    You cannot do continuous high resolution video recording without incurring huge storage requirements. I have worked with such systems, and if you want higher resolution, the trade off is you have to go with a freeze-frame approach (i.e. 1 picture per second). Does FBI Headquarers use hi-res video? Probably. Can the average school afford it? No.

    Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!

      is only a couple of gigabytes so a single standard 4TB hard drive should be able to hold around 2,000 hours of HD video just fine.  Or if you want more redundancy then software RAID-6 array would be just fine which isn't that expensive.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
