192.168.0.20, by itself as the default IP address.
IP address, Subnet mask, Gateway, 1st DNS, 2nd DNS server: If you do not select Obtain an
IP address automatically, then you need to enter these network parameters by yourself.
IP Address: This address is a unique numbers that identifies a computer or device on the WAN or
LAN. These numbers are usually shown in groups separated by periods, for example:
192.168.0.200
Subnet Mask: Subnets allow network traffic between hosts to be separated based on the
network's configuration. In IP networking, traffic takes the form of packets. IP subnets advance
network security and performance to some level by organizing hosts into logical groups. Subnet
masks contain four bytes and usually appear in the same "dotted decimal" data. For example, a
very common subnet mask in its binary demonstration 11111111 11111111 11111111 00000000 will
usually be shown in the corresponding, more readable form as 255.255.255.0.
Gateway: A gateway is a piece of software or hardware that passes information between
networks. You'll see this term most often when you either log in to an Internet site or when you're
transient email between different servers.
Primary DNS: When you send email or position a browser to an Internet domain such as
xxxxx.com, the domain name system translates the names into IP addresses. The term refers to
two things: the conventions for naming hosts and the way the names are control across the
Internet.
Secondary DNS: The same function as DNS1. It is option not necessary
Note: need to reboot the device to take this setting effect.
22/57
HTTP Port: The device supports two HTTP ports. The first one is default port 80 and this port is
fixed. This port is very useful for Intranet usage. The second HTTP port is changeable. Users
could assign the second port number of http protocol, and the WAN users should follow the port
number to login. If the http port is not assigned as 80, users have to add the port number in back of
IP address. For example: http://192.168.0.20:80.
If multiple devices are installed on the LAN and also required to be accessed from the WAN, then
the HTTP Port can be assigned as the virtual server port mapping to support multiple devices.
Video Port: Specify the transmission port number of video stream. The default value is 5000.
User can specify a number between 1024 and 65535.
Audio Port: The Audio port value is equal to Video port plus one and it cannot be modified by user
manually. (The function is useless in this model)
When the configuration is finish, please click “OK” to save and enable the setting.
3.5.2 DDNS server
DDNS: Stands for Dynamic Domain Name Server
The device supports DDNS. If your device is connected to xDSL directly, you might need this
feature. However, if your device is behind a NAT router, you will not need to enable this feature.
Because DDNS allows the device to use an easier way to remember naming format rather than an
IP address. The name of the domain is like the name of a person, and the IP address is like his
phone number. On the Internet we have IP numbers for each host (computer, server, router, and
so on), and we replace these IP numbers to easy remember names, which are organized into the
domain name. As to xDSL environment, most of the users will use dynamic IP addresses. If users
want to set up a web or a FTP server, then the Dynamic Domain Name Server is necessary. For
more DDNS configuration, please consult your dealer.
Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) provides you at least one IP address which you use to
connect to the Internet. The address you get may be static, meaning it never changes, or dynamic,
meaning it’s likely to change periodically. Just how often it changes, depends on your ISP. A
dynamic IP address complicates remote access since you may not know what your current WAN
IP address is when you want to access your network over the Internet. The solution to the dynamic
IP address problem comes in the form of a dynamic DNS service.
The Internet uses DNS servers to lookup domain names and translates them into IP addresses.
Domain names are just easy to remember aliases for IP addresses. A dynamic DNS service is
unique because it provides a means of updating your IP address so that your listing will remain
current when your IP address changes. There are several excellent DDNS services available on
the Internet and best of all they’re free to use. One such service you can use is www.DynDNS.org.
You’ll need to register with the service and set up the domain name of your choice to begin using it.
Please refer to the home page of the service for detailed instructions or refer to Appendix F for
more information.

more PPPoE and Internet configuration, please consult your ISP.
It can directly connect to the xDSL, however, it should be setup on a LAN environment to program
the PPPoE information first, and then connect to the xDSL modem. Power on again, then the
device will dial on to the ISP connect to the WAN through the xDSL modem.

Question
Answer or Resolution
Features
The video and audio codec
is adopted in the IVS-110.
The IVS-110 utilizes MPEG-4 and M-JPEG dual compression to
providing high quality images. Where MPEG-4 is a standard for
video compression and M-JPEG is a standard for image
compression.
The audio codec is selectable by either AMR or G.726 compression.
The maximum number of
users
access
IVS-110
simultaneously.
The maximum number of users is 10. However, it also depends on
the total bandwidth accessed to this device from clients. The data
throughput of the device is around 20~25Mbps. Therefore, the
actual number of connected clients is varying by settings of
resolution, codec type, frame rate and bandwidth. Obviously, the
performance of the each connected client will slow down when many
users are logged on.
The IVS-110 can be used
outdoors or not.
Yes, this IVS-110 is weatherproof. However, it might need to be
equipped with a weatherproof case for better performance.

firewall with your system or network administrator. The firewall may
need to have some settings changed in order for the IVS-110 to be
accessible outside your LAN.
• Make sure that the IVS-110 isn’t conflicting with any other web
server running on your LAN.
• Check the configuration of the router settings allow the IVS-110 to
be accessed outside your local LAN.
• Check the bandwidth of Internet connection. If the Internet
bandwidth is lower than target bit rate, the video streaming will not
work correctly.

Use the operating system of the selected language. Set the
Encoding or the Character Set of the selected language on the
Internet Explorer.

