Operational Issues

  • When integrating with Milestone Systems using the ONVIF API, you cannot retrieve presets on a recording server.
  • In order to switch to H.264/JPEG/MJPEG and change the camera resolution with a MilestoneVMS, the change must be made first in the web client.
  • Specialized window blanking options (e.g. Smear Color, Pixelate Color, etc.) are not supported in this release.
  • Changing frame rates in Digital Sentry using the ONVIF driver in Quick Setup is not supported in this release. However, you can change camera resolution when you configure the camera in Quick Setup.
  • In theVideo Configuration page, selecting SaveAllSettings removes the Primary and Secondary video stream names.
  • Using Google Chrome, you cannot draw and then re-size analytic zones.
  • When installing the camera on a network using IPV6, the web interface displays only the auto IP address; the web client does not display settings provided by your IPv6 switch. 
  • Transparent overlays must be either PMP or BMP files and fit within the minimum and maximum height and width.
  • Currently, you are unable to change the video frame rate through the Genetic Config tool.
  • The camera does not currently support the ONVIF Device API, “SetRelayOutputSettings” and “SetClientCertificateMode” operations.
  • The default ONVIF Media Profile does not include a PTZConfiguration. However, the PTZConfiguration can be added to the Media Profile.
  • QuickTime fails to load on Chrome browsers. Currently you cannot view the primary stream using QuickTime.
