Getting Started

BEFORE YOU BEGIN!

Read Using theDVC-1000with Routers, Gateways or Broadband Modemson page 33 in this manual if you are using the DVC-1000 VideoPhone with a Router, Gateway or Broadband Modem.

The DVC-1000needs to beset-upbefore use. Use theQuick Installation Guide (included with theDVC-1000)to perform the hardware installation. Each cable (video, audio, Ethernet and AC power) supplied for thei2eye

TM

has a different color on the end that connects to the DVC-1000.Plug the cables into the matching color coded connector on the back ofDVC-1000.You can also plug the optional telephone and/or external microphone into theDVC-1000.To help you with these connections, there is an illustration on the bottom of the unit.

There is an easy to use Setup Wizard built-into theDVC-1000to accomplish theset-up.You will need to enter your name, your phone number and your Internet connection information in order to use your VideoPhone.

Using the Remote Control

Information for the Setup Wizard is entered by using the intelligent remote control included with the DVC-1000.The remote is used to enter numbers, letters, special characters and to make selections from anon-screenkeyboard. Theon-screenkeyboard is activated by pressing ENTER on the remote control. Theon-screenkeyboard is only activated in a field where text is required.

You will use the arrow keys on the remote control along with the ENTER, CANCEL and number keys to enter information in the Setup Wizard screens.

Where a numeric input is required, such as a telephone number or IP address, enter it directly by pressing the number keys. The * (asterisk--sometimescalled a “star” key) is used to enter a “.” (period also called a “dot”.)

When you are entering alphanumeric information, the left arrow key performs a backspace, deleting the character to the left of the cursor. The following page contains a breakdown of the features of the remote control.

Using the On-ScreenKeyboard

The DVC-1000uses a keyboard that appearson-screento enter words or alphanumeric characters into the Setup Wizard screens. When the cursor is located in a setup screen that requires characters to be entered, press the ENTER key to bring up theon-screenkeyboard.

The keyboard will only appear if the cursor is located in an area of the screen that allows text or numbers to be entered.

To enter text use the arrow keys on the remote control to move the cursor to the required character. Press the ENTER key on the remote control to actually put the character on the screen. Continue entering characters until you have “typed” the characters that are needed.

When you are finished entering text and numbers, move the cursor to highlight OK on the screen and pressENTER; or alternatively you can press theCANCEL key on the remote to remove the keyboard from the screen, leaving what you typed on the screen.

The keyboard allows entering any of the following:

Numbers 0 through 9

Upper case Letters A through Z

Lower case letters a through z

Special characters: period (.), dash(-),colon (:), at sign (@), space, backspace (to delete a character to the left), comma

(,), and a slash (/).

When you are entering letters, the first letter entered is automatically entered as UPPER case. The bottom left “arrow” on the screen is a Shift key. This

allows you to change from UPPER to lower case. The keypad features

 

“wraparound” capability. Pressing continuously on the “right” arrow will

 

navigate you through all the rows of the alphabet.

Using the Setup Wizard

The following descriptions of the Setup Wizard screens will help you understand the purpose and procedures for providing the required information.

Welcome Screen

The first screen that displays on the initial startup is the Wecome Screen. This screen explains what information is needed to complete the setup and also explains how to use the remote control to navigate through the

Setup Wizard. Press ENTERon the remote control to continue to the next screen.

Personal Information Screen

This is where you enter your name, area code and phone number. The bottom of the screen has instructions on using the on-screenkeyboard.

After the information is entered highlight the NEXT button and pressENTER on the remote control to continue.

The phone number you enter is one you create for family, friends and others to call you. You can use your regular phone number or make up a new one. Only your name will be displayed at the other end of the video call. Your phone number will not be visible to anyone else.

10

Using the Setup Wizard (continued)

Network Address Screen

The Network Addressscreen asks for information that is needed to connect a VideoPhone call over the Internet. Most home users with a cable or DSL modem can leave the checkbox checked to obtain an IP Address automatically.

If you know you cannot be assigned an IP Address

automatically through a DHCP server, then uncheck the checkbox and enter your IP Address,Subnet mask andGateway.

Obtain an IP Address automatically (Default)

The application will attempt to obtain the IP Address from the DHCP server. When this is checked, the other settings on this screen are automatically grayed. Also, if this setting is checked, you will skip the DNS screen, described on the next page, as the DNS will be set automatically.

