To connect a PTZ camera control to the VN-301TV5:
There are two types of installation configurations, daisy-chain or star, depending on the needs of the system.
A daisy-chain loops signals from one unit to the next. There can be a maximum of up to 5000 ft (1524 m) from
the server to the last dome/PTZ in the chain. A star configuration provides multiple communication paths. By
fanning out communications, system reliability increases; a failure on one leg of a star has no affect on the
other units. A star configuration requires the use of a Distribution Line Control, such as Vicon’s V1400X-IDL.
Both types of configurations can be used within a system.
3. Using a twisted-pair cable as defined in the section Twisted-Pair Cable Recommendations, prepare a
4-conductor twisted-pair type cable by stripping the ends back for use.

XX159-06-05 Rev 1208 VN-301TV5 Single-Channel Digital Video Server
Configuring the ViconNet (IP/LAN) Version
The VN-301TV5 is shipped with one CD that contains the ViconNet version 5 software needed to setup your
IP system, including the application setup, the firmware and setup software (VNSetup). Be sure the ViconNet
Workstation meets the minimum requirements, is running the ViconNet application (version 5) (VNSetup) and
has the proper PTZ camera driver. The VNSetup is found on the included CD under software, IP Camera
Setup. Refer to appropriate ViconNet documentation.
Network Considerations
The VN-301TV5 can be connected to any ViconNet network (Version 5 software). Kollector Elite Recorders
and ViconNet Workstations can be used for live viewing and recording of network-streamed video. A network
can be as simple as a single VN-301TV5 connected to a ViconNet Workstation or can be complex with the
addition of several networks interconnected via WAN.
When adding a VN-301TV5 to the ViconNet network, the following items must be considered:
•
•
•
•
The number of cameras on a switch with respect to switch capabilities and system bandwidth mapping.
Bandwidth limitations on ports connected to workstations (using 100 or 1000 Mbps).
Workstation capabilities such as processing speed, disk write speed and display card strength.
Storage size and location types including local Workstation recording, attached SCSI RAID and
integrated NAS/SAN devices.
The default parameters on the IP encoder are:
Factory Defaults
IP address: [10.10.10.1]
Nucleus IP address: [1.1.1.1]
Net Mask address: [255.255.255.0]
Gateway address: [0.0.0.0]
Network Defaults
IP address: [1.1.1.2]
Nucleus IP address: [1.1.1.1]
Net Mask address: [255.255.255.0]
Gateway address: [1.1.1.1]
On first startup, the encoder will attempt to establish connection to the Nucleus with the default address
(1.1.1.1). Connecting it to an active Nucleus is done through the VNSetup utility.
Note: When connecting to ViconNet application version 5, the number of concurrent users viewing video
from the same device cannot exceed 10 users.
Groups and Users Restrictions
ViconNet allows creating Multiple Groups and Users in order to limit the rights to different levels. For more
information on how to create Users and Groups, refer to the latest revision of ViconNet manual XX113.
Although the ViconNet software does not limit the number of Groups and Users that can be created, the VN301TV5 Video Server has Users and Groups limitations. For ViconNet version 5, the video encoder can
support the first 20 Groups (including Administrators and Guests) and the first 100 Users.

Configuring the Network Settings
Note: Before starting, make sure that VNSetup is installed on the configuring PC\workstation. Installation is
done using the CD included.
There are two ways to change the IP server network settings:
• Activating the IP encoder for the first time: via VNSetup application.
• Connecting the IP encoder to an active Nucleus: via ViconNet application (connection to same Nucleus
as the encoder is necessary).
Note: In order to install firmware, the PC and camera must be on the same IP network.
Using the VNSetup Utility
VNSetup consists of several TABs. Each TAB provides different functionalities.
Note: Once the IP Camera Setup is run the first time, a shortcut is placed on the desktop for future use.

2.
Make sure the MAC address and password of the encoder is available. Use MAC Address log
provided.
Verify that the encoder is physically connected to the configuring workstation via the network.
Setup TAB
Note: Since the Setup configuration affects the entire installation process, it MUST be configured first.
In the Setup TAB, 3 fields are defined. The Upgrade files field indicates the installation upgrade directory. The
Log files field allows the user the ability to put a copy of log files in a predefined directory. Password
management selects a directory to save all password files. (By default, the setup files will be installed to
C:\VUG.) In Password file status, the number of passwords stored is displayed. Load a list of passwords is
intended for very large sites only. Connect Technical Support to use this feature.

2. Once the desired unit has been selected, notice the
icon, indicating a password protected unit. In
order to change the selected unit’s settings on the local PC that is running the VNSetup, a unique
password must be entered. The screen will display how many units there are and how many of those
are password protected (locked). A remote unit, as in systems using network routers and VLANS
(virtual LANs), will not display in the Unit selection list. If you want to select a remote unit, manually
enter the IP address in the IP address of remote unit field and click Find remote unit. The remote unit is
added to the list.
Note: This is correct for BIOS from version 1.0.10.86 and later (ViconNet version 3 and higher).

Chapter 8 – Coaxial Cable
Recommendations
CAUTION: Careful selection of proper cable is essential to obtain the best performance from this equipment. Vicon
assumes no responsibility for poor performance when cables other than those recommended, or equivalent, are
installed. In all cases, coaxial cable impedance should be 75 ohms.
Materials
Use only a pure copper center conductor. Do not use a copper-plated steel or aluminum center conductor, as they will result in poor
quality video. Solid-core bare copper conductor is the best type, where flexing and bending will be minimal. If severe bending and flexing
is required for installation, use a stranded center conductor. Never exceed the manufacturer’s minimum bend radius specification. Use
cellular (foam) polyethylene dielectric except where heavy moisture exists. For moisture conditions, use solid polyethylene dielectric
cable with a heavy exterior insulation. The shield must be copper braid providing 95% or better coverage.
Cable Types
The cable types listed below are the most common 75-ohm types used. They vary in size (diameter), dielectric type and net DC
resistance. The larger cable results in a lower DC resistance and better video quality, with increased difficulty in handling and installation.
Let the required picture quality and cable distances provide a guide in choosing the best cable type. For cables other than the approved
Vicon types below, contact the manufacturers listed below. Note that “BC” refers to bare copper and “TC” refers to tinned copper.

Chapter 9 – Twisted-Pair Cable
Recommendations
CAUTION: Careful selection of the proper cable is essential to obtain the best performance from this
equipment. Vicon assumes no responsibility for poor performance when cables other than
those recommended are installed.
Materials
Use a pure copper stranded conductor with or without tin plating to obtain a low DC resistance. Do not use
cable with either steel or an aluminum stranded conductor because these do not transfer signals effectively
for long distances. The preferred insulation and cable jacket is Polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It has better electrical
characteristics than polyethylene and resists flames, sunlight and most solvents, but is more vulnerable to
moisture.
Cable Types
The most commonly used cable types are dual individually shielded, twisted pair in a single jacket. This
configuration is the most convenient for RS-422/ RS485 applications. Single twisted pair is also a suitable
cable.
Choose a Belden cable type by referring to the characteristics and maximum distances listed below. The
maximum distance for the most reliable digital control refers to the distance between the CPU/Keypad and the
Camera Dome Assembly. The characteristics of the cables in the table below should be used as a guideline
when cables other than Belden are used. Materials and construction must follow the guidelines above.
