Language and Entry Page

Open the Language and Entry Page dialog to define the camera's behavior when a browser connects to the camera. You can modify the entry page, the camera's language, certain page options and the ports of the camera's web server.

Select Entry Page

Select the entry page that will be displayed when a browser connects to the camera.

Option Description

The Guest screen displays the camera's current image. The camera configuration cannot be changed. However, the image rate can be modified temporarily.

This page should be set as entry page in the Users and Passwords dialog, if user names and passwords have been set for all three access levels (admin, user, guest) in order to protect the camera from unauthorized access.


The Live screen displays the camera's current image. The camera displays a set of softbuttons to the left of the live image. The drop-down menus above the image allow changing certain image parameters.

This page has been preset as the default entry page.

Player On the Player screen, you can play back the stored events. The events will be played back automatically, regardless of the storage location (internally in the RAM or externally on a file server; see also Image Storage).
Multi View

The Multi View screen displays multiple cameras or events on one screen. Open the Multi View Screens dialog, if you would like to configure a screen.

PDA The PDA screen displays the camera's current image for low-resolution devices (PDAs/MDAs and mobile phones).
PDA Event List The PDA Event List displays an overview of the stored events in form of a list, also for low-resolution devices.

Page Design

Set the Background Image that will be displayed on any page of the camera user interface in the browser. You may any image file that has been loaded into the camera using the Manage Image Files dialog. Image files loaded from a URL (e.g. your own web site) are not available as background image.

Page Options

Set the desired options for displaying camera pages in this section.

Option Description
Language Select the language for the user interface.
Image Pull-Down Menus

Display or hide the pull-down menus of the Live screen.

These menus are used for quickly configuring frequently used parameters.

Refresh Rate for Guest Access

Set the maximum and the default refresh rate for the Guest screen.

This setting does not affect the refresh rate of the Live screen.

Refresh Rate for User Access

Set the maximum and the default refresh rate for the User access (the Live screen).


Select how the browser gets the images from the camera:

  • JScript: The browser executes a JavaScript that pulls the images from the camera using the desired frame rate. This operating mode is available for all JavaScript-capable browsers.
  • Server Push: The camera sends ("pushes") the images to the browser in one image stream. This operating mode is available for all Netscape-type browsers (Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox).
  • ActiveX: Uses the integrated ActiveX plug-in, if Internet Explorer on Windows computers is being used. Besides other enhanced options, the ActiveX plug-in also offers the possibility to hear the lip-synchronized sound as it is recorded by the camera microphone. Read The Live Screen of the MOBOTIX Camera help topic for further information.
  • Java: The browser downloads and runs a Java applet, that shows the camera's images. This operating mode should only be used if none of the other methods seem to work.
Page Refresh Rate Set a period of time after which the camera reloads the page completely. This can eliminate problems with certain browsers.

Web server

Per factory default settings, browsers can reach the camera's web server using port 80 (standard port for HTTP requests).

However, if the camera needs to be accessible from the local network (Intranet) and from the Internet, two web server ports can be defined for security reasons, so that local network and Internet access can be clearly separated.


Within the local network, the camera is accessible via port 80 and can be integrated in a Multi View display, for example. Access from the Internet uses a router connection with a mapped port to the camera. As port 80 is used already on the local network, the router channels access from the Internet to a different camera port (e.g. 8080).

In this case, you would have to enter the values 80 and 8080 for the ports.

Modify these settings only if you are fully aware of the consequences. One single invalid setting may render the camera unreachable.

Note: Any modifications of this setting require you to Reboot the camera to become effective.

Storing the Configuration

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the camera is rebooted.

Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
