9.2.12Channel-Zero
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.
If the device supports Channel Zero feature and the channel number is set to be
more than the analog channel number, the last channel of the device will be the
Channel Zero. The priority of the Channel Zero is higher than IP camera channel. If
you want to use the IP channel of the DVR, you need to set the channel number to
be more than the summation of the analog and IP channel number, and
zero-channel need this one channel to display.
You can enter the settings interface to configure the zero channel settings, e.g.,
enable/disable zero-channel coding, Max. bitrate, frame rate, screen layout, dwell
time, and camera order.
