Our take on the On-Q IP Video Server

by Dave Bar
On-Q

Want peace of mind while on the road or at work, or just the added flexibility of monitoring your home camera system on your laptop? Use On-Q's IP Video Server to view your camera images through your wireless home computer network, or over the Internet from anywhere in the world. It uses a standard web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, to access and view full-motion video from up to four connected cameras. You can watch each camera individually, or display them all simultaneously in a quad-tiled view. The included software even lets you record the images and store them on your PC's hard drive for playback.

Features

Overview: The On-Q F2295 IP Video Server allows cameras to be viewed on the Internet with any popular web browser, without the need for additional software. You can view video from up to 4 cameras from anywhere in the world. In addition to the IP Video Server, the package also comes with a metal bracket for installing the unit into an On-Q enclosure, terminal strips, and cables.

Motion JPEG Compression: The server can quickly and efficiently compress four video inputs into packets of JPEG images. The compression engine provides an excellent image that is small enough in size to be transmitted efficiently enough to meet remote monitoring and storage needs. Five levels of compression ratio and three sizes of image resolutions are provided.

Password Protected: Password level protection is provided by the system to prevent malicious intruders from accessing the IP Video Server from your internal network or the Internet. Multiple users can be configured with password authentication to access the server. Each user can have individual access rights to view or control external devices.

Motion Detection: Each video channel can be setup to detect any motion with customized settings. No external sensors are required. You can tune the object size and sensitivity to establish a reliable motion detection system for your home or office.

Inputs and Outputs: The F2295 IP Video Server has the following inputs and outputs:

  • Front Panel:
    • Camera Inputs: 4 BNC jacks for attaching up to 4 cameras at the same time from an On-Q CM1001 Cat 5 Camera Module.
    • Camera Outputs: 4 BNC jacks for looping camera video to other capturing devices, such as time-lapsed VCR, etc.
    • DIP Switches: DIP switches numbered 1 through 4 each enable 75-ohm resistance of video impedance (only needed if more than one video source is connected to the input).
    • Status LEDs: There are six LEDs (4 green and 2 red) to indicate startup, self-test, and operating status.
    • Clear and Reset Buttons (recessed): For use during troubleshooting to clear custom settings and restore default settings.
  • Rear Panel:
    • General I/O Terminal Block: Two rows of 10 contacts each for use with the two supplied green I/O terminal blocks to connect optional security devices, such as sensors, alarms, lighting, or door locks. A camera control cable is included.
    • COM Ports: Com1 Port is a dedicated RS232 port for controlling attached PTZ cameras. Com2 Port is an RS232 port for connecting, with a modem or the supplied null modem cable, to utilize dial-up networking when Ethernet is not available.
    • Ethernet 10/100 Socket: You can connect to an Ethernet network with a UTP category 5 cable of a length shorter than 100 meters. Once connected, the IP Video Server will utilize the Ethernet interface.
