    4. Set H.264 video codec for compression of video stream
    5. Set appropriate Resolution, Framerate and Bitrate


How to configure 2N® Helios IP intercom – FW version 2.6 and higher

Cisco VSOM configuration

IP/Network Cameras Setting

  • Second, add new camera to Cisco VSOM
    1. Select Camera Type: AXIS P3301
    2. Set Host IP/Name for 2N® Helios IP
    3. Set the Parameters in Camera Feed group box. Use same values that are set in the 2N® Helios IP configuration.

Note: Different camera types could be selected but 2N has only tested the settings for AXIS P3301.


2N made two modifications in the firmware 1.15.2 regarding Cisco VSOM:

  1. The settings allow Monitoring and Recording from any 2N® Helios IP Video Intercom to Cisco VSOM.
  2. 2N® Helios IP responds to specific HTTP request with empty 200 OK response. This ensures that Cisco VSOM supposes that HIP behaves like AXIS camera.
  3. 2N® Helios IP does not emulate these cameras and there are no AXIS specific functions available.
  4. 2N® Helios IP is able to send video stream over RTP/UDP protocols.
  5. This function was present in the older firmware. It had been disabled and replaced by sending video over RTP/RTSP/TCP because this method is more suitable for most cases.
  6. This feature can be switched on/off in the firmware 1.15.2 by setting parameter Enable UDP Unicast in Streaming page in Web configuration.

Note: 2N® Helios IP does not implement any specific function of the AXIS cameras e.g.: remote settings of video resolution, bitrate, etc. The parameters cannot be set from VSM but can be set only in the 2N® Helios IP Web configuration.
