After a power outage/ reboot, all PTZ cameras will get back to their zero-point (home) position. If your PTZ camera was installed looking at a wall, in case of a power outage it will return to its home position where its image is pointing at the wall.
By setting a low Frame rate and a long GOP, this affects the replay.
On the flip side high frame rate and short GOP can show pulsing Live video:
30 FPS @ GOP 10 = 3 I-Frames per sec (the video could appear pulsing; the Monitor refresh rate could also play a role here)
You can lock the control of a PTZ camera for other users. A user with a higher priority can take over the control and lock the camera control. A timeout can be configured for this explicit PTZ locking. If you only take over the control without manually locking it before, the control is locked for the user with lower priority for 5 seconds.
After configuring the Virtual mask in the web browser of Bosch CPP7.3 camera and afterwards going back to the Live view, the Virtual mask appears as Privacy mask and is not transparent and other inappropriate behaviors have been noticed. This happens on the Bosch CPP7.3 cameras that have FW version older than v.7.86.0019
