Installation and Operation Manual
ABOUT THE MV16i
The MV16i multiplexer represents the latest advance in digital multiplexers. It lets you record pictures from multiple video cameras
while viewing live video or video playback.
The time-lapse VCR is a proven and valuable tool for documenting visual events captured by a single camera. Applications employing multiple cameras require additional VCRs, sequential video
switchers or quad picture processors. Each solution has trade-offs.
The VCR is an expensive piece of equipment which requires maintenance. The video switcher reduces the rate at which each camera
is recorded. The quad picture processor reduces the quality of the
recorded image. For many applications, none of these solutions is
satisfactory. The MV16i addresses the requirement to view and
record multiple cameras through the application of digital video
multiplexing, Dynamic Time Division (DTD) and Vertical Interval Signal (VIS) technology.
Using proprietary DTD technology, the MV16i continuously analyzes the motion content of all camera pictures. It determines camera priority based on picture activity and outputs pictures to the
screen and to tape. Maximum efficiency is achieved by dedicating
greater recording time to those cameras at which activity is detected. VIS technology is employed to encode every picture sent
to the VCR with the camera number, camera name, alarm status,
time and date.
The MV16i displays camera pictures in several formats: full-screen,
Picture-In-Picture (PIP), 2x roving zoom, 2 x 2 pictures, 3 x 3
pictures, and 4 x 4 pictures. All formats are available while viewing
live or taped pictures. During tape playback, pictures are displayed
with full screen quality in the selected format. Pictures have
512 x 464 (512 x 512 CCIR) resolution with up to 256 gray levels.

MV16i Multivision Plus™
TECHNICAL OVERVIEW
Video Input and Output
The MV16i is available configured for either the EIA or CCIR
standard video. The unit features video camera inputs with a passive
looping output for each. Camera input termination is
programmable via an on-screen menu. Synchronization or phasing
of cameras is not required.
Two monitor outputs allow viewing of live camera or videotaped
pictures on standard monitors. The Main Monitor displays selected
cameras in any available display format. The Call Monitor displays one selected or alarm camera in the full screen format.
Motion Detection
The MV16i continuously monitors all camera inputs for motion.
When motion is detected, the MV16i increases the frequency with
which that camera is recorded and displayed. Recording and display time are dynamically allocated according to the scene activity. Motion sensitivity for each camera input can be set using the
16 x 12 target graphic overlay. Targets can be turned on or off as
required. Target sensitivity is fixed.
Video Display
The Main Monitor displays live camera pictures or pictures recalled from tape. The display is based on a 512 x 464 x 16 bit
(512 x 512 x 16 bit CCIR) digital video memory containing two
interlaced video fields. As many as 256 gray shades can be displayed in six screen formats, including full screen, 2x zoom, Picture-In-Picture (PIP), 2 x 2, 3 x 3 and 4 x 4.
The Call Monitor displays one alarm camera or manually selected
camera. This display is based on full screen switched analog video.
A graphic generator with two interlaced bit-mapped pages provides the alphanumeric and graphic overlays required for on-screen
menus, camera titles and system messages.
Installation and Operation Manual
Encoder Output
3
The video encoder produces a single video signal containing field
by field samples from all camera inputs. The signal is provided in
composite format for connection to a video recorder. Encoder
operation is continuous and independent of display and decoder
functions. All inputs are sampled in camera number order until
motion is detected, when sampling is weighted in favor of the active cameras.
The encoder uses Vertical Interval Signaling (VIS) techniques to
encode system information onto video output to the VCR. Time,
date, camera title, camera number, and alarm status information
are placed on the 16 horizontal lines preceding the first active video
line. This technique can improve vertical sync recovery and can
also eliminate the degraded graphics associated with poor tape recorder performance.
Decoder Output
The video decoder processes the video output by the VCR during
playback, recovering the video from each camera originally recorded. The decoder digitizes the playback video and recovers the
VIS information encoded onto each field. If the recovered field is
to be displayed, it is written to the video display memory.

