The IP Server is the heart of the Video Insight software product suite. It communicates directly with cameras - requesting images, forwarding images to clients, and saving them for review. The Server runs as an unattended application on standalone hardware or in virtual environments. Designed for performance, the Enterprise Class application can support more than 200 megapixel cameras per Operating System (OS). Networking is simplified when using the Video Insight Server since all Client applications connect to the Server and not directly to the cameras.

Architecture / Deployment Options

Video Insight IP Server runs as a Windows Service on 32- or 64-bit OS. Requesting images from the cameras, the IP Server processes the images for motion alarm, stores the video in a folder structure, and saves all configurations, motion, and system logs in a SOL server database. The Clients connect to the IP Server - not directly to the cameras - and the Web Client uses Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). From an architecture perspective, Video Insight has four components: Server: Storage: SQL and IIS - each of which can be configured a number of ways to adapt to your organization's needs.

About Server Performance

Factors affecting Server Performance include: number of cameras, resolution, FPS (frames per second), and motion-based recording.

Video Insight supports four types of recording modes: record always, record on schedule, motion-based, and higher FPS on motion.

When using motion-based recording, only changes in video are saved and all redundant images are discarded. This motion-based recording method compares the current image to the previous image. This comparison can take place on the cam era or on the server and is referred to as camera-side or server-side motion detection.

When using server-side motion detection each image is decompressed on the server, which requires a significant amount of computation. When sizing a server, the most efficient method is camera-side motion detection, but in those cases where the camera does not support it or is not very effective and server-side is used, the Server CPU needs to be adjusted.
