VIVOTEK
Overview
VIVOTEK FE8171V is the first fisheye fixed dome network camera from VIVOTEK, featuring detailed
3.1MP-resolution sensor with superb image quality. Equipped with a fisheye lens for 180° panoramic
view (wall mount) or 360° surround view (ceiling/floor/table mount) without blind spots, this camera is
able to provide an 8X wider field of view than a standard VGA camera, significantly reducing the need
for multiple camera installations. It is extremely suitable for monitoring open areas such as airports,
shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices, and many more.
The FE8171V offers various display layouts, including original surround view, panoramic views, and
regional views for various mounting applications. With the latest cutting-edge image processing,
hemispherical images captured from the fisheye camera can be converted into conventional rectilinear
projection for viewing and analysis. In addition, in the panoramic and regional viewing modes, users can
utilize the ultra-smooth ePTZ function to easily zoom in and focus on a region of interest (ROI).
As with all VIVOTEK true day/night cameras, the FE8171V features a removable IR-cut filter, maintaining
clear images 24 hours a day. Its IP66-rated housing is designed to help the camera body withstand rain
and dust and ensures operation under a multitude of harsh weather conditions. Additionally, the vandalproof IK10-rated housing effectively provides robust protection from vandalism. Together with 802.3af
compliant PoE, microSD/SDHC/SDXC card slot for on-board storage, EN50155 mobile surveillance,
and iPad iViewer applications, the FE8171V is indisputably the top choice for constructing a robust
surveillance system with the greatest coverage possible.

H.264 / MPEG-4 Protocol Options
H.264/MPEG-4 Protocol Options
Depending on your network environment, there are four options with the transmission protocols with
H.264 or MPEG-4 streaming:
UDP unicast: This protocol allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However, network
packets may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be broken. Activate UDP connection
when occasions require time-sensitive responses and the video quality is less important. Note that each
unicast client connecting to the server takes up additional bandwidth and the Network Camera allows up
to ten simultaneous accesses.
UDP multicast: This protocol allows multicast-enabled routers to forward network packets to all clients
requesting streaming media. This helps to reduce the network transmission load of the Network Camera
while serving multiple clients at the same time. Note that to utilize this feature, the Network Camera must
be configured to enable multicast streaming at the same time. For more information, please refer to
RTSP Streaming on page 67.
TCP: This protocol guarantees the complete delivery of streaming data and thus provides better video
quality. The downside of this protocol is that its real-time effect is not as good as that of using the UDP
protocol.
HTTP: This protocol allows the same quality as TCP protocol without needing to open specific ports for
streaming under some network environments. Users behind a firewall can utilize this protocol to allow
camera’s streaming data to pass through.

Security > IEEE 802.1x
Advanced Mode
Enable this function if your network environment uses IEEE 802.1x, which is a port-based network
access control. The network devices, intermediary switch/access point/hub, and RADIUS server must
support and enable 802.1x settings.
The 802.1x standard is designed to enhance the security of local area networks, which provides
authentication to network devices (clients) attached to a network port (wired or wireless). If all certificates
between client and server are verified, a point-to-point connection will be enabled; if authentication fails,
access on that port will be prohibited. 802.1x utilizes an existing protocol, the Extensible Authentication
Protocol (EAP), to facilitate communication.
■ The components of a protected network with 802.1x authentication:
Supplicant
(Network Camera)
Authenticator
(Network Switch)
Authentication Server
(RADIUS Server)
1. Supplicant: A client end user (camera), which requests authentication.
2. Authenticator (an access point or a switch): A “go between” which restricts unauthorized end users
from communicating with the authentication server.
3. Authentication server (usually a RADIUS server): Checks the client certificate and decides whether to
accept the end user’s access request.
■ VIVOTEK Network Cameras support two types of EAP methods to perform authentication: EAP-PEAP
and EAP-TLS.
Please follow the steps below to enable 802.1x settings:
1. Before connecting the Network Camera to the protected network with 802.1x, please apply a digital
certificate from a Certificate Authority (i.e., MIS of your company) which can be validated by a RADIUS
server.
2. Connect the Network Camera to a PC or notebook outside of the protected LAN. Open the
configuration page of the Network Camera as shown below. Select EAP-PEAP or EAP-TLS as the
EAP method. In the following blanks, enter your ID and password issued by the CA, then upload
related certificate(s).
56 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
3. When all settings are complete, move the Network Camera to the protected LAN by connecting it to an
802.1x enabled switch. The devices will then start the authentication automatically.
NOTE:
► The authentication process for 802.1x:
1. The Certificate Authority (CA) provides the required signed certificates to the Network Camera (the
supplicant) and the RADIUS Server (the authentication server).
2. A Network Camera requests access to the protected LAN using 802.1X via a switch (the authenticator).
The client offers its identity and client certificate, which is then forwarded by the switch to the RADIUS
Server, which uses an algorithm to authenticate the Network Camera and returns an acceptance or
rejection back to the switch.
3. The switch also forwards the RADIUS Server’s certificate to the Network Camera.
4. Assuming all certificates are validated, the switch then changes the Network Camera’s state to
authorized and is allowed access to the protected network via a pre-configured port.

