Selecting Monitors
Monitors display the video from the cameras installed around your facility.
Each monitor has an identification number associated with it. To select a
monitor, use the number buttons to enter the monitor number, and then press
Mon. Once a monitor has been called by the TOUCH TRACKER, you will see
its identification number in the MON field of the LCD. This monitor is
referred to as the called monitor.
The number of monitors available to display video input is determined by
your system configuration. Refer to the appropriate operating instructions to
determine the number of supported monitors.
Controlling Cameras
Each camera installed at your facility has a unique identification number. To
control a camera, you must first select the camera with your TOUCH TRACKER.
Then you can control the zoom, focus, iris, pan and tilt of the selected
camera.
The following illustration identifies the camera controls:
Zoom button: Press away
from you to zoom in; press
towards you to zoom out.

Tracker Ball: Controls the
camera's pan and tilt.

Focus button: Press away from
you to focus near; press towards
you to focus far.
Operator's Manual
The number of cameras that can be controlled by the TOUCH TRACKER
depends upon the system configuration. Refer to the system operating
instructions for additional information about the number of cameras your
system can support.
Selecting a Camera
Each camera has a unique number associated with it. To select a camera, use
the number buttons to enter the camera number, then press Cam. The video
from the camera appears on the called monitor, and the camera number
appears in the bottom left corner of the monitor. Once a camera has been
called by the TOUCH TRACKER, you will also see its number displayed in the
CAM field of the LCD.
Controlling a Camera's Pan and Tilt
Once you have selected a camera, you can manually control the movement of
that camera. Pan is the side-to-side movement of the camera; tilt is the up
and down movement of the camera.
The Tracker Ball controls the panning and tilting of cameras connected to
the system. When the Tracker Ball moves to the right, the camera pans to the
right; when the Tracker Ball moves to the left, the camera pans to the left. By
moving the Tracker Ball up or down, the camera will tilt to the appropriate
angle.
For cameras that support the variable speed features of the TOUCH TRACKER,
how fast or slowly the camera moves is proportional to how far you move the
Tracker Ball from its center position. If you move the Tracker Ball slightly to
the right, the camera will pan slowly to the right. As you move the Tracker
Ball farther to the right, the camera's panning speed will increase until it
reaches its maximum speed. The camera continues to move until the Tracker
Ball is in the center position.
You can simultaneously pan and tilt the camera for diagonal movement. For
example, move the Tracker Ball diagonally up and to the right; this moves
the camera up and to the right.
Chapter 3: Everyday Tasks
3-3
Controlling Zoom and Focus
Once you have selected a camera, you can control its zoom and focus
settings.
Zooming In and Out
Zoom refers to the apparent action of “moving” closer to or farther away
from an object, as seen through the camera lens. The Zoom button is located
to the left of the Tracker Ball. By pressing the Zoom button forward, the
image from the camera appears to move closer to the object. By pressing the
Zoom button back, the image from the camera appears to move away from
the object. If you quickly press and release the Zoom button, there will be
only a slight visible change on the monitor. The longer you press the Zoom
button, the more noticeable will be the response.
Focusing the Camera
Focus refers to the action of adjusting the clarity of the display on the
monitor. The Focus button is located on the right side of the Tracker Ball.
To focus the camera on a distant object, press the Focus button forward (if
the object is farther away than the current focus setting). To focus the camera
on a nearer object, press the Focus button back (if the object is closer than
the current focus setting). You will see the picture on the monitor become
either sharper or fuzzier. Like the Zoom button, the Focus button reacts
based on how long you press the button; the longer you press the Focus
button, the more noticeable the response.
Controlling the Iris
Normally, the brightness of the picture is controlled by the camera's auto
gain function and the auto/manual iris function. However, there may be times

Agreement. The license is non-exclusive and is limited by the terms of this
License Agreement. Customer may not transfer the license except to a party to
whom the equipment is transferred and then only with the written consent of
SEC. The Software and Documentation are being licensed and not sold or leased
to Customer. SEC or its suppliers who have authorized SEC to sublicense
certain of the Software and Documentation retain ownership of the Software and
Documentation. The Software is being licensed for use only on (i) a single
computer (A) owned or leased by Customer and identified in the Equipment
Agreement or (B) otherwise identified in the Documentation as compatible with
the Software, or (ii) a back-up machine if and so long as such computer becomes
temporarily inoperable.

SEC at its established rates. Except as permitted above, copying of the Software
and Documentation is forbidden.
Customer will not sell, assign, sublicense or transfer this license or sell or
otherwise transfer the Software or Documentation (or any portion thereof) to
others. Customer will maintain the Software and Documentation in confidence
and not disclose any data or other information contained in the Software or
Documentation to any party, except for Customer's employees and agents who
require access to the Software for the purposes of Customer's internal business
and who use it in accordance with the terms of this License Agreement.

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

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
non-infringing 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.
