This installation guide will help you install AXIS Camera Recorder and configure it for your Axis Network Cameras and Video Servers. The guide also provides a brief introduction to the functionality and usage of the surveillance software.
AXIS Camera Recorder consists of two distinct software applications: Administrator and Monitor. These are described briefly below.
The Administrator application - The administrator of the surveillance
installation uses this tool when setting up the system for the first time, when new cameras are added to the system and whenever the system configuration needs to be changed. This tool is also used to configure the screen layout to use while operating the system, the recording conditions to use, etc. is the core of the surveillance system. The Monitor records and displays live images from the connected video cameras and the operator uses this application for surveillance. Operators can start and stop cameras, control PTZ cameras (if installed), review recordings, create AVI files, export and print images, etc.
The Monitor application - This application forms the main user interface and
Notes: The Administrator application and the Monitor application cannot be run simultaneously - the one must be closed before the other is opened. In order to achieve the best performance and most reliable operation, it is recommended that the surveillance PC is not used for other demanding software applications or unnecessary purposes.
The Monitor application and cameras must be running to record
images. There will be no video surveillance if the Monitor application is closed!
Before installing, you should be aware of the various requirements that will apply for your application, and in particular for the desired frame rate. The values shown below are obtained from real-life tests.
Minimum Processor Requirements for Frame Rates
NTSC/PAL Cameras 1 camera 4 cameras 8 cameras 16 cameras NTSC/PAL Cameras 1 camera 4 cameras 8 cameras 16 cameras 10 fps, medium compression P4, 1,0 GHz P4, 1,0 GHz P4, 1,8 GHz P4, 3,06 GHz 25 fps, medium compression P4, 1,0 GHz P4, 1,8 GHz P4, 3,06 GHz N/A 10 fps, high compression P4, 1,0 GHz P4, 1,0 GHz P4 1,0 GHz - P4, 1,8 GHz P4, 1,8 GHz 25 fps, high compression P4, 1,0 GHz P4, 1,8 GHz P4, 3,06 GHz N/A
Approximate Total Frame Rates for Various Configurations
NTSC/PAL Cameras 1 camera 2 cameras 4 cameras 8 cameras 16 cameras P4 1,0 GHz, Medium compression 50 P4 1,8 GHz, Medium compression 160 P4 3,06 GHz, Medium compression 200
In general, the better the PCs processor, the better the frame rate. The amount of RAM available is of less importance for the frame rate, but is important for AXIS Camera Recorders overall performance. The amount of RAM required is dependent on the number of cameras in use. For up to 8 cameras - use 512 MB, and for 9-16 cameras - use 1024 MB.
Whilst not absolutely essential for operation, using an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for the computer running AXIS Camera Recorder is highly recommended.
Hard Disk Space
The amount of disk space required can be roughly calculated from the table below. Always add a further 5-10% disk space as a safety margin.
Average File Size 15 KB 15 KB 15 KB 25 KB 25 KB 25 KB 35 KB 35 KB 35 KB Stored Images Disk space (GB) 1 2.1.8 3.2.1 5.2 21
Axis Network Camera and Video Server Requirements
The Axis cameras and video servers used with AXIS Camera Recorder must be installed with the firmware release 2.34 or later. The following network cameras are supported: AXIS 205, AXIS 2100, AXIS 2110, AXIS 2120, AXIS 2130, and the AXIS 2420. Supported video servers; AXIS 2400, AXIS 2400+, AXIS 2401, AXIS 2401+, AXIS 2411.
Item Operating System Protocols, APIs, Software Incompatible software Notes Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, or XP Professional, or NT 4.0 (SP3 or later). Using the operating systems latest Service Pack is highly recommended. TCP/IP support. Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher. FTP-Server: already included in AXIS Camera Recorder. Do not run other FTP servers on the same port number or change the default port number used by the AXIS Camera Recorder FTP-Server.
The Windows computer used for AXIS Camera Recorder must be NTFS-formatted.
