Before Using the VB101
This chapter contains information that you should read before
using the VB101. It also describes the features of the VB101, the
system configuration, the hardware and software requirements,
and the name and functions of the system components.
Features of the VB101
The VB101 is a system that distributes live videos via the Internet or an Intranet. It can be used in a wide
variety of applications such as distributing live videos or monitoring from a Web site. The system is
configured of the VB101 and viewer software. Please use the supplied viewer software to view videos
distributed from the VB101 or to control a camera.
■Broad band Video Distribution Function
Video can be captured at a maximum of 30 fps. Motion-JPEG is used to compress the video
images. The network auto switches between Ethernet 100 MBPS and 10 Mbps, and if a PC card
modem is used, the analog public line network or the PFS network (PIAFS) can also be used.
Since video quality (1-99) and the frame rate (0.1-30 fps) can be freely set, video can be
distributed under conditions that best suit the network bandwidth.
■Simultaneous video reception by up to 40 users
Up to 40 clients can view videos simultaneously with a single VB101 unit.
■Remote camera control from the viewer
Two types of viewer software are provided: Helper Viewer and Java Viewer. These viewers can
be used to freely control the angle (pan and tilt) and the zoom magnification of cameras installed
in a remote location, enabling viewing videos with plenty of ambiance.
■Control for up to 4 cameras
Up to 4 video cameras can be connected to the VB101, and videos that you view can be switched
from the viewer. If Canon Communications VC-C4/VC-C4R cameras are used, you will be able to
control all cameras (using the cascade function of the VC-C4/VC-C4R).
■Panorama picture creation function and various settings
The camera's entire recordable area can be created as a panorama picture and saved. The saved
picture can then be used to easily and visually set view restrictions and presets.
■Camera position preset function
When presets such as camera angles (direction in which camera is aimed or zoom position) are
stored in advance, the camera can be controlled by simply selecting the desired preset from the
viewer. Up to 8 sets of presets can be stored.
■View restriction function
Restrictions can be applied to zoom magnifications and angle settings to
prevent viewers from seeing certain camera angles. When using the VB101 to
operate a fixed point camera over the Internet, for example, it is possible to
consider privacy when distributing videos (page 1, "Request Concerning the
Disclosure of Live Pictures").
■Built-in Web server and FTP server
The VB101 has a built-in Web server. If Web page data is written onto a flash memory card (sold
separately), the VB101 will be able to distribute Web pages and videos over the Web. Since the
VB101 also has a built-in FTP server, Web page data can be sent from a remote location as a file
(FTP).
14
Features of the VB101
■Easy setting and administration
Since the VB101 provides settings pages that utilize the Web, you can use a PC and Web
browser to make settings and perform administrative tasks remotely without going to the location
where the VB101 is installed.
■Plenty of expandability
The VB101 includes 2 card slots, allowing a modem or flash memory card to be added to suit
various applications.
■Log function
The Log function lets you save log information such as errors and access conditions in a file
and send it to specific email addresses.
1
■Strengthened security function
Before Using the VB101
Passwords can be used to restrict destinations where videos are sent. Up to 30 clients can be
registered.
■Picture recording via link with external device or schedule
Still pictures can be recorded based on ON/OFF events from an external device or schedules set
in advance. Moreover, if VBCollector is used, still pictures recorded by the VB101 can be
automatically collected by a PC and viewed.

