Appendix B
Calculate Recording Capacity
You can calculate the size of hard disk according to the saving time and NVR recording settings. The NVR uses fixed video bit
rate. The below are the details at different settings. The used space (MB/H) = Bitrate ÷ 8× 3600 ÷ 1024.
Resolution
1080P
720P
Bit Rate
(kbps)
12M
10M
8M
7M
5M
3M
6M

Used
Space(MB/h)

3600
3150
2250
1350
2700
1800
900
450
225
The calculation format is: Total Recording capacity =Used space per hour (MB/h) (coverage rate of hard disk) ×
recording time (hour) × channel numbers
For instance, one customer set resolution to720P, frame rate to 25fps, bitrate to 2048kbps Lowest for enabling total 4 channels.
He wants the unit to record continuously in a month. Below is the calculation:
Total Recoding capacity =900 (mb/h) X 24(hours/day) X30(days) X4 (channels)= 2592000 (MB)=2531.25(GB)
Therefore, customers just install two SATA HDDs with 1.5TB, it can almost record for one month.
