Intel® Digital Security Surveillance System Media Performance
Performance benchmarks show how 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors meet the evolving video encode, decode, and application processing requirements of Intel® Digital Security Surveillance (DSS) systems.
DSS systems are primarily used for security and loss prevention, and they are increasingly being deployed in market segments with more diverse usage models. In retail environments DSS systems are used for business intelligence to improve sales or anonymously analyze purchasing behavior. In transportation DSS systems provide license plate recognition to track traffic violations, and in the government sector DSS devices monitor public areas, such as airport terminals.
Although DSS use cases vary, a common factor across all market segments is the availability of video streams. In this computing environment, one of the most important parameters for DSS platform evaluation is media encode and media decode capability, and processor utilization is one of the key enablers of such capabilities in a DSS device. Understanding available processor utilization is critical to ensure that other applications, or video analytics algorithms, can be executed by the processor.
This white paper explains a media performance benchmark methodology, and includes an H.264 performance matrix for DVR, NVR, and Hybrid DVR in addition to an H.264 media encode performance guide and an H.264 media encode performance guide. The benchmark data enables evaluation of DSS platforms based on selected SKUs of 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors in three product types: digital video recorder, hybrid digital video recorder, and network video recorder.
