1. INTRODUCTION
1.1. Welcome
Thank you for purchasing DVS-8501E, 1 channel, D1 H.264 Digital
Video Server developed by CTC Union Technologies Company,
Limited. For a better understanding, please read this manual before
operating the DVS-8501E unit.
1.2. What is IP Surveillance?
IP-Surveillance is a term for a security system that gives users the
ability to monitor and record video and/or audio over an IP (Internet
Protocol-based) computer network such as a local area network (LAN)
or the Internet. In a simple IP-Surveillance system, this involves the
use of a network camera (or an analog camera with a video
encoder/video server), a network switch, a PC for viewing, managing
and storing video, and video management software.
Unlike analog video systems that use dedicated point-to-point analog
cabling from the camera location to the viewing/recording station,
IP-Surveillance (or network video) uses the IP network technology as
the backbone for transporting information. In an IP-Surveillance
application, digitized video and/or audio streams can be sent to any
location, even around the world, if desired, via a wired and/or wireless
IP network, enabling video monitoring and recording from anywhere
with network access.
While an analog video system is for the most part a one-directional
signal carrier that ends at the recording device, a network video
system is bi-directional (allowing information to be sent and received)
and can be an integrated part of a larger, scalable system. A network
camera, for instance, can send video and audio to a user, as well as
receive from the user audio and data instructions that could, for
example, activate doors or external alarms. In addition, a network
video system can communicate with several applications in parallel
and perform various tasks such as detecting motion or sending
different streams of video. Such a system provides for greater
performance possibilities and flexibility.
7
1.3. IP Surveillance Benefits
The benefits of digital surveillance are many. At the camera level, the
scalability of an IP-based system grows from a single camera to
thousands in single unit increments, compared with 16-camera or
channel steps for DVR or PC-based systems. In addition, any camera
can be provided with any frame rate at any time, and frame rate and
storage capacity can be increased simply by adding hard drives and
PC servers. Moreover, IP allows "intelligent" functionality of camera,
such as motion detection, sensor input, relay output and alarm
triggering or even advanced intelligence like 'object left' or 'object
missing'. Faster system integration allows one network that controls
audio, video and data with remote accessibility of live or stored video
streams from any location with increased reliability through real-time
management software.
1.4. Network Video Recording
IP-based systems employ an NVR (network video recorder) rather
than a DVR. The NVR is a server, using software that receives video
streams of all digital video sources or analog cameras from the
network and stores the content on a hard disk. Because they are IP
based, Network Video Recorders can be managed remotely via a LAN
or over the Internet giving greater flexibility. Capable of recording at
super high resolutions and at speeds of up to 480 pictures per second,
the NVR offers unmatched versatility.
1.5. Quick Install Steps

TROUBLE SHOOTING
1) I can’t seem to add the DVS video into the NVR live view. Attached is a
screenshot of my NVR setting. Please check what am I missing?
If you are using RTSP streaming, please make sure that you have chosen
the Stream Mode in RTSP properly. (See attached picture). By the way,
the 6789 port is for UDP stream. You also have to make sure that there is
no firewall or network block concern if there is network device like NAT
between the NVR and the DVS. If there is, make sure you forward the
port properly.
2) In web browser playback, I can’t fast forward the video. I dragged the
slider, but nothing happens.
Yes, we have found this problem in firmware V1.1532 which you have on
hand. This problem didn't exist in the previous edition. We will fix it very
quickly and provide you the updated firmware as soon as it is available.
3) I can’t find a way to backup video directly from the DVS local HDD onto
my PC. I pressed the REC button in playback, it seems to start recording
whatever is playback, but I tried to play the recorded file on VLC, nothing
happens. Can I just copy the video from the DVS HDD to my PC, without
waiting for the REC?
The only way to back up the video now from the HDD is to push the REC
button while doing the playback. The backup video needs to be
transcoded to AVI format to be successfully played on the VLC player.
Attached zip file is the tool software that you can use to transfer the back
up video. We will provide a more efficient process to manage the video
files in the HDD very soon.
4) The email notifies me of motion detect, but there’s no attachment. Is
this normal?
Please open the DVS page through I.E. Go to
"Setting"-->"Advance"-->"SMTP"-->"General" to set up the email address.
Make sure to check the "JPEG" box to send the attached file.
57
5) Is there a way to store the video recording directly to a PC over
SAMBA or NFS protocol?
For SAMBA, although our DVS has embedded Linux, we put most of the
CPU resource on the video encode and decode processes. You can
understand it while you operate the DVS which brings the exceptional
hardware encode capability. Therefore, the DVS-8501E so far cannot
support either SAMBA or NFS protocol.
6) How do I use the Live stream URL (rtsp : //ipaddress/live.mp)
You should use VLC media player to watch the video as VLC can support
the H.264 compression format. Real player and Windows Media Player
cannot support H.264 compression yet.
7) What is Cell Threshold
This parameter means the number of scan times in a period in the motion
detection area. The higher the setting number is, the more scan is
proceeding in a single period (It means more "Sensitive"). On the other
hand, the lower the setting number is, the less scan is proceeding.
8) What is Spatial Threshold
This parameter means the image alteration rate inside the motion
detection area. The higher the setting number is, the higher the threshold
of the motion detection activation which means the harder the condition of
motion detection will be sufficient.
9) What is Debounce time
It means during the setting time, all the motion detection detected will be
treated as one detected event. For example, if you set it at the min. 20
seconds, there is one moving object trigger the motion detection event. In
the following 20 seconds, even if there are other triggers in the same
motion detection area, the user will receive the alarm only one time. This
debounce time can prevent the user from receiving too many redundant
alarms. After all, once the first motion trigger the alarm, the user can
playback the video to check out the related image data around the trigger
time.
58
10) SMTP already set but received no email notification?
You have to set up the SMTP server and Sender Mail Address under
same source. That means, for example, if you set "smtp.gmail.com" in
SMTP server, the Sender Mail Address has to be [email protected]
(XXXXX depends on the actual gmail account). Please kindly note that
we suggest you choosing 456(SSL) port and check SSL under
Authentication while using gmail as SMTP server.
