What is a Video Server

A Video Server is a dedicated computer that includes video management software (VMS). It is very similar to the Network Video Recorder (NVR), but instead of a dedicated computer it uses a general-purpose Windows type computer. Since it uses a general-purpose computer it is easier to add additional hard drives to record the video. The computer includes a high-performance video processor necessary to support the IP cameras on the network. The computer is matched to the number of cameras, the resolution, and the management system required.
