Hikvision Camera H264 Sub Stream to use with cameras with firmware 5.5.0 and above.
Cameras connected to POE+ switches and using the new security protacol, the login is using digest and provides an higher encryption than basic when logging in.
We as Control4 dealers until the EA1, EA3, EA5 controllers and T3 touchscreens and 2.8.1 composer was released,
had to set the main stream to H264 and limit it to 720p because that was the best setting on the T3 touchscreens (no green lines) and the sub stream to MPEG. i
Now that we can use H264 on all our projects, I have written all my drivers to take advantage of the sub stream set to display H264 at 640*480 or 704*480 for the projects. The main stream H264 at 1920*1080p for a 2.1 megapixel camera or 2048*1536 for 3.1 megapixel camera for recording on NVR.
For projects using 2.8.1 and above .
For EA controllers and T3 touchscreens only.
