Our project includes around 200 IP cameras, currently connected in Origin/Edge configuration for security reasons, no load is expected.
As this involves a life saving application, apart from stream security we must consider: low latency and fast connect to the stream. In the current configuration the player first connect to the stream is too slow. My questions:
Should we switch to stream target configuration? Is it feasible with this amount of cameras? Will we get better or worse at stream latency?
Using a "
Persistent Mode" setup with 200 this would require a very large amount of bandwidth between Origin/Edge servers. You may be able to achieve quicker connections by using RTMP streams and the low-latency configuration described in this article:
