3 Installation and Connections
Note: All the installation and operations here should conform to your local
electric safety code.
3.1 Check Unpacked DVR
When you receive the DVR from the shipping agency, please check whether there is
any visible damage to the DVR appearance. The protective materials used for the
package of the DVR can protect most accidental clashes during transportation. Then
you can open the box to check the accessories.
Please check the items in accordance with the list on the warranty card. Finally you can
remove the protective film of the DVR.
3.2 HDD Installation
3.2.1 Choose HDDs
We recommend Seagate HDD of 7200rpm or higher.
3.2.2 Calculate HDD Size
This series have no limit to HDD capacity. You can use 120G-750G HDD to guarantee
higher stability.
The formula of total HDD size is:
Total Capacity (MB) = Camera Amount * Recording Hours * HDD Usage Per Hour (M/h)
H.264 compression is ideal for standalone DVRs. It can save more than 30% HDD
capacity than MPEG4. When you calculate the total HD capacity, you should estimate
the average HDD capacity per hour for each channel.
For example, for a 4-ch DVR, the average capacity of HDD usage per hour per channel
is 200M/h. Now if you hope the DVR can record the video 12 hours each day for 30
days, the total capacity of HDDs needed is: 4 channels * 30 days * 12 hours * 200 M/h =
288G. So you need to install one 300G HDD or 2*160G HDDs.
3.2.3 HDD Installation
Data ribbons, fastening screws and smart HDD shelf design are already provided in the
accessories.
1. Fix the HDD on the bracket.
2. Connet power and data cable.
19
3. Fix the HDD bracket on the top.
4.Fix the bracket on the side.
After HDD installation, please check data ribbon connection and power cord.
3.3 CD/DVD Burner Installation
For built-in burner, you can dismantle front plate to install CD burner. This built-in burner
should be set as MASTER.
For USB burners, you need to install USB series burner.
This series DVR is compatible with various burner brands popular in today’s market.
You can consult our local technical support or visit our website for more information.
3.4 Desktop and Rack Mounting
3.4.1 Desktop Mounting
To prevent surface damage, please make sure that the rubber feet are securely
installed on the four corners of the bottom of the unit.
Position the unit to allow for cable and power cord clearance at the rear of the unit. Be
sure that the air flow around the unit is not obstructed.
3.4.2 Rack Mounting
The DVR occupies two rack units of vertical rack space.
The hardware necessary to mount the DVR into a rack is supplied with the unit.
Install the cabinet in ventilated place. Avoid extreme heat, humid or dusty conditions.
You can use a soft dry brush to clean opening outlet, cooling fan and etc regularly.
3.5 Connecting Power Supply
Please check input voltage and device power button match or not.
We recommend you use UPS to guarantee steady operation, DVR life span, and other
peripheral equipments operation such as cameras.
3.6 Connecting Video Input and Output Devices
3.6.1 Connecting Video Input
The DVR automatically detects the video standard (PAL or NTSC) whenever you
connect a video input. It accepts both color and black-and-white and analog video.
NOTE:
z Enabling line lock on cameras may cause video distortion. There may be noise in the
camera’s power source. If video from one or more cameras is distorted, we
recommend you disable line lock on the camera as your first troubleshooting step.
z If a video distribution amplifier is installed between the video source and the DVR,
do not set the output video level above 1 Vp-p.
To connect each video input:
1. Connect a coaxial cable to the camera or other analog video source.
2. Connect the coaxial cable to the video in connector on the rear panel.
Please refer to Figure 3-1 for more information.
NOTE:
20
You need to use a BNC installation tool to connect coaxial cables to the rear panel.

You can connect the DVR with POS or Keyboard through RS232.
With POS system, the DVR can communicate through RS232 and network. For the POS
system, the DVR can integrate the text content and even search the record through the
info.
The series DVR also support NKB operation. You can operate the DVR from the
keyboard controls instead of using the control pad on the front panel of the unit.
To connect a NKB keyboard to the DVR:
1. Assemble the KBD keyboard according to the instructions in its accompanying
installation manual.
26
2. Connect the KBD keyboard into one of the RS232 ports on the DVR or through
network.

When the DVR receives a camera control command, it transmits that command up the
coaxial cable to the PTZ device. RS485 is a single-direction protocol; the PTZ device
can’t return any data to the unit. To enable the operation, connect the PTZ device to the
RS485(A,B) input on the DVR. Since RS485 is disabled by default for each camera, you
need to enable the PTZ settings first. This series DVRs support multiple protocols such
as Pelco-D, Pelco-P.
To connect PTZ devices to the DVR:
1. Connect RS485 A,B on the DVR rear panel.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the proper pins in the connector on the camera.

Appendix A HDD Capacity Calculation
Calculate total capacity needed by each DVR according to video recording (video
recording type and video file storage time).
Step 1: According to Formula (1) to calculate storage capacity qi that is the capacity of
each channel needed for each hour, unit Mbyte.
qi = d i ÷ 8 × 3600 ÷ 1024
(1)
In the formula: d i means the bit rate, unit Kbit/s
Step 2: After video time requirement is confirmed, according to Formula (2) to calculate
the storage capacity mi , which is storage of each channel needed unit Mbyte.
mi = qi × hi × Di
(2)
In the formula:
hi means the recording time for each day (hour)
Di means number of days for which the video shall be
kept
Step 3: According to Formula (3) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is
needed for all channels in the DVR during scheduled video recording.
c
qT = ∑ mi
(3)
i =1
In the formula: c means total number of channels in one DVR
Step 4: According to Formula (4) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is
needed for all channels in DVR during alarm video recording (including motion
detection).
c
qT = ∑ mi ×a%
(4)
i =1
In the formula:a% means alarm occurrence rate