This system configuration consists of the VB101 with WebView Livescope Viewer Software (→ P.18). The
WebView Livescope Viewer Software consists of the Helper Viewer and the Java Viewer.
Helper Viewer must be installed in advance from the supplied CD-ROM, while Java Viewer is not installed in
advance but automatically downloaded from the VB101. Since Java Viewer is downloaded each time you want to
view videos, it is useful when viewing videos for the first time. Helper Viewer, however, is more convenient when you
want to view videos frequently.
If you want to distribute live videos of places such as popular tourist destinations from Web pages, it is best for your
Web page visitors to use the Java Viewer that does not need to be installed in advance.
■Viewer software types and functions
Viewer Software
Functions
Videos from the VB101 can be displayed by a Web browser that can run Java applet.
Because the Java Viewer is automatically downloaded and does not need to be pre-installed, unlike
the Helper Viewer, it is compatible with any platform that supports Java-capable environments.
Java Viewer
Because it uses the HTTP protocol, the Java Viewer penetrates firewalls. However, it may
not run stably on some platforms or browser types.
Also, because the Viewer is downloaded when the Web page loads, start-up times and
execution speeds are slower than the Helper Viewer.
A helper application for viewing videos from the VB101 that is launched from a Web browser.
The Helper Viewer must be pre-installed.
Helper Viewer
Install Helper Viewer from the supplied CD-ROM.
Compared with the Java Viewer, start-up is faster because the Viewer does not need to be
downloaded. This Viewer is recommended for users who use it frequently.
Because it supports the HTTP protocol, the Helper Viewer penetrates firewalls unscathed.
c
Note
● To connect the VB101 to the Internet, you require a leased line connection to an
Internet service provider or a LAN-type dialup IP connection. If you are using a LANtype dialup connection, check that the connection supports bidirectional calling.
● Install Helper Viewer from "Mo Setup.exe" on the supplied CD-ROM.
● The WebView Livescope user's manual is on the supplied CD-ROM. (Mon-E.pdf)

Before Using the VB101
The WebView Livescope MV software (→ P.19) is convenient if there are several VB101 installed on a
LAN and you wish to concentrate on monitoring videos from them.
The WebView Livescope MV software consists of MV Manager and MV Station. MV Manager lets you
uniformly manage VB101 operating status. It also lets you select and create a monitoring screen best
suited to the number of VB101s on the LAN from among a rich variety of examples. MV Station lets you
use the monitoring screen created in MV Manager to view pictures from multiple points where VB101 units
are installed while also remote controlling cameras and external devices.

Using a PC Card
The VB101 has 2 card slots, and you can store Web page data, etc. by inserting a flash memory card into
one of these slots.
Procedure for Using Flash Memory Cards
1
Insert the flash memory card
into the VB101.
You can insert the card into either
Flash memory card
VB101 rear panel
slot. But if flash memory cards are
inserted in both slots, you cannot use both cards at the same time. Preparation is
complete when the LED on the front of the VB101 changes from green to orange.
2
Create the directories.
2
Create directories named "htdocs" and "logs", for Web page data (hereafter referred to
as content) and log data respectively, on the flash memory card. You can create the
Installation
directories using ftp commands or by inserting the flash memory card into a notebook
PC etc and using file operations.
3
Save the content.
You can save the content to the flash memory card using either file operations on a
notebook PC etc or remotely using FTP. When a flash memory card is inserted
correctly, it is mounted in the VB101 file system as a directory named "/card". The
content data is stored as files in the /card/htdocs directory (file names made up of eight
alphanumeric characters followed by a three-character extension). Data can also be
stored in the flash memory built into the VB101. However, due to the limited available
space (550 kilobytes), only the minimum required amount of data can be stored.

● To use a Web browser as an FTP client:
Insert "user name: password@" before the IP address, as in "ftp://
root:VB101@192.168.100.1/card/htdocs". The FTP user is restricted to the
system administrator (→ P.32). The VB101 does not support anonymous FTP.
● Use only flash memory cards recommended by Canon.

e About View Restriction
Tip
● The pan and tilt range changes with the zoom ratio (field of view angle).
When you set the view
restriction, the angles of camera
movement are automatically
restricted.
If the zoom is set to wide-angle
and the angle of camera movement
remains the same, video capture
extends beyond the permitted range.
Consequently, the angle of movement
is automatically reduced.

