2-1 Minimum PC Requirement
Hardware:
Intel(R), Pentium(R), DUAL Core (D),CPU 3.0GHz or equivalent
2 GB system memory or above
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compactible sound card
Video Card: 3D hardware accelerator card required – 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible

Resolution of screen setting: 1280x960 or higher for the display of 720P/1080P
2.2 Environment Setting
There are many methods to set the IP SURVEILLANCE CAMERA environment. The following are discussed in this section:
□ Connection Using DHCP
□ Connection Using Static IP
NOTE: By default, IP Surveillance Camera will be set to static IP mode, please check 2.2.2
Connection Using Static IP for more details
2.2.1 Connection Using DHCP
You can set the IP Surveillance Camera environment with Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Networked devices
(clients) use DHCP to obtain various parameters necessary for the clients to operate in an Internet Protocol (IP) network. By using
this protocol, devices can be added to the network with minimal or no manual configurations.
There are two methods to build the connecting environment:
3
PC connected to IP SURVEILLANCE CAMERA
PC connected to IP Surveillance Camera through a router
2.2.2 Connection Using Static IP
You can build the IP Surveillance Camera working environment with a static IP address. The default static IP is 192.168.1.201. To
do this:
1) Build the network environment similar to DHCP mode. Plug-in the network line (RJ-45) from IP SURVEILLANCE CAMERA to PC
or to hub.
PC connected to IP SURVEILLANCE CAMERA
2) Connect an external power supply to turn on IP SURVEILLANCE CAMERA. All the settings are completed automatically until
LAN Green LED starts flashing.
3) You can open the Web browser with the default static IP address to remote monitor on Web interface.
4) You can also set the required static IP address when you have more than two IP SURVEILLANCE CAMERAs. You can change the
4
static IP address on Web interface - Open Web browser with default static IP address, 192.168.1.201. After you login to the Web
interface, select Network and type the required IP address (example, 192.168.1.101). Click Submit. Once you open a new Web
browser, IPCAM starts working with the new static IP address. You can use the same method to set others.
2.3 VLC Media Player Setting
To set the VLC media player and open a network stream:
1) Open VLC media player.
2) Click Settings > Preferences. The Preferences dialog box is displayed.
NOTE: Before setting, ensure that all the parameters are set to default values. To do this, in the Preferences dialog box, click
Reset Preferences
3) On the left pane, click Video and select Overlay video output option. Also, select All in Show settings
5
4) On the left pane, click Video/Codecs > Demuxers > RTP/RTSP. Check the caching value. For low latency, it should be 70~80
based on PC's performance.
Note: If the video is not smooth, set the value as 200~1200. This may be due to network congestion, busy PC (memory is not
enough or too many process running at the same time) or PC's performance does not meet the minimum requirement.
5) Click Save to save the settings.
6) In the VLC media player window, on the Media menu, click Open Network Stream. The Open dialog box is displayed.
7) Select the RTSP option. In Address textbox, type the URL and click Play.
streamname1=H264(1280x720)@rtsp://192.168.10.169:554/PSIA/Streaming/channels/0
streamname2=JPEG(640x352)@rtsp://192.168.10.169:8554/PSIA/Streaming/channels/2
streamname3=H264(320x192)@ rtsp://192.168.10.169:554/PSIA/Streaming/channels/1
Note: To check IPCAM’s RTSP setting, you can go to http://xxx.xxx.xxx(IPCAM’s IP)/ini.htm and check the values
6
Once you click OK, the video appears on the browser.

Important Note:
◎You can get the IP address from UPnP or USB, if IP Surveillance Camera is in DHCP mode.
◎By default, IP Surveillance Camera’s static IP address will be 192.168.1.201.
You can also set manual IP address as
required in static IP mode. For more information, see section 2.2.2.
◎You can also use bundled IP-Searcher tool to get the IP address.
3) One needs to uninstall the old version of activeX version as mentioned in section 3.2 when there is an upgrade from
previous version of IP SURVEILLANCE CAMERA software.
4) If the IP SURVEILLANCE CAMERA is used in IE for the first time in a PC, Pop-up will be shown with the required ActiveX player

◎ Priority: Priorize Frame or Priorize Exposure
◎ Max Exposure Time: Only AUTO can be selected in this version
◎ Max Gain: Only AUTO can be selected in this version
Sensor mode: Select the required option. The options available for tuning these are:
◎ Binning: 2560H x 1440V FOV binned (2x2) in sensor to 1280H x 720V for 720P resolution as primary stream. This
enables enhance low-light performance.
◎ Skipping: 2560H x 1440V FOV skipped (2x2) in sensor to 1280H x 720V for 720P resolution as primary stream. This
helps in increasing capture rate.
◎ Window: This will capture the input video at 1080P resolution and resize the desired resolution. This will have binning
switched OFF. For ex: for 720P resolution as primary stream. Sensor will send data at 1080P resolution and then resize
to 720P resolution. This is enabled to keep constant FOV for all modes/resolutions.
24
Note:
Binning reduces resolution by combining adjacent same color image pixels to produce one output pixel. All the pixels in the
field of view, contribute to output image in bin model. As a result, low-light performance also gets enhanced.
Skipping mode is used to increase frame rate and to reduce image size without reducing the field of view. Skipping reduces
resolution by using only selected pixels from the field of view in the output image. In skip mode, pixels in the entire rows and
columns are not sampled. This results in lower resolution output image.
