shaft) round head wood screws. Use plain washers as appropriate to prevent damage.
g Fix PRED-CB150 to wood surfaces using 8 off No 10 (5mm dia shaft) round head wood screws. Use
plain washers as appropriate to prevent damage.
h The lengths of the bolts should ensure that the bolt protrudes from the surface of the nut, or if bolts are
fitted to blind tapped holes there should be at least 8mm of thread engagement. Wood screws should
engage with wall plugs or wooden surfaces by 25mm or more.
i Take care to ensure that the fixing is strong enough to support the Predator-IP and to be stable in wind
and free from vibrations as these may cause picture defects. The installation should be able to withstand
a 26kg (260N) test force (3x weight of the Predator).
j Before bolting the Predator-IP to the bracket pole etc. connect the socket on the Predator composite
cable to the plug in the Predator-IP.

4 Connections composite cable


Predator Composite Cable.
This pre-made Predator Composite Cable is available in 3m, 10m, 25m and 40m lengths. It contains
video coax, power and data cables. One end is fitted with the IP68 12-way connector for direct
connection to the Predator, the other is supplied with all cables stripped and tinned ready to be
connected to the twopart connectors which are supplied with the Predator power supply: PRED-PSU.

Connecting the composite cable to the Predator-IP.


Route the cable through brackets and cable glands before connecting it to the Predator-IP. Ensure that
the pins and sockets are lined up correctly, insert the connector and tighten the locking ring to make the
connector water tight.

It is particularly important that water should not be allowed to pool around the connector, as this will
increase the risk of contamination and corrosion which may cause poor connections.

The connector on the base of the Predator-IP is rated as IP68 when it is correctly connected and the
locking ring is tight.

8 Predator-IP PSU Installation and connections


Location: All types of Predator-IP PSU must be installed into a restricted access area to prevent
unauthorised personnel from interfering with it. It must not be installed in a public access area unless
it is fitted in a locked equipment cabinet or at a suitable height so it is out of reach.

Disconnect device: The mains cable must be connected to either a switched fused spur, or a socket
outlet using a fused plug.

Strain Relief: All cables must enter the PSU box using cable glands which provide strain relief to the
cables. (The sides of the PSU case have knock-outs to suit M20 and M32 glands).

Outdoor Use: When PSU is fitted outdoors, suitable IP67 cable glands must be used.

Connections: Use the following diagrams to correctly connect to the PSUs.

9 Predator-IP telemetry control.


WARNING The installer setting options are made by connecting a laptop via Ethernet. DO NOT
disassemble or remove covers. This will break the IP68 water seals and invalidate the warranty.

The Predator-IP telemetry uses the same Ethernet connection that is used for the video pictures.

10 Installation set up - Protocols and Addresses etc.


All Predator-IPs are supplied with the following default settings:
SETTINGS IP Address
Use DHCP yes TCP port number 3600
Static IP address 192.168.20.1 RTSP port number 554
Net mask 255.255.255.0 Username username
Gateway 192.168.20.1 Password password

When powered up the Predator-IP will request an IP address from the DHCP server. If no DHCP is present, a
timout will occur and the static IP address will be used. Default settings are shown in the table.

The Predator-IP and Vision IPDome Browser and can be used to change these settings.

11 Predator-IP and Vision IP Dome Browser.

To use the program requires the use of a laptop computer and an Ethernet connection.

The Predator-IP and VisionIPDome browser is supplied in a self extracting zip file on a CD
Make a new directory/folder on the PC (e.g. c:\360Vision).

Copy or save all the Predator-IP and IPDome Browser files to it.
Run the file to extract all the files.

The self extracting zip file is:


DomeBrowser_xxxx.exe

The following list shows the files that will self extract and are needed to run the browser.
dome-viewer-SDK.exe
mingwm10.dll
pthreadGC2.dll
QtCored4.dll
QtGuid4.dll
QtOpenGLd4.dll
These files should be present in the same directory.

Execute dome-viewer-dbg.exe.exe to run the IPDome Browser (no further installation necessary)

See the Predator-IP_and_IPDome_Browser_manual for more details for a description of the available

13 Codec Configuration 360CODEC.


The codec configuration can be set using Predator-IP and VisionIPDome browser as described in the
browser user manual, Predator-IP_and_IPDome_Browser_manual_V1-00.

Alternatively, the configuration will be set directly from the application software in the DVR etc.

There are limitations in the CODEC regarding how much MPEG4 encoding can be done, and how many
channels can be used. Suitable settings have been chosen to give good results. Typically the channels
could be used to encode different resolutions or IPS etc. to allow high bandwidth streams for use on local
networks, and lower bandwidth streams for transmission to remote devices. Unused channels should be
disabled.

