Installation
In this manual, "User" refers to whoever has access to the Network Camera, and
"Administrator" refers to the person who can configure the Network Camera and grant
user access to the camera.
Hardware installation
Please verify that your product package contains all the
accessories listed in the foregoing Package Contents.
Depending on the user’s application, an Ethernet cable
may be needed. The Ethernet cable should meet the specs
of UTP Category 5 and not exceed 100 meters in length.
Connect the power adapter jack to the Network
Camera before plugging in to the power socket. This will
reduce the risk of accidental electric shock.
Upon powering up, the front blue LED will become lighted first and then the device will go
through booting process.
During the booting process, both blue and red LEDs will be on
and the Network Camera will standby for getting IP address. After getting IP Address, the
LED will blink blue every second.
The Network Camera will first detect Ethernet. If it does not connect to Ethernet, the
Network Camera will try WLAN. During the searching and connecting process to the
wireless access point or station, the red LED of the Network Camera will flash every
second.
Until the Network Camera connects to the other wireless device, the red LED
will become lighted.
Operating in either network mode, the blue LED will flash every
second as heartbeat to indicate alive.
To install in Ethernet
Make sure the Ethernet is firmly connected to a switch hub. After attaching the Ethernet
cable plug in the power adapter. If the LED turns out to be steady blue, go to next
paragraph “Software installation”. If the Ethernet is not available, Network Camera will
switch to wireless LAN mode.
User's Manual - 7
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
To install in wireless LAN
If the Ethernet is not available while power on, the Network Camera will search for any
access point with the SSID “default”. Once any access point is found, the LED will turn
blue to wait for installation. If the network environment cannot meet the default settings,
install Network Camera in Ethernet to proceed with wireless LAN configuration.
Software installation
At the end of the hardware installation, users can use Installation Wizard program
included in the product CDROM to find the location of the Network Camera. There may be
many Network Cameras in the local network. Users can differentiate the Network
Cameras with the serial number. The serial number is printed on the labels on the carton
and the back of the Network Camera body. Please refer to the user’s manual of
Installation Wizard for detail.

Once installation is complete, the Administrator should proceed to the next
section "Initial access to the Network Camera" for necessary checks and
configurations.
Initial Access to the Network Camera
Check Network Settings
The Network Camera can be connected either before or immediately after software
installation onto the Local Area Network. The Administrator should complete the
network settings on the configuration page, including the correct subnet mask and IP
address of gateway and DNS. Ask your network administrator or Internet service
provider for the detail information. By default the Network Camera requires the
Administrator to run installation every time it reboots. If the network settings are to
remain unchanged, disable the Install option. Refer to “Network settings” on the
System Configuration page for details. If any setting is entered incorrectly and cannot
proceed to setting up the Network Camera, restore the factory settings following the
steps in the “Troubleshooting” chapter of the Appendix.
Add Password to prevent Unauthorized Access
The default Administrator’s password is blank and the Network Camera initially will not
ask for any password. The Administrator should immediately implement a new
password as a matter of prudent security practice. Once the Administrator’s password
is saved, the Network Camera will ask for the user’s name and password before each
access. The Administrator can set up a maximum of twenty (20) user accounts. Each
user can access the Network Camera except to perform system configuration. Some
critical functions are exclusive for the Administrator, such as system configuration, user
administration, and software upgrades. The user name for the Administrator is
permanently assigned as “root”. Once the password is changed, the browser will
display an authentication window to ask for the new password.
Once the password
is set, there is no provision to recover the Administrator’s password.
The
only option is to restore to the original factory default settings.

Installing plug-in
For the initial access to the Network Camera in Windows, the web browser may prompt
for permission to install a new plug-in for the Network Camera. Permission request
depends on the Internet security settings of the user’s PC or notebook. If the highest
security level is set, the computer may prohibit any installation and execution attempt.
This plug-in has been registered for certificate and is used to display the video in the
browser. Users may click on
to proceed. If the web browser does not allow the
user to continue to install, check the Internet security option and lower the security
levels or contact your IT or networking supervisor for help.

Client settings
At the initial access to the “Connection type” page in Windows, the web browser will ask
for a new plug-in installation, the plug-in being the Network Camera. This plug-in has
been registered for certification and can be used to change the parameters at the
client’s site. The user may click on
to install the plug-in. If the web browser
does not allow the user to complete the installation, check the Internet security to
lower the security level or contact your IT or networking supervisor.
There are two settings for the client side. One is “Media Options” for users to
determine the type of media to be streaming. The other is “Protocol Options” which
allows choices on connection protocol between client and server. There are two
protocols choices to optimize your usage – UDP and TCP.
The UDP protocol allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However, some
packets may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be obscured.
The TCP protocol allows for less packet loss and produces a more accurate video
display. The downside with this protocol is that the real-time effect is worse than that
with the UDP protocol.
User's Manual - 15
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
If no special need is required, UDP protocol is recommended. Generally speaking, the
client’s choice will be in the order of UDP Ш TCP.
After the Network Camera is
connected successfully, “Protocol Option” will indicate the selected protocol. The
selected protocol will be recorded in the user's PC and will be used for the next
connection. If the network environment is changed, or the user wants to let the web
browser to detect again, manually select the UDP protocol, save, and return HOME to
re-connect.

