bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is also supported for
increased flexibility.
The network camera provides WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) that improves video exposure quality in scenes with
high contrast between bright and dark areas in the video, for example a shady area and a sunny area in the
same scene.

Quad Streams
The network camera can deliver quad video streams simultaneously using H.264, H.265 and Motion JPEG.
This means that several video streams can be configured with different compression formats, resolutions and
frame rates for different needs.

Intelligent video capabilities
The network camera includes intelligent capabilities such as enhanced video motion detection. The network
camera’s external inputs and outputs can be connected to devices such as sensors and relays, enabling the
system to react to alarms and activate lights or open/close doors.

2) Network
The network camera supports both IP version 4 and IP version 6. Both versions may be enabled
simultaneously, and at least one version must always be enabled. When using IPv4, the IP address for the
network camera can be set automatically via DHCP, or a static IP address can be set manually. If IPv6 is
enabled, the network camera receives an IP address according to the configuration in the network router.
There is also the option of using the Internet Dynamic DNS Service. For more information on setting the
network, refer to Setup> System>Security>Network.
•
Obtain IP address via DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol
that lets network administrators centrally manage and automate the assignment of IP
addresses on a network. DHCP is enabled by default. Although a DHCP server is mostly
used to set an IP address dynamically, it is also possible to use it to set a static, known IP
address for a particular MAC address.
•
Use the following IP address - To use a static IP address for the network camera,
check the radio button and then make the following settings:
IP address: Specify a unique IP address for your network camera.
Subnet mask: Specify the mask for the subnet where the network camera is located.
Default router: Specify the IP address of the default router (gateway) used for
connecting devices attached to different networks and network segments.
Notes:
1. DHCP should only be enabled if using dynamic IP address notification, or if your DHCP server can update a
DNS server, which then allows you to access the network camera by name (host name). If DHCP is
enabled and the unit cannot be accessed, you may have to reset it to the factory default settings and then
perform the installation again.
2. The ARP/Ping service is automatically disabled two minutes after the unit is started, or as soon as an IP
address is set.
3. Pinging the unit is still possible when this service is disabled.
20
3) Video & Image
• Sensor Setting:
Capture mode: User can select sensor capture mode between 1920x1080 (2MP)/2592x1520 (4MP)
and NTSC/PAL.
•
Stream1 Setting
Codec: The codec supported in Stream 1 is H.264 or H.265.
There are 3 pre-programmed stream profiles available for quick set-up. Choose the form of video
encoding to use from the drop-down list:
*
*
H.264 High Profile: 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).
H.264/H.265 Main Profile:
Primarily for low-cost applications that require additional error robustness, this profile is used rarely in
video-conferencing and mobile applications; it does add additional error resilience tools to the
21
*
-
•
Constrained Baseline Profile. The importance of this profile is fading after the Constrained Baseline
Profile has been defined.
H.264 BP (Baseline Profile):
Originally intended as the mainstream consumer profile for broadcast and storage applications, the
importance of this profile faded when the High Profile was developed for those applications.
Resolution:
Resolution enables users to determine a basic screen size when having access through the Web
Browser or PC program. The screen size provides several modes, such as 2592x1520, 2304x1296,
1920x1080, 1440x1080, 1280x1024, 1280x720, 1024x768, 704x480(576), 640x480, 400x240, and
320x240. Users can reset the selected screen size anytime while monitoring the screen on a real-time
basis.
-
Bitrate control:
The bit rate can be set as Constant Bit Rate (CBR) or Constrained Variable Bit Rate (CVBR). Constant
bit rate means that the rate at which a codec's output data should be consumed is constant. CBR is
useful for streaming on limited capacity channels since it is the maximum bit rate that matters, not
the average, so CBR would be used to take advantage of all of the capacity. CBR would not be the
optimal choice for storage as it would not allocate enough data for complex sections (resulting in
degraded quality) while wasting data on simple sections.
* CBR: Constant bitrate.
* CVBR: VBR with maximum bitrate which is set in Bitrate.
-
Bitrate: Maximum bitrate for CBR or CVBR in the range of 100kbps ~ 8Mbps.
-
Frame rate:
Upon real-time play, users should select a frame refresh rate per second. If the rate is high, the
image will become smooth; if the rate is low, the image will not be natural but it can reduce a
network load.
-
GOP size:
Select the GOP (Group of Picture) size. If users want to have a high quality fast image one after the
other, decrease this value. For general monitoring purposes, do not change a basic value; this may
cause a problem to the system performance. Vicon recommends that GOP be the same as the fps.
Stream2 Setting
Sometimes the image size is large due to low light or complex scenery. Adjusting the frame rate and
quality helps to control the bandwidth and storage used by the Motion JPEG video stream in these
situations. Limiting the frame rate and quality optimizes bandwidth and storage usage, but may give poor
image quality. To prevent increased bandwidth and storage usage, the Resolution, Frame Rate, and Frame
Quality should be set to an optimal value.
-
•
MJPEG resolution: Same as the stream1 setting.
MJPEG frame rate: Same as the stream1 setting.
JPEG quality: Select the picture quality. If users want to have a high quality fast image one after the
other, decrease the value. For general monitoring purposes, do not change a basic value. Such act
may cause a problem to the system performance.
Stream3, Steam4 Setting: Same as the Stream1 settings.
When the settings are complete, click Save, or click Reset to revert to previously saved settings.

