INTRODUCTION
1.1. Welcome
Thank you for purchasing DVS-8504E, 4 channel, D1 H.264 Digital Video Server
developed by CTC Union Technologies Company, Limited. For a better understanding,
please read this manual before operating the DVS-8504E unit.
This installation guide provides instructions for installing the DVS-8504E Video Server
on your network. To check for any product updates or latest release of the product
User’s Manual, please visit www.ctcu.com.
1.2. What is IP Surveillance?
IP-Surveillance is a term for a security system that gives users the ability to monitor
and record video and/or audio over an IP (Internet Protocol-based) computer network
such as a local area network (LAN) or the Internet. In a simple IP-Surveillance system,
this involves the use of a network camera (or an analog camera with a video
encoder/video server), a network switch, a PC for viewing, managing and storing video,
and video management software.
Unlike analog video systems that use dedicated point-to-point analog cabling from the
camera location to the viewing/recording station, IP-Surveillance (or network video)
uses the IP network technology as the backbone for transporting information. In an
IP-Surveillance application, digitized video and/or audio streams can be sent to any
location, even around the world, if desired, via a wired and/or wireless IP network,
enabling video monitoring and recording from anywhere with network access.
While an analog video system is for the most part a one-directional signal carrier that
ends at the recording device, a network video system is bi-directional (allowing
information to be sent and received) and can be an integrated part of a larger, scalable
system. A network camera, for instance, can send video and audio to a user, as well as
receive from the user audio and data instructions that could, for example, activate
doors or external alarms. In addition, a network video system can communicate with
several applications in parallel and perform various tasks such as detecting motion or
sending different streams of video. Such a system provides for greater performance
possibilities and flexibility.

DVS-8504E User Guide
1.3. IP Surveillance Benefits
The benefits of digital surveillance are many. At the camera level, the scalability of an
IP-based system grows from a single camera to thousands in single unit increments,
compared with 16-camera or channel steps for DVR or PC-based systems. In addition,
any camera can be provided with any frame rate at any time, and frame rate and
storage capacity can be increased simply by adding hard drives and PC servers.
Moreover, IP allows "intelligent" functionality of camera, such as motion detection,
sensor input, relay output and alarm triggering or even advanced intelligence like
'object left' or 'object missing'. Faster system integration allows one network that
controls audio, video and data with remote accessibility of live or stored video streams
from any location with increased reliability through real-time management software.
1.4. Network Video Recording
IP-based systems employ an NVR (network video recorder) rather than a DVR. The
NVR is a server, using software that receives video streams of all digital video sources
or analog cameras from the network and stores the content on a hard disk. Because
they are IP based, Network Video Recorders can be managed remotely via a LAN or
over the Internet giving greater flexibility. Capable of recording at super high
resolutions and at speeds of up to 480 pictures per second, the NVR offers unmatched
versatility.
1.5. Quick Install Steps
Follow these steps to install the 8504E Video Server on your local network (LAN) :
1. Check the package contents against the list below.
2. Connect the Video Server. See page 10.
3. Set an IP address. See page 12 for information on the available methods.
4. Set the password. See page 10.
5. Connect with Internet Explorer.
6. Configure Video settings

TROUBLE SHOOTING
1) I can’t seem to add the DVS video into the NVR live view. Attached is a
screenshot of my NVR setting. Please check what am I missing?
If you are using RTSP streaming, please make sure that you have chosen the
Stream Mode in RTSP properly. (See attached picture). By the way, the 6789
port is for UDP stream. You also have to make sure that there is no firewall or
network block concern if there is network device like NAT between the NVR and
the DVS. Make sure you forward the port properly.
2) In web browser playback, I can’t fast forward the video. I dragged the slider,
but nothing happens.
Yes, we have found this problem in firmware V1.1532 which you have on hand.
This problem didn't exist in the previous edition. We will fix it very quickly and
provide you the updated firmware as soon as it is available.
3) I can’t find a way to backup video directly from the DVS local HDD onto my
PC. I pressed the REC button in playback, it seems to start recording whatever
is playback, but I tried to play the recorded file on VLC, nothing happens. Can I
just copy the video from the DVS HDD to my PC, without waiting for the REC?
The only way to back up the video now from the HDD is to push the REC button
while doing the playback. The backup video needs to be transcoded to AVI
format to be successfully played on the VLC player. Attached zip file is the tool
software that you can use to transfer the back up video. We will provide a more
efficient process to manage the video files in the HDD very soon.
4) The email notifies me of motion detect, but there’s no attachment. Is this
normal?
Please
open
the
DVS
page
through
I.E.
Go
to
"Setting"-->"Advance"-->"SMTP"-->"General" to set up the email address.
Make sure to check the "JPEG" box to send the attached file.
56
DVS-8504E User Guide
5) Is there a way to store the video recording directly to a PC over SAMBA or
NFS protocol?
For SAMBA, although our DVS has embedded Linux, we put most of the CPU
resource on the video encode and decode processes. You can understand it
while you operate the DVS which brings the exceptional hardware encode
capability. Therefore, the DVS-8504E so far cannot support either SAMBA or
NFS protocol.
6) How do I use the Live stream URL (rtsp : //ipaddress/live.mp)
You have to use VLC media player to watch the video as VLC can support the
H.264 format. Real player and Windows Media Player cannot support H.264
compression yet.
7) What is Cell Threshold
This parameter means the number of scan times in a period in the motion
detection area. The higher the setting number is, the more scan is proceeding
in a single period (It means more "Sensitive"). On the other hand, the lower the
setting number is, the less scan is proceeding.
8) What is Spatial Threshold
This parameter means the image alteration rate inside the motion detection
area. The higher the setting number is, the higher the threshold of the motion
detection activation which means the harder the condition of motion detection
will be sufficient.
9) What is Debounce time
It means during the setting time, all the motion detection detected will be treated
as one detected event. For example, if you set it at the min. 20 seconds, there
is one moving object trigger the motion detection event. In the following 20
seconds, even if there are other triggers in the same motion detection area, the
user will receive the alarm only one time. This debounce time can prevent the
user from receiving too many redundant alarms. After all, once the first motion
trigger the alarm, the user can playback the video to check out the related
image data around the trigger time.

DVS-8504E User Guide
10) SMTP already set but received no email notification?
You have to set up the SMTP server and Sender Mail Address under same
source. That means, for example, if you set "smtp.gmail.com" in SMTP server,
the Sender Mail Address has to be [email protected] (XXXXX depends on
the actual gmail account). Please kindly note that we suggest you choosing
456(SSL) port and check SSL under Authentication while using gmail as SMTP
server.
