step 7.
7. Select Exit to return to Alarms/Areas/Home/Presets/PZ screen.

Removing or Hiding Privacy Zones
If you made an error during programming or no longer require Privacy Zones, individual
zones or all Privacy Zones may be deleted. To temporarily remove the Privacy Zones, you
may disable their appearance by changing the Hide All Zones setting to Yes.
To delete individual Privacy Zones, you must adjust the position of the arrows to the area of
the screen where the zone is recognized by the firmware. If multiple Privacy Zones are close
together or overlap, the arrows blink, indicating that the selection is not allowed. Figure 4-4
illustrates Privacy Zones that are close together.

Configuration Menu appears. Continue with What To Do Next on page 4-20.
Programming Presets
If you need to view specific places routinely, you should program presets. A preset is a
programmed video scene with automatic pan, tilt, zoom, focus and iris settings. Once
programmed, entering the number and pressing a button on your controller automatically
calls up the preset. In addition, presets may be assigned to alarm actions or as the “home”
position for the dome. As many as 96 presets, whose positions are saved in the dome’s
firmware, may be programmed.
VM96 and AD matrices installed as RS-422 and SensorNet networks support “virtual views.”
This means that the pan, tilt, zoom, focus, and iris settings are stored within the controller, not
the dome. You cannot use the “virtual views” that you define on those systems as the home
position or an alarm action. You must use the presets programmed using this utility.
AD168 matrices with an AD168CCM control code module support Manchester, RS-422, and
SensorNet networks and provide 64 “virtual views.” All other AD matrices support
Manchester and 64 dome presets or, through the use of an AD2083-02A code unit, RS-422
networks and provide 16 “virtual views.”

Performance Notes
The following considerations should be made when using the SpeedDome Ultra VII camera
dome in a Manchester environment.
Using Auxiliaries
The dome provides four connections for auxiliaries. When used on a Manchester network,
Auxiliaries 1 through 3 are supported. Auxiliary 4 is not supported.
Alarm Inputs
When operating on a Manchester network, the dome can be programmed to respond to any of
the four available alarm inputs. However, the dome cannot transmit alarm input states to the
host controller. If transmitting the alarm input states to the host controller is required, the
alarm device must be wired directly to the host controller.

Setting Left and Right Scan Limits
Scan Limits allow you to set left and right boundaries for use with the Auto Scan, Frame
Scan, and Random Scan functions. If the scan limits are not set, the dome pans continuously
to the right when these functions are activated.
IMPORTANT
You must program the Left Scan Limit setting before programming the Right Scan Limit
setting. This procedure erases any previously programmed Right Scan Limit setting.
To program the Scan Limits:
1. Select the camera number assigned to the SpeedDome Ultra VII dome.
2. Use the pan/tilt control to position the dome’s pointing direction to the Left Scan Limit.
3. Enter Set Preset 92 to save the setting.
4. Position the dome’s pointing direction to Right Scan Limit.
5. Enter Set Preset 93 to save the setting.
Activating Auto Scan
Auto Scan allows the dome to continuously pan between the left and right scan limit settings.
When reaching the right scan limit, the direction is automatically reversed. If no scan limit
settings are programmed, the dome pans to the right continuously.
To activate the Auto Scan:
1. Select the camera number assigned to the dome.
2. Enter Go To Preset 99.
The Auto Scan runs until stopped by selecting the camera and entering Call Preset 96.
Note: Entering a pan/tilt or lens command also stops the scan.

Random Scan pans between the left and right scan limits for random periods between 1 and 9
seconds, then pauses for periods between 1 and 9 seconds. If the scan limits are not
programmed, the Random Scan pans to the right for random periods between 1 and 9
seconds, then pauses for periods between 1 and 9 seconds.
To activate the Random Scan:
1. Select the camera number assigned to the SpeedDome Ultra VII dome.
2. Enter Call Preset 97.

