    Installation of both Storage Server and Viewer on a single PC may cause a heavy load on your PC depending on the number of camera servers or recording schedule. If you use VK-64/VK- 16 with many Camera Servers, install each application on separate PCs.
  • Page 27 Storage Server #2 Receive and Storage Server Record video You can operate VK-64/VK-16 with up to ten Storage Servers using any combination of VK-64 Storage Server and VK-16 Note Storage Server. Up to 192 Camera Servers can be operated. Up to ten Viewers can connect to the Storage Servers at the same time.
  • Page 28: About The Master Storage Server

    System Design Concept About the Master Storage Server A Master Storage Server is the Storage Server which a Viewer will connect to in the first place. Information about Camera Servers, Locations and Zones and Viewer Layouts are stored on the Master Storage Server. The Viewer extracts the information from the Master Storage Server.
  • Page 29: Server Sizing Concept

    Note Required Hard Disk Capacity The VK-64/VK-16 receives each image from a Camera Server as a JPEG image. The size of the images varies depending on the configuration of the Camera Server (the settings for Quality and Resolution) and the complexity of the actual image.
  • Page 30 System Design Concept ● Determining Hard Disk Capacity Determine the hard disk capacity as follows. Determine the required number of Camera Servers and video resolution. Determine the quality of each Camera Server. Higher quality causes larger data per frame. Determine the frame rate for recording video (i.e., the number of frames per second).
  • Page 31 The following tables give some typical frame sizes (in kilobytes) for various quality and resolution values from a VB-C300 and VB-C50i. However it is important to note that, depending on the complexity of the image, the frame sizes may vary substantially from those listed in the tables.

    System Design Concept Sensor Event Recording and Motion Detection Recording Concept ● Notes on Sensor Event Recording and Motion Detection Recording When an event such as sensor input or motion detection occurs, it will be stored in the Storage Server as an operation record. As the number of stored operation records increased, the operation and search speed at event detection may be affected.
  • Page 33: Storage Server Performance

    Note (including networking equipment, disk write speed, complexity of camera image, etc), the actual performance of VK-64/VK-16 recording in a specific installation will vary. Please be sure to confirm under the actual installation conditions before starting operations.
  • Page 34: Notes On Viewer Sizing

    System Design Concept ● Notes on Storage Server Deployment It is recommended to use the Storage Server exclusively for the VK-64/VK-16. Be sure to avoid the following forms of deployment. Using the Storage Server with a Web Server You cannot use the Storage Server on a PC where Web server software such as Windows standard IIS (Internet Information Server) or Apache is already installed.

  • Page 273: About Hard Disk

    It is reasonable to assume that the lifetime of hard disks in a VK-64/VK-16 system is about half of that of a standard file server (one and a half years). Therefore, when you build a VK-64/VK-16 system, it is advisable to provide a hot-spare (spare hard disks that are active) for RAID configuration.
  • Page 274 About Hard Disk ● Configuration for Reducing Rebuilding Time As described in the preceding section, it is important to shorten rebuilding time as far as possible. You can reduce rebuilding time by configuring hard disks as follows: For example, when you create two configurations including three 146GB hard disks and a hot- spare, instead of creating one configuration (900GB) including three 300GB hard disks and a hot-spare, rebuilding requires less time and risks are reduced.
