AXIS 213 - Configuring the PTZ Network Camera
Using the Setup Tools
The following descriptions offer examples of the available features in the AXIS 213.
For details of each setting, please refer to the online help files which are available
from each page. Click
to access the help files.
Video & Image
To optimize the video images according to your requirements, modify the following
settings under Image Appearance:
• Resolution
• Compression
• Rotate Image
• Color Setting
• Brightness
Note: All configuration of images and overlays will affect the performance of the PTZ Network Camera,
depending on the usage and the available bandwidth. Please keep in mind the following when
changing the image settings:
• Lower compression improves image quality, but generates larger files
• Color uses more bandwidth than Black & White
• Rotating the image 90 or 270 degrees will lower the maximum frame rate
Overlay Settings
Include an image, e.g. your
Date & Time
company logo and date and
time with your own text which overlay
is placed on one line at the top image
or bottom of the video image.
See Overlay Image Settings, on
page 22 for instructions on
how to upload an overlay
image to the AXIS 213.

Video Stream
Define the maximum video stream time per session in seconds, minutes or hours.
When the set time has expired, a new stream can be started by refreshing the page in
the Web browser. For unlimited video stream time, set this value to 0.
Define the maximum frame rate (fps - frames per second) allowed for each viewer, to
avoid bandwidth problems on the network.
Test - For a preview of the image and overlay settings before saving, click Test. The
Brightness setting does not affect the Test image. When you are satisfied with the
settings, click Save.
Overlay Image Settings
An overlay image is an image included in the video image. This might, for example,
be your own company logo. Follow these instructions to upload and use an overlay
image:
1. Go to Setup | Video & Image | Overlay Image.
2. To upload the file (a logo or image) to the AXIS 213, click the Browse button
and locate it on your computer or server.
3. Click the Upload button and follow the on-screen instructions.
4. The image is now available in the Use overlay image drop-down list.
5. Click Save.
6. Go to Setup | Video & Image and modify the parameters under Overlay
Settings.
Overlay image requirements:
Image Formats
Image Size
•
The height and width of the overlay image in
pixels must be exactly divisible by 4.
Windows 24-bit BMP (full color)
•
Windows 4-bit BMP (16 colors)
•
OS/2 4-bit BMP (16 colors)
AXIS 213 - Configuring the PTZ Network Camera
Overlay image limitations:
•
If the image overlay and text overlay are larger than the video image, no overlay will be displayed. When also using a
text overlay, this will occupy 16 pixels in height and as many in width as the video image. Please consider this when
configuring the overlay image.
•
If the overlay is initially positioned so that part of it is outside the video image, it will be relocated so that it appears
over the video image, i.e. the entire image is always displayed.
•
The maximum overlay image size supported by the AXIS 213 is the same as the maximum image resolution. See Technical Specifications, on page 46.
Please use the online help files
for more information.
Advanced
Camera - To optimize the lighting settings according to your requirements, modify
the following settings under Lighting Conditions:
• White balance - the white balancing system in the AXIS 213 can
automatically detect white in the image and intelligently use this as a
reference for other colors.
• Exposure control - this setting is used to adapt to the amount/type of light
being used. If set to Manual, select the desired Shutter speed from the
drop-down list.
• Night vision - set the IR filter to on or off and click the Use IR Lamp button
to light up the IR lamp on the front of the camera. The lamp will
automatically switch off after 8 hours.
• Backlight compensation - this setting is used to make the subject appear
clearer against e.g. a bright background.
Notes: •If configured by the administrator under Live View Config | Layout | IR Buttons the viewer is able to
switch the IR lamp and IR filter on and off, directly from the Live View page.
• In certain situations, the white balancing system will not operate effectively. Problems may occur if the
image contains no white color at all, or if the dominant color is not white. In these circumstances, the
white balance may incorrectly be based on another visible color in the image, and colors may become
distorted. A pale background picture with reddish or blue foreground objects is very symptomatic of
this condition. In such cases it is recommended that a fixed white balance setting is selected.
23
24 AXIS 213 - Configuring the PTZ Network Camera

AXIS 213 - Troubleshooting
Symptoms, Possible Causes and Remedial Actions
Problems setting the IP address
Using ARP Ping
The IP address must be set within two minutes after the power has been applied to the
AXIS 213, restart the server and try again. Also, make sure the ping length is set to 408.
The AXIS 213 is located on a
different subnet
If the IP address intended for the AXIS 213 and the IP address of your computer are
located on different subnets, you will not be able to set the IP address. Contact your network administrator for an IP address on the same subnet as the computer you are performing the installation from.
The IP address is being used by Disconnect the power from the AXIS 213.
another device
Run the Ping command (in a Command/DOS window, type ping and the IP address of the
unit).
If you receive: Reply from <IP address>: bytes = 32; time = 10 ms..... - this means that
the IP address may already be in use by another device on your network. You must obtain
a new IP address and reinstall the unit.
If you receive: Request timed out - this means that the IP address is available for use
with your AXIS 213. In this case, check all cabling and reinstall the unit.
The AXIS 213 cannot be accessed from a Web browser
The IP address has been
changed by DHCP
1) Move the AXIS 213 to an isolated network or to one with no DHCP or BOOTP server. Set
the IP address again, using the ARP Ping command.
2) Access the unit and disable BOOTP and DHCP in the TCP/IP settings. Return the unit to
the main network. The unit now has a fixed IP address that will not change.
3) As an alternative to 2), if dynamic IP address via DHCP or BOOTP is required, select the
required service and then configure IP address change notification from the network settings. Return the unit to the main network. The unit will now have a dynamic IP address,
but will notify you if the address changes.
Other networking problems
Test the network cable by connecting it to another network device, then Ping that device
from your workstation.
Cannot send notifications, uploads, alarms, etc, to a destination outside the local network.
Firewall protection
The AXIS 213 can be configured to use a SOCKS server to reach networks on the other
side of a firewall/proxy server.
Your AXIS 213 is accessible locally, but not externally
Firewall protection
Check the Internet firewall with your system administrator.

for information.
Problems uploading own files
There is only limited space available for the upload of your own files. Try deleting one or
more existing files, to free up space.
Missing images in uploads
This can occur when trying to use a larger image buffer than is actually available. Try lowering the frame rate or the upload period.
Slow image update
Configuring, e.g. pre-buffers, hi-res images, high frame rate etc will reduce the performance of the AXIS 213.
Slow performance
Slow performance may be caused by e.g. heavy network traffic, many users with access to
unit, low performing client, use of features such as Event handling., Image rotation.
Bad snapshot images
Display incorrectly configured
on your workstation
In Display Properties, configure your display to show at least 65000 colors, i.e. at least
16-bit.
Using only 16 or 256 colors on your display will produce dithering artifacts in the image.
Audio problems

proxy server
administrator to do this.
No full-duplex function
Incorrect configuration. Check the setting in the camera’s Setup pages.
Sound card does not support full-duplex. For information on how to check if your sound
card supports full-duplex, please visit www.axis.com and see the support section for Axis
camera products.
Poor performance
Too many users/clients connected. Try limiting the number of clients allowed to connect.
Low bandwidth. Reduce the Speed setting on the Audio settings page. Setting lower speed
will reduce any break-up in the sound, but will also increase the transmission delay. If
running in Full-Duplex mode, try switching to Half-Duplex mode.
Whining or screeching sound
from speakers (feedback)
Poor positioning of speakers and/or microphone. Relocate the speakers or microphone so
that they do not point towards each other, and/or lower the volume.
The audio module works
locally, but not externally
Check the Internet firewall with your system administrator.
Check if you need to configure the default router settings.
