I accidentally found an article which is very optimistic about Atom
performance on the task.
Here it is: http://www.asmag.com/showpost/7806.aspx
It made me hope, so again I want to give it a try on Atom.
The problem is the same - the capturing hardware.
On the next shop I can find:
1. 4channel 30fps USB capturer - exactly like one you mentioned yesterday.
2. 4channel 120fps full-size PCI capturer (different ones)
3. AOpen S180 Mini-ITX - Mini-ITX case with full-height PCI -
I forgot to mention that my next shop is kinda good one :)
Right now I have In-Win case with low profile slot:
It looks like it may be possible to fit full-size PCI card in there, but
not arbitrary one and it would require some craft.
So, I see the following options right now:
1. Get USB capturer and give it a try at 30fps.
2. Try to fit full-size PCI into existent case.
3. Upgrade the case.
P.S.: I'm not sure if it became off-topic for the list, shall we switch
to private or it's ok?

Oh, this is too pricy.
Are you talking only about cards with H/W encoding or about all low profile
multiple port capture cards?
*ALL* low profile multiple port capture cards. The good hardware
encode cards, particularly the h264 ones, run in the thousands.