IP Address, Subnet mask, Gateway

If necessary, enter each of these settings for the DVC-1000.You will be able to obtain the IP Address, subnet mask and gateway address from your router configuration settings, ISP or network administrator.

Host name (optional):

Your Internet Service provider may require you to provide a host name to connect to the Internet. If this is required you can enter it here. Today, this is rarely required on a broadband connection and this setting is optional.

Press OK to continue.

11

Using the Setup Wizard (continued)

DNS (Domain Naming System) Screen

If you entered an IP address in the Network Address screen (described on the previous page) you will see the screen for setting DNS server addresses. The DNS screen asks for information regarding the Domain Name System (DNS) server.

You should be able to get

both of these settings from

your router configuration settings, ISP or your network administrator. Only the primary DNS server address is required, though it is best to have both the primary and secondary addresses.

Press OK to continue.

The Domain Name System (DNS) translates Internet domain names (for example www.dlink.com, which is easy for humans to use and remember) to IP Addresses, which are what computers use to find each other on the Internet.

Network Speed Screen

The Network Speedscreen asks you to select the type of broadband Internet connection you use. Each choice has default send and receive speeds defined for you. If you need to change these settings after completing the

Setup Wizard, this can be done by selecting theSettings >Network >Speed screen.

Press Next to continue.

12

Using the Setup Wizard (continued)

System Restart

A warning message now appears asking to restart the DVC-1000VideoPhone to complete the setup. Press theYes button to accomplish a restart.

Congratulations! You are now ready to make and receive i2eye VideoPhone calls.

Using a Telephone with the DVC-1000

Although optional, it is recommended that you connect a standard telephone to the DVC-1000VideoPhone.

The telephone that you use for the DVC-1000VideoPhone will not be connected to your phone jack. You will use the telephone as a means of conducting and receiving calls over the Internet only.

The telephone handset is used to place video calls just as you would with a regular phone call. You dial a VideoPhone number to reach a party on the other end of the VideoPhone call. You can speak through the telephone, listen to the other party in privacy, and even switch to the Speakerphone Mode on theDVC-1000to share the audio with others. This can all be controlled by the remote control. When the phone is picked up, the microphone is muted.

If the VideoPhone number you are calling has a different area code, you will need to dial a “1”, the 3-digitarea code and the7-digitnumber. TheDVC-1000requires using a “1” in calls outside your area code to correctly look up the phone number.

If you are calling within the same area code, you will only dial the 7-digitnumber.

Using the DVC-1000(continued)

Speakerphone Mode

The DVC-1000has aSpeakerphone Mode if the call needs to be shared with more than one person, or when it is desirable to talk without using the telephone handset. In Speakerphone Mode, the speaker on the television and the microphone in theDVC-1000VideoPhone are used.

When a call is answered using the remote control, or a call is placed using the remote control, the DVC-1000VideoPhone is automatically in Speakerphone Mode.

Speakerphone mode is a half-duplexaudio mode , which means that only one end of the call may talk at a time. If you are talking, you will not hear the person on the other end. Becausehalf-duplexallows only one side to talk at a time, if you are in a loud environment, you will have difficulty hearing the other side because the loud side stays active, and audio may not come through from the other side.

Making a Speakerphone Call into a Private Call

If you are sharing a VideoPhone call with a group using the Speakerphone Mode and wish to conduct a private conversation, pick up the telephone handset and turn down the audio on the televison. The others in the group will not be able to hear the conversation.

Making a Private Call into a Speakerphone Call

If a VideoPhone call is in progress using the telephone handset, Speakerphone mode can be enabled:

Press the Speakerphone button on theDVC-1000remote control.

When the dialog appears on the video display telling you to hang up the phone, go ahead and hang up the phone.

Speakerphone mode is now active.

When in Speakerphone mode, you should face the DVC-1000VideoPhone unit when you speak so the microphone will pick up all your words. Speak louder as you move further from the microphone. The recommended distance from the microphone in speakerphone mode is 6 to 8 feet.

If Speakerphone mode is not enabled by pressing the

 

‘Speakerphone’ button on the remote control, hanging up the

 

handset will hang up the video call.

Opening Ports on Your Routers and Gateways

The firewall security features built into most routers and gateways prevent users from accessing the video and audio of their DVC-1000.