Step 1 - Locate your License Code
To install the full retail version of AXIS Camera Recorder a valid license code must be entered. This code can be found on the product label in the software retail box. The license code starts with ACR and is followed by a combination of letters and numbers. A license code is not required to install the Demo version of the program.
Step 2 - Connect Devices
Connect your Axis cameras/video servers to your Local Area Network. Consult the product documentation for more information. To verify that the camera/video server is properly installed on your network, connect to it from a standard browser. If you cannot connect using a browser, you will not be able connect from AXIS Camera Recorder.
Step 3 - Install the Software
Insert the AXIS Camera Recorder CD into your computers CD drive. The installation program starts automatically if Auto-Run has been enabled. Otherwise, run the program acr.exe from the CDs root directory. If a previous version (or the demo version) exists on the system, the installation program will recommend that the earlier version is removed. After doing so, the installation program must be started once more for the actual installation. You will next be asked to accept the product license agreement. This agreement is also supplied in printed form with the product. If you do not accept the license agreement, select No and the installation will terminate. Otherwise, select Yes and the installation will proceed. Enter your name, company name and the products license code. Enter the whole license code, including the hyphens. Do not include any blanks. Complete the installation process by following the on-screen instructions. Important!
The license code for AXIS Camera Recorder will be needed again if you ever need to re-install the software. The code should therefore be treated as a valuable item and stored in a safe place.
If a demo version of AXIS Camera Recorder was already installed, it will be necessary to remove the image databases. This can be done either by uninstalling the demo version or by clearing each camera database from within the new version of the AXIS Camera Recorder software. See also Setting Image Quality and Recording Conditions, on page 18.
Step 4 - Configure for First Use
After installing the software, it must be configured for your cameras and/or video servers. You will also need to configure the screen layout for the Monitor application. This is done by using the Administrator application. Please see Devices - Quick Setup, on page 10, for more information. See also The Administrator Application, on page 13, for a more detailed explanation of the Administrator functionality.
Help & Support
The Administrator and Monitor applications are both supplied with context-sensitive help for all the available functionality. Help is obtained by clicking the question mark icon in the program's active window (or in some windows the Help button). The cursor changes to a What's this?" cursor and you can then click on the item you need help with. If you have questions or problems that are not addressed in this manual, contact your Axis dealer or visit the Axis support web at: www.axis.com/techsup/ Please remember to register your software at www.axis.com
Devices - Quick Setup
This short description will help you set up your first device, without going into too much detail. It is assumed that the software has already been successfully installed. 1. Start the Administrator application and click the Add Device button. The Device Setup Wizard starts.
Add Device Monitor Manager
Figure 1 - The main Administrator window. 2. Enter the IP address of the Axis camera/video server. 3. Click Next and enter the administrator password for the device. 4. Click Next to auto-detect the device. If successful, the device type and MAC address (S/N) will be shown. 5. Click Next and give the device a descriptive name. 6. Click Finish to return to the Administrator. The new device will now be shown in the Device Manager window.
Now that a device has been added we will add the camera to the Monitor application and configure its layout. 1. Click the Monitor Manager button in the Administrator.
Figure 2 - The Monitor Manager window. 2. Select a Layout Size (e.g. 2x2 = 4 cameras) and click on one of the monitor windows. The selected monitor window turns light grey. 3. Select a camera for the active monitor window. An image from that camera will be shown in the monitor window. 4. Click the OK button to exit the Monitor Manager. Important!
The steps described above determine how cameras are displayed in the Monitor application. If a camera is not configured for display here, it will not appear in the Monitor application.
Click the Exit button to close the Administrator. It is not possible to run both applications at once, so the one must always be closed before opening the other.