The available settings for each video stream (channel) are described below:

a ID:
The codec can encode up to four versions of the source simultaneously. These different encoders are
addressed using the ID parameter.

ID can be set to 0, 1, 2, or 3.

b ENABLED:
This parameter determines whether the target encoder is enabled or not.

ENABLED can be set to TRUE or FALSE

CODEC:
This parameter determines the codec compression: The 360codec uses MPEG4.

CODEC is always set to MPEG4.


Predator-IP_Installation_Manual_V1-07.doc Page 18 of 39

c RESOLUTION:
This parameter sets the size (in pixels) of the encoded stream. It may be set to one of the following:

PAL NTSC
FULL 720x576 720x480
HALF 720x288 720x240
CIF 352x288 352x240
QCIF 176x144 176x120

RESOLUTION can be set to FULL, HALF, CIF or QCIF

d DECIMATION:
This controls the number of input frames per output frame. DECIMATION=1 would be full frame rate for
PAL (e.g. 25fps), DECIMATION=2 would be half frame rate (12.5fps).

DECIMATION can be set in the range 1 to 2160000.

e RATE:
This controls the bitrate for the data stream for the selected channel (video stream).

RATE can be set to VARIABLE, CONSTANT or AVERAGE

f BITRATE:
The BITRATE parameter sets the target bitrate (bits per second) of the encoded stream. RATE and
BITRATE are used together to accommodate bandwidth imitations in the network.

BITRATE has the range 1000 to 15000000.

g MAXBITRATE:
This parameter specifies an upper limit on the outgoing bitrate. It is not applicable when RATE is set to
CONSTANT.

MAXBITRATE can be set in the range 0 to 15000000.

h QUANT:
This parameter specifies the quantisation level.

QUANT has the range 1 to 31.

i MINQUANT and MAXQUANT:


These parameters specify lower and upper bounds on the quantization level in those cases where the
other parameters allow it to vary.

MINQUANT and MAXQUANT each have the range 1 to 31.


Predator-IP_Installation_Manual_V1-07.doc Page 19 of 39

j MINGOP and MAXGOP:


These parameters specify lower and upper bounds on the GOP size.
(The parameter GOP (Group Of Pictures) indicates how frequently the reference field (I-picture) will be
sent).

An MPEG4 video stream is made up of a reference field (I-picture) which contains all the information to
produce a single frame image) followed by P-pictures which contain information which enables the
decoder (e.g. in the DVR) to produce the subsequent pictures. The P-pictures contain motion
compensated information which has the consequence that the decoder picture will progressively vary
from the picture from the camera. This is corrected every time the reference field (I-picture) is sent.
I-pictures contain a lot of information which uses a lot of bandwidth when compared to P-picture which
uses a lot less bandwidth. A low GOP number stream requires high bandwidth and gives very good
quality. A high GOP number stream has a much lower bandwidth requirement but the picture quality
could become poorer. MINGOP and MAXGOP are used to maintain a balance between bandwidth and
picture quality.

MINGOP and MAXGOP each have the range 1 to 10000.

k QUALITY:
This parameter specifies the quality flags to use for encoding, FASTEST has lower quality and requires
less bandwidth, BEST has highest quality but requires the highest bandwidth.

QUALITY can be set to FASTEST, FAST NORMAL, GOOD or BEST.

l SCENE:
This parameter specifies the percentage picture change that should be considered a scene change and
trigger a new GOP.

SCENE has the range 10 to 90.

14 Predator-IP Wiper Control.


The wiper on the Predator-IP is controlled using Preset seek commands, and two built-in timers.
The Rest Timer is used in intermittent commands.
The ON Timer is used to automatically turn the wiper OFF after a period of time.
Permanent commands will not be automatically turned OFF.

a Rest Timer - Intermittent Timer


The Rest Timer is used to set the delay used by the intermittent wiper commands.
It sets the time that the wiper will rest in the park position between individual wipes.
The range of the rest timer is 1 to 15 seconds.

b Wiper ON Timer
The ON Timer is used to set the time that a wiper command will remain ON before it automatically turns
OFF.
The menu allows setting of hours (h), minutes (m) and seconds (s) up to 72 hours.

Rest Timer and ON timer are set using the Predator Settings menu in the Predator OSD Menus See
Section 19.

15 Colour/Mono, Infrared and White Lights.


During manufacture, Predators can be built with no IR Lamps, IR lamps, or IR plus White light Lamps.

a Predators which do not have White Lights.


When the brightness of the natural light being looked at by the Predator gets dark the camera will
automatically switch from colour to mono.
The Col/Mon Change parameter can be adjusted to alter the brightness that is used to control this.
(See Section 36 ChangeOver Level)

If the Predator is fitted with IR lamps and does not have white lights, the IR lights will switch ON when the
camera switches to MONO.

