Chapter 9 Glossary
ActiveX A standard that enables software components to interact with one another in a networked environment,
regardless of the language(s) used to create them. Web browsers may come into contact with ActiveX
controls, ActiveX documents, and ActiveX scripts. ActiveX controls are often downloaded and installed
automatically as required.
AF (Autofocus) A system by which the camera lens automatically focuses on a selected part of the subject.
Angle The field of view, relative to a standard lens in a 35mm still camera, expressed in degrees, for example,
30°. For practical purposes, this is the area that a lens can cover, where the angle of view is determined
by the focal length of the lens. A wide-angle lens has a short focal length and covers a wider angle of
view than standard or telephoto lenses, which have longer focal lengths.
ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) This protocol is used to associate an IP address to a hardware MAC address. A request is broadcast on
the local network to discover the MAC address for an IP address.
ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) A circuit designed for a specific application, as opposed to a general purpose circuit, such as a
microprocessor.
Aspect ratio A ratio of width to height in images. A common aspect ratio used for television screens and computer
monitors is 4:3. High-definition television (HDTV) uses an aspect ratio of 16:9.
Autoiris (or DC-Iris) This special type of iris is electrically controlled by the camera, to automatically regulate the amount of
light allowed to enter.
AVI (Audio Video Interleave) A video format that supports simultaneous playback of audio and video.
Bitmap A bitmap is a data file representing a rectangular grid of pixels. It defines a display space and color for
each pixel (or "bit") in the display space. This type of image is known as a "raster graphic." GIF and
JPEG are examples of image file types that contain bitmaps.
Because a bitmap uses this fixed raster method, it cannot easily be rescaled without losing definition.
Conversely, a vector graphic image uses geometrical shapes to represent the image, and can thus be
AirLive POE200CAMv2 User’s Manual 105 quickly rescaled.
Bit rate The bit rate (in kbit/s or Mbit/s) is often referred to as speed, but actually defines the number of bits/time
unit and not distance/time unit.
Bluetooth Bluetooth is an open standard for wireless transmission of voice and data between mobile devices (PCs,
handheld computers, telephones and printers).
Bonjour Also known as zero-configuration networking, Bonjour enables devices to automatically discover each
other on a network, without having to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. Bonjour is a
trademark of Apple Computer, Inc.
Broadband In network engineering terms, this describes transmission methods where two or more signals share the
same carrier. In more popular terminology, broadband is taken to mean high-speed data transmission.
CCD (Charged Coupled Device) This light-sensitive image device used in many digital cameras is a large integrated circuit that contains
hundreds of thousands of photo-sites (pixels) that convert light energy into electronic signals. Its size is
measured diagonally and can be 1/4", 1/3", 1/2" or 2/3".
CGI (Common Gateway Interface) A specification for communication between a web server and other (CGI) programs. For example, a
HTML page that contains a form might use a CGI program to process the form data once it is submitted.
CIF (Common Intermediate Format) CIF refers to the analog video resolutions 352x288 pixels (PAL) and 352x240 pixels (NTSC). See also
Resolution.
Client/Server Client/server describes the relationship between two computer programs in which one program, the
client, makes a service request from another program, the server, which fulfils the request. Typically,
multiple client programs share the services of a common server program. A web browser is a client
program that requests services (the sending of web pages or files) from a web server.
CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) CMOS is a widely used type of semiconductor that uses both negative and positive circuits. Since only
one of the circuit types is on at any given time, CMOS chips require less power than chips using just one
type of transistor. CMOS image sensors also allow processing circuits to be included on the same chip,
an advantage not possible with CCD sensors, which are also much more expensive to produce.
AirLive POE‐200CAMv2 User’s Manual 106 Codec In communications engineering, a codec is usually a coder/decoder. Codecs are used in integrated
circuits or chips that convert for example, analog video and audio signals into a digital format for
transmission. The codec also converts received digital signals back into analog format. A codec uses
analog-to-digital conversion and digital-to-analog conversion in the same chip.
Codec can also mean compression/decompression, in which case it is generally taken to mean an
algorithm or computer program for reducing the size of large files and programs.
Compression See Image Compression.
Contrast Defines the degree of difference between the lightest and darkest parts of an image or video stream.