Picture Recording and External Device I/O Settings Page
Use this page to specify the operating condition for the picture recording function. Settings on this
page can be used to record still pictures in response to inputs from an external device (sensor,
etc.) and based on a predetermined schedule (up to 10000 picures).
Picture Recording Common Settings
"Max No. of Pictures to be Recorded"
Specifies the upper limit for the number of
pictures to be recorded. This value can be
from 1 to 10,000.
"Auto Deletion of Recorded Pictures"
Recorded pictures can automatically be
deleted on the specified time after the
specified number of days has passed.
"Recording Priority"
When there is a conflict between the timing of recording
specified in a schedule and "Recording between ON
event and OFF event", this setting specifies which
recording takes priority. Tick "Recording triggered by
external device" or "Recording triggered by schedule".
The factory default setting gives priority to "Recording
triggered by external device" .
c
Note
"No. of days recorded pictures held"
Specifies how many days the recorded
picture data will be kept in a flash memory
card. The recorded data which exceeded the
days specified in "No. of days recorded
pictures held" is erased daily at the time
specified in "Recoreded picture delete time".
In this manner, picture recording function
does not keep data on a permanent basis, so
use FTP to transfer the data files or replace
the flash memory card when needed.
Picture files are placed in the /card /images
directory.
A Flash Memory card is required for
recording pictures.
Files created at yyyy/mm/dd/HH/MM/SS/CC
(CC = 1/100th sec. units) are placed in the
yyyymmdd/HHQQ (QQ = 15-min. units)
subdirectory under the name
"HHMMSSCC.jpg".
"Recorded picture delete time"
Sets the time at which picture files are deleted.
● Still pictures are recorded on a flash memory card (sold separately). Even if
the settings on this page are specified, the Picture Recording function does
not perform if there is no memory card in the VB101 slot.
● The data size that can be recorded for a still picture is less than 32 KB. If
this amount is exceeded, the picture will not be recorded. The number of
pictures that can be recorded depends on flash memory card capacity,
however the maximum number of pictures that can be recorded is 10000.
e
Tip
● The data size for a still picture varies depending on the settings for video capture
size and video quality (→ P.43), and the subject. As a guide, approximately 5-10
KB is the standard when the video capture size is set to 320x240 and the video
quality is set to 30 (In some cases this may be exceeded). To check the amount of
data for a still picture, select "View" - "Video information" from the menu after you
start up the Helper Viewer, then check the "Size" value.
● When recording pictures, it is convenient to do so in combination with
VBCollector, which automatically collects recorded still pictures. (→ P.127)

Listing Guidelines
Descriptions in the Authorized/Restricted Host List are extremely complex, and errors in the
settings can result in access being prohibited where it should be permitted. To avoid this, follow
the guidelines given below with great care.
1.Left-align the mask
172.20.0.0/255.255.0.0 -- Correct
172.0.28.0/255.0.255.0 -- Incorrect
2.Use denied entries mainly rather than permitted entries.
!172.20.26.0/255.255.255.0
!172.20.28.0/255.255.255.0
3.Make permitted entries subsets of denied entries.
172.20.26.0/255.255.255.0
172.20.28.0/255.255.255.0
!172.20.0.0/255.255.0.0
4.List specific entries before generic entries.
Not like this:
!172.20.0.0/255.255.0.0
172.20.28.0/255.255.255.0
Like this:
172.20.28.0/255.255.255.0
!172.20.0.0/255.255.0.0
5.Avoid risky settings.
0.0.0.0/255.255.255.255
10.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
Such specification are not prohibited, but will effectively prohibit access from all hosts. Avoid
entry !0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 in particular wherever possible.
c
Note
● The default value for "mask" is 255.255.255.255.
● If you do not make a list, access is permitted to all hosts.
● If the list provided prohibits access for all hosts, the Host Restriction
function is disabled and access is permitted to all hosts.
● To prohibit access over HTTP connection via a proxy server, the address of
the proxy server must be set.
● If you set the host restriction incorrectly, access to the settings page itself
may be denied. In this event, the problem can only be recovered by
restoring the factory default settings. (→ P.160)

Log Viewer
The VB101 includes a feature that writes operating status to a log file and saves it. Log Viewer simplifies
the reading of log files and provides management and resolution of errors. Log Viewer not only displays all
logs, it is also capable of filtering so that only the required information is displayed.
c
Note
To view logs, it is necessary first to make log settings on the VB101 so that
logs will be written into a file on the VB101. Also, Log Viewer is used only for
viewing logs; it cannot save or delete logs. (See p.58 for details.)

Click this button to retrieve camera control privilege.
c
Note
Since most operations and settings of Admin Viewer are common with the
Helper Viewer, basic camera control and the like are omitted here. This chapter
describes only the functions and operations that are unique to Admin Viewer.
The manual for the viewer software is provided on the supplied CD-ROM
( Mon-E.pdf).
About the special privileges of administrators
Since Admin Viewer has more special privileges than the Helper Viewer and Java
Viewer, please keep in mind the following points when using Admin Viewer:
● Since connection time is unlimited, please exit the Viewer after viewing.
● When a camera control privilege has been obtained, Admin Viewer
forcibly continues to obtain this privilege. After viewing, be sure to exit
the Viewer or click the Control button again to release these privileges.
● When making settings, keep in mind that images outside the view
restrictions are displayed also in the Helper Viewer and Java Viewer that are
connected simultaneously with Admin Viewer.

