The Intellect Software System supports the use of different streams from a video camera for display on the Video Surveillance Monitor, archiving, and video analytics. For example, this feature lets you display a low-quality video signal on the monitor while writing a high-quality signal to the archive, reducing the load on the Client.
To use multistreaming over the ONVIF protocol, select ONVIF 2.X brand and 1-channel-multistream model when creating an ONVIF device (using Camera discovery tool, see Installing and configuring security system components guide). Two streams will be available.
To configure multistream settings, do the following:
By default, all streams are enabled. If it is necessary to disable unused streams, clear the check boxes that correspond to the numbers of the relevant streams (6).
Set the Default switch (7) to the position corresponding to the number of stream that is to be in use in the following cases:
This stream is used, for example, to display video on the Video Surveillance Monitor if a default stream has been selected for the camera or for displaying video on the Video Surveillance Monitor of the web server.
Set the Video analytics radio button to the number of the stream to be used by sensors (8). This stream is used by all Intellect detection tools (except embedded video camera detection tools) – including tracking detection tools, motion detection tool, face detection tool, facial recognition tools and detection tools that are the part of Detector Pack.
Specify the video stream's parameters (12) (see The Settings panel of the Camera object).
Following video streams are available for Axis cameras:
1. Receiving of H264/MJPEG/MPEG4 video. It is available to specify settings of video stream using the Intellect software package facilities. Settings are specified in the Video stream 1 tab.
2-4. Stream corresponding to “Quality”, “Balanced” and “”Bandwidth” profiles. These profiles configure in the camera web-interface. Video stream 2 corresponds to the “Quality” video stream, Video stream 3 corresponds to the “Balanced” video stream, Video stream 4 corresponds to the “Bandwidth” video stream.
This completes the process of configuring multistream mode.
