Hardware Guidelines for MV Video Wall Workstations

Overview

This article outlines recommended minimum system requirements for streaming MV video for both the Meraki Dashboard and the new Meraki Vision portal.

Hardware requirements for a dedicated MV streaming workstation depend on the amount of cameras that will be viewed simultaneously. Below are minimum system requirements for streaming 4 to 16 cameras on a single video wall.

If wanting to view more than 16 cameras, we recommend using the video wall rotation feature. 

Notes to keep in mind as you read through these guidelines:

  • System recommendations are based on 2018 hardware.
  • System memory is the key resource in prolonged video playback. We recommend closing other applications if running prolonged video walls. 
  • In addition to the requirements below, performance depends on many factors including:
    • specific browsers used - we recommend keeping browsers up-to-date
    • connectivity of the entire set-up - we recommend limiting the usage of adapters
    • local vs cloud - we recommend to have wired network connectivity for video streaming workstations. Wireless network connectivity can greatly impact streaming performance at scale.
