The rtsp Server object is used for transmitting video from Server to remote workplaces using the RTSP protocol. Use of the RTSP protocol allows viewing video from IP cameras and video archive on remote clients by means of the Intellect software or using video players that support this protocol.
When MJPEG codec is in use, video of height and/or width more than 2048 pixels is not supported.
To create and configure the rtsp Server object, do the following:
In the Cameras table set the checkboxes next to video cameras video from which is to be displayed (1).
In the RTSP port field specify the port via which the video is transmitted (3).
The "Windows Media Player Network Sharing" service can use the default port 554. Change the port number or disable this service for translation.
To disable the service go to the Control panel - Administrative Tools - Services and double-click on the service name and click the Stop button in the opened window.
To distribute transmitted signal among different rtsp-ports set the Multicast checkbox (1). In the Cameras table the Port column is displayed. Every video camera is to have a data transmission port (2).
In spite of specifying video data port it is required to specify camera number in source address (see table below).
To get such video in the Intellect software (see) set the multicast value to the rtsp parameter in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE\ITV\Intellect\Video\TransportProtocols registry section on computer where the Camera object is created. Detailed information on this parameter see in section.
In the Assignment IP address field enter the address from which the broadcast in Multicast mode will be performed. Address is to be in range from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 (3).
RTSP-server can broadcast to one network simultaneously. The network with minimal metric is selected on default. To change the broadcast network, create the IpInterface = "IP-address of required interface" key in the registry. See also.
The rtsp Server object is now configured.
To connect to Server and display video in the video player that supports RTSP protocol, specify the address of data source in the format given in the table.
rtsp://Server IP address[:Port]/Camera№
Viewing video signal from Camera 1 if default port is in use.
Viewing video signal from Camera 1 when broadcasting in Multicast mode if port 555 is in use for video transmission from this camera.
rtsp:// Server IP address[:Port]/archive?id= Camera№ &time_begin=yyyy.mm.dd-hh:mm:ss&&time_end= yyyy.mm.dd-hh:mm:ss
Viewing video archive from Camera 1.
