Dahua Training Course Notes
Module 1 - Introduction to HD-CVI
What is HD-CVI?
What is covered
HD-CVI is an analogue HD technology by Dahua that delivers HD images using standard analogue installation methods. HD-CVI
cameras output an analogue video signal at a higher frequency than that of standard definition analogue cameras. Using this
technology HD images can be transmitted using coaxial or twisted pair cable. Additional signals such as Audio, Alarms and PTZ
Telemtry are also transmitted down the same cable.

Module 1 - Introduction to IP
Internet Protocol or simply “IP” is the communication method used by networked devices to communicate and transfer data
between one another.
All networked devices such as Computers, Phones, CCTV systems and other devices use the Internet Protocol to communicate.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol or “TCP/IP” is the protocol suite which includes the internet protocol.
TCP/IP is the basic protocol used by the vast majority of devices communicating across local networks and the internet.
The most common connection method used today is that of Ethernet, Ethernet cables are used to connect the devices together
via Switches & Routers.
IP CCTV systems differ from analogue, HDCVI and other coax based systems in that every aspect of the system is network based.
Every Camera and NVR communicate with each other the same way as any other IP based piece of equipment, such as a PC,
Laptop or Mobile phone.
The Video, Audio and Telemetry signals are converted into digital signals, consisting of data packets.
These packets are then Streamed to the NVR via the network connection.
100m for POE and Non POE Devices
Can easily be extended using POE and Non POE repeaters
Can also be extended using Switches and Fibre
Radio transmission up to 15Km
Video, Audio, I/O Commands and Power can be
transmitted through one cable.
Plug and Play installation

HD and UHD Image Quality
Manage cameras via PC or Laptop
Power over Ethernet (PoE) transmits data and provides power down the same cable to a network
PoE device.
By utilising PoE the number of cables required to install an IP CCTV system are minimalised.
Each camera can be added to the system using just one cable.
POE has a maximum transmission distance of 100m

The process of converting video & audio into a digital signal is referred to as Encoding, often when adjusting video settings such as
resolution or frame rate, the settings will be found in the Encode menu.
When the digital signal is received by an NVR, PC or other device, the process of converting the signal and displaying it to the
operator is called Decoding.

Module 2 - Specifying and Installation
ONVIF is an open protocol incorporated throughout the IP CCTV industry, it is used to ensure interoperability between devices
regardless of the manufacturer.
An NVR that supports the ONVIF protocol will likely work with any IP camera that also utilises the protocol.
Although ONVIF ensures compatibility between devices, it does not guarantee nor necessarily support all functions available on
an IP camera or NVR.
At the very least the ability for the NVR to decode the video stream of the camera is usually supported. Other functions such as PTZ
Control, Motion Detection or Image settings are usually dependent on the specific IP camera manufacturer or model.

Wireless transmission can be used when cabling is not possible, Ligowave units can transmit up to 15Km (point to point) or 10Km (point
to multipoint). When using wireless transmission it is also important to check for obstructions that may interfere with the transmission,
line of sight is required when using Ligowave units.

Dahua Non POE units are available in 32, 64, 128 and 256 channel variants. Each NVR has a minimum of 2x 1Gbps network ports, one
of the NVR Ethernet ports is used for the camera network, with the other Ethernet port used for the LAN network. When specifying a
large IP system, it is important to take into account the amount of bandwidth being transmitted between the network switches and
the NVR. Most POE switches offer multiple 1Gbps network ports along with multiple 100Mbps POE ports. In this scenerio, the 1Gbps
network ports are used to connect the NVR to the switch and for connecting switch to switch. The 100Mbps are then used for the
individual camera connections.

