System requirements for Watcher

Flussonic Watcher works in two versions:

  1. Single - Suitable for those who do not need branding of the interface (their logo, colors), for projects of up to 500 cameras, not more than 1 server.
  2. Cluster - Advanced version. Includes branding tools (changing logo, color, text), the ability to expand to tens of thousands of cameras, including the ability to build a cluster of dozens of servers with redundant streams. This configuration requires a minimum of 2 servers. Suitable for those who do subscriber service or a large video surveillance system.
