About Endura
The Endura® system is a total system solution for network-based video surveillance. Endura products control the origination, transport, recording,
and display of integrated, security-related audio and video.

The advanced system management software provides access to all of Endura’s operation and configuration features in one unified, user-friendly
interface. The interface uses drag-and-drop operations, shortcut menus, and tooltips to enable the most direct, intuitive interactions. Sound,
graphics, color, and on-screen messages provide helpful, ongoing feedback about user activity and system status. This interface allows users to
view live video and audio, control cameras, record, search, playback, and export video. The software also allows users to perform administrative
functions, such as configuring devices, setting up users, adjusting network settings, and creating recording schedules. Permissions to access
these functions and all other system services can be configured to a fine level of detail. Users see only those devices and features to which they
have been granted permission.

The software offers a powerful scripting interface. With scripts, users can flexibly and easily automate many system functions in almost any
combination. An enhanced search interface enables searches across multiple devices, time ranges, and event types. System logs can also be
searched, printed, and exported. Video clips and snapshots can be exported to a USB flash memory device or to a DVD±RW/CD-RW drive
(if these are available on the host workstation).

This manual describes how to operate version 2.0 or later of the advanced system management software to monitor live and recorded video, run
scripts, and respond to alarms. The software configuration manual describes how to configure the software, create users and roles, and
configure devices, scripts, and recording schedules.This manual is available electronically on the resource disc that accompanies the Endura
Workstation. It is also available for download from the Pelco Web site. In addition to these manuals, the software provides online Help that is
accessible from the interface Help menu. You can locate the topics you need without referring to either of the manuals.

Getting Started with the Software
The following list introduces you to the basic building blocks of the software. Review these topics before you start using the system to help you
understand the software.
• Opening and Closing the Software on page 10
• Main Screen Overview on page 13
• Configuring the Application Window on page 15
• Controls, shortcuts, and time-saving tricks:
– Tooltips on page 18
– Right-Clicking and Shortcut Menus on page 18
– Keyboard Shortcuts on page 19
– On-Screen Video Controls on page 27

If you are running the software on a personal computer other than an Endura workstation, follow the recommendations for minimum system
requirements that are listed in the software specifications. Ensure that you have a USB mouse with a scroll wheel and a standard USB PC
keyboard. Ensure that the personal computer is connected to an Endura system as described in the Endura Network Design Guide.

C4607M-D (3/16) 9
Opening and Closing the Software
To start the software, double-click the Endura icon on the desktop of your Endura workstation or personal computer. The Login dialog box
appears. If the SM5000 is online, a small key icon appears in the lower-right corner.

LOGGING ON
Logging on loads your user profile, including your language preference. When you start the software, the Login dialog box automatically appears.

When logging on to an Endura network that includes a System Manager (SM5000), the default user name is admin and the default password is
admin.

To keep your system secure, be sure to change the default passwords. Record the new user name and password information in a secure location.

Figure 1. Login Dialog Box

To log on:
1. Type your Endura user name.

2. Type your password.

3. If necessary, click the Synchronize button to locate the System Manager. Refer to Synchronizing with the System Manager on
page 12 for more information.

4. Click OK.

NOTE: User names and passwords are case sensitive.

To cancel logging on, click Cancel.

If you enter your user name or password incorrectly, the dialog box shifts from left to right to signal the problem and the following dialog box
appears. Retype your user name and password, and then click Retry.

It may take up to a minute for the application to fully load. While the software is loading, the Endura welcome screen appears. The main screen
appears after the software has completed loading (refer to Figure 5 on page 13), and the devices on your network start to load. Depending on the
size of your network, this process may take a few minutes. Check the lower-left corner of the application window to see the status of the
device-loading process.

NOTE: Every Endura user may be assigned one or more roles; each role has permission to access a particular set of Endura devices and software
features. If, when you log on, you do not see a device or system feature you expect to see, contact the system administrator to determine if your
permissions should be edited to expand your access.

LOGGING ON WITH A TEMPORARY PASSWORD
System administrators can assign users temporary passwords to use when logging on to the software for the first time or when a password
needs to be reset. When logging on with the temporary password, a user is prompted to create a new password by performing the following
steps:
1. Click the Workstation icon on your desktop. A Logon dialog box appears.

2. Select the user name and the current password. A Change Password dialog box appears.

Figure 2. Change Temporary Password Dialog Box

3. Type the current password, a new password, and then confirm the new password.

4. Click the OK button. If the old password (temporary) is entered correctly and the new and confirmed passwords match, the application
opens.

