source from remote locations throughout the home or office. It can also be used to
add live video monitoring as part of an e-Control XPanel solution or to an iPhone,
iPad, iPod Touch or Android device using our Crestron Mobile Pro control app.
High Quality Streaming
Video streaming capabilities include high performance H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG
compression formats, affording compatibility with Crestron devices and software as
well as computer web browsers. A versatile range of settings allows for optimizing
each individual stream for its intended application and the capabilities of the

Crestron CEN-NVS200
Network Video Streamer
Security Features
Intelligent security features include motion and tamper detection, text overlay and
privacy masking. Up to three motion detection windows can be defined to sense
movement in specific areas of the video image. The tamper detection function can
detect if the camera has been disabled or disconnected or if someone has blocked,
repositioned, defocused or spray painted the camera lens. Additionally, an external
sensor can be connected to the CEN-NVS200 via its digital input port. Automated
control signals can be triggered in response to any motion, tamper or external sensor
event, enabling logging and notification over the network via Crestron touch screens,
mobile devices and third-party applications.
Text overlay capability enables clear identification of the camera image, supporting
the display of custom captions, time stamp and frame rate. Privacy masking allows
up to five areas of the camera image to be obscured.
Live Recording
Built-in recording allows capturing live video, audio and snapshots right on board,
eliminating the need for external recording devices and minimizing network
bandwidth consumption. Recording can be started manually via a web browser or
automatically in response to motion detection or some other trigger. The MP4 video
and JPEG or BMP image files can be saved over the network to a computer or server
or locally to an onboard memory card (not included). Local storage affords
maximum reliability, allowing recording to continue even if network
communications are interrupted.
PTZ Camera Control
An RS-485 control port is included on the CEN-NVS200, providing for remote
control of a pan/tilt/zoom camera. Select serial drivers are built-in to support Pelco®
D and other popular models.
Power over Ethernet
The CEN-NVS200 gets its power right through the LAN wiring using PoE
technology. PoE (Power over Ethernet) eliminates the need for a local power supply
or any dedicated power wiring. A PoE injector (PWE-4803RU*) simply connects in
line with the LAN cable, allowing for installation at any convenient location. For
applications with multiple video streamers or other PoE powered devices, a Crestron
PoE switch (CEN-SW-POE-5, CEN-SWPOE-16 or CEN-SWPOE-24, all sold
separately) may be used, allowing numerous devices to be powered from a single
location.
*
PWE-4803RU included as part of CEN-NVS200-PWE package or available separately.

User Interface Overview
The CEN-NVS200 user interface allows configuration of the device, control of basic
camera functions, viewing of streaming video, viewing of system parameters and
performance of system maintenance functions.
Accessing the CEN-NVS200 User Interface
NOTE: Access to the CEN-NVS200 user interface must be performed from a PC
whose IP address is in the same IP subnet. The default configuration of the
CEN-NVS200 allows the IP address of the network video streamer to be
automatically assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server on
the local area network.
If a DHCP server does not exist on the network and 45 seconds have elapsed since
power was applied to the CEN-NVS200, the IP address of the CEN-NVS200
defaults to 169.254.0.99 and the subnet mask defaults to 255.255.0.0. If another
device uses that address, another address in the local link address space is selected
for the CEN-NVS200 (169.254.xxx.xxx).
NOTE: The latest software can be downloaded at www.crestron.com/software.
The CEN-NVS200 user interface can be accessed from a web browser or from
Crestron Toolbox™:
•
Access the CEN-NVS200 from a web browser if the IP address or host
name of the CEN-NVS200 is known.
NOTE: The default host name of the CEN-NVS200 is CEN-NVS200.
For additional information, refer to “Using a Web Browser” below.
•
Access the CEN-NVS200 from Crestron Toolbox if the CEN-NVS200 is
configured to operate in DHCP mode (default configuration). Crestron
ToolBox automatically discovers the IP address of the CEN-NVS200. For
additional information, refer to “Using Crestron ToolBox” on page 18.

