The number of days the system should retain recordings.
A rough estimate of the number of hours the system will be in use per day. For most scenarios, the system will be in constant use.
Depending on the scale of the surveillance area, multiple feeds may be needed to cover a larger area.
H.264 encoders reduce data usage by analyzing differences between frames and creating "inter frame predictions".
In most cases, this method offers a higher compression rate than MJPEG, which in turn reduces bandwidth cost, however it requires better decoding capability on the client PC.
The level of detail that can be shown in an image. The higher the resolution, the more you will see in the frame of a picture.
Determines the clarity and compression of the recorded video. Lower quality means higher compression, however can lead to a blurry image.
1-9 FPS Low level activity areas such as an entrance door or parking lot.
10-20 FPS Intermediate motion where no specific detailed information is required.
21-30 FPS Captures fast moving objects and objects close to camera that need to be free from motion blur.
