Two Search Functions
With the Switching Tab (1) of the NSR-1200/1100/1050H, you can
select either Normal Search or Object Search.
• Normal Search
You can search for specific images on the NSR-1200/1100/1050H,
by setting search conditions such as the camera name, date,
time, and the type of recording (manual/schedule/alarm/event).
• Object Search
You can search for specific images on the NSR-1200/1100/1050H,
in the recorded video using intelligent functions. There are two
types of search – Post VMD (Video Motion Detection), and VMF
(Video Motion Filter). With Post VMD, you can search for images
in the recorded video with search conditions that are set after
the recording, such as specific object movements. (see below
1) With VMF, you can search for images in the recorded video
using DEPA (Distributed Enhanced Processing Architecture)
system features. With a VMF search, you should record
metadata with DEPA-enabled cameras during the video
recording. For example, you can count the number of people
who passed a line that is set on the screen. (see below 2)
(Please refer to “What is DEPA?”)

What is DEPA Architecture?
Concept of DEPA Architecture
In conventional video analytic systems, the camera only
sends video images to recorders, and video image
analysis is processed solely on the recorder side.
In Sony’s DEPA system, the DEPA-enabled camera sends to
the DEPA-enabled recorder not only video images but
also related metadata such as the camera ID, date/time,
and information about the shot object (size and position).
The recorder checks this metadata with a search filter
called a VMF (Video Motion Filter), to send an alarm
signal when the metadata matches a preset condition of
the VMF. Since the partial image processing is done on
the camera side, the system can be configured in a much
simpler manner, and can be expanded more easily.
Search Results by Timeline or List
Timeline Mode
The search result on the NSR-1200/1100/1050H is
displayed either by timeline or list (6). In a timeline
chart, search results are displayed in different
colors depending on the type of recording. You
can easily playback video just by clicking on a
specific part of the timeline, or on the list.
List Mode
Versatile Recording Functions
There are various recording functions on the NSR-1200/1100/1050H:
Manual Recording
Manual Recording is started manually anytime the operator wants.
Schedule Recording
Schedule Recording is started based on a set schedule.
Schedule Recording with Alarm Marking
While using Schedule Recording, the time when the alarm is
detected can be marked in the timeline. This function enables
images to be searched quickly.
Alarm/Event Recording
There are two types of alarm-triggered recording – Alarm and
Event (i.e., Activity) Recording. While it is important to initiate
recordings based on video motion detection or alarm signal input,
it is also helpful if the user can define what is considered an alarm.
For example, a camera may be looking at an area where there
are people moving about during office hours, but the recording of
such motion should not be considered a true alarm; it is rather a
normal event or activity. However, such motion out of office hours
should be considered a true alarm, and an action or alert needs
to be initiated. The former is performed by Event Recording and
the latter by Alarm Recording. The date/time of Alarm Recording is
listed in an Alarm List in the main GUI (but this does not occur with
Event Recording). Having this capability accomplishes two things
– it saves on storage (with motion/alarm recording only), and
reduces seek times when searching Alarms and Events.
Other Key Features
• Privacy Zone Masking
MPEG4/JPEG Dual Stream
Connected with Sony’s major network
the NSR-1200/
1100/1050H can accept both JPEG and MPEG4 from cameras at
the same time. With a limited storage capacity, for example, you
can monitor live video via MPEG4 at frame rates as high as 30 fps,
and record video via JPEG at frame rates as low as 1 fps.
S NC-RX570/RX550/RX530, SNC-RZ50, SNC-DF85/DF80/DF50, SNC-DM160/DM110,
SNC-CS50/CS20, SNC-CM120, and later models.
Light Funnel Control for Higher Sensitivity
Light Funnel is a technology in Sony’s megapixel network cameras
to provide high sensitivity. By combining the information of four
pixels and handling them as a single pixel, this type of camera
provides sensitivity four times higher than conventional cameras.
With the NSR-1200/1100/1050H, there is a menu to control the
Light Funnel settings of applicable cameras; this simplifies control.
(Please note that when Light Funnel technology is applied to a
1280 x 960 image, its size becomes 640 x 480.)
• Data Export to CD-R, DVD-R, USB Media, etc
Flexible User Management Setting
All access to the NSR-1200/1100/1050H is managed by user
authorization, which is set by the system administrator.
The administrator can simply provide each user with a permission
level selected from the five ready-made levels of operational
permission, or set the accessibility in a more customized way. The
accessible cameras for each user can be set for each camera, or
for each NSR-1200/1100/1050H server. When the system is
configured with more than one NSR-1200/1100/1050H server, all
user information is shared throughout the whole system.
