The camera provides the ability to view the cameras monitored through your mobile phone as a live video
stream, it supports the telecommunications standard of 3GPP streaming format. All 3G enabled mobile
devices and most 2G phones that support the streaming standard of 3GPP are compatible.
Simultaneous High-Speed MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG
The camera allows live the MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG streams simultaneously. The camera features
MPEG4 compression which compresses the video to make transmission faster and more efficient. The
MPEG4 and MJPEG image can be transmitted at 30 frames per second.
Simultaneous HTTP and RTSP streaming
The camera support HTTP and RTSP/RTP/RTCP protocol, and provide multiple HTTP and RTSP streams
simultaneously.
Audio Transmission
The camera comes with a built-in microphone for audio monitoring as well as video monitoring. Sound
captured by the camera is transmitted to the client’s PC.
Snapshot and Recording
You can capture a still image of the camera view on your PC and save the image as JPG or BMP format file.
You also can record the video and audio captured by the camera on your PC and save as an ASF format
file.
5
Motion Detection Function
The camera can detect changes in the image being monitored. Once a change occurs it will send an email
to up to 3 email addresses with a video file or snapshot attached. The video file or snapshot can also be
uploaded to an FTP server. In addition the camera can be configured to send images at regular intervals.
OSD Function
OSD (On Screen Display) function can display system name, date and time, and user-defined on
screen.
Authentication
An authentication window requires you to enter the user ID and password. Password security can
prevent unregistered users from accessing your camera. Users can select Basic Authentication method
or Digest Access Authentication method.

ADVANCED SETTINGS
Port Forwarding
The UPnP Setup of camera show a method of Port Forwarding(see page 30 for details),but some routers
maybe can’t support UPnP Port Forwarding, therefore, users need to configure Port Forwarding manually.
Firewall security features built into the router may prevent users from accessing the camera over the Internet.
The router connects to the Internet over a series of “ports”. The default ports used by the camera are usually
blocked from access over the Internet, therefore, these ports need to be made accessible. This is achieved
using the Port Forwarding function on the router. The ports used by the camera must be opened through the
router for remote access to your camera. Check your router’s user manual for specific instructions on how to
open and route ports on you router.
Important: Some ISPs block access to port 80 and other commonly used Internet ports. Check with your
ISP in order to open the appropriate ports. If your ISP does not pass traffic on port 80, you will need to
change the camera’s default port number from 80 to a different number such as 9000.
Viewing Your Camera
To access the camera from a computer on your local network, simply enter the IP Address of the Camera
followed by a colon and the camera’s port number. It is not necessary to enter the colon and port number if
you are using the camera’s default port 80.
To access the camera from the internet, type the external IP Address of the router, followed by a colon, and
the port number of your camera (e.g., Http://210.118.166.68:9000).
50
Proxy Server Setting
A proxy server may prevent you from connecting to the camera in some corporate environments. The web
browser can set up the IP address communication without using a proxy server. Consult your ISP or network
administrator for further details.
Note: A proxy server is generally used to maintain security on a network when connected to the internet.
The proxy server may cause lack of image quality and delays in refresh intervals. Consult your ISP or
network administrator for further details.
1. Start Internet Explorer.
2. Select [Tools] –> [Internet Options...] –> [Connections] tab and click [LAN Settings].
Verify that the Use a proxy server check box is not checked. When checked, click [Advanced...].
When not checked, click [Cancel]. Your proxy server settings should not cause any problems.
3. Enter the IP address of your camera into the Do not use proxy server for addresses beginning
with data field.
4. Click [OK] on all of the opened windows.
51
Reset the camera
There are two ways to reset the camera back to its factory defaults:
1. Press the Reset button on the side of the camera through the pin hole.
2. Through the camera setup under the heading Backup or Reset (see page 47 for details)

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
1. Network Camera: A stand-alone device which allows users to view live, full motion video from anywhere
on a computer network, even over the Internet, using a standard web browser.
2. JPEG: A standard image format, used widely for photographs, also known as JPG.
3. IEEE 802.11b/g: The specifications developed by the IEEE for wireless network technology. It provides
11 Mbps transmission in the 2.4GHz band usage.
4. WEP: Wireless Equivalent Privacy. A security protocol for wireless network defined in the IEEE 802.11b/g
standard. WEP aims to provide security by encrypting data over radio waves so that it is protected as it is
transmitted from one end point to another.
5. Adhoc Mode: A wireless network system in which devices communicate directly with each other, without
the use of a wireless router.
6. Infrastructure Mode: One of the wireless network system in which devices communicate with each other
by first going through the wireless router.
7. IP Address: The unique 32 bit number assigned to each computer connected to the Internet. IP numbers
are used by the TCP/IP protocol to route packets of data to their destinations.
8. TCP/IP: The collection of "protocols" underlying the functioning of the Internet. Each computer connected
to the Internet is identified by a unique IP Address.
9. SMTP: Simple Mail Transfer Protocol.
10. FTP: File Transfer Protocol. Network cameras equipped with an embedded operating system, such as
Linux, can use FTP to send images to a website.
11. DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is a set of rules used by communications devices such as
a computer, router or network adapter to allow the device to request and obtain an IP address from a server
which has a list of addresses available for assignment.
12 UPnP: Universal Plug and Play is an architecture for pervasive peer-to-peer network connectivity of
intelligent appliances and wireless devices.
13. DDNS: DDNS is a method of keeping a domain name linked to a dynamic IP address with your Network
Camera. You can set up your DDNS service and the device will automatically update your DDNS server
each time it alter a different IP address.
14. Time server: A time server consists of a computer networking device that reads the actual time from a
reference clock and distributes this information to its clients using a computer network.
15. WPA: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) is a class of systems to secure wireless (Wi-Fi)
computer networks. WPA implements the majority of the IEEE 802.11i standard, and was intended as an
intermediate measure to take the place of WEP while 802.11i was prepared.
