rate, and the size of stream, etc. Users can select the video stream type built in the system as well as select
the combination of multi-bit stream types. The default stream 0 is the main stream and the stream 1 is the
slave stream. The stream 2 can be CVBS analog output or HDMI HD digital output.
(Fig.3-1-16)
Stream types: The video coding types built-in the system include dual-stream, triple-stream, dual-stream
24/69
+ CVBS analog output, and dual-stream HDMI HD digital output, etc. If it is required to be tested via
CVBS(That is, BNC interface), please select the video code type with CVBS output. For different video camera
models, the highest definition combination supported by main stream is different. Please refer to Appendix D.
D1 Format Selection: Image resolution supports 720 * 576 or 704*576, user can choose according to
actual application, by default "720 * 576".
Stream Encryption: support "standard data flow" or "non-standard (encryption) data flow", the user can
choose according to the actual application demand. When selecting "standard data flow", the back-end video
files can be played by general players; If selecting the "non-standard (encryption) data stream", the back-end
video files can be played only by special players.
Frame rate: There are many types of frame rate. Full frame rate represents the real-time level with the
highest of 25 frames (PAL mode) or 30 frames (NTSC mode), and the 1/10 level with the lowest of 2 frames
(PAL mode) or 3 frames (NTSC mode).
Coding types: There are two options: video stream and composite stream. The video stream contains no
audio. However, the composite stream includes video and audio.
Bit rate mode: It includes two types: fixed bit rate and limited bit rate. Users can select the size of the bit
rate, and also can self-define the upper bound of the bit rate.
Image quality: It sets up 6 grades from normal to the best. Normally if the image quality is prior without
considering the bandwidth occupation, it can set up to be the best; if the image quality and the bandwidth
(bit rate) are both under consideration, it can set up to be better or even better.
Bit rate upper bound: 32Kbps~2048Kbps. User can self-define the higher bit rate.
Custom bit rate: When the bit rate type is limited bit rate, users can self-define the upper bound of the
bit rate. For Full HD (1920x1080P), the bit rate is recommended to be 4~6Mbps(4096~6144Kbps); for
HD(1280x720) to be 2~4Mbps(2048~4096Kbps); and for Full D1(720x576) or 960H(960x576) to be 1
~3Mbps(1024~3072Kbps). The highest bit rate can be 8Mbps. The set bit rate cannot exceed the highest
upper bound of the bit rate under each individual definition.
 Note:
1) Compression format: The main stream is default to use H.264 compression format. The slave stream can
select H.264 and MJPEG. When the slave stream is H.264 compression format, the highest definition
supported is Full D1(720x576); when the slave stream is in MJPEG compression format, the highest definition
supported is HD(1280x720). The slave stream in MJPEG compression format is commonly used for the camera
to capture images with higher definition.
2) It is required to save parameters in “Detailed settings -> System parameters -> Advanced settings” and
restart settings after the video stream type is modified.
3) Three mega-pixel and five mega-pixel cameras only have Stream 0 when it is in its highest definition.

3.1.12 Motion Detection
Select “VMD” label on the right for users to start the camera’s video motion detection. If the camera is
26/69
installed at the places like corridor, door or windows, the image pictures are normally static relatively. Once
the camera detects any object in movement in the video, it shall start recording or generate alarm linkage or
output.
The video area on the left is the video motion detection area. Users can use their mouse to draw up at
most five areas in the video area to be the targeted motion detection areas. When detecting any element in
motion in the video, the corresponding associated alarm linkage shall be triggered. If it is required to redraw
the areas for detection, users can click “Clear areas” button on the right.
(Fig.3-1-18)
On the right are the settings for the motion detection for defending and the alarm linkage.
Motion threshold: The default value is 1 (The range of the value is 0 - 100). The motion threshold value
is for measuring the ratio of objects in motion in the selected areas. Smaller the value is, smaller the ratio of
objects in motion is.
Sensitivity: The default value is 3 (The range of the value is 0-5). The sensitivity is used for evaluating the
level of sensitivity of motion detection. Larger the value is, higher the sensitivity is. Even small motions can be
detected.
 Note:
A very low sensitivity may cause failure to report (No alarm when there is any object in motion in the
video). A very high sensitivity may cause false alarms (Any subtle motion like leaf or mice may trigger alarm.)
