    A customer contacted CCTV Camera Pros and asked if Geovision surveillance systems support using an external USB 2.0 hard drive for video surveillance storage.

    The answer is yes, Geovision can interface with any type of storage that is accessible and can be mapped by the Windows operating system that is being used on the Geovision DVR. However, you want to keep in mind that you must calculate the the bandwidth / data throughput that the USB drive is capable of receiving and calculate the amount of throughput that will be required by the IP and CCTV cameras that will be recording to that drive. You can check the amount of bandwidth that the cameras on the system require but using the built in utility on the GV-System. Each cameras settings are different, but the tool will give you an average what the total throughput is.

    CCTV Camera Pros is an authorized distributor for Geovision. Please post any additional questions or comments about this topic on this support forum thread.

    Thank You.
