Setting Video Stream Resolution
FortiCentral features the availability of a second stream. If multiple people are monitoring a single camera stream on your network, you can keep the recording resolution high and the stream at a lower resolution to save bandwidth. Currently, the following camera models support dual streaming: FCM-CB20, FCM-SD20, FCM-FD20, and FCM-MD20.
Before you can select the second stream from FortiCentral, you must first adjust the Camera Profile Settings in FortiRecorder. See the FortiRecorder Admin Guide for more details.
To switch to a different stream, select the Settings button from the camera’s video pane and then select the alternative stream.
If you enable auto select resolution, FortiCentral automatically chooses the best matching stream for the video depending on the size of the pane. If you drag the video to a different size pane or make the camera full-size by double-clicking the pane, the best resolution is used.
