SurroundVideo® G5
Installation Manual Camera Overview The SurroundVideo® G5 multi-sensor, multi-megapixel dome camera pushes the boundaries of next
generation technology, providing users with four (4) integrated, motorized P-iris lenses for an incredible
180° panoramic experience in a single indoor/outdoor housing. SurroundVideo® G5 cameras provide
an all-in-one solution for capturing wide area video surveillance while maximizing the field-of-view and
reducing the total number of cameras required.
The SurroundVideo® G5 multi-megapixel camera series delivers 5-, 12-, or 20-megapixel resolutions.
For added flexibility, users can view the camera’s four (4) sensors individually or as a smooth transition
of all images blended together for a full 180° panoramic view. The camera is factory aligned with a
slight image overlap to ensure you never miss a thing.
The series combines a day/night mechanical IR cut filter for the highest image quality at any time of
day. The SurroundVideo® G5 camera features four (4) factory-installed P-iris lenses, ensuring the best
possible depth of field and image clarity for precise performance from each individual sensor. Once
mounted, the operator can quickly focus and position the camera remotely, eliminating the need to
adjust the camera on-site. No more hassle individually installing multiple cameras to cover a wide area,
manually focusing lenses, or risk missing critical information.
SurroundVideo® G5 is designed for demanding environments. Subjected and certified to rigorous dust
and water tests, the IP66 rating, and its extended operating temperature range make it ideal for outdoor
applications. The IK-10 rated, rugged dome housing is perfect for deterring vandals since it can
withstand the equivalent of 55 kg (120 lbs) of force.

Installation Manual In-ceiling Mount
To properly flush mount the SurroundVideo® G5 to a drop ceiling or similar surface, a flush mount
adapter kit (SV-FMA) is required (sold separately). An in-ceiling mount should only be attached onto
hard ceilings including wood, plastic, metal and concrete.
1. Cut a hole in the ceiling using the template provided to fit the camera housing.
NOTE: SurroundVideo® G5 ships with both surface mount and in-ceiling mount, the mounting
template takes both into consideration.
2. Loosen the four (4) machine screws with user-supplied #2 Phillips head screwdriver and remove
the in-ceiling mount housing from the surface mount housing (see Figure 4). Set surface mount
housing aside for future use.
Figure 3: Remove four (4) screws
NOTE: The above removed screws are also used to attach the camera with in-ceiling mount
housing to the pendant mount and wall mount. Do not discard.

Installation Manual Mounting Recommendations
For the best visibility toward the target, and a minimal blind spot below the camera, Arecont Vision
recommends mounting panoramic cameras 15-20ft off the ground. If the application is unable to meet
this criteria, for every 10ft the camera is mounted from the ground, expect a 10ft blind spot below, and
the camera should be aimed ~100ft, for every 10ft mounted from the ground, toward the horizon.
For example, a camera mounted at 30ft will have a 30ft blind spot below the camera and should be
aimed 300ft toward the horizon. In the example below, the camera in Figures 10B and 10C are both
mounted 30ft high; however, the camera in Figure 10B is aimed 250ft toward the horizon and the
camera in Figure 10C is only aimed 150ft toward horizon. As a result, the camera in Figure 10C will
have less than desirable results due to its higher curvature.

Figure 10B: Less curvature provides better results

30ft toward horizon. The camera in Figure 10E results in a drastic curvature with less usable video.

NOTE: If you use the side connection of the NPT port, remove the cap covering the side
entrance, otherwise; leave the cap in place. If using the NPT port, always use Teflon tape
around the threads to ensure proper sealing. The conduit fits ¾” NPT standard. Ensure NPT
port is facing downward.
4. Route the cable tree from the camera around the rear of the camera module and secure all
cables. See the Connections section for details on how to connect the camera.
5. Check that the indicator LED’s are illuminated to the desired conditions (see LED Indicator

CAUTION! The captive fasteners must be used to properly secure the dome cover. Failure
to use the captive fastener may result in serious injury. When mounting the dome cover to
the camera housing, ensure that the gasket is properly seated and not folded. Failure to
do so may result in water and dust ingress. Water damage from improper installation is not
covered by the warranty!

CAUTION! Make the connections inside a watertight compartment. Isolate unused power
wires individually.
After connections are made, ensure that the watertight compartment is tightly closed and
cables and conduits are properly sealed to prevent ingress of water.
3. Connect the PoE switch to your computer’s network port using an Ethernet cable.

Installation Manual System Requirements
Computer with Windows XP/Vista/7 operating system, network access, and Microsoft Internet Explorer
web browser version 9.0 or later (32-bit).
Camera Discovery, Setup, and Configuration
For camera discovery and setup, the AV IP Utility is recommended. The software can be found on the
CD included with your camera or at: http://www.arecontvision.com/softwares.php.
The AV IP Utility has the ability to provide multiple discovery options, including broadcast and multicast,
check the status of a camera, change camera settings, import and export camera settings via a .csv
file, and update firmware and/or hardware from virtually anywhere with a network connection.
Whether used for large installations that require an update to multiple settings, or smaller installations
where only one camera needs changed, the AV IP Utility tool is efficient and convenient for mass or
single camera uploads.
The AV IP Utility tool is compatible with all Arecont Vision® megapixel cameras. The user manual for
the software is included on the CD that came with your camera or available on our website.
Network Protocols
The Arecont Vision SurroundVideo® G5 cameras support RTSP, RTP/TCP, RTP/UDP, HTTP, DHCP,
TFTP, and IP version 4 (IPv4).
Note: Concurrent multi-streaming via RTSP and TFTP is not supported.
RTSP – Cameras communicate with video management systems over Real Time Streaming Protocol.
Do not change the RTSP port unless you are sure your VMS does not use the default setting.
RTP/TCP – The Real-time Protocol/Transmission Control Protocol is best suited for applications that
require high reliability, and transmission time is relatively less critical.
RTP/UDP – The Real-time Protocol/User Datagram Protocol is used for live unicast video, especially
when it is important to always have an up-to-date video stream, even if some images are dropped.
HTTP – The Hypertext Transfer Protocol is an application protocol for distributed, collaborative,
hypermedia information systems.
DHCP – The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol allows network administrators to centrally manage
and automate the assignment of IP addresses. DHCP should only be enabled if using dynamic IP
address notification, or if the DHCP can update a DNS server.

Installation Manual TFTP – The Trivial File Transfer Protocol is a simple, lock-step, File Transfer Protocol which allows a
client to get from or put a file onto a remote host. TFTP lacks security and most of the advanced
features offered by more robust file transfer protocols such as File Transfer Protocol.
QoS – Quality of Service guarantees a certain level of a specified resource to selected traffic on a
network. A QoS-aware network prioritizes network traffic and provides a greater network reliability by
controlling the amount of bandwidth an application may use.
IPv4 – This camera supports the IPv4 internet-layer protocol for packet-switched internetworking
across multiple IP networks. IPv4 uses 32-bit addressing which allows for devices and users on the
internet for routing traffic.
General Remote Focus
1. To control the remote focus via the web interface, double click the camera within the AV IP
Utility (Figure 1) or open your preferred web browser and type the camera’s IP address (Figure
2).
NOTE: For supporting H.264 streaming on a webpage, the recommended browsers are Internet
Explorer and Firefox.
