Network upgrade needed?

The last two videos show data packet loss with the blocky video. I imagine charlie card swipe transactions are prioritized over video udp streams, so they lose. Security fixes to combat counterfeit charlie cards have likely increased data and made fast response vital. More and more (unbuffered) video feeds then compete for bandwidth left over and suffer. Anybody know the specifications on the cameras? What compression is used? Protocol? Data rate? buffering? How about the network segments - feed and uplink speeds?
