Issue

Does the DSSRV support coaxitron PTZ protocol?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • DSSRV
  • ENC5416
  • ENC5516
  • CM9760-CXTA

Cause

DSSRV coaxitron control support.

Resolution

The DSSRV supports coaxitron using either an ENC5416 in conjunction with a CM9760-CXTA or only using the ENC5516.
Notes:

  • The ENC5416 and ENC5516 cannot be used together on the same DSSRV system, if upgrading the ENC5416 to an ENC5516 you will need to replace all ENC's on that system.
  • The ENC5516 supports only 32 bit, or "Extended", Coaxitron.  If there are any older 15 bit, or "Standard", Coaxitron receivers that need to be controlled, a CM9760-CXTA can be used.

Below are the two options the DSSRV supports coaxitron protocol.

  2. DSSRV with ENC5516

    IMPORTANT
    As of Digital Sentry software version 7.7.309 Microsoft .NET 4.5.1 is required which means Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server are no longer supported.   The DS 7.7.309 installer package does not include .NET 4.5.1, if .NET 4.5.1 is not preinstalled on the server the installer will initiate a download of .NET 4.5.1 from microsoft which will require internet access.    If there is no internet access at the server location and .NET 4.5.1 is not preinstalled, download a standalone installer here :
