CHAPTER I SYSTEM INTRODUCTION
1.1 Product Description
The information in this manual provides installation and setup procedures for the
V940D series network cameras.
The V940D Series Dome Camera uses a progressive scan CMOS sensor with an
internal HD motorized zoom lens. The camera has an internal Smart IR
technology that provides 98 ft/30m IR distance. The IR LEDs output power can
be adjusted automatically according to the brightness of the scene so that the IR
LEDs do not work at full capacity. The power consumption of the complete unit
is greatly lowered and the service life is lengthened.
V940D Series offers 2MP cameras and 4MP cameras; the 4MP cameras can
support up to 2592×1520@20fps video output. All cameras use H.265/H.264/MJPEG encoding, providing output with excellent definition and color
reproduction, more detailed and accurate information and the accuracy of smart
analysis that can, effectively, be guaranteed.
V940D Series cameras boast smart functions, including camera tampering, to
detect if the camera/lens has been moved, blocked, low/high brightness or
defocused; intrusion detection, providing protection for key areas; and line cross
detection, providing border protection, which are important features for many
enterprises. These cameras can be widely used in sites that demand high
definition image quality in low lighting environments, such as ordinary buildings,
supermarkets, hotels, shops, parks, schools, factories, warehouses, underground
parking lots, etc.
The compact design makes it easy to install and provides 3-axis adjustment, for
easy adjustment of the monitoring angle.

1.6 Notes
1. After login, first perform network settings. The gateway IP address should be
set as that of the connected network camera.
2. The IP address cannot conflict with that of other devices; if there are conflicts,
the camera cannot be viewed.
3. If the camera utilizes a PoE power supply, connect equipment strictly
according to the parameters of the Power Supply Switcher. Additionally, a
practical test of maximum network cable length for the Power Supply
Switcher must be performed, to avoid camera failure caused by insufficient
power supplied to the Power Supply Switcher or to avoid the harm to the
Switcher.
These units should only be installed by a qualified technician using approved
materials in conformance with federal, state, and local codes. Read these
instructions thoroughly before beginning an installation. Always refer to Vicon’s
website to assure you have the most up-to-date manual, www.vicon-security.com.
The camera is supplied with an accessory kit that includes mounting hardware
(screws, anchors and grommets), an RJ-45 connector protective cover, a power
connector (2-pin screw terminal), replacement/spare locking screws (screws that
secure the camera module in its cradle), a BNC cable connector that allows
connection of spot monitor and an Allen tool to loosen the screws.

2.3 Installing and Adjusting Camera
Select a location that is clear of obstacles and can support the weight of the unit.
Exercise maximum caution when installing the unit to the wall or ceiling the unit
falling can result in injuries and accidents. As a failsafe against falling, attach the
unit by chain, wire cable or other safety restraint to an appropriate anchor point.
Step 1: Prepare the mounting holes
To provide for cable management, the camera can be mounted to a back box,
model V940D-BOX or using an adapter plate to allow mounting to a 4x4
electrical box, model V940-PLATE.
Note: Make sure there is room for a cable routing hole at the location and drill a
hole to route the cables. Cabling should be routed to the installation location.
There is a desiccant bag in the dome. Do not remove this.
11
The V940D-BOX is supplied with a mounting template and hardware necessary
to mount it. Using the mounting template, prepare the three mounting holes.
Secure the box to the surface using the screws and anchors supplied or hardware
appropriate for the mounting surface. There are three cable access holes provided,
one on the side and two on the rear. Route the cables through one of these access
holes.

Loosen the three screws on the clear dome assembly to remove the clear bubble.
Note that there is a bag of desiccant inserted in the camera assembly; do NOT
remove this. Secure the camera dome to the standoffs in the back box using the
screws and washers provided in the accessory kit.
The V940-PLATE can be used to mount the camera dome to a standard 4x4
electrical box. Refer to the drawing below.
Step 2: Adjust the camera angle
Loosen the locking screws, adjust the camera angle and direction to the desired
position and then tighten the screws.
12
Re-install the clear dome assembly to the camera and secure with the screws.
Connections

Connecting to the RJ-45
Connect a standard RJ-45 cable to the network port of the network camera.
Generally a cross-over cable is used for direct connection to PC, while a direct
cable is used for connection to a hub. You can also use a router featuring PoE
(Power over Ethernet) to supply power to the camera. An RJ-45 connector
protective cover is supplied in the accessory kit to protect the connection.