Administrator’s capability
Fine-tuning for Best Performance
Best performance generally equates to the fastest image refresh rate with the best
video quality, and at the lowest network bandwidth as possible. The three factors,
“Maximum frame rate”, “Constant bit rate”, and “Fix quality” on the Audio and Video
Configuration page, are correlative to allow for achieving the best performance
possible.
For Viewing by Mobile Phone
Most 3GPP cell phone supports media streaming with MPEG4 video and GSM-AMR
audio. Due to the limitation of the bandwidth for 3GPP, only 176x144 video solution will
be supported for cell phone viewing. Select the “Configure for mobile viewing” option
will change the range of other related video settings.
User's Manual - 17
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
For Best Real-time Video Images
To achieve good real-time visual effect, the network bandwidth should be large enough
to allow a transmission rate of greater than 20 image frames per second. If the
broadband network is over 1 Mbps, set the “Fix bit rate” to 1000Kbps or 1200Kbps, and
set “Fix quality” at the highest quality. The maximum frame rate is 30. If your network
bandwidth is more than 512Kbps, you can fix the bit rate according to your bandwidth
and set the maximum frame rate to 30 fps. If the images vary dramatically in your
environment, you may want to slow the maximum frame rate down to 20 fps in order
to lower the rate of data transmission. This allows for better video quality and the
human eyes cannot readily detect the differences between those of 20, 25, or 30
frames per second. If your network bandwidth is below 512 Kbps, set the “Fix bit rate”
according to your bandwidth and try to get the best performance by fine-tuning with
the “Maximum frame rate”. In a slow network, greater frame rate results in blur images.
Another work-around is to choose “160x120” in the “Size” option for better images.
Video quality performance will vary somewhat due to the number of users viewing on
the network; even when the parameters have initially been finely tuned.
Performance
will also suffer due to poor connectivity because of the network’s burst constraint.
Only Quality Images Will Do
To have the best video quality, you should set “Fix quality” at “Detailed” or “Excellent”
and adjust the “Maximum frame rate” to match your network’s bandwidth. If your
network is slow and you receive “broken” pictures, go to the TCP protocol in
“Connection type” and choose a more appropriate mode of transmission. The images
may suffer a time delay due to a slower connection.
The delay will also increase with
added number of users.
Somewhere Between Real-time and Clear Images
If you have a broadband network, set “Fix quality” at ”Normal” or better, rather than
setting “Fix bit rate”. You can also fix the bandwidth according to your actual network
speed and adjust the frame rate.
15 fps.
Start from 30 fps down for best results but not below
If the image qualities are not improved, select a lower bandwidth setting.

frequency setting to eliminate uncomfortable flash image when the light source is only
fluorescent light.
There are three dependent parameters provided for video performance adjustment.
“key frame interval”
“Max frame rate” This limits the maximal refresh frame rate, which can be combined
with the “Video quality” to optimize bandwidth utilization and video quality. Choose
“Constant bit rate” If the user wants to fix the bandwidth utilization regardless of the
video quality, choose “Fixed quality” and select the desired bandwidth. The video
quality may be poor due to the sending of maximal frame rate within the limited
bandwidth when images are moving rapidly. Consequently, to ensure detailed video
quality (quantization rate) regardless of the network, it will utilize more bandwidth to
send the maximal frames when images change drastically.
“Maximum Exposure Time” Select a proper maximum exposure time according to
the light source of the surroundings. The exposure time are selectable at the following
duration: 1/120 second, 1/60 second, 1/30 second, and 1/15 second. Shorter
exposure time would accept less light amount.

Application settings
The server provides two kinds of applications, snapshot and videoclip. There are two
independent snapshot items to set, and they are named as Snapshot #1 and Snapshot
#2. The status, schedule, trigger condition, and action of three applications are
summaried in the application page. The user can click on Snapshot #1, Snapshot #2 or
Video Clip to enter the detail setting page.
Snapshot
“Enable snapshot” Enable/Disable snapshot application.
Weekly schedule
“Sun” ~ “Sat” Select the days of the week to perform the application.
Select “Always” or input the time interval.
Snapshot file name prefix
The prefix name will be added on the file name of the snapshot images.
Send out the snapshot while motion detection
There are three windows for motion detection each can be assigned a name. Select the
windows which need to be monitored. If motion detection has not been set up,
“undefined” will be shown instead of the window title. If this happens, clicking on
“Motion detection” and a note will show to direct the User to the configuration page for
motion detection.

“Delay second(s) before detecting next motion” Set the time delay before
restarting to check on the triggering condition when the current condition is triggered.
Sequential operation
“Snapshot interval (seconds)” Network Camera will send snapshots at the specified
intervals to the external server using the method selected below. Remember: This
operation is still subject to the conditions set in the weekly schedule.
Method for sending snapshot
“Email” This selects the uploading method following the intervals set above. The
snapshot named “prefix-yyyymmdd-hhmmss.jpg” will be attached in the email.
“FTP” The snapshots will be uploaded to the external FTP server with the file name
defined in the next option. This can also be used to refresh the captured images stored
in the external web server to build creative homepages.
“FTP put snapshots with date and time suffix” This option sets up the snapshot
capture date and time, which can be used to easily differentiate the snapshot file
names in the sequential operation. For instance, “prefix-20030102-030405.jpg”
means the JPEG image was captured in the year 2003, January the 2nd, at 3 o’clock, 4
minute, and 5 second. If this suffix is omitted, the file named “video.jpg” on the
external FTP server will be refreshed at the specified interval.
