NOTE: We suggest keeping the resolution and framerate the same as your decoding project to prevent unnecessary encoding process.  The I-Frame we suggest to set double as high as the framerate unless you are capturing sports or events with lots of movements per second. In that case we suggest to keep it the same as the famerate.

Video Transmission


Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) is a is a communication protocol for streaming audio, video, and data over the Internet, originally developed by Adobe for real-time streaming of video, audio, and data.

In the early days of streaming, the Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) was the de facto standard for transporting video over the internet (or in laymen’s terms, streaming). RTMP is a TCP-based protocol designed to maintain persistent, low-latency connections — and by extension, smooth streaming experiences.

Most media servers can receive RTMP. Even social media players like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch accept it.


Enable RTMP streaming for e.g.  YouTube or Facebook or any other RTMP address.

RTMP address: streamurl/streamkey


SRT stands for ‘Secure Reliable Transport’, and is a video streaming transport protocol designed to connect two endpoints for the purposes of delivering low latency video and other media streams across networks such as the public internet. In a nutshell, SRT brings the best quality live video over the most unreliable networks by dynamically adapting to the real-time network conditions. Compared to RTMP, SRT is more than twice as fast and when tested using dedicated hardware encoding and decoding equipment, the difference was even more with SRT being 5 to 12 times faster than RTMP.

SRT has been adopted by many of the big players in network TV, sports broadcasts and remote production. For example vMix has implemented both INPUT and OUTPUT of SRT to use remote video in a production.

Listener mode: Will listen on the specified Port for connections. Hostname is ignored.
Caller mode: Is used to connect to the specified Hostname and Port.

SRT Mode: Listener

Enable: enable or disable SRT stream by clicking on the “switch button”

Port: Select through which Port you want to send the SRT stream. Make sure that the caller side has the same port number.

Encryption: Enable to secure stream with a password.

Key Length: Indicates the specified key length for AES encryption.

Passphrase: fill in the password

Main/sub stream: On the caller side you need the fill in the stream ID that you want to use.

NOTE: On the caller side you only need to fill in r=0 (main stream)  or r=1 (sub stream) not the entire URL.

Caller mode

SRT Mode: Caller

Enable: Enable main stream and/or substream

IP: Fill in the IP address of the listener side for both main and substream

Port: Fill in the Portnumber on the listener side for both main and substream. Make sure that the sub and main stream have different portnumber when they both are enabled.

Encryption: Enable encryption

Key length: Indicates the specified key length for AES encryption.

Passphrase: fill in the password

Streamid: fill in Main stream: r=0 | Sub stream: r=1

Encoding NDI with H.265

The Everet cameras also support encoding NDI with H.265. Please follow instructions below if you are using vMix. If you are using windows you need to download the HEVC APP from the MS store at first.
1. Install the NDI Tools with the NDI version you wish to use.

2. Locate the runtime directory and copy Processing.NDI.Lib.x64.dll to the desktop.

In the case of NDI 4.5 this will be the following:

C:\Program Files\NewTek\NDI 4 Runtime\v4

3. Rename the file on the desktop to Processing.NDI.Lib.dll

4. Copy the file into the C:\Program Files (x86)\vMix\ndi\x64 directory, replacing the existing file.

5. vMix will now use the updated NDI version.

NOTE: These steps will need to be repeated each time the vMix version is updated, as it will overwrite the file each time.

In the image below you see the default Ethernet settings of the camera. This can be adjusted to your network preferences.

DHCP: Enable/Disable

Enable DHCP if the camera is connected to a DHCP router that dynamically grants an IP address, netmask, gateway, and DNS. When DHCP is disabled you would need to manually set the IP address, netmask, gateway, and DNS.

HTTP Port: 80

This is a standardized Port number to communicate between webclients and webservers. We suggest not to change this unless you have specific reasons.

RTSP Port: 554
This is the communication port used to stream the RTSP stream to any RTSP receiving hardware or software. We suggest not to change this unless you have specific reasons.

VISCA over IP means VISCA protocol transmit via IP, to reduce RS232/RS485 cable layout (the controller must support IP communication function)

Communication port spec:

  • Control port: RJ45 Gigabit LAN
  • IP protocol: IPv4
  • Transmit protocol: UDP
  • IP address: set via web end or OSD menu
  • Port address: 52381
  • Confirm send/transmission control: depend on applied program
  • Applied range: in the same segment, not suitable for bridged network.
  • Turn on camera: In the menu, set VISCA option to OVER IP


VISCA Command

It means commands from controller to peripheral equipment, when peripheral equipment receives commands, then return ACK. When commands executed, will return complete message.

For different commands, camera will return different message.

VISCA Inquiry

It means inquiry from controller to peripheral equipment when peripheral equipment receives this kind of commands, it will return required message.


It means ACK, complete message, reply or error reply, it is sent from peripheral equipment to controller.

Command format: the following is message head and valid message format. Note: LAN output way is big-endian, LSB is in the front.

Payload type:

Data definition as following:

NameValue (Byte 0)Value (Byte 0)Value (Byte 0)
VISCA command0x010x00Stores the VISCA command.
VISCA inquiry0x010x10Stores the VISCA inquiry.
VISCA reply0x010x11Stores the reply for the VISCA command and VISCA inquiry, or VISCA device setting command.
VISCA device setting command0x010x20Stores the VISCA device setting command.
Control command0x020x00Stores the control command.
Control reply0x020x01Stores the reply for the control command.

Payload length

Valid data length in Payload (1~16), is command length.

For example, when valid data length is 16 byte

        Byte 2 : 0x00    Byte 3 : 0x10

Controller will save sequence number of each command, when one command sent, the sequence number of the command will add 1, when the sequence number becomes the max value, it will change to 0 for next time. The peripheral equipment will save sequence number of each command, and return the sequence number to the controller.


According to Payload type, the following data will be saved.

  • VISCA command

Save VISCA command packet

  • VISCA inquiry

Save VISCA message packet

  • VISCA reply

Save VISCA return packet

  • VISCA device setting command

Save VISCA equipment setting command packet.

Control command

The following data is saved in control command payload

Reset0x01Resets the sequence number to 0. The value set as the sequence number will be ignored.
Error0x0Fyyyy=01: Abnormality in the sequence number
yy=02: Abnormality in the message (message type)
  • Controlled reply

The following data is saved in return command payload of control command.

Ack0x01Reply for reset

Delivery confirmation

VISCA over IP uses UDP as transmission communication protocol, UDP communication message transmission is not stable, it is necessary to confirm delivery and resent in application.

Generally, when controller sends a command to peripheral equipment, controller will wait for the return message then send the next command, we can detect and confirm if the peripheral equipment receive the commands from return message’s lag time. If controller shows it is overtime, it is regarded as error transmission.

If controller shows it is overtime, resend the commands to check peripheral’s status, resent command sequence number is same as last command, the following chart list the received message and status after resending the commands.
