6 Leading with Innovation
1999 – First CMOS progressive scan 1999 – First Power-over-Ethernet 1999 – First digital pan/tilt/zoom 2000 – First megapixel IP camera 2003 – First HDTV images 2004 – First multi-megapixel IP cameras 2005 – First and only on-camera Digital Image Authentication 2007 – First all-weather multi-megapixel PoE network camera

7 Video Surveillance Goals
General Surveillance - live viewing High detail on recorded video not a priority Forensic – recognizable images People, vehicle type, license plates, details for accurate “after the fact” analysis High Detail – “evidentiary quality video” Currency, facial ID, license plates

8 Resolution Benefits Larger field-of-view More image detail
Evidenciary quality in surveillance Fewer cameras needed Less installation and maintence costs (TCO) Replace mechanical PTZ – never miss a thing. Higher results with smart IP video (Video Analytics)

9 Why Megapixel? Why not Megapixel?

10 Megapixel Resolution = Greater Digital Zoom Image Detail
What they have What they want If your video is unusable, why bother?

11 What they have What they want

12 Resolutions Compared IQeye 5.0 MP 2560x1920 IQeye 3.1 MP 2048x1535
PAL 720x576 VGA 640x480 CIF 352x288

13 Resolutions Compared

14 Camera Coverage w/ Forensic Detail
(131 pixels/m) VGA = 4.9m HD720p = 9.8m HD1080p = 14.6m 3Mpix = 15.5m Megapixel = fewer cameras so now that you know what coverage they need and where they need it, you can select the perfect camera or cameras for the application. This slide shows you how wide an area a camera can cover and provide Forensic Detail. The higher the resolution the greater area a camera coverage so depending on your application you may be able to use a lot fewer high res cameras which can save a lot of money 5Mpix = 19.5m 14

They may WANT to have high detail coverage over their entire site, but do they have the budget for it? Probably not. The easy thing to do here would be to tell them to go with lower resolution cameras covering a wide area but is that really what they need? Its up to you to help them understand what they need and can afford. Even though they WANT to have the high detail, it may turn out that (change slides) 15

16 NEEDS General Surveillance Building PARKING LOT Forensic Forensic
They may really need a lot less. Once you have helped the customer define what image quality they need and where they need it, you have eliminated two variables so now we are into basic number crunching. The most important number we need to crunch is storage and/or bandwidth because that will have a big impact on the system cost. Forensic 16


18 What Frame Rate do you NEED?
= # Images subject speed x fps coverage area Now you have determined what type of surveillance you need, what coverage you need and the optimal selection of cameras to cover your area, what frame rate do you need? It depends on 3 things, How many pictures do you want to capture of a subject while it is in the field of view. How fast are the subjects travelling at and last, how wide an area is the camera covering? How wide is the area? 18

19 10 frames captured 21 frames captured 32 frames captured
VGA 10 frames captured HD720p 21 frames captured HD1080p 32 frames captured 3MP 35 frames captured Perhaps this will illustrate this better. This slide shows how many images different cameras will capture with all other things being equal. As you can see (hit ENTER) a subject travelling at 16kph takes longer to get through a wider coverage area than a narrow one. The longer it takes, the more images you capture (hit ENTER). If you are covering a narrow area, you need higher fps to capture the same # of images when you are covering a wide area. So in this example, you could run a 5 MP camera at less than ¼ the frame rate as a VGA camera and still capture as many images GO to next slide 5MP 43 frames captured 19

20 Digital Pan/Tilt/Zoom
Lets you virtually move around a large image using a smaller viewing window No moving parts Capture everything, all the time Multiple simultaneous control

