INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing Advanced Technology Video’s QSP-660 four camera Real Time Quad. This
instruction manual describes the powerful features of this product for basic and advanced operation. It also
covers the installation steps that will allow quick and easy integration into your security system.
The following section provides an overview of the operational features of the QSP-660. If you are familiar with
the QSP-660, you should proceed to the Getting Started section on page 4 for step-by-step installation
instructions.
OPERATIONAL FEATURES DESCRIPTION
Live Camera Displays
The QSP-660 is initially in the Live Camera Display mode whenever power is applied to the unit. Live cameras
can be displayed in quad, PIP, dual PIP, split screen, squish screen, or full frame formats. In addition, any
display can be frozen using a front panel button, the IR remote control, or external signal input. In any of these
display modes, the unit can be programmed to sequence one or more cameras with a programmable dwell
time.
 and Playback
DigiLock
In VCR playback mode, digital information is used to compensate for the poor vertical synchronization signals
frequently encountered with time lapse VCRs.
The QSP-660 DigiLock decoding reconstructs the timing so that successfully decoded frames are read into
monitor display memory consistently without any jumping, tearing, or other side-effects of poor synchronization.
VCR Bypass
Many VCRs have on-screen programming menus that require a monitor for programming the VCR. The QSP660 includes a VCR Bypass feature that facilitates VCR programming by allowing the QSP-660 VCR input
(VCR’s video output) to be routed directly to the display monitor.
Advanced Alarm System with Alarm Scheduling
The QSP-660 contains the most advanced and flexible Alarm System available in a video real time quad. The
QSP-660 Advanced Alarm System supports External Alarms and Video Loss Alarms. In addition, the QSP-660
alarm system can be enabled and disabled through a 7-day Alarm Schedule and/or a user programmable
external Master Enable signal.
The QSP-660 has four alarm channels associated with the four camera inputs. Each alarm channel includes a
programmable external alarm and Video Loss Alarm. External alarm inputs are individually selectable for
contact closure or opening as well as logic levels (+5V, 0V). Each alarm channel may also be individually
selected for enable/disable through the QSP-660 Alarm Schedule. The Alarm Schedule is a 7-day timer
schedule with a single ON and OFF time associated with each day of the week. The QSP-660 also has an
external input signal that can be selected between picture Freeze and Alarm Master Enable. The Alarm Master
Enable signal can be used in conjunction with your burglar alarm control panel so that the alarm control panel
can enable or disable the QSP-660 alarm system. For more information on “Alarm Scheduling” see page 13.
Alarm Log and Printing
The QSP-660 has an internal Alarm Log that provides storage for up to 100 alarm events. In addition, its text
can be transmitted to the serial port for printing or storage on a host computer. The Alarm Log is a circular
storage buffer so that the most recent alarm events are always stored. Alarm event text can also be sent directly
to the serial port, when an event occurs, for immediate printing or external processing. Alarm events, which may
be printed and stored in the Alarm Log, include any enabled External Alarms or Video Loss Alarms. For
instructions on the use of the QSP-660 alarm log and printing features see “Alarm Log” on page 15.

If your VCR has internal on-screen menus for its set up, use the VCR Bypass feature of the
QSP-660 to view the VCR’s on-screen menus on the display monitor. See the “VCR Bypass
Function” description on page 3.
5.
At this point, the basic configuration of your QSP-660 is complete. You may now proceed to set
more advanced functions as required for your installation (alarms, camera labels, etc.) Refer to
the Advanced Function menus starting on page 9 for detailed information.
BACK PANEL CONNECTIONS
The four-camera input BNC connectors are labeled LOOP and the factory default configuration is 75 ohm
termination ON. One DIP switch and three jumpers inside the unit (see section below) determine whether each
inputs’ 75 ohm termination is ON or OFF.
Connect the QSP-660 VCR IN to the video output of the VCR and the QSP-660 VCR OUT to the video input of
the VCR. The alarm connector is a standard DB-15, which will mate with the included alarm wire adapter board
or standard computer-type cable. See page 18 for further alarm connection information.

(The factory default is “0”).
The Hold Alarmed Images time determines the image display hold time during multi-camera alarms. When
multiple alarms occur simultaneously, the monitor display will sequence between all cameras with alarms
using this dwell time.
Both delay times are adjustable from 1 to 255 seconds. The default is 1 second for the activation hold and 3
seconds for the sequence dwell time. Camera buttons are used to enter digits 1 through 4 (5-8 is VCR +14) the QUADRANT button is used to enter digit 9, and the PIP button is used to enter 0. The DISPLAY
button stops the editing of a delay value.

