Main Features

IPv6

*1

Network Camera

Your Panasonic Network Camera supports IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6), IPv6 was created to address the additional IP addresses that will be needed as the

Internet continues to expand. Since the camera also supports IPv4 that's currently used, it is "dual stack" design will seamlessly operate while IPv6 is phased in. For

more information in IPv6 you wish to visit http://www.ipv6.org/. See page 15 for

more information.

Audio 2-way Communication

*2

(Walkie-talkie Type)

2-way audio communication is now possible between your Network Camera and

PC. By connecting a user-supplied microphone and speaker

*3

to both the camera and to the PC, you will be able to speak to and hear anyone within range of the camera.

For example, the camera can be used in the following various locations:

• In the baby's room, to hear if the baby is crying.

• At the front door, to see and hear who is at the door.

• In the children's play room, to see and hear if they are safe.

Note

PLEASE NOTE that under certain circumstances, audio/video recording may be PROHIBITED by law. This device should be used only in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local statutes.

Better Image Quality

The CCD sensor and the color night view mode provides better image quality and low light performance.

• The CCD sensor gives you clear image.

• You can monitor live video (Motion JPEG) that refreshes its image 30 frames per second.

• Color night view mode allows you to monitor the camera in low illuminance.

To connect in IPv6, subscribe to the ISP's "IPv4/IPv6 Dual-Stack" or "IPv6 over IPv4

Tunneling" service. The camera does not work in IPv6-only network.

Audio feature does not work well on cell phones. Talk button and Listen button cannot be used simultaneously. In consequence of traffic and network environments, the audio may be delayed or may break up.

The speaker connected to the camera requires a built-in amplifier.

Operating Instructions

Remote Pan/Tilt/Zoom/Focus

The following features allow you to operate Network Camera from web browser on your PC. High speed Pan/Tilt operation can move the lens horizontally from -175° to +175° and vertically from -120° to 0° in mounting on the table and from 0° to +90° in mounting on the ceiling. This movable lens allows you to view a wide range of perspective from a distant place. Network Camera has a 42x magnifying capacity: a 21x optical zoom and a 2x digital zoom. Automatic and Manual Focusing features provide you with detailed and distinct images. Additionally, the following control features are available to easily and quickly monitor the camera.

To Access the Camera in IPv6

You need to prepare the followings to access the camera in IPv6.

Operating Instructions

PC Requirements

Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 1 or later

Web Browser: Internet Explorer 6.0 or later

An IPv6 Router

An IPv6 Connection Service

To connect in IPv6, subscribe to the ISP's "IPv4/IPv6 Dual-Stack" or "IPv6 over

IPv4 Tunneling" service. The camera does not work in IPv6-only network.

IPv6 Domain Name Service

In Windows XP, you cannot access the camera entering IP address on the web browser. You need to enter IPv6 URL registered in the domain name service. We recommend Viewnetcam.com service (see page 25 of the Installation/

Troubleshooting) as a domain name service. Ask your ISP about other IPv6 domain name service.

What is IPv6?

• IPv6 is short for "Internet Protocol Version 6".

• IPv6 was created to address the additional IP addresses that will be needed as the Internet continues to expand.

• IPv6 is expected to gradually replace IPv4, with the 2 coexisting for a number of years during a transition period.

• Though most ISPs (Internet Service Providers) do not yet support IPv6, many local networks already use it. When your ISP supports IPv6, your

Panasonic Network Camera will be ready!

• For more information you wish to visit http://www.ipv6.org/.
