1. The Nvidia card is a PCI-e card which provides dual monitor support.
2. I can view 16 HD streams at a time with almost 100% CPU. (Not really recommended)
-- the cams are located on different media servers from two different states TX & FL
-- Normally I would have 9 streams of mixed SD and HD cams on one monitor rotating views and on the other monitor, I would have the VSOM Client running with one view.
3. I only use one stream
4. Our cams vary from 6 to 30 fps, depending on their mission.
Use the swcond streams on all cameras. Set all second streams on cameras ex. 640x480 10fps. And set up the sasd for to use the second streams when the pc sources are loaded to the critical.
Maybe i7 and a min. 1gb graphic card can solve your need but no one can tell the rigth answer without trying. In our installations we have a lot fullhd cams but all of them are in different locations and viewing by different operators.
