FEATURES

 

16 Channel Multiplexer

Thanks to it's 16-channel multiplexer, the DX-TL5000E can be connected to 16 cameras. You can choose between 5 different split-screen displays - handling 16, 13, 10, 9 or 4 video feeds simultaneously - and a full-screen display. Even when using the 16-way split-screen display, the DX-TL5000E can handle 50 pictures a second from each camera. This ensures a natural-looking live video display with smooth motion.

Triplex Function

There's no need to interrupt operations just to check recorded footage. Triplex capability means that you can display live video feeds as well as previously recorded footage at the same time as the DX-TL5000E is recording. You can even archive material simultaneously. Pick any segment of the split-screen display for playback and use the jog-shuttle control to navigate.

Dual Multiplexer Output

The DX-TL5000E's dual multiplexer allows you to use two monitors, thus creating a powerful camera-monitoring setup with double split-screen capability. Live video and playback footage can be output separately to the two monitors. Alternatively, the output from a single camera can be displayed on both monitors but with a time shift - useful if you need to check many hours of video!

High Definition Recording

You can pick from 6 levels of recording quality. What appears as smooth video footage on playback is in fact recorded as a series of still pictures using JPEG2000 technology. The high efficiency of wavelet-based image compression ensures both high picture quality and a vast recording capacity: 2 terabyte of data can be stored using the 500-gigabyte internal HD capacity of the DX-TL5000E, which can also record up to 4 audio channels in PCM format using the optional DX-SC5 sound card.

Alarm Recording

Triggered by motion detection - with parameters set individually for each of the 16 cameras that can be connected to the recorder - and/or by the activation of an external alarm sensor, the DX-TL5000E retroactively initiates alarm recording between 1 second and 60 minutes (user selectable). Alarm recording starts at a point up to three minutes prior to the alarm.

Emergency Recording

Emergency recording is activated by a device, such as a panic button, attached to a terminal on the rear panel. Whatever timed or programmed settings are in effect, emergency recording takes priority, cycling through all designated camera views automatically and recording at the highest quality setting so as to capture every detail.

Long Pre-Alarm Recording

If long pre-alarm recording has been selected, emergency recording can start as early as 60 minutes prior to the emergency signal. This exclusive feature can provide ample information for later examination and analysis.

Alarm Partition

The vital data produced by alarm or emergency recording is stored in a separate, reserved partition on the hard disk. This protects the video footage from the danger of being overwritten. To increase reliability even further, another hard disk can be used to mirror data: should one of the disks fail, the data will still be safe.

GUI Menus

For both initial setup (using the automated wizard) and daily operations, the on-screen menus and USB mouse make everything so easy that you can forget the User Manual. A mouse-click on the screen will bring up the menus and, if you want, simple operating instructions. What's more, the transparency of the on-screen menus can be adjusted so as not to obscure real-time monitoring. You can also use the keys on the front panel for menu selection.

Recording Setup

Wherever possible, the setup process has been automated: if you specify the recording interval and period, recording quality will be set automatically. But you are always free to fine-tune the settings - using the timer function, for example, to make more detailed recordings for specific periods of the day, or on certain days of the week. This can be combined with motion detection. As well as more effective surveillance, this flexibility ensures more efficient use of hard disk space.

Setup Profile Management

The more you fine-tune the settings on the DX-TL5000E, the better it can serve your needs. But it also becomes more important for you to store those settings. Fortunately, it's very easy to save the complete setup profile using external media, such as a USB memory stick or CD-R disc. You can thus restore setup information at any time, but also copy profiles to other units as a quick means of cloning and customizing.

Data Archiving

Both video footage and still images can be easily archived using optical media, an internal hard disk, or an external hard disk connected to one of the 6 Serial ports (front 2, rear 4). You can define precisely what you want to copy - an entire recording or just one portion, a specific camera or time period, etc. You can even "mirror" an entire hard disk to create a backup copy.

When copying large sections to another connected or external HDD, the footage is copied in RAW format this can be played back when connected to another Mitsubishi Digital Video Recorder.

If a CD/DVD archive is crated on the DVR the payer is automatically loaded on to the CD/DVD and can be played on any Windows computer without the need for a player being installed.

