Auto track: Automatically tracks objects in the shooting area.

Operating Instructions 11

1 Monitor images on a PC

Note

With the Auto track feature, objects moving in the screen are picked out and automatically tracked.

In the following situations, targets may not be able to be tracked, or false detections may occur.

– when there is little contrast between the subject and the background

– when the dome is dirty or wet

– when there are large changes to the lighting intensity

– when there are many moving objects other than the subject

– when there is a change to the axis of the camera’s lens

– when the subject moves directly underneath the camera

– when there is harsh flickering

– when there are reflections from light entering the dome due to reflections from a window or road, or from a backlight

– when the target is hidden behind a utility pole or other objects

– when the subject passes by other moving objects

– when the target moves too fast or too slow

– when the camera is shaking

When the zoom ratio is set to the “Tele” side, it may be difficult to obtain accuracy with the auto tracking function. It is recommended to use the auto tracking function with setting the zoom ratio to the “Wide” side.

During auto tracking, if the camera is operated using the control pad or by other methods, or if an alarm occurs, auto tracking is stopped.

Auto pan: Automatically pans between the start position and the end position set in advance

(

®page 114).

Even when the camera is operated for zooming or focusing, the camera continues panning.

(However, panning will stop when the zoom button (x1) is clicked.)

Preset sequence: Automatically moves to the preset positions (

®page 111) orderly (start from the

lowest preset position number).

360 map-shot: Moves 45° horizontally at a time and repeats 8 times to shoot images of each 45° position (45° x 8 = 360°), and then displays 8 thumbnail images of each 45° position (45° x 8 = 360°) on a newly opened window. When a thumbnail image is clicked, the camera moves to the respective position and live images will be displayed on the “Live” page.

Preset map-shot: 8 thumbnail images of the preset position 1-8 (

®page 111) will be displayed orderly

on a newly displayed window. When a thumbnail image is clicked, the camera moves to the respective position and live images will be displayed on the “Live” page.

Note

Do not operate the browser until all the thumbnail images are displayed and the camera returns to the original position (where the camera was when “360 map-shot” or “Preset map-shot” was carried out).

When “360 map-shot” is carried out while the camera is moving (panning/tilting), images captured while panning/tilting may be displayed as the thumbnail display. In this case, stop the current operation and carry out “360 map-shot” again.

When “Preset map-shot” is carried out with an unregistered preset position (among preset position

1-8), the thumbnail image of the preset position before the unregistered preset position will be displayed.

In this case, the camera will not move when the thumbnail image is clicked.

The camera will not always return to the exactly same position where it was before “360 map-shot” or “Preset map-shot” was carried out. (It may sometimes be slightly different.)

The window on which the thumbnail images are displayed will close when clicking the following buttons that can switch the camera channel or reload images: [Live], [Multi-screen], [H.264],

[JPEG], [Stream], [Image capture size], [Image quality], [Setup].

12 Operating Instructions

SD memory card

[SD memory card]

Select “Use” or “Not use” to determine whether or not to use the SD memory card.

Default: Use

IMPORTANT

Select “Not use” when operating without an SD memory card.

Before removing the SD memory card from the camera, it is necessary to select “Not use” first. The recorded data may be corrupted if the SD memory card is removed when “Use” is selected.

When an SD memory card is inserted when “Use” is selected, data will be saved in accordance with the setting of “Save trigger”.

After inserting the SD memory card, it is necessary to select “Use” to use the SD memory card.

When playing or downloading images saved on the SD memory card, it is necessary to select “On” for

“Save logs” on the [Log] tab (

®page 79) in advance.

When the image refresh interval is short, notification/recording timing or interval may become incorrect.

Notification/recording may also not be performed correctly as configured when multiple users are receiving images. In this case, set the refresh interval longer.

There are limited times to overwrite on an SD memory card. When having a high frequency of overwriting, the lifetime of the SD memory card may become shorter.

A lifetime of an SD memory card should be influenced by the number of the image files stored and log savings on the SD memory card. Selecting “H.264(1)” or “H.264(2)” for “Recording format” can reduce the number of files that can be stored on the SD memory card.

If the data writing speed goes down after data is repeatedly written on an SD memory card, we recommend replacing the SD memory card.

[Recording format]

Select “JPEG”/“H.264(1)”/“H.264(2)” for the video encoding format of image data to be recorded on the SD memory card.

JPEG: Records still image data.

H.264(1): Records video data (H.264(1)) in the MP4 video encoding format. The data is recorded in accordance with the settings of “H.264(1)” on the [JPEG/H.264] tab of the “Image/Audio” page.

