IP Camera and Encoder Software Manual
v

www.digiop.com
SECTION 1: INTRODUCTION
SECTION 1
Introduction
This manual describes the firmware features Digiop Black encoders and cameras as seen through a web interface using Microsoft ®
Internet Explorer® (IE). The web interface uses these protocols:
•
•
•
HTTP API: Parameter configuration commands
RTP/RTSP: Video, Audio, and metadata streaming
ActiveX program: tool to send data to a web page, such as a video stream
NOTE
This manual is based on a H.264 network video encoder. The web based user interface for all encoders and IP cameras is similar.
However, because of feature differences, items included on some menus differ between models. Refer to the Section 5. Reference to
Models, for more information.
1.1 Getting started
When your IP camera or encoder is attached to a network and initially powered on, by default it attempts acquire compatible
network settings from a DHCP server. If it cannot find a DHCP server, it configures itself with the following static IP address, subnet
mask, and gateway setting, which may or may not be compatible with other devices on the network.
IP address:
Subnet mask:
Gateway:
192.168.0.100
255.255.255.0
192.168.0.1
Whether it acquires a dynamic (changeable) IP address and other network settings from a DHCP server, or uses the default static
(fixed, unchanging) settings, your camera or encoder must be configured with static network settings that are compatible with the
network configuration. Additionally, if DHCP is not used on your network, DIGIOP Black cameras and encoders must be installed on
the network and configured with new network settings one at a time to avoid addressing conflicts.
After configuring the network settings for your camera or encoder, the IE browser is used to access the camera to setup the
application specific configuration.
1.1.1 Installing the IPAdmin Tool
The IPAdmin Tool, included on the CD mini disk, will discover all DIGIOP Black IP cameras and encoders installed on your network
and enable you to perform the initial network setup for each camera. After a camera is setup on the network, the Microsoft Internet
Explorer® web browser can be used to see video from the camera, set the camera’s password, date and time, finalize camera
hardware adjustments, and configure the camera for functional requirements.
The IPAdminTool can be loaded on a Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 operating system. To use this utility for the initial
setup of your camera, your computer must be connected to the same network subnet as your camera.

SECTION 2: INSTALLATION AND SETUP
At a computer on the same LAN (subnet) where your cameras will be installed, do the following:
1.
Insert the CD mini disk provided with your camera into your computer’s CD ROM drive and open the CD in a Windows
Explorer window.
2.
Find the IPAdminTool directory on the CD.
3.
Copy the IPAdminTool directory with its contents to your computer hard drive.
1.1.2 Installing cameras and encoders on networks with DHCP
In networks with a DHCP server, the IP camera will acquire dynamic (changeable) network settings when it is initially powered on.
These dynamic settings can easily be converted to static settings, or changed to other static settings that are also compatible with
your network.
1.
Find the product label on your camera or encoder and record MAC address for future reference:
MAC address ____________________
2.
Connect your IP camera or encoder to the LAN, then power on the camera.
3.
Open the IPAdminTool directory on your computer, then double click the file IPAdminTool.exe to start the application.
When the IPAdmin Tool starts, it will discover all the IP devices it supports that exist on the network. The discovery process
may take a few minutes.
Check the list of IP devices found by IPAdmin Tool. You can identify your camera by the MAC address. If the camera was not
found, click Refresh once every minute until your camera appears in the list.

4.
In the IPAdmin Tool device list, use the camera’s MAC Address to find the camera you are installing. After finding the camera,
right click the entry, then select IP Address from the drop-down list. An IP Setup window will open.
5.
In the IP Setup window, click the Static option bullet to select it.
Static
Option
If you have other compatible, network settings you want to apply to the device, enter them in the appropriate locations. Click
Setup to save settings.
6.
In the Login window, enter the ID and PW (password) for your camera and click Login. The default administrator values for
the ID and PW are root and pass. After entering ID and PW, the IP Setup window closes.
7.
In the IPAdmin Tool window, click Refresh and verify that the entry representing the camera now shows the new IP address.

