Selecting the model that is right for you

There are several factors that will affect your selection of the correct network recording system; quantity of analog cameras, quantity of IP cameras, future expansion needs, archive time (30, 60, 90, 180 days), image recording rate, image recorded (CIF, 2CIF, 4CIF, D1, megapixel), and anticipated activity level in the field of the cameras to name a few variables. Calculations need to be done to make sure the NVR selected will meet your needs.