H.264(2): Records video data (H.264(2)) in the MP4 video encoding format. The data is recorded in accordance with the settings of “H.264(2)” on the [JPEG/H.264] tab of the “Image/Audio” page.

Default: JPEG

Note

When recording the same data as the “Live” pages, it is recommended that the same settings be configured for both the “Live” pages and “Recording format”. When recording data other than the

“Live” pages (for example, to reduce the data volume by lowering the image quality and image resolution), select image data other than the “Live” page from “Recording format”, and configure the settings for recording video data.

When “H.264(1)” is selected, the settings for “H.264(1)” on the [JPEG/H.264] tab of the “Image/

Audio” page will be changed to the settings for “H.264(1) & recording”.

When “H.264(2)” is selected, the settings for “H.264(2)” on the [JPEG/H.264] tab of the “Image/

Audio” page will be changed to the settings for “H.264(2) & recording”.

When using the SD memory recording function of a Panasonic network disk recorder, select “JPEG” for “Recording format”.

When the setting of “Recording format” is changed between “JPEG” and “H.264(1)” or “H.264(2)”, format the SD memory card. (

®page 67)

Due to the difference in file formats, the indication of remaining capacity of the SD memory card differs between the cases when “JPEG” is selected and when “H.264(1)” or “H.264(2)” is selected for

“Recording format”.

When there is wide variation between the illumination of light and dark areas of the location being monitored, the camera adjusts the lens iris in accordance with the brighter areas. This causes loss of detail in darker areas.

Conversely, adjusting the lens brightness for the darker areas causes the brighter areas to become washed out.

Super Dynamic digitally combines an image that is set up for a clear view of the brighter areas with an image that is set up for a clear view of the darker areas, creating a final image that preserves overall detail.

Mask areas cannot be configured separately for each preset position. The specified area is active for all the preset positions.

IMPORTANT

During auto tracking, if the tracking target enters the masked area, tracking will continue unchanged.

Note that the mask area will not be active in this situation.

IMPORTANT

Before using the DDNS service, it is necessary to perform the port forwarding setting for the router.

About Dynamic DNS Update (RFC2136 compliant)

Operation using DDNS services other than the “Viewnetcam.com” service is not guaranteed. We are not responsible for any troubles or accidents on the circumstances where the camera is used arising out of such services.

Operating Instructions 189

17 Configuring the network settings [Network]

Refer to the DDNS service providers for the selection and configuration of the DDNS services other than the “Viewnetcam.com” service.

Note

“Viewnetcam.com” is a Dynamic DNS service designed for use with Panasonic Network Cameras.

Refer to the “Viewnetcam.com” website (http://www.viewnetcam.com/) for further information about the service.

About DDNS services (IPv4/IPv6)

By using a DDNS service, it becomes possible to view camera images via the Internet.

The DDNS service associates dynamic global addresses and domain names.

It is possible to configure the settings for the “Viewnetcam.com” or Dynamic DNS Update (RFC2136 compliant).

In most of the DNS services offered by providers, global addresses are not static but dynamic. Therefore, access to the camera via an old global address may be invalidated after a certain period of time. Either of the following services is required when accessing a camera whose global address is not static via the Internet.

DDNS service (such as “Viewnetcam.com”)

It is possible to access via a registered and static domain name (example: *****.viewnetcam.com) even after the global address is changed. Enrollment in a domain name service is required even when using the

IPv6 connection.

Refer to the “Viewnetcam.com” website (http://www.viewnetcam.com/) for further information about the service.

Static IP address service (such as a service offered by a contracted provider)

In this service, global addresses are static (not changed).

Global address is changed.

The contracted provider allocates a global address to the router (or the camera). The global address is not static but dynamic.

“*****.viewnetcam.com” and the current global address is automatically registered.

If you are enrolled in “Viewnetcam.com”, the unique “domain name” (example: *****.viewnetcam.com) will be allocated. The “Viewnetcam.com” service server automatically manages the domain name of camera and the global address of router (or camera) when a camera automatically notifies the service server of the global address.

Current global address is automatically registered via “*****.viewnetcam.com”.

The “Viewnetcam.com” service server registers the global address and the domain name of router (or camera) in the DNS server.

Global address is obtained via the URL (domain name).

By entering the URL (including the domain name) on the web browser when accessing the camera via the

Internet, the DNS server identifies the registered global address of router (or camera).

Access using the current global address

The identified global address is used for accessing the router (or camera) to monitor images.

Note

Refer to the contracted provider whether the current IP address is static or not.

Depending on the provider, local addresses may be allocated. In this case, the DDNS service is unavailable. Refer to the contract provider for further information.

23 Troubleshooting

Before asking for repairs, check the symptoms with the following table.

