1 PRODUCT OVERVIEW
Full-feature video surveillance in the palm of your hand:
The EverFocus EMV200S/EMV400S digital video recorder features a built-in 3-axis G-sensor, an external plugin GPS module for location tracking, and H.264 compression for efficient recording and fast network transmission
of recorded data.
The EMV200S supports 2 channels while the EMV400S supports 4 channels. The user can record real-time video
and audio on each channel (up to 30/25fps per channel at D1 resolution). This device’s compact size allows easy
installation in almost any usage scenario; such as inside a vehicle, fast deployment at a temporary fixed site, or
portable battery-powered surveillance.
This DVR provides multiple interfaces, including two USB ports, a wired Ethernet port, IR remote control, 2/4
alarm inputs and 1 SPDT (Form “C”) alarm output. Featuring shock and vibration-resistant terminal block & D-sub
connectors, this DVR is rugged enough for reliable operation even when the host vehicle encounters bumpy roads.
Add to this a new, easy-to-read GUI that is specially designed for use with portable small-screen monitors, and
you get a powerful surveillance solution in a small package.
Additionally, this DVR’s power supply provides voltage regulation. It also features SD card recording (only the
32GB SD cards from Transcend and Sandisk have been tested), speed reporting and ‘virtual fencing’ (using the
embedded G-sensor and plug-in GPS module), as well as support for control via a hand-held IR remote controller,
making it the best choice for applications that require 1~4 channel portable/mobile surveillance.

The DVR is typically connected to one camera that is installed inside the car. Other cameras can also be installed
in different locations in the car (for example, use a waterproof camera on the outside of the vehicle). A typical
monitor’s power supply would usually connect to the car’s cigarette-plug adapter. For installation procedures,
please refer to the guides that came with the camera(s) and monitor(s) you purchased.
The monitor and all cameras must be purchased separately.

•
Connecting the Camera(s) and a Monitor
Connect the Video Output cable of each camera to a corresponding BNC-Female connector (marked “VIN”) that is
attached to the supplied D-Sub harness adapter.
Connect the Audio Output cable of each camera to a corresponding RCA-Female connector (marked “AIN”) that is
attached to the supplied D-Sub harness adapter.
Adjust each camera according to your requirements (usually by hand and via an OSD menu displayed on an
attached monitor).
The EMV200S/EMV400S gives you the option of attaching one monitor to it. If you want to install a monitor in the
vehicle, attach the monitor’s Video and Audio Input cables to the BNC-Female and RCA-Female connectors
marked “VOUT” and “AOUT”. You can use this monitor to view all the feeds from your attached cameras – one at
a time or simultaneously.

1.9 VIDEO I/O REQUIREMENTS
Cameras and CCTV monitors attached to this DVR must use copper-based 75 Ohm video cable (e.g. RG-59, RG6, or RG-11) with BNC connectors (preferably male, or female via a female-female adapter).
Due to the possibility of impedance mismatch and undesired loss/reflections, 50 Ohm coax cable (e.g. RG-58)
and 75 ohm foil shield antenna cable and other types of coaxial cable are not compatible.
All connected video sources must provide a 1 Vpp NTSC or PAL video signal.
When converting other transmission types (twisted pair, fiber optics, radio) for the video inputs, be sure to verify
accurate receiver calibration and signal levels.
ATTENTION: In order for the system to auto-detect the appropriate video format (NTSC or PAL), make sure that
there is a video signal on Video Input 1 (“VIN 1”) upon power-up.
1.10 AUDIO INSTALLATION
This DVR provides 2/4 line level audio inputs (4 in the case of the EMV400S) and 1 line level audio output.
PLEASE NOTE: The direct connection of a non-amplified microphone is not supported (a microphone amplifier is
required). The audio output requires an amplifier to drive a speaker or headphones.
The installation must be done with audio coaxial cable and RCA connectors.
AUDIO RECORDING FUNCTIONALITY:
Audio recording is activated / deactivated on a per-camera basis in the DVR’s Camera Menu. Please check and
always comply with local laws and regulations when using audio recording.
The audio channel is recorded with the video channel and is independent of the image recording rate. Audio
recording is standard and do not require any further setup.

