A storage and bandwidth calculator for video and audio media files. StorageCalculator is a simple way to calculate the storage and bandwidth required to store your footage. Also available as an iOS app, it contains data on a wide array of professional codecs, including ProRes, XAVC, DNxHR and RedCode.
Audio and Video Storage/Bandwidth CalculatorYou know you'll be shooting on 4 cameras for 3 hours, recording in DNxHD SQ, but how much storage do you need for all that media?
Data Rate ChooserThis tool helps you choose what data rate to use when you know you need to fit a video of a certain duration onto a drive with a certain size. Ideal for encoding MP4s to go on pen drives, but potentially useful for all sorts of jobs.
RED Camera DataNote that this calculator does not check that the combination of values you enter can actually be set up on the camera.
Copy Time EstimatorThe source and destination values below are based on a range of popular products. If your hardware does not match the speed of any of the options you can enter custom values. The device descriptions are rough guides, and actual product performance can vary based on a wide range of factors. There are a number of performance test utilities available which can measure the actual performance of your storage devices.
- 1MiB (1 "mibibyte") = 10242 bytes (1024 x 1024 bytes).
- 1GiB (1 "gibibyte") = 10243 bytes (1024 x 1024 x 1024 bytes).
- 1TiB (1 "tibibyte") = 10244 bytes (1024 x 1024 x 1024 x 1024 bytes).
