1.2 Key Features
•
Brilliant video quality
The network camera offers the highly efficient H.264 video compression, which drastically
reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG
is also supported for increased flexibility.
•
Triple streams
The network camera can deliver triple video streams simultaneously at full frame rate in all
resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 using Motion JPEG and H.264 (or MPEG-4). This means that
several video streams can be configured with different compression formats, resolutions and
frame rates for different needs.
•
Image setting adjustment
The network camera also enables users to adjust image settings such as contrast, brightness and
saturation to improve images before encoding takes place.
•
Micro-SD Recording support
The network camera also supports a micro-SD memory slot for local recording with removable
storage.
•
Improved Security
The network camera logs all user access, and lists currently connected users. Also, its full frame
rate video can be provided over HTTPS.
•
Megapixel Resolution
Max 30fps@1920x1080.
•
Power over Ethernet
Support for Power over Ethernet (IEEE802.3af) enables the unit, as well as the camera module
that is connected to it, to receive power through the same cable as for data transmission. This
makes for easy installation since no power outlet is needed.
•
ONVIF
This is a global interface standard that makes it easier for end users, integrators, consultants,
and manufacturers to take advantage of the possibilities offered by network video technology.
ONVIF enables interoperability between different vendor products, increased flexibility, reduced
cost, and future-proof systems.

2.3 Network Connection and IP assignment
The network camera is designed for use on an Ethernet network and requires an IP address for
access. Most networks today have a DHCP server that automatically assigns IP addresses to
connected devices. By factory default, your camera is set to obtain the IP address automatically via
DHCP server. If your network does not have a DHCP server the network camera will use
192.168.1.100 as the default IP address.
If DHCP is enabled and the product cannot be accessed, run the “Smart Manager” utility on the CD to
search and allocate an IP address to your products or reset the product to the factory default settings
and then perform the installation again.

16
2) Network
The network camera supports both IP version 4 and IP version 6. Both versions may be enabled
simultaneously, and at least one version must always be enabled. When using IPv4, the IP address for
the network camera can be set automatically via DHCP, or a static IP address can be set manually.
If IPv6 is enabled, the network camera receives an IP address according to the configuration in the
network router. There is also the option of using the Internet Dynamic DNS Service. For more
information on setting the Network, please see Setup> System>Security>Network.
•
Obtain IP address via DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol
that lets network administrators centrally manage and automate the assignment of IP
addresses on a network. DHCP is enabled by default. Although a DHCP server is mostly
used to set an IP address dynamically, it is also possible to use it to set a static, known IP
address for a particular MAC address.
•
Use the following IP address - To use a static IP address for the network camera,
check the radio button and then make the following settings:
IP address - Specify a unique IP address for your network camera.
Subnet mask - Specify the mask for the subnet the network camera is located on.
Default router - Specify the IP address of the default router (gateway) used for
connecting devices attached to different networks and network segments.
Notes:
1. DHCP should only be enabled if using dynamic IP address notification, or if your DHCP server can
update a DNS server, which then allows you to access the Network Camera by name (host name).
If DHCP is enabled and you cannot access the unit, you may have to reset it to the factory
default settings and then perform the installation again.
2. The ARP/Ping service is automatically disabled two minutes after the unit is started, or as soon as
an IP address is set.
3. Pinging the unit is still possible when this service is disabled.
17
3) Video & Image
•
Stream1 Setting
Codec:
The codec settings are separated into MPEG4 and H.264.
H.264 is also known as MPEG-4 Part 10. This is the new generation compression standard for digital
video. This function offers higher video resolution than Motion JPEG or MPEG-4 at the same bit rate and
bandwidth, or the same quality video at a lower bit rate.
There are 4 pre-programmed stream profiles available for quick set-up.
Choose the form of video encoding you wish to use from the drop-down list:
*
*
*
H.264 HP (High Profile): The primary profile for broadcast and disc storage applications,
particularly for high-definition television applications (for example, this is the profile
adopted by the Blu-ray Disc storage format and the DVB HDTV broadcast service).
H.264 MP (Main Profile):
Primarily for low-cost applications that requires additional error robustness, this profile is
used rarely in videoconferencing and mobile applications, it does add additional error
resilience tools to the Constrained Baseline Profile. The importance of this profile is fading
after the Constrained Baseline Profile has been defined.
H.264 BP (Baseline Profile):
Originally intended as the mainstream consumer profile for broadcast and storage
applications, the importance of this profile faded when the High profile was developed for
those applications.
18
*
MPEG4 SP (Simple Profile):
Mostly aimed for use in situations where low bit rate and low resolution are mandated by
other conditions of the applications, like network bandwidth, device size, etc.
-
Resolution:
Resolution enables users to determine a basic screen size when having access through the
Web Browser or PC program. The screen size control comes in several modes, such as
1920x1080, 1280x1024, 1280x720, 800x600, 704x480 (576), 640x480, 352x240 (288) and
320x240. Users can reset the selected screen size anytime while monitoring the screen on a
real-time basis.
-
Bitrate control:
The bit rate can be set as Variable Bit Rate (VBR) or Constant Bit Rate (CBR). VBR adjusts
the bit rate according to the image complexity, using up bandwidth for increased activity in
the image, and less for lower activity in the monitored area.
CBR allows you to set a fixed target bitrate that consumes a predictable amount of
bandwidth. As the bit rate would usually need to increase for increased image activity, but in
this case cannot, the frame rate and image quality are affected negatively. To partly
compensate for this, it is possible to prioritize either the frame rate or the image quality
whenever the bit rate needs to be increased. Not setting a priority means the frame rate and
image quality are equally affected.
-
Bitrate:
When it is necessary to adjust a smooth transmission status according to network situations,
users can increase the compressibility to carry out the network transmission stably.
Alternatively, when it is necessary to maintain a detailed monitoring screen by enhancing
the image quality, users can do so by decreasing the compressibility. In each case, adjust
this function according to the network status and monitoring purposes. The default is 2000
(Kbps).
-
Frame rate:
Upon the real-time play, users should select a frame refresh rate per second. If the rate is
high, the image will become smooth. On the other hand, if the rate is low, the image will not
be natural but it can reduce a network load.
-
GOP size:
Select the GOP (Group of Picture) size. If users want to have a high quality of fast image
one by one, decrease the value. For the purpose of general monitoring, do not change a
basic value. Such act may cause a problem to the system performance. Vicon recommends
that GOP be the same as the fps.
19
•
Stream2 Setting
Sometimes the image size is large due to low light or complex scenery. Adjusting the frame rate
and quality helps to control the bandwidth and storage used by the Motion JPEG video stream in
these situations. Limiting the frame rate and quality optimizes bandwidth and storage usage, but
may give poor image quality. To prevent increased bandwidth and storage usage, the Resolution,
Frame rate, and Frame Quality should be set to an optimal value.
•
-
JPEG resolution: Same as the Stream1 Resolution Setting.
JPEG frame rate: Same as the Stream1 Framerate Setting.
-
JPEG quality:
Select the picture quality. If users want to have a high quality of fast image one by one,
please decrease the value. For the purpose of general monitoring, please do not change a
basic value. Such act may cause a problem to the system performance.
Stream3 Setting
Use the same as the Stream1 settings.

