DigiFort System Specifications
GOAL OF THIS DOCUMENT
This document is to provide guidelines on minimum requirements of the hardware & software to
be used when considering, specifying and installing DigiFort IP Surveillance System.
OPEN HARDWARE
DigiFort supports and encourages the use of open hardware, meaning you can use network
switches, computers & server grade components from any brand name manufacturer that meet the
DigiFort’s minimum requirements described within this document.
RAID STORAGE
Although not required, RAID is highly recommended to prevent data-loss. DigiFort is compatible to
use with any version of raid storages. Keep in mind, RAID can improve disk read/write speeds on
heavily loaded systems (40 cameras and above per server).
Common Practice:
2 x 160GB in RAID 1 (mirror OS 160GB usable)
7 x 750GB in RAID 5 (storage vol1 4.5TB usable)
7 x 750GB in RAID 5 (storage vol2 4.5TB usable)
(drive C:\)
(drive E:\)
(drive F:\)
NOTE: How you setup and use the RAID is up to each individual and what they feel is the best
solution for their needs. Above is a simple common example of how RAID 1 & RAID 5 are
used & setup on a single 16 bay server.
All RAID types are supported, here is a list of more commonly used RAID types;
• RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 1+0, RAID 5+0, RAID 6+0
For more information on raid, please visit
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redundant_array_of_independent_disks
NETWORK ATTACHED STORAGE (NAS)
NAS is not recommended to use with DigiFort, due to fact, it adds unnecessary load onto the
network. Also, due to the multiprotocol it requires, and the reduced CPU and OS layer, the NAS has
its limitations compared to the attached storage systems. Certain NAS devices fail to expose wellknown services that are typical of a file server, or enable them in a way that is not efficient.
Examples are: ability to compute disk usage of separate directories, ability to index files rapidly
(locate), ability to mirror efficiently, and to enumerate huge file hierarchies at the nominal speed of
local drives and induces considerable network traffic.
For more information on NAS, please visit
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network-attached_storage
If you still wish to use NAS devices, ensure you have adequate bandwidth available, and even use a
secondary network card from server to free up bandwidth from the primary incoming network
card. (see NIC & Load Balancing below) Ensure that you test each NAS device for several days & that
it is storing the data properly & efficiently from DigiFort. Base your tests on continuous recording.

Windows 2003 Server (RC2 Recommended)
Windows 2008 Server
Windows XP Professional (Any Service Pack – SP3 Recommended)
Windows Vista (Home/Professional/Business)
NOTE: 64 bit Windows editions will work, although DigiFort is a 32 bit application.
BEST PRACTICE
To optimize the performance of windows read/write & hard-disk-drive read/write speeds. DO NOT
use the windows hard-drive for camera recordings. Please leave windows hard-drive just for
windows. DO NOT partition the OS hard-drive then use the partition for recording.
All recording should go to any other physical hard-drive but not the OS hard-drive.
SERVER PC REQUIREMENTS
Servers generally just record from cameras and allow connections for users. Servers are not to be
used for video viewing & playback.
NOTE:
Specifications are based on 704x576x25fps motion recording. Motion uses more CPU
power.

Keep in mind that new processors are coming out frequently and this information
will be outdated. Please use as a general guide. Generally, the CPU’s can handle
more, but it depends on other factors such as RAM, graphics card and video stream
type (jpeg/mpeg/h264/etc). We have specified a smaller amount of streams to be
safe, but the CPU’s can probably handle several more.

NETWORK REQUIREMENTS
INTRODUCTION
DigiFort IP surveillance software utilizes standard based TCP/IP networks, home to enterprise grade
switches & wireless link technologies available from variety of network product providers.
Depending on the application and network specifics, DigiFort uses the following protocols for
command and control and video transport:
• TCP/IP Unicast
• UDP/IP Unicast
• RTP/UDP/IP
• RTP/RTSP/TCP/IP
• HTTP/TCP/IP
• RTP/RTSP/HTTP/TCP/IP
• RCP +3
NETWORK DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
Common considerations that should be taken into account when designing your network:
1. SIZE AND SCOPE:
• Will DigiFort reside on a Local or Wide Area Network?
• What is the connection type between the different sites (if any)?
• Is access via the Internet required?
• Is Multicast required, or can you use unicast efficiently?
2. BANDWIDTH REQUIREMENTS:
• How many IP cameras/encoders will you connect to DigiFort?
• Will you be using dual-streaming encoders or IP cameras? If so, what is the total
number of video streams your network will need to support?
• What is the total number of multicast video streams your network will need to
support?
• Which compression formats and quality settings will your encoders/IP cameras use?
• What is the typical bandwidth utilizations associated with these settings? How will
the expected level of motion (or PTZ movement) affect those values?
• Estimate your systems expected bandwidth utilization. For large systems, consider
partitioning the network into subnets/VLANs to distribute the traffic in the most
efficiently way across switches and routers. Keeping the number of devices per
subnet to a reasonable size is generally a good thing to do; irrespective of whether
video is being deployed.
3. OTHER NETWORK USERS AND APPLICATIONS:
• What percentage of the network’s bandwidth can you “dedicate” for use by the
video security system?
• Is the network protected by a firewall?
http://www.digifort.com/
Support ASIA support.ap@digifort.com Support EUROPE support.eu@digifort.com

DigiFort System Specifications
4. DIGIFORT SERVERS/ATTACHED STORAGE CONSIDERATIONS:
• Where will the servers/storage be located?
• Will the servers have enough bandwidth when activated?
• How do I design the network with redundancy and/or fail-over?
5. POWER OVER ETHERNET CONSIDERATIONS:
• Are PoE cameras/encoders a present requirement?
• Are PoE cameras/encoders a future requirement?
• Which PoE switches to use?
6. WIRELESS CONSIDERATIONS:
• Is any part of the network wireless?
• How many channels are available per wireless access point?
• Consider Wireless link bandwidth and utilisation capacity.
7. E-MAIL REQUIREMENTS:
• Do the system’s users wish to use the e-mail notification capabilities of DigiFort? If
this is the case, the system must have access to an SMTP server.

ANTI-VIRUS TIPS
This section describes DigiFort’s recommendations for users who wish to install an anti-virus
software on a computer (client or server) running the DigiFort software. Customers should be
aware that a variety of anti-virus software is available; therefore full set of instructions can not be
provided, but only a recommendation guide.
The following recommendations below, assume that the DigiFort software is installed to the
default path set by the DigiFort Installer.
When configuring the anti-virus software
•
•
•
•
Disable the firewall included with the anti-virus software.
Configure rules for Real time scans and Scheduled scans.
Exclude the following locations for the client and server :
 The DigiFort system folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\DigiFort\)
 The Windows Paging file (e.g. C:\pagefile.sys)
Exclude the following locations for the server:
 The drives or folders used for video storage (e.g. Y:\Camera1, Z:\Cameras)
NOTE
•
•
A common mistake is configuring exclusions for Auto-Protect, and forgetting to exclude
scheduled and manual scans.
Another common mistake is specifying the wrong path to the actual DigiFort folders that
need to be excluded. For example: you may exclude “C:\Program Files\DigiFort\” when
the actual installation path is “E:\Program Files\DigiFort\”.
While the scenarios here are given with the default installation path, please remember that the
DigiFort installation path can be modified by the user during the installation.
IMPORTANT The above steps will improve read/write speeds of data to the hard-drive. Usually,
anti-virus software will scan files on read & write access, therefore disabling the
locations that get accessed frequently through DigiFort, will improve performance.

DigiFort System Specifications
WINDOWS INDEXING
To improve disk access read/write speed, it is recommended to disable windows indexing on all
storage volumes used to save camera data.
What is Indexing Service?
Indexing Service is a base service for
Microsoft® Windows® 2000 or later that
extracts content from files and
constructs an indexed catalog to
facilitate efficient and rapid searching.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/enus/library/ms689718(VS.85).aspx
Indexing puts un-necessary load on the
server, and disabling this function will
improve hard-drives read/write speed as
well as free some cpu load.
