VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
Overview
VIVOTEK unveils its first intelligent network camera IP7251 in the line of progressive-scan series
which incorporates embedded video content analysis. The intelligent detection effectively raises the
sensitivity of this network camera and makes your monitoring tasks easier with correct information.
Incorporating a powerful digital signal processor (DSP) dedicated to the video content analysis,
it features three reliable and helpful detections including tampering detection, moving object
detection, and loitering detection. With the tampering detection, it is capable of detecting incidents
such as shooting redirection, blocking or defocusing of cameras, or even spray-painted. For motion
detection function, it is capable of distinguishing between creature’s motions and still backgrounds
or natural movements like swaying trees, waves or sunset so as to prevent the false alarms from
environmental noise. Additionally, a suspicious object in the predefined area (window) will trigger
alarms once the dwelling time of the object is longer than the given time. By embedding the video
content analysis into the network camera rather instead of back-end software platform, IP7251
greatly reduces the server workload, network bandwidth, and storage requirement. IP7251 is
achieved with a powerful combination of cutting-edge features: a Sony progressive scan CCD
sensor, a removable IR-cut filter, simultaneous dual streams, PoE compliant with 802.3af, 3GPP
mobile surveillance, two-way audio by SIP protocol, and digital I/O.
With the intelligent detection function, VIVOTEK IP7251 can effectively prevents unwanted noise
components from accidentally triggering an alarm, providing a more reliable detection method, thus
reducing the number of false alarms.

Options, MPEG-4 Protocol Options and MP4 Saving Options. When completed with the settings
on this page, click Save on the page bottom to take effect.
Stream Options
The Network Camera supports MPEG-4 and MJPEG dual streams. For more information,
please refer to Video settings on page 35.
MPEG-4 Media Options
Select to stream video or audio data. This works only when the video mode is set to MPEG-4.
MPEG-4 Protocol Options
Depending on your network environment, there are four transmission modes of MPEG-4
streaming:
UDP unicast: This protocol allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However, network
packets may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be broken. Activate UDP connection
when occasions require time-sensitive responses and the video quality is less important. Note that each
unicast client connecting to the server takes up additional bandwidth and the Network Camera allows up
to ten simultaneous accesses.
UDP multicast: This protocol allows multicast-enabled routers to forward network packets to all clients
requesting streaming media. This helps to reduce the network transmission load of the Network Camera
while serving multiple clients at the same time. Note that to utilize this feature, the Network Camera must
be configured to enable multicast streaming at the same time. For more information, please refer to
RTSP Streaming on page 30.
User's Manual - 19
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
TCP: This protocol guarantees the complete delivery of streaming data and thus provides better video
quality. Nevertheless, the downside with this protocol is that its real-time effect is not as good as that of
the UDP protocol.
HTTP: This protocol allows the same quality as TCP protocol and you don’t need to open specific port
for streaming under some network environments. Users inside a firewall can utilize this protocol to allow
streaming data to come through.
MP4 Saving Options
Users can record the live video as they are watching it by clicking

Video quality settings for stream 1 / stream 2: You can set up two seperate streams for the Network
Camera for different viewing devices. For example, set the Network Camera to a smaller frame size and
a lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones. Or, set the Network Camera to a larger video size
and a higher bit rate for live viewing on web browsers.
■ Mode
The Network Camera offers two choices of video compression standards for real-time viewing: MPEG-4
and MJPEG.
If MPEG-4 is selected, it is streamed in RTSP protocol. There are four dependent parameters provided
in MPEG-4 mode for video performance adjustment.
■ Frame size
Select the video size. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth. The frame sizes are
selectable in the following resolutions: 176 x 144, 320 x 240 and 640 x 480.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximal refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for a smoother video
quality.
If the power line frequency is set to 50Hz, the frame rates are selectable at the following rates: 1fps,
2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps and 25fps. If the power line frequency is set to 60Hz, the
frame rates are selectable at the following rates: 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps,
25fps and 30fps.
■ Intra frame period
Determine how often to plant an I frame. The shorter the duration, the more likely you will get a
better video quality, but at the cost of higher network bandwidth consumption. Select the intra frame
period from the following duration: 1/4 second, 1/2 second, 1 second, 2 seconds, 3 seconds and 4
seconds.
■ Video quality
A complex scene generally produces larger file size, meaning that higher bandwidth will be needed
for data transmission. Therefore, if Constant bit rate is selected, the bandwidth utilization is fixed at
a selected level, resulting in mutable video quality performances. The bit rates are selectable at the
following rates: 20Kbps, 30Kbps, 40Kbps, 50Kbps, 64Kbps, 128Kbps, 256Kbps, 512Kbps, 768Kbps,
1Mbps, 2Mbps, 3Mbps and 4Mbps.
On the other hand, if Fixed quality is selected, all frames are transmitted with the same quality;
bandwidth utilization is therefore unpredictable. The video qualities are selectable at the following
settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed and Excellent.
User's Manual - 39
VIVOTEK - A Leading Provider of Multimedia Communication Solutions
If JPEG mode is selected, the Network Camera continuously sends JPEG images to the clients,
producing dynamic effects similar to movies. Every single JPEG image transmitted guarantees the same
image quality, which in turn comes at the expense of variable bandwidth usage. And because the media
contents are a combination of JPEG images, no audio data is transmitted to the clients.
■ Frame size
Select the video size. Note that a larger frame size takes up more bandwidth. The frame sizes are
selectable in the following resolutions: 176 x 144, 320 x 240 and 640 x 480.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximal refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for a smoother video
quality.
If the power line frequency is set to 50Hz, the frame rates are selectable at the following rates: 1fps,
2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps and 25fps. If the power line frequency is set to 60Hz, the
frame rates are selectable at the following rates: 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps,
25fps and 30fps.
■ Video quality
The video qualities are selectable at the following settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed and
Excellent.
Audio settings
Mute: Select this option to disable audio transmission from the Network Camera to all clients. Note
that if mute mode is turned on, no audio data will be transmitted to all clients even though the audio
transmission is enabled in the Client Settings page. In that case, the following message is displayed.
Input gain: There are two options for external microphone input gain, 0db and 20db.
Audio type: Select audio codec AAC or GSM-AMR and the bit rate.
■ AAC targets at performing good sound quality at the cost of higher bandwidth consumption. The bit
rates are selectable at the following rates: 16Kbps, 32Kbps, 48Kbps, 64Kbps, 96Kbps and128Kbps.
■ GSM-ARM is designed to optimize speech quality and requires less bandwidth. The bit rates are
selectable at the following rates: 4.75Kbps, 5.15Kbps, 5.90Kbps, 6.7Kbps, 7.4Kbps, 7.95Kbps,

► How does motion detection work?
A
C
B
D
There are two parameters for setting the motion detection: Sensitivity and Percentage. In the
illustration above, frame A and frame B are two sequential images. Pixel differences between the
two frames are detected and highlighted in gray (frame C), and will be compared with the sensitivity
setting. Sensitivity is a value that expresses the sensitivity to moving objects. Higher sensitivity
settings are expected to sense a slight movement while smaller sensitivity settings tend to neglect
it. When the sensitivity is set to 70%, the Network Camera defines the pixels in the purple areas as
“alerted pixels” (frame D).
Percentage is a value that expresses the proportion of “alerted pixels” to all pixels in the motion
detection window. In this case, 50% of pixels are identified as “alerted pixels”. When the percentage is
set to 30%, the motions are judged to exceed the defined threshold; therefore, the motion window will
be outlined in red.
For applications that require higher security management, it is suggested to set higher sensitivity
settings and smaller percentage values.

Application
This section explains how to configure the Network Camera to react in response to particular
situations. A typical application is that when a motion is detected, the Network Camera sends
buffered images to a FTP server or via e-mail as notifications.
In the illustation on the right side, an event
can be triggered by many sources, such
as motion detection or external digital
input devices. When an event is triggered,
you can specify what kind of action will be
performed. You can configure the Network
Camera to send snapshots or videos to your
email address or FTP site.

Camera. Incorporating a powerful digital signal processor (DSP) dedicated to the video content
analysis, it features three reliable and helpful detections including moving object detection, and
loitering detection, and tampering detection.
The embedded video content analysis, superior to conventional motion detection function,
is capable of distinguishing between creature’s motions and still backgrounds or natural
movements like swaying trees, waves or sunset so as to prevent the false alarms from
environmental noise. In addition, with the tampering detection, it also can detect incidents such
as shooting redirection, blocking or defocusing of cameras, or even spray-painted.

Appendix
URL Commands of the Network Camera
Overview
For some customers who already have their own web site or web control application, Network Camera/
Video server can be easily integrated through convenient URLs. This section specifies the external HTTP
based application programming interface. The HTTP based camera interface provides the functionality
to request a single image, to control camera functions (PTZ, output relay etc.) and to get and set internal
parameter values. The image and CGI-requests are handled by the built in Web server.
Style convention
In URL syntax and in descriptions of CGI parameters, a text within angle brackets denotes a content
that is to be replaced with either a value or a string. When replacing the text string also the angle
brackets shall be replaced. An example of this is the description of the name for the server, denoted with
<servername> in the URL syntax description below, that is replaced with the string myserver in the URL
syntax example, also below.
URL syntax' are written with the “Syntax:" word written in bold face followed by a box with the referred
syntax as seen below. The name of the server is written as <servername>. This is intended to be
replaced with the name of the actual server. This can either be a name, e.g., "mywebcam" or "thecam.
adomain.net" or the associated IP number for the server, e.g., 192.168.0.220.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg
Description of returned data is written with "Return:" in bold face followed by the returned data in a box. All data
returned as HTTP formatted, i.e., starting with the string HTTP is line separated with a Carriage Return and Line
Feed (CRLF) printed as \r\n.
Return:
HTTP/1.0 <HTTP code> <HTTP text>\r\n
URL syntax examples are written with "Example:" in bold face followed by a short description and a light grey box
with the example.
Example: request a single snapshot image
http://mywebserver/cgi-bin/viewer/video.jpg

General CGI URL syntax and parameters
CGI parameters are written in lower-case and as one word without any underscores or other separators.
When the CGI request includes internal camera parameters, the internal parameters must be written
exactly as they are named in the camera or video server. The CGIs are organized in function related
directories under the cgi-bin directory. The file extension of the CGI is required.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/<subdir>[/<subdir>...]/<cgi>.<ext>
[?<parameter>=<value>[&<parameter>=<value>...]]