Set Alarm Activation Type
Toggles individual camera alarm types between
Contact Closure, Contact Open, Logic Low, or
Logic High, triggering the alarm.
1: Contact Closure
2: Contact Closure
3: Contact Closure
4: Contact Closure
In many applications the switch contact connection is
between the alarm input pin and the chassis or signal ground.
In the QSP-660 the contact connection can be between either
Camera: Select
the ground (alarm connector pin 15) or the +5V (alarm
DISPLAY: Accept and Return
connector pin 13). In some alarming devices this is not a
metallic switch contact but rather a solid state device that
grounds (Logic Low) the input as a normal condition or as an
alarm condition. The four activation modes are provided to
simplify connection to most alarm sources. (The factory default Alarm Activation Type is “Contact Closure”).
The QSP-660 alarm activation is defined as follows:
Contact Closure:
The alarm pin is connected to a current source (either +5V or ground).
Contact Open:
The alarm pin is not connected to any current source (unconnected pin).
Logic Low:
A logic “low” level less than 0.8V (ground) is present at the alarm pin.
Logic High:
A logic “high” level greater than 2.4V (+5V) is present at the alarm pin.
Alarm Log
The Alarm Log menu is used to view the current contents of
the internal Alarm Log and to clear the log or transmit the log
contents to the serial port for printing. The Alarm Log contains
the time, date, camera number, and type of alarm for each
alarm event that has been stored. It can store up to 100 alarm
events at which point new alarm events continue to be stored
and replace the oldest event in the buffer. An Overflow
message is displayed in the upper left corner of the Alarm
Log menu if more than 100 events have occurred indicating
older alarm events have been displaced. An alarm event is
generated when any enabled and valid scheduled External or
Video Loss alarm occurs. For more information see Alarm
Scheduling on page 13. The Alarm Log is a very useful tool
for reviewing the VCR recording allowing rapid location and
review of recorded video time periods of interest.

Security Set Up
Security lockout is a means to disable the QSP-660 menus so
that casual or inadvertent tampering can be prevented. It is
not intended as a hard security measure and can be
bypassed by removing the QSP-660 power followed by
applying power and simultaneously pressing the DISPLAY
button until the ATV name appears. This is not the preferred
method of bypassing security because this step also returns
all internal parameters and options to their factory defaults.
The security feature requires that a security code (password)
of 1 to 9 digits be entered and verified. The security lockout
does not become active until the menus have been exited.
When Button Lock is turned on, it will disable all front panel
operations. A long press of the DISPLAY button will still
enable menus. Security IR Lock and Serial Lock, when On,
will disable all IR remote button and serial interface
operations respectively.

HAND HELD IR REMOTE CONTROL
The hand held remote control allows easy remote operation of your QSP-660
by duplicating the front panel buttons as shown in the diagram. One major
difference between front panel and remote operation is that the individual
camera buttons have been reduced to a single button. In this case, the first
press of the camera button will cause the QSP-660 to display camera 1.
Additional button presses will cycle the selection through each available
camera and back to camera 1.
Please note that the remote control may not work properly in the presence of
strong sun light.
Programming your ATV QSP-660 Remote Control
When first installing or when changing the batteries in your QSP-660 Remote
Control, it may be necessary to reprogram it for use with the
QSP-660.
Note: If your remote control does not appear to work for any
reason, please perform the following steps.
To program the remote control to work with the QSP-660:
1.
Ensure that batteries are properly installed in the QSP-660 Remote
Control.
2.
Turn on the QSP-660 and connect a monitor.
3.
On the QSP-660, press the DISPLAY button to return to DISPLAY
mode. Then press any of the 1-4 buttons to call up a full screen picture.
4.
On the remote control, press and hold the VCR button followed by the
DISPLAY. Hold both buttons together until the indicator lights up and
blinks twice.
5.
Enter your five-digit code. The QSP-660 code set #1 equates to remote code 11414, and code set #2
equates to code set 11344. The red LED will now blink twice and the remote control is set. Your QSP660 is factory set for Code set #2. See page 16 to change the QSP-660 Code set.
The codes are entered by using the four buttons shown in the above diagram (Freeze, Camera,
Quadrant, PIP). For example, to enter the default code for a QSP-660 (code 11344) press the
following:

ALARM INTERCONNECTION ON THE QSP-660
1K Ohm
The alarm connector on the back panel allows input of four external
control signals to affect the behavior of the real time quad under
alarm conditions. Alarm inputs are provided for each camera. A
picture freeze input is also provided to allow the picture to be frozen.
These inputs are normally generated by a switch located at a door,
window, or other point in the installation where a camera is
monitoring activity. Many installations use an open switch that
requires a switch closure to activate the alarm. As part of the QSP660’s normal alarm video processing, an alarm output is generated
on the same back panel connector. In addition to the alarm inputs, a
picture freeze input is also provided. While picture freeze is
activated, any present camera image is retained on the display and
new video information is ignored. A picture freeze does not trigger
the alarm output.

