Bluecherry as a multi-cam viewer

I install LTS cameras, and often use NVMS7000 to let customers view all their cameras. However, NVMS7000 is a beast, requiring top end hardware just to view cameras. Some customers want a dedicated monitor to view the cameras, and we usually plug the monitor directly in to the NVR. However, sometimes that isn’t practical. It would be great if we could put a small Atom-based PC behind the monitor and run software on the PC that displays all their cameras, but NVMS7000 slows it down to a crawl. Would Bluecherry make a good solution? We don’t need to record, just display. Thanks.

Yes, and even better in version 3. Currently we try to offload the live view to the GPU and in v3 we are using sub-streams to send a much lower resolution feed to the client.


Can the server display the monitors? Or would I have to run the server and the client on the same machine?

The client can display on seperate monitors. If you haven’t already try Version 3 on Ubuntu 18.04 with a supported GPU to see the reduced CPU usage:
