Naming and Definition
GV-System
GeoVision Analog and Digital Video Recording
Software. The GV-System also refers to GV-Multicam
System, GV-NVR, GV-DVR and GV-Hybrid DVR at the
same time.
GV-VMS
GeoVision Video Management System for IP cameras.
xv
Note for Connecting to GV-System
/ GV-VMS
The GV-IPCAM is designed to work with GV-System / GV-VMS, a hybrid
or digital video management system. Note the following when the
camera is connected to GV-System / GV-VMS:
1
By default, the images are recorded to the memory card inserted in
the GV-IPCAM (except GV-IR Arctic Box Camera and Target
Series, which are not equipped with a memory card slot).
2
Once the camera is connected to the GV-System / GV-VMS, the
resolution set on the GV-System / GV-VMS will override the
resolution set on the camera’s Web interface. You can only change
the resolution settings through the Web interface when the
connection to the GV-System / GV-VMS is interrupted.
xvi
Note for Recording
1
By default, the images are recorded to the memory card inserted in
the GV-IP Camera (except GV-IR Arctic Box Camera and Target
Series, which are not equipped with a memory card slot). Make
sure the Write recording data into local storage option (see
3.1.1 Video Settings) is enabled. If this option is disabled, the
camera will stop recording to the memory card while the live view is
accessed through Web browsers or other applications.
2
Mind the following when using a memory card for recording:
3

Recorded data on the memory card can be damaged or lost if
the data are accessed while the camera is under physical
shock, power interruption, memory card detachment or when
the memory card reaches the end of its lifespan. No
guarantee is provided for such causes.

The stored data can be lost if the memory card is not
accessed for a long period of time. Back up your data
periodically if you seldom access the memory card.

Memory cards are expendable and their durability varies
according to the conditions of the installed site and how they
are used. Back up your data regularly and replace the
memory card annually.

Replace the memory card when its read/write speed is lower
than 6 MB/s or when the memory card is frequently
undetected by the camera.
It is recommended to use memory cards of the following setting
and specifications:

Apply a battery backup (UPS) to avoid power outage.

Use Micro SD card of MLC NAND flash, Class 10 for better
performance.
xvii
Note for GV-BX2600

2
Dual streaming is not supported.
3
Video analysis functions, including motion detection, are not
supported.
4
TV-out is not supported.
5
The frame rate will be dropped to 30 fps during live streaming and
recording when the camera starts monitoring.
6

1
If the camera is switched to single stream (while stream two is
deselected) and Noise Reduction is disabled, the frame rate
can reach up to 30 FPS.
2
If the camera is switched to dual streams and Noise Reduction
is disabled, the frame rate can reach up to 25 FPS.
3
As long as Noise Reduction is enabled, whether the camera is
switched to single stream or dual streams, the frame rate will
be 15 FPS.

Getting Started
Chapter 2 Getting Started
This section provides the initial and basic configurations of the GVIPCAM.
2.1 Accessing the Live View
When the camera is connected to a network with a DHCP server, it will
be automatically assigned with a dynamic IP address. See 2.1.1
Checking the Dynamic IP Address to look up this IP address.
However, if you do not have a DHCP server on your network, access the
camera by its default IP address 192.168.0.10 and see 2.1.2 Configuring
the IP Address for more details.
Note: By default, GV-PTZ010D is assigned with the fixed IP address
192.168.0.10.
3
2.1.1 Checking the Dynamic IP Address
Follow the steps below to look up the IP address and access the Web
interface.
1.
Install the GV-IP Device Utility program included on the Software
DVD.
Note: The PC installed with GV-IP Device Utility must be under the
same LAN with the camera you wish to configure.
2.
On the GV-IP Utility window, click the
button to search for the
IP devices connected in the same LAN. Click the Name or Mac
Address column to sort.

2
Getting Started
IMPORTANT:
1.
If Dynamic IP Address or PPPoE is enabled, you need to know
which IP address the camera will get from DHCP server or ISP to
log in. If your camera is installed in the LAN, use the GV-IP
Device Utility to look up its current dynamic IP address. See 2.1.1
Checking the Dynamic IP Address. If your camera uses a public
dynamic IP address via PPPoE, use the dynamic DNS Service to
obtain a domain name that is linked to the camera’s changing IP
address first. For details on Dynamic IP Address and PPPoE, see
4.7.1 LAN Configuration and 4.7.3 Advanced TCP/IP.
2.
If Dynamic IP Address or PPPoE is enabled and you cannot
access the camera, you may have to reset it to the factory default
and then perform the network settings again.
To restore your camera to default settings, see Loading Factory
Default in the corresponding Hardware Manual.

