Getting Started

Precautions for Proper Use of this Product

Locations of Storage and Use

Do not place this product at the following locations.

Doing so may cause this product to malfunction or break down.

Hot or cold places beyond the allowable operating temperature range (5I to 40I)

Humid places beyond the allowable operating humidity range (30%RH to 80%RH) (no condensation)

Places that emit a strong magnetic field, such as near transformers and motors

Places near devices that emit radio waves, such as transceivers and mobile phones

Places with considerable dust and sand

Places with strong vibrations

Places where water droplets may be formed, such as window sides

Places with considerable vapor and oil, such as kitchens

Places that emit radiation, X-rays, and corrosive gases

Using this unit and the cable that is connected to it near places where strong radio waves or magnetic fields (such as near radios, TVs, transformers, and monitors) are emitted may cause noises in the video images or color changes.

Handling Precautions

Do not stack the devices on one another during use.

Heat and noise from the devices may cause the unit to malfunction or break down, and lead to fire.

Do not block the ventilation holes.

Doing so may cause heat to trap inside the unit and result in fire. Do not use this unit by laying it down sideways, upside down, or at an angle.

Do not place objects on this unit.

Placing heavy objects, such as TV monitors, or objects that are bigger in size on this unit may cause it to lose balance and drop or fall, hence resulting in injuries.

Do not stand or sit on this unit.

Doing so may cause this unit to fall or break down, and result in injuries. Keep it out of the reach of young children.

Do not place objects with water (e.g., vases, flower pots, cups, cosmetic products, and chemicals) on this unit.

Water may enter this unit through the ventilation holes and result in fire or electric shock.

Do not insert objects into this unit.

Metallic or other flammable objects that enter this unit from the ventilation holes may result in fire or electric shock.

Precautions for Handling Hard Disk Drive

The distance between the head and the disk is only about 0.02 μ m when the hard disk (henceforth HDD) is reading the data. Vibration or impact that is exerted on the HDD may therefore cause the head to hit against the disk, hence causing the disk surface to dent or the disk to chip. When this occurs, data may not be properly read, or in a worse scenario, continued use in this condition may result in head crash (damage). Careful attention must therefore be paid when handling it.

Precautions During Installation and Change of Installation Location

Moving of this unit or installation work is strictly prohibited when the power of this unit is on or immediately after the power is turned off (approximately 1 minute). The HDD continues to move under its own inertia for some time after the power is disconnected, and exertion of vibration or impact during this interval may result in HDD failure. When moving this unit, wrap it using cushioning materials to protect it from external shock.

Handling Precautions

Handle this unit carefully without exerting vibration or impact on it.

Do not remove the power plug during recording or playback, or when the HDD is being accessed.

The HDD is a consumable product. Although it may vary according to the environment of use, it is recommended to replace the HDD after using for 18,000 hours in a surrounding temperature of 25I. (However, this is only a reference time and not a quaranty for HDD life span. ) For inquiries on maintenance plans and expenses, consult your nearest JVC dealers.

When installing an external hard disk, we recommend the use of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to ensure the stable operation of the system. [Connecting a UPS]

(A Page 136)

Power failure that occurs during formatting or disconnection of the HDD may affect its subsequent use even when the UPS is connected.

JVC shall not be held responsible for the compensation of losses incurred in the event that recording or playback fails due to defects in this unit or its hard disk drive.

Images recorded on the HDD will be deleted when you replace it with a new disk. Note also that recorded images may be deleted when you upgrade the software for this unit.

Clock

Use of a time server is recommended to ensure recording at an accurate time.

There may be a daily error of 10 to 20 seconds depending on the operating environment.

The clock time may vary significantly when the lithium battery level used for backup in this unit is running low.

Connect the time server to the LAN2 network.

10

Precautions when Moving this Unit

Remove all connected cords before moving

Turn off the power and remove the power plug before moving this unit. Failure to do so may cause damage on the cords, and result in fire or electric shock.

Moving of this unit or installation work is strictly prohibited when the power of this unit is on or immediately after the power is turned off (approximately 1 minute).

The HDD continues to move under its own inertia for some time after the power is disconnected, and exertion of vibration or impact during this interval may result in HDD failure.

When moving this unit, wrap it using cushioning materials to protect it from external shock.

Handle this unit carefully without exerting vibration or impact on it.

Precautions for Handling Power Cords

Do not use the supplied cords on devices other than this unit.

Do not place heavy objects on the power cord, or place it under this unit

Doing so may cause damage on the cords, and result in fire or electric shock.

Do not use cords other than those supplied with this unit

Use only power cords supplied together with this unit. Using cords with different withstanding voltage specifications or damaged cords may result in fire or electric shock.

Do not remove the power plug during recording or playback, or when the HDD is being accessed.

Maintenance

Turn off the power before performing maintenance of this unit.

Wipe this unit using a soft cloth. Wiping using thinner or benzene may cause the surface to melt or fog. When the surface is extremely dirty, wipe using a cloth that is dipped into a neutral detergent diluted with water, followed by wiping with a dry cloth.

Energy Conservation

Turn off the power of the system for safety reasons and to save energy if this unit is not to be used for a long time.

Copyright

Use of video or audio sound recorded using this unit for commercial purposes or playing them for public viewing or listening may be an infringement of the copyrights of their respective authors under the copyright law.

