FLIR nDVRs are offered as compact rackmount servers that can be scales as building blocks to build more complex configurations. Each unit is sized for 20mbps effective bandwidth during 15 days continuous recording.
Easy storage capacity calculations can be done using this limit as the multiple of:
- Number of streaming channels to record
- Quality (bandwidth in Mbps) of each channel
- Number of days required for online storage
Disk capacity can be dedicated to backups to preserve critical video activity from being cycled. Backups can be transferred between nDVR units and also stored removable media as offline storage.
