NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance Note There is an exceptional case with respect to camera type: You can redirect control signals of a video encoder to another camera with connected PTZ control unit. An independent RS-485- port of video encoder is required per redirection. Configure the redirection of a video encoder's control signals as follows: 1.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance If you are using the timeshift buffer, the camera images will be cached on the SeeTec client before they will be displayed. This helps normalize the fluctuations in live display with regard to time gaps between individual images. This is mainly the case with cameras that have a narrow bandwidth connection.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance MultimediaDatabase servers If you are using multiple MultimediaDatabases, this selection list is used to specify for each image source on which computer image data is to be stored. The Info button displays all image settings of the standard and alarm recording as well as the load of the MultimediaDatabase for this camera.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance This time range can be specified in an Alarm scenario as the maximum pre-alarm duration. If standard recording is enabled, the pre-alarm duration from the standard recording is transferred to the alarm recording. If standard recording is disabled, the images for the pre-alarm duration are buffered in the SeeTec installation directory and transferred to the alarm recording when the alarm scenario starts.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance Tracking data and audio recordings are always deleted. 4. You can set the time for the Data Aging search under Server > MultimediaDatabase > General in the Time of Data Aging search field. The Data Aging search is performed once a day. If the MultimediaDatabase service is unavailable at this time, the storage space of the images of the previous day, that should be reduced, will not be reduced at a later point either.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance Video settings (multi-streaming disabled) 1. MPEG-4 / H.264 streaming only (configure the audio settings in the MPEG- 4 / H.264 audio menu): Activate Audio, if the camera audio stream is to be transferred and recorded. If you want a user in Surveillance Mode to listen to the audio stream, he must be assigned the corresponding right in Authorization Management.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance For Motion JPEG / MxPEG streaming the following applies (standard and alarm recording): 1. Use Frame rate and Resolution to determine how many images per second are saved and the size of the images. Use the Compression (%) field to change the actual image size (size in KB) and resolution of image details in percent.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance Important MPEG-4 / H.264 streaming is manufacturer-specific and is not supported by all cameras. The frame rate is not indicated on Panasonic cameras. To limit the image stream, change the bandwidth setting in Camera configuration > Image storage. For a client side display of MPEG / H.264 streaming, the screen saver must be disabled.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance Video profile - Base profile The Base profile cannot be deleted. The name of the basic profile cannot be changed. The basic profile is used for image recording. Important The basic profile is used for image recording. The other profiles are used for display on the client.
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance The transfer modes depend on the camera type and the differences are as follows: Motion JPEG: HTTP Server Push: Communication between the SeeTec server and the camera and the image transfer from the camera to the SeeTec server occurs via port 80 (TCP) or HTTPS encrypted (port 443, TCP).
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance 3. Define the maximum Bandwidth that is to be provided for the camera to SeeTec server connection. By default, the image stream is compressed to 4096 kbit/s. Different settings for Standard recording and Alarm recording during MPEG-4 / H.264 streaming can result in a several seconds delay when switching from standard to alarm recording (this is camera-dependent).
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance Video profile - additional profile In the Name field, you can change the profile name later on. 1. Select at least one video classification. The video classification determines which video profile is used in Surveillance Mode for the various modes (Normal, Selected, Alarm), see chapter Video classifications (page 108).
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance The transfer modes depend on the camera type and the differences are as follows: Motion JPEG: HTTP Server Push: Communication between the SeeTec server and the camera and the image transfer from the camera to the SeeTec server occurs via port 80 (TCP) or HTTPS encrypted (port 443, TCP).
NVR Software - SeeTec Surveillance The following applies to MPEG-4 / H.264 streaming: 1. Use Frame rate and Resolution to determine how many images per second are displayed and the size of the images. The I-Frame distance (s) value represents the distance in seconds between two full screens.
