I'm having trouble finding a camera that supports 4K resolution and H.265 recording under ONVIF Profile. There are plenty of cameras that support H.265 with their own proprietary recording software or hardware NVR, but I can't find any that support H.265 encoding under ONVIF. The amount of space required to save 30 days of storage under H.264 for 12 cameras recording 4K at 15 frames per second is over 110 terabytes. With H.265, the storage space falls to less than 15 terabytes according to Synology.
We purchased one Honeywell H4D8PR1 to evaluate however quickly realized the ONVIF Profile only supports H.264 unless we purchase Honeywell's proprietary NVR.
Possibly interested in Mobotix's new Move line, however again it only supports H.264.
Also, any input on 4 MP resolution at 30 fps vs 8 MP resolution at 15 fps? Which is better or it depends on the application?
Application: We are looking at up to 12 dome cameras for a food manufacturing facility. The purpose of the installation is for food safety prevention under new FDA regulations.
Prefer buying outside of China although the Honeywell is almost certainly made by an OEM.
