Preface
The digital disk recorders WJ-HD616K, WJ-HD716K are designed for use within a surveillance system, and record images from
up to 16 cameras on the hard disk drives.
This product supports HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) standard which allows displaying playback/live images with
superior quality when connecting to a high-definition monitor using an optional HDMI cable.
It is possible to operate cameras from this product to display images from multiple cameras or switch cameras from which images are to be displayed, etc.
* No hard disk drive is supplied with this recorder. For purchasing the hard disk drive, contact your dealer.
Features
Easy operation using a PC mouse
It is possible to operate this product while monitoring a screen when directly connecting a PC mouse (commercially available) to
this product.
Image display on a High-definition monitor
It is possible to display recorded images or live images from cameras on a high-definition monitor (1 920 x 1 080).
Easy hard disk drive replacement
It is possible to install/remove hard disk drives easily into/from the recorder by opening the front cover to access the HDD slots.
When 2 or more hard disk drives are installed, it is possible to replace the hard disk drives without stopping the current recording.
Locally procured hard disk drives are to be encased in optional HDD canisters (WJ-HDU40K). At the time of shipment from the
factory, 4 canisters have been already installed in the recorder. Contact your dealer for purchasing additional HDD canisters and
hard disk drives.
HDD fault-tolerance system using the RAID function
The RAID function is available as the HDD fault-tolerance system when the optional RAID board (WJ-HD601) is installed.
In addition to the RAID 5 mode that recovers data when a single hard disk drive becomes faulty, there is RAID 6 mode that can
recover data even if 2 hard disk drives become faulty. Operation in the RAID mode is one of the solutions as the HDD fault-tolerance system that prevents data loss when handling a large amount of data on a large amount of storage.
Coordination with SD5 cameras
The following functions are available when connecting to Panasonic SD5 cameras using coaxial cables.
Refer to the operating instructions of the camera for further information about SD5 cameras.
• Alarm recording/Search and play
When the camera issued an alarm (arisen by detection of an intruder or appearance/disappearance of object), the alarm
recording will start.
Images recorded by the alarm recording can be searched and played by designating search conditions such as the alarm
type.
• i-VMD area setting
The settings of the VMD areas created from the camera and the setting of the depth compensation configured from the camera can be edited on the recorder motion detection will become more sensitive using the depth compensation. Refer to the
operating instructions of cameras for further information about the i-VMD function.
• Save and load of the setup data of the camera
The settings of the camera (setup data) can be saved on the recorder and the saved setup data can be loaded to the camera.
It is convenient when a camera goes out of order and required to be exchanged since a new camera can be used with the
same settings as it was.

User/Host management
It is necessary to register users who operates the recorder and hosts (PC) that accesses the recorder via a network such as a
LAN. Up to 32 users and up to 8 hosts can be registered.
The following information can be registered as user information and host information.
Item
Description
Remarks
User name
User name is to be registered to log in to the recorder.
It will be required to log in to the recorder.
This setting item can be configured only in
the user registration.
IP address
IP address of a PC is to be registered to access the
recorder. When "On" is set for "Host registration", only
PCs with the registered IP addresses can access the
recorder.
This setting item can be configured only in
the host registration.
Password
Password is to be registered to log in to the recorder
together with the user name. It will be required to log in
to the recorder.
This setting item can be configured only in
the user registration.
Level
Level indicates availability of the functions for users.
Refer to page 112 for the operable functions for each
level.
Priority level
Priority level indicates the operational priority. When
multiple users/hosts tried to operate the same, only a
user/host with a higher priority can operate.
Default screen
Camera channels from which live images are to be
displayed on Monitor 1, Monitor 2 and the PC monitor
just after the login can be determined.
Camera partitioning
Operational range of each camera channel for users/
hosts can be determined.
In the following cases, the operational right
will be given to a user/host with a higher
priority.
• When another user tried to log in while
the other user is already being logged
in.
• When another user tried to control a
camera that is being controlled by the
other user
Users and hosts will be handled differently depending on how to access the recorder (between when the recorder is directly
operated and when the recorder is operated via a network).
When operating the recorder directly
Operate the recorder while monitoring the monitor connected to the recorder. There are 3 ways of how to operate the recorder
directly.
• Operate using the buttons on the front cover of the recorder.
• Operate using a mouse connected to the front cover of the recorder.
• Operate from a PS·Data compatible system controller.
Note:
• When controlling a camera connected to a coaxial communication unit from a system controller compatible with PS·Data, the
priority level configured on the recorder will not be applied since it is controlled directly from the system controller. (The priority
will be given to the latest operation.)
It is impossible to log in to the recorder from the front cover (using the buttons or the mouse) and from the system controller at
the same time (except logging in using the same user name).It is impossible to log in to the recorder regardless of the priority
level even if a user tried to log in when another user is already logged in.
24
Note:
• When operating from a system controller compatible with PS·Data, log in to the recorder automatically as the user registered
in "PSD user" on the "Basic" tab under "User mng.".
• When no operation is made for approx.2 minutes after logging in from a system controller compatible with PS·Data, the PSD
user will automatically be logged out.
• When trying to log in as the same user name used by a user who is already logged in, both users will be authorized to log in
regardless of the priority level.
When operating from a PC via a network
Operation of the recorder can be made using a PC via a network. Up to 8 hosts (PCs) can access the recorder concurrently.
When trying to log in to the recorder even though 8 hosts (PCs) are already accessing the recorder, the host (PC) with the lowest
priority will forcibly be logged out.
When accessing the recorder from a PC via a network, the authentication method is different depending on the "User authentication" and "Host authentication" settings of the "Basic" tab under "User mng.".

