What do the FPS figures mean in Stream?

The Stream FPS figures are provided for troubleshooting purposes. Typically, the stronger the hardware running Stream for a certain number of cameras, the higher the Stream FPS for that same number of cameras.

Here are some generalities:
– If you are processing a video file in Stream, the FPS will typically be high, in the 50-70 FPS range. That’s because Stream will process video frames as fast as possible.
– If you are processing a live camera feed with very few vehicles, the FPS will be higher than if there are a lot of vehicles in the feed.

The Stream FPS does NOT correlate with the FPS of the camera.  In other words, if your camera is set at 25 FPS, Stream does not need to be processing camera feeds at FPS to effectively capture all the vehicles.

From our tests and customer deployments, a Stream FPS of
– 4-6 is sufficient for low-traffic situations (e.g. parking management).
– 6-10 is sufficient for high-traffic situations (e.g. highway monitoring).

Again, we encourage you to test and confirm this for your specific environment. Contact us if we can help!
