How many total video streams (cameras) can I view remotely?
All SCW NVR’s have the ability to have 128 total streams at any given time. 1 camera view = 1 stream. There are multiple bottlenecks in network transmission that can limit remote viewing. NVR’s outgoing bitrate, upload speed of the internet connection, network limitation (switch, router, traffic), for this reason you will want to use the Sub-Stream feed for less data transmission.
For larger systems it is recommended to give specific camera access to users based on their particular needs. Under this configuration, users will be able to view cameras that pertain to them.
It may not be necessary for “John” to have access to all 32 cameras when 4 is all he needs. You will then be able to utilize your network bandwidth more efficiently.
