Overview
VIVOTEK IP8162/62P are part of the SUPREME series product line offering 1080p HD
resolution with superb image quality. The camera can capture a more comprehensive view than
a standard VGA camera, significantly reducing the number of cameras required. It is especially
suitable for monitoring wide open spaces such as building entrances, airports, or applications
requiring accurate identification.
The IP8162/62P employ many advanced features to allow users to fully enjoy the high definition
video. With high performance H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG compression technology, the camera
offers high-quality video in full HD @ 30fps with a minimum of bandwidth consumption. The
Video Cropping feature allows a user to only transfer user-defined regions for viewing instead of
an entire scene, which can also be used to optimize bandwidth and enhance storage efficiency.
The ePTZ function enables users to zoom in and focus on a region of interest in the camera
view with only a few clicks, providing an additional level of image enhancement.
Additional value-added functions that give users more flexibility and efficiency of use include
WDR Enhancement, which allows users to identify image details in extremely bright and dark
environments. The Focus Assist button can aid an installer to precisely adjust the camera. When
pressing the Focus Assist button on the camera unit, an indicator will be displayed on screen
with detailed focusing information, which will vary in accordance with the manual adjustment.
Moreover, holding down the button will zoom in on the target area for fine tuning, resulting in
better usability and picture clarity. The IP8162P model comes with an advanced P-Iris lens,
which controls the iris opening with extreme precision at an optimal level at all times via the
built-in stepper motor, resulting in superior sharpness and depth of field as well as image quality.
As with all VIVOTEK true day/night cameras, the IP8162/62P feature a removable IR-cut filter,
maintaining clear images 24 hours a day. Together with WDR Enhancement, users can identify
image details in extremely bright as well as dark environments. Also featuring a myriad of other
high-end features such as SD/SDHC card slot, PoE, multiple streams, and the included 32CH recording software, the IP8162/62P is indisputably the top choice for reliable and high
performance megapixel surveillance.

Frame Rate Level: SVC
The camera supports the latest SVC-T (Scalable Video Coding - Temporal) feature. The
SVC feature enables streaming of videos for multiple clients from one single set of layered
IP packets. Designed for saving bandwidth and CPU load on client stations, the frame
rate of a video stream appearing on the live view can be individually adjusted. This feature
applies when an administrator experiences unstable video streaming due to the lack of
network bandwidth, less-than-ideal hardware, or during an occurence of network problems.

H.264 / MPEG-4 Protocol Options
H.264/MPEG-4 Protocol Options
Depending on your network environment, there are four transmission modes of H.264 or 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 63.
TCP: This protocol guarantees the complete delivery of streaming data and thus provides better video
quality. The downside of 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 without needing to open specific ports for
streaming under some network environments. Users inside a firewall can utilize this protocol to allow
streaming data through.

