Re: Evaluating: A few questions

No worries, I didn't use them for quite a while before I realized it was there. The border of the video frame on each camera matches the timeline bar so you can match them.

Re: Evaluating: A few questions

When viewing historic video, the current frame of reference (and timeline) is the current clip but there is a setting so that when you reach the end of the clip it would either (A) roll into the next clip or (B) repeat the current clip. Your choice. Exporting might be a problem because you need to s...

Re: First surveillance build

Actually I'm being way too nice....and consumers are mostly looking to emotionally justify their purchases without understanding the technology. What is wrong with consumers looking for a proxy rather than understanding the underlying technology? There are a lot of people out there that don't under...

Re: First surveillance build

Because you can't "tune" a HD for particular data access Manufacturers absolutely tune (ie select components of varying performance vs cost) to achieve different outcomes. How can you deny that? If you don't like my usage of "tune" for selection of components during design, well then you are just t...

Re: First surveillance build

Not to bicker too much about storage, but the tuti-fruiti color scheme that Western Digital uses for HD is just marketing bunk. You mentioned in your post right after this that factors such as RPM and cache. I agree. Now if there was only a way to convey to the public that these rotational speeds r...

Re: First surveillance build

Purple designation is just a handy marketing name for a particular set of variables that turn out to be well suited for video. For instance, no need for 7200 rpm or large cache because the incoming video is a steady input stream. It isn't like having any bytes in cache for quick access would be like...

Re: First surveillance build

QuickSync isn't necessary but it is far away the most efficient video processing bang for the buck for BI installs.

Best - Intel CPU with QS
Next - Any CPU with external hardware processing
Basic - Raw CPU cores.

Re: First surveillance build

Quick observation... that MoBo doesn't seem to have integrated video. Maybe I just don't see it. Without integrated video it could be very tricky to get QuickSync to work. You might want to ask specifically about this with some experts. I know that my older rig does not use QuickSync because the sup...

Re: [newbie] Documentation to install on server

Generally speaking, it would be no different than running on-prem. No need for special instructions. Assuming of course that you had full admin access to the windows server in the cloud and have rights to install and run any application you choose. Also assuming there is enough compute cores availab...

Re: BlueIris sale price

Yes, The guy who runs that forum worked out some deal with BI where he can make a couple of dollars selling licenses.
