With this selection, the video images are displayed.
Settings for the displayed video can be found under Settings -> Camera.
With Back, you return to the main menu.

Remote Control

See the status and configure the I/O ports

The CP-CAM can, in conjunction with an IO interface, provide two opto-coupler inputs or two relay outputs.
A door opener or light can for example be switched vie the web interface using the outputs.
I/O Port 1 - Shows the status of the first I/O input
I/O Port 2 - Shows the status of the second I/O input
I/O Control
I/O Port 1 - The switching state of the first output can be set here
I/O Port 2 - The switching state of the second output can be set here
Off - Output alway off
On - Output is permanently switched on
Timed Switched On - Here, the output can be set for a given time period
Reboot System - Restarts the CP-CAM
Send Settings - Sends the settings to the camera to be effective

Manual/DHCP - Specifies whether the network settings are to be manually or automatically assigned
IP Address - IP address at which the CP-CAM can be reached on the network
Netmask - The netmask is entered here
Gateway - Gateway is entered here
DNS - DNS server is specified here

Ethernet Mode - Standard settings should always be set to Auto. The other settings are only for network professional in the event of problems with the automatic
MAC Address - MAC address of the camere


Note! The following port numbers must all have different values, as this can cause malfunction

Tools - Port for support programs
UDP-Autoomatic Cam Detection - UDP port for automatic detection of camera in the network using special software
UDP-Status Messages - UDP port for status messages


Authentication required for picture/video - Specifies whether the user requires a password for the video and picture display
Automatic Cam Detection - Must be turned on to automatically detect several cameras over the network. Must be turned off after system installation, particularly in network where many broadcasts are sent
UDP Status Messages - Settings for status messages
Off - Camera sends no status messages
Message after mode change - A message is sent after each mode change. (I/O, camera driver and LED mode)
Cyclical message - An additional message is sent after a time interval - even if there has been no mode change
Destination IP for UDP Status - Destination address of status messages

Camera Setup

Configuration Presets

Configuration Presets - Here you can select on of several configuration sets of camera settings.

Warning! All other changes will be lost. Therefore, you should first change the default settings and then the other!

Mode - Sets the camera resolution

Frames per Second (Sensor)

Number of frames per second - Defines the number of pictures per second which the video sensor captures. With VGA max 15 (20 at quality 40), by QVGA/QQVGA max 25

Shown Frames (Video)

Shown Frames - Specifies how many of the captured pictures are transmitted as video. Only every X-th picture is sent


Zoom - Setting of the picture enlargement

Zooming is only possible with a resolution smaller than VGA (640x480).
The zoom factor can only be as large as the factor which reduced the picture.
So with QQVGA max 4.0x.
A value to large is automatically reset to 1.0x.
(ResolutionX * Zoom)<640
(ResolutionX * Zoom)<480

Displacement on X-Axis/Y-Axis - It is possible to adjust a picture (only at resolutions < VGA). To view a certain section of the picture, move the section in the X and Y direction so far until the desired picture is visible. Incorrect values are corrected automatically!

Example: At a resolution of 320x240 and 2x zoom, the center of the picture should be displayed. Th epicture must be adjusted 160 pixels in the X direction and 120 pixels in the Y direction!
Quality (JPEG compression

Quality (JPEG compression) - A lower quality should be chosen in case the network bandwidth is not sufficient (too many users)

IR Lighting/Nightvision

IR Lighting Setup

IR Lighting Setup - Selection of IR lighting mode
Always off - IR lighting permanently off
Always on - IR lighting permanently on
Automatic - The camera measures the brightness and, if necessary, turns on the light automatically
Controlled by I/O - IR lighting is controlled with the 2 I/O ports

Options - IR Automatic Mode

Options-IR Automaitc Mode - Specifies that the IR lighting can be overridden with the two I/O ports despite automatic mode
Override by I/O's disabled - No response when I/O ports are switched
Override Option 1 - If the I/O port is ON, the IR lighting is switched on by force
Override Option 2 - If the I/O port is on, the IR lighting is switched on by force

Options - IR Controlled by I/O's

Options-IR Controlled by I/O's - Determines whether the IR control via the I/O ports are to be normal or inverted

IR mode treshold (Shutter val)/Hysteresis

IR mode threshold (Shutter) - Determination of the switching threshold (shutter - light intesity)
Hysteresis - Hysteresis for switching threshold. Switching threshold ON = switching threshold + hysteresis. Switching threshold OFF = switching threshold - hysteresis
Switch On Delay - Waiting time after exceeding the threshold on until switching occurs
Switch Off Delay - Waiting time after falling below the threshold off until switching occurs

B/W in IR/Nightvision mode

B/W in IR/Nightvision mode - Indicates whether the night vision should be switched to black/white mode


Picture Rotation

Picture Rotation in Video Applet - The CP-CAM is capable of rotating the displayed picture in 90° increments, the installation position of the CP-CAM can therefore be selected. The rotation is only for the viewing in the web interface. The pictures and the motion JGPEG stream, which can be accessed over http://<camera-IP>/jpg and http://<camera-IP>/mjpg/video.mjpg respectively, are always in original position. Th eclient software resumes the picture rotation

Single pictures can only be rotated when the web browser supports Flash and has it installed.

Sensor Driver State - Status mode of the camera driver. Should always be on RUN, otherwise the camera must be restarted
IR Lighting State - Shows whether the infrared lighting is turned on or off
Shutter-Value - Shows the current position of the integrated lens aperture of the camera. This panel provides automatic exposure compensation. This value allows conclusions to be drawn of the intensity of the current lighting. The larger the value, the less ambient light.
