1 Introduction
BlackVS is an application for Blackberry smart-phones that allows the connection to VX units
range with an Internet connection.

5.1 Live video screen
It may take several seconds until the live video screen shows information depending on the
connection type and the latency.
At the top of the image it appears the connected unit name, at the bottom, on the left side, is
displayed the camera name and on the right side both the camera number and the number of
received images since the application started are shown.
When the camera is a dome it is indicated through a text that appears at bottom centre.
The camera name can have several colours indicating its status.
Repose
Cámara1 (verde)
Recording
Cámara1 (rojo)
Signal fails
Cámara1 (amarillo)
Not installed
Cámara1 (gris)
The letter before the camera number shows the visualization mode.
“C” indicates “camera” mode. Example, C1 indicates that the images are from camera 1.
“T”: indicates “tour” mode. In this mode an automatic tour is made through all the cameras of
the connected unit.
To select a camera use the menu option “List Cameras” that over-lays on the live video screen
a list of cameras and their status or just type the camera number on the mobile keyboard. To
select cameras from 10 to 16 first type an asterisk “ * “ followed by the camera number.
To select the tour mode press cero “ 0 “.
When a camera is a dome the application can select the first 10 presets. Once the dome is
selected, to go to a preset press the hash key “ # “ and then the preset number. To select the
preset 10 press “ 0 “

Take into account that you will see the dome appear on the screen several seconds after its
activation due to the latency of communications.
5.2 Digital input screen
The “Input List” screen shows the digital inputs’ current status in the connected unit. This is an
informative screen and it doesn’t allow operation of the digital inputs.
Each digital input appears with a status icon (activated/ red, deactivated/green) following of its
name. Some mobiles depending on the screen will not show the complete digital input list, you
can browse the list with the mobile cursors.

Each digital output is shown by an icon displaying the current status and its name. When the
output is activated the icon appears in red, when it is deactivated it appears in green.

6 Error messages
When there is a problem the application shows an error message that will appear in the
screen as follows.
The following list indicates the most common errors and its probable causes.

Video Server not found. This error is caused by a wrong IP address specification for the
video server unit. Check if the IP address is correct by connecting to it from a web
browser in a PC or using the phone web server. You will not be able to see the login
page of the unit but you will be able to verify the connection.

Not a Video Server. This error usually indicates that we are connecting to a Web server
that is not a VX unit or that the specified port is wrong. Make sure that you have
specified the right port in the right format (i.e. IP_address:port)

Authorization Failure. This error is usually caused by an incorrect password. Make sure
that you specify the correct user and the right password in the “Edit Server” screen

No video received. This message could be caused by an error in the remote unit that is
not providing a proper video stream

Image Error. This message indicates an unexpected error in the process of receiving an
image from a unit. It can be caused by abnormal behaviour of the unit or instabilities in
the communication network.

Connection Error. This message usually signals a problem when opening a connection
to a unit. This situation takes place the first time a unit is selected or when a new camera
is requested

Register Error. This message indicates communication problems with the license server
when registering the application.

The connection is lost. Is possible that a change in the unit configuration has been
made. Please connect again.

7 Trouble-shooting
The most common cause of error is related to problems with the Internet connection.
Poor performance in certain areas. There are areas in which the data access through the
mobile phone works very poorly, in particular in 3G communication.
The mobile phone can indicate the presence of a proper 3G signal but the mobile phone does
not get regular access to data communication. This results in very irregular image display with
frequent frozen images and very poor motion rendition. Unfortunately, nothing can be done to
improve the application in these areas. One must wait until the mobile phone service provider
improves the situation or switch to a different service provider.