1.11 ALARM CONTACTS INSTALLATION
The 2/4 alarm inputs can be used to trigger recordings or to adjust recording rates. These inputs can also trigger
alarms that cause the feed of the connected camera to be displayed on the surveillance monitor, or they can
trigger buzzers, e-mail alerts and network alarms. The alarm output relay can be enabled if required. Alarm input
response actions can be controlled according to a flexible schedule.
1.11.1
Alarm Input Contacts
This DVR provides one alarm input per camera. All inputs are programmable N.O. (Normal Open) or N.C. (Normal
Closed).

camera recording settings.
Clicking on the Camera icon opens the Camera Settings-Normal menu
5.1.1
Camera Settings – Normal
No.: Camera’s channel number.
Speed: Frame rate in frames (images) per second (FPS) for continuous recording. The speed is limited by the
maximum total recording capacity of the DVR as allocated across all the installed cameras, with an upper limit of
30 FPS (NTSC – 25 PAL) per individual camera (real time recording). The DVR is capable of recording 480 CIF
(352x240) sized frames per second (NTSC; 400 PAL); each 704x240 image (2 CIF) per second requires
allocation of two of those CIF frames from the overall capacity of 480 CIF frames, and each 704x480 image (D1 or
4 CIF) per second requires allocation of four of the CIF frames from the overall capacity. Thus the DVR can record
a combination of CIF, 2 CIF and 4 CIF images, with different combinations of image size/resolution and different
FPS rates on different cameras, as long as the total CIF equivalents allocated is not greater than 480 CIF per
second. Choices for possible record speeds are 30, 15, 10, 7.5, 5, 1 and 0 FPS.
Quality: Select an image quality for recording. There are five different qualities available: Superior, High,
Standard, Basic and Low. A higher image quality uses more storage space.
Resolution: Select recording resolution based on video format.

Speed:
This is the maximum desired frame rate in frames per second (FPS) for alarm-event recording; if more than one
camera requires simultaneous event recording, the total for all cameras cannot exceed the maximum available
FPS for the DVR at the corresponding resolution setting, and the available FPS may be divided across the
cameras responding to an event. In the example above, with 225 CIF FPS allocated and 255 CIF FPS remaining,
it would be possible to increase the FPS rate on the two 4 CIF cameras from 10 FPS to 15 FPS and also increase
the resolution and rate of the five 2 CIF cameras to 4 CIF and 15 FPS, with 15 CIF equivalent FPS still available
to be assigned to one or more of the nine CIF resolution cameras. If not all event conditions occur simultaneously,
greater resolution and/or FPS increases are possible for individual cameras, as long as the net total of 480 CIF
equivalents is not exceeded.

FULL. The use of Record Overwrite is strongly recommended. If you do not use this feature, please be sure to
make specific arrangements to monitor/be notified when the storage device is full.
Power Delay-On: This is the length of time that the DVR will wait before starting up after the vehicle is switched
on. This helps to avoid excessive power consumption and power surges during startup.
Power Delay-Off: This is the length of time that the DVR will stay on after the vehicle is switched off. This lets the
DVR stay functional even if the vehicle is not.
Time Stamp: Select if the time and date will display while recording. OFF means no display, TOP and BOTTOM
means time/date will be displayed and refers to where it will be displayed on the screen.

Auto Erase Video: The hard drive will automatically erase video after it has been on the hard drive for the
selected number of days. To use the maximum available hard drive space, choose “OFF”. (See the Record
Overwrite section and notes above.) This feature is useful if local rules and regulations require recorded video to
be discarded after a specific number of days, or to limit the retention of older recorded video to clear space in
anticipation of event recording.

