Preface
The DVTel 9600 and 9700 Series of Internet Protocol (IP) Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) Cameras
(or Domes) feature a variety of PAL and NTSC models for both indoor and outdoor use.
The domes contain a built-in MPEG-4 encoder that converts analog video into one or two
MPEG-4 streams. The latter option is used to support viewing and recording at different
qualities (up to 4CIF, 30 ips NTSC or 25 ips PAL). The domes are powered using 24 VAC
current, delivered either through a Power over Ethernet (PoE) wiring accessory or directly.
PoE is not available for outdoor domes. Each dome also contains DIP switches for setting
the PTZ number, baud rate and protocol.
The DVTel Domes are designed to integrate seamlessly with Latitude NVMS. Most of the
devices’ configuration is typically performed through the Latitude AdminCenter.
Dome setup involves three principal tasks: encoder configuration, physical installation and
camera configuration.
The diagram below shows the dome’s dimensions, in millimeters.

Encoder Configuration
The dome’s built-in encoder should be configured in a lab before the camera is installed in
the field. Each dome comes with a default IP address, which is typically listed on a sticker
affixed to its housing (some early models of the dome do not have this sticker. In that case,
the default IP address is 192.168.0.1).
1. Install the DVTel ActiveX extensions on your computer. The application can be found
in the firmware folder of the installation CD under the name DVTELACX.exe.
2. Launch Internet Explorer and open Internet Options from the Tools menu. Switch to
the Security tab and click Local intranet and then the Custom Level button. Change
all the ActiveX setting to either Prompt or Enable.
3. Go to http://www.java.com and download and install the latest version of the
Java Virtual Machine.
4. Power up the camera with 24 VAC using either the Power over Ethernet (PoE) wiring
accessory or, in the case of a dome without PoE, its power leads. The PoE wiring
accessory should be connected to a 24 VAC power source and to either your computer
or a network switch. If connecting directly to a computer, use the provided crossed
network cable to connect the wiring accessory’s female RJ45 connector to the camera’s
female RJ45 connector. Otherwise, use a straight-through cable.
5. Configure your computer’s network settings so that it can connect to devices with IP
addresses of the form 192.168.0.X. See your network administrator for information on
how to do this.
6. Enter the encoder’s IP address in Internet Explorer Address field and press Enter.
Figure 2 - The Encoder Configuration Home Page
7. Click the Settings link at the top of the page. In the Settings page, click Configurator.
8. In the side bar, click Service settings and Network settings. Enter the settings you
would like to assign your unit. Some of the fields may often be left blank, but you must
always assign the encoder an IP address and a subnet mask such that it is visible to the
4
Latitude system. Once you have modified the unit’s settings, click the Set button, and then the link
labeled “Reboot after ‘set’ necessary!”
Figure 3 - Encoder Network Settings
9. Once the new settings have been sent to the dome, exit the configuration page.
Assigning the Dome an RCP+ Extension
The encoder’s default RCP+ extension (or port) is 1800. It is recommended that this value
be change prior to using the camera with Latitude.
1. Go to Start>Programs>DVTel Latitude 3.0>Tools>Video Unit Search.
Figure 4 - Video Unit Search
2. Choose RCP+ from the Unit type drop-down menu and click the Run button on the
top right corner of the screen.
3. Double click the encoder you have just configured. Assign it a port and click OK. You
may use the same port for other domes as well.
4. Exit Video Unit Search.
5
Assigning an RCP+ Extension to a Latitude Archiver
To use the dome with Latitude, you will need to associate its RCP+ port with one (or more,
in the case of fail-over or redundant archiving) of your Latitude Archivers.
1. On the server on which the Latitude Archiver resides, go to Start>Programs>DVTel
Latitude 3.0>Resource Administration Tool.
2. Right click Archiver in the Resources tree and choose Create>RCP+ Extension.
Click Yes when asked whether you would like to restart the Archiver service.
3. Change the Discovery port to the same port you assigned your dome and click Apply.
4. Exit the Resource Administration Tool.

Camera Configuration
The DVTel IP Dome is typically configured using Latitude AdminCenter. Some of its most
common functions, such as presets and patterns, can be set-up using the system’s Graphical
User Interface (GUI). To set up most functions, however, the camera’s textual menu must
be utilized. Before this menu can be accessed from Latitude, however, the PTZ must be set
up in AdminCenter.
Dome Setup in Latitude
Setting up a dome in Latitude involves the configuration of the camera, the encoder’s serial
port, and of the PTZ motor.
Configuring the Camera
1. In the System View Pane (Logical view), browse for the dome. If it has yet to be
configured, its name should be based on the IP address assigned to it, followed by the
suffix “– Enc”.
Figure 15 - The Camera Configuration Pane
2. In the Name field, erase the IP address and give the dome a meaningful name (e.g. N.
Exit PTZ). Enter a further description if you wish. When asked whether you would like
to rename all linked applications, click No.
3. In the Keep archives for field, enter the number of days that you would like video from
the camera kept (uncheck the field if archiving is not required). Checkmark the Record
audio box if applicable. Change the rest of the non-schedule parameters if you wish
(many users finds it more convenient to do this only after additional entities have been
configured). Click Apply changes.
11
4. Click the second tab (Recording quality). Choose whether default recording quality
should be based on the active recording schedule or live display settings.
5. If you would like the recording quality to change based on motion, click the Recording
quality on motion detection box and choose one of the options from the Quality
pull-down menu. To specify quality parameters individually, choose Custom and enter
the appropriate values. Note that many users prefer to hold off on this step until after
motion detection has been configured.
6. Repeat step 4 for quality change on manual recording, if required. Click the third tab
(Display quality) and choose Yes when prompted whether to apply changes.
7. Based on your requirements and network capabilities, configure viewing stream quality:
ƒ Choose the Video data format and Quality from their drop-down menus.
ƒ If Custom is chosen for quality, enter the various quality parameters manually.
ƒ Set bit rate control and Input filter mode. In most cases, DVTel recommends
that you checkmark the former and choose Medium for the latter.
ƒ Click Apply changes.
ƒ Note that different qualities can be set for different dates/times. If you wish to
do so, return to the step after you create additional coverages.
8. Click the second to last tab from the left (Attributes). Make sure Analog format is set
to the correct option for your dome (PAL or NTSC). Click the Live video button and
use the displayed stream to change Brightness, Contrast, Hue or Saturation. Click
Apply changes.
Configuring the Serial Port
1. In the Physical view of the System View Pane, browse for the dome encoder’s serial
port (both the serial port and the camera appear under the unit in the tree hierarchy).
Figure 16 - The Serial Port Configuration Pane
12
2. Change Data bits to 8, Parity to None, Stop bits to 1, Baud rate to 4800, and Line
Driver to RS422/485. Click Apply changes.
Configuring the PTZ Motor
1. Right click anywhere in the System View Pane and choose Create > PTZ…
Figure 3-10 – The Create PTZ Dialogue Box
2. Choose DVTel IP from the Protocol drop-down menu and browse for the dome in the
Select video encoder window.
3. In the Serial port(s) on the same unit field, choose the dome’s serial port. Click OK.
4. Click the Test tab and then the Live video button. Use the green on-screen controls to
test that the camera is responding to PTZ commands.
5. Change the PTZ number field (under the Properties tab) to the dome’s PTZ number
(typically 1).
13
Creating Presets and Patterns
Presets and patterns can be created using the AdminCenter’s GUI interface, without having
to rely on the dome’s menu.
