KEYBOARD OPERATION
Operation overview
The VKBD4 Keyboard has been designed to control Vista’s DVR’s, Matrices, PTZ Domes and Remote
set up cameras. Due to this variety of devices the keyboard has several modes of operation. The
keyboard modes are:
LIVE Mode (Blue LEDs)
For selection of live pictures and displays form DVRs and Matrices. This is the default mode when the
keyboard is powered.
PLAYBACK Mode (Red LEDs)
For Reviewing or Archiving of data from a DVR.
TELEMETRY Mode (Green LEDs)
Control of PTZ domes and set up of Remote set up cameras.
The LCD icons and the colour status of the backlit LEDs indicate the keyboard’s mode and which keys
are available for that mode.
Depending on its mode, the keyboard’s hard and soft keys perform different functions. A soft key’s
function is displayed adjacent to the keys on the LCD display, while a hard key’s function is shown by
matching the back lit LEDs to the coloured icons printed on each key.
The keyboard supports hard keys from more than one mode as indicated by the different back lit LEDs,
and keys that are always back lit blue are active in all modes.

Repeat count – This is the number of time the keyboard will send the message if it
Does not get a valid response, default 3.
Repeat Delay – This is the time period between resends
Telem Delay – If no telemetry commands are sent for this period, the Keyboard will
return to Live mode, set between 0 and 50 seconds. Default is 0, so it will not time
out.
Devices – The keyboard can be set to either Advanced or Simple.
