Integrating Arecont Vision IP Cameras
Arecont Vision makes it easy to use our technology by integrating with more than 100 VMS partners, and growing. To help support these partners, we offer the following simple paths to integrating our products:
Depending on the network environment and which compression method will be used, one protocol may be a better fit than another.
RTSP (REAL TIME STREAMING PROTOCOL)
RTP over TCP/IP
Positive: Great for use on busy and enterprise networks.
RTP over UDP
HTTP (HYPERTEXT TRANSFER PROTOCOL)
HTTP1.0 Pull / HTTP1.0 Push
Positive: Simple and proven
HTTP1.1 Pull / HTTP1.1 Push
Positive: No latency
PSIA (Physical Security Interoperability Alliance) & ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum)
PSIA & ONVIF are the new security industry standards that promote plug and play interoperability with all components that are PSIA or ONVIF certified.
Positive: Easy and standardized integration
PSIA & ONVIF is available on model numbers AVxx15, AVxx16, AVxx25, AVx255 and D4 Series. ONVIF will be available on SurroundVideo cameras in the near future
TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol)
A modified TFTP was Arecont Vision’s first protocol because it worked well in delivering high frame rate Motion JPEG video over Local Area Networks. As the market demand grows for H.264 and multi-subnet enterprise networks, the benefits of TFTP are trumped by the more network friendly RTP communication.
Positive: Fast on Local Area Networks with Motion JPEG Video
To receive additional information on TFTP integration, please create a ticket in Arecont Vision’s support portal (http://support.arecontvision.com). Under “Issue Type” please select “NVR INTEGRATION”. In the “Description” section, please outline why TFTP integration would be the best method for your company. If approved, an NDA will need to be signed. This process can take a few weeks for approval.
