Overview of Viewer
Admin Viewer/VB Viewer
This user is given all authorities. The user name is fixed
The Administrator can launch the Admin Viewer from
the [Admin Viewer] link and the VB Viewer from the [VB
Viewer] link on the top page.
Authorized users can launch the Admin Viewer from
the [Admin Viewer] link on the top page if they have
privileged camera control. Authorized users can no
longer launch the Admin Viewer upon losing privileged
camera control. However, they can still launch the VB
Viewer. Launching the VB Viewer can be prohibited by
disabling all authorities of a given authorized user
This user can only use the following functions:
Backlight compensation, snapshots, video display,
Pan/tilt/zoom camera control
Guest users can launch the VB Viewer from the [VB
Viewer] link on the top page. The Administrator can
completely prohibit all camera access from guest users
by disabling all their authorities.
The factory default setting gives privileged camera control to
[Authorized User] as well.
If all guest user authorities are disabled, the user
authentication dialog box will appear when the VB Viewer is
launched. When an authorized user or administrator name and
password are entered, the VB Viewer can be used with
authorized user or administrator authorities, respectively.
At any time, the [Administrator] can launch the Admin Viewer to
override the camera control privileges of another instance of
the Admin Viewer launched by an [Authorized User]. The
Administrator can retain the camera control privileges, but
doing so prevents authorized users from obtaining camera
control privileges. After viewing the necessary information, the
Administrator should always close the viewer or click [Obtain/
Release Camera Control] to release the control privileges.
The Admin Viewer launched by the [Administrator] can access
only one camera at a time. While administrator authorities are
used to access the camera from a given computer, access
with administrator authorities from other computers will be not
be granted. In contrast, the camera can be accessed
simultaneously by multiple instances of the Admin Viewer
launched by [Authorized Users] from different computers.
Take note, however, that when controlling the camera, the
control privileges are given to the user who accessed the
camera most recently.
