Expansion cards are used optionally and they bring out this functionality and installed directly on video capture cards. Intellect software brings out functionality of analog (decompressed and unprocessed) video output to external devices via corresponding BNC connector on video capture card (TV-out) (see Installing the expansion card for analog video out section).

Video outputting to analog monitor is made directly (without digitization) from one of the video cameras connected to Server.  

Note

When configuring Intellect, take into account that outputting of analog video to analog monitor is possible from one camera only.

For video outputting to analog monitor a video capture card is to have an analog video output. An analog video output is integrated into FS-8 video capture cards. An extra analog video output card is to be installed for FS-5, FS-6 and FS-16 cards.

A video signal from any camera on the Server can be output to an analog monitor. By default, a video signal from the camera connected to the same video capture card as a monitor can be output to an analog monitor. To output video signals from any camera connected to any video capture card on the Server, solder analog outputs (interface cables) on all video capture cards on the Server.

Note

When an analog video out card is connected to a video capture card and analog monitor connector to the corresponding BNC-connector on the video capture card, analog video outputting to analog monitor is activated automatically.

Output the video from all cameras installed on the Server and connected to different video capture cards, to one analog monitor (perhaps when analog video outputs of cards installed on the Server are soldered) in tweaki.exe utility (Extended Intellect configuration) as follows:

  1. Start tweaki.exe utility in the Tools folder of Intellect installation directory.
  2. Select the Video subsystem section (1).
  3. In the Analog video output list select the One item to activate outputting video from cameras connected to different video capture cards to one analog monitor (2).
    Video commutation (switching) while outputting them to analog monitor is performed only within cameras connected to one video capture. Changing the Analog video output parameter enables an extra program video commutator (switch) from all Server cameras connected to different video capture cards.
  4. To save changes click the OK button.

If several analog cards are used, then the switch between cameras video from which is output to one analog monitor is made via macros and scripts (programs).  For example for switching between two cameras one can create macros given in the table.
