System Connections

VS-540-HDSDI IP Cameras can be connected in either 1 to 1 connection where one VS-540-HDSDI is connected to one PC client or a decoder system or 1 to many connections where one VS-540-

HDSDI can be connected to several PCs and decoder systems. (The VS-101 video server can work as a video decoder which takes the data from a video server or IP camera, decodes and outputs analog or digital video.)

Topology

Generally, VS-540-HDSDI and PC or a decoder is connected in 1-to-1 mode or 1-to many configuration.

1:1 Connection .

Site

Remote Center

In this configuration, a site can be monitored from many remote central locations. Although up to 64 PCs or decoders can be connected to one VS-540-HDSDI, in the real network environment, network bandwidth can limit the maximum connections. Functionally, the central monitoring system (CMS) software provided can replace the decoder.

Multicast Mode

If the network supports multicasting, a large number of decoders can be used to receive video effectively from a VS-540-HDSDI using a single streaming of video and audio. However, multicast mode is possible only when the network environment supports multicast.

Relay

Site

Center 1(Decoder) Center 2 (Decoder)

Video and audio data can be retransmitted from one center to another center. This arrangement is useful when the network bandwidth to the site is limited and there are more than one center wanting to monitor the site.

Resolution

This allows you to Select the video encoding resolution.

Eighteen resolutions from 352 x 240 to 1920 x 1080 are available.

The Scaling option is used when the encoding resolution is different from the input compression.

Without the Scaling option, input video will be croped according to the encoding resolution. On the other hand, if Scaling is selected, the input video will be adjusted according to the encoding resolution.

Frame rate

Select the maximum number of frames per second for the video stream.

A frame rate of 1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,15,20,25 and 30 can be selected. The actual frame rate of video can be less than the maximum frame rate set due to any network bandwidth limitation.

Preference

Select encoding mode to control video quality: Quality or Bit rate.

If „Bit rate‟ is selected, the video encoding will be affected by the „Bit rate‟ value entered. Therefore,

'Bit rate' mode is CBR (Constant Bit rate) encoding.

If „Quality‟ is selected, the video encoding will be affected by the quality of image selected. Therefore,

'Quality' mode is VBR (Variable Bit Rate) encoding.

Quality

Select the required Video quality. Eight levels of quality are available.

Quality mode (VBR encoding) adjusts the bit rate according to the image complexity, using higher bandwidth for increased activity in the video and lower bandwidth for decreased activity.

For active video content such as sports, or when network bandwidth is limited, It is reccomended that CBR or Bit Rate encoding be used.

Domain Name System (DNS) is a database system that translates a computer's fully qualified domain name into an IP address. Networked computers use IP addresses to locate and connect to each other, but IP addresses can be difficult for people to remember. For example, on the web, it's much easier to remember the domain name www.amazon.com than it is to remember its corresponding IP address (207.171.166.48). Each organization that maintains a computer network will have at least one server handling DNS queries. That server, called a name server, will hold a list of all the IP addresses within its network, plus a cache of IP addresses for recently accessed computers outside the network.

Port

Base Port

Enter the Base Port number.

The Network base port is used for communication between systems.

In order for VS-540-HDSDI and remote systems (decoder or CMS, NVR software) to be connected, the port numbers must be identically set.

HTTP Port

Enter the HTTP port used for web-based connections.

RTSP Port

Enter the RTSP port used for RTSP-based connection. The default RTSP port is 554.

RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) is a standard for connected client(s) to control streaming data over the World Wide Web.

Authentication

RTSP Authentication

If the RTSP Authentication set to ON, the user must enter correct User ID and Password when any RTSP client is connected.

HTTP API Authentication

When HTTP API authentication set to ON, HTTP Authentication is asked for all clients which use

HTTP API .

RTP Session

RTP (Real-Time Transport Protocol) is an Internet protocol used for transmitting single real-time multimedia data such as audio and video to a select group of connected clients. Normally RTSP uses

RTP to format packets of multimedia content. RTP Session menu is used when the RTP only streaming without RTSP connection. RTP stream will be transmitted to the destination set. The SDP (Session

Description Protocol) file can be found in the server, and a client can retrieve it using http connection.

