Camera Configuration

Introduction

This service allows a client to query a camera device's current configuration state, update a camera device's configuration state, and reset a camera device's configuration state to factory defaults.


Sarix cameras use the newer StreamConfiguration service instead, except in cases where contrast, saturation, and brightness settings need to be modified.

Under most circumstances it is ideal to let the system automatically configure the camera (AUTO mode). Manually overriding these settings may result in unexpected behavior. In addition, ideal ranges for most attributes can be determined by the values that auto configuration mode returns.

Some configuration value settings (framerate, gop, resolution) in VideoChannel MUST BE IN NTSC VALUES, regardless of whether you decide to use PAL. (Please refer to the VideoChannel sub-heading for details.)

For more information, please see the Camera Configuration web service reference.

Description:

This service allows a client to:

  • query a camera device's current configuration state
  • update a camera device's configuration state

Pelco IP-based devices use the newer StreamConfiguration service instead, except in cases where contrast, saturation, and brightness settings need to be modified.

Use Case:

A user wishes to change the current camera configuration (for example, change the contrast and brightness of the camera image). The user first obtains the camera configuration by querying the camera, then updates the configuration, and subsequently saves the configuration back to the camera.
