setting of the wireless connection you can enable the WPS function.
31
Network Camera User Manual
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) refers to the easy configuration of the encrypted
connection between the device and the wireless router. The WPS makes it easy to
add new devices to an existing network without entering long passphrases. There are
two modes of the WPS connection, the PBC mode and the PIN mode.
Note: If you enable the WPS function, you do not need to configure the parameters
such as the encryption type and you don’t need to know the key of the wireless
connection.
Steps:
Figure 4-9 Wi-Fi Settings - WPS
PBC Mode:
PBC refers to the Push-Button-Configuration, in which the user simply has to push a
button, either an actual or virtual one (as the
button on the
configuration interface of the IE browser), on both the Access Point (and a registrar
of the network) and the new wireless client device.

Video Quality:
When bitrate type is selected as Variable, 6 levels of video quality are selectable.
Frame Rate:
Set the frame rate from 1/16 to 25 fps. The frame rate is to describe the frequency
at which the video stream is updated and it is measured by frames per second
(fps). A higher frame rate is advantageous when there is movement in the video
stream, as it maintains image quality throughout.
Max. Bitrate:
Set the max. bitrate from 32 to 16384 Kbps. The higher value corresponds to the
higher video quality, but the better bandwidth is required.
Note: The maximum limit of the max. bitrate value varies according to different
camera platforms. For certain cameras, the maximum limit is 8192 Kbps or 12288
Kbps.
Video Encoding:
If the Stream Type is set to main stream, H.264 and MPEG4 are selectable. If the
Stream Type is set to sub stream or third stream, H.264, MJPEG, and MPEG4 are
selectable.
If you set the Main Stream as the Stream Type, and H.264 as the video coding,
you can see H.264+ is available. H.264+ is an advanced compression coding
technology. By enabling H.264+, users can calculate the HDD consumption by its
average bitrate, and save the storage by lowering the bitrate as well. You need to
reboot the camera if you want to turn on or turn off the H.264+. When the
75
Network Camera User Manual
H.264+ is enabled and the Bitrate Type is selected as Variable, the Average Bitrate
is configurable, and you can calculate the HDD consumption according to the
average bitrate, or you can set the average bitrate manually, which should be
smaller than max. bitrate.
Note: With H.264+ enabled, the parameters such as Profile, I Frame Interval, SVC,
Max. Bitrate are greyed out if the Bitrate Type is variable. And the Video Quality,
Profile, I Frame Interval, and SVC are greyed out if you set the Bitrate Type as
constant.

Basic profile, Main Profile, and High Profile for coding are selectable.
I Frame Interval:
Set I Frame Interval from 1 to 400.
SVC:
Scalable Video Coding is an extension of the H.264/AVC standard. Select OFF/ON
to disable/enable the SVC function. Select Auto and the device will automatically
extract frames from the original video when the network bandwidth is
insufficient.
Smoothing:
It refers to the smoothness of the stream. The higher value of the smoothing is,
the better fluency of the stream will be, though, the video quality may not be so
satisfactory. The lower value of the smoothing is, the higher quality of the stream
will be, though it may appear not fluent.
