This chapter explains how to select the streaming source, transmission mode and saving
options at local computer. It is composed of the following four sections: Stream Options, MPEG4 Media Options, MPEG-4 Protocol Options and MP4 Saving Options. When completed with the
settings on this page, click Save on the page bottom to enable the settings.
Stream Options
The Network Camera supports MPEG-4 and MJPEG dual streams. For more information,
please refer to Video settings on page 36.
MPEG-4 Media Options
Select to stream video or audio data. This works only when the video mode is set to MPEG-4.
MPEG-4 Protocol Options
Depending on your network environment, there are four transmission modes of 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, see RTSP
Streaming on page 34.
18 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
TCP: This protocol guarantees the complete delivery of streaming data and thus provides better video
quality. Nevertheless, the downside with 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 and you don’t need to open specific port
for streaming under some network environments. Users inside a firewall can utilize this protocol to allow
streaming data to come through.
MP4 Saving Options
Users can record the live video as they are watching it by clicking
Start MP4 Recording on

► How does UPnP TM work?
UPnP TM networking technology provides automatic IP configuration and dynamic discovery of devices
added to a network. Services and capabilities offered by networked devices, such as printing and file
sharing, are available among each other without bothersome network configuration. In the case of
Network Cameras, you will see Network Camera shortcuts at My Network Places.
► Enabling UPnP port forwarding allows the Network Camera to open secondary HTTP port on the
router, not HTTP port, meaning that you have to add the secondary HTTP port number behind the
Network Camera’s public address in order to access the Network Camera from the Internet. For
example, when the HTTP port is set to 80 and the secondary HTTP port is set to 8080, refer to the list
below for the Network Camera’s IP address.
From the Internet
http://203�67�124�123:8080
In LAN
http://192�168�4�160 or
http://192�168�4�160:8080
► If the PPPoE settings are incorrectly configured or the Internet access is not working, restore the
Network Camera to factory default; please refer to Restore on page 52 for details. After the Network
Camera is reset to factory default, it is accessible in LAN.
HTTP
Authentication: Depending on your network security requirements, the Network Camera provides two
types of security settings for a HTTP transaction: basic and digest. If basic authentication is selected,
the password is sent in plain text format; there can be potential risks of being intercepted. If digest
authentication is selected, user credentials are encrypted in MD5 algorithm and thus provide better
protection against unauthorized accesses.
HTTP port / Secondary HTTP port: By default, the HTTP port is set to 80 and the secondary HTTP port is
set to 8080. Also, they can be assigned with another port number between 1025 and 65535. If the ports
are incorrectly assigned, the following warning messages are displayed:
26 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions

X
O indicates that the authentication mode is supported by the RTSP player.
X indicates that the authentication mode is NOT supported by the RTSP player.
Access name for stream 1 / Access name for stream 2: The access name is used to differentiate the
streaming source. When using a RTSP player to access the Network Camera, and the video mode is set
to MPEG-4, use the following RTSP URL command to request a transmission of streaming data.
rtsp://<ip address>:<rtsp port>/<access name for stream1 or stream2>
For example, when the access name for stream 1 is set to live.sdp:
1. Launch a RTSP player.
2. Choose File > Open URL. An URL dialog box will pop up.
3. Type the URL command in the text box.
For example:

RTSP port /RTP port for video, audio/ RTCP port for video, audio
The RTSP (Real-Time Streaming Protocol) controls the delivery of streaming media. By default, the port
number is set to 554.
The RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) is used to deliver video and audio data to the clients. By default,
the RTP port for video is set to 5556 and the RTP port for audio is set to 5558.
The RTCP (Real-time Transport Control Protocol) allows the Network Camera to transmit the data by
monitoring Internet traffic volume. By default, the RTCP port for video is set to 5557 and the RTCP port
for audio is set to 5559.
The five ports can be changed between 1025 and 65535. The RTP port must be an even number and
the RTCP port is RTP port number plus one, and thus always be odd. When the RTP port changes, the
RTCP port will change accordingly.
If the RTP ports are incorrectly assigned, the following warning message is displayed:
Multicast settings for stream 1 / Multicast settings for stream 2: Select the Always multicast to enable
multicast for stream 1 or stream 2. Unicast video transmission delivers a stream through point-to-point
transmission; multicast, on the other hand, sends a stream to the multicast group address and allows
multiple clients to acquire the stream by requesting a copy from the Multicast group address.
The five ports can be changed between 1025 and 65535. The multicast RTP port must be an even
number and the multicast RTCP port number is the multicast RTP port number plus one, and thus it is
always be odd. When the multicast RTP port changes, the multicast RTCP port will change accordingly.
If the multicast RTP video ports are incorrectly assigned, the following warning message is displayed:
Multicast TTL [1~255]:The multicast TTL (Time to live) is the value that tells the router the range a packet
can be forwarded.
NOTE
► To utilize the RTSP streaming authentication, make sure that your have set a password for the
Network Camera first; please refer to Security on page 22 for details.

