1.2 Key Features
• Brilliant video quality
The network camera offers the highly efficient H.264 video compression, which drastically reduces
bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is also
supported for increased flexibility.
• Wide Dynamic Range
The network camera provides true 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.
• Dual or Triple Streams
The network camera can deliver dual or triple video streams simultaneously at full frame rate in all
resolutions up to Full-HD (1920 x 1080p) using H.264 and Motion JPEG.
This means that several video streams can be configured with different compression formats, resolutions
and frame rates for different needs.
• Image setting adjustment
The network camera also enables users to adjust image settings such as contrast, brightness and
saturation to improve images before encoding takes place.
• Focus & Zoom Control via Network
The Network Camera also enables users to adjust focus and zoom remotely via network.
It also supports auto focusing.
• Intelligent video capabilities
The network camera includes intelligent capabilities such as VCA (Video Content Analysis). 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.
• Improved Security
The network camera logs all user access, and lists currently connected users. Also, its full frame rate video
can be provided over HTTPS.
• PoE (Power over Ethernet)
This network camera can be powered through PoE+, which simplifies installation since only one cable is
needed for carrying power, as well as video controls.
• ONVIF Certificate
This is a global interface standard that makes it easier for end users, integrators, consultants, and
manufacturers to take advantage of the possibilities offered by network video technology. ONVIF enables
interoperability between different vendor products, increased flexibility, reduced cost, and future-proof
• Micro-SD Recording support

2.2.1 Network Connection & 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 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 SmartManager utility is available on Vicon’s website,, under
Software Downloads/Vicon Cameras/Encoders.
1) Connect the network camera/device to the network and power up.
Start SmartManager utility (Start > All programs > SmartManager > SmartManager).
The main window will display and after a short while any network devices connected to the network will
be displayed in the list.
3) Select the camera on the list and right click right the mouse. The pop-up menu displays as below.