21 Digital Pan/Tilt/Zoom – how it works
Quality zoom made possible by using Downsampling from multi-megapixel images Digital Zoom Factor 1X source 8:1 view Digital Zoom Factor 2X source 4:1 view Digital Zoom Factor 4X source 2:1 view Digital zoom uses two methods to resize source images for viewing. Downsample is used when the source resolution is larger than the viewing window, and is a lossless zoom. Upsample is used when the source is smaller, and quality degrades after one or two steps. Powerful, high quality digital zoom is made possible by using downsampling from multi-megapixel source images. Digital Zoom Factor 8X source 1:1 view Digital Zoom Factor 16X source 1:2 view Digital Zoom Factor 32X source 1:4 view

26 Time for a little Paradigm shift… Full Motion Video vs
Time for a little Paradigm shift… Full Motion Video vs Hi Resolution Forensic imaging Standard resolution - full motion video “its comfortable” 640 x 480 = YouTube! Megapixel resolution - forensic Imaging for meaningful investigations 1600 x 1200 = Identify faces/license plates So this is the basic principle. Full motion for live viewing. Looks better live. No stomach ache. My experience tells me 2-5 fps is best. Therefore let’s look at It’s the Frame, NOT the Frame Rate!

27 Megapixel cameras…are bandwidth killers
Full Motion Video vs Hi Resolution Forensic Imaging 640 x 20fps = 6.4 Mbit/sec 1600 x 5fps = 5.6 Mbit/Sec OR… using IQeye digital cropping 1600 x 5fps = 2.96 Mbit/Sec So the MESSEGE here is to slow down and get more useful pixels on target Keep in mind we ONLY record on motion and IQ cameras can deliver multiple streams at independent resolutions and frame rates. How do we arrive at the 1600 x 600 resolution?? Let’s take a look . . .

50 Sentinel Series Easy Installation
Install Junction Box Make Connections Close Junction Box Adjust Camera Position Remove Lens Cover Set FOV and Focus Close Lens Cover DONE! Rattle through the steps and go to the next slides if you want to show greater detail PRIMARY MESSAGE: installs go smoothly and quickly. Also discuss ALL CABLES CAPTIVE. No exposed cables in the installation. Reference camera catalogs All major required tools for installation (3mm Allen Wrench, Punch Down Tool) are included!

51 Sentinel Series ease-of-installation
STEP 1: INSTALL JUNCTION BOX Determine how you want the Junction Box mounted (see photos): Ceiling Mount Wall Mount Parapet Mount Install the Junction Box using supplied 2” slotted hex screws (we even threw in a mounting hole template in the box) Hang the camera on either side hanger 1 2 Note that we clearly labeled everything on the PCB board and even have an easy to read labeling diagram on the back side of the cover to make it easy to identify all connections. The screw terminals on the center I/O and power strip are clearly labeled in large letters and don’t require a watchmaker’s screwdriver to loosen and tighten VERY easy to tell which connectors are used from cables coming from the wall, and which connections are from cables coming from the camera 3

52 Sentinel Series ease-of-installation
INSTALL JUNCTION BOX (cont.) Feed PoE CAT 5 Cable through right side Heyco fitting Use supplied punch down tool to connect CAT 5 or crimp a CAT 5 connector onto the cable and plug it in Ethernet via RJ-45 or punch down Note that the junction box is so well sealed that merely seating the cover on the box seals it. No torquing of the screws is needed. It just works. Installation Hangers on both sides Twin Heyco sealed connectors

53 Sentinel Series ease-of-installation
STEP 2: MAKE CONNECTIONS Connect the pre-wired CAT 5 connector from the camera to the labeled “camera side” connector Connect the 8 pin Aux/IO connector from the camera to the labeled “camera side” connector STEP 3: CLOSE JUNCTION BOX Close the box using the 3mm hex tool we include! Both hands free to work on camera through 90% of the installation Hanger works regardless of configuration or side (Ceiling, Wall, or Parapet) Perhaps demonstrate this by leaving it on the hanger and tilting it in different directions. Emphasize that the same 3mm tool is used to open/close the box, adjust the camera position, and even to open the lens cover

