H.264 / MPEG-4 Protocol Options
H.264/MPEG-4 Protocol Options
Depending on your network environment, there are four transmission modes of H.264 or MPEG-4
streaming:
UDP unicast: This protocol allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However, network
packets may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be broken. Activate UDP connection
when occasions require time-sensitive responses and the video quality is less important. Note that each
unicast client connecting to the server takes up additional bandwidth and the Network Camera allows up
to ten simultaneous accesses.
UDP multicast: This protocol allows multicast-enabled routers to forward network packets to all clients
requesting streaming media. This helps to reduce the network transmission load of the Network Camera
while serving multiple clients at the same time. Note that to utilize this feature, the Network Camera must
be configured to enable multicast streaming at the same time. For more information, please refer to
RTSP Streaming on page 44.
TCP: This protocol guarantees the complete delivery of streaming data and thus provides better video
quality. The downside of this protocol is that its real-time effect is not as good as that of the UDP protocol.
HTTP: This protocol allows the same quality as TCP protocol without needing to open specific ports for
streaming under some network environments. Users inside a firewall can utilize this protocol to allow
streaming data through.

IEEE 802.1x Advanced Mode
Enable this function if your network environment uses IEEE 802.1x, which is a port-based network
access control. The network devices, intermediary switch/access point/hub, and RADIUS server must
support and enable 802.1x settings.
The 802.1x standard is designed to enhance the security of local area networks, which provides
authentication to network devices (clients) attached to a network port (wired or wireless). If all certificates
between client and server are verified, a point-to-point connection will be enabled; if authentication fails,
access on that port will be prohibited. 802.1x utilizes an existing protocol, the Extensible Authentication
Protocol (EAP), to facilitate communication.
■ The components of a protected network with 802.1x authentication:
Supplicant
(Network Camera)
Authenticator
(Network Switch)
Authentication Server
(RADIUS Server)
1. Supplicant: A client end user (camera), which requests authentication.
2. Authenticator (an access point or a switch): A “go between” which restricts unauthorized end users
from communicating with the authentication server.
3. Authentication server (usually a RADIUS server): Checks the client certificate and decides whether to
accept the end user’s access request.
■ VIVOTEK Network Cameras support two types of EAP methods to perform authentication: EAP-PEAP
and EAP-TLS.
Please follow the steps below to enable 802.1x settings:
1. Before connecting the Network Camera to the protected network with 802.1x, please apply a digital
certificate from a Certificate Authority (ie. MIS of your company) which can be validated by a RADIUS
server.
2. Connect the Network Camera to a PC or notebook outside of the protected LAN. Open the
configuration page of the Network Camera as shown below. Select EAP-PEAP or EAP-TLS as the
EAP method. In the following blanks, enter your ID and password issued by the CA, then upload
related certificate(s).
38 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
3. When all settings are complete, move the Network Camera to the protected LAN by connecting it to an
802.1x enabled switch. The devices will then start the authentication automatically.
NOTE
► The authentication process for 802.1x:
1. The Certificate Authority (CA) provides the required signed certificates to the Network Camera (the
supplicant) and the RADIUS Server (the authentication server).
2. A Network Camera requests access to the protected LAN using 802.1X via a switch (the authenticator).
The client offers its identity and client certificate, which is then forwarded by the switch to the RADIUS
Server, which uses an algorithm to authenticate the Network Camera and returns an acceptance or
rejection back to the switch.
3. The switch also forwards the RADIUS Server’s certificate to the Network Camera.
4. Assuming all certificates are validated, the switch then changes the Network Camera’s state to
authorized and is allowed access to the protected network via a pre-configured port.

QoS (Quality of Service) Advanced Mode
Quality of Service refers to a resource reservation control mechanism, which guarantees a certain quality
to different services on the network. Quality of service guarantees are important if the network capacity
is insufficient, especially for real-time streaming multimedia applications. Quality can be defined as, for
instance, a maintained level of bit rate, low latency, no packet dropping, etc.
The following are the main benefits of a QoS-aware network:
■ The ability to prioritize traffic and guarantee a certain level of performance to the data flow.
■ The ability to control the amount of bandwidth each application may use, and thus provide higher
reliability and stability on the network.
Requirements for QoS
To utilize QoS in a network environment, the following requirements must be met:
■ All network switches and routers in the network must include support for QoS.
■ The network video devices used in the network must be QoS-enabled.
QoS models
CoS (the VLAN 802.1p model)
IEEE802.1p defines a QoS model at OSI Layer 2 (Data Link Layer), which is called CoS, Class of
Service. It adds a 3-bit value to the VLAN MAC header, which indicates the frame priority level from 0
(lowest) to 7 (highest). The priority is set up on the network switches, which then use different queuing
disciplines to forward the packets.
Below is the setting column for CoS. Enter the VLAN ID of your switch (0~4095) and choose the priority
for each application (0~7).
If you assign Video the highest level, the switch will handle video packets first.
NOTE
► The VLAN Switch (802.1p) is required. The web browsing may fail if the CoS setting is incorrect.
► Class of Service technologies do not guarantee a level of service in terms of bandwidth and delivery
time; they offer a "best-effort." Users can think of CoS as "coarsely-grained" traffic control and QoS as
"finely-grained" traffic control.
► Though CoS is simple to manage, it lacks scalability and does not offer end-to-end guarantees since it
is based on L2 protocol.
40 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
QoS/DSCP (the DiffServ model)
DSCP-ECN defines QoS at Layer 3 (Network Layer). The Differentiated Services (DiffServ) model is
based on packet marking and router queuing disciplines. The marking is done by adding a field to the
IP header, called the DSCP (Differentiated Services Codepoint). This is a 6-bit field that provides 64
different class IDs. It gives an indication of how a given packet is to be forwarded, known as the Per Hop
Behavior (PHB). The PHB describes a particular service level in terms of bandwidth, queueing theory,
and dropping (discarding the packet) decisions. Routers at each network node classify packets according
to their DSCP value and give them a particular forwarding treatment; for example, how much bandwidth
to reserve for it.
Below are the setting options of DSCP (DiffServ Codepoint). Specify the DSCP value for each application
(0~63).

