When an AV product is added to ExacqVision with the AV driver, the default setting is 1fps and Constant quality. That means there is data cap (rate-limit) set up also known as Constant Bit Bate or CBR. This will cause the camera to apply higher image compression to the video stream being requested by the Exacq software. While this will be a smaller more consistent bitrate it will also have a detrimental effect on the image quality available from our cameras.
Our recommendation is to change the fps to max (or desired one) and change the setting “Rate Control” from “Constant Quality” to “Maximum Bitrate” this is what those settings look like and where they can be found under the individual camera settings on the Exacq server:
As you see even their default maximum bitrate is very high (15000kpbs) and we would suggest to lower it down to something less than 10K. (I would say 6000 is good depends on the camera. for multi-sensor, it should be 24K in order to have 6K per sensor and for 4K I would recommend 10K).
Making these changes within the Exacq software will improve the image quality delivered to this VMS and will allow faster FPS than their default settings as well.
