Step 8
An electrical short in the back box may occur if the metal BNC connector on the video coaxial cable
is not completely covered by the protective boot.
Perform one of the following options:
•
View video using both analog and IP connections—Connect the video coaxial cable from the back
box circuit board to the coaxial cable coming in from the outside. Make sure that the BNC connector
is completely covered by the protective boot.
•
View video using only the IP connection—Make sure that the BNC connector is completely covered
by the protective boot and is out of the way of the back box door.
Before closing the interconnect door, ensure that no wires are between the top of the heat sink standoff
and the back box (see Figure 1-8).
Both the video coaxial cable and the Ethernet cable need to be routed carefully to ensure clearance for
the heat sink standoff.

Input power for the dome is 24 VAC or 24 VDC. Using 24 VAC input power, power consumption is 23
VA per dome for indoor models and 73 VA for outdoor models. Using 24 VDC input power, power
consumption is 0.7 A (15 W) for indoor models and 3 A (65 W) for outdoor models.
Use a 24 VAC transformer with the following minimum VA:
•
40 VA per dome—For indoor models (without heater)
•
100 VA per dome—For outdoor models (with heater)
Installing the Dome Drive
Step 1
If you will view video using both analog and IP connections, set the DIP switches on the top of the dome
drive (see Figure 1-9).
For DIP switch settings, see the labels located on the top of the dome drive, or see the “Switch Settings”
section on page 1-11.
If you will view video using the IP connection, you do not need to set the DIP switches.

Operation
This chapter describes how to operate the Cisco 2900 Series IP Dome camera.
Before you begin, install the dome as described in Chapter 1, “Installation.” After installed, apply power
to the system. The system will complete a configuration sequence.
This chapter includes these topics:
•
System Requirements, page 2-1
•
Accessing the IP Device, page 2-2
•
Live Video Page, page 2-2
•
Settings Page, page 2-7
•
System Tab, page 2-7
•
Network Tab, page 2-10
•
Camera Configuration Tab, page 2-17
•
A/V Streams Tab, page 2-23
•
Users Tab, page 2-37
•

System Requirements
Network and processor bandwidth limitations might cause the video stream to pause or appear pixilated
when additional Web-interface users connect to the camera. Decrease the images per second (ips),
resolution, compression, or bit rate settings of the Web interface video streams to compensate for
network/processor limitations.
The following system requirements are needed to use a web browser with the camera:
•
Processor—Intel Core 2 Duo microprocessor, 2.6 GHz
•
Operating system—Microsoft Windows XP
•
Memory—2 GB RAM
•
Network interface card—100 megabits or greater
•
Monitor—Minimum of 1024 x 768 resolution, 16- or 32-bit pixel color resolution
•
Web browser—Internet Explorer 8.0 or later
•
Media player—QuickTime 7.6.5 for Windows XP

Image Rate and Bit Rate, page 2-26
Primary Stream and Secondary Stream
The primary stream and secondary stream are video streams that include compression, resolution, image
rate, and bit rate settings. The streams can be set up using a video preset setting, or they can be
customized using the video configuration settings.
A video preset is a predefined video configuration that offers a good balance between video performance
and bandwidth usage. For easy stream configuration, use the Video Preset page located in the drop-down
menu of the A/V Streams Tab.
To customize the Primary Stream or Secondary Stream use the Video Configuration page located in the
drop-down menu of the A/V Streams Tab. Configurable settings include the stream name, compression
standard, resolution setting, image rate, and bit rate. The default names for the streams are Primary
Stream and Secondary Stream; however, if these stream names have been changed, the new names will
replace the default names (Primary Stream and Secondary Stream) on the Select Stream page.
QuickView Stream
The QuickView stream is a predefined JPEG video stream with VGA resolution. This low resolution,
low frame rate stream is displayed when the Imaging Tab settings are configured. This allows users to
view changes to exposure, white balance, and tone map settings as they are configured and before the
settings are saved.
The QuickView Stream is also ideal for users who are connected to a network with processor bandwidth
limitations that might cause a high resolution, high frame rate video stream to pause or appear pixilated.
The aspect ratio of the QuickView Stream mirrors that of the Primary Stream. The only stream setting
that is selectable is the framerate: 2 ips or 1 ips.
Unicast
A unicast transmission sends a separate video stream to each user that is requesting data. Although
multiple users might request the same data from the camera at the same time, duplicate video streams
are transmitted to each user. Every unicast user that connects to the camera consumes additional
processing power, which limits the number of simultaneous users who can access the camera.
The camera supports a maximum of 20 simultaneous users.

