Intelligent digital security surveillance (DSS) solutions allow businesses and other entities to view and record incidents at higher resolutions than ever before. Equally important, these solutions enable video analytics that can provide real-time actionable intelligence to improve security and business processes. However, the growing use of high-definition (HD) video and interest in ultra-high-definition (UHD) 4K resolution threatens to put a strain on network bandwidth, video decoding, and storage.
This article considers how video surveillance operations can use the latest network video recorders (NVRs) to implement the high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) known as H.265 to improve compression. Specifically, we explore how NEXCOM's new NViS 1410 employs the latest Intel® Pentium® and Intel® Celeron® processors (codenamed Braswell) and H.265 to reduce pressure on bandwidth and storage. We also look at how these processors deliver hardware-accelerated video decode, up to 4K resolution, and smooth playback.
