MJPEG
H.264
MJPEG: Each video frame is individually compressed as single jpeg image
with full-scale contents itself and can be retouched freely with ease.
However, due to completeness of each frame, it brings about larger file size
and thus easily tends to lose frames under limited network bandwidth.
H.264: The latest best-renowned video compression format, it adopts
intelligent technology to record variation in each frame rather than record
each full frame. As a result, less network bandwidth it requires and file size is
prone to be smaller compared with MJPEG.
DSCP
0 ~ 63
To classify and manage network traffic and provide quality of service (QoS)
on modern IP networks, Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) is a
computer networking architecture that specifies a resource allocation to
each device on a priority-based pattern for ideal bandwidth management.
The bigger value, the higher priority it will be.
Profile

Baseline
There’re 3 kinds of profiles for H.264 codec and the compression ratio with
protocol for each type are different. Users may choose a proper one for
desired applications or contact IT personnel for more information.

PAL:
H.264/MJPEG single stream: 2048×1536 to [email protected]
Choose one of the Rate Control modes depending on different situations.
Higher bit rate value will result in better quality with bigger file size and
thus consume more network bandwidth, while lower bit rate value, instead,
has slighter loading on network bandwidth due to smaller file size but with
inferior image quality.
Select the GOP length number from NTSC: 1 to 60 / PAL: 1 to 50. Less number
means the distance between 2 I-frames is smaller, which needs more
network bandwidth with better image. By contrast, larger number consumes
less bandwidth but is hard to be recovered. The available length number
options of GOP will vary based on frame rate settings.
M-JPEG Quality
Level
Low/Mid/High
While “Low” produces the highest image quality, it increases the file size; on
the other hand, “High”, the lowest image quality, decreases the file size.

Exposure
This section mainly allows user to control the settings pertaining to exposure mode and day night modes.
Figure 4 - 5: Exposure
Basic Settings
●● Exposure Mode
There are 4 modes to select from as follows:
• Auto: with certain pre-settings, the camera automatically determines the correct exposure for pictures without user input
settings for further exposure before taking videos.
•
Flickerless: this mode allows camera to override the shutter speed, which will help avoid from the interference of fluorescent
lights in some environments.
•
Shutter Priority: it enables user to select a specific shutter speed for adjustment of aperture to ensure a correct and proper
exposure.
•
Manual: a mode that allows user to manually control both gain value and shutter speed. It is recommended for an
experienced administrator to adopt this mode.
●● Max / Min Shutter Time
• Select the minimum and maximum shutter time individually for the “Auto” exposure mode only.
●● Fixed Iris Control:
• Full: the Iris will always leep fully open to maintain enough exposure.
●● EV
It is the exposure compensation option telling camera by setting value from -2 to 2 for scenes to be either darker or brighter.
(Unavailable when exposure mode is Manual)
22
●● BLC
Set an area for Backlight Compensation. Backlight Compensation is a function that achieves the brightness of a selected area to
optimal image level. This function is necessary when an auto iris lens tends to close quickly due to an intense light coming from
back of object in the area wished to view, resulting in the area is too dark and difficult to see. In this case, users may set the area
corresponding to the portion wished to see. The area size illustrations are roughly as follows. (Unavailable when exposure mode
is Manual)

Center 1/6
Upper 2/3
Lower 2/3
Left
Center 1/3
Right
Figure 4 - 6: BLC Settings Illustrations
●● HLC
High Light Compensation (HLC) is a function that suppresses intensified light sources in camera coverage so that image will
be free from disturbance of strong light and thus details like license plate under strong headlight can be recognized clearly.
(Unavailable when exposure mode is “Manual”)
●● Digital WDR
It is intended to provide clear images even under backlight circumstances where intensity of illumination can vary excessively,
namely where there are both very bright and very dark areas simultaneously in the field of view. WDR enables the capture and
display of both bright and dark areas in the same frame, in a way that there are clear details in both areas, i.e. bright areas are not
saturated, and dark areas are not too dark.
●● Shutter Speed
Users can adjust preferred shutter speed ranging from the fastest 1/10000 second to the slowest 1/7.5 (1/6.25) second. (Available
when exposure mode is “Shutter Priority” or “Manual”)
●● Gain
This option allows user to control the gain value ranging from the lowest 0 to the highest 48. Larger the value, more intensity of
lights come into the camera and vice versa. (Available when exposure mode is “Manual”)
Day Night Settings
Figure 4 - 7: Day Night Setting
23
●● Day Night Switch Control – Mode
Set Day Night mode from 3 options, Auto, Color and B/W. When Color mode is selected, the camera is forced to stay in
Color mode permanently. On the other hand, the camera keeps within black and white mode when B/W is selected. Auto
simply let the camera to, based on different intensity of lights, switch between 2 modes automatically.
●● Day Night Switch Control – Time
To set the delay (buffered) time for switching between day and night modes. Fast means camera instantly switch with
nearly no delay time between day/night mode. And Slow stands for camera has a longer delay buffered time prior to
switching between day/night modes. (Unavailable when exposure mode is Manual)
●● Day Night Switch Control – Sensitivity
It determines the sensitivity of the day/night mode switching mechanism. Larger the value (High) represents camera is
prone to auto switch from day to night or night to day mode for minor light intensity change. On the other hand, smaller
the value (Low) indicates camera is going to switch from day to night or night to day mode on the basis of major changes
of surrounding light intensity. (Unavailable when exposure mode is Auto or Manual)
●● IR Mode
Click “ON” to let camera enable IR LED permanently, and click “Auto” to let camera switch on or off IR LED based on light
intensity of different applications. Click “OFF” to simply turn off IR LED.
●● IR Optimizer
Click “ON” to let camera enable IR optimizer, by which the intensity of IR LED will be evenly adjusted based on the focused
object along with the distance so that the events like overexposure can be avoided efficiently and a better IR effect can
thus bring about. Note that “BLC” function will be disabled when IR Optimizer is activated.
White Balance
This section allows user to set the white balance values to meet ambient conditions for best color rendition.
Figure 4 - 8: White Balance Settings
●● Mode
• ATW: Auto Tracing White Balance continuously adjusts the camera color balance in accordance with any change in color
temperature simultaneously.
• Auto: it automatically controls color temperature ranging from 2500°K to 10000°K
• Manual: to manually set preferred gain values including the following:
»» R (Red) Gain: it allows users to adjust red color in the image ranging from 0 to 255.
»» B (Blue) Gain: it allows users to adjust blue color in the image ranging from 0 to 255.
»» One Push: click this button to make the camera adjust to the proper gain values depending on the ambient
environment rapidly.

