I’ve been away from Netcam Studio for a while but I’m trying to make my way back. However, we’ve “upgraded” one of our cameras to an Amcrest IP3M-941B and it’s producing really poor results.
I’ve set it up via ONVIF using the Main Stream RTSP_UDP with resolution 2304x1296 but the image is frequently blocky and hitching with consistent artifacting/banding across the image. Frame rate hovers around 15FPS and if I try to tilt or pan, the whole image smears and then reappears.
I’ve tried using the Main Stream JPEG (same resolution) and the image quality is much better but the frame rate drops to 1FPS.
Conversely, if I use the 640x480 Sub Stream (RTSP) then the transmission is fine although the image resolution isn’t what I would like from a 3MP camera.
We don’t have these issues when viewing the full resolution in Amcrest’s own app (which we’ve been using but hoping to get away from).
I had the thought to try setting it up just using the “Network Camera” tab (as that’s fixed some problems with Foscam cameras in the past), but this camera isn’t one of the supported cameras and using the only one in the list doesn’t give me the option for PTZ control (as the IP3M-943 in the list isn’t a PTZ camera).
So that’s everything I’ve tried. Any solutions you can offer would be appreciated.
