Chapter 1 Overview
1.1 System Requirement
System requirement of web browser accessing is as follows:
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP1 and above version / Vista / Win7 /
Server 2003 / Server 2008 32bits
CPU: Intel Pentium IV 3.0 GHz or higher
RAM: 1G or higher
Display: 1024×768 resolution or higher
Web Browser: Internet Explorer 8.0 and above version, Apple Safari 5.02 and above
version, Mozilla Firefox 5 and above version and Google Chrome 18 and above
versions.
1.2 Functions
The functions vary depending on the models of speed dome.

Limit Stops
The dome can be programmed to move within the limit stops (left/right, up/down).

Scan Modes
The dome provides 5 scan modes: auto scan, tilt scan, frame scan, random scan and
panorama scan.
Preset Freezing
This feature freezes the scene on the monitor when the dome is moving to a preset.
This allows for smooth transition from one preset scene to another. It also
guarantees that masked area will not be revealed when the dome is moving to a
preset.

Presets
A preset is a predefined image position. When the preset is called, the dome will
automatically move to the defined position. The presets can be added, modified,
deleted and called.

Label Display
The on-screen label of the preset title, azimuth/elevation, zoom, time and dome
name can be displayed on the monitor. The displays of time and speed dome name
can be programmed.

Auto Flips
In manual tracking mode, when a target object goes directly beneath the dome, the
video will automatically flips 180 degrees in horizontal direction to maintain
continuity of tracking. This function can also be realized by auto mirror image

User Manual of Network Speed Dome

depending on different camera models.

Privacy Mask
This function allows you to block or mask certain area of a scene, for preventing the
personal privacy from recording or live viewing. A masked area will move with pan
and tilt functions and automatically adjust in size as the lens zooms telephoto and
wide.
3D Positioning
In the client software, use the left key of mouse to click on the desired position in the
video image and drag a rectangle area in the lower right direction, then the dome
system will move the position to the center and allow the rectangle area to zoom in.
Use the left key of mouse to drag a rectangle area in the upper left direction to move
the position to the center and allow the rectangle area to zoom out.

Proportional Pan/Tilt
Proportional pan/tilt automatically reduces or increases the pan and tilt speeds
according to the amount of zoom. At telephoto zoom settings, the pan and tilt
speeds will be slower than at wide zoom settings. This keeps the image from moving
too fast on the live view image when there is a large amount of zoom.

Auto Focus
The auto focus enables the camera to focus automatically to maintain clear video
images.

Day/Night Auto Switch
The speed domes deliver color images during the day. And as light diminishes at night,
the speed domes switch to night mode and deliver black and white images with high
quality.

Slow Shutter
In slow shutter mode, the shutter speed will automatically slow down in low
illumination conditions to maintain clear video images by extending the exposure
time. The feature can be enabled or disabled.

Backlight Compensation (BLC)
If you focus on an object against strong backlight, the object will be too dark to be
seen clearly. The BLC (Backlight Compensation) function can compensate light to the
object in the front to make it clear, but this causes the over-exposure of the
background where the light is strong.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)
The wide dynamic range (WDR) function helps the camera provide clear images even
under back light circumstances. When there are both very bright and very dark areas
simultaneously in the field of view, WDR balances the brightness level of the whole
image and provide clear images with details.

This feature varies depending on speed dome models.

White Balance (WB)
White balance can remove the unrealistic color casts. White balance is the white
rendition function of the camera to adjust the color temperature according to the
User Manual of Network Speed Dome
10
environment automatically.

Patrol
A patrol is a memorized series of pre-defined preset function. The scanning speed
between two presets and the dwell time at the preset are programmable.
Pattern
A pattern is a memorized series of pan, tilt, zoom, and preset functions. By default
the focus and iris are in auto status during the pattern is being memorized.

Power Off Memory
The dome supports the power off memory capability with the predefined resume
time. It allows the dome to resume its previous position after power is restored.

Time Task
A time task is a preconfigured action that can be performed automatically at a
specific date and time. The programmable actions include: auto scan, random scan,
patrol 1-8 ,pattern 1-4, preset 1-8,frame scan, panorama scan, tilt scan, day, night,
reboot, PT adjust, Aux Output, etc.

Park Action
This feature allows the dome to start a predefined action automatically after a period
of inactivity.

User Management
The dome allows you to edit users with different levels of permission, in the admin
login status. Multiple users are allowed to access and control the same network
speed dome via network simultaneously.

3D Digital Noise Reduction
Comparing with the general 2D digital noise reduction, the 3D digital noise reduction
function processes the noise between two frames besides processing the noise in
one frame. The noise will be much less and the video will be clearer.

Dual-VCA
Combine the detected VCA information into the video stream, which can be used for
the second-time analysis on the back-end device.