The motion threshold and sensitivity need to be adjusted in an actual application according to user
environment. If the values cannot be ensured, please keep the default values or increase the sensitivity.
27/69
(Fig.3-1-19)
The time phase for motion detection can be set based on requirements. Users can set up four time
phases, and also can copy the set time phases to the areas where the same time phase is set for defending.
Meanwhile, the process methods are also selectable when any objects in motion are detected. The process
methods for alarm include uploading to the management center, linking the PTZ preset point, linking the scan
track, preset points patrolling, snapshot, recording or triggering the camera’s Relay outlet, etc., as shown in
the figure below:
(Fig.3-1-20)
3.1.13 Advanced Functions
Click “Advanced functions” label on the right to set up color mode, white balance, wide dynamic mode
and noise reduction modes, etc.
28/69
(Fig.3-1-21)
Optional Mode: To make camera used in certain special circumstances, different time periods of
illumination differences, the user can set the video parameters for different time periods, so that the video
image to achieve the best results for different time periods. Optional mode defaults to "default initial
parameters", the user can select IR-CUT to handover parameters, selectable mode 1, mode, mode 3 and so
on, "IR-CUT handover parameters" configure the video parameters and advanced parameters under the
selected mode, when enabling the selected mode, the camera will call the parameters of switching mode
when the IR-CUT is switched; "Optional mode" to configure the video parameters, advanced parameters and
time period of the model for users, after this mode is enabled, when the camera time matches time period of
the optional mode, the camera will call the parameter of the mode.
Anti-flickering mode: Two modes - 50HZ and 60 Hz which can be set based on local power frequency.
Color mode: Two modes – PC and TV. Choose PC mode when connecting a PC monitor and choose TV
mode when connecting a TV monitor.
White balance: The basic idea of white balance is that “Return a white object into white no matter
under any kind of light source”. The color offset appearing under certain light source can be compensated by
enforcing the corresponding complementary color so as to make the camera images restore their original
images under various color temperature as much as possible. Normally we represent the different color hue
under different light conditions to be different color temperature. It defaults to be automatic. When choosing
auto, images are automatically adjusted by the camera’s 3A system. The system has other modes built-in:
incandescent lamp, D4000, D5000, daylight, cloudy day, flash light, fluorescent lamp, fluorescent lamp H, and
underwater, etc.
B/W mode: It defaults to be auto. The camera can automatically switch between color and black/white
29/69
according to the ambient illumination. It can also be a fixed mode, either choosing compulsory color or
compulsory black/white.
Backlight compensation: Backlight compensation can effectively compensate the defect of dark subjects
when taking pictures in a backlight situation, providing the proper exposure for the subjects. After the
backlight compensation, the objects in backlight can be seen, but the things behind the objects are not
concerned. It defaults to be off.
Image Mode: In the image mode: General mode, HDR mode and HISO mode are optional, common
cameras default to the general mode; when the camera is wide dynamic camera, you need select HDR mode
(For details, see "WDR"); When the camera is super low-light, you need select HISO mode, in dim light
environment you can still see relatively clear picture. As below:
Common Low Illumination
Ultra Low Illumination
(Fig.3-1-22)
Wide Dynamic: Wide Dynamic technology used in high contrast (outdoor strong light illumination and
indoor weak light illumination) case, shooting high-contrast, backlit and glare and light refraction, to enable
the camera to see the characteristics of the image. The main applications are to see out of window from
indoor, parking exit and entrance, entrance hall and other business. When the relative lower brightness of the
regions under backlit and high luminance regions and shadows under strong light source irradiation (sunlight,
lamps or reflectors, etc.) exist in the image, the camera output image will appear bright areas for overexposed
to become white. The dark areas become black due to lack of exposure, seriously affecting the image quality.
