Keyboard

The NSR series is a dedicated surveillance recorder equipped with preinstalled surveillance software that runs on their dedicated operating system. The NSR allows you to monitor and record network camera images (JPEG or MPEG4). It also allows you to play back the recorded images and search through them, making the NSR a truly versatile monitoring tool.

• When using RealShot Manager as a remote controller for the NSR, select

[Controller] during installation of RealShot Manager.

• With two monitors connected to the NSR, you can perform settings and monitoring operations on monitor 1 and hot spot monitoring on monitor 2.

Chapter 1 Introduction

Control compatible cameras from remote locations

You can pan, tilt, and perform zoom operations of compatible cameras from the

NSR network. The NSR provides control of focus and bright level, and also supports audio recording from network cameras.

* Microphones and speakers sold separately.

Compatible with analog cameras

You can monitor and record images from analog cameras when you purchase and install an optional camera server (SNT-V704).

The network ports supporting for gigabit (1000 Base-T)

As the NSR-100/50 is equipped with three network ports, you can configure the system so that the camera network is kept separate, preventing the camera network data from being affected by the other network data. There is more than enough space to receive data from multiple cameras because the three ports support gigabit transfer rates.

The NSR-25 is equipped with one network port supporting gigabit transfer rates.

Large-capacity hard disks allow recording for long periods of time

The NSR is equipped with large-capacity hard disks. The NSR-100 can record up to approximately 920 GB

1)

of data, the NSR-50 can record up to approximately

460 GB

1)

of data, and the NSR-25 can record up to approximately 230GB1) of data. For example, if you record images from 16 cameras at 1 fps

2)

(VGA, JPEG; one frame equals about 31 KB) with the NSR-100, you can record approximately a month’s worth of images (15 hours a day)

3)

.

1) Includes the database capacity managed by the internal software.

2) fps: frames per second.

3) When set to RAID 0.

Slim type (2U), space-saving 19-inch rack mounting model

With the optional rack mounting kit (sold separately), the recorder can be installed in a standard universal pitch EIA 19-inch rack.

High-resolution up to 480 fps (VGA, JPEG) recording

The NSR-100 can support up to 64 cameras, the NSR-50 can support up to 32 cameras, and the NSR-25 can support up to 20 cameras

1)

. The NSR-100 records images at a total frame rate of 480 fps

2)

(240 fps with the NSR-50, 120 fps with the NSR-25), VGA (640

× 480 pixels) resolution, JPEG (1 frame approx.

31 KB) image format, for a crisp image quality.

1) For cameras that support image sizes of 1,280

×

960 pixels or more, the NSR-100 can support up to 8 cameras, and the NSR-50/NSR-25 can support up to 4 cameras.

2) Maximum frame rate when 16 cameras are connected to the recorder. Each camera has a frame rate of approximately 30 fps. This frame rate may become less because of fragmentation on the internal hard disks. Values are based on Sony measurements.

These values are not guaranteed, as performance may change due to the user’s operating environment.

High reliability

The NSR-100/50 offers high reliability through:

• NSR-100: RAID 0, 1+0, and 5

• NSR-50: spanning

1)

and RAID 1

When used with a RAID 1, 1+0 or 5, the system can continue functioning even if one of the hard disks develops a malfunction. Similarly, because the system software and settings are stored on the internal flash memory of the NSR, if the system software develops a malfunction, lightning-quick restoration of the system is possible. The NSR also supports uninterruptible power supplies

(UPS)

2)

, making them extremely reliable systems.

1) Spanning: Function allowing several hard disks to be virtually seen as one.

2) Sony recommendation only.

Chapter 1 Introduction

Notes

• When you use RAID 0 with the NSR-100, spanning with the NSR-50, or the

NSR-25 there is no data redundancy. Also, storage capacity varies according with the RAID level.

• RAID is not available for the NSR-25.

Easy monitoring operation by remote control

In addition to using your keyboard and mouse to operate the NSR, but you can also use the joystick and buttons of the optional RM-NS10 remote control unit.