Chapter 2
Operation
Live Video Page
Multicast
A multicast transmission sends data to multiple users at the same time using one transmission stream.
Each multicast user that connects to the camera consumes no additional processing power; therefore,
multicast video streams can be sent to an unlimited number of simultaneous users.
Taking a Snapshot
Step 1
Click the “Take a Snapshot” button.
The File Download dialog box opens, and the following message appears: “Do you want to open or save
this file?”
Step 2
Select one of the following options:
•
Open—Your computer’s photo editing program opens and displays the screen image. This function
is available only when using Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0 (or later).
•
Save—The image is saved as a JPEG file on your computer.
•
Cancel—The captured image is not saved or displayed and the dialog box closes.
Note
If you are using JPEG, the captured image will be the size of the largest MJPEG stream. If you
are using MPEG-4 or H.264, the image is captured using the QuickView Stream, which is
approximately VGA resolution.
Displaying Video in the Multiscreen View
Devices connected to the same virtual local area network (VLAN) as the device to which you are logged
on can be displayed in a multiscreen view. Use the 4-camera, 9-camera, or 16-camera view mode buttons
to display video from multiple devices simultaneously.
The device you are logged on to is the default display for the upper-left video pane in the multiscreen
view. The device name is displayed in the gray area near the top of the page.
Note
Using Primary and Secondary streams in multiscreen view will limit the available processing power and
create responsiveness issues for the device and PC. If you experience latency issues, set the device
streams to QuickView. Available processing power is determined by the settings for compression
standards, resolution, image rate, bit rate, and analytic configuration.
To select video to display in the individual multiscreen panes:
Step 1
Click the desired View Mode display button.
Step 2
Click the Show Device List button above the selected video pane.

A/V Streams Tab
Use the A/V Streams tab to configure the video and audio streams for the camera. The A/V Streams tab
includes a Video Presets page, a Video Configuration page, and an Audio Configuration page.
Video Presets
The Video Preset page includes three fully-configured video presets, which include primary and
secondary video stream settings for easy setup. These presets may also be used as a starting point for a
custom video configuration. These preset configurations vary depending on camera model.
Video Configuration
The Video Configuration page allows you to customize the compression, resolution, image rate, and bit
rate of the video streams. The default names for the streams are Primary Stream and Secondary Stream.
Although each stream can be configured independently, the settings of one stream can limit the options
available to the other stream, depending on the processing power used.
Always configure the primary stream before the secondary stream. The primary stream should always
be the most resource-intensive of the streams.
Audio Configuration
The Audio Configuration page allows you to setup the internal audio device or an external audio device.
The default setting for Audio is disabled, which means that no audio is transmitted from the camera.
When enabled, audio is transmitted from the camera to the PC. Based on your system configuration,
images and audio may not be synchronized.
Note
Improper use of audio/visual recording equipment may subject you to civil and criminal penalties.
Applicable laws regarding the use of such capabilities vary between jurisdictions and may require,
among other things, express written consent from the recorded subjects. You are solely responsible for
insuring strict compliance with such laws and for strict adherence to any/all rights of privacy and
personalty.

Step 3
Click both of the Clear buttons to delete the primary and secondary streams settings.
Step 4
Optional: In the Primary Stream section, type a user-friendly name in the Name box (2 to 64 characters).
A user-friendly name makes it easier to recognize the stream (for example, Live and Recording).
Step 5
Note
Configure the Compression Standard, Resolution, Image Rate, and Bit Rate settings for the primary
stream.
The compression standard, resolution, image rate, and bit rate settings are dependent on each other. You
must first decide the priority setting before you configure a stream. For example, if you want an image
rate of 30 ips, set the image rate before you configure the other settings.
Step 6
Repeat Step 3 through Step 5 for the Secondary stream.
Step 7
Click the Save button to save the settings, or click the Reset button to clear all of the information you
entered without saving it.

