Summary
LILIN’s IRS1204/8 & 1304/8 series feature day/night 2MP HD PTZ dome IR IP cameras. These cameras adopt
the latest compression technologies, which allow four simultaneous 1080p streams (Quadruple Streaming) in
H.264 or MJPEG formats in different resolutions. LILIN’s multiple compression technology allows transmission
of high-quality videos in various resolutions such as 2MP, D1, and CIF to suit both high and low bandwidth
network environments.
Our dome IR IP cameras are equipped with an intelligent video analytics engine that features sound detection
and motion detection, which can send advanced alarm information that is compatible with other software and
hardware. Moreover, the cameras provide two-way audio, SD card recording, mobile device live access, email
notification with JPEG snapshots, and JPEG-to-FTP upload. Other features include progressive-scan, H.264
high-quality compressed video, and ONVIF compliancy.
LILIN’s IRS1204/8 & 1304/8 series also supports LILIN Navigator, a video management application that
maximizes the capabilities of the cameras and provides you with a comprehensive video management solution.

Chapter 1 System Overview
Chapter 1-1 System Requirements
LILIN’s IP cameras adopt compression technology that provide high compression rate and superior video
quality. However, video performance depends highly on CPU power and network bandwidth for video
streaming. The following sections specify the system requirements for using LILIN IP cameras.
Chapter 1-2 Software Requirements
Merit LILIN Universal ActiveX software components or QuickTime are required for a web browser to display
MJPEG or H.264 video. When you first log in to our IP camera, you may see a prompt box as below:
Click Install and follow the onscreen instructions to install necessary components.
Also, if necessary, download Flash Player in order to control the PTZ at

Appendix
DDNS and PPPoE Network Settings
One of the advantages of dopting DDNS and PPPoE services is to save the cost of renting a global IP address.
When you power on a camera with a video server and connect to the Internet with the PPPoE service, the
camera asks your ISP for a dynamic global IP address. This Internet-accessible IP address will be renewed by
the ISP every time you log on the Internet.
Whenever the IP is changed, the camera with the video server will notify the DDNS server of your new IP
address. A remote user who intends to connect to the camera with the video server can enter the domain name
in the web browser. The domain name will be translated to a new IP address to be used by the camera.
Advanced Port Forwarding Technology
Communication port forwarding technology has been widely used to share a global Internet IP to other devices
on the network. The infrastructure of this technology is shown in the below figure, in which the port 80 of the IP
router is forwarded to the device with an IP of 192.168.0.10, and the port 81 of the router is forwarded to the
device with an IP of 192.168.0.11. When a remote PC on the Internet tries to access the port 81, the user is
actually accessing 192.168.0.11, private IP of given by the router.
