1. PRODUCT FEATURES
1.1 Product Instructions
The Mega-Pix Box IP camera provides freshly designed simultaneous video codec
streams of MJPEG and MPEG4. This IP camera not only supports the 25fps frame rate, as
well as motion detection and a built-in microphone, but also the day and night, pre- and
post-alarm, and PoE functions. The images from this device are not interlaced. The
camera sensor used is the SONY 1.3M CMOS Sensor (IMX035).
In addition this IP camera hosts the powerful multi-profile function which enables the
simultaneous use of different rates of resolution while allowing two video codecs to
connect with computers at the same time. Apart from this, the camera brings you
user-friendly PnP operations, and captures alarm and scheduled recordings by using an
SD card. Besides, when the IP camera is connected with the auto iris lens, the camera
makes available the auto iris mode which can be easily turned on or off with the help of the
switch on the camera's side panel. In this mode the ALC function can also be activated.
Moreover, the light sensor on the camera's front panel can register the quality of light in the
camera’s environment, and control the iris shuttle to provide better information concerning
the light.
This new generation Mega-Pix Box IP camera offers a more progressive digitized image
technology and a user-friendly controlled interface in the IE Browser to thoroughly update
your surveillance capabilities.

4.2 Configure Your IP Camera Network Settings
Upon connecting with the network hardware, you need to activate the network function and
configure the proper network settings of the IP camera.
4.2.1 Enable DHCP Function
This function can only work if the LAN, which the unit is connected to, has a DHCP server. If the
DHCP server is working, please move the dip switch points up to 3 on the flank panel; now the IP
camera will obtain an IP address automatically from the DHCP server. In this instance, please
skip section 4.2.2 (Set IP address) and follow section 4.3 (TCP/IP Communication Software).
4.2.2 Set IP Address
You need to set an IP address for the unit if the LAN unit isn’t connected to a DHCP server.
Otherwise, please follow the instructions given below:
Set the IP, MASK and GATEWAY. The following is a sample setting.
IP:
192.168.1.X
MASK:
255.255.255.0
GATEWAY:
0.0.0.0
15
NOTE: When only one unit of the IP camera is connected to a computer or LAN, you can
freely assign an IP address for the IP camera. For example, there is a range of IP
camera IP addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.255. You can pick one for use
from the range of the IP. It’s not necessary to set MASK and GATEWAY; leave the
settings as default.
When an IP camera is connected to a WAN, you must acquire a unique,
permanent IP address and correctly configure the MASK and GATEWAY settings
according to your network architecture. If you have any questions regarding
those settings, please consult a qualified MIS professional or your ISP.
NOTE: When connecting to a network, each connected IP camera must be assigned a
unique IP, which must be in the same class type as your network address. IP
addresses are written as four sets of numbers separated by periods; for example,
192.168.1.1 Therefore, if the connected network is identified as Class C, for
example, the first three sets of numbers of the IP camera IP address must be the
same as in the network address. If the connected network is identified as Class B,
the first two sets of numbers of the IP camera IP address must be the same as in
the network address. If you have any questions regarding these settings, please
consult a qualified MIS professional or your ISP.

53
Data Bits:
Parity Bit:
Stop Bit:
Either 7 or 8. It is a measurement of the actual data bits in a
transmission. By default, the value is 8.
Choose from No, Even, and Odd. This is a simple form of error checking
used in serial communication and you may use no parity. For even and
odd parities, the serial port sets the parity bit (the last bit after the data
bits) to a value to ensure that the transmission has an even or odd
number of logic-high bits.
For example, if the data is 011, for even parity, the parity bit is 0 to keep
the number of logic-high bits even. If the parity is odd, the parity bit is 1,
resulting in 3 logic-high bits.
Either 1 or 2. It is used to signal the end of communication for a single
packet. The more bits used for stop bits, the greater the lenience in
synchronizing the different clocks but the slower the data transmission
rate. In default mode, the value is 1.

