Technical Manual
Developed on the basis of TI DaVinci platform, DS-6401HDI is a kind of
multi-purpose video/audio decoder which is capable of allowing the coded
images from DVR/DVS or other encoding devices to be decoded and displayed
on the TV wall after transmission via IP network.
It supports multiple bit rate transmission methods, and is capable of
decoding /outputting the high-definition 1080P video stream and outputting
decoded images via BNC or VGA, HDMI and DVI ports simultaneously. In
addition, the Decoder also has the capabilities such as voice talk, alarm
input/output, PTZ control, etc., providing powerful support for the large-scale
TV wall decoding service.

Technical Manual
Functions & Performances
 Decoding images and audio
Private H.264, standard H.264 and MPEG4 video compression methods;
Support PS, RTP and private customized encapsulation formats;
PAL and NTSC image formats;
Decoding at up to 1080P resolution;
G.722, G.711A and G.711U video compression methods.
 Decoding Resources
DS-6401HDI is capable of decoding 1-ch video stream at 1080P resolution,
2-ch video at 720P resolution and 4-ch video at 4CIF resolution.
 Decoding Mode
Multiple transmission methods: support TCP, UDP, MCAST and RTP
transmission protocols.
Dynamic decoding: log on the remote encoder or remote stream media
server to select a channel of video source to acquire video stream, and then
decode and output the video for local display.
Cycle decoding: set multiple remote monitoring channels on a decoding
channel, and the decoder is capable of performing cycle decoding according
to the configured sequence and time. The stream sources can be obtained via
remote access to the encoder or stream media server and decoded for local
output. A maximum of 64 channels are allowed for cycle decoding.
Obtain stream from stream media server: receive real-time data by
remote access to stream media server, and then decode stream for local
output. The private RTSP is adopted as the control protocol, and the TCP/UDP
is used for receiving the data stream.
Remote playback of record files: remotely access to the encoder with
storage capability, and directly obtain the record files from the encoder, and
finally decode for local output.
Passive decoding: the decoder passively receives stream sources, and then
proceeds decoding and transmission. Passive decoding supports TCP and UDP
transmission modes.
Third-party IP Camera Access
Multiple brands of IP cameras from different manufactures are supported:
Sony, Panasonic, Sanyo, Axis, Bosch, etc.

Technical Manual
One 10/100/1000Mbps self-adaptive UTP Ethernet interface
Support TCP/IP, UDP and RTP network protocols
Get allocated IP address, sub mask and gateway via DHCP server
Accomplish auto time adjustment for decoder over NTP protocol
Support DDNS capability
Capable of searching decoder in real time through SADP software, as
well as
modifying the IP address, sub mask, gateway of decoder and some
other parameters
Capable of accessing decoder by TELNET command to view device
information, modify network parameters, etc.
Relay Alarm Input
The decoder provides alarm input/output ports in relay signal input
mode which can be set to NO or NC. Eight different arming periods can
be set, in which the alarm occurs, the device is capable of triggering
corresponding alarm handling method, relay output and buzzer alarm,
as well as upload to center, etc.
Relay Alarm Output
The relay alarm output can be connected to alarm devices for alarm
response actions, e.g., combined aural and visual alarm unit, etc., which
is capable of proceeding alarm handling within the arming period.
Exception Handling
Exception Alarm Handling
Exception alarms include network disconnect alarm, IP address conflict
alarm, illegal access alarm, etc.; multiple alarm handling methods are
supported: relay alarm output, buzzer alarm, upload to center, etc.
Exception Reboot
Software watchdog capability: for inspecting important threads and
system resources of device; in case of exceptions cannot be recovered,
the device will be automatically rebooted.
Firmware watchdog: for inspecting the firmware of device; in case of
exceptions in system task scheduling, the device will be automatically

Technical Manual
User Management
A maximum of 32 users can be created by the system, including 1
administrator and 31 users. The user name of the administrator is
admin, which cannot be modified, and the password is allowable to be
modified by the administrator only; no deletion of the administrator is
allowed, and the administrator is authorized to set the operation
permissions for normal users.
SDK Interface
Transparent Channel
The decoder adopts the RS-232/RS-485 serial interface to realize
transparent transmission. The data sent remotely to the decoder via
network can be transmitted by RS-232/RS-485 interface of decoder
without any handling, and the transparent channel of the decoder
supports multi-cast transparent transmission as well, and multiple
transparent channels can be established simultaneously.
PTZ Control
Through SDK transparent channel, the PTZ of DVR or DVS can be
remotely controlled.
Voice Talk
The decoder is capable of realizing voice talk with the remote client.
When the client has submitted application, the voice talk between the
client and decoder is created.