These video (audio) recordings shall only be restricted to personal uses, and their use without prior consent of the copyright holder is strictly prohibited under the copyright law.

Others

When there is variation in the supply voltage such as during lightning, operation of this unit may be disabled to protect the system until the supply voltage stabilizes again.

Eliminate static electricity before performing work that requires you to touch the input/output terminals, such as when installing devices.

Do not touch the rear panel of this unit when it is running as static electricity may cause it to malfunction.

When there is a large number of data recorded on this unit, such as short alarm records, a longer time may be required during search or backup. This is not a malfunction.

Data recorded from TV broadcasts or video (audio) recordings shall only be restricted to personal uses, and their use without the prior consent of the copyright holder is strictly prohibited under the copyright law.

The width of the border lines (black in color) of images on the split screen varies according to the type of input signals. This is due to the characteristics of the camera’s input signals, and is not a malfunction. The condition may also be improved by adjusting this unit. For details, consult our authorized dealers or JVC service centers.

This unit comes with a high-precision hard disk device. Be careful not to exert vibration or impact on this unit when handling it.

Exertion of vibration or impact particularly when the power is on or when the hard disk is being accessed may cause this unit to break down.

When moving this unit, do so about 1 minute after disconnecting the power supply.

Do not turn off the power switch at the rear of this unit or unplug the power cord during recording or playback, or when the hard disk is being accessed. Otherwise, it may break down.

Precautions During Master/Slave Connection of Milestone XProtect Enterprise (XPE) and this Unit

Connect only one master PC to this slave unit. Connecting multiple master computers to this slave unit may cause it to malfunction.

120 V - 240 V

Note :

Connect LAN1 to the camera network.

LAN2 to the surveillance computer network.

For details of the protocol and port number for the network cameras on the LAN1 network, refer to the network camera’s user manual.

The protocol and port number used on the LAN2 network are shown below.

Surveillance computer: HTTP 80

Mail: SMTP 25, POP 110

Time Synchronization: NTP 123

Connect NAS to the LAN1 network.

Connect the time server to the LAN2 network.

Purchasing additional camera licenses enables the VR-N1600U/ E(A) to handle simultaneous recording up to 32 channels.

For details, please consult your nearest JVC dealer.

Connect only after having turned AOFFB the power of all devices.

Set the IP address of the camera to 192.168.0.xxx. When setting the IP address of the camera to an address other than 192.168.0.xxx, you must also change the IP address of LAN1. Refer to the [Instruction Manual] of each camera for procedures to change the camera’s IP address,

26

Note :

Do not connect LAN1 to the internet. If the internet is busy or the relay equipment fails, you may not be able to save important camera images. To maintain full recording capacity, it is recommended that a dedicated network be used. Be sure to connect the LAN1 camera network to the same segment. (Do not use the address translation of NAT and NAPT etc. or a router.)

If you connect LAN2 to the internet from a surveillance computer, you will need to configure IP Masquerading.

Communication between LAN1 and LAN2 is not possible. Nor is it possible to configure a camera connected to LAN1 from the surveillance computer connected to LAN2. In order to configure a camera connected to LAN1, it is necessary to connect the computer for configuring cameras to LAN1.

LAN1 and LAN2 are incompatible with QoS. Sound may not be played normally depending on the condition of the circuit.

The default LAN1 IP address is 192.168.0.253 and the default LAN2 IP address is 192.168.1.253. To change the address, use [OS Setting] (A Page 73).

In VR-N900U, analog input circuitry is considered as a network encoder (IP video server) and the IP address is set to 192.168.201.12 by default. When altering the IP address of LAN1 and LAN2, specify an address (different segment) other than 192.168.201.0 to 192.168.201.255. Also make sure that the same segment is not specified for LAN1 and LAN2. (VR-N900U)

When a single network camera is registered with multiple units of VR-N1600U/VR-N1600E/VR-N900U, recording may not be properly completed in some cases. Camera control (e.g. PTZ control) may also become unstable. It is recommended that a single VR-N1600U/VR-N1600E/VR-N900U be used for registering one IP camera as well as for controlling PTZ operations.

Do not connect a broken hub, router or deteriorated network cable etc. Doing so may prevent the system from operating properly.

Connection to a keyboard is not recommended.

Memo :

If you see a set of crosshairs when placing your mouse pointer over the image from a PTZ camera, then you are able to control the orientation of the camera using point-and-click control on the image screen. Control of the camera on the image screen is not possible if the mouse pointer does not change to the cross shape pointer. The mouse pointer may not change to the crossshape pointer depending on the type of the PTZ camera. Control of the PTZ camera may not be possible for some PTZ cameras even though the mouse pointer changes to the cross-shape pointer. In this case, use the PTZ navigation button of the [PTZ Control] section to control the PTZ camera.

The mouse pointer does not change to the cross shape pointer for analog cameras that are connected to the network encoder (IP video server) (e.g. VN-E4).

If your mouse is equipped with a scroll wheel, you can use it to control the zoom in and out function on the PTZ camera.

When using electronic zoom feature on VN-C625U/VN-C655U, zooming will stop at the boundary between optical zoom and electronic zoom. To continue zooming, perform zoom operation again.
