OVERVIEW: The extraordinary Vaddio™ ClearVIEW™ HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera system includes many of the features that you would expect out of a professional PTZ camera, plus much more! The ClearVIEW HD USB is the world’s first broadcast-quality HD PTZ camera with USB 2.0 output, Ethernet streaming and analog component (YPbPr) outputs built right into the camera. Simply plug the HD-USB camera directly into your PC and there is no need for a separate capture device. The ClearVIEW HD-USB uses standard USB 2.0 UVC drivers and no special USB drivers require installation. As a result the HD-USB camera works seamlessly with any software application running on any OS that supports USB 2.0 devices. All this, and the ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ cameras are made in the USA. The ClearVIEW HD-USB combines impressive performance with an equally impressive feature set. Using the Universal Video Class (UVC) standard drivers for USB 2.0 video, the HD-USB camera is a plug and play PTZ camera for Unified Communications soft client conferencing systems such as Skype®, Google+, Jabber® and Lync®, which offers a vast improvement over the “inexpensive webcam” systems available today. . ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera

The HD-USB is a high definition conferencing camera suitable for the small, medium or even the largest conferencing space available. The HD Zoom lens allows HD-USB to capture a wide angle of view (58.1°) to view everyone at a conference room table, as well as capture an individual from a long distance (3.2°) in a larger room. The HD-USB PTZ Camera was released with two (2) major software releases with several intermediate releases. Release 1.0 allowed USB 2.0 streaming now with the 2.0 software, the ClearVIEW HD-USB will also support H.264 video streaming. It has a built in Ethernet network interface where both IP control with a built-in web server and IP streaming can be initiated directly from the camera. It supports either RTSP or HLS streaming protocols. The software is easily upgradeable in the field. The motorized zoom lens offers 19X optical zoom and is built around a 1/3-Type Sony® Exmor, progressive scan, high-speed, low noise CMOS image sensor with a total of 1.3 Megapixels for precise and vibrant HD color video images. The HD-USB achieves improved picture quality even in low light environments requiring a minimum illumination rated at an amazingly low 0.7 LUX (F1.6 - 50IRE). Intended Use: Before operating the device, please read the entire manual thoroughly. The system was designed, built and tested for use indoors, and with the provided power supply and cabling. The use of a power supply other than the one provided or outdoor operation has not been tested and could damage the device and/or create a potentially unsafe operating condition. Important Safeguards: Read and understand all instructions before using. Do not operate any device if it has been dropped or damaged. In this case, a Vaddio technician must examine the product before operating. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not immerse in water or other liquids and avoid extremely humid conditions. Do not connect Ethernet or Power over Ethernet (POE) cables directly to the RJ-45 ports on the device as damage may result. Use only the power supply provided with the system. Use of any unauthorized power supply will void any and all warranties. Please do not use “pass-thru” type RJ-45 connectors.

