Hard drive question

Postby Engineer9662 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 8:39 am

Bit of a newbie question here.....just curious

My Hikvision dvr was running five eye ball style dome cameras of different brands and qualities and I was getting around 13 days on the hard drive.

A few months back I swapped them all for Hikvision 2mp cameras, (which are giving a much better image) the noticed i had around eighteen days stored on the hard drive.

Do the Hikvision cameras compress the image differently? Or are newer cameras just better than older ones?
I haven’t changed the fps or any other settings that I’m aware of btw.