Creating Web Pages
This chapter describes how to use the VB101 to webcast
information.
Picture data can be distributed in various ways, including
displaying video or still pictures and displaying multiple images on
a Web page.
Web Pages for Video Distribution
To distribute picture data by VB101, you create a dedicated web page. The viewers that can be used with
the VB101 are "Java Viewer (with or without camera control function)" and "Helper Viewer", and detailed
parameters can be specified for each of these. You need to determine which of these viewers is supported
and create the Web page for the viewer.

, a file that includes the IP address information for the
. If you are using the Java version, the applet is
downloaded to the viewer PC from the VB101 in response to the request in step
and the video
request is then initiated.
c
Note
● File Names
The VB101 can handle file names consisting of up to 8 characters followed
by a 3-character extension. Note that the names of applets built into the
VB101 are exceptions to this rule.
● The VB101 includes a built-in Web server. If the content of Web pages used
for distributing video is stored onto a the flash memory, the VB101 can be
used alone for distributing Web pages and videos over the Web. Refer to
step 3 on page 27 for information on saving content.
e
Tip
You can use the Language setting function for the Browser to create a multilingual Web site. For example, if you set the French-language top page as
index-fr.htm and the English-language top page as index.htm and supply
users with a URL address terminates in slash, such as http://vb101/sample/,
the server will transmit a file that corresponds with the language setting for
the Browser. For further information on the Language setting function for the
Browser, refer to the Browser Help.
92
Web Pages for Video Distribution
Features of the Java Viewers
These viewers are supplied as Java applets. They run on Web browsers that are Java-capable,
such as the Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers. The applets are
downloaded from the camera server to the Web browser and are then run by the Web browser. The
features of the Java Viewers are described below.
Video distribution and camera operation using the WebView-HTTP
protocol. Penetrate firewalls to access external sites.
Because they are automatically downloaded, the Java Viewers do not
need to be pre-installed by the client.
Java Viewers run on a wide variety of platforms .
e
Tip
Because the Java applets are downloaded using the HTTP protocol when the
Viewer starts up, the start up time is longer than the Helper Viewer.
5
Java Viewer Types
Creating Web Pages
Two Java Viewers are "LiveApplet", which has video display and camera control functions, and
"Glimpse", which only has video display functions. Because both viewers use WebView-HTTP as
the transfer protocol, they do not require special settings to penetrate firewalls.
■Viewer Types
Viewer Name
Functions
Displays videos from the VB101.
Allows camera control.
LiveApplet
Allows overlays and superimposition of bitmaps in the video frame.
* Because video is not displayed until the viewer has finished
downloading, video display takes longer than with the Helper Viewer.
Allows the video distribution interval to be set.
Glimpse
* Downloading is faster than "LiveApplet" because it has only simple
functions and size is small.

Features of the Helper Viewer
The Helper Viewer is an application which is launched from a Web browser. Unlike the Java
Viewer, it must be pre-installed on the client's computer. The features of the Helper Viewer are
described below.
Must be pre-installed, but once installed, start-up time is quick and
operation is stable.
The Helper Viewer can use WebView-HTTP protocol and can penetrate
firewalls to access external sites.
However, this cannot pass through with the WebView-Tcp protocol (→
P.111).
Can be run as a stand-alone application.

● Writing IP Addresses
Using the Web server functions built into the VB101, IP addresses can be
expressed as <_I_P_A_D_D_R_> (all upper-case characters, including the angle
brackets) in the two file types (htm,wvh) used by the Web server in the VB101.
Since <_I_P_A_D_D_R> is replaced with the actual IP address when accessed,
the Web page does not need to be changed even when the IP address for the
VB101 is changed. In addition, NAT can be supported by specifying a Web page
global address. (→ P. 57, 115)

192.168.100.1 65311
wvhttp:192.168.100.1 80
● The first line gives the IP address (or host name) of the VB101 and the TCP port
number used for the video transmission service.
The default setting is 65310 (→ P.55). The default setting will be used if no particular
value is specified.
● The second line gives the IP address (or host name) of the VB101 and the TCP port
number used for the camera control. The default setting is 65310 (→ P.55). The default
setting will be used if no particular value is specified.
● The third line gives the setting for the Helper Viewer to use HTTP protocol. After
"wvhttp:", type in the IP address of the VB101 and "80" as the HTTP port number. As a
result of this, you will be able to view video images from the VB101 through firewalls.

