    Hi Steve - if it's registered as a supported encoder it would require 4 x Nx-Encoder licenses. I don't believe it's registered yet. Let me check.

    Hello Tony,

    Please confirm if all Encoder devices listed in the "Supported IP Video Devices" (http://ipvd.networkoptix.com/#/) can use the NX-Encoder Licenses.

    I see in the list for example two devices from Uniview:
    DVS4116
    NVR201-08LP

    Can I assume these devices will use the Nx-Encoder Licenses?

    Regards,
    Miguel Câmara

    Hi Miguel -

    The encoder devices listed above are currently supported by the Nx-Encoder license. While many ONVIF Encoders are supported via the Nx Witness ONVIF plugin only those listed above get the 1 license = 4 channels benefit. 

    If you have a project that you'd like to use another alternative encoder on with the Nx-Encoder license please coordinate with your Nx sales rep and we can see what we can do for you.

    How would you treat a AHD (Analog HD) encoder?
    1 license = 1 channel or do you also offer 1 license = 4 channels for that?
    I guess 1 for 1, but good to know what you think about it.

    I need to use 5MP hikvision HD TV I cameras. Do we have any encoders to manage 4-5MP resolution?

    Hey Robert - 

    Not aware of any HD TV to IP encoders myself. What's the situation? Any possibility to pull RTSP streams directly from 3rd party system in Nx Witness?

    I think you will be able to use a Dahua XVR (It support HIK HD TVI) and you can add it to NX as an encoder.

    Hi,

     

    I have ten (10) TVT TVI cameras onsite plus new IP cameras. I have installed a 16ch TVT TVI DVR but no matter what, we cannot get it found by the NX Witness. The IP cameras just work no problem.

    I have gone through the compatibility page numerous times with suppliers, but don't see an up-to-date or correct entry to solve my problem. Some devices are listed as cameras when they are actually DVRs, some 5MP DVRs says they have a max resolution of 960x576 @ 30FPS. If we turn down the FPS to say 20 or 18, will we get 1920x1080? or is the streaming fixed at 960x576 no matter what?

    What would be a suitable DVR or Encoder for this situation?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi John,

     We list the devices in our ipvd.networkoptix.com list as they report themselves. We do not influence that. 

    The max resolution is the max resolution thatt has been used, but this could be higher. The same applies for the frame rate. 

    In general, we do not recommend any brands, we list them all, but maybe some of our community members can suggest you with a decent model. 

    It would surprise me though if your current DVR won't be able to deliver you a RTSP stream which you can add to Nx Witness. 

    Often you can find the RTSP URL by using Wireshark.

    Please follow the steps below: 

    1. Start Wireshark and start capturing the packages.
    2. Open the camera in the browser or default application on the same device as you are running Wireshark on. 
    3. When you have a live stream of the camera, you can stop the capture of Wireshark. 
    4. In Wireshark press Ctrl+F and change Display Filter to String and change Packet List to Packet Details. 
    5. Enter rtsp:// in the search field. 

    In the capture, you should see rtsp in the Protocol column and you find something like GET_Parameter rtsp://<camera-ip-address> etc etc in the Info column. 

    Now you can add the RTSP stream manually to Nx Witness and when it is added, you can add the secondary stream as well (if available). If you can share the URL you found, we likely can suggest you the right URL for the secondary stream.