54 Sentinel Series ease-of-installation
STEP 4: ADJUST CAMERA POSITION STEP 5: REMOVE LENS COVER Using the 3mm hex tool, loosen the two screws on the front of the lens cover Slide the lens cover out and let it drop on its captive leashes STEP 6: SET FOV AND FOCUS Using the IQfocus port and any analog test monitor, adjust field of view and focus Again, same tool to open the lens cover Speak about the glass defogging technology here, speak to the fact that the leashed shroud allows full use of both hands while setting field of view and focusing

55 Sentinel Series ease-of-installation
STEP 7: CLOSE LENS COVER STEP 8: DONE! Entire installation, including mounting the Junction Box, takes less than 20 minutes Note that the tool used to open/close the junction box is the same one used to do all wall adjustments, and it’s even the same one used to adjust and remove/install the sun shield. Note that it’s designed to look cool with or without the sun shield, and that the sun shield is very easy to adjust and put on or take off.

56 You may wonder why IQ waited so long to come out with a dome…it wasn’t for a lack of Asian manufacturers wanting to make one for us. It’s because, like everything else at IQ, we wanted to do it right. Welcome to the IQeye Alliance Road Show.

57 Performance End Users Want
Vandal-resistant Low-profile Surface mount TRUE 3-axis gimbal Pivoting shroud Concealed electronics Exclusive multi-megapixel rated lens When we were designing the Alliance dome we looked at a lot of domes from a lot of manufacturers and it seemed most were designed for the consumer market. They were plastic, some had thin bubbles and could be pretty awkward to install. It was pretty apparent that they were more concerned with cutting out manufacturing costs than designing a truly solid product. At IQinVision we know that if we design products that save time & money on installations and can stand the test of time, our customers will be satisfied today and for a long time to come. So what differentiates the IQeye Alliance? First, lets take a look at the hardware. The IQeye Alliance is aluminum with a GE Lexan bubble that can take quite a shot (video clip of baseball bat shot). It’s low profile design makes it inconspicuous but not covert. The entire camera was designed to be surface mounted so you get that “flush mount” look without having to cut into the ceiling. Also, it is designed with a true 3-axis gimbal that allows you to position it in a wide variety of mounting applications very easily. With a lot of the domes we looked at, you had to adjust to the camera then align the shroud, if they weren’t optimized you had to start again which was frustrating. The Alliance’s pivoting shroud solves that problem, just optimize the field of view and focus the picture and the shroud will snap perfectly in place, we’ll demonstrate this in a minute. We also knew that sometimes light could reflect off the electronics so we installed a black plastic cover over the electronics to eliminate reflection making it difficult to see which way the camera is pointing even though it is a clear bubble. The clear bubble also means better low-light performance. The power and network activity within the Alliance will go out a minute after power-up. Last on this slide, we have designed a custom megapixel board mount lens for the Alliance. We have seen other companies put really cheap lenses on a megapixel camera and let me tell you, you can really make a megapixel image look bad with a lens that is not rated for the camera. It is like putting bike tires on a Ferrari.

58 Simplicity Integrators Appreciate
VGA, 1.3 MP and 2 MP models IQcameo-64 independent streams Available with H.264/audio IQfocus and full-time analog video CMOS, PoE Alarm I/O SD card storage for IQrecorder Now let’s look at some other features: First, the Alliance is available in 640x480, 1.3 and 2 megapixel models. The Alliance is a multi-stream camera with our latest IQcameo feature which we’ll show you later. Every IQeye including the Alliance delivers MJPEG images which is the standard for high-quality images. But the Alliance will also be the first IQeye camera to deliver H.264 images simultaneously at up to D1 resolution which is great for remote viewing where bandwidth is a concern. The Alliance actually has TWO analog video outputs. One is a full-time VGA analog output which is great for real-time monitoring or things like Public View Monitors. The other is mounted inside the bubble, and can be used for setting field-of-view and focusing the camera so you don’t have to go to a PC. The IQeye Alliance is almost identical in performance to our popular IQeye700 series, it has alarm I/Os, on-camera recording capability, and like all IQeye cameras is PoE. The Alliance also uses CMOS Progressive Scan which is very low power, so in that sense we are “green”. It also includes standard IQeye features such as digital image cropping, exposure zones, privacy masking, the list goes on.

