High throughput is achieved by equipping the camera port and
the client PC port individually. It brings stable image reception
using up to 64 cameras and up to 16 client PCs (depending on
the network environment).
Recording
Images from up to 64 cameras can be recorded on hard disk
drives in a single recorder. Recording images in JPEG,
M-JPEG and MPEG-4 format are available.
The RAID function is available as the HDD fault-tolerance
system.
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.

● How the event action is taken
About events
In the recorder, an "event" is defined as a phenomenon which
triggers a specific action (event action) in the recorder.
The recorder regards the reception of a terminal alarm, a command alarm, and a site alarm as an "event".
For example, when the recorder receives a site alarm issued by
a camera, the recorder regards it as an event occurrence.
About the event action
When an event occurs, the recorder will take a specified event
action.
The following actions will be taken as the event actions
according to the settings.
• Record images/audio
• Record logs
• Notify of an event occurrence (by mail, LED, buzzer, image
transmission to a FTP server, etc.)

Image of event/alarm action
The recorder will take an event action when the following
events occur.
Terminal alarm: When a signal from an external alarm device
such as a door sensor is supplied to the alarm input terminal (ALARM connector or ALARM/CONTROL connector at
the rear of the recorder), it will be regarded as a terminal
alarm.
Command alarm: When receiving a command from a PC via a
network, it will be regarded as a command alarm.
Site alarm: When receiving a Panasonic alarm protocol from a
network camera, it will be regarded as a site alarm.
The following are the event actions and their descriptions.
• Start recording
Recording will start according to the settings configured on
the setup menu such as the recording rate, the recording
duration, etc. Images recorded before an event occurrence
can be associated with images recorded by the corresponding event recording so that images recorded at the
event occurrence can be played as if the recording started
before the event occurrence. (Pre-event recording)
• Display the event notification window
A pop-up window that notifies of an event occurrence will
be displayed.
• Blink the alarm indicator
The alarm indicator on the front panel will start blinking.
• Sound the buzzer
The buzzer will start sounding for the duration set in

The camera registered in advance will move to the preset
position according to the settings.
• Send a mail that notifies of an event occurrence
A mail that notifies of the event occurrence with the time
and date of the event occurrence will be sent. (Alarm mail)
It is possible to attach an image to the alarm mail. (Alarm
image)
Up to 4 destination addresses for the alarm mail can be
registered.
• Output signals from the ALARM/CONTROL connector at
the rear of the recorder. (Alarm output)
When an event occurs, a signal will be output from the
ALARM/CONTROL connector at the rear of the recorder to
sound an external alarm buzzer, etc.
• Save a log
A log that contains the event type and the time and date of
the event occurrence will be saved. (Event log)
• Send recorded images to an FTP server at an event occurrence
When an event occurs, recorded images will continue
transmitting to an FTP server automatically for the set
duration from the time when the event occurred.
• Notify a PC of an event or an error occurrence using the
Panasonic alarm protocol
When an event or an error occurs, information about the
event/ error will automatically be notified to the registered
PC according to the "Panasonic alarm protocol" setting. To

depending on how to connect them. Before starting the connections, check the required devices and cables for your environment.
■ Connection between cameras and PCs
When connecting the recorder and PCs through a hub, use a LAN cable (straight) to connect between the recorder and a hub.
Cameras should also be connected through a hub using LAN cables (straight). 1-port operation and 2-port operation are available for
the connection of the PCs and the cameras.
Important:
• Be sure to use a hub to connect the recorder and a PC with a straight LAN cable.
• Do not connect directly between the recorder and a PC with a cross LAN cable. Otherwise, some PCs may have trouble in communicating securely, displaying images, or playing recorded images.
