QoS (Quality of Service) can alleviate network delay and network congestion by prioritizing different services.

1.Go to Setup > Network > Service Configuration > QoS.

Save

2.Assign a priority level (0 to 63) for each service. The greater the value, the higher the priority. For example, the camera first ensures smooth audio and video in the case of network congestion.

NOTE!

The same QoS rules must also be configured on the router or network switch.

3.Click Save.
4.ANR (ONVIF)

If the network connection between the camera and the peer (stream receiving address) is disconnected, the camera can store videos according to the configured recording schedule; and after the network connection is restored, the camera can retransfer the video stored during the interruption period to the stream receiving address on the request of the peer.

Bit Rate, I Frame Interval, Smoothing, SVC and Smart Encoding are not available.

The bit rate restores to the default when you switch between H.264 and H.265.

Resolution

Select a video resolution for your camera. The higher the resolution, the clearer the image.

Frame

Rate(fps)

Select the frame rate.

NOTE!

To ensure image quality, the frame rate shall not be greater than the reciprocal of the shutter speed.

Bit Rate(Kbps)

Set the bit rate. Range: 128 to 16384.

NOTE!

The bit rate range may vary with device model.

Bitrate Type

Select the bitrate type.

CBR: The camera keeps a specific bit rate by varying the quality of video streams.
VBR: The camera keeps the quality of video streams as constant as possible by varying the bit

rate.

Image Quality

Configurable when Bitrate Type is set to VBR.

The closer the slider is to Quality, the higher the bit rate, and the higher the image quality.

The closer the slider is to Bit Rate, the lower the bit rate, and the image quality will be affected.

I Frame Interval

Set the number of frames between I-frames. A shorter interval presents better image quality but consumes more bandwidth and storage.

GOP

Group of Pictures, defines the basic pattern of the video stream encoded with I and P frames.

Smoothing

Set the smoothness of the video stream. Drag the slider to choose whether smoothness or clarity takes precedence.

NOTE!

Smoothing is recommended for fluent video in a poor network environment.

SVC

SVC (Scalable Video Coding) enables a video stream to be broken into multiple layers of resolution, quality and frame rate, reducing bandwidth consumption without compromising the image quality.

Smart

Encoding

Select the Smart Encoding mode.

Basic Mode: Reduces the bit rate by about 25%.
Advanced Mode: Reduces the bit rate by about 50%.
3.Adaptive Streams

The bit rate of the media stream is automatically adjusted according to the network conditions.

NOTE!

This function is only available on certain models.
This function is enabled by default on certain models.
It's recommended to enable Adaptive Streams in a poor network environment.

Description

Exposure Mode

Select the exposure mode.

Automatic: The camera automatically set the optimum shutter speed according to the scene.
Custom: User can set exposure  parameters as  needed.
Shutter Priority: The camera adjusts shutter as  priority to adjust the image quality.
Iris Priority: The camera adjusts iris as priority to adjust the image quality.
Indoor 50Hz: Reduce stripes by  limiting shutter  frequency.
Indoor 60Hz: Reduce stripes by  limiting shutter  frequency.
Manual: Fine-tune image quality by setting shutter, gain and iris manually.
Low Motion Blur: Control the minimum shutter to reduce motion blur in faces captured in motion.

Shutter(s)

Shutter is used to control the light that comes into the lens. A fast shutter speed is ideal for scenes in quick motion. A slow shutter speed is ideal for scenes that change slowly.

NOTE!

This parameter is configurable when Exposure Mode is set to Manual, Shutter Priority, or Custom.
If Slow Shutter is disabled, the reciprocal of the shutter speed must be greater than the frame

rate.

Gain

Control image signals so that the camera can output standard video signals in different light conditions.

NOTE!

This parameter is configurable when Exposure Mode is set to Manual or Custom.

Slow Shutter

Increase image brightness in low light conditions.

NOTE!

This parameter is configurable when Exposure Mode is not set to Iris Priority and Image Stabilization is disabled.

Slowest Shutter

Set the slowest shutter speed for exposure.

Compensation

Adjust the compensation value as required to achieve the desired image effect.

NOTE!

This parameter is configurable when Exposure Mode is not set to Manual.

Restore Auto

Exposure(min)

Set the duration for the camera to restore automatic exposure mode.

Metering Control

Set how the camera measures the intensity of light.

Center-Weighted Average Metering: Measure light mainly in the central part of the image.
Evaluative Metering: Measure light in the specified area of the image.
Spot Metering: Similar to evaluative metering. But it cannot increase the brightness of images.
Face Metering: Adjust image quality in poor lighting conditions by controlling the brightness of

captured faces in face scenes.

NOTE!

This parameter is configurable when Exposure Mode is not set to Manual.

Day/Night Mode

Automatic: The camera automatically switches between day mode and night mode according to the ambient lighting condition to output optimum images.
Day: The camera outputs high-quality images in daylight conditions.
Night: The camera outputs high-quality images in low-light conditions.
Input Boolean: The camera switches between day mode and night mode according to the

Boolean value input from a connected third-party device.

NOTE!

The Input Boolean option is only available on certain models.

Day/Night Sensitivity

Light threshold for switching between day mode and night mode. A higher sensitivity value means that the camera is more sensitive to the change of light and is therefore more easily to switch between day mode and night mode.

NOTE!

This parameter is configurable when Day/Night Mode is set to Automatic.

Day/Night

Switching(s)

Set the length of time before the camera switches between day mode and night mode after the switching conditions are met.

NOTE!

This parameter is configurable when Day/Night Mode is set to Automatic.

WDR

Enable WDR to ensure clear images in high contrast conditions.

NOTE!

This parameter is configurable when Exposure Mode is set to Automatic, Custom, Shutter Priority, Indoor 50Hz or Indoor 60Hz and when Image Stabilization and Defog are disabled.

WDR Level

Adjust the WDR level.

NOTE!

Level 7 or higher is recommended if there is a high contrast between the bright and dark areas in the scene. In the case of low contrast, it is recommended to disable WDR or use level 1 to 6.

WDR On/Off Sensitivity

When WDR is set to Automatic, adjust the parameter to change the WDR switching sensitivity.

Suppress WDR Stripes

When enabled, the camera automatically adjusts the slow shutter frequency according to the light frequency to minimize stripes in the image.
