VSOM workstation graphics card

KAROLY KOHEGYI

Hi,

We have to use SFF like chassis for VSOM workstation. ( eq. security guard room )

This chassis has a half PCIe slot only.

1. What kind of graphics card is suitable for VSOM and SFF chassis?

----------------------------

The HP offers i7 processor only for this SFF.

2. Has it got enough performance?

( The PC maker vendor is obligatory )

-----------------------------------

Regards,

Looking at the most robust HP SFF computer, the HP Compaq 8100 Elite Small Form Factor PC, it appears that the ATI Radeon HD 4650 (1 GB)
would be the best choice for compatibility with VSOM.

I will answer your second question first.  On HP's website, their specifications page for the 8100 elite SFF computer may be found here:

Of the available graphics card choices, the ATI Radeon HD 4650 (1 GB) is the card I would recommend for viewing video through VSOM.

As to how many HD feeds this computer is capable of viewing simulatneously, I am afraid that's not a simple question to answer.  There are just too many variables.  Your best solution would be to gain access to a demo SFF PC configured with their best DirectX video card + most video and system RAM, and run the Workstation Profiler Tool on that machine.

The Workstation Profile Tool determines how many video streams can play on a workstation. To use, download and extract the entire ZIP file, and see the README. Requires VSM 4.2/6.2 video client.

There has not yet been a posted Profiler Tool for VSM 6.3, but the 4.2/6.2 version may be downloaded from this url:

http://www.ciscoet.com/files/519-profiler.zip

Additional profiles may be downloaded using this link:

http://www.ciscoet.com/files/Cisco_VSM_Workstation_Profiles_files.zip

The zip file contains 7 profiles:

H.264 HD 1080p 30 fps 4 Mbps.bwm
H.264 HD 1080p 30 fps 6 Mbps.bwm
H.264 HD 1080p 30 fps 15 Mbps.bwm
JPEG HD 4CIF 15 fps.bwm
MPEG-4 SD 4CIF 15 fps 1 Mbps.bwm
MPEG-4 SD 4CIF 7.5 fps 512 Kbps.bwm
MPEG-4 SD 4CIF 30 fps 3 Mbps.bwm
MPEG-4 SD 4CIF 30 fps 2 Mbps.bwm
MPEG-4 SD 4CIF 30 fps 3 Mbps.bwm

By loading multiple profiles when running the Workstation Profiler Tool, you can determine the maximum number of simultaneous feeds of a given bitrate and streamrate (or fps in the case of JPEG) which your PC can dispay.

Hi,

These urls from the partner site should answer your questions regarding graphic cards and VSOM client.

1)  Video Surveillance Monitoring Workstation Recommended Baseline Specification:

     http://www.ciscoet.com/resourcelib.asp?id=997

2)  VSM Workstation Profile Tool:


     http://www.ciscoet.com/resourcelib.asp?id=519

3)  VSM Workstation Profile Tool (Profiles):


     http://www.ciscoet.com/resourcelib.asp?id=720

NOTE: Although it may work at one time or in some cases, we have seen issue related to video feed viewing with Intel graphic cards not sufficient to handle “video renderer” (VR) or the “video mixing renderer” (VMR) by the graphics interface.

Hope this is helpful.  Thank you

Thanks!

It was very exact answer.

Please let me two question!

1.  Has Radeon 4650 enough performance to handle 4-6 HD H264 stream?

2. Where did you find this very useful table?
