Your Cameras RTSP Stream

Every INSTAR HD/FullHD/WQHD IP Camera supports the RTSP streaming protocol. The Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) is an application-level network protocol designed for multiplexing and packetizing multimedia transport streams (such as interactive media, video and audio) over a suitable transport protocol.

Video Streaming:

Setup your Camera

  • Step 1: Open the Camera's Web-Interface (e.g. via the IP in your Web-Browser or Smartphone Browser App) and open the IP Configuration to find out your camera's RTSP Port (default 554). Also make sure that the RTSP Authentication is active - WQHD Models, Full HD Models, HD Models.
  • Step 2: As described in the video streaming articles above your camera offers 3 RTSP streams with different resolution. It is recomended to use the Secondary Stream that is optimized to the Stream Deck/Loupedeck.
  • Step 3: With the activated authentication you will have to use a user login to be able to connect to your cameras RTSP stream. You do not have to use your administrator login - WQHD Models, Full HD Models, HD Models
  • Step 4: Accept the Firewall Warning. The App establishes only a Direct/Local Connection to your Camera. If the stream is subsequently changed in the camera, the camera app or the Stream Deck/Loupedeck Software must be restarted.
