Gigastrand NVR Storage Matrix


“How much can my NVR hold?” is the most common question we get, yet the answer is not as straightforward as we would like to think. It depends on how much storage, how many cameras, what resolution they run at, how much motion is on those cameras, etc.

So, for the last year, we have been studying our systems in the real world to come up with an average storage matrix. Your results will vary depending on the aforementioned variables.
