LOGGING ON AND FAMILIARIZATION
Port Forwarding
Port Forwarding
The Port Forwarding feature is generally used when an Internet client wants to connect to a
particular NVR in a private Local Area Network (LAN). This feature is enabled by defining port
forwarding rules in the Router. By defining these rules, you can send data using the range of
ports on the internet side to a port and IP addresses on the private LAN network.
Scenarios of Port Forwarding
Note:
The scenarios described in the subsequent sections only cover port forwarding
required for the NVR client to connect to the NVR. For using MAXPRO Mobile and
MAXPRO NVR Web Client from the internet, the port used by Web Server on the
NVRs (Default Port: 80) should also be set up for port forwarding. See Changing
Default Port 80 for the MAXPRO Mobile app and MAXPRO Web Client for further
details.
Scenario1- Services mapped to different ports
Two NVRs in a private LAN are configured behind the router, and all the services on the NVRs
are running on the default ports. In the router’s port forwarding section you need to map the
ports for each of the services running in the NVRs. An internet MAXPRO NVR client can
connect to a NVR, by specifying the public IP address given to the router and corresponding
ports mapped in the port forwarding table in the router.
Figure 3-5
Port Forwarding Scenario 1
In the above figure:
MAXPRO NVR 1 and MAXPRO NVR 2 have the default port numbers, 20007, 26026, 10000
configured for the following services respectively:
•
Trinity Server
•
Trinity Controller
•
Storage Engine
In the router’s port forwarding table, the default ports numbers for these services are mapped
to the public port numbers (8001, 8002, 8003) of the router.
An external MAXPRO NVR client can access the MAXPRO NVRs using the following settings:
•

Server IP: 199.63.245.84

LOGGING ON AND FAMILIARIZATION

•
Server Port: 8001
•
Controller IP: 199.63.245.84
•
Controller Port: 8002
•
Storage Engine IP: 199.63.245.84
•
Storage Engine Port: 8003
Note:
The mapping of the ports 8001, 8002, 8003 to the respective NVR IP and ports
(20007, 26026, 1000) helps an external MAXPRO NVR Internet client to connect
to the MAXPRO NVR system.
Scenario 2: Services mapped to existing ports
A single NVR is configured behind the router, and all the services on the NVR are running on
the default ports. In the router’s port forwarding section specify the default ports. The Internet
client can just specify the public IP Address and default ports to connect to the NVR. The
drawback of mapping to the same ports is that only one NVR can be behind the router.
Figure 3-6
Port Forwarding scenario 2
In the above figure:
There is a single MAXPRO NVR 1 with the default port numbers, 20007, 26026, 10000
configured for the following services respectively:
•
Trinity Server
•
Trinity Controller
•
Storage Engine
In the router’s port forwarding table, the default ports numbers for these services are
specified.
An external MAXPRO NVR client can access the MAXPRO NVRs using the following settings:
•
Server IP: 199.63.245.84
•
Server Port: 20007
•
Controller IP: 199.63.245.84

Select the FPS for a camera. FPS refers to the number of pictures displayed in
exactly one second. FPS is a measure of how much information is used to store and
display motion video. The term applies to digital video. Each frame is a still image;
displaying frames in quick succession creates the illusion of motion.
Note:
For live streaming, 30 FPS is the maximum frame rate in NTSC format, and
25 FPS is the maximum frame rate in PAL format.
•
The GOP is defaulted to “5”. Type a new GOP as applicable. Group of Pictures
(GOP) are individual frames (number of pictures) that are grouped together and
played back for viewing. A GOP consists of “IFrame” picture type that represents a
fixed image independent of other picture types. Each GOP begins with this type of
picture.
Under Record Quality Settings
•
Select the FPS for Background recording.
•
Select the FPS for Event based recording.
Live/Recording Quality can be varied by controlling GOP. The formula for this is calculated
as follows: Recording Quality resulting FPS = Live FPS/(GOP*I Frame Number for
recording).
For example, in the following table if Live FPS is configured as “30” and Continuous
recording is set to record “Every I frame” and Event recording is set to “Same as Live” with
GOP value set to “5”, the result is 6 FPS continuous recording quality and 30 FPS event

