Overview of functions
Network video server
VideoJet 8008 and VideoJet 8004 are network video servers for eight independent video channels. They are primarily designed for encoding video and control
data for transmission over an IP network. With the audio versions, audio signals
can also be transmitted to and from compatible units. The use of existing networks means that integration with CCTV systems or local networks can be
achieved quickly and easily.
The VideoJet 8008 offers full D1/4CIF resolution at a complete image rate of
25 images per second for 8 channels. The VideoJet 8004 is the more economic
variant with half the image rate per channel.
VideoJet 8008 and VideoJet 8004 are designed as desktop units and intended for
installation in the switch cabinet. Mounting in a 19-inch rack using the mounting kit
supplied is a quick and easy operation.
Receiver
Compatible MPEG-4 enabled hardware decoders (for example the VIP XD) can
be used as receivers. Computers with decoding software such as VIDOS or
computers with the Microsoft Internet Explorer Web browser can also be used
as receivers.
Video encoding
VideoJet 8008 and VideoJet 8004 use the MPEG-4 video compression standard. Thanks to efficient encoding, the data rate remains low even with high
image quality and can also be adapted to local conditions within wide limits. In
this manner, the simultaneous encoding of all eight video channels is supported.
Dual Streaming in the VideoJet 8008
Dual Streaming allows the incoming data stream to be encoded simultaneously
according to two different, individually customized profiles. With VideoJet 8008,
two data streams are created per camera that can serve different purposes, for
example, one can be used for local recording and one can be optimized for
transmission over the LAN.
The VideoJet 8004 does not offer Dual Streaming.

EN | 12
Installation and Operating Manual | VideoJet 8008 / VideoJet 8004
Multicast
In suitably configured networks, the multicast function enables simultaneous
real-time video transmission to multiple receivers. The UDP and IGMP V2 protocols must be implemented on the network for this function.
DVR
The integrated hard drive means that VideoJet 8008 and VideoJet 8004 can be
used as digital video recorders for local long-term recording. Both units support
ANR technology, which guarantees seamless recording without gaps with
VIDOS-NVR, even during network failures.
Remote control
For remote control of external units such as pan or tilt heads for cameras or
motorized zoom lenses, control data is transmitted via the bidirectional serial
interface. This interface can also be used to transmit transparent data.
Configuration
The units can be configured with a Web browser via the local network (Intranet)
or via the Internet. In the same way, firmware updates and fast loading of device
configurations are possible.
Snapshots
Individual video images (snapshots) can be called up from the unit, stored on the
computer's hard drive or displayed in a separate browser window in JPEG format.
Backup
The LIVEPAGE and MEDIA-REPLAY pages both contain an icon for saving the
video images shown as a file on your computer's hard drive. Video sequences
can be stored by means of a mouse click and can be redisplayed using the
MPEG viewer supplied as part of the scope of delivery.

Profile name:
You can enter a new name for the profile here. The name is then displayed in
the MPEG-4 encoder field in the list of selectable profiles.
Target data rate:
You can limit the data rate for the unit to optimize utilization of the bandwidth in
your network. The target data rate should be set according to the desired picture
quality for typical scenes with no excessive motion.
For complex images or frequent changes of image content due to frequent
movements, this limit can be temporarily exceeded up to the value you enter in
the Max. data rate field.
Max. data rate:
This maximum data rate is not exceeded under any circumstances. Depending
on the video quality settings for the I- and P-frames, this fact can result in individual images being skipped.
The value entered here should be at least 10% higher than the value entered in
the Target data rate field.
P-frame video quality:
This setting allows you to adjust the image quality of the P-frames depending on
the movement within the image. The Auto option automatically adjusts to the
optimum combination of movement and image definition (focus). Selecting Manual allows you to set a value between 4 and 31 on the slide bar. The value
4 represents the best image quality with, if necessary, a lower frame refresh rate
depending on the settings for the maximum data rate. A value of 31 results in a
very high refresh rate and lower image quality.
I-frame video quality:
This setting allows you to adjust the image quality of the I-frames. The Auto
option automatically adjusts the quality to the settings for the P-frame video
quality. Selecting Manual allows you to set a value between 4 and 31 on the
slide bar. The value 4 represents the best image quality with, if necessary, a
lower frame refresh rate depending on the settings for the maximum data rate.
A value of 31 results in a very high refresh rate and lower image quality.

