Chapter 3. Installation

3.1 Installation & Connection

3.1.1 Basic connection and operation Camera connection

Connect the DVR and CCTV cameras using coaxial cable as in the following figure.

- The cameras’ video input type must be one and only of NTSC or PAL. Both types should not be used together.

- Automatic settings for 75Ω terminal resistance

While terminal resistance is generally 75Ω with only one video input port in use, when the lower video input port is also connected, the settings automatically separate into 75Ω terminal resistance while the status is Hi-Z (high impedance).

- The video input type (NTSC/PAL) is automatically recognized when the device is operation.

When multiple cameras are used, the video input type is taken from the first camera detected starting from channel 1 and progressing sequentially to channel 16. Monitor connection

Monitors connect to the DVR unit using a video cable as shown in the following figure.


Install Manual Audio connection

Audio equipment connects to the DVR unit using RCA audio cables or D-SUB as shown in the following figure. SVR-480 does not support D-SUB audio.

Refer to the following figure when connecting D-SUB. The audio inputs are pin numbers 5 ~ 16. Power connection & operation

Connect the power cable as shown in the following figure.

- The DVR unit will boot automatically when the power is connected.

- To turn the DVR unit off, press the power button for 5 seconds, then choose “Yes” when the power-off dialog appears.

- To turn the power on again, press the power button.

Serial Settings

A total of four serial ports are available for the DVR. Two are RS-232C(Com1, Com3) and the other two are RS-422/485(Com2, Com4).

The Serial Port settings are available under Communication > Remote.

The following options are provided for the Serial Port settings.


Select PTZ.

To control the PTZ operation via serial port, select PTZ in the Device options, and then set up a serial port. To control the PTZ operation via coax protocol, you do not need to set up this option.


Install Manual


Select a serial port.


Select a connected PTZ device.

Camera ID

Enter the ID of the selected camera.


Select one from among Com2 to 4.

To use RS-232, select Com3. For RS-422 or 485, select Com2 or 4.

Baud rate/Parity/Stop Bit/Data Bit

Enter the same settings as the ones for the PTZ device.

Idle Time

Activate or disable PTZ Home, and set up a standby duration for the device before moving to

PTZ home.


The Coax Protocol option does not support normal PTZ protocols, but rather supports the Pelco

Standard and Extended Protocols.

The standard protocol supports basic PTZ functions such as PTZ and presets. The extended protocol supports more expansive features such as menu control and video playback in addition to the basic PTZ functions.

To use this option, a PTZ device must be embedded with a coax standard or extended protocol.


Install Manual


Select Coax.


Select Pelco or Pelco Extended according to the coax protocol type of Pelco camera.

AD Dome does not support menu control, Presets or AUX when setup with a coax protocol.

Idle Time

(2) Set text and relations options.

Some external devices may not be recognized. Please consult your product distributor prior to installation. USB device connections

The USB ports are mainly used to copy video data to supported external USB storage devices like USB memory sticks (copies data within an hour).


Supported USB devices conform to the following specifications.

USB Spec. Ver. 2.0 types

Output voltage/current

Max. 200mA per DC 5V / Port

Install Manual

Install Manual

[AVI Copy]

Some USB storage devices may require additional software and drivers. Care should be taken in these cases as the DVR may not recognize some USB products like this. If copied files do not playback on another computer, double check that proper playback software and codecs are installed. Video in/out connections

The DVR video input/output are “Loop through" and detect connection status automatically to set terminal resistance.

For example, when only video input is connected, terminal resistance is internally set to 75Ω.

However, when video input and output are connected, terminal resistance is set to Hi-Z. As such, when input and output are connected, the external output device should have its resistance set to 75Ω.


Install Manual Audio in/out connections

There are 4 RCA audio in and 12 D-SUB audio in.

All 16 audio sources can be monitored through a single output.

The 12 D-SUB audio inputs use terminals 5 ~ 16 and are connected as shown in the following figure.

3.3.4 External Storage connections

One eSATA external storage device can be connected through the eSATA port in the back of the

DVR unit for a maximum of 8TB of storage space.

The eSATA port only supports the “SVS-5E” eSATA external HDD from Samsung

Techwin. eSATA device connection

Use the eSATA port in the back of the DVR unit to connect your SVS-5E external HDD. External storage requires its own power source as the DVR unit does not supply power to it.

Since some external devices may not be recognized if connected with the DVR unit on, the following procedure should be followed.


Install Manual

1. Turn DVR power OFF.

2. Connect external device and eSATA interface cable.

3. Turn external device power ON.

4. Turn DVR Power ON.

Refer to the appendix in the back of the manual for information on supported HDDs. Registering & formatting HDDs