Furthermore, the screen layout is based on equally split screen segments, and can be used seamlessly with a conventional recorder.

Note

You will need to use your keyboard and mouse to make initial NSR settings.

Other features

• You can monitor, record, play back, and operate images from cameras that support 1,280

× 960 pixel size.

• You can display the images from up to 64 cameras (8

× 8 images) on one screen.

• The NSR is capable of manual, scheduled, and alarm recording, among others.

• The NSR is equipped with a motion detection function

1)

(Video Motion

Detection (Recorder)).

• Run searches for recorded images by camera name, date, alarm, and other methods.

• Create privacy zones by using the dynamic masking functions

2)

. Dynamic masking covers pan, tilt, and zoom.

• Precise alarm processing is made possible by performing the various types of filtering

3)

that use the image processing results sent from the camera in the form of object information metadata. Because filtering can be applied to metadata that has already been recorded, you can also search for areas of interest after recording is finished.

• With an internal drive, the NSR-100/50 is capable of writing data to DVD-R,

DVD+R, or CD-R/RW media.

The NSR-25 is capable of writing data to CD-R/RW media.

• Audio recording and playback

4)

are also supported for compatible cameras.

1) Some functions are limited depending on the number of cameras connected.

2) Some functions are limited depending on which camera models are connected.

3) To perform motion detection and object detection using metadata, a camera that supports motion detection by metadata is required. The use of metadata is supported for up to 32 cameras.

4) The optional active speakers are required.

Caution

When using NTP settings, pay attention to the following:

• When performing time synchronization with an NTP server, you must restart the NSR after selecting the [Synchronize with NTP Server] check box on the “Main” screen. In addition, the NTP server must be running normally when the NSR is restarted.

• If the NTP settings on the NSR are enabled and DHCP is used to acquire the NSR address, the NTP server information provided by the DHCP server on the same network as the NSR is given priority over the NTP server information set with the NSR.

• Once you set the time on the NSR manually, time synchronization with an NTP server may no longer be possible.

• We recommend configuring the NTP settings from the “Main” screen, even though configuring them from the Setup Menu may sometimes result in the [Enable NTP Server] check box on the “Main” screen being selected.

• When the [Synchronize with NTP Server] checkbox is cleared, “0.0.0.0” is entered in the [Address] field.

• When multiple overwrite settings are configured for a storage location, deletion may be biased toward a particular camera on the storage

Chapter 5 Settings

91

location. We strongly recommend that you either configure a single overwrite setting, or that you estimate, in advance, the capacity you will use, based on the image size and required storage period specified for the camera, and configure the deletion settings for recordings accordingly.

• When the recorded data of normal recordings is overwritten, multiple files in a single record are deleted at once. This may cause all the files of a particular camera to be deleted at once. By configuring the following settings, you can ensure that data from multiple cameras is deleted more uniformly.

- In a recurrent schedule for normal recording, insert at least one second of blank space per day.

Ex.) Start time: 00:00:00 End time: 23:59:59

Notes

• If the recording capacity of the built-in hard disk is insufficient, you can expand it with external storage. For details about storage expansion, contact your dealer.

• The following storage locations are defined by the NSR and cannot be deleted.

- Default

- Alarm

- Manual

- Normal

The above four storage locations are actually located in the same partition but in different directories (folders). As a result, the capacity and total size of these storage locations are all the same, but deleting and overwriting are performed independently for each directory (folder).

• For NSR storage locations, you can configure the main settings related to deletion and overwriting of recordings, and set the storage period for each type of recorded image. However, it is not possible to assign a capacity to each storage location.

• The Default location is the default save location for each camera. To set different save locations for each camera, you can use the storage settings in “Main” under “Camera” on the Configuration screen.

Four storage setting examples are provided below. Select a storage location according to your objective and the recording type selected in the camera storage settings.