Alarm inputs contain series resistors for ESD (Electro Static
Discharge) and lightning damage protection. The outputs also
contain series resistors to limit output current to prevent damage to
the QSP-660 in the occurrence of shorting out the output pin.
(50 mA maximum)
QSP-660 Alarm Port Internal
Electrical Equivalent
Note: When connecting the inputs and outputs up
to other equipment, consideration should be given
to the limitations introduced by these currentlimiting resistors.
The alarm connector on the QSP-660 is a DB-15,
15-pin connector. For ease of installation, a breakout
adapter is provided with the 16th terminal connected to
chassis ground. A simple alarm connection is shown to
the right using the QSP-660 alarm breakout adapter. In
the example to the right, switches are connected
directly to the alarm inputs, and a single output is
connected to some signaling device or to a controlled
piece of equipment. In this case, an external resistor is
required to pull the output up to +5V (High) indicating a
non-alarm condition.
The external resistor makes connection to higher
voltage systems possible, such as a 12 VDC
automobile system. In this application, the pull-up
resistor is not tied to the QSP-660 +5V pin, but to the
higher voltage system. Voltages greater than +5V must
not exceed 30 VDC and the current through the output
pin must not exceed 50 mA.
Failure to remain within the 30 VDC and 50 mA
restriction could damage either the QSP-660, the
output signaling device, or both.

In some installations, the alarm output is used to activate or deactivate high voltage and/or high current circuitry
(110 VAC lights, siren, etc.) which cannot be controlled directly by the QSP-660.
The easiest method to address the above cases is to use a relay, which has the number and rating on its
contacts sufficient for the alarm output. Shown below are two methods to control a high current or high voltage
device using a relay with a single, normally open contact. An internal, current limiting resistor for the pin 9 +5V
supply will limit the usable relay current to something less than 10 mA (depending on the coil impedance). If a
higher voltage or higher current relay is used, an external supply is required. Under these conditions the open
circuit voltage (no alarm) on pin 9 must not exceed 30 VDC and the closed circuit current (alarm active) into pin
9 must be less than 50 mA.
The breakout adapter board is numbered compatibly with the DB-15 connector so the following table is
applicable to either.
Note: Pin 16 is only present on the Breakout Adapter and is connected to chassis ground.

RS-232 REMOTE CONTROL INTERFACE
The QSP-660 has a built in RS-232 serial interface that supports remote control of the QSP-660 through simple
ASCII commands. These commands provide access to the front panel button operations just as the IR Remote
Control does.
The QSP-660 serial interface is fixed at 2400 baud, 8 bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. It uses the very simple
command format:
<command> <return>
The command is 2 character or 2 character plus parameter and must be followed by a carriage return. The
QSP-660 will respond with:
>
if the command was recognized, or
?
if the command was not recognized or is invalid
The following commands are supported by the QSP-660 serial interface and behave just as if the indicated front
panel button was pushed:
BD
Display button
BS
Sequence button - will cause QSP-660 to start or stop sequencing during live mode.
BP
PIP button
BQ
Quadrant button
BV
VCR button - will cause the QSP-660 to enter or exit VCR playback mode
BF
Freeze button - will cause the QSP-660 to freeze during live mode
BB
VCR button - will cause the QSP-660 to enter the VCR bypass mode
BC n
Camera buttons - is a number 1 through 4 corresponding to the camera number. A space or tab
must be entered between the command and the number.
BZ
Zoom button – will expand a quadrant of any image in playback. Repeated entries of this
command will rotate through the quadrants.
Commands only take a fraction of a second to execute within the QSP-660. However, there must be a
delay of at least 0.3 seconds (300 milliseconds) between the carriage return and start of the next
command. The command decode prompt (>) may occur before the command has finished executing and
should not be used as an indication to send the next command.
For proper RS-232 operation, the 8 position DIP switch, SW 5, located next to the DB-9 RS-232 interface
connector within the QSP-660 must be set to the factory default positions as indicated below. The DB-9
connector pinout corresponds to a standard 9-pin DCE (modem) device.