Module 2 - Specifying and Installation
Module 2 - Specifying and Installation
Bandwidth requirements and limitations should always be considered when specifying an IP CCTV system. POE NVR Installations do
not usually reach the limit of the NVR, whereas this is often possible on non PoE units.
To put the bandwidth requirements for remote viewing into practice, you must first look at the encode settings of the cameras.
The bitrate of an individual camera may already be higher than that of the internet connection
The total bitrate of the system may be vastly higher than that of the internet connection
Sub Stream is often the recommended stream for remote viewing
NVR Bandwidth 56Mbps
Total Camera Bandwidth 32Mbps
There are three main items that make up an IP CCTV video stream; Resolution, Frame Rate and Bit Rate
Resolution The pixel size of the image such as 1.3MP
Frame Rate The number of images per second, real time video is 25
Bit Rate
The overall size of the image in Kbps, the larger the bit rate the more bandwidth the video stream will use
Individual pixels make up any digital image such as photos or video. A megapixel (MP) is a million pixels, the resolution of digital
cameras including IP CCTV cameras are measured in megapixels.
To calculate how many megapixels a specific resolution is, multiply the resolution width and height together…..
Large IP systems such as 32, 64, 128 & 256 channel are connected via switches and can easily reach the maximum bandwidth
supported by the NVR. Reducing the bitrate on each camera is often required to provide the maximum number of channels supported
on the NVR.

1280x960 = 1228800 pixels (1.3MP)
1920x1080 = 2073600 pixels (2.0MP)
Sometimes the overall pixel size is rounded up to the nearest million or decimal place, such as 720P (1MP) & 1.3MP.
Frame Rate
The frame rate of the video stream sets how many frames (still images) are captured per second, the higher the frame rate the
smoother the video stream.
Common frame rate settings that are used are 25 (Real Time), 12 (Half Real Time) and 6 (Quarter Real Time).
In many situations, real time video is not required and so the frame rate can be configured to a lower settings such as Half or
Quarter real time.
An important aspect to consider when setting the frame rate, is the requirement of whether high detail items may be required such
as License plates or Facial recognition.
As an example, when capturing license plates it is often best to have the frame rate at a minimum of half real time. This is to
ensure that at the moment of the target vehicle being in the optimum position to capture the license plate information, a frame is
captured. If the camera is set for a low frame rate then a frame may not be taken at this optimum position.

When planning to make an IP system available for remote access across the internet, knowing the bandwidth capabilities of the on
site internet connection is also very important
Bit rate is the term used to describe the size of the video stream in Kbps (Kilo bits per second) or Mbps (Mega bits per second). When
choosing the bit rate setting it is important to take into consideration both the Resolution and Frame rate.
A high resolution and high frame rate will require a high bit rate to produce good quality video. If the bit rate is set too low, then
the video will become pixilated and suffer from artefacts, especially during scene changes such as PTZ and object movement.
A lower resolution and frame rate will require a lower frame rate, setting the bit rate higher than it needs to be will not give much
advantage over video quality.
Upload Speed – Send speed of the internet connection
Download Speed – Receive speed of the internet connection

