Compress Convert 4K HEVC Monitor Surveillance Videos with Hardware Acceleration

Fast compress convert 4K HEVC surveillance videos with best hardware accelerated 4K HEVC/H.265 video converter.

This is a guide on how to convert 4K HEVC monitor video to MP4 (H.264) for wider playback and compress 4K HEVC monitor videos to 1080p/720p to save storage.

4K Video Surveillance System
With 4K resolution being prevailing, many producers offer high-end 4K IP network security cameras, 4K surveillance video recorders (DVR or NVR kits), and 4K monitors. It's true that 4K video surveillance system consumes a high cost but it really delivers the best-ever video image quality than 1080p/720p HD surveillance system. A single 4K security camera can capture video in ultra-high 4K picture quality for detailed, wide-area monitoring, which also means fewer cameras to be used.

4K IP camera system favors to use the HEVC/H.265 video compression codec instead of its predecessor H.264 to encode 4K video, aiming to reduce the 4K file size by half without sacrificing the 4K video quality, thus, to relieve the burden of bandwidth and reduce the storage of hard disk/cloud service.

Why Compress Convert 4K HEVC Monitor Video
1. Playback issue: Though 4K resolution and HEVC codec will become more prevalent along with technology rapid developing, the H.264 codec is still the current dominant codec which is widely applied by most players and devices. Many devices/media players have trouble in playing 4K HEVC surveillance videos due to compatibility or slow decoding. Some popular media players like VLC may still crash when decoding and playing large 4K HEVC videos.

2. Storage/backup problem: Video surveillance requires long time video recording and storing, and this emphasizes much on video storage devices. Even if 4K video surveillance system uses the highly compressed HEVC codec to encode video, the recorded 4K videos are still very large. Specifically, 1 minute 4K 30fps HEVC video recorded by 4K IP security camera is about 250MB.

Application of Hardware Acceleration for 4K Video Surveillance System

Before converting and compressing 4K HEVC monitor video with WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe, here we'll explain why hardware acceleration is such important in 4K video surveillance system. Dealing with large (4K) videos often occupies much CPU (up to 100%) and your computer may crash and fail to successfully decode and play, convert and compress the 4K surveillance video. By applying hardware acceleration tech (Intel QSV, Nvidia CUDA/NVENC, AMD) in 4K video decoder & encoder program, decoding and playing 4K monitor video is much faster than using software decoder & encoder, and the CPU usage is reduced at least 50%.

Therefore, a hardware-accelerated video converter like WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is essential in 4K HEVC monitoring video converting and compressing. It will deliver a fast and smooth video conversion process.
