White paper available from Toshiba providing measurement techniques for evaluating throughput on Network Video Recorders
Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems has announced the availability of its latest white paper, 'Judging NVR Performance Using Throughput Measurement.'
IT professionals accustomed to measuring the performance of a Digital Video recorder (DVR) by way of frames-per-second at a certain resolution may be challenged to find a similar snapshot comparison for Network Video recorder (NVR) performance. This white paper details the value of using throughput, or the amount of data processed over a given time period, as a benchmark. Topics covered in the white paper include:
* Comparing DVR-based systems to NVR-based systems
* The problem with NVR performance when deployed with MegaPixel IP cameras
* The critical role of the CPU in an NVR
* Questions to ask a vendor when evaluating an NVR.