Using the Monitor application
1. Now open the Monitor application. You should now see the image from your camera. If not, the camera was not properly added to the Monitor manager. Go back to the previous page and add the camera again. 2. Click the Manual button. This enables the Start, Start All and Stop All buttons. 3. Click on the monitor window for the camera - this makes it the active monitor window. 4. Now press the Start button to start fetching images from the camera. The Start button turns into a Stop button. 5. Click the Exit button when finished. If you have problems setting up your first device, please see The Administrator Application, on page 13, which describes in more detail how to: Change image quality and compression for a camera Change the recording conditions for a camera Calibrate motion detection Set up PTZ preset positions Enable e-mail alerts Start and stop cameras automatically, at preset times (Scheduling)
The Administrator Application
The Administrator application is used when setting up the system for the first time, when new cameras or video servers are added to the system, and whenever the system configuration needs to be changed. It is also used to configure the layout of the Monitor application, which recording conditions to use, etc. The Administrator is started from the Program Menu.
Figure 3- The Administrator window, showing several configured cameras and video servers. The main window provides the following buttons: Monitor Manager - Set up the screen layout and positions for cameras, etc. See Configuring Monitors and the Layout, on page 17. Scheduler - Control when cameras start and stop and when alerts are sent. See Scheduling Camera Activity and Alert Periods, on page 29. General Settings - Set up log files, screen updating and e-mail. See General Settings, on page 27.
Add Device - Add new cameras or video servers. See the previous section Devices - Quick Setup, on page 10 and the more detailed section Changing Device Settings, on page 15. Edit Device - Edit/update the configuration of an existing device. Remove Device - Removes an existing device from the system. Settings - Set up image quality and recording conditions, etc. for the camera. See Setting Image Quality and Recording Conditions, on page 18. I/O Setup - Define inputs and outputs to use in the system. Inputs can be used to create an alert or start/stop a camera. Outputs can activate the output ports on selected devices and thus activate e.g. a siren or a light. See also Inputs and Outputs, on page 39. I/O Control - Set up defined inputs to activate selected outputs. Several inputs can activate the same output. Both external inputs and timer events can be used to activate an output.
Configuring Monitors and the Layout
Once the software has been configured for your cameras and video servers, you should then set up the screen layout for the Monitor application, and specify where each camera should be displayed on the screen. Important!
Adding a camera in the Monitor Manager is a required step to enable the display of the camera in the Monitor application. If a camera is not configured for display here, it will not appear in the Monitor application.
In the Administrator, click the Monitor Manager button.
Figure 4 - The Monitor Manager window. The Monitor Manager provides the following options:
Layout Size - Select how many monitors (i.e. camera windows) to display
on the screen. A maximum of 16 windows can be displayed. Select from 1x1, 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4.
Hot Spot Window - This special window can be used for various purposes
and will, when enabled, occupy up to 9 (3x3) of the available windows, depending on the layout in use. The Hot Spot window can show an enlarged view from one camera, it can be used for interactive PTZ control, or it can be used to browse through previously recorded images (Quick Browse). To use the function, select Hot Spot and the desired window layout. that window by clicking it and then select the camera to display there. Note that each camera can only be displayed in one monitor window.
Select Camera - To assign a camera to a particular monitor window, select
Settings - This button takes you directly to the Camera Settings dialog for the selected camera. These settings can also be accessed from the main Administrator window. See below for more information.
Setting Image Quality and Recording Conditions
Image quality, recording speeds, and other recording conditions can all be set for each connected camera. From the tree view of the connected cameras in the main Administrator window, select the camera to configure and click the Settings button. The Camera Settings dialog appears. This can also be opened by selecting the Settings button from the Monitor Manager, as described above. The following settings are then available:
Desired Recording Speed - The desired recording speed is the number of
frames to retrieve from the camera each second, minute or hour. This allows for a frame rate ranging from 24 images per day up to 30 images per second (25 images per second for PAL). The expected time between each image is also calculated and displayed.
options are available. The image database can be repaired, or it can be deleted on Monitor startup. Note that database repair is very time-consuming.
