User Manual of HD-TVI Speed Dome

Chapter 1 Overview

1.1 Description

Integrated with the built-in pan/tilt unit, the E series speed dome features highly sensitive response and reliable performance. The speed dome can be adopted in various surveillance fields with its full-integral functions and features, such as corridor, large venue, meeting room, station, neighborhoods, etc.

1.2 Functions

The functions vary according to the different models of the speed dome.

Coaxial Control

The speed dome with a specified DVR or controller can be sent the control signals via coaxial cable

(BNC cable).

High-Definition Output

The resolution of the output image can be up to 1080P.

Limits

The dome can be programmed to move within the limits(left/right, up/down).

Self-adaptive Protocol

While using RS485 control, the speed dome is compatible with PELCO-D, PELCO-P and PRIVATE-Code, etc., and is capable of being self-adaptive to these protocols without selecting protocol by DIP switch settings. While using coaxial control, the speed dome is self-adaptive to PELCO-D and

PRIVATE-Code protocols.

Keyboard Control

The pan/tilt movement and zoom actions of dome can be controlled by the control keyboard, DVR, matrix, etc.

Scan Modes

The dome provides 5 scan modes: auto scan, tilt scan, and panorama scan.

Preset Freezing

This feature freezes the scene on the monitor when the dome is moving to a preset. This allows for smooth transition from one preset scene to another. It also guarantees that masked area will not be revealed when the dome is moving to a preset.

Presets

A preset is a predefined image position. When the preset is called, the dome will automatically move to the defined position. The presets can be added, modified, deleted and called.

Label Display

The on-screen label of the preset title, PT display, zoom, and time can be displayed on the monitor.

Auto Flips

2

User Manual of HD-TVI Speed Dome

In manual tracking mode, when a target object goes directly beneath the dome, the video will automatically flips 180 degrees in horizontal direction to maintain continuity of tracking. This function can also be realized by auto mirror image depending on different camera models.

Privacy Mask

This function allows you to block or mask certain area of a scene, for preventing the personal privacy from recording or live viewing. A masked area will move with pan and tilt functions and automatically adjust in size as the lens zooms telephoto and wide.

3D Positioning

In the client software, use the left key of mouse to click on the desired position in the video image and drag a rectangle area in the lower right direction, then the dome system will move the position to the center and allow the rectangle area to zoom in. Use the left key of mouse to drag a rectangle area in the upper left direction to move the position to the center and allow the rectangle area to zoom out.

Proportional Pan/Tilt

Proportional pan/tilt automatically reduces or increases the pan and tilt speeds according to the amount of zoom. At telephoto zoom settings, the pan and tilt speeds will be slower than at wide zoom settings. This keeps the image from moving too fast on the live view image when there is a large amount of zoom.

Auto Focus

The auto focus enables the camera to focus automatically to maintain clear video images.

Day/Night Auto Switch

The speed domes deliver color images during the day. And as light diminishes at night, the speed domes switch to night mode and deliver black and white images with high quality.

Slow Shutter

In slow shutter mode, the shutter speed will automatically slowdown in low illumination conditions to maintain clear video images by extending the exposure time. The feature can be enabled or disabled.

Backlight Compensation (BLC)

If you focus on an object against strong backlight, the object will be too dark to be seen clearly. The

BLC (Backlight Compensation) function can compensate light to the object in the front to make it clear, but this causes the over-exposure of the background where the light is strong.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

The wide dynamic range (WDR) function helps the camera provide clear images even under back light circumstances. When there are both very bright and very dark areas simultaneously in the field of view, WDR balances the brightness level of the whole image and provide clear images with details.

White Balance (WB)

White balance can remove the unrealistic color casts. White balance is the white rendition function of the camera to adjust the color temperature according to the environment automatically.

Patrol

A patrol is a memorized series of pre-defined preset function. The scanning speed between two presets and the dwell time at the preset are programmable.

Pattern

A pattern is a memorized series of pan, tilt, zoom, and preset functions. By default the focus and iris

3

User Manual of HD-TVI Speed Dome are in auto status during the pattern is being memorized.