5.6.1
LAN Settings
Click the LAN icon to open the LAN setup options.
NOTE: Since every Network Configuration is different, please check with your Network Administrator or ISP to
see if your DVR should use specific IP addresses and/or port numbers.
Network Type:
Static IP: User can set a fixed IP for network connection.
DHCP: DHCP server in LAN will automatically assign an IP address for the network connection.
IP address: This field shows the DVR’s current IP Address. A static IP address must be set manually. If DHCP or
PPPoE is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
Subnet Mask: This field shows the subnet mask for your network so the DVR will be recognized within the
network. If DHCP or PPPoE is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
Gateway: This field shows the gateway on your network for the DVR to use when communicating with any
devices not on the local network. If DHCP or PPPoE is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
DNS Server 1: This field shows the primary DNS server for your network. If DHCP is selected and an internet
connection is available, this value should be assigned automatically. This field must have a valid DNS address in
order to use the DDNS feature (see Sections 4.7.5 and 7 DDNS for more detail).
DNS Server 2: This field shows the secondary DNS server for your network.
HTTP Port: Port number for HTTP/WEB communication.
Additional information:
1. Set up the DVR Network Menu according to the instructions detailed in the Networking chapter of this DVR’s
manual.
a. If using DHCP, all settings will be detected automatically. While DHCP is a useful tool for determining
the network settings, if you set up your DVR in this manner its IP address may change at different
times for different reasons, particularly after a power failure. If the IP address of the DVR changes,
you may have difficulties accessing your DVR locally and/or remotely. It is strongly recommended
that you assign a fixed (static) IP address to your DVR, and that in order to avoid address
conflicts the IP address assigned be outside of the DHCP range of addresses your router issues to
DHCP clients. Please do not set the DHCP address issued to the DVR by the router as its static IP
address unless you take specific steps that program your router to prevent such address conflicts.
44
b. If using a Fixed IP (recommended), you will need to input the information manually. In order for DDNS
to work, you must enter valid data, compatible with your network, for all four of the network setting
fields: IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and the DNS Address (depending on your network
hardware and configuration this may be the IP address of your router/gateway, or it may be the actual
IP address of the local DNS server).
The DNS server IP is required because your DNS server provides critical information necessary for
the DVR to communicate with the DDNS server.
You can obtain the actual DNS IP from your Internet Service Provider (ISP); or, from a PC located on the same
LAN as the DVR, go to http://www.dnsserverlist.org/ to obtain a list of the IP addresses of their recommendation of
the best servers to use for your location.
2. If you are connecting through a router, make sure that you have ‘opened up’ all the required network ports in
the port forwarding section of your router’s setup options. That is, you have directed the router to send any
incoming traffic using those IP ports to the LAN IP address of the DVR. Useful information about router port
forwarding can be found at www.portforward.com . Different routers may use different terms for port forwarding
function. For instance, D-Link calls it virtual server, Netopia calls it pinholes.
The default port for the EMV200S/EMV400S is: 80
Note: Port 80 is the default port used for web browsing. Because of this, in order to prevent the average user from
hosting a web server, most ISPs BLOCK traffic using port 80 from reaching the average site. If you only plan to
view your DVR on a LAN, you can use port 80, and don’t have to concern yourself with DDNS or routers. However,
if you desire remote access to your DVR, perhaps using DDNS (optional), you MUST select functional ports and
set up the port forwarding in your router. Other ports, such as 8080 and 8000 are sometimes blocked by ISPs as
well.
What port(s) should be used? There are 65,535 valid IP ports to choose from. These are broken down into three
groups:
• Well Known Ports 0 thru 1023
• Registered Ports 1024 thru 49151
• Dynamic and/or Private Ports 49152 thru 65535
So, rather than encounter a port conflict by choosing a port commonly used for another purposes (like port 25 for
SMTP mail or port 448 for secure sockets), choose an ‘unusual’ port number. For example, add 50,000 to your
house number: 50,123 is less likely to lead to a port conflict. For a list of the known and registered ports, see
http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers
Bandwidth (Kbps): Specify, disabled / 128 K/ 256 K / 512 K / 768K/ 1M / 3M bps. This is the maximum
bandwidth that the DVR is allowed to use on the network. This is a useful function when connecting the DVR to
busy or heavily loaded networks, or when accessing the DVR(s) over a WAN.

