2.5 Connection
2.5.1 Default IP address
The unit’s default IP address is 192.168.0.20 and sub mask is 255.255.255.0. When setting default IP address of 192.168.0.20
the camera will check to see if that address is already in use and will bump the last octet of the address by 1 if it is. The bump
last octet of IP Address by 1 will continue until an unused IP address is found.
However, if you have a DHCP server in your network, the unit would obtain an IP address automatically from the DHCP server
so that you don’t need to change the camera’s IP address. The factory default is DHCP On and 192.168.0.20 assignment only
occurs when camera is set for DHCP but a DHCP server does not respond to request for an IP address.
2.5.2 Connecting From a Computer & Viewing Preparation
2.5.2.1 Using Pelco Device Utility Software to Get Camera’s IP Address
Pelco Device Utility software is a utility program that helps users to manage and configure the camera. Use the utility to find

41
Configuring IPv6 Settings
Your Sarix device supports IPv6 in conjunction with IPv4 configurations; the device does not support IPv6-only network
deployments. The device will accept up to sixteen IPv6 addresses, three IPv6 DNS servers, and three IPv6 gateways.
There are two configuration modes for IPv6 address assignments:
Auto: Enables automatic configuration using router advertisement. Additional configuration can be provided over DHCPv6 (if
available on your network). Selecting Auto mode still allows you to manually configure additional IPv6 addresses, DNS
servers, and gateways.
Manual Only: Provides a link-local IPv6 address for the device and allows you to assign up to 16 static IPv6 addresses to the
device.
1. Place your mouse pointer over the Network tab.
2. Select General from the drop-down menu.
3. Select On for IPv6.
4. Select a Configuration Mode from the drop-down box. Selecting Auto allows the device to configure the remaining IPv6
settings automatically, rendering the remaining steps optional.
5. (Optional) Provide static, unicast addresses in the Manual IP Addresses box. Each address requires a prefix, and it must be
input using the format prefix/IPv6Address. Manual IP addresses without prefix information will be rejected.
6. (Optional) Provide the addresses of DNS servers that are not configured automatically in the Manual DNS Servers box.
7. (Optional) Provide the addresses of gateways that are not configured automatically in the Manual Gateways box.
NOTES:
• The device will not accept multicast, localhost, or undefined IPv6 addresses.
• Link-local addresses are not supported for DNS.
• Manually specified DNS servers supersede automatically discovered DNS servers.
• Manually specified DNS servers are not validated by the device; verify any manually specified DNS servers before saving
IPv6 settings.
• Manually specified gateways must be on the same network as the devices’s IPv6 addresses. Behavior for a gateway that is
not on the same network as the device’s IPv6 addresses is undefined.
• Some video management systems (VMS), including Pelco VMS systems, do not support connections to cameras and
encoders over IPv6.
3.2.2.2 SSL
To ensure security on the Internet, all Web browsers provide several security levels that can be adjusted for sites that use SSL
technology to transmit data. SSL encrypts communications, making it difficult for unauthorized users to intercept and view user
names and passwords.
SSL requires signed certificates to determine if the Web browser accessing the camera has the required authentication. The
camera can generate a certificate signing request (CSR) that can be sent to a certificate authority for a signature (for example,
VeriSign®), or it can generate a self-signed certificate using the Generate Self-Signed Certificate option.
42
FIGURE 3-10: SSL CONFIGURATION
SSL Configuration
Select one of the following modes:

Required: A signed Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate must be installed, and a secure URL that begins with the
protocol name “https:” must be used to access the camera. Sensitive data is always encrypted during transmission. A
URL that begins with the “http:” protocol rather than the “https:” protocol will be redirected to the secure URL
automatically.
NOTE: Beginning with firmware version 1.8.2, this field cannot be modified in the Web browser. To select or clear the
Required mode, you must use the ONVIF or Pelco API call. Doing so avoids placing the camera into a mode in which it
would no longer work with a connected VMS system.

Optional: A signed SSL certificate must be installed, but a secure URL that begins with the protocol name “https:” is
optional when accessing the camera. You can also access the camera using a standard URL with the “http:” protocol, but
sensitive data is not encrypted during transmission. To ensure that sensitive data is encrypted, you must use a secure
URL with the “https:” protocol.

Disabled (default): Turns off access to the Web client through SSL. Sensitive data will not be encrypted during
transmission.
NOTE: If the SSL mode is set to disabled, you cannot access the camera using a URL that begins with an “https:”
protocol. Your Web browser displays an error message if you do not type the camera URL correctly.

