Solution

Presetting Best Shot (Preset)

You can perform the following settings with Preset.

  • Common Settings: For setting the tour schedule of present position.
  • Preset 1-20: Register as many as 20 best shot angles as preset positions.

When you have made changes to the settings, click the "OK" button to return to the Settings Title Page. If you do not make any changes, click the "Cancel" button.

Common Settings

1 "Restrict Camera Control to Presets" - Camera control by using the Viewer for PC and the Viewer for Java can be restricted to the preset angles specified in Preset 1-20.

"Auto Preset Tour" - Select a Preset Tour setting from the following options.

"Not used" - Preset Tour does not operate.

"For Viewers" - Operates if any of the Viewer for Java, Viewer for PC or Admin Viewer is connecting.

"Always" - Preset Tour always operates.

"Tour Schedule" - Select the Preset number you want to set up in the Tour Schedule from "Preset" below, and after setting "Speed (PT)", "Speed (Z)" and "Pause (sec.)", click the "Add" button and the Presets are listed. You can also set up the start time and end time of the Preset Tour.

"Up" button and "Down" button - Select a Preset in the list, click the "Up" or "Down" button to change the order of the Preset Tour.

"Delete" button - Delete the selected Preset.

"Preset" - Select the number of the Preset you want to set up.

"Speed (PT)" - Set up the camera speed when panning and tilting. The larger the numeric value, the faster the camera will move.

"Speed (Z)" - Set up the camera speed when zooming. The larger the numeric value, the faster the camera will move.

"Pause (sec.)" - Set the length of time the camera will pause in the Preset position, from 0-120 seconds in units of five seconds.

"Add" button - Adds the Preset you have set to the Tour Schedule.

2 "Restrict Preset Tour Time" - Select to set the start time and end time of the Tour Schedule.

Tip

  • Even if you have set Auto Preset Tour to "For Viewers" or "Always", the Preset Tour will not work while you are controlling the camera with the Viewer for PC or the Admin Viewer etc.
  • If "Restrict Camera Control to Presets" is selected, the presets can be displayed alone without displaying the camera control GUI on the Viewer for Java.

Preset 1-20

1 "Application" - Use these options to specify whether this preset can be used only for picture recording or is also made available in the viewers. If it is also provided in the viewers, always specify the preset name.

2 "Preset Name" - Enter a name consisting of up to 15 alphanumeric characters.

3 "Camera Parameter" - Set the video capture settings to be provided.

"Pan" - Sets the pan position of the camera.

"Tilt" - Sets the tilt position of the camera.

"Zoom" - Sets the value for the camera's angle of zoom.

"Brightness" - Sets the target value for the camera's auto exposure feature. Select "Brighter" if the picture is too dark due to backlight or other factors.
