Intelligent Network Video Recorder Construction and Optimization
The digital security and surveillance industry is rapidly adopting networked intelligent solutions designed to manage and analyze multiple streams of high-definition IP video. System elements include network video recorders (NVRs) designed to provide robust video processing and management of multiple HD video streams, content analysis through sophisticated video analytics, and high-throughput.
This white paper provides an in-depth discussion of the design and implementation of network video recorder (NVR) products for IP video digital security and surveillance applications, including recommendations on hardware selection and software architecture.
Application and media processing enhancements in 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors and Intel® Xeon® processors enable developers of NVR products to optimize performance throughout the video processing and analysis pipeline. Functional modules within the NVR benefit from hardware-accelerated graphics, enabled by the powerful video encoding and decoding performance and parallel processing capabilities of Intel® HD Graphics. This paper includes a description of common hardware and software design issues and provides recommended approaches for optimizing the performance of the processor’s integrated graphics processing unit (GPU) and acceleration of decoding, post-processing, and video analysis in NVR products.