Contrast: Adjusts the relative differences between one pixel and the
next.

Saturation: Adjusts the saturation of the image.

Sharpness: Adjusts the sharpness of the image

Gamma: Adjusts the relative proportions of bright and dark areas

White balance: The camera automatically adjusts the color to be
closest to the image you are viewing. You can choose one of the four
presets: Auto, Outdoor, Fluorescent, and Tungsten Lamp. You
can also choose Manual to adjust the white balance manually.

Flicker less: The camera automatically matches the frequency of
your camera’s image to the frequency of indoor light sources, e.g.
fluorescent lighting. You can also select 50 Hz or 60 Hz manually. If
these don’t match, faint light and dark bars may appear in your

Flicker is listed in Video Signal Type, 4.1.1 Video Settings.

Image Orientation: Changes the image orientation on the Live
View window.

Slowest Shutter Speed: Shutter speed controls the amount of the
lights enters the image sensor and directly impacts the quality of
image presentation. A slow shutter speed allows higher light
exposure that creates a brighter overall image by blurring moving
objects and bringing out background details, and a faster shutter
speed lowers color and image clarity in order to capture motions.
The minimum shutter speed ranges from 1/5 to 1/8000 sec. In low
light conditions, a fast shutter speed will lower color quality and
image clarity. In this case, select the Auto option for automatic
shutter control or select Auto (High Speed Mode) for a faster
automatic shutter control.


4.1 Video and Motion
The GV-IPCAM can simultaneously process one video source in two
different codec and resolutions. The dual-stream design benefits for lower
bandwidth environment, allowing Streaming 2 to be set with lower
resolution and codec for live streaming, and Streaming 1 set with highest
resolution and H.264 / H.265 for best recording quality. Two setting pages
Streaming 1 and Streaming 2 are provided for separate setup.

Note that for all the cameras (except GV-PTZ010D), the resolution options
available for sub stream vary with the resolution selected for its main
stream. For example, if a 4:3 resolution is selected for the main stream in
GV-EVD5100, three options, 960 x 720, 640 x 480 and 320 x 240 will be
available for its sub stream.

Flicker: Choose the Flicker Hz value between 60 Hz or 50 Hz. This
function is only supported by GV-BX4700 Series / 5700 Series.
Note:
1.
For GV-BX4700 series, to reach 25 fps at 2560 x 1440, Flicker Hz
value must be set at 50 Hz.
2.
The Hardware WDR Support option (see Figure 4-2A) is only
available for GV-BX2600. It produces clear live view when the
scene contains very bright and very dark areas at the same time.
This function is enabled by default. However, you will be prompted
to disable the function when the camera records up to 60 frames
per second.
For WDR Pro or WDR option of other cameras, see Camera
Adjustment in 3.2.2 The Control Panel on the Live View Window
to adjust the setting.
[Bandwidth Management] When using the H.264 / H.265 codec, it is
possible to control the bitrate, which in turn allows the amount of bandwidth
usage to be controlled.

VBR (Variable Bitrate): The quality of the video stream is kept as
constant as possible at the cost of a varying bitrate. The bandwidth is
much more efficiently used than a comparable CBR.
Set the image quality to one of the 5 standards: Standard, Fair,
Good, Great and Excellent.
61
Maximal Bit Rate: When the actual bitrate exceeds the specified
Maximal Bit Rate, the system will automatically lower its bitrate so as
not to exceed it. Select one of the bitrates from the drop-down list or
select Auto if you do not want to enable this function. The default
maximal bitrate values are detailed as follows:

Note: For GV-BX2600, the default maximum bitrate for Stream 1 is set to
6 Mbit. When the video format of Stream 1 and 2 is set as MJPEG, the
options for bitrate setting will be hidden automatically.

CBR (Constant Bitrate): CBR is used to achieve a specific bitrate by
varying the quality of the H.264 / H.265 stream. Select one of the
bitrates from the drop-down list.

Smart Streaming: When the option is enabled, the bitrates will be
automatically reduced in static scenes, significantly maximizing
bandwidth and lowering file size.
You can choose the image quality of Static Scene and Dynamic
Scene to one of the 5 standards: Standard, Fair, Good, Great and
Excellent. You can even choose the maximum bitrate to optimize the
bandwidth.
62

smooth.
To apply QoS to the camera, all network routers must support QoS and
QoS must be enabled on these devices. To enable the QoS on the camera,
enter a Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) value. This value is a
field in an IP packet that enables different levels of services for the network
traffic. When the video stream from the camera reaches a router, the
DSCP value will tell the router what service level to be applied, e.g. the
bandwidth amount. This value ranges from 0 to 63 in decimal format. The
default value is 0, meaning QoS is disabled.
