Overview
VIVOTEK SD83x1E/2E/3E is a series of high performance day/night speed dome network
cameras suitable for professional outdoor surveillance applications. The IP66-rated housing
protects the camera body against rain and dust and the wide temperature range ensures
operation under extreme weather conditions. It is especially suitable for monitoring wide open
indoor/outdoor spaces such as airports, highways, and parking lots where high-level reliability
and precision are always required.
The SD83x1E/2E/3E support high-performance H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG compression
technology and offer extra smooth video quality up to 60 fps @ D1 Resolution. Boasting WDR
Pro technology, the SD83x1E/2E/3E can also cope with challenging lighting conditions and
generate image quality similar to the capabilities of the human eye. With sophisticated pan/tilt
mechanism, the camera provides fast, precise movement with continuous 360-degree pan and
90-degree tilt. Users can easily control the lens position via a mouse or a joystick to track the
object of interest and set up to 128 preset positions for patrolling.
As with all VIVOTEK true day/night cameras, the SD83x1E/2E/3E feature removable IR-cut filter,
maintaining clear images 24 hours a day. The built-in SD/SDHC card slot offers a convenient
and portable storage option to prevent data loss in case of network disconnection. With other
advanced features such as audio detection, 802.3at compliant PoE Plus and 60 fps high quality
video, the SD83x1E/2E/3E are the best choices for the most demanding outdoor surveillance

H.264 / MPEG-4 Protocol Options
H.264/MPEG-4 Protocol Options
Depending on your network environment, there are four transmission modes of H.264 or MPEG-4
streaming:
UDP unicast: This protocol allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However, network
packets may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be broken. Activate UDP connection
when occasions require time-sensitive responses and the video quality is less important. Note that each
unicast client connecting to the server takes up additional bandwidth and the Network Camera allows up
to ten simultaneous accesses.
UDP multicast: This protocol allows multicast-enabled routers to forward network packets to all clients
requesting streaming media. This helps to reduce the network transmission load of the Network Camera
while serving multiple clients at the same time. Note that to utilize this feature, the Network Camera must
be configured to enable multicast streaming at the same time. For more information, please refer to
RTSP Streaming on page 59.
TCP: This protocol guarantees the complete delivery of streaming data and thus provides better video
quality. The downside of this protocol is that its real-time effect is not as good as that of the UDP protocol.
HTTP: This protocol allows the same quality as TCP protocol without needing to open specific ports for
streaming under some network environments. Users inside a firewall can utilize this protocol to allow
streaming data through.

Security > IEEE 802.1x
Advanced Mode
Enable this function if your network environment uses IEEE 802.1x, which is a port-based network
access control. The network devices, intermediary switch/access point/hub, and RADIUS server must
support and have their 802.1x settings enabled.
The 802.1x standard is designed to enhance the security of local area networks, which provides
authentication to network devices (clients) attached to a network port (wired or wireless). If all certificates
between client and server are verified, a point-to-point connection will be enabled; if authentication fails,
access on that port will be prohibited. 802.1x utilizes an existing protocol, the Extensible Authentication
Protocol (EAP), to facilitate communication.
■ The components of a protected network with 802.1x authentication:
Supplicant
(Network Camera)
Authenticator
(Network Switch)
Authentication Server
(RADIUS Server)
1. Supplicant: A client end user (camera), which requests authentication.
2. Authenticator (an access point or a switch): A “go between” which restricts unauthorized end users
from communicating with the authentication server.
3. Authentication server (usually a RADIUS server): Checks the client certificate and decides whether to
accept the end user’s access request.
■ VIVOTEK Network Cameras support two types of EAP methods to perform authentication: EAP-PEAP
and EAP-TLS.
Please follow the steps below to enable 802.1x settings:
1. Before connecting the Network Camera to the protected network with 802.1x, please apply a digital
certificate from a Certificate Authority (i.e., network administrator of your company) which can be
validated by a RADIUS server.
2. Connect the Network Camera to a PC or notebook outside of the protected LAN. Open the
configuration page of the Network Camera as shown below. Select EAP-PEAP or EAP-TLS as the
EAP method. In the following blanks, enter your ID and password issued by the CA, then upload
related certificate(s).
User's Manual - 49
VIVOTEK
3. When all settings are complete, move the Network Camera to the protected LAN by connecting it to an
802.1x enabled switch. The devices will then start the authentication automatically.
NOTE:
► Below is the authentication process for 802.1x:
1. The Certificate Authority (CA) provides the required signed certificates to the Network
Camera (the supplicant) and the RADIUS Server (the authentication server).
2. A Network Camera requests access to the protected LAN using 802.1X via a switch (the
authenticator). The client offers its identity and client certificate, which is then forwarded
by the switch to the RADIUS Server, which uses an algorithm to authenticate the Network
Camera and returns an acceptance or rejection back to the switch.
3. The switch also forwards the RADIUS Server’s certificate to the Network Camera.
4. Assuming all certificates are validated, the switch then changes the Network Camera’s state
to authorized and is allowed access to the protected network via a pre-configured port.