Module 2 - Specifying and Installation
Module 3 - HD-CVI Camera Configuration
Bit Rate Type
There are two types of bit rate to consider when configuring the encode settings of an IP camera, CBR and VBR.
Constant Bit Rate (CBR) – CBR will target to encode the video signal at the specified bit rate continuously. If the camera bit rate is
set to 4096Kbps, then this will be the bit rate the camera continuously streams at. CBR is best used in high activity environments.
Variable Bit Rate (VBR) – VBR is an automatic bit rate setting, when configured the specified bit rate will be used as a marker,
depending on the amount of movement and detail in the scene, the bit rate will automatically lower or increase. VBR is
advantageous in quieter environments where there is little or no movement.
Compression is the application of reducing the data size of the video stream to that of the specified bit rate. The more a video
stream is compressed, the lesser the quality of the video stream.
Video codecs such as H.264 and MPEG4 use different algorithms to encode and decode video. H.264 is considered the more
efficient, usually requiring 30% less bandwidth than that of MPEG4.
When choosing which codec to select, it is important to take into consideration how the system will be used. As MPEG4 tends to
use more bandwidth and disk space than that of H.264, H.264 is the most commonly used. Allowing for more storage capacity
and faster viewing for remote access.
Features available across the Dahua range of NVRs and DVRs include:
Live Viewing (Main and Sub streams)
PTZ Control
Audio (Recorded audio, Talkback audio)
Remote management
Push notifications (PC software, Paid mobile app)
Many more features are available, if a specific feature is required by the customer then the Cop Security technical department can
advise on more specific installation requirements.
There are multiple ways to view Dahua products across multiple devices including:
Windows PC – Smart PSS CMS software, Web Browser (IE, Firefox)
MAC – Smart PSS CMS Software, Web Browser (Safari)
Mobile Phone – (iPhone, Android, Windows, Blackberry)
Tablet – (iPad, Android)
One of the most important factors to consider when specifying an IP CCTV system which is often overlooked, is the NVR hard drive (HDD) capacity.
Specifying the correct HDD size for the customers needs, prevents having to sacrifice image quality to achieve the required amount of days
recorded on the system.
IP Camera: 1080P, 25fps, High Quality
Days Recording: 11
16x IP Cameras: 1080P, 12fps, Good Quality
Days Recording: 29.5
Internet speed is probably the most important factor often overlooked when specifying a remotely accessed system for a customer.
Although remote access can be achieved on some of the slowest broadband connections, access speed will most likely suffer.
On site upload speed must be considered a major factor that will ultimately determine the performance of the system when accessed
Off site broadband speed is also important, however this only affects the site viewing the system, upload speed will determine the
connection speed for all remote sites including PC and mobile access.
An average ADSL broadband connection with a 8Mbps download speed will usually have an upload speed anywhere between
0.5Mbps and 1Mbps. The result of this being that viewing the system remotely would be limited to 0.5~1Mbps regardless of the
download speed on site.

The self adaptive feature is included in many HD-CVI camera models. Turn the feature on for use with standard analogue receivers
such as analogue DVRs. When connected to a DVR the camera will automatically detect whether to output HD or SD video. When
in SD mode, additional CVI signals such as Audio, Alarms and Telemetry will be disabled.
PTZ Control
PTZ cameras require no configuration when controlled using the HD-CVI protocol. PTZ control features can be accessed via the DVR
without the requirement for protocol or ID configuration.
Plug and play describes the installation method of connecting Dahua cameras directly to the POE port of a Dahua NVR.
When connected this way, the NVR establishes a connection with the camera and allocates the camera with an IP address. This
is because the POE switch of a Dahua NVR is also a DHCP server. Once an address has been allocated to the camera the NVR
assigns the camera with a channel number (first come first served basis) and displays the video stream on the monitor display.
When specifying an IP system for remote access there are multiple points to take into account.
What remote access functions does the customer require?
How will the system be viewed? (PC, MAC, Mobile)
What is the upload speed of the site?
Is the customers internet package a fixed IP or dynamic?
Plug and Play is only available with Dahua POE NVRs and Dahua IP cameras,
cross manufacturer installations do not support Plug and Play.
Plug and Play is also limited to one camera per POE port on the NVR.
If transmitting multiple cameras through a single POE port of an NVR via a switch,
manual configuration is required.

The default IP address range for the POE switch within all Dahua
POE NVRs is and usually starts at This can be
altered in the network settings of the recorder.
Module 4 - IP Camera Installation & Configuration
Typical Plug and Play Installation
The Dahua config tool scans all networks the computer is currently
connected to including Wired and Wireless. On first time installations
all Dahua cameras should appear on the same IP address of, the Config tool will also display any other Dahua
devices on the same network such as NVRs. Cameras that have
conflicting IP addresses such as during first time installation, are
highlighted in red.
Once the Config Tool has discovered the cameras, double left click a camera to
edit it’s IP address.
Installations that require manual configuration of Dahua IP cameras include Non-POE NVRs & POE NVRs where more than one
camera is connected to a single POE port via a switch. It is also recommended to perform manual configuration, when a single
camera is connected to a POE NVR via a switch or wireless link.
This is because the extra equipment placed between the NVR and Camera can delay or even stop the automatic detection