Camera in the same scene for the performance of the brightest area and dark area is the presence of
limitations, this limitation is often known as "dynamic range." Wide dynamic has different options: Off, Auto,
Mode 1, Mode 2, Mode 3, Mode 4, and custom modes etc different wide dynamic adjustment range. When
the camera supports only digital wide dynamic, user can choose Auto, Mode 1, Mode 2, Mode 3 and Mode 4
and other options according to the actual scene of wide dynamic entries; when the cameras support
hardware level wide dynamic, users need to select "Custom mode", while the image mode selected for HDR,
according to the environmental user can adjust the parameter values of exposure compensation and light
exposure compensation (range was between 1 and 254), as below:
(Fig.3-1-23)
30/69
Digital WDR and Hardware WDR:

HDR
(Fig.3-1-24)
Shutter speed: Auto, 1/25s ~ 1/10000s. Users can select an appropriate shutter speed according to
circumstances for monitoring. Higher electric shutter speed is normally used for taking photos of objects in
fast movement, e.g. vehicles on the road. If the shutter speed is not fast enough, the objects in motion may
look like smeared or blurred when taking photos of objects in fast motion.
3D noise reduction: The product introduces 3D-MCTF (motion-compensated filtering) for noise
reduction. This algorithm analyzes the time and space information of each pixel in each frame’s data so as to
effectively filter static and dynamic noises. It has trivial effects on the image definition and sharpness. The
filtered pictures can not only be clearer but also helpful for improving the image compression rate – because
the limited bandwidth is not wasted on the encoding of noises. The default option is to be off. Users can
choose from strongest, strong, normal and weak. After 3D noise reduction is set to be strongest, it is possible
to cause the smear images. The effect of 3D noise reduction is shown as below:
3D DNR ON
3D DNR OFF
(Fig.3-1-25)
Secondary Noise Reduction: It is an enhanced 2D noise reduction (2D-DNR) technology, which is for the
single image noise. It can adjust sharpness and gain, it is a comprehensive algorithms of noise reduction.
Default is “Auto”, optional value is “1-10”, number indicates the upper limit. When in “ Auto” mode, system
can auto process the image noise according to scenes and environmental illumination. When there is “1”, it
keeps high sharpness, seldom handle with the image noise. This is a way of noise reduction to keep the edges
of objects clear. When select “10”, it process the noise reduction at maximum, image will be soft and smooth,
details of parts will looks vague. There is a limit for Secondary Noise Reduction, “Auto” mode will not exceed
the max value though in different scenes (day &night). For some special occasions, maintaining the maximum
value throughout the day is required. User can enable “Force” which is behind the Secondary Noise
Reduction. If so, system will reduce the noise according to the upper limit.
Actual use need to base on different scenes, 3D Noise Reduction and Secondary Noise Reduction will be
used in combination. 3D Noise Reduction is usually set “Weak”, Secondary Noise Reduction is usually set
“Auto” or “5”. For best image effect, user can adjust according to scenes.
31/69
AGC: AGC gain can be set to be auto, 6db, 12db, 18db, 24db, 30db, 36db, and 42db. The AGC gain is
adjustable when the electric shutter speed is set to be any parameters except “auto”.
The electronic shutter is usually used together with AGC gain. Higher the electronic shutter speed is,
larger the AGC gain or the camera’s brightness are, so that the luminous flux into the shutter can be increased
and the image becomes clearer. Moreover, the network camera has the function of electronic shutter
automatically adjustable, that is, having the shutter speed manually set as the lower bound and having the
value of the AGC gain as the upper bound. It can automatically increase the shutter speed to be one that is
optimal for photo taking.
Image rotation: There are possibilities that the camera is installed upside down due to various reasons.
It is able to set the camera to rotate its image 180 degree or 270 degree. It is not necessary to dismantle the
shield cover to re-install the camera and the upside-down image is restored to be normal.
In other monitoring circumstances, like traffic junctions that require watching red and green light,
supermarket cashiers, counter of financial business, narrow and long corridors or passages, the area that each
camera can monitor is limited by the environment if the camera is installed horizontally in the 16:9 form, and
the advantage of HD wide screen is not in use. This network camera has images' 90 degree rotation function
built in and can adjust the image display to be 9:16. It is able to use the same camera to watch a wider area.
16:9
9:16
(Fig.3-1-26)
Exposure compensation: 50 – 250 for selection. Exposure compensation is a way for exposure
control. If a scene is complicated and its ambient light source is relatively dark, the exposure
compensation shall be increased to make the definition of the images distinctive.
Strong Inhibition and Exposure Mode: HSBLC optional: ON/OFF, generally use with wide dynamic.