Network > QoS (Quality of Service)
Advanced Mode
Quality of Service refers to a resource reservation control mechanism, which guarantees a certain quality
to different services on the network. Quality of service guarantees are important if the network capacity
is insufficient, especially for real-time streaming multimedia applications. Quality can be defined as, for
instance, a maintained level of bit rate, low latency, no packet dropping, etc.
The following are the main benefits of a QoS-aware network:
■ The ability to prioritize traffic and guarantee a certain level of performance to the data flow.
■ The ability to control the amount of bandwidth each application may use, and thus provide higher
reliability and stability on the network.
Requirements for QoS
To utilize QoS in a network environment, the following requirements must be met:
■ All network switches and routers in the network must include support for QoS.
■ The network video devices used in the network must be QoS-enabled.
QoS models
CoS (the VLAN 802.1p model)
IEEE802.1p defines a QoS model at OSI Layer 2 (Data Link Layer), which is called CoS, Class of
Service. It adds a 3-bit value to the VLAN MAC header, which indicates the frame priority level from 0
(lowest) to 7 (highest). The priority is set up on the network switches, which then use different queuing
disciplines to forward the packets.
Below is the setting column for CoS. Enter the VLAN ID of your switch (0~4095) and choose the priority
for each application (0~7).
If you assign Video the highest priority level, your network switch will handle video packets first.
NOTE:
► A VLAN-capable Switch (802.1p) is required. Web browsing may fail if the CoS setting is incorrect.
► Class of Service technologies do not guarantee a level of service in terms of bandwidth and delivery
time; they offer a “best-effort.” Users can think of CoS as “coarsely-grained” traffic control and QoS as
“finely-grained” traffic control.
► Although CoS is simple to manage, it lacks scalability and does not offer end-to-end guarantees since
it is based on L2 protocol.
User's Manual - 71
VIVOTEK
QoS/DSCP (the DiffServ model)
DSCP-ECN defines QoS at Layer 3 (Network Layer). The Differentiated Services (DiffServ) model is
based on packet marking and router queuing disciplines. The marking is done by adding a field to the
IP header, called the DSCP (Differentiated Services Codepoint). This is a 6-bit field that provides 64
different class IDs. It gives an indication of how a given packet is to be forwarded, known as the Per Hop
Behavior (PHB). The PHB describes a particular service level in terms of bandwidth, queueing theory,
and dropping (discarding the packet) decisions. Routers at each network node classify packets according
to their DSCP value and give them a particular forwarding treatment; for example, how much bandwidth
to reserve for it.
Below are the setting options of DSCP (DiffServ Codepoint). Specify the DSCP value for each application
(0~63).

