VxPro: How many IP cameras are supported with VxPro recorders?

Issue

  • How many IP cameras can I add to a VxPro video recorder?
  • Is there a maximum amount of data sources which can be added to VxPro.

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • VideoXpert Professional (VxPro)
    • ECO, Flex, Power
    • Maximum throughput (both Live and Playback throughput)

Cause

Spec'ing a new VxPro recorder.

Resolution

VxPro does not have a camera count limit implemented, instead the cap to the amount of data sources added to the system is the maximum bitrate allowed. The amount of IP cameras or data sources added must not exceed the maximum throughput specified for the VxPro recorder installed.

Currently the maximum total throughput (Live and Playback):

  • Power Server = Up to 450 Mbps
  • Flex Server = Up to 450 Mbps
  • Eco Server = Up to 200 Mbps

    Refer to the VideoXpert Storage Estimator to determine how many IP cameras can be added to the VxPro recorder.