NOTE: A dialog box appears if the old password is incorrect or the new and confirmed passwords do not match. If this occurs, retype your
old and new passwords. If you are unsuccessful, contact your administrator.

CHANGING PASSWORDS
System administrators may enforce password security policies that will prompt users to change their passwords before their passwords expire.

Users can change their passwords by performing the following steps:


1. Click the WS5200 software icon on your desktop. A Logon dialog box appears.

2. Select the user name and type your password. The software opens.

3. Click the Tools menu. A drop-down menu appears.

Figure 3. Change Password Drop-Down Menu

4. Click Change Password. A Change Password dialog box appears.

6. Click the OK button.

SYNCHRONIZING WITH THE SYSTEM MANAGER
The System Manager can be updated independently of other devices on the Endura system. It is possible that the software might not locate the
system manager if it has been changed or replaced. When this happens you must synchronize with the system manager again.

To synchronize with the system manager:


1. Go to the Login dialog box if it is not already displayed. If the system manager cannot be located, a Synchronize button appears on
the Login dialog box.

2. Click the Synchronize button . A message appears on the dialog box stating that the application is searching for the system
manager.

3. After the system manager is located, the icon on the Login dialog box changes, and the message changes to indicate that it has been
located. Enter your user name and password and log on to the software. You will be reconnected with devices on the system again.

LOGGING OFF
To exit the application, from the File menu, select Exit or Logout. The system logs you off, closes the application, and returns you to the Endura
workstation desktop. As an alternative, click the Close button in the upper-right corner of the application window.

Navigation: This panel displays all of the cameras on the network. To view video, click and drag a camera to a video pane. Apply group
or location filters in Camera view or Explorer view. Rearrange the list by camera name, number, group, or location in Explorer view. The
navigation panel can be detached from the main screen and moved to a different location on the monitor, or it can be moved to a
different monitor.
Quick Search Timeline: This timeline displays any video that has been recorded in the past 24 hours for the currently selected
camera. As you select a different video pane, the display is updated to reflect the available recorded video for the currently selected
camera.
Sync Playback Tab and Search Results Tabs: The Sync Playback tab displays the cameras whose recorded video is being played
synchronously. Use this tab to play back the video from several cameras related to a single event. Change the layout to display video
from more cameras. Any display mode is available for synchronized playback.
The search results tabs allow you to search for video from a single camera on the Quick Search tab or to view broader search results on
the Enhanced Search Results tab. Each tab offers playback and export options. To reopen a search results tab, select it from the Views
menu. For information about the Quick Search or Enhanced Search functions, refer to Searching for Video on page 60.
These tabs can be detached from the main screen, moved to another part of the monitor or to another monitor, or closed.

Alarm Indicators: As alarms are received, a color-coded alarm indicator appears in the toolbar. Each alarm indicator represents
a different type of alarm that Endura supports. For example, a green alarm indicator represents normal alarms. Yellow indicates minor
alarms, orange indicates major alarms, and red indicates critical alarms. A flashing indicator means that an alarm has been received but
not acknowledged.
Workspaces: Each workspace tab displays a group of video panes with the cameras you have selected. Changes to the camera
selections are automatically saved. You do not have to select the same cameras each time you log on. Workspaces can be detached
from the main screen and moved to another part of the monitor, or it can be moved to another monitor. There are three specialized
workspaces:
• External Monitors. This workspace functions as a virtual monitor wall, with monitor icons arranged to correspond to physical
NTSC/PAL or VGA monitors. Refer to the software configuration manual (C3619M) for information on setting up these icons. Drag
cameras onto this workspace to display video on your actual monitor wall.
• Enhanced Search. This workspace allows you to search for video by a date/time range, multiple devices, and multiple events. It
also supports locking, unlocking, and exporting video.
• Alarms. This workspace functions as the Alarm Manager. The Alarm Manager workspace displays a list of all active alarms
including those from physical events, motion events, and device errors reported by the system. An icon indicates the type of response
to each alarm to clear it, acknowledge it, or pause it to resolve later (also referred to as snoozing an alarm).
Video Pane: A bright green border indicates the currently selected video pane in live-view mode. Bright yellow indicates recorded (or
playback) video. Bright red indicates that manual recording is in progress. If audio is available, it will stream along with the live or
recorded video. Right-click the video pane to see what services (such as patterns and presets) the camera supports.
Video Controls: When you move your cursor into a pane to which video is streaming (either live or played back), these controls appear
in the lower-left corner of the pane. Move the pointer above each button to learn its function.
Status Bar: Icons on this bar indicate available network services, the security status for the system, and the currently active interface
feature.

