Bitrate will affect the recording file size.
The higher the bitrate is, the better image and audio quality will be, and the bigger the file size will be.
The lower the bitrate is, the image and audio quality and file size will show the opposite results.
The way of calculating the recording file size is shown below:
Bitrate (kb/s, Bitrate/8)
24(hour, 1 day)
(PS: 1T=1024GB / 1G=1024MB / 1MB=1024KB)
Example(not consider the trigger record):
|BitRate/kbps||Total Recordings Channels||Time Length of the Video for 2TB HDD/days||Time Length of the Video for 4TB HDD/days||Time Length of the Video for 8TB HDD/days||Time Length of the Video for 12TB HDD/days|
Note: If you used the 24/7 record, then the covered days of the HDD are the days' value in the table. If you used the motion detection record, then the covered days of the HDD will be longer.