If recordings are larger than expected, or if the available disk space is suddenly reduced in some other way (e.g. by a disk error), an automatic database resizing procedure will automatically take effect. The size of the existing databases will be reduced, so that a percentage of the oldest recordings will be deleted and each database will temporarily be limited to its new size. You will be informed of this on-screen, in the log files and optionally via e-mail, if this has been activated. When the Monitor application is next restarted, the old database sizes will then be used. It is therefore up to the user to adopt the new sizes or otherwise solve the disk size problem.
Motion Detection Settings
This provides access to setting up motion detection for the camera:
Motion Detection - Click this button to calibrate the motion detection. See Calibrating Motion Detection, on page 22. Motion Color - Allows you to select a new color for indicating detected
Exclude Regions Settings
It is also possible to set up regions for the camera that should be excluded from motion detection.
Exclude Regions - Click this button to specify the areas to exclude. See also
Defining Motion Detection Exclude Areas, on page 24.
Region Color - Select a color for the excluded region.
This activates the Configure Device dialog, where the camera image quality, including the image size and its compression, can be set up. A preview image can be shown with the current selected settings.
Click this button to define which outputs (on any device/camera in the system) will be controlled by this camera. Outputs can be controlled by detected motion on this camera, or manually by buttons provided in the monitor. These buttons are displayed whenever the camera is selected and up to 5 buttons (i.e. for 5 outputs) can be configured per camera. Simply locate the required output from the list and then use the arrow buttons to add it to the On Manual Control panel (i.e. a button is created) or add it to the On Motion Detection panel. If required, the output can be controlled by both methods. Note: To define outputs, click the I/O Setup button in the main Administrator window.
PTZ Preset Positions
This button is only shown for Pan/Tilt/Zoom cameras. Up to 25 preset positions per absolute positioning PTZ camera can be defined in the PTZ Preset Positions dialog box activated by this button. Each preset position can later be accessed in the Monitor application. For relative positioning PTZ cameras, the preset positions defined in the device itself will be listed and used instead. These preset positions must be defined in the devices web interface before they will be available in the AXIS Camera Recorder software. For detailed information about PTZ preset positions and how to use them, see Setting Up and Using PTZ Preset Positions, on page 25.
Setting Up and Using PTZ Preset Positions
Up to 25 PTZ preset positions (PPs) can be created for absolute positioning PTZ cameras. These are then accessible in the Monitor applications control panel. For relative PTZ cameras, the number of PPs will depend on the Axis video server and the PTZ driver used. For relative PTZ cameras, only the PPs defined in the video server will be listed and available for use. The PTZ preset positions dialog box is activated from the camera settings dialog box by pressing the PTZ Preset Positions button. An absolute PTZ is device is one that is capable of keeping exact track of its own position, by using a coordinate Figure 7 - The PTZ Preset Positions dialog box. system. It is thus possible to command it to go to xx,yy. A relative PTZ device, however, can only move in relation to its current position, i.e. it is not possible to say go to xx,yy but only e.g. go up or go left. The following functionality is available (for absolute devices): Wide/Tele bar - Click on the bar to set the zoom level for the camera. When clicking, the zoom level will be set to the level indicated by the cursor position on the bar.
Tilt (Vertical bar) - Click on the bar to set the tilt position for the camera. When clicking, the tilt level will be set to the level indicated by the cursor position on the bar. Pan (Horizontal bar) - Click on the bar to set the pan position for the camera. When clicking, the pan level will be set to the level indicated by the cursor position on the bar. Pan/Tilt buttons - Press the buttons in order to move the camera in the direction indicated by the button. Zoom buttons - Press these buttons for extra, digital zoom. Use Preset Positions from Device - For absolute PTZ cameras you can choose to use the PPs on the video server, or the ones defined in AXIS Camera Recorder. For relative PTZ cameras on Axis video servers, the PPs defined PPs in the server will automatically be used, i.e. the option is disabled. Set Position - Press this button when the relative PTZ camera has been moved to the desired position. This will save the position as the selected PP. Also used to change the position for an existing preset position to the current selected camera position. Note that names are truncated if too long for the preset position buttons in the Monitor application. Edit Name - Select a preset position in the list and press this button to change the name of the preset position. Test - Move the camera to the selected preset position. Delete - Remove the selected preset position from the list. The preset position list is divided into five groups, A, B, C, D and E, each with 5 preset positions. In the Monitor application, the preset positions will be shown in these groups of five. Each group has its own button for fast access in the Monitor. Use the up and down arrow buttons to change the order of the listed preset positions, by first selecting a preset and then clicking the arrows.
