2.2 Connection
•
Connecting to the RJ-45
Connect a standard RJ-45 cable to the network port of the network camera. Generally a
cross-over cable is used for directly connection to PC, while a direct cable is used for connection
to a switch or hub.
•
Connecting Alarms
AI(Alarm In) :
You can use external devices to signal the VK2-1080VFD to react on events. Mechanical or
electrical switches can be wired to the AI (Alarm In) and G (Ground) connectors in the bottom.
G(Ground) :
Connect the ground side of the alarm input and/or alarm output to the G (Ground) connector.
Alarm Out :
The VK2-1080VFD can activate external devices such as buzzers or lights. Connect the device
to the AO (Alarm Out) and G (Ground) connectors.
•
Connecting Video Output for set up only
Video Output is used for an easy zoom and focus
control when commissioning the camera. Set Video
Switch (SW2 on the board) to On position to output
the video signal. Video Output is restricted to
VGA(640x480) resolution.
Connect your Video cable unit to J5 on the board, as
shown on the adjacent illustration.
Caution: After the camera has been focused, you must set Video Switch SW2 to the OFF
position to provide the best performance of the Network Camera.
•
Connecting the Power (If not using PoE)
Connect the power of 12VDC 330mA for the camera. Connect the positive (+) pole to the ‘+’
position and the negative (-) pole to the ‘-‘position.

2.2 Network Connection and IP assignment
When a VK2-1080VFD is first connected to the network it has a default IP address of 192.168.30.220
So, it will probably be necessary to allocate an IP address to the device with the “Smart Manager”
utility on the CD.
1.
Connect the VK2-1080VFD / device to the network and power up.
2.
Start SmartManager utility, available on the supplied CD, the main window will be displayed, after
a short while any network devices connected to the network will be displayed in the list.
3.
Select the camera on the list and right click the mouse. You will see the pop-up menu as below.
4.
Enter the appropriate IP address.
Note: For more information, refer to the Smart Manger User’s Manual.

3. Operation
Before powering the camera, installation must be complete. The camera completes a
configuration sequence taking approximately 40 seconds from powering up. Once completed
the LED will be a constant Green.
NOTES
- If the DHCP is enabled but the camera is not connected to a DHCP server, the camera will
be set to a default IP address of192.168.30.220 and will try to obtain an IP address from a
DHCP server every two seconds.
- Network and processor bandwidth limitations might cause the video stream to pause or
appear pixelated when an increased number of Web-interface users connect to the camera.
Decrease the images per second, resolution, compression, or bit rate settings of the Webinterface video streams to compensate for network or processor limitations.
3.1 Minimum conditions for using web browser

If you suspect a problem is being caused by incorrect configuration or some other minor
problem, consult the troubleshooting guide below.
4.2 Upgrading the Firmware
Firmware is software that determines the functionality of the network camera. One of your
first actions when troubleshooting a problem should be to check the current firmware. The
latest version may contain a correction that fixes your particular problem. The current
14
firmware version in your camera is displayed on the Basic Configuration or About. For the
latest firmware of the camera, please contact with your product administrator.
Detailed instructions on how to perform the upgrade process are provided with each new
release. See also the Maintenance/ Upgrade for more information.
4.3 General Troubleshooting
The following list covers some of the problems that may be encountered and suggests how
to remedy them:
1. The camera cannot be accessed by some clients.
→ If using a proxy server, try disabling the proxy setting in your browser. Check all cabling
and connectors.
2. The camera works locally, but not externally.
→ Check if there are firewall settings that need to be adjusted. Check if there are router
settings that need to be configured.
3. Poor or intermittent network connection.
→ If using a network switch, check that the port on that device uses the same setting for the
network connection type (speed/duplex).
4. The camera cannot be accessed via a host name.
→ Check that the host name and DNS server settings are correct.
5. Not possible to log in.
→ When HTTPS is enabled, ensure that the correct protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) is used.
When attempting to log in, you may need to manually type in http or https in the browser's
address bar.
6. No image using Refresh and/or slow updating of images.
→ If images are very complex, try limiting the number of clients accessing the camera.
7. Images only shown in black & white.
→ Check the Video & Image setting.
8. Blurred images.
→ Refocus the camera.
15
9. Poor image quality.
→ Increased lighting can often improve image quality. Check that there is sufficient lighting at
the monitored location. Check all image and lighting settings.
10. Rolling dark bands or flickering in image.
→ Try adjusting the Exposure Control setting under AE and AWB part.
11. H.264 not displayed in the client.
→ Check that the correct network interface is selected in the Video & Image/Stream.
12. Multicast H.264 not displayed in the client.
→ Check with your network administrator that the multicast addresses used by the camera
are valid for your network. Check that the Enable multicast checkbox are enabled in the
System/Network/RTP tab. Checks with your network administrator to see if there is a firewall
preventing viewing.
13. Multicast H.264 only accessible by local clients.
→ Check if your router supports multicasting, or if the router settings between the client and
the server need to be configured. The TTL value may need to be increased.
14. Colour saturation is different in H.264 and Motion JPEG.
→ Modify the settings for your graphics adapter. Please see the adapter's documentation for
more information.
15. Poor audio quality.
→ Too many users/clients connected to the camera may affect the sound quality adversely.
Try limiting the number of clients allowed to connect.
16. Distorted audio.
→ Check that the correct Audio Input source is selected. Select Microphone for a connected
external microphone. Select Line for a connected line in source.
NOTE
If you cannot find the help you require, please see the User's Manual, or contact with your
network administrator.