Chapter
6 NETWORKING OVERVIEW
6
This chapter will give you a basic instruction on how to set up the DVR for network connection. It is highly
recommended that you have a working knowledge of what a network is and how it works. This will be helpful in
completing the networking process.
6.1 INTRODUCTION TO TCP/IP
TCP/IP is the group of protocols used by the Internet and most Local Area Networks (LANs) throughout the world.
In TCP/IP, every computer or other communications device that is connected to the network has a unique IP
address. By doing this you are giving your device a unique address similar to the address of your house. An IP
address is composed of four octets (numbers in the range of 0 to 255) separated by decimal points. The IP
address is used to uniquely identify a host or computer on the LAN. For example, one computer on a network
could have an IP address of 192.168.1.127.
You should never give two or more devices the same exact IP address, but the first three octets of an IP address
is often the same for all computers in the local area network. For example, if a total of 253 computers exist in a
single LAN, the IP addresses could be assigned starting with 192.168.1.x, where x represents a number in the
range of 2 to 254. In IPP address could be compared with a telephone number.
6.2 SUBNET MASKS
Each host in a LAN has a subnet mask. The subnet mask is a set of octets that is used to determine which LAN or
class it belongs to. The number 255 is usually used to represent the network address portion of the IP address
and a zero is placed at the end to identify the host portion of the address. Basically the subnet mask tells the
devices how the network addresses are organized, and helps to determine which addresses are local and which
are remote (on the other side of the router).
6.3 GATEWAY ADDRESS
Addressees are either local or remote. A gateway address is composed of four octets separated by decimal points.
The gateway address is used to uniquely identify the device on the LAN that has access to the communications
links connecting to other LANs, WANs and/or the Internet (access to the ‘remote’ addresses).
6.4 VIRTUAL PORTS
A port number represents a "channel" or entryway for network communications. Port numbers allow different
computers to utilize network resources without interfering with each other. Port numbers most commonly appear
60
in network programming, particularly socket programming. Sometimes, though, port numbers are made visible to
the casual user. For example, some websites on the Internet use a URL like the following:
http://www.sitename.com:8100/
In this example, the number 8100 refers to the port number used by the browser to connect to the web server.
The standard port number used by web sites is 80, so this number does not need to be included with the URL
(although it can be). In IP networking, port numbers can theoretically range from 0 to 65535. Most popular network
applications, though, use port numbers at the lower end of the range (such as 80 for HTTP). Ports are similar to
doors and windows of your house, with port 80 acting as the front door. If these are not open you could not enter
the house. This is the same case with ports on a network. If the ports for a specific IP address are not open then
you could not gain access to that IP address.
Note: The term port also refers to several other aspects of network technology. A port can refer to
Ethernet connection points, such as those on a hub, switch, or router. The term port is also used to refer
to a physical connection point for peripheral devices such as serial, parallel, and USB ports.
Another analogy would be: if a WAN IP address is similar to the phone number identify a site, IP ports are similar
to telephone extensions, in that they allow communication with specific devices within a site that all share the
same external (WAN) IP address. A router is a device which allows multiple computers and other IP enabled
equipment to share that single WAN IP address. It functions like a “switchboard operator” – opening ports creates
an association between those port numbers and the LAN IP address of specific equipment on the LAN behind the
router. When the router sees a ‘call’ for a specific ‘extension’ (port), it directs that data stream to the (LAN IP
address of the) equipment associated with that ‘extension’ (port).
6.5 PRE-INSTALLATION
Before beginning the installation, please answer the following questions:
Do you have Hi-speed Internet?
______________
There are many types of high speed Internet available. The most common ones are T1, Cable, and DSL
(in order of speed). This DVR is not compatible with a dial-up connection.

Note: EverFocus suggests having a minimum upload speed of 256Kbps. This can be addressed
by your Internet Service Provider.
What type of modem/router do you have?
______________
Modem/router model name/ #
The modem/router was either installed by your Internet service provider or purchased by you to establish
a connection to the Internet. A router assigns different internal IP addresses to local computers; this
allows multiple computers to access the Internet through the same external IP address.
Do you have a static IP address?
______________
A Static IP address means you use the same IP address every time you connect to the Internet. With a
static IP address, other Internet users always know the address of your location and can easily connect
61
with it. This makes it much simpler to host a website, email server, or other type of server connection.
Everfocus suggests using a static IP address. If this is not available, you will need to use a dynamic IP
address. This is explained below.
Do you have a dynamic IP address?
______________
A Dynamic IP address means your IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet. We
recommend asking your Internet service provider for a Static IP address. If this is not a possibility, you
may use the DDNS feature of the DVR. DDNS stands for Dynamic Domain Name Server, a service that
provides a central database where IP information can be stored and retrieved. It allows those using a
dynamic IP address to be registered centrally so users can connect to it by name. See Chapter 7 for
details on using EverFocus DDNS.
What type of DVR are you installing?
______________
The default ports are
ECOR264: 80
Paragon: 80
ECOR: 80, 1600
EDR/EDVR: 80, 1600, and 37260 – 37263
EMV: 80
If the ports were changed in the Network Setup, use those port numbers.
6.6 WHAT IS YOUR NETWORK SETUP?
Everfocus DVR’s can operate using one of three types of networking connections.
1. Simple One-to-One Connection: A simple one to one connection is the simplest type of network
connection. It uses a cross-over cable to make a direct connection from one computer to another (or in
this case a computer to a DVR).
2. Direct High Speed Modem Connection: A direct modem connection uses a standard network cable to
connect the modem directly to a computer (or in this case a modem to the DVR). This type of connection
only covers single-port modems. For a combination modem/router, use the setup described below.
3. Router or LAN Connection – A local area network connection requires either a router or a pre-existing
LAN connection. This is the most common type of connection. A router allows multiple computers and
DVR’s to access each other as well as the Internet. It assigns different internal IP addresses to the
computers.
62
6.7 SIMPLE ONE-TO-ONE CONNECTION
Crossover Ethernet Cable Pinouts:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a cross-over cable.
Connection Procedure:
1. The First step is to purchase or make a cross-over cable. We recommend purchasing one if you have
never made a cross-over cable. Please remember you can not use a straight through network cable for
this application
2. Once you have a cross-over cable plug one end into the LAN port on the back of the DVR and the other
into the network card on the back of the computer.
3. Log into the EverFocus DVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.
4. You must use the Static IP option for this type of connection.
5. Assign an IP of 192.168.001.003, a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.000, and a Gateway of 192.168.001.001.
You can ignore DNS Server.
6. The next step is to set the computer’s network settings to match those of the DVR. You will need
Administrator privileges on your Windows machine to do this.
63
7. Follow the instructions below to assign a fixed IP address in Windows 2000/XP.
64
8. Click on the option that says “Use the following IP address”
9. Assign an IP address of 192.168.1.2, a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0, and a Default Gateway of

