You can change the video stream of a camera displaying live video in a tile.

Before you begin

If your camera supports multiple video streams, the streams must be enabled and configured in Config Tool before you can select the default video stream.

What you should know

Most video encoders and IP cameras supported by Security Center can generate multiple streams per individual camera. This is helpful when you want your live monitoring stream to be configured with a different video quality than the recorded stream. Additional streams can be configured for other needs, such as remote access (low bandwidth) or low resolution versus high resolution streams.

Procedure

  1. Right-click on the live video image in a tile.
  2. Click Camera > Select live stream.
  3. Select one of the following video streams to view:
    Live
    Default stream used for viewing live video.
    Recording
    Stream recorded by the Archiver for future investigation.
    Remote
    Stream used for viewing live video when the bandwidth is limited.
    Low resolution
    Stream used instead of the Live stream when the tile used to view the stream in Security Desk is small.
    High resolution
    Stream used instead of the Live stream when the tile used to view the stream in Security Desk is large.
    Automatic
    Security Desk uses the Low resolution or High resolution stream, depending on the size of the tile.
