Preface
Thank you for using our IP camera products. This series of products
are all-in-one IP cameras designed for network video surveillance,
including box IP camera, infrared box IP camera, dome IP camera,
speed dome IP camera, etc. The products adopt high performance
and powerful single SOC chip media processor to integrate audio
and video capture, compression and transmission. Standard H.264
Baseline and Main Profile coding algorithm ensures clearer and
smoother video transmission effect. Built-in Web Server allows
users to easily perform real-time monitoring and remote control over
front-end cameras via IE browser.
This series of IP cameras is suitable for small and medium-sized
enterprises,families, and other environments that require remote
network video transmission and monitoring. It is easy to install and
operate.

factory settings (except for the physical network address).
2、I P camera audio/video function fails after abnormalities or
abnormal power cut occur during upgrade, core edition is
V4.0.0.0 (Backup file)
Solution: Connect the power cord and network cable of IP camera,
press on RESET button and release it after 10 seconds, system
will run the back-up programme automatically. After enter into the
back-up programme, upgrade system. After upgrade completes,
the IP camera will work normally. The back-up program me offers
only upgrade and parameter setup functions, audio and video
functions are not available.
3、N o video image displayed in IE browser
Possible reason: ActiveX not installed
Solution: ActiveX must be installed when visiting IP camera for the
first time via Internet Explore.
How to install: Visit IP camera, click [file], file download dialog will
pop up, select [Run] or [Save] to download. Please reference the
ActiveX install part to install the ActiveX.
4、F ail to visit IP camera via IE after upgrade
Solution: Delete the caching of Browser.
Steps: Open IE—click “Tools”—select “Internet Options”—click
“delete files” button in “Internet temporary files”, select “delete all
offline contents”, then click “OK” and re-log in IP camera.
5、T he images do not smoothly
Possible reason 1: The frame rate of IP camera is too low.
Solution: Increase the video frame rate
Possible reason 2: Too many users are viewing the images.
Solution: Block some clients or reduce the video frame rate.
Possible reason 3: The bandwidth is low.
Solution: Reduce video frame rate or video compression bitrate.
6、F ail to visit IP camera via IE browser
Possible Reason 1: Network is disconnected.
27
5 Set System Parameters
Solution: Connect your PC to network, checking whether it works
properly or not. Check whether there is cable failure or network
failure caused by PC virus, until PCs can be connected with the
command of Ping.
Possible reason 2: IP Address has been occupied by other devices
Solution: Stop the connection between IP camera and Network,
hook up IP camera to PC separately, reset IP address according to
the proper operations recommended.
Possible reason 3: IP addresses are in different subnets.
Solution: Check IP address, subnet masking address of the DVS
and the settings of Gateway.
Possible reason 4: Physical address of network conflict with IP
camera
Solution: modify the physical address of IP camera.
Possible Reason 5: Web port has been modified
Solution: Contact Network Administrator to obtain related
information. Possible Reason 6: Unknown
Solution: Press RESET to restore default settings then connect it
again, the default IP address is 192.168.1.100, subnet mask is
255.255.255.0
7、T here is no sound while monitoring
Possible Reason: No audio input connection
Solution: Check audio connection of the host
Possible Reason 2: the audio option of IP camera is off
Solution: Check audio parameter settings to see if you have
opened the audio.
8、P ro-search software cannot find device
Possible reason: Pro-search software adopts multicast protocol
to perform searching. But the firewall forbids multicast data packet.
Solution: disable the firewall.
9、I mage processing does not work properly
Possible Reason 1: system issue, DirectX function is disabled,
28
which will cause slow display of images and abnormal color.
Possible Reason 2: hardware issue, graphics card does not
support image acceleration and hardware zooming functions.(For
hardware issue, the only solution is to replace graphics card)
Solution: install DirectX image drive, then Start→Run→input
“DXDIAG” as follows:
Notice:Enable DirectDraw speedup, Direct3D speedup,
AGP veins speedup in DirectX function. If they can not be enabled,
that means DirectX installation fails or hardware not supportive.
