Using the On-Screen Display

(OSD) Menu

FLIR MPX cameras have an integrated OSD menu that allows you to configure camera settings related to exposure, white balance, day / night settings and other camera image adjustments. You can also configure advanced picture correction features such as Wide Dynamic Range, Digital Noise Reduction and more.

The OSD menu appears as a text overlay on top of the camera image. In order to view the menu, you must connect the camera to a monitor.

1.1 Accessing the OSD Menu

FLIR MPX cameras feature an OSD control stick on the camera cable for easy access and configuration of menu items.

To access the OSD menu:

Connect the camera to a power supply. See the quick start guide provided with your camera for details.

Connect the camera to a monitor or compatible DVR.

CAUTION

If using an analog test monitor or a 960H DVR, you must use the camera’s yellow analog video connector. Use the green MPX video connector to connect the camera to an MPX DVR only.

Push the middle of the control stick to open the OSD menu.

Move the control stick / to move the menu cursor, then / to change the value of menu items.

Push the middle of the control stick to confirm selection.

Arrows beside menu items indicate a submenu (Flir C233BC, C233BD, C233ED, C234BC, C234EC, C237BC, C237BD, C233EC, C237BD1, C237EC, C237ED, C237VC, C237VD Manual (7)). Select the setting and push the middle of the control stick to enter the submenu.

Select RETURN and push the middle of the control stick to return to the previous menu from a submenu, or EXIT from the main menu to close the OSD menu.

Main Menu

2.3 Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

WDR fixes harsh contrast between bright and dark sections of the camera image. WDR is recommended for applications where light intensity varies throughout the day, or scenes with distinctly light and dark areas.

To configure WDR:

1.From the main menu, use the control stick to select BACKLIGHT.

2.Move the control stick / to select WDR. Push the middle of the control stick to configure WDR settings.

3.Select WEIGHT. Move the control stick / to select LOW, MIDDLE or HIGH. Higher weight means a longer shutter for dark areas of the image and shorter shutter for bright areas.

2.4 High Light Compensation (HLC)

HLC darkens extremely bright areas of the camera image to ensure clear renderings of objects in the scene. This is recommended for scenes with extremely bright areas as well as nighttime images with intense brightness (for example, to identify a vehicle with bright headlights).

Main Menu

To configure HLC:

1.From the main menu, use the control stick to select BACKLIGHT.

2.Move the control stick / to select HLC. Push the middle of the control stick to configure HLC settings.

3.Select MODE, then move the control stick / to configure. Select ALL DAY to enable HLC in both day and night conditions, or select NIGHT ONLY to only enable HLC when the IR LEDs are active.

4.Select LEVEL, then move the control stick / to configure. Setting a lower level increases the black mask area, auto exposure gain, and noise level in the camera image. It is recommended to keep the HLC level at the default setting.

2.5 Back Light Compensation (BLC)

BLC tones down areas of the image with strong background lighting to create clearer, more detailed renderings of objects in the foreground. BLC is recommended for local light compensation applications, meaning that strong backlit conditions will occur in the same area of the camera image, such as a doorway.

To configure BLC:

1. From the main menu, use the control stick to select BACKLIGHT.

Main Menu

2.Move the control stick / to select BLC. Push the middle of the control stick to configure the active BLC area.

3.Move the control stick / to configure the values for H-POS and V-POS to affect the horizontal and vertical position of the active area, then H-SIZE and V-SIZE to affect the horizontal and vertical size of the active area. The active area should cover a brightlylit area where objects are expected to appear. For example, if the camera image shows 2 floodlights and a doorway, the active area should cover the doorway only.

2.6 Digital Noise Reduction (DNR)

The camera features 2 types of noise reduction: 2D temporal noise reduction and 3D spatial noise reduction. DNR reduces the background noise in a low luminance environment. Removing noise from the camera image reduces your recording file size and reduces the appearance of graininess.

To configure digital noise reduction:

1. From the main menu, use the control stick to select DNR.

2.Move the control stick / to configure the level of noise reduction. Select LOW, MIDDLE or HIGH noise reduction — use a higher setting to increase low-light sensitivity and reduce the appearance of graininess in the camera image.
