CCTV edge recording: How much video can I store?

The reason for edge-based recording gaining popularity is the wider availability and lower pricing of higher capacity SD cards with 32GB being the ‘game-changer’ in terms of local storage capacity.

How much video can you store? Many parameters come into play including frame rate, resolution, motion detection and type of compression. Even with high frame rates of 30 fps, resolution of 720p (HDTV) and using a modern type of compression like H.246 significant quantities of video can be stored, typically around 9 days.
