How to Record Time Lapse: Techniques and Equipment Youll Need for Recording Time-Lapse Videos
One of the most significant challenges faced by video surveillance systems is the storage of videos. Large amounts of data are generated every day, and storing this data can be costly and time-consuming. One way to increase the storage time of videos is to use time-lapse recording. This feature enables the software to capture images at specific intervals and then combine them into a video. Time-lapse recording
can significantly reduce the amount of data stored on the disk, making it easier to manage and analyze.
Video surveillance software plays a pivotal role in todays security landscape. A critical functionality it must offer is the ability for continuous recording and event-triggered recording.
For instance, traditional systems require approximately 6.5 Tb of disk space to create a continuous archive for just one 1080p IP camera over one year. This demand multiplies with the number of cameras, thereby escalating equipment and cloud storage expenses. SmartVision , with its neural network-based object detection and time-lapse recording, minimizes video archive size by hundreds of times. Cloud recording with SmartVision occurs only upon the occurrence of a specific event, allowing time-lapse recording when no event is detected.
