4. BASIC OPERATIONS
This section outlines the basic operating instructions for the 4CH DVR.
4.1 Configuring Recording Settings
Recording Time settings (Recording Rate and Picture Quality Setting)
Recording time will vary depending on the image size, recording rate, and the capacity of the hard-disk
drives. Generally, the DVR comes with a built-in hard-disk drive for continuous recording from one to
four weeks under most recording conditions. The table below shows the possible recording times based
on a 80GB hard-disk drive at certain refresh rates and the corresponding image quality.
With one or more hard-disk drive(s) in operation, please calculate the recording time using the table
below in accordance with your requirement. For a NTSC unit, for example, if the unit is set to record
images with BEST quality at a 30 Frame/Sec record rate, normally a 80GB hard-disk drive will be filled
in 15 hours (See the gray area in the table). If a 160GB hard-disk drive is used with the same refresh
rate and picture quality, it will be filled in 30 hours (2 times the rate of a 80GB hard-disk drive).

REC RATE:
This option is for adjusting the number of pictures recorded every second into a storage disk. The
recording rate controls the frequency at which the number of video pictures can be recorded.
● For a NTSC unit, there are 11 different recording rates you can select from: 30F/S (30 frames
per second), 15F/S, 10F/S, 6F/S, 2.7F/S, 1.2F/S, 0.61F/S, 0.35F/S, 1F/8S, 1F/12S, and 1F/16S.
● For a PAL unit, there are 11 different recording rates you can select from: 25F/S (25 frames per
second), 12.5F/S, 8.3F/S, 5F/S, 2.7F/S, 1.4F/S, 0.76F/S, 0.44F/S, 1F/8S, 1F/12S, and 1F/16S.
Please refer to the table in section 4.1 for details.
NOTE: The 30 F/S (25 F/S for a PAL unit) recording rate can only function in a 352x240 (352x288

REC QUALITY:
This option determines the image quality to be recorded. The DVR stores images in the
compressed format and allows the image quality to be altered by the image size. There are 4
levels of image quality you can select from: BEST, HIGH, STANDARD, and BASIC. Selecting
the BEST image for use provides higher-resolution recorded images, and normally takes up
more storage space than a HIGH, STANDARD or BASIC image does.

REWRITE: When the hard disk is full, the device continues recording by displacing the old data.
STOP: When the hard disk is full, the device will stop recording.
AUDIO: This option determines the way to record sound if necessary.

ALM OPERATION:
This option determines whether to activate/deactivate the alarm recording when it detects an alarm input.
ON: The device activates the alarm recording when it detects an alarm input.
OFF: The device ignores the alarm signal when it detects an alarm input.
REC RATE:
This option is for the purpose of adjusting the number of pictures recorded every second into a storage
disk when an alarm input is activated. For a NTSC unit, there are 5 different record speeds you can
select from: 30F/S (30 frames per second), 15F/S, 10F/S, 6F/S, and REMAIN. For a PAL unit, there
are 5 different record speeds you can select from: 25F/S (25 frames per second), 12.5F/S, 8.3F/S,
5F/S, and REMAIN. If you select REMAIN for use, the device will record images at the same speed as
set on the REC page.
REC QUALITY:
This option determines the image quality to be recorded when an alarm input occurs. There are 4
levels of image quality to choose from: BEST, HIGH, STANDARD, and BASIC. The table below shows
the level of image quality with the corresponding compression ratio and image size for every 4

The DVR will generate a time index table indicating recorded data is kept in a particular HDD. This
allows to individually selecting recorded data to be displayed via the alarm list search and full list
search. The maximum number of lists, for a given HDD, is 3000. When the list of any given HDD is
used up-and the disk is not full, The unit will still use the rest of the space for recording. In such a
case, an index for the recent recorded data will be generated and the index of the next oldest data will
be erased so that the list does remain 3000 in total. And the next oldest data will be kept in the index
of the corresponding oldest data. For any newly recorded data, this approach will be applied until the
disk becomes full.

NOTE: When only one unit of the DVR is connected to a computer or LAN, you can freely
assign an IP address for the DVR. For example, there are a range of DVR IP
addresses from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.255. You can pick one for use from the
range of the IP. It’s not necessary to set MASK and GATEWAY; leave the settings
as default.
When a DVR is connected to a WAN, you must acquire a unique, permanent IP
address and correctly configure the MASK and GATEWAY settings according to
your network architecture. If you have any questions regarding those settings,
please contact a qualified MIS professional or your ISP.
NOTE: When connecting to a network, each connected DVR must be assigned a unique
IP, which must be in the same class type as your network address. IP addresses
are written as four sets of numbers separated by periods; for example, 192.168.0.1
Therefore, if the connected network is identified as Class C, for example, the first
three sets of numbers of the DVR IP address must be the same as the network
address. If the connected network is identified as Class B, the first two sets of
numbers of the DVR IP address must be the same as the network address. If you
have any questions regarding these settings, please contact a qualified MIS
professional or your ISP.