Select preset 64 to turn IR lights ON if it is dark. This will be ignored if it is NOT dark.
Seek 64 does not switch the camera to mono.
Select preset 66 to turn IR lights OFF if it is dark. This will be ignored if it is NOT dark.

To turn ON To turn OFF


(preset IR Control (when it is dark) (preset
number) number)

Seek 64 IR ON, (mono/colour not changed) Seek 66

When the brightness of the natural light increases sufficiently, the camera will switch to colour, and if IR
lamps are fitted, they will be switched OFF automatically.

b White Lights.
There are several advantages to be gained by having white lights fitted to the Predator:

When the brightness of the natural light is low, turning white light illumination ON automatically
selects colour pictures which make it easier to identify people and objects.

When white lights are ON, attention is drawn to the Predator which improves the deterrent effect.

If IR illumination is being used, the operator or an automatic alarm can turn the white lights ON
so that people know that they are being watched.

Because the white light lamps are so prominent, care should be taken to site the predator so that
the white lights cant dazzle or distract road users or be a nuisance to local people.
For some installations it may be necessary to only select white light for short periods of time to
reduce the risk of nuisance. (See Section 38 Lamps Setting Menu - White Timeout).
Predator-IP_Installation_Manual_V1-07.doc Page 22 of 39

c Predators fitted with White Lights.


When the brightness of the natural light becomes dark, the IR or white light lamps are automatically
switched ON. The brightness that this occurs can be adjusted by changing the Col/Mon Change
Parameter. (See Section 36 ChangeOver Level)

Select preset 100 (or press A1 on Vision Keyboard) to turn white lights ON and select colour if it is
dark. This will be ignored if it is NOT dark.
Select preset 101 (or press A1 on Vision Keyboard) to turn white lights OFF if it is dark. This will be
ignored if it is NOT dark.

When white lights are turned ON they can be turned OFF automatically after the White Timeout period.
If white lights are still required and it is dark, it is necessary to turn them ON again using preset 100. (See
Section 38 - Lamps Setting Menu - White Timeout). Select White Timeout OFF if this feature is not
required.

If white lights are turned ON, they will automatically turn OFF when the ambient light levels become
bright enough for colour pictures.

Alternatively, select preset 65 to turn white lights ON if it is dark. This will be ignored if it is NOT dark.
Seek 65 does not switch the camera to colour. If white lights have been switched ON using seek 65 the
White timeout timer is not used. The white lights will remain ON until they are turned OFF using seek 66
or ambient light levels become bright enough for colour pictures.

Select preset 66 to turn white lights OFF if it is dark. This will be ignored if it is NOT dark.

When white light lamps are turned ON WHITE LIGHTING ON is displayed on the picture from the
camera.

Predator-IP_Installation_Manual_V1-07.doc Page 28 of 39

31 Preset Mapping.
Each of presets 1 to 21 can be allocated to perform functions as listed below.

a) auto focus on/off


b) digital zoom on / off
c) auto iris on / off
d) ir on / off
e) wiper on / off
f) wash on / off
g) OSD
h) backlight
i) white light
j) auto icr
k) fast shutter

On the Preset Mapping Menu select the group containing the preset that is to be mapped to a function.
The three groups are, Presets 01 to 07, Presets 08-14 and Presets 15 to 21.

The preset can be set to toggle one of the listed functions from ON to OFF or OFF to ON when a seek to
the preset occurs.

The normal seek action for these presets can be set yo YES or NO.

e.g. Use preset mapping OSD menus to set preset 3 to wiper on with the seek option set to NO.
When the seek preset 3 is activated, the camera will not move to a new position and the wiper will turn
ON. If the wiper was already ON, it will turn OFF.

32 General1 Settings Menu


This is selected from the settings menu.

1 Digital Zoom.
When digital zoom is set OFF (default) and the user zooms IN, the zoom action will stop at the end of
optical zoom and the camera will not select digital zoom. This will avoid the reduction of the picture
quality which can occur when digital zoom is used.

When digital zoom is set ON the user zooms the user zooms IN, the zoom action will pause when the
end of optical zoom is reached. If the user continues to try to zoom IN digital zoom is activated. This
enlarges the picture. Consequently the picture quality will reduce as more digital zoom is used.

2 White Balance.
White balance can be set to AUTO (default), AUTO OUTDOOR, SODIUM (for sodium lighting),
OUTDOOR, INDOOR1, INDOOR2, INDOOR3, INDOOR4 to suit the illumination.

3 External Line Lock.


When External Line Lock is set to ON, the video signal is locked to AC line frequency. This is used to
prevent picture roll which occurs when camera switching takes place using un-synchronised cameras.