I-frame distance:
This parameter allows you to set the intervals in which the I-frames will be
coded. 0 means auto mode, whereby the video server inserts I-frames as necessary. An entry of 1 indicates that I-frames are continuously generated.
An entry of 2 indicates that only every second image is an I-frame, and 3 only
every third image etc.; the frames in between are coded as P-frames.
Encoding interval:
The figure selected here determines the interval at which images are encoded
and transmitted. For example, entering 4 means that only every fourth image is
encoded, the following three are skipped - this can be particularly advantageous
with low bandwidths.

Dynamic DNS server IP address:
When operating a unit on the Internet, dynamic addresses are used to ensure
efficient use of the available IP address pool. That is, the unit is reassigned a
(changing) IP address each time a new connection is made. Access is easier if
the unit is listed in a DNS server. It registers there at regular intervals and leaves
the unit name and its IP address. If you wish to establish an Internet connection
to a unit, it is sufficient to enter the appropriate unit name together with the URL
of the DNS server. This then reports on the current Internet IP address used to
establish the connection.

Multicasting
In addition to a 1:1 connection between an encoder and a single receiver (unicast), the unit can enable multiple receivers to receive the video signal from an
encoder simultaneously. The device either duplicates the data stream itself and
then distributes it to multiple receivers (Multi-unicast) or it sends a single data
stream to the network, where the data stream is simultaneously distributed to
multiple receivers in a defined group (Multicast). For each of the eight encoders,
you can enter a separate multicast address and the relevant port for each
stream.
For Dual Streaming compatible units, you can toggle between the streams by
clicking the appropriate tab pages.
Note
Multicast operation requires a multicast-enabled network that uses the
UDP and the Internet Group Management IGMP protocols. Other group
management protocols are not supported. The TCP protocol does not support multicast connections.
A special IP address (class D address) must be configured for multicast operation in a multicast-enabled network.
The network must support group IP addresses and the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP V2). The address range is 224.0.1.0 to 239.255.255.255.

The multicast address can be the same for multiple streams. However, it will be
necessary to use a different port in each case so that multiple data streams are
not sent simultaneously using the same port and multicast address.
Note
The settings must be made individually for each video input and, on
Dual Streaming compatible units, for each stream. The numbering is the
same as the labeling of the video inputs on the rear panel of the unit.
Multicast address video 1 to Multicast address video 8:
Enter a valid multicast address for each stream from the relevant encoder to be
operated in multicast mode (duplication of the data streams in the network).
With the setting 0.0.0.0 the encoder for the relevant stream operates in multi-unicast mode (copying of data streams in the unit). The unit supports multi-unicast
connections for up to five simultaneously connected receivers.
Note
Duplication of data places a heavy demand on the unit and can lead to impairment of the image quality under certain circumstances.
Multicast port 1 to Multicast port 8:
Assign a different port to each data stream if there are simultaneous data
streams at the same multicast address.
Enter the port address of the required stream here.
Streaming:
Click the checkbox to activate multicast streaming mode for the relevant stream.
The selected check boxes are marked with a tick.
Multicast packet TTL:
You can enter a value to specify how long the multicast data packets are active

