This document provides a broad reference to server bandwidth utilization on the DSSRV. The new DS NVR delivers total available throughput of 280 Mbps for recording of analog and IP video streams as well as playback and export through the DS ControlPoint client. When determining the maximum number of cameras and the desired frame rate to host on each system, the number of concurrent client connections, the number of streams likely to be viewed in playback on each client, and the bandwidth required to support the client connections must be taken into consideration.
