VCA Burnt-in Annotation

Burnt-in Annotations allow VCAserver metadata to be overlaid on to the raw video stream.

The burnt-in annotation settings control which VCAserver metadata (objects, events, etc) is rendered into the video stream.


  • To display object parameters such as speed, height, area and classifications, the channel must first be calibrated.

  • To display DL Classification annotations, the channel must have an active Deep Learning Filter rule configured or the DL People Tracker enabled.

  • To display colour signature annotations, the channel must have an active Colour Filter rule configured.

  • Some annotations only apply to certain trackers, in such cases the required tracker is listed in brackets.