Network > QoS (Quality of Service)
Advanced Mode
Quality of Service refers to a resource reservation control mechanism, which guarantees a certain quality
to different services on the network. Quality of service guarantees are important if the network capacity
is insufficient, especially for real-time streaming multimedia applications. Quality can be defined as, for
instance, a maintained level of bit rate, low latency, no packet dropping, etc.
The following are the main benefits of a QoS-aware network:
■ The ability to prioritize traffic and guarantee a certain level of performance to the data flow.
■ The ability to control the amount of bandwidth each application may use, and thus provide higher
reliability and stability on the network.
Requirements for QoS
To utilize QoS in a network environment, the following requirements must be met:
■ All network switches and routers in the network must include support for QoS.
■ The network video devices used in the network must be QoS-enabled.
QoS models
CoS (the VLAN 802.1p model)
IEEE802.1p defines a QoS model at OSI Layer 2 (Data Link Layer), which is called CoS, Class of
Service. It adds a 3-bit value to the VLAN MAC header, which indicates the frame priority level from 0
(lowest) to 7 (highest). The priority is set up on the network switches, which then use different queuing
disciplines to forward the packets.
Below is the setting column for CoS. Enter the VLAN ID of your switch (0~4095) and choose the priority
for each application (0~7).
If you assign Video the highest level, the switch will handle video packets first.
NOTE:
► A VLAN Switch (802.1p) is required. Web browsing may fail if the CoS setting is incorrect.
► Class of Service technologies do not guarantee a level of service in terms of bandwidth and delivery
time; they offer a “best-effort.” Users can think of CoS as “coarsely-grained” traffic control and QoS as
“finely-grained” traffic control.
► Although CoS is simple to manage, it lacks scalability and does not offer end-to-end guarantees since
it is based on L2 protocol.
62 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
QoS/DSCP (the DiffServ model)
DSCP-ECN defines QoS at Layer 3 (Network Layer). The Differentiated Services (DiffServ) model is
based on packet marking and router queuing disciplines. The marking is done by adding a field to the
IP header, called the DSCP (Differentiated Services Codepoint). This is a 6-bit field that provides 64
different class IDs. It gives an indication of how a given packet is to be forwarded, known as the Per Hop
Behavior (PHB). The PHB describes a particular service level in terms of bandwidth, queueing theory,
and dropping (discarding the packet) decisions. Routers at each network node classify packets according
to their DSCP value and give them a particular forwarding treatment; for example, how much bandwidth
to reserve for it.
Below are the setting options of DSCP (DiffServ Codepoint). Specify the DSCP value for each application
(0~63).

■ Auto Mode:
- Back Light Compensation (only available with the Auto mode): This option will automatically adjust the
display of images according to the brightness of an object which is at the center of a camera’s focus.
If you select the Auto mode, the Exposure time and Iris adjustment will be not configurable since the
sensor library will automatically adjust the value according to the ambient light.
■ Shutter Priority:
- Exposure time: The Exposure time setting allows tuning for more or less light into the lens. The
configurable value ranges from 1/10000 to the longest 1/1 second. An optimum shutter speed should
be maintained as long as the light level of the scene permits.
■ Iris Priority:
- Iris adjustment: The value is measured in the F-number as the ratio of the focal length to the lens
diameter. Iris size is inversely proportional to the F-number; therefore, the smaller the F-number, the
greater is the exposure ratio. Smaller F-number (larger exposure ratio, largest size of lens aperture

