2.2 Network Connection and IP assignment
The network camera is designed for use on an Ethernet network and requires an IP address for access. Most
networks today have a DHCP server that automatically assigns IP addresses to connected devices. By the
factory default, your camera is set to obtain the IP address automatically via DHCP server. If your network
does not have a DHCP server the network camera will use 192.168.1.100 as the default IP address.
If DHCP is enabled and the product cannot be accessed, run the “Smart Manager” utility to search and allocate
an IP address to your products, or reset the product to the factory default settings and then perform the
installation again. The utility can be found on the Vicon website www.vicon-security.com, on the Software
Downloads page for Vicon cameras
1)
Connect the network camera to the network and power up.
2)
Start SmartManager utility (Start>All Programs>SmartManager>SmartManager); the main window
displays. After a short while any network devices connected to the network will be displayed in the list.

3.2 Access from the Internet
Once connected, the network camera is accessible on your local network (LAN). To access the network camera
from the Internet you must configure your broadband router to allow incoming data traffic to the network
camera. To do this, enable the NAT-traversal feature, which will attempt to automatically configure the router
to allow access to the network camera. This is enabled from Setup > System > Network > NAT.
For more information, refer to section “3.5.4 System>Network>NAT” of this manual.
3.3 Setting the Admin Password over a Secure Connection
To gain access to the camera, the password for
the default administrator user must be set. This is
done in the “Admin Password” dialog, which is
displayed when the network camera is accessed for
setup the first time. Enter your admin name and
password, set by the administrator.
Note: The default administrator username is
“ADMIN” and password is “1234”. If the password
is lost, the network camera must be reset to the
factory default settings.
To prevent network eavesdropping when setting the admin password, it can be done via an encrypted HTTPS
connection, which requires an HTTPS certificate (see note below).
To set the password via a standard HTTP connection, enter it directly in the first dialog shown below. To set
the password via an encrypted HTTPS connection, see “3.5.4 System > Security > HTTPS”.

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.
18
3) Video & Image
• Sensor Setting:
-
Capture mode: User can select sensor capture mode between 1920x1080 (2MP)/2592x1520 (4MP)
and NTSC/PAL. If 4MP is selected, max frame rate is limited to 20fps (4MP model only).
•
Stream1 Setting
Codec type: The codec supported in Stream 1 is H.264 or H.265.
-
Codec: 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
Constrained Baseline Profile. The importance of this profile is fading after the Constrained Baseline
Profile has been defined.
*
19
•
*
H.264 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 control provides several modes, such as like2592x1520,
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 Setting: Same as the Stream1 settings.
When the settings are complete, click Save, or click Reset to revert to previously saved settings.

 NAT (Port Mapping)
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.

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.

Possible Causes or Corrective Actions
If using a proxy server, try disabling the proxy setting in your browser.
Check all cabling and connectors.
Check if there are firewall settings that need to be adjusted. Check if
there are router settings that need to be configured.
If using a network switch, check that the port on that device uses the
same setting for the network connection type (speed/duplex).
Check that the host name and DNS server settings are correct.
When HTTPS is enabled, ensure that the correct protocol (HTTP or
HTTPS) is used. When attempting to log in, you may need to manually
type in http or https in the browser's address bar.
If images are very complex, try limiting the number of clients accessing
the camera.
Check the Video & Image setting.
Refocus the camera.
Increased lighting can often improve image quality. Check that there is
sufficient lighting at the monitored location. Check all image and lighting
settings.
Try adjusting the Exposure Control setting under AE and AWB part.
Check that the correct network interface is selected in the Video &
Image/Stream.
Check with your network administrator that the multicast addresses used
by the camera are valid for your network. Check that the Enable multicast
checkbox is enabled in the System/Network/RTP tab. Checks with your
network administrator to see if there is a firewall preventing viewing.
Check if your router supports multicasting, or if the router settings
between the client and the server need to be configured. The TTL value
may need to be increased.
Modify the settings for your graphics adapter. Please see the adapter's
documentation for more information.
Too many users/clients connected to the camera may affect the sound
quality adversely. Try limiting the number of clients allowed to connect.
Check that the correct Audio Input source is selected. Select Microphone
for a connected external microphone. Select Line for a connected line in
source.
Check that the SD Card is inserted properly.
Check that the SD Card is formatted properly.