63 Lenses 101 The basics (and some advanced)
Focal Length and Field-of-view width F-Stop – fast and slow lenses Megapixel rating and spot size Lens format vs Imager format “Day/Night” lenses – IR correction Manual Iris vs.... Auto-Iris vs Fixed Iris C-mount, CS-mount, board-mount

64 CS-mount & C-Mount lenses
There are two mount standards They look the same and both have a 1” thread The difference is the distance from the lens to the sensor when installed on the camera CS-Mount distance is 17.5mm C-Mount distance is 12.5mm

65 Sensor Size and Lens Format
IQeye cameras are available with a 1/3” or ½” sensor size Lenses are manufactured to match these sizes

66 Focus, Zoom and Iris adjustments
Focus adjustment is marked with ‘Near’ and ‘Far’ or ‘N’ and Adjustment for the iris is marked with an ‘O’ and ‘C’ or ‘Open’ and ‘Closed’ Typical adjustment for the Field of view is marked with the mm ranges.

67 Sensor Size and Lens Format
If the lens format is smaller than the sensor size then you will get dark corners or a “Port Hole” effect

68 Sensor Size and Lens Format
Larger lens formats can be used on cameras with smaller sensor sizes. NOTE: The field-of-view will be smaller (more telephoto) because the images captured by the lens is outside the sensor.

69 What should be considered in a lens?
Megapixel-rated lenses are recommended Manual or fixed iris supported CS mount C/CS adapter required for C-mount lenses 1/2-inch or 1/3-inch formats IR corrected for day/night cameras Low f-stop

70 Lenses 101 Focal Length and Field-of-view width
All lenses have a focal length Focal length is the distance between the imager and the forward optics of the lens Focal length is either fixed or varifocal Fixed = never changes Varifocal = adjustable Integrators prefer varifocal because they are adjustable in the field Fixed focal lenses generally offer better performance than varifocal Fewer optics = better performance The longer the focal length, the more telephoto the image will be and the higher the F-Stop will be and vise-versa Imager Focal Length

71 Lenses 101 Focal Length and Field-of-view width
Shorter Focal Length – 4.5mm Imager Shorter Focal Length = Wider Field of View and less zoom

72 Lenses 101 Focal Length and Field-of-view width
Longer Focal Length – 13mm Imager Longer Focal Length = Narrower Field of View but more zoom

73 Lenses 101 F-Stop, Fast and Slow Lenses
The term “F-Stop” is also referred to as “lens speed” Simply put, the lower the lens F-Stop, the more efficient it is at letting light in Each of these steps is half the light of the previous step: f/1, f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/11, f/16, f/22 F-Stop rating on a varifocal lens is the rating for the widest setting. It’s F-Stop at the lens’s telephoto setting is usually much higher (slower)

74 Lenses 101 Focal Length and F-Stop
Because telephoto by its nature is taking in a smaller field of view, it’s also taking in less light. Telephoto lenses have a higher F-Stop rating than Wide angle lenses. This is very important in low light applications i.e. a camera may have a “0.2” lux rating, but if it has a lens with a F2.8 rating, it’s only letting in 1/8 the available light, so it will be darker (more noisy)

75 Lenses 101 Megapixel Rating and Spot Size
All lenses have some sort of resolution rating, even if the manufacturer doesn’t publish it. This rating is referred to interchangeably as: TV Line Rating (old school) Resolution (i.e. 1.3 Megapixel, 5 Megapixel, etc.) Spot size (the smaller the better) Most of the time, that rating is the lens center rating Lenses tend to lose resolution toward the edges Manufacturer ratings tend to be unreliable Some lenses that aren’t even megapixel “rated” perform very well on megapixel cameras Some lenses that have a megapixel rating don’t do as well as claimed

