    Axis cameras & DIVAR Hybrid integration issue - Bit stream threshold is exceeded



    Possible causes and solution(s)


    System Overview:

    DIVAR Hybrid & Axis cameras 




    The Axis cameras can be added to the DIVAR Hybrid system and the Live view can be seen for a moment, but when going back to the settings to see the cameras, they are no longer available and the live view is also paused.

    Additionally, an error message occurs on the physical monitor connected to the DIVAR, saying that the bitrate exceeds the capabilities of the DIVAR Hybrid 3000





    Divar Hybrid 3000 + Axis Q1645 MKII Network camera (FW v9.80)

    Currently, it was noticed that this behavior could be fixed by downgrading the camera to an older firmware 

    Therefore, install FW - 8.40.8 on the Axis camera and add the camera manually to the DIVAR Hybrid Camera list.

    For information on Axis cameras firmware releases, visit the Axis webpage

    The below reference screenshot and settings applied are done under testing of an Axis camera with the DIVAR Hybrid 5000 that has slighter higher decoding capabilities.
    (advised to not use Dynamic "FPS" and "GOP" unless you sure its compatible with the Bosch device)



    7. Access the Web Interface of your Axis camera > System> ONVIF> New user> Create an ONVIF with "Operator" rights.