SNMP

The VS-540-HDSDI can be used as an SNMP agent. It is compatible to both SNMPv1 and

SNMPvec. Settings for using SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) are as follow:

- SNMP Listen Port: This port is used for connecting external devices when the system operates

as an SNMP client. SNMP is not used when setting a 0 value.

- SNMP Trap Destination IP: Set the SNMP Trap Destination IP.

- SNMP Trap Destination Port: Set the SNMP Trap Destination Port. SNMP is not used by setting 0 value.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used by network management systems to communicate with network elements. SNMP lets TCP/IP-based network management clients use a

TCP/IP-based internetwork to exchange information about the configuration and status of nodes.

SNMP can also generate trap messages used to report significant TCP/IP events asynchronously to interested clients. For example, a router could send a message if one of its redundant power supplies fails or a printer could send an SNMP trap when it is out of paper.

Multicast

Multicast IP

The multicast IP address selection range is between 224.0.1.0 and 238.255.255.255. The selection can be used only when media protocol is set to Multicast. The Multicast menu is used for the Multicast connection request from a decoder or CMS / NVR software to transmit Multicast stream to the decoder or CMS / NVR software. The multicast address must be the same for the system to be connected using multicast protocol.

When there is more than one client connected to theVS-570-HDSI, due to bandwidth difference among the clients some of them may not have enough bandwidth to receive the encoded stream completely. In this case,

it is possible to select the way to stream video to clients as follows:

- Frame Drop Mode: Encoding will be adjusted to the client with the highest bandwidth. Clients with limited bandwidth may not receive all the frames.

- Suppression Mode: Bit rate and frame rate are adjusted most efficiently for all clients. In this case, all clients can be affected by the averaged bit rate and frame rate.

Address Info

The following network information is displayed as Read only:

- IP Address: The Camera's own IP address. This information is useful when the camera‟s IP mode is set to DHCP.

- Domain Name: If the camera is registered at a DDNS server, the registered domain name is displayed.

- MAC Address: Displays the MAC address of the camera. If the camera is registered at a DDNS server, the MAC address is used in DDNS registration.

- Connecting: Client IP Addresses that are currently connected to the system are listed.

VS-540-HDSDI User Manual

When a decoder instead of a PC client is connected to a VS-540-HDSDI, one system becomes a Local system and the other a Remote system. Generally a system which is being used by the user is called as

Local system. Then, actions for events can be configured for events from the remote system as well as for local system. For example, it is possible to turn on an alarm device in local (center) decoder system when a sensor device in remote (site) IP camera is triggered. Local section configures the actions for events from local (self) system, and configuration activates local devices. Remote sections configure the actions for events from the remote (peer) system.

The following table lists the possible actions for events:

Action Description

Alarm out Triggers alarm (relay) port.

E-mail

Sends E-mail to the specified address, an

AVI file can be attached.

DSS (Digital Shutter Speed) mode (Auto or Off) can be selected. When DSS mode is Auto, from

1/2 to 1/60 DSS Limit is available. Back Light Compensation can be selected.

- Manual: 21 steps of Shutter, 18 steps of Iris and 8 steps of Gain can be set manually.

- Shutter Priority: 21 steps (1/2 ~ 1/10,000) of Shutter Speed can be set manually. The Iris and Gain are set automatically, according to the brightness of the subject.

- Iris Priority: 18 steps (F1.8 to Close) of Iris can be set manually. The Shutter Speed and Gain are set automatically, according to the brightness of the subject.

- Bright: The bright control function adjusts both the Gain and Iris using an internal algorithm according to a brightness level set by user. Exposure is controlled by Gain when dark and by iris when bright. As both Gain and Iris are fixed, this mode is used when exposing at a fixed camera sensitivity.

- Spot Light: Avoids a situation where the face of the subject is over-illuminated, and becomes whitish. In Spot AE, a particular section of the subject can be designated, and then that portion of the image can be weighted and a value computed so that Iris and Gain can be optimized to obtain an image.