Exposure mode is divided into dark exposure, the central exposure and average exposure, and
manually selected exposure area, mainly to enhance the brightness of the image in low light areas,
1,2,3,4,5 figures represent the brightness enhancement level, as shown below:
32/69
Fig.3-1-27)
ICR mode: Due to the reason that infrared light of different wave lengths mixed in visible light
would affect the image effects, e.g. image blur and indentation. To add Auto ICR (infrared cut removal)
in front of the image sensor can effectively reduce affect of infrared light. In daytime or when the
light is sufficient, the IR-cut filter is switched on to cut off infrared light to avoid the image color offset;
at night or when light is poor, the IR pass filter should be switched on so as to use infrared light to
improve the night view of the camera and maintain better image quality. The camera with the Auto
ICR is called Day and Night Camera.
The ways to change IR cut filter include manual, auto, timing or alarm. When auto is set, the
camera automatically makes its decision and adjusts the switching of the filters based on light.
When timing is set, the camera can set up the time for switching on/off the IR cut (As shown below).
When alarm is set, the ambient light illumination can be detected by the light sensor under the
camera lens so as to link the switch-on of the IR cut filter.
(Fig.3-1-28)
3.1.14 Device Information
The “Device " label at the right of the video display area can set up the name and system of the network
camera.
Device name: The device name is an identification name of the device in the network and can be set up
by users.
Other information: The information that is only for reference at the time of upgrading, like serial
number, MAC address, hardware version, software version and WEB version, etc.。

3.1.15 Privacy Mask
Video surveillance is often related to the privacy of the region and areas to prevent blocking lens, such as
in a private window, password input areas of ATM teller machines or treasury etc., in order to protect privacy,
we can add black mosaic to these specific privacy in the video block area; another example, at some
important access, if in need to prevent the lens is artificially blocked, or by other objects, you can enable the
alarm linkage, upload to management center for processing. Click on the video display area on the right side
"Privacy" tab, then the WEB interface switches to mesh segmentation privacy area and occlusion alarm
settings window, as shown below:
(Fig.3-1-30)
Privacy Mask: Hold down the left mouse button and drag to change the size of the area of privacy, users
can set up four different privacy zones. After setting, right click on the "Settings" button to save the settings.
Click "Clear Area" button to redraw the region. Right click on "Enable privacy mask" check box, the user can
turn on or off the privacy mask function. Not enabled by default.

the video is blocked below the video flashes " Blocking Alarm ..." words.
User can set blocking alarm time as needed, can set up four time periods, you can also copy a set time
34/69
period to the region with the same setting time. You can also choose process mode when detecting blocking,
alarm handling methods are uploading to management center, linkage alarm output. As below:
(Fig.3-1-31)
Sensitivity: The default value of 0 (lowest), an optional range of 0 to 5. Sensitivity is a measure of the
degree of blocking sensitivity; the greater the value is, the higher the sensitivity is. The higher the sensitivity
is, the smaller block amplitude may be detected.
 Note:
Low sensitivity may cause false negatives (no alarm when in video block), the high sensitivity may cause
false positives (such as leaves, flies and other minor blocking can trigger an alarm). In practical applications
the sensitivity needs to be adjusted according to the application environment.

Network interface parameters
Configure the camera’s IP address, sub-network mask, gateway, DNS and backup DNS. After completing
the configuration, it is required to save the configuration in the “Advanced settings” and restart the camera.
This device supports DHCP protocol (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). DHCP is a network protocol
for LAN. Using UDP protocol is to automatically assign IP addresses for internal network devices. After starting
DHCP, the network camera can automatically obtain an IP address via DHCP server in the network (e.g. router,
three-tier switch or NVR, etc. It is required to start DHCP in server.). The DHCP service end can be set to be
automatic assignment (Once a DHCP user end successfully rents the IP address at the first time and will use
the address forever.), or dynamic assignment (when the DHCP user end successfully rents the IP address, the
address is not permanent. The user end must release the IP address when the lease is invalid so that other
devices can use the address.). The setting in detail can refer to the manual of router or switch.
The system default IP is 192.168.1.4. Users can freely assign IP address, sub-network mask and gateway,
etc., for the camera. However, they must be in the same network segment as that of the local machine’s IP.
Wrong settings may cause unsuccessful connection with the network camera. Please refer to the section 3.3
Modifying IP address and Chapter 5 Admin Tool of the manual about retrieving the network camera.