76 Lenses 101 Megapixel Rating and Spot Size
Some things to keep in mind Lens ratings are only a guideline i.e. our V7 is the best glass on the market but is only officially rated at 3 MP, but works great on our 5 MP cameras Lens performance is subjective What you think looks great and vivid might look blurry to somebody else. In the end we can only guide customers to make the right lens choice Great camera plus really cheap lens = bad image Some customers buy our cameras but then pair them with inexpensive standard resolution lenses, then complain to us about fuzzy images IQinVision strenuously qualifies EVERY lens we sell and offer kits that best pair our lenses with the appropriate camera(s) Learn your lenses – you should know automatically which lenses work best (and worst) with which cameras.

77 Lenses 101 Lens format vs........ Imager format
Imagers come in different size formats i.e. 1/2”, 1/3”, 1/4”, 1/6” etc. Today, all IQinVision cameras are either 1/2” or 1/3” format So do lenses i.e. 2/3”, 1/2”, 1/3”, etc. Today, all IQinVision lenses are either 1/2” or 1/3” format Matchups Matching the format of the lens with the imager is ideal However you can put a bigger lens on a smaller imager: This uses more of the len’s “sweet spot” But it will make the images more telephoto Also since the lens is gathering more light than is actually hitting the imager, in effect this raises the F-Stop (slower lens) Putting a smaller format lens on a larger format imager is bad You will get vignettes on the corners of the image.

78 Lenses 101 IR Corrected “Day/Night” lenses
Infrared (IR) light bends more quickly than visible light Lenses that have poor or no IR correction will show blurry images Imager Infrared Light Visible Light

79 Lenses 101 IR Corrected “Day/Night” lenses
IR Corrected lenses correct the IR light bend so it focuses on the same point as visible light NOTE: You can use IR corrected lenses on non-day/night cameras with no ill effects Imager Infrared Light Visible Light

80 Lenses 101 Manual Iris vs........ Auto iris vs....... Fixed Iris
What is an iris? A fixed or adjustable diaphragm that allows more or less light to hit the sensor. Three types Manual – Has to be adjusted manually by the installer during setup Auto iris – Powered, mechanical iris that adjusts as light conditions change Fixed – Set by the lens manufacturer and is not adjustable Six-bladed camera iris

81 Lenses 101 Manual Iris vs........ Auto iris vs....... Fixed Iris
Is Auto iris better? Auto iris lenses were invented for three reasons: CCD sensors have poor dynamic range and one of the ways to counter this is to close the iris during bright conditions Bright sunlight can damage CCD sensors Older analog cameras that do not contain advanced digital signal processing like IQeye cameras could not compensate well for changing lighting conditions Auto iris lenses have some weaknesses MUCH lower life expectancy than manual iris lenses (and when they break, they break closed) They can cause “strobing” or “hunting” Auto iris lens

82 Lenses 101 C, CS and Board Mount
Most of our traditional cameras are “CS” mount They will accept CS mount lenses They will accept C mount lenses that have the appropriate C to CS mount adapter Some of our cameras are Board mount All of our board cameras come with the appropriate lens already, there is no “no lens” option Alliance is an example C mount lens with C to CS mount adapter Board Mount Lens

90 Compression Compressed vs........ Not compressed Compression types

91 Compression MJPEG (IQinVision) Intraframe compression
Oldest form of streaming compression Series of snapshots Each frame is individually compressed Considered superior image quality, particularly in applications with a lot of movement Most practical compression today for megapixel Relatively large file sizes compared to MPEG-4 and H.264

92 Compression MPEG-4 Interframe compression “Temporal” compression
I-Frame or “Key” frame is similar to MJPEG frame Next several frames measure changes to I-Frame, these are called reference or “R” frames I-Frames are same size as MJPEG frames, but R-frames can be MUCH smaller Supports audio synch (MJPEG does not) Inefficient and prone to errors in areas of high movement Very processor intensive, difficult to do effectively with Megapixel sensors