Server VMD (Smart VMD)
Server VMD (Smart VMD)
Video Motion Detection (VMD) is a built-in intelligent feature that enables you to configure
motion detection for the live video streamed by MAXPRO NVR using its connected cameras.
Configuring motion detection involves defining one or more Region of Interest (ROI) in the
field of view. Regions are drawn in the field of view to specify where the motion should be
detected or excluded.
The Server VMD running on the MAXPRO NVR provides superior performance comparing to
regular VMD, due to its capability to differentiate real object motion from:
•
Image or camera noises
•
Irrelevant motion due to weather (example: rain, snow)
•
Lighting changes
Few cameras have built-in VMD capabilities. There is a provision included in the MAXPRO
NVR user interface to manually configure VMD (known as Server-based VMD) for the cameras
that do not have the VMD feature built-in them.
Caution: At a time, a camera can be configured in NVR to only have its built-in
(camera based VMD) or the Server VMD (Smart VMD) enabled.

least 1 iFrame, Smart VMD ignores as noise to reduce false alarms. Example:

enough regions to capture relevant motion in the area of interest. Server VMD is

The Exclude region overwrites the Include region. No motion is detected in

Type the Hold Time (sec). This indicates the hold time for the motion video after the
detected motion stops. When motion is detected and motion video has started being
recorded, if motion stops briefly and then resumes within Hold Time (sec), no
“Motion stopped” event is generated. This brief gap in detected motion is ignored
and motion triggered recording continues without interruption. On the other hand, if
motion stops and no new motion is detected within Hold Time (sec), then the
“Motion stopped” event is reported. Motion triggered recording is then stopped after
additional Post-Alarm duration.
The Hold Time range is 0 to 30 seconds.

You can drag and drop a video source such as a camera or scan sequence from the Site
window on the Salvo layout. The video is displayed in the panel of the salvo layout. You can
also double-click the video source name to select it.
Multiple video source selection
You can drag and drop multiple video sources from the Site window on the salvo layout. The
salvo layout starts displaying video from the devices in different panels.
Note:
Ensure that enough panels are available before you drag and drop multiple video
sources on the salvo layout. This is necessary to avoid automatic closing of the
present video display. For example, if a salvo layout consists of only one panel
displaying video, select another salvo layout containing more panels before
dragging and dropping multiple video sources.
Multiple panel selection
You can select multiple panels on the salvo layout. This enables you to perform actions on
multiple video displays simultaneously. For example, you can select multiple video display
and start recording video, apply color correction, and perform other similar actions. See Video
Control Options in the Panel Toolbars.

Creating Clips
You can create clips from recorded video. These clips can be saved with digital signatures.
Digital signatures ensure authenticity of clips. Digital signatures are primarily used to
authenticate videos that are produced in courts as evidence. A digital signature generates a
unique string for the clip using algorithms recommended by the W3C. The World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C) is an international consortium where member organizations, a full-time
staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. If the video in the clip is
modified, a verification check for the unique string fails indicating that the content is tampered.
When a clip is saved with the digital signature, a package file with the.PKG extension is
created to save the clip.

