— DETEXI IP-Surveillance Planning – System Scalability — Overview —
A system that grows with your needs
There are two challenges that video surveillance systems are facing today, namely scalability and reliability. Large organizations that have multiple sites in local or remote locations could have from ten to over a thousand cameras to manage.
Scalability varies according to the type of system chosen, and must therefore be considered at the design stage of a network video management system.
Scalability StepsA DVR system is usually supplied with 4, 9 or 16 camera inputs, therefore becomes scalable in steps of 4, 9 or 16. If a system includes 15 cameras, this is not an issue, but it becomes a problem if 17 cameras are needed. Adding one single camera would generate the need for an additional DVR.
Frame Rate ControlNetwork video allows for frame rate control, while in the case of analog video, all video is sent from the camera all the time. Frame rate control in network video systems means that the network camera/video server only sends images at the specified frame rate; that is, no unnecessary frames are transferred over the network.
Number of Cameras per RecorderIn a network video management system, a PC server records and manages the video. The PC server can be selected according to the performance needed.
Size of SystemFor larger installations, a network video management system is easy to scale. When higher recording frame rates or longer recoding times are needed, more processing and/or memory capacity can be added to the PC server managing the video.

DETEXI NVR Domain Controller
The central administration point of the distributed network of NVRs or NVR domain is the DETEXI NVR Domain Controller — part of the DETEXI software.
* The IGLOO mobile technical solution is a specialized enclosure and power distribution system designed specifically for outdoor IT deployments. The IGLOO was born out of a need to provide protection for wireless radio equipment, network video equipment and computer systems in extreme climatic conditions.
Scale from small business use to enterprise level security operations
To expand your current security installation to NVR Domain configuration, buy multi-site connectivity licenses —
Thus, it becomes possible to control NVR network — the group of several NVRs that are logically attached to the main NVR remotely from the NVR Controller.
If 5 NVRs logically attached to the main NVR are required you’ll need to buy 5 remote site licenses.
