Massive Storage Capacity & High-Resolution Display Micro-ATX Industrial Motherboard for IVS Surveillance Solution
In recent years, demand for surveillance solutions has grown continuously in line with efforts aimed at enhancing security for governmental authorities, enterprises, and individuals. As security concerns continue to rise, digital video surveillance solutions are being increasingly deployed in such applications as facial recognition systems in retail stores and security systems at airports. The current focus of developments in surveillance solutions is on intelligent video surveillance (IVS) systems, which provide advanced, accurate video analytics for both IP and analog cameras. An IVS engine can track, classify, and analyze the behavior of individual objects or groups of objects over long distances, thus greatly improving perimeter security and monitoring efficiency. Through IVS, people can not only perform monitoring in a timely manner but can also analyze video footage and implement preventative measures where necessary in order to prevent significant damage. IVS systems require image data to be compressed, and the network must allow for large files to be transmitted quickly, particularly for images in full HD1080P and up to 4K2K. The proliferation of cloud-based surveillance services has led to megapixel IP cameras becoming more common, and the IVS architecture has become the preferred solution in surveillance applications.
Requirements and Solution
A major system integrator of network video recording/digital video recorder (NVR/DVR) solutions in Taiwan needed to upgrade its hardware to fulfill more advanced intelligent specification requirements. The upgrade included high-performance CPUs (CoreTM i/Xeon®) with high-performance graphics processing under the H.265 video codec, triple independent displays supporting resolutions up to 4K2K, a sufficient number of USB ports for IP cameras, dual GbE LAN cards for data transmission, six to eight SATA ports with software RAID 0/1/5 support for data reliability and recovery, and multiple expansion slots for graphics cards and RAID cards. For this, the AIMB-585SV Micro-ATX motherboard was considered the ideal solution.
Featuring an Intel® Core™ Xeon®/i7/i5/i3 processor, the AIMB-585SV comes with an Intel® C236 chipset, dual GbE LAN ports, six serial ports (one RS-485), eight SATA III 600 MB/s ports, one mSATA port (PCIe x1 compliant), ten USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and three independent display outputs for DP/DVI-D/HDMI 2.0/VGA. The AIMB-585SV also comes with one PCIe x16 (Gen 3)/two PCIe x8, one PCIe x1, and one PCIe x4 expansion slots for decoding cards, graphic cards, or RAID cards for TV walls or some hybrid NVR/DVR architectures.
The AIMB-585SV also provides software advantages for surveillance applications, such as software RAID 0/1/5/10 support under Linux (or RAID 0/1/5/10 under WinServer 2012/2016), Acronis autorecovery and autobackup technology, McAfee banking-level security, and Wise-PaaS/RMM for remote monitoring and management. With rich hardware specifications and value-added software, Advantech’s AIMB-585SV industrial-grade Micro-ATX motherboard is the ideal IVS choice for surveillance.
The AIMB-585SV, a Micro-ATX industrial-grade motherboard specifically designed for IVS surveillance solutions, offers the following hardware and software features:
- Powerful Intel® Xeon® E3 or Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor
- Supports three independent displays with resolutions up to 4K2K (HDMI 2.0, DP, DVI-D,VGA)
- Eight SATA ports and one mSATA port for maximum storage capacity
- Dual GbE LAN ports with Jumbo Frame support.
- Support for one PCIe x16/two PCIE x8, one PCIe x1, and one PCIe x4 expansion slots
- Software RAID 0/1/5/10 support (Windows and Linux)
- Embedded WISE-PaaS/RMM for remote device management
- Auto recovery and auto backup technology from Acronis
