Video Settings
Preferred Video Codec – The GXV3611 supports the H.264 video codec.
Resolution – The higher the resolution is, the better the video quality is, and higher
bandwidth is required.
Low -----------------------Æ High Resolution
QCIF
CIF
2CIF
D1
Bit Rate – The number of bits that are
conveyed or processed per unit of time.
Maximum Frame Rate – The video frame
rate is adjustable based on network
conditions. Increasing the frame rate will
increase the amount of data significantly
therefore consuming more bandwidth. Video
will be impaired due to packet loss when
there is insufficient bandwidth.
Bit Rate Control – Variable Bit rate (VBR)
and Constant Bit Rate (CBR).
Variable Bit Rate - If VBR is selected, the codec varies the amount of output data per time
segment. VBR produces a better quality-to-space ratio. The bits available are used to enable
more flexibly and encode sound or video data more accurately, with fewer bits used in less
demanding passages and more bits used in difficult-to-encode passages.
Constant Bit Rate - If CBR is selected, the codec’s output data is constant regardless of the
input data. The output bit rate is defined in “Bit rate”. CBR is useful for streaming multimedia
content on limited capacity channels. It is easier to calculate required bandwidth as well as
the required storage space using CBR.
Image Quality – If ‘Bit Rate Control’ is set to “VBR”, “Image quality” needs to be configured.
The better the video quality is, the higher the bit rate will be.
I-frame Interval – While streaming video over a network, compression technologies are used
to show the incremental difference between each frame.
I-frames are used to help keep the
video looking normal. When intervals are shorter, the video quality is higher but uses more
bandwidth.
NOTE:
The users might need to configure the Primary Stream and Secondary Stream
properly. Sometimes, the user might like to watch the live video stream from the web GUI in
low resolution mode while recording a copy via GSurf/GS_NVR in high resolution due to the
limitation of internet bandwidth. In this case, for example, primary stream can be configured
to have better resolution, and then the users can use primary stream to record while watching
secondary video streams.
Audio Settings
Preferred Audio Codec – The GXV3611 supports up to 3 different Vocoder types, a-law
(PCMA), u-law (PCMU) and G.726. The audio can also be turned off by switching the setting
to “Disabled”
Firmware 1.0.4.6
Grandstream Networks, Inc.

GXV3611 Mini IP Dome Camera
Audio Compression – Audio compression is a form of data compression designed to reduce
the size of audio files. Usually, the higher the
audio compression is, the better the audio
quality is.
Microphone Volume/Speaker Volume –
GXV3611 has build in Microphone and
Speaker. And this volume can be adjusted
here.
Line In – Switching between Internal and
External microphone.
Line Out – Switching between Internal and
External speaker.
Power Frequency - this setting should
match the power frequency used in the
country to avoid flickering in the image. And
it is only available for GXV3611HD
GXV3611 Networking Page – Assign an IP to GXV3611
GXV3611 supports IP version 4. The IP address can set automatically via DHCP, or a static IP
address can be set manually. To make GXV3611 work properly, the user needs to set the
DNS configuration properly. For security purposes, the user can also assign the GXV3611 an
HTTP Port other than 80.
IP Address Configuration
The GXV3611 operates in two modes:
Dynamically Assigned via DHCP
– all the field values for the Static IP
mode are not used. The GXV311
acquires its IP address from the first
DHCP server it discovers on its
LAN.
Statically Configured as –
configures all of the following fields:
IP address, Subnet Mask, Default
Gateway IP address, DNS Server 1
(primary), DNS Server 2 (secondary). These fields are set to zero by default. Static IP
addresses are recommended for the GXV3611

DNS Configuration
There are two methods of DNS
configuration on the GXV3611:
1. The GXV3611 can obtain the DNS
server automatically
2. Users can configure their own

How Alarm Input and Alarm Output Work
Alarm-in is the alarm input port; users are able to connect sensors such as infrared sensor,
smoke sensor or light sensor to it. The detectable signal voltage range for alarm-in is from
1.8V to 15 V NOTE:
Please do not connect a device that has a signal voltage that is higher
than 15V, this will damage the IP camera.
Internally, the Alarm-out uses relays as a switch (30VAC/2A); users can connect devices such
as alarm siren or alert light to this port. Under normal circumstances, the circuit is open.
When there is an alarm event, the GXV3611 will close the circuit to trigger the alarm.
