To ensure optimal performance, do not exceed the maximum number of camera streams supported by a Media Gateway in Security Center 5.9.
Media Gateway agents provide video streams to the Security Center Web Client, Genetec™ Mobile app, and external RTSP connections. The maximum number of camera streams supported by a dedicated Media Gateway server in Security Center 5.9 is as follows:
Input resolution @ 15 fps
640 x 480
1920 x 1080
|Maximum streams without transcoding||350||150|
|Maximum streams with MJPEG transcoding||1001||401|
|Maximum stream with MJPEG transcoding + Nvidia P2000 GPU||130||54|
1 Video watermarking requires extra processing of transcoded video frames. If watermarking is applied to all streams, the maximum number of Media Gateway camera streams is reduced by 30%.
Video stream transcoding is determined by the requesting application, as follows:
|External RTSP connections||Never|
|Web Client||Only in the following situations:
When transcoding, output is resized to resolutions of 640x480 (VGA) or less, maintaining the aspect ratio.
