Tabs

Live Playback Setup

The SW has three main areas.

  • The Live tab for viewing
  • The Playback tab for viewing recorded video
  • The Setup tab for configuring views.

Panes

Panes give you access to the majority of the SW. Exactly which panes you will see depends on your task, for example on whether you are viewing live video on the Live tab or recorded video on the Playback tab.

Panes can be minimized to icons. This helps save space, and enables a better overview of the panes you use. You minimize a pane by clicking the ‘▲' in the pane's title bar. When you need to use a pane which you have previously minimized, simply click the corresponding icon in the top left corner of the SW.

View

The way in which video from your surveillance system's cameras is displayed in the DMS Lite SW is called a view. A single view may contain video from up to 64 cameras. Your SW can handle an unlimited number of views, allowing you to switch between video from various collections of cameras. Each view's layout can be customized to fit its contents.

Views can be private or shared with other users.

The SW also supports multiple windows and screens, allowing you to watch multiple views at a time on multi monitors

How Can User Rights Affect Your Use of DMS Lite

SW?

The rights of an individual user will determine the user's ability to use the DMS Lite SW features.

Basically, the administrator is able to restrict a user's rights to the following:

  • Access to each of the DMS Lite tabs: Live, Playback, and Setup
  • Ability to use features on the DMS Lite tabs
  • Ability to create views (views determine the way in which images from one or more

cameras are displayed)

  • Ability to view images from specific cameras

The ability to use various features of the DMS Lite SW may therefore vary considerably from user to user.

Views Explained

The way in which video from one or more cameras are displayed in the DMS Lite SW is called a view.

A view may contain video from up to 64 cameras, depending on the surveillance system to which you connect. The DMS Lite SW can handle an unlimited number of views, allowing you to switch between video from various collections of cameras.

The illustration to the right provides an example of a DMS Lite displaying a view, in this case with video from 10 different cameras (view is highlighted in red frame).

In order to help you maintain an easy overview when you navigate between various views in your DMS Lite SW, all views are placed in folders called groups. A group can contain any number of views and, if required, subgroups.

Difference between Private and Shared Views

Views can be private or shared:

  • Private views can only be accessed by the user who created them.
  • Shared views allow many users to share the same views.

plus sign next to the required server to view a list of available cameras.

word image 3675 33

  1. Select the required camera from the list, and drag the camera to the required position in the view. When you have dragged a camera to a position in the view, an image from the camera will—provided a connection can be established—appear in the selected position. If a connection cannot be established, for example if the surveillance system's is not on recording mode, the name of the camera will be displayed in the selected position.
  2. Repeat for each camera required in the view.

Tip: If you want to use all of the cameras under a server, you may simply drag the required server link to the view; this will automatically place all of the server's cameras in the view from the selected position onwards. Make sure a sufficient number of positions are available in the view.

Adjusting View Properties

In the Setup tab's view Properties pane, you are able to adjust osd and camera view.

Maintain Image Aspect Ratio

If the check box is selected, images will not be stretched to fit the size of the camera position. Rather, images will be displayed with the aspect ratio (height/width relationship) with which they have been recorded.

word image 3675 34 When viewing images with their original aspect ratio, you may see horizontal or vertical black bars appearing around the images from some cameras.

word image 3675 35 word image 3675 36 If the check box is cleared, images will be stretched to fit the position in the view; this may lead to slightly distorted images, but you will avoid any black bars appearing around the images.

Example: The same image viewed with Maintain Image,

Aspect Ratio selected (left) and cleared (right)

OSD settings (All views)

Show title bar: Displays a title bar located in the top of each camera position. The title bar helps users quickly identify camera name, Recording Status and live indicator.

Show indicator: Displays a blinking green indicator in the title bar when displayed on the Live tab. The indicator changes state every time a new image is received from the camera, an effect which makes it easy to see that video is live. Often, it is evident from the video itself that it is live, but the live indicator can be advantageous at times when not much is happening in the camera's area of view.

Show icon: Displays a camera icon in the top of each camera.

Show name: Displays a camera name in the top of each camera.

Show resolution: Displays the current image resolution at the bottom of each camera.

Viewing Live Video

word image 3675 43 You view live video on the DMS Lite Live tab. When you select the DMS Lite Live tab, the SW will connect to the surveillance system server, and display live images from the cameras in the selected view.

Tip: The SW supports use of multiple windows. This is especially useful if your computer has more than one physical display attached.

Live Video Is Not Necessarily Recorded

Even though you can see live video from a given camera, the video stream from the camera is not necessarily being recorded.

This is actually one of the benefits of an IP-based digital surveillance system: Unlike old-style analog surveillance systems, where everything was usually recorded on a tape regardless whether it was relevant or not, an IP-based digital surveillance system allows much more targeted recording.

Targeted recording frees security personnel, investigators, etc. from having to go through seemingly endless amounts of recordings in order to find a particular incident. Instead, the reduced amount of recordings.

Basically, live video streams from cameras pass through the surveillance system server. When required, the video stream is saved (recorded) on the server; when not required, the video stream is simply discarded. Video streams are typically saved on the server (recorded) either

• According to a schedule (example: every morning from 10.00 to 11.30)

– and/or –

• Whenever the surveillance system detects special events (examples: motion generated by a person entering a room; a sensor registering that a window is being opened; input from users).

The surveillance system server's recording settings are determined by your surveillance system administrator. However, as a DMS Lite SW user, you can also start recording while viewing live video.

Tip: When viewing live video on the DMS Lite Live tab, you can quickly verify whether the video stream from a camera is being recorded: Look at the yellow bar immediately above the camera's images. If the video stream from the camera is being recorded, the bar will display Rec. Note that you may occasionally see the Recording letters for short periods only. This is because cameras may have been configured to only when there is motion, when a door is open, or similar, which can lead to many short periods of recordings.

What is the difference between optical and digital zoom?

With optical zoom, a camera's lens elements physically move to provide the required angle of view. You cannot use optical zoom when viewing recorded video, simply because you cannot move the camera's lens retroactively. With digital zoom, the required portion of an image is enlarged by cropping the image and then resizing it back to the pixel size of the original image—a process called interpolation. Digital zoom thus simulates optical zoom, but the digitally zoomed portion will have a lower quality than the original image. Digital zoom works equally well on live and recorded video.
