We have a site with a high camera count being run by multiple servers scattered throughout a facility. They hired a guard service and now there are multiple guards monitoring cameras 24/7. Each building has its' own server and the cameras are on a separate network. Each server is plugged into the corporate network via a separate NIC on the server. So, right now all of these guards are streaming the video in megapixel resolutions at higher framerates over the corporate network.
Would it be beneficial to setup a 2nd stream of VGA quality with a slower framerate and allow their cleints to only view these streams? These lower quality streams would not record but just be for monitoring only. Right now my private networks and recorders are running 100% so I don't want to open up a can of worms.
What could be the possible downsides? The platform is Exacq.