HTTP Advanced Mode
To utilize HTTP authentication, make sure that your have set a password for the Network Camera first;
please refer to Security on page 26 for details.
Authentication: Depending on your network security requirements, the Network Camera provides two
types of security settings for an HTTP transaction: basic and digest.
If basic authentication is selected, the password is sent in plain text format and there can be potential
risks of being intercepted. If digest authentication is selected, user credentials are encrypted using MD5
algorithm and thus provide better protection against unauthorized accesses.
HTTP port / Secondary HTTP port: By default, the HTTP port is set to 80 and the secondary HTTP port is
set to 8080. They can also be assigned to another port number between 1025 and 65535. If the ports are
incorrectly assigned, the following warning messages will be displayed:
To access the Network Camera on the LAN, both the HTTP port and secondary HTTP port can be used
to access the Network Camera. For example, when the HTTP port is set to 80 and the secondary HTTP
port is set to 8080, refer to the list below for the Network Camera’s IP address.

■ The RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) is used to deliver video data to the clients. By default, the RTP
port for video is set to 5556.
■ The RTCP (Real-time Transport Control Protocol) allows the Network Camera to transmit the data by
monitoring the Internet traffic volume. By default, the RTCP port for video is set to 5557.
The ports can be changed to values between 1025 and 65535. The RTP port must be an even number
and the RTCP port is the RTP port number plus one, and thus is always an odd number. When the RTP
port changes, the RTCP port will change accordingly.
If the RTP ports are incorrectly assigned, the following warning message will be displayed:
Multicast settings for stream 1 ~ 2: Click the items to display the detailed configuration information.
Select the Always multicast option to enable multicast for stream 1 ~ 2.
Unicast video transmission delivers a stream through point-to-point transmission; multicast, on the other
hand, sends a stream to the multicast group address and allows multiple clients to acquire the stream at
the same time by requesting a copy from the multicast group address. Therefore, enabling multicast can
effectively save Internet bandwith.
The ports can be changed to values between 1025 and 65535. The multicast RTP port must be an even
number and the multicast RTCP port number is the multicast RTP port number plus one, and thus is
always odd. When the multicast RTP port changes, the multicast RTCP port will change accordingly.
If the multicast RTP video ports are incorrectly assigned, the following warning message will be
displayed:

Video Quality Settings Advanced Mode
Click the stream item to display the detailed information. This Network Camera offers real-time H.264,
MPEG-4 and MJEPG compression standards (Triple Codec) for real-time viewing.
If H.264 / MPEG-4 mode is selected, the video is streamed via RTSP protocol. There are four parameters
for you to adjust the video performance:
■ Frame size
You can set up different video resolution for different viewing devices. For example, set a smaller
frame size and lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones and a larger video size and a higher
bit rate for live viewing on web browsers. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximum refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for smoother video
quality.
If the power line frequency is set to 50Hz, the frame rates are selectable at 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps,
8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps, and 25fps. If the power line frequency is set to 60Hz, the frame rates are
selectable at 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps, 25fps, and 30fps. You can also select
Customize and manually enter a value. The frame rate will decrease if you select a higher resolution.
54 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
■ Intra frame period
Determine how often to plant an I frame. The shorter the duration, the more likely you will get better
video quality, but at the cost of higher network bandwidth consumption. Select the intra frame period
from the following durations: 1/4 second, 1/2 second, 1 second, 2 seconds, 3 seconds, and 4 seconds.
■ Video quality
A complex scene generally produces a larger file size, meaning that higher bandwidth will be needed
for data transmission. Therefore, if Constant bit rate is selected, the bandwidth utilization is fixed at
a selected level, resulting in mutable video quality performance. The bit rates are selectable at the
following rates: 20Kbps, 30Kbps, 40Kbps, 50Kbps, 64Kbps, 128Kbps, 256Kbps, 512Kbps, 768Kbps,
1Mbps, 2Mbps, 3Mbps, 4Mbps, 6Mbps, and 8Mbps. You can also select Customize and manually
enter a value.
On the other hand, if Fixed quality is selected, all frames are transmitted with the same quality;
bandwidth utilization is therefore unpredictable. The video quality can be adjusted to the following
settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, and Excellent. You can also select Customize and
manually enter a value.
If JPEG mode is selected, the Network Camera continuously sends JPEG images to the client, producing
a moving effect similar to a filmstrip. Every single JPEG image transmitted guarantees the same
image quality, which in turn comes at the expense of variable bandwidth usage. Because the media
contents are a combination of JPEG images, no audio data is transmitted to the client. There are three
parameters provided in MJPEG mode to control the video performance:
■ Frame size
You can set up different video resolution for different viewing devices. For example, set a smaller
frame size and lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones and a larger video size and a higher
bit rate for live viewing on web browsers. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximum refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for smoother video
quality.
■ Video quality
The video quality can be adjusted to the following settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, and
Excellent. You can also select Customize and manually enter a value.
NOTE
► Video quality and fixed quality refers to the compression rate, so a lower value will produce higher
quality.
► Converting high-quality video may significantly increase the CPU loading, and you may encounter
streaming disconnection or video loss while capturing a complicated scene. In the event of occurance,
we suggest you customize a lower video resolution or reduce the frame rate to obtain smooth video.