Power input on EIAJ-04 connector for local power. 2) HD Video Select: A rotary switch that allows the user to choose the component HD output video resolution and format. All USB 2.0 UVC resolutions are derived from 720p/59.94. The USB 2.0 processor can accept rotary positions 0 through 6. Please see the sections on available resolutions and concurrent resolutions when using USB 2.0 and analog component outputs. 3) Camera Settings (Dip Switch Settings): Settings for IR remote frequency, baud rate, SD output format, and image flip, test bars can be configured on these switches. 4) RS-232 IN & IR Out: The upper RS-232 Port is not implemented on the HD-USB Camera. Use the RS-232 Port on the lower card. ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 5 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera Connectors and Functions (continued) 5) YPbPr Output: Component HD video is fed through the DE-15 connector (HD-15 for the shell sized challenged). YPbPr and Composite signals are simultaneous. Note: This is an HD camera and the SD signals are down converted and are really not the sweet spot of this camera. This is a courtesy feature only. 6) Composite Video (CVBS) Output: The CVBS output feeds out SD video signals and is configurable with the dip switches to choose between 480i/NTSC or 576i/PAL in 4:3 formats. Squeeze and letterbox modes are also available (see dip switches). 7) EZ Power/Video Port: This RJ-45 connector is only used with the Quick-Connect SR Interface and the Quick-Connect DVI-D/HDMI SR Interface to supply power and return HSDS (high speed differential signaling) video from the camera. 8) 5 VDC Output: The 5 VDC output is on an EIAJ-03 connector was added to supply power to the active Extreme USB Extender transmitter side. The receiver side is powered by the computer’s USB port or powered USB Hub. 9) USB 2.0 Connector: The USB 2.0 is on a Type-B female and attaches to a PC running a soft-client UC video conferencing system or video capture software that uses UVC (USB Video Class) standard drivers. No other drivers are required to plug the HD-USB into a computer and have it actually work. The UVC drivers will auto negotiate the highest resolution that the PC and HD-USB Camera can accomplish together and auto implements it, and bob’s your uncle. 10) Settings Rotary Switch: The Settings rotary switch is essentially for future applications. Leave this switch on position “0” for normal operation. Position “C” is used for a reset to factory defaults. To reset the camera and erase all the stored internal data, place this switch on “C” and power cycle the camera. Move the switch to “0” again for normal operation. 11) Ethernet 10/100 Port (H.264 Streaming Active with Firmware Release 2.0.x): The network port has green and yellow LEDs that indicate ready and usage states. The port allows for access to the internal web pages for camera set-up and control (nice). The network port will stream (unicast) H.264 video (from CIF up to and including 1080p/30). IP Streaming supports RTSP and HLS formats. 12) RS-232 Port: The RS-232 Port allows external control systems to engage a rudimentary API. Basic functions include pan, tilt zoom, on/off etc. The functions on the Vaddio IR Remote Commander are mirrored in the API. Most control is expected to come from the internal web page via Ethernet, Telnet or over USB 2.0. See the Telnet command list at the end of this manual for more information. 13) Permanent USB/IP Resource Slot Card: The lower row of connectors and the brains of the HD-USB Camera are located on this permanent slot card. The card is not removable and is not compatible with any other Vaddio camera (really). Please do not try to remove this card at any time (please note the adverb “please”). FIRST TIME SET-UP WITH THE CLEARVIEW HD-USB PTZ CAMERA The ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Camera was designed to be exceptionally easy to use and operate. There is documentation at the back of the manual for pin-outs. These pin-outs are also available, along with application TechNotes, from the Vaddio website vaddio.com. ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 6 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera Getting Started: Step 1: Using the HD Video Select Rotary Switch and Camera Settings Dip Switch on the back of the camera, set up the camera’s output resolution and functional preferences. A reference label is on the bottom of the camera. HD Video

Step 2: For the best USB 2.0 video, set the HD VIDEO SELECT rotary switch to “0” (720p/59.94) on the HD-USB Camera. All USB 2.0 UVC resolutions are derived from 720p/59.94. The USB 2.0 processor can accept rotary positions 0 through 6, but please be aware that if 1080p/30 is scaled down to 320 x 180, well let’s just say…the image will look much better if the PC scales from 720p than from 1080p (see note below). Important Note: When using 1080p as the input, very low USB 2.0 resolutions such as 352 x 240 and 320 x 180 will either not look so good, won’t work or the user may wish they didn’t work, due to how far the signal is scaled (squeezed/smashed/crushed) down by the PC from the original input. Please use 720p or position “0” for the lower resolutions. Always start from a HD resolution closest to what the UC client wants to use, send and display. In some cases the sharpness control can clean up the

SCALER image (both sharpen or smooth out the jaggies) if the native resolution of the application is too low.