Installation and Operation Manual
SYSTEM CHECKOUT
11
MV16i system operation can be checked immediately after installation with the MV16i in the factory default state. While the MV16i
itself requires no adjustment, system components such as the
monitor, cameras and video recorder should be checked for proper
operation and adjustment. The system checkout procedure involves
three steps: monitor calibration, a camera check, and a video recorder check. At least two video cameras are required to check
system operation.
Refer to Figure 1 — Basic Multivision Plus System. Review all system connections. Make certain that all required connections are
in place. Apply power to all system equipment.
Monitor Calibration
This process involves adjusting monitor display brightness and
contrast based on the standard gray bar pattern generated by the
MV16i. The procedure is as follows:
1.
Press function+down arrow. Internally generated gray bars
appear on the Main Monitor.
2.
Turn off any automatic picture control features on the monitor that might interfere with manual adjustment.
3.
Adjust the monitor’s contrast and brightness controls so that
the eight bars progress evenly from white to black.
The Main Monitor is now correctly calibrated to the output of
the MV16i. To calibrate the Call Monitor, temporarily connect its
video cable to the main mon output and perform steps 2 and 3
again.
While monitor adjustments can be changed to suit the viewer,
calibrate the monitor before you adjust any cameras or investigate
a display or video quality problem.
12
MV16i Multivision Plus™
Camera Check
The MV16i multicamera display capability makes checking camera performance as simple as comparing two pictures on one screen.
This method is preferable to the direct camera to monitor technique because it allows precise adjustment of each camera against
a chosen reference camera. In this way, differences between cameras are minimized and picture quality is optimized.
NOTE: Before performing a camera check, complete the
monitor calibration procedure described above. This
is important! There is little advantage in optimizing
system cameras using a monitor that is out of
adjustment.
The camera check procedure is as follows:
1.
Complete the monitor calibration procedure.
2.
Connect all system cameras directly to the MV16i camera inputs. Remove all connections to the looping (lower) camera
outputs.
3.
Make sure the MV16i is configured for 75-ohm termination
(the default state).
4.
Select the format (2 x 2, 3 x 3 or 4 x 4) which can display all of
the attached cameras.
5.
Pick the best looking picture and use that camera as a reference. If necessary, adjust this camera for an optimum picture.
Do NOT adjust the monitor.
6.
Adjust each remaining camera, in turn, for an optimum picture. Try to obtain the same picture quality as the reference
camera.
The cameras are now correctly adjusted with respect to the calibrated monitor and each other. You may now adjust the monitor
for the best overall display. If you choose to make further monitor adjustments, it is best to do so with all cameras displayed.
Installation and Operation Manual
Making a Test Tape
13
The easiest way to verify MV16i system operation is to make a
test recording and play it back. This process effectively tests every
piece of equipment in the system.
Before proceeding with the test tape, complete both the monitor
calibration and camera check procedures. Make sure the MV16i
monitor and all system cameras are correctly adjusted. This helps
ensure the best results during the tape test.
The tape test procedure is as follows:
1.
Place the VCR in the record mode at the 24-hour speed. (This
is the MV16i’s default VCR record speed and can be changed.)
The VCR begins recording multiplexed camera video. You
may select any viewing mode or display format while recording. This will not affect the tape because camera recording
and display are independent operations.
2.
After several minutes, stop the VCR and rewind the tape.
3.
Place the VCR in the play mode.
4.
Press the tape button on the MV16i.
When the MV16i detects the encoded VCR signal, it configures
itself for tape playback and displays all recorded cameras in the
multicamera format. To view one camera full screen, press the
corresponding camera button. To view multiple cameras, press
the desired display format button (PIP, 2 x 2, 3 x 3, 4 x 4). If the
camera or cameras do not appear, check VCR operation and review
all video connections.
This completes the tape test. If the test is not successful, repeat
the steps outlined above. If you still have problems, see
Appendix C — In Case of Trouble.

