Chapter 1. Product Overview
1.1. Network Camera Introduction
Box camera series are professional network cameras that use Internet Protocol (IP)
to transmit video streams and control signals over networks. Capable of operating
over both LANs and WANs, they provide a complete budget-conscious remote
surveillance solution that are ultra clear and highly integrated. Box camera series
combine a user-friendly interface and simplified installation with a powerful
feature set to provide users an easy upgrade path to new digital surveillance
system in a virtual environment. These highlights make box camera series ideal
choices for environments that require remote surveillance or video transmission.
11
1.2. Features and Benefits
Box IP camera is a cutting-edge digital video transmission device. It can
compress and transmit real-time images of outstanding quality using a
reasonable amount of bandwidth through a standard TCP/IP network. The
following features make this IP camera an outstanding choice when building an
intelligent IP surveillance system:

High Video Quality
High image quality is essential in security surveillance applications. It is
important to be able to clearly capture an incident in progress and
identify persons or objects involved. A network camera gives exceptional
video quality, even greater than that of traditional analog cameras, which
means that more detail or larger areas can be covered.

H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG Compression
Motion JPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264 (also known as MPEG-4 Part 10/AVC),
each employ different techniques to reduce the amount of data
transferred and stored in a network video system. Network cameras that
support multiple compression standards are ideal for maximum flexibility
and integration possibilities.

Dual Streaming
Dual-stream design enables simultaneous support of real-time video
monitoring, video recording, or mobile viewing applications which require
different resolutions, compression formats and frame rates.

MicroSD/SDHC Card Slot
IP surveillance relies on network connectivity, making it susceptible to
attacks on the network between the camera and recording facilities. With
onboard recording capability, our network cameras can truly be online
24/7. The microSD/SDHC card slot design ensures sufficient recording
capacity for an over-weekend period even at full frame rate and high
resolution.
12

Tampering Detection
This is an intelligent video analytics application available only in selected
network cameras in the market. When a camera is manipulated in any way
(e.g. accidental redirection, blocking, defocusing, spray-painted, covered
or damaged), it can automatically trigger recording and alert notifications.

Power-over-Ethernet
The built-in Power-over-Ethernet support reduces cabling and installation
costs, and enables users to consolidate power facilities for higher
reliability. With PoE, a camera can still operate in the event of a power
failure if it is connected to a centralized backup power with an
Uninterruptible Power Supply.
Other detailed features include the following:

Supports up to 10 simultaneous users.

Built-in web server to allow real-time remote surveillance and control
using standard web browsers.

Built-in microSD card slot for local backup.

Supports dynamic IP, LAN, and the Internet (ADSL, Cable modem).

Supports most network protocols including: HTTP, TCP/IP, DNS, DHCP,
RTSP, PPPoE.

Supports 2-way audio.

Automatically adapts image compression rate to available bandwidth.

Supports image recording and still image capture.

Provides Signal loss and motion-detection alerts (adjustable area and
sensitivity level).

Supports most PTZ camera protocols.

Self-recovery feature automatically re-establishes broken network
connections.
