Number of Video Servers and Cameras
The number of video servers and cameras which can be supported by FlexWATCH Manager is
limited by the software version. If you bought 36channel version, you can register up to 36 servers
in the program, but if the total number of cameras across the registered servers exceeds 36cameras,
no more registration can be done. Also the total camera number is counted based on the number of
cameras supported by the model regardless of actual connected cameras to the server.
For example if you buy 9 units of 6channel Video servers and want to connect 4 cameras for each
server and want to use 36channel FlexWATCH Manger, you can not do that and you need to buy
64channel FlexWATCH Manager.
If you buy 36 units of 1channel Network cameras, then you can register and viewer up to 36channel
without any problem.
Therefore, you need to be careful about the number of video servers and channels you would like to
connect. You are required to contact local distributor to extend the number of video channels.
)
)
Demo version allows you to register up to 2video servers and 9 cameras with 1GB
recording.
When you register servers in FlexWATCH Manage, you need to consider the number of
channels. For instance, if you registered 3units of FW3450, you already used up 12 channels (4ch x
3 unit).
4.2. FlexWATCH Server Registration with Dynamic IP
FwManager can control FlexWATCH servers which are connected to Dynamic IP network. But
FlexWATCH should be registered in AOIP (Always-On-IP) server which is IP gateway for any
FlexWATCH server and enables FlexWATCH server to be installed on the Dynamic IP or Private IP
network and users can access the video server at anytime and anywhere.
A)
Check out whether the FlexWATCH server is correctly connected to AOIP server and you
can view live through standard web browser. If not, FlexWATCH Manager can not be
connected to the FlexWATCH server on the Dynamic IP network.
B)
Get S/N Number of that FlexWATCH server, since you need to type in 12 digits of S/N in
the information field. Please refer to the S/N written on the attached product label on the
bottom of a product.
C)
M1103-4
Check [AOIP Function] box and enter the 12 digits S/N. Please click “Get Info”, then you will

automatically get Server Model, Video Format, Server IP address, etc.
D)
You may also adjust the Maximum Frame Rate in MJPEG mode. After all values are set, you
can click OK to finish the registration.
)
If you need further information or questions regarding AOIP server, or FlexWATCH
products, please contact your local supplier or Seyeon Tech Co., Ltd.
(sales@flexwatch.com).
4.3. Server Property Setting
Once Server Registration is done, it is recommended that you set up server property such as Server
Name, Video Frame rate and Server Admin ID & Password. If you do not set up this option, default
setting will be applied. You can change Server Property at any time.
a) Move mouse over the server name and click right mouse button. (Or click server name and click
the server properties icon
.)
b) Select [Properties]. Then click Server [Info] tap from the option

To view and to control video and other setting values, you need to type in administration ID &
Password of respective FlexWATCH server. If root Password is changed, you need to change Root
Password accordingly to control the video.
Note that you can view cameras with other access level set up in the respective FlexWATCH
server such as power_user, User, Guest level. If access level is not set up in the FlexWATCH server,
anyone see view video through FwManager program.
Thus, you need to set up access control option in the FlexWATCH server
Server Name Change
Server name will appear in the Server Registration window. Thus, it is recommended that you give
right name to easily identify the server by its name from the main screen.
MJPEG Dedicated – Frame Rate Control
You can set the video transmission speed for the server by configuring [Maximum Frame Rate] option.
If you set up Maximum Frame Rate, recording frame rate will be less than the Maximum Frame Rate.
For example, if you set Maximum Frame Rate at 10FPS, the maximum recording frame rate is less
than 10 FPS.

TIPS
If multiple servers are installed and you have limited network bandwidth available, you
need to reduce frame rate by reducing actual frame rate in the server property option.
)
Maximum frame rate does not mean that selected frame rate can be achieved under
any circumstances, since it depends on the network bandwidth and PC performance.

FlexWATCH Manager enables you to display as many cameras as registered in the program on a
single screen. For example, if you purchased FlexWATCH Manager 36 channel and installed 36
cameras, you can simultaneously display all those cameras on the computer screen.
Registered cameras under a group of the Group Mode will be displayed on the screen following the
order of Server ID given to the server when you register server in the program.
