Section 1 - Product Overview
Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the DVS-310-1 Video Encoder. The DVS-310-1 is a versatile solution that allows
you to make the most of your existing analog surveillance infrastructure. The DVS-310-1 is a standalone system with a
built-in video encoder that converts an analog camera into a full-featured IP-based system. The DVS-310-1 can be remotely accessed
and controlled using a Web browser over an Intranet or the Internet.
Features
Digitally Transform Existing Hardware
The DVS-310-1 Video Encoder makes it possible to integrate a pre-existing analog surveillance infrastructure into a fully-functional IP
surveillance system. The DVS-310-1 is an ideal choice for banks, airports, factories, government buildings, prisons, and traffic surveillance
applications - any location where surveillance equipment is already installed and functioning.
Manage, Record, and View Video with Ease
The hardware encoder supports H.264 / MPEG-4 / MJPEG video with frame rates of up to 30fps at D1 resolution. E-mail notifications help
to keep you up to date whenever a video event occurs. Event recordings can be stored directly to an SD card, or saved to an FTP server.
Simplify Surveillance with Advanced Alarms and Events
Alarm handling features provide alerts in the event of loss of video or loss of network connection. Motion alarms with configurable detection
areas allow for effective surveillance and help to mitigate the need for constant human supervision. A buffer system allows the server to
capture images to the built-in SD card slot before and after an event occurs.

RS-485
You may configure the RS-485 settings or communication specifications (baud rate, data bit, stop bit, and parity bit) for your Video
Encoder. RS-485 is a serial communication method for computers and devices. RS-485 is used to control a PAN/TILT apparatus, such
as an external camera enclosure.
Support PAN- When Support PAN-TILT is enabled, a control panel will be
TILT: displayed on the Live Video page allowing control through
RS-485 for an external camera enclosure.
Protocol: Select one protocol type from the pull-down menu.
ID: This ID is the identifier for RS-485 devices. IDs range from
1 to 255.
Baud Rate: Baud Rate is a speed measurement for communication
between a transmitter and receiver which indicates the
number of bit transfers per second. A higher baud rate will
reduce the distance of the two devices (transmitter and
receiver). Values range from 2400 (default) to 19200 bps.
Data Bit: This value is the number of data bits in a transmission. The data bit can be 7 or
8 (default).
RS-485
Pin Block
Parity Bit: Parity is a form of error checking used in serial communication. For even and
odd parities, the serial port sets the parity bit (the last bit after the data bits) to a
value to ensure that the transmission has an even or odd number of logic-high
bits. For example, if the data is 011, for even parity, the parity bit is 0 to keep the
number of logic-high bits even. If the parity is odd, the parity bit is 1, resulting in
3 logic-high bits. Parity can be set to No (none), Even, and Odd.
Stop Bit: The stop bit is used to signal the end of communication for a single packet. The
more bits used for stop bits, the greater the lenience in synchronizing the different
clocks but the slower the data transmission rate. The stop bit can be set to 1 or
2. The default value is 1.

Section 4 - Security
Using & Configuring the DVS-310-1
D-Link’s DVS-310-1 is a versatile and cost-effective Video Encoder offering both video and audio monitoring. It can
also serve as a powerful surveillance system for security applications. This section explains how to view the Video
Encoder from either the Internet or from inside your internal network.
Materials Needed:
• 1 DVS-310-1 Video Encoder
• 1 Ethernet Cable
• A Wired or Wireless Router
• Ethernet based PC for system configuration
Setting Up the DVS-310-1 For Use Behind a Router
Installing a DVS-310-1 Video Encoder on your network is an easy 4-step procedure:
1. Assign a Local IP Address to Your Video Encoder
2. View the Video Encoder Using Your Internet Explorer Web Browser
3. Access the Router with Your Web Browser
4. Open Virtual Server Ports to Enable Remote Image Viewing
This section is designed to walk you through the setup process of installing your Video Encoder behind a router and
enabling remote video viewing. For the basic setup of the DVS-310-1, follow the steps outlined in the Quick Installation
Guide.
D-Link DVS-310-1 User Manual
49
Section 4 - Security
After you have completed the setup of the DVS-310-1 outlined in the Quick Installation Guide you will have an
operating Video Encoder that has an assigned IP Address. When you use a router to share the Internet with
one or more PCs, the IP Address assigned to the Video Encoder will be a local IP Address. This allows viewing
within your Local Area Network (LAN). Later, the router can eventually be configured to allow remote viewing
of video over the Internet.
1. Assign a Local IP Address to Your Video Encoder
Run the Setup Wizard program from the CD included with the DVS-310-1. Follow the steps in the Quick Installation
Guide to configure the DVS-310-1. The Video Encoder will be assigned a local IP Address that allows it to be
recognized by the router. Write down this IP Address for future reference.
This is the IP Address assigned to your Video Encoder (192.168.0.120 is only an example). You will probably have a
different IP Address.

