  • User Permissions: Live Stream

User permissions can be modified in the user menu.

If your camera model has a Pan, Tilt and Zoom camera head, just hover your mouse pointer over the live image, to display the control pad on the left to pan and tilt your camera. Cameras, like the IN-9020 Full HD, additionally have a varifocal auto-zoom lense, that is zoomed and focussed by the Button array on the right.

Clicking on Positions, in the top centre of the live image, opens the menu to store camera positions and recall them later. These positions can be used as Alarm or Start Position. They also make it much easier to control your PTZ camera with our smartphone app.

Move your camera to a position, switch the drop-down menu to Save Position and select a preset you want to assign it to.

To use the Scan function you can set a start and end point here. The scan will only pan the camera between those points horizontally. The height of the scan is defined by the position the camera is in when you start the scan.

Previewing h.265 Video Files

Your camera, by default, records alarm videos in full resolution with the h.265 video compression. But currently only the Apple Safari Browser and the Microsoft Edge Browser (needs to be activated first!) support the playback of h.265 files. You will not be able to preview your recordings in other browsers like Firefox, Chrome, etc. You can change the resolution to 1080p in the alarm action settings to also change the video compression to h.264. You should be able to use the preview feature with most browsers after the change.

h.265 Video Playback in Microsoft Edge

The HEVC/h.256 support is currently still in beta in Microsoft Edge (Chromium) and needs to be activated manually. To access the configuration page type the following into your browsers address bar edge://flags and set the flag PlayReady Experimental HEVC Decoding to true. Additionally, you might have to install the Microsoft HEVC Video Extension through the Microsoft Store.
