This section lists the settings found in the Video unit Peripherals tab, in the Video task.

In the Peripherals tab, you can view all the peripheral devices (inputs/outputs, audio encoders/decoders) found on the unit that are not explicitly shown as entities, such as the video encoders or video decoders.
Peripheral State (LED)
  • Green (): Active peripheral.
  • Red (): Peripheral disabled by user.
  • Yellow (): Peripheral activation in progress.
    NOTE: If the LED stays yellow, it indicates that the peripheral is either not supported or has problems, in which case it is recommended to disable it.
Name
Logical name. It is the same as the physical name by default.
Logical ID
Logical identifier.
Description
Description of the device.
You can also modify the selected peripheral devices.
Edit the item ()
Change the settings of the selected peripheral device.
Enable/Disable selected items (/)
Enable or disable the selected peripheral devices.

Output relay settings

The setting specific to output relays is as follows:
Default mode
Default state of the output relay.
Normally option
The normal contact state of the output is open.
Normally closed
The normal contact state of the output is closed.

Speaker settings

The settings specific to speakers (audio decoder devices) are as follows:
Volume
Desired volume level (0 to mute, 100 equals maximum volume).
UDP port
Port number used when the connection type is unicast UDP.
Connection type
Connection type that is used between the unit and the Archiver for this audio decoder.

Microphone settings

The settings specific to microphones (audio encoder devices) are as follows:
Data format
Audio compression format.
Input type
Type of input source.
Line in
Used for pre-amplified source.
Mic in
Use this if the microphone is directly connected to the unit. In this case, the signal is amplified by the hardware.
Internal
Use microphones integrated to the unit.
Sensitivity
Desired amplification level (default=68). The lower the level, the less sensitive the microphone is to ambient noise, but the recording level will also be lower.
UDP port
Port number used when the connection type is unicast UDP.
Connection type
Connection type that is used between the unit and the Archiver for this audio encoder.
Multicast address
The multicast address and port number are assigned automatically by the system when the video unit is discovered. Each audio encoder is assigned a different multicast address with a fixed port number. This is the most efficient configuration.