VMD Settings and Motion-based Recording Configuration
VMD Settings and Motion-based Recording
Configuration
VMD setup consists of:
•
Event-based recording configuration on MAXPRO NVRs.
•
Server VMD (Smart VMD) settings on all video devices supported in MAXPRO NVR.
•
Built-in VMD (Camera based VMD) settings on Honeywell IP cameras.
Overview of MAXPRO NVR Recording Options
Each IP camera configured in the NVR can be set for Continuous (background) recording,
event-based recording, or both.
When using event-based recording, Honeywell recommends that you:
•
Set up recording on events at a higher frame rate
•
Set up continuous (background) recording at a lower frame rate
Continuous (background) recording at a lower frame rate and event-based recording with
boosted higher frame rate ensure that:
•
Video recording is not missed in the event that the motion is not sufficient to trigger a
VMD event on the camera; that is, the motion does not meet the configured VMD
threshold on the camera.
•
Video records longer than pre and post event recording with the lower frame rate; that is,
Continuous (background) recorded video provides better forensics.
MAXPRO NVR supports recording at different frame rates for each camera using a single live
stream from the camera and recording quality settings.The NVR Recording Quality Setting
options for Continuous (background) and Event recording are:
•
Same as Live
•
Every IFrame
•
Every Second IFrame
•
Every Third IFrame.
Example:
For a camera configured in the NVR with these settings:
•
FPS = 5
•
GOP = 5
•
Record Quality Setting: Background/Continuous Recording = Every IFrame
•
Event Based Recording = Same as Live
The result is a Continuous (background) record rate of 1 FPS and a boosted event-based
record rate of 5 FPS.
MAXPRO NVR 3.1 Operator’s Guide

APPENDIX A
VMD Settings and Motion-based Recording Configuration
Note
•
•
•
A combination of continuous and event-based recording from a camera can
be achieved using the relationship between Frames Per Second (FPS) and
Group Of Pictures (GOP).
FPS is a measure of the images every second from the camera, while GOP
determines how frames are sequenced.
Every GOP starts with an I-frame (full image) and is followed by smaller
images which are relative to the images preceding it. So, for a GOP of 5 there
will be one I-frame for every 5 frames.
The following figure shows an example of three seconds of video at 5 FPS and 5 GOP.
Figure a-2
I-frame Example
The NVR record Quality Settings for Continuous (background) and Event recording can be
used to achieve different level of FPS by selecting one of the following options.
•
Same as Live: Every frame is recorded (5 FPS in the example)
•
Every I-frame: Every I-frame is recorded (1 FPS in the example)
•
Every Second Iframe: Every second I-frame is recorded (1 frame every 2 seconds in the
example)
•
Every Third Iframe: Every third I-frame is recorded (1 frame every 3 seconds in the
example)
Note:
For more detailed information on the relationship between FPS and GOP and
example settings to achieve different frame rates, refer to the MAXPRO NVR
Operators Guide.

