Hardware Guidelines for MV Streaming Workstations

Overview

This article outlines recommended system requirements for streaming MV video. 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.

Note: System recommendations are based on 2018 hardware.

4 Video Tile Video Wall Requirements

    OS: Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    Processor: Intel CPU Core i3-8100, AMD CPU Ryzen 3 2200G
    Memory: 4 GB DDR4
    Graphics: Integrated GPU sufficient. Discrete GPU optional for this deployment.

 

16 Video Tile Video Wall Requirements

    OS: Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    Processor: Intel Core i5-8400, AMD Ryzen 5 1400
    Memory: 8 GB DDR4
    Graphics: Mid-range discrete GPU for H.264 hardware acceleration

Multi Video Wall Systems

In certain scenarios, workstations will be deployed with multiple screens for viewing more than one video wall at a time. Below are the minimum system requirements for streaming three video walls with 16 cameras each (48 streams in total).

    OS: Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    Processor: Intel Core i7-8700, AMD Ryzen 7 1700
    Memory: 16 GB DDR4
    Graphics: High end discrete GPU for H.264 hardware acceleration

Note: It is recommend to have wired network connectivity for video streaming workstations. Wireless network connectivity can greatly impact streaming performance at scale.
