Digital Input/Output Terminal
This Network Camera provides a general I/O terminal
block with one digital input and one digital output
device control.
Software Installation
When the hardware installation is complete, users can use the Installation Wizard program
included in the product CDROM to find the location of the Network Camera. There may be
many Network Cameras in the local network. Users can differentiate the Network Cameras
with the serial number. The serial number is printed on the labels on the carton and the
back of the Network Camera body. Please refer to the user’s manual for the Installation
Wizard for more details.
Once the installation is complete, the Administrator should proceed to the next
section "Initial access to the Network Camera" for necessary checks and
configurations.
-4www.4XEM.com
Initial Access to the Network Camera
Check Network Settings
The Network Camera can be connected either before or immediately after software installation
onto the Local Area Network. The Administrator should complete the network settings on the
configuration page, including the correct subnet mask and IP address of the gateway and the
DNS Servers. Ask your network administrator or Internet service provider for the details. If any
setting is entered incorrectly and you cannot proceed with setting up the Network Camera,
restore the factory settings following the steps in the “Troubleshooting” chapter in the
Appendix.
Add Password to Prevent Unauthorized Access
The default
Administrator’s
password is blank and
the Network Camera
initially will not ask for
any password. The
Administrator should
immediately assign a
new password as a
matter of prudent
security practice.
Once the
Administrator’s
password is saved,
the Network Camera will ask for the user’s name and password before each access. The
Administrator can set up a maximum of twenty (20) user accounts. Each user can access the
Network Camera except to perform system configuration. Some critical functions such as
system configuration, user administration, and software upgrades are accessible only by the
Administrator. The user name for the Administrator is permanently assigned as “root”. Once the
password is changed, the browser will display an authentication window to ask for the new
password. Once the password is set, there is no provision to recover the
Administrator’s password.
The only option is to restore to the original factory
default settings.

How to Use
Installing Plug-in
For the initial access to the Network Camera in Windows, the web browser may prompt for
permission to install a new plug-in for the Network Camera. Permission request depends on the
Internet security settings of the user’s PC or notebook. If the highest security level is set, the
computer may
prohibit any
installation and
execution
attempt.
This plug-in has
been
registered
for certificate and
is used to display
the video in the
browser.
may
Users
click
on
to
proceed.
If
the
web browser does
not allow the user
to
continue
to
install, check the
Internet security option and lower the security levels or contact your IT or networking
supervisor for help.

-7www.4XEM.com
Snapshot
Click on Snapshot, web
browser will pop up a new
window to show the
snapshot. Users can point
at the snapshot and click
the right mouse button to
save it.
Client Settings
There are two settings
for the client side:
Media Options to
determine the type of
media to be streamed
and Protocol Options
which allows choice of
connection protocol
between client and
server. There are two
protocol choices to
optimize your usage –
UDP and TCP.
-8www.4XEM.com
The UDP protocol allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However, some packets
may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be obscured. The TCP protocol allows
for less packet loss and produces a more accurate video display. The downside with this
protocol is that the real-time effect is worse than that with the UDP protocol. If no special
need is required, UDP protocol is recommended. Generally speaking, the client’s choice will be
in the order of UDP – TCP.
After the Network Camera is connected successfully, Protocol Option will indicate the selected
protocol. The selected protocol will be recorded in the user's PC and will be used for the next
connection. If the network environment is changed, or the user wants to let the web browser
detect again, manually select the UDP protocol, save, and return HOME to re-connect.
Digital Output
Click on ON, the digital output of the Network Camera will be triggered. Or, clicking on OFF can
let the digital output turn into normal state.