The General Settings dialog box allows you to define various administrative settings, as described below.
Figure 8 - The General Settings window. Logfile Path - Specify the directory on the disk where the log files should be located. The specified directory must already exist, as it will not be created automatically. Days to log - Specify the number of days to store the log files. A new log file will be created each day. Log files older than the specified number of days are automatically deleted. Disable Screen Update - Select this option if the Monitor screen is not used on a daily basis, but only used when setting up the software. All Monitor screen updating will then be disabled. This can free up resources that may result in better system performance. Don't send e-mail on camera failure - If e-mail has been enabled, the default setting for camera failures is to send e-mail whenever this occurs. Select this option to disable sending of e-mail. Note: E-mail notifications of camera failure are sent at any time, i.e. regardless of the scheduled e-mail alert periods set in the Scheduler.
E-mail Settings - Click this button to change the settings for e-mail alerts. See below.
The e-mail alerting system must be configured prior to use. The following settings must be configured; Enable E-mail - Select to enable E-mail alerting. Note that camera and system failures will automatically be sent via e-mail if this has not been disabled under Advanced in the General settings window. Advanced - If a simple MAPI mail client is not available, SMTP e-mail can instead be used. SMTP can also be used if the mail client requires confirmation before sending e-mail. Recipient(s) - Specify the e-mail address(es) for one or more recipients. Use semicolons (;) to separate multiple addresses, e.g. email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject Text - Specify the text string to be used as the e-mail subject. Message Text - Enter the text string that will be used as the e-mail body. The name of the camera that generated the alarm is automatically appended to the text. Include Image - Check to include the image that generated the alert as an attachment in the e-mail. Time btw. mails - Specify the minimum number of minutes between alert e-mails for the individual camera, or set to 0 (zero) if each case of detected motion should result in an alert e-mail. A motion alert from a camera will not generate an e-mail if the minimum number of minutes specified has not elapsed since the last alert e-mail was sent. Notes: During a longer period of constant motion, a large number of alarms will be generated. It might not be desirable to send an alert e-mail for every alarm.
The Scheduler controls during which hours of the day motion
alert e-mails are sent, and also which cameras will be generating them. See Scheduling Camera Activity and Alert Periods, on page 29 for more information.
Scheduling Camera Activity and Alert Periods
Using a a one-week calendar, the built-in Scheduler provides automatic control over important system functions. The main principle for scheduling is to click and drag in the window to create (or delete) a time period, during which various functions will be enabled: Time-controlled starting and stopping of the selected camera (Online) Event-controlled ((via external sensors) starting and stopping of the camera (Online) E-mail alerts on motion detection Sound alerts on motion detection The Scheduler is activated from the main Administrator window, by pressing the Scheduler button. The following window appears:
Figure 9 - The Scheduler window. The following functions are available:
Mode - The selected mode determines if time periods are added or deleted when clicking and dragging the mouse in the window. Only the functions selected (Online, e-mail, Sound) will actually be affected by the operation.
camera, i.e. when the camera will record. A camera can be controlled by time and/or events. See Inputs and Outputs, on page 39 for more information on sensors and events. A yellow bar indicates that the camera will be active for events (On Event), and a purple bar that the camera is active during the entire configured time period (Always).
Online - Check this box to create (or delete) online periods for the selected
E-mail - Check to enable (or delete) periods during which e-mail alerts will be sent for events for the selected camera. Before setting up e-mail alerts, e-mail must be configured in the General Settings dialog, also available from the main Administrator application. See E-mail Setup, on page 28. Sound - Check to add (or delete) sound alerts for events for the selected camera. The sound file used must be located in the AXIS Camera Recorder directory and the file must be named alarm.wav. To use a sound other than the default one, simply rename your new file alarm.wav. Camera - Select a camera from the list. All operations performed in the
Scheduler will only apply to the currently selected camera. used for other cameras.