supplement any purchase or lease agreement (the "Equipment Agreement") between Customer and
Sensormatic Electronics Corporation ("SEC"). By accepting receipt of, or by using, such Software, the
Customer agrees to be bound by the terms of this Software License Agreement (the "License Agreement").
The term “Software” means all computer programs, instructions, data and databases, in any form or on any
media, supplied by SEC (or its suppliers) to Customer and all current and future versions, revisions, updates,
upgrades and new releases thereof. Except as otherwise provided in this License Agreement, the terms and
conditions of the Equipment Agreement apply to the Software, the related technical and user manuals
("Documentation") and the license provided herein.
2.
License. SEC licenses the Software and the Documentation to Customer, for the license fee(s) set forth (or
included in the product prices set forth) in the Equipment Agreement and subject to the terms and conditions
of this License Agreement. The license is non-exclusive and is limited by the terms of this License
Agreement. Customer may not transfer the license except to a party to whom the equipment is transferred
and then only with the written consent of SEC. The Software and Documentation are being licensed and not
sold or leased to Customer. SEC or its suppliers who have authorized SEC to sublicense certain of the
Software and Documentation retain ownership of the Software and Documentation. The Software is being
licensed for use only on (i) a single computer (A) owned or leased by Customer and identified in the
Equipment Agreement or (B) otherwise identified in the Documentation as compatible with the Software, or
(ii) a back-up machine if and so long as such computer becomes temporarily inoperable.
3.
Term. The term of the license is perpetual, except that it will terminate automatically if Customer sells or
otherwise disposes of the Software or its related equipment or Customer breaches any provision of this
License Agreement or the Equipment Agreement. If the license terminates, SEC will have the right to take
possession of all copies of the Software and Documentation in the possession of Customer or to require
Customer to destroy all such copies and certify such destruction in writing to SEC.
4.
Ownership. Customer agrees and acknowledges that (i) SEC (or its suppliers) is the sole owner of the
Software and Documentation (including all copies thereof, in whatever form or media, delivered to or made
by Customer) and all patent, copyright and other intellectual property rights with respect thereto and (ii) the
Software and Documentation constitute valuable trade secrets, confidential information and proprietary
properties of SEC and its suppliers. Accordingly, Customer agrees that it will have no rights in the Software
or Documentation other than those granted under this License Agreement and agrees to abide by the
restrictions on its use of the Software and Documentation set forth in Section 5 of this License Agreement.
5.
Use and Copies. Customer may use the Software and Documentation only in conjunction with the other
equipment identified in the Equipment Agreement, as part of the access control, closed circuit television or
other security system being acquired from SEC and for Customer's internal business purposes. SEC will
furnish the Software to Customer solely in object code form.
Customer may make up to 2 copies of the Software solely for back-up and archival purposes. Customer will
not remove or modify the copyright and other proprietary notices and legends of SEC and its suppliers
contained in the Software and Documentation and will reproduce all such notices and legends on all copies
of the Software made by Customer. Customer may not make copies of the Documentation, but may obtain
additional copies of the Documentation from SEC at its established rates. Except as permitted above,
copying of the Software and Documentation is forbidden.
S-2
SpeedDome Ultra VII Operator's Manual
Customer will not sell, assign, sublicense or transfer this license or sell or otherwise transfer the Software or
Documentation (or any portion thereof) to others. Customer will maintain the Software and Documentation
in confidence and not disclose any data or other information contained in the Software or Documentation to
any party, except for Customer's employees and agents who require access to the Software for the purposes
of Customer's internal business and who use it in accordance with the terms of this License Agreement.
Customer will not use the Software for the provision of time-sharing services to others. Customer will not
modify the Software or decompile, disassemble or otherwise reverse engineer the Software and will not have
the right to create derivative works of the Software, including, without limitation, translated or localized
versions of the Software. Customer will not export or re-export the Software or the Documentation or any
portion thereof without appropriate United States or foreign governmental licenses.
Customer will implement appropriate measures, such as the requirement that employees and others permitted
access to the Software enter into appropriate non-disclosure agreements, to satisfy its obligations hereunder
and, generally, will treat the Software and Documentation with the same degree of care and confidentiality
