Electrical shock hazard
z Never attempt to connect the unit to any power network other
than the one for which it was intended.
z Use only the mains lead supplied.
z Do not open the housing.
z Disconnect the power supply unit from the mains power supply
and from all other devices if a fault occurs.
z Only install the power supply and the server in a dry place pro-
tected from wheather.
z If you are uncertain about the safe operation of the unit, shut it
down immediately and secure it to prevent any unauthorised
start-up. Safe operation is no longer possible, for example,
– if damage is visible to the unit or the cables,
– if the unit no longer operates correctly,
– if the server has been exposed to rain or moisture,
– if objects have penetrated inside the unit,
– after long storage under improper conditions or
– after heavy demands during transport.
Have the system checked by VCS in such cases.

Functional overview
Network
video server
The VideoJet 10 ISDN is a network video server. Its primary function is to decode and encode video, audio and control data for
transmission over an IP network. Using the ISDN interface data
transfer over corresponding telephone networks is possible. Via the
CompactFlash interface the device can be integrated seamlessly
into any wireless LAN using a corresponding card. Because it uses
existing networks, rapid and simple integration into CCTV installations via local networks can be achieved.
Two units, i.e. a VideoJet 10 ISDN as transmitter and a VideoJet 10
ISDN as receiver, can form a stand alone system for data transfer
without a PC. The system can be extended to include additional
transmitters and receivers so that video images from one transmitter can be simultaneously received on a number of receivers.
10
VideoJet 10 ISDN
Product Description
Receiver
VCS MPEG-4 hardware receiver or a computer with installed decoding software, e.g. VIDOS from VCS or with the installed web
browser Microsoft Internet Explorer, can be used as a receiver.
Video encoding
The VideoJet 10 ISDN operates with the video compression standard MPEG-4. Thanks to efficient encoding, the data bit rate
remains low even with high image quality and, in addition, can be
matched into the local environment within wide limits.
Dual Encoding
With Dual Encoding the incoming datastream can be encoded with
the help of two different profiles simultaneously which can be set
individually. Thus two datastreams are created suiting different
needs, e.g. one for local recording and one for transmission over
ISDN.
Multicast
In suitably configured networks, simultaneous transmission in real
time to a number of receivers is possible using the Multicast function. A requirement here is the implementation of the UDP and
IGMP protocols on the network.
Remote control
For the remote control of external equipment, e.g. remote pan and
tilt heads or motorized zoom lenses, the control data is transmitted
via the bidirectional serial interface of the VideoJet 10 ISDN. This
interface is also available for the transmission of transparent data.
Configuration
Configuration of the VideoJet 10 ISDN can be carried out using a
browser via the local network (Intranet) or from the Internet.
Similarly, firmware updates and rapid loading of equipment configurations are also possible.
Recording/
playback
You can save live pictures recorded by the unit as files on the hard
disk of your computer. The video pictures are stored in MPEG format and can, for example, be replayed with the VCS MPEG Player
included in the delivery. All recordings can be stored locally, too,
using a CompactFlash-card or a MicroDrive.

Snapshots
Individual video frames (snapshots) can be called up in JPEG format by the VideoJet 10 ISDN, stored on the computer hard drive or
can be displayed in a separate browser window.
Back-up
Can be accomplished from either the livepage or directly from the
Media-Replay mode through a simple mouse click.

ISDN basics
ISDN means Integrated Digital Services Network and describes a
telecommunications service which is supported worldwide.
Data is forwarded over the existing lines as before, not, however, in
the form of continuously varying analog signals, but digitally. Digital
video from your VideoJet 10 ISDN does not have to be converted
to the analog medium by a modem.
To transmit data over ISDN, most frequently, the so-called PPP protocol is used, (Point-to-Point Protocol).
Every ISDN basic connection (S0 connection) consists of three
channels:
z 2 B-channels
z 1 D-channel
B-channel channel bundling
Data transmission takes place over the B-channels (voice, text,
data). Each B-channel has a data transmission rate of 64 kBit/s.
Since you have two B-channels, you can make telephone calls
simultaneously from two different telephones.
The VideoJet 10 ISDN can combine both B-channels in order to
transmit data to just one opposite terminal using the collective
capacity of both B-channels. Naturally, you must pay for the use of
both channels; your data transmission, however, takes half the time
it would need using just one channel.
D-channel
The D-channel transfers all control data regarding the respective
ISDN connection with a data transmission rate of 16 kBit/s. Such
information includes, e. g. the identification of the caller (Calling
VideoJet 10 ISDN
17
ISDN-configuration with web browser
Party’s Number) and the party called (Called Party’s Number) by
the dial numbers.
Dial numbers MSN
Normally, you receive three dial numbers with an ISDN basic connection (in Germany), the so-called MSNs (Multiple Subscriber
Number). The MSN is a complete telephone number without a prefix. If three dial numbers are not enough for you, you can usually
request more MSNs from your telephone provider.
Configuration page: Alarm connections
Options are provided to specify the behavior of the VideoJet 10
ISDN in the event of an alarm. The VideoJet 10 ISDN, for example,
can establish a connection to a predefined telephone number or IP
address (VideoJet 10 ISDN receiver or PC with receiver software)
automatically.

ISDN MSN number
When using ISDN connections the device must be assigned an
MSN (Multi Subscript Number). This number is the correct telephone number of the device, i.e. only incoming calls addressing this
number will be answered by the device.
With the default setting 0 all incoming calls will be answered by the
device.
PPP server IP address
Enter here the IP address for PPP connections over ISDN. The
entered IP address is the address assigned to the VideoJet 10
ISDN when the connection is established. The following IP address
is assigned to the remote device. In this example (see screenshot)
for any PPP ISDN connection 192.168.0.10 is the IP address of the
VideoJet 10 ISDN and 192.168.0.11 is the one for the remote
device.

Hardware connections
between VideoJet units
A VideoJet 10 ISDN with connected camera as a transmitter and a
VideoJet 10 ISDN with connected monitor as a receiver can be
linked together simply over an ISDN network or a Wireless LAN. It
is thus possible to link large distances with little installation or
cabling effort.
Installation
With the appropriate configuration the VideoJet 10 ISDN units can
automatically establish a connection with each other. This assumes
that, as a minimum, they are linked into a closed network. To install
the units proceed as follows:
)
Connect the units into the closed network using Ethernet cables,
ISDN connections or a Wireless LAN card.
)
Connect power to the units.
Note
Make sure the units are configured for the characteristics of the network environment and that the transmitting unit, under the parameter Dial up phone number, is set for the telephone number of the
receiver (see page 20).
Connection setup
It is possible to configure the connection using a Terminal software
or by appropriate configuration via the alarm input. After a brief
pause, the live image from the camera will be displayed on the connected monitor.
Note
It is only possible to establish the connection using the alarm input
if the settings on the configuration page Alarm connections are
set properly (see page 18).

Operation
Operation with Software-Decoder
The video server VideoJet 10 ISDN in association with the program
VIDOS comprises a powerful systems solution.
VIDOS is a program for the operation, control and administration of
CCTV installations (e.g. surveillance systems) at remote locations.
It runs under the Windows operating system. It primarily provides
decoding of video, audio and control data received from a remote
transmitter.
During operation of a VideoJet 10 ISDN with VIDOS, a multiplicity
of
operating and configuration options are offered. For details, see the
documentation provided with the software.
