System Keyboards
Operation and programming of MegaPower 48+ is
accomplished through commands entered on a system
keyboard. AD system keyboards available include
ADCC1100, ADCC0200, ADCC0300 and ADTTE Touch
Trackers®.
The basic operating procedures for each of these
keyboards are virtually identical. Access to different task
and programming levels is controlled by using smart cards
on the ADCC1100 and passcodes on the ADCC0200 and
ADCC0300. On the ADTTE, access is determined by a
key-controlled “system lock” and password procedure.
When Format 2 is selected, the time and date fields
appear at the top of the screen. Camera number, status
and camera title appear on the bottom of the screen.
Because the ADCC1100 provides the most extensive
feature set of the currently available keyboards,
MegaPower 48+ operation and programming will be
discussed with reference to the ADCC1100 keyboard
layout.
5
MegaPowerTM 48+
Basic User Tasks
Logging on to the Keyboard: Mode 3
(using an ADCC1100 keyboard)
1. At the welcome screen insert the smart card.
This section discusses how a keyboard operator gains
access to a MegaPower 48+ system, and how cameras
are called to view on workstation monitors.
2. At the Enter User ID screen, enter the User ID number
using the alphanumeric keys. Press the ENTER soft key.
3. At the Enter PIN screen, enter the PIN number using
the alphanumeric keys. Press the ENTER soft key.
Control of pan/tilt cameras is discussed, and how to zoom,
focus, and adjust the iris of a camera lens. The section
also discusses how to run tours, patterns, and macros,
and how to call presets and salvos.
4. Depending on the privileges of the operator
(supervisor, administrator or operator) a version of
the main menu will be displayed.
There is also an explanation of how to select and control
a VCR. In addition, procedures are provided for
acknowledging alarms and controlling auxiliary devices.
Configuring for MP48 or AD1024 mode
The ADCC1100 keyboard is designed for use with the
MegaPower 48+ or AD1024 matrix switching system. The
ADCC1100 keyboard needs to be set to one of these
systems in order to operate correctly.
Most of the operations discussed in this section can be
performed on the ADCC0200, ADCC0300, AD2079,
AD2088 and ADTTE Touch Tracker keyboards. Consult
the documentation provided with the keyboard for more
details.
1. Using the Administrator’s smart card, log on to the
system.
Keyboard Access Control
2. Press the PROGRAM MODE tab key.
User access to the ADCC1100 depends on whether the
User IDs feature has been enabled on the connected
MegaPower 48+ matrix (see page 16). There are three
modes of user access control:
3. Press the NEXT soft key.
Mode 1
User access is controlled by the smart card only. If User
IDs are disabled on the MegaPower 48+, then the
keyboard will log on to the matrix as soon as the smart
card is inserted into the keyboard.
5. Remove the Administrator’s smart card.
Mode 2
User access is controlled by a matrix User ID (which is
stored on the smart card) and by a PIN number. If User
IDs are enabled on the switching matrix the keyboard will
check the smart card to see if the User ID has been stored
on the card. If it has, the operator only needs to enter a
PIN number.
Selecting Monitors
4. Press the MP48 MODE/AD1024 MODE soft key. This
has a toggle action selecting either MP48 Mode or
AD1024 Mode.
The keyboard is now set to the selected mode and will
retain this setting—even after powering off the keyboard—
until it is changed again using the steps above.
Workstation monitors display the video from the cameras
and domes installed in local and/or satellite facilities. Each
monitor has an identification number documented by the
system administrator.
To select a monitor:
1. Enter the monitor identification number on the numeric
keypad. The number entered will appear next to the
ENTER caption on the display.
Mode 3
User access is controlled by a matrix User ID (which is
not stored on the smart card) and by a PIN number. If no
User ID has been stored on the smart card, the keyboard
will prompt the user to enter the User ID and then the PIN
number.
2. Press the MONITOR button. The monitor number will
disappear from next to the ENTER caption and appear
beneath the MONITOR caption on the display.
Note: video output X16 (primary matrix, output port 16)
can be used by the system to sample video. If video loss
detection is enabled for any system video input, X16 will
not be available for video switching.
For user number 1, the system is provided with a default
six-digit passcode “914365”. This default passcode
should be changed to guard against unauthorized
access to the system. To insure system security, all
passcode information should be kept confidential.
Calling a Camera to View on a Monitor
After a monitor has been called to the control of the
keyboard, a camera can be called to view on the monitor.
Each system camera has a unique identification number
documented by the system administrator.
Logging on to the Keyboard: Mode 1
1. At the welcome screen insert the smart card.
2. Depending on the privileges of the operator
(supervisor, administrator or operator) a version of
the main menu will be displayed.
To call a camera:
1. Enter the camera identification number on the numeric
keypad. The number entered will appear next to the
ENTER caption on the display.
Logging on to the Keyboard: Mode 2
1. At the welcome screen insert the smart card.
2. Press the CAMERA button. The camera number will
disappear from next to the ENTER caption and appear
beneath the CAMERA caption on the display.
2. At the Enter PIN screen, enter the PIN number using
the alphanumeric keys. Press the ENTER soft key.
3. Depending on the privileges of the operator
(supervisor, administrator or operator) a version of
the main menu will be displayed.
The selected video input now appears on the monitor
screen. After calling a camera to the selected monitor,
any other camera can be called to the monitor by
repeating the two-step procedure described above.