which Customer provides for its own confidential information. Customer acknowledges that it may be held
legally responsible for any copyright infringement or trade secret violation that is caused, in whole or in part,
by its failure to abide by the terms of this License Agreement. Since unauthorized transfer, use or disclosure
of the Software and Documentation would diminish their value to SEC and its suppliers, who would have no
adequate remedy at law if Customer breaches its obligations under this License Agreement, SEC and its
suppliers (who are direct and intended beneficiaries of this License Agreement) will be entitled to injunctive
relief, in addition to such other remedies and relief that would be available to them in the event of such a
breach.
6.
Limited Warranty; Limitation of Liability. The provisions of the Equipment Agreement respecting
maintenance and warranty will not apply to the Software or the Documentation, unless specifically stated
otherwise and agreed to in writing by both parties. SEC's sole warranties with respect to the Software and
Documentation are that (i) SEC has title to the Software and Documentation and/or the right to grant
Customer the license set forth in this License Agreement and (ii) the magnetic media on which the Software
is recorded is free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use. SEC's sole obligation under
this warranty will be to replace any defective media returned to it free of charge. The period of this warranty
will be 12 months from the date of the Equipment Agreement (the “Warranty Period”).
EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 6, SEC DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE OR THE DOCUMENTATION OR THEIR
OPERATION OR USE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE. SOME STATES
DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION
DOES NOT APPLY IN SUCH STATES. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS,
AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
SEC AND ITS SUPPLIERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND FRANCHISEES WILL IN NO EVENT BE
LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT
DAMAGES (FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION OR PROFITS OR OTHERWISE) SUFFERED
BY CUSTOMER, ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS OR ANY OTHER PERSON ARISING OUT
OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR THE
DOCUMENTATION, OR THE MAINTENANCE OR SUPPORT THEREOF, EVEN IF THEY HAVE
BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SEC neither assumes nor authorizes any
employee, agent or franchisee to assume for SEC any other liability in connection with the license, use or
performance of the Software or Documentation.
Software License Agreement
S-3
Customer is solely responsible for the selection of the Software to achieve customer’s intended results, for
the conformity of the computer on which the Software is run to SEC’s specifications or requirements and for
the maintenance of such computer in good working order and repair. SEC’s suppliers do not warrant the
Software, assume any liability regarding the use of the Software or undertake to provide any maintenance,
support or information regarding the Software.
7.
U.S. Government Restricted Rights. The Software and Documentation are provided with restricted rights.
Use, duplication or disclosure by the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions as set forth in subparagraphs
(c)(1)(ii) of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software Clause of Department of Defense Federal
Acquisition Supplement (DFARS) 252.227-7013 or in subparagraph (g)(3)(i) of Federal Acquisition
Regulations (FAR) 52.227-14, Alternate III, as applicable.
8.
Indemnity. SEC will defend and hold Customer harmless from any claim, action, suit or proceeding brought
against Customer to the extent that it is based on a claim that the use of the Software, as such, in accordance
with this License Agreement and not as a result of the combination thereof with any other article, computer
software or process, constitutes an infringement of any United States patent or copyright or the violation of
any trade secret, if SEC is notified thereof promptly after its commencement and is given control of the
defense thereof and any negotiations for its settlement and full cooperation by Customer.
SEC will pay all damages and costs awarded against Customer in connection with any such claim, except that
SEC will not be liable for any amounts paid under any compromise or settlement made without its consent.
If the Software is either claimed or held to infringe or violate any patent or copyright, SEC may, at its sole
option and expense, and Customer will permit SEC to, procure for Customer the right to continue using the
Software or modify it so that it becomes non-infringing or replace it with a non-infringing counterpart. If
neither of such alternatives is available on terms which are reasonable in SEC's judgment, Customer will
return all copies of the Software and Documentation in the possession of Customer to SEC, at SEC's request,
and SEC will refund a reasonable portion of the license fees paid by Customer to SEC. This Section 8 sets
forth SEC's entire liability regarding infringement and the like.