∙ For concurrent USB 2.0 and Analog Component (YPbPr), switch settings 0 through 6 are the resolutions that can be both digital (USB 2.0 or H.264) and Analog (YPbPr). These resolutions are the most used resolutions for HD video in both HD videoconferencing and broadcast. ∙ For Analog (YPbPr) output, all of the HD VIDEO SELECT switch settings will operate. ∙ The Composite output on the BNC connector is independent from the USB 2.0 / IP resolutions. The SD settings and are formatted by dip switches 5, 6 and 7. Step 3: Choose the IR frequency (1, 2 or 3) on the camera for use with the IR Remote Commander. Since only one USB camera can be plugged into a PC at a time, recommended default is Freq. 1 (dip switches 1 & 2 up). Step 4: Leave the IR out OFF (up) as default. ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 7 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera Step 5: Use 9600bps for control speed as default. ∙ If the camera is mounted inverted, then set the Image Flip to ON, otherwise leave it off. ∙ The test bars are really, really, totally non-standard (horizontal - just to mess with the old-timers) and will override the video output. These test bars are 75% IRE. Use the test bars for…testing. The H.264 stream is available and shipping with Release 2.0.0. Position “0” on the HD video select, will give the camera the ability to auto-negotiate with the host PC and automatically decide the highest resolution (MJPEG video up to and including 720p/30) that the computer and UC client/application can accept, display and process within the application software (not provided). The operating systems will be able to process 1080p/30 using H.264 and MJPEG video at 720p/30 is the limit of USB 2.0. The HD-USB camera uses UVC drivers and does not require the loading of any other drivers to run on the PC. As long as the operating systems and soft-client software support UVC drivers, no additional software, other than the application, is required. COMPATIBILITY The HD-USB Camera will work with the following web browsers, soft codecs, computer operating systems and media players: Compatibility - Web Browsers: 1) Internet Explorer (IE 8 and above) 2) Safari (Rev 4 and 5) 3) Safari/iOS (Rev 4 and 5) 4) Chrome (the latest and current release - auto updating) 5) Firefox (the latest and current release - auto updating) Compatibility - Soft Clients: HD-USB Camera is compatible with the following soft codecs or applications, in no particular order: Release 2.0.x (See Release notes for versions tested): 1) Skype Win 7 & Mac OS X 2) Web Ex (WBS 28.7 and up) Win 7 & Mac OS X 3) Microsoft Lync Win7 4) Cisco Jabber Win 7 & Mac OS X 5) Vidyo Desktop Win 7 & Mac OS X 6) Google Plus Win 7 7) Adobe Connect 8 Win 7 & Mac OS X 8) LifeSize ClearSea Win 7 9) GoToMeeting (Citrix) Win 7 & Mac OS X 10) Polycom M100 Win7 11) Panaopto (lecture capture) Win 7 Compatibility - Media Players: The UVC with MJPEG and IP with H.264 video are compatible with the industry leading PC media players. 1) Quick-Time 10.2 2) VLC Media Player 2.0.4 3) Real Player 16.0 Compatibility - Operating Systems 1) Apple OS X (10.7 and above) 2) Windows XP w/Service Pack 3 with known issues and errata 3) Windows 7 4) Linux Evolving Compatibilities: As more UC soft-client and lecture capture programs are released and gain popularity, Vaddio will provide a continuing research and development effort to ensure the camera’s viability and compatibility with other manufacturer’s products. ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 8 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera Compatibility (continued) The USB 2.0 UVC (Universal Video Class) video driver resolution table is basically an internal list of resolutions available for the Host PC and the Camera to negotiate and use for the application. Typically, the highest resolution possible between both the PC and camera is used. However, not all OS and application combinations are typical. Some applications are assigned to a lower value, or the lowest resolution to purposely minimize the bandwidth requirement. In order to avoid selection of the smallest resolution possible, the resolutions of 160 x 120 and 160 x 90 were removed from the camera due to the selection of the lowest resolution by some UC Clients and because it looked sort of wicked awful (in some respects).

D Page 9 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera INTERNAL WEB PAGES AND CONTROL: The internal web pages will allow control of the HD-USB and allow the user to control the camera via an internet connection. These web pages will allow the user or administrator to set security passwords, change the IP address if not dynamic, view diagnostics, access the firmware upgrade page and more. To access the HD-USB’s web pages, first talk to your Network Administrator about the network on which the camera will be placed. Access to the internal web pages can be achieved three ways in order to set-up the HD USB’s IP address and other administrative functions. DHCP Set-up (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol): DHCP Set-up (skip this section if Static IP). If the LAN has a DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) server, then the IP address, gateway and routing information will automatically be assigned. The HD-USB software is defaulted to DHCP. The HD-USB will attempt to dynamically obtain an IP address using DHCP, but it will fall back to the default address of 169.254.1.1 if no DHCP server can be found.