IR cut filter
With a removable IR-cut filter, this Network Camera can automatically remove the filter to let IR light into
the sensor during low light conditions.
■ Auto mode
The Network Camera automatically removes the filter by judging the level of ambient light where its
sensitivity can be altered.
■ Day mode
In day mode, the Network Camera switches on the IR cut filter at all times to block infrared light from
reaching the sensor so that the colors will not be distorted.
■ Night mode
In the night mode, the Network Camera switches off its IR cut filter at all times for the sensor to capture
infrared light, thus helping to improve low light sensitivity.
■ Schedule mode
The Network Camera switches between day mode and night mode based on a specified schedule.
Enter the start and end time for day mode. Note that the time format is [hh:mm] and is expressed in
24-hour clock time. By default, the start and end time of day mode are set to 07:00 and 18:00.

This Network Camera offers real-time H.264, MPEG-4 and MJEPG compression standards (Triple
Codec) for real-time viewing.
If H.264 / MPEG-4 mode is selected, the video is streamed via RTSP protocol. There are four parameters
for you to adjust the video performance:
■ Frame size
You can set up different video resolutions for different viewing devices. For example, set a smaller
frame size and lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones and a larger video size and a higher
bit rate for live viewing on web browsers. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximum refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for smoother video
quality.
■ Intra frame period
Determine how often to plant an I frame. The shorter the duration, the more likely you will get better
video quality, but at the cost of higher network bandwidth consumption. Select the intra frame
period from the following durations: 1/4 second, 1/2 second, 1 second, 2 seconds, 3 seconds, and 4
seconds.
■ Video quality
A complex scene generally produces a larger file size, meaning that higher bandwidth will be needed
for data transmission. Therefore, if Constant bit rate is selected, the bandwidth utilization is fixed at
a selected level, resulting in mutable video quality performance. The bit rates are selectable at the
following rates: 20Kbps, 30Kbps, 40Kbps, 50Kbps, 64Kbps, 128Kbps, 256Kbps, 512Kbps, 768Kbps,
1Mbps, 2Mbps, 3Mbps, 4Mbps, 6Mbps, and 8Mbps. You can also select Customize and manually
enter a value.
On the other hand, if Fixed quality is selected, all frames are transmitted with the same quality;
bandwidth utilization is therefore unpredictable. The video quality can be adjusted to the following
settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, and Excellent. You can also select Customize and
manually enter a value.

If JPEG mode is selected, the Network Camera continuously sends JPEG images to the client, producing
a moving effect similar to a filmstrip. Every single JPEG image transmitted guarantees the same
image quality, which in turn comes at the expense of variable bandwidth usage. Because the media
contents are a combination of JPEG images, no audio data is transmitted to the client. There are three
parameters provided in MJPEG mode to control the video performance:
■ Frame size
You can set up different video resolution for different viewing devices. For example, set a smaller
frame size and lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones and a larger video size and a higher
bit rate for live viewing on web browsers. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximum refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for smoother video
quality.

■ Video quality
The video quality can be adjusted to the following settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, and
Excellent. You can also select Customize and manually enter a value.
NOTE:
•
•
Video quality and fixed quality refer to the compression rate, therefore, a lower value produces
higher quality.
Converting high-quality video may significantly increase the CPU load, and you may encounter
streaming disconnections or video loss while capturing a complicated scene. In the event of
occurrence, we suggest you customize to a lower video resolution or reduce the frame rate to obtain
smooth video.

D
There are two motion detection parameters: Sensitivity and Percentage. In the illustration above,
frame A and frame B are two sequential images. Pixel differences between the two frames are
detected and highlighted in gray (frame C) and will be compared with the sensitivity setting.
Sensitivity is a value that expresses the sensitivity to moving objects. Higher sensitivity settings
are expected to detect slight movements while smaller sensitivity settings will neglect them. When
the sensitivity is set to 70%, the Network Camera defines the pixels in the purple areas as “alerted
pixels” (frame D).
Percentage is a value that expresses the proportion of “alerted pixels” to all pixels in the motion
detection window. In this case, 50% of pixels are identified as “alerted pixels”. When the percentage
is set to 30%, the motions are judged to exceed the defined threshold; therefore, the motion window
will be outlined in red.
For applications that require a high level of security management, it is suggested to use higher
sensitivity settings and smaller percentage values.

