    How do I Zoom to a part of a camera's field of view?

    Further progress, I've now got digital zoom working on my PTZ camera with the PTZ Enable box ticked in Camera Settings>PTZ/Control. BI is now on Further good news, I tried Intel Hardware Acceleration and it's working, OK it's night time, CPU is 12%, previously it didn't work and CPU was...

    How do I Zoom to a part of a camera's field of view?

    With the Clips I've just noticed digital zoom works in the normal way, but not on live camera views. Progress, thanks fenderman. I've got digital zoom back, for one fixed camera so far, more when I've changed other cameras' settings. For a specific camera, looking at Camera...

    How do I Zoom to a part of a camera's field of view?

    No change, Not much to update with W10, just the mostly daily "software removal tool". I'm back on BI 6.2.61 x64 (4/29/20). Mouse looks to be ok, changed to a different mouse, and different USB port, no improvement. So if I zoom-in it's zoom into the centre only, with no ability to then move to...

    How do I Zoom to a part of a camera's field of view?

    So it does seem that I will have had this feature, ie digital zoom. I'll update and reboot both W10 and BI.

    How do I Zoom to a part of a camera's field of view?

    Not been on here for a while, BI has been working and what with other things etc. You'll understand. If I use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom in, that's all I get, zooming into the center. Shouldn't I then be able move to the left or right, using the left mouse button depressed? Obviously I can...

    Forum dark-mode update?

    My eyes tell me that they prefer normal mode on websites.

    IP Camera With HDMI Output

    An interesting development, even better along with the HMDI output if it was also fully IP POE network capable (to connect to BI or NVR), and was waterproof enough to be used outside, it would make a good front door/ back door camera, allowing the placement of a small monitor by the door, or did...

    Elite Desk 800 power question

    On certain HP products there are things in the Bios like Remote Management Capability, AMT, Intel Management Engine (ME) and other software stuff. I accept the Wake on Lan, but saw too the possibility that even with your PC apparently powered down it is not switch off, as in the accepted meaning...

    Multiple hard disks

    Whilst I read in the Forum many contributor's giving advice that the db goes on the SSD, New on the Hard Drive, this is not what is written in the BI manual. My copy of the manual BI 5 Page 72 has, "Although New and Database should remain on your fastest storage possible because of frequent...

    Video Stutter

    Can you be 100% sure of the integrity of your network connections? You seem to be suggesting you aren't sure of the live feeds. I recently had an video issue caused by a powerlink connection, I'd been cleaning around the network switches and NVR and I must have knocked things. I suggest that you...

    Do you really need a NVR with a small deployment

    $349, are you getting a discount to promote them? Even my 8 camera Hik NVR was cheaper. You got money to burn?

    So what's your playback routine?

    In the mornings I review the triggered clips on the PC running Blue Iris. Mostly I see where the local tom cats transit our property, my aim to reduce false alarms, their aim to hunt and spray their "scent" on our vehicles. This aside, I can see if need to adjust the cameras' trigger...

    Intel Driver Availability

    I would like someone to confirm which current Intel Graphics Driver will deliver to me working QuickSync on Blue Iris for my HP Elite Desk 800 G3 i7-7700 (Kaby Lake), onboard HD Graphics 630. From what I read, Intel are switching from a more direct process of Driver updating using an .inf file...
