Introduction
Ocularis Web User Guide
Introduction
Ocularis Media Server
Ocularis Media Server (formerly called 'Ocularis-X') provides full framerate video from multiple megapixel cameras over
limited bandwidth connections. Ocularis Media Server brings the experience of desktop video surveillance to browsers
and mobile devices. With the increasing popularity of bandwidth intensive megapixel cameras, web and mobile users
face the need to compromise either on the number of cameras viewed (often limited to a single camera), the quality of
the video or the smoothness of the video delivered. This can result in choppy, low framerate live viewing and playback.
Ocularis Media Server, an add-on to Ocularis, delivers up to sixteen HD video streams simultaneously using OnSSI’s
HDIS (High Definition Interactive Streaming) technology. Frame rates up to 30 frames per second can be delivered over
limited bandwidth networks such as 3G and 4G networks.
Ocularis Media Server extends the look and feel of OnSSI’s award winning Ocularis Client to web browsers and mobile
devices. It allows security personnel in the field to perform live monitoring and synchronized playback of multiple
megapixel cameras through a standard web browser or mobile device.
Ocularis Media Server Components
Components of Ocularis Media Server include a server component and client components. The Ocularis Media Server
component typically resides on a stand alone server and is used to communicate with an installation of Ocularis Base.
The client components are used to view video. Client components include Ocularis Web and Ocularis Mobile.
Ocularis Web (formerly called ‘Ocularis–X Client') is used to view video using a laptop or PC and a web browser.
Ocularis Mobile is used to view video on an Apple® iPad®.
Ocularis Media Server works with Ocularis Base versions 3.0 or later.
Ocularis Web works with a standard web browser. It is run by accessing a website on the Ocularis Media Server and
logging into Ocularis Base.
Ocularis Base authenticates user credentials and permissions and passes the appropriate video streams from the
recorder(s) to the Ocularis Media Server to be transcoded and sent to the requesting client (either Ocularis Web or
Ocularis Mobile). The device using the client may be inside or outside the local area network.
Specifications
Ocularis Web

•
Microsoft Internet Explorer version 8 and higher
•
Mozilla Firefox version 14.0 and higher
•
Google Chrome version 21.0 and higher
•

http://<Ocularis_Media_Server_IP_Address>/ocularis-web/client
or
https://<Ocularis_Media_Server_IP_Address>/ocularis-web/client
Where:
<Ocularis__Media_Server_IP_Address> is the IP Address of the Ocularis Media Server.
Your system administrator will let you know if you should use 'http' or 'https'.
Logging In to Ocularis Web
Prior to accessing Ocularis Web, you are presented with a log in screen. Enter your login information as follows:
User Name
A user account is required to gain access to system video. This account
is your Ocularis account and may be used to access video via Ocularis
Web, Ocularis Client or Ocularis Mobile.

Configuring Ocularis Web
Ocularis Web User Guide
Configuring Ocularis Web
Ocularis Web needs no configuration to start using the product! The views you use with Ocularis Client are shared with
Ocularis Web. These are the Base Views. Simply use the Views menu to see a list of views and select one to view video.
(see To Display a View). A View is the fundamental display when observing video from a client application such as
Ocularis Web. The screen is divided into one or more panes, each of which may display a different camera stream.
Ocularis Media Server supports up to sixteen HD video streams simultaneously at their original frame rate (up to 30
FPS). Base Views are listed in alphabetical order.
The Base Views listed in the Views menu may not display all the views attributed to the user. Ocularis Web does not
support some features that may be included in an Ocularis Base view. These include: web pages, blank screens, push
panes, hot spots or carousels. If a 1 x 1 view is configured in Ocularis Base with one of these non-supported built-in
content panes, the view will not appear in the Ocularis Web list of Base Views. If, however, a multiple pane view contains
1 or more cameras as well as a non-supported built-in content pane, the view will appear. When selected, the
non-supported pane will remain blank.
Similarly, neither client (Ocularis Web nor Ocularis Mobile) supports asymmetrical views. The only views available in
these clients are:
•
1x1
or 1 streams
•
2x2
or 4 streams
•
3x3
or 9 streams
•
4x4
or 16 streams
If, for instance, Ocularis Base has a 1 + 7 view of 8 cameras, this view will not appear in the Base Views list on an
Ocularis Media Server client.
Note for the admin account: the hierarchy of views in the Base Views list may not display the same in Ocularis Web as
it does in Ocularis Client. There may be duplicate views listed for this user account. As you know, the administrator
account can see all views for all user groups. If views with the same name are shared across groups, these views will
appear in duplicate only for the user admin.
Local Views in Ocularis Web may be configured by the user. These are stored on the computer which is used to create
the view. When you configure a view of cameras, the browser on the local machine saves the configuration information
for your user account. Therefore, if you were to go to another computer and log in using Ocularis Web, that local
computer would need to be reconfigured. Similarly, if you stayed on the same PC but launched a different browser and
logged in with Ocularis Web, configuration will also need to be redone. Lastly, if you clear the browser’s cache,
configuration changes are lost and must be redone upon next login.
Local Views appear in the order in which they were created.

displayed in the list on the Cameras tab to the desired pane.
Drag and drop to populate a pane with a camera stream
1.
Continue to drag and drop cameras for each available pane. If you change your mind about which camera
should populate which pane, simply drag a new camera and drop it on top of the existing camera in the pane.
2.
When complete, enter a name for the view in the View name field. The name is displayed in the Views menu for
you to access later. View names should be created so that you can easily identify the cameras it includes. View
names are not case sensitive and may include spaces.
3.
Click Save.
4.
You may continue to create additional views. When finished, click Close.
Note: Remember that local views are saved with the browser settings on the local machine. If you open another
manufacturer’s browser, move to another PC, or clear the browser’s cache, you will need to reconfigure local views from
scratch.

Each pane displays a date and time stamp for the frame in view. If a frame exists for the requested time, the display will
appear in white text. If the stream does not have a frame for the requested time, the text appears in red text.
Browse mode in Ocularis Web displays all cameras synchronously. Actions performed with the playback controls apply
to all visible video panes. For instance, playing video from 6:00 a.m. will result in all panes playing video from 6:00 a.m.
(assuming it was recorded in the first place).

Viewing Recorded Video
Ocularis Web User Guide
The time displayed in Ocularis Web reflects the time on the Ocularis Media Server. This time could be different (e.g.
different time zone) from the Ocularis Web user, the recorder or even the Ocularis Base computer.
Playback Controls
The following defines the function for each playback control:
To Browse Recorded Video
There are many different ways to view recorded video.
•
Drag the Timeline slider handle to the left or the right to play video backwards or forwards.
•
The Speed indicator let’s you know the speed of the playback. A negative number (e.g. -4X) indicates that the
video is playing backwards.
The further to the left or right that the Timeline slider is placed will direct the speed. The Timeline is calibrated so that the
slider jumps from one speed to the next.
Sample for reverse playback in 4 times normal speed
Only video in 1 x 1 views may use up to 12x (twelve times) normal speed for video playback. Views with multiple panes
may only play forward or backward in 1x (normal speed). You may maximize a pane in order to view the video with
increased playback speed.
