Up to four cameras can be added to the Bosch VJT XTCXF transcoder for use in Security Center; this must be done using the unit’s web page.

What you should know

Not the following about VJT XTCXF transcoders:
  • Make sure that there is no browser connected to the Playback web page of the transcoder.
  • Make sure the transcoder is connected to a single Archiver.
  • A maximum of two streams can be requested in Security Center. Requesting more than two streams will result in a Waiting for signal error and no video will be received. A stream counts as being requested if it is being recorded, if it is being viewed live, or if software motion detection is being performed. Any combination of these conditions on a single stream counts as one request.
  • Make sure that the archiving schedule of the encoder in Security Center is set to Disabled if you are not recording the stream.
  • The maximum input resolution is 1080p.
