* Please note that these legacy boards do not support full duplex mode, therefore live pass through is only possible with two boards, first serving the input and second providing the output.

Hardware Recommendations

The actual performance of a machine depends on the number of running channels and their resolution, enabled inputs and outputs and RTP encoding/decoding, therefore no precise hardware recommendation can be given.

Nevertheless, as we keep optimizing our software tools for better performance, the following typical configurations have been tested for our own and our customer’s reference:

Application

Single Xeon E5 2620v3 CPU 16GB DDR4 RAM

Dual Xeon E5 2630v3 CPU 32GB DDR4 RAM

RTP Streaming Network

It is highly recommended to split the file and streaming operations between two physically separate networks. Therefore please consider that all your servers and workstations have two Gigabit Ethernet adapters.

Please disable the "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" and "Client for Microsoft Networks" options for the adapters connected to RTP network, and uncheck the "Register these connection’s addresses in DNS" in this adapter’s TCP/IPv4 settings (see Advanced/DNS tab).
