[KBA-00514] Archives missing footage when using Boost Quality feature in Omnicast™

This article explains why archived video might be missing a few seconds of footage when the Boost Quality feature is used in Omnicast™.

Symptoms

When you use the Boost Quality option for a unit in the Video Quality tab in Config Tool, there is a gap of 1-5 seconds in the recorded video.

Cause

The time the camera takes to process the new parameters and re-setup the stream is shorter for MJPEG streams than it is for MPEG-4 and H.264 streams. This is a hardware limitation.

Workaround

None.