Contact your dealer if a problem cannot be solved even after checking and trying the solution in the table or a problem is not described below.

Symptom

Cannot access from the web browser.

Cause/solution

Is the LAN cable (category 5e or better) firmly connected to the network connector of the camera?

Is the link indicator lit?

When it is not lit, connection to a LAN may not be established or a network may be not working correctly. Check if the cables have any contact failure or if the wiring is correct or not.

Is the power of the camera on?

Check if the power of the camera is turned on.

Are the set IP addresses valid?

Are you accessing the wrong IP address?

Check the connection as follows.

With the Windows command prompt, > ping “IP address of the camera”.

If there is reply from the camera, the connection is normal.

If there is no reply, check the connection with the following methods using a computer connected to the same network as the camera. If the firewall settings on the PC are enabled, temporarily disable them before performing settings on the camera.

Start the Panasonic “IP Setting Software”, confirm the camera's IP address, and then access that IP address.

If the network settings (IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway) are incorrect, reboot the camera and change the network settings by using the Panasonic “IP Setting Software” within

20 minutes after the restart.

In networks that do not have a DHCP server, the

IP address of the camera will be configured to

“192.168.0.10” when the camera is rebooted by holding the INITIAL SET button on the camera.

After the camera is initialized, access the camera and set the IP address again. (When the camera is initialized, all the settings of the camera previously configured on the setup menus will be initialized.)

23 Troubleshooting

Symptom

Cannot access from the web browser.

Cannot access the camera via the Internet.

Cause/solution

Is “554” selected for the HTTP port number?

For the HTTP port number, select a port number other than the following port numbers used by the camera. The number used by the camera: 20, 21,

23, 25, 42, 53, 67, 68, 69, 110, 123, 161, 162, 443,

554, 995, 10669, 10670, 59000 - 61000

Is the same IP address provided to other devices?

Are there contradictions between the address and the network subnet to be accessed?

When the camera and the PC are connected in the same subnet:

Are the IP addresses of the camera and the PC set in a common subnet? Or is “Use Proxy Server” for the settings of the web browser checked?

When accessing the camera in the same subnet, it is recommended to enter the address of the camera in the “Don’t Use Proxy For These Addresses” box.

When the camera and the PC are connected in the different subnet:

Is the IP address of the default gateway set for the camera correct?

Is the name currently used to access the camera different from the name registered for the

“Viewnetcam.com” service?

Access the camera again with the registered name.

Did you access “http://” while using the HTTPS function?

To use the HTTPS function, access “https://”. It is also necessary to enter the port number.

Are the network settings of the camera correct?

Set the default gateway or DNS server address correctly. To use the DDNS service, check that the settings are correct.

Is the setting for “Default gateway” on the

“Network” page configured? Or is the setting correct?

When communicating using IPv4:

Configure the setting for “Default gateway” of “IPv4 network” on the [Network] tab of the setup menu.

23 Troubleshooting

Symptom

Cannot access the camera via the URL of the

“Viewnetcam.com” service.

Authentication window is displayed repeatedly.

It takes time to display the screen.

Cause/solution

Is the setting of port forwarding configured for the router?

To enable the access to the camera via the Internet, it is necessary to perform the port forwarding setting when the router in use does not support the UPnP function. Refer to the manuals provided with the router for further information.

Is the UPnP function of the router disabled?

Refer to the manuals provided with the router in use to enable the UPnP function.

Is packet filtering set for the router to forbid the access via the Internet?

Configure the settings of the router in use to enable the access via the Internet. Refer to the manuals provided with the router for further information about the settings.

Are you accessing the camera using the local address (the IP address used in a local network)?

When accessing the camera, use the global address

(or the URL registered in the DDNS service) and the port number of the camera as the IP address to be used in the Internet.

Is the global address of camera (or router) notified to the “Viewnetcam.com” service server?

Log into the “My Account” page of

“Viewnetcam.com” website

(http://www.viewnetcam.com/) to check the information of the registered camera. If the global address is not displayed for the IP address, access the camera, and register the user information for the

“Viewnetcam.com” service on the [DDNS] tab on the

“Network” page of the setup menu. In addition, check the “Status” of “Viewnetcam.com” (on the

[Status] tab) and the system log (on the [System log] tab) of the “Maintenance” page of the setup menu.

Is the user name and password changed?

While accessing the camera, when changing the user name and password of another user logging into the camera on another web browser, the authentication window will be displayed each time the screen is changed or refreshed.

Have you changed the [Authentication] setting?

When the [Authentication] setting has been changed, close the web browser, and then access the camera again.

Are you accessing the camera in the HTTPS mode?

In this mode, the refresh interval becomes slower due to decode processing.
