1. TCP/IP:.
AirLive BU-3128 User Manual
18
5. Configuration
- Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4):
MAC address- MAC address stands for Media Access Control address. This is the
unique hardware address of the camera’s network interface.
Obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP)- This is the default setting. In this
mode the camera obtains the IP information from the DHCP server in your network.
Use the following IP address- Activate this option in order to assign a static IP
address to the camera. You need to enter a valid IP address, subnet mask and
default gateway address in the corresponding fields.
Obtain DNS server address automatically - automatically use the DNS server
settings provided by the DHCP server.
Use the following DNS server address- When you disable DHCP, you also need to
provide the camera with valid DNS settings. The Primary DNS server must be filled
out. It is often the same IP address as the Gateway address.
- Internet Protocol Version 6(TCP/IPv6):
IP address- The IPv6 IP address of camera is automatically assigned by converting
the MAC address of the IP camera. User is not able to modify it..
- HTTP:
HTTP port number- The default value is 80 and normally there is no need to change
it.
If you decide to change the http port to a different value; e.g., 1024, you need to do
two things.
First, after saving the settings you need to reboot the camera via the System ->
Initialize menu.
Secondly, after the reboot is completed you need to connect to the camera using the
URL http://camera_ip:portnumber.

2. PPPoE:.
PPPoE is the most common form of connection for DSL-based Internet service.
You can use this function to connect the camera directly to a DSL modem. A
common application for this is where the network camera is installed in a remote
location where no network is present. In the location is a DSL Internet connection
(DSL modem), but no router or any other network infrastructure. You can connect the
camera to the DSL modem and enter your DSL account information in the fields
below.
- PPPoE:
PPPoE- On.
Authentication Type- PAP or CHAP.
IP address- Displays the current IP address obtained from the Internet Service
Provider (ISP). It displays 0.0.0.0 if the camera is not connected to the Internet via
PPPoE.
User ID- Enter the user ID for your DSL service here. The user ID has been given to
you by your ISP.
Password- The password for the DSL account goes here. Re-type the password in
the field.
DNS Server- Typically, your ISP will send DNS Server information to the camera
when it connects. Some ISPs, however, require entering specific DNS servers
manually. In that case you can activate the option “Use the following DNS server
address” and enter the primary and secondary DNS servers in the fields below (not
shown on the screen shot).

the camera time will start to differ from your PC time as time progresses, and
occasional re-synchronization will be necessary.
Manual Setting- Lets you manually enter the time and date. As with the previous
option, the camera’s time will become inaccurate as time passes and you will need to
re-synchronize the time periodically.
Synchronize with NTP- This option is the recommended setting. In this mode, the
camera will synchronize its time settings based on the interval setting (ranging from
once per hour to once per day). The camera obtains the time from the NTP server.
You can use the default value unless your camera is not connected to the Internet, or
if a firewall in your network blocks the outgoing NTP request of the camera. Select
“Manual” and you can enter a different NTP server; e.g., a server in your local
network.
- Time Zone:
Time zone- Select the correct time zone for your location.
Daylight Saving Time- You can define the range of Daylight Saving Time by
activating this option. The camera will adjust the time (move the clock forward or
backward by one hour) depending on the programmed start and end time. If your
camera is not equipped with this feature, you can adjust the time zone manually for
Daylight Saving Time.

Example: The camera is installed in your company; for example, overlooking the
warehouse. In one corner of the warehouse is the break room, where the
employees go for their lunch breaks. In many countries it is not permitted to monitor
the workers during their break. To comply with laws and regulations, you can define
a privacy mask in the break area to ensure that this area
is not being monitored or recorded by the camera.
Click “Add” to create a new privacy mask.
As you can create multiple masks, you need to provide a
name for the mask, and you can define which color you
want to overlay to be. Finally, set the status to “Enabled”
and click “Save” to create and activate the privacy mask
Profile:
The network camera allows the creation of video streaming profiles. For each
profile you can define the video resolution, the viewing area and the video codec
that is to be used. Click “Add” to create a new profile, “Remove” to delete a profile
or “Edit” to modify an existing profile.
- Video Setting:
Encoding- Your network camera can encode video in two different formats. H.264
is the most advanced and efficient codec delivering excellent image quality and a
small video stream size at the same time. Normally, this is your preferred choice.
However, you can also select MJPEG, e.g., for compatibility reasons.
Profile- Encoding application offers you three choices- High, Main and Baseline
profiles.
Resolution- Here you define the video resolution for the profile. Which choices you
have depends on your camera model. Some HD models offer image resolutions of
up to 1920 x 1080 pixels whereas standard definition cameras are limited to 640 x
480 pixels.

