Chapter 13 Hardware Decode Control
If the video/audio decoding card is installed in the computer, the user can double click the “Hardware Decode
Preview” option to enter the decode preview interface and realize the output of network video signal from the
dome/camera and display it on TV wall through the decoding card.
13.1 Hardware Decode Configuration
Before hardware decode on TV Wall, user needs to configure the card output and window division mode, or else it
will use the default decode mode.
Click key and then on the right to enter the configuration interface.
The decoding card installed in the PC can be recognized and initialized automatically as iVMS software starts up, and
the information will be displayed in the decoding card info area. The icon means which video output of the
decoding card will be used to duplicating by the icon.




The area descriptions are as follows:
User Manual of iVMS-4000(v2.03.07)
111

Area Instruction

Configuration Area: Configure the Video Output Standard, Decode Mode and Consumption Mode.

Decoding Card Info Area: Show the information of the decoding cards and channels.

Output Window Area: Configure the output mode of decoding channels.

Window-division Mode Selection Area: Select window-division mode.
13.2 Hardware Decode Mode Configuration
Before preview, user should configure the hardware decode parameters in the Configuration Area:
Configuration Description
Video Output Standard Select the video output standard to PAL or NTSC.
Decode Mode Select the decode mode to “Factory default”, “Preview On, TV Wall On” or “Preview
Off, TV Wall On”.
Odd Mode
When the Odd Mode is enabled by clicking the checkbox to , the alarm pictures can
be outputted by decode card to TV wall after configuration in Alarm Link interface.
(Enter “Setup”¬ ”Alarm link” to set the alarm link type to “Pop up image when alarm
occurs”, which will allow the iVMS software to output the video through decode card
on TV wall when there is alarm.)
Consumption Mode User can enable the Consumption Mode to decode the stream from DS-9000 and
DS-8100 series DVR.
Note:
1. The selected video output standard must be the same with that of DVR and TV wall, or else the video image
displayed on TV wall will become abnormal.
2. When the Odd Mode is enabled, the first channel of the first decode card will be used for outputting the alarm
pictures and cannot be configured or modified any more.
3. When the Consumption Mode is enabled, it is allowed to decode stream from DS-9000 and DS-8100 series DVR. If
the resolution is selected to 4CIF, the number of decoding channels will be halved.

For MDI card:
When the resolution of all video images is set to CIF resolution, the maximum number of decoding channels is: 4
channels by each DS-4002MDI card, and 8 channels by DS-4004MDI card.
Decode Mode Description
Factory Default
Each DS-4101HDI card is capable of decoding 1 channel, each DS-4002MDI
card decoding 2 channels, and each DS-4004MDI card decoding 4 channels and
so forth.
TV wall on & Preview on
Both of the video images from the play window and TV wall of iVMS software
are decoded by decode card. The decode channel must be configured in the
hardware decode configuration interface.
TV wall on & Preview off
The video images from the TV wall are decoded by decode card, while the
video images from the play window are decoded by CPU.
User Manual of iVMS-4000(v2.03.07)
112

When the resolution of all video images is set to 4CIF resolution and the Consumption Mode is disabled, the
maximum number of decoding channels is: 2 channels by each DS-4002MDI card, and 4 channels by DS-4004MDI card.
When the resolution of all video images is set to 4CIF resolution and the Consumption Mode is enabled, the
maximum number of decoding channels is: 1 channel by each DS-4002MDI card, and 2 channels by DS-4004MDI card.
For HDI card:
Each DS-4101HDI card is capable of decoding 1 channel at 1080P/1080I/UXGA/XVGA resolution; 2 channels at 720P
resolution; 3 channels at SVGA resolution; or 4 channels at 4CIF/VGA or lower resolution.
Note: Do not output more than 4 channels at CIF or 2 channels at 4CIF resolution from the DS-4002MDI card;
and do not output more than 8 channels at CIF or 4 channels at 4CIF resolution from the DS-4004MDI card.
13.3 Decode Output Mode Configuration
If the MDI card is used, the video output mode is selected to CVBS mode by default, and no configuration is
required.
If the HDI card is used, user can enter the “HD card video output mode configuration” interface and select the video
output mode to CVBS, DVI, HDMI, VGA or YPbPr from the drop-down menu.
Select the resolution and then click Save to complete settings.




13.4 Hardware Decode Output Window Configuration














The “output window panel” has a multi-window
division according to the total MDI card BNC number.
One window is related to one BNC.
Take one DS-4004MDI card for example, there are
4 BNC outputs and the “output window panel” will
show you 4 windows division. The play window is
named as 01-01, 02-01, 03-01 and 04-01.
User Manual of iVMS-4000(v2.03.07)
113




















Note: If the default mode is selected, then each decoding
channel outputs one single image and the division mode is invalid.
13.5 Hardware Decode Preview

After configuration, click “Preview” key
and select “Hardware Preview” to enter the
hardware decode interface.
Select one window on “output window panel” and
click the window division button to select a window
division on this BNC output.
For example, if we select the first window 01-01 and
then divide it into 4 windows, then the 4 windows will be
named as 01-01, 01-02, 01-03, and 01-04.
Tick the check box of to , and then
the specified channel will be decoded and displayed
on the current window at D1 resolution.
User Manual of iVMS-4000(v2.03.07)
114


The basic operations of hardware preview are the same with the software decode. Please refer to sections 5.1-5.5
for more details.



13.6 Secondary Output of Hardware Decode
The MD card can output the decoded images twice. Take 4002MD card for example, one 4002MD card can decode 4
channels CIF images, assume they are channel01, channel02, channel03, and channel04; if one decoding channel is set
as 4 divisions and separately display channel01, channel02, channel03, and channel04, then the other decoding channel
can only support one division and select one decoding channel to output the image. The descriptions above are defined
as secondary output.

Click to start decoding, and
meanwhile, the preview windows layout
will switch to the layout which is set in
“output window panel”.
The windows beyond the limited
maximum decoding channels will not be
displayed.
Enter hardware decode configuration interface, and tick
the channel that set as secondary output and the channel
status will become
Right click the decoding video window
division, and user can select the audio output
channel of the hard decoding card.
For example, for 4004MDI card which can
decode 8 channels at CIF resolution, the first 4
channels’ audio output can select “Open Card 1
Audio 1” and “Open Card 1 Audio 2”, and the last
4 channels’ audio output can select Open Card 1
Audio 3” and “Open Card 1 Audio 4”.

outputted by decode card to TV wall when there is alarm occurring.
To enable this function:
1. The exception handle of the device must be select to “Notify Surveillance Center”;
2. The alarm arming must be configured for the device in the preview mode.
3. Enter “Setup”¬ ”Alarm link” to set the alarm link type to “Pop up image when alarm occurs”.
