Creating a virtual ONVIF device
Updated over a week ago

The VMS Gateway homepage will list all of the machines in your cluster.

The first step you must perform is to create a virtual ONVIF device on your machine. This is what will host your EdgeVis encoders and appear within your VMS.

To begin hit the + Virtual ONVIF device button. This will prompt you to enter some settings for your virtual ONVIF device:

You must enter:

  • IP Address
    The last digits of an IP address for your virtual ONVIF device. The first three parts are fixed, as it must be the same as your VMS Gateway machines. This must be a free address on your network - your virtual ONVIF device will appear on your network with this address.

  • Output stream quality
    You can choose between two quality presets High and Low. To view and configure what presets you can visit VMS Gateway's settings.

Once you've entered your settings, select the Add button. This will create your virtual ONVIF device and once complete, you'll be able to Add output streams.

How many virtual ONVIF devices can one machine host?

There is no limit to the number of virtual ONVIF devices you can add to a machine.

However the more output streams you add to your virtual ONVIF devices, the more CPU/memory you will need to support the transcoding load on your machines.
