I NEED 30 FPS RECORDING AND VIEWING LIVE IN CONSOLE, I need to be able to capture slight of hand or pocketing of merchandise. I have 5 x Hikvision DS-2CD2143G0-I 4MP BNIB and will expand when cables are routed and stock at retailer is available. I need 10-12 cameras in my store to capture potentially all necessary angles. The resolution I would like to run at is 2688x1520 OR 2560x1440 OR 2304x1296. Any one of those resolutions are capable on my purchased camera. I would love to take advantage of the H265 codec. Why include or pay for specifications if I can't use them? This personactually posted a screen grab of 30 cameras running at LQ 10fps on a Xeon. This personmentions 10-15 fps on a 9700k. This personis running a Xeon at 10fps. I have been in and out of 100s of BI threads for the last year or two on multiple forums, I jumped the gun and bought the first 5 IP cameras from B&H. I don't own BI yet, but, I've read potentially every setting that I should enable and disable in BI to get a proper experience. I've narrowed the CPU to i7 8700k w. 16gb of ram, Everybody mentions used merchandise, I would much rather buy new and not worry than buy used and have a part failure. I've built countless computers for family and friends, I known my way around the internals of a PC, I would much rather build one. Is this achievable? Is megapixels in a IP camera a scam? What am I missing? I attached a screenshot of the 3 builds i found on the blue iris performance statistic's database. I was basing my PC build loosely off of those; console on @ 30fps, I7's, 10+ camera, PC consuming around 10gb of memory.