Basic Setting
Figure 4 - 9: Basic Settings
●● Sharpness
Increasing the sharpness value will sharpen the edges and small feature of viewing images. If the edges appear too
smooth or blurred, increase the sharpness; otherwise, decrease the sharpness. Sharpness value can be set from 0 to 100.
The 100 offers the sharpest image.
●● 3D Noise Reduction
It is the process of removing noises from a signal and be set from 0-100 to decrease noise on the screen. The 100 offers the
highest effect of noise reduction.
●● Defog
When installed under extreme outdoor environments, camera may have inferior image coverage due to certain weather
factors, e.g., snow, frost. As a result, please select "On" to enable Defog function so that it can thaw the frost and fog from
camera for better image results.
●● Gamma Correction
Set gamma correction, which matters when you need to display an image accurately on different monitor screens,
between 1 and 0.45 for better rendition in varied screens.
●● Brightness

RTSP
RTSP is a standard protocol for connecting a client to establish and control streaming data over the web. If you want to allow
third-party devices or software to access video/audio streams from the IP camera over the network, you must configure the
RTSP ports. The major difference between Unicast and Multicast is the way how client and server communicate packets with
each other. Specifically, unicast transmits packets under 1 to 1 device method and multicast, on the other hand, transmits
via the way of 1 to multiple devices. Hence, unicast requires large network bandwidth and occupies more resources of server
but is more stable because of its simple structure; by contrast, multicast needs less bandwidth with resources and is more
practical for multiple devices broadcast on condition that all relevant peripheral devices like switch or router support the
multicast protocol. Please adopt proper method based on your network applications for better efficiency.
Figure 4 - 14: RTSP Settings
●● Basic Settings & Authentication
Enabling the authentication will improve the verifying mechanism and thus make the RTSP connection process more
secured and much safer. To enable it, simply enter the Login ID, Password and Port (554 by default) with selecting “ON” in
Authentication. Turning “ON” for Auto Connect will enable auto connection. Please note that it is not required to enable
authentication beforehand to proceed with RTSP.
●● URL
Input a preferred name for representing each RTSP Stream URL. Basically it refers to Unicast URL protocol which
transmitting data via one host to a single host, consuming more network bandwidth but with a direct and simple
transmission method. After define preferred URL name for each stream, you can, via 3rd party software, enter the address
like the following examples for RTSP URL streaming.
• rtsp://(camera IP address)/(URL stream 1)
• rtsp://(camera IP address)/(URL stream 2)
• rtsp://(camera IP address)/(URL stream 3)
For example: rtsp://192.168.1.30/URL stream1
●● Metadata
Turn Metadata ON to enable data about data, which means the data information will be allocated systematically, allowing
similar data together by certain criteria and also distinguishing dissimilar data organizationally to effectively transmitting
date information.
29
●● Multicast URL
Differing from URL, Multicast URL can transmit data from one host to a single host or to all hosts, thus consuming less
network bandwidth with more flexibility. However, it is required to make sure if the peripherals connected with the
camera are all compatible with Multicast in advance. The address for Multicast is roughly same with the previous URL.
Please refer to the samples below:
• rtsp://(camera IP address)/(Multicast URL stream 1)
• rtsp://(camera IP address)/(Multicast URL stream 2)
• rtsp://(camera IP address)/(Multicast URL stream 3)
For example: rtsp://192.168.1.30/Multicast URL stream1
●● Address Type
By selecting “Manual”, user can advance to the further Video and Meta settings below, while “Auto” simply keeps the
original settings by the camera
•
Video & Meta Address/Port
Complex in its transmitting procedure and layer structure, Multicast streaming requires more specific settings
containing Video Address/Port and Meta Address/Port, both of which, as the UI suggesting, have a certain IP address
range (224.0.1.1 – 239.255.255.254) for user to define individually.
