Navigating Network Video Recording Topographies

An article on by Bosch’s Dr. Bob Banerjee describes the factors that impact the architecture for an IP video system design – including bandwidth, budget, maintenance and storage requirements.

The article explains that the driving force behind the architecture is often where the video will be recorded. One of the first decisions made by an integrator during system design is whether to employ a centralized network video recorder solution or a more decentralized approach, such as encoders with embedded storage and distributed iSCSI disk arrays. Dr. Banerjee clarifies the benefits of and differences between these approaches.

The availability of new options for IP video system design can benefit the end user as integrators are better equipped to meet their customers’ diverse requirements. To learn more about the advantages and drawbacks of available network video topographies, read the full article on