This Network Camera offers real-time H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG compression standards (Triple
Codec) for real-time viewing.
If H.264 or MPEG-4 mode is selected, the video is streamed via RTSP protocol. There are four
parameters for you to adjust the video performance:
■ Frame size
You can set up different video resolution for different viewing devices. For example, set a smaller
frame size and lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones and a larger video size and a higher
bit rate for live viewing on web browsers. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximum refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for smoothlier video
quality.
Regardless of the power line frequency setting (60Hz or 50Hz), the frame rates are selectable at 1fps,
2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, and 15fps. You can also select Customize and manually enter a value.
User's Manual - 87
VIVOTEK
■ Intra frame period
Determine how often to plant an I frame. The shorter the duration, the more likely you will get better
video quality, but at the cost of higher network bandwidth consumption. Select the intra frame period
from the following durations: 1/4 second, 1/2 second, 1 second, 2 seconds, 3 seconds, and 4 seconds.
■ Video quality
A complex scene generally produces a larger file size, meaning that higher bandwidth will be needed
for data transmission. Therefore, if Constant bit rate is selected, the bandwidth utilization is fixed at
a selected level, resulting in mutable video quality performance. The bit rates are selectable at the
following rates: 20Kbps, 30Kbps, 40Kbps, 50Kbps, 64Kbps, 128Kbps, 256Kbps, 512Kbps, 768Kbps,
1Mbps, 2Mbps, 3Mbps, 4Mbps, 6Mbps, 8Mbps, 10Mbps, and 12Mbps. You can also select Customize
and manually enter a value.
On the other hand, if Fixed quality is selected, all frames are transmitted with the same quality;
bandwidth utilization is therefore unpredictable. The video quality can be adjusted to the following
settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, and Excellent. You can also select Customize and
manually enter a value.
If JPEG mode is selected, the Network Camera continuously sends JPEG images to the client, producing
a moving effect similar to a filmstrip. Every single JPEG image transmitted guarantees the same
image quality, which in turn comes at the expense of variable bandwidth usage. Because the media
contents are a combination of JPEG images, no audio data is transmitted to the client. There are three
parameters provided in MJPEG mode to control the video performance:
■ Frame size
You can set up different video resolution for different viewing devices. For example, set a smaller
frame size and lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones and a larger video size and a higher
bit rate for live viewing on web browsers. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximum refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for smoother video
quality.
The frame rates are selectable at 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, and 15fps. You can also select
Customize and manually enter a value. The frame rate will decrease if you select a higher resolution.
■ Video quality
The video quality can be adjusted to the following settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, and
Excellent. You can also select Customize and manually enter a value.
NOTE:
► Video quality and fixed quality refers to the compression rate. If you select to enter a Customized value
in the Fixed quality menu, a lower value will produce higher quality.
► Converting high-quality video may significantly increase the CPU loading, and you may encounter
streaming disconnection or video loss while capturing a complicated scene. In the event of occurance,
we suggest you customize a lower video resolution or reduce the frame rate to obtain smooth video.

■ AAC provides good sound quality at the cost of higher bandwidth consumption. The bit rates are
selectable from: 16Kbps, 32Kbps, 48Kbps, 64Kbps, 96Kbps, and 128Kbps.
■ GSM-ARM is designed to optimize speech quality and requires less bandwidth. The bit rates are
selectable from: 4.75Kbps, 5.15Kbps, 5.90Kbps, 6.7Kbps, 7.4Kbps, 7.95Kbps, 10.2Kbps, and

The Percentage Indicator will rise or fall depending on the variation between sequential images. When
motions are detected by the Network Camera and are considered to have exceeded the defined
threshold, the red bar rises. Meanwhile, the motion detection window will be outlined in red. Photos or
videos can be captured instantly and configured to be sent to a remote server (Email, FTP) using this
feature as a trigger source. For more information on how to set an event, please refer to Event settings
106 - User's Manual

on page 93.
A green bar indicates that even though motions have been detected, the event has not been triggered
because the image variations still fall under the defined threshold.
Percentage = 30%
If you want to configure specific motion detection settings individually for day/night/schedule operations,
please click Profile to open the Motion Detection Profile Settings page as shown below. A total of three
motion detection windows can be configured on this page as well.
Please follow the steps beolw to set up a profile:
1. Create a new motion detection window.
2. Check Enable this profile.
3. Select the applicable mode: Day mode, Night mode, or Schedule mode. Please manually enter a time
range if you prefer the Schedule mode.
4. Click Save to enable the settings and click Close to exit the page.