USING THE MV16i
The MV16i series is tremendously flexible and very easy to use.
No setup is required to use the basic features, yet the product can
be adapted to meet the display and recording requirements of most
multicamera security systems.
This section describes how to operate the MV16i. It is organized
by operating task and product feature.
Operating Modes
The MV16i has three basic operating modes: Live, Tape, and Setup.
Live Mode
Live mode lets you view images from one or more cameras on the
Main and/or Call Monitor. Live camera viewing does not affect
camera video output to the Call Monitor or the VCR. Camera
recording is an independent operation which is not affected by
operator actions at the front panel.
Press the live button to view live camera video. The live light comes
on indicating the Main Monitor is displaying camera input video.
Cameras may be displayed on the Main Monitor in any order, in
any available format.
The MV16i samples cameras every 1/60 of a second (1/50 of a
second PAL/CCIR). The rate at which it displays individual cameras is determined by three factors:
Tape Mode
1.
The number of cameras connected to the MV16i.
2.
Motion in the field of view of any camera which is set up for
motion detection.
3.
The number of display windows occupied by the camera.
Tape mode lets you view the video sent to or returning from the
VCR. It does not affect camera video output to the VCR. Recording camera video at the MV16i vcr out connector is an independent operation. This allows full duplex operation when the
MV16i is connected to two VCRs. See Simultaneous Record and
Play for details about two VCR operation.
Installation and Operation Manual
23
Tape Preview
To view what is being sent to the VCR, place the VCR in the
record mode (or any mode other than playback) and press the
tape button. The live and tape lights indicate that the MV16i is
displaying encoded video – full screen camera pictures, sequenced
in camera number order, at the rate set on the VCR Record Time
menu.
Tape Review
To view what has been recorded, place the VCR in the play mode
and press the tape button on the MV16i. When the MV16i detects the encoded VCR signal, it configures itself for tape playback and displays all recorded cameras in the multicamera format.
To view one camera in the full screen format, press the corresponding camera button. To view multiple cameras, press the
appropriate multicamera button (PIP, 2 x 2, 3 x 3, 4 x 4). Cameras may be displayed in any order, in any available view. Tape
playback and live camera viewing work identically in all respects.
The MV16i detects recorded alarm events during tape playback
by monitoring the VIS information returned from tape. Each field
of recorded video is encoded with alarm status information, camera number, camera title, time and date. The MV16i uses this information to identify camera related alarm events.
When the MV16i detects an alarm event on tape, it displays the
alarm camera overlaid with an alarm message. Recorded alarms do
not interfere with the detection of mechanical alarms, so the MV16i
can process both types of alarm event at the same time. See Recorded Alarms for details.
Setup Mode
Setup mode lets you customize MV16i operation to suit a specific
application. To enter the Setup mode, press the buttons required
to access setup system menus (see Security Measures in the front
of this manual). See MV16i Setup for a description of the setup
menu system.

or still field should work, provided the VCR reproduces each video
field accurately.
Installation and Operation Manual
Alarm Response
31
The MV16i detects and responds to three types of alarm events:
mechanical (contact) alarms, video loss alarms and recorded alarms.
A mechanical alarm event occurs when there is a contact closure
at any MV16i alarm input. A video loss alarm occurs when the
MV16i detects the loss of video at an active camera input. A recorded alarm event occurs when the MV16i detects an “alarm”
encoded field during tape playback.
This section describes how the MV16i responds to alarm events
and what can be done when an alarm occurs.
Mechanical Alarms
The MV16i alarm connector provides one mechanical alarm input for each camera input. These inputs can be connected to any
security device equipped with either a contact closure or
TTL/CMOS standard alarm output. Alarm polarity is selectable
via MV16i setup menus. See Alarm Input Polarity for details.
Each alarm input requires two wires. One wire connects to the
desired alarm input pin. The second wire connects to any available
ground pin. See Table 2 — Alarm Connector Pin Assignments for
details.
The MV16i responds to mechanical alarms at all times. However,
that response depends upon its mode (Live or Tape) when the
alarm occurs.
32
MV16i Multivision Plus™
Live Mode Alarm Response
When a mechanical alarm occurs in Live mode, the MV16i alerts
the operator and performs tasks required to record the alarm event

Installation and Operation Manual
Recorded Alarms
35
The MV16i detects recorded alarm events by monitoring the VIS
information returned from tape. Each field of recorded video is
encoded with alarm status information, camera number, camera
title, time and date. The MV16i uses this information to identify
camera related alarm events.
The MV16i must be in Tape mode to display and process recorded
alarms. When the MV16i detects an alarm event on tape, it responds by alerting the operator in a manner identical to that of a
live alarm. Since recorded alarm processing and live mechanical
alarm processing are independent functions, the MV16i can perform both tasks at the same time.
If the MV16i detects a recorded alarm while in Tape mode, it does
the following:
1.
Flashes the associated camera button light.
2.
Displays the alarm camera on the Call Monitor, overlaid with
the ALARM message.
3.
Overlays the alarm camera with the ALARM message if that
camera is currently displayed.
The MV16i remains in the alarm state until all of the following
occur:
•
No recorded alarms are detected.
•
The Alarm Duration time elapses.
Multiple alarms are processed in the order in which they occur.
All alarm cameras are identified by flashing camera button lights.
The MV16i detects recorded alarm events at any playback speed
(including forward and reverse search on many VCRs). When a
tape is played at the speed it was recorded, the duration of each
alarm is the same as the original event. Other tape speeds can speed
up or slow down alarm playback; however, the minimum alarm
time remains 4 seconds.