In networks without a DHCP server, cameras must be powered on and reconfigured one at a time to avoid addressing conflicts
between other cameras, or possibly with another device on the network. Configuring the network settings of your cameras includes
these steps:
——
——
——
Check the network for compatibility with the default static network settings of your camera or encoder.
Determine what network settings (IP addresses) are not in use and can be assigned to your camera.
Attach your camera to the network, power it on, and configuring it with new network settings.
Use standard procedures to check the network for compatibility with the default static network settings of your camera or encoder,
and determine the best settings to apply to device.
Changing the device IP address
1.
Open the IPAdminTool directory on your computer, then double click the file IPAdminTool.exe to start the application.
When the IPAdmin Tool starts, it will discover all the IP devices it supports that exist on the network. The discovery process
may take a few minutes.
2.

SECTION 3: SETUP CONFIGURATION
Although the default setting for Digiop Black devices is HTTP, selecting HTTPS is highly recommended for security. Digiop Black
devices use OpenSSL.
What is SSL?
SSL, Secure Socket Layer, protects the web server content and the video and audio data by using encryption when
transferring files to and from the server. When you use HTTPS for communication with server, an SSL certificate, containing
encryption keys, is used to encrypt/decrypt data during online transactions.
Setting the port number of web server
To communicate with a server by HTTP or HTTPS with TCP/IP, the port number can be fixed between 1 and 65535. The factory
default TCP/IP port for HTTPS is 443; the default port for HTTP is 80.
When using HTTPS, do not use port 80. Otherwise, port conflicts may occur.
Client Cache enable content expiration
If Client Cache expiration is enabled, the content in cache remains valid for one day only.
3.2.3 Date & Time Setting
The device clock is used to timestamp log entries and can be burnt into to video images. Since log entries and video provide a record
of events, it is extremely important that the device clock be set correctly. When the device clock setting is changed, the web server
is restarted.
To set the device clock, go to: SETUP > Basic Configuration > Data & Time
16
www.digiop.com
SECTION 3: SETUP CONFIGURATION
Current Server Time: The Current Server Time field shows the current server time.

Friendly Name: You can enter a friendly name for a video channel. This feature is useful for labeling cameras by their location.
Video Standard Format: Choose either NTSC and PAL, as required.
High Performance Image Processing: the Enable Deinterlace Algorithm configures the encoder to merge even frames with
odd frames to produce a higher quality image.
•
•
•
Hardware platform: Deinterlacing performed by the internal hardware (DSP is not used)
DSP software - Best Quality: Processed by DSP software (approx. 15% of DSP is used)
DSP software- Best Performance: Processed by DSP software (approx. 5% of DSP is used)
What is deinterlace?
When an analog image is transferred to the encoding system of the device, the signal alternates between odd frames
(frames of odd numbered scan lines) and even frames (frames of even numbered scan lines). When deinterlacing is enabled,
the encoder merges the odd frames and the even frames into one frame with both odd and even numbered scan lines.
NOTE
When the DSP load exceeds 80%, an indicator on the VIEW screen turns red. High DSP loads affect the performance of the device.
A high DSP load can be caused by high bitrates in stream data.
Attribute Setting
Brightness, contrast, hue, saturation and sharpness can be adjusted.
•
•
•
•
•
Brightness: Adjustment range is from 0 to 255, the default is 128.
Contrast: Adjustment range is from 0 to 255, the default is 92.
Hue: Adjustment range is from 0 to 255, the default is 128.
Saturation: Adjustment range is from 0 to 255, the default is 128.
Sharpness: Adjustment range is from 0 to 255, the default is 128.
Adjusting the location of image
When the image does not fit on the screen, you can change its position so that it can be viewed effectively. The range is from 1 to
128 increments vertically or horizontally. For NTSC the default is 20; for PAL, 25.
Using PREVIEW button
PREVIEW opens a separate window displaying video from the camera. This feature allows you to make image adjustments in the
Video-In menu without returning to the VIEW screen to observe the effect.

components you want to include, check Enable, and then click Apply. Text is burnt onto the image before compression.
What is Burnt-in Text?
Burnt-in Text allows you to label and time stamp the face of images before compression. This feature may help provide
reliable evidence of events because it is very difficult to alter burnt-in text after an image is compressed.

