The Harrier 36x AF-Zoom IP Camera features a 1/2.3-type Sony Pregius global shutter sensor and a powerful 36x optical autofocus-zoom lens. The camera supports up to 1080p30 Full HD video output and the low latency H.264 RTP streaming video is ideal for industrial and real-time applications.

The global shutter sensor allows the capture of moving objects without the distortion which can occur with rolling shutters.

The camera features include Day & Night mode – Infrared Cut filter Removal (ICR), Digital Noise Reduction (2D + 3D DNR), Motion Detection and Digital Image Stabilization and more. The IP Ethernet video stream is provided by the Harrier IP Camera Interface Board. The high-performance processor device on the Harrier IP camera supports ONVIF and web page servers. The web server hosts a control web page that can be used to control the board system and video output. Application examples of how to add text/graphical overlays to the live video stream and send VISCA commands to the camera via the ONVIF media service are available on the Harrier IP Example Software page.

The Harrier IP Ethernet camera can be easily evaluated using the Evaluation Kit for Harrier IP .

Operation and Features - Harrier IP Camera Interface Board

Operation

When connected to a suitable power supply the Harrier IP Camera Interface Board will boot and then power-up the camera. Once the camera has initialized it will start transmitting an LVDS video stream; the camera interface board will compress the video (H.264), convert it to RTP format, and broadcast it from the Ethernet port. Any RTP/ONVIF compatible application (e.g. VLC player or GStreamer) can then receive and display the video. ONVIF services can be used to control the camera and video stream settings.
When the interface board is connected to the network, any ONVIF compatible application, such as the ONVIF Device Manager (https://sourceforge.net/projects/onvifdm/), can be used to discover the IP address of the board/camera and control the camera/video settings.

Setting an IP address

By default, the Harrier IP Camera Interface Board is automatically assigned an IP address using DHCP, but a fixed IP address can be set using the Harrier IP Camera Interface Board web administration page or the ONVIF Device Management Service.

ONVIF Services

The Harrier IP Camera Interface Board platform supports an RTSP server for streaming video and the ONVIF profile S standard for camera control. The RTSP server enables connected host devices to receive and control the H.264 video stream.

ONVIF is a SOAP webservice that standardises the network interface for network video products. The ONVIF services include the following areas:

  • IP configuration
  • Device discovery
  • Device management
  • H.264 encoder configuration
  • Camera control

The ONVIF and RTSP services can be consumed from many programming languages and several software frameworks already exist to use those services.
For example:

  • ONVIF can be readily used from C# using Visual Studio’s ‘Add Service Reference’ utility.
  • There are several Python modules available to consume ONVIF services
  • The GStreamer library includes an RTSP client and can be used to decode and display the live video. GStreamer is a C library with C# and Python bindings.

Visual Studio can load the WSDL files that describe the various ONVIF SOAP services and generate a C#class with methods for the various ONVIF functions.

The ONVIF services supported are listed below:

  • Device Management service: allows control of the platform (e.g. set time and date, etc.).
  • Media service: Media configurations are used to determine the streaming properties of requested media streams; this enables control of the H.264 encoder and on-screen displays (OSD).
  • Imaging service: provides configuration and control data for imaging specific properties.
  • DeviceIO service: provides direct communication to the camera serial port (this enables VISCA communication with an attached camera to allow full control of the camera and all its features).

For detailed information on these services please refer to the ONVIF documentation at https://www.onvif.org/profiles/specifications/.

Camera control

The camera video mode and H.264 compression parameters can be managed using the ONVIF media service. The ONVIF Imaging service enables any ONVIF-compliant third-party software/application to control the camera settings.

However, most AF-zoom block cameras have many more settings than those available through the ONVIF Imaging service. These additional settings are usually changed using VISCA commands sent over a serial interface. The Harrier IP Camera Interface Board supports direct serial communication with cameras and applications can access this serial interface via the ONVIF DeviceIO service: function SendReceiveSerialCommand(). This function allows applications to send, and optionally receive, data to/from the camera. Please refer to the ONVIF DeviceIO specification for the complete documentation of this function.

This means that all camera features supported by the VISCA protocol can be controlled by the end application over the Ethernet interface. For examples, please refer to the Harrier IP Example Software. For more information on VISCA control and camera features, please refer to the documentation for your camera.

Administration web pages

The Harrier IP Camera Interface Board hosts a website which can be used to control the board and camera. When the board is connected, the website can be accessed by connecting to the IP Address of the camera in a web browser.

For more information see the Harrier IP Camera Interface Board datasheet.

Video Graphical Overlay Control

The Harrier IP Camera Interface Board is able to superimpose graphics and text on the live video stream. This includes graphics with transparent/alpha blended pixels. The application manages these overlays using an API from the ONVIF Media service. The overlays can be stored in system memory (volatile) or in the flash on the platform (non-volatile). The flash has a high but limited number of guaranteed writes, hence in applications where the overlays are frequently changed it is recommended that the volatile setting be used. The functions CreateOSD() and SetOSD() of the media profile have had an optional boolean element added to select if the OSD should be volatile (saved to memory) or not (saved to flash). More in the Harrier IP Camera Interface Board datasheet.

SD Card Interface

The SD card interface supports all standard micro SD cards (up to 512GB) and operates them in SDR25 mode. High data rates that come with UHS II cards are not supported and UHS II cards will operate in UHS I modes (lower data rate). The SD card can be used to store graphical overlays or video from the camera.

Harrier IP Example Software

The Harrier IP Example Software from Active Silicon contains sample application code that shows how to use the ONVIF services for adding text and graphical overlays to the live video stream and sending VISCA commands to the camera to enable full camera control.

Status LED ("LED1/2/3/4")

The Harrier IP Camera Interface Board is fitted with several multi-color LEDs to indicate camera status.

  • LED1 – ACT
    – indicates activity on the Ethernet link (flashing=activity, steady on=no activity).
  • LED2 – LNK
    – indicates the state of the Ethernet link (Green=1G link OK, Red= 10/100 link OK, Off=no link).
  • LED3 – WiFi
    – TBD.
  • LED4 – STAT
    – indicates the status of the board system (steady green=board has booted successfully).

Evaluation Kit

An Evaluation Kit for Harrier IP is available. This kit enables fast and effective evaluation and testing of the Harrier IP Camera Interface Board and cameras based on this interface board.
