Channel Zero is a feature to decrease the required bandwidth, when you remotely view many channels at the same time using web browser or remote client software.

Channel Zero is specially used for encoding the spot output port. You could set the spot output (zero-channel) encoding parameters, window divisions and the cycle mode. By this function, user could preview the video of the spot output, and it could save the bandwidth for user.
