the hybrid video
surveillance system
for 64 cameras
Building Technologies
A new dimension of surveillance
SISTORE MX is a flexible, hybrid surveillance and image
recording system that can be used in a multitude of
applications. From banks and industrial facilities to train
stations and shopping centres, the system is designed
for all applications. SISTORE MX is ideal for integration
with other security systems due to the numerous connection possibilities available. Integrated motion detection enables both indoor and outdoor surveillance.
Transportation system
Safe and secure into the future with
Siemens’ hybrid technology
Hybrid recording system with up to
64 camera inputs
Siemens hybrid technology unifies both
analogue and digital technologies in a
single system, therefore allowing a
smooth upgrade of existing systems. With
ten available models, up to 32 standard
analogue cameras and 32 IP cameras can
be connected, with various hard disk
sizes, and DVD burning options.
Integration in other systems
Via the integrated software interface,
SISTORE MX can be controlled by IVM, the
interactive video management software,
SiPass® access control system, and
MM8000, the danger management system from Siemens, to name but a few.
PTZ control for both speed dome
cameras and pan/tilt devices
Both speed dome and pan/tilt/zoom cameras can be controlled via the on-screen
interface of SISTORE MX. Preset positions
can be set and recalled simply, together
with setting patrols, where the camera
moves from one preset position to another automatically and “patrols” the facility.
Support of third-party IP cameras
including PTZ control
SISTORE MX can also be connected to
third-party IP cameras that have already
been installed and, if these are functional
cameras, then SISTORE MX also supports
PTZ control over a network.
Full “pentaplex” operation
SISTORE MX is a pentaplex system – one
which enables the user to simultaneously
continue to record, watch a live multiBanks
screen picture display whilst playing back
previously recorded video scenes on the
same monitor and remote viewing over a
network or dialup connection.
Tamper protection and temperature
management integrated
This hybrid recording system is equipped
with integrated sabotage protection,
recognising camera re-positioning, covering, spraying and defocusing. The integrated temperature management reduces
maintenance time and cost, ensuring true
system protection.
Hybrid digital recording system with
up to 64 camera inputs
Records up to 200 images per second
Integration with IVM, SiPass, MM8000
Control of PTZ and dome cameras
Site plan feature for easy orientation
in the monitored area
Cameras positioned in a site plan can be
displayed easily via mouse click. This
feature helps operating personnel to track
suspicious people for example, without
having to remember the next camera
Certified as complying with the
German Accident Prevention Regulations for Banks (UVV Kassen)
SISTORE MX is certified as complying with
the German Accident Prevention Regulations for Banks (the highest certification
standard in Germany), which is required
by every bank.

Comprehensive features
that are simple to operate
Flexible remote monitoring
In networked applications during an
alarm condition, SISTORE MX can provide
a direct link to the remote viewing software, to allow immediate access to the
images over the network, or send SMS
and if required an e-mail. This included
RemoteView software can also perform a
“site-tour” – automatically connecting
and disconnecting to pre-defined remote
sites allowing the operator to simply sit
back and watch the tour on the monitor.
Basic matrix switching
It is possible to have a total of 4 analogue
monitor outputs – these can be used to
switch any of the 32 analogue cameras,
creating a basic 32 x 4 switcher. Monitors
can be programmed to act as alarm monitors and SISTORE MX will automatically
switch cameras upon alarm activation.
Reference image
Benefiting both installers and end users
is the facility to store a “reference image”
of the installed camera – so should it be
moved, maliciously or otherwise, or
simply if it has to be serviced, there is an
exact record of its viewing position.
Various different display options
With the connection of up to 64 cameras
possible, multiple screen display options
are provided to the user to ensure the
optimum viewing conditions.
Motion detection
To optimise hard disk storage, the pixelbased motion detection system allows
the user to define areas of interest in a
scene and only when motion occurs
inside this area, will the images be
Covert camera mode
Any camera can be recorded, but not
displayed depending upon the user level,
so cameras monitoring cash registers
could only be monitored by Managers for
Quick and easy searching
To ensure the fastest method of finding
images, a mask can be defined in the
area of interest, filtering the playback to
only that area and ensuring no time is
wasted watching hours of useless video.
Also, there is the timeline search, showing all recorded images across the cameras, including showing movement
detection, alarm triggers etc. – just drag
the line to the time or date required –
simple. Of course it is also possible to
search according to standard criteria such
as date, time, camera and logbook.
Up to 32 analogue cameras can be connected to the system; these can be a
mixture of colour or mono, indoor or
outdoor cameras, pan/tilt/zoom cameras,
fixed cameras or speed dome cameras.
Support of megapixel recording
SISTORE MX supports the recording of
megapixel IP cameras. Megapixel recordings contain more information, particularly useful when using the integrated
digital zoom feature.
Interoperable security systems
from Siemens
Utilising SiPass access control software
from Siemens, operators have a clear
overview of their buildings, including
open doors or windows. If either the
access control or intrusion detection system trigger an alarm, SISTORE MX automatically starts recording the relevant
camera located in the alarm zone area.
The video images can be replayed as
alarm verification directly in the SiPass
software. Activating and deactivating of
intrusion alarm zones is then also possible
via SiPass software, as well as automatically restricting access control rights during an alarm situation.
IVM (Interactive Video Software) for
integrated control of video systems. This
management system allows the operator
to control a security system via the
graphical user interface.