A router connects to the Internet through a series of numbered ports. The ports used by the DVC-1000are blocked from access over the Internet by the firewall features of the router.

You need to open the ports on your router to the Internet to allow access to the DVC-1000.

The router or gateway that you are using may be different from the example shown on the following pages. However, the general procedure for opening ports will be similar. (If you do not have a D-Linkrouter, look forVirtual Server,Firewall Rules,Port Forwarding, Advanced or Firewall in your router’s configuration utility.)

In the example that follows we begin by opening the Web configuration utility and going to Advanced > Virtual Server.

Follow the steps on the next 2 pages to open the ports on your router for successful operation of the DVC-1000.

Using the DVC-1000with Routers, Gateways, or Broadband Modems

(continued)From the following sections, choose the heading that best applies to your equipment or networking configuration.

Network With Multiple Public IP Addresses

A Public IP Address is visible on the Internet. (Most commonly found in business environments.)

Recommended Procedure: If there is an available public IP address, simply enter the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway into the applicable fields under the network settings page. If the network has a DHCP server, select the checkbox under the network settings that says, “Automatically obtain IP address.” (The network administrator will be able to tell you whether or not the network has a DHCP server.)

Potential Issues: Some firewalls are configured in a way that could potentially restrict H.323 data flow. Most current corporate firewalls are H.323 compliant. If this is the case, configuring the firewall is accomplished by simply opening the necessary H.323 ports into the network:

Port 1720 (TCP)

Ports 15328 – 15333 (UDP & TCP)

If your particular firewall does not have this option, consult the firewall’s documentation on how to open specific ports needed for H.323 communications.

Broadband Modem and One PC

(This is the most common scenario found in a home or home office that currently has one PC connected to its broadband modem.)

Recommended Procedure: Request from your ISP an additional public IP address. With a second public IP address, the Video Phone will be visible to the outside world just as the existing PC. The ISP can either assign a static IP address or allow you to dynamically request the IP address via DHCP. Follow the instructions in Broadband Modem Only section, below, depending on what your ISP requires.

Because most broadband modems have only one Ethernet port, it will be necessary to install a hub or switch between the modem and the rest of the network. Using an Ethernet cable, connect the modem’s Ethernet port to the applicable WAN port on the hub. Once that is done, you can plug the PC and

DVC-1000Video Phone into any other available port.

37

 

Using the DVC-1000with Routers, Gateways, or Broadband Modems (continued)

Broadband Modem, Multiple PCs and a Hub

Commonly found in small offices, home offices, or homes with more than one PC where multiple public IP addresses are available.

In order to install the DVC-1000Video Phone as another device behind a hub assign an available public IP address to the Video Phone.

Refer to the Broadband Modem Only section, below, for detailed installation instructions.

Broadband Modem, Multiple PCs and a Router

Commonly found in small offices, home offices, or homes with more than one PC where only one public IP address is available.

Refer to the Using a Router/Home gateway on the previous page for detailed installation instructions.

Broadband Modem Only

This section applies only in the instance that the broadband connection is used exclusively with the DVC-1000Video phone and there are no PCs or other devices connected to the broadband modem.)

Recommended Procedure: Many ISPs act as DHCP servers and dynamically assign a public IP address whenever the modem requests one. If your ISP has a DHCP server, select the checkbox under the network settings that says, “Automatically obtain IP address.” By choosing this option, you are not required to know the IP address, gateway, subnet mask, or DNS numbers. They will all be filled in automatically.

If DHCP is not an option, all of the networking values will have to be manually entered. Simply enter the public IP address, subnet Mask, gateway, and DNS numbers given to you by the ISP into the appropriate network settings fields.

Potential Issues: In order for theDVC-1000Video Phone to function properly over the Internet, there must exist a public IP address for the world to see. If your ISP is acting as a NAT and assigning private IP addresses, you will have to request a public IP address in order for your Video Phone to be able to receive calls.

Frequently Asked Questions

1What is D-Link´si2eye?

i2eye (TM) is a breakthrough communications video appliance that provides IP videoconferencing and connects to any standard television. Simple to install and use, the small unit sits on top of the television and contains a video camera that can stream up to 30 frames per second over the Internet to friends, family and business associates.

2When connecting my DVC-1000behind a router or firewall, what ports do I need to open?

