System Operation Overview
Overview of VK-64/VK-16
Network Video Recorder
Network Video Recorder is software for viewing video, recording video and audio, and playing video from
multiple network cameras (hereafter referred to as camera servers). VK-64/VK-16 and VK-Lite enable viewing
and recording of JPEG and MPEG-4 video, two-way audio communication, and audio recording.
Network Video Recorder Configuration
The Network Video Recorder consists of storage server software and viewer software. You can record videos
from multiple camera servers and can log event information of motion detection and external device input,
using the storage server software. Also you can view live videos from multiple camera servers, and play
recorded videos saved on storage servers, using the viewer software.

System Operation Overview
VK-64 Viewer (Viewer Only)
You need to purchase the required number of viewer licenses to use additional viewers. Also, VK-64 Viewer is
suitable for a monitoring system, in which you need just monitoring, not recording. You can view live videos
from and control up to 64 camera severs. (Some functions are not available, such as recording and playing
video, displaying event logs of motion detection and external device input, and still frames.)
Upgrade from Older Versions
To upgrade from an older version (v1.1, v1.2, v1.3, v1.4 or v2.0) to v2.1, download the free patch installer from
our website. License keys used for the older versions can also be used for v2.1.
Network Video Recorder VK-Lite
Network Video Recorder VK-Lite supplied with VB-C500D and VB-C60 is a simplified version software of
VK-64/VK-16. VK-Lite allows displaying video, recording video and audio, and playing audio, of up to 4 camera
servers.
Y
P
O
A VK-Lite Viewer license is given per camera server. When using multiple camera servers, you need to buy
additional licenses ("VK-Lite Additional Viewer License") for each camera.

Case3
Using Multiple Storage Servers and Viewers
Up to 10 storage servers can be used on a single network. When multiple camera servers are used in a
system, you can use one of them as a master storage server, and use the others as slave storage servers.
Master storage servers are storage servers, which viewers first connect to, and are used to store
information of camera servers registered to each storage server and to store event logs. Although there is
no limit on the number of viewers to be connected, up to 10 clients can connect to a single server.In all, up
to 192 camera servers can be operated in one system. You can operate a system with a combination of
storage servers and VK-64, VK-16 or VK-Lite.

Important: Before Starting Operation
Please be sure to perform operational tests in the actual environment before starting operation.
Be aware of the following points prior to operation.
z Video recording and live viewing may not be done as your settings, depending on the network environment
and the PC's performance.
z Under a heavy load on the CPU or disk of the PC, the recording may not be done at the specified frame rate,
recording may be suspended temporarily, or you may receive slow responses to the viewer operation. Also,
when the amount of free disk space become slow, recording may be suspended temporarily, because the
disk load increases due to deleting process of recorded video files.
z Operation and performance of storage servers and viewers may be affected on PCs, where anti-virus
software or firewall software is running.
z When using a proxy server, video recording may not be done at the specified frame rate, or live viewing may
become interrupted. Also, communication between a storage server and viewer may be interrupted. In those
cases, audio cannot be recorded.
Reference

P
O

Server by Specifying the IP address")
z Please be sure to read the following reference page for notes on each version of Windows OS.
Reference
"Notes on Operating Environment" in Administrator’s Manual
z When using a NAS server, take note of the following points.
C
• Use recommended NAS servers with Windows Storage Server 2003 or Windows Storage Server 2003
R2.
• To record video to a NAS server, it is recommended that the network for communicating with a
camera server be separated from the network for communication with the NAS server.
z When using audio functions, take note of the following points.
Audio functions are available on VB-C500D, VB-C60, VB-C300, VB-C50i, VB-C50iR, VB-C50FSi.
• Audio can be sent and received using VK Viewer.
• Audio recording is available. However, it is not possible to record audio without video. Video and
audio must be recorded together.
• Video and audio may be asynchronous.
• Audio data may be interrupted depending on the PC's performance and the network environment.
• Audio data may be interrupted on the PC, where antivirus software is running.
• Audio functions cannot be used via a proxy server.

See Administrator’s Manual for detailed explanations of each step.
Step1
Preparation
Before installation, check the free space of the hard drive required for a storage
server, considering the video retention period and recording conditions, and then
prepare necessary equipments.
See "System Design Concept" in Chapter1
Step2
Camera Installation and Setup
Set up a camera.

Recording schedules include normal schedule and special day schedule, so
you can configure detailed settings.
See "Chapter 4 Register Camera Server and Set Recording Schedule"
Step7
Viewer Settings
C
You can customize your monitoring screen by designing and registering layouts
of the viewing area. You can register multiple layouts and switch them at a fixed
time interval, so it is possible to build large-scale monitoring systems. You can
also set an upper limit on the viewing frame rate and configure automatic
adjustment settings, as well as configure settings for event notifications to
operators and audio alert depending on the priority level.

Management and Maintenance
Network failure caused by unforeseen problems may negatively affect on
the surveillance system operation. In order to avoid, it is recommended to
carry out maintenance, such as periodical back up of recorded data and
settings data.

VK-64/VK-16 Installation
When registering a camera, first set the camera's the location and zone to make
it easier to categorize registered cameras. If we look at an example of a retailer
with multiple branches and stores, the branches and stores correspond to
locations. The sub-classification, such as entrances, cash desks, parking lots,
of each store correspond to zones. Register camera servers after setting
locations and zones.

VK-Lite System Installation Example
Step 1: Preparation
Calculate how much free hard disk space will be required for the storage server from the recording conditions
to ensure that the system can operate stably.
The amount of hard disk space required can be calculated using the following formula.
Required free hard disk space
VK-Lite Installation
= No. of cameras x Video data size x Recording frame rate x Video retention period
(sec.)
= 4 x 50 x 1 x (60 x 60 x 24 x 14)
~ 291000000 B
~ 300 GB
Y
P
O
The amount of free hard disk space required is therefore over 300 GB. However, this value does not include the
space required in the system area.
Note
Do not use an external hard drive to store recorded video data. The video may not be recorded properly or
the data may be corrupted.
Reference
"System Design Concept" in Administrator’s Manual
C
Step 2: Camera Server Installation and Setup
Configure initial camera server settings, such as the IP address setting.
See Start Guide for details of initial camera server settings.
Tip
When you use presets and preset tours, it is recommended to complete camera server settings in advance,
so that you can build the system more efficiently.
