security on the wireless network.
IPv6*2 Network Camera
Your Panasonic Network Camera supports IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6), IPv6
was created to address the additional IP addresses that will be needed as the
Internet continues to expand. Since the camera also supports IPv4 that's currently
used, it is "dual stack" design will seamlessly operate while IPv6 is phased in. For
more information in IPv6 you wish to visit http://www.ipv6.org/. See page 15 for
more information.

Tunneling" service. The camera does not work in IPv6-only network.
Audio feature does not work on cell phones. Talk button and Listen button cannot be used
simultaneously. In consequence of traffic and network environments, the audio may be
delayed or may break up.
Operating Instructions
Better Image Quality
The CCD sensor and the color night view mode provides better image quality and
low light performance.
•

•
You can monitor live video (Motion JPEG) that refreshes its image 30 frames
per second.
•
Color night view mode allows you to monitor the camera in low illuminance.
Various Camera Control Features
The camera pans or tilts fast in maximum 80 ° per second. (The previous model:
21 ° per second) You can control the camera at high speed from your PC or cell

SD memory card. If you enable alarm buffer/transfer, you can record the image at
the timing of signal detection of door sensor or light. About 58,000 images (320 x
240 resolution and standard quality) can be recorded to 1 GB SD memory card. If
you enable 1-minute interval timer buffer/transfer, you can record the images for
about 41 days.

communication. The previous model displays only 4 cameras, but this camera can
switch 3 sets of 4 cameras. Additionally, the camera can displays maximum 12
cameras on a page in a static image.

To Access the Camera in IPv6
You need to prepare the followings to access the camera in IPv6.
•
•
•
PC Requirements
Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 1 or later
Web Browser: Internet Explorer 6.0 or later
An IPv6 Router
An IPv6 Connection Service
To connect in IPv6, subscribe to the ISP's "IPv4/IPv6 Dual-Stack" or "IPv6 over
IPv4 Tunneling" service. The camera does not work in IPv6-only network.
IPv6 Domain Name Service
In Windows XP, you cannot access the camera entering IP address on the web
browser. You need to enter IPv6 URL registered in the domain name service. We
recommend Viewnetcam.com service (see page 29 of the Installation/
Troubleshooting) as a domain name service. Ask your ISP about other IPv6
domain name service.
What is IPv6?
•
•
•
•
•
IPv6 is short for "Internet Protocol Version 6".
IPv6 was created to address the additional IP addresses that will be
needed as the Internet continues to expand.
IPv6 is expected to gradually replace IPv4, with the 2 coexisting for a
number of years during a transition period.
Though most ISPs (Internet Service Providers) do not yet support IPv6,
many local networks already use it. When your ISP supports IPv6, your
Panasonic Network Camera will be ready!
For more information you wish to visit http://www.ipv6.org/.

Audio features such as camera microphone sensitivity and mute during pan/

If you are running other applications or opening multiple windows, the audio
may be interrupted or delayed.
When the image is refreshed during any operation such as preset registration
or a web browser refresh, the volume is reset to the default (midrange)
position. Audio that was muted is enabled.
The audio may be interrupted due to your PC's performance or network
environment. Reduce the max. bandwidth (see page 42 and page 47).
If the camera is accessed while the PC user visits other websites, the active
microphone may pick up audio from the PC's speakers. Be careful with it.
Talk feature cannot be used from a PC when the camera is accessed via a
proxy server.
If you cannot listen to the audio or talk from your PC, see 2.6 Audio Problems
in the Troubleshooting section of the Installation/Troubleshooting.
If you use external microphone, excessive length or poor quality microphone
cable can cause a degradation in audio quality.
The cables for the external microphone must be less than 7 m (about 23 feet)
long.
To talk to the camera from your PC, an external amplified speaker must be
connected to the camera. The speaker connects to the camera with a stereo
audio cable similar to that used by your PC. Though the connector is stereo,
the audio is not.
If you install the camera outdoors, external microphone or external speaker
must be outdoor compatible.

Connecting the Camera to Your IPv4 Network
The Network page offers three options to configure the camera in IPv4.
•
[Automatic Setup] automatically assigns an unused IP address to the camera,
and uses UPnPTM (Universal Plug and Play) to configure your router.
•
[Static] allows the user to use a specific IP address.

3. Enter each parameter in the proper data field.
Automatic Setup
The camera automatically obtains the network settings (subnet mask, default
gateway and DNS server address) utilizing a DHCP feature on the router. The
camera also automatically searches the unused IP address on your network.
If you select [Yes] at the Allow Access from the Internet, the camera
automatically enables port forwarding by using UPnPTM. In this case, the
camera automatically searches the unused port number on your network in the
order from 50000 to 50050.

In "802.11b", there are a lot of 802.11b-compliant products
and they are inexpensive. They are widely prevalent, so
"802.11b" is useful when using your existing wireless
devices.
"802.11b/g" supports both 802.11b and 802.11g wireless
LAN standards. It is the communication mode that is easy
to install on your existing wireless LAN.
"802.11g exclusive" communicates using 802.11g only. It
does not support the mixed standard mode of 802.11b/g,
so it allows the use of original features of 802.11g.*1
Even if "802.11g exclusive" is in use, the existence of other wireless devices using 2.4

Pay attention to the following points.
•
Set the user name and password as many characters as possible.
•
Change the password regularly.
IMPORTANT
•
It is important to limit access to the camera by use of a unique User Name and
a secret Password. Because the camera is accessed through the Internet it is
possible that the camera could be accessed by unknown individuals, including
those who are commonly known as "hackers," to whom you do not want to
allow access. The use of a unique User Name and a Password known only to
you will help insure that only authorized individuals are given access to the
camera. You have the option of proceeding without a User Name and
Password, but it is strongly recommended that you utilize these protections.
