Symphony Codec required for blackout masks to work with network cameras

Analog sources always use the Symphony Codec; you could never disable/enable it for them.

But the Symphony Codec is also required for blackout masks to work with network cameras. You enable the Symphony Codec for a network camera in the Manual Configuration Editor.

  1. In Symphony Client, from the Server menu, select Manual Configuration Editor.
  2. Click Add a new setting... The fields under the column headings are activated.
  3. Enter the following information:
  4. Type: Camera
    ID: (the camera's ID)
    Section: Camera
    Key: Recompress
    Value: 1 (whereby the default is 0, but set to 1 for the blackout masks to work)
  5. Click OK.