Examples:

Default :

Delete -disable, data overwrite-enable (20%)

Alarm :

Delete -enable (30%, 366 days), data overwrite -disable

Manual :

Delete -enable (40%, 7 days), data overwrite - disable

Normal :

Delete -enable (50%, 31 days), data overwrite - disable

Descriptions:

Default :

Setting a Camera by Using Generic Camera

This version of NSR supports the “Generic Camera.” NSR obtains various information data from a camera when registering it and connects to the camera based on this information. Because the protocol and procedures for obtaining information from a Generic Camera are standardized, cameras sold in future will also be supported, provided that they follow the standard.

Note

This version of NSR supports Generic Camera version 1.

Operation flow when using Generic Camera

The procedure for registering and setting up a camera with the Generic Camera option is slightly different from regular camera registration. First, you must select a combination of functions and then perform setup. When you select the combination of functions, the setting range for each item is determined automatically. Therefore it is important to select the combination of functions carefully with regard to the intended use of the camera.

Caution

• Available settings and setting value ranges will vary depending on the function combination. Be sure to make settings that are matched to the intended operation.

Chapter 5 Settings

106

Example 1: When a certain codec is used, the motion detection function will not be available. Choose a combination with this codec only if motion detection function settings are not required.

Example 2: When a combination with an available setting value range of 1

- 50 has been selected, the available range on the respective setup screens will be limited to 1 - 50 even if the camera setting range is 1 - 100.

• Be sure to select the function combination first and then make the settings. If you change the function combination after starting to make settings, the available range for values will also change depending on the function combination, which may lead to earlier settings being altered.

Example: 70 was selected for an item with an available range of 1 - 100, but the control range later became 1 - 50 because of a function combination change, and the setting was altered to 25.

• After changing a setting, be sure to check all settings before starting operation.

If the changed value is within the available range, there will be no problem, but if it is out of range, the setting will automatically be changed to a value within the range.

When using a metadata-compatible camera, you need to configure VMF (Video

Motion Filter) settings for motion detection by metadata.

A VMF is a filter for detecting specific motion phenomena from motion-related metadata generated by the camera.

VMFs are available in two types, Moving and Unattended, and up to three can be managed together as a VMF package. The filters in a VMF package can be combined either sequentially, whereby each filter must be satisfied in sequential order to trigger an alarm, or in parallel, whereby satisfying any one filter is sufficient to trigger an alarm.

Chapter 5 Settings

114

Overview of Motion Detection by Camera Image Metadata

Notes

• [VMF] only appears when the camera supports motion detection by metadata.

• To configure a VMF, the [VMF Support] check box must be selected on the

“Main” screen in “General” (page 84).

• To perform motion detection and object detection using metadata, a camera that supports motion detection by metadata is required.

• When using VMF motion detection with the [Existing] filter type, the alarm state is maintained after object detection for as long as the object continues to be present. As a result, if a second alarm is triggered in this state, alarm recording will not start. To have NSR record the second alarm, select [Alarm

End] in the recording schedule settings (page 139). This ensures that

everything is recorded during the alarm period, including the second alarm.

• When object detection metadata is processed, the object detection status is maintained for approximately three hours after detection, but the VMF detection status is cleared after approximately ten seconds.

• A VMF package can only process the live camera image of one camera at a time.

• When metadata is recorded, either motion detection metadata or non-motion detection metadata is selected, based on the VMF being applied at the time.

The order of priority is determined as follows:

1

If something has been specified in the schedule, priority is determined by whether the VMF package is “Moving” or “Unattended”.

2

If a VMF package is not specified, priority is determined based on the default package.

3

If a default package is not specified either, the metadata is recorded as motion detection metadata.

Caution

Object detection requires an approximately 40 second initialization period before starting. Also, moving objects that have remained still for approximately 40 seconds are regarded as unattended. These times may be extended depending on the circumstances.

Record Segmenting in Continuous Long-Term Recording

When you record continuously over a long period (such as from 00:00 to 24:00 every day for a long time), the number of configuration files for a record may exceed 10,000*. When this happens, the record is segmented, and subsequent data is recorded as a new record. When a record is segmented, the parts appear as separate records during searches, etc.

