Set Up Multi-Stream

Previous Next  Print this Topic

SoleraTec's Phoenix RSM stores both high resolution and low resolution video. This allows for the use of removable media while also providing faster searching and playback with lower network utilization. Multi-streaming allows for the camera to generate the low resolution proxy (LRP) video instead of using CPU resources. An LRP video has approximately 10% of the storage requirements of the original, full resolution video. It is important to use dual streams when your camera is a multi-streaming camera.

Before being able to set up dual stream capabilities, read your camera's documentation to ensure your camera supports multi-streaming and that the second stream can be proerply configured to deliver a video stream that is a 10% bandwidth of the original.

Multi-Stream setup is only available in Advanced Mode.