52
 NAT
A broadband router allows devices on a private network (LAN) to share a single connection to the
Internet. This is done by forwarding network traffic from the private network to the “outside”, that is,
the Internet. Security on the private network (LAN) is increased since most broadband routers are
pre-configured to stop attempts to access the private network (LAN) from the public network/Internet.
Use NAT when your network cameras are located on an intranet (LAN) and you wish to make it
available from the other (WAN) side of a NAT router. With NAT traversal properly configured, all HTTP
traffic to an external HTTP port in the NAT router is forwarded to the network camera.
Notes:
For NAT traversal to work, this must be supported by the broadband router.
The broadband router has many different names:
“NAT router”, “Network router“, Internet Gateway”, “Broadband sharing device” or “Home
firewall” but the essential purpose of the device is the same.
53
•
NAT traversal Settings

new port number and click Save.
When the settings are complete, click Save, or click Reset to revert to previously saved settings.
 Zeroconfig
Zeroconfig allows the network camera to create and assign IP address for network cameras and
connect to a network automatically.
Zero configuration networking (zeroconf), is a set of techniques that automatically creates a usable
Internet Protocol (IP) network without manual operator intervention or special configuration servers.
54
Zero configuration networking allows devices such as computers and printers to connect to a network
automatically. Without zeroconf, a network administrator must set up services, such as Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name System (DNS), or configure each computer's
network settings manually, which may be difficult and time-consuming.
Zeroconf is built on three core technologies:
• Assignment of numeric network addresses for networked devices (link-local address auto
configuration)
• Automatic resolution and distribution of computer hostnames (multicast DNS)
• Automatic location of network services, such as printing devices through DNS service discovery.
Click the checkbox to enable Zeroconf.

General performance considerations
When setting up your system, it is important to consider how various settings and situations will affect
performance. Some factors affect the amount of bandwidth (the bitrate) required, others can affect
the frame rate, and some affect both. If the load on the CPU reaches its maximum, this will also affect
the frame rate.
The following factors are among the most important to consider:
-. High image resolutions and/or lower compression levels (or high bitrates) result in larger images.
Frame rate and bandwidth affected.
-. Accessing both Motion JPEG and H.264 video streams simultaneously. Frame rate and bandwidth
affected.
-. Heavy network utilization due to poor infrastructure. Frame rate and bandwidth affected.
-. Heavy network utilization via wireless router due to poor infrastructure. Frame rate and bandwidth
affected.
-. Viewing on poorly performing client PCs lowers perceived performance. Frame rate affected.
