We have a customer who is having PC/ cameras stream stability issues on his viewing stations and we have been tasked to build a better/proper station for him to eliminate these issues.
We have determined that the system CPU is spiking to 100% and causing the stability issues.
Are there any tools out there that will assist is building a proper viewing station (CPU, Memory, GPU, etc) for a given codec, resolution and frame rate?
The camera settings are only half of the story and the client software being used also has a lot to do with processing, but outside of the client software issues, anything you folks have used in the past to make sure your viewing stations are powerful enough to handle the camera streams?
I know a lot of VMS's have client options built in, but I'm looking for something more agnostic/third party to give me an idea of where I need to start spec-wise.
The customer is viewing 32 simultaneous cameras at full 1080p/30fps/H.264. However, it is split across two instances of the Client viewing software due to screen real estate limitations...i.e. they can't just get a huge TV and view all 32 on a single instance of the viewer, hence the need to split it out. The VMS they are using does not offer any type of video wall application or solution.
Any assistance is appreciated.