Helper Viewer supports WebView Livescope protocol and HTTP protocol.
● WebView Livescope protocol: Cannot be viewed through firewalls. This
protocol is primarily for clients who are connected directly to the Internet.
● HTTP protocol: In general, this protocol is used with Web browsers. By
using this protocol, clients inside firewalls can view videos by penetrating
firewalls. The Java Viewer also uses this protocol.

captured will be bright and when this parameter is set to off, the picture captured will be
dark. If this parameter is omitted, camera backlight compensation is not controlled.
camera_id
Assigns the numbers 1 to 4 to camera 1 to 4. If this parameter is omitted, the
camera that is currently selected will be used.
delay
Waiting time until camera focus is stabilized (in milliseconds). Specified in the
range 0 to 10000.
option
Specifies how errors are dealt with. When "skip_on_error" is specified, the
process will be continued. When "quit_on_error" is specified, the process will
be aborted. The following errors can occur: failure to acquire camera control
right, loss of camera control, camera selection errors and camera control
errors. To omit, the default value is "quit_on_error".
seq
Allows any number (sequence number) to be specified to avoid displaying old
still pictures (numeric value).
v/image_size
Specifies the display size of the picture. Settings of 640 x 240, 320 x 240, and
160 x 120 are possible. Styles for v and image_size are different: For v, only
the horizontal size is specified, as in "v=640", for instance; while for
image_size, both horizontal and vertical sizes are specified, as in
"image_size=320x240", for instance.
q/quality
Specifies picture quality. Use an integer between 1 and 99. If omitted, the
value set in the VB101 is used.
If old still pictures are displayed, you can prevent this recurring by specifying
a sequence number in the seq parameter.
Example of video distribution using one fixed global address
One fixed global address is required if the VB101 is being used to distribute live video on the Internet. An
Internet service provider (ISP) that offers a single-address fixed global address service can be used (Note:
a router with NAT function is required).
Example:In this example, we use the global address
192.168.1.10 assigned by the ISP. We also set the
private address 192.168.100.2 in the VB101 (and
192.168.100.1 for the router).

Using the Picture
Recording Function
This chapter describes a couple of specific examples of the Picture
Recording function using the VB101. This function can be used to
automatically capture still pictures according to a preset schedule
or in response to inputs from an external device.
Using the Still Picture Recording Function Linked to an External Device
By using the "External Device Input 1/2" setting and connecting devices such as sensors and switches to
the VB101, you can construct a monitoring system that operates in response to external events. The still
pictures captured in this way are recorded on a flash memory card inserted into the VB101.
Sample application in combination with a door-opening sensor and lighting unit
This is a monitoring system in which the lighting unit needed to take pictures switches on when the
door opens and the VC-C4R camera mounted on the ceiling captures still pictures. The equipment
shown in the figure below is connected to the terminals on the rear of the VB101 at installation.

Using the Still Picture Recording Function with a Predetermined Schedule
By using the "Schedule 1-4" setting, you can construct a monitoring system that records pictures according
to a predetermined schedule. The still pictures captured in this way are recorded on a flash memory card
inserted into the VB101.
Sample application in combination with a lighting unit
This is a monitoring system of the type used in art galleries and similar facilities in which the
exhibits are monitored in the hours they are unattended. The light switches on and still pictures
are captured at 10-minute intervals by a VC-C4R camera mounted on the ceiling. The equipment
shown in the figure below is connected to the terminals on the rear of the VB101 at installation.