SpeedDome Ultra VII Operator's Manual
SPEEDDOME ULTRA VII
GLOSSARY
Alarm Actions
The assigned responses for the dome when inputs change from normal to
abnormal states. The dome may run a Preset, Pattern, or have no assigned action
for each of the four dome inputs. The dome may also send alarm states to the
host controller for processing. See also Input and Normal Input State.
Apple Peel
Pattern
The default pattern of the SpeedDome Ultra VII. This pattern consists of three
complete revolutions starting at the ceiling line and tilting down 30° each
revolution.
Areas
Programmed start and end points of the dome's field of view around its pan axis.
Each area is a part of a circular viewing area that extends around the dome. The
areas can be different sizes. Up to 16 areas can be programmed for the dome.
Automatic “Flip”
feature
Allows the dome to automatically turn 180-degrees when the camera tilts to its
lower limit and stays in that position for a brief delay. When the dome flips
(rotates), the camera starts moving upward as long as the tilt control is kept in
the down position. Once the control is released, the tilt control returns to its
normal operational mode. The flip feature is useful when you need to track
someone who walks directly beneath the dome and continues on the other side.
This is also referred to as “proportional flip.”
Automatic Gain
Control (AGC)
Allows for the amplification of the video signal in scenes with minimal ambient
light. Many low-light scenes result in picture noise. As gain is increased, the
picture noise is also amplified. When AGC is enabled, the value of the gain
setting is based on feedback from the camera. When AGC is disabled, the
camera uses the value set for the manual gain setting. The trade-off between
picture level and noise may be adjusted when AGC is disabled. See also Open
Shutter.
Configuration
Utility
The text overlay menu system used for setting dome features. The utility is
accessed using a keystroke combination. The utility provides settings for
camera functions, zoom, alarms, text display, and password protection.
Direction
Indicators
Provides for the display of the camera dome's pointing direction based on the
North setting. This information appears on the top line of the monitor when the
setting is enabled. In addition, the tilt setting appears on the left side of the
monitor. By default, North is set to 0° Pan/Tilt. This setting may be changed
using the Set North Position setting. See also North Position.
Dome
Information
A Dome Configuration Menu choice that provides essential information about
the SpeedDome Ultra VI camera dome if service is required. When you view
this screen, you can determine the dome type, mnemonic, software version,
serial number, and manufacture date. The information on this screen cannot be
modified. See Dome Statistics.
Dome Statistics
A feature that identifies the operating statistics for the dome. The information
displayed represents either runtime in seconds or number of occurrences. See
Dome Information.
Dome Status
Information
Relates to zoom, focus, and iris settings. You may choose to have this
information displayed on the monitor when any of these settings change. If
display of status information is enabled, it appears in the upper left corner of the
monitor.
Flip
To automatically rotate the dome 180° from its current pointing position.
See Automatic “Flip” feature.
Freeze Frame
A feature that allows the current image to be maintained on-screen when
switching to a preset or pattern. This function prevents the display of the dome
movement and lens adjustments while the preset or pattern position is sought.
Once the preset or pattern is ready for display, the image switches smoothly to
the new scene. See Preset and Pattern.
Home Position
The default position to which the dome returns after an assigned period of
inactivity passes. The default position may be a Preset, Pattern, or No Action.
Input
A connection point on the dome that enables the system to monitor Input
Devices. There are four inputs available for the dome.
Input Devices
External devices that provide information about the condition of system
components connected to the inputs on the dome. Typical input devices include
door contacts, motion detectors and smoke detectors.
Line Lock
Allows you to phase lock the video with the AC power line. When line lock is
enabled, it prevents vertical video rolling when switching multiple cameras to a
single monitor. If text appears slightly tinted on color monitors, disabling the
line lock may prevent this problem.
Name
Information
Relates to the display the dome name, the area where the dome is pointing, the
name of the preset or pattern that is running, and alarm names. The display of
each type of name setting can be enabled or disabled. When the display of
camera or area names is enabled, the information appears on the screen
continuously. Preset, pattern, and alarm names appear only while they are active.
Normal Input
State
Describes the expected state of a device connected to one of four dome inputs.
The normal state may be open or closed. When a device is not in its normal
input state, an alarm is issued. Transmitting the dome input states to the host
controller is not supported with Manchester.
North Position
User-definable setting that may correspond to magnetic north or some wellknown landmark. Used to approximate the camera dome's pointing direction
when Direction Indicators are enabled.
Glossary-2
SpeedDome Ultra VII Operator's Manual
Open Shutter
Setting used to improve the quality of video obtained in extreme low-light
situations. When the Open Shutter setting is enabled, low-light information is
collected over multiple fields based on the Shutter Limit setting. As a result,
video may appear blurred or choppy in extreme low-light situations. This setting
does not effect camera operation in normal lighting situations. See also
Automatic Gain Control (AGC).
Password
Protection
Prevents unauthorized users from starting the Configuration Utility. The
password may be from 1 to 8 characters long.
Pattern
A series of pan, tilt, zoom and focus movements from a single programmable
dome. Up to 3 patterns may be programmed for the dome.
Peel
Button found on some controllers that initiates the Apple Peel pattern.
See Apple Peel Pattern.
Preset
Programmed video scene, based on a specific pan, tilt, zoom, and focus settings.
Up to 96 presets may be programmed for the dome. For domes running in a
Manchester network, only 64 presets may be programmed. See also “Virtual
Views”.
Privacy Zones
Masked areas of the camera dome's viewing area. These masks prevent operators
of the surveillance system from viewing these designated zones. Each Privacy
Zone has four sides, and the zones may overlap to form irregular shapes. The
Privacy Zones move in relation to the dome pan/tilt position. In addition, the
apparent size of the Privacy Zone adjusts automatically as the lens zooms in or
out. Up to eight Privacy Zones may be established for a camera dome.
Shutter Limit
Setting used to define the maximum exposure time for the Open Shutter setting.
The values for the setting range from 1/2 to 1/60 for NTSC, and 2/3 to 1/50 for
PAL. The default setting is 1/4 for NTSC and 1/3 for PAL.
“Virtual Views”
Similar to Preset. However, virtual views store the pan, tilt, zoom, focus, and iris
settings within the controller, not the dome. Virtual Views cannot be used for
the Home Position or Alarm Actions.
White balance
Adjustments in the color hue (red and blue) gains for a camera so that true white
appears white in the image. It is normally compensated for by the automatic gain
control. In some lighting conditions, you may need to manually adjust the red
and blue settings for optimal viewing. When Automatic White Balance is
enabled, the camera measures the image and automatically adjusts the red and
blue settings to balance white. When Automatic White Balance is disabled, the
camera uses the values set for the red and blue settings to balance white.
Zoom
To adjust the magnification of the camera lens to make an object appear closer
(larger) or farther away (smaller). See also Zoom stop factors.
Zoom stop
factors
Defines how the zoom function is partitioned. The first zoom stop setting may
be 22X or 33X. The default first zoom stop setting is 33X. The maximum zoom
stop setting may be 44, 66, 88, 110, 132, 154, 176, 198, 220, or 242X. The
default maximum zoom stop setting is 88X.