Maximum frame rate- Type in the number of frames the camera should generate
per second of video. The higher the value, the smoother the video, but the more
bandwidth is going to be required. Valid entries are 1 to 30.
Quality- You can control the image quality of the video by selecting “Fixed
Quality”(or refers to VBR) and defining the image quality by selecting one of the
following values “Medium,” “Standard,” “Good,” “Detailed” and “Excellent.” Or you
can choose to specify the bit rate (fixed bitrate or CBR) of the video the camera
must not exceed. In this mode the camera varies the image quality automatically to
not exceed the specified maximum. With setting fixed quality plus maximum
bitrates, the camera would try to meet the quality requirement without exceed the
certain bitrates.
- Audio Setting:
Audio Steam- You can select “On” or “Off”.

Day/Night:
Some network cameras are equipped with active IR LEDs providing the ability to
capture video in complete darkness. Note, that if your camera is not equipped
with IR LEDs, this menu will not be available. Also note that some menu items will
vary depending on your camera model.
Infrared cut-off filters are designed to reflect or block mid-infrared wavelengths
while passing visible light. They are often used in network video cameras to block
IR due to the high sensitivity of many camera sensors to near-infrared light. With
the filter in place before the image sensor, the camera will not be able to pick up
IR light, but it generates true color video. Once the IR cut filter is removed, the
camera becomes IR light sensitive and will generate a black and white image –
and it does that even in complete darkness if the IR LEDs are active.

- Day/Night:
IR Cut Filter ModeAuto-- The camera decides when to remove the IR cut filter based on the IR Cut
Filter Threshold you can specify. The switch delay ensures that the camera only
switches the IR Cut Filter after the specified amount of time has passed.
Night Mode-- This is the opposite of the day mode. If this mode is enabled, the
camera always removes the IR cut filter. As a result, the camera will always be IR
sensitive, regardless of the actual light levels, and the image will be rendered in
B/W mode. Using night mode in day light conditions is not recommended as it
leads to a poor image quality with false and washed out colors.
Day Mode-- In this mode the camera does not remove the IR Cut Filter from the
image sensor regardless of any other settings. So only visible light will pass
through and the image will be in color mode.
Schedule-- Select this option, if you wish to control exactly when you want the
camera to engage the night mode. You can use the internal scheduler to define a
time pattern for each day of the week, e.g., no night mode on the weekends, but
night mode from MON to FRI from 21.00 hours to 06.00 hours. The scheduler is
explained in detail later on.
IR Cut Filter Switch Delay- For user to define the time duration (how many
seconds) between IR being turned on or off from the current status.

IR Cut Filter Threshold- Here we use an example to explain how IR cut filter
threshold works. If you set Dark as 30 lux and Bright as 70 lux, that means when
luminance is less than 30 lux, the camera switches to night mode (B/W), and
when luminance is more than 70 lux, the camera switches to day mode (color), if
the luminance is between 30 lux and 70 lux,the camera stays in current mode.
IR ModeAuto-- This ensures that the IR lights go on whenever the IR cut filter has been
removed.
Active-- Keeps the IR LEDs illuminated regardless of the state of the IR cut filter.
To ensure maximum life of the IR LEDs, this option shouldn’t be used, unless your
camera is installed in a dark environment which requires IR lighting at all times.
Inactive-- When this is selected, the camera will never active its IR LEDs, even if
the night mode is enabled (the IR Cut Filter has been removed). If you have your
own 850nm IR lighting in place already, then you will not need to use the camera’s
integrated IR LEDs and can therefore turn the IR LEDs off.
Schedule-- Select this option, if you wish to control exactly when IR LED turning
on and off by following a certain schedule setting.

