The DV-IP Server has NetVu Connected technology built-in to ensure maximum compatibility with
future developments in networked security. NetVu Connected technology enables the DV-IP Server
to fully interact with other NetVu Connected compatible products from Dedicated Micros including
the DV-IP Decoder, NetVu ObserVer and PDA Viewers. Providing interoperability between the
worlds leading security companies, NetVu Connected uses industry standard networking protocols
supported by a wide range of third party integration products and SDKs to ensure future on-going
compatibility.
COMMON CONFIGURATION INTERFACE
A Common Configuration interface is displayed when the unit’s configuration screens are accessed
locally at the unit or remotely via a web browser. This unified system ensures that the installer is
familiar with the configuration screens irrespective of their location to the unit, minimising training
and familiarisation time and increasing the speed of installation and alteration.
Dedicated Micros ©2008
VIDEO TIMELINE
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.
DV-IP Server
The DV-IP Server includes a unique colour-coded 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 (DM/KBC1 / DM/KBC2).
MAPS
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
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.

Installing the DV-IP Server
This procedure shows the sixteen camera input version.
Step 1 Connecting Video
The DV-IP Server supports up to 8, 12 or 16 connected Video Inputs (dependant on model) via the
75Ω BNC connectors. Connect cameras to the video inputs, starting from input 1.
All 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, Dedicated Micros recommend one row is used for video inputs and the other for all
required loop-through 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.

DV-IP Server
Step 4 Connecting to the Network
The DV-IP Server supports a 10/100Mbps auto-detecting network port. Use a CAT5 cable to connect
the unit to the network.
By default the unit is configured for DHCP i.e. the unit is automatically allocated an IP address from
a network DHCP server.
DHCP works by assigning an IP address at initial connection to the network. It is possible however
that this IP address can change without notification i.e. following power failure. It is therefore
recommended that the DV-IP Server be allocated a fixed IP address. A fixed IP address can be
assigned via the Configuration Menu pages:Network Settings->Network->IP Address.
When the unit is powered up, the network address can be found by viewing on a local monitor and
navigating to Configuration Menu pages:System Settings->System->IP Address.
Refer to ‘Configuring The Unit’ for further guidance on locating the unit’s IP address and for details of
the default DNS (Domain Name Server) address.

End Of Line Circuitry
The following describes the EOL tamper alarms circuitry needed when EOL has been configured.
There should be two resistive values within the tamper alarm circuitry. These must be located inside
the alarm device (furthest point from the unit).
The alarm state could be Normally Open or Normally Closed, however the tamper states are the
same for both settings.
Open, the resistive value is 6.8K ohms (1K + 5.6K).
Closed, the resistive value is 1K ohms, as the circuit does not see the 5.6K ohm resistor.
Open Circuit Tamper, the resistive value is infinity as the circuit has been cut and therefore is ‘open’.
Short Circuit Tamper, the resistive value is 0 ohms.

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.
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.

Live Transmissions
The NetVu Connected remote viewing software will use the settings configured on this page as
the defaults for JPEG & MPEG; High, Medium and Low settings. The DV-IP Server transmits live
images using JPEG or MPEG image formats utilising soft codec architecture (VISP). The DV-IP
Server features TransCoding enabling recorded JPEG images to be ������������������������������
converted���������������������
to low bit rate and
MPEG4 for transmission over limited bandwith links. This is essential for efficient, ‘fast update’
remote viewing of recorded video in central monitoring applications. The DV-IP Server can also
Transcode ���������������������������������������������������������
from recorded high bit rate MPEG4 to low bit rate MPEG4.
High LAN/Medium WAN/Low VLBR This shows the transmission settings configured for a High
quality LAN (Local Area Network) connection, Medium quality
WAN (Wide Area Network) connection or a Low quality VLBR
(Very Low Bit Rate connection).
Res��������������������������������������������������������
For MPEG and JPEG transmission, select image resolution
settings (4CIF, 2CIF, CIF or QCIF).
Size_rate
For JPEG, the figure entered will be the size of the JPEG
transmitted (in Kbytes). For MPEG4 the figure will be the bit rate
allocated. A higher rate will provide better quality picture display.
JPEG file sizes can be configured in the range of 5-45Kbytes and
MPEG bit rates in the range of 45-2500Kbits/second.
PPS
This shows the pictures transmitted per second (PPS). ����������
For JPEG,
the actual images transmitted will depend on the bandwith of
the link, increasing the pictures sent per second may introduce
time lag if bandwith is not sufficient. On MPEG transmission,
increasing the pictures sent will also reduce the quality of the
images (as more images are transmitted for the defined bit rate).
MPEG Comp Type
Select whether transmitted MPEG4 images are sent as RAW data
or in GOV (Group of Video) format.

code specific to the relevant television. Below are detailed the procedures to follow and a listing of
the codes associated with common television brands.
How to Program The DV-IP Server IR Remote Control
1. Turn the TV you wish to control ON�
���.
2. Press and hold the TV button on the Remote Control.
3.Also press and hold the PANIC button until the LED on the Keyboard/RC Interface
Control turns ON.
4.Release both buttons, the LED will stay ON.
5. Press and release the PLAY button.
6. Enter the required code (see list below and overleaf). Please note that up to 10 codes
can be entered at any one time. For many makes of television it will be necessary to try
several codes before the user is able to pinpoint the relevant one for the TV model.
7. Press PLAY. The IR Remote Control will search the stored codes. Note that if more
than one code has been entered, it will be necessary to press the REV button to cycle
