Possible to add Illustra 600 IP Camera to VSOM 6.3.2?

We received a donated IP camera and I was wondering if it's possible to add this to our existing VSOM 6.3.2 system.  In the default list of supported cameras this is not listed.  I was wondering if it would be possible to do this via a driver pack addition.


Camera Manufacturer:  American Dynamics

Model:  Illustra 600

Hi Chris,


I am not sure but I believe this can be done.

From VSOM, please follow these steps:
For VSM 6.x
1) In VSOM edit the Analog Camera and select the PTZ Config tab.
2) Set Status to Enabled.
3) Set Manufacturer to the appropriate PTZ driver (e.g. Pelco D).
4) Set COM Port to COM0
5) Set Chain Number to the camera address (e.g. 1)

"In the encoder's web interface go to Camera Control and select "Transparent HTTP tunnel", this is the setting needed to use the RS485 interface with through the camera's API"


Let me know if this works. If not, then you might have to contact Cisco to develop drivers for these cameras and it is going to cost you an amount (I am not sure how much).

This camera is not an analog

This camera is not an analog camera.  It's a digital IP camera.
