1. Introduction
We present to you the next version of the VDRS AV system which includes many new
functions and modules. Many of these changes are the effects of our cooperation with You
and our Partners. We want to bring your attention to the possibilities of simultaneous image
recording from network cameras, and widely used analog cameras. We have also
redeveloped archives and wider capabilities of controlling the whole system.
1.1 System description
VDRS AV is a digital video recorder designed for cooperation with CCTV cameras. It
uses PC class computers which work under control of Microsoft Windows 2000/XP
operating system. The new VDRS AV system version can record image from up to 64
cameras, servicing 16 output switches and 16 alarm inputs. Moreover, the system can be
hybrid; that is one system that can service both analog and IP cameras. Thanks to this it is
possible to upgrade an existing installation and add IP or analog cameras. The program
allows wide possibilities of motion detection settings, serching for motion in the archives,
and servicing alarm events. Our new differential image-compression method guarantees
image recording longer than in other systems of that sort without compromising the image
quality and storage space. This system can also be managed via the local network and
Internet.
Software for managing VDRS AV system consists of two independent applications:
1. VDR-S (Video Digital Recording - Server)
2. VDR-C (Video Digital Recording – Client)
The first application is a server: which processes image from the cameras, manages user
accounts, tasks, and controls the cameras. The second one is used as a client on most
standard PC systems that allow easy remote connection to the server application. The client
application is also available on mobile devices such as: (mobile phones, Pocket PC) which
allows access to camera images from any place in the world.

1. Introduction
2. Installation of the system
The way of installing video capture cards and VDRS AV system software on PC class
computer is presented below.
2.1 Video capture cards installation
Depending on the system You get, you will recieve anywhere from one to four cards 1.
Begin installation by mounting all of the cards on the mainboard. Cards are placed in
available PCI slots:
Figure 1: Installing the video capture card
If You decide to use watchdog function,2 in this stage it is necessary to connect the video
card with the mainboard reset switch with the enclosed cable. On the video capture board
find two-pin watchdog socket and connect it with reset socket placed on the mainboard.
2.2 Installing USB dongle
The system needs USB dongle installed for proper work. Plug it into an available USB
port in Your computer. Remember to have it plugged permanently, or else the system will
shut down. During the work of the system the dongle glows green, which indicates it is
1 In VDRS NET system no video capture cards are needed for image recording
2 When the card won't receive a signal from the processor restart of the computer will occur. It is a protection against
uncontrolled system failure

2. Installation of the system
properly functioning.
2.3 Connecting cameras
To connect the cameras, plug the camera cables with BNC connectors to the video
capture cards.
Figure 2: Connecting the cameras
If Your video capture card has 15 pin connector, it is necessary to plug a "transition
cable" to the card and then connect cameras to it. Lower inputs on the card connect cameras
from numbers 1 to 8; the upper inputs connect cameras from 9 to 16.
2.4 Software installation
When all the devices are connected correctly You can begin to install software. Turn on
the computer and when Your Operating System detects new devices, ignore all dialog
boxes until the VDRS AV software is installed. Next run the application titled
VDRS_PROFESSIONAL_INSTALL.exe from the included software CD.
ATTENTION: during installation of VDRS application, drivers for capture boards are installed at
the same time, which can cause "Windows warning" displayed regarding lack of Microsoft digital
signature in the installed drivers. In this case press "Continue anyway" in order to install the
drivers properly.
After the software is installed You will be asked to restart the computer. At this stage
Version 3.0.0.78

2. Installation of the system
select "No, I will restart later". Begin video capture cards' drivers installation. If the
Operating System still shows the system window regarding new devices, follow the steps of
the installation panel. If else, You have to install devices manually by: using your mouse to
right click on My computer icon, select Properties, click on the Hardware tab, the clicking
the Device manager button. Next choose Scan for hardware changes. The system will
initiate a creator for installing new devices. Follow the steps. To check if video capture card
is installed properly go to Device manager
and "unroll" Sound, video and game
controllers menu (or DVR boards when DSP boards are used). After succesful installation
of all of the devices restart Your computer.

