IPC TOOL
Configurator User Guide 8 Setting Basic Parameters

Package Name Application Scenario

Balanced The balanced package reduces the number


of data streams for transmission and ensures
image quality.
This package conserves the bandwidth and
applies to most surveillance scenarios (at
least 6 Mbit/s bandwidth for each IPC).

Low bandwidth The low-bandwidth package reduces the


number of data streams for transmission and
ensures that the image quality is acceptable.
This package conserves the bandwidth and
applies to surveillance scenarios with
insufficient bandwidth (approximately 3
Mbit/s bandwidth for each IPC).

Mobile devices The mobile-service package reduces the


number of data streams for encoding by
lowering the image resolution and frame
rate.
This package applies to mobile surveillance
scenarios, because mobile devices have
small screens, low bandwidth, and weak
decoding capabilities.

10 Setting Network Parameters

About This Chapter

You can set network parameters for cameras, including basic network, IP filter, bit rate stream
smoothing, bandwidth adaptive, 802.1X, and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
parameters. This topic uses the IPC6284-VRZ as an example to describe how to set network
parameters for cameras.

NOTE
Camera parameters vary depending on the camera model.

10.1 Setting Basic Network Parameters


You can set basic network parameters, including the maximum transmission unit (MTU) size
and quality of service (QoS) of media/signaling streams, for cameras.
10.2 Setting IP Filter Parameters
You can use a blacklist or whitelist to deny or allow the access of specified IP addresses to a
camera.
10.3 Setting Stream Smooth Parameters
In case of too high instantaneous streams due to a too large I-frame, you can set stream
smoothness parameters to reduce the I-frame to suppress the too high instantaneous streams.
10.4 Setting Traffic Shaping Parameters
You can set the rate for sending data to ensure stable network bandwidth occupation and
enhance stability and reliability of video stream transmission.
10.5 Setting Bandwidth Adaptive Parameters
With the bandwidth adaptive function enabled, the IPC will use an appropriate bit rate that
best suits the current network conditions to transfer video images. This approach ensures the
image quality.
10.6 Setting 802.1X Parameters
If the switch in the network has been configured with 802.1X parameters, the 802.1X
parameters also need to be configured on the IPC. Otherwise, you may not log in to the IPC.

Parameter Description

Intelligent encoding Using Intelligent encoding, camera can


automatically adapt the scenario, with
decreasing the bit rate, storage space can
be saved.
The higher the level is, bit rate will be
decreased more heavily, whereas, it could
also decrease the quality of image.

Coding protocol Set the coding protocol based on the site


requirements.
The options are as follows:
– H.265: The H.265 format has a higher
data compression rate and requires
lower bandwidth.
– H.264: The H.264 format has a high
data compression rate and a low
bandwidth usage. The H.264 format is
one of the mainstream encoding
formats.
– MJPEG: The MJPEG protocol
decodes and displays each frame
independently without referring to the
previous and next frames. This
protocol has a small compression ratio
and requires large bandwidth to ensure
the video quality. This protocol is
suitable for video editing.

Encoding complexity This parameter is available only when


you set Coding protocol to H.264 or H.
265.
Indicates the image quality level.
The options are as follows:
– BP: short for Base Profile, which
indicates the basic image quality.
– MP: short for Main Profile, which
indicates the mainstream image
quality.
– HP: short for High Profile, which
indicates the superb image quality.
The image quality standards are listed in
ascending order of quality from BP to
HP. A higher image quality requires a
higher encoder performance.

Parameter Description

Bit rate type This parameter is available only when


you set Coding protocol to H.264 or H.
265.
The bit rate is the number of data bits
transmitted in a unit of time.
The options are as follows:
– Constant bit rate: The constant bit
rate remains the same. The upper limit
of the instantaneous bit rate is set to
110%. If the bit rate is incorrectly
configured for images with great
dynamic changes, the images will be
unclear.
– Variable bit rate: The bit rate varies
depending on the image complexity to
ensure the definition of images with
great dynamic changes. The bit rate is
low if the image is simple or static.
The variable bit rate is recommended.

Bit rate This parameter is available only when


you set Bit rate type to Constant bit
rate.
Increasing the bit rate value improves the
video quality but consumes more
bandwidth.
NOTE
– To ensure the video quality, you must set a
proper bit rate value based on the site
requirements.
– To ensure video smoothness, the actual
bandwidth is greater than the bit rate
value. When the bit rate is low, the
required bandwidth is generally 1.2 times
of the bit rate.