3.2.2.4 802.1x
802.1x is a port security that authenticates devices that want to establish a point-to-point access through a wired or wireless
port using Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). This port-based authentication method prevents unauthorized access to a
Local Area Network (LAN) through a physical port. For example, when a device is connected to a network port, the network
switch will ask the device for authentication.
If the credential is accepted when the device sends a credential to the network switch, the network switch will open the port for
normal use.
If authentication fails, the device is prevented from accessing information on the port.

Basic Setting

BLC
Select an area ranging from Upper, Lower, Central 1/3rd, Central 1/6th, Left, and Right for Backlight Compensation.
Backlight Compensation is a function that sets the brightness of a selected area to an optimal level. This function is
necessary when an auto iris lens tends to close quickly due to an intense light coming from the back of object in the area
wished to view, resulting in the area being too dark and difficult to see. In this case, users may set the area
corresponding to the portion they wish to see.

Digital WDR
Select On to enable Digital WDR. This feature is intended for providing clear images even under backlight where intensity
of illumination can vary excessively, i.e. when both very bright and dark areas simultaneously come in the field of view.
Digital WDR, via software algorithm, enables capture and display of both bright and dark areas in the same frame, in
such a way that there are clear details in both areas, i.e. bright areas are not saturated and dark areas are not too dark.
52


Auto Focus
1.
Temperature Change Refocus: The camera is programmed to run a quick automatic focus sequence when the
internal temperature sensor of the camera detects an environmental temperature change of 41°F (5°C). This focus
sequence adjusts the center focal point of the scene to maintain optimal focus. The default setting is Off; select On
to turn on this setting.
2.
Day/Night Switch Refocus: The default setting for the Day/Night Switch Refocus is Off. Select On if the camera’s
focal length is greater than 25 mm or the night scene uses mostly IR lighting. The best method to determine if the
day/night refocus should be enabled is to test the camera with the daytime light conditions, and then test it again
with the nighttime light conditions.
When enabled On this setting refocuses the camera when the camera changes from day mode (color) to night
mode (black-white) or vice versa. For example, if the camera changes from day mode to night mode, the imager
automatically adjusts the back focus for the change in light.
3.
If required, use one of the following buttons to adjust the focus:



Rate Control
The rate control setting determines the bit rate and quality of each frame in the video stream.


CBR: The constant bit rate (CBR) streams video at a fixed number of bits per second. CBR uses the full capacity of
the bit rate setting for scenes with or without motion. Video is always streamed at the user bit rate setting.
Adjust the CBR Bit Rate slider that appears when CBR is selected to the optimal fixed number of bits per second.

CVBR: The constrained variable bit rate (CVBR) provides high-quality video and long recording time of variable bit
rate while limiting variations in recording capacity consumption. Adjust the Maximum Bit Rate slider that appears
when CVBR is selected to the optimal bit rate for your configuration.
Image Rate
The image rate is the number of images per second (ips) available for the video stream configuration. Available image
rates are 30, 25, 20, 16.67, 15, 12.5, 12, 10, 7.5, 5, 3, 2, and 1.
NOTE: The maximum image rate setting might not be obtainable due to the programmed compression standard and the
resolution of the stream.

GOP Length
Select the GOP Length from 1 to 60. The upper limit depends on the selected image rate. Recovery of the lost frames will
be more difficult as the value gets bigger. Smaller values will increase the bit rate and network bandwidth demands. This
setting is only available with H264.

QoS (DSCP) Codepoint
Quality of Service (QoS) for Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) is a code that allows the network to prioritize the
transmission of different types of data. This setting is only available with H264.
NOTES:
1.
If you are not familiar with DSCP, contact your network administrator before changing this setting.
2.
Your network must be configured to use QoS. If you are unsure if your network is QoS-aware, contact your network
administrator.

Endura Signing
Enabling the Endura Signing feature allows an Endura® system to authenticate video from an Endura recorded stream.
This setting is only available with H264.

Profile
The profile defines the subset of bit stream features in an H.264 stream, including color reproduction and additional video
compression. It is important that the selected profile is compatible with the recording device so that a stream can be
decoded and viewed.
1.
Main: An intermediate profile with a medium compression ratio. Main is the default profile setting. This profile is
compatible with most recorders and uses fewer bits to compress video than the baseline profile; however, it uses
more bits than the high profile. The main profile supports I-frames, P-frames, and B-frames.
2.
High: A complex profile with a high compression ratio. This is the primary profile for high-definition television
applications; for example this is the profile adopted for Blu-ray and HD-DVD. The high profile supports I-frames,
P-frames, and B-frames.
Secondary Stream
Select Custom in Select Preset and configure Secondary Stream. Repeat Primary Stream setting steps for the Secondary
Stream settings.
