Vivotek Introduces new Smart Stream
Vivotek Introduces new “Smart Stream” Encoding Technology
Video surveillance storage options has become one of the most interesting and difficult topics in the industry. We haven’t had many problems increasing the number of megapixels a camera can have, but we have had issues increasing storage and bandwidth options to match those higher data requirements. Luckily, compression technologies like H.264 and H.265 have helped, but we are still searching to find the best of the best when it comes to compression rates.
New Smart Stream video encoding technology
Vivotek is trying to be the pioneer with their new Smart Stream video encoding technology. One big feature that Smart Stream offers is the fact that it is still compatible with the H.264 and H.265 compression rates. Since most of the cameras in the security world run off these rates, this is huge if you consider the bigger picture. Smart stream utilizes unique algorithms and specific movements that are prioritized on the screen creating less data and lower bandwidth requirements. Smart Stream can reduce storage requirements up to 80%, whereas H.265 reduces the amount needed by 50%. This is drastically improved and is the future for the entire security cameras industry.