16 alarm outputs
Up to 4 analogue monitors can be connected to
the SISTORE MX; as well as having the option to
display covert or standard cameras, alarm images are also automatically displayed and
switched between monitors, enabling flexible
viewing of a whole site.
The SISTORE MX has 32 alarm inputs, from
which recording can be started or speed adjusted. The 8 digital inputs are reserved for specific
alarm inputs e. g. UPS power failure, start/stop
recording. The 16 alarm outputs are designed to
connect to alarm systems, turn on lights or trigger a loudspeaker pre-recording. It is also possible to record a single audio channel linked to a
pre-defined camera. An alarm input could come
also from a Siemens intrusion detection system.

Remote operation (RemoteView)
Up to 16 RemoteView clients have access to
SISTORE MX. Each RemoteView client can display
the images of up to 8 SISTORE MX devices at the
same time. The “site-tour” feature is an automatic,
sequential connection to multiple SISTORE MX
access control
SISTORE MX can be connected to a SiPass access
control system to enable quick and easy searches
for events triggered in the SISTORE MX system
(e.g. alarm inputs, alarm outputs, recordings,
motion detection, etc.) using the SiPass software.
Motion detection
Quick and easy searching using timeline or filter.
Additional features provided by SISTORE MX
Site plan feature
It is always difficult to remember all camera numbers and positions. The new site
plan feature of SISTORE MX provides a
full visual overview of a facility. Site
plans or photos of facilities can be loaded
easily by adding the appropriate symbol
for the camera position to the site plan.
In addition to this, it is possible to add
additional cards for individual rooms or
floors and link these so as to be able to
easily switch between rooms or floors.
This is an important feature for operating
personnel when tracking suspicious
persons on the premises.
Cash register connection
The serial interface with which SISTORE
MX is equipped can be used to connect
various different cash register systems,
therefore making the system suitable for
use in retail stores, shopping centres etc.
Recording can be initiated for a corresponding camera based on special
word/line filters placed on the data sent
from the cash register as well as defined
alarm filters. The same filter words can
then be used as search criteria for subsequent research.
The site plan feature helps operating personnel track
suspicious persons.
Automatic backup
SISTORE MX can automatically backup
full or partial video and audio recordings
on an external drive. The time and days
of the week can be configured for backup. The user can choose whether to carry
out full or incremental backup. As opposed to full backup, incremental backup
is used to store all files that have been
created since the last backup therefore
requiring considerably less time and storage capacity on the target drive.
Simply add and position cameras on the site plan via
drag and drop.
Multiple server operation
The new multiple server operation feature
enables simultaneous access to several
SISTORE MX devices from a remote operating station and therefore allows for
monitoring several locations at the same
time using RemoteView. Images from a
specific camera are displayed by simply
selecting the camera from the list. Up to
768 (8 x 96) cameras can be listed and
live images from up to 36 (6 x 6) cameras
can be displayed at once.
External storage expansion
possibilities (e.g. RAID 1 or RAID 5/6)
Should large video storage be required for
longer recordings, SISTORE MX has a SCSI
output that can be used to extend the hard
disk storage of the system to an external
RAID system which can be the Siemens
SISTORE RAID or a third-party product.
Connect up to two SISTORE™ recording devices simultaneously via the two SCSI ports
available on SISTORE RAID. Utilising the
hot-swappable drives, hard disks can be
exchanged while the system is working,
therefore ensuring continuous operation
as a reboot is not necessary. An integrated
LCD display ensures easy local configuration, while management software offers
remote browser-based administration. Performance is of the highest level, utilising
IBM RISC architecture, ensuring data is
both stored and accessible on demand.