The VideoPhone needs ports 1720 (TCP) and ports 15328-15333(TCP and UDP) open to function properly. Consult your router’s documentation or your network administrator for help on doing this. Check theD-LinkTech Support website for more information regarding specific ports to open on yourD-Linkrouters.

3I’ve seen videophones that connect using the phone line, and the picture is always small and choppy. How is i2eye different?

i2eye connects over high-speedbroadband, and it delivers up to 30 frames per second. Videophones using a slow analogplain old telephone line can’t deliver smooth video pictures over their small LCD display. They show what appears to be a series of still pictures rather than full motion video

4What is the D-LinkLDAP Directory Service?

The D-LinkLDAP Directory Service is aD-Linkhosted server which will allow you to register a “phone number” with yourDVC-1000VideoPhone. When someone with aDVC-1000dials this “phone number”, yourDVC-1000will ring and you will be able to accept a call. In the same manner you can call others by dialing their “phone number”. This allows you to contact anotherDVC-1000without knowing it´s IP address. AllDVC-1000which are connected to a broadband modem will have the capability of using theD-LinkLDAP Directory Service.

5Can I use the DVC-1000with a computer and monitor instead of a TV?

Yes. The DVC-1000can be used with a computer and monitor instead of a TV. However, you will need a TV Tuner / Video Capture device or a video card that accepts video input from an RCA jack.

47

Frequently Asked Question (continued)

6How large will the image be?

As large as the TV screen. i2eye supports three screen formats. The first is apicture-in-picturemode that has the incoming video covering about half the television screen and the outbound video in a smaller window. The second is full screen mode. This mode displays the incoming video across the entire television screen. The third is connection status mode. This mode displays thepicture-in-picturemode and gives you an idea of the upload and download speed.

7Can I use the DVC-1000with anon-D-Linkdirectory service?

No. The DVC-1000is designed to automatically connect to theD-LinkDirectory Service. This is a free service and is available to anyone with aDVC-1000.The Directory Service allows for calling anotherDVC-1000Videophone by using a phone number instead of using an IP Address.

8Do I need a PC to use i2eye?

i2eye is a complete standalone system that handles all the communications, so you don’t need a PC. Just connect it to the TV and broadband connection and go. You can also use it with any PC with video input capabilities.

9Can I connect i2eye without wires?

Yes, there is an optional DWL-810+device that allows you to configure your complete system without wires (note: you need a wireless router or access point). TheDWL-810+bridges from i2eye’s wired Ethernet connection to the AirPlus wireless router or access point that is connected to the cable or DSL modem.

10How easy is i2eye to setup?

Very easy. When users first turn on i2eye they will be walked through a Set-upWizard that is designed to get the videophone up and working quickly. The wizard asks for the information needed to connect to a broadband Internet connection. Once the information is sent, i2eye will connect to theD-Linki2eye server. The server will assign a10-digit

“Internet telephone number” to the device. It will not be necessary to

work with cumbersome IP addresses when you want to communicate

using the i2eye.

48

Frequently Asked Question (continued)

11What devices can I connect to with the DVC-1000?

If you are not sure if your hardware or software is H.323 compatible, please contact the manufacturer/developer. If you are using a PC with a Windows operating system, you can use NetMeeting with any webcam to connect to theDVC-1000.NetMeeting is a common H.323 compatible software application.

*Note: The DVC-1000does not support SIP.

12What standards drive i2eye?

i2eye is based on the H.323 industry standard video streaming over IP protocol. This ensures that any H.323 compliant device will communicate together seamlessly. i2eye is a broadband appliance that draws from D-Link’ssixteen years of experience as a leading Ethernet manufacturer.

13Do I have to take every call?

i2eye’s configuration menu provides settings for three types of privacy:

Audio Privacy, Video Privacy,and Do Not Disturb, so you are in control.

When the Audio Privacy is activated, incoming callers will be able to see video from your end, but not hear you. When the Video Privacy is activated, incoming callers will be able to hear audio from your end, but not see you. And when Do Not Disturb is activated, incoming callers will receive a message indicating that you are not available.

Glossary of Terms

Bandwidth: A measure of the rate at which data can be sent through the network. This value is usually given in bits per second (bps) or kilobits per second (kbps).