* The number 10,000 is the total number of files since recording started. It includes files that are deleted with the cleanup and data overwrite functions.

The time period segmented will differ depending on the frame rate and resolution.

Camera Frame Rate Details

The frame rates (frames/second) available for selection on the “REC Schedule” screen are common to all cameras, but some cameras may not support some values. A message appears when the selected frame rate is not supported by the camera you are configuring.

For a Generic Camera, available frame rate settings are listed in the “Camera-

Main” and “REC Schedule” windows.

Caution

When using the SNT-V704, you can set frame rates compatible with either

NTSC or PAL under [FPS] on the “Camera-Main” screen.

The following values can be set for the SNT-V704 under [FPS] on the “Camera-

Main” screen and under [Frames/second] on the “REC Schedule” screen.

Important Precautions (Read Carefully)

This section describes important precautions regarding the operation and configuration of the NSR. The content of this section is subject to change without notice.

There may also be important details on limitations other than the ones described below. Be sure to consult your dealer before use.

• If the length of time for a recording is exceedingly short, a recording with a duration of “0” may be created. This is more likely to occur when MPEG 4 is selected for the video codec setting. You cannot play back recorded images with durations of “0.” To prevent this problem from occurring during scheduled

Miscellaneous

175

Notes

alarm recordings, specify a duration longer than 10 seconds after an alarm under “Post Alarm” of the alarm recording settings. (The default duration is 10 seconds for newly added schedules, so be sure to specify a longer duration.)

• If you specify a value exceeding the limit for the total frame rate or the system’s processing load is exceedingly high, operations in the recording schedule settings screen may become slow, and the changing or addition of settings may not be possible. In this situation, remove the LAN cable connected to the camera before configuring the settings. In situations where connection to the camera is necessary (such as configuration of camera settings), change the time settings for the schedule, and change the other settings so that recording and motion detection are stopped before configuring the camera settings. Changing and deleting recording schedules may also be possible by connecting a remote client (RealShot Manager Controller).

• If the Error LED and 1 and 2 of the Status LED on the front panel of the NSR are lit, the NSR may be in a state in which recording is not possible. If recording is not possible even after restarting the unit, refer to

“Troubleshooting” in the Installation Manual. If the problem is still not resolved, restart the unit using the supplied NSR Series Recovery CD, and execute “Check file system.” If “Check file system” fails, consult your dealer.

• When connecting to RealShot Manager Controller (a remote client), always use the Network Device 2 network on the NSR-100/50.

• If the HDD LED on the front panel of the unit indicates a hard disk malfunction when using the NSR-50, do not remove the hard disk, and contact your dealer. The problem will not be resolved by replacing the hard disk while the unit is powered on and running, and doing so risks damage beyond repair.

• When the NSR is used for long-term monitoring, the screen may refresh periodically, depending on the settings. Although the screen goes dark for several seconds to several tens of seconds while it is refreshed, this has absolutely no effect on recording. However, because the screen returns to the default monitoring state after refreshing, it does not preserve the playback status of recorded images or any temporary camera selections for monitor windows. It is also necessary to restart any monitoring sequences that were running before the screen refreshed.

This section describes some notes on the operation and configuration of the

NSR. The content of this section is subject to change without notice. There may also be limitations other than the ones described below. Be sure to consult your dealer before use.

Monitoring Window

• When you move the mouse focus off of a popup window, the item currently in focus cannot be determined. Move the mouse cursor back onto the popup window to confirm.

• If you continuously click on a drop down menu button too quickly, the menu may not open. If this occurs, move the mouse focus away from the button temporarily before clicking again.

• You can perform camera control operations while displaying monitor layouts in sequence, but control may become unstable if the monitor layout transitions in the middle of a control operation. When performing camera control operations, disable sequence display beforehand.

• Depending on the size of a monitor window, additional information such as the date and time, number of frames received, and number of frames displayed may not fit into the window frame, and the information may be cut off or not

Miscellaneous

176

display. Reduce the number of display items, or select a layout with fewer monitor windows. You can also try shortening the camera name.

