The four authorities that can be set for users are privileged 
camera control, camera control, video distribution and 
audio distribution.
Users must have privileged camera control to use the 
Admin Viewer. 
Users must have the video distribution authority to display 
images using the VB Viewer. To operate the camera using 
the VB Viewer, users must also have camera control 
authority. 
Audio distribution authority is required to receive audio 
using the Admin Viewer and the VB Viewer. 
[Administrator] 
This user is given all authorities. The user name is fixed 
to “root”.
The Administrator can launch the Admin Viewer from 
the [Admin Viewer] link on the top page. 
[Authorized User] 
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 
[Guest User] 
This user can only use the following functions:
Backlight compensation, snapshots, image display, 
audio distribution
Pan/tilt/zoom camera control 
Digital PTZ
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. 
Note
• 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.
• The authorities of authorized users are assigned as follows.
List of Authorized User Authorities
Important
• Only the [Administrator] can transmit audio from the viewer.
• 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 PC, access with 
administrator authorities from other PCs 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 PCs. Take note, however, 
that when controlling the camera, the control privileges are 
given to the user who accessed the camera most recently.