System Programming and Operation Manual
Notes
• Monitors connected to secondary matrices can only
view cameras connected to that secondary unit. If
video from a secondary matrix is called to be viewed
on a monitor connected to another matrix, a message
will be displayed on-screen informing the user that
the video input is invalid.
• On-screen text display is available on primary matrix
monitors 1-8 and also on any monitors connected to
secondary matrices.
Controlling Camera Focus
Focus refers to the action of adjusting the clarity of the
camera image displayed on the monitor. To focus the
camera on a distant object, press the FAR key ( ). To
focus on a closer object, press the NEAR key ( ).
Controlling the Camera Iris
Normally, the brightness of a picture is controlled by the
camera’s auto gain and the auto/manual iris functions.
However, there may be times when you would like the
picture on the monitor to appear darker or lighter. To
brighten the picture, press the iris OPEN key ( ). To
darken the picture, press the iris CLOSE key ( ).
Controlling Camera Pan, Tilt and Zoom
Once an appropriately equipped camera has been called
to view on a monitor, the operator can manually control
the camera's movement. Pan is the side-to-side
movement of the camera. Tilt is the up and down
movement of the camera.
Controlling Camera Flip
To “flip” the camera under keyboard control 180O from its
current position (for uninterrupted surveillance of objects
which pass directly beneath the camera), use the flip soft
key.
The keyboard's joystick controls the panning and tilting
of cameras connected to the switching matrix. As the
joystick is moved to the left or right, and is moved towards
or away from the operator, the camera will pan and/or tilt
accordingly.
To flip the camera:
1. Press the OPERATOR tab key.
For cameras with variable speed pan/tilt capability,
camera movement speed is proportional to the positioning
of the joystick. The further from the stationary centre
position the joystick travels, the faster the camera will
move.
2. Press the NEXT soft key.
3. Press the FLIP soft key.
Note: on suitably equipped domes with the auto-flip
function turned on, the dome flips automatically when the
subject passes directly beneath the camera.
Zoom refers to the apparent action of moving closer to or
farther away from an object, as seen through the camera
lens. For cameras equipped with an appropriate zoom
lens, the zoom function can be controlled from the joystick
by twisting it clockwise or counterclockwise. Twisting
clockwise enables the lens to zoom in. Twisting
counterclockwise enables the lens to zoom out.
Auto Iris
Certain cameras are designed with Auto Iris capability.
The feature can be enabled from the keyboard as follows.
To enable auto iris:
1. Press the OPERATOR tab key.
Center the joystick when the camera has been positioned
appropriately.
2. Press the NEXT soft key.
3. Press the AUTO IRIS soft key.
Note: using the manual OPEN or CLOSE iris key will
override the Auto Iris function as long as either of these
keys is held down. The camera may or may not then return
to auto iris mode after a time interval, or it may stay in
manual iris mode. This depends on the camera under
control and how the camera has been set up.
Locking and Unlocking a Camera
After calling a pan/tilt camera to view and control on a
system monitor, an operator can prevent other operators
from controlling the movements of the called camera. This
is referred to as “locking” the camera.
To lock a camera:
1. Enter the camera identification number on the
alphanumeric keypad.
Calling Presets (Shots)
A preset is a memorized location or scene that a pan/tilt
camera can display on operator demand. Presets are also
referred to as shots or targets. In the MegaPower 48+
system, an operator can call up to 96 presets per camera
(depending on the receiver/driver wired to the camera),
with a total of 4096 presets allowed. Presets are
positioned and stored in memory in the Program mode.
2. Press the CAMERA button.
3. Press the OPERATOR tab key, then the NEXT soft