Applications > Audio detection
Advanced Mode
Audio detection, along with video motion detection, is applicable in the following scenarios:
1. Detection of activities not covered by camea view, e.g., a loud input by gunshots or breaking
a door or window.
2. A usually noisy environment, such as a factory, suddently becomes quiet due to a breakdown
of machines.
3. A PTZ camera can be directed to turn to a preset point by the occurrence of audio events.
4. Dark environments where video motion detection may not function well.
The red circles in the diagram above indicate where the audio alarms can be triggered when
breaching or falling below the preset threshold.
How to configure Audio detection:
1. Once the Audio detection window is opened, the current sound input will be interactively
indicated by a fluctuating yellow wave diagram.
2. Use a mouse click to drag the Alarm level tab to a preferred location on the slide bar.
3. Select the "Enable audio detection" checkbox and click Save to enable the feature.
NOTE:
1. Note that the numbers (0~100) on the side of wave diagram do not represent decibel (dB).
A sound intensity level has already been mapped to preset values. You can, however, use
the real-world inputs at your installation site as they are shown on the wave diagram to
configure an alarm level.
2. To configure this feature, you must not mute the audio in Configuration -> Media -> Audio.
The default of the camera can be muted due to the lack of an internal microphone. An
external microphone is separately provided by users.
3. Refer to page 81 for Audio input adjustment such as Audio input gain. If audio settings
have been tuned, you should reconfigure the audio alarm setting.

•
If the Alarm level and the received volume are set within a range of 20% on the wave
diagram, frequent alarms will be triggered. It is therefore recommended to set the Alarm
level farther apart from the detected sound level.
To configure and enable this feature, you must not configure video stream #1 into
Motion JPEG. If an external microphone input is connected and recording of audio stream
is preferred, audio stream is transmitted between camera and viewer/recording station
along with stream #1.

Appendix
URL Commands for the Network Camera
1. Overview
For some customers who already have their own web site or web control application, the Network
Camera/Video Server can be easily integrated through URL syntax. This section specifies the external
HTTP-based application programming interface. The HTTP-based camera interface provides the
functionality to request a single image, control camera functions (PTZ, output relay etc.), and get and set
internal parameter values. The image and CGI-requests are handled by the built-in Web server.
2. Style Convention
In URL syntax and in descriptions of CGI parameters, text within angle brackets denotes content that
is to be replaced with either a value or a string. When replacing the text string, the angle brackets
should also be replaced. An example of this is the description of the name for the server, denoted with
<servername> in the URL syntax description below, that is replaced with the string myserver in the URL
syntax example further down in the page.
URL syntax is denoted with the word "Syntax:" written in bold face followed by a box with the referenced
syntax as shown below. For example, name of the server is written as <servername> and is intended to
be replaced with the name of the actual server. This can either be a name, e.g., "mywebcam" or "thecam.
adomain.net" or the associated IP number for the server, e.g., 192.168.0.220.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg
Description of returned data is written with "Return:" in bold face followed by the returned data in a box. All data is
returned in HTTP format, i.e., each line is separated with a Carriage Return and Line Feed (CRLF) printed as \r\n.
Return:
HTTP/1.0 <HTTP code> <HTTP text>\r\n
URL syntax examples are written with "Example:" in bold face followed by a short description and a light grey box
with the example.
Example: request a single snapshot image
http://mywebserver/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg
User's Manual - 111
VIVOTEK
3. General CGI URL Syntax and Parameters
CGI parameters are written in lower-case and as one word without any underscores or other separators.
When the CGI request includes internal camera parameters, these parameters must be written exactly as
they are named in the camera or video server. The CGIs are organized in functionally-related directories
under the cgi-bin directory. The file extension .cgi is required.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/<subdir>[/<subdir>...]/<cgi>.<ext>
[?<parameter>=<value>[&<parameter>=<value>...]]
Example: Set digital output #1 to active
http://mywebserver/cgi-bin/dido/setdo.cgi?do1=1