2. View the Video Encoder Using Your Internet Explorer Web Browser
Run your Internet Explorer Web browser. In the address bar, type in the IP Address that was assigned to the Video
Encoder by the Installation Wizard program. The DVS-310-1 Home Page appears with a window displaying live video
from the Video Encoder. You are able to view this screen from any PC running Internet Explorer on your LAN.

Router Set-Up and Installation
3. Access the Router with Your Web Browser
The following steps generally apply to any router that you have on your network. A D-Link Router is used as an example
to clarify the configuration process. Configure the initial settings of the router by following the steps outlined in your
own router’s installation guide.
If you have cable or DSL Internet service, you will most likely have a dynamically assigned WAN IP Address. ‘Dynamic’
means that your router’s WAN IP address can change from time to time depending on your ISP. A dynamic WAN IP
Address identifies your router on the public network and allows it to access the Internet. To find out what your router’s
WAN IP Address is, go to the Status menu on your router and locate the WAN information for your router (as shown
in the screenshot on the right). The WAN IP Address
will be listed. This will be the address that you will need
to type in your Web browser to view your video feed
over the Internet.
Your WAN IP Address will be listed on the router’s
Status > Device Info page.
D-Link DVS-310-1 User Manual
52
Section 4 - Security
Note: Because a dynamic WAN IP can change from time to time depending on your ISP, you may want to obtain a
Static IP address from your ISP. A Static IP address is a fixed IP address that will not change over time and will be
more convenient for you to use to access your Video Encoder from a remote location. The Static IP Address will also
allow you to access your Video Encoder attached to your router over the Internet.
4. Open Server Ports to Enable Remote Image Viewing
The firewall security features built into the router prevent users from accessing the video from the DVS-310-1 over the
Internet. The router connects to the Internet over a series of numbered ports. The ports normally used by the DVS310-1 are blocked from access over the Internet. Therefore, these ports need to be made accessible over the Internet.
This is accomplished using the Port Forwarding function on the router. The ports used by the Video Encoder must be
opened through the router for remote access to your Video Encoder. Port Forwarding is accessed by clicking on the
Advanced tab of the router screen.
Follow these steps to configure your router’s Port Forwarding settings:
1. Click on one of the empty checkboxes.
2. Enter a unique name for the new entry.
3. Enter your Video Encoder’s local IP Address (e.g.,
192.168.1.169) in the IP Address field.
4. If you are using the default port settings, enter 80 into the Start
and End field. Click Save Settings.
5. Select both TCP and UDP for the traffic type.
6. For some routers, Scheduling should be set to Always so
that the camera images can be accessed at any time.
D-Link DVS-310-1 User Manual
53
Section 4 - Security
Please make sure to check the box next to the camera name on the Port Forwarding List to enable your settings.
Important: Some ISPs block access to port 80 and other commonly used Internet ports to conserve bandwidth. Check
with your ISP so that you can open the appropriate ports accordingly. If your ISP does not pass traffic on port 80, you
will need to change the port from 80 to something else, such as 800. Not all routers are the same, so refer to your user
manual for specific instructions on how to open ports.

Section 5 - Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
1. Why is the Power LED not lighting up?
The power supply used might be at fault. Confirm that you are using the provided power supply, which is DC 12V, for
the Video Encoder. Also verify that the power supply is securely connected. If the device is functioning but the LED
is not illuminated, the LED may be disabled. Open the firewall configuration page and click MAINTENANCE. At the
bottom of the page, there will be an option to turn on or turn off the LED.
2. Why does the Video Encoder work locally but not remotely?
This might be caused by firewall protection. Check with your system administrator to see if you are behind a firewall.
The firewall may need to have some settings changed in order for the Video Encoder to be accessible outside your LAN.
Make sure that the Video Encoder is not conflicting with any Web server you may have running on your network.
The default router setting might be another possible reason. Check that the configuration of your router’s settings allow
the Video Encoder to be accessed outside your local LAN.
3. Why are no images available through the Web browser?
ActiveX controls might be disabled within Internet Explorer. Check that ActiveX has been enabled in the Internet
Options menu. You may also need to change the security settings on your browser to allow the ActiveX plug-in to be
installed. If you are using a version of Internet Explorer before version 6.0, you will need to upgrade Internet Explorer
in order to view the streaming video transmitted by the Video Encoder.
