Introduction

Thank you for choosing the Cisco Small Business Internet Video Camera with

Audio. This administration guide covers two models.

PVC2300 Business Internet Video Camera with Audio and PoE (Power over Ethernet)

WVC2300 Wireless-GBusiness Internet Video Camera with Audio

For the purpose of this administration guide, whenever a feature applies to both models, the word camera(s) will be referenced. If a specific model number is mentioned, then the feature is specific to that model

The Cisco camera surveillance solutions are high quality solutions which can be optimized for many different applications. The box-typeform factor allows these cameras to be usedas-isor put inside an outdoor enclosure for interior or exterior applications. The cameras use removableCS-mountlenses and can be customized with Zoom,Wide-Angled,Vari-focal,Auto-Iris(DC type), or other type of lenses as required for the specific application.

The PVC2300 provides Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality that facilitates installation of the PVC2300 in places out of reach of a power outlet.

The cameras can be remotely controlled through an RS-485interface and mounted on any PT (pan/tilt) base that supportsPelco-Dprotocol. The camera supports 2 input and 2 output connectors which can be used for connecting to an alarm panel, siren, PIR, smoke detectors, light switch (on/off), door opener, etc.

The cameras incorporate a high quality progressive scan CCD sensor, delivering good quality undistorted video. The sensor used in the cameras has low light sensitivity capability. This means that video can be viewed when very low light (near darkness) is present. Additionally, the cameras incorporate an IR Cut Filter switcher which, when used with a separate IR lamp, allows for viewing of video in total darkness.

Introduction

Minimum Requirements

 

 

 

 

 

The cameras support dual CODECs—MPEG-4and MJPEG. Both CODECs can be used simultaneously.MPEG-4gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good quality compression and is optimal forreal-timeviewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality in lossy environments making it ideal for video storage to a NAS device. Lossy compression is very effective in reducing digital file sizes, resulting in smaller video file sizes with minor data loss.

The camera’s audio capabilities include 2-wayaudio, an embedded microphone, external speaker and microphone ports, and voice compression.

With extensive feature support such as IP Multicast, RTSP, RTP, and 3GPP, video can be viewed from multiple endpoints and client applications like 3G phones and Quicktime clients on PCs or Wi-Fiphones.

Support for multiple network protocols like 802.1p priority, 802.1q VLANs, and Dynamic DNS, make the solution ideal for multiple IP surveillance applications. The cameras can also be managed securely using HTTPS.

NOTE Before installing a surveillance system, check with local government agencies to determine if video surveillance and audio monitoring are permitted in your area.
