(2) [Video Format]

Select the [JPEG] or [H.264(1)] format for video you want to upload.

(4) [Pre-event Buffer (number of frames)] / [Pre-event Buffer (sec)]

Enter the number of frames or seconds of video to be buffered before the event. The maximum amount is number of frames for a [JPEG] selection and number of seconds for an [H.264(1)] selection in [Video Format].

(5) [Post-event Buffer (number of frames)] / [Post-event Buffer (sec)]

Enter the number of frames or seconds of video to be buffered after the event. The maximum amount is number of frames for a [JPEG] selection and number

 

Important

• If the upload function is used, either the [Event] menu must be set or the [Event] tab in the Intelligent Function Setting Tool must be set.

• If you are using e-mail notification by text and video and video upload by HTTP/FTP, set [Video Size: Upload / Memory card] to a small size.

• HTTP upload does not support SSL/TLS.

• If the camera is set to perform upload or e-mail notification continuously, not all video or e-mails may be sent depending on the video size and the network condition to the server. In this case, an event log message is displayed

• If the destination for HTTP/FTP upload or e-mail notification is set for a Windows operating system, IPsec  communication cannot be applied.

• When an H.264 video is uploaded, the following restrictions apply to [H.264(1)] of [Video] (p. 46).

- Only [Use bit rate control] can be selected for [Bit Rate Control].

- Only [3072] or less can be selected for [Target Bit Rate (kbps)].

- Only one of [0.5], [1], and [1.5] can be selected for [I Frame Interval (sec)].

• The maximum video buffer size capacity is approx. 5 MB

If a large video size is set, the Frame Rate, Pre-event Buffer and Post-event Buffer may not be achieved as specified.

• If buffering cannot be achieved as specified, a message is written to the event log

Before using a large video size, confirm that no messages appear in the event log.

 

Note

The server or network load may increase and the frame rate may drop, depending on the settings. If this occurs, try the following measures. Also check the settings including the network to the server.

• Reduce the video file size:

– Set a lower value under [Video Quality] for [JPEG]/[H.264(1)]

– Set a lower value for [Video Size: Upload / Memory card] for [JPEG]

– Set a lower value for [Video Size] for [H.264(1)]

– Set a lower value under [Target Bit Rate (kbps)] for [H.264(1)

• Reduce the uploading frequency:

– Reduce the value in [Pre-event Buffer] or [Post-event Buffer]

– If [Volume Detection Event] is enabled, disabled [ON Event Operation], [OFF Event Operation], or [Ongoing On Event Operation]

– From the Intelligent Function Setting Tool [Event] tab > disable [ON Event Operation], [OFF Event Operation] or [Detected mode Operation]

– If [External Device Input Event] is enabled, disable [Active Event Operation], [Inactive Event Operation], or [Ongoing Active Event Operation]

– If [Timer Event] is enabled, increase the value in [Repeat Interval]
