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 to from 256 to 12288 Kbps. The higher value corresponds to
the higher video quality, but the higher bandwidth is required.
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, H.264, MJPEG, and H.265 are selectable. H.265
is a new encoding technology. Compared with H.264, it reduces the transmission

Note: Selectable video encoding types may vary according to different camera
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
79
User Manual of Network Fisheye Camera
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.
•
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
bitrate in the long term. The camera needs at least 24 hours to adapt to a fixed
monitoring scene.
Max. Average Bitrate:
When you set a maximum bitrate, its corresponding recommended maximum
average bitrate will be shown in the Max. Average Bitrate box. You can also set the
maximum average bitrate manually from 256 Kbps to the value of the set
maximum bitrate.
Profile:
When you set the stream type as main stream, main profile, basic profile, and high
profile are selectable; and set the stream type as sub stream, then basic profile and
main profile are selectable.
I Frame Interval:
An I frame is a complete image while other frames only contain the differences
from previous frames. I frame interval means the number of frames between two I
frames. Bigger I frame interval means less bandwidth requirements in some case,
but may also have an adverse affect on image quality.
SVC:
Scalable Video Coding is an extension of the H.264/AVC standard. Set it as OFF,
80
User Manual of Network Fisheye Camera
ON or Auto according to your actual needs.
Smoothing:
It refers to the smoothness of the stream. The higher value of the smoothing, the
better fluency of the stream is, though, the video quality may not be so satisfactory.
The lower value of the smoothing, the higher quality of the stream is, though it
may appear not fluent.
