1. Introduction – v3.01 with H.264
In addition to MPEG-4, the TZtouch v3.01 software is also compatible with H.264 format, which offers a wider selection
of cameras from Axis Communications AB. Native H.264 formatted images occupy a great amount of bandwidth for the
TZT9/14/BB Ethernet network. In addition to conventional settings, such as IP address, be sure to set the resolution to
800 x 600 (4:3) pixels or lower, and compression level to "30". This document describes the procedures for setting up
Axis IP cameras and video servers using the H.264 format.
Note: MPEG-4 compatible Axis cameras, which were compatible with TZtouch v2.01 software (or earlier), continue to
work with v3.01. For MPEG-4 cameras, you should continue following conventional set-up procedures.
2. Overview
2-1. Summary – Setup Procedure
In order to view and control Axis IP cameras from the TZT9/14/BB, it is necessary to assign an IP address to each Axis
IP camera. This procedure requires a Windows PC connected via Ethernet to the Axis IP camera(s). Pre-wiring and
installing all cameras on the vessel first is recommended. This will allow you to configure all of the Axis IP cameras at the
same time by networking the cameras to the PC through a hub. It is necessary to set up the IP address of the PC and use
the AXIS IP Utility program, which is included with the camera, to configure the camera’s IP address. See Section 3 for
PC setup before connecting it to an IP camera or video server. See Section 4 for further settings on IP cameras and
Section 5 for video servers.

3. Setting up a PC
This section describes how to assign a dedicated IP address to a PC. In this example, a Windows 7 PC is used.
1. Access [Start] – [Control Panel].
2. Open [Network and Sharing Center].
3. Open [Change adapter settings].
4. Right-click on [Local Area Connection] and select [Properties].
5
5. Select [Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)] and click on [Properties].
6. Fill the IP fields as shown below.
IP address: “172.31.3.50”
Subnet mask: “255.255.0.0”
7. Click on [OK] to confirm and close two windows on Step 6 and 5.
Note: It can take up to 20 seconds for the new IP to be recognized. A popup window on the bottom right corner should
show when the IP is correctly set. Turn OFF any Firewall that could prevent data to be exchanged between NavNet and
the PC. You may also have to restart your computer.

4. Setting up Axis IP Camera
4-1. Setting up IP Address of Axis IP Cameras
To work with NavNet TZtouch, Axis IP cameras need to be set up with specific IP Addresses. Up to four (4) IP cameras
can be connected to a TZtouch network.
Axis IP Camera No. 1
Axis IP Camera No. 2
Axis IP Camera No. 3
Axis IP Camera No. 4
172.031.200.003
172.031.200.004
172.031.200.005
172.031.200.006
In this example, two (2) sets of Axis M1011 are used.
1. Load the Axis CD “Network video products,” which is included with the Axis camera. The Auto-run software should
appear (If the auto-run is not working on your computer, browse the CD and double click on [Setup])
2. Select [Install Product].
3. Click on [AXIS IP Utility [Download]] to download the AXIS IP Utility program.
7
4. Install the AXIS IP Utility program on your PC.
5. Double-click on [AXIS IP Utility] to open the program.
The following window will open, showing the detected cameras in the network.
Note: If you use the same camera models in multiple locations, be sure to write down the serial numbers of each camera,
along with their intended location, to help correctly assign the IP camera’s name.
6. To change the IP address, select a camera and click on “assign new IP address to selected device” button.
7. Enter the correct IP address and click on [Assign]. In this example, “172.31.200.3” will be assigned.
This process may take a few moments to complete.
8
8. Verify the IP address was successfully updated.
9. Repeat this process with all of the other camera(s).
10. After the IP addresses have been changed, restart the cameras (power OFF/ON).
4-2. Configuring Axis IP Camera
Axis IP cameras must be configured using a Web browser.
1. Enter the IP address of the camera in the browser’s navigation bar. In this example, “http://172.31.200.4” is entered.
2. The camera configuration page will open. Click on [Setup] to access the configuration page.
3. When prompted, enter the ID and Password noted below, and then click on [OK].

: “root”
Password : “pass”
Note: When the webpage loads, pay attention to the top of the page to authorize the installation of the ActiveX®. Click
on the yellow bar and choose “Install ActiveX”.

4. After entering the ID and password noted above, the Setup page will open.
5. In [Basic Setup] – [1 Users], select [Enable anonymous viewer login] and click on [Save].
6. In [Basic Setup] – [3 Date & Time], select [Synchronize with computer time] and click on [Save].
7. In [Basic Setup] – [4 Video Stream] – [Image] tab, set [Resolution] to less than [800x600 (4:3)] and
10
[Compression] to [30] and click on [Save]. In this example, [640x480 (4:3)] is selected as the resolution, because
this is the maximum resolution supported by the M1011.
Tips: For cameras supporting a higher resolution than the M1011, such as the M5013, be sure to set the [Resolution]
to [800x600 (4:3)].
8. In [Basic Setup] – [4 Video Stream] – [H.264] or [MPEG-4 & H.264] tab, set as follows.
Optional Settings
(1) PTZ
When using a PTZ (moving) camera, you can set up the default “Home”
position. In [PTZ configuration] – [Preset Positions], adjust the view of the
default camera position using the control.
11
Note:
It is recommended to zoom in on the image to have a better “Home” preset. When the view
is correctly set up, type “Home” for the Current position and select [Use current position
as Home]. Click on [Add] to validate.
If you do not need the camera to return to the “Home” position automatically after 30 sec,
just put [0] and validate.
(2) Aspect Ratio Correction
Some Axis IP camera models have a setting option of aspect ratio correction in [Basic Setup] – [4 Video Stream].
Make sure to select [Aspect ratio correction].

can be connected to the TZtouch network. In this example, the Axis M7014 is used.
Axis Video Server No. 1
Axis Video Server No. 2
172.031.200.007
172.031.200.008
Follow Steps 1 through 4 in Section 4-1, then continue on to step 5 below.

The following window will open, showing the detected cameras in the network.
6. To change the IP address, select a camera and click on “assign new IP address to selected device”.
7. Enter the correct IP address and click on [Assign]. In this example, “172.31.200.7” will be assigned.
This process may take a few moments to complete.
8. Verify the IP address was successfully updated.
9. Repeat this process with the second video server, if available.
10. After the IP address is changed, restart the video server (power OFF/ON).
13
