Preface

The network camera WV-NS202A is designed to operate using a PC on a network (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX).

By connecting to a network (LAN) or the Internet, images and audio from the camera can be monitored on a PC via a network. *

Features

Progressive output with the super dynamic 3 function

SUPER-D 3 compensates brightness on a pixel-to-pixel basis so that it produces clearer images even if objects have various illumination intensities. The progressive output (with motion adaptive interlace/progressive conversion*) achieves high resolution image display.

* Motion adaptive interlace/progressive conversion function

The motion adaptive interlace/progressive conversion function compensates aliasing of images (that is specific to interlace scan when shooting motion) and converts images into progressive images. By converting into progressive images, clear images of both motion and stationary objects will be created.

JPEG/MPEG-4 dual encode

MPEG-4 images can be monitored while recording JPEG images.

Power over Ethernet (IEEE802.3af compliant) function is featured

When connecting with a PoE (Power over Ethernet) device, power will be supplied by simply connecting a LAN cable.

Interactive communication with audio (transceiver type) is available

By using the audio output connector and the microphone in connector, receiving audio from the camera on a PC and transmitting audio from the PC to the camera is available. (Transceiver type is the communication type that receives/transmits audio alternately between two operators. It is impossible to receive/transmit audio simultaneously between them.)

High power lens and high accuracy preset position function

A single camera provides wide area monitoring.

Upside-down installation is available

The camera can be installed not only on the ceiling but also on desktop.

When using an optional mount bracket, embedded installation on a ceiling or mounting on a wall is available.

Simple Black & white mode

Images will be displayed clear even at night since the camera will be automatically switched from the color mode to the black and white mode under low illumination condition.

Troubleshooting

Before asking for repairs, check the symptoms on the following table.

Contact your dealer if a problem cannot be solved even after checking and trying the solution or if the problem is not described below.

Symptom

Reference pages

The power cannot be turned on.

The camera does not move to the preset positions accurately.

When the camera is panning/tilting, the camera stops panning/tilting and mechanical noise comes from the camera.

The camera starts panning unpredictably.

Cause/solution

When using DC power supply

• Is the provided DC 12 V power cord plug firmly inserted into the DC 12 V power terminals of the camera?

Confirm that the plug is firmly inserted.

When using a PoE device for power supply

• Are the PoE device and the network connector on the rear of the camera connected using a

LAN cable (category 5)?

Confirm the cable is firmly connected.

• Depending on the PoE device, the power supply will stop when the power demand exceeds the total power limit for all PoE ports.

Refer to the operating instructions of the PoE device in use.

• When misalignment of the preset positions occurred while the camera is in use, misalignment will be corrected using the position refresh function.

The position refresh function can be assigned to the schedule so that misalignment can be corrected periodically.

In some situations, reconfigure the preset positions.

• When the camera position is moved after turning on the power of the camera, the camera may stop in the process of panning/tilting and mechanical noise will come out from the camera.

Execute the refresh position function from the

[Initialization] tab of the "Maintenance" page.

• This may be caused by noise.

Check the exogenous noise level around the camera.