Copy Schedule - Creates a copy of the current schedule so that it can be Paste Schedule - Pastes the copied schedule setup to the currently selected camera. To copy to further cameras, simply select the next camera and paste it there as well. Take care when pasting, as schedules are overwritten with no warning.
The surveillance system will only be active when the Monitor application is running. If the application is closed, images will not be recorded and alert messages will not be sent.
Start the Monitor from the Program Menu or from the shortcut on the desktop.

Figure 11 - The main Monitor window. Shown here with five monitor windows (each showing the image from the associated camera) and one Hot Spot window.
When the Monitor application is started, it automatically starts any cameras that have been specified in the Scheduler as being Online at that time. The Scheduler can be disabled and overridden by pressing the Manual button, which allows all the cameras to be started manually, one at a time, by clicking the Start button for the selected camera, or alternatively, all at once, by clicking the Start All button. Note:
For secure operation, cameras should be scheduled and not left in manual mode!
The Hot Spot window shows an enlarged view of the selected monitor. To display another monitor in the Hot Spot window, select the new window by clicking on it with the mouse.
Each monitor window features one green and one red indicator. The green indicator flashes to shows that the camera is receiving images. A solid red indicator means that a motion detection event has occurred on this camera, even if there is no motion currently in the image. To reset the motion indicator, simply click in the image.
Tools and options available in the Monitor window
The main window provides tools for the following: the Recordings Browser, on page 35.

Start/Stop - Press this button to start or stop the camera in the selected monitor. Only enabled in manual mode. Start All - Starts all cameras at once. Only enabled in manual mode. Stop All - Stops all cameras at once. Only enabled in manual mode.
In Scheduler mode, the scheduler is responsible for starting and stopping the cameras. In manual mode the cameras can only be started and stopped manually. The system is in manual mode when the button is pushed in.
A plus sign (+) will now appear to the left of the device to which the sensor is connected. Click this to see the defined external event entry. The event name appears under the device, which indicates that this event is controlled through that device. We will now create a timer event, which is tied to the new external event; 1. Select the external event we created previously by clicking on it in the Defined Events window. Click the Add New Event button and the New Timer Event dialog appears. 2. Enter (in seconds or minutes) a value in the field for Timer Event Occurs After. 3. Give the timer event a name (e.g. Door opens - timer) and click the OK button to return to the Event Settings dialog. Now click the plus sign (+) to the left of the external event to see the timer event entry. The timer event name appears under the external event name, which indicates that it is controlled by the external event. Click the OK button to return to the main Administrator window. We will now use our events to activate a camera. Click the Scheduler button and the Camera/Alert Scheduler dialog appears: 1. From the Camera drop-down list, select the camera to be controlled by the created events. 2. From the Start Event drop-down list, select the event that will start the camera (Door opens), and from the Stop Event drop-down list select the event that stops the camera (Door opens - timer). As the camera can be controlled by events, but also at set times, we must specify when the camera should be controlled by the start and stop events. In the Camera/Alert Scheduler dialog box do the following: 3. Set the Mode to Set to specify the event period. 4. Check the Online box and uncheck the E-mail box. Any time periods added will now only apply to the Online function. 5. In the Scheduler week view, click on the day on which the event-controlled period starts.
6. Now find the start time of the event-controlled period and click and drag the mouse to the end time. 7. You will now be asked to define the selected time period as On Events or Always. Select On Events and the selected time period turns yellow in the Scheduler overview. When online event periods have been set, click the OK button in the Camera/Alert Scheduler dialog box to start using the event settings and to return to the main window. The camera will now start and stop on the specified events, but only when in the specified event period.
Advanced Settings (in I/O Setup)
