With IP Video System Design Tool you can:


  • Increase efficiency of your security system while lowering costs finding the best camera locations

  • Calculate precise camera lens focal length and viewing angles in seconds

  • Check the field of view of each camera and find dead zones to increase the security level of your premises using 2D and 3D modeling

  • Get estimations of required network bandwidth to shape the network video systems with any number of IP cameras and video servers

  • Calculate the required HDD storage space for video archive

  • Load site plan / floor plan JPEG, PNG or BMP background images from Visio or Google Earth. ImportAutoCAD DWG drawings (Pro) or backgrunds from PDF file

  • Print or export your project to PDF.  Copy your calculations, drawings and 3D mockups to MS Word, Excel, Visio or other software to create an excellent project documentation


The only CCTV system design software with integrated network bandwidth and storage space calculation


Only with IP Video System Design Tool you can calculate both network bandwidth and storage space for 15 camera resolutions and several compression methods, including H.264, MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG. IP Video System Design Tool enables the system designer to find optimal FPS and compression that tailors to LAN capabilities and calculate required HDD storage space. Frame size estimations are based on the result of our own compression research, thanks to our extensive knowledge of compression algorithms and wide range of real-life CCTV experimental data.

IP Video System Design Tool includes field of view calculator, lens focal length calculator, CCTV storage and bandwidth calculators, megapixel camera resolution calculator and many other CCTV tools so you can design a video surveillance system quickly, easy and professionally.