93 Compression H.264 Interframe compression
Also a form of “Temporal” compression, in fact it’s really the layer 10 standard of MPEG, or MPEG-10 Less prone to errors in high motion, more capable of compressing megapixel resolutions VERY processor intensive, both in compression and decompression Few or no NVRs support H.264 today, but it is considered the future of temporal compression There is no magic bullet compression. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses

94 Neither is better than the other. It depends on the application
CCD vs CMOS CMOS Sensors (what IQinVision uses) CMOS = Complimentary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor Cheaper to manufacturer in Megapixel resolution than CCD Natively higher Wide Dynamic Range (wait, what’s that?) Requires less power Most digital cameras and cell phone cameras use CMOS CCD (what most standard res cameras use) CCD = Charge-Coupled Device Most Security cameras use CCD sensors Tend to over-saturate reds/greens, but then again, that’s what customers are used to Better low-light sensitivity More expensive to produce Consumes more power than CMOS Neither is better than the other. It depends on the application

95 Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Cost to select Cost to acquire Cost to remove legacy system Cost to install new system Cost to make systems work together Cost to train employees on use of new system (both current and future ee’s) Cost to maintain system Cost to expand system Cost to remove and dispose of system

96 Typical Turnkey Project Profile
Technology is only 10% to 15% of the Project! Engineering and Commissioning 20 to 25% Peripherals 15 to 20% Integral’s Technology 10 to 15% Warranty 3 to 5% Installation 25 to 40% Profit 5 to 10%

97 Image Optimization Selecting the correct camera
Selecting the correct compression type Using Pro Line features: Lightgrabber® Telnet access


Old School Frame Integration On older analog cameras, the cameras had two take 2 or more frames of video, add them together and then send out a single frame Very hard to control blur Each frame was independently white balanced, so the combining of frames often made for odd coloring in changing scenes Very limited exposure control Effects of gain (graininess) combined as frames added together

What do they do? Our LIGHTGRABBER feature deliver performance that rivals the best day/night cameras in the industry. How do they work? They dynamically adjust each IQeye in real-time for sensitivity and motion using advanced digital frame integration and signal processing to achieve optimal image quality in any lighting situation. Where are they found? Controls are either on the Image tab on firmware versions earlier firmware and on the Setup/Basic tab on firmware 2.9/2 and later.

Earlier than 2.9/2 – “Image” tab 2.9/2 and Later – “Setup” tab

IQeye LIGHTGRABBER increases signal gain and exposure time to create brighter images in otherwise dark fields of view. Though IQeye LIGHTGRABBER can significantly increase the brightness of a dark field of view, there are tradeoffs: Increasing the gain also increases the noise or “graininess” of an image. Increasing the exposure time means objects that are moving in the image may be blurred.

Glossary of Terms Gain – Amplifying the signal. This makes an image look brighter, but also amplifies the “noise” in the image Exposure – This is the amount of time that the pixels are allowed to gather light before they send out a reading to the processor. Just like a regular camera, the longer you leave the shutter open, the more light comes in. Exposure is normally measured in “Hertz” where 30hz means a full second (30 FPS), so 1hz = 1/30th of a second, 15hz = 15/30 (1/2) a second, etc. Frame rate – This is the number of frames per second that a camera produces, such as 1 fps, 2 fps, 5 fps, etc. Frame Integration – Reference to an analog technology that took two or more frames and added them together before transmission. LIGHTGRABBERTM – IQinVision feature that uses a combination of Gain and Exposure to improve low light performance.

