    External alarm inputs and auxiliary control output circuits can also be configured in the MAXPRO-Net system. When an alarm is detected by the MAXPRO-Net system, an automatic system response can be programmed to take place. These automatic responses are called MACRO SEQUENCES, which allow total flexibility of system operation for any given alarm input.
  • Page 20: System Structure

    GENERAL DESCRIPTION, CONTINUED VideoBlox Hardware is also supported by MAXPRO-Net. Refer to the VideoBlox section in this manual for more details. The MAXPRO-Net system can be structured and programmed to meet virtually any crosspoint matrix video switching design specification. SYSTEM STRUCTURE As mentioned previously, the MAXPRO-Net system is structured as a matrix video switching system, integrated with external alarm inputs and auxiliary control outputs.
  • Page 21: Video Switching Subracks

    1.2.3 Video Switching Subracks All of the available video sources (cameras etc.) are distributed across one or more video switching subracks, to construct the required video switching matrix. Depending on the system's requirements (the number of video inputs and outputs), the video switching subracks come in several fixed sizes to best suit individual applications.

    Note: Seconds are only displayed on enhanced text modules. The MAXPRO-Net Server also uses the real time clock to control some of its internal functions and decisions. For example, to enhance system automation, lights and alarms can be programmed to activate during the night and deactivate during the day.
  • Page 26: Smartext

    VIDEO TEXT INSERTION, CONTINUED Post-text Post text inserters are connected between a video output channel and its respective monitor. They are used to identify the currently selected camera and display time/date, current operator name, and other system information. Pre-text Pre-text inserters are sometimes used when cameras need to be recorded onto a dedicated video recorder.
  • Page 27: Monitor Blanking

    Such a case would arise when a video system has a dedicated keyboard controlling different areas of a building (ground floor, car park, etc.) or if the single MAXPRO-Net system may be doing the job of several video switching applications.
  • Page 28: Channel Access By Keyboards

    SOURCE GROUPING, CONTINUED Over fifty (0 99) source groups are available. Each video input is allocated to only one of these source groups. During commissioning, each video output channel may be allocated to some or all of the fifty groups for selection. At least one source group must be allocated. Note: Only cameras from the allocated source groups (for a given video output channel can be selected and displayed on that video output channel.
  • Page 29: Prioritizing Operators

    Priority 0 always has an EXCLUSIVE access right over every other priority code (with the exception of another priority 0). The following table illustrates how the MAXPRO-Net system handles conflicts in operator priorities when selecting monitors: Table 2.1.

  • Page 32: Video Scan Sequences

    2.16 VIDEO SCAN SEQUENCES A Scan Sequence is a list of camera selections. This camera list, or scan sequence, is used to automatically display every camera in the sequence on a specific monitor. Each camera selection will remain displayed for a duration defined by the 'Dwell Time' setting of each scan sequence.
  • Page 33: System Macro Library

    (selection of cameras, VCRs, etc.) will take place. The actual system response for any given alarm input is programmed in its macro sequence at commissioning. MAXPRO-Net MaxMon Utility can be used to disable and re-enable an alarm input. This is sometimes required for night and day system operation, where some alarms must be ignored during the day.
  • Page 34: Camera Fail Alarms

    2.21 ALARMS IN GENERAL, CONTINUED As well as external alarm inputs, other internal system alarms that can be made available are: • Camera fail alarms • PTZ site fail alarms 2.21.1 Camera fail alarms In some video systems, the cameras are automatically monitored to check for camera malfunction and/or cut-cabling etc.
  • Page 35: Alarm Display Grouping

    2.22 ALARM DISPLAY GROUPING When an alarm state occurs, it is usually prompted to the attention of the system operators via a flashing text message displayed on one (or more) of the video monitors. Note: Usually only particular monitors are used to display the alarm text messages.
  • Page 36: Auxiliary Control Outputs

    They are controlled by pre-programmed macro sequences assigned to alarms, general purpose system macros, or maybe special function keys on the keyboards. The MAXPRO-Net system supports a maximum of 9999 auxiliary control outputs. Some possible uses of auxiliary control outputs are: •...
  • Page 37: Section 3: Concepts

    CONCEPTS THE MAXPRO-Net CROSSPOINT MATRIX VIDEO SWITCHING SYSTEM The MAXPRO-Net is a crosspoint matrix video switching system; not just a video switcher. It integrates all video equipment to provide a completely automated system that can be operated from the MAXPRO-Net keyboards using simple key presses.
  • Page 38: Cascading

    CASCADING In section 1.2, System structure, the terms cascading and combining were introduced. The next two sections explain these two concepts in detail. Before proceeding, a detailed understanding of how the video inputs are distributed across a subrack is essential. The following diagram (Figure 3.1), clearly illustrates this point.
  • Page 39: Figure 3.2: Cascading Of Two Video Switching Subracks