To access a cameras built in web browser, type the IP address into Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari (MAC), alternatively click the e
icon in the Config Tool on the right side of the camera list.
When manually configuring IP cameras, the first step is to find the camera on the network. By default all networkable Dahua devices
have a default IP address of
Each camera needs to be configured so that they all have a unique address that is in range of the NVR they are connecting to.
To do this, the Dahua Config Tool is used. You can download the Config Tool from the Cop Security website, it is also included on the
USB memory stick provided with your course material.
Login to the camera using the default username & password (admin, admin)
For security reasons it is recommended that the default admin password is changed, a prompt will appear to request that this is
Press Cancel to skip but this is not the recommended action.
Install the Config Tool on to the computer by running the setup exe file.
After the Config Tool has been installed on the computer, a shortcut labelled “Config Tool” will have been placed on the desktop.
Before running the Config Tool you must first make sure that any devices you wish to configure will be discoverable. To do this the
computer is required to be connected to the camera network.
On POE NVRs this is done by connecting the computer to one of the POE ports. On non POE NVRs connect the computer to one of
the ports on a network switch.

When multiple cameras are to be connected to a single POE port on a POE NVR, plug and play must be disabled in the camera
and the cameras added to the NVR manually.
Ligowave wireless links enable transmission of network data from one link to another with transmission ranges of up to 15Km (point to
point) or 10Km (point to multipoint). Each link is configured with its own individual IP address. The links are then set to be an Access
Point or a Station. The Access point hosts the WiFi network and items such as the WiFi name and Security are configured. The Station
connects to this network by inputting the required WiFi log on details.
Once logged into the IP cameras web browser, go to Setup > Network > TCP/IP and untick the option for ARP/PING. This will disable
the plug and play feature in the camera.
Ligowave wireless links have a default network setting of DHCP with a fall back IP of

Dahua PTZ cameras are installed and configured the same way as any other Dahua IP camera, except for a few small differences.
The majority of Dahua PTZ cameras require separate 24v AC power input (PSU Supplied). Additional configuration should not be
required to achieve control of PTZ functions.
Presets, Tours and Alarms can be configured in the camera web browser or OSD menu. Smart features such as auto tracking are
configured in the camera web browser.
Onvif protocol is a third party protocol designed to ensure interoperability between devices. When adding Onvif cameras to an
NVR the IP address of each camera must first be configured using the manufacturers discovery tool.
Once the cameras are configured in range of the NVR, they must be added to the NVR camera list using manual configuration.
24v AC Supply
Not all features that are you accessible on the NVR for Dahua cameras will be available for cameras added using the Onvif
protocol. Often settings such as Motion Detection, Privacy Masking or even Date/Time are required to be configured in the
camera web browser.
Using IR Lab cameras as an example, the IPC Tool is used to discover and configure the IR Lab cameras.
When adding IR Lab cameras to a Dahua NVR, ports 85 and 554 are used.

The bottom section lists cameras currently assigned to channels on NVR.
Module 5 - NVR Installation & Configuration
Encoders enable the integration of existing analogue cameras on to an IP system by encoding the analogue video signal into a
digital network stream.
Analogue cameras are connected to the encoder via BNC and the encoder is then configured on the LAN network along with the
NVR. The IP address of the encoder is added to the remote device menu of the NVR, Each camera added from the encoder takes
up a channel slot on the NVR. When using the Manual Add option, the Remote Channel Number relates to the camera channel on
the encoder. Cameras from other Dahua NVRs or HDCVI recorders can also be added using the same method.

Dahua IP cameras connected directly to the POE port of a Dahua POE NVR should not
require any configuration, once connected the cameras should automatically appear in the
remote device list.
Each Dahua IP camera should receive an IP address from the NVR automatically and video
should appear on the live display.
By default, each camera should automatically record (continuous) and the Date/Time of
each camera should automatically sync to the NVR clock.
Decoders are used to provide spot monitors using new or existing network infrastructure. The decoder is configured on the LAN or
Camera network of the NVR. The IP Address of the IP cameras or NVR are added to the Decoder remote device menu. Multiple split
screens and sequences can be programmed, Dahua NVRs can also be used as encoders if required.
