Axis video servers

Post by Martz » Fri May 20, 2005 11:01 am


I've installed Zone Minder on Gentoo, got it configured and running. I currently have 12 analogue cameras which currently are all connected through a multiplexor.

I was hoping to replace the multiplexor with multiple Axis Video Servers. My requirements are for high FPS video at a decent quality. We'd like to make the most of the investment we've put into the existing cameras, and convert them to IP for digital storage.

My questions are:
  1. Can I use Zone Minder with an Axis Video Server and multiple cameras like I would use it with a real IP/networked camera? Has anyone sucessfully done this? What about multiple video servers?
  2. If high FPS is a priority, should I buy the single channel video servers or the dual/quad servers? It looks like he FPS/quality reduces the more devices that are connected to a single video server
  3. Will the Zone Minder development team write features requested if a company sponsors/pays for that work and effort?
Many thanks for your time,
