1. Introduction
With the experience accumulated from the IP surveillance product design, PLANET proudly
introduce our Dual Mode CMOS Internet Camera, the ICA-151, to you. The ICA-151 is an
all-functioned network camera that could express high quality video and audio to any corner
in the world.
Inside ICA-151, there is a build-in microprocessor which is dedicated for video and audio
processing. With this microprocessor, the ICA-151 could deliver MPEG-4 and M-JPEG
video streaming at the same time, manipulate the audio captured by its microphone or even
play the sound sent out by the remote administrator. Furthermore, the ICA-151 also
supports the cell phone user. The 3GPP feature lets the administrator watch the video just
by clicking on a few buttons on his cell phone.
ICA-151 could work with Cam Viewer, a multi-camera video surveillance application that
enables you to set up a comprehensive and effective surveillance system quickly and easily.
The Cam Viewer works with PLANET network cameras and video server to provide video
monitoring, recording and event management functions.
The thin, light, fancy and fashion style makes the ICA-151 suit for many occasions. You
could use it for home security purpose or as a professional surveillance camera. You might
just put it on your desktop or mount it on the ceiling of your office.

Appendix A --- Streaming Video / Audio Solution
Streaming video is a sequence of "moving images" that are sent in compressed form over
the Internet and displayed by the viewer as they arrive. With streaming, a Web user does
not have to wait to download a large file before seeing the video or hearing the sound.
Instead, the media is sent in a continuous stream and is played as it arrives.
• To snapshot a JPEG image from the camera with specified resolution and quality:
http://<ip>/img/snapshot.cgi?[size=<value>][&quality=<value>]
Size = 1 (160*120)
2 (320*240)
3 (640*480)
Quality = 5 (Very low)
4 (Low)
3 (Normal)
2 (High)
1 (Very high)
• To stream M-JPEG video from the camera (M-JPEG mode only)
http://<ip>/img/mjpeg.htm
• To stream video through the RTP/RTSP protocol from camera (MPEG-4 mode only)
rtsp://<ip>/img/media.sav
Note:
Users need to specify the desired protocol in the players.
• To snapshot a JPEG image (160*120, very low quality) through a 3G mobile phone:
http://<ip>/img/mobile.cgi

Appendix C --- Bandwidth Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the ICA-151 depends on connection bandwidth
between client and server, video resolution, codec type, and quality setting of server. Here
is a guideline to help you roughly estimate the bandwidth requirements for your ICA-151.
The required bandwidth depends on content of video source. The slow motion video will
produce smaller bit rate generally and fast motion will produce higher bit rate vice versa.
Actual results generated by the ICA-151 may be varying.
Quality
640 x 480 (VGA)
320 x 240 (QVGA)
160 x 120 (QQVGA)
Very Good
4000 Kbps @ 30fps
1000 Kbps @ 30fps
800 Kbps @ 30fps
Good
3200 Kbps @ 30fps
800 Kbps @ 30fps
400 Kbps @ 30fps
Normal
1200 Kbps @ 30fps
300 Kbps @ 30fps
200 Kbps @ 30fps
Low
480 Kbps @ 30fps
120 Kbps @ 30fps
100 Kbps @ 30fps
Very Low
160 Kbps @ 30fps
40 Kbps @ 30fps
40 Kbps @ 30fps
Note:
Audio streaming also takes bandwidth around 5 kbps to 64kbps. Most xDSL/Cable modem upload
speeds may not even reach up to 128 kbps. Thus, you may not be able to receive any video while
streaming audio on a 128 kbps or lower connection. Even though the upload speed is more than
128kbps, for optimal video performance, disabling audio streaming will get better video
performance.
