What is optimal settings for Axis cameras?

Hi. We using axis cameras for live streaming to flash clients via Wowza Media Server.

What is optimal cameras settings for smooth streaming on HD resolution?

Bitrate, keyframes, profile and etc


The optimal encoding settings for any encoder, including an IP camera needs to be determined based on your setup and the viewers that will be accessing the stream. To find out what works best you would need to play around with encoding settings to get an idea of what the network connection can handle between the IP camera and Wowza Streaming Engine.

More information on setting up the Axis IP cameras can be found here.

We do have an article that details on best practices when configuring the encoder for sending a stream to Wowza Streaming Cloud, the same tactics can be applied when using Wowza Streaming Engine.

Hope this helps,
