Notes

• Pan/Tilt limitation

The solid PTZ function controls streaming by cropping or reducing a maximum size image.

Thus, the more the camera zooms out, the less area to be panned or tilted, and becomes unavailable at the

WIDE setting.

• Zoom limitation

The solid PTZ function enables you to display an area of 1/16 the maximum image size (Aspect ratio: 1:4), when zoomed in at the TELE setting.

An image cannot be enlarged beyond this.

And the whole area shot in the maximum image size will be displayed if the camera is zoomed out at the

WIDE setting.

The solid PTZ function’s zoom is performed digitally; therefore, some deterioration in image quality may be observed at the TELE setting.

Controlling via the control panel

(Operation common to Area zoom mode and Vector dragging mode)

You can operate the camera direction, zoom, and focus by using the control panel for the monitor image currently displayed.

Pan/Tilt control

Click the arrow button in the direction in which you want to move the camera. Keep it pressed to move the camera continuously.

To return to the home position, click .

Zoom control

Click to zoom out, and click to zoom in.

Zooming continues while the button remains pressed.

Note

The four edges of the image may be dark depending on the zoom position. This is a phenomenon related to the structure of the camera, and does not cause a problem.

Panning and tilting by clicking the monitor image (Area zoom mode only)

Click on the monitor image, and the camera moves so that the clicked portion is positioned at the center of the display.

Panning, tilting and zooming by specifying the area (Area zoom mode only)

Click and hold the left button of the mouse on the monitor image, and drag the mouse diagonally to draw a red frame around the portion you want to enlarge. The camera moves so that framed portion is positioned at the center of the display and is zoomed in.

Note

When the specified area is zoomed in, the center may be shifted or some portion of the image may appear out of the monitor image section. In this case, click the point you want to move to the center or click the arrow button on the camera control panel.

24

Configuration of Main Viewer

Panning and tilting by dragging the screen (Vector dragging mode only)

Notes

• The function may not operate correctly if you use personal firewall software or antivirus software on your computer. In that case, disable the software or select the TCP mode.

• If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later,

Windows Vista, or Windows 7, disable “Windows

Firewall”. For details, see “Configuring Windows

Firewall” in “When using Windows XP Service Pack

2 or later” on page 9, “Configuring Windows

HTTP is the protocol used for reading the usual

Web page.

In an environment capable of reading Web pages, you can watch or listen to video/audio by selecting the TCP port.

Unicast: When Unicast is selected as the communication port, RTP (Real-time Transport

Protocol) is adopted for video/audio communications. Since RTP is the protocol for running video/audio data, the video/audio playback is smoother than when TCP (HTTP) is selected. If a firewall is installed between the camera and the computer, or depending on the network environment, video/audio may not play back properly when Unicast is selected. In this case, select TCP.

Switching TCP/UDP Transmission Mode

27

Multicast: This protocol is selectable when

Multicast streaming (page 48) is On. When

Multicast is selected as the transmission port, RTP

(Real-time Transport Protocol) and UDP multicast techniques are adopted for video/audio transmission. By selecting it, the network transmission load of the camera can be reduced. If a router that does not correspond to a multicast or firewall is installed between the camera and the computer, video/audio may not play back properly.

In this case, select TCP or Unicast.

Using the 802.1X Authentication Function — 802.1X Menu

Supplicant

A supplicant is a device that connects to the authentication server to join the network. This camera serves as a supplicant in the 802.1X network. The supplicant can enter the 802.1X network after appropriate authentication by the authentication server.

Authenticator

An authenticator forwards certificate request data or response data that the supplicant or authentication server issues to the other party. Normally a hub, router or access point serves as an authenticator.

Authentication server

An authentication server has a database of connecting users and verifies if the supplicant is a valid user or not.

It can also be called RADIUS server.

CA (Certificate Authority)

A CA issues and manages certificates of the authentication server (CA certificates) and user certificates. The CA is essential for certificate-based user authentication. Normally a CA is located inside an authentication server.

Note

This camera supports EAP mode in which the supplicant and the server authenticate using the certificate. This mode requires a CA to issue the certificate.

When the following line is displayed on the command prompt, hold down Ctrl and press C.

Display stops.

Reply from 192.168.0.100:bytes=32 time...

You will normally receive a reply after about 5 repetitions of “Request time out”.

4

Wait until the execution of PING finishes, then input the following code.

arp -d 192.168.0.100

Note

If you do not receive a reply, check the following:

– Did you enter the ARP commands within 5 minutes after it was turned on?

If not, turn off the camera and restart the operation.

– Is a NETWORK indicator turned on?

If the indicator goes off, the network connection has a problem. Connect the network correctly.

– Did you enter the IP address previously used for another device?

Assign a new IP address to the camera.

– Do the computer and the camera have the same network address?

If not, set the same network address on the computer and the camera.

Using the SNMP

This unit supports SNMP (Simple Network

Management Protocol). You can read MIB-2 objects using software such as SNMP manager software. This unit also supports the coldStart trap which occurs when the power is turned on or the unit restarts, and the

Authentication failure trap, which informs of any illegal access using SNMP.

Using CGI commands, you can set the community name and access limitation, host to send traps, and some MIB-

2 objects. To allow these settings, you need authentication by the camera administrator.

1. Inquiry Commands

You can check the SNMP Agent settings using the following CGI commands.

<Method>

GET, POST
