Network Video Streamer
Network Video Streamer:
CEN-NVS100
Introduction
The CEN-NVS100 provides a simple solution for streaming video from any
camera to Crestron® touchpanels throughout the home, school, or business.
Compatible with Crestron touchpanels that support the MJPEG Viewer
application, the CEN-NVS100 allows easy monitoring of door entry cameras,
nursery cameras, or any other video feed. Examples of compatible touchpanels are
the TPMC-3X, TPMC-4XG, TPMC-8L, TPMC-8T, and TPMC-8X.
Dual codecs allow the simultaneous streaming of signals with two different video
settings. Video settings include adjustable image size, quality, and bit rate.
Additional options include text and time stamp overlay and also privacy masking
that allows any portion of the video image to be obscured. Up to three motion
detection windows can be defined, enabling automated control events in response to
movement in specific areas on the screen. Events can also be triggered by an external
motion detector connected to the digital input or by detection of a total loss of
video signal.
An RS-485 control port is included, allowing remote control of a pant/tilt/zoom
(PTZ) camera with select drivers built in to support Pelco D and other popular
models.

User Interface Overview
Have a question or comment about Crestron software?
Answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) can be viewed in the Online Help
section of the Crestron website. To post a question or view questions you have
submitted to Crestron’s True Blue Support, log in at http://support.crestron.com.
First-time users will need to establish a user account.
The CEN-NVS100 user interface allows configuration of the CEN-NVS100, control
of basic camera functions, viewing of streaming video, viewing of system
parameters, and performance of system maintenance functions.
Accessing the CEN-NVS100 User Interface
NOTE: Access to the CEN-NVS100 user interface must be performed from a PC
whose IP address is in the same IP subnet. The default configuration of the
CEN-NVS100 allows the IP address of the network video streamer to be
automatically assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server on
the local area network.
If a DHCP server does not exist on the network and 45 seconds have elapsed since
the CEN-NVS100 was powered on, the IP address of the CEN-NVS100 defaults to
169.254.0.99 and the subnet mask defaults to 255.255.0.0. If another device uses that
address, another address in the local link address space is selected for the
CEN-NVS100 (169.254.xxx.xxx).
The CEN-NVS100 user interface can be accessed from a Web browser or from the
Crestron Toolbox™:
•
You can access the CEN-NVS100 from a Web browser if you know the IP
address or host name of the CEN-NVS100.
NOTE: The default host name of the CEN-NVS100 is CEN-NVS100.
For additional information, refer to “Using a Web Browser” on page 10.
•
You can access the CEN-NVS100 from the Crestron Toolbox if the

Operations & Installation Guide – DOC. 6873A
Crestron CEN-NVS100
Network Video Streamer
Before configuring video settings, be aware of the following:
•
For the best real-time video images, the network bandwidth should be large
enough to allow a transmission rate of greater than 20 image frames per
second (fps).
⇒ If the broadband network is above 1 Mbps, set Constant Bit Rate
to 1000 Kbps or 1200 Kbps or set Fixed Quality to Excellent. Set
the Maximum Frame Rate to 30 fps.
⇒ If the network bandwidth is above 512 Kbps, set the Constant Bit
Rate according to the network bandwidth and set the Maximum
Frame Rate to 30 fps. If the images vary dramatically in your
environment, it may be preferable to slow the maximum frame rate
down to 20 fps in order to lower the rate of data transmission and
allow for better video quality.
⇒ If the network bandwidth is below 512 Kbps, set the Constant Bit
Rate according to the network bandwidth and fine-tune the
Maximum Refresh Rate to obtain the best performance. In a slow
network, a larger frame rate results in blurred images. In addition,
video quality varies depending on the number of users viewing on
the network. Performance may also suffer due to poor connectivity
because of the network’s burst constraint.
•
For the best video quality but less real-time performance, set Fixed Quality
to Detailed or Excellent and adjust the Maximum Frame Rate to match the
network bandwidth. If the network is slow and “broken” pictures result,
select TCP or HTTP as the MPEG-4 protocol option on the “Client
Settings” page as the more appropriate mode of transmission. The images
may suffer a time delay due to a slower connection. In addition, the delay
increases with an added number of users.
•
To compromise between real-time and video quality, set Fixed Quality to
Good or better. You can also set Constant Bit Rate according to the
network bandwidth and adjust the Maximum Frame Rate. To adjust the
Maximum Frame Rate, start with 30 fps for best results and adjust the
frame rate downward but not below 15 fps. If the image quality does not
improve, select a lower Constant Bit Rate setting.
Progressive Mode: Select the checkbox to convert interlaced pictures to progressive
pictures.
NOTE: Progressive mode must be enabled when using the largest frame size with
Firefox.
Mode: From the drop-down list, select MPEG-4 or JPEG:
•
MPEG-4 allows video and audio transmission but requires a Web browser
for playback.
NOTE: Most cell phones support media streaming with MPEG-4 video.
•
JPEG (motion JPEG) is compatible with Crestron TPMC touchpanels that
support the MJPEG Viewer application. Audio is not supported.
Operations & Installation Guide – DOC. 6873A
Network Video Streamer: CEN-NVS100 • 43

Crestron CEN-NVS100
Frame Size: From the drop-down list, select one of the following frame sizes:
•
176x120 NTSC/176x144 PAL (QCIF)
NOTE: Due to the limitation of bandwidth for 3GPP, only QCIF is
supported for cell phone viewing.
•
352x240 NTSC/352x288 PAL (CIF)
•
704x480 NTSC/704x576 PAL (4CIF)
Maximum Frame Rate: From the drop-down list, select the maximum refresh frame
rate in frames per second (fps). Note that for the largest video sizes the maximum
frame rate is automatically set to 15 fps.
Intra Frame Period: (Applicable to MPEG-4 mode only) From the drop-down list,
select the interval in seconds at which full frames are to be transmitted. A larger
interval improves performance but takes longer for initial connection.
Video Quality: Do either of the following:
•
For MPEG-4 mode, select Constant Bit Rate or Fixed Quality:
⇒ Constant Bit Rate favors speed over smoothness. Select the
desired speed from the drop-down list.
⇒ Fixed Quality favors smoothness over speed. Select the desired
video quality from the drop-down list. Fixed quality ranges from
Medium to Excellent. Medium favors performance over image
quality. Excellent favors image quality over performance.
Performance is also subject to network bandwidth and the number
of users.
•
For JPEG mode: Select the desired video quality from the drop-down list.
Video quality ranges from Medium to Excellent. Medium favors
performance over image quality. Excellent favors image quality over
performance. Performance is also subject to network bandwidth and the
number of users.
Configuring Audio Settings
NOTE: Audio configuration is applicable to MPEG-4 mode only and is not
