User Manual

1 Introduction

 

 

1.1 Summarization

Thank you for choosing our digital video capture cards.

The QSDT8PCRC 8 Channel cards use software H.264 compression format, and enable a maximum of 16 channels real-timesurveillance in CIF resolution. Our cards are mature andcost-effectiveproducts that should be your ideal choices. They enable synchronous audio and video compression and transmission along with their powerful compression rate and network transmission function. They are widely used in banks, intelligent communities, traffic management units, medical systems, educational systems, armed forces and so on.

This manual is suitable for SuperDVR 6.3, which supports QSDT8PCRC cards.

In this manual, you will learn how to install the hardware and driver (software), and how to setup the systems on this range of products. Please make sure your operations with the products are strictly in accordance with the manual, to maintain the stability of the digital surveillance systems.

The following are standard functions of these products:

Schedule record mode

Users can choose any period in a day to record and set up record modes, i.e. sensor alarm record, motion detection record, manual record, Schedule Record.

Motion detection mode

Motion detection areas are adjustable with a maximum 16 areas for each channel. Users can also set motion detection sensitivity for each channel. The system begins to record only when motion is detected is detected on the channel and after motion stops it will stop recording after a certain time period, which is adjustable by users.

Sensor alarm record mode

The system has an external alarm which enables the system to support alarm input and output.

Recycling record mode

Users can set recording storage sequence for HDD partitions. The recording storage will automatically switch to the next partition when the current one is full. If all the partitions are full and recycling record mode is enabled, the oldest recorded data will be covered by new data. Users can also set HDD minimum storage alarm. Then once the present storage space is less then the minimum storage and recycling record mode is not

integrative cameras, including pan, tilt, zoom, focus and iris adjustment for

 

P.T.Z devices. Supports preset points and auto scout.

 

 

User management

 

 

 

 

Different users have different rights, user names and passwords, to

 

 

ensure

system security.

1.2 System Requirements

 

 

 

 

NOTE: If recorded disk partition’s format is FAT32 and the system has

 

 

run for a long time, the system will create a lot of data fragments that

SuperDVR & QSDT8PCRC Cards

 

 

 

 

may result in system running slowly. It’s recommended to run a disk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

User Manualdefragmenter every 10 to 30 days. We strongly suggest that you use

 

 

NTFS format for recording disk partition.

3.1.3 Connect Audio Signal

For QSDT8PCRC, connect the audio input device to the microphone connector on the motherboard.

Before installing the Video Capture Card hardware in PCI port of the motherboard, make sure you’ve installed Microsoft DirectX 9.0 or later. Then turn on the computer, the system will display ‘Found new hardware’.

NOTICE: Just click ‘Cancel’ and ignore the pop-upmessage.

Insert the CD that contains H.264 series capture card driver into the CD tray, and run Setup.exe program to install the driver. The default installation path is ‘C:\Program Files\SuperDVR’.

NOTICE: If you get the error message “Can’t find card” when running the SuperDVR software, try restarting the computer.

4.3.1 Record Modes

 

 

According to different record triggering methods, video capture cards offer

users 4 different record modes:

Schedule record mode (timer)

Manual record mode

Motion Detection record mode

Sensor Alarm record mode

Motion Detection record mode and Sensor Alarm record mode are called

Alarm Record.

If users use multiple cameras to record, every camera works separately and the recorded files are also saved separately. The parameters, i.e. camera ID, record date/time, and record mode are all saved together with the recorded file.

4.3.2 Record Setup

Figure4-5Record Configuration Panel

In the ‘Record Panel’ of the Basic Configuration page, users can set all the necessary parameters for recording.

1.Time Stamp

By selecting this option, the record date / time message appears in the recorded file images.

User Manual

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.3.4 Manual Record Mode

Manual Record mode is the most commonly used recording mode. If a special event occurs, users can select this recording mode and record immediately.

NOTICE: You can select a high frame rate for a short time manual recording, while selecting a low frame rate for long time Scheduled Record.

4.3.5 Sensor Alarm Record Mode

Users can use sensors to trigger sensor alarm recording on relative channels. At that time, the record status indicator light will turn red.

4.3.6 Motion Detection Record Mode

This will enable the system to detect image changes and begin to record by activating motion detection and motion alarm recording. For instance, somebody opens the door, and the system detects image changes from the camera and begins to record, then users can play back the recorded file and find out who opened the door. When there is no movement, the system will not record which saves system resources, and makes it easier to find recorded events. The indicator light color in the record status panel will be

yellow.

NOTICE: Users need to setup parameters in three places to enable motion detection recording.

Select ‘Motion Detection’ for desired channels in ‘Basic

Configuration’.

Configure the motion detection areas for desired channels in

‘Motion Detection Configuration’.

Configure working schedule for desired channels in ‘Schedule

Configuration’.