10. Restart both the computer and the DVR.
11. To access the DVR from the computer, simply open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
http://192.168.1.3
65
6.8 DIRECT HIGH-SPEED MODEM CONNECTION
Straight-Through Ethernet Cable Pinouts:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a straight cable.
Connection Procedure:
1. The first step is to purchase or make a straight through cable. We recommend purchasing one if you have
never made a straight through cable. Please remember you can not use a cross-over network cable for
this application
2. Once you have a straight through cable plug one end into the LAN port on the back of the recorder and
the other into the high speed modem.
3. Log into the EverFocus DVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.
4. Input the Static IP address, the Subnet Mask, and the Gateway that you obtained from the internet
service provider.
66

Note: If you have a dynamic IP address, you can set the DVR to DHCP to automatically detect the
network settings. Therefore, it can use a dynamic IP address.
5. Exit from the DVR’s Menu to save the settings.
6. To access the DVR from a computer, open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
a. http:// (IP address given by your internet service provider)

Note: When using this type of connection, only one device can be connected to the modem at a time.
You will need to use a computer at a different location to test the connection.
6.9 ROUTER OR LAN CONNECTION
Straight-Through Ethernet Cable Pinouts:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a straight cable.
67
Connection Procedure:
1. The First step is to purchase or make a straight through cable. We recommend purchasing one if you
have never made a straight through cable. Please remember you can not use a cross-over network
cable for this application
2. Once you have a straight through cable plug one end into the LAN port on the back of the recorder
and the other into the router.


The network information will be displayed on a screen similar to the one below.
o In Windows Vista, look for the information that says “IP v4”.
68

Take the values for Subnet Mask and Default Gateway and input them into the DVR; these values
should be exactly the same in both devices. However, you should change the last number of the IP
address. For example, if the IP address of the computer is 192.168.2.101, the DVR’s IP address
should be 192.168.002.050.
5. To access the DVR from a computer simply open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
http:// (IP address of the DVR)

Note: The DVR’s IP address will only work at the location of the DVR. To connect from a different
location over the Internet, see below.

Setup Steps:
Step 1. Set up the Network Menu according to the instructions detailed in the Networking chapter. (Make
sure that DNS Server 1 is set correctly or DDNS will not work)
Step 2.
Go to the website http://everfocusddns.com and check for an available name.
Note: This step is optional, though recommended, as it is used to check the availability of a
host name. If the name is already used, and attempt to register that name must fail. If the
name is available, proceed to step 3 for DDNS setup.
Step 3.
In DVR’s Network Menu, go to DDNS. Choose “EverfocusDDNS” for the Server and put in your
chosen name in the field: DVR Name.
PLEASE NOTE: The name of the DVR cannot include a space, or a dot (period) or any special characters
particularly ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) + < > " ; : . , _
Step 4.
Click (or select and press Enter) on the “Register/Update” button to synchronize the DVR with the
DDNS server. You should see an indication of “Success” on the screen. If you see “Could Not Find
Server” or any other error message instead, double-check your network settings and DDNS name
and resubmit the DDNS name until you get “Success”.
Step 5. You should now be able to connect by typing the name you created into the address bar.
Example: http://hostname.everfocusddns.com
It is not necessary to append the HTTP port number to the DDNS name. The EverFocus DDNS server not only
keeps track of your DVR’s IP address, it keeps track of the ports too!
