Setup camera by OSD menus
Connecting the keypad interface cable to the back of the camera keypad
Center button – Use the center button to enter menu or select a menu. The
menu will appear after pressing it for 2 seconds continuously.
Up/Down button – Move the icon vertically between the menus and options.
Left/Right button – Move the icon horizontally between the menus and
Press for 2 seconds the menu will appear. For details of the
button operations, see “Accessories” above.
Select the language of the menu for English or Chinese.
Adjust the wide dynamic range (WDR) of the camera. Three presets can be chosen:
AUTO, HIGH and LOW. Select "CUSTOM.." to customize the WDR setup .
Bias: This value can decrease the WDR when it’s negative, or
increase the WDR when it’s positive.
Limit: Set the maximum value of the WDR. The practical WDR
will not exceed the set limit value.
1. Video Signal
Video Format: Supports both NTSC and PAL standards.
Video Level: Set the output voltage of the video signal from 0.8V p-p to 1.5Vp-p. 80
corresponds to 0.8Vp-p while 150 corresponds to 1.5Vp-p. The default value is
2. Mirror
The camera provides support to display the image horizontal flipped, vertically
flipped, and to be flipped both horizontally and vertically. The default setting is
3. Image Adjustment
Gamma Correction: In “AUTO” mode, the gamma value is set automatically. Select
“MANUAL” to set the gamma by installer. The range of gamma is 25 to 100,
corresponding to practical 0.25 to 1. Gamma correction controls the overall
brightness of an image. The higher the value, the darker the image will be. The
default value is 0.45.
Sharpness: Properties to bias the overall image sharpness can be adjusted to
soften or sharpen the image. Making the image crisper can produce higher
resolution images, but noise becomes apparent. The default is 0.
Saturation: Control the saturation (color level) in the video. Reducing the
"SATURATION" value de-saturates the colors. The default is 0.
4. Title
Display: Turns on/off the ID text display. The default is "OFF".
Title: String used to identify camera name. The title can be 0 to 8 characters. The
default is "CAMERA_1". Up to 66 characters can be used, both upper case and
lower case English alphabet, numbers "0" to "9", characters "+","-" and"_".
Operation step: Center button selects char position, and left/ right button selects
Position: Camera name display position. Five presets optional: UP-LEFT, UPCENTER, UP-RIGHT, DOWN-LEFT and DOWN-RIGHT.
5. Lens Select
Supports DC-drive auto iris lens (optional function). Make sure the "LENS SELECT"
setting in the OSD menu matches the actual lens you are using. F<1.2 name brand
DC-drive lens is recommended. The default is "MANUAL".
GAIN: Increasing the gain increases responsiveness and sensitivity.
Note: If the gain is too high, the iris will exhibit under-damped behavior under some
transient lighting conditions. If the gain is too low, the image may oscillate between
brightness and darkness. The default is 120.
AI Threshold: Adjusts the threshold at which the automatic iris becomes active. If
the gain is higher than the threshold, electronic shutter works, lower than the
threshold, auto iris works. The default is -18.
6. Sync
Determines the type of synchronization will be used. Use line synchronization to
eliminate the vertical roll that occurs when multiple cameras are connected to the
same switching device. Line synchronization locks each camera to the same frame
rate. Provides support for both internal synchronization and line lock
synchronization. The default is "INT" mode.
Line lock (L.L): The video timing of line lock is locked to AC line input. The output
video can be varied with respect to the incoming line frequency reference through
360° by adjusting vertical phase. The range of the phase is 0 to 624. The default is
519. (optional function)
Note: It is normal that the image will flicker a while when
power on with AC source in Line Lock mode.
1. White Balance
White balance control the color reproduction in different lighting conditions. There
are five white balance modes:
Auto Tracking White Balance (ATW)
The ATW mode continuously monitors color temperature of the scene and adjusts
the white balance of the video image automatically. In ATW mode, the color
temperature is adjusted from a minimum of 2000 Kelvin to a maximum of 11,000
Kelvin. It is useful when scene’s lighting condition changes.
