Calculator Tools


Design installations more efficiently using the online calculator tools that make it easier to determine specifications for storage, bandwidth and camera settings.


Design Tools for Determining Bandwidth in our Video Management Software Solutions:

Valerus bandwidth storage calculator: Estimate bandwidth and storage needs for your next surveillance project with this interactive excel-based tool. Our easy to use calculator helps you plan how to use our wide range of cameras with our Valerus software solution.*

ViconNet bandwidth storage calculator: Estimate bandwidth and storage needs for your next surveillance project with this interactive excel-based tool. Our easy to use calculator helps you plan how to use our wide range of cameras and our ViconNet software solution.*


Design Tools for Vicon Cameras:

HDExpress calculator: Handy table will help you estimate the amount of hard drive storage required which will assist you in determining programming for our popular HDExpress NVR.

Resolution and frame rate sample video clips: These H.264 video clips demonstrate the quality of video recorded at varying resolutions and frame rate settings. Use them to help determine the most appropriate recording settings for your specific needs.


Design Tools for IQeye Cameras by Vicon:

Note: Some of these tools can also be used with select Vicon cameras.

IQeye frames-per-second calculator: Determine what frame rate is necessary for your system.

IQeye green calculator: Determine how using the IQeye Sentinel Series by Vicon can help save money.

IQeye image calculator: Determine what resolution and frames per second can produce the appropriate number of images for specific surveillance needs.

IQeye pixels-per-foot calculator: Determine the necessary resolution based on pixels-per-foot to evaluate what type and how many high definition, megapixel cameras are needed for surveillance coverage.

IQeye storage calculator: Determine how different camera types, settings and recording options can affect the amount of storage needed.*

IQeye forensic field-of-view calculator: Determine the approximate field-of-view (degrees) needed to achieve desired detail, depending on where the camera is mounted.

*Storage Calculator Disclaimer:

Storage calculations are an estimate of required storage capacity based on several assumptions that effect the total storage needed for a specific situation.  This storage calculator was created to help make the best estimate possible based on those assumptions.  However, due to the inaccurate nature of these assumptions and their potential impact on the storage needed, Vicon takes no responsibility for any inaccuracies or shortfalls in necessary storage.
