Webinterface

Login

In order to enter the WebUI of the EVN210 run your commonly used browser (Google Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera, 360, QQ etc)  and enter the default IP address:

Default IP address: 192.168.1.188

After you have successfully reached the IP address you will be prompt to login like shown in the figure below:

To login use the default username and password as follows:

Username: admin
password: admin

NOTE: The default username and password can be changed in the account settings which will be explained further on in this manual.

Control Interface

On the right side you have the following control options for the camera: Pan, Tilt, Zoom, Focus, Focus mode, Pan Tilt speed, Focus speed, Zoom speed, Preset position control.

NOTE: Any adjustments made to the PTZ Speed in the WebUI will overrule the settings in the camera that are made via the PTZ controller or IR remote control. For e.g., the PTZ Speed is set to 15 in the OSD menu via the IR remote and in the WebUI it is set to 5. When the camera is controlled by the WebUI the PTZ speed will be 5 and when controlled by the IR remote the PTZ Speed will be 15. So, the device that is used to control the camera is the master. Presets are inherited in the camera and can be called from the WebUI, PTZ Controller or IR remote.

NDI® Settings

Group: NDI® supports Grouping which allows you to hide the visibility of video sources to viewers that are not part of the group. If disabled, the video source is public and viewable by any receiver on your network.

NDI Channel Name: Define how the camera should be recognized in the NDI® network. For e.g., in vMix you will see EVN210 when you add the camera as an NDI® source.

Video Format: Set the NDI® video encoding resolution. The 3G-SDI and HDMI output will follow the same format.

Device Name: Define the device name of the camera.

Encoding quality: Manage the encoding quality of the NDI® stream based on the percentage of bandwidth you’d like to use. Consider the higher the percentage the more bandwidth you’ll be using. The bandwidth usage will be between 93~220 Mbps on range from 75%~150%.

Connection: Here you can enable Multicast to distribute the NDI® stream to multiple destinations.

Discovery server: The NDI discovery service is designed to allow you to replace the automatic discovery NDI uses with a server that operates as a centralized registry of NDI sources. This can be very helpful for installations where you wish to avoid having significant mDNS traffic for many sources. It can also be useful in situations where multicast is not possible or desirable; it is very common for cloud computing services not to allow multicast traffic. When using the discovery service, NDI can operate entirely in unicast mode and thus in almost any installation. The discovery server supports all NDI functionality including NDI groups.

Audio Settings

Select “Audio Setting” to change the volume of the NDI® stream. 

NOTE: The audio source connected to the line-in of the camera normally has its own volume control and can be controlled from the audio source itself. The audio setting as shown above is only to control the volume for the outgoing NDI® stream. For e.g., if the volume is set to ‘0’ and the audio source is on its max, there will be no audio over the NDI® stream.

Camera Settings

In this part we shall go further into details about the camera settings that you can adjust directly from the WebUI.  After you have successfully logged in and navigated to settings, you’ll find on the left side the option “Image Adjust”.  Click on it to see the camera settings like in the right figure below:

Focus

The first parameter that can be configured is the ‘Focus’ and ‘Digital Zoom’ as shown in figure below.

Select “AAC” Advanced Audio Coding to see the following audio settings:

Focus mode: The focus mode can be set to ‘Auto’ or ‘Manual’.

Auto focus
If the camera is being used in an environment where there is not much movement and the scene is quite consistent, then we suggest keeping the focus on auto. The camera will automatically focus on the main person or object in the field of view.

Manual focus
In some situations the operator wants to focus on specific objects, persons, details etc. In this case it is convenient to use ‘Manual focus’. The camera will then accurately focus on what you’d like to put in the spotlight of your production. Furthermore, the manual focus can also be saved in the preset.

Digital Zoom: The EVN210 has 4x Digital Zoom. The Digital Zoom can either be enabled or disabled.

Digital Zoom
The Digital Zoom is used in specific situations where the 20x Optical Zoom of the camera is not enough. It should be considered that Digital Zoom zooms in on a certain portion of the image. That part is then enlarged to the total number of megapixels your camera sensor has. So, in effect, a piece of the image is cut out and resized. Which will result in less image quality.

Exposure

The second parameter that can be configured is the “Exposure” as shown in the figure below:

Exposure is the amount of light that is allowed to pass through the camera’s lens. It affects the brightness and contrast of the image and can be adjusted manually or automatically. Exposure is typically set in terms of shutter speed and aperture (Iris). Shutter speed is the length of time the camera’s shutter is open and allows light to enter the camera, while aperture (Iris) is the size of the camera’s lens opening. The combination of the two determines the amount of light that is let in and affects the exposure of the image.

Exposure modes: Auto / Manual / Iris Priority / Shutter priority / Brightness Priority

Auto
When the camera is in AE (Auto Exposure) mode the camera will regulate the all the exposure settings itself to create the best image.

Manual
In manual mode you are free to change the exposure settings as you like. You’ll be able to manage the Shutter, Iris and Gain of which we will further explain their functions.

