FRAME RATE NOTICE REGARDING USER-SELECTED OPTIONS Pelco systems are capable of providing high quality video for both live viewing and playback. However, the systems can be used in lower quality modes, which can degrade picture quality, to allow for a slower rate of data transfer and to reduce the amount of video data stored. The picture quality can be degraded by either lowering the resolution, reducing the picture rate, or both.
Designated NET5400T Series encoders are available with Pelco Analytic Suites or ObjectVideo performance of Pelco cameras connected to the encoder. Pelco Analytic Suites are capable of running several analytics at the same time. Up to three behaviors can run without interfering with other encoder functions.

Secondary Stream: To select this stream, click the button next to Secondary Stream. QuickView Stream: To select this stream, click the button next to QuickView Stream.
MULTICAST A multicast transmission sends data to multiple users at the same time using one transmission stream. Each multicast user that connects to the encoder consumes no additional processing power; therefore, multicast video streams can be sent to an unlimited number of simultaneous users. Multicast transmission is recommended if the network can accommodate it since processing overhead and network bandwidth consumption negatively affect unicast transmission.
Settings Page Depending on user permissions, the Settings page allows you to manage encoder system settings, set up users and groups, and control the encoder and any cameras connected to it. NOTE: The Settings menu might not be available if the user does not have permission to access this feature. ACCESSING THE CONFIGURATION MENUS 1.

AVAILABLE CAMERA RESOLUTION Available camera resolutions depend on the capabilities of the cameras that are attached to the encoder. Refer to the documentation that accompanied the cameras for more information on camera resolution. IMAGE RATE The image rate is the number of images per second (ips) available for the video stream configuration. Available image rates are 30, 25, 24, 15, 12.5, 12, 10, 8, 7.5, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.5, 2, and 1.
PROFILE The profile defines the subset of bit stream features in an H.264 stream, including color reproduction and additional video compression. It is important that the selected profile is compatible with the recording device so that a stream can be decoded and viewed. Baseline: A simple profile with a low compression ratio.
SELECTING THE AUDIO CONFIGURATION SETTINGS To use audio with the encoder you must have an audio device connected to the accessory port located on the back of the encoder. Once the device is connected, audio can only be enabled through the primary stream. Audio and video may not be synced when viewing and listening to the primary stream through a Web browser.
Users and Groups Tab Use the Users and Groups tab to create and manage user accounts, group permissions, and to change the way the encoder manages the users and groups settings. Users User accounts can be created and added to groups to limit the permissions given to individuals logged on to the encoder. Use the features on the Users page to create, modify, or delete user accounts.
Groups Groups can be created to assign permissions to users within each group. Use the features on the Groups page to create, modify, and delete groups and permissions. Multiple permissions can be assigned to each group. Refer to the following sections for more information. •...
CREATING A NEW USER 1. Place your mouse pointer over the Users and Groups tab. 2. Select Users from the drop-down menu. 3. Click in the Username box and type a user name (2 to 23 alphanumeric characters). User names are not case-sensitive and are saved in lowercase characters.
CREATING A NEW GROUP 1. Place your mouse pointer over the Users and Groups tab. 2. Select Groups from the drop-down menu. 3. Click in the Group Name box and type a name for the group you are creating (2 to 23 alphanumeric characters). 4.
GENERAL SETTINGS FOR USERS AND GROUPS The general settings for users and groups allow you to change the way the encoder manages the users and groups settings. These settings can be managed locally on the encoder, by using a centralized server to apply changes to users and groups, or by a mixed mode using both the encoder and the server to manage and verify the user and group settings.
The “Upload JPEG to FTP Server” saves a JPEG of the activated event to a defined FTP server. Analytic Configuration Pelco Analytic Suites are offered on certain models of the NET5400T. For each behavior, you can create several custom profiles that contain different camera settings. With these profiles, you can set up different scenarios for the behavior, which will automatically detect and trigger alarms when a specific activity is detected.
SOURCES An event is a preprogrammed encoder function that is automatically activated by an event source. The encoder supports the following types of event sources: Alarm Source: The encoder supports one alarm source. The sources are the encoder inputs for external signaling devices, such as door contacts or motion detectors.
CREATING A SYSTEM EVENT SOURCE 1. Place your mouse pointer over the Events tab. 2. Select Sources from the drop-down menu. 3. Click in the Name box and type a user-friendly name (2 to 23 alphanumeric characters). 4. Select System from the Type drop-down menu. 5.
HANDLERS Event handlers are the actions that the encoder takes when an event occurs. The encoder supports the following event handlers: Send Email: Sends an email to a defined email address when an event is activated. The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server must be configured to accept the encoder’s IP address.
9. If you do not want the handler activated every time an event occurs, set filters for the handler. Select the day(s) of the week on which you want emails to be sent. Type times in the Start and End boxes for the days you have selected. Use time values in 24-hour notation (for example, use 0800 for 8:00 a.m., 1600 for 4:00 p.m.).
10. If you do not want the handler activated every time an event occurs, set filters for the handler. Select the day(s) of the week on which you want JPEGs saved to the FTP server. Type times in the Start and End boxes for the days you have selected. Use time values in 24-hour notation (for example, use 0800 for 8:00 a.m., 1600 for 4:00 p.m.).
EXAMPLE: SETTING FILTERS IN AN EVENT HANDLER If you do not want a handler activated every time an event occurs, use the filter fields to limit handlers. For example, you only want a handler activated when an event occurs after business hours. Your business is open Monday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and it is closed on Sunday.