Running System Tours
Calling a Scratch Pad Tour
A tour is a dynamic sequence of camera views, each of
which appears on a selected monitor screen for a
specified dwell time, and each of which can have a preprogrammed preset status, auxiliary status, and connect
next designation. System tours are also referred to as
universal tours.
Each monitor can have a stored scratch-pad tour (a
temporary tour programmed by the operator).
To call a scratch-pad tour:
1. Select the monitor for the desired scratch-pad tour
(ensure that there is no tour currently running on the
selected monitor).
Additionally, there are monitor or “scratch-pad” tours,
which are temporary tours programmed for the operator’s
currently selected monitor.
2. Press the RUN soft key.
Calling Salvos
To run a system (universal) tour:
A salvo is the simultaneous display of multiple camera
scenes on a group of numerically contiguous monitors.
The MegaPower 48+ system allows 64 salvos with up to
16 entries per salvo. Each system salvo has a unique
identification number that defines the set of contiguous
monitors.
1. Select a monitor.
2. Enter the system tour identification number using the
alphanumeric keys. The number entered will appear
next to the ENTER caption.
3. Press the RUN soft key.
4. The TOUR MODE n caption will appear on the display
(where n is the system tour identification number
entered in step 2 above.
To call a salvo:
1. Enter the identification number of the first (lowest
numbered) monitor of the contiguous monitor group
on the alphanumeric keypad. The monitor number
entered will appear next to ENTER on the keyboard’s
display.
Note: after the RUN soft key is pressed, its caption
changes to HOLD—see Holding a Tour below.
When running a tour in the forward direction, an “F” is
displayed on the on-screen status line next to the dwell
time. When a tour is running in the reverse direction, an
“R” is displayed on the screen.
2. Press the MONITOR key.
3. Enter the identification number for the salvo. The
number entered will appear next to ENTER on the
keyboard’s display.
Holding a Tour
4. Press the SALVO soft key.
A tour can be stopped and held on a single camera entry
by pressing the HOLD soft key. While a tour is on hold,
all keyboard control actions (pan, tilt, lens adjustment,
auxiliary on/off functions) can be performed on the held
camera.
Auxiliary Control
An auxiliary is a relay that switches devices such as
camera lights, a camera washer, and a camera wiper, on
or off. The ADCC1100 keyboard can control four
auxiliaries labelled AUX 1, AUX 2, AUX 3, and AUX 4.
AUX 1 and AUX 2 are on the first operator screen, AUX 3
and AUX 4 are on the second operator screen. Soft keys
are used to turn the auxiliary function ON or OFF. The
auxiliary function will remain ON until the soft key is again
pressed.
Note: after the HOLD soft key is pressed, its caption
changes to RUN—see Restarting a Tour on Hold below.
Restarting a Tour on Hold
To restart a held tour, press the RUN soft key. The tour
will continue running from the point at which it was
previously held.
Stepping through a Tour
An auxiliary that is set to ON will be shown by its keyboard
icon in inverse video. The keyboard always sets auxiliary
functions to OFF when a new camera is selected.
When a tour is running, the INCREMENT/ DECREMENT
CAMERA keys can be used to step through the tour.
Acknowledging Alarms
To step through a tour:
When a monitor is armed for alarm display, the video
input associated with the appropriate alarm contact is
displayed on the monitor when the alarm is activated. If
the monitor is armed for manual clearance, any alarm
displayed on the monitor can be acknowledged (cleared)
by a keyboard operator.
1. To step forward press the ▲ key.
2. To step backward, press the ▼ key.