Click the stream item to display the detailed information. The maximum frame size will follow your
settings in the above Viewing Window sections.
This Network Camera offers real-time H.264, MPEG-4 and MJEPG compression standards (Triple
Codec) for real-time viewing. Stream #1 also features the SVC capability for adaptive frame rate
setting. If H.264 / MPEG-4 mode is selected, the video is streamed via RTSP protocol. There are
several parameters for you to adjust the video performance:
■ Frame size
You can set up different video resolution for different viewing devices. For example, set a smaller
frame size and lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones and a larger video size and
a higher bit rate for live viewing on web browsers. Note that a larger frame size takes up more
bandwidth. By default, stream #3 is down-sized to 176x144 for monitoring on hand-held devices.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximum refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for smoother
video quality and for recognizing moving objects in the field of view.
If the power line frequency is set to 50Hz, the frame rates are selectable at 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 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps, 25fps, and 30fps. You can also
select Customize and manually enter a value.
50 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
The frame rate will decrease if you select a higher resolution.
■ Intra frame period
Determine how often to plant an I frame. The shorter the duration, the more likely you will get
better video quality, but at the cost of higher network bandwidth consumption. Select the intra
frame period from the following durations: 1/4 second, 1/2 second, 1 second, 2 seconds, 3
seconds, and 4 seconds.
■ Video quality
Constant bit rate:
• Bit rate restriction: You can select either the Average or Upper bound method as a
limiting factor. The Average method allows the bit rate consumed to fluctuate around
the target bit rate, e.g., slightly higher or lower than 6Mbps. The Average method can
apply when regulating the storage space taken when recording a video feed. The
Upper bound method places a limitation on the maximum bit rate, and can be used
to regulate the network bandwidth taken by a video stream.
• Target bit rate: A complex scene generally produces a larger file size, meaning that
higher bandwidth will be needed for data transmission. The bandwidth utilization
is configurable to match a selected level, resulting in mutable video quality
performance. The bit rates are selectable at the following rates: 20Kbps, 30Kbps,
40Kbps, 50Kbps, 64Kbps, 128Kbps, 256Kbps, 512Kbps, 768Kbps, 1Mbps, 2Mbps,
3Mbps, 4Mbps, 6Mbps, 8Mbps, 10Mbps, 12Mbps, 14Mbps, and 16Mbps. You can
also select Customize and manually enter a value.
• Policy: When bandwidth and storage space become an issue, there will always
be a compromise between image quality and frame rate per second. It is users’
responsibility for an adequate bandwidth planning before they deploy network
cameras. The policy here helps users with the initial network planning.
1. Frame rate priority - The camera will try to deliver a video stream with an optimal
frame rate, e.g., 30fps, while image quality can be compromised. For example,
users may prefer frame rate over quality where dropped frames are not preferred
such as monitoring the consecutive actions in a manufacturing facility.
2. Image quality priority - The camera will try to deliver images in its highest quality
while the number of frames per second can be compromised.
User's Manual - 51
VIVOTEK
Fixed quality:
On the other hand, if Fixed quality is selected, all frames are transmitted with the same quality;
bandwidth utilization is therefore unpredictable. The video quality can be adjusted to the following
settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed, and Excellent. You can also select Customize and
manually enter a value.
The configurable options for SVC stream are identical to those for the H.264 compression
methodology. Note that the SVC feature is only applicable to stream #1. In SVC mode, the Intra
frame period is not configurable. Please refer to page 24 for the introduction of the SVC feature.
If JPEG mode is selected, the Network Camera continuously sends JPEG images to the client,
producing a moving effect similar to a filmstrip. Every single JPEG image transmitted guarantees
the same image quality, which in turn comes at the expense of variable bandwidth usage. Because
the media contents are a combination of JPEG images, no audio data is transmitted to the client.
There are three parameters provided in MJPEG mode to control the video performance:
■ Frame size
You can set up different video resolution for different viewing devices. For example, set a smaller
frame size and lower bit rate for remote viewing on mobile phones and a larger video size and
a higher bit rate for live viewing on web browsers. Note that a larger frame size takes up more
bandwidth.
■ Maximum frame rate
This limits the maximum refresh frame rate per second. Set the frame rate higher for smoother
video quality.
If the power line frequency is set to 50Hz, the frame rates are selectable at 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 1fps, 2fps, 3fps, 5fps, 8fps, 10fps, 15fps, 20fps, 25fps, and 30fps. You can also
select Customize and manually enter a value. The frame rate will decrease if you select a higher
resolution.
■ Video quality
The video quality can be adjusted to the following settings: Medium, Standard, Good, Detailed,
and Excellent. You can also select Customize and manually enter a value.
NOTE:
NOTE
► Video quality and fixed quality refers to the compression rate, so a lower value will produce higher
quality.
► Converting high-quality video may significantly increase the CPU loading, and you may encounter
streaming disconnection or video loss while capturing a complicated scene. In the event of
occurance, we suggest you customize a lower video resolution or reduce the frame rate to obtain
smooth video.

