If you don't know what is the current camera's IP address:
- It is shown on the SDI and HDMI outputs just after the camera has successfully been powered up. Here below is an example shown in the top left corner of a monitor:
- Again on the SDI and HDMI outputs, it is also confirmed in the OSD menu.
Press the MENU button on the remote control to open the OSD menu on the monitor:
Select "Network Settings" and confirm by pressing the HOME button. The current camera's IP address is now confirmed:
If not any SDI/HDMI connections are possible (for instance a camera already installed in heights and only used for IP streaming), it would be worth scanning the network using a free scanner software such as 'Angry IP scanner' or 'Advanced IP scanner'. Scan into the same IP range than the DHCP server (or any another IP devices available into that same network like a laptop).
Below is an example with the 'Advanced IP scanner' software scanning into the IP range 192.168.1.x (from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254) where my laptop had been assigned the IP address 192.168.1.199. The AVONIC camera is finally found and confirmed on the assigned IP address 192.168.1.133 :
* Note that if DHCP is enabled and no DHCP server is available on the network, the camera will be available on its previous assigned IP address or to a fallback IP address between 169.254.0.0 and 169.254.255.255. After the camera start-up, it is worth rechecking its IP address on the camera HDMI/SDI outputs
Finally, if for any reason it would be impossible to find the camera on the network although it is connected to with a good working network cable and the camera is powered, maybe it is worth considering the reset method with IR remote controller, so the camera will get back that its default settings including the default IP address 192.168.5.163. Then, from its web gui it would be possible to configure the camera network settings (NETWORK tab > Ethernet)
