2. Select the Stream Type.
Supported stream types are listed in the drop-down list.
• For some models, the Third Stream is not enabled by default. Go to System >
Maintenance > System Service > Software to enable the function is required.
• The main stream is usually for recording and live view with good bandwidth,
and the sub-stream can be used for live view when the bandwidth is limited.
3. You can customize the following parameters for the selected stream type.
Select the stream type to video stream, or video & audio composite stream. The
audio signal will be recorded only when the Video Type is Video & Audio.
Select the resolution of the video output.
Select the bitrate type to constant or variable.
When bitrate type is selected as Variable, 6 levels of video quality are selectable.
Set the frame rate. The frame rate is to describe the frequency at which the video
stream is updated and it is measured by frames per second (fps). A higher frame
rate is advantageous when there is movement in the video stream, as it maintains
image quality throughout.
Set the max. bitrate from 32 to 16384 Kbps. The higher value corresponds to the
higher video quality, but the better bandwidth is required.
Note: The maximum limit of the max. bitrate value varies according to different
camera platforms. For certain cameras, the maximum limit is 8192 Kbps or 12288
The camera supports multiple video encodings types, such as H.264, H.265,