Wireless LAN (IP7134 only)
SSID (Service Set Identifier): It is a name that identifies a wireless network. Access Points and wireless
clients attempting to connect to a specific WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) must use the same
SSID. The default setting is default. Note: The maximum length of SSID is 32 single-byte characters and
SSID can’t be any of “, <, > and space character.
Wireless mode: Clicking on the pull-down menu to select from the following options:
Infrastructure: Make the Network Camera connect to the WLAN via an Access Point. (The default setting)
Ad-Hoc: Make the Network Camera connect directly to a host equipped with a wireless adapter in a peerto-peer environment.
Channel: While in infrastructure mode, the channel is selected automatically to match the channel setting
for the selected Access Point. In Ad-Hoc mode, the channel must be manually set to the same channel
for each wireless adapter. The default channel setting depends on the installed region.
TX rate: This field is for selecting the maximum transmission rate on the network. The default setting
is “auto”, that is the Network Camera will try to connect to the other wireless device with highest
transmitting rate.
Security: Select the data encrypt method. There are four types from low to high: none, WEP, WPA-PSK,
and WPA2-PSK.
1. None: No data encryption.

2. WEP (Wired equivalent Privacy): It allows communication only with other devices with identical WEP
settings.
■ Authentication Mode: Choose one of the following modes. Open is the default setting.
Open – communicates the key across the network.
Shared – allows communication only with other devices with identical WEP settings.
■ Key length: The administrator can select the key length among 64 or 128 bits.
64 bits is the default setting.
■ Key format: Hexadecimal or ASCII. HEX is the default setting.
HEX digits consist of the numbers 0~9 and the letters A-F.
ASCII is a code for representing English letters as numbers from 0-127 except “, <, > and space
characters that are reserved.
■ Network Key: Enter a key in either hexadecimal or ASCII format.
You can select different key length, and acceptable input length is listed as following:
64 bits key length: 10 Hex digits or 5 characters.
128 bites key length: 26 Hex digits or 13 characters.

3. WPA-PSK: Use WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) pre-shared key.
More secure than WEP, the Wi-Fi Alliance developed WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) in 2003 to
address WEP’s weaknesses. Improvements included TKIP, which changes the encryption key for each
data transmission.
■ Algorithm: Choosing one of the following algorithm for WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK modes.
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol): A security protocol used in the IEEE 802.11 wireless networks.
TKIP is a “wrapper” that goes around the existing WEP encryption. TKIP comprises the same
encryption engine and RC4 algorithm defined for WEP. However, the key used for encryption in TKIP
is 128 bits long. This solves the first problem of WEP: a too-short key length. (From Wikipedia)
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard): In cryptography, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES),
also known as Rijndael, is a block cipher adopted as an encryption standard by the U.S. government.
As of 2006, AES is one of the most popular algorithms used in symmetric key cryptography. (From
Wikipedia)
■ Pre-shared Key: Entering a key in ASCII format. The length of the key is 8 ~ 63.
4. WPA2-PSK: Use WPA2 pre-shared key.
The advanced protocol, certified through Wi-Fi Alliance’s WPA2 program, implements the mandatory
elements of 802.11i. In particular, it introduces a new AES-based algorithm, CCMP, that is considered
fully secure. From March 13, 2006, WPA2 certification is mandatory for all new devices wishing to be
certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance as “Wi-Fi CERTIFIED.” (From Wikipedia)

