Still and motion image data size WV Series (i-PRO SmartHD) JPEG Data size for 1 second of motion images(images only), Data format: JPEG MPEG-4 Data size for 1 second of motion images(images only), Data format: MPEG-4 resolution (dot) Low size(KB) Normal size(KB) Fine size(KB) Super Fine size(KB) resolution (dot) MPEG-4 bitrate(kbps) Data size/hour(MB) 640 x 480 2,048 900 2048x1536 144 384 787 883 320 x 240 1,024 450 1920x1080 96 250 518 576 1280 x 960 58 154 307 346 640 x 480 26 52 103 138 320 x 240 10 29 48 53 * JPEG Data Size The approximate recording capacity is calculated by using the following formula: Size (KB) x Frame rate (images/sec) x Recording time (sec) Example • The calculation for a 1-hour recording of 640 x 480 resolution images at a frame rate of 5 images/sec in Normal mode is as follows: 52 KB x 5 images/sec x 3,600 sec (1 hour) = 936,000 KB 914 MB • In case of images with voices, 4 KB is added per each second: 936,000 KB + 4 KB x 3,600 sec = 950,400 KB 928 MB * A version upgrade from BB-HNP11 and BB-HNP15 is not supported. * Camera control depends on the control specifications supported by the network camera. * The number of camera units allowed for simultaneous recording varies depending on the PC performance. H.264 Data size for 1 second of motion images(images only), Data format: H.264 resolution (dot) 1920x1080 1280 x 960 640 x 480 320 x 240 fps 30 15 30 15 30 15 30 15 H.264 bitrate(kbps) 4096 3072 2,048 1,536 1,024 768 512 384 Data size/hour(MB) 1800 1350 900 675 450 338 225 169 * MPEG-4 bit rate: This depends on the value set at the camera for MPEG-4 bit rate for image distribution. The approximate recording capacity is calculated by using the following formula: MPEG-4 bit rate (Kbps)/8 bits x time (sec). Example • The calculation for 640 x 480 resolution images at an MPEG-4 bit rate of 2048 Kbps is as follows: 2048 Kbps/8 bits x 3,600 seconds (1 hour) = 921,600 KB 900 MB • In case of images with voices, 4 KB is added per each second: 921,600 KB + 4 KB x 3,600 sec = 936,000 KB 914MB * H.264 bit rate: This depends on the value set at the camera for H.264 bit rate for image distribution. The approximate recording capacity is calculated by using the following formula: H.264 bit rate (Kbps)/8 bits x time (sec). Example • The calculation for 640 x 480 resolution images at an H.264 bit rate of 1536 Kbps is as follows: 1536 Kbps/8 bits x 3,600 seconds (1 hour) = 691,200 KB = 675 MB • In case of images with voices, 8 KB is added per each second: 691,200 KB + 8 KB x 3,600 sec = 720,000 KB 704MB Important - Safety Precaution: carefully read the operating instructions and installation manual before using this product. • Design and specifications are subject to change without notice.

For host-side PCs installed with BB-HNP17, access is possible using a web browser for monitoring and checking of recorded data. It is not necessary for BB-HNP17 to be installed in the client-side PC. Three levels of access authority can be set for users, and administrator authority configurations can be set, including the addition of new image recording conditions. Time-specified Color Night View (CNV) / Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) Time-specified Color Night View (CNV) / Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) can be set using a timer. Cameras are switched between normal and CNV / ABS modes from HNP17. By switching between normal mode for bright daylight conditions, and ABS for nighttime when there is darkness, camera images can be recorded or monitored using the most appropriate mode for a given time period. Timer for automatic switching between modes BB-HNP17 (Server) Router Internet Web browser (client) * The first time the server is accessed via a client PC web browser, the remote client recording program is automatically downloaded and installed. * When used with H.264, the accessing client-side PC must also have an H.264 user license (BB-HCAB). * When used with MPEG-4, the accessing client-side PC must also have an MPEG-4 user license (BB-HCA5). * Internet Explorer (Windows version) is the only web browser supported. * When BB-HNP17 (server) is accessed through the Internet using a web browser, a setting is necessary to permit access by an outside computer installed with HNP17. Detection by sensors mounted on network cameras can be used to activate recording. There is also a built-in timer recording function to start and end recording at preset times. By combining these functions, it is possible for sensor-activated recording to operate only within preset time periods. Recording and monitoring of high resolution 2,048x1,536 (JPEG), 1,920x1,080(H.264) camera images are possible.
