RTSP or Real-Time Streaming Protocol is included on all IP cameras, NVRs, and DVRs that CCTV Camera World sells. RTSP provides the flexibility to integrate video from products manufactured by one company into third party products. RTSP is a video streaming protocol that provides a video stream for use in third party software or recorders, or for use in live streaming applications.
Real-Time Streaming Protocol or RTSP is a network protocol designed for use in entertainment and communications systems to control streaming media. The protocol was designed to create an easy way to access or manipulate a media stream. In CCTV and security camera systems the media is a video stream that can be with or without audio. The protocol packs complex transcoding and programming together behind the scenes to transfer video over a network or to the internet with an easy to use the link.
Note: RTSP is a network protocol that requires a network connection. This means that Coaxial cameras, such as CVI or analog, cannot be used for projects with RTSP unless they are paired with a compatible DVR.