3.8.3 Tamper Detection
The Tamper Detection module detects camera tampering events such as bagging, de-focusing, moving the camera, etc. It is
determined by detecting large persistent changes in the image from its reference image, and displayed as red blocks. A Tamper
alarm is issued when the specified percentage of the image has changed for the specified period of time. Additional licensing is
required for use of this feature.
To configure burnt-in annotations for your camera or encoder, go to SETUP > VCA > Burnt-in Annotations
IP Camera and Encoder Software Manual
69
SECTION 3: SETUP CONFIGURATION
To see the output of the tamper detection algorithm on the image, Tamper Debug metadata must be enabled on the VCA >

In addition to the Tamper Enable checkbox, the Tamper Detection Settings menu includes three options:
•
•
•
Tampered Duration until Alarm: The length of time that the image must be persistently changed before the alarm is
triggered.
Tampered Screen Area: Percentage area of the image which must be changed for tampering to be triggered.
Suppress alarm on lights on/off: Large changes to the image lighting, such as switching lighting on and off, can cause
false tamper alarms. Enable this option if this condition occurs in the area where the camera is installed. This option will reduce
the sensitivity to real alarms, so it is not recommended for locations where fast light changes are not usually a problem.
False Tamper alarms may occur if the duration and/or screen area are set too low. Adjust the settings so that transient objects close
to the camera do not cause false alarms.
After specifying the tamper detection options for your camera, click Apply.
3.8.4 Burnt-in Annotation
The Burnt-in Annotation setting allows the VCA annotation to be burnt in to the raw video stream. The annotation can include
tracked objects, counters and system messages. The Burnt-in Annotation can be enabled for compressed video streams. To

achieved with modified parameters. The Advanced VCA Settings menu is provided for these adjustments. To configure VCA
advanced settings for your camera or encoder, go to SETUP > VCA > Advanced
Alarm Holdoff Time
The Alarm Holdoff Time defines the time between the successive re-triggering of an alarm generated by the same object. For
instance, if an object in a monitored zone triggered an alarm, then moves out of the zone and back into the zone before the Alarm
Holdoff Time ends, a new alarm is not issued. But, if the object leaves the zone where the alarm was triggered, stays out of the zone
longer than the Alarm Holdoff time, then re-enters the zone, a new alarm is triggered.
72
www.digiop.com
SECTION 3: SETUP CONFIGURATION
Metadata Format
The metadata stream contains a complete description of every moving and stationary target, as well as additional diagnostic data to
enable troubleshooting and optimum configuration. To save network bandwidth, the default metadata stream does not include all
diagnostic data. The metadata stream can contain any selection of the following sub-streams:
•
•
•
Event: Contains information about events (alarms) generated by objects triggering detection rules.
Object: Contains detailed information every object tracked by the VCA algorithm including bounding box, object trail and
object properties.
Counting: Contains the values of all counters that were configured.
Diagnostic Metadata
Blob
Contains the blob-map data. Blob map data can be used to show the output of the object detection stage of the VCA algorithm.
Enable this option for advanced performance analysis. During normal use disable this option to eliminate the increased bandwidth
required to transmit the blob-map.
Tamper Diagnostics
Contains the tamper detection diagnostic data. Tamper detection diagnostic data can be enabled to show the output of the tamper
detection module, which is useful for configuring the tamper detection filter. During normal use disable this option to eliminate the
increased bandwidth required to transmit the tamper detection debug data.
Counting Line Diagnostics
Contains the counting line diagnostic data. Counting line diagnostic data shows the internal operation of the counting line module,
which is useful for determining the optimum width of a counting line.
Stationary Object Hold-on Time
The Stationary Object Hold-on Time specifies the length of time an object will be tracked by the VCA engine after it becomes
stationary. Objects that become stationary are “merged” into the scene after the Stationary Object Hold-on Time. The default
setting is 60 seconds.
Tracking Options
Minimum Tracked Object Size
The Minimum Tracked Object Size is the size in pixels of the smallest object that is considered for tracking. Normally the default size
is most effective. Decreasing the size allows the VCA engine to track smaller objects, but at the expense of noise immunity.

