The GV-Video Gateway is a video streaming server designed for large-scale video surveillance deployments. It can receive up to 128 IP cameras from various IP video devices. In addition, it can simultaneously distribute up to 300 channels to its clients which include GV-System (DVR/NVR system), GV-VMS (video management system), GV-GIS (geographic information system), GV-Mobile Server, GV-Control Center (central monitoring system), and Multi View (viewing software) and GV-Edge Recording Manager (multi view software). GV-Video Gateway can also send text notifications to one GV-VSM (Vital Sign Monitor) when alert conditions occur. Using the GV-Video Gateway, the desired frame rates can be reached while the CPU loading and the bandwidth usage of IP video devices are significantly reduced.


In some areas or countries, you may like to install 3G wireless Internet module (e.g. GPRS/UMTS) on the GV-Video Server or GV-Compact DVR but have the problem to obtain a public IP address from ISP. The Passive connection method of GV-Video Gateway can solve the public IP issue by accepting the connection request from the GV-Video Server or GV-Compact DVR, and then distribute the video streaming to clients.

 

It is also possible to view single-channel live images on the GV-Video Gateway server or multiple-channel live images on any PC through the GV-Video Gateway's Web interface.


Features
  • Video gateway between IP cameras and receiving clients (GV-DVR / NVR / VMS, GV-Control Center, GV-GIS, GV-Mobile Server, Multi View, GV-Edge Recording Manager and GV-Eye)
  • Simultaneously receiving up to 128 IP channels
  • Video distribution for clients up to 300 IP channels
  • Passive and Active connection methods with IP video devices (Passive connection only supported by GV-IP devices)
  • Compatibility with a variety of third-party IP video devices (Sony, Axis, VIVOTEK, Panasonic, HikVision, Arecont Vision)
  • Single-channel or multi-channel live view through IE browser

  • Solution for Mobile DVR (GV-Video Server, GV-Compact DVR) to obtain a public IP address
  • Web interface to remotely configure and monitor GV-Video Gateway using Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari
  • Remote event monitoring through GV-Vital Sign Monitor
  • Support for 31 languages

Servers meeting the following minimum system requirements have the capacity to perform one of the following:

  • Receive up to 128 channels and transmit up to 300 channels with the image settings of 1280 x 1024 resolution, 30 fps and H.264 codec for each channel. OR
  • Receive up to 128 channels and transmit up to 300 channels with the image settings of 1920 x 1080 resolution, 30 fps and H.264 codec for each channel. OR
  • Receive up to 128 channels and transmit up to 300 channels with the image settings of 2048 x 1536 resolution, 20 fps and H.264 codec for each channel.
OS 64-bit Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 / Server 2008 R2 / Sever 2012 R2
CPU Core i7 2600, 3.4 GHz
Memory 6 GB Dual Channels
Hard Disk 1 GB (for installation)
Browser
  • Internet Explorer 8 to 11
  • Mozilla Firefox 26.0
  • Google Chrome 31.0.1650.63
  • Safari 5.1.7
  • Software .Net Framework 3.5
    Note:
    1. In order to receive 128 channels and transmit up to 300 channels with the image settings of 1920 x 1080 resolution, 30 fps and H.264 codec for each channel, Gigabit Ethernet x 6 is required. Refer to the Network Requirements section below for details.
    2. It is recommended to use the internal GV-USB Dongle to have the Hardware Watchdog function which restarts the PC when Windows crashes or freezes.

    Network Requirements

    The server's transmitting capacity varies depending on the number of Gigabit connections. The numbers of Gigabit network cards required to receive 128 channels and transmit 300 channels are listed below according to the resolution of the source video.

    Resolution FPS Codec Gigabit Network Cards Required
    Receiving 128 ch Transmitting 300 ch
    1.3 MP 30 fps H.264

    Gigabit network card x 1
    (up to 128 ch per card)

    Gigabit network card x 2
    (up to 150 ch per card)

    2.0 MP 30 fps H.264

    Gigabit network card x 2
    (up to 64 ch per card)

    Gigabit network card x 4
    (up to 75 ch per card)

    3.0 MP 20 fps H.264

    Gigabit network card x 1
    (up to 128 ch per card)

    Gigabit network card x 2
    (up to 150 ch per card)

    The deployment of Gigabit connections for transmitting and receiving is suggested as illustrated below. Ensure to run every Gigabit connection on a different network in order to reduce the lag on any network connection.

    Suggested Motion Detection Frequency
    The number of channels supported may vary depending on the frequency of motion detection you set. When the time interval between each motion detection is small, motion detection is more sensitive, but more CPU resource is required and the number of channels supported is decreased.
    Below is the suggested time interval for motion detection and the number of channels supported at that time interval.
    Resolution Time Interval for Motion Detection Receiving Transmitting
    1.0 MP (1280 x 1024) 500 milliseconds 128 ch 240 ch
    2.0 MP (1920 x 1080) 90 ch 180 ch
    3.0 MP (2048 x 1536) 250 milliseconds 55 ch 111 ch
    5.0 MP (2560 x 1920) 45 ch 90 ch