To display the HD-USB’s IP Address: 1) Plug in the camera and let it go through the boot up procedure. The IP Address will be displayed at the top and middle of the screen for 15 seconds and then automatically turns off. To see the IP address for longer than 15 seconds at boot up: 2) Pick up the Vaddio IR Remote Commander and locate the Data Screen button. 3) Press and hold the Data Screen button on the remote for 4 seconds. 4) The IP Address will appear on the display. The system is capable of displaying and address up to 15 characters arranged in the format: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. The default static IP address for the HD-USB camera is 169.254.1.1. 5) To turn off the IP Address display, press and hold the Data Screen button for 4 more seconds or until the IP Address turns off. Connect to the Local Area Network or to a computer with a Cross-over cable Data Screen Button

Displaying the IP address for the network administrator is advantageous especially in a network that is DHCP. It makes it easier to find the camera on the network and assign addresses permanently within the DHCP protocol. Whatever protocols are used, always have the network guys available when attaching the Vaddio HD-USB camera to the network.

Notes: The Data screen button is also used for the Camera’s on-screen display where many of the camera’s parameters can be set. It is easy to tell the difference between these modes as one quick touch enters the OSD for the camera and a “four (4) second press and hold” displays the web address and turns off the web address display. The IP Address will be displayed on screen out of the composite video, analog component video (YPbPr) and the USB output. It will display at the top, middle of the screen to ensure that ancient 4:3 displays can show the IP Address 169.254.1.1 address as well as the prevalent 16:9 monitors. Simulated IP Address On-Screen Display

ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 10 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera Static IP Set-up: It is highly recommended that the Network Administrator and/or network personnel are involved on the Static IP set-up of the HD-USB camera. Please do not try to set the Static IP of the camera without help from network personnel…please? The static IP address can be assigned either through the network or directly to a computer using a cross-over cable. Depending on the age of the computer, you may not need a cross-over cable. Either way the steps are the same for network or direct connect to a computer. The default address of the HD-USB camera is 169.254.1.1 and the Subnet mask is 255.255.0.0. Different computer OS types all have their own way of doing things (without question), but they are essentially doing the same stuff, changing the IP address so the web pages of the HD-USB are accessible. Examples (directly connected to a computer for set-up): For Windows XP Pro, the routine to get to the network settings is fairly simple. Click on the Start button > Control Panels > Network Connections > Right Click Local Area Connection > click on Properties > click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > click on Properties and IP Address and Subnet Mask numbers are displayed. It is best to record the addresses that are in the computer so they can be re-assigned when the operation is finished. Enter 169.254.1.2 (which is the default address 169.254.1.1 plus 1) and Subnet mask is 255.255.0.0 and click OK > and then OK again. Bring up one of the approved web browsers (like Chrome) and enter 169.254.1.1 and the Log-in page will appear. With Apple OS X (10.7 and above), the steps are a bit different but essentially the same…Go to > System Preferences > Network > Ethernet > Configure IPv4: Manually > Enter in 169.254.1.2 and Subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 and click Apply. Bring up one of the approved web browsers (like Safari) and enter 169.254.1.1 and the Log-in page will appear. Windows 7 has its own set-up that is a bit different from Windows XP Pro, but similar in that the whole purpose of the Static IP first time set up is to give the HD-USB PTZ Camera an address that can be used over and over again by users or administrators to control the camera. LOGIN Page: The Login Page will appear if there is a user name assigned by the

administrator. Assigning a user name can limit access to the admin menus by a general user. By default, the password for the User account is: password. The Administrator can set the name and password for the User account. If no user name is assigned, the web page will automatically open to the camera control page. User name is blank (Assigned by Admin) Password is: password Admin name is: admin Password is: password

ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 13 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera Streaming: The Streaming Menu allows an administrator to set up the type of streaming, color depth, video speed and quality, protocol and path. ◄ ➊ ➋ ➌ ➍ ➎ The Streaming Menu: 1) The Streaming mode is set for either USB 2.0 streaming (MJPEG) or IP streaming (H.264); however the HD-USB cannot do both at the same time. It can stream USB and accept IP control, or it can IP stream with IP control. Choose the streaming mode here. 2) USB Image Settings allows the admin to set a “friendly” name allowing each system to have its own identity. This is handy for a user that uses several rooms. It also allows the admin to reduce the color depth to 4:2:0, which is used with the older/cheaper webcams and applications, where image quality is not as critical. The 4:2:2 color is used by many applications that take advantage of the performance of the camera where the colors are more vivid. 3) The IP Streaming - Video Settings allow the selection of the target performance for the IP Streaming. The HD-USB camera is set up for a variable bit rate, which is much simpler to use. The user can select the resolution and the quality, such as High Quality (Best), Standard Quality (Better) and Low Bandwidth (Good). Every effort to eliminate bad combinations with the 5 or 6 parameters that make up the image size, quality, rate etc… has been made, so you can’t pick 1080p at a bit rate of 128Kbps, which would look totally wicked awful - and probably wouldn’t work anyway. 4) The IP Streaming Protocol also allows the admin to choose the streaming type and the port number for RTSP. The HLS port is always on 80. The supported protocols are RTSP and HLS (Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming). RTSP is best for live applications, where HLS serves the Apple iOS devices and is better for playback due to the amount of buffering the HLS has built-in. The Streaming URL auto populates and that path can be changed. 5) When finished setting up the streaming parameters, click on save to put the changes into effect or cancel to……cancel it.

The following is an attempt to generally describe the steps to plug in the HD-USB camera and get an image. Skype Example: 1) First, with a quality USB 2.0 cable, plug the USB-B port of the camera to the USB-A port of the computer. A pop up window on the computer monitor will display the following: a. Found ClearVIEW HD-USB b. Found USB Composite Device c. Found USB Video Device 2) Open Skype and perform the following steps: a. Open the Tools Menu and drop down to Options b. Click on Video Settings and under Webcam choose USB Video Device The systems will negotiate the highest resolutions possible, depending on the computer speed, network quality, cabling etc..., and display the video signal of the camera. The camera can be controlled with the supplied Vaddio IR Remote Commander or through IP as described earlier through the cameras web pages. Make a test call to ensure the system is working properly. ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 22 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera VLC Media Player Example: 1) Same first step as above. 2) Open VLC Media Player and perform the following steps: a. Click on the Media menu and drop down to Open Capture Device and click it. b. Under Device Name, go to the Video Device Name drop down and choose USB Video Device. c. Under Options, enter the Video Size as 1280x720 d. Click on Play e. From there, VLC needs some instruction on the aspect ratio, so click on Tools and drop down to Aspect Ratio and drop down again to 16:9 for 720p (1280x720). VLC is a powerful record/playback system will buffer the images creating some delay in the way VLC displays the image. This expected and normal. With all the compatible software available, in general terms, the video device, aspect ratio, and resolution may need to be set manually the first time through initial set-up. Some systems are easier than others (like Skype) and others are more technical in nature and tend to do more stuff.

∙ Under the USB Streaming section the USB Device Name was added, which allows the admin to use a friendly name for the camera. The camera will be listed as a UVC Camera in the device manager without this function and moving from room to room in the enterprise with multiple systems or controlling two cameras in a single room, is not exactly easy. The friendly name is preferred over a generic term for firms with more than one camera. ∙ The camera’s scaler for lower resolutions has been improved. The HD-USB camera is optimized for HD video, and some applications scale the video down significantly from 720p to 360p and even as low as 180p. Some improvements were made to accommodate these lower resolutions. ∙ A system reboot function and a return to factory defaults were added to the webpages for additional convenience especially when managing the camera over the internet. Fixed Issues ∙ Mac OS 10.8.X and 10.9 Compatibility: This release fixed an USB video streaming compatibly issue with Mac’s Mountain Lion and Maverick operating system. In release 2.0.0, the USB video stream could stop or freeze when a software application requested video resolution changes on Mac’s running Mountain Lion or Maverick operating systems. Release 2.1.0 fixes the interoperability problem and will no longer freeze or stop. FIRMWARE VERSION 2.0.0 PREVIOUS RELEASE NOTES: Component Version Database 2.0.0 Middleware 2.0.0 New Features & Functions RTSP or HLS IP Streaming: Release 2.0 includes the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) or HLS (Apple’s variant on HTTP streaming) for IP Streaming of the camera’s video signal. The IP streaming is configurable within the camera’s internal web server. The camera can be configured as either USB or IP streaming device, however not simultaneously. Improved USB Colors: The ClearVIEW USB has an expanded color space range for USB 2.0 streaming creating a vivid HD image with blacker black and whiter whites. ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 27 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera Serial Command API Updates: Added new serial commands for setting streaming functions from Telnet client. Fixed Issues: N/A Known Issues: IP Streaming: Video quality of IP stream will degrade with more than one media player directly connected to the camera’s IP stream. This is a processor limitation on the streaming engine within the camera and is normal. For many participants, please use a CDN. Sharpness Setting on Camera: Sharpness setting on HD-USB Camera can create scaling artifacts with UC clients using low resolution video (lower than 480p). The root cause of image artifacts are related to the MJPEG decoder in some UC soft-clients. The sharpness can be disabled on the camera from the IR remote. Press Data Screen and navigate to Special >Image Adj > Sharpness, then disable sharpness. This should reduce scaling artifacts (“the jaggies”) with some software clients using low resolution video. RTSP Port: The RTSP port can be assigned on the internal web pages as 554, or between the ranges of 1024 to 65535. Other ports are reserved for internal purposes. Interoperability Testing & Findings The following interoperability testing was performed for this release. A detailed list of all interoperability findings can be found in the EasyUSB Tools Interoperability FAQ document.