APPENDIX 1. –How to run IP Camera UPnP
®
The most troublesome issue when you setup an IP Camera is that you have no idea what the IP
®
address of this device is. Now IP Camera supports the UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocol
®
which makes it easier for you to examine it; however, it is a pity that Microsoft Windows XP
doesn’t start this service by default. Therefore, the following procedures will help you to turn it on
®
and discover your IP Camera step by step as shown in Figure1 below.
Figure 1 UPnP Setup Flow Chart
1. Check the IP class of your PC
®
In most case Microsoft Windows XP will assign an IP address, 169.254.*.*, automatically with a
subnet mask, 255.255.0.0, if the DHCP server is absent, while the default IP address of an IP
®
Camera is 192.168.1.168 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. There won’t be any
communication due to different IP class domains, and you have to modify the relative settings or
the UPnP protocol won’t work; however, checking your own IP address is necessary. Here are
the procedures to check and modify them.
Step 1: From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. See Figure 2.
102
Figure 2
Step 2: When Control Panel appears, double-click the Network Connections icon. The
Network Connections dialog box appears. See Figure 3.
Figure 3
Step 3: Click the Protocols tab in the Network Connections dialog box. See Figure 4.
Figure 4
Step 4: When the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box shows up, choose Internet
Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. See Figure 5.
103
Figure 5
Step 5: In the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, choose Use the following IP
Address to indicate that you do not wish to use DHCP, and assign IP Address
192.168.1.200 with Subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
Click OK when you finish it. See Figure 6.
Figure 6
Step 6: Choose Close to finish the modification. See Figure 7.
Figure7
104
2. Install UPnP Packets
®
As described before, Microsoft Windows XP doesn’t start the UPnP service by default; however,
we have to install some packets before we initialize it. The following steps will help you to install
them.
Step1: In the Start menu, point to Set Program Access and Default, and then click it. See
Figure 8
Figure 8
Step 2: When the Add or Remove Programs dialog box appears, click the Add/Remove
Windows Components button. See Figure 9.
Figure 9
Step 3: Check the Network Services in the Windows Component Wizard dialog box, and
then click Details…. See Figure10.
105
Figure 10
Step 4: Check UPnP User Interface, and choose OK. See Figure 11.
Figure 11
Step 5: When the original Network Component Wizard dialog box returns, click Next. See
Figure12.
Figure 12
106
Step 6: After about one minute the UPnP installation will be done, and choose Finish to close it.
See Figure13.
Figure 13
3. Turn on Services
After installation, we should turn on the relative services to start the UPnP protocol. The following
procedures will teach you how to do it.
Step 1: In the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. See Figure14.
Figure 14
Step 2: When Control Panel appears, double-click the Administrative Tools icon. The
Administrative Tools dialog box appears. See Figure15.
107
Figure15
Step 3: Click the Services icon in the Administrative Tools dialog box. See Figure16.
Figure16
Step 4: When the Services dialog box shows up, double click the SSDP Discovery Service
icon. See Figure17.
108
Figure17
Step 5: Choose Automatic in the Startup type, and click OK to start it. See Figure18.
Figure18
Step 6: When the Services dialog box appears again, double click the Universal Plug and Play
Device Host icon. See Figure19.
109
Figure19
Step 7: Choose Automatic in the Startup type, press the Start button, and click OK to start it.
See Figure20.
Figure20
Step 8: Restart your system.
110
®
4. Scan IP Cameras through My Network Place
After you complete the installation and starting services, the UPnP protocol will take effect. You can
®
scan all IP Cameras in My Network Place, as in Figure21 and Figure22 below.
Figure21
Figure22
Just double click the UPnP IP Camera icon, and the video live stream will pop up automatically
®
without assigning any IP address in Microsoft Internet Explorer .
111
APPENDIX 2. –The ARP function
Setting the IP Address
The Ethernet interface on the IP camera has a default IP address (192.168.1.168) that most likely
needs to be changed to make it work on your local network. You need to acquire a unique IP
address (ask your network administrator). For the initial setting of the IP address, the IP camera
needs to be connected to the same network segment as your client, and the IP address can then be
configured by using a combination of ARP and ping command.
Use any of the following ways to set the IP address within thirty seconds after booting the IP camera
(re-cycle the power). Setting IP using the method below can only be done on the Ethernet interface.
ARP and ping from Windows or MS-DOS:
You can open the PC's MS-DOS windows from the WINDOWS 98 operation system, or open the
PC's Command Prompt windows from either the WINDOWS 2000 or the WINDOWS XP operation
system.
1.
Start a DOS prompt window.
2.
Type in the following 30 seconds after the booting:
arp -s <IP address> <Ethernet address>
[or arp -s <IP address> < MAC address>]
ping <IP address>
Example:
arp -s 192.168.1.100 00-0C-0C-00-00-01
ping 192.168.1.100
The IP address now is: 192.168.1.100.
112
ARP and ping from UNIX or GNU/Linux:
1.
Start a shell
2.
Type in the following as superuser (root):
arp -s <IP address> <Ethernet address>
[or arp -s <IP address> < MAC address>]
ping <IP address>
Example:
arp -s 192.168.1.100 00-0C-0C-00-00-01
ping 192.168.1.100
The device responds to the ping in the examples above if the new address was configured. Note,
this method will set the IP address permanently.
NOTE: The default account and password after the reset are admin and 9999, respectively.
113
APPENDIX 3. –Register as a DDNS member

APPENDIX 6. –FAQ
1. How do I disable the DHCP function and use a static IP instead?
A:Turn up the “DIP SWITCH” from “3” to “4” and change the relative network settings, the IP
Address, NetMask and Gateway on the image web page.
2. Can the SD card be removed during recording?
A:No, it cannot be removed until the recording comes to a single point. The POWER LED
flashing light signals the SD card is operating. The green light indicates the unit is activating. The
red light warns the SD card cannot be removed. If the SD card is withdrawn in this mode, the
card will break.
3. I’ve set the function of “Motion Detection” but it doesn’t seem to work.
A:Check if “Motion range” and “Sensitivity” have been set before activating the function.

A:Please visit “http://www.morgan-multimedia.com/” to download “Morgan M-JPEG codec” and
install it, and then check the selection of the “IJP Core”.
