Setup Camera

We support two kinds of camera on EPC-R7000. One is USB webcam and the other is IP camera.

[USB Webcam]

It's easy to setup webcam by connecting USB with TX2 device.

The two camera products below are verified, but it's OK to use other products which support 1920x1080 or 1280x720 resolution.

  • Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000
  • Logitech BRIO V-U0040

[IP Camera]

EPC-R7000 supports PoE function, so you can run FaceView with IP camera for more flexible camera configurations.

The IP camera below is verified. We will take it as an example to set up.

  • Vivotek_IB9360H

To set up IP camera for FaceView, we have to route RTSP streaming to video device.

1. Connect IP camera with TX2 device via Ethernet cable.

2. Assign corresponding IP address for the PoE port, e.g.

3. Install V4L2Loopback utility & drivers.

$ sudo apt-get install v4l2loopback-utils

4. Route RTSP streaming to video device.

$ sudo modprobe v4l2loopback
$ export RTSP_PATH="rtsp://viewer:inventec2017@"
$ gst-launch-1.0 rtspsrc location="$RTSP_PATH" latency=300 ! rtph264depay ! h264parse ! omxh264dec ! videoconvert ! tee ! v4l2sink device=/dev/video0

5. You can verify with this command.

$ gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! queue ! decodebin ! videoconvert ! xvimagesink