Compression Standards
•
JPEG—A commonly used video compression scheme, also known as MJPEG. JPEG has the least
impact on the camera’s processor, but it requires the most bandwidth.
•
MPEG-4—A full-motion video standard used by most DVD recorders. MPEG-4 is less
processor-intensive than JPEG, but it uses more bandwidth than H.264.
•
H.264—A new version of MPEG-4 compression used in high-definition video players such as
Blu-ray and HD-DVD. H.264 is the most processor-intensive, but it requires the least amount of
bandwidth.
Image Rate and Bit Rate
The following tables show supported primary and secondary video stream combinations when using
H.264 or MJPAG compression on the primary stream:
Note
•
Table 2-3 on page 2-27—Supported video stream combinations when using H.264 compression on
the primary stream (NTSC)
•
Table 2-4 on page 2-30—Supported video stream combinations when using MJPEG compression on
the primary stream (NTSC)
•
Table 2-5 on page 2-32—Supported video stream combinations when using H.264 compression on
the primary stream (PAL)
•
Table 2-6 on page 2-34—Supported video stream combinations when using MJPEG compression on
the primary stream (PAL)
When you change any of the video stream configuration settings, the camera automatically adjusts the
bit rate. If you manually reduce the bit rate lower than the camera's automatic setting, the image quality
might be reduced and the stream selection options might be limited

I-Frame Interval
The I-frame interval configures the number of partial frames that occur between full frames in the video
stream. For example, in a scene where a door opens and a person walks through, only the movements of
the door and the person are stored by the video encoder. The stationary background that occurs in the
previous partial frames is not encoded, because no changes occurred in that part of the scene. The
stationary background is only encoded in the full frames. Partial frames improve video compression rates
by reducing the size of the video. As the I-frame interval increases, the number of partial frames
increases between full frames. Higher values are only recommended on networks with high reliability.
This setting is only available with H.264 and MPEG-4 compression standards.
Quality of Service for Differentiated Services Code Point
Quality of Service (QoS) for Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) is a code that allows the
network to prioritize the transmission of different types of data. This setting is only available with H.264
and MPEG-4 compression standards.
Note
•
If you are not familiar with DSCP, contact your network administrator before changing this setting.
•
Your network must be configured to use QoS. If you are unsure if your network is QoS-aware,
contact your network administrator.
Advanced Sharpening
The Advanced Sharpening setting enhances picture detail by sharpening the edges in the picture. When
this mode is enabled, there is a trade-off between image quality and the resources required for processing
power. The maximum camera resolution and image rate will not be available, but the edges of the image
seem sharper. Only use this setting if you cannot achieve the sharpness level you want by adjusting the
digital processing settings of the camera. The default setting for Advanced Sharpening is Off.
Selecting the Audio Configuration Settings
Note
Audio is not supported when using the camera with Cisco Video Surveillance Manager (VSM).

General Settings
Use the General Settings page to set the public user access level. This access level is a predefined set of
user permissions that allow the camera to be accessed without logging on. The permission levels are
Operator, Viewer, and Disabled.
The General Settings page also allows you to change the way the camera manages users and groups
settings. These settings can be managed on a camera-to-camera basis or by using a centralized server to
apply changes to multiple cameras. General settings for users and groups include Standalone, Node, and
Mixed settings. An example of a Mixed management mode would be using a Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol (LDAP) server like Microsoft® Active Directory for authentication.
Users
User accounts are created to limit the permissions of individuals who are logged onto the camera. The
Users page also includes four predefined access level settings that include Administrator, Manager,
Operator, and Viewer permissions.

Events Tab
Events are activated by user-defined event sources that tell the device how to react when an event occurs.
Event handlers are the actions that the device takes when an event occurs. For example, a system source
can be configured to send e-mail to an operator if the system shuts-down and restarts.
Sources
The camera supports one physical input alarm event source, a system event source, and a timer event
source. The alarm event source is the camera input for an external signaling device, such as a door
contact or motion detector. The system event source is activated when the camera restarts. The timer
event source is a user-defined event that activates an event after a specified amount of time.
Handlers
The device supports a Send Email handler, and an Upload JPEG to FTP Server handlers. The Send Email
handler sends an e-mail to a defined e-mail address when an event is activated.The Upload JPEG to FTP
Server handler saves a JPEG of the activated event to a defined FTP server.