Especially after starting DHCP, it is only able to retrieve the network camera IP address via Admin Tools
provided with the device.。
(Fig.5-2-1)
Remote alarm receiving center
After enabling the remote alarm receiving center, users can receive the information like status and alarm
from the management center. The information is sent actively by the network camera toward the
management center. This function defaults to be off. If enabling the function, users are required to input the
address and port of the server of the management center. The port of the management center defaults to be
5005.
48/69
(Fig.5-2-2)
Remote access port
The WEB port is used for user-end systems to connect the WEB pages of devices. It defaults to be 80. If
users modify the WEB port, e.g. 8080, it is required to add the port behind the IP address when accessing the
network camera, e.g. http://192.168.1.4:8080.
The data port is used for user-end systems to connect data and controls. It defaults to be 6002. When a
user end needs to access multiple network cameras within another gateway from outside, it is required to
change the data port to be another port number for distinguishing. If it is not necessary, please do not change
it. When it needs to cross gateway or firewall to access any cameras, please open the WEB port 80 and the
data port 6002 at the gateway or firewall. Please refer to Appendix B Port mapping.
(Fig.5-2-3)
 Note:
1) When the IP address or port number is changed, it is required to save the settings in the “Advanced
setting” and restart the camera.
2) If the local machine’s IP address is changed, users must use the new IP address to log on the WEB
management interface of the network camera.
3) Currently this network camera can only support IPv4 address, not IPv6 address.
4) The gateway is the same as that of a LAN in the user-end for the best.
PPPoE Dial-up Setting
When PPPoE dial-up function enabled, the network cameras can achieve networking. PPPoE with DDNS
function, which enables remote users to access camera via the Internet. Using PPPoE function within the LAN
can effectively solve the problem of ARP attacks. Filling PPPoE account and password for dial-up. As shown
below:
((Fig.5-2-4)
DDNS Setting
The connection via PPPoE dialing is normally the dynamic IP address. The IP address obtained after each
dialing is different. For the convenience of remote access, users can realize the parsing and binding of the
dynamic IP address and domain name via DDNS (dynamic domain name service) so that users can only use
the domain name to access the network device no matter how the IP address is changed. Users can set up
49/69
their own DDNS (dynamic domain name) parsing server to provide the domain name parsing service for their
own network cameras. The server address is the address of the dynamic domain name server. The username
and password are authorized by the dynamic domain name service.
(Fig.5-2-5)
 Note:
1) DDNS default to be off.
2) If users use a router for ADSL dialing, it is able to use the built-in DDNS parsing function in the router.
There is no need to set up a DDNS server.
3) ADSL network provided by telecommunication companies is normally a non-symmetrical network
speed network. Its upstream bandwidth is far slower than the downstream bandwidth, only 512Kbps. There
may have the problems like severe delay and pause when transmitting HD video in this kind of networks.
When using ADSL network as the transmission line, the video definition transmitted is recommended not to
exceed the Full D1 (720X576) format.
Multicast Function
It refers to a network communication of a single multicast sender corresponding to a plurality of
receivers. Multicast technology by transmitting a single information flow to multiple receivers, it can reduce
network communication flows when multiple receivers listen to or view same resource at the same time.
Source camera sends only one copy of the data, this data destination address is the multicast group
addresses; all receivers of multicast group can receive copies of the same data, and only the host of multicast
group (target host) can receive the data, other network hosts can not receive.
(Fig. 5-2-6)
Client Connect Type: support Auto, TCP, Udp, Dialing, MultiCast, MultiCastA, the default is "Auto";
Multicast IP: the default is 234.5.6.7, special users need to modify the multicast group address, refer to
the definition of network multicast group address;
Multicast Port: the default is “6903”;
Multicast Mode: the default is: use the specified multicast address.

The camera by default does not support for third-party protocol, to support a third-party protocol.
Please "Configuration – Extra Set" page, in the device extension parameter select built-in third-party
protocol, click on the "Set " , then click the upper right “Save” to save.
Regarding Parameter settings of third-party protocol, please refer to the documentation provided by the
third-party protocol.

Appendix A FAQ
Q: What to do if my network camera cannot be connected?
A: Please firstly look at the random label to check if the internal IP of your network camera is modified. If the
IP address being modified, use Admin Tool to retrieve and re-setup the IP address; or check whether the IP of
the PC for management is in the same network segment as that of the network camera. It can also refer to
the section 3.2 Reset to reset the network camera.
