The D4 is a fully featured DVR that provides a comprehensive digital recording solution for applications requiring up to four 4 camera inputs. End-users no longer have to pay a premium for unnecessary camera channels when they require a more complete range of features and functions from their CCTV system.
Designed using DMs trademark simplicity and ease of use, the D4 offers advanced features such as serial telemetry control, enabling the user to operate market leading dome cameras via the Dedicated Micros remote keyboard; live and playback views of cameras using the included network viewing software via a PSTN modem* or a standard ethernet connection; and RAID/JBOD support allowing extra terabytes of storage to be added for months or even years of record time.
Models in the D4 range are available with a built in CD writer, providing a quick and easy way of copying digitally signed key events to CD.
These features are in addition to high quality hard disk recording that can be accessed by the user at the simple touch of one button or via powerful GOTO and event preview facilities. The D4 also offers 50PPS record performance, video motion detection and real time audio recording as standard.

SEARCH AND PLAYBACK VCR style keys offer: One touch playback. Frame advance/rewind, fast picture search and pause keys Event list, including event list filter with unique quadrant preview facility GOTO time and date Playback in quad, picture in picture and full screen
VIDEO MOTION SEARCH FACILITY Allows the user to search through hard-disk recordings for movement in a particular area of the image. The unit is then able to search back through the hard drive and create a list of activities for the user to view and archive as required. Searching can also be filtered to limit the search to user defined times and dates.
IR REMOTE CONTROL Provides the operator with front panel control of the unit including: The ability to change cameras and camera views Search using the GOTO function and review of the event list Playback of images from the hard disk
AUDIO Records and plays back a single channel of audio along with multiplexed video channel. Audio recording stored with images from camera one can be copied to an external CD-R. Audio recorded at 4 KB per second.
Connections: Mic in: 3.5mm jack socket (requires an electret/condenser microphone with a sensitivity of 50dBV or more) Line in: 47KΩ input impedance, 1V pk-pk, RCA phono socket Line out: 1V pk-pk, RCA phono socket
RECORDING Playback and record to hard disk simultaneously. Internal hard disk: 80GB Event partition and protected images: Separate area on disk can be defined to extend the storage time of alarms and events. This event partition area in Gigabytes (GB) is configured by the installer and overwrites itself when full. The system can be configured to protect images permanently from being overwritten when the global alarm is activated. The end user can also manually configure sections of recorded images to be permanently protected from overwrite, and remove permanent protection.
RAID/JBOD support We recommend that only DM approved external storage devices are used with the D4 range.
RECORD RATE Maximum record rate up to 50pps (PAL) and 60pps (NTSC)
TIMED EXPIRY Timed expiry option allows images to be held for a selected number of days. Images on the disk which are older than the number of days selected are not accessed.
EVENT COPYING Event sequences and user defined recorded sequences, together with audio from camera 1 can be saved to the internal CD-R drive of D4 (or an external CD-R* connected to the SCSI port for models without CD). The CD containing the images, the sequences and images themselves are digitally signed for authentication purposes. Playback of images from the CD is via a standard CD ROM drive. The CD playback software will autorun and does not require the installation of software on the users PC.
* Please check the website for compatible CD-R products.
DIGITAL SIGNATURE The use of digital signatures makes it possible to detect whether single image or a sequence of images have been tampered with.
D4 NETWORKING CAPABILITIES Standard Ethernet connection provides live and recorded viewing on a networked PC using DM's Network Viewer Software or via web pages using Internet Explorer. Network viewing is independent and does not affect the recording or local operation. The amount of bandwidth the D4 uses on the network can be adjusted by the bandwidth limitation option. Network Viewer software features include: Live full and quad screens. VCR style fast forward and rewind, playback and frame advance/rew. GOTO time and date and unique quadrant event review. Search and View the event log to find alarms or activity detection. File export of digitally signed images over the network. Copy single images as JPEG and sequences of images as AVI to save to PC.

NETWORK REMOTE SUPPORT Enables system adjustments to be made remotely over the network. One user may connect to the unit in a password protected admin mode that allows access to menus, as they appear on the unit themselves. System adjustments can then be made remotely over the network, such as changing the record rate, set-up of the activity grid, program presets and more without the need for a site visit.
