Bit Rate Type: There are two options: “Variable” and “Fixed”.
If you select variable bit rate, DVR will adjust the actual bit rate according to the video
movement. When there is not much movement, DVR will use low bit rate, when there is much
movement, DVR will use high bit rate. In this case, DVR can save HDD usage and network
bandwidth.
If you select fixed bit rate, DVR will use the fixed bit rate to compress image. The bit rate
size is defined in “Max Bit Rate” option. In this case, we can calculate the recorded file size and
network bandwidth that we need.
Max Bit Rate: If you select variable bit rate, when the video input has great movement, we
need to limit the max bit rate. The max bit rate has the following options (bps): 32K, 48K, 64K,
80K, 96K, 128K, 160K, 192K, 224K, 256K, 320K, 384K, 448K, 512K, 640K, 768K, 896K, 1M,
1.25M, 1.5M, 1.75M, 2M and “User define”.
The max bit rate selection is related to resolution. If you select high resolution, you must
select high bit rate. For CIF resolution, the typical max bit rate is 384K-768Kbps. For DCIF
resolution, the typical bit rate is 512K-1Mbps. For 4CIF resolution, the typical bit rate is
1.25Mbps-1.75Mbps. Of course, you will select the proper max bit rate based on the camera,
background and image quality requirement.
Bit rate: You can select bit rate size for fixed bit rate type. It is the same as “Max Bit Rate”.
Image Quality: If you select variable bit rate type, you can define image quality. There are 6
options: Highest, Higher, High, Average, Low and Lowest. High image quality needs high bit rate
size.
Frame Rate: Frames per second. Options are: Full (PAL is 25 FPS and NTSC is 30FPS), 20,
16, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16. For low frame rate, you can select low bit rate size.
PreRecord Time: When you enable motion detection recording or external alarm recording,
you can define prerecord time. The options are: No PreRecord, 5 Seconds (default selection), 10
Seconds, 15 Seconds, 20 Seconds, 25 Seconds, 30 Seconds and Max PreRecord.
MaxPreRecord is to save all data in PreRecord buffer. The PreRecord time is related with bit
rate. The lower bit rate, the longer PreRecord time is.
If the bit rate (Max bit rate) is very low, and you select “PreRecord Time” as “5 Seconds”,
maybe the actual perrecord time is more than 5 seconds. On the other side, if the bit rate is high,
and set “PreRecord Time” as “30 Seconds”, the actual pre-record time is less than 30 seconds.
PostRecord Time: When external alarm or motion alarm is stopped, DVR will continue
recording time. The options are: 5 Seconds (default), 10 Seconds, 30 Seconds, 1 Minute, 2
Minutes, 5 Minutes and 10 Minutes.

6.141 Accessing the DVR over a network
To access the DVR through a computer you need to make sure the default gateway on
the DVR is the same IP address as your router, and the first three sets of numbers of the DVR
IP address are the same as the first three sets of numbers of router’s address. Example: if your
router’s default gateway is 192.168.1.1 then the default gateway setting in the DVR should be
192.168.1.1, and the first three sets of numbers on the DVR's IP address should be 192.168.1.
The last set of numbers has to be different then those on any other devices attached to the
router to avoid conflicts. The subnet on the DVR also needs to be the same as the router,
example: if the subnet on the router is 255.255.255.0 the subnet on the DVR needs to be
255.255.255.0. To get the default gateway and subnet of the router, on a computer that is
attached to the same router as the DVR, click on the start button, then click on run, then enter
cmd into the box and click on OK. At the curser type ipconfig, the default gateway and subnet
will be displayed.

channel needed for every hour, unit Mbyte.
qi = d i ¸ 8 ´ 3600 ¸ 1024
(1)
In the formula: d i means the bit rate, unit Kbit/s
Step 2: After video time requirement is confirmed, according to Formula (2) to calculate the
storage capacity mi , which is storage of each channel needed in Mbytes.
mi = qi × hi × Di
(2)
In the formula:
hi means the recording time for each day (hour)
Di means number of days for which the video shall be kept
Step 3: According to Formula (3) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is needed for
all channels in the DVR during scheduled video recording.
c
q T = å mi
(3)
i =1
In the formula: c means total number of channels in the DVR
Step 4: According to Formula (4) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is needed for
all channels in DVR during alarm video recording (including motion detection).
c
qT = å mi ×a%
i =1
In the formula:a% means alarm occurrence rate
