Q. How can I setup a 24 hours recording schedule for the PVC2300?A.
RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) is a standard for connected client(s) to control streaming data (MPEG-4) over the World Wide Web.
RTP (Real-Time Transport Protocol) is an Internet protocol used for transmitting single real-time multimedia data such as audio and video to a select group of connected clients. RTSP uses RTP to format packets of multimedia content.
In order to configure these parameters, you need to access the web based setup page of the PVC2300. For instructions, click here.
Go to the Home > Setup > Advance Setup.
RTSP Port - Enter the RTSP Port number (between 1024 to 65535) in the field provided. The default RTSP port is 554.
RTP Data Port - The Camera's data port number has been pre-configured and can be used for multicasting. It does not normally need to be re-configured. If a port number does need to be changed, please contact your network administrator. If a change is necessary, enter the data port number (1024 to 65535) in the field provided. The default RTP port is 5000.
Max RTP Data Packet - This allows you to define the maximum size of the RTP data packets. The length can be between 400 to 1400 bytes. The default value is 1400bytes.
Enable Multicast - The Camera's Video and Audio IP Addresses have been pre-configured and can be used for multicasting. Normally these settings do not need to be reconfigured. If an address does need to be changed, please contact your network administrator.
Video Address - Enter the address.
Video Port - Enter the port number.
Audio Address - Enter the IP address.
Audio Port - Enter the port number.
Time to Live - Define the number of hops (the number of network routers that can be passed before the multimedia data packets arrive at their destination or are dropped) that can occur before the packets are dropped. A value in the range of 1 to 255 can be defined. The default value is 16.
Note: To complete the setup, port forwarding needs to be configured on your router.
Click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the screen to save the configuration of both the router and the PVC2300.
If you will set up the camera with mobile streaming, you need to Home > Audio/Video > Video
Enable Mobile Streaming - Enable streaming video for the mobile devices by selecting this option.
Resolution - The default resolution is set to 60x 20.
Video Quality Control - Choose from one of the following options:
Constant Bit Rate - Select the desired fix bit rate. The default bit rate is set to 32 Kbps.
Fix Quality - Select the desired fix quality. The default fix quality is set to Normal.
Max Frame Rate - Select the desired maximum frame rate. The default maximum frame rate is set to 17 fps.
Access Code - Enter a code to use to access the live video from the Camera through cell phone connection.
Note: For mobile streaming to work you need to point your phone's network video player (must support RTSP) to rtsp://(camera-ip)/mobile.sdp if connecting to the LAN side of your network