Network > QoS (Quality of Service)
Advanced Mode
Quality of Service refers to a resource reservation control mechanism, which guarantees a certain quality
to different services on the network. Quality of service guarantees are important if the network capacity
is insufficient, especially for real-time streaming multimedia applications. Quality can be defined as, for
instance, a maintained level of bit rate, low latency, no packet dropping, etc.
The following are the main benefits of a QoS-aware network:
■ The ability to prioritize traffic and guarantee a certain level of performance to the data flow.
■ The ability to control the amount of bandwidth each application may use, and thus provide higher
reliability and stability on the network.
Requirements for QoS
To utilize QoS in a network environment, the following requirements must be met:
■ All network switches and routers in the network must include support for QoS.
■ The network video devices used in the network must be QoS-enabled.
QoS models
CoS (the VLAN 802.1p model)
IEEE802.1p defines a QoS model at OSI Layer 2 (Data Link Layer), which is called CoS, Class of
Service. It adds a 3-bit value to the VLAN MAC header, which indicates the frame priority level from 0
(lowest) to 7 (highest). The priority is set up on the network switches, which then use different queuing
disciplines to forward the packets.
Below is the setting column for CoS. Enter the VLAN ID of your switch (0~4095) and choose the priority
for each application (0~7).
If you assign Video the highest level, the switch will handle video packets first.
NOTENOTE:
► The VLAN Switch (802.1p) is required. The web browsing may fail if the CoS setting is incorrect.
► Class of Service technologies do not guarantee a level of service in terms of bandwidth and delivery
time; they offer a "best-effort." Users can think of CoS as "coarsely-grained" traffic control and QoS as
"finely-grained" traffic control.
► Although CoS is simple to manage, it lacks scalability and does not offer end-to-end guarantees since
it is based on L2 protocol.
User's Manual - 69
VIVOTEK
QoS/DSCP (the DiffServ model)
DSCP-ECN defines QoS at Layer 3 (Network Layer). The Differentiated Services (DiffServ) model is
based on packet marking and router queuing disciplines. The marking is done by adding a field to the
IP header, called the DSCP (Differentiated Services Codepoint). This is a 6-bit field that provides 64
different class IDs. It gives an indication of how a given packet is to be forwarded, known as the Per Hop
Behavior (PHB). The PHB describes a particular service level in terms of bandwidth, queueing theory,
and dropping (discarding the packet) decisions. Routers at each network node classify packets according
to their DSCP value and give them a particular forwarding treatment; for example, how much bandwidth
to reserve for it.
Below are the setting options of DSCP (DiffServ Codepoint). Specify the DSCP value for each application
(0~63).

Security > IEEE 802.1X
Advanced Mode
Enable this function if your network environment uses IEEE 802.1x, which is a port-based network
access control. The network devices, intermediary switch/access point/hub, and RADIUS server must
support and enable 802.1x settings.
The 802.1x standard is designed to enhance the security of local area networks, which provides
authentication to network devices (clients) attached to a network port (wired or wireless). If all certificates
between client and server are verified, a point-to-point connection will be enabled; if authentication fails,
access on that port will be prohibited. 802.1x utilizes an existing protocol, the Extensible Authentication
Protocol (EAP), to facilitate communication.
■ The components of a protected network with 802.1x authentication:
Supplicant
(Network Camera)
Authenticator
(Network Switch)
Authentication Server
(RADIUS Server)
1. Supplicant: A client end user (camera), which requests authentication.
2. Authenticator (an access point or a switch): A “go between” which restricts unauthorized end users
from communicating with the authentication server.
3. Authentication server (usually a RADIUS server): Checks the client certificate and decides whether to
accept the end user’s access request.
■ VIVOTEK Network Cameras support two types of EAP methods to perform authentication: EAP-PEAP
and EAP-TLS.
Please follow the steps below to enable 802.1x settings:
1. Before connecting the Network Camera to the protected network with 802.1x, please apply a digital
certificate from a Certificate Authority (ie. MIS of your company) which can be validated by a RADIUS
server.
2. Connect the Network Camera to a PC or notebook outside of the protected LAN. Open the
configuration page of the Network Camera as shown below. Select EAP-PEAP or EAP-TLS as the
EAP method. In the following blanks, enter your ID and password issued by the CA, then upload
related certificate(s).
User's Manual - 81
VIVOTEK
3. When all settings are complete, move the Network Camera to the protected LAN by connecting it to an
802.1x enabled switch. The devices will then start the authentication automatically.
NOTE:
NOTE
► The authentication process for 802.1x:
1. The Certificate Authority (CA) provides the required signed certificates to the Network Camera (the
supplicant) and the RADIUS Server (the authentication server).
2. A Network Camera requests access to the protected LAN using 802.1X via a switch (the authenticator).
The client offers its identity and client certificate, which is then forwarded by the switch to the RADIUS
Server, which uses an algorithm to authenticate the Network Camera and returns an acceptance or
rejection back to the switch.
3. The switch also forwards the RADIUS Server’s certificate to the Network Camera.
4. Assuming all certificates are validated, the switch then changes the Network Camera’s state to
authorized and is allowed access to the protected network via a pre-configured port.