The image enhancement controls consist of standard video settings, which you know
from a great variety of products. Click on “Video” to see the camera live video while you
adjust the settings to your liking.
- White Balance:
Color Tone- Choose between “Cool” and “Warm”. Normally you want to set this to real
as it provides the best representation of natural colors.
Auto White Balance- This parameter controls how the camera interprets colors. You
can choose from the following values: “Auto,” “Hold Current”, “Fluorescent,”
“Incandescent,” “Sunny,” “Cloudy”, “Sun Shade” and “Manual” You should select the
value that best represents the environment the camera is installed in. You can
alsoleave the default value “Auto,” as it typically delivers very good results.
- Exposure Setting:
Exposure Frequency- There are four values: “Auto,” “50Hz,” “60Hz” and “Hold
Current.” If your camera is installed so that it’s facing outside, you should select “Auto.”
If your camera is installed indoors, you must select the appropriate light frequency
(either 50 or 60 Hz; e.g., in the US select 60 Hz, in Germany, Poland or Italy select 50
Hz). The hold current option fixes the current exposure settings.
Automatic Exposure- You can manually set the exposure value, which ranges from
0-100 (dark to bright). The default value is 25 and typically provides good results.
Exposure Time- You can define the minimum and maximum exposure time of the
camera’s shutter here. We recommend using the smallest exposure time (e.g.,
1/10000 sec) for the min value as it ensures the camera will generate crisp images
during day time conditions in which even moving objects appear sharp and in focus. As
for the max value, the bigger the value, the longer the camera keeps the shutter open
in low light conditions allowing more light to fall onto the image sensor. As a result, the
camera can capture images even in very dark environments. The downside is that
moving objects will appear blurred as the move while the camera’s shutter is open.
Gain- The camera is equipped with an electronic gain mechanism which helps
capture image in dark conditions. The higher the gain, the brighter the image, but the
downside is that the image contains more noise.
Low Light Behavior- When enabled, this opens allows additional control over the
camera when it is running in night mode.
Backlight Compensation (BLC)- In images where a bright light source is behind the
subject of interest, the subject would normally appear in silhouette. BLC allows the
camera to adjust the exposure of the entire image to properly expose the subject in the
foreground. The resulting image may appear overexposed in the background; however,
the object of interest is now properly lit.

options. Note that depending on your camera model, the options will vary.
Motion Detection- The camera monitors the video image for movements and
triggers an alert when it detects motion. Motion detection needs to be configured
first for that to work.
Tampering Detection- The camera can detect if it’s being tampered with, e.g., if
someone covers the lens, and triggers an alert when this happens. Tampering
detection needs to be configured for that to work.

Digital Input- If your camera is equipped with digital inputs (see hardware
installation guide), then you can use them as a trigger mechanism. A common
example would be to use 3rd party motion detection sensors that trigger the camera
to start a recording.
Periodical- This trigger type can be used if you want the camera to perform the
same action over and over again, based on a time period. A typical application
would be to have the camera refresh an image on your web site every 60 seconds.
- Action:
After you have selected the tripper type, you now have to define the action(s). In other
words, what do you want the camera to do if the event occurs?
Send Image- Instructs the camera to send out images. When selected, you need to
specify whether you want to use FTP, network storage or SD card. You may need
to set up these servers first (see previous section) in order to use them here.
Send Notification- This action type uses the HTTP event server. You can use this
to have the camera trigger a script on a server.
Activate Digital Output - If your camera is equipped with digital outputs, then you
can use them to perform an action. You can specific how long you want the camera
to trigger the event once you have selected Digital 1.
PTZ Action - This action type will make the camera to move to/point at a certain
preset position or start run a certain predefined tour when the event occurs.
- Schedule:
Here you can define when you want this action to be active. You can choose between
“Always” or a schedule that you have defined (see “Schedule” a few pages down).

3. Motion Detection.
The network camera is able to monitor the video footage for movements and trigger an
alert if motion has been detected. This motion detection does not utilize passive infrared,
but instead it relies on a frame by frame comparison of the video footage the camera
captures.
You can define more than one motion detection area. The example above shows that
so-called hotspot has been created for the area of the window. When you set up an
event for motion detection, you can select which motion detection area you wish to
monitor.
Threshold and sensitivity will need to be set up so that you don’t miss important events
and are not flooded by false alarms either. Finding the right values will require some trial
and error. There are no standard values that simply “will work” as it depends very much
on the actual location and light levels. Generally speaking, increasing the sensitivity
while lowering the threshold will generate more false alarms but it ensures that you will
not miss an important event. Doing the opposite will of course have the opposite effect:
Fewer false alarms at an increased risk or missing an important event.