Connecting Alarms
There are two dry contact alarm inputs and one alarm output provided; the alarm
output acts as a switch to drive an external device, such as a light. Refer to the
figure below for connection and utilization of alarm input and output.
13
14

Connecting the Power
Connect the power for the network camera, 24 VAC or 12 VDC. For 12 VDC,
connect the positive (+) pole to the ‘+’ position and the negative (-) pole to the ‘-’
position for the DC power.
-
Be careful not to reverse the polarity when connecting a
12 VDC power cable.
-
A router featuring PoE (Power over Ethernet) can also be
used to supply power to the camera.

Connecting Audio
There is one audio input and one audio output. Connect an external line level Mic
to Audio input and a Speaker to Audio output.

CHAPTER III IE BROWSER SETTINGS
3.1 Equipment Connection
V940D series camera can be connected directly to a computer or a network.
Note: Check that the connection is correct and secure before power-on.
3.2 Software Installation
The network camera is designed for use on an Ethernet network and requires an
IP address for access. Most networks today have a DHCP server that
automatically assigns IP addresses to connected devices. By the factory default,
your camera is set to obtain the IP address automatically via DHCP server. If
your network does not have a DHCP server the camera will us a link local IP,
i.e. 169.254.x.x.
If DHCP is enabled and the product cannot be accessed, run the Discovery Tool
utility to search for and allocate an IP address for the camera. The Discovery
Tool (IPCConfig.exe) can be found on Vicon’s website, www.viconsecurity.com, on the Software Downloads page for Vicon cameras.
Note: The approved browser for the camera is Internet Explorer*.
Depending on the version of Windows and IE, your screens may be slightly
different but similar in function.
Connect the network camera to the network and power up.
Start IPCConfig. The main window displays and the devices connected to the
network will display. Right click on the camera IP to open a browser. A login will
display.
*Supports Internet Explorer 8.0 or above, however, IE 10 or above is required for full functionality,
including the file upgrade function.

be selected for the major stream on the Live View for it to display here.
49
Resolution for H.265/H.264 major stream:
The resolution of the 4 MP camera is up to 2592×1520, with 2560×1440,
2048×1520, 2304×1296, 1920×1080, 1280×960 and 1280×720 options.
The resolution of 2 MP camera is up to 1920×1080, with 1280×960 and
1280×720 options.
Resolution for H.265/H.264 minor stream:
The resolution is up to 1920×1080, with 1280×960, 1280×720,
720×576/720×480, 704×576/704×480, 640×480, 352×288/352×240, 320×240
and closed (turn off) options.
Resolution for third stream:
For the third stream, the stream type can be set as H.264, H.265 and MJPEG.
The resolution can be 640×480/352×240/320×240.
Frame Rate: This is the number of compressed frames produced by the camera
per second. The larger the frame rate is, the better the image continuity will be,
but the CPU performance is lowered. The smaller the frame rate is, the worse the
image continuity will be, but the CPU can handle more events.
The maximum frame rate for H.265 and H.264 is 30fps. The maximum frame
rate for MJPEG is 5fps.
The Max. Encoding Capacity of 4 MP camera is
2592×1520@20fps+720×480@30fps+ MJPEG640×480@5fps.
The Max. Encoding Capacity of 2 MP camera is 1080P@30fps+720P@30fps+
MJPEG 640×480@5fps.
GOP number: GOP number is the ratio of I frame (complete image) to P frame
(changes in image) in compressed video images. The larger the value is, the less
the data quantity is and the less network resource it occupies.
Max. GOP number can be set to 60.
Smart Codec: Select Off/Low/Middle/High. This determines the level of bit
rate reduction.
Bit Rate: There are 2 modes of bit rate: variable rate (VBR) and constant rate
(CBR).
50
With variable bit rate, the system can automatically adjust the bandwidth of the
images per the complexity of the images. In practical use, the complexity of the
video images varies constantly, as the details of the scene and the moving speed
change. If the video includes too much detail and images in it move fast, then the
bandwidth it uses will be larger. If not, the bandwidth is smaller. If the Bit Rate
is set as “Constant bit rate,” then the images are transferred by fixed bandwidth
capacity, no matter how the complexity of the images changes.
Bit Rate: If “VBR” is selected, the upper limit of bit rate has to be set; if
“CBR” is selected, the stream size will be fixed and the stream size is defined
in the “Bit Rate.” For major stream, the bit rate upper limit can be
256kbps~10000kbps; for minor stream, the bit rate upper limit can be
256Kbps~2000Kbps.
Image Quality: Set under MJPEG (third) stream. Options: Highest, High,
Average, Low and Lowest. The higher the image quality is, the more bandwidth
it will use.
Be sure to save settings before leaving the interface or cancel any changes made.
