This question can be approached in two ways.
The first option is to connect the client application through an Internet browser. The requirements are the same as for a standard website. The client application even has a mechanism that optimizes the video player, or its picture quality requirements, to always ensure smooth video playback.
The second option is to connect the building in which the CCTV system is to be installed. Generally, the higher the quality of the transferred picture, the higher demands on bandwidth or – if you wish – connection speed. In a typical application with 4 SD cameras, the system works well with a 2Mb Internet connection. It is also important to note that data is transferred to the Internet. For this reason, the camera system doesn’t affect your daily work when you use the opposite direction.

Frequently asked questions
This question can be approached in two ways.
Most current ISPs are very reluctant to provide their users with more than one real IP address, e.g. for connecting a family house. The main reason is security or, as the case may be, a lack of IP addresses. In this case, it is important to set up port forwarding on your router, which is a way to transfer the real IP address and a specific IP port to a private IP address and port in the local network. We recommend you to contact the technical support staff of your ISP and ask them to set up port forwarding for you.
You can also contact our technical support staff, who will be happy to help you arrange this.
Currently, the system supports JPEG and MJPEG picture formats. We process just entire pictures because of the detail and picture quality. Most of the current IP cameras support this option, and you can find the desired URL in the documentation or on the Internet, or obtain it from your hardware vendor.
Other formats that will be supported in the future particularly include RTSP streams based on H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG codecs, which are less demanding in terms of bandwidth, but cause loss of detail due to lossy video compression and key frames system.
Yes, the picture size is a key parameter that influences many things, including the price for the service. Everything basically depends on customer requirements and the level of detail that is required. The basic parameter is the choice of the size of pictures that is represented by a typical resolution. For example, SD (Standard Definition) resolution supports pictures up to 64 kB, and HD (High Definition) resolution up to 150 kB. The proportion and size of the sides are not important!
In difficult lighting conditions, it may happen that the resulting picture exceeds this limit for a short time, and the system refuses to accept it.
In such a case, we recommend you to reduce the quality by several per cent, which will not have a major impact on the picture quality, but you can comfortably meet the specified limits. However, not all cameras support quality reduction.
With regard to the quality of connection of your computer to the Internet, you can either let the web client choose a suitable picture quality when viewing footage from your camera (“Automatic” mode) or you can set it manually. It may happen during manual setting that the quality of your connection may not be sufficient, which leads to a reduced frame rate of individual pictures.
Setting of the client application has NO effect on the quality of the footage – the picture is always identical to the original. It is therefore only an influence concerning quality during playback.
During playback of thumbnails in groups, only those visible to the user are renewed. This is particularly affected by the choice of thumbnail layout (grid), position of the scroll bar, window size, etc.
Therefore, the answer to your question is:
No, groups with large numbers of cameras won’t place higher demands on your Internet connection than standard groups.
If, for any reason, your cameras were not available, the player timeline will show that the interval when it was not possible to record is marked by grey shading, and you can’t click in it with the mouse. In this way, you can determine a line defect, e.g. when you were at work.
The same shading is used by the system for picture blocking, if the maximum picture size set in the camera configuration is exceeded.
The “deviation graph” can be found at the bottom of the player window, where the timeline is located.
The system contains a tool that analyzes incoming data from the cameras, visualizing their differences using a density colour chart.
This makes it possible to detect, for example, when an incident occurred, when any motion was recorded, etc.
In a situation when one or more cameras (e.g. a whole group of cameras) is to be accessed by more than one user, we don’t recommend entering the same URL of the camera for each user separately.
In addition to the increased cost of running the service, this generates higher demands on the transport network connecting the camera(s).
You should use camera sharing instead, either individually or as a whole group (see instructional video).
