VI. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
b.
Video Setting.
This section allows you to specify how video streaming may be compressed and transmitted over
network. This IP Camera supports dual streaming, allowing secondary viewing device to receive realtime IP steaming at substantially low frame rates per second, while at the same time, does not affect
settings of primary viewing channel.
Streaming 1
Streaming 2
1.
Primary Viewer which usually will consume large bandwidth level (e.g., main
monitoring station like IP Viewer and iNVR surveillance system software)
Secondary Viewer which usually cannot enjoy large bandwidth level (e.g., mobile
device like 3GPP, 3G Symbian, and Smartphone mobile and PDA phones)
Streaming 1. There are two modes available for settings: Basic and Advanced modes.
Basic Mode.
Resolution. This refers to resolution of video and there are four sizes to choose from:
SXGA
1280 x 1024 (High Definition 1.3 Megapixels)
VGA
640 x 480
QVGA
320 x 240
QQVGA
160 x 120
Quality. This refers to quality of video streaming, and there are five levels to choose from. The higher the
quality is, the bigger the files size will be.
Video Frame Rate. This refers to maximum frames can be transmitted per second (fps). Maximum rate
for 1.3Megapixels is at 10fps for both NTSC and PAL. For rest of resolutions, maximum rate is at 30fps
for NTSC and 25fps for PAL. In general, the higher the rate is, the better the video quality will be. As
well, when video quality is higher, compression size is bigger and will take more bandwidth, thus
maximum rate can be received in remote site will be less.
Video Format. IP Camera supports dual codices: MPEG-4 Simple Profile and JPEG format. Choose one
of them that is best for your network bandwidth and storage capacity.
Video System. Either 60 Hz (mainly NTSC) or 50 Hz (mainly PAL). This will affect maximum Video
Frame Rate may be transmitted.
RTSP Path. When using Smartphone device (3G Symbian, Windows Embedded, or Windows Mobile)
for mobile surveillance, enter RTSP address here. Examples:
28
VI. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/
rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/v2
Streaming 1 without incoming audio
Streaming 2 without incoming audio
Please consult RTSP address with your telecom service provider.
Advanced Mode. Additional fine setting options include the followings:
Bitrate Control Mode. Either CBR (Constant Bit
Rate) or VBR (Variable Bit Rate). For both of them,
the higher the rate is, the better the video quality will
be. Please test carefully for each bit rate level.
GOP Size. It refers to Group of Pictures per transmission unit. The higher the GOP is, the better the
video quality will be.
2.
Streaming 2. There are four modes available for settings: Basic, Advanced, 3GPP, and Closed
modes. Settings of Basic and Advanced modes are identical to those of them in Streaming 1.
3GPP Mode.
3GPP Mode is designed for mobile surveillance using 3GPP protocol. Due to limitation of protocol itself,
maximum video resolution is at QQVGA. If you would like to transmit larger resolution of video, please
use Smartphone device (3G Symbian, Windows Embedded, or Windows Mobile) with RTSP setting in
Advanced Mode (both Streaming 1 and Streaming 2). Examples:
rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/3g
rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/3gx
with incoming audio stream
without incoming audio stream
Please note, not all countries and telecom companies support 3GPP features necessary for private content
streaming. Please consult with your local telecom service provider prior to operation.
Finally, click [Apply] to effect the changes.
Please note, since total video frame rate of this IP Camera is 30/25fps by hardware, total frame rates of
Streaming 1 and Streaming 2 together CANNOT exceed 30/25fps.
Please note, primary viewing channel may be set as Streaming 2. That is, there is no restriction to say that
Streaming 2 shall always be the low-bandwidth channel. But if you are using 3GPP connection for remote
surveillance, it will always connect to Streaming 2. If you are using Smartphone device via RTSP ports
for remote surveillance, either streaming channel is acceptable.

on a public square and the size is even smaller if
camera is mounted far away. Thus, the movement of
this person usually cannot be sensed sharply. If you
encounter similar situations, you can increase sensitivity level of VMD. The higher the sensitivity level is,
the more sensitive the detection result will be.
Area 1/2/3. Check box of [Area 1] in order to setup method of reactions (described below) when a motion
is being detected. The same method also applies to [Area 2] and [Area 3].
E-Mail. When a motion is being detected, an Alert Message with video evidence as attachment will be
sent to a pre-defined e-mail account.
FTP. When a motion is being detected, video evidence will be sent to a pre-defined FTP account.
Save to SD Card. When a motion is being detected, evidence will be recorded to local SD Card storage
port (video only). At the same time, you may also Send a Text Log to e-mail or FTP, notifying users that
there has been an event occurred locally.
Interval between two recordings is fixed at 30 second.

