The Captioner object is a child object of the Camera system object. It is designed for configuring titles display on a video recording and maintaining titles database.


If the incoming packets are sent to the POS-terminal in the UTF-8 code, set the 1 value for the DecodeUtf8 registry key for the proper titles displaying (for details, see Registry keys reference guide, for more information about working with the registry, see Working with Windows OS registry).

To configure the Captioner object, do the following:

  1. Go to the Hardware tab of the System settings dialog box (1)
  2. Create the Captioner object on the base of the Camera object (2).

  3. Specify the parameters of the titles output window (3):
    1. Set coordinates of the upper left corner of the titles output window: X (horizontal indent from left border of screen) and Y (vertical indent from top border of screen) fields.  
    2. Set measurement of the titles output window: W (width of the titles output window) and H (height of the titles output window) fields. 
  4. Specify the parameters of font used for titles output:
    1. Click the  button (4).
    2. In the appeared Windows dialog box, specify font parameters and click OK.
    3. Double left-click the Color field (5)
    4.  In the appeared Windows dialog box, select color and click OK.
  5. Specify the parameters for words highlighting (6):
    1. Right-click the Color of words field and select Add in the appeared context menu. 
    2. In the appeared dialog box, type-in a required word and click OK. The word is added to the Color of words table.
    3. Specify the color with which the word will be highlighted by double left-clicking the Color field next to the specified word. In the appeared Windows dialog box, select color and click OK.
    4. If the full string with a word is to be highlighted, then set the Full string checkbox.
    5. If the case of word characters is to be matched, then set the Match case checkbox.
    6. Repeat steps 5.1-5.5 for all required words.


      Use the context menu for operations with words in the table (right-click a word). If the table is to be cleared, then click Clear.
  6. Specify the maximum number of days as the difference between the newest and the oldest entry in the titles database for the given captioner in the Captions archive size__days field (7). Entries which were added earlier than the specified number of days before the most recent entry will be automatically deleted "in a loop". If the 0 value is specified, the entries will not be deleted "in a loop".


    For example, the titles archive size is 1 day. On Friday, the titles from the Captioner 1 were added to the titles database. On Saturday and Sunday the camera was turned off, and the titles were not recorded. On Monday the camera was turned on, and the titles from the Captioner 1 from Friday remained in the titles database until the new record was added to the titles database of the Captioner 1. In 3 minutes after the new record was made on Monday, the captions from Friday were deleted.

  7. Click the Apply button (8).

The Captioner object is now configured.


Use the Copy and Paste buttons to import all settings from one Captioner object to another.

The Color of words table can be saved and imported from a file. The Export and Import buttons are used to save and import the table.
