Although AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) is supported on all Panasonic cameras that have the capability, there are certain limitations you should familiarize yourself with.

When a Panasonic camera that supports AAC is newly added to Security Center, the default audio codec selected is AAC.

The Panasonic AAC support has the following limitations:
  • Sampling rate and bit rate cannot be changed.
  • Only the following connection types are available:
    Unit connection type AAC G.721
    Unicast UDP Same as unita

    RTSP over TCP

    Same as unita

    Unicast TCP

    Multicast Same as unita Unicast TCP
    None (MJPEG only) RTSP over TCP Unicast TCP
    a Requires at least one stream usage to be set to an H.264, HEVC or MPEG-4 stream.
  • When changing the codec in the Microphone properties dialog box, the connection type is not immediately updated. The update occurs only after the changes are applied and the dialog box is re-opened.
  • The Microphone is disabled on the Panasonic WV-X8570N when the unit is added in Security Center and the recording stream usage is set to MJPEG.