Iris Priority
In Iris priority mode only the camera’s aperture can be controlled which is another important factor in controlling exposure. Aperture is the size of the lens opening and affects the amount of light that passes through the lens and falls onto the image sensor. A wide aperture allows more light to enter the camera, resulting in brighter images. A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light entering the camera, resulting in darker images. The EVN210 Aperture ranges from 1.8~14. The lower the number, more light will be allowed to pass through the lens.

Shutter Priority
In shutter Priority mode only the shutter can be enabled. To choose the right Shutter speed you can use the 180 rule. The 180 degree shutter rule is a popular guideline among video makers for setting the shutter speed for proper exposure. It states that the shutter speed should be set at double the frame rate of the video being shot. For example, if a filmmaker is shooting video at 30 frames per second, the shutter speed should be set to 1/60th of a second in order to achieve proper exposure. This shutter speed creates a shutter angle of 180 degrees, hence the name of the rule. This rule has become a standard in the film industry to match what the human eye is used to seeing in real life.

Gain: Enabled in “Manual” mode

Gain is an electronic light amplification of the video signal. This means that the light is boosted electronically, adding more voltage to the pixels on your image causing them to amplify their intensity and therefore brighten your image. This will result in a brighter image in conditions that wouldn’t normally allow it, like when there is insufficient light. The contrary of Gain is noise. The higher the Gain is set the more noise will occur.

Brightness: Enabled in “Brightness Priority” mode.

Brightness is a term used to describe the overall light intensity of the image and is used to adjust the overall level of brightness of the image.

NOTE: Gain and brightness are both terms that are used to describe the intensity of the light or image. Gain is more closely associated with increasing the intensity of the signal, whereas brightness is more closely associated with adjusting the overall light intensity of the image. Gain is used to increase the intensity of the light or image, whereas brightness is used to adjust the overall level of brightness of the image.

Anti-Flicker (60Hz/50Hz): Only adjustable in “Auto and Iris Priority” mode.

Anti-Flicker is a feature that helps reduce or eliminate flickering images caused by fluorescent or other artificial lighting sources. It works by adjusting the shutter speed to match the frequency of the artificial light source. This helps to reduce the amount of flickering that occurs in the images.

White Balance

The third parameter that can be configured is the “White Balance” as shown in the figure below:

White balance is essentially the process of adjusting the colors in an image so that all colors appear as they should. This is done by compensating for the different color temperatures of light sources, such as natural sunlight, incandescent light bulbs, and LED lights.

White Balance Modes: Auto / Indoor / Outdoor / One Push / Auto Tracking / Manual / Color Temperature.

Auto
When the camera is set to auto white balance settings, it assumes that the light source is a neutral white. This means that the colors in the scene will be rendered accurately. However, if the light source is not neutral white, then the colors in the scene may be rendered inaccurately. In that case, the white balance settings should be manually adjusted to ensure that the colors in the scene appear as they should.

Indoor
Indoor white balance is a term used to describe the process of adjusting the colors of an image to accurately reflect the colors of the original scene. This is important for any image taken indoors because the lighting conditions are often much different than those outside. Without some form of white balance, images taken indoors can appear too yellow, orange, or blue because of the different types of lighting used.

Outdoor
Outdoor white balance is a setting that adjusts the color balance of the image to account for the brightness of the sun. This setting helps to ensure that the colors in the video image are accurately reproduced. This white balance mode should be used when shooting in natural light, as it can help to reduce the blue or yellow cast that can occur when shooting in direct sunlight. Additionally, outdoor white balance can help to reduce the amount of noise in the video image, resulting in a more vibrant and accurate image.

One Push
One Push White Balance is a feature that allows users to easily set their white balance settings. This feature uses the camera’s auto white balance system and allows the user to adjust the white balance settings with a single click. This is useful when shooting in different lighting conditions, such as indoor and outdoor, as it ensures that the images and videos produced will be accurately colored. The One push can be triggered by using a gray card or white sheet of paper and by pressing the “push” button next to the WB mode selection. With the IR remote you need to press F3.

Auto Tracking
ATWB is especially useful when shooting in mixed lighting conditions, where multiple light sources are present in the scene. Without ATWB, the camera would have to be manually adjusted for each light source in the scene, which can be time-consuming and difficult. With ATWB, the camera can automatically adjust the White Balance for each light source, resulting in consistent and accurate color reproduction. ATWB can also be used to correct color casts that may be present in an image. For example, if a scene has an overall yellow-ish cast, ATWB can be used to adjust the White Balance and correct the color cast.

Manual
In manual mode the Red and the Blue gain can be adjusted to create ultimate color conditions.

