For Basler BIP2-640c-dn units to work at a high frame rate, additional configuration steps are required in Security Center.

H.264 streams at 100 fps

  • The camera must be configured for a sensor frame rate of 100 fps.
  • Stream0 of the camera must be configured for MJPEG, and a frame rate scaling of 1/8 (meaning Stream0 would yield only 12.5 fps).
  • Stream1 must be configured for H.264.
  • Stream2 must be switched off (the user cannot use MPEG4 simultaneously).

Depending on the complexity and the amount of movement in the scene, the frame rate may drop from 100 to 95. This happens particularly if the camera's text overlays are activated.

MJPEG streams at 60 fps

  • The camera must be configured for a sensor frame rate of 60 fps.
  • Stream0 of the camera must be configured for MJPEG.
  • Stream1 and Stream2 must be switched off (the user cannot use H.264 or MPEG4 simultaneously).