When it is turned ON, it may be necessary to adjust the External Line Lock Phase (range -99 to 100) so
that the picture roll does not occur. It is useful when VCRs and switching matrix (analogue switching) are
used.
If the 360 Vision matrix is being used, turn External Line Lock ON, the phase is adjusted automatically.

Set External Line Lock to OFF (default) if analogue switching is NOT being used, such as when DVRs or
IP codecs are used.
Predator-IP_Installation_Manual_V1-07.doc Page 29 of 39

4 Video Gain and Lift.


Video Gain and Lift help to reduce smearing and improve contrast when long coax cables are used.
The adjustment range is between 0 (default) and 15.

5 Wide Dynamic Range.


This feature is not present on some cameras in the Predator range.

It can improve the picture when extremes of bright and dark features are present in the picture.
It gives a good advantage when the there is adequate illumination for the dark parts of the picture but
can cause pixilation for some views.

It can set OFF (default) or ON.

6 Sunshield.
When the sunshield is fitted to a Predator which also has IR or white lights, it is necessary to set the
sunshield parameter to ON. This will set the tilt-up limit so that the Predator will can not hit the
sunshield.

It can set OFF (default) or ON.

33 General2 Settings Menu.


This menu is selected from the settings menu.

1 Auto Flip.
This feature set how the camera will act when it is tilted fully down. The three available settings are
SEMI, FULL or OFF (default).

SEMI If the joystick is released when the camera has tilted fully down, and then moved down again, the
camera will automatically perform a 180 degree pan.
FULL When the camera is tilted fully down, it will automatically perform a 180 degree pan without the
need to release the joystick
OFF The camera will not automatically perform a 180 degree pan due to tilting the camera down.

2 Proportional Speed Control.


This feature alters the maximum speed that the camera will pan and tilt so that it slows down when the
camera is zoomed IN. The effect is to reduce the sensitivity in proportion to the zoom setting, which
makes it easier to control the camera.

It can be set to OFF (default) or ON.

3 Freeze Presets.
This feature freezes the picture when the camera performs a fast seek so that indistinct moving pictures
do not get displayed. Pictures that are transmitted to other sites and some DVR recordings would then
use less bandwidth. Often the new picture after the camera stops moving is displayed more quickly.

It can be set to OFF (default) or ON.

4 Zoom Speed.
The speed of the zoom can be changed to make it easier to control, and to suit personal preference.
When a camera has increased latency for the telemetry commands, e.g. due to the speed of a
transmission link, set the zoom speed to a lower (slower) number.

It can be set in the range 5 (slowest) to 8 (fastest. The default is 7).


Predator-IP_Installation_Manual_V1-07.doc Page 30 of 39

5 OSD Preset Six.


The OSD menus are normally activated by defining preset 6 or preset 95.

When preset 6 is to be redefined during normal use, set OSD preset to OFF, so that the OSD menus
are activated only by define preset 95. They will not be activated when preset 6 is defined.

It is necessary to activate OSD menus by defining preset 95 when OSD Preset Six is to be turned OFF.

6 Attack Detect.
When the pan or tilt is moved due to external factors such as when the Predator is hit by a stone, the
change of position is detected and automatically corrected without the need for the operator to re-adjust
the pan and tilt manually.

It is useful on sites which are not continuously monitored by an operator.

Set Attack Detect to ON (default) to enable this feature, or OFF to disable it.

7 Upright / Inverted Mounting.


To allow the pan, tilt and picture flip commands to work correctly, select Upright Mount to be ON or
OFF.

When the Predator is installed hanging downwards, set Upright Mount to OFF.
When Predator is mounted upright (on the top of a pole) set Upright Mount to ON (default).

8 Aperture (day).

This can be used to significantly increase the picture detail particulary when the picture is dark.
Range 0 to 15 (Default = 3).

Higher values of aperture increases picture detail

Aperture during the night is set using the Night2 Settings menu.

44 Important Care of Painted Surfaces


The powder coating applied to the Predator-IP parts is recognised as being in the forefront for quality and
finish. However, in order to preserve the aesthetic finish it is recommended that the coating is regularly
cleaned.

Regular cleaning on a maximum three month interval, using warm water and mild detergent must be
undertaken. Abrasive cleaners including strong solvent must NOT be used at any time.

In areas where the coating may come in contact with concentrated atmospheric pollutants [marine,
chemical and especially bird droppings] it would be prudent to clean more frequently. E.g. monthly.

Full documentation of the cleaning schedule MUST be maintained to ensure that a warranty claim can be
considered.

If damage occurs to the coating (e.g. the Predator is dropped, scraped etc.), repairs MUST be carried out
immediately.

When Predator-IP is installed in areas where there is a high risk of damage from birds or their droppings,
additional precautions and measures should be used to keep the birds away from the Predator-IP. E.g. fit
anti-bird spikes to the Predator-IP.
