An Introduction to RAID 5

An Introduction to RAID 5

This technical article will explain what RAID 5 is, why it should be used in megapixel IP camera systems, how it increases reliability and performance, and when you need to configure a video surveillance system with RAID 5.


Designing an IP Camera Project

Designing an IP Camera Project

Can you effectively determine how much IP camera resolution is needed? In this white paper you will learn about the real specification you should focus on when designing an IP camera solution and how camera resolution and the lens field of view impact the final results.


Judging NVR Performance Using Throughput Measurement

Judging NVR Performance Using Throughput Measurement

How do you effectively gauge the performance capabilities on a network video recorder (NVR)? Unlike frames per second (fps) or maximum resolution, there is no standard specification that measures the ability of NVRs to capture, process and record video, especially from megapixel IP cameras. This white paper explores using throughput as a comparison between different NVR manufacturers and models.
