Vcore2 to create a wired streaming HD ip camera?

Posted: Mon Jun 12, 2017 5:36 pm
Hello forum,
I'm building a simple module and I wonder if the Vcore2 might be a viable option and/or if someone would render an opinion for me.
Right now I am planning to use a Raspberry Pi Zero because it has a dedicated camera connector. I am only just learning about linux and how these systems work together but from my understanding so far, I really just need a system to receive the camera input, and pass it onto a wired ethernet (RJ45) port for streaming. I'm not entirely clear where compression to h.264 occurs, I guess that happens on the computer module and so specifications for clock speed, memory, etc come into play, and so I will want to make sure that these numbers are adequate to smoothly and reliably stream 1080p indefinitely. If you can summarize the relevant #'s that I should pay attention to for that task I would appreciate the knowledge.

With that said, I'm not sure also if a camera port (such as the pi zero has) is specifically more useful than a standard usb port that could still accept a comparable video camera input. I don't need many ports, or wifi (my output must be wired ethernet). My application is almost the same as building a simple IP camera, but not quite.

Anyway, thanks for any information. It seems to me so far that VoCore2 is a viable candidate for this project.
Also- adding a 2nd board (ultimate) doubles the size requirement for this project. Can I solder ethernet wires directly to my Vcore2 mainboard?

current VoCore2 camera directly output h264 stream, do not need to compress.
output to wireless and wired ethernet is using same way, for mjpeg output you can use mjpeg-streamer.
