    *Tips:

  • 30 frames per second is real time. At 3 - 5 frames per second recording youwill not miss any activity
    (remember this is per second)

  • There is no real need to record in real time unless there are regulatory reasons as in case of government
    facilities or casinos

  • Traditional analog systems record at 1 frame per second
