Bird box streaming server question

Unanswered Question
Nov 22nd, 2009

Hi all,
We are a wildlife project and have just bought many bird box cameras from a UK company for our important research project. We want to stream the nest box footage across our intranet and extranet. My question is which CISCO server, managment system should we go for as we are planning to live stream upto 10 nest box cameras? The aim is that the bird box footage will help show all visitors to the website on what happens in nest boxes.If anyone can help, many thanks in advance. Phil J

I have this problem too.

Hi Phil,

Are all these bird boxes/cameras in one area? If yes, you connect the cameras to encoders and the encoders connects to a switch via 10/100/1000 copper. The switch could be a 3560 or a 3750 with 48 ports 10/100/1000 copper and  depending on the model 2 fiber 1Gig or 10Gig uplinks.

You would need to run Multicast to stream the data from the cameras to a web server.
