44
4.3
Record
4.3.1.
Camera
“On/Off” switches “recording” on and off in each channel. If recording is not required on the selected channels, even if a
camera signal is connected, set the recording of the corresponding channel as [OFF]. This will shut off recording for the
camera without disconnecting the camera BNC cable from the DVR. Either [ON] or [OFF] can be selected. The default is
[ON].
FPS means, “Frame per second”. The system automatically calculates “Remained FPS”.
Select the resolution for the recording video.
In here, the resolution means required horizontal and vertical pixels in a page. The resolution is indicated as (horizontal) X
(vertical) pixel number. Select one setting from 352×240/288, 720×240/288, and 720×480/576. Default is 352×240/288. As
the resolution number increases, the picture quality is higher. In fact, 352×240 is VHS level and when high quality camera
is used, 720×480/576 shows DVD level picture quality. When the picture quality gets higher, the storage capacity is bigger
and the recording period will be shorter. Thus, selecting an appropriate resolution according to the situation is important.
The setting value of “Quality” directly influences the byte size per image. For example, the byte size decreases as the
quality goes lower. At low quality settings, blocking (mosaic) phenomena tends to appear, which is in result of high
compression. In contrast, blocking phenomena disappears as quality goes higher. As quality increases, the required
storage space per image increases, which leads to the shortening of total available recording period. Therefore, consider
the necessary recording period, importance of each camera image, and quality of the analog signal when setting the
recording quality.
“Auto Del”, or auto delete, means that the system will delete recorded video after the number of days set by “Auto Del” in
accordance with privacy regulation in certain country.
“Audio” can be selected for each video channel.

Note
COPY SETTINGS
Upon pressing Copy Settings button, Copy Settings popup will appear. In this popup, choose the camera the
user wants to copy from at the “FROM” field. Choose the parameters such as ON/OFF, RESOLUTION, FPS,
QUALITY, and AUDIO on the check box. Check on the check box with camera numbers to apply the copy
setting to on “TO” check box selector section.
“Auto Del” does not guarantee the number of recording days user set. For example, even though user sets
10days in “Auto Del”, if HDD space is not enough, then the system cannot record up to 10days.
This feature is not to keep the recorded video for a certain number of days set by user.
The system will keep video from August 11th to August 20th for 10days. All other video recorded before August 11
45
will be deleted by the system. On August 21, the system will keep video from August 12 to August 21 for 10days.
Note
The storage capacity for the same image will be different. Image per byte is ratio to the image dimensions
(horizontal x vertical), thus 720×240/288(2CIF) is twice the size of 352×240/288(CIF) and 720×480/576(D1)
takes about 4 times the storage capacity. Therefore, when high resolution is selected for the same period, the
storage capacity taken up will be larger and the storage period will be shorter on the same Hard disk capacity.
Note
For the same resolution, frame per byte size will vary according to various reasons such as the recorded picture
quality setting, movement, complexity of the image, and noise. Therefore, the total recording period will differ
hugely according to the specific image conditions.
 352×240/288 : Standard Quality Standard 1~5KB
 720×240/288 : Standard Quality Standard 5~10KB
 720×480/576 : Standard Quality Standard 10~20KB
“Quality” by 40(low), 60(standard), 80(high), and 100(highest) makes frame size different by around 30% in each
level.

UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) and Auto Private IP Setup (NAT Traversal)
UPnP stands for Universal Plug and Play, which is a relatively new technology that indicates a universal protocol for
widespread plug-and-play devices to ease the network implementation. When a PC and a DVR both installed the UPnP
function, the PC can automatically recognize the DVR in the same local area network. The advantage of this function is
that a PC can connect to the DVR directly by clicking on the icon representing the DVR in <My Network Places> folder as
shown below.
Simply double click on the desired icon. Then, it will open an internet browser that connects to the DVR via the remote
control software as shown below. Please type in your User ID and Password to login and click ‘Connect’ button to connect.
Auto Private IP Setup (NAT Traversal)
The UPnP NAT Traversal function will help to automatically setup a router if the DVR connects to the internet via a router.
When a PC connects to a DVR, which is not in the same local area network, a real IPO address and corresponding port
number is required. However if the DVR is behind a router, the communication between the PC and the DVR will be
transmitted back and forth by the router. The router will need to setup port mapping (Port Forwarding) before images from
the DVR is remotely viewed on the PC. For each individual DVR, the setting needs to be done individually.
If the DVR has UPnP NAT traversal function, the setting of the router will be done automatically when it is enabled.
Just check ‘Auto IP (NAT Traversal)’ check box in the UPnP setup menu. Then it will take care of Auto IP detect by itself.
Note
The system transfers video images at real-time over the network even during no record.
For example, user can monitor live video even when motion has not occurred during motion detection mode.
Note
It may take a few minutes for the system to start working if the network configuration in DHCP mode and the
DHCP connection cannot be made if there is no physical network connection.
Note
The maximum number of simultaneous connection is 5 times(3 times for 16 Ch model) the number of DVR
channel, which means 20channel connections for 4channel model, 40channel connections for 8channel model,
and 48channel connections for 16channel model.
For example, 3 people can connect to a 16channel model DVR at the same time watching all 16 cameras, or 48
people can connect to 16channel model DVR at the same time watching only a specific single camera.

-Technical Tips1. If your DW-VMAX is connected behind the router be sure to login to your router to
open TCP/IP:port,Mobile:Port;Web: port and forward them to the DVR IP address
2. If the [DNS SERVER] IP address is using an internal IP(Example:192.168.0.2 or
10.10.10.2),
3.
DDNS registration information might be blocked, due to Router setting error or network
security reasons in DHCP setting. Therefore, using a public DNS is recommended instead
of using an internal IP.
4. You may ask your internet service provider to get DNS server IP address.