Administrator’s Capability
Fine-tuning for Best Performance
Best performance generally equates to the fastest image refresh rate with the best video
quality, and at the lowest network bandwidth as possible. The three factors, Maximum frame
rate, Constant bit rate, and Fix quality on the Audio and Video Configuration page, correlate
to allow for achieving the best performance possible.
For Viewing by Mobile Phone
Most 3GPP cell phone supports media streaming with MPEG4 video and GSM-AMR audio. Due to
the limitation of the bandwidth for 3GPP, only 176x144 video solution will be supported for cell
phone viewing. Select the Configure for mobile viewing option will change the range of
other related video settings.
- 10 www.4XEM.com
For Best Real-time Video Images
To achieve good real-time visual effect, the network bandwidth should be large enough to allow
a transmission rate of greater than 20 image frames per second. If the broadband network is
over 1 Mbps, set the Fix bit rate to 1000Kbps or 1200Kbps, and set Fix quality at the highest
quality. The maximum frame rate is 30. If your network bandwidth is more than 512Kbps, you
can fix the bit rate according to your bandwidth and set the maximum frame rate to 30 fps. If
the images vary dramatically in your environment, you may want to slow the maximum frame
rate down to 20 fps in order to lower the rate of data transmission. This allows for better video
quality and the human eyes cannot readily detect the differences between 20, 25, or 30 frames
per second. If your network bandwidth is below 512 Kbps, set the Fix bit rate according to
your bandwidth and try to get the best performance by fine-tuning with the Maximum frame
rate. In a slow network, greater frame rate results in blur images. Another work-around is to
choose 160x120 in the Size option for better images. Video quality performance will vary
somewhat due to the number of users viewing on the network, even when the parameters have
initially been finely tuned.
Performance will also suffer due to poor connectivity because of the
network’s burst constraint.
Only Quality Images Will Do
To have the best video quality, you should set Fix quality at Detailed or Excellent and adjust
the Maximum frame rate to match your network’s bandwidth. If your network is slow and you
receive “broken” pictures, go to the TCP protocol in Connection type and choose a more
appropriate mode of transmission. The images may suffer a time delay due to a slower
connection. The delay will also increase with added number of users.
Somewhere Between Real-time and Clear Images
If you have a broadband network, set Fix quality at Normal or better, rather than setting Fix
bit rate. You can also fix the bandwidth according to your actual network speed and adjust the
frame rate.
Start from 30 fps down for best results but not below 15 fps.
If the image
qualities are not improved, select a lower bandwidth setting.

Digital input: Network Camera will send snapshots when the digital input is triggered.
*Note: Please configure Motion Detection first: There are three windows for motion
detection and each needs to be defined. Select the windows which need to be monitored. If
motion detection has not been set up, undefined will be shown instead of the window title. If
this happens, the window can be defined by clicking on Motion detection and a note will show
to direct the user to the configuration page for motion detection setup.
Motion Detection
See Motion Detection (page 25) for set-up instructions.
Send pre-event image(s): The number of pre-snapshots that will be
captured and sent when a condition is triggered.
Send post-event image(s): The number of post-snapshots that will be
captured and sent when a condition is triggered.
Delay second(s) before detecting next motion: Set the time delay
before restarting to check on the triggering condition when the current
condition is triggered.
Sequential: Snapshot interval: second(s): The Network Camera will send snapshots at the
specified intervals to the external server using the method selected below. Remember: This
operation is still subject to the conditions set in the weekly schedule.
Send Snapshot By
Email: This selects the uploading method following the intervals set above. The snapshot
named “prefix-yyyymmdd-hhmmss.jpg” will be attached in the email.
FTP: The snapshots will be uploaded to the external FTP server with the file name defined in
the next option. This can also be used to refresh the captured images stored in the external
web server to build creative homepages.
FTP put snapshots with date and time suffix: This option sets up the snapshot capture

date and time, which can be used to easily differentiate the snapshot file names in the
sequential operation. For instance, “prefix-20030102-030405.jpg” means the JPEG image was
captured in the year 2003, January the 2nd, at 3 o’clock, 4 minute, and 5 second. If this suffix
is omitted, the file named “video.jpg” on the external FTP server will be refreshed at the
specified interval.

System Log
The Network Camera contains a system log where all system related messages for the camera
can be viewed. This system log contains important information about the configuration and
connection of the
camera after
bootup. Remote
logging is also
possible on a Linux
server with syslogd
service running.
Simply enter the IP
Address and Port
Number of the
server to configure
the remote logging
option. Please note:
your remote server
must be RFC 3164
compliant.
Check Enable remote log and input the IP address and port number of the log server to
enable the remote log facility. Current log displays the current system log file. The content of
the log provides useful information about configuration and connection after system boot-up.