Target data rate:
You can limit the data rate for the unit to optimize utilization of the bandwidth in
your network. The target data rate should be set according to the desired picture
quality for typical scenes with no excessive motion.
For complex images or frequent changes of image content due to frequent
movements, this limit can be temporarily exceeded up to the value you enter in
the Max. data rate field.
Max. data rate:
This maximum data rate is not exceeded under any circumstances. Depending
on the video quality settings for the I- and P-frames, this fact can result in individual images being skipped.
The value entered here should be at least 10% higher than the value entered in
the Target data rate field.
P-frame video quality:
This setting allows you to adjust the image quality of the P-frames depending on
the movement within the image. The Auto option automatically adjusts to the
optimum combination of movement and image definition (focus). Selecting
Manual allows you to set a value between 4 and 31 on the slide bar. The value
4 represents the best image quality with, if necessary, a lower frame refresh rate
depending on the settings for the maximum data rate. A value of 31 results in a
very high refresh rate and lower image quality.
I-frame video quality:
This setting allows you to adjust the image quality of the I-frames. The Auto
option automatically adjusts the quality to the settings for the P-frame video
quality. Selecting Manual allows you to set a value between 4 and 31 on the
slide bar. The value 4 represents the best image quality with, if necessary, a
lower frame refresh rate depending on the settings for the maximum data rate.
A value of 31 results in a very high refresh rate and lower image quality.
I-frame distance:
This parameter allows you to set the intervals in which the I-frames will be
coded. 0 means auto mode, whereby the video server inserts I-frames as necessary. An entry of 1 indicates that I-frames are continuously generated. An
entry of 2 indicates that only every second image is an I-frame, and 3 only every
third image etc.; the frames in between are coded as P-frames.

Partitioning
Eight partitions can be set up for the unit's hard drive, in a similar manner to the
partitioning often found on computer hard drives. Parameters such as size, quality and type of video recording or compression standard used can be specified
for each partition. Modifying these parameters leads to reorganization, during
which stored data is lost.
The unit requires a dedicated partition for the recordings of each connected
camera. Each partition is linked to its own encoder or camera input: camera
input Video 1 with partition number 01, camera input Video 2 with partition
02 etc. This assignment cannot be modified. As a result, all numbers are always
displayed in the list, regardless of whether a corresponding partition is available
or has been deleted. For recording from eight cameras, it is necessary to configure all eight possible partitions. Eight partitions are already preset in the
default configuration.
All partitions are listed in the table on the Partitioning page together with their
partition name, number, quality type and size.
In addition, the page provides you with an overview of the drive data, for example total memory, number of partitions created and the partitioned and unpartitioned memory space. A pie chart indicates how much memory space is partitioned for recordings.

Creating a partition
Caution
Modifications to the size or number of partitions lead to the entire hard
drive being reorganized and the loss of all sequences stored on the drive.
Consequently, you should check the recordings before any modification to
the parameters mentioned and back up important sequences on the computer's hard drive.
Note
If the maximum number of eight partitions has been set up, you can only
create a new partition after deleting at least one of the existing partitions
(see page 86).
Creating a new partition is performed using separate help windows in which
information is presented to you and you are led step by step through the necessary settings.
The process most be completed for each partition to be set up on the hard drive.
After starting up the wizard, you can select the total number of partitions to be
set up. The wizard is then automatically started up as often as necessary to configure all the partitions.

Motion detector
The unit has an integrated video sensor that can detect changes in the video signal on the basis of image processing. Such changes are due primarily to movements in the camera's field of view.
You can configure the video sensor for any encoder, i.e. for any connected camera.
The sensitivity of the video sensor can be adjusted, so that an alarm is generated
only if specified values are exceeded. Various options for tamper protection allow
you to set the reaction to tampering with cameras and video lines.
In order for the sensor to function, the following conditions must be met:
❚ The motion detector must be enabled.
❚ At least one sensor field must be activated.
❚ The individual parameters must be set for the operating environment and the
desired responses configured.
❚ The sensitivity must be set to a value greater than zero.

