In this chapter: Product overview .
  • Page 10: Product Overview

    User Manual Product overview Legend IP™ is a line of advanced PTZ domes that stream digital video. Digital video is easier to transmit, share, and store than conventional analog video signals. Digital video systems also integrate well into most communications and media networks and are easily operated from software applications that manage digital video, such as GE’s SymSecure™...
  • Page 11: System Configurations

    Figure 1. Main menu of the graphical programming interface System configurations Digital Legend IP domes can be used in a variety of digital and analog system configurations. They have both digital and analog connections for video and data. They also still maintain their built-in receivers that decode analog commands originating from a compatible controlling devices, such as a keypads or ASCII control software.
  • Page 12 A typical digital system is shown in Figure 2. In this configuration, control commands come from a software application, such as GE’s SymSecure or SymNav, instead of keypads or ASCII control software. The dome’s built-in encoders stream video to external decoders before it is transmitted to monitors, digital recorders, and alarm equipment.
  • Page 13 Chapter 1 Introduction Typical advanced analog system A typical advanced analog system is shown in Figure 3. In this configuration, control commands pass through digital recorders and alarm equipment and video is switched to various monitors. For additional details, refer to the data sheet, user manual, or application guide.
  • Page 14 Legend IP User Manual Typical basic analog system A minimum of one keypad, which is the most common controlling device, is required for operation. See Figure 4. From the keypad, an operator can pan, tilt, and zoom the camera, find presets, and start macros and ShadowTours.