NOTE:
•
If the product is to be used outdoors or in dusty, humid, or other hostile environments, it must be

Failure to comply with any of the aforementioned requirements will invalidate this Limited Hardware
Warranty.
Date of retail purchase is the date original end-user takes possession of the equipment, or, at the sole
discretion of the Company, the date the equipment first becomes operational by the original end-user.
The sole remedy under this Warranty is that defective equipment be repaired or (at the Company’s option)
replaced, at Company repair centers, provided the equipment has been authorized for return by the Company,
and the return shipment is prepaid in accordance with policy. Repaired or replacement hardware will be
warranted for the remainder of the original Warranty Period or ninety (90) days, whichever is longer. When a
product or part is exchanged the replacement hardware becomes the property of the original purchaser and
all hardware or part thereof that is replaced shall become the property of Vicon.

damaged by acts of God, misuse, abuse, negligence, accident, normal wear and tear and deterioration,
improper environmental conditions (including, but not limited to, electrical surges, water damage, chemical
exposure, an/or heat/cold exposure) or lack of responsible care, (e) if the product has had the model or serial
number altered, defaced or removed, (f) to consumables (such as storage media or batteries) (g) to products
that have been purchased “as is” and Vicon the seller or the liquidator expressly disclaim their warranty
obligation pertaining to the product, (h) to any non-Vicon hardware product or any software (irrespective of
packaged or sold with Vicon hardware product) and Vicon products purchased from an unauthorized
distributor/reseller, (i) to damage that occurs in shipment or (j) to damages by any other causes not related to
defective design, workmanship and/or materials.
The warranty for the products shall run from Vicon to End User customers only (including product purchased
through authorized partners and resellers). Vicon is not obligated under any circumstances to honor warranties
on product(s) purchases from internet auction sites including eBay, uBid or from any other unauthorized
resellers. Except as explicitly provided herein, Vicon disclaims all other warranties, including the implied
warranties of fitness for a particular purpose and merchantability.

warrant that such software shall be error (bug) free. Software support via telephone, if provided at no
cost, may be discontinued at any time without notice at Vicon’s sole discretion. Vicon reserves the
right to make changes to its software in any of its products at any time and without notice.
The Warranty and remedies provided above are exclusive and in lieu of all other express or implied
warranties including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a
particular purpose. Certain jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties. If laws under
such jurisdictions apply, then all express and implied warranties are limited to the warranty period
identified above. Unless provided herein, any statements or representations made by any other
person or firm are void. Except as provided in this written warranty and to the extent permitted by law,
neither Vicon nor any affiliated shall be liable for any loss, (including loss of data and information),
inconvenience, or damage, including, but not limited to, direct, special, incidental or consequential
damages, resulting from the use or inability to use the Vicon product, whether resulting from breach
of warranty or any other legal theory. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Vicon total liability for all claims
under this warranty shall not exceed the price paid for the product. These limitations on potential
liabilities have been an essential condition in setting the product.
No one is authorized to assume any liability on behalf of the Company, or impose any obligations on it in
connection with the sale of any Goods, other than that which is specified above. In no event will the Company
be liable for indirect, special, incidental, consequential, or other damages, whether arising from interrupted
equipment operation, loss of data, replacement of equipment or software, costs or repairs undertaken by the
Purchaser, or other causes.
This warranty applies to all sales made by the Company or its dealers and shall be governed by the laws of
New York State without regard to its conflict of laws principles. This Warranty shall be enforceable against the
Company only in the courts located in the State of New York.
The form of this Warranty is effective August 1, 2015.
