What effect does ‘Record Settings’ have on recorded footage?
Located under the 'Mainstream Tab' are settings for improving the recorded footage.
Resolution and FPS are the two most adjusted.
Please continue to page two for more in-depth information.
Resolution measures the sharpness of the image. The higher the resolution, the sharper the image will appear. A higher resolution uses more space when storing on the HDD. Increasing the resolution will result in more information being stored on your hard drive (HDD), reducing the recording capacity.

Frames per second (FPS) is the frequency (rate) at which an imaging device produces unique consecutive images called frames. The higher the FPS, the smoother a video looks. Increasing FPS will result in more information being stored on your hard drive (HDD), reducing the recording capacity.
To adjust the FRAME RATE of recorded video:
- Find the channel that you wish to adjust the FPS.
- Scroll through the list (1 to 30) and the FPS you
wish to record on that channel.
- Select APPLY to save settings.