System Programming and Operation Manual
Running a Macro
Macros can be run in one of three ways:
Running Patterns
A pattern is a sequential series of pan, tilt, zoom, and
focus commands defined for SpeedDome series domes.
A pattern is programmed in real time, which means that
the dome remembers each pattern segment in the actual
time it takes the operator to execute a command. For
example, if, during a pattern sequence, the dome focuses
on a door for 30 seconds, the door scene will appear for
30 seconds when the pattern is called to run.
1. Multiple Macros - During programming, an individual
macro key can have multiple macros assigned to it.
Each macro is identified using a unique number
between 1-9999. The required macro is run by
entering a number from the alphanumeric keypad (1
to 9999), and then pressing the soft key associated
with the macro’s icon.
To run a pattern:
2. Simple Macro - This type of macro assigns one
function to a specific macro soft key. To run the macro,
navigate to the macro’s icon and page and press the
soft key associated with the macro.
1. Press the OPERATOR tab key.
2. Call the camera that the pattern will run on.
3. Enter the pattern number (1-3) using the alphanumeric
keys. The pattern number will appear next to ENTER
on the keyboard’s display.
3. Variable Macro - This type of macro uses the numeric
entry from the keypad as a variable during the macro’s
execution. For example, the macro may have been
programmed such that when the operator enters a
number, the number is used to call that camera to a
monitor specified in the macro’s program. This type
of macro enables an operator to greatly reduce the
number of keystrokes required to call a camera to a
monitor, while also unburdening the operator from
having to remember the number of the monitor that
has to be addressed. This application is for operators
who consistently utilize certain monitors at their
workstations.
4. Press the PATTERN soft key.
Selecting and Running a Macro
A macro is a series of keyboard inputs that is executed
using a single keystroke. Macros are arranged on the
keyboard display by means of icons and macro pages.
Each macro page consists of eight icons arranged in two
rows of four with each icon adjacent to a soft key. The
NEXT and PREVIOUS tab keys are used to select macro
pages.
To run the macro, enter a number using the
alphanumeric keys (this is the variable), and press
the soft key associated with the macro.
The system administrator will record the macros that have
been programmed for the switching system.
Note: The figure below shows a representation of a
default macro page. During macro programming, it is
possible to assign a different icon to each macro, and a
different name to each macro page.
Selecting Video Recorders
To initiate VCR control, the operator performs the following
actions:
1. Press the OPERATOR tab key then press the NEXT
soft key.
2. Enter the number of the VCR using the numeric keys.
3. Press the VCR soft key.
The keyboard display will change to show soft key icons,
which can be used to control the selected VCR.

through another IP address.
• The MegaPower 48+ system uses TCP/IP.
• Other network traffic can impede system performance.
Always consult your IT administrator.
MESSAGE - Use this field to enter the number of the
message (1-250) that is to be sent to the selected
pager whenever the alarm contact is triggered.
See pages 36 for more details on setting up alarm
responses.
Paging Response to Alarms
Approximately 30 seconds elapse between the time a
alarm contact is triggered, and the time that the associated
text message appears on a remote pager.
Multiple alarms are queued in the sequence in which they
occur. Therefore, for each alarm in queue, a 30 second
interval is required for transmission to the pager to take
place. For example, five alarms would require
approximately 150 seconds for transmission.
The first field in the menu is the UNIT IS field. With the
cursor in this field, use the ENTER soft key to set whether
the matrix is a PRIMARY or SECONDARY unit. The
selection made in this field determines how the rest of
the menu will appear.
In the event of a busy signal for a given paging alarm, the
alarm moves to the back of the queue, and calls again
after advancing to the front of the queue. A maximum of
three calls is scheduled for a single paging alarm event.
Primary Units
If PRIMARY is selected, the menu will appear as above,
with fields in which IP addresses of secondary units can
be entered. The fields should be completed as follows:
MULTI MATRIX MODE selects the mode in which units
have been connected together. The selection made here
determines how system cameras and monitors will be
numbered. The multi-matrix modes available are as follows:
• Mode 0 has no secondary matrices.
• Mode 1 has 1 primary and up to 3 secondary units,
with 16 monitor outputs from each secondary unit
connected to 16 video inputs on the primary unit.
Maximum of 144 cameras, 16 full cross point switched
monitor outputs and 32 RS232 ports for keyboards or
other supported devices.
• Mode 2 has 1 primary and up to four secondary units,
with 12 monitor outputs from each secondary unit
connected to 12 video inputs on the primary unit.
Maximum of 192 cameras, 12 full cross point switched
monitor outputs and 3 additional monitor outputs on
each secondary unit for viewing of video from that
secondary unit only. 40 RS232 ports for keyboards or
other supported devices.
• Mode 3 has 1 primary with up to six secondary units,
with 8 monitor outputs from each secondary unit
connected to 8 video inputs on the primary unit.
Maximum of 288 cameras, 8 full cross point switched
monitor outputs and 7 additional monitor outputs on
each secondary unit for viewing of video from that
secondary unit only. 56 RS232 ports for keyboards or
other supported devices.
Multi-Matrix
A MegaPower 48+ system can be anything from a single
unit (48 video inputs, 16 video outputs) to a system
comprising a primary unit with six secondaries (288 video
inputs, eight full cross point switched monitor outputs and
seven additional monitor outputs on each secondary unit
for viewing of video from that secondary unit only).
The Multi Matrix screen is used to specify how the
MegaPower 48+ system has been set up. The screen
must be completed so that the system is aware of how
many MegaPower 48+ units are connected together, and
subsequently how many inputs and outputs are available
in the system.