Q: The connection is successful using IE or user-end but there is no image shown and the image display
widow is in black?
A: Please check whether there is any computer having the same IP address as that of the network camera IP
in the network. Then check if the display card drive or DirectX are properly installed.
Q: How to access a monitoring audio?
A: Please use active monitoring sensor or active microphone to access the camera’s A-In and use active sound
box to access the camera’s A-Out inlet.
Q: What should I do if I modify the original Web port and data port of my network camera and cannot
access the network camera?
A: Please use Admin Tool to retrieve and modify the ports.
Q:Can I modify my network camera’s IP if my network camera IP address is not in the same network
segment of the management computer's ?
A: Yes, please use Admin Tool to retrieve and modify it.
Q: I want to re-assign IP addresses for my dozens of network cameras. What should I do?
A: Please use Admin Tool management tool. Open the tool to retrieve the network cameras available in the
network, choose all the network cameras for modification, and click “Configuring all the selected network
camera information” to enter the network address segment in the prompted window, and then click
“Confirm”.
Q: How to assign IP address if the number of my network cameras is over 250?
A: You can use the second-class IP, for instance, 10.0.0.1 (The sub-network mask: 255.255.0.0). Please consult
your network administrator in detail for the questions re. these IP addresses.
Q: I received two cameras. Why can only one camera be accessed, not another one?
A: In order to be easy for test, the IP of network cameras are all set to be 192.168.1.4. However, the MAC
address of each camera is different from each other. The operating system shall cache the IP and MAC
address of the last network camera. So the next network camera with the same IP cannot be accessed.
Click “Start -> Run” to enter CMD to open the DOS status window and enter the command arp-a to check the
current ARP information. Please use arp-d to clear up the cached information when changing to another
device with the same IP.

Q: When I use the camera outdoor, the image is in blank. What happens?
A: It is suggested to install and use auto-iris lens outdoor. If using auto-iris lens, please enter the camera’s
WEB management page at the first-time. Click “Advanced setting -> Auto-IRIS Intellectual correction” button.
The device shall start its auto-iris correction. Please restart the device after the correction and the camera can
control the iris of the auto-iris lens in precision.

Appendix B Port Mapping
If it requires connecting an internal network from external networks, it needs to carry out port mapping
at the gateway. Defining a server-end port at the gateway, all the service requests to the port from external
networks shall be transferred to the network camera (Specified by IP address) specified by the gateway. In
such way, users from external networks can successfully access certain network cameras in the LAN without
affecting the network security of the internal LAN. If the gateway is installed on the local host computer, it is
required to carry out port mapping via software. If the gateway is a router, it is required to set up NAT or
virtual service on the router.
Using a TP-Link router as an example, log on the router to select the menu “Transfer rules -> Virtual
service” in the back-end for users to set up the virtual service.
Click “Add new item” button to add the default WEB port 80, data port 6002 and RTSP port 554 for the
network camera.
 Service-end port: The option is for the router to provide the service-end port for the WAN. Please
fill in 80.
 IP address: The server address that is specified for providing the virtual service in LAN. Please fill in
the network camera’s IP address.
 Protocol: The protocol used by the virtual service. The options are: TCP, UDP and ALL. Please choose
ALL.
 Status: It shows the option status to be “Valid” or “Invalid”. Only when the status is valid, the setting
of this option is effective.
The method for adding the 6002 port is the same.

Appendix C Reference for Client Settings
Theoretically, playing 720P HD video format has two ways – software decoding and hardware decoding.
Software decoding is via CPU. Most of the mainstream CPU can do the work. Dual-core CPU can lower the
CPU occupation rate during HD decoding. And hardware decoding can use GPU display card as the main
decoder without occupying too many CPU resources. The advantage of using hardware decoding is to lower
the CUP occupation rate significantly and at the same time reduce 40% of PC’s power consumption. There are
several types of hardware decoding, e.g. DX9 display card of the old generation (GF6/GF7/X1000) also
supports hardware decoding but can only take over the two steps in the decoding process that have low load.
There is not much help for CPU. However, the built-in decoder of DX10 display card of the new generation can
complete the whole process of HD decoding, free CPU thoroughly. This is commonly called hardware
decoding.