CIF (Common Intermediate Format): An intermediate video format. WhenD-LinkDVC-1000video is transmitted over a network, the sizes will be CIF, QCIF, or SQCIF. The VideoPhone will default to CIF. CIF resolution is 352 x 288.

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol): A protocol that network devices use to obtain an IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS addresses automatically. A DHCP server can be a router, ISP server, or PC running Internet connection sharing. See Static IP address.

Directory Service: A service that allows users to make video conferencing calls with telephone numbers. It does this by correlating telephone numbers to actual public IP addresses.

DNS (Domain Name System): A system used to translate computer names into IP addresses. For example, a DNS server would translatewww. dlink.com into 192.152.81.1

DSL (Digital Subscribers Line): A technology that delivers digital information at a high speed through a user’s telephone line. The most common DSL is ADSL (Asymmetrical Digital Subscribers Line) where the download speed is usually much higher than the upload speed.

Ethernet: The port on the back of theDVC-1000VideoPhone that is used to send and receive data over a network.

Far side: The remote connection of the videoconference. Your connection is the Local Connection.

Firewall: A security mechanism placed between networks, which restricts certain types of data to devices behind the firewall.

H.323: Standard defining videoconferencing over the Internet.

50

Glossary of Terms (continued)

Home Gateway: A term commonly interchanged with router.

IP Address (Internet Protocol Address): An IP Address is a number that identifies a computer connected to the Internet. Every computer that is connected to the Internet must have a unique IP Address. An IP Address consists of four sections separated by periods. Each section contains an 8-bit value represented as a number ranging from 0 to 255.

Public IP Address: An IP Address that is not behind a NAT. This IP Address is visible from the Internet.

Private IP Address: An IP Address that is behind a NAT, which is not visible to the Internet. The preferred ranges for private IP Address are either 192.168.x.x or 10.0.0.x.

Dynamic IP Address: An IP Address for a particular network device (PC, VideoPhone, router) that is dynamically assigned by a router or ISP and will not remain the same from session to session. See DHCP.

Static IP Address: An IP Address for a particular network device (PC, VideoPhone, router) that doesn’t change. See DHCP.

ISP (Internet Service Provider): A commercial organization that provides subscribers with access to the Internet.

LAN (Local Area Network): A network that is designed to span small distances. These are most commonly used in small buildings, businesses and homes with multiple PCs. See WAN.

NAT (Network Address Translation): A technology that allows multiple network devices to share the same IP Address. NAT devices forward all incoming and outgoing information to the correct network devices. Most NAT devices have firewall capabilities.

QCIF (Quarter Common Intermediate Format): An intermediate video format. QCIF resolution is 176x144. The DVC-1000 VideoPhone will send QCIF-sized video only if the remote endpoint cannot decode

CIF.

51

Glossary of Terms (continued)

QoS (Quality of Service): Allows guaranteed bandwidth and packet delivery betweennetwork devices over a network.

Router: A device that attaches two or more network devices and forwards data accordingly. Most consumer type routers act as DHCP servers, NATs and simple firewalls.

DMZ (Demilitarized Zone): Devices set up to be in the router’s DMZ will see all network traffic.

Port Forwarding: The router will forwardpublic-sideincoming information to a specified device on the private side. The router will forward only the data that is received on the specified ports. This is usually set through the advanced settings in the router’s web interface. Also known asVirtual Server orFirewall Rules.

Ports: A port is a specified path in which data travels. Each type of data that is transmitted over the Internet travels down a specified port. A router will forward information from one port to another, and a firewall will open only a specified number of ports.

SQCIF (Subquarter Common Intermediate Format): An intermediate video format. SQCIF resolution is 128x96. The DVC-1000 VideoPhone will send SQCIF-sized video only if the remote endpoint cannot decode CIF or QCIF.

SLIC (Subscriber-LineInterface Circuit):Provides a phone’s analog dial tone, busy tone, dual-tone multiple-frequency (DTMF) generation and decoding, caller ID and ring-signaling functions. The SLIC allows the DVC-1000 to work with a standard telephone without connecting to the phone system.

TCP (Transmission Control Protocol): An Internet protocol used by the DVC-1000 VideoPhone in addition to UDP.

UDP (User Datagram Protocol): The Internet protocol most commonly used by theDVC-1000VideoPhone to send and receive audio and video data.
