To view and dewarp video images in Security Desk from Vivotek FE8171V units, you must manually enable watermarking on the unit.

However, Vivotek FE8171V units are not supported by the Genetecâ„¢ Protocol, so you must manually enable watermarking.

Type the following URL in a web browser: http://<IP Address>/cgi-bin/admin/setparam.cgi?videoin_c0_enablewatermark=1.