• During playback, a large value appears momentarily for the bandwidth and number of frames received. Refer to the number of frames displayed to confirm playback performance.

• The number of incoming frames is not displayed for layouts with 17 or more camera images. The number of frames recorded is maintained, but the number of frames displayed is limited. Confirm the number of incoming frames with a layout of 16 or fewer cameras.

• When the NSR is experiencing a high processing load, video images may freeze momentarily, and response time for button functions such as camera control operations (PTZ) may become slow. There may also be a delay in the image display of the NSR unit when compared to the image display of a remote client.

• When you select Border for the mask type, be aware that part of the mask may be cut off depending on the size of the monitor window. If this occurs, increase the width of the mask to make sure it displays correctly.

Camera Control

• After you register a camera, the AUTO buttons under Camera Control light up when focus/brightness adjustment is available. If the actual focus/brightness settings are not that of the auto settings, click the [–] or [+] button and then click the AUTO button to adjust to the auto settings.

• When you perform camera control operations (PTZ) while dynamic masking is active, the processing speed for mask tracking may decrease, exposing the masked area. Be sure to cover a sufficient area when configuring the masking settings.

• Direct pan and tilt, area zoom, and zoom operations with the mouse wheel can only be performed while pressing the Ctrl key on the left side of the keyboard.

The Ctrl key on the right side of the keyboard does not work for these operations.

Recording, Playback, and Searches

• When you activate alarm recording in a recording schedule, any alarms that occur during an alarm recording will be ignored until the first alarm recording process completes.

• When you stop recording for multiple cameras simultaneously, some of the recordings may fail to stop if the NSR is experiencing a high processing load.

If recording does not stop, perform the stop operation again.

• Searches for recorded images (quick search, PLAYBACK button, search screen) may time out when the NSR experiences a high processing load. If this happens, switch to the live image, and perform the search for recorded images again. If the search still times out, lower the processing load of the NSR, such as by reducing the number of monitor windows displayed, and then perform the search for recorded images again.

• Up to 5,000 results matching the specified search criteria are displayed in the

Search screen. If there are more than 5,000 recorded images matching the criteria, narrow the criteria, and perform the search again. Be aware that the number of search results is not displayed.

• Image updating stops temporarily when searches (quick search, PLAYBACK button, Search screen, Export screen) are in progress. Updates resume once a search is complete.

• If you enable cleanup for a storage location, a system alert will not be generated when the remaining capacity for that location is lower than the value set for the alert function.

• The maximum duration for a pre-alarm of a schedule can be as long as the buffer for recorded images (approximately 5 MB) allows. The maximum duration available for pre-alarm recording can be determined from the recorded image size and frame rate.

Miscellaneous

177

Settings

• Do not change settings from both the NSR unit and RealShot Manager

Controller at the same time.

• When registering multiple cameras at once, an error message appears if any of the settings are configured improperly. Only the cameras configured correctly will be registered. Cameras that have not been configured correctly will reappear on the list, so you will need to register them again.

• If you change the mount angle of a camera after configuring a motion detection area with the NSR, the motion detection area does not change accordingly. You must reconfigure the motion detection area.

• You cannot use quotation marks (“) when naming a preset, but you can name a preset using only spaces. Be aware, however, that presets named using only spaces appear as if they have not been configured when displayed.

• When you change the mount angle (from 90 degrees to 270 degrees for example) in the “Main” settings of the “Camera” screen, the aspect ratios of preview images that appear when searching for and exporting recorded images do not display correctly. The aspect ratios display correctly, however, when the recorded images are played back or when the exported movies or still images are stored on media.

• When you add a camera and assign it to a monitor window displaying images with a “No Camera” status under the default monitor layout, the display does not automatically switch over to the images from the assigned camera. To display the images from the assigned camera in the monitor window, switch the monitor layout.

• Even when “Send Still Image” is selected as an action setting under “Report

By Mail,” still images will not be attached in the following cases.