DC-Iris This special type of iris is electrically controlled by the camera, to automatically regulate the amount of
light allowed to enter.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) DHCP is a protocol that lets network administrators automate and centrally manage the assignment of
Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to network devices in a network.
DHCP uses the concept of a "lease" or amount of time that a given IP address will be valid for a
computer. The lease time can vary, depending on how long a user is likely to require the network
connection at a particular location.
DHCP also supports static addresses for example, computers running web servers, which need a
permanent IP address.
DNS (Domain Name System) DNS is used to locate and translate Internet domain names into IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. A
domain name is a meaningful and easy-to-remember name for an Internet address. For example the
domain name www.example.com is much easier to remember than 192.0.34.166. The translation tables
for domain names are contained in Domain name servers.
Domain Server Domains can also be used by organizations who wish to centralize the management of their (Windows)
computers. Each user within a domain has an account that usually allows them to log in to and use any
computer in the domain, although restrictions may also apply. The domain server is the server that
authenticates the users on the network.
Duplex See Full-duplex.
AirLive POE200CAMv2 User’s Manual 107 Ethernet Ethernet is the most widely installed local area network technology. An Ethernet LAN typically uses
special grades of twisted pair wires. The most commonly installed Ethernet systems are 10BASE-T and
100BASE-T10, which provide transmission speeds up to 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps respectively.
ETRAX (Ethernet Token Ring AXIS) Axis' own microprocessor.
Factory default settings These are the settings that originally applied for a device when it was first delivered from the factory. If it
should become necessary to reset a device to its factory default settings, this will, for many devices,
completely reset any settings that were changed by the user.
Firewall A firewall works as a barrier between networks, for example, between a Local Area Network and the
Internet. The firewall ensures that only authorized users are allowed to access the one network from the
other. A firewall can be software running on a computer, or it can be a standalone hardware device.
Focal length Measured in millimeters, the focal length of a camera lens determines the width of the horizontal field of
view, which in turn is measured in degrees.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) An application protocol that uses the TCP/IP protocols. It is used to exchange files between
computers/devices on networks.
Frame A frame is a complete video image. In the 2:1 interlaced scanning format of the RS-170 and CCIR
formats, a frame is made up of two separate fields of 262.5 or 312.5 lines interlaced at 60 or 50 Hz to
form a complete frame, which appears at 30 or 25 Hz. In video cameras with a progressive scan, each
frame is scanned line-by-line and not interlaced; most are also displayed at 30 and 25 Hz.
Frame rate The frame rate used to describe the frequency at which a video stream is updated is measured in
frames per second (fps). A higher frame rate is advantageous when there is movement in the video
stream, as it maintains image quality throughout.
Full-duplex Transmission of data in two directions simultaneously. In an audio system this would describe for
example, a telephone systems. Half-duplex also provides bi-directional communication, but only in one
direction at a time, as in a walkie-talkie system. See also Simplex.
AirLive POE‐200CAMv2 User’s Manual 108 Gain Gain is the amplification factor and the extent to which an analog amplifier boosts the strength of a signal.
Amplification factors are usually expressed in terms of power. Decibel (dB) is the most common way of
quantifying the gain of an amplifier.
Gateway A gateway is a point in a network that acts as an entry point to another network. In a corporate network
for example, a computer server acting as a gateway often also acts as a proxy server and a firewall
server. A gateway is often associated with both a router, which knows where to direct a given packet of
data that arrives at the gateway, and a switch, which furnishes the actual path in and out of the gateway
for a given packet.
GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) GIF is one of the most common file formats used for images in web pages. There are two versions of the
format, 87a and 89a. Version 89a supports animations, i.e. a short sequence of images within a single
GIF file. GIF89a can also be specified for interlaced presentation.
GOV (Group Of VOPs) A group of VOPs is the basic unit of an MPEG-4 video stream. The GOV contains different types and
numbers of VOPs (I-VOPs, P-VOPs, etc.) as determined by the GOV length and GOV structure. See
also VOP.
GOV length The GOV length determines the number of images (VOPs) in the GOV structure. See also GOV and
VOP.
GOV structure The GOV structure describes the composition of an MPEG-4 video stream, as regards the type of
images (I-VOPs or P-VOPs) included in the stream, and their internal order. See also GOV and VOP.