After finishing click OK. This will end the first stage ( camera configuration ) and the
system will proceed to creating video archives. It is important to remember that the
wizard can be accessed later from Windows Start Menu – VDRS PROFESSIONAL
WIZARD.
3.1.1.5 Disk archive
For the system to function properly it is necessary to configure the disk archive; that is to
point to the disk space which will be used for storing the cameras images and sounds. The
more space is utilized, the more archived recordings will be stored.
A disk archive is created in the second stage of configuration wizard – after the camera
configuration is completed.
Version 3.0.0.78

3. Use and configuration of the system
Figure 10: Creating disk archive
First window of archive creator offers 3 choose options:
Create a new media archive – create new disk archive
Use existing media archive – configuration of the existing disk
No, don't create media archive now, exit wizard – closing wizard, without creating disk
archive
ATTENTION: In case of selecting the no option, recording function will not be availible. Later
configuration and editing the archive will be availible by "Archive Sotarge" function in the
"Configuration" menu of VDRS application.
In the next step, the type of archive that will be used, needs to be created. By marking
"Create archive which will use preallocated disk space" an archive size defined by user will
be allocated. Otherwise, archives will be build increasingly, which means that it will
increase it's size during data recording, untill it fills whole disk space of selected partition.
ATTENTION: After filling assigned disk space, VDRS system continues recording,
successively overwriting the "oldest" archives.

2. Archive folder path – what folder the archives will be stored. At the same time,
configuration of multiple archive path's is possible.
3. Size of disk archives - defined size of archive folder - changing is possible after
double-click on numerical value.
ATTENTION:
1. Option presented above is available only when the disk archive is created with
preallocated disk space (see figure 10). If the increasing archive is created the option will
not be available.
2. Minimum disk space cannot be lower than:
[number of connected cameras] x 32 MB,
- lower disk space can cause recording malfunctions.
4. Adding path to archive – allows to add another path to disk archive
5. Deleting archive path – erases the selected disk archive path
Version 3.0.0.78

3. Use and configuration of the system
6. Declaring the available archive size - on selected disk partition
7. Creating archive – after defining index paths and archive size use this option to create
archive for the recordings
8. Erasing recordings - older than defined number of days
Clicking OK button after defining the paths to index folder and disk archives folder will
make system to proceed to the next stage of archive configuration:
Figure 12: Creating disk archive
1. Yes, change allocated disk space now – this option should be checked when
creating new archive or adding new path for data storage. After choosing this
option system shows the next stage of configuration (see figure 13)
2. No, I preallocated disk space already – this option must be selected when
path of the existing archive is added, or recording path is deleted.
Version 3.0.0.78

3. Use and configuration of the system
Rysunek 13: Creating Disk Archives
Use fast disk space allocation – fast alocation of disk space - It lasts
considerably faster than standard. however it can cause archive files fragmentation.
Delete files with an unoptimal size – archive files which have unoptimal size
will be deleted ( for example when adding existing archive, which was created
increasingly )
On this stage, the configuration of disk archives is finished.
3.1.2 System administrator
When running the system for the first time it will ask to define the system administator's
login and password. The Administrator is a person who possesses all the rights to change
system parameters and control system functionality.
It's very important to remember
administrator's login and password because once set, they cannot be changed. Also the
administrator shouldn't pass the login information to anyone and keep it confidential.

3. Use and configuration of the system
device which can help You to adjust the system to all of Your specific needs. Activation of
the scheduler events can be achieved either by defining the time range or activation of the
alarm input.
During the work with scheduler it is necessary to pay attention to the order of the
scheduled tasks. The higher the task is on the list the lower is it's priority. For example if the
first task on the list activates continuous image recording for all cameras and the second task
disables the recording a the same time – then the system will disable recording as the second
task has higher priority. In case on task conflict (overlapping) proper marks will be shown
on the time axis. Suppose two positions were defined, which "time borders" overlap each
other. Time axis will be displayed as follows:
Real time range for performing task no. 1
Task no. 1
Time range for performing task no. 2
Figure 15: Scheduler - conflict
Time range for performing task no. 1
Task no. 2
Figure 16: Scheduler - conflict
To use e-mail notification in the scheduler access to SMTP server has to be configured in