Frame rate is slower than
the setting.
• The traffic of the network and the object of the image affect the
frame rate. The network congestion causes frame rate slower than
the setting.
• Check the bandwidth of Internet connection. If the Internet
bandwidth is lower than target bit rate, the video streaming will not
work correctly.
• Ethernet switching hub can smooth the frame rate especially in
viewing on the Multi-Camera screen.
Image Transfer on e-mail
or FTP does not work.
• Default Gateway and DNS server address should be set up
correctly.
• If FTP does not work properly, ask your ISP or network
administrator about the transferring mode of FTP server.
Miscellaneous

Appendix D: PING IP Address
The PING (stands for Packet Internet Groper) command is used to detect whether a specific IP
address is accessible by sending a packet to the specific address and waiting for a reply. It’s
also a very useful tool to confirm IVS-110 installed or if the IP address conflicts with any other
devices over the network.
If you want to make sure the IP address of IVS-110, utilize the PING command as follows:
z Start a DOS window.
z Type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the IVS-110.
The replies, as illustrated below, will provide an explanation to the problem.
If you want to detect any other devices conflicts with the IP address of IVS-110, also can utilize
the PING command but you must disconnect the IVS-110 from the network first.

Appendix E: Bandwidth and Video Size
Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the IVS-110 depends on connection bandwidth
between client and server, video resolution, codec type, and quality setting of server. Here is a
guideline to help you roughly estimate the bandwidth requirements for your IVS-110.
The required bandwidth depends on content of video source. The slow motion video will
produce smaller bit rate generally and fast motion will produce higher bit rate vice versa.
Actual results generated by the IVS-110 may be varying.
Image Resolution
Average range of Data Sizes
for JPEG mode
Average bit rate for MPEG4 mode
160 x 120 (QQVGA)
3 ~ 6k byte per frame
64kbps~384kbps @ 30fps
320 x 240 (QVGA)
8 ~ 20k byte per frame
128kbps~768kbps @ 30fps
640 x 480 (VGA)
20 ~ 50K byte per frame
256kbps~4096kbps @ 30fps
Note: Audio streaming also takes bandwidth around 5 kbps to 64kbps. Most
xDSL/Cable modem upload speeds may not even reach up to 128 kbps. Thus,
you may not be able to receive any video while streaming audio on a 128 kbps or
lower connection. Even though the upload speed is more than 128kbps, for
optimal video performance, disabling audio streaming will get better video
performance.

Appendix F: DDNS Application
1. Preface
If you have a Cable modem or xDSL, this is a great way to host your own Networked
Device or other TCP/IP Service. Get your own domain like www.yourname.com,
www.yourname.com.tw etc. (Note: This domain must be registered with Internic via
registration authorities such as Network Solutions, DirectNIC, Register.com etc). Your
domain name's dynamic IP address is automatically tracked by a DDNS server.
Host your own Networked Device and much more no matter what your computer's IP
address may be and even if you have dialup, DSL or cable modem internet connection
where your computer's IP address changes all the time!! DDNS service supports all top
level domain names including but not limited to .com, .net, .org, .to, .uk etc.
2. Ethernet Network Environment
Normally, DDNS service is only necessary for the users that could only obtain dynamic IP
addresses. As to the users that could obtain the static valid IP address, they do not usually
have to apply the DDNS service. Before we decide if DDNS is necessary for the users, we
have to check what kind of Ethernet network environment we have to install our Networked
Device on.
(1) Environment of Fixed Valid IP Network
If users could obtain valid IP addresses, they could save the effort to apply DDNS service.
Because the IP address in this environment is fixed, users could input the IP address or
domain name of demo site directly in the IE browser.
(2) Environment of Dynamic IP Network
If users is under an environment of dynamic IP network (Dial-up xDSL), they have to apply
a domain name in advance. Then apply DDNS service. Finally setup the necessary
information of DDNS and PPPoE of the Networked Device in order to let the outside
administrator be able to access through internet.
3. Application Steps – DDNS & Domain Name
(1). Visit the following web site: http://www.dyndns.org/
(2). Click “Account”
52/57
(3). After the columns show up at the left side, click “Create Account”.
(4). Fill the application agreement and necessary information.
a. Username
b. E-mail address and confirmation
c. Password and confirmation
d. Submit all the input information and finish creating an account
53/57
Click these two options
(5). Check your e-mail mailbox. There will be an e-mail with a title “Your DynDNS Account
Information“. Click the hyperlink address to confirm the DDNS service that you just
applied. Then DDNS you applied activated.
54/57
Click to confirm
(6). Enter the web page http://www.dyndns.org/ again. Input your username and password
that you just applied to login administration interface of DDNS server.
Input your account
(7). If the correct username and password are input, you can see the following picture at
the top-right of the login page.
(8). Click the “Services”.
55/57
(9). Click the “ Dynamic DNS ”.
(10). Click the “Create Hosts”.
(11). We could create a domain name without any charge at this step. First, we input the
host name. (No.1) Then we pick a domain that is easy to remember. Finally (No.2), click
the “Add Host” to submit the domain name information. (No.3)

4. Setup the DDNS and PPPoE of Network Device
At last, users have to enter the web page of Networked Device and setup the necessary
information of DDNS and PPPoE after the application of DDNS service. Please check the
user manual to access the DDNS and PPPoE pages. After saving the modification, restart
the device. The external users could browse the Networked Device by the input of their
domain name.