Monitoring Live Video and Audio
NOTE: Improper use of audio/visual recording equipment may subject you to civil and criminal penalties. Applicable laws regarding the use of such capabilities
vary between jurisdictions and may require, among other things, express written consent from the recorded subjects. You are solely responsible for insuring strict
compliance with such laws and for strict adherence to any/all rights of privacy and personalty.

LIVE VIDEO RATES AND RESOLUTION


To deliver the highest quality picture to the most video panes at one time, the software uses the patent-pending EnduraView™ technology to
adjust the display rates dynamically. The video display frame rates vary according to the number of video streams displayed on the screen, their
resolution and recording frame rate, the source of the video (NET53xx series encoders or Endura digital video recorders), and the performance of
the Endura system on which the software is running. For specific information about expected frame rates, consult the Endura Network Design
Guide.

When displaying up to four video streams, you can view video at the maximum images per second (ips) associated with your picture quality
stream. If your stream is set to 4CIF-30 ips, it can display 30 ips. When displaying more than four video streams, the ips are distributed across the
active video panes as needed. The currently selected channel streams at the highest rate for the picture quality setting; all other video panes
stream I-frames at a rate of two to five ips.

The video display resolution is determined through the systemwide picture quality setting on the System Configuration tab or the encoder-
specific quality setting on the Devices tab. For more information on setting picture quality, refer to the software configuration manual.

NOTE: The software displays both standard and high definition video streams. Some cameras can be configured to display either type of video
stream. If you are trying to view video from a camera that has been reconfigured to display high definition video and the video does not display
properly, consider exiting and restarting the software.

SELECTING VIDEO TO DISPLAY


• The Navigation panel provides access to all cameras on the system. If there is a red slash mark across the icon, that camera has been
online in the past but is not currently available for display.
• Camera view displays icons for all the cameras on your network.

Figure 15. Navigation: Camera View

• Explorer view presents a list of cameras, which may be sorted alphanumerically (by camera name or number) or arranged hierarchically
(by location or camera group). The hierarchical view is for display purposes only, to make it easier to navigate through large networks and
locate individual cameras. You can also use a location or camera group to select multiple cameras at a time.

Figure 16. Navigation: Explorer View

C4607M-D (3/16) 21
To select a camera to view:

WORKING WITH THE ZONE OF INTEREST FEATURE
A zone of interest is a user-defined area that is visible from a particular camera. Creating a zone of interest provides an independent zoom
capability on a particular area of the scene without disrupting the rest of the scene. A zone of interest can be created and viewed only when the
workspace is set to a single video display (1 x 1 view).

For each camera, a user can create one to six zones of interest. These zones are available on the workstation at which they are created. Other
users must set up their own zones of interest. For each zone, the user can resize, reposition, and name the zone.

Using Workspaces
A workspace in the software is a group of video panes displaying video from cameras that you have selected. Any changes to the cameras
selected for display in a workspace are automatically saved, so that you do not have to select the same cameras each time you log on. You might
set up a workspace to display cameras of a particular type, cameras in a certain location, or cameras monitoring the same activity (for example,
doors, blackjack tables, or baggage handling).

Workspaces are accessed through a tabbed interface in the main screen. Each tab is independent of the others. Click a tab to switch to a
different set of video panes. There are four default workspaces (refer to Table D):

Table D. Default Workspaces

Default Name Default Layout


Workspace 1 One camera (1 x 1)
Workspace 2 Four cameras (2 x 2)
Workspace 3 Nine cameras (3 x 3)
Workspace 4 Sixteen cameras (4 x 4)

You may quickly and easily manage workspaces in the following ways:
• Disconnect all video in a workspace. You can disconnect all video being displayed in a workspace with a single command. Use this
command to disconnect all devices quickly so that you can modify settings in a workspace.
• Rename each workspace for easy recognition and selection. Example names include: Parking Lot Cameras, Hallway 1, Blackjack Close-Ups,
and Spectras.
• Change the workspace layout. For example, you might want to set up several workspaces in 4 x 4 layout to maximize the number of
cameras available at any one time. Alternatively, you might want to switch to 1 x 1 mode to increase the visibility of details in the
monitored video. You may use any layout you prefer for any workspace. If high definition monitors are attached to the workstation or
computer, you may use a layout that supports a 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio.
• Adjust the number of workspaces. The system allows you to have from one to six workspaces.
• Detach a workspace and move it to a different location on the monitor, or move it to another monitor.

