I have been tasked with starting a surveillance camera program that will include temporary cellular deployments. I’ve seen a build using PTZs with cradle point routers, directly transmitting raw footage back to the NVR in MJPEG at an extremely low frame rate to lower bandwidth. I would like to place a mini PC/NVR at the edge and take advantage of the smart codecs to reduce bandwidth and transmit high-quality footage for remote access. I have a few questions regarding this setup:
1) Will this method allow me to transmit higher-quality video over 4G?
2) Can a mini pc withstand cold temps in a NEMA enclosure with a small silicone pad heater?
3) Can I record to a storage server back at the station? If so, how do I set up the communication path between the NVR at the camera and my storage server at the station?
I have deployed several systems using Ubiquity Nanostations, but I’m not familiar with router to router communications with separate PCs at the edge and at the head end.
Any suggestions and/or criticisms would be greatly appreciated.