Half-duplex See Full-duplex.
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) HTML is the set of "markup" symbols or codes inserted in a file intended for display in web browser. The
markup tells the browser how to display the page's words and images for the user.
HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) HTTP is the set of rules for exchanging files (text, graphic images, sound, video, and other multimedia
files) on the web. The HTTP protocol runs on top of the TCP/IP suite of protocols.
Hub A (network) hub is used to connect multiple devices to the network. The hub transmits all data to all
devices connected to it, whereas a switch will only transmit the data to the device it is specifically
intended for.
AirLive POE200CAMv2 User’s Manual 109 IEEE 802.11 A family of standards for wireless LANs. The 802.11 standard supports 1 or 2 Mbit/s transmission on the
2.4 GHz band. IEEE 802.11b specifies an 11 Mbit/s data rate on the 2.4 GHz band, while 802.11a allows
up to 54 Mbit/s on the 5 GHz band.
Image compression Image compression minimizes the file size (in bytes) of an image. Two of the most common compressed
image formats are JPEG and GIF.
Interlacing Interlaced video is video captured at 50 pictures (known as fields) per second, of which every 2
consecutive fields (at half height) are then combined into 1 frame. Interlacing was developed many
years ago for the analog TV world and is still used widely today. It provides good results when viewing
motion in standard TV pictures, although there is always some degree of distortion in the image.
To view interlaced video on for example, a computer monitor, the video must first be de-interlaced, to
produce progressive video, which consists of complete images, one after the other, at 25 frames per
second. See also Progressive scan.
IP (Internet Protocol) The Internet Protocol is a method transmitting data over a network. Data to be sent is divided into
individual and completely independent "packets." Each computer (or host) on the Internet has at least
one address that uniquely identifies it from all others, and each data packet contains both the sender's
address and the receiver's address.
The Internet Protocol ensures that the data packets all arrive at the intended address. As IP is a
connectionless protocol, which means that there is no established connection between the
communication end-points, packets can be sent via different routes and do not need to arrive at the
destination in the correct order.
Once the data packets have arrived at the correct destination, another protocol - Transmission Control
Protocol (TCP) - puts them in the right order. See also TCP.
IP Address An IP address is simply an address on an IP network used by a computer/device connected to that
network. IP addresses allow all the connected computers/devices to find each other and to pass data
back and forth.
To avoid conflicts, each IP address on any given network must be unique. An IP address can be
assigned as fixed, so that it does not change, or it can be assigned dynamically (and automatically) by
DHCP.
An IP address consists of four groups (or quads) of decimal digits separated by periods, for example,
130.5.5.25. Different parts of the address represent different things. Some part will represent the
AirLive POE‐200CAMv2 User’s Manual 110 network number or address, and some other part will represent the local machine address.
See also IP (Internet Protocol).
I-VOP See VOP.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) Together with the GIF file format, JPEG is an image file type commonly used on the web. A JPEG image
is a bitmap, and usually has the file suffix '.jpg' or ".jpeg." When creating a JPEG image, it is possible to
configure the level of compression to use. As the lowest compression (i.e. the highest quality) results in
the largest file, there is a trade-off between image quality and file size.
kbit/s (kilobits per second) A measure of the bit rate, i.e. the rate at which bits are passing a given point. See also Bit rate.
LAN (Local Area Network) A LAN is a group of computers and associated devices that typically share common resources within a
limited geographical area.
Linux Linux is an open source operating system within the Unix family. Because of its robustness and
availability, Linux has won popularity in the open source community and among commercial application
developers.
MAC address (Media Access Control address) A MAC address is a unique identifier associated with a piece of networking equipment, or more
specifically, its interface with the network. For example, the network card in a computer has its own MAC
address.
Manual iris This is the opposite to an auto iris, i.e. the camera iris must be adjusted manually to regulate the amount
of light allowed to reach the image sensor.
Mbit/s (Megabits per second) A measure of the bit rate, i.e. the rate at which bits are passing a given point. Commonly used to give the
"speed" of a network. A LAN might run at 10 or 100 Mbit/s. See also Bit rate.
Monitor A monitor is very similar to a standard television set, but lacks the electronics to pick up regular
television signals.
