INTRODUCTION ( continued )
1.2 Product Introduction
The DVR-3064 is an advanced vehicle video recorder. It can simultaneously display real-time images from
four cameras along with information data through the mobile video recorder directly onto your monitor. The
mobile DVR has four video channels which you can access either in the quad mode or single channel.
We use a hard disk device in this mobile recorder to store your images over a longer time. The recording
device has further already been tested for shock-proof and extreme temperature-proof durability in rugged
environments, with ventilation holes provided to lower the internal temperature for cooling.
The special design of the DVR enables you to easily retrieve the recording hosts inside, which are handy and
portable enough to carry anywhere you want and link up with PCs and TV monitors for direct display.
The DVR-3064 includes the Global Position System (GPS) which helps disclose a vehicle's location
information -- the GPS information can also be displayed by eMap Software to know about a car's exact
route. The DVR can also be connected to the car's information Black Box to access a vehicle's driving
speed , engine RPM, wheel turns, driving time periods, braking, signal lights, and so on, all of which data is
received and saved by the DVR. While searching for information, any important image you may want to save
can be stored via an SD card.
This mobile recorder provides all the above practical and useful features you can expect of it. It's your best
choice out of the entire range of mobile video recorders available. This multi-functional mobile video
surveillance product protects the safety of both the driver and the passengers.

1.5.6 Power Delay Connection
The diagram here illustrates the power delay connection structure. If a device needs to work with our
DVR, it needs to start operating after our DVR has begun operating. See the diagram below to help
you with the mobile vehicle video recorder's power delay connector on its rear panel.
Enter the mobile vehicle DVR's "MAIN MENU" page and choose the third item, "CLOCK / TITLE". Now
enter the "CLOCK / TITLE" page, and you will see two items, "DELAY ON" and "DELAY OFF". For both
these items, the default setting is "OFF". You can set the delay time of the relay by choosing one of the
following options.
DELAY ON: This entry sets the delay time of the function activation of the relay connector after the DVR
powers up.
DELAY OFF: This entry sets the delay time of the function activation of the relay connector after the ACC is
powered off. The relay connector will function as per the delay time you set by your chosen
option. After the relay connector's delay time duration is over, the relay connector will
automatically turn off, followed by the DVR. (The DVR which is connect with a cigar-lighter of a
vehicle for power supply will stop working when turning off the ignition.)
Note: The relay connector’s electric current range goes to a maximum of 30 amperes.
Note: Our "POST REC DURATION" function also sets the time as per any of the six options available, after
the ACC has been turned off. Please always be mindful of the fact that, if the time duration set for
either "DELAY OFF" or "POST REC DURATION" is longer than the other one, the DVR will wait for
the longer setting to end before shutting down.

1.8 Voltage Management
You can display the system - setting information after you press the "DISPLAY" button on the front panel. On
this screen you can see the battery voltage icons. Please consult the above diagram to know the battery
voltage status.
Between 10.4 volts and 16.1 volts, the battery is in the "Working" mode.
Between 11.3 volts and 15.2 volts, the battery is in the "Standard" mode.
Between 10.4 volts and 11.3 volts, the battery is in the "Low" mode.
Between 15.2 volts and 16.1 volts, the battery is in the "High" mode.
If the voltage is less than 10.4 volts, the battery is in the "Too low" mode", and the DVR will automatically
power off after 1 minute of beeping.
If the voltage is more than 16.1 volts, the battery is in the "Too high" mode, and the DVR will automatically
power off after 1 minute of beeping.
Note: 1. After the car motor is switched on ( ACC-On ) for 3 minutes, even if the voltage is too high or too low,
the DVR won't shut down, only beep.
2. When the car motor is switched off ( ACC-Off ), the DVR will power off, too, after 1 minute of beeping.

2.1 Basic Connection
Mobile Video Surveillance Solution
This is the mobile DVR, our video surveillance device for durable use in the vehicle. It's a
multipurpose, multi-source, multi-media device for monitoring your vehicle, pinpointing its
route and location, and recording and playing vital incidents related to it, in the interests of
vehicle security and welfare.
The mobile DVR provides advanced text insertion technology that is compatible with
mobile black boxes which record all the relevant details of driving. For example, all
information regarding the driving speed, engine RPM, wheel turning angles, driving time
periods, brakings, signal lights, and the GPS position can be retrieved from the black box
system. The data can be stored, recorded and transferred to a computer or to the mobile
DVR directly for data storage and retrieval to ensure a car fleet’s and/ or individual driver’s
quality performance.
The mobile DVR is compatible with the stand-alone GPS receiver, and it can also
configure and record a driver’s location (latitude and longitude) with video data. Besides, it
can playback video by our HDD viewer software, which can track a driven route using all
GIS/e-Map software.
16
Additionally, the mobile DVR has eight GPIO PINs connecting it with your car's external
signals, such as brakings or signal lights. As an example, when the vehicle's driver
operates a single light, the rear camera will start to work and record all the objects and
events behind the vehicle.
The DVR is also linked by Din connectors to four cameras recording all events and scenes
around the vehicle, and also to two auxiliary audio recorders for stereo recording of
sounds of the vehicle and its surroundings. These provide a complete record of all critical
incidents relating to your vehicle.
Inside the outer case of the DVR is the inner, recording host. You can take out this light,
portable host whenever you like and take it with you wherever you want. To play its
recorded contents you can connect it to a PC and use the hard disk drive viewer software
to play back the video information. In addition you can use a USB interface to connect the
DVR to the PC and use eMap software to map the exact route your vehicle has taken. The
inner host can also be linked by video and audio outputs to a monitor to play back its
records. Finally, you can insert an SD card into the SD card slot in the host's front panel to
record video clips of the most vital images and sections of the recordings you want.

REC RATE:
This option is for the purpose of adjusting the
number of pictures recorded every second into a
storage disk when an alarm input is activated. For
an NTSC unit, there are 5 different record speeds
you can select from: 30F/S (30 frames per
second), 15F/S, 10F/S, 6F/S, and REMAIN. For a
PAL unit, there are 5 different record speeds you
can select from: 25F/S (25 frames per second),
12.5F/S, 8.3F/S, 5F/S, and REMAIN. If you select
REMAIN for use, the device will record images at
the same speed as set on the REC page.
A/V SOURCE:
This page determines the video and the audio source.
Choose the channel and the audio/ video numbers
you want to see. Only four channels are available,
each with four video inputs and four video outputs
which you can select from and set; these same four
channels have six audio inputs and two audio outputs
you can select from and set. This "A/V SOURCE"
page lets you set two audio outputs: AUDIO 1 and 2,
which have six microphone sources each which you
can choose from, four from the video cameras and
two from the AUX ( auxiliary ) microphones. You can
only set two microphones to play. Each of the ports,
AUDIO 1 and 2, can play the sound recordings of the
same or different videos simultaneously.
REC QUALITY:
This option determines the image quality to be
recorded when an alarm input occurs. There are 4
levels of image quality to choose from: BEST,
HIGH, STANDARD, and BASIC. The table below
shows the level of image quality with the
