ZOOM LIMIT
Set the user-defined limitation of the zoom amount. Zoom amount =
Optical zoom× Digital zoom.
If you set the zoom limit to its minimum value (22), digital zoom is
disabled and optical zoom is at maximum value. If you set a lower
zoom limit, digital zoom is enabled.
ZOOM SPEED
Define the speed at which the lens changes from wide to the optical
zoom.
SLOW SHUTTER
This extends the exposure time under low light conditions in order to
obtain a clearer image. It can be set from 0 to 5 and the higher the
value is, the longer the exposure time.
DAY/NIGHT
Set the value to AUTO, DAY or NIGHT.
AUTO: The PTZ dome automatically switches from Black and White
mode (NIGHT) and Color mode (DAY) depending on the light
conditions. This is default mode.
NIGHT (B/W): Switch the IR cut filter to Black and White mode to
increase the lens sensitivity in low light conditions
DAY (Color): Switch to Day mode in normal light conditions.
Note:
D/N LEVEL

Set the DAY/NIGHT values in this menu. Call up preset 39 to set
the IR cut filter mode to DAY mode and call up preset 40 to set it
to NIGHT mode.

The DAY/NIGHT values cannot be configured unless the IR
function is disabled.
This is the light level for auto D/N mode switch.
The IR cut filter switches between DAY and NIGHT mode when the
light conditions reach this user-defined D/N sensitivity level.
SHARPNESS
This function increases the image gain and sharpens the edges in the
image to enhance image details.
Set the sharpness level between 0 and 15.
BLC/WDR
Set the value as ON or OFF to enable or disable the functions.
EXP MODE
AUTO: Auto iris, auto shutter and auto gain. The PTZ dome
automatically adjusts the values depending on the light conditions.
This is default mode.
IRIS: User-defined iris value, auto shutter and auto gain. It is the irispriority mode. Define the iris value in the IRIS, SHUTTER and GAIN
menus (see below).
SHUTTER: User-defined shutter speed, auto iris and auto gain. It is
the shutter-priority mode. Define the shutter speed in the IRIS,
SHUTTER and GAIN menus (see below).
MANUAL: User-defined iris, gain and shutter. in the IRIS, SHUTTER
and GAIN menus (see below).
IRIS
It measures the amount of light entering to the lens. You can set the
iris value from 0 to 17 in response to the changing light conditions.
The EXP MODE needs to be changed to MANUAL before controlling
the Iris in the PTZ panel.
Note: Iris is fully closed at 0 and fully open at 17.
SHUTTER
The speed of the electronic shutter controls the amount of light
entering to the lens in a unit of time (a second). You can manually
configure the shutter speed for the PTZ dome. You can also enable a
slow shutter function for low light conditions.
The higher you set the SHUTTER value (a faster shutter speed), the
TruVision HD-TVI Series 4 PTZ Dome Camera Configuration Manual

