project, as well as for isolated groups of IP cameras, that
is useful to estimate the load of separate network segments

are based on practical results of measuring traffic.
The results are combined in the Calculation
Patterns, which are editable text files in XML format. Pattern
files can be edited by any text editor or XML editor, for example
patterns can be created by skilled users or manufacturers (distributors)
of CCTV equipment by practical measurements of traffic for certain
equipment, scenes and compression algorithms. Different IP cameras
in one project can be assigned different patterns. The patterns
can include a list of supported IP camera models. If any model
from the list is assigned to a IP camera in the table, then
calculation for the IP camera performs according to the pattern.
Thus the maximum possible calculation accuracy can be achieved.
The patterns can contain results of traffic measurements for
some averaged scene with correction factors for its complexity
and activity, and the results of traffic measurement for real
Camera CCTV Calculator can work with different sets
of input data, depending on their availability and
required accuracy. Default values will be assigned to unused
fields. Unused columns in the table can be hidden and excluded
from the calculation. Created Table
Views can be saved and restored when needed. Thus IP Camera
CCTV Calculator can be a simple calculator for simplified calculation
only one stream from IP cameras, and a complex calculator, which
takes into account three independent streams, color, sound,
scene features, compression algorithm and hardware in use.
