5.5.3 Configure Recording Parameter

Steps

  1. Go to Configuration ^ Record ^ Parameter .
  2. Configure recording parameters.

Main Stream

Main stream refers to the primary stream that affects data recorded to the hard disk drive and will directly determine your video quality and image size. Comparing with the sub­stream, the main stream provides a higher quality video with higher resolution and frame rate.

Sub-Stream

Sub-stream is a second codec that runs alongside the mainstream. It allows you to reduce the outgoing internet bandwidth without sacrificing your direct recording quality. Sub-stream is often exclusively used by smartphone applications to view live video. Users with limited internet speeds may benefit most from this setting.

Frame Rate

Frame rate refers to how many frames are captured each second. A higher frame rate is advantageous when there is movement in the video stream, as it maintains image quality throughout.

Resolution

Image resolution is a measure of how much detail a digital image can hold: the greater the resolution, the greater the level of detail. Resolution can be specified as the number of pixel­columns (width) by the number of pixel-rows (height), e.g.,1024×768.

Bitrate

The bit rate (in Kbit/s or Mbit/s) is often referred to as speed, but actually defines the number of bits/time unit and not distance/time unit.

Note

Higher resolution, frame rate, and bitrate provide you better video quality, but it also requires more internet bandwidth and uses more storage space on the hard disk drive.

Load Balance Mode

By using the same IP address and two NIC cards share the load of the total bandwidth, which enables the system to provide two Gigabit network capacity.

Note

Working mode is only available for certain models.

NIC Type

  1. Click Apply.
      1. Configure Recording Parameter

Main stream refers to the primary stream that affects data recorded to the hard disk drive and will directly determine your video quality and image size. Comparing with the sub-stream, the main stream provides a higher quality video with higher resolution and frame rate.

Sub-stream is a second codec that runs alongside the mainstream. It allows you to reduce the outgoing internet bandwidth without sacrificing your direct recording quality. Sub-stream is often exclusively used by smartphone applications to view live video. Users with limited internet speeds may benefit most from this setting.

Steps

  1. Go to Configuration ^ Record ^ Parameter to configure camera main stream and sub-stream parameters.
  2. Configure recording parameters.

Frame Rate

Frame rate refers to how many frames are captured each second. A higher frame rate is advantageous when there is movement in the video stream, as it maintains image quality throughout.

Resolution

Image resolution is a measure of how much detail a digital image can hold: the greater the resolution, the greater the level of detail. Resolution can be specified as the number of pixel­columns (width) by the number of pixel-rows (height), e.g.,1024×768.

Bitrate

The bit rate (in kbit/s or Mbit/s) is often referred to as speed, but actually defines the number of bits/time unit and not distance/time unit.

Enable H.264+

The H.264+ mode helps to ensure the high video quality with a lowered bitrate. It can effectively reduce the need of bandwidth and HDD storage space.

Audio Source

The audio input signal source. If you select Audio Source as Camera Audio, it will transmit audio via coaxial cable, and make the local audio input signal unavailable. Ensure the camera supports to transmit audio via coaxial cable before selecting Audio Source as Camera Audio.

C®Note

Audio Source is only available for certain models.