1U (44 mm {1-23/32"}) above and below the recorder
for ventilation.
• Do not block the ventilation openings or slots to prevent
the recorder from overheating.
Connections
Connection of cameras
Up to 16 cameras (system cameras or combination cameras) can be connected to the video input connector 1-16.
Important:
• When using with a Panasonic's matrix switcher or a coaxial communication unit, make sure that the loop-through output
connection (of each video input) to the recorder are correctly made. When a monitor output or a spot output is connected to
the video input connector of the recorder, noise may be produced upon switching camera channels or images of few seconds before switching camera channels may be displayed/recorded. When a monitor output or a spot output is connected to
the video input connector of the recorder, noise may be produced upon switching camera channels or images of few seconds before switching camera channels may be displayed/recorded.
• Connect the power plug of the recorder at the very end of connections.
• When connecting combination cameras to the WJ-HD616K, connect them to the video input connector 1 - 8 (coaxial connection compatible).
• It is impossible to connect a VCR to the video input connector.

Manage hard disk drives
About hard disk drives
Images from cameras will be recorded on the HDD unit(s) in the recorder.
This recorder manages the hard disk drives by dividing them virtually into the following recording areas.
• Normal recording area:
Recording area used when an event does not occur (Manual recording, schedule recording)
• Event recording area:
Recording area used when an event occurs (Post-event recording, emergency recording).
• Pre-event recording area:
Recording area used to record images before an event occurs
It is possible to assign only one recording area to a hard disk drive.
The settings of each recording area can be configured on the disk configuration page. (☞ Page 127)
Remaining capacities of each recording area can be checked on the disk configuration page or the "Maintenance" page - the
"Disk information" tab. (☞ Page 119)
About the RAID 5/RAID 6 mode
The RAID 5/RAID 6 mode becomes available when optional RAID boards (WJ-HDB601) are installed in the recorder and extension units.
When the RAID5/RAID mode is applied, 3 or more hard disk drives are regarded logically as a single drive. Even if a trouble
occurs in one of the hard disk drives, the data on the faulty HDD can be recovered based on the error correction data automatically recorded on the other drives.
The RAID 5 mode has an error correction data that recovers data when a single hard disk drive becomes faulty. The RAID 6
mode has two error correction data that recovers data from other disk drives when two drives become faulty at the same time.
• Logical disk capacity in the RAID 5 mode
Logical disk capacity = Capacity of the smallest hard disk drive among the unit x (Total number of the hard disk drives in the
recorder 1)
• Logical disk capacity in the RAID 6 mode
Logical disk capacity = Capacity of the smallest hard disk drive among the unit x (Total number of the hard disk drives in the
recorder 2)
* Depending on the models of hard disk drives installed in the recorder, the capacity may be a few percent smaller.
Important:
• To enable the RAID 5 mode, it is necessary to install 3 or more hard disk drives in the recorder. To enable the RAID 6 mode, it
is necessary to install 4 or more hard disk drives in the recorder.
• When an optional RAID board (WJ-HDB601) is not installed in the recorder, it is impossible to enable the RAID 5/RAID 6
mode using the recorder alone.
• The RAID 5/RAID 6 mode is determined using the [RAID] switch behind the front cover of the recorder. (☞ Page 20)
• Refer to the operating instructions of extension units for further information about how to determine the RAID 5/RAID 6
mode.
Determine the operation mode
The RAID 5/RAID 6 mode is determined using the [RAID] switch (☞ page 20) behind the front cover of the recorder.
Refer to page 54 for how to determine the operation mode.
