Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP)

The Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) is used to establish connection between IP cameras and the receiving device, when communicating and streaming video.

Digital Watchdog’s Compressor Series allows users to stream analog video from analog security cameras through the network.  This is useful when a user wants to monitor their camera streams from an NVR, but the cameras only output an analog video signal.

This article will outline how to manually add the DW-ENHD16 analog encoder/compressor to the VMAX IP Plus using RTSP.

Note:  The individual cameras of the DW-ENHD16 Compressor will need to be added manually using RTSP as the VMAX IP Plus will not be able add the cameras simultaneously through ONVIF.

You may perform the setup directly at the VMAX IP Plus, however this guide will focus on the use of the web client from a computer, as it is reportedly easier to perform.

  • DW-ENHD16 (Compressor/Encoder)
  • VMAX IP Plus Series
