Does IPVM Have A Storage Calculator? What Calculator Should I Use?

John,

Have you considered creating a storage calculator that would use the specific camera model, retention time, resolution, codec, FPS, and bitrate to determine storage requirements? I am guessing there are slight differences in the VMS used as well on storage size?

Follow up question.... Is there already a calculator available that users on this site have found to be accurate and has the ability to a wide variety of camera models?