Images and small sections of video can be copied to a USB Memory (1GB max size) storage device from the front of the DVR. The remote PC software PC200 can be used to schedule and down load Data via the LAN, the video is then saved in Windows format that can be burnt to a DVD/CD via the PC200 software.

Searching Recorded Footage

Simplicity extends to searching through all data recorded by the DX-TL5000E. Date-time search, start/end-point search, alarm list search - all of these are instantly available from the menus. Up to 8 bookmarks can be registered for instant retrieval. And motion detection search enables you to pinpoint when something suspicious happens, such as a file being removed from a restricted-access area.

Motion Detection Settings

Instead of investing in motion detectors, you can rely on the DX-TL5000E to perform the same function using the output of the security cameras. Image-processing firmware inside the recorder is able to pick out visible changes within a specified area covered by any camera. You can even adjust time-base sensitivity to match either fast or slow movement.

PTZ Camera Control

PTZ control (also available remotely over a network) lets you pan, tilt and zoom leading brand cameras. Using the number keys and jog-shuttle control on the DX-TL5000E, simple pick a camera and then move it as desired to get a better view of any area of interest. Operation is facilitated by use of the optional DX-KB5UE keyboard. You can also control focus, exposure, presets and auto-pan in this way.

Remote Access

The DX-TL5000E can be remotely accessed, operated and configured via a LAN or the Internet using either the built-in web server or custom software. You can thus use a laptop computer to view live camera output, for playback, or to search through recorded footage. Network connectivity adds an extra dimension to your entire security
operations.

Web Server Capability

The web server (with adjustable transmission speed to suit network bandwidth and traffic conditions) allows live monitoring, playback, searching through recorded footage, and also partial control of recorder settings. You can choose full-screen or split-screen displays, and select specific cameras. Also, e-mail alerts can be sent out automatically to ensure rapid response in an emergency.

Software (DX-PC200)

Offering an alternative and very powerful means of remote access, DX-PC200 software enables network-mediated configuration of virtually all DX-TL5000E settings as well as full control of its operation. This software offers many options, such as adjusting recording quality and recording rate, changing programmed recording times, SSL encoding and power on/off.

High Capacity Storage

The DX-TL5000E can be equipped with up to 4 internal hard disks, while the optional DX-ZD6UE HDD extension units can house 2 hard disks each. This means that a configuration with four 750 GB internal HDs and the maximum of 14 DX-ZD6UE units, each with two 750GB HDs, would provide a total of 24 terabytes - sufficient to store high-quality, full-rate video footage for extended periods of emergency recording. The theoretical maximum is up to 34 terabytes - enough storage for even the most extensive security system.

Cascade Connections

If you want to cover a very large facility from one location without requiring a large investment, you can make use of cascade connections between as many as 16 DX-TL5000E units. This setup enables the centralised monitoring of up to 256 security cameras using a single master unit or controll all the DVRs via optional keyboard DX-KB5UE.

PCI Expansion Slot

The rear panel features all of the connectors for the cameras, as well as for external sensors. You can use the PCI expansion slot to install a SCSI card and up to 6 external hard disks for additional storage, or attach the optional DX-GC5 video card for XGA output to a standard computer display.

Office Buildings

Anyone involved with the management of large office buildings will benefit from the high storage capacity and expandability of the DX-TL5000E. Multiple units can be linked via cascade connections for the monitoring and control of up to 256 cameras from a single location. Security cameras can be installed on each floor to cover corridors, lifts, doors and stairwells, with motion detection and other parameters customized for each camera.


Banks

For any financial institution, security issues demand extra priority and the DX-TL5000E is more than capable of meeting the challenge. As well as offering customizable motion detection for each camera, it can be wired to a variety of external sensors and panic buttons, ensuring rapid response to alarms and emergencies. Especially important is its ability to store high-quality video footage - with up to 60 minutes of pre-alarm recording on a reserved hard disk partition for later analysis.

Distribution Centres

Increasingly distribution centres, whose original mission is to supply a network of stores, are also having to serve as nerve centres for centralised monitoring and management The DX-TL5000E, however, can help keep costs down with such features as setup profile cloning, motion detection, and PTZ camera control. 24/7 remote surveillance can be carried out efficiently by one person using the recorder's built-in web server or DX-PC200 software.
