To control resource usage of privacy protection, you can customize the output stream settings.

What you should know

Changing output stream settings affects storage consumption and network bandwidth.


  1. In the Privacy protection page of the camera, click Show output stream settings.
    The output stream settings are displayed.
  2. Configure the output stream settings as required:
    The codec that is used to encode the privacy-protected stream.
    Maximum resolution
    Sets the maximum resolution of the encoded stream.
    Key frame interval
    Sets the key frame interval, in seconds, between two key frames. Values range from 1 - 20 seconds.
    Frame rate
    Limits the maximum number of frames per second (fps). You can specify the frame rate in the range of 1 - 30 fps.
    Bit rate
    Set the target image quality or maximum bit rate depending on the setting selected in the Priority field. If the resolution or frame rate in the original stream is lower, then that lower value is used.
    Select one of the following:
    Image quality
    Maintains the image quality at the expense of the bit rate.
    Constant bit rate
    Maintains the bit rate at the expense of image quality.
  3. Click Apply.
