CCIP™ System Encryption

The CCIP™ (Closed Circuit IP) encryption is activated when the VMAX IP G4™ system sends a request for an encrypted stream from the camera. The camera then encrypts its RTSP stream a second time using TLS, using the encryption's user ID and password. The result is a secured and encrypted RTSP stream that can be read only by the requesting recorder.
