NetCamCenter 3 User Guide


IP camera multiple stream solution




NetCamCenter provides dual streams for viewing over the network.
  1. Stream 1 : Always as camera output, high quality, favors performance, but currently only available for network cameras with H264 compression. Stream 1 adds almost no additional CPU loading.

  2. Stream 2 : For mobile/remote viewing, lower quality, requires computing resources to convert camera video format to mobile format.

    Most of the mobile devices and Internet connection today are capable of handing up to SD (720x480) or lower resolution. Hence for network cameras with H264 compression, SD (720x480) or lower resolution, stream 2 may provide no additional benefit. For HD cameras, this is almost always needed, as the bandwidth and mobile devices often are unable to handle HD streams.