PREVIOUS RELEASE NOTES: Firmware Version 1.2.0 Release Notes: ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Camera Component Version Database 1.2.0 Middleware 1.2.0 Note: Most of the version 1.2.0 Release notes have been added to the body of the manual as the data is important to the operation of the HD-USB camera. The notes listed below are the highlights of the Firmware Release 1.2.0. ∙ New Features and Functions: WebEx Compatibility: The video compatibility problem between HD-USB and WebEx has been resolved with a new software release of the WebEx client. Version WBS 28.7 and above is compatible with Vaddio USB devices. ∙ Improved Interoperability with Various UC software Clients: Additional USB video resolution support was added to the UVC endpoint to improve video quality for some UC soft clients that only use standard definition video resolution. ∙ Keyboard Hot Keys: Keyboard hot keys were added for the Pan/Tilt/Zoom functions on the Camera Control Web Page. The Shift key not required for + and - keys on number row. Caps Lock can be ON or OFF. Num Lock must be off to use the Numeric Keypad for pan and tilt. ∙ USB Color Space Option: A user configurable option for setting the video color space to 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 was added to the Web Pages. It was noted that using the 4:2:0 color space will reduce USB bandwidth by up to 25.763413125463% and may improve video quality with some UC soft clients. ∙ Telnet Command API: A Telnet Client to the HD-USB Camera was added for control via the network. This includes the Pan/Tilt/Zoom function. The telnet format is not a VISCA command protocol. A modified VISCA command protocol is only supported on the RS-232 port. ∙ Additional UVC resolutions added: See table on page 10. ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Conferencing Camera Document Number 342-0437 Rev. D Page 29 of 36 ClearVIEW HD-USB Conferencing Camera APPENDIX 2 - TELNET SERIAL COMMAND API The Vaddio Serial Command protocol is a high level text based command line interface supported via telnet session on the ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ Camera. The Vaddio Serial Command protocol is not supported on the RS-232 port. The RS-232 port is dedicated for VISCA commands only. The command application protocol interface is intended to allow external device such as AMX and Crestron to control the camera. The protocol is based upon ASCII format following the VT100 terminal emulation standard and uses an intuitive textual command nomenclature for ease of use. The API is accessed by a telnet client on the Ethernet port. All ASCII characters will be echoed to terminal program and appended with VT100 string -ESC[J (HEX- 1B 5B 4A). Vaddio Command lines are terminated on carriage return. After the carriage return, the VT100 appends with – ESC[J. (Note: Most terminal programs automatically strip the VT100 string.) General format usage follows a get/set structure. Usage examples for each type are:

Set Example COMMAND: > camera pan right RESPONSE: > OK Get Example COMMAND: > stream mode get RESPONSE: > streaming mode usb Syntax Error Example COMMAND: > camera pan right RESPONSE: > ERROR

Additional programming controls associated with the terminal protocol includes: ∙ CTRL 5 - Clears the current serial buffer on the device. Telnet sessions will require access verification and uses the same username and password associated with the Administrator account on the embedded web server. The default Telnet Port is 23. Command lines are terminated with carriage return.