Power Off Memory

The dome supports the power off memory capability with the predefined resume time. It allows the dome to resume its previous position after power is restored.

Time Task

A time task is a preconfigured action that can be performed automatically at a specific date and time. The programmable actions include: pan scan, patrol 1-8, pattern 1-4, preset 1-8, panorama scan, tilt scan, day, night, and none.

Park Action

This feature allows the dome to start a predefined action automatically after a period of inactivity.

MAIN MENUS > DOME SETTINGS > ALARM INPUT

2. Configure the interval of the alarm sequence.

When more than one alarm of the same priority occurs at the same time, the speed dome will respond to one alarm first and then respond to the next one after the user-defined interval. You can set the on SEQUENCE submenu from 1 to 200 seconds.

3. Configure the alarm rest delay.

If there’s a linkage action has already been triggered by an alarm input, the speed dome will only respond to the input from the same channel again after the user-defined reset delay time.

This is the rest time that the speed dome considers an alarm to be active when it’s physically cleared. You can set the DELAY TIME from 0 to 300 seconds.

4. Resume the dome activity.

You can set ALARM RESUME to ON to enable the speed dome to resume its previous activity after the triggered actions finished.

 If the speed dome is moving when a linkage action is triggered, it will stop at the current position and resume from this position after the linkage action finishes.

 The speed dome can be configured to resume the PTZ positions, focus and iris value.

Appendix

Appendix 1 Lightning & Surge Protection

This product adopts TVS plate lightning protection technology to avoid damage caused by pulse signal that is below 3000W, like instantaneous lighting stroke, surging, etc. According to the actual outdoor situation, necessary protection measures must be taken, besides ensuring the electrical safety.

 The distance between signal transmission wires and High-voltage equipment or high-voltage cable is at least 50m.

 Outdoor wiring should better be routed under eaves as much as possible.

 In the open field, wiring should be buried underground in sealed steel pipe, and the steel-pipe should be one-point grounding. Overhead routing method is forbidden.

 In strong thunderstorm area or high induction voltage areas (such as high-voltage transformer substation), high power lightning protection apparatus and lightning conductor are necessary to be added.

 The design of lightning protection and grounding of the outdoor devices and cables should be considered together with the lightning protection demand of buildings. It also must conform to the related national standards and industrial standards.

 The system should be equipotential grounded. The grounding equipment must conform to the demands of system anti-jamming and electrical safety both and it must not appear short circuit or mixed circuit with the zero conductor of strong grid. When the system is grounded alone, the resistance should be no more than 4Ω. The sectional area of the grounding cable should be no less than 25mm2. For grounding instructions, please refer to the Installation Manual of Speed

Dome.

Appendix 2 RS485 Bus Connection

 General Property of RS485 Bus

According to RS485 industry bus standard, RS485 is a half-duplex communication bus which has

120Ω characteristic impendence, the maximum load ability is 32 payloads (including controller device and controlled device).

 RS485 Bus Transmission Distance

When using 0.56mm (24AWG) twisted-pair line, according to different baudrate, the maximum transmission distance theory table is shown as below:

Table A-1 Max. Distance of RS485 Transmission

Baudrate Max Distance

2400BPS 1800m

4800BPS 1200m

9600BPS 800m

The transmission distance will be decreased if we use the thinner cable, or use this product under the strong electromagnetic interference situation, or there are lots of devices are added to the bus; on the contrary, the transmission distance will be increased.

 Connection Methods

RS485 industry bus standard require daisy-chain connection method between any devices, both sides have to connect a 120Ω terminal resistance (show as Diagram 1), the simplified connection method is shown as diagram 2, but the distance of “D” should not be too long.

 Problems in the Practical Application

Normally, users adopt star-shape connection method in construction, under this situation, the terminal resistors must be connected between two farthest devices (as Figure 4, 1# and 15#), but this connection method is not satisfy the requirement of the RS485 industry standard so that it will lead to some problems such as signal reflection, anti-jamming ability decline when the devices are faraway. At this time, the dome will be uncontrollable, or self-running, etc.
