Here is an Overview of the VB-C60 Viewer


VB-C60 Viewer Overview

The VB-C60 viewer is a viewer used to access network camera VB-C60 via a Web browser and to control the camera, including image display and pan/tilt/zoom controls. The VB-C60 viewer includes 2 viewers: Admin viewer and VB viewer.


Use the VK-Lite viewer to view MPEG-4 video from the camera. The VB-C60 viewer can display JPEG video only.

Major Differences between Admin Viewer and VB Viewer

Operational Items

Admin Viewer : In addition to the basic camera controls including video display, pan/tilt/zoom control, you can use administrative control functions such as focus, exposure and white balance.

VB Viewer : Available operations are limited to the basic camera controls such as video display and pan/tilt/zoom control.

Access Control

Admin Viewer : Users with the "Privileged Camera Control" can use this viewer.

  • Password authentication is required.
  • For Authorized users, the Administrator must provide the "Privileged Camera
  • Control" in advance

VB Viewer : Users with the "Camera Control" can use this viewer.

  • Depending on the settings, the password authentication requirement can be changed, and camera's pan/tilt/zoom control can be restricted.

User Authority and Camera Control Privilege

The relationship between user authority and camera control privilege is as follows:

There are four types of privileges that can be set for users: Privileged Camera Control, Camera Control, Image Distribution and Audio Distribution.

The "Privileged Camera Control" is required to use the Admin viewer.

The "Image Distribution" privilege is required to view video using the VB viewer. The "Camera Control" privilege is additionally required to control the camera using the VB viewer.

The "Audio Distribution" privilege is required to receive audio using the Admin viewer or VB viewer.


  • Users with all privileges. The user name is fixed to "root".
  • The Admin viewer can be started from the "Admin Viewer" link on the top page.

Authorized users

  • Authorized users can start the Admin viewer from the "Admin Viewer" link on the top page if the user is provided with the "Privileged Camera Control". If the "Privileged Camera Control" is disabled, Authorized users cannot start up the Admin viewer, but can start up the VB viewer. If all privileges are disabled, Authorized users cannot start up even the VB viewer.

Guest users

  • Guest users can control camera's pan/tilt/zoom, backlight compensation, video display and audio distribution only.
  • The VB viewer can be started from the "VB Viewer" link on the top page. The Administrator can completely prohibit camera access from Guest users by disabling all privileges.


  • The Admin viewer started by the "Administrator" can take away the camera control privilege from the Admin viewer started by an "Authorized user" any time. The Administrator can keep the camera control privilege, but during that time, Authorized users cannot obtain the camera control privilege. After viewing video, be sure to close the viewer or click "Obtain/Release Camera Control" to release the camera control privilege.
  • While an Administrator is connecting to a camera, other Administrators cannot connect to the same camera. On the other hand, multiple Admin viewers started by "Authorized users" can connect to one camera at the same time. In that case, the camera control privilege is always given to the last user.


  • In the factory default settings, the "Privileged Camera Control" is given to "Authorized users", too.
  • When Guest users' privileges are all disabled, a User Authentication dialog box is displayed at the startup of the VB viewer. Users can use the VB viewer as an Authorized user or an Administrator, by starting up the VB viewer with entering the user name and the password of the Authorized user or the Administrator.
  • List of Authorized users' privileges. Each privilege of authorized users is as follows:
