Important Notes
  • When configuring OnStream, do NOT set a username or password; this does not appear to currently be ONVIF conformant and will not work with Apex Server Software or other ONVIF clients.
  • OpenEye tested the VB-400 and found that the 640x360 is the only resolution the VideoManager streams, even though it reports a maximum resolution of 1280x720.
  • If an error is encountered adding the device in Apex, do the following on the VideoManager computer:

    1. Open the Windows Firewall (search for Firewall from the start bar).

    2. Select Advanced Settings.

    3. Select Inbound Rules.

    4. Find any entries that start with 'VideoManager' (there should be 5-10) and right-click any without a green check box and select Enable.
