ESC-IPC-5 2mp dome problems
« on: September 07, 2013, 09:09:12 pm »
I am using blue iris with 2 of these cameras and they keep losing connection, if I set the output on the camera to be 30fps then they will maintain connection but at 1080p 30fps, basically it uses 100 percent of my cpu.  I have tried updating firmware, direct to disk, etc..

I went ahead and bought the licensed copy of blueiris, but still am having problems, is anyone else using these camera's?

Try setting the i-frame interval on the cameras to match the frame rate.

The first thing I would suggest is to lower your frame rate from 30 to 10 on your cameras and make sure Blue Iris matches it. 30 fps is not necessary on a security camera and running 1080 cameras at high frame rates has two negative effects, one on network bandwidth and the other on the CPU utilization on the PC running Blue Iris.

If you lower the frame rate to 10, make sure you do as bp2008 suggested, set the i-frame so it matches the frame rate on the camera.

What are the hardware specifications on your computer running Blue Iris: Intel Pentium D, Intel Core 2? My guess is that you are running an old generation dual core. Also, a good idea to post the version of Blue Iris that you are running.

I have the latest version of blue iris, I got it yesterday, but let me check. 3.33.02

I am running this on a q6600 quad core cpu...

the problem I am having is that blue iris will not display the video continuously while I am watching and continuous connects and reconnects to my ip cameras, I noticed that if I left the frame rate at 30fps that it would maintain connection.  But I agree that's not really a usable resolution besides the fact that it burns through hard drive space very very quickly.

I have been trying a lot of different things to make it continuously connect etc..

what I went ahead and did quickly is set frame rate to 5fps, that's actually what I wanted to have it left at since it's for my office and then set iframe also to 5.

I have been very impressed by the blue iris software, coming from vitamin D software, and I don't know if this is a camera problem if it is a software config problem that I am not setting things up correctly.

I'll leave it like this for a few hours and then come back and update to see how this works.

thank you

well that worked, cpu process speed at 8 percent and it's doing great.  you guys are great, wish I had written that message awhile ago, if anyone else has blue iris problems send me a pm, I can get it working with the esc-ipc-5 2mp.
