Massive Storage Capacity MicroATX Industrial Motherboard for NVR Surveillance Solution

Date: 6/26/2013 8:15:04 PM

In recent years, China’s booming economy has brought great benefits to its economy, but also crime and traffic accidents have also increased.  As security concerns escalate, digital video surveillance solutions are increasingly deployed in applications within public security services, law enforcement and transportation where video surveillance has a big part to play. There are two major types of video recording; one is called DVR or Digital Video Recorder, and the other requires installing a capture card on a DVR motherboard to encode analog to digital signals from cameras. All analog video/audio signals from cameras transmit data to the capture card via analog coaxial cables (BNC, RCA cables), and this means systems are limited by physical cable length. Network Video Recorder (NVR) is the latest video technology, and instead of traditional cameras, IP CAMs are used to transfer a digital signals directly over the Internet. Image compression allows large files to be transmitted over the network regardless of distance and location, and in full HD 1080P. The spread of the Internet means megapixel IP CAMs are becoming more common, and the NVR architecture has become the favored solution in surveillance applications.

Application Requirements
A major system integrator of NVR solutions in China, who in the past used to use Intel® Core™2 Duo /Quad platforms, now needed to upgrade their hardware to fulfill more advanced specification requirements. These demands include high performance CPUs (Core i /Xeon) with high graphic processing for intelligent facial identification, and support for triple/multi displays with plenty of inputs for IP CAMs. Two GbE LANs are available for generous data transmission, as well as softwareRAID0, 1 support  for data reliability and recovery, plus expansion slots for graphic cards or HW RAID cards.

Project Implementation
AIMB-502SV MicroATX industrial motherboard is specifically designed for NVR surveillance solutions. Following are the special H/W features:

* Powerful Intel® Xeon E3 or Core™ i7/i5/i3 processing capability
* Supports 3 independent displays (CRT, HDMI, DVI-D)
* 8 x SATA, 1 x eSATA and 1 x mSATA support for high end storage (supports “Hot Plug”)
* Dual GbE LAN ports with Jumbo Frame support.
* 1 x PCIe x16 / 1 x PCIe x1 / 1 x PCI expansion slots 
* SW RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 sustains (Windows & Linux)
* Phoenix connector (RS-485) & GPIO for alarm and cloud control
* High-end graphics (DirectX11, OpenGL3)

Featuring Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor capability, AIMB-502SV comes with Intel Q77 Chipset, dual GbE LAN, six serial ports (one RS-485), two SATA III 600 MB/s, six SATAII 300 MB/s, 1 x external SATA port,  1 x mSATA (PCIe x1 compliant) port,  four USB 3.0/ two USB 2.0 port, and triple display output for CRT/DVI-D/HDMI ports. AIMB-502 also has 1x  PCIe x16 (Gen 3) or 2 PCIe x8, 1  PCIe x1, and 1 x PCI expansion slots, for decoding cards, graphic cards or hardware RAID cards required for TV walls or some hybrid NVR/DVR architectures.


AIMB-502 also provides software advantages for surveillance applications, likesoftware RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 supported under Linux (RAID 0, 1, 5 under WinServer 2003/2008), SUSIAccess for remote monitoring and management, and also Acronis auto-recovery and auto-backup technology, and McAfee for banking level security protection.


With rich hardware specifications and software value add, Advantech’s AIMB-502SV industrial grade MicroATX motherboard is the best NVR choice for surveillance.


* Dedicated surveillance focused MicroATX motherboard lowers customization effort