number of fields that are used to determine network
information for the primary unit and any connected
secondary units.
•
•
•
•
In this menu, it is only necessary to configure network
settings for the secondary unit itself. The fields in this
menu should be completed as follows:
• The UNIT IP ADDRESS field is used to specify the
address that uniquely identifies this secondary unit
from all other devices on the network.
• The SUBNET MASK field is used to determine which
part of the organization’s network that the secondary
unit is located.
• The GATEWAY field is used to enter the default
gateway for the secondary unit, if required.
• The PRIMARY IP field is used to enter the IP address
of the primary unit in the system.
The UNIT IP ADDRESS field is used to specify the
address that uniquely identifies the primary unit from
all other devices on the network.
The SUBNET MASK field is used to determine which
part of the organization’s network that the primary unit
is located. Typically, a subnet may represent all the
machines at one geographic location, in one building,
or on the same local area network.
The GATEWAY field is used to enter the default
gateway for the primary unit. The default gateway
defines the address of the router for the network, if
required.
The SECOND IP fields (A-F) are used to enter the IP
addresses of any secondary units. These entries
should match the addresses that are entered when
the secondary units themselves are configured – see
the following section for more details.
To complete these fields:
1. Move the cursor to the required field.
2. Enter the desired address three figures at a time,
pressing the ENTER soft key after each section of
the address has been entered.
Once the address of the primary unit has been entered,
the system will poll this address to confirm the status. If
an IP address is correct and the primary unit is online,
the STAT will display a P for Present. The two fields at
the bottom of the menu will also be completed. These
fields identify which secondary matrix this unit has been
specified as (A-F) and the multi matrix mode that has
been specified on the primary unit (0-3)
To complete these fields:
1. Move the cursor to the required field.
2. Enter the desired address three figures at a time,
pressing the ENTER soft key after each section of
the address has been entered (i.e., 255, ENTER, 255,
ENTER, 255, ENTER, 255, ENTER).
If the address is incorrect or the unit is offline, the STAT
field will display a NC for Not Connected.
Once addresses of primary and secondary units have been
entered, the system will poll these addresses to confirm
their status. If an IP address is correct and the unit is online,
the STAT field for that address will display a P for Present.
If the address is incorrect or the unit is offline, the STAT
field for that address will display a NC for Not Connected.

Monitor Menu
Block Display – incoming alarms are viewed on a block
of monitors. The first incoming alarm is displayed on
the first (lowest numbered) monitor of the block. The
second alarm is displayed on the next lowest
numbered monitor of the block, and so on. When all
monitors in a given block are displaying alarm video
signals, all subsequent alarms are held in queue until
the displayed alarms are cleared.
The Monitor menu is used to view and/or modify each
monitor’s setup programming, and to arm monitors for
response to alarms.
The menu consists of a single page which will change as
any given monitor is selected. Monitors are listed by their
monitor identification number, and a matrix reference is
also given to show which matrix the monitor is connected
to (X = primary unit, A-F = secondary unit).
•
To select a monitor, move the cursor to the MONITOR
field, enter the required monitor identification number and
press the ENTER soft key. Alternatively, use the ENTER
soft key to toggle through the available monitors.
The Queuing method
Sequence Queuing – incoming alarms are displayed
in sequence on an armed monitor, and will cycle
continuously until each is cleared. Each alarm will be
displayed for a pre-programmed dwell time, before it
is succeeded by the next received alarm.
Hold Queuing – an incoming alarm is displayed and
held on an armed monitor until it is cleared. All
subsequent alarms are queued in order until the
current held alarm is cleared.
MONITOR - X01
ARM TYPE - BSI 001 ACK - Y
TOUR - 02
TOUR STATUS - HOLD
DATE TIME - ON
TITLE DISPLAY - ON
SCREEN TEMPLATE - FORMAT 1
•
The Clearance method
Manual Clear – an alarm is cleared by a system
operator’s keyboard command (i.e., the ALARM (
soft key).
Instant Clear – an alarm is reset immediately at its
source (if the alarm has not already been manually
acknowledged). For example, a door opens and
activates an alarm. Closing the door clears the alarm
instantly.
Notes
• The number of monitors available depends on how
the Multi Matrix screen was configured (i.e., the multimatrix mode used and the number of matrices added
to the system - see page 20). More information on
monitor numbering in multi-matrix systems can be
found in Appendix D.
• Video output X16 (primary matrix, output port 16) is
used by the system to sample video. If video loss
detection is enabled for any system video input, video
output X16 will not be available for video switching,
regardless of parameters programmed through the
Monitor menu.
Auto Clear – an alarm is reset at its source after a 20
second delay (if the alarm has not already been
manually acknowledged). For example, a door opens
and activates an alarm. The door is immediately
closed, but the alarm will not clear unless the door
remains closed for a 20 second interval.

)
The Display method
Single Display – incoming alarms are displayed on a
single monitor with which they are associated. Multiple
alarms received at single monitor will be displayed in
sequence based on the monitor’s queuing method.
Dual Display – incoming alarms are displayed on a
pair of monitors. The monitor that receives the first of
a series of alarms is called the hold monitor.
Subsequent alarms are received and queued at the
second monitor of the pair. The second monitor is
called the sequence monitor. After an alarm is cleared
on the hold monitor, the first alarm in queue on the
sequence monitor is moved to the hold monitor for
viewing and clearance.

In a single matrix system, camera numbering is simple
with cameras numbered from 1 to 48 based on the port
to which they are connected. However, in multi-matrix
systems, camera numbering becomes more complicated.
CAMERA - 0001

• Monitors connected to secondary units can only view
cameras connected to that secondary unit. Even if
permission is granted for these cameras, the monitors
will be unable to view video from them.
• If video loss detection is enabled, video output X16
(primary matrix, output port 16) will be used by the
system to sample video. Therefore if video loss
detection is enabled, changes to the access rights
for this monitor cannot be made.
• The triggering of an alarm contact can be set to display
a specify video input on a specific monitor. When
completing the Monitor - Camera screen, ensure that
these alarm monitors are granted access on these
alarm cameras.

MegaPowerTM 48+
Alarms
Additional Alarm Programming Notes
The MegaPower 48+ system has four categories of
alarms:
Please take note of the following points when carrying
out alarm programming:
1. Patch Panel Alarms are alarm contacts that are wired
directly to the alarms section of a MegaPower 48+
connection panel. There can be up to 16 patch panel
alarm inputs per unit (maximum of 112 alarms with
six secondary units).
Auxiliary and Preset Alarm Callups
Multiple alarm contacts can be associated with different
auxiliary and/or preset callups for a single camera. If more
than one of these alarm contacts are triggered during an
event, the system will activate each preset and/or auxiliary
for the same camera in the order that the alarms are
received.
2. RS232 Alarms are alarm contacts routed to a RS232
port on the MegaPower 48+ patch panel via an
AD2096A Alarm Interface Unit (AIU). Each connected
AD2096A unit can be connected to 48 alarm inputs. A
maximum of 512 RS232 alarm inputs can be
connected.
For details about adding auxiliaries and presets to an
alarm response, see the Alarm Setup screens on pages
36-37.
Associating Alarms with Salvos
An alarm contact can be set to call a system or link salvo
when it is triggered (see pages 35-37). To display these
salvos properly, alarm contacts must be associated with
a monitor block containing a sufficient number of monitors
for the cameras defined in the salvos. If there are more
salvo cameras than block monitors, the additional
cameras will not be displayed.
3. Dome Alarms are alarm contacts routed from AD
domes to the RS422 or SensorNet connectors on the
MegaPower 48+ patch panel. There can be up to four
alarm inputs on each connected AD dome (maximum
288 dome cameras).
4. Video Loss Alarms are triggered by the loss of the
synchronisation signal from any video input connected
to the MegaPower 48+ patch panel. There can be a
video loss alarm for every video input, whether it is
connected to the primary matrix or to a secondary
unit. This means there is a maximum of 288 video
loss alarms.
It should also be noted that if the first monitor of the block
is armed for Manual Clear, the keyboard must call the
first monitor of the block displaying the salvo in order to
clear the salvo.
For more details about monitor blocks, see page 23.
Wired Alarm Contact Sets
Consecutively numbered alarm contacts can be group
into wired sets. A wired set is a group of alarms such that
when any member of the set is triggered, all members
are triggered. Each alarm is then displayed, queued and
cleared according to the arming code of the monitors it is
associated with.
Programming an Alarm
There are three steps to programming an alarm:
1. Create an alarm response for the connected alarm
contact. This is done using the Alarm Setup screens.
When an alarm contact is triggered, a preset position
and auxiliary action on a specific video input can be
called, as can a salvo or pattern. It is also possible to
activate on-screen messages, relays on a MegaPower
48+ patch panel and for the system to send a specified
text message to a specified pager.
If an alarm contact in a wired set is associated with a
monitor that has been armed with an Instant or Auto
clearance method, then all members of the wired set will
be cleared when the source alarm is cleared. If the monitor
has a Manual clearance method, each alarm in the set
must be manually acknowledged, or alternatively one of
the Group Acknowledge link options can be selected to
the alarm response so that when a member of the wired
set is cleared, all other members of the wired set are also
cleared.
See pages 36-37 for more details on the Alarm Setup
screens.
2. Associate the alarm contact with system monitors.
This is done using the Association Alarms to
Monitors screens. When an alarm contact is
triggered, the response that has been created (i.e.,
video input, salvo, pattern, on-screen message) will
be displayed on all monitors associated with the
specific alarm contact.
For more details on wired sets and Group Acknowledge
link options, see the Alarm Setup screens on pages 3637.
See pages 38-39 for more details on the Alarm
Associations screens.
3. Arm system monitors. This is done using the Monitors
menu. Only armed monitors will display alarm
responses, and the arming method selected
determines how alarms will be displayed, queued and
cleared.
See page 22 for more details on the Monitors menu.
Note: Before programming video loss alarms, ensure that
video loss detection is enabled on any video inputs that
are to have video loss alarms. See page 24 for details on
enabling video loss detection.

System Programming and Operation Manual
Alarms Menu
The alarm message is displayed above the camera title
in the on-screen display (Format 1) when the associated
alarm signal is received. If the on-screen display has been
located at the top of the monitor screen (Format 2), that
display is moved down below the alarm message.
The Alarms menu enables the programming of the alarm
response for the MegaPower 48+ system. Video inputs
are automatically switched to specific monitors based on
external alarm signals triggered by alarm contacts. An
alarm signal can also switch an auxiliary device on or off,
and can generate a paging response that sends a text
message to a pager at a remote location.
To program a message:
1. Move the cursor to the MESSAGE NUMBER line.
2. Press the ENTER soft key to cycle through the
available message numbers until the appropriate
number appears and then use the joystick to move
the cursor to the message line.

System Programming and Operation Manual
PAGING
An alarm message can be transmitted via the MegaPower
48+ port 8 modem to a communication services company
(e.g. SkyTel) for relay to remote pager. The pager is
associated with a personal identification number (PIN)
and a message referenced to an Alarm Message Number.
Perform the following steps to program a PIN and paging
message:
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and SEND TO row.
2. Enter a paging profile number from 1 to 64 and press
the ENTER soft key (the cursor moves down to the
ALARM MSG field).
3. Enter an alarm message number from 1 to 250 and
press the ENTER soft key.
The parameters that can be edited in the four Alarm Setup
screens (see page 36) are as follows:
VIDEO SELECT
This is a four digit entry for a video input associated with
the appropriate alarm contact. VIDEO SELECT
represents either a real or a pseudo camera number.
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and the VIDEO SELECT row.
2. Enter a real or pseudo camera number of up to four
digits and press the ENTER soft key.
DWELL
This is a two digit number (1-61) representing the amount
of time in seconds an alarm will be displayed on screen
in sequence queuing mode.
SYSTEM OUTPUT
Each MegaPower 48+ patch panel includes a relay section
that accommodates two connectors for direct wiring to relays
that can be either normally open or normally closed. Any
system output can be energized for an alarm contact.
Perform the following steps to set the system outputs.
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and the DWELL row.
2. Enter a two digit number between 1 and 61 (61 = a
“hold” state) and press the ENTER soft key.
PATTERN NUM (Pattern Number)
Each alarm can be associated with a pattern or preset or
neither. An individual alarm cannot be associated with
both a pattern and a preset. A pattern is represented by a
number from 1 to 3. Perform the following steps to
associate an alarm with a pattern:
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and SYSTEM OUTPUT NUMBER row.
2. Press the ENTER soft key to cycle through the
possible selections: 0 (no relay selected), X1
(energized), X2 (energized), A1 (energized), etc.
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and the PATTERN NUM row.
LINK
This field enables the user to link the video associated
with consecutive alarm contacts to form link salvos.
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and LINK row.
2. Press the ENTER soft key to cycle through the
possible selections:
• If Y (Yes) is selected, the next alarm contact is
linked to the previous entry in a link salvo.
• If N (No) is selected, the next alarm contact is
either not linked to the previous entry, or is the
last entry in a link salvo.
• If S (Salvo) is selected, the alarm contact will call
a system salvo when triggered. The desired salvo
number is specified in the VIDEO SELECT field.
Like the N (No) option, S (Salvo) can also be the
last entry of a link entry.
• Select W (Wired) to indicate that the alarm contact
is a member of a wired set. A wired set is a set of
consecutively numbered alarm contacts such that
if any member of the set is activated, all members
