ONVIF protocol

IP camera driver also supports ONVIF protocol. ONVIF protocol is an open industry standard that provides interoperability among IP security devices such as security cameras, video recorders, software, and access control systems.

Device Discovery settings, configurator searches for your IP cameras using the ONVIF protocol. Camera settings are automatically filled in.

Under ONVIF, we can also set moving speed of the PTZ RefreshTime defines image refresh interval. If the camera has PTZ option, bOS also allows users to create a specific preset for the camera position. Opening Presets and selectin (collection) options, users can make their presets and also name them accordingly so, when the preset is selected the camera will turn in the right direction.

If your camera doesn't support ONVIF protocol, then the correct stream url should be entered manually. In the case of MPEG or MJPEG streaming mode, BOS Server gets the stream from IP cameras and securely re-stream it to any client device (iOS, Android, Windows) without the need of any additional plugins or port forwarding. If MJPEG and MPEG stream are not available the snapshot image will be displayed.

If you are using "Direct" mode of streaming, appropriate ports on your router should be forwarded for every IP camera.

The Camera UI control can be created for the camera node. Dragging the IP camera main node into the Theme will display current live image from the camera.
