Resolution

For those VMSs that have integrated Optera cameras, the number of video streams that can be viewed simultaneously is dependent on the processing power of the VMS client software and its implementation of the Panomersive Toolkit Pelco provides to de-warp video into panoramic and immersive views.

For example, we have used the Panomersive Toolkit to display one panoramic and two immersive views simultaneously at full resolution (12MP) and maximum frame rate (12.5FPS) on a system with the following specifications:

 

Processor: Intel Core i7 @ 2 GHz

System Memory: 8GB

Video Memory:    2GB (OpenGL v2.0+)

 

Additional streams can be added by using a system with better specifications and/or reducing the quality (Resolution/Framerate) of the camera streams.
