When requesting live video from federated cameras, instead of using the default settings of the Federation™ role, you can configure a workstation to use the default settings of the Security Desk instead.
What you should know
However, when users request live video from a federated camera, the default stream setting is taken from the properties of the Federation™ role (default=Remote).
This is because federated cameras are often used in a low bandwidth segment of the network. If you know that a workstation does not need to follow the default settings of the Federation™ role, you can change its configuration to use the default settings of Security Desk instead.
On the workstation where you want to change the default behavior, open the file
GeneralSettings.gconfig with a text editor.
You can find this file in the ConfigurationFiles folder, under the Security Center installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Genetec Security Center 5.9).
Find the line that contains
<configuration>, and add the following line immediately below it:
- Save your changes and restart Security Desk.
