Architecture for Video Surveillance


The Web Client utilized Microsoft IIS and can take advantage of additional integrated security, SSL communication and Load Balancing. The Web Client communicates with the Video Insight IP Server and users can login to any Web Client and authenticated to view live and recorded video from any server. Image processing, including downsampling, is executed on the IIS the user is connected to. When supported by the camera, the Web Client will request a second MJPEG stream from the camera or the Web Client will transcode the video. In all cases, when two or more Web Clients are viewing the same live feed, only one connection to the camera is made. The Web Client supports all browsers and when using Internet Explorer has an optional ActiveX plugin. When using the standard, all images are transmitted as MJPEG to the client. When using High Speed mode, all images are sent using H.264.

Security for  Video Surveillance


Communication between the Web Client and users browser can be standard MJPEG or with the user of the Video Insight ActiveX control, can be in a secure, proprietary format. In addition, by installing an SSL certificate on the IIS, all data transmitted between the client and the server can be encrypted.

Networking Requirement for Video Surveillance


The Web Server connects directly to the IP Server and processes via ports 4010 and 4011. The default HTTP port for user traffic is 80, but can be changed to any port in IIS configuration. In a multi-server configuration, a Web Client user can connect to Server 1 and receive live and recorded video from Server 2. Web Client users only connect to port 80 and do not connect to SQL Server or any other port. When using Internet Explorer and the optional ActiveX control, all communication between the server and the client are on ports 4010 and 4011.

Requirements web video surveillance

System Requirements

Minimum specifications depend on the number of simultaneous live images displayed. The Web Client receives compressed data from the IP Server and users to local CPU to decompress and display. When viewing a single image almost any Windows based PC will work. As the number of cameras or resolution increases so do the system requirements. If the Workstation is capable, the server will send all requested images to the Web Client but if the local system is not capable of decompressing the images, the Server will automatically adjust the FPS to a lower rate.

Windows OS - 32 or 64bit versions of Win 7, Win 8, 2008 or 2012

Internet Explorer 8 or higher

Memory - Monitor Station will use 150MB - 400MB depending on number of cameras displayed

Video Card - 256MB or greater with support for Direct X version 5, 7 or 9, 11, 3D

CPU - The Monitor Station can use both Intel and AMD processors, but will take advantage of Intel's IPP embedded code to improve decoding performance.
