This convenient System Configuration Estimator is provided by IPVideo Corporation.
The number of cameras can be entered for several different types of cameras to develop a complete system design. Default parameters are automatically provided for FPS (frames per second), Recording Hours and Motion Percentage (if motion detection is used). These values may be adjusted by the user to match the system being considered. The Image Size values for H.264 compression are averages for streams with moderate to light motion. If the user expects heavy motion, these sizes may be increased by 50%.
Click "Update" to recalculate your design, "Reset" to return ALL values to defaults, or "Print" to create a hard copy of your design. Printing your results to a PDF is a convenient way to document them.