Options
Recording time after motion detection – if motion option was selected it
determines how much time (in seconds) after the motion detection the
recording will last; motion time before motion alarm – determines how long
the motion has to be (in seconds) to start an alarm event.
After motion alarm
The way that systems informs about alarm event. There are three
possibilities:
•
Send email - sends email notification on previously given address
•
Set outputs - activates selected output switcha
•
Connect to client – enables to connect to selected client application,
used for example in monitoring headquaters
3.3.2 Schedule Sounds
"Schedule sounds" bookmark allows to "plan" system reactions to sound events.
Activation conditions are the same as in camera schedule. The difference is that You choose
sound channels. Additional reaction to alarm event is starting the image recording from
selected cameras. Recording time is set in Options field.
Night can represent an example situation. Cameras have limited possibilities to detect
motion but sensitive microphone can detect noise, start the alarm and enable output switch,
which will turn on the light and this will make image recording possible.
3.3.3 Alarm inputs schedule
This module is used for programming the behavior of the alarm inputs and their
reactions on alarm. Programming the event looks the same as in camera and sound schedule.

3. Use and configuration of the system
Additionaly, after the alarm detection system can add bookmarks to archives and enable the
output switch (for example with connected siren). In the Options panel Activation time

an alarm).
3.3.4 System alerts
System alerts are responsible for notifications about changes in system work. You can
set notications for example about aplication shutdown, remote user login or camera signal
lost. The list of available alerts is presented below:
Program start up

have PRO4 system (25 fps). We set the constant number of frames
per second for each camera on 4. 9 frames per second stay unused
( 25 fps - [4 cam. X 4 fps = 16 fps] = 9 fps). These 9 unused frames

Compression
Description
Analog cameras
MJPEG
Records the individual frames as JPEG images – each
frame is coded individually (every frame is a key frame).
It requires plenty of hard disk space but gives good image
quality. It uses average CPU power. Amount of generated
data doesn't depend on amount of motion on the screen
MPEG-4
Encoding and decoding uses a lot of CPU power. Uses
key and delta frames. Delta is an ordinary full frame
calculated from a difference between previous frame and
curent frame. That's why a big amount of data is
generated when there are no changes in the image (but
less when changes are big). It guarantees high image
quality
DJPEG
Codec developed by Alnetsystems Company. Codes only
image areas which change – uses key and delta frames.
When image doesn't change system is not generating any
data. CPU usage is low and hard disk space for archive
storage strongly depends on hom much motion is on the
screen.

Version 3.0.0.78
Frames
Quality of key frames, which are background to delta
frames. The higher value the higher quality (and more
hard disk space needed for the archives)
Delta
Quality of Delta frames (the part of the image which
changes)
Delta Sensitivity
Parameter which allows to set how system reacts on
changing image. When set too low delta frames won't be
replaced (for instance person in motion wearing clothes
which colou that matches the background color)
VBR
Variable Bit Rate – codec generates a stream of
compressed data with variable intensity (which depends
on amount of motion on the screen). The image quality is
on the same level
CBR
Constant Bit Rate – codec changes the image quality so
the data stream will have approximately constant bit-rate.
This option is useful for network cameras, which use
UDP protocol

VDR-A application) if it exists in the archives or not.
Watermark is unique for each VDR-S system. Every
modification of the recorded video destroys the

Prealarm
–
–
Prealarm is a function of early reaction for alarms. It enables to recreate
recordings from moments before activating the alarm. When function is
turned on in the applicatio, buffering image and movement is detected (and
recording is set on) the frames recorded before alarm remain to user's
disposal. The length of buffered image in case of network cameras depends
on memory size reserved for prealarm. For analog cameras two parameters
are being set up:
Prealarm buffer size (frame) – quantity of buffered frames
Buffer every n-th frame – ratio of buffered frames to non-buffered
Example:
Camera in the system records 5 fr/sec. If define 5 buffered frames and quantity
of buffered frames for one the result will be 1 second of buffered recording. The
formula for calculating length of the buffer is presented below.
Buffer =
Prealarm buffer size(frame) * Buffer every n-th frame
Number of recorded frames
For the example above:
(5 * 1) / 5 = 1 sec