of the set will be activated. By programming a
wired set, the user is eliminating the need to
physically wire a group of alarm contacts together.
Each member of a wired set must be set to W
(Wired) or W* (Wired Group Acknowledge) apart
from the last member of the set, which must be
set to N (No), N* (No Group Acknowledge),
Salvo or S* (Salvo Group Acknowledge).
• The Group Acknowledge (N*, Y*, W*, S*) options
indicate that the alarm contact is a member of a
wired set, which when manually cleared by a
keyboard operator, will clear the alarms for all
members of the wired set.
Note: The Y* (Yes Group Ack) option is not
currently supported.
2. Enter a two digit number (1-3) and press the ENTER
soft key.
PRESET NUM (Preset Number)
Each alarm can be associated with a pattern or preset or
neither. An individual alarm cannot be associated with
both a pattern and a preset. A preset is represented by a
number from 1 to 96. Perform the following steps to
associate an alarm with a preset:
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and the PRESET NUM row.
2. Enter a two digit number between 1 and 96, and press
the ENTER soft key.
AUXILIARY
Each alarm can be associated with one of four auxiliary
relays set to the on or off state. Perform the following
steps to associate an alarm with an auxiliary relay.
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and AUXILIARY NUMBER row.
2. Press the ENTER soft key to cycle through up to eight
auxiliary states: 1-4 ON, 1-3 OFF, and 0 (disabled).
ALARM MSG (Alarm Message)
Each alarm can be associated with an alarm message of
up to 48 characters (two lines) that will be displayed with
the corresponding alarm video. Perform the following
steps to program an alarm message number:
1. Position the cursor at the cross point of the appropriate
ALARM column and ALARM MSG row.
2. Type a number between 1 and 250, and press the
ENTER soft key.

Notes
• Video output X16 (primary matrix, output port 16) is
used by the system to sample video. If video loss
detection is enabled for any system video input, video
output X16 will not be available for video switching.
• Monitors connected to secondary units can only view
cameras connected to that secondary unit. So if an
alarm calls video from one secondary unit to be viewed
on a monitor connected to another secondary unit, a
message will be displayed on-screen informing the
user that the video input is invalid.
• By default, there is no association between any alarm
and monitor. However, each active alarm contact
should be associated with at least one monitor.
Without this association, any video or on-screen
message that is set to be shown when the alarm is
triggered will not be displayed.
5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for all additional associations.

Video Loss Setting Messages
In the MegaPower 48+ system, video loss (or the absence of a video sync signal at a patch panel video input) can be defined
as an alarm event by enabling video loss detection on individual video inputs. The user can determine whether a single video
input is enabled (on) or disabled (off) for video loss by using the 111 F2 and 112 F2 keyboard commands. “111 F2” prints the
video loss setting for the currently called camera. “112 F2” prints the video loss settings for all system cameras. The format

Appendix D: Monitor Identification Numbers
The following table shows how monitors are numbered in the MegaPower 48+ system. The numbering is dependant on the
multi-matrix mode (0-3) that is in use and the number of secondary matrices that have been connected. See page 20 for
more details on multi-matrix configuration.
Monitor numbering is shown in relation to the video output ports to which monitors are connected. Video output ports are
shown by port reference. In this reference, the first character is the matrix reference (X = primary unit, A-F = secondary units)
and the second character is the RS232 port number (1-8) on that matrix.

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.
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 noninfringing 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.
