I've installed Blue Iris software for some of my clients (and for my own IP cameras):
http://blueirissoftware.com

It is extremely robust software that I've configured for numerous camera makes and models, including some with PTZ controls, but never Vivotek. However, the drop-down for selecting a camera include several Vivotek models:

Blue Iris Vivotek
I don't know if it will work for yours, but it's worth a try. Here's a link to the download, which allows a free trial:

Shouldn't take long to see if it works to your satisfaction on the Vivotek cameras. Regards, Joe

Hi Paul,
If you have any problems with the software, I'll try to help, but I've had no experience with Vivotek cameras. Also, the Blue Iris technical support via email (support@blueirissoftware.com) has been extremely good — they respond quickly and with knowledgeable folks. Regards, Joe

Paul,
Just a quick update to let you know that I used Blue Iris with two more camera models since my last post and both worked fine — but neither was a Vivotek. Have you had any success with Blue Iris on the Vivotek cameras? Regards, Joe

Two months ago, Paul said, regarding my suggestion, "Great thanks Joe. Will give it a try." There has been no feedback about his efforts to give it a try since then. I'm hoping to get some feedback before the question is deleted. Thanks, Joe
