Overview
The Compact Network Video Recorder - Alarm Server 3000
(NVR-AS) is a standalone video and audio recorder. It contains a
removable disk, which allows you to store recordings and play
them back at a later date. It provides a powerful and integrated
recording and playback system for video and audio from
cameras, transmitters, and receivers.
Each NVR-AS in a system can record from up to 10 cameras or
transmitters while simultaneously playing back up to 5
recordings, all at full frame rate. The NVR-AS is managed and
configured by the Control Center application. Video can be
played back to PCs, analog monitors, and standard VCRs.
The NVR-AS allows you to do the following:
Record video and audio streams from IndigoVision 8000
(MPEG4) units, IndigoVision 9000 (H.264) units, and
IndigoVision 10000 (HD) units configured as transmitters; this
can be on-demand, time scheduled, or event driven
Play back video and audio streams to IndigoVision 8000
(MPEG4) units, IndigoVision 9000 (H.264) units, and
IndigoVision 10000 (HD) units configured as receivers, or
compatible PC software clients

sequence. When the activity light (2nd from left as viewed
from front) is regularly flashing the boot sequence is
complete, and the NVR-AS is ready.
9

NVR-AS Power Off Sequence


1 To disconnect the device, press the Suspend/Resume button
on the front, or click the Shutdown button on the Diagnostics
web page.
2 Wait for both the CPU and Alarm LEDs on the front panel to
change from solid on, to flashing.
3 Remove the mains power from the power supply unit.
4 After removing mains power, remove the DC power
connector from the NVR-AS.

NVR-AS Usage
The removable disk offers a flexible solution for recording and
storing video footage. There are three main ways in which you
can use the removable disk:
Archiving
You can store a disk as an archive. If you intend to do this,
you must calculate when the disk will become full and
ensure that it is replaced. You should also protect all the
recordings to make the disk read-only before you archive it
(see Protecting Recordings on page 27).
For more information on removing and replacing disks, see
Using the Removable Disk on page 25
Reusing the same disk
If you do not need to store archive footage, you can use a
single removable disk and record over old recordings. To do
this, you should ensure that the appropriate disk space
management regime is in force, for example, by setting up
recording jobs to record at specific times.
Recordings are automatically deleted when remaining disk
space falls under a set threshold. In addition, you can specify
that recordings should be deleted once they reach a certain
age (see Chapter 3 for more information).
10

Removing evidence of an incident


You may need to remove a disk containing footage of an
incident that has occurred for evidential purposes, and
replace it to continue normal recording. Before removing the
disk, you should ensure that all recordings on the disk are
protected (see Protecting Recordings on page 27).
For more information on removing and replacing disks, see
Using the Removable Disk on page 25
11

Configuration
You can configure your NVR-AS using the Web Configuration
pages or a serial connection.

Default IP Properties
The NVR-AS devices are programmed with the default IP
properties listed in step Table 1.
Table 1 Default IP Properties

Initial Configuration
IP Address 10.5.1.10
Subnet Mask 255.0.0.0
Default Gateway 10.0.0.1

Using the Web Configuration Pages


This section takes you through the steps required to configure
your NVR-AS using the Web Configuration pages.
1 Prepare an isolated network.
2 Prepare your PC for initial device configuration.
3 Configure your NVR-AS. This includes specifying its IP
address and subnet mask.

Configuration Prerequisites
To configure your NVR-AS using the Web Configuration pages,
you require one of the following:
A CAT5 crossover cable suitable for connection between the
PC and the RJ45 connector on the NVR-AS
An isolated hub or a switch
12

Step 1: Preparing an Isolated Network


Connect your NVR-AS and the PC you are using to configure it
on their own isolated network. To do this, connect the unit to the
PC using an Ethernet crossover cable (see Figure 1.) You can
use either the Port 1 or Port 2 Ethernet interface for the
connection.

Step 2: Preparing PC for Initial Device Configuration


Each NVR-AS is supplied with the data IP address set to
10.5.1.10 and the subnet mask set to 255.0.0.0. You cannot
connect the devices to your network until you have changed
these settings to suit your network.
To change the default IP addresses of the NVR-AS, you must
first (temporarily) modify your PCs network settings.

Caution: Please note the original value of all settings that are to
be changed so that you can re-enter them when you
have completed the initial device configuration.