Details on these configuration options and commands appear below.

NOTE: Your workspaces can be different from those on other Endura workstations. When you log on, the workspaces on your workstation
automatically load so that you see the cameras and layouts you prefer. Adjustments you make to your workspaces are saved on your workstation
and will not affect other users.

DISCONNECTING ALL VIDEO IN A WORKSPACE


When you want to modify the settings of a workspace, you must first disconnect any video that is playing in the video panes. Endura provides a

Using Patterns, Presets, and Scans
The software allows you to program the movements of PTZ-enabled cameras using patterns, presets, and scans. Patterns, presets, and scans
may be set and activated directly from the video pane (as described below). You may also activate patterns and presets using the software’s
scripting feature (refer to Executing Scripts on page 51 and to the configuration manual for instructions on creating scripts).

PATTERNS
A pattern is a memorized, repeating series of pan, tilt, and zoom movements that can be recalled with a command from a controller. The type of
camera positioning system determines the number of patterns that can be recorded and activated. For example, the 16X and 18X models of the
Spectra IV can store only one pattern while the 22X, 23X and 35X models can store up to eight patterns. Refer to the programming manual or

be combined in almost any order. The following scriptable actions have the corresponding effects:
• Display video: Displays video from the indicated camera.
• Start recording: Starts recording video from the indicated video source.
• Stop recording: Halts recording of the indicated video source.
• Run script: Initiates execution of a remote script.
• Wait: Pauses execution of a script for a given number of seconds.
• Send mail: Sends e-mail message to a given recipient.
• Activate relay: Activates a relay device.
• Preset: Moves camera to a specified preset. A preset allows you to direct a PTZ (camera positioning system) to a predetermined location.
• Pattern: Runs a specified pattern on a camera. A pattern allows you to program the movements of PTZ-enabled cameras.
• Start Loop: Indicates the starting point for a series of commands that are repeated. Any commands between this action and the End Loop
action will be repeated.
• End Loop: Indicates the ending point for a series of commands that are repeated. Any commands between the Start Loop action and this
action will be repeated.
• Stop Pattern: Halts a specified pattern on a camera.

To program scripts, click the Setup button , and then click the Scripts tab.

Working with Alarms
In Endura an alarm may be triggered by motion, a physical switch, or a device condition. Alarms are all virtual in Endura; any alarm can trigger
events anywhere in the system. Through event groups, conditions can be applied to alarm events: an alarm might only trigger under certain
conditions or multiple alarms might be necessary to trigger an event. Enable or disable each of these notifications for individual users from the
Users tab in the Setup screen.

Any device attached to an Endura system can issue an alarm. This includes cameras, encoders, network video recorders, storage expansion
boxes, and so forth. If alarm inputs found on certain cameras are used, a bidirectional communication protocol must be used with that camera.
The Pelco D protocol is the only Pelco protocol that supports bidirectional communication. For example, Spectra domes can receive PTZ
commands from the workstation through the encoder to which they are connected, and they can transmit alarm event information. If you want to
transmit information about camera-related alarm events to the Endura system, you must configure these cameras to use Pelco D protocol. Refer
to the Cameras section in the operation manual for information about configuring a protocol for a camera. Refer to the camera’s installation
manual to determine if it is capable of bidirectional communication.

AUTHENTICATING A FILE
Verifying the integrity, or authenticity, of a video clip is an important aspect of any video surveillance system. The Pelco Export Player can
authenticate any video file saved in its proprietary format. Files saved with a .pef extension can be authenticated and details about the success
or failure of the authentication can be reviewed in the Pelco Export Player.

If video fails to pass authentication, the specific frames that failed are identified. You can then view these frames or view the entire video clip.

To verify that an exported file has not been altered, run the Pelco Export Player’s authentication utility:
1. Open the file you want to authenticate. The Pelco Export Player Authentication screen appears.

Figure 106. Pelco Export Player Authentication Screen

2. Click the Authenticate button. The status bar gradually indicates the progress of the authentication (refer to Figure 107 on page 88). Click
Cancel at any time to interrupt the authentication process.

When the authentication is 100 percent complete, results messages appear on the screen indicating the status. These messages indicate if
the video authentication was successful, if a playlist has passesd authentication, or if the video failed to pass authentication.

3. Click the View button to see information about any frames that failed the authentication check. If no frames failed, no information is
displayed.

4. Click the View Video button to bypass any results and open the video clip.

5. Click the Cancel button if you do not want to view the video clip.