This can be used, as an example, to only activate motion detection between 9 pm and 6
am during business days and around the clock on the weekends. You can set up
individual schedules for each event type, so that motion detection is activated between
7 pm and 7 am, but tampering detection is only activated between 10 pm and 4 am.

UPnP:
- UPnP:
UPnP stands for Universal Plug and Play. A UPnP-enabled device, such as your
network camera, announces its presence in the local network to other computers that
support UPnP as well. The operating systems Windows XP, Windows Vista and
Windows 7/8 support UPnP. When the network camera is connected to the network,
Windows will alert the computer user of the presence of the new device (a new icon will
be added to your My Network Places folder) and lets the user connect to the device
instantaneously.
Furthermore, UPnP has the ability to instruct the router or firewall to open certain ports,
so that a party from the outside world can contact a device on the local network, such
as the network camera.
UPnP port forwarding is not supported by all routers, however. So, depending on your
router or firewall, you may or may not be able use this function, also, opening ports in
any router or firewall increases the risk of an intruder successfully breaking in to your
network. UPnP automates this task and leaves it to the devices to negotiate which
ports to open. Since this is done without any form of authentication, enabling UPnP
port forwarding in your router is not necessarily a good idea in a security-sensitive
environment. You can always open individual ports in your router or firewall manually.
In the camera UPnP is enabled by default. UPnP port forwarding is disabled by default.
57
AirLive BU-3128 User Manual
7. Appendix
When you enable UPnP port forwarding, the screen will reveal additional options.
These are the ports the camera will instruct the router to open. Depending on the
camera model, you may see different ports. The new H.264 Megapixel cameras have a
simpler port model and require fewer ports than the other models. Normally there is no
need to change any of these ports, unless you know that a port is already in use by a
different device or application.

DDNS:
If you are not planning on connecting to the network camera over a remote
connection, but only in your local network, you can skip this section.
Dynamic DNS is a network service that provides the capability for a networked
device, such as a router or computer system, to notify a domain name server to
change, in real time (ad-hoc) the active DNS configuration of its configured host
names, addresses or other information stored in DNS.
In simpler terms: Users of private Internet services are often faced with a problem:
The ISP typically changes the IP address assigned to the user based on a time
interval. This may be as often as once every 24 hours or as seldom as once every
30 days. For the average user this is not a problem. However, if you want to be able
to connect to the local camera (e.g., in your house) from a remote location (e.g., the
office), you need to know under which Internet address the camera can be reached.
However, you don’t know what the current Internet IP address is. So you are
beginning to see the problem.
DDNS solves this problem by allowing you to create a domain name for your home
network, which you can always use to access the camera. To use the DDNS
function, you will need to do the following two things.
First, create a DDNS hostname with a DDNS service provider
Secondly, set up a DDNS client in the home network that contacts the DDNS
service provider and updates the IP information.
If the router in your home network is equipped with a DDNS client, we recommend
using the router instead of the camera. Most SOHO routers are equipped with a
DDNS client and since the router is in direct control of handling the Internet
connection, it’s the device best suited for the DDNS task.

Digital I/O:
If your network camera is equipped with a digital I/O interface, you can configure
the connections on this page. The screen shows the current status of input 1/ input
2 and output 1/ output 2. The screen also allows you to define the “normal” state of
the port. The normal state can be viewed as the “non-alert-state.”

System Log:
The Network Camera features a log function for system messages. These are
system messages about the camera start-up procedure, e-mail deliveries, FTP
uploads, motion detection and more. The camera stores the messages in its
internal memory and displays them on the system log screen. Since memory is
limited, the messages will eventually be truncated. If you need to log all the system
messages on a remote server (e.g., for permanent record keeping of alarm events
or for troubleshooting purposes), you can utilize the remote log functionality.
- System Log:
Server Name - Type in the network address of the system log server. Enter the
address without any leading characters, such as http://.
Server Port - The standard port for this protocol is 514. If your system log server is
set up differently, you can change the value here.
- Current Log:
This text box displays the real-time log of the camera messages. The remote log
function uses the System Log Protocol, which is a standard for forwarding log
messages in an IP network. System Log is a client/server protocol. The System Log
sender (the Network Camera) sends a small (less than 1KB) textual message to the
System Log server.