Ethernet link type:
If the unit is connected to the network via a switch, both must have the same
default for the type of network connection. If necessary, ask your network administrator what value the switch is set to.
The Auto setting automatically detects the network connection. If necessary,
you can specify the value 10 or 100 MBit/s for full or half-duplex mode (FD or
HD) or 1 GBit/s FD.
Caution
Malfunctions such as image faults can occur if the network does not have
enough capacity to transmit the maximum data rate generated by the unit.
Dynamic DNS server IP address:
When operating a unit on the Internet, dynamic addresses are used to ensure efficient use of the available IP address pool. That is, the unit is reassigned a (changing) IP address each time a new connection is made. Access is easier if the unit
is listed in a DNS server. It registers there at regular intervals and leaves the unit
name and its IP address. If you wish to establish an Internet connection to a unit,
it is sufficient to enter the appropriate unit name together with the URL of the
DNS server. This then reports on the current Internet IP address used to establish the connection.
Dynamic DNS contact interval:
Enter the desired refresh interval in seconds here.

Multicasting
In addition to a 1:1 connection between an encoder and a single receiver (unicast), the unit can enable multiple receivers to receive the video signal from an
encoder simultaneously. The device either duplicates the data stream itself and
then distributes it to multiple receivers (Multi-unicast) or it sends a single data
stream to the network, where the data stream is simultaneously distributed to
multiple receivers in a defined group (Multicast). For each of the eight encoders,
you can enter a separate multicast address and the relevant port for each
stream.
For Dual Streaming compatible units, you can toggle between the streams by
clicking the appropriate tab pages.
Note
Multicast operation requires a multicast-enabled network that uses the
UDP and the Internet Group Management IGMP protocols. Other group
management protocols are not supported. The TCP protocol does not support multicast connections.
A special IP address (class D address) must be configured for multicast operation in a multicast-enabled network.
The network must support group IP addresses and the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP V2). The address range is 224.0.1.0 to 239.255.255.255.

Installation and Operating Manual | VideoJet 8008 / VideoJet 8004
The multicast address can be the same for multiple streams. However, it will be
necessary to use a different port in each case so that multiple data streams are
not sent simultaneously using the same port and multicast address.
Note
The settings must be made individually for each video input and, on
Dual Streaming compatible units, for each stream. The numbering is the
same as the labeling of the video inputs on the rear panel of the unit.
Multicast address video 1 to Multicast address video 8:
Enter a valid multicast address for each stream from the relevant encoder to be
operated in multicast mode (duplication of the data streams in the network).
With the setting 0.0.0.0 the encoder for the relevant stream operates in multi-unicast mode (copying of data streams in the unit). The unit supports multi-unicast
connections for up to five simultaneously connected receivers.
Note
Duplication of data places a heavy demand on the unit and can lead to impairment of the image quality under certain circumstances.
Multicast port 1 to Multicast port 8:
Assign a different port to each data stream if there are simultaneous data
streams at the same multicast address.
Enter the port address of the required stream here.
Streaming:
Click the checkbox to activate multicast streaming mode for the relevant stream.
The selected check boxes are marked with a tick.
Multicast packet TTL:
You can enter a value to specify how long the multicast data packets are active
on the network. This value must be greater than one if multicast is to be run via
a router.
Multicast address audio: (audio versions only)
For special applications, you can enter a separate multicast address for the
audio data stream.

Testing the network connection
You can use the ping command to check the connection between two IP
addresses. This allows you to test whether a unit in the network is active.
– Open the DOS command prompt.
– Type ping followed by the IP address of the unit.
If the unit is found, the response appears as Reply from ... followed by the
number of bytes sent and the transmission time in milliseconds. If not, the unit
cannot be accessed over the network. This might be because:
❚ The unit is not properly connected to the network. Check the cable connections in this case.
❚ The unit is not correctly integrated into the network. Check the IP address,
the subnet mask and the gateway address.
Restart (Reset)
If necessary, you can restart the unit, for example if it no longer responds. In this
case all settings are maintained.
– In the address field of the Web browser, enter /reset after the unit's
IP address (e.g. 192.168.0.88/reset).
A new page with the message going to reset Reconnecting in ... seconds
appears, showing the length of time to the next automatic reconnection.