SECTION 3: SETUP CONFIGURATION
Display Options
Both options affect the web browser display and the burnt-in-annotation.
Minimum Alarm Object Display Time
When an alarm is generated, the tracking display marks the object in red. After some time, the object display fades back to yellow.
This setting controls the time the object is displayed in red before fading to yellow. The default value is 2000 milliseconds.
Minimum Object Display Time
When an object is tracked by the VCA engine, it is marked on the tracking display. This setting controls the minimum time an object
is displayed in the tracking display. It is usually set so that objects that are tracked for a very short time are displayed adequately. The
default value is 1000 milliseconds.

SECTION 3: SETUP CONFIGURATION
Border In-fill
When the camera moves, the output frames are shifted to keep the image features aligned to previous frames. This results in areas
for which there is no image data available. The Border In-fill combo box lets you select what happens to those areas of the image.
There are 5 options available:
•
•
•
•
•
Fast Fade: [Default] Newer frames are composited on top of older frames. The old frames are quickly faded to black. This
mode is most suited to PTZ and fixed cameras.
Slow Fade: Newer frames are composited on top of older frames. The old frames are slowly faded to black.
No Fade: Newer frames are composited on top of older frames. The old frames are not changed. This option is suitable for
fixed cameras where there exists minimal movement by people and cars around the edge of the scene.
Fixed: A fixed size black border is present on all sides which blanks out the moving edges of the image. The size of the borders
is equal to the maximum frame shift (see below).
None: Old frames are not displayed. Regions of the output image for which there is no available data are filled with black.
Camera Installation Mode
The camera installation mode has 3 options:
•
•
•
Fixed/PTZ: [Default] The stabilization algorithm parameters are optimized to give the best stabilization results for fixed/PTZ
cameras.
In vehicle/Hand held: The stabilization algorithm parameters are optimized for best stabilization performance for cameras
where the camera fixture experiences continued, large displacements or scene changes. E.g. when used in a moving vehicle.
Low Frequency Stabilization: The Fixed/PTZ and In vehicle/hand held stabilization modes are designed to allow tracking
of intentional camera panning by not stabilizing low frequency movements (< 1Hz). The Low Frequency mode has a lower
cut-off frequency to allow better low frequency stabilization at the expense of worse tracking of intentional movement.
This mode will automatically switch to the higher frequency mode when excessive movement in one direction is detected
to produce better tracking of intentional movement. When the movement stops, the mode reverts to Low Frequency
Stabilization.
Auto Disable
Auto disable provides 2 options:
•
•
Pan/Tilt: This option disables stabilization when excessive pan or tilt motion is detected. Stabilization is reactivated 3 seconds
after panning stops.
Low Detail: When this option is enabled, the algorithm is disabled when a scene with insufficient detail for reliable
stabilization is detected. This prevents the image position ‘hunting’ when there is very little scene detail. For example, when
the camera is pointed at a completely blank wall the stabilized image will jump around slightly because it is locking on to the
random video noise. Similar hunting problems can occur in other situations where a large part of the scene lacks suitable detail
for Stabilizer lock.
IP Camera and Encoder Software Manual
79
SECTION 3: SETUP CONFIGURATION
Performance
Better stabilization performance occurs with greater use of the DSP. The default setting is low.
Maximum Frame Shift
Maximum frame shift is maximum number of pixels the algorithm will shift a frame horizontally and/or vertically from the normal
position. Both horizontal and vertical shifts are configurable in the range 24 .. 256. The default is 128.
