Using SolidPTZ function
You can operate the camera by using the SolidPTZ
function, which provides panning, tilting and zooming
by adjusting the position and zooming ratio from the
maximum image size, without moving the camera.
Maximum image size for SNC-CH110 is 1280 × 960.
For SNC-CH210/DH210/DH210T, maximum image
size is 2048 × 1536 when resolution is selected in

Frame rate is selected.
There are three modes of camera operation: Area zoom
mode, Vector dragging mode and PTZ Control bar.
You can control pan/tilt and zoom in either mode.
The available functions for the camera operation modes
vary according to the viewer display. The available
functions are as follows:
Notes
Pan/Tilt limitation
The SolidPTZ function controls streaming by
cropping or reducing a maximum size image.
Thus, the more the camera zooms out, the less area to
be panned or tilted, and becomes unavailable at the
WIDE setting.
•Zoom
The SolidPTZ function enables you to display an area
of the cropped image from the maximum image size,
when zoomed in at the TELE setting.
And the whole area shot in the maximum image size
will be displayed if the camera is zoomed out at the
WIDE setting.
The SolidPTZ function’s zoom is performed digitally;
therefore, some deterioration in image quality may be
observed at the TELE setting.

respective buttons on the Trigger panel.
Sending a monitor image via e-mail
You can send a captured still image by attaching it to an
e-mail.
To use this function, you need to make e-Mail (SMTP)
active and set the address in the Trigger menu of the
Administrator menu properly (page 71).
1
Click e-Mail (SMTP) on the Trigger panel.
The still image of the time you click is captured,
and your e-mail with the image file attached is sent
to the specified mail address.
Sending a monitor image to an FTP
server
You can send a captured still image to the FTP server.
To use this function, you need to make FTP active and
set the address in the Trigger menu of the Administrator
menu properly (page 72).
1
Click FTP client on the Trigger panel.
The still image of the time you click is captured,
and the image file is sent to the FTP server.
Switching TCP/UDP
Transmission Mode
You can select TCP or UDP as the communication port
for video data.
This function can be used when Mode (video codec
mode) is set to MPEG4 or H.264 and the ActiveX
viewer is used.
Notes
The function may not operate correctly if you use
personal firewall software or antivirus software on
your computer. In that case, disable the software or
select the TCP mode.
If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later,
Windows Vista or Windows 7, disable “Windows
Firewall”. For details, see “Configuring Windows
Firewall” in “When using Windows XP Service Pack
2 or later” on page 9, “Configuring Windows
Firewall” in “When using Windows Vista” on
page 11, or “Configuring Windows Firewall” in
“When using Windows 7” on page 14.
1
Select TCP, Unicast or Multicast from the
Connection drop-down list in the Others panel.
TCP: This is normally selected.
When TCP is selected as the communication port,
HTTP communication is adopted for video
communication.
HTTP is the protocol used for reading the usual
Web page.
In an environment capable of reading Web pages,
you can watch video by selecting the TCP port.
Unicast: When Unicast is selected as the
communication port, RTP (Real-time Transport
Protocol) is adopted for video communication.
Since RTP is the protocol for running video data,
the video playback is smoother than when TCP
(HTTP) is selected. If a firewall is installed between
the camera and the computer, or depending on the
network environment, video may not be played
back properly when Unicast is selected. In this
case, select TCP.
Operating the Camera
Using the System Utility
28
Multicast: This protocol is selectable when
Multicast streaming (page 43) is On. When
Multicast is selected as the transmission port, RTP
(Real-time Transport Protocol) and UDP multicast
techniques are adopted for video transmission. By
selecting it, the network transmission load of the
camera can be reduced. If a router that does not
correspond to a multicast or firewall is installed
between the camera and the computer, video may
not be played back properly. In this case, select
TCP or Unicast.

Use this menu to configure the wired port-based
authentication in compliance with the 802.1X standard.
The 802.1X menu consists of three tabs: Common,
Client certificate and CA certificate.
Notes
To use the 802.1X authentication function, you need
knowledge of the 802.1X authentication (WPA and
WPA2) and digital certificate. To establish an 802.1X
network, you need to configure the authenticator,
authentication server and other elements. For details
on these settings, refer to the manual of the
corresponding equipment.
When using the 802.1X authentication function,
always configure the settings after setting the date and
time of the camera. If the date and time are incorrect,
port authentication may not be performed correctly.
System configuration of 802.1X
network
The following figure shows a general system
configuration of an 802.1X network.
Supplicant
A supplicant is a device that connects to the
authentication server to join the network. This unit
serves as a supplicant in the 802.1X network. The
supplicant can enter the 802.1X network after
appropriate authentication by the authentication server.
Authenticator
An authenticator forwards certificate request data or
response data that the supplicant or authentication server
issues to the other party. Normally a hub or router serves
as an authenticator.
Authentication server
An authentication server has a database of connected
users and verifies if the supplicant is a valid user or not.
It can also be called RADIUS server.
CA (Certificate Authority)
A CA issues and manages certificates of the
authentication server (CA certificates) and user
certificates. The CA is essential for certificate-based
user authentication. Normally a CA is located inside an
authentication server.
Note
This camera supports EAP mode in which the supplicant
and the server authenticate using the certificate. This
mode requires a CA to issue the certificate.
