Enable Preview
Select ON to enable to display video on the monitor
that is connected to the composite video port.
Select the Output format accordingly in the end of
the Video page.
Note that when Enable Preview is ON, dual streaming
is not available.
When the video is transmitted directly to the monitor
through BNC cable, the video does not go thorough
network and encoding. Therefore, there is less delay
and no an effect from network limitation.
Select video encoding resolution.
5 steps of the resolution are available.
Select Video quality. 5 levels of quality are available.
Quality mode (VBR encoding) tries to encode every
frame in a constant quality. Therefore, resulting bitrate
may varies a lot depending on the complexity or
activity changes in the input video. It is preferred
when constant video quality is required and network
bandwidth is enough for delivering the stream of
highly varying bitrate.
Bit rate (in CBR mode)
Determine bitrate value between 256Kbps ~ 10Mbps.
Bitrate mode (CBR encoding) allows you to set a fixed
target bitrate that consumes a predictable amount of
bandwidth. Usually this mode is used with high
quality video or video with frequent image changes
2~3 Mbps is highly recommended for high quality
video transmission.
GOP sets the number of Partial frame(P-Frame)
between I-Frames.
Interval of I-Frames can be setup from 1 to 30.
Scaling option is used when encoding resolution is
different from input resolution. Without Scaling
option, input video will be cut according to encoding
resolution. On the other hand, if Scaling is selected,
input video will be adjusted according to encoding
Frame rate
Determine the maximum number of frames per
second for the video stream.
1 ~ 30 frame rate can be selected. The actual frame
rate of video can be less than the maximum frame
rate set due to the network bandwidth limitation
Select encoding mode to control video quality or
bitrate: Quality or Bit rate.
If ‘Bitrate’ selected, the video encoding will be effected
by the ‘Bitrate’ value entered. Therefore, “Bitrate”
mode corresponds to CBR (Constant Bit rate)
If ‘Quality’ selected, the video encoding will be
effected by the quality of image selected. Therefore,
“Quality” mode corresponds to VBR (Variable Bit Rate)
Quality (in VBR mode)
H.264 Profile
Select H.264 Profile: High Profile or Baseline Profile
The standard defines various sets of capabilities, which
are referred to as profiles, targeting specific classes of
High Profile (HiP)
The primary profile for broadcast and disc storage
applications, particularly for high-definition television
applications (for example, this is the profile adopted
by the Blu-ray Disc storage format and the DVB HDTV
broadcast service).
Baseline Profile (BP)
Primarily for low-cost applications that require
additional data loss robustness, this profile is used in
some videoconferencing and mobile applications. This
profile includes all features that are supported in the
Constrained Baseline Profile, plus three additional
features that can be used for loss robustness (or for
other purposes such as low-delay multi-point video
stream compositing).

Primary DNS server
Secondary DNS server
Domain Name System (DNS) is a database system that
translates a computer's fully qualified domain name into an IP
address. Networked computers use IP addresses to locate and
connect to each other, but IP addresses can be difficult for
people to remember. For example, on the web, it's much easier
to remember the domain name than it is
to remember its corresponding IP address ( Each
organization that maintains a computer network will have at
least one server handling DNS queries. That server, called a
name server, will hold a list of all the IP addresses within its
network, plus a cache of IP addresses for recently accessed
computers outside the network.
Base Port
Enter the Base Port number.
Network base port is use for communication with
remote clients. In order for camera and remote
systems (CMS, NVR software) to be connected, the
port number must be identically configured in camera
side and client side.
Enter HTTP port used for web-based connection
Enter RTSP port used for RTSP-based connection. The
default RTSP port is 554
RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) is a standard for
media streaming between server and client.
Primary Video & Audio: rtsp://IP address/Master-0
Secondary Video & Audio : rtsp://IP address/Slave-0
By setting UPNP to ON, it allows the discovery by the
client according to UPNP (Universal Plug and Play)
WS Discovery
If WS Discovery is turned on, cameras under a LAN
can be searched on a client with WS Discovery
protocol. The WS Discovery is used as the default
search protocol on ONVIF.
RTP Session
RTP (Real-Time Transport Protocol) is an Internet
protocol used for transmitting single real-time
multimedia data such as audio and video to a select
group of connected clients. Normally RTSP uses RTP
to format packets of multimedia content. RTP Session
menu is used when the RTP only streaming without
RTSP connection. RTP stream will be transmitted to
the destination set. The SDP (Session Description
Protocol) file can be found in the server, and a client
can retrieve it using http connection.
Related settings are as following.
Destination IP : Set the IP Address for your
destination system which will receive RTP stream
Destination Port : Set the Port for your destination
system which will receive RTP stream
User Name: Enter the User name that will be used as
session name in the SDP file.

are adjusted not to drop any frames when the
network bandwidths to some clients are limited. In this
case, all clients can be affected by the averaged
bitrate and frame rate.
Address Info
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used by
network management systems to communicate with network
elements. SNMP lets TCP/IP-based network management clients use
a TCP/IP-based internetwork to exchange information about the
configuration and status of nodes. SNMP can also generate trap
messages used to report significant TCP/IP events asynchronously
to interested clients. For example, a router could send a message if
one of its redundant power supplies fails or a printer could send an
SNMP trap when it is out of paper
Multicast IP
The Multicast menu is used for configuring the
multicast IP address to which media stream is
delivered when a client such as a CMS or NVR
software is connected in multicast mode. The
multicast IP address selection range is between and The selection can be
used only when media protocol is set to Multicast.
Select the DDNS (Dynamic DNS) server to use.
Bitrate control
When there are more than one client connected to
the camera, due to bandwidth difference among the
clients some of them do not have enough bandwidth
to receive encoded stream completely. In this case, it
is possible to select the way to stream video to clients
as following.
Frame Drop Mode: Encoding is performed strictly
according to video settings. When a client is
connected through a network with less bandwidth, it
may not receive all the frames. That is, frames are
dropped on sending module if the network is
