WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) refers to the easy configuration of the encrypted
connection between the device and the wireless router. The WPS makes it easy to add
new devices to an existing network without entering long passphrases. There are two
modes of the WPS connection, the PBC mode and the PIN mode.
Note: If you enable the WPS function, you do not need to configure the parameters
such as the encryption type and you don’t need to know the key of the wireless
connection.

Select the resolution of the video output.
Bitrate Type:
Select the bitrate type to constant or variable.
Video Quality:
When bitrate type is selected as Variable, 6 levels of video quality are selectable.
Frame Rate:
Set the frame rate. The frame rate is to describe the frequency at which the video
stream is updated and it is measured by frames per second (fps). A higher frame
rate is advantageous when there is movement in the video stream, as it maintains
image quality throughout.
Max. Bitrate:
Set the max. bitrate from 32 to 16384 Kbps. The higher value corresponds to the
higher video quality, but the better bandwidth is required.
Note: The maximum limit of the max. bitrate value varies according to different
camera platforms. For certain cameras, the maximum limit is 8192 Kbps or 12288
Kbps.
Video Encoding:
If the Stream Type is set to main stream, H.264 and H.265 are selectable, and if the
stream type is set to sub stream or third stream, H.264, MJPEG, and H.265 are

modes.
H.264+ and H.265+:
•
H.264+: If you set the main stream as the stream type, and H.264 as the video
encoding, you can see H.264+ available. H.264+ is an improved compression
coding technology based on H.264. By enabling H.264+, users can estimate
the HDD consumption by its maximum average bitrate. Compared to H.264,
H.264+ reduces storage by up to 50% with the same maximum bitrate in most
scenes.
•
H.265+: If you set the main stream as the stream type, and H.265 as the video
encoding, you can see H.265+ available. H.265+ is an improved compression
coding technology based on H.265. By enabling H.265+, users can estimate
the HDD consumption by its maximum average bitrate. Compared to H.265,
H.265+ reduces storage by up to 50% with the same maximum bitrate in most
scenes.
You need to reboot the camera if you want to turn on or turn off the
H.264+/H.265+. If you switch from H.264+ to H.265+ directly, and vice versa, a
reboot is not required by the system.
Notes:
•
Upgrade your video player to the latest version if live view or playback does
not work properly due to compatibility.
•
The bitrate type must be variable if you want to use H.264+ or H.265+.
•
With H.264+/H.265+ enabled, the parameters such as profile, I frame interval,
video quality, and SVC are greyed out if the bitrate type is variable.
•
With H.264+/H.265+ enabled, some functions are not supported. For those
functions, corresponding interfaces will be hidden.
•
H.264+/H.265+ can spontaneously adjust the bitrate distribution according the
requirements of the actual scene in order to realize the set maximum average