MV16i Multivision Plus™
Video Motion Detection
The MV16i detects changes in camera video (motion) at any connected camera inputs. It responds to motion by increasing the
rate at which that camera is recorded and displayed.
The goal of motion detection is to prioritize cameras for display
and recording. The MV16i gives priority to “motion” cameras by
sampling them more frequently. The result is that cameras with
motion update faster, both on screen and on tape. This technique
allows the MV16i to operate at highest efficiency while ensuring
that important events are displayed and captured on videotape.
How Motion Detection Works
The MV16i continuously scans each camera input for video. When
video is detected, the unit captures one video field in digital
memory. It then measures the value of up to 192 “target” pixels in
the picture and stores the results for reference. During the next
scan, the MV16i measures the target pixels again. Then it compares the new and old target values. If the values differ significantly, the MV16i assumes that motion has occurred.
Motion Detection Setup
By default, all 192 motion detection targets are turned on for each
camera input. You can tailor motion detection for each camera
input by turning targets off or on at the motion detection setup
screen. See Motion Detection Setup Screen for details.
Installation and Operation Manual
Motion Sequencing
37
When no motion is detected, the MV16i samples cameras in camera number order. Each time through the sequence, the VCR and
the display receive one video field from each camera. For example,
with nine cameras connected to the MV16i, the sequence is:
When motion is detected, the MV16i creates a “motion group”
and repeats the group throughout the sequence. As motion starts
and stops, cameras are added to or removed from the motion group.
For example, if motion is detected at cameras 5 and 9, then just
camera 5, then at camera 2, the sequence becomes:
At point “A”, motion is detected at cameras 5 and 9. The MV16i
creates a motion group containing these cameras. These cameras
are now sampled after each succeeding camera.
At point “B”, motion at camera 9 stops. The MV16i drops camera
9 from the motion group. Camera 5 is now sampled after each
succeeding camera.
At point “C”, motion is detected at camera 2. The MV16i adds
camera 2 to the motion group. Cameras 2 and 5 are now sampled
after each succeeding camera.
Motion detection is performed in the background and does not
interfere with other operations. The MV16i does NOT treat motion as an alarm event and will not alert the user when motion is
detected.

MV16i Multivision Plus™
SPECIAL APPLICATIONS
Simultaneous Record and Play
The features and flexibility of the MV16i make it a powerful tool
in special applications where unique capabilities are required. This
section describes several ways to use the MV16i.
The MV16i encode and decode circuits operate simultaneously.
This is referred to as “full duplex” operation. The unit can encode
camera video to one VCR while it decodes and displays video
played on a second VCR. The two operations do not interfere
with each other. Without this capability, camera video recording
must stop while a previously recorded tape is viewed.
Full duplex capability is most important in applications that demand continuous video recording of multiple cameras. It allows
an operator equipped with a second video recorder to review MV16i
tapes without interrupting the recording process.
Refer to Figure 2 — Multivision Plus System with Two VCRs. To
add a second VCR to a standard MV16i installation, perform the
following steps:
1.
Disconnect the cable at the video input of the existing VCR.
(Leave the other end of this cable connected to the MV16i
vcr out connector). This VCR is now dedicated for tape
playback.
2.
Reconnect the loose end of the cable above to the video input
of the second VCR. This VCR is now dedicated for tape
recording.
3.
Set the MV16i’s Number of VCRs toggle option to TWO.
The MV16i operates exactly the same way when connected to two
VCRs. The only difference is that recording and playback are performed by different machines.
Installation and Operation Manual
Multiplexed Video Transmission
39
Multiplexed video transmission allows two MV16i sites to monitor each other’s cameras. The operator at each site can display
either local cameras or remote site cameras. MV16i operation is
normal except that the operator presses the function+tape buttons to display the remote cameras.
Multiplexed video transmission can be one-way or two-way. Oneway transmission requires one video quality communication link.
Two-way transmission requires two such links. The link may be
coax cable, a microwave channel, or any other medium that supports real-time video. See Figure 3 — One-Way Multiplexed Video
Transmission for details.
One-Way Video Transmission
One-way multiplexed video transmission requires two MV16i’s
and one video quality communication link. The link joins the vcr
out connector at Site A to the vcr in connector at Site B. Both Site
A and Site B can view the cameras located at Site A. Site B can
view either local cameras (press live) or the cameras located at Site
A (press function+tape).
Two-Way Video Transmission
Two-way multiplexed video transmission requires two MV16i’s
and two video quality communication links. The communication
links cross connect the VCR connectors at these sites. Connect
vcr out at Site A to vcr in at Site B and vice versa. Both sites can
view either local cameras (press live) or the cameras located at the
other site (press function+tape).
To establish a multiplexed video transmission link:
1.
Connect two MV16i’s as described above (also see Figure 3 —
One-Way Multiplexed Video Transmission).
2.
Set the VCR Record Time on both MV16i’s to 002 HRS.
3.
Set the Number of VCRs option on both MV16i’s to TWO.
4.
Press function+tape on each MV16i. The MV16i enters the
video transmission mode and displays all remote cameras.
The link is now established. Press the live button to view local
cameras. Press function+tape to view remote cameras.

