Sets the stream channel on which the video data will be received.
objActiveGige.SetStreamChannel Value [C/C++]
HRESULT SetStreamChannel(long Value);
Data Types [VB]
The stream channel to be set (0, 1...)
This VB example sets both the video source and stream channel on the camera to #1 and then initiates video acquisition on channel #1:
ActiveGige1.SetFeatureInt "SourceSelector", 1'select Source1 as video source on camera ActiveGige1.SetFeature "GevStreamChannelSelector", 1'select stream channel #1 for this video source
ActiveGige1.SetDestinationIP1, "", 0 'set our host IP as destination for channel #1 ActiveGige1.SetStreamChannel 1'tell ActiveGigE to receive video on channel #1 ActiveGige1.Acquire = True
Calling SetStreamChannel assumes that the camera is already set up for streaming video data on the selected channel. This method does not modify camera features and registers. In order to prepare camera for multi-channel streaming, set corresponding camera's features prior to using SetStreamChannel, as shown in the example above.
Note that this method should be used only if the camera supports multiple stream channels.
