Chapter 1 Overview

1.1 System Requirement

System requirement of web browser accessing is as follows:

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP1 and above version/Vista/Win7/Server 2003/Server 2008 32bits

CPU: Intel Pentium IV 3.0 GHz or higher RAM: 1G or higher

Display: 1024 × 768 resolution or higher

Web Browser: Internet Explorer 8 to 11, Google Chrome 31 to 44, and Mozilla Firefox 30 to 51

1.2 Functions

The functions vary depending on different camera models.

PTZ Limits

The camera can be programmed to move within the PTZ limits (left/right, up/down).

Presets

A preset is a predefined image position. When the preset is called, the camera will automatically move to the defined position. The presets can be added, modified, deleted and called.

Label Display

The on-screen label of the preset title, azimuth/elevation, zoom, time and camera name can be displayed on the monitor. The displays of time and camera name can be programmed.

Privacy Mask

This function allows you to block or mask certain area of a scene, for preventing the personal privacy from recording or live viewing. A masked area will move with pan and tilt functions and automatically adjust in size as the lens zooms telephoto and wide.

3D Positioning

In the client software, use the left key of mouse to click on the desired position in the video image and drag a rectangle area in the lower right direction, then the camera system will move the position to the center and allow the rectangle area to zoom in. Use the left key of mouse to drag a rectangle area in the upper left direction to move the position to the center and allow the rectangle area to zoom out.

Proportional Pan/Tilt

Proportional pan/tilt automatically reduces or increases the pan and tilt speeds according to the amount of zoom. At telephoto zoom settings, the pan and tilt speeds will be slower than at wide zoom settings. This keeps the image from moving too fast on the live view image when there is a large amount of zoom.

Auto Focus

© Hikvision

User Manual of Network PTZ Camera

2

 

 

The auto focus enables the camera to focus automatically to maintain clear video images.

Day/Night Auto Switch

The cameras deliver color images during the day. And as light diminishes at night, the cameras switch to night mode and deliver black and white images with high quality.

Backlight Compensation (BLC)

If you focus on an object against strong backlight, the object will be too dark to be seen clearly. The BLC (Backlight Compensation) function can compensate light to the object in the front to make it clear, but this causes the over-exposure of the background where the light is strong.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

The wide dynamic range (WDR) function helps the camera provide clear images even under back light circumstances. When there are both very bright and very dark areas simultaneously in the field of view, WDR balances the brightness level of the whole image and provide clear images with details.

White Balance (WB)

White balance can remove the unrealistic color casts. White balance is the white rendition function of the camera to adjust the color temperature according to the environment automatically.

Power Off Memory

The camera supports the power off memory capability with the predefined resume time. It allows the camera to resume its previous position after power is restored.

Park Action

This feature allows the camera to start a predefined action automatically after a period of inactivity.

User Management

The camera allows you to edit users with different levels of permission, in the admin login status. Multiple users are allowed to access and control the same network camera via network simultaneously.

3D Digital Noise Reduction

Comparing with the general 2D digital noise reduction, the 3D digital noise reduction function processes the noise between two frames besides processing the noise in one frame. The noise will be much less and the video will be clearer.

2.2 Setting the Network Camera over the WAN

Purpose:

This section explains how to connect the network camera to the WAN with a static IP or a dynamic IP.

2.2.1 Static IP Connection

Before you start:

Apply a static IP from an ISP (Internet Service Provider). With the static IP address, you can connect the network camera via a router or connect it to the WAN directly.

Connecting the network camera via a router

Steps:

1.Connect the network camera to the router.

2.Assign a LAN IP address, the subnet mask and the gateway. Refer to Section 2.1.2 for detailed IP address configuration of the camera.

3.Save the static IP in the router.

4.Set port mapping, E.g., 80, 8000 and 554 ports. The steps for port mapping vary depending on different routers. Call the router manufacturer for assistance with port mapping.

5.Visit the network camera through a web browser or the client software over the internet.

2.2.2 Dynamic IP Connection

Before you start:

Apply a dynamic IP from an ISP. With the dynamic IP address, you can connect the network camera to a modem or a router.

Connecting the network camera via a router

Steps:

1.Connect the network camera to the router.

2.In the camera, assign a LAN IP address, the subnet mask and the gateway. Refer to Section 2.1.2 for detailed LAN configuration.

3.In the router, set the PPPoE user name, password and confirm the password.

For your privacy and to better protect your system against security risks, we strongly recommend the use of strong passwords for all functions and network devices. The password should be something of your own choosing (using a minimum of 8 characters, including upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers and special characters) in order to increase the security of your product.

Proper configuration of all passwords and other security settings is the responsibility of the installer and/or end-user.

4.Set port mapping. E.g. 80, 8000 and 554 ports. The steps for port mapping vary depending on different routers. Call the router manufacturer for assistance with port mapping.

5.Apply a domain name from a domain name provider.

6.Configure the DDNS settings in the setting interface of the router.

7.Visit the camera via the applied domain name.

Connecting the network camera via a modem

Purpose:

This camera supports the PPPoE auto dial-up function. The camera gets a public IP address by ADSL dial-up after the camera is connected to a modem. You need to configure the PPPoE parameters of the network camera. Refer to Section 6.1.1 Configuring PPPoE Settings for detailed configuration.

The obtained IP address is dynamically assigned via PPPoE, so the IP address always changes after rebooting the camera. To solve the inconvenience of the dynamic IP, you need to get a domain name from the DDNS provider (E.g. DynDns.com). Follow the steps below for normal domain name resolution and private domain name resolution to solve the problem.

Normal Domain Name Resolution

Steps:

1.Apply a domain name from a domain name provider.

2.Configure the DDNS settings in the DDNS Settings interface of the network camera. Refer to