VI. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
Subject. Title of Alert Message to be sent via e-mail.
Interval. This is referring to period between two VMD events. Thus IP Camera will not overreact to a
longer-time event.
b.
Event Triggering
This section defines types and lengths of
evidence to be sent to pre-defined e-mail
account and FPT server.
As well, when network is disconnected, events
may be recorded to local SD Card storage.
1.
Recording Format.
AVI File. IP Camera will send one clip of video evidence in AVI format (either MPEG-4 or JPEG), with
respect to pre-alarm and post-alarm recording made in Recording Length section.
Series of JPEG File(s). IP Camera will send a series of still image evidence in JPEG format, with
respect to pre-alarm and post-alarm recording made in Recording Length section. This feature is
available only when Video Compression is set to JPEG mode.
Single JPEG File. IP Camera will send one piece still image evidence in JPEG format, with respect to
frequency made in Interval section.
Because the size of still JPEG is the smallest, this option is recommended for e-mail alerts or those who
use mobile device (mobile and PDA phones) to receive e-mails.
2.
Recording Length.
IP Camera is intelligent enough to process pre-alarm and post-alarm recording so that you will never
miss any important events against your interests.
Pre Alarm:
Post Alarm:
0~5 second.
0~10 second.

VI. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
3.
Network Disconnection Recording.
Important events shall always be recorded when network is not available (not able to send alert
messages with video or image evidences via e-mail or FTP). Click [Record to SD Card] to enforce
compulsory recording of events to local SD card storage, even if [Save to SD Card] is not enabled in
Video Motion Detection section. After network is re-established, users may access to SD Card in order
to playback events occurred during disconnected period.
AVI files at 5fps will be saved to SD Card continuously.
Please note, this feature is only available to non-wireless models.
4.
Network IP Detection.
Click [Enabled] to activate IP Check function, then enter a website to be connected for testing.
Action of each IP Check may be stored on SD Card for future reference. Interval between two
recordings on SD Card is fixed at 30 second.
Finally, click [Apply] to effect the changes.

This section contains two main portions as follow:
a.
Playback
b.
Log Book
a.
Playback.
IP Camera feature one SD Card storage port (card is not included in the package) for local recording. In
case any events occur, you may access IP Camera then search and playback SD archives for verifications.
To use, please insert a SD Card into port completely.
When there is no SD Card inserted, playback window will be shown as follow:
When there is a SD Card inserted and recording has proceeded, playback window will shown as follow:
Date
Storage Space
Date. Recorded events are categorized by date. Click a [Date] in order to search.
Storage Space. This section shows Used and Free Size of inserted SD Card storage medium.
1.
To playback, click on one of the dates, a list of events similar to the following will be shown:
Event types include: video motion detection, alarm
triggering (selected models only), network
disconnection (non-wireless models only) , and
network IP detection.
There are 10 events per page, and there can be as many
pages as SD Card space is available.
34
VI. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
AVI files are saved in AVI format, and maybe playback by standard Windows Media Player without
having special video codec pre-installed.
Please note, when undertaking local recording of AVI video clips to SD Card, audio is not included. In
order to playback full video with audio simultaneously, please use free-bundle 36-channel advanced
remote surveillance system NVR software provided in Software CD.
2.
File Management. Check blank boxes then click [Del] in order to delete selected files from SD
Card.
SD Card will overwrite itself automatically when available space is full. Please choose a size of SD Card
that can at least record certain period of time. For instance, there is a network failure during a weekend
and no technician is available, thus no remote recording of events to advanced NVR surveillance system
is possible. In this case, you will need a SD Card for at least two days of local recording against
network failure. For extra security, make sure you will always verify SD archives per period of time or
whenever receive event notifications via e-mails.
b.
Log Book.
This section allows users to review all important events occurred to this IP Camera. Types of log
include: System Log, Video Motion Detection, I/O Detection (available only to selected models).
