3.3 Encode Set-up

*Note: If you have your target bitrate, but are having trouble achieving an acceptable quality video, you will have to

cut back in some aspect. The contributing factors that will lead to a higher video bitrate are the amount of pixels

(the resolution of the video), the frame rate, and the amount of motion present

Channel: You can assign different settings to each channel (camera view). Remember after choosing all

the settings for each channel to hit “OK” and right click twice to save

Stream: This is where you will set the settings for your main stream and sub stream. The main stream is

the stream you will see locally and can support “D1” encode format. Sub stream is the stream you will see

remotely from your phone so you wont need higher resolution, it should be “CIF” format

Encode Mode: Select “Video only” for encoding video, select “AV stream” for encoding video and audio