Sample rate:
Select the required Sample rate (number of times per second the sound is sampled). The higher the
sample rate, the better the audio quality and the greater the bandwidth required.
-
Sound bitrate:
Depending on the selected encoding, set the desired audio quality (bitrate). The settings affect the
available bandwidth and the required audio quality.
Audio Input
Audio from an internal or external line source can be connected to the I/O terminal of the
network camera.

 QoS
Quality of Service (QoS) provides the means to guarantee a certain level of a specified resource to selected
traffic on a network. Quality can be defined as a maintained level of bandwidth, low latency, and no packet
losses.
The main benefits of a QoS-aware network are:
The ability to prioritize traffic and thus allow critical flows to be served before flows with lesser priority.
Greater reliability in the network, due to the control of the amount of bandwidth an application may use,
and thus control over bandwidth races between applications.
•
DSCP Settings
For each type of network traffic supported by your network video product, enter a DSCP (Differentiated
Services Code Point) value. This value is used to mark the traffic’s IP header. When the marked traffic
reaches a network router or switch, the DSCP value in the IP header tells the router or switch which type
of treatment to apply to this type of traffic, for example, how much bandwidth to reserve for it. Note that
DSCP values can be entered in decimal or hex form, but saved values are always shown in decimal.
The
-
•
following types of traffic are marked; enter a value for each type of traffic used:
Live Stream DSCP
Event/Alarm DSCP
Management DSCP

When the settings are complete, click Save, or click Reset to revert to previously saved settings.
65
 NAT (Port Mapping)l
A broadband router allows devices on a private network (LAN) to share a single connection to the Internet.
This is done by forwarding network traffic from the private network to the “outside,” that is, the Internet.
Security on the private network (LAN) is increased since most broadband routers are pre-configured to stop
attempts to access the private network (LAN) from the public network/Internet.
Use NAT when your network cameras are located on an intranet (LAN) and you wish to make it available from
the other (WAN) side of a NAT router. With NAT traversal properly configured, all HTTP traffic to an external
HTTP port in the NAT router is forwarded to the network camera.
Notes:
For NAT (port mapping) to work, this must be supported by the broadband router.
The broadband router has many different names:
“NAT router,” “Network router,“ Internet Gateway,” “Broadband sharing device” or “Home firewall,” but
the essential purpose of the device is the same.
66
•
NAT Settings
Enable – Check this box to enable NAT traversal. When enabled, the network camera
attempts to configure port mapping in a NAT router on your network, using UPnP. Note that
UPnP must be enabled in the network camera (see System>Network>UPnP).
*
Automatic setting: When selected, the network camera automatically searches for NAT
routers on your network.
*
Manual setting: Select this option to manually select a NAT router and enter the external
port number for the router in the field provided.
Notes:
If you attempt to manually enter a port that is already in use, an alert message will be displayed.
When the port is selected automatically it is displayed in this field. To change this enter a new port
number and click Save.
When the settings are complete, click Save, or click Reset to revert to previously saved settings.
67
 Zeroconfig
Zeroconfig allows the network camera to create and assign the IP address for network cameras and connect to
a network automatically.
Zero configuration networking (zeroconf) is a set of techniques that automatically creates a usable Internet
Protocol (IP) network without manual operator intervention or special configuration servers.
Zero configuration networking allows devices such as computers and printers to connect to a network
automatically. Without zeroconf, a network administrator must set up services, such as Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name System (DNS), or configure each computer's network
settings manually, which may be difficult and time-consuming.
Zeroconf is built on three core technologies:
•
Assignment of numeric network addresses for networked devices (link-local address auto configuration)
•
Automatic resolution and distribution of computer hostnames (multicast DNS)
•
Automatic location of network services, such as printing devices through DNS service discovery.
Click the checkbox to enable Zeroconf.
When the settings are complete, click Save, or click Reset to revert to previously saved settings.
68
 Bonjour
The network camera includes support for Bonjour. When enabled, the network camera is automatically
detected by operating systems and clients that support this protocol.
Click the check box to enable Bonjour. Enter a name in the Friendly name field.
When the settings are complete, click Save, or click Reset to revert to previously saved settings.
Note: Also known as zero-configuration networking, Bonjour enables devices to automatically discover each
other on a network, without having to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. (Bonjour is a trademark of
Apple Computer, Inc.)