IQeye LIGHTGRABBER has four different settings Disabled – IQ LIGHTGRABBER functionality disabled 1x - Only the gain function is increased. Images may look noisier and grainier*, but not blurrier than if it was disabled. 2x - Gain is increased, and exposure time is slowed to 15 Hz (.067 seconds). This will also slow the maximum frame rate to 15 fps. 4x - Gain is increased, and exposure time is slowed to 7.5 Hz (.133 seconds). This will also slow the maximum frame rate to 7.5 fps. *If conditions are bright enough, the gain will not increase and images won’t look grainy

Other stuff you should know - When activated, IQeye LIGHTGRABBERTM will override the camera’s frame rate. Example 1: If the camera’s max frame rate is set to 30fps and IQeye LIGHTGRABBER is set to 2x, when it gets dark enough IQeye LIGHTGRABBER will reduce the frame rate to 15 fps. Example 2: If the camera’s max frame rate is set to 30fps and IQeye LIGHTGRABBER is set to 4x, when it gets dark enough IQeye LIGHTGRABBER will reduce the frame rate to 7.5 fps.

IQeye LIGHTGRABBER Disabled Image is dark Moving objects are not blurry Image is slightly grainy because of normal gain adjustments No fps change

IQeye LIGHTGRABBER – 1X Only Gain is affected, no exposure adjustment. Image is a little brighter Image is a little more grainy than usual Moving objects are only slightly blurred No fps change

IQeye LIGHTGRABBER – 2X More Gain, and some Exposure increase Image is brighter Image is a quite grainy Moving objects are blurry 15 fps maximum

IQeye LIGHTGRABBER – 4X Exposure time is doubled Image is much brighter Image is grainy, but not as much as 2X Moving objects are very blurry 7.5 fps maximum

IQeye LIGHTGRABBER – 4X – Bright Field of View IQeye LIGHTGRABBER turns itself off in bright conditions. Gain and exposure settings are not modified by LIGHTGRABBER Moving objects show no blur No perceivable graininess No fps change

116 Top 10 4. What type of CF (Compact Flash) media does the IQeye 7xx series cameras support? The CF (Compact Flash) media slot on the IQeye 7xx series camera supports both Type I or Type II CF media. Type I media is typically flash memory, and Type II media is typically Microdrives.

117 Top 10 5. What type of SD (Secure Digital) media does the IQeye Alliance Series dome cameras support? The SD media slot on the Alliance series cameras supports SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) media. This media is typically 4GB in capacity or higher.

118 Top 10 6. How can I record an H.264 stream without an NVR? To record an H.264 stream with audio you must use a third party capture software solution, such as VideoLan Player. VLC allows you to request the RTSP stream. VideoLan can be downloaded for free at A technical tip walk-through is also available in the Tech Tips section on this page.

119 Top 10 7. Can IQrecorder record H.264 stream? IQrecorder will not record the H.264 stream. IQrecorder will only record the MJPEG image stream from the IQeye cameras.

120 Top 10 8. Why will the lens not focus? When a lens will not focus on an IQeye camera you want to check the type of lens being installed. There are two types of lens mounts, C-mount and CS-mount. All IQeye cameras use a CS lens mount, and can accommodate either a CS-mount of C-mount lens. If a C-mount lens is being installed it will require a C-to-CS adapter. A C-to-CS adapter is a 5mm spacer that threads onto the camera to provide the appropriate spacing between the lens and the camera so the lens can focus. Note: All C-mount lenses shipped from IQinVision include the C-to-CS adapter ring.

121 Top 10 9. Are IQeye cameras sensitive to infrared light? IQeye cameras use color Megapixel, Wide VGA, or VGA image sensors. An infrared cut filter is placed in front of the image sensor for accurate color reproduction. Therefore IQeye cameras with a permanent infrared cut filer will not be sensitive to infrared light. IQeye cameras with a movable Infrared cut filter will be sensitive to Infrared light with a wavelength of nm. IQeye offers the IQ75x and Sentinel series cameras with true day/night functionality ensuring infrared sensitivity with black and white video at night.

122 Top 10 10. How do I initiate a telnet session? 1) Open a command prompt. 2) Type 'telnet <camIP> 3) At Username> root 4) At Local2_> su (short for Super User) 5) At Password> <root password> - default is 'system' 6) Local _2 >> Double carat indicates we are logged on with priveleges.

