LTC 8x00/90 Integrated Series Description

The LTC 8100 Series, LTC 8200 Series, and LTC 8300 Series Allegiant® video switcher/control systems combine both switching and computer technology to provide powerful performance and unique system features for the security user. Offering full matrix switching capability, these systems can be programmed to display the video from any camera on any monitor, either manually or via independent automatic switching sequences.

These systems provide from 8 camera inputs, 2 monitor outputs to 32 camera inputs, 6 monitor outputs, 2 to 4 keyboards, 8 to 32 direct connect alarm input points, an integral signal distribution unit, and a computer interface port. A logging printer port is available in the LTC 8300 Series systems. These systems can be programmed with up to 60 sequences which can be run independently of each other in either a forward or reverse direction.

Any of the sequences can utilize the SalvoSwitching capability where any number of system monitors may be selected to switch as a group. Using the optional LTC 8059/00 Master Control Software package or the LTC 8850/00 Graphical User Interface software package, sequences can be made to activate and deactivate automatically based upon the time of day and the day of week.

Utilizing the unit’s integral signal distribution ports, connections to on-site receiver/drivers are easily made. On-site receiver/drivers provide operator control of pan, tilt, zoom; multiple pre-positions; four auxiliaries; auto-pan, and random scan. These systems also support variable speed operation and full programming functions of AutoDome® Series dome cameras.

When combined with an LTC 8016 Allegiant Bilinx™ Data Interface unit, these switcher/controllers support operations using Bilinx communication. With Bilinx, PTZ control is accomplished using a bidirectional communication protocol embedded in the video signal of Bosch Dinion™ and AutoDome® CCTV cameras. In addition, Bilinx uses the standard video cable to transmit alarm and status messages from the cameras, providing superior performance without the need for separate data transmission cables.

With their built-in alarm interface capability, an external contact closure or logic level can be used to automatically activate any camera to be displayed. Any monitor or group of monitors can be set to display cameras under alarm conditions. The base system contains three built in alarm response modes: basic, auto-build, and sequence & display. In addition to these three modes, the PC-based software packages offer the ability to combine any or all of the three standard modes within the same system. Alarm video may be selected to reset either manually or automatically. In addition, a 16‑character alarm title can be selected to appear instead of the camera title during alarm conditions.

System operation and programming is accomplished using a full-function, ergonomically designed keyboard (sold separately). Built-in operator priority levels and the ability to restrict certain operators from controlling designated functions provide maximum flexibility. These systems include a black outlined 48-character on-screen display for time-date, camera number, camera ID (16-characters), an icon to identify controllable cameras, and monitor (12-characters) or status information. Over 235 characters are available when programming camera ID and monitor titles. Utilizing a Windows®-based PC and the optional LTC 8059/00 Master Control Software package or LTC 8850/00 GUI software, enhanced programming and switching features can be obtained. A user-friendly spreadsheet format provides the ability to enter camera and monitor titles, program of operator names and priorities, 64 timed event actions, change system parameters, program camera sequences, install lockouts, and access the advanced alarm handling screens with speed and efficiency. The programmed information may then be transferred into the Allegiant system, stored on disk, or printed out directly from a printer connected to the PC.

The LTC 8850/00 Bosch GUI software is designed around an intuitive graphic-based interface. The GUI provides high performance programming, control and monitoring of all system functions by using on-screen icons to reflect real time status of the devices controlled by the system. The LTC 8850/00 GUI software also provides the ability to monitor system status events. System alarms, switching functions, sequence events, keyboard actions, and video loss information can be viewed in real time on the PC screen and, if desired, logged to the PC hard drive. The software also provides the ability to enable an onscreen indicator for easy identification of controllable cameras.

The LTC 8300 Series contain a logging printer output port which accepts a standard RS 232 serial printer. This provides a permanent record of system status showing time and date for changes such as: incoming alarms, acknowledgment of alarms, sequence loading, user log-on to keyboard, transfer of system tables and sequences, video loss messages, and a power up reset message. In addition, the printer can be used to obtain a hard copy of the system's configuration tables and sequences.

These systems provide powerful macro capabilities. The macros can be activated using Allegiant Series keyboards, system time event functions, alarm activations, and via special function icons in the LTC 8850/00 GUI software.

These systems can serve as the master switcher in a SatelliteSwitch® configuration. This innovative SatelliteSwitch feature enables a single system to communicate with remotely located "Satellite" systems. Any Allegiant model can serve as a master or remote Satellite switcher. This powerful feature permits the design of a distributed matrix video switching system with control at one central location and individual control at the local sites. The main control site can view/control local cameras plus cameras located at any of the remotely distributed Satellite sites. The Satellite sites can view/control only cameras associated with their own site. When used in this type of configuration, the main system can access up to 256 cameras located anywhere in the system.