- Video codec for the camera sending the still image is not set to JPEG

- Masking is configured on the camera sending the still image

- Still image capture failed due to high processing load

• When you click [Register] during multiple camera registration, a message indicating that registration is in progress appears along with a [Cancel] button.

The [Cancel] button is not for cancelling camera registration mid-progress. If an error occurs while registration is in progress, the [Cancel] button is used to close the message window. It is not used under normal circumstances.

• When editing and saving user settings in the Configuration window, reenter the password even if you do not wish to change it. When the password is saved correctly, the password text box appears empty. Be aware that this does not signify a “no password” status.

• During multiple camera registration, an error message may appear while configuring camera settings. This may mean that you have not set a user name or password, so be sure to confirm.

• When a PAL camera is connected to the SNT-V704, the maximum resolution on the “Main” screen is shown as “720 × 480,” but this corresponds to “720 ×

576” on the SNT-V704.

• With a PAL camera, the position of a motion detection area may shift. Make sure to configure the motion detection area before using motion detection.

Option Window

• When the system alert detects a VIDEO LOSS, the event is recorded in the

System Log. You cannot confirm the camera for which the VIDEO LOSS occurred by name with the System Log. To confirm the camera name, open the corresponding log record in the Alarm Log.

Exporting

• The NSR does not include a function to format CD/DVD media to be used for exporting or a function to make them blank. Use media that is already blank.

Miscellaneous

178

• When using external media, do not insert a CF (CompactFlash) card and USB memory device at the same time.

• When exporting recorded image or log files, an export in progress is cancelled if you click [Abort] in the Status dialog box. A warning message to confirm cancellation does not appear. The export will be cancelled once copying of the file that was to be exported completes.

• The NSR supports the following external media formats.

- CF (CompactFlash) (only NSR-100/50)

- USB memory

- CD-R/RW

- DVD-R (only NSR-100/50)

- DVD+R (only NSR-100/50)

Caution

• Depending on the external media, it may not be supported.

• Errors may occur when writing onto CD/DVD media.

If an error occurs, do not eject the CD/DVD, and try writing onto it again.

• Do not write on media that has been previously written on.

If an error occurs while writing for the second time, previously written data may become unreadable.

• DL (Dual Layer) DVDs are not supported.

• When multiple files are written onto a CD/DVD with the NSR, only a portion of the files may be readable, depending on the CD/DVD drive or OS

(Operating System). (Confirm multi session and multi border support.)

System Menu

• Second monitors continue to display images while you use the Setup Menu and during shutdown and reboot procedures.

• When a route setting for a port that does not have a network cable connected to it is configured during network configuration in the Setup Menu, an error message indicating that the network is unreachable appears. Connect the network cable before configuring the settings.

• When creating host and server names for the NSR with the Setup Wizard or

Setup Menu, use only alphanumeric characters, underscores (_), and hyphens

(-).

Remote Control Operations

• You can operate the export function from a remote control unit, but the operation may be difficult without the aid of a mouse.

• If you use the mouse or F1 key on the remote control unit to switch the Option window to a mode other than Camera Control in the middle of performing pan and tilt operations with the remote control unit, the camera may continue to pan and tilt on its own. Reset the Option window to Camera Control and operate the joystick to regain control of the camera.

• When you press the SHIFT button on the remote control unit, the SHIFT

LOCK LED lights blue, and the Shift Lock function is enabled. Be aware that the functions printed below each button are active in this state. (This does not include the numeric keys and the CANCEL, ENTER, and CAMERA

SELECT buttons.)

• You cannot move columns in lists such as those displayed in the Option window with the remote control unit. Use a mouse to select and sort columns.

• When the NSR is experiencing a high processing load, some remote control operations may not register immediately. These operations may later execute all at once.

• When a monitor window with no camera assigned to it (“No Camera” status displayed) is selected in a multiple window layout, pressing the [1×1] button

Miscellaneous

179

on the remote control unit will not change the layout. To change the layout, select a monitor window with a camera assigned to it, and then press the [1×1] button.

