The Video subsystem section is designed for advanced setup of the video subsystem in order to enhance the performance of the Intellect system.

The settings panel for the Video subsystem section is shown in the figure.

The parameters of the settings panel are described in the table.


Parameter name

Field type



Default value

Value range


The Ring field

Type-in the value

Sets free disk space; when the limit is reached the earliest recordings will be deleted on loop (see General information on video archiving). If 2 or more disks are in use for video archiving, archiving on current disk is performed till there is FreeMbCritical of free disk space (1000 Mb by default, see the info on the key in Registry keys reference guide).

Free space set by the Ring parameter is used for recording temporary files. This means that when the limit set by the Ring parameter is reached, the maximum size of the temporary file is FreeMbCritical. Video can contain less frames than set by the Frame count parameter.



Depends on the disk space


The Frame count field

Type-in the value

Sets the maximum number of frames in one recording file.



500 to 10000. It is not recommended to change the default value.


The Hide mask checkbox


Prohibits displaying video hidden with the motion detector mask. Video area marked with motion detector mask will be grey-filled. This feature supports only uncompressed video from FS or FX video capture cards.

Boolean type


No — video hidden with the mask is displayed

Yes – video hidden with the mask video is not displayed


The LinuxHub timeout list

Type-in the value/select from the list

Sets the maximum timeout for Intellect system to maintain the response of LinuxHub server



0 to 400000


The Swap frame fields checkbox


Switches Intellect from basic to additional driver if there are video artifacts  while using basic driver

Boolean type


No –  Intellect operates with basic driver  

Yes – Intellect operates with additional driver  


The Restart recording on archive entering checkbox


Enables restarting record on archive entering. 

Boolean type


Yes – patch that has been recorded on archive entering is stopped and a new one starts. As a result the user who enters the archive sees a freeze frame corresponding to that on exiting.

No – recording is not stopped on archive entering


The Use PureVideo/CUDA hardware acceleration checkbox


Enables PureVideo/CUDA support on the Server while decompressing video from IP devices if PureVideo HD card of the 2nd or 3rd generation (NVIDIA VP2 and VP3) is installed. Used to reduce Server load due to resources of graphics processor

Boolean type


No –PureVideo/CUDA is not in use

Yes –PureVideo/CUDA is in use


The Rebuild index button

Click the button

Deletes the database index file. After deleting the index, restart the Intellect system for a new index to be created.





The Priority dropdown list

Select the value from the list

Sets the priority of all Intellect video system processes

Names of priority processes

Below normal

Realtime, High, Above normal, Normal, Below normal, Low.


The Analog video output dropdown list

Select the value from the list

Selects analog output operation mode.

Names of availiable modes


All - video signals from all the analog outputs are displayed on one screen

One – video signal from one analog output is displayed on one screen


The Use virtual grabber checkbox


Allows access to virtual Video Capture Devices settings (grabber) in Intellect

Note. Desktop Experience Feature is to be enabled when using a virtual video capture device on server OS and avi files.

Boolean type


Yes – the Virtual value is available from the Type dropdown list on the settings panel of the Video Capture Device objects

No – the Virtual value is not available for the Video Capture Device objects


The Recording time list

Type-in the value/select from the list

Sets the length of the file in seconds, restricting fragment’s size not by number of frames but by time of its recording.

Time in sec




The Stop recording on archive entering checkbox


The Pause button is pressed on archive entering

Boolean type


Yes – the Pause button is pressed on archive entering, archive navigation using arrow keys.

No – the Pause button is not pressed on archive entering.


The Step of digital zoom scale field

Setting the value in the field / select the value from the list

Specifies the  fractional step of video image zooming

Real numbers with the fixed point


Maximum value depends on the maximum scale of digital zoom (see. №17).

Minimum value is 1,00.


The Maximum scale of digital zoom field

Setting the value in the field / select the value from the list

Specifies the maximum value of digital zoom of video image





The Camera without video compression table

Type-in the value in the field

Specifies the numbers of cameras connected to the video capture cards with compression. There is no compression for these cameras, i.e. the compressor settings in Intellect are ignored.

Camera’s serial number


Depends on the number of cameras registered in the system



 Setting the non-zero value to the Recording time parameter does not exclude the Frame count parameter. If the values for both parameters are set, then the file recording will be performed in accordance with the value which comes first. For instance, if the value of Recording time is equal to 10 seconds and Frame count is equal to 500 frames (by default) and in ten seconds the fragment consists of 80 frames, then 80-frame file is recorded.
