Applies to: Reolink cameras with micro SD card or micro SD card slot.
Note: The micro SD card is only for motion detection recording.
Bitrate affects video quality and the size of recording files. In general, the higher the bitrate is, the better the image and audio quality will be, and the bigger the file size will be, vice versa.
Here is the formula that demonstrates the relationship between the SD Card Capacity, the Bitrate, and the Recording Time.
The formula shows that Recording Time is inversely proportional to Bitrate under the same SD Card Capacity.
Here are some references about the Recording Time under different Birtrate and SD Card Capacity.
|Max. BitRate/kbps||Recording Time/h|