MV16i Multivision Plus™
MV16i Remote Control
The MV16i provides two methods of remote control, RS-232 data
and a remote control panel. Both methods use the rear panel
remote connector.
Remote Control Panel
The RP1096 remote control panel provides additional control
points that can be located up to 1000' from the MV16i. This option
includes a front panel assembly, a desktop stand, rack mount
brackets, a 50' cable and a local-end adapter. The local-end adapter
connects the panel to the remote connector. Remote panel
operation is identical to that of the local panel and control can be
exercised from either.
For further information about this option, contact your Robot
dealer or Factory Technical Support.
RS-232 Data
The RS-232 Data remote feature allows the MV16i to be controlled
from a computer or ASCII communications terminal (see
Figure 4 — Multivision Plus System with RS-232). The MV16i
recognizes special three character groups as remote button press
commands. Each command represents a single or combination
(function+button) button press. Because the RS-232 control
works by emulating button presses, any operation that can be
performed at the front panel can be performed remotely.
The RS-232 remote connection requires two wires. One wire connects to the RS-232 pin (pin 25) and the other connects to a ground
pin (pin 13, 14 or 15). The communication protocol supported by
the MV16i is as follows:
Data Rate: 1200 bps
Characters: 8
Parity:
none
Stop bits:
1
The RS-232 remote pin is an input only. The MV16i does not
echo commands or output data of any type. See Remote Connector
for more information.
Installation and Operation Manual
RS-232 Remote Command Set
41
RS-232 remote commands consist of three ASCII characters. All
commands begin with the forward slash “/” character. The two
characters following the slash identify the command. Table 1 —
RS-232 Remote Command Set lists each valid RS-232 command
and the button press it represents.
It is important to remember that most MV16i front panel buttons
have multiple functions. The effect of a button press is determined
by the current status of the unit. Determine the status of the MV16i
before issuing remote commands because inappropriate commands
will be ignored.

MV16i Multivision Plus™
APPENDIX B
ALARM RECORDING CONTROL
Most MV16i installations require that alarm events be documented
on videotape. The MV16i provides all of the necessary connectors
and signals to accomplish this and is flexible enough to satisfy
most video documentation requirements.
An MV16i alarm event begins when the unit detects an alarm signal at the alarm connector. The sequence of events following alarm
detection is determined by one or more of the following:
•
MV16i option settings.
•
VCR programming.
•
MV16i to VCR connections.
The following paragraphs describe how to configure an MV16i
installation for either uncontrolled or controlled alarm recording.
Uncontrolled Alarm Recording
When alarm recording is not controlled, the VCR records alarm
cameras as normal video. Recorded operation is not affected by
alarm events. The VCR simply records alarm video output by the
MV16i at the set time-lapse speed. Uncontrolled alarm recording
requires only video connections between the MV16i and the VCR.
Alarm connections are not required.
To set up the system for uncontrolled alarm recording:
1.
Connect the MV16i vcr in and vcr out connectors to the
VCR’s video output and video input respectively.
2.
Set the MV16i Alarm Duration option to the number of seconds you wish each alarm event to be recorded.
3.
Set the VCR’s time-lapse speed as desired.
4.
Set the MV16i VCR Record Time and VCR Alarm Record
Time options to match the speed set at the VCR.
Installation and Operation Manual
Controlled Alarm Recording
45
When alarm recording is controlled by the MV16i, the VCR responds to the alarm signal provided by the MV16i. The recorder
goes into the alarm recording mode and records at the set alarm
record speed. It remains in the alarm mode until released by the
MV16i. Controlled alarm recording requires both video and alarm
connections between the MV16i and the VCR.
To set up the system for MV16i controlled alarm recording:
1.
Connect the MV16i vcr in and vcr out connectors to the
VCR’s video output and video input respectively.
2.
Connect the VCR alarm input ground to MV16i alarm connector pin 24 (alarm output common).
3.
Connect the VCR’s alarm input to MV16i alarm connector
pin 25 if VCR alarm input polarity is active low. Connect it to
pin 23 if VCR alarm input polarity is active high.
4.
Set the MV16i Alarm Duration option to the number of seconds you wish each alarm event to be recorded.
5.
Set the VCR’s alarm duration option to “manual”.
6.
Set the MV16i VCR Record Time option to match the VCR’s
normal (nonalarm) recording speed.
7.
Set the MV16i VCR Alarm Record Time option to match the
VCR’s alarm recording speed.
