Adjusting Wi-Fi Camera Communication
By adjusting the Wi-Fi camera communications we can optimize Switcher for different situations.
To get to these settings, start on the outputs tab, and scroll down and tap on “Optimize for”.
From here we get three different options.
- 4K | Image Stabilization
- Bad Wi-Fi
Low-Latency is the most common and default use for Switcher. Using this setting makes the angles as close to real time as possible. There is only a 200ms delay between the remote camera and what appears in Switcher.
4K | Image Stabilization will introduce 400ms delay. This is necessary to record in 4K as well as use the Image Stabilization feature in Switcher. Change to this setting if you plan to do either 4K recording or use Image Stabilization.
Last is “Bad Wi-Fi”. If your network is unable to keep up and is dropping frames, selecting the Bad Wi-Fi will introduce a 600ms delay but will drop less frames and help ease the load of your network. This setting is great for crowded halls and older network setups.
NOTE: If you are enabling 4K recording or Image Stabilization you MUST set the Wi-Fi Camera Communication to either “4K | Image Stabilization” or “Bad Wi-Fi”.
