10 Cameras Setup in 1 PC

Hi there,

This is Kiral. I would like to ask a question regards of the PC that we are using (recommended by depthkit)
Here is the specification:

  • The speed of the drive is determined strictly by the speed of the port.

This setup was able to support 5 cameras with a special extention cable that provided power.
However, I can only get it up to 8 cameras.
Do I need any special parts to make it support up to 10 cameras?

Have a great day

Best Regards,

@KiralPoon The Apexx S3 system spec’ed here does meet the criteria for 5-sensor (1440p) recording. To enable 10-sensor recording, the PC requires a higher-performance processor with more cores, like these listed in our Depthkit Studio Hardware Requirement documentation:

Intel Core-i9 10980XE @ 3.00GHz (found in the Boxx Apexx X4)
Intel XEON W-3323 @ 3.5 GHz (found in the Boxx Apexx W4)
