Getting to Know the PVC300 PTZ Internet
Camera
Overview
The PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera is equipped with a Sony progressive scan CCD
sensor and pan-tilt 2.6x optical zoom lens. It is a high-performance network
camera for indoor surveillance applications such as security for banks, retail
stores, or offices.
With progressive scan techniques, this network camera is an ideal choice to
provide clear, high-quality video, and capture ultra-smooth images of fast-moving
objects without any pixilated edges.
Built into the camera is a 2.6x motorized zoom module, which provides greater
depth of field when viewing near or distant objects. With a 350-degree horizontal
and 125-degree vertical range of capture, it effectively gives users a wide-area
view.
A Power over Ethernet connection helps reduce cabling problems and eases the
installation procedure. The PVC300 also comes with a 16-channel video
monitoring system software, which helps users to set up a powerful surveillance
system.
The PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera is not only a high-performance web-ready
camera but also can be part of a flexible surveillance system.
The PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera is a network device and its use should be
straightforward for those who have basic network knowledge. It is designed for
various applications such as video sharing, general security, and surveillance.

Accessing the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera
Configuring Port Forwarding Rules
Configuring Port Forwarding Rules
There are some additional configuration settings to make in order
For 2-way audio over the Internet to work on your PVC300 camera, you need to
configure additional settings, as shown in the example in the following diagram.
Cameras accessed over the Internet that require 2-way audio must use a unique
RTSP port. Routers with Port Address Translation should map the same external
port as used on the inside LAN network.
In the above example, PVC300 #2 external <wan-ip>:8554 maps to internal
<lan-ip>:8554. Consult your network administrator for alternative port
suggestions. Port# 8554 is designated as an alternate RTSP port by the Internet
Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
NOTE: 2-way audio is not supported in HTTP
mode under Client Settings.

Configuring Client Settings
UDP Unicast—Allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However,
network packets may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be
obscured. 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 PVC300 PTZ
Internet Camera allows up to ten simultaneous accesses.
UDP Multicast—Allows multicast-enabled routers to forward network packets to
all clients requesting streaming media. This helps to reduce the network
transmission load of the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera while serving multiple
clients at the same time.
NOTE To use this feature, you must configure the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera to
enable multicast streaming.
TCP—Guarantees the complete delivery of streaming data and thus provides
better video quality. Due to the narrower bandwidth, you may notice a delay in the
real-time video when you choose TCP instead of UDP.
HTTP—Allows the same quality as TCP protocol. In some network environments,
you do not need to open a specific port for streaming when you choose HTTP. If
you are inside a firewall, use this protocol to allow the streaming data to come
through.
STEP 4
Configure the MPEG-4 saving options.
In the MP4 Saving Options section of the Client Settings screen, you can specify
the storage destination and file name.
Folder—Specifies where to store the recorded video files.
File Name Prefix—Specifies the text that precedes the video file name.
Add date and time suffix to the file name—Adds date and time to the file name
suffix. The format is YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS.
For example, consider the following filename:
CLIP_200801008_180853
The filename prefix is CLIP_ and the date and time suffix is 200801008_180853.

Configuring Advanced Camera Settings
This section explains how to configure the advanced settings for the PVC300 PTZ
Internet Camera. It is composed of the following five areas; HTTP, FTP, HTTPS, SIP,
and RTP/RTSP.
HTTP
Authentication—Depending on your network security requirements, the PVC300
PTZ Internet Camera provides two types of security settings for a HTTP
transaction: basic and digest. If basic authentication is selected, the password is
sent in plain text format; there can be potential risks of being intercepted. If digest
authentication is selected, user credentials are encrypted in 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 another port
number between 1024 and 65535. If the ports are incorrectly assigned, the
following warning messages are displayed:
To access the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera within a LAN, both the HTTP port and
secondary HTTP port can be used to access the camera. For example, when the
HTTP port is set to 80 and the secondary HTTP port is set to 8080, refer to the
following example for the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera’s IP address.
In a LAN—http://192.168.4.160 or http://192.168.4.160:8080
Access name for stream 1 / Access name for stream 2: The access name is used
to differentiate the streaming source. This is useful when you need to use Mozilla
Firefox or Netscape to access the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera. If the video mode
is set to JPEG, you will receive continuous JPEG pictures.
This technology, known as “server push”, allows the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera
to feed live pictures to Mozilla Firefox and Netscape. Use the following format:
http://<ip address>/cgi-bin/viewer/<access name such as
video.jpg>
The following instructions are for when you set the access name for stream 1 to

Video Quality Settings For Stream 1/2—Set two streams for the PVC300 PTZ
Internet Camera for different viewing devices. For example, set the PVC300 PTZ
Internet Camera to a smaller frame size and a lower bit rate for viewing on mobile
phones. Or, set the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera to a larger video size and a
higher bit rate for viewing on web browsers.
•
Mode
The PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera offers two choices of video compression
standards for real-time viewing: MPEG-4 and JPEG. If MPEG-4 is selected, it
is streamed in RTP encapsulation over UDP. There are four dependent
parameters provided in MPEG-4 mode for video performance adjustment.
•
Resolution
The video resolutions are selectable at the following settings: 640x480,
320x240, and 176x144. Note that a larger frame resolution takes up more
bandwidth.
•
Video quality
A complex scene generally produces 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 performances. The bit rates are
selectable at the following rates: 20Kbps, 30Kbps, 40Kbps, 50Kbps,
64Kbps, 128Kbps, 256Kbps, 512Kbps, 768Kbps, 1Mbps, 2Mbps, 3Mbps
and 4Mbps.
If Fixed quality is selected, all frames are transmitted with the same quality
and bandwidth utilization is unpredictable. The video quality is selectable:
Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed and Excellent.
Cisco Small Business Administration Guide for the Model PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera with Audio and PoE

