    Hello Sir

    I am new with nx-witness. Can we store any video along with video information coming from different source (not camera) into the NX-witness server? If it is possible please let us know the way and API ? 

    What is the difference of Nx-Witness and NX-Meta if we considering above requirement which option is suitable?

    Please elaborate and thanks in advance.   

    Best Regards

    Gentlemen,

    Our apologies for the late reply. We are working on improving our process to reply faster to questions under the support articles. 

    Mr. Duong The number of days depending on the storage in the server you use. You can estimate the required storage by using our Nx System calculator. The calculator will never be 100% precise due to the technology behind modern compression techniques like H.264 and H.265. So after a certain period of recording footage you can check the Server Setting menu, tab Storage Analytics for real world data based on your specific situation and you can adjust the storage by adding or removing disks to your system to meet the required storage retention period. The good news is that the System Calculator in general overestimates the required storage. 

    Hi John h,

    From version 4.0 onwards we offer the option of adding a Virtual Camera. I assume in this way you can achieve what you ask for. You can check THIS support article for more information regarding Virtual Cameras. 

    Regarding the difference between Nx Witness VMS and Nx Meta VMP. The VMS is suitable for production environments and the Meta VMP is a platform solely for developers to have access to the latest and greatest features and documentation to create their custom integrations, often AI-based integrations. You can't buy any licences for Meta VMP so you can't use it in a production environment.