Mechanical PTZ Operation (When camera is mounted on an external pan/tilt scanner)
If you have your camera mounted and connected to an external pan/tilt head via the
RS485 control lines, your can configure the Activated mode as “Mechanical.” You may
then set identical configuration both on your camera and the pan/tilt scanner. Refer to the
terminal block pin definitions on page 6 for RS485 connections.
Select the PTZ camera checkbox to open PTZ-related settings. The most widely used
RS485 protocol is Pelco-D. The camera translates IP-based PTZ commands into RS485
commands and sends them to an external pan/tilt scanner that then converts them to
motor movements. Doing so, the camera can pan or tilt to the desired view area.
As there are many pan/tilt heads or scanners on the market, you should test the
configuration with RS485 control connections when deploying the camera.
VIVOTEK provides five PTZ drivers including, DynaDome/SmartDOME, Lilin PIH-7x00,
Pelco D, Pelco P, and Samsung scc643 protocols. If none of these is supported by your
PTZ scanner, please select Custom camera (scanner). Please refer to the documentation

NOTE
NOTE:
► How does motion detection work?
A
C
B
D
There are two motion detection parameters: 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
detect slight movements while smaller sensitivity settings will neglect them. 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 a high level of security management, it is suggested to use higher
sensitivity settings and smaller percentage values.

IMPORTANT!
Due to the limitations of file system and video recording format, a video recording interrupted by
sabotage or power outage will produce inaccessible video fragments. And the loss of video makes it
difficult to identify who sabotaged the camera and the assets it aims to protect.
This revision of firmware (0101h and above) now supports “Recoverable Recording,” a feature that
enables the usability of video footages taken immediately before (less than 1 second) an interruption.
By inserting meta tags and pointers to videos, videos recorded to the onboard SD card or networked
storage can be viewable even when it is abnormally discontinued. Some video frames will still be lost,
yet it is now possible to retrieve important footages taken before a camera is destroyed or its power
disconnected.
You can select the Recovered checkbox to search for the videos particularly affected by an interruption.

Appendix
URL Commands for the Network Camera
1. Overview
For some customers who already have their own web site or web control application, the Network
Camera/Video Server can be easily integrated through URL syntax. This section specifies the external
HTTP-based application programming interface. The HTTP-based camera interface provides the
functionality to request a single image, control camera functions (PTZ, output relay etc.), and get and set
internal parameter values. The image and CGI-requests are handled by the built-in Web server.
2. Style Convention
In URL syntax and in descriptions of CGI parameters, text within angle brackets denotes content that
is to be replaced with either a value or a string. When replacing the text string, the angle brackets
should also 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 further down in the page.
URL syntax is denoted with the word "Syntax:" written in bold face followed by a box with the referenced
syntax as shown below. For example, name of the server is written as <servername> and 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 is
returned in HTTP format, i.e., each line is 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
116 - User's Manual
VIVOTEK
3. 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, these parameters must be written exactly as they are named in
the camera or video server. The CGIs are organized in functionally-related directories under the cgi-bin directory.
The file extension .cgi is required.
Syntax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/<subdir>[/<subdir>...]/<cgi>.<ext>
[?<parameter>=<value>[&<parameter>=<value>...]]
Example: Set digital output #1 to active

To stop service before changing its port settings. It’s
recommended to set this parameter when change a service
port to the port occupied by another service currently.
Otherwise, the service may fail.
Stopped service will auto-start after changing port settings.
Ex:
Change HTTP port from 80 to 5556, and change RTP port for
video from 5556 to 20480.
Then, set preprocess=9 to stop both service first.
