1.9 VIDEO INPUTS/OUTPUTS INSTALLATION
Cameras and CCTV monitors must use copper center conductor/copper braid 75 Ohm video cable (e.g.
RG-59, RG-6, RG-11) with BNC connectors.
To avoid impedance mismatch and undesired loss/reflections, 50 Ohm coax cable (e.g. RG-58), or 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 standard 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 upon power-up.
1.10 AUDIO INSTALLATION
This DVR provides 12/8 line level audio inputs and 1 line level audio output.
ATTENTION: 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 connected with audio coax cable and RCA plugs.
AUDIO RECORDING FUNCTIONALITY:
Audio recording is activated / deactivated in the Camera Menu for Camera #1~12 (1~8) respectively.
Please check and always comply with local laws and regulations when using audio recording.
The audio channel is always recorded together with video and is independent of the image recording rate.
Though the audio record control is done in the Camera #1~12 (1~8) screen, there is no specific camera
allocation.
1.11 ALARM CONTACTS INSTALLATION
The alarm inputs can be used to start recording or for recording rate adjustment. In addition, alarm
reactions such as camera display on the monitor, buzzer, e-mail and network alarm are available. The
alarm output relay can be switched if required. Alarm input response actions can be controlled according to
a flexible schedule.

4.2 CAMERA SETTING
Figure 4-3 is a screenshot of the CAMERA SETTING MENU. This menu is used to configure individual
camera settings.
Figure 4-3 Camera Settings-Normal
4.2.1 Normal
No.: Camera 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, so 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.
Examples:
2 cameras/4CIF/30FPS plus 5 cameras/2CIF/15FPS plus 9 cameras/CIF/10FPS:
2x4x30+5x2x15+9x1x10= 240+150+90 = 480
2 cameras/4CIF/30FPS plus 2 cameras/2CIF/30FPS plus 12 cameras/CIF/10FPS:
2x4x30+2x2x30+12x1x10= 240+120+120 = 480
39
In these examples, the recording capacity of the DVR is fully allocated to normal recording, with no reserve
capacity for increasing image size and/or FPS rate in response to a motion or alarm event (see next item).
Since EverFocus DVRs have the capability to change recorded image size and FPS rate in response to
events, it may be advisable to reserve some recording capacity for event response. For example:
2 cameras/4CIF/10FPS plus 5 cameras/2CIF/10FPS plus 9 cameras/CIF/5FPS:
2x4x10+5x2x10+9x1x5= 80+100+45 = 225 allocated with 255 in reserve
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 HDD space.
Resolution: Select recording resolution based on video format.
NTSC: 704x480 / 704x240 / 352x240
PAL: 704x576 / 704x288 / 352x288
Aud: Check this box to enable audio recording on the DVR.
Ins: Check the box to enable the current camera. To take full advantage of the DVR’s recording abilities,
any unused cameras should have this option set to “disabled”.

Maximum desired frame rate in frames per second (FPS) for 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.

Figure 4-31 Network Menu – LAN

Network Type:
Static IP: User can set a fixed IP for network connection.
DHCP: DHCP server in LAN will automatically an assign IP configuration 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.
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.
69
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 EMV 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 purpose (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.

Networking Overview
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.
5.1 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.
5.2 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).
5.3 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).
91
5.4 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 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).
5.5 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). The 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/ #
92
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 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.
5.6 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).
93
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 preexisting 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.
5.7 Simple One to One Connection
Crossover Ethernet Cable Pin outs:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a cross-over cable.
94
Connection Procedure:
 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
 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.
 Log into the EverFocus DVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.
 You must use the Static IP option for this type of connection.
 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.
 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.
 To assign a fixed IP address in Windows 2000/XP.
95
96
97
 Click on the option that says “Use the following IP address”
 Assign an IP address of 192.168.1.2, a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0, and a Default Gateway of
192.168.1.1, then click OK.
 Restart both the computer and the DVR.
 To access the DVR from the computer, simply open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
http://192.168.1.3
98
5.8 Direct High Speed Modem Connection
Straight Through Ethernet Cable Pin outs:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a straight cable.
Connection Procedure:
 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
 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.
99
 Log into the EverFocus DVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.
 Input the Static IP address, the Subnet Mask, and the Gateway that you obtained from the internet
service provider.

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.
 Exit from the DVR’s Menu to save the settings.
 To access the DVR from a computer, open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
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.
100
5.9 Router or LAN Connection
Straight Through Ethernet Cable Pin outs:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a straight cable.
Connection Procedure:
 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
101
 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.
 Log into the EverFocus DVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.
 To let the router automatically assign an address:

Set the Network Type to DHCP. Make sure to write down the IP address and the Gateway.

Exit from the Menu to save settings.
To manually assign an address:

Go to a computer connected on the same network as the DVR.

Click on the Start button and choose Run.
o If using Windows Vista, choose Search instead.

Type “command” and click on OK.
o In Vista, you will need to double-click on the “Command Prompt” file to open it..

In the DOS prompt, type “ipconfig” and press Enter.

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”.

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
102
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.
 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.
To set DVR for Internet Connection through router
 The next step is to open ports within your router. Log into the router using a PC and open the
following ports.
o Ports to open: 80
o If your Internet service provider blocks port 80, you can change it to a different port in the
DVR’s Network Menu Setup; open/forward that port instead.
o If you are using a Linksys or D-Link router, see Chapter 8 for basic support on setting up
ports. For any other router, you will need to contact the manufacturer for support.
 To access the DVR from a computer simply open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
http:// (the IP address given by your internet service provider)

Note: If you changed to a different port other than 80, you will need to include this at the
end of the IP address
http:// (the IP address given by your internet service provider):portnumber
 If you have a WAN Dynamic IP address and have opened the ports, go to Chapter 7 to setup
DDNS.

7 EVERFOCUS DDNS SETUP
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”.
114
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!






Bring up the DVR’s Menu and check under the Camera Menu. Verify that all connected cameras
are checked as “Installed” and that Record Mode is set to “Continuous”.
Check the Disk or Information Menus and verify that the internal hard drive is being detected.
The DVR displays nothing on the main monitor.

Make sure the monitor is connected to either BNC Main Monitor port or the VGA port. If the
monitor has multiple inputs, make sure it is on the correct input source and display setting
(1024x768).

Check that the monitor cables are good and power is on.

Verify the recorder is getting the correct supply power.
There is no display coming from one of the channels on the DVR.

In the DVR’s Camera Menu, make sure that all cameras are checked as “Installed” and
unchecked for “Covert”.

If there is still no picture, switch ports or connect a working camera to the port that has no picture.
If you get an image, the problem is coming from the camera or cable.
I cannot connect to the recorder via the internet.

Check that you can connect to the DVR on the LAN.

Check that the DVR has a static IP address and the port used by the DVR is forwarded correctly
to that IP address in the router.

Verify that your Internet Service Provider does not block the IP port being used
121

Make sure you are using the correct WAN IP address given by the ISP, or, if you have a Dynamic
IP, check if the IP address has changed; use DDNS to avoid problems caused by changing ISP
addresses.