    CASCADING, CONTINUED Figure 3.2: Cascading Of Two Video Switching Subracks The video outputs from the first subrack get fed into the corresponding cascade inputs of the second subrack. Each slot in the first subrack, is able to select any of its own 32 video inputs.
  • Page 40: Figure 3.3: Selecting Video Input 45 To Channel 2

    CASCADING, CONTINUED Video output from each slot in the first subrack, can be any of its 32 video inputs. Since this output is connected to the cascade input of the second subrack, each slot of the second subrack can, also view any of the 32 video inputs of the first subrack. Video output devices (monitors etc.) connect to the output of the last video switching subrack.
  • Page 41: Figure 3.4: Selecting Video Input 3 To Channel 2

    CASCADING, CONTINUED Monitor 2 would then display the video signal from video input 45. Channel 2 in the first subrack is not required when selecting a video input in the second subrack. Example Of Selecting Video Input 3 Figure 3.4: Selecting Video Input 3 To Channel 2 When video input 3 is selected, channel 2 of the second subrack can select this video input which is not physically connected to it, through its cascade input, as illustrated in figure 3.4.
  • Page 42: Combining

    COMBINING To maintain a high quality of video signal, larger configurations are constructed using ‘Combining’. Figure 3.5: Combining By using the method of combining, a video system can have a maximum of 1280 video inputs with 256 output channels in a single full matrix. When selecting any input, the video signal only passes through two video switching subracks.
  • Page 43 COMBINING, CONTINUED Connecting Subracks In a combining configuration (figure 3.5), video signals (e.g. cameras) are connected to the video inputs of the pre-selection subracks. Pre-selection of those video signals are fed out to the combiner subracks. In the combiner subrack, the video input (fed out of the pre-selection subrack) is then selected to the output for display on the monitor.
  • Page 44: Figure 3.6 Selecting Video Input 3 To Channel 1

    The following is an example of video input 3 being selected onto monitor 1, which is connected to channel 1 of the combiner subrack. If monitor 1 selects video input 3, the MAXPRO-Net Server selects every video-switching module in channel 1 (highlighted in figure 3.6) of the pre-selection subracks (A, B and Figure 3.6 Selecting Video Input 3 To Channel 1...
  • Page 45: Text Insertion

    COMBINING, CONTINUED Since monitor 1 selected video input 3, the video switching module in channel 1 of the combiner subrack would select the video signal from input A and put it on its output. A similar procedure takes place when a monitor from any other channel (of the combiner subrack) selects a video input from any of the other two pre-selection subracks.
  • Page 46: Figure 3.7. Cascading Configuration With Post-text Insertion

    TEXT INSERTION, CONTINUED Figure 3.7. Cascading Configuration With Post-text Insertion Rev. B 3-10 HMXMC001013 31-Mar-06...
  • Page 47: Figure 3.8: Combining With Text Insertion

    TEXT INSERTION, CONTINUED In cascading, (figure 3.7) the text inserter modules are placed between the last video switching subrack and the monitor for each video channel and therefore, the video output from the text inserter module has text superimposed onto it before being displayed.
  • Page 48: Subrack Addressing

    SUBRACK ADDRESSING Every subrack is given a unique ID number to facilitate the correct distribution of control data to and from every module in the system. Video switching subracks support a maximum of (32) video output channels. In larger systems subracks handling a particular group of (32) channels are identified by an offset in the hundreds digit of the subrack ID number.
  • Page 49: Subrack Addressing

    SUBRACK ADDRESSING, CONTINUED Figure 3.10. Subrack IDs For 30 Output Channels Although the subrack IDs can be any number between (001 099), you should always choose a systematic method of numbering them. Rev. B 3-13 HMXMC001013 31-Mar-06...
  • Page 50: Figure 3.11: Subrack Ids For 40 Output Channels

    SUBRACK ADDRESSING, CONTINUED A System With 40 Output Channels If the video system has 40 video output channels, the IDs of the first group of subracks that support the video output channels (1 32), would range from (001 099). The IDs of the second group of subracks that support the last 8 video output channels 40), would range from (101 199).
  • Page 51: Figure 3.12: Subrack Ids For 80 Output Channels

    SUBRACK ADDRESSING, CONTINUED A System With 80 Output Channels If the video system has 80 video output channels, there will be 3 groups of subracks present. The third group of subracks which support the remaining 16 output channels, would have IDs that range from (201 299).
  • Page 52: Networking And Trunking

    NETWORKING AND TRUNKING Networking is an adopted term used to describe several MAXPRO-Net systems working together sharing resources such as cameras, monitors, alarms, PTZ control, other equipment control and general system status information. These networked systems (called nodes) form a seamless single video environment to the operators controlling the system.
  • Page 53: Figure 3.13: Example Of Three Video Systems Networked Together

    NETWORKING AND TRUNKING, CONTINUED Figure 3.13: Example Of Three Video Systems Networked Together Some important notes regarding the above example; • A single bi-directional RS-232 data connection between the main system node and each of the satellite system nodes. • Each satellite system node is providing two (2) only video trunk lines back to the main system.
