What do you want do do, recording or monitoring?

Monitoring: Use 50 video monitors.

Recording: You can use 24 hour endless videorecorders.
If you want to use a PC I think four video sources on one PC is possible. That depends on frame rate, resolution, encoder, ....

if you want to develop an application yourself this might be very complicated using off the shelf tools.

if you need a solution check out www.dvtel.com they have a video server with full monitoring capailities of up to 70 cameras at 25fps each. but it costs money as they use special mpeg 4 encoders as well. rough estimation for 50 cameras monitoring only would be around 25US$K
