Hikvision Stream Media Server

Hello

When I connect camera streams to Hikvision Stream Media Server (SMS), does SMS receive all the connected camera streams all the time, even when they are not used and waste bandwidth in the effect or only receives and forwards particular stream when it is needed (on demand) i.e. watching live stream on the client software?