Color Temperature
Color temperature is a measure of the hue of a particular light source and is expressed in degrees Kelvin (K). In color theory, color temperature is used to describe the warmth or coolness of a particular color. Colors are typically described as either warm (red, orange, yellow) or cool (blue, green, violet). The higher the color temperature, the cooler the color. For example, a bright white light has a high color temperature, while a warm yellow light has a low color temperature.  The Color temperature mode is used to adjust the white balance. Adjusting the color temperature can make a scene look more natural or can be used to create a particular mood or atmosphere. For example, a warmer color temperature will create a more relaxed atmosphere, while a cooler color temperature will create a more energetic atmosphere. The color temperature can only be adjusted in “Color Temperature)” mode (2500~10000).

Image

In the fourth section of the camera settings, you can adjust the parameters as shown in the figure below. We shall further explain each one. 

Mirror
When mirror is enabled the video image will be mirrored. Default this mirroring is disabled.

Flip
When Flip is enabled the video image will be shown upside down. This is used in situations where the camera is mounted upside down to the ceiling.

BLC (Backlight Compensation)
Backlight compensation adjusts the exposure to compensate for overly bright background light. It is used to ensure that the main object is properly exposed and not lost in the shadows due to the intense background lighting. Backlight compensation works by increasing the exposure of the foreground and allowing more light to hit the object. This setting can be enabled or disabled.

Gamma
Gamma is a setting that adjusts the contrast of an image. It is typically used to make subtle adjustments to the midtones and shadows of an image. It is an important tool to fine-tune the overall look of an image.  When adjusting the gamma of a camera, the result is a change in the level of brightness of midtones and shadows. If the gamma is too high, the overall image may appear washed out and lack contrast. If the gamma is too low, the image may appear too dark and lack detail in the midtones and shadows.

D-WDR
D-WDR (Directional Wide Dynamic Range) is a type of image processing technology that is designed to improve the video image quality in scenes with high contrast. It does this by increasing the dynamic range of the scene. This allows the camera to capture more details in both the light and dark areas of the scene resulting in a better range of detail and texture to be captured. Using D-WDR technology can help reduce the amount of noise and grain present in video images taken in low light conditions.

NOTE: The main difference between WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) and Gamma is how they affect the lighting in a scene. WDR is a technique that is used to capture both bright and dark areas of a scene simultaneously, while Gamma is a method of adjusting the brightness, contrast, and color of an image.

Image Settings

In this section of the camera settings, you can adjust the overall image parameters as shown in the figure below. We shall further explain each one. 

Brightness
Brightness is a term used to describe the overall light intensity of the image and is used to adjust the overall level of brightness of the image.

NOTE: when the exposure settings are in “Manual” or “Brightness Priority” mode the brightness option is disabled. The brightness can then be configured in the exposure settings.

Sharpness
The camera sharpness is a measure of the quality of an image that is captured. It is determined by the level of detail that is present in an image, as well as the clarity of the image. A sharp image will have crisp edges and accurate color representation, while a blurry image will appear soft and may not have accurate color representation. You can adjust the level of sharpness according to your video scene.

Contrast
Camera contrast It helps to make the video image more dynamic and interesting. It refers to the difference in brightness between different parts of the image. A higher contrast video image brings out more details and textures combined with intense dark and light areas, while a lower contrast video image will have a more subtle and calming effect.

Saturation
Saturation is the density of a color. Higher saturation makes the colors appear richer, while lower saturation makes it appear paler.

Noise Reduction

In the last section of the camera settings DNR (digital noise reduction) can be applied. DNR is technology that can help eliminate or reduce noise effectively and efficiently. There are two primary methods used in video to reduce noise in a video image: 2D and 3D

2D Noise Reduction: Enable / Disable
2D digital noise reduction is the simplest way to reduce video noise. It uses the temporal method for reducing noise. It compares pixels and removes ones that don’t appear in every frame. These irregular pixels are considered image noise. 2D Noise Reduction works best with low-resolution footage. With higher resolution footage, this method is virtually ineffective. While effective, this form of noise reduction can blur images or leave movement trails.

3D Noise Reduction: Enable or Disable / Auto / 1~4
3D digital noise reduction uses an algorithm to compare pixels in a sequence of frames. First, it analyzes the pixels in each frame, and then it compares the frames to see which pixels move or change. It is highly effective at isolating pixels considered noise and generally better at eliminating that grainy look common with low-light video. 3D is also the better choice for videos with lots of motion because it does not create motion blur like 2D DNR. Additionally, 3D DNR works well on high-resolution footage, whereas 2D does not.

Network Settings

Click “Ethernet” to see settings as shown in the figure below:

DHCP: Enable/Disable

Enable DHCP if the camera is connected to a DHCP router that dynamically grants an IP address, netmask, gateway, and DNS. When DHCP is disabled, you would need to manually set the IP address, netmask, gateway, and DNS.

HTTP Port:80

This is a standardized Port number to communicate between webclients and webservers. We suggest not to change this unless you have specific reasons.

RTSP Port: 554
This is the communication port used to stream the RTSP stream to any RTSP receiving hardware or software. We suggest not to change this unless you have specific reasons.