NOTE:
► How does motion detection work?
A
C
B
D
There are two motion detection parameters: Sensitivity and Percentage. In the illustration above,
frame A and frame B are two sequential images. Pixel differences between the two frames are
detected and highlighted in gray (frame C) and will be compared with the sensitivity setting. Sensitivity
is a value that expresses the sensitivity to moving objects. Higher sensitivity settings are expected to
detect slight movements while smaller sensitivity settings will neglect them. When the sensitivity is set
to 70%, the Network Camera defines the pixels in the purple areas as “alerted pixels” (frame D).
Percentage is a value that expresses the proportion of “alerted pixels” to all pixels in the motion
detection window. In this case, 50% of pixels are identified as “alerted pixels”. When the percentage is
set to 30%, the motions are judged to exceed the defined threshold; therefore, the motion window will
be outlined in red.
For applications that require a high level of security management, it is suggested to use higher
sensitivity settings and smaller percentage values.

Appendix
URL Commands for the Network Camera
1. Overview
For some customers who already have their own web site or web control application, the Network
Camera/Video Server can be easily integrated through URL syntax. This section specifies the external
HTTP-based application programming interface. The HTTP-based camera interface provides the
functionality to request a single image, control camera functions (PTZ, output relay etc.), and get and set
internal parameter values. The image and CGI-requests are handled by the built-in Web server.
2. Style Convention
In URL syntax and in descriptions of CGI parameters, text within angle brackets denotes content that
is to be replaced with either a value or a string. When replacing the text string, the angle brackets
should also be replaced. An example of this is the description of the name for the server, denoted with
<servername> in the URL syntax description below, that is replaced with the string myserver in the URL
syntax example further down in the page.
URL syntax is denoted with the word "Syntax:" written in bold face followed by a box with the referenced
syntax as shown below. For example, name of the server is written as <servername> and is intended to
be replaced with the name of the actual server. This can either be a name, e.g., "mywebcam" or "thecam.
adomain.net" or the associated IP number for the server, e.g., 192.168.0.220.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg
Description of returned data is written with "Return:" in bold face followed by the returned data in a box. All data is
returned in HTTP format, i.e., each line is separated with a Carriage Return and Line Feed (CRLF) printed as \r\n.
Return:
HTTP/1.0 <HTTP code> <HTTP text>\r\n
URL syntax examples are written with "Example:" in bold face followed by a short description and a light grey box
with the example.
Example: request a single snapshot image
http://mywebserver/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg
118 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
3. General CGI URL Syntax and Parameters
CGI parameters are written in lower-case and as one word without any underscores or other separators.
When the CGI request includes internal camera parameters, these parameters must be written exactly as
they are named in the camera or video server. The CGIs are organized in functionally-related directories
under the cgi-bin directory. The file extension .cgi is required.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/<subdir>[/<subdir>...]/<cgi>.<ext>
[?<parameter>=<value>[&<parameter>=<value>...]]
Example: Set digital output #1 to active

7/6
An 32-bit integer, each bit can be set separately as
follows:
Bit 0 => HTTP service;
Bit 1=> HTTPS service;
Bit 2=> FTP service;
Bit 3 => Two way audio and RTSP Streaming
service;
To stop service before changing its port settings.
It’s recommended to set this parameter when
change a service port to the port occupied by
another service currently. Otherwise, the service
may fail.
Stopped service will auto-start after changing port
settings.
Ex:
Change HTTP port from 80 to 5556, and change
RTP port for video from 5556 to 20480.
Then, set preprocess=9 to stop both service first.