NOTE: The “Client Settings” page allows selection of the stream to be viewed.
For additional information, refer to “Client Settings” which starts on page 24.
Before configuring video settings, be aware of the following:
•
For the best real-time video images, the network bandwidth should be large
enough to allow a transmission rate of greater than 20 image frames per
second (fps).
⇒ If the broadband network is above 1 Mbps, set Constant bit rate to
1000 Kbps or 1200 Kbps or set Fixed quality to Excellent. Set the
Maximum frame rate to 30 fps.
⇒ If the network bandwidth is above 512 Kbps, set the Constant bit rate
according to the network bandwidth and set the Maximum frame rate to
30 fps. If the images vary dramatically in the environment, it may be
preferable to slow the maximum frame rate down to 20 fps in order to
lower the rate of data transmission and allow for better video quality.
⇒ If the network bandwidth is below 512 Kbps, set the Constant bit rate
according to the network bandwidth and fine-tune the Maximum frame
rate to obtain the best performance. In a slow network, a larger frame
rate results in blurred images. In addition, video quality varies
depending on the number of users viewing on the network.
Performance may also suffer due to poor connectivity because of the
network’s burst constraint.
•
For the best video quality but less real time performance, set Fixed quality
to Detailed or Excellent and adjust the Maximum frame rate to match the
network bandwidth. If the network is slow and “broken” pictures result,
select TCP or HTTP as the MPEG-4 protocol option on the “Client
Settings” page as the more appropriate mode of transmission. The images
may suffer a time delay due to a slower connection. In addition, the delay
increases with more users.
•
To compromise between real time and video quality, set Fixed quality to
Good or better. Constant bit rate can also be set according to the network
bandwidth and adjust the Maximum frame rate. To adjust the Maximum
frame rate, start with 30 fps for best results and adjust the frame rate
downward but not below 15 fps. If the image quality does not improve,
select a lower Constant bit rate setting.
Frame Size: From the drop-down list, select one of the following frame sizes:
•
176x120 NTSC/176x144 PAL (QCIF)
NOTE: Due to the limitation of bandwidth for 3GPP, only QCIF is
supported for cell phone viewing.
•
352x240 NTSC/352x288 PAL (CIF)
•
704x480 NTSC/704x576 PAL (4CIF)
•
720x480 NTSC/720x576 PAL (D1)
Maximum frame rate: From the drop-down list, select the maximum refresh frame
rate in frames per second (fps). Note that for the largest video sizes the maximum
frame rate is automatically set to 15 fps.
Intra frame period: (Applicable to MPEG-4 mode only) From the drop-down list,
select the interval in seconds at which full frames are to be transmitted. A larger
interval improves performance but takes longer for initial connection.

Video quality: Do either of the following:
•
For H.264 mode, select Constant bit rate or Fixed quality:
⇒ Constant bit rate favors speed over smoothness. Select the desired
speed from the drop-down list.
⇒ Fixed quality favors smoothness over speed. Select the desired video
quality from the drop-down list. Fixed quality ranges from Medium to
Excellent. Medium favors performance over image quality. Excellent
favors image quality over performance. Performance is also subject to
network bandwidth and the number of users.
•
For JPEG mode: Select the desired video quality from the drop-down list.
Video quality ranges from Medium to Excellent. Medium favors
performance over image quality. Excellent favors image quality over
performance. Performance is also subject to network bandwidth and the
number of users.

Uploading and Upgrading
Crestron recommends using the latest programming software and that each device
contains the latest firmware to take advantage of the most recently released features.
However, before attempting to upload or upgrade it is necessary to establish
communication. Once communication has been established, files (for example,
firmware) can be transferred to the control system (and/or device). Finally, program
checks can be performed (such as changing the device ID or creating an IP table) to
ensure proper functioning.
NOTE: Crestron software and any files on the website are for authorized Crestron
dealers and Crestron Service Providers (CSPs) only. New users must register to
obtain access to certain areas of the site (including the FTP site).
Establishing Communication
Use Crestron Toolbox for communicating with the CEN-NVS200; refer to the
Crestron Toolbox help file for details. There is a single method of communication:
TCP/IP communication.
NOTE: Required for operation with a Crestron control system.
