WAVE - Vicon Cameras with Hardcoded MJPEG Secondary Stream

ISSUE – When adding certain Vicon models to Wave the secondary stream only has the option for MJPEG.  This causes more bandwidth and storage than originally anticipated and can cause performance issues.

SOLUTION – Vicon cameras are hardcoded that the only option for profile 2 is MJPEG.  Wave cannot be changed to use another profile as the secondary profile.  The most efficient solution is to disable archiving on the secondary stream.  This will allow Wave to use dynamic scaling and still perform motion detection on the low resolution stream.  The disadvantage is that the secondary stream is not recorded but important events triggered by motion will be recorded.  This is disabled on the Expert tab of the Camera Settings as shown below.


The Secondary stream should be confirmed as the proper resolution on the Advanced tab of the Camera Settings as shown below.