If JPEG mode is selected, the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera continuously
sends JPEG images to the clients, producing dynamic effects similar to
movies. Every single JPEG image transmitted guarantees the same image
quality, which in turn comes at the expense of variable bandwidth usage.
And because the media contents are a combination of JPEG images, no
audio data is transmitted to the clients.
•
Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximal refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate
higher for a smoother video quality.
If the power line frequency is set to 50Hz, the frame rates are selectable at
the following rates: 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 the following rates: 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps,
20fps, 25fps and 30fps.

How Motion Detection Works
There are two parameters for setting the motion detection: Sensitivity and
Percentage. Imagine frame A and frame B are two sequential images. Pixel
differences between the two frames are detected and highlighted in gray, 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 sense a slight movement while smaller
sensitivity settings tend to neglect it.
Percentage is a value that expresses the proportion of “alerted pixels” to all pixels
in the motion detection window.
For applications that require higher security management, set higher sensitivity
settings and smaller percentage values.

Troubleshooting
This appendix provides solutions to problems that may occur during the
installation and operation of the Internet Camera. Read the description below to
solve your problems. If you can't find an answer here, check the Cisco Small
Business website at www.cisco.com/go/smallbusiness.
Which browsers can I use to access video supplied by the camera?
Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) is the official supported browser for the Cisco
PVC300 IP camera.
I can't connect to the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera with my Web Browser to
configure it.
It is possible that your computer's IP address is not compatible with the IP address
of the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera. Use the Cisco Small Business Video
Monitoring System Administration Guide to configure the PVC300 PTZ Internet
Camera with a valid IP address.
When I try to connect to the PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera, I get prompted for a
user name and password.
You should be prompted for a user name and password when you first connect to
the camera. Enter the Administrator ID and Password set on the User screen. The
Username/Password prompt indicates that the Administrator has restricted
access to specified users. Ask the Administrator for your Username and
Password. If this has not been set, it should still be the default of admin/admin.
The motion detection feature doesn't send me any e-mails.
It may be that the SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) server used by the
camera to send the e-mail will not accept mail. (This is to prevent Spam being sent
from the server.). Try using a different SMTP server, or contact your ISP to see if
SMTP access is being blocked.
Make sure that you are using the ISP DNS server address and not the router’s IP
Address (192.168.1.1) for DNS.
Cisco Small Business Administration Guide for the Model PVC300 PTZ Internet Camera with Audio and PoE
63
A
Troubleshooting
Using the motion detection feature, I receive e-mails that don't show any moving
objects.
The motion detection feature doesn't actually detect motion. It compares frames to
see if they are different. Major differences between frames are assumed to be
caused by moving objects.
But the motion detector can also be triggered by sudden changes in the level of
available light or movement of the camera itself.
Try to avoid these situations. The motion detection feature works best in locations
where there is good steady illumination, and the camera is mounted securely. This
feature can NOT be used if the camera is outdoors.
The video image is blurry.
Try adjusting the Image Quality setting on the Image screen. Video created will the
lower settings will contain less detail; this is the trade-off for using less bandwidth.
Also try to zoom in and out because the camera automatically adjusts focus when
zooming.
How do I set up UPnP so my cameras broadcast their availability to my
network?
UPnP networking technology provides automatic IP configuration and dynamic
discovery of devices added to a network. Services and capabilities offered by
networked devices, such as printing and file sharing, are available among each
other without bothersome network configuration. In the case of Network Cameras,
you will see Network Camera shortcuts at My Network Places.
In a Windows environment, you must log on to the computer as a system
administrator to install the UPnP components. If using Windows Vista, turn off UAC
(User Access Control) before following this procedure.
Follow these steps to enable UPnP user interface on your computer:
STEP 1
Go to Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
STEP 2
In the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, click Add/Remove Windows
Components.
NOTE If the default ports are already used by other device connecting to the same router,
the Network Camera will select other ports for the Network Camera.

Windows Help
Almost all products require Microsoft Windows. Windows is the most used
operating system in the world and comes with many features that help make
networking easier. These features can be accessed through Windows Help and
are described in this appendix.
TCP/IP
Before a computer can communicate with an access point or router, TCP/IP must
be enabled. TCP/IP is a set of instructions, or protocol, all PCs follow to
communicate over a network. Your PCs will not be able to use networking without
having TCP/IP enabled. Windows Help provides complete instructions on enabling
TCP/IP.
Shared Resources
If you wish to share printers, folders, or files over your network, Windows Help
provides complete instructions on using shared resources.
Network Neighborhood/My Network Places
Other PCs on your network appear under Network Neighborhood or My Network
Places (depending upon the version of Windows you’re running). Windows Help
provides complete instructions on adding PCs to your network.