Pictures Search CGI
The pictures search CGI includes the enum command to generate a list of recorded pictures that
satisfy the search criteria, the desc command to generate the video data display page, and the
data command to retrieve the video data.
enum Command
The enum command is used to generate a list display page for the search page and to generate
a page for SnapAnimator. The items displayed in the recorded picture list generated by the
enum command are displayed in order of the time they were recorded.
■enum Command Parameters
Parameter Name
Details
type
List format. Specify "html" to specify a list display page, or "anim" to specify a page
for SnapAnimator.
server
Specifies the HTTP server. If this parameter is omitted, the IP address of the client side
network interface is used*1.
target
Target frame name for list display. Mandatory when a multi-frame configuration is
used to construct the picture search page.
locale
Language used to display the desc command attribute information. Specify "english" for English-language display and "japanese"
for Japanese-language display. The default value is "english". When an undefined value is specified, the default value is used.
skip/limit
Specifies the range for the search results. Specify an integer of 0 or more for either. Of the list
of recorded pictures that satisfy the search criteria, the list displayed excludes the number of
items specified by the skip parameter from the beginning of the list and includes items up to
the limit imposed by the limit parameter. If these parameters are omitted or erroneous values
are specified, skip is set to 0 and limit to 100. If limit is set to 0, no limit is applied.
tn
Specifies the trigger that governs the main cause of picture recording. A setting of i0 restricts
any external input, and i1 and i2 restrict external input to inputs 1 and 2. A setting of s0 restricts
any schedule setting, and s1, s2, s3 and s4 restrict schedule setting to settings 1,2,3, and 4. If
this parameter is omitted, or an undefined value is specified, the trigger is unrestricted.
cn
Camera number used for recording. Specify a value from 1 to 4 as the camera number. If this
parameter is omitted or an undefined value is specified, the camera number is unrestricted.
ts
te
Start time for the recording period. Specify a setting using the "yyyymmddHHMMSS" format
(yyyy: year; mm: month; dd: day; HH: hour; MM: minute; SS: second). If this parameter is
omitted or an erroneous value is specified, the start time for the recording period is unrestricted.
A part of the mmddHHMMSS parameter can be omitted. The default settings are 01
for mm and dd, and 00 for HH, MM and SS.
End time for the recording period. The specification format and the handling of omitted or
erroneous parameters is the same as for ts. A part of the mmddHHMMSS parameter can be
omitted. The default settings are 12 for mm, 31 for dd, 23 for HH, and 59 for MM and SS.

Distributing Recorded Pictures
Distributing pictures that have been recorded
If you forward a picture (JPEG) recorded with the Schedule recording function and copy it, or
remove the card, download the picture to a PC and embed the picture in a Web page, you can
create a still-picture distribution page.
Distributing pictures in SnapAnimator display format
Pseudo-animations (→ P.123) are created using the SnapAnimator applet. The following example
is a SnapAnimator description in a HTML source. Customize the description between <APPLET>
and </APPLET> to enter the picture in the place you want to paste it.
<APPLET CODEBASE="http://192.168.100.1/-wvdoc-01-/SnapAnimator/"

<PARAM NAME=time2 VALUE="2000/03/16 01:08:15">
...
</APPLET>
* The underlined text is an IP address. Enter the actual IP address set for the VB101.
■SnapAnimator parameters
Parameter
Description
image0
Specifies the URL of the picture file. When specifying multiple picture files,
specify them successively as image1, image2, etc.
time0
Specifies the time at which image0 was taken. Written in the "Y/M/D H:M"
format.
The above example was generated using an emum command for the picture search CGI. By using this
description to properly specify the image0 and time0 parameters, you can also create an picture distribution
page that displays any still pictures (JPEG) you have on hand as pseudo-animations. In this case, enter the
time stamp that corresponds with the name of the picture file that you want to display in the shaded area and
enter the imageX and timeX parameters for the number of pictures which you want to display.
126
Using VBCollector
VBCollector is used to view pictures recorded by the VB101. With VBCollector, you can collect and display still
pictures recorded by the VB101 based on inputs from an external device or schedules. VBCollector accesses the
VB101 at specific times expressed in units such as dates, weeks, or months, and then downloads the recorded
pictures. Since the recorded pictures are saved one after another in the PC on which VBCollector is installed,
pictures can still be securely saved when the allowable limit on the number of pictures that the VB101 can record
and save has been exceeded. Downloaded images can also be easily viewed in the Web browser.

