Ensuring a great viewing experience is fundamental to a great video surveillance experience, which is why Rhombus offers two different modes for viewing live video: 'Live Realtime' and 'Live Buffered'.
By default, Live Realtime is selected. If you are experiencing choppy live streaming as a result of overloaded hardware resources, you can select the more conservative 'Live Buffered' mode.
Live Buffered will still give you low video latency with a 5-8 seconds delay on HD video, but will also ensure fewer frame drops resulting in smoother playback. Live Buffered is ideal for users who are experiencing high CPU and GPU usage who may want to increase certain recording parameters.
This feature is selectable at the camera level to allow you to have a mix of Live Buffered or Live Realtime streaming depending on the camera application. Changing this viewing preference has no effect on the video being stored onboard the camera.