Motion JPEG Motion JPEG is a simple compression/decompression technique for networked video. Latency is low
and image quality is guaranteed, regardless of movement or complexity of the image. Image quality is
controlled by adjusting the compression level, which in turn provides control over the file size, and
thereby the bit rate. High-quality individual images from the Motion JPEG stream are easily extracted.
AirLive POE200CAMv2 User’s Manual 111 See also JPEG.
Megapixel See Pixel.
MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) The Moving Picture Experts Group develops standards for digital video and audio compression. It
operates under the auspices of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The MPEG
standards are an evolving series, each designed for a different purpose.
MPEG-2 MPEG-2 is the designation for a group of audio and video coding standards, and is typically used to
encode audio and video for broadcast signals, including digital satellite and Cable TV. MPEG-2, with
some modifications, is also the coding format used by standard commercial DVD movies.
MPEG-4 MPEG-4 is a group of audio and video coding standards and related technology. The primary uses for
the MPEG-4 standard are web (streaming media) and CD distribution, conversational (videophone), and
broadcast television.
Most of the features included in MPEG-4 are left to individual developers to decide whether to implement
them or not. This means that there are probably no complete implementations of the entire MPEG-4 set
of standards. To deal with this, the standard includes the concept of "profiles" and "levels", allowing a
specific set of capabilities to be defined in a manner appropriate for a subset of applications.
Multicast Bandwidth-conserving technology that reduces bandwidth usage by simultaneously delivering a single
stream of information to multiple network recipients.
Multiplexer A multiplexer is a high-speed switch that provides full-screen images from up to 16 analog cameras.
Multiplexers can playback everything that happened on any one camera with no interference from the
other cameras on the system.
Network connectivity The physical (wired or wireless) and logical (protocol) connection of a computer network or an individual
device to a network, such as the Internet or a LAN.
NTSC (National Television System Committee) NTSC is the television and video standard in the United States. NTSC delivers 525 lines at 60
half-frames/second.
NWay - is a telecommunications protocol used to automatically negotiate the highest available
transmission speed between network devices. The NWay protocol is also known as auto-negotiation or
auto-sensing.
AirLive POE‐200CAMv2 User’s Manual 112 OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) This is a designation for companies that manufacture equipment which is then marketed and sold to
other companies under their own names.
PAL (Phase Alternating Line) PAL is the dominant television standard in Europe. PAL delivers 625 lines at 50 half-frames/second.
PEM (Privacy Enhanced Mail) An early standard for securing electronic mail. The PEM-format is often used for representing an HTTPS
certificate or certificate request.
Ping Ping is a basic network program used diagnostically to check the status of a network host or device.
Ping can be used to see if a particular network address (IP address or host name) is occupied or not, or
if the host at that address is responding normally. Ping can be run from for example, the Windows
Command prompt or the command line in UNIX.
Pixel A pixel is one of the many tiny dots that make up a digital image. The color and intensity of each pixel
represents a tiny area of the complete image.
PoE (Power over Ethernet) Power over Ethernet provides power to a network device via the same cable as used for the network
connection. This is very useful for IP-Surveillance and remote monitoring applications in places where it
may be too impractical or expensive to power the device from a power outlet.
PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) A protocol that uses a serial interface for communication between two network devices. For example, a
PC connected by a phone line to a server.
PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol) A protocol (set of communication rules) that allows corporations to extend their own corporate network
through private "tunnels" over the public Internet. In this way a corporation can effectively use a WAN
(Wide Area Network) as a large single LAN (Local Area Network). This kind of interconnection is known
as a virtual private network (VPN). See also VPN.
Pre/post alarm images The images from immediately before and after an alarm. These images are stored in a buffer for later
retrieval.
Progressive scan Progressive scan, as opposed to interlaced video, scans the entire picture, line by line every sixteenth of
a second. In other words, captured images are not split into separate fields as in interlaced scanning.
Computer monitors do not need interlace to show the picture on the screen, but instead show them
progressively, on one line at a time in perfect order, i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 etc., so there is virtually no
AirLive POE200CAMv2 User’s Manual 113 "flickering" effect. In a surveillance application, this can be critical when viewing detail within a moving
image, such as a person running. A high-quality monitor is required to get the best from progressive
scan. See also Interlacing.