Troubleshooting
This chapter explains how to deal with problems that arise with the
operation of the VB101 and other faults.
Troubleshooting
Before you contact your Canon dealer or service outlet, check the items listed below. If a log message is
displayed, refer to the log message list for the log details and the appropriate response.
The VB101 does not start up. The Power lamp does not light.
● Check that the AC cable is connected correctly. (→ P.25)
● Switch the VB101 off and then on again (→ P.24).
● If initial settings (see p. 33) have not been made, the Power LED illuminates in orange,
but this does not indicate a malfunction. Please make the initial settings.
● If the Power LED stays orange and does not change to green, this indicates that there is a system fault.
Restore the factory default settings (→ P.160). If this does not resolve the problem, contact your Canon dealer.
The initial setup tools do not work.
● Check that the RS-232C cable used for setup is connected correctly. (→ P.25)
● Check that you have selected the correct COM port. (→ P.33)
● Check that there are no other active applications (terminal software, etc.) that are using
the COM port.
I cannot access the VB101 over the network.
● Check that the LAN cable is connected correctly. (→ P.25)
● Check that the VB101 network settings are correct. In particular, check that the IP address,
subnet mask and default gateway address settings are valid for the network you are using.
(→ P.33, 38)
● If you have changed the IP address, the new IP address does not take effect until you
reboot the VB101. Be sure to restart the VB101 after changing settings.
● If access control for the VB101 is being used, check the settings (→ P.52).
● Check that the IP address or URL settings in the viewer software are correct.
● If the NAT function of the router is used, check that the VB101's IP address noted on the
Web page is correct.
The video does not appear.
● Check that the camera is switched on and that the video cable is connected correctly.
● If the video quality is poor, check the video quality settings on the VB101 (→ P.43). Also,
check settings such as the number of background colors as on the viewer PC.
● You can limit the number of viewers that can access the VB101 at the same time (→
P.55). The message without video is displayed when this limit is exceeded.
● If you cannot see the video using the Java Viewer, check system settings such as the
browser version (→ P.18). Up-to-date information is provided on the VB101 Website.
(URL: http://www.canon.com/webview/)
● To view video using the Helper Viewer, it must first be installed (see p. 16). Please install
Helper Viewer after confirming the operating environment (see p. 18).
144
Troubleshooting
I can't control the camera.
● Check that the RS-232C cable for camera control is connected correctly. (→ P.25)
● Check that the VB101 control port for the corresponding camera is set correctly. (→ P.33)
● Check that the VB101 camera control is not restricted (→ P.55).
● Check to see if the camera angle is restricted by a preset (see p. 47).
● If you have changed the baud rate for the serial port on the camera, ensure that the
camera control baud rate setting on the VB101 matches the camera settings (→ P.43).
I forgot the password.
● You will have to return the VB101 to a service center. Please contact your Canon dealer.
I cannot record or search pictures.
● Check that the flash memory card has been inserted properly. (→ P.27)
● When the number of recorded pictures exceeds the limit, erase pictures that you do not
need or replace the memory card.
● Check that the camera is on and the cable has been connected properly. (→ P.25)
● A maximum of 32K bytes can be recorded for each picture. Reduce video capture size or
lower the video quality. (→ P.48)
● If there is an error in the search results, try to recover the index (/card/images/index.vbi).
Click on the "Rebuild" button (Rebuilding the recorded picture list) on the Administration
tools page to recover the index (→ P.59).

External Device I/O Terminals
External Device Input Terminals (In1, In2)
The external device input terminals consist of 2 terminals (In1 and In2), one of which is '+' (red) and
another is '-' (black). The '-' terminal is grounded on the inside of the main unit. By connecting two
cables to the + and – terminals and then electrically short-circuiting across the terminals (ON) or
separating the connection (OFF), an interrupt can be generated for the internal controller. See "Picture
Recording and External Device I/O Settings Page" in Chapter 3 "Setup Procedures" (→ P.49) for
information on the settings.
Connect any sensors and switches to terminals with electrically separate GND terminals and
power supplies.
External Device Output Terminals (Out1, Out2)
The external device output terminals consist of 2 white terminals (Out1 and Out2). Both terminal
combinations are peers. The Internal controller switches the two output terminals to disconnected
or connected condition. The output terminals use optocouplers and are separate from the internal
circuit in the VB101. Loads connected to the output terminals should be within the following
ratings:
Rating across the output terminals: Up to 50 V
DC
Continuous load current: 200