and a higher bit rate for live viewing on web browsers.
■ Mode
The Network Camera offers two choices of video compression standards for real-time viewing: MPEG4 and MJPEG.
38 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
If MPEG-4 mode is selected, it is streamed in RTSP protocol. There are four dependent parameters
provided in MPEG-4 mode for video performance adjustment.
■ Frame size
Select the video size. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth. The frame sizes are
selectable in the following resolutions: 176 x 144, 352 x 240, and 640 x 480.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximal refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for a smoother video
quality.
If the power line frequency is set to 50Hz, the frame rates are selectable at the following rates: 1fps,
2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps and 25fps. If the power line frequency is set to 60Hz, the
frame rates are selectable at the following rates: 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps,
25fps, and 30fps.
■ Intra frame period
Determine how often to plant an I frame. The shorter the duration, the more likely you will get a
better video quality, but at the cost of higher network bandwidth consumption. Select the intra frame
period from the following duration: 1/4 second, 1/2 second, 1 second, 2 seconds, 3 seconds, and 4
seconds.
■ Video quality
A complex scene generally produces 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 performances. The bit rates are selectable at the
following rates: 20Kbps, 30Kbps, 40Kbps, 50Kbps, 64Kbps, 128Kbps, 256Kbps, 512Kbps, 768Kbps,
1Mbps, 1.5Mbps, 2Mbps, 3Mbps, and 4Mbps.
On the other hand, if Fixed quality is selected, all frames are transmitted with the same quality;
bandwidth utilization is therefore unpredictable. The video qualities are selectable at the following
settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, and Excellent.
If JPEG mode is selected, the Network Camera continuously sends JPEG images to the clients,
producing dynamic effects similar to movies. Every single JPEG image transmitted guarantees the
same image quality, which in turn comes at the expense of variable bandwidth usage. And because
the media contents are a combination of JPEG images, no audio data is transmitted to the clients.
■ Frame size
Select the video size. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth. The frame sizes are
selectable in the following resolutions: 176 x 144, 352 x 240, and 640 x 480.

Motion detection
This section explains how to configure the Network Camera to enable motion detection. A total
of three motion detection windows can be configured.
IP7133(TCP-AV)
To enable motion detection, follow the steps below:
1. Click New to add a new motion detection window.
2. In the Window Name text box, enter a descriptive name for the motion detection window.
■ To move and resize the window, drag-drop the window.
■ To delete window, click X at top right of the window.
3. Define the sensitivity to moving objects and the space ratio of all alerted pixels by moving the
Sensitivity and Percentage slider bar.
4. Click Save to enable the settings.
5. Select Enable motion detection to enable this function.
For example:
IP7133(TCP-AV)
The Percentage Indicator will rise or fall depending on the image variation. When motions are
detected by the Network Camera and are judged to exceed the defined threshold, a red bar
rises. Meanwhile, the motion detection window will be outlined in red. Photos or videos can
be captured instantly and configured to send to the remote server (Email, FTP) by utilizing
this feature as a trigger source. For more information on how to plot an event, please refer to
Application on page 43.
User's Manual - 41
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
A green bar indicates that even though motions are detected, the event will not be triggered
because the image variations are still falling under the defined threshold.
Percentage = 30%
NOTE
► How does motion detection work?
A
C
B
D
There are two parameters for setting the motion detection: 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 sense a slight movement while smaller sensitivity settings tend to neglect
it. 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 higher security management, it is suggested to set higher sensitivity
settings and smaller percentage values.

Appendix
URL Commands of the Network Camera
Overview
For some customers who already have their own web site or web control application, Network Camera/
Video server can be easily integrated through convenient URLs. This section specifies the external HTTP
based application programming interface. The HTTP based camera interface provides the functionality
to request a single image, to control camera functions and to get and set internal parameter values. The
image and CGI-requests are handled by the built in Web server.
Style convention
In URL syntax and in descriptions of CGI parameters, a text within angle brackets denotes a content
that is to be replaced with either a value or a string. When replacing the text string also the angle
brackets shall 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, also below.
URL syntax' are written with the “Syntax:" word written in bold face followed by a box with the referred
syntax as seen below. The name of the server is written as <servername>. This 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
returned as HTTP formatted, i.e., starting with the string HTTP is line 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
56 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
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