Protocol A special set of rules governing how two entities will communicate. Protocols are found at many levels of
communication, and there are hardware protocols and software protocols.
Proxy server In an organization that uses the Internet, a proxy server acts as an intermediary between a workstation
user and the Internet. This provides security, administrative control, and a caching service. Any proxy
server associated with a gateway server, or part of a gateway server, effectively separates the
organization’s network from the outside network and the local firewall. It is the firewall server that
protects the network against outside intrusion.
A proxy server receives requests for Internet services (such as web page requests) from many users. If
the proxy server is also a cache server, it looks in its local cache of previously downloaded web pages. If
it finds the page, it is returned to the user without forwarding the request to the Internet. If the page is not
in the cache, the proxy server, acting as a client on behalf of the user, uses one of its own IP addresses
to request the page from another server over the Internet. When the requested page is returned, the
proxy server forwards it to the user that originally requested it.
PTZ Pan, tilt and zoom.
Resolution Image resolution is a measure of how much detail a digital image can hold: the greater the resolution,
the greater the level of detail. Resolution can be specified as the number of pixel-columns (width) by the
number of pixel-rows (height), for example, 320x240.
Alternatively, the total number of pixels (usually in megapixels) in the image can be used. In analog
systems it is also common to use other format designations, such as CIF, QCIF, 4CIF, etc.
RTCP (Real-Time Control Protocol) RTCP provides support for real-time conferencing of groups of any size within an intranet. This support
includes source identification and support for gateways like audio and video bridges as well as
multicast-to-unicast translators.
RTCP offers quality-of-service feedback from receivers to the multicast
group as well as support for the synchronization of different media streams.
RTP (Real-Time Transport Protocol) RTP is an Internet protocol for the transport of real-time data, for example, audio and video. It can be
used for media-on-demand as well as interactive services such as Internet telephony.
AirLive POE‐200CAMv2 User’s Manual 114 RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) RTSP is a control protocol, and a starting point for negotiating transports such as RTP, multicast and
Unicast, and for negotiating codecs.
RTSP can be considered a "remote control" for controlling the media stream delivered by a media server.
RTSP servers typically use RTP as the protocol for the actual transport of audio/video data.
Router A device that determines the next network point to which a packet should be forwarded on its way to its
final destination. A router creates and/or maintains a special routing table that stores information on how
best to reach certain destinations. A router is sometimes included as part of a network switch. See also
switch.
Server In general, a server is a computer program that provides services to other computer programs in the
same or other computers. A computer running a server program is also frequently referred to as a server.
In practice, the server may contain any number of server and client programs. A web server is the
computer program that supplies the requested HTML pages or files to the client (browser).
Sharpness This is the control of fine detail within a picture. This feature was originally introduced into color TV sets
that used notch filter decoders. This filter took away all high frequency detail in the black and white
region of the picture. The sharpness control attempted to put some of that detail back in the picture.
Sharpness controls are mostly superfluous in today's high-end TVs. The only logical requirement for it
nowadays is on a VHS machine.
Simplex In simplex operation, a network cable or communications channel can only send information in one
direction.
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) SMTP is used for sending and receiving e-mail. However, as it is "simple," it is limited in its ability to
queue messages at the receiving end, and is usually used with one of two other protocols, POP3 or
IMAP. These other protocols allow the user to save messages in a server mailbox and download them
periodically from the server.
SMTP authentication is an extension of SMTP, whereby the client is required to log into the mail server
before or during the sending of email. It can be used to allow legitimate users to send email while
denying the service to unauthorized users, such as spammers.
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) SNMP forms part of the Internet Protocol suite, as defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force. The
protocol can support monitoring of network-attached devices for any conditions that warrant
administrative attention.
AirLive POE200CAMv2 User’s Manual 115 Sockets Sockets are a method for communication between a client program and a server program over a
network. A socket is defined as "the endpoint in a connection." Sockets are created and used with a set
of programming requests or "function calls" sometimes called the sockets application programming
interface (API).
SSL/TSL (Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security) These two protocols (SSL is succeeded by TSL) are cryptographic protocols that provide secure
communication on a network. SSL is commonly used over HTTP to form HTTPS, as used for example,
on the Internet for electronic financial transactions. SSL uses public key certificates to verify the identity
of the server.
