DVR Frames Per Second Comparison

Here's an interesting video showing the difference in frames per second (FPS) on a Digital Video Recorder (DVR). Frames per second is the rate at which each frame is displayed on the monitor. 30 fps is real time recording. The naked eye can't tell the difference between 30 and 15 fps, so 15 fps is considered virtual real time. Still taking up to much space on the DVR? Consider a lower fps rate, like 7.5 frames per second, or even 5 fps. This will still give you a fluid picture, while maximizing hard drive space. Let's take a look at what all this looks like. Enjoy
