Record 700 Cameras On A Single NVR - Claims IndigoVision

A new IndigoVision appliance claims, "Record up to 700 cameras per NVR with 2000 Mbps data throughput, seven times more than the nearest alternative."

How many maximum cameras a recorder can support is a question that comes up from time to time, with a typical max being 100 or perhaps 200.

But 700 is fairly incredible ... claim.

The appliance's specification sheet does give some tech details, such as:

  • 2000 Mbps in;1600 Mbps out; 3600 Mbps
    total
  • Storage: Direct attached, Dual redundant 6Gbps SAS
  • Drives: 3.5in Nearline SAS
  • Intel Xeon E5, 12GB RAM