To change your PCs settings, use the Windows XP Network


Settings configuration application to set the PCs IP address and
subnet mask, as follows:
1 In Windows Explorer, right-click My Network Places or
Network Neighborhood, and select Properties.
2 Right-click Local Area Network and select Properties.

4 Set the IP address to an address close to the factory IP
address, for example, 10.5.1.2 and change the PCs subnet
mask to 255.0.0.0 (the same as the factory default).
5 Click OK, then OK again.

Step 3: Configuring your NVR-AS


Once you have changed your PCs network settings, you must
change the IP values of your NVR-AS from its factory defaults.
Each NVR-AS is supplied with the data IP address set to
10.5.1.10 and the subnet mask set to 255.0.0.0. You cannot
connect your device to the network until you have changed
these settings to suit your network.
To configure a device using the Web Configuration pages:

This chapter explains the following:


Changing Disks
Playing Back Recordings from an Archive Disk
Protecting Recordings
Checking a Disk
Formatting a Disk

Changing Disks
You need to replace the disk if:
the current disk is becoming full according to your
maintenance schedule
if an incident has occurred and you need to remove the disk
on which it has been recorded and insert a new one
the disk has developed a fault.
This section explains how to change disks Table 4 on page 27
provides a summary of LED activity during this process.

Warning: Disks have a warranty of 5 years, but this warranty will


be voided if the disk is removed from the caddy.
Disks are not field replaceable. Faulty disks must be
returned to IndigoVision as part of a caddy assembly.
Individual disk and caddy assemblies required as
spares or replacements can be ordered from
IndigoVision.

Note: Before removing a disk, IndigoVision recommends that


you protect the recordings on the disk to prevent
accidental deletion when it is re-inserted. For information
on protecting recordings, see Protecting Recordings on
page 27.
26

To replace the disk:


1 Press the Suspend/Resume button, or click the Shutdown
button in the Diagnostics web page once to suspend the
NVR-AS. The CPU and alarm LEDs both light solid red to
indicate that the device is suspending. Once it is suspended,
the CPU and alarm LEDs both flash together.
2 Turn the disk lock to the open position and push the release
button. The release lever opens.
3 Pull the release lever to release the disk, then remove the
disk.

Protecting Recordings
It is good practice to set all recordings on a disk to protected
status before removing a disk which is to be archived. This
means that when the disk is reinserted, recordings cannot be
accidentally deleted or recorded over.

Note: Please be aware that if you protect all recordings, you


lose the ability to identify recordings that were deliberately
protected by the user in Control Center.
To protect all recordings on a disk:
1 Enter the IP address of the NVR-AS containing the disk into
the URL field of a web browser.
28

2 Click Disk from the options on the left. The Disk Configuration
page opens.

Figure 14 Disk Configuration page


3 Click Protect All to protect all recordings and events on the
current disk.
Click Unprotect All to allow all recordings and events to be
deleted.
4 Click Submit.
29

Playing Back Recordings from an Archive Disk


You may need to review old recordings stored on an archive disk.

Warning: If you are using a single NVR-AS to record footage


and to play back archived data, you must ensure that
there are no active recording jobs or event filters on
the NVR-AS and that time-based deletion of
recordings (time and space reaping) is disabled (that
is, space reaping is enabled). If you do not, archived
footage may be deleted.
For this reason it is good practice to protect all
recordings before removing a disk which is to be
archived. For more information, see Protecting
Recordings on page 27.

To review archived recordings:


1 Enable space-based reaping in the Disk Configuration page
(see Figure 14).
2 Suspend the NVR-AS and remove the current disk as
described in Changing Disks on page 25.
3 Insert the archive disk as described in Changing Disks on
page 25
4 Press the Suspend/Resume button to resume normal
operation.
30

Troubleshooting
The following section describes actions that may be necessary
when troubleshooting.

Checking a Disk
To check the integrity of the file structure contained on the
current disk:
1 Open a DOS prompt.
2 Type telnet IP address
3 Log in as root, with password admin. (If you have set a
password to allow web access, use this instead of admin.)
4 Type diskcheck.

Warning: The diskcheck command attempts to recover errors in


the disk file structure. This may involve file deletion,
which could result in lost recordings.

Formatting a Disk
To format the current disk:
1 Enter the IP address of the NVR-AS containing the disk into
the URL field of a web browser.
2 Select Disk from the menu on the left. The Disk Configuration
page opens.
3 Click Format Disk.

Warning: All data on a disk is erased when you re-format it.