lower the amount of light entering per second, and the darker the
image. Set the value to 1, 2, 4, 8, 15, 30, 50, 125, 180, 250, 500,
1000, 2000, 4000 or 10000.
Note: The value of X indicates that the shutter speed is 1/X second.
GAIN
Gain value: The gain value is the amplification degree of the original
image signal. Set the value between 0 and 15.
Gain limit: The higher gain value set, the more noise will appear in
the image. You can set the maximum gain value between 0 and 15 to
limit the gain range and control the noise in the image.
Note: Change DAY/NIGHT mode to DAY or NIGHT mode, and set
the EXP MODE as MANUAL before adjusting the gain value.
EXPOSURE COMP
Adjust this value to increase the brightness of the image.
Set the EXPOSURE COMP value between 0 and 14. Default value is
7.
WB MODE
Set the WHITE BALANCE MODE as AUTO, INDOOR, OUTDOOR,
SELFDEF (self-defined), ATW (auto-tracking) or HAUTO (half-auto).
AUTO: The dome automatically retains color balance according to
the current color temperature.
INDOOR, OUTDOOR: These two modes are for indoor use and
outdoor use respectively.
SELFDEF: Adjust the color temperature manually.
Note: In SELFDEF mode, you need to adjust the RED and BLUE
values manually.
ATW: In auto-tracking mode, white balance is continuously being
adjusted in real-time according to the color temperature of the scene
illumination.
HAUTO: Select this mode so that the viewed image automatically
retains color balance depending on the current color temperature.
RED
It is used to adjust the red value when choosing SELFDEF for
WHITE BALANCE and it can be set from 0 to 255.
BLUE
It is used to adjust the blue value when choosing SELFDEF for
WHITE BALANCE and it can be set from 0 to 255.
IMAGE FLIP
When enabled, the image is flipped diagonally along its central axis
to obtain a mirror reflection of the image.
FOCUS LIMIT
Set the minimum focus distance.
Configure the focus limit at a longer distance when the target is far
away to avoid the PTZ dome focusing on objects close to it, or
configure a shorter distance when the target is close to the PTZ
dome so it does not focus on further away objects.
Set FOCUS LIMIT to 1cm, 30cm, 1m, 3m, 5m or AUTO to make sure
that the PTZ dome focuses on the target.
Note: If you test the PTZ indoors the camera may not focus when
zooming at high ratio. Please adjust this parameter to a lower value.
2D DNR
ON: The larger the value, the less the noise there will be in low light
conditions.
OFF: Disable the function.
3D DNR
ON: The larger the value, the less the noise there will be in low light
conditions.
OFF: Disable the function.
MINI ZOOM LIMIT

CHROMA
SUPPRESS
ON: Suppress color noise to obtain clear and high-quality images in
low light conditions.
OFF: Disable the function.
SATURATION
Saturation indicates the brightness of the color. The higher the
saturation, the brighter the color.
CONTRAST
Contrast is the degree of difference between the darker and lighter
parts of the image.
SCENE MODE
Select the scene mode as INDOOR or OUTDOOR. The default
image settings change depending on the selected scene mode.
HLC
Use this highlight compensation function to compensate for areas
with strong spots of light in order to produce clearer images.
Set the value to brighten the darker area and weaken the highlight
area of the image. The larger the value selected, the stronger the
effect.
SHARPNESS
COMP
Set the value to automatically adjust the sharpness of the image to
get a clear image. The larger the value selected, the stronger the
effect.
GAIN LIMIT
The higher gain value you set, the more noise will appear in the
image. Set the maximum gain value between 0 and 15 to limit the
gain range and control the noise in the image.
DEFOG
Enable this function to improve an image’s visibility and clarity in
foggy weather.
INIT LENS
Enable this function to automatically initialize the lens to ensure
normal operation.
Motion Parameter
AUTO FLIP
In manual tracking mode, the dome automatically rotates 180
degrees horizontally when a target object passes directly under the
PTZ dome for uninterrupted tracking.
Note: AUTO-FLIP is set to ON by default. It is not user-definable.
PROPORTIONAL
PAN
Use this function to change the pan/tilt speed according to the
amount of zoom. When there is a large amount of zoom, the pan/tilt
speed will be slower to prevent the image from moving too quickly in
live view.
Set to ON or OFF to enable/disable the function.
Note: This function is enabled automatically while setting a shadow
tour.

starts a predefined action. Set it between 5 and 720 seconds.
PARK
This is a predefined action. It can be set as presets 1-8, shadow tours

following situations, no park action is performed:
- When performing dome actions by calling special presets; or,
- When performing external alarm linkage actions.
SCAN SPEED
The scan speed defines the scan degree per second of pan scan, tilt
scan, and panoramic scan.
Select a scan speed between 1 and 40. The larger the value, the
faster the scan speed.
IMAGE FREEZE
Use this feature to directly switch from live view of the current scene
to another scene that is defined by a preset without showing the
areas between these two scenes. It reduces the bandwidth usage in
a digital network system and also provides privacy protection for the
areas between the two scenes displayed.