Remote Clients

• To connect to the NSR unit from RealShot Manager Controller, perform the following steps after starting up RealShot Manager Controller.

1 Click [Remote Server].

2 Click [+] (Add).

3 Select “device type (Remote PC Interrogator),” enter the name, IP address, and port number, and perform registration.

4 After registration is finished, click the [Remote PC] tab, and enter the

RealShot Manager connection user name and password for the NSR unit.

• In general, perform camera configurations from the NSR unit. When performing, underscores (_), and hyphens (-) configurations from RealShot

Manager Controller, use only alphanumeric characters for settings such as the name. Other characters can be registered, but they will not display properly.

• The addition, changing, or deletion of an audio device cannot be performed from RealShot Manager Controller. Cameras and audio devices are registered simultaneously under the same name on the NSR unit when necessary.

• When you register a camera supporting audio, an audio device is automatically registered as well. As “Default” is automatically assigned as the storage location for the audio device’s recordings during registration, selecting “Default” as the storage location from RealShot Manager Controller will cause the same device name to appear twice.

• When recording with the audio function enabled, two recordings (image and audio) are created. You can differentiate between image and audio recordings in the Search screen by filtering them.

• The addition, changing, and deletion of a storage location for recordings cannot be performed from RealShot Manager Controller.

• The addition and deletion of cameras assigned to the motion detection pin cannot be performed from RealShot Manager Controller.

• You cannot register a remote PC with the NSR from RealShot Manager

Controller.

• You cannot register the following devices from RealShot Manager Controller.

- SNT-V504

- SNC-VL10

- BarioNet

- Annuncicom

- Instreamer

• There are some settings that can be configured from RealShot Manager

Controller that cannot be configured (or displayed) on the NSR.

Examples:

- A clean up schedule set on RealShot Manager Controller will not appear on the NSR.

- Audio output pins added on RealShot Manager Controller will not appear on the NSR.

• You can select MPEG4-JPEG or JPEG-MEPG4 for the video codec of multicodec cameras such as the CS50 or RX550, but multiple error messages will appear when you click [Apply]. Because the NSR does not use the alarm buffer function, the multi-codec setting is not available on the NSR. The error messages will not appear if you select a single codec setting (JPEG or

MPEG4).

• If you click an assigned camera under Object Detection Pin directly while setting Object Detection for cameras from RealShot Manager Controller, images from a different camera may be displayed, and RealShot Manager

Controller may abort in the middle of operations. If this occurs, click and

Miscellaneous

180

select a camera above Object Detection Pin first, then select and configure the camera you wish to set Object Detection for. Be sure to confirm that the camera name for the images displayed is that of the camera you wish to configure.

• Auto pan & tilt speed is turned off by default. When using RealShot Manager

Controller, we recommend selecting the [Auto Pan & Tilt Speed] check box on the [Camera] tab in the “Setup Manager” window or “Device Properties” dialog box.

• When using the SNT-V704, do not turn stream mode off. When using

RealShot Manager Controller, make sure the [Stream Mode] check box is selected on the [Picture] tab in the “Setup Manager” window or “Device

Properties” dialog box.

Miscellaneous

• You can specify the amount of time between a power interruption and the start of the shutdown process in the UPS settings (default setting: 5 minutes).

Shutdown will also be performed under the following conditions.

- When the battery level is below 15%

- When less than 5 minutes are left for the remaining battery time

• If one of the hard disks develops a malfunction, restoration is possible by switching hard disks when the RAID-1, 1+0, and 5 settings are configured, but image recording during the restoration process is not guaranteed.

• Shutdown and rebooting for the NSR may take longer when recording in high levels. Temporarily remove the network cables connecting the cameras or stop recording before shutting down or rebooting.

• Be sure to reboot after changing RAID settings in the DOM menu. If you change the RAID settings again without rebooting, an error message will appear.

Troubleshooting

Before contacting your retailer or a Sony Support Center, please check the following items. If the problem persists, contact them.

The NSR does not work.

