ON/OFF
This switches “recording” on and off in each channel. If recording is not required on the selected channels,
even when the camera signal is input, set the recording of the corresponding channel as [OFF]. Recording
of the channel stops without disconnecting the camera’s BNC cable.
RESOLUTION
Select the desired resolution for each channel. Users can select eithjer 352×240/288, 720×240/288,
720×480/576 or 960x480/576. As the resolution number increases, the picture quality becomes better. For
example, 352×240 is VHS level and when high quality camera is used, 960×480/576 shows DVD level
picture quality. When the picture quality gets higher, the recording file size becomes bigger and the
recording period will be shorter. Thus, selecting appropriate resolution according to the situation is
important.
FPS
The system automatically calculates frames per second (FPS) and displays it as “Remaining FPS”.
Note 1) VBR (Variable Bit Rate)
Focuses on the image quality rather than data size. So, in case of complicated & high frequency
motion image, data size is larger and the recording period is shorter.
In this mode, the user can change each camera’s quality by selecting one of the following
options: Low / Standard / High / Highest.
2) CBR (Constant Bit Rate)
It focuses on keeping constant data size regardless of the image quality. It can be helpful for
maintaining recorded data as requested period but, in case of complicated & high frequency
motion image, the image quality is getting worse accordingly.
In this mode, the user can change each camera’s quality by selecting one of the following
options: 128K~896KBPS / 1M~3MBPS / Low / Standard / High / Highest.
42
AUDIO
Select the associated audio channel.
AUTO DEL (Auto Delete)
When activated, this enables the system to delete video recording that is longer than the number of days
set by “Auto Del”.
Note “Auto Del” does not guarantee the number of recording days that user set. For example, even
though the user sets “Auto Del” to 10 days, if there is not enough HDD space, then the system cannot
record up to 10 days.
If user sets 10 days in “Auto Del” on August 20 for the system that has, for example, 30 days of
video data, then the system will keep video from August 11 to August 20 for 10 days. All other video
recorded before August 11 will be deleted by the system.

USE DUAL STREAM (○
A
E
A
The DVR can simultaneously generate two independent video streams (one for local recording and the
other for network transmission) for users to effectively manage recording image quality and network traffic.
The frame rate and resolution for each stream can be independently set. For example, users can set
recording settings as “30fps at 960H resolution” while the network setup as “just 1 fps at CIF resolution”.
RESOLUTION
Select the desired resolution to be transmitted. Higher resolution requires the bigger network bandwidth
due to its data size.
FPS
Select the frame rate to be transmitted. It is not related to the record setting.
QUALITY
Select the image quality to be transmitted. It is not related to the record setting.
Higher quality requires the bigger network bandwidth due to its data size.
AUDIO
Select whether or not to transit audio data by clicking [Yes] or [No].
STREAM LIMIT
Allows users to reduce the image quality for transmission by percentage of the standard quality. Lower
percentages require smaller network bandwidth but image quality will be lower. On the contrary, higher
percentages require the bigger network bandwidth but the image quality will be better. The highest image
quality (100%) is equal to the standard image quality of record setting.
43
Note According to the setup of Resolution and FPS, the system automatically calculates “Remaining
Note
FPS” for dual stream.
Dual stream function is applied to network transmission of the live image monitoring, only. VOD
(Playback) is not related to dual.
4.4.2. SCHEDULE
Set the recording schedule for each camera individually or set for “ALL.” Recording can be set by each hour
from 00 through 23 a day. You can also set up a special recording schedule for holidays.
NO COLOR (Off)
No color indicated that there is no recording in progress. When a camera is set to “off” in the recording
schedule, the system will not record anything even though the user set recording frames and set the
camera to on in “CAMERA.”
YELLOW (Continuous Recording)
The system records at all times as set in the “CAMERA” settings.
GREEN (Motion-Detection Recording)
The system records only when motion is detected and stops recording when motion is not detected.
If “EVENT > MOTION ALARM” is disabled, then the system will record when motion is detected, but motion
alarm will not be activated.
ORANGE (Sensor-Activated Recording)
The system records only when the sensor is triggered as set in “EVENT > SENSOR” menu.
If “EVENT > SENSOR” and set this mode, then not record anything even though a sensor is triggered.
