 Basic Setting > Video / Image > Video Image > Resolution
Generally speaking, selection of resolution is dependent on the bandwidth of the network you are
using. This product offers different selections for video/audio settings. However, to ensure
undisrupted image transmission, you need a higher uploading bandwidth. It is recommended to
use CIF resolution for normal bandwidth.
The product offers 2 image resolutions (PAL/NTSC):
1. D1
(NTSC: 704x576 / PAL: 704x480)
2. CIF
(NTSC: 352x288 / PAL: 352x240)
NOTE:
ALS-7721 resolution is according to the video source, so the resolution can only support the D1.

Basic Setting > Video / Image > Video Image >Frame per Second (FPS):


Basic Setting > Video / Image > Video Image > Quality
There are two video quality modes:
Fixed rate mode is suitable for use in a network environment that the upload bandwidth is limited.
Please select the appropriate bit-rate according to your network environment. For example, if the
network (upload) bandwidth available for the network camera is 500kbps, 500kbps multiplied 0.8
equals 400kbps (considering 20% overhead).This means that the largest fixed bit-rate should be
set less than 400kbps; setting the bit-rate more than that might cause frame drops. Fixed quality
mode is suitable for use if you want a constant video quality.
If you want the best quality, Please choose the best option. The system will adjust the frame rate to
fit the bandwidth available.
There are 8 options to choose in fixed bit-rate drop-list.


Basic Setting > Video / Image > Video Image > GOP
GOP provides users with the function to set the pages of the I Frame and P Frame to be
transmitted in the H264 mode. Basically, the I Frame page contains the entire picture and needs
higher bandwidth, while the P Frame page only contains the parts that are different from the I
Frame and need lower bandwidth. Hence, when you need to transmit the pages without disruption
in a normal network environment, you can set up a higher GOP. For example, if GOP 15 is selected,
14 P Frame pages will follow 1 I Frame page, and so forth. However, packets may be lost when
they are transmitted in a congested network environment. In this case, the following P Frame pages
may bring about disruption of the transmission because they lose the reference upon which the
difference from the I Frame is identified. You may change GOP to 10 with this concern to avoid
disruption of the transmission. The GOP is 15 by default.
NOTE:
Due to the stream is the RTSP streaming, the mobile phone can be receive the stream from ALS-7721. Please make

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol that enables automatic assignment of
TCP/IP information to the client. Each DHCP client connects to the DHCP server to access its
network setting information, including IP address, gateway, and DNS server.
The IP address of the camera is 192.168.0.20 by default when DHCP is "OFF". When you select
"DHCP ON" and access the DHCP network environment, the camera will automatically send a
DHCP packet to request an IP address. This IP address is assigned automatically from the DHCP
server on the network. No additional settings are required for this page unless you need to change
the network configuration. The DHCP status of the camera is "OFF" by default.
Other settings:
For IP address, Subnet mask, Default gateway, DNS 1, and DNS 2, the DHCP server will assign
these values automatically when DHCP is in "ON" status; otherwise, you need to key in the values

(80 by default) to ensure passage through firewalls.
RTSP: Port 554 uses a fixed port (i.e. TCP) or can be defined by users to ensure reliable data
transmission. Video streams are transmitted through RTSP Port (554 by default) to avoid video
fragment or mosaics due to poor transmission quality.
RTP: Port 50000 to 60000 are UDP ports and can be defined by users. They provide the fastest but
also most unreliable transmission service. Video streams are transmitted through UDP Port
(50000~60000 by default) to ensure the fastest image transmission. However, video fragment or
mosaics may occur due to poor transmission quality.

Basic Setting > Network > PPPoE (Dial-up Networking Setting)
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet is a protocol that supports access to a high-speed wideband
network using a PC and a wideband modem (such as xDSL, Cable, Wireless modem). The user
need only to equip the PC with an Ethernet card and apply to an ISP and an ADSL provider (such
as Chunghwa Telecom) for ADSL service to roam the Internet through ordinary twisted copper
wires.
PPPoE setting must be executed in the LAN environment for your PC to connect to ADSL. Follow
the steps below to complete the setting:
1.

Basic Setting > Network > DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Server)
The IP address (Ex. 210.168.0.22) is like a telephone number, while the website address is like a
name in an address book. The DDNS allows the user to access the website by entering the name
of the website without memorizing a bunch of cold numbers.
When you apply for an Internet service, you will have at least one IP address from your ISP that is
either fixed or dynamic. Most of the ADSL service providers will give you a dynamic IP for ADSL
environments, which means your IP address will constantly change each time you connect to the
Internet. As a result, users from WAN environments will have much difficulty finding the correct IP
address. The DDNS (Dynamic DNS service) is created for exactly this kind of moment. By updating
your WAN IP address each time you connect to the Internet, the DDNS helps you locate your
website and access your website easily. You can find a lot of free DDNS service providers on the
Internet, such as www.no-ip.com and www.DynDNS.org.
Some gateway-routers can directly communicate with DDNS. In this case, you may directly enter
your DDNS account on the setting page in the Internet router, and then the router will update your
WAN IP status whenever it is changed and report to the DDNS. If your router does not support
direct communication with the DDNS, you can download a small application program on the DDNS
service page to help you update your WAN IP.

Application Setting > Event > Trigger (Manual test the response)
Whenever the camera detects abnormal events during the scheduled time, it will automatically
respond by performing trigger response. There are 2 types of trigger responses: alarm sending and
emailing the alarm or recorded image to the specified server. To use this function, enter the server
information by accessing Application Setting > Event > Event Server. You may perform manual test
as specified in this section once you complete the setting to ensure that all functions are working
properly.
The default status of the digital input pin is set as “Normal Open”, but users can change it to
“Normal Ground” by setting the page “Setting > Application > Event > Trigger”:
1. When alarm input is set to be “Normal Open”, then the external device connected to alarm input
pin should be in open status. So when the external device is triggered to close status, the alarm
input pin will be triggered.
2. On the contrary, when alarm input pin is set to be “Normal Grounded” then the external device
connected to alarm input pin should be in close status. So when the external device is triggered
to open status, the alarm input pin will be triggered.
(Please refer Appendix B: External Alarm A for detailed explanation.)

Appendix I: Troubleshooting and FAQs
Question
Answer and Solution
Function
What encoder and decoder
are used by the camera for
sounds and images?

simultaneously?
The camera uses MJPEG or H264 compression technology to provide
quality images. MJPEG is a standard image compression technology
applicable to different browsers without the need to install additional
software. H264 is a next-generation image compression standard and can
provide high image quality at low bandwidth.
The sound decoder uses PCM (Stereo, 16bit, 8kHz) compression
technology.
The maximum number of viewers depends on the bandwidth of the client
accessing the camera. About 5~6Mbps are used to process data of the
camera, so the maximum number of viewers changes in proportion to FPS
and the resolution of the image. Obviously, the higher the number of
viewers, the lower the performances at each client end.
