Pelco SDK Development Requirements
In addition to your client machine, a Pelco SDK compatible Pelco device is required. See Pelco API web services supported on Pelco products.
The minimum requirements for networking environments supporting Endura devices and Pelco SDK-based applications are as follows:
- 100Base-T for IP cameras and single channel encoders
- 1000Base-T (Gigabit) is required for all other Endura devices
- Cat 5e cabling (Cat 6 or Cat 6a is recommended.)
- Single or multimode fiber should be used for distances exceeding copper standards.
Video Streaming and Exporting Peformance details the performance specs that Pelco SDK-based applications can expect to achieve. Video streaming and export are extremely processor-intensive operations and were tested in various configurations. Event monitoring and normal usage of the Pelco SDK is not processor-intensive and was not measured.