► How does motion detection work?
A
C
B
D
There are two motion detection parameters: Sensitivity and Percentage. In the illustration above,
frame A and frame B are two sequential images. Pixel differences between the two frames are
detected and highlighted in gray (frame C) and will be compared with the sensitivity setting. Sensitivity
is a value that expresses the sensitivity to moving objects. Higher sensitivity settings are expected to
detect slight movements while smaller sensitivity settings will neglect them. When the sensitivity is set
to 70%, the Network Camera defines the pixels in the purple areas as “alerted pixels” (frame D).
Percentage is a value that expresses the proportion of “alerted pixels” to all pixels in the motion
detection window. In this case, 50% of pixels are identified as “alerted pixels”. When the percentage is
set to 30%, the motions are judged to exceed the defined threshold; therefore, the motion window will
be outlined in red.
For applications that require a high level of security management, it is suggested to use higher
sensitivity settings and smaller percentage values.

remote server as backup.
Remote Log
You can configure the Network Camera to send the system log file to a remote server as a log backup.
Before utilizing this feature, it is suggested that the user install a log-recording tool to receive system log
messages from the Network Camera. An example is Kiwi Syslog Daemon. Visit http://www.kiwisyslog.
com/kiwi-syslog-daemon-overview/.
Follow the steps below to set up the remote log:
1. In the IP address text box, enter the IP address of the remote server.
2. In the port text box, enter the port number of the remote server.
3. When completed, select Enable remote log and click Save to enable the setting.
Current Log
This column displays the system log in chronological order. The system log is stored in the Network
Camera’s buffer area and will be overwritten when reaching a certain limit.

Appendix
URL Commands for the Network Camera
Overview
For some customers who already have their own web site or web control application, the Network
Camera/Video Server can be easily integrated through URL syntax. This section specifies the external
HTTP-based application programming interface. The HTTP-based camera interface provides the
functionality to request a single image, control camera functions (PTZ, output relay etc.), and get and set
internal parameter values. The image and CGI-requests are handled by the built-in Web server.
Style Convention
In URL syntax and in descriptions of CGI parameters, text within angle brackets denotes content that
is to be replaced with either a value or a string. When replacing the text string, the angle brackets
should also be replaced. An example of this is the description of the name for the server, denoted with
<servername> in the URL syntax description below, that is replaced with the string myserver in the URL
syntax example further down in the page.
URL syntax is denoted with the word "Syntax:" written in bold face followed by a box with the referenced
syntax as shown below. For example, name of the server is written as <servername> and is intended to
be replaced with the name of the actual server. This can either be a name, e.g., "mywebcam" or "thecam.
adomain.net" or the associated IP number for the server, e.g., 192.168.0.220.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg
Description of returned data is written with "Return:" in bold face followed by the returned data in a box. All data is
returned in HTTP format, i.e., each line is separated with a Carriage Return and Line Feed (CRLF) printed as \r\n.
Return:
HTTP/1.0 <HTTP code> <HTTP text>\r\n
URL syntax examples are written with "Example:" in bold face followed by a short description and a light grey box
with the example.
Example: request a single snapshot image
http://mywebserver/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg
User's Manual - 87
VIVOTEK
3. General CGI URL Syntax and Parameters
CGI parameters are written in lower-case and as one word without any underscores or other separators.
When the CGI request includes internal camera parameters, these parameters must be written exactly as
they are named in the camera or video server. The CGIs are organized in functionally-related directories
under the cgi-bin directory. The file extension .cgi is required.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/<subdir>[/<subdir>...]/<cgi>.<ext>
[?<parameter>=<value>[&<parameter>=<value>...]]
Example: Get digital input #0 status
http://mywebserver/cgi-bin/dido/getdi.cgi?di0