APPENDIX A
VMD Settings and Motion-based Recording Configuration
Configuring Built-in VMD (Camera based VMD) on
Honeywell IP Cameras
Use the Camera Web Client to configure VMD on the camera itself.
For motion detection, an Administrator can enable and configure up to five zones within a
scene. The enabled and configured zones are monitored for motion.
1. Click the Video Analytics tab.
2. Click the Region drop-down list in the Video Motion Detection pane, then select a
region from the five available.
3. Click the VMD drop-down arrow, and then select Enable.
4. The regions appear as colored rectangles in their default positions. Click and drag the
box to resize and place it over the camera image. This box is the region of interest.
5. Click Motion Threshold and then select the sensitivity level:
Note:
•
Low (30%) (most sensitive)
•
Medium (50%)
•
High (80%) (least sensitive).
It is recommended that you use the medium sensitivity at 50% as the initial
setting. It can be further adjusted as explained in Fine Tuning the Video Motion
Detection.
6. Click Apply.
Note
•
•
To ensure that the VMD settings have been applied, click another tab, and
then back to the Video Settings tab. Check the VMD settings for the changes
you made.
In the unlikely event that the VMD settings are not applied, please try logging
out of the software and logging back in. Then repeat step 1 through step 5
above.
Disabling Motion Detection
To disable a zone, click the VMD drop-down arrow and then select Disable.
Fine Tuning the Video Motion Detection
For optimum results, adjust the VMD configuration to match the camera field of view, regions
of interest and other factors. The recommended configuration procedure is:
1. Identify areas in the image where motion detection alarms should be triggered. In some
applications, motion anywhere in the image needs to be reported. In other applications,
you may wish to monitor specific areas such as doors, parking lot entrances, or other
areas of interest.
2. Select one of the five available regions for each area of interest and draw the
region-of-interest box for that region to fully cover the area of interest.
210
MAXPRO NVR 3.1 Operator’s Guide
. . . . .
APPENDIX A
VMD Settings and Motion-based Recording Configuration
Note:
The camera only measures motion inside the drawn box. For example, a person
or vehicle moving along the boundary of the box may or may not trigger an
alarm, because their motion is only partially evaluated. Therefore, it is important
to adjust the region-of-interest boxes to fully cover the required areas of interest.
3. Test your initial configuration setup by observing VMD performance to ensure that
relevant scene motion triggers alarms and to ensure that the camera is not reporting false
alarms (such as VMD alarms triggered due to image noise). In cameras with a wide field
of view, or when activity happens far away from the camera, people and vehicles may
appear rather small in the image. In such cases, it may not be possible to apply a single
area of interest to the whole field of view to reliably detect motion. In such cases,
Honeywell recommends covering the camera view with multiple, smaller region-ofinterest boxes, concentrating on specific areas where motion alarms are important, such
as entrances, restricted access areas, and so on.
4. Use the medium sensitivity of 50% as the initial setting. You can adjust this further if
required.
Note:
Observe VMD performance in all expected lighting conditions after the initial
configuration is applied. Ensure that relevant scene motion triggers alarms and
ensure that the camera is not reporting false alarms (such as VMD alarms
triggered due to image noise).
Increasi ng VMD S ens itivity
If the relevant scene motion does not trigger VMD alarms, try the following adjustments to
increase VMD sensitivity.
•
Decrease the sensitivity level from 80% to 50%, or from 50% to 30%. This
change causes smaller objects to trigger alarms and it requires smaller contrast
level to report an alarm.This should be the primary adjustment mechanism.
•
Reduce the size of the region-of-interest box and, if needed, add more regions.
Note that this adjustment causes smaller objects to also trigger VMD alarms.
Note:
After VMD sensitivity is increased, observe the performance in other lighting
conditions in case further tuning is required to prevent false alarms.
Decreasing VM D Sensitivity
If VMD alarms are triggered even when there is no motion and no significant changes in the
video, try the following adjustments to decrease VMD sensitivity.
MAXPRO NVR 3.1 Operator’s Guide
•
Increase the sensitivity level from 30% to 50%, or from 50% to 80%. This primary
adjustment mechanism increases the required contrast level (or amount of
noise) required to trigger an alarm. Higher sensitivity levels also require larger
amounts of motion to be observed before a VMD alarm is triggered.
•
Increase the size of the region-of-interest box. This adjustment prevents smaller
objects (or smaller areas of noise) from triggering VMD alarms.

VM D Confi gur ati on Examples
The sensitivity level examples below are provided only for illustration. Other factors such as
lighting level, contrast, and image noise may affect VMD performance and may require further
tuning adjustments as described above.
Normal Field of View
In a normal field of view, with a person walking in front of the camera, the maximum
recommended region-of-interest box sizes would be as shown by the red boxes as in the
following figure.
Figure a-4
Sensitivity Level Comparison: Normal Field of View
Wide Field of View
In a wide field of view camera, the car shown below would be expected to trigger a VMD alarm
if the VMD region-of-interest box is not larger than indicated by the red box.
Figure a-5
Sensitivity Level Comparison: Wide Field of View
Combination Field of View
For cameras with a wide-angle field of view covering a large outdoor scene, people who walk
far away from the camera might appear rather small in the image. If motion needs to be
detected in the entire field of view, the following region-of-interest box configuration is
recommended.
212
•
Three smaller boxes, set to 30% sensitivity, covering the upper portion of the
image where people appear small.
•
Two larger boxes, set to 50% sensitivity, covering the lower portion of the image
where objects appear larger.