ATW Limit
The ATW Limit mode performs like ATW mode, but limits the range of auto tracking
when the calculated color temperature goes below 2800 Kelvin or above 7500
Kelvin. This can help the color temperature to remain bounded, preventing the
camera from overcompensating for scenes that have extremely high or low color
Auto White Balance (AWB)
In AWB mode, white balance changes only on command. If you select this function,
a confirm information would be shown:
Aim the camera at a white object, (like white wall, white
paper etc.) and select the "SAVE" item. The current color
temperature value will be written to ROM and preserved
until the user signaled to change.
ATW Desat
The ATW Desat. mode performs like ATW mode, but de-saturation begins when the
calculated color temperature goes below 2800 Kelvin or above 7500 Kelvin (for
sodium lighting).
The manual mode allow the user to specify red/blue color
composition of the image. Use the red/blue slider to either
increase or decrease the red/blue elements in the camera
image. Move the slider from -20 to 20.
2. AE Preferences (Auto Exposure Preferecne)
Auto Exposure Preference Optimizes exposure when high dynamic range lighting is
Highlight: Optimizes scene for highlights. In highlight mode, the image is adjust for
correct brightness based on the highlights of the picture. Dark parts of the image
may become very dark.
Shadow: Optimizes scene for shadows. In shadow mode, dark parts of the image
are adjusted for correct brightness; bright scenes of the image may be overdriven or
over exposed.
3. Gain Setup
The image light levels is in relation to the gain setup. Higher gain value indicates
brighter image. Three Preference can be chose: LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH, or, set
the gain properties manually.
Bias: this value can decrease the gain when it's negative or
increase the gain when it's positive.
Limit: Set the maximum value of the gain. The practical gain
value will not exceed the set limit value.
4. Low Light
Set the mode of the camera when in low light conditions. Provide supports for both
slow shutter mode and gain mode.
GAIN: Increases the image gain as light decreases up to the maximum set "LIMIT"
in the "GAIN SETUP" submenu. The dynamic range is not decreased as gain
increases. Gain amplifies both the signal and picture noise. The higher the gain the
higher noise. In gain mode, You do not suffer from blurred motion as compared to
slow shutter mode.
SLOW SHUTTER: the camera uses a combination of applied gain and slow shutter
to compensate for decreased light levels. If you select the "SLOW SHUTTER"
mode, shutter speed limit can be set. Shutter speed limits: X2, X4, X8, X16, X32
optional. The default is X2.
NOTE: X2 means the shutter speed is normal divided by
2. For example: normal value of the shutter speed is 1/50,
X2 will be 1/25. In low light condition, leaving the shutter
open longer can optimize image, but with motion the
image can be blurred.
1. Zone Exposure
The camera uses meter zones to implement foreground meter and background
meter. Many installations include multiple light sources or unusual colors and lights.
Meter zones let you identify a light or color reference section in the camera view.
The camera can adjust the entire video image based on the "metered" zone.
Meter Mode
Selects either the foreground mode or the background mode for metering exposure,
white balance and dynamic range. In foreground mode, the camera analyzes both
brightness and color elements in the meter zone. Then it adjusts these elements
throughout the entire image. In background mode, the camera analyzes the light
levels in the meter zone. Then it enhances the detail for backlight objects that would
otherwise appear as silhouettes.
F.G Presets (Foreground Presets)
Provides four default zones: FULL SCREEN/MOST SCREEN/CENTER
SPOT/LOWER 1/3. The camera can adjust the entire video image based on the
"metered" zone.
F.Ground Zones/B.Ground Zones: Adjustable four foreground/ background zones,
select this item will enter "FOREGROUND ZONES"/"BACKGROUND ZONES"
Enable Zones: Select the meter zone. Zone 1 to zone 4 optional.
Adjust Zone 1/2/3/4: adjust the area of zone 1/2/3/4. Zone Adjustment Methods:
White box: Press up/down/left/right button to move the zone
Green box: Press up/down/left/right button to increase the zone
Red box: Press up/down/left/right button to decrease the zone
Center key:

"ADJUST ZONE 4.." the white box can be invisible because zone 4 is preset
By default as the full area of sensor and the white box is out of screen. Press
the centre button twice to change the white box to red box and shrink the area
until visible.
2. Privacy Mask Setup
Privacy mask is useful because it can shield the areas
which are unnecessary or prohibit to be watch. The
application will support up to 12 masks and has 3 mask
color options (white, black, or red). 12 masks can be
turned on or off respectively. Select “ON..” and enter the
zone adjustment pages to edit the mask area.
Mask adjustment methods:
