Yesterday I had visited a CCTV system integrator. He said his business partner is a computer game. I looked at him blankly. He pointed at a PC which is hosting a DVR card and continued, “he is fun to be with but he is not contributing to the company but consuming our company resources.”

I dunno about his business partner part but I agreed with him that a dedicated PC is a must for a PCI DVR card. Game or any other PC software like accounting software, POS software etc will definitely consume the PC resources and affect the DVR performance.

To put it in a better perspective, a computer game to a DVR PC server is like a parasite to an animal or plant. It obtains nourishment from the host without benefiting the host.