• Verify that the power switch is turned on.

• Verify that the power cable is connected correctly.

• Make sure the wall outlet has power. Test it by plugging another device.

• Verify that the hard disk drives are not being accessed (the HDD LEDs on the front of the recorder do not blink), and then turn it off forcibly by pressing and holding the power switch at the rear of the unit for approximately 10 seconds.

Restart the NSR.

• During the startup procedure, the NSR checks the file system. The length of this check varies depending on the amount of data on the NSR (in some extreme case, it can take as long as two hours). During the file system check, the HDD LEDs on the front of the recorder blink.

• If the NSR does not start correctly, the following screen may appear.

Miscellaneous

181

Example: For the NSR-100/50

When it does, proceed as follows.

1 Click [Shutdown] and turn off the NSR.

2 Referring to “Cannot access the hard drive.”, verify whether the NSR hard disks are correctly connected.

3 Restart the NSR and verify whether it starts.

4 If the same screen as above appears again, insert the supplied NSR Series

Recovery CD into the CD and DVD drive, and then turn off the NSR. In this state, restart the NSR, and select “2. Check file System” when the following screen appears.

Checking the file system may take several hours.

5 When the check is finished, select “7. Shutdown the system”, and turn off the recorder.

In addition, do not use any menu option other than “2. Check file system” or “7. Shutdown the system”, as the others are for maintenance purposes.

6 Restart the NSR and immediately eject the NSR Series Recovery CD. Then verify whether the NSR starts correctly.

The monitor remains blank.

• Verify whether the NSR is on.

• Verify whether the power cord is correctly connected.

• Verify whether the monitor cable is correctly connected. Confirm that the monitor is connected to VGA connector 1.

• If you configure the wrong monitor resolution, the “Out of range” message may appear when the monitor resolution is too low compared to the monitor output. Press CTRL+ALT+MINUS SIGN as many times as necessary to lower the resolution of the output video. When the output image resolution reaches the resolution of the monitor, the image appears. Subsequently,

Miscellaneous

182

reconfigure your monitor resolution. For details, see “Modifying the System

Configuration” (page 25).

The new external hardware is not working properly.

• Make sure the cables for the new external device are firmly connected and the pins are not bent.

An external device connected to a USB connector does not work.

• Reduce the number of external devices connected to USB ports.

• Refer to the documentation that came with the device.

System cannot read the DVD/CD information.

• Make sure that you are using the correct type of disc.

• Make sure the DVD/CD is properly inserted in the drive.

• Check if the DVD/CD is clean and not scratched.

The DVD/CD tray cannot be ejected.

• Make sure that the NSR is turned on.

• Slowly insert the tip of a pen or paperclip into the eject hole on the DVD/CD drive. Pull the tray out from the drive then remove the disc.

The NETWORK LED does not light up.

• Check the cabling and network equipment for the proper connection.

Cannot access the hard disk drive.

• Make sure the hard disk drive is properly inserted.

• Check the HDD LEDs on the front panel of the system. Identify the defective hard disk drive by reading the drive LEDs. A defective HDD LED does not light up.

• Due to rapid flashing during frequent access to the hard disk drive, the HDD

LED may appear unlit in bright environments.

Cannot access the CompactFlash card. (Only the NSR-100/

50)

• Make sure the CompactFlash card is properly inserted.

• Make sure the CompactFlash card is formatted as VFAT file system.

• Make sure the CompactFlash card is not removed within 10 seconds after accessing the card. If you remove the card while files are being accessed or transferred, the NSR may become unstable. You must restart the system in order to access the CompactFlash card.

Cannot access NSR from a remote client.

• Make sure the NSR is operating properly (there should be no abnormalities with the hard disk drive, network, software or other items).

• Make sure the correct user name, password, and connection port are set in

RealShot Manager.

• Refer to the troubleshooting section of the user’s guide for the RealShot

Manager.

The NSR heats up quickly

• Make sure that nothing is blocking the ventilation openings on the front, sides, and rear of the unit and dust has not accumulated in them.