123 Camera & Lens Selection
(Image Detail, Horizontal FOV, Distance) To select the proper camera/lense combination you must first decide what image detail you want. To recognize faces or read a license plate you need at least 40 pixels/foot (131 pixels/meter)

124 Pixels/foot How much is enough?

125 Pixels/foot How much is enough?

126 Telnet Telnet enables access to the advance functionality of the camera To initiate a telnet session Open a command prompt Type: telnet <Cam IP> At the Username prompt type: root At the Local_2> type: su (short for Super User) At the password prompt type the administrative password for the root username (the default is ‘system’). Note: when typing in the password, the characters will not appear as you type. You will now see a Local_2>> (the double carat indicates that we are logged into the camera with privileges)

127 Troubleshooting with Telnet
Netstat Shows the current IP’s connected to the camera Handy for seeing what IP’s are accessing the camera. Great for checking if too many simultaneous connections to the camera are causing network bottlenecks

128 Telnet Initiate a telnet session Login to the camera via. telnet

129 Telnet Apropos The Apropos command contains commands for the specified keyword If the keyword cannot be found, the display will output will state ‘nothing appropriate’ You can think of this command as asking ‘where do I start’?

130 Telnet Help The Help command will display all of the commands that are currently available for that string. A ? Can also be used to represent ‘help’ You can think of the ‘help’ and ‘?’ as asking ‘what comes next’?

131 Telnet Set, Save, Define commands Set Save Define
This command changes the parameters value immediately, but not permanently. This is a good command to use for experimentation, without changing any permanently stored parameters Save This command is used after the ‘set’ command to save it into permanent memory. This is used after you have determined that you want to keep the ‘set’ entry permanently Define This command changes the parameter permanently, but not immediately. You will need to reboot to see the change. Note: not all ‘Set’ commands have a corresponding ‘Save’command. Define may need to be used to set certain parameters. To determine which parameters have been saved to permanent memory use the ‘List’ command. We will cover this next.

132 Telnet List vs........ Save commands List Show
This command will display the permanent settings in the camera (those made by the ‘Define’ command) Show This command will display the current settings in the camera (those made by the ‘set’ command, but not permanently ‘saved’ or ‘defined’)

138 Cronscripts A cronscript configures the camera to perform tasks at specified times and dates. The commands are held in a file called ‘crontab’ (no file extension). This is stored locally on the cameras /Flash/ directory. The files holds the commands (based off of telnet commands), along with the time parameters on when to execute the given commands. Each task will contain time/date fields, along with corresponding command. You can use comma’s and dashes in the time/date field. You can use * as a wildcard to tell the camera to disregard that field You can use the # symbol in a line, to tell the script to ignore the entire line. This is beneficial to add a description to the cronscript

139 Cronscripts Time fields (from left to right). Minute (0-59)
Hour (0-23) Day of the month (1-31) Month of the year (1-12) Day of the week (0-6 with 0=Sunday)

140 Cronscripts Example Script

141 Exposure Settings Explained
The exposure settings will optimize only for the pixels inside of the exposure window Average will optimize for both the brightest and the darkest pixels inside of the exposure window ClipAverage will ignore the brightest and darkest pixels inside of the exposure window, and optimize for the median of the pixels. This is IQeye’s default exposure setting DarkDetect will optimize for the darkest pixels inside of the exposure window PeakDetect will optimize for the brightest pixels inside of the exposure window

142 Rolling Shutter versus Global Shutter
Exposes the entire imager at once (simultaneously). The entire frame is exposed and gathers light. After the shutter speed has passed the sensor stops gathering light and turn the light into an image. There is no physical shutter that covers / uncovers the sensor – its all accomplished via timing. In real-time the global shutter process happens at 1/60th of a second. ROLLING SHUTTER The rolling shutter exposes different portions of the frame a t different points in time. There is no physical moving shutter. Different portion of the sensor is sensitive to light at different moments in time. The rolling shutter process proceeds down the sensor until the entire frame is exposed. In real time the rolling shutter takes 1/60 of a second.
