What is the required storage space for archiving a 1-minute video?
- Vonage Video API
While it is challenging to provide an exact value for storing 1 minute of archive data, we conducted several tests to derive an approximate value. These results are intended as a reference point for calculating the required storage space in your setup.
Note: It is important to consider that this value may vary, either increasing or decreasing, depending on factors such as your specific use case, number of streams, frame rate, and network speed, layout etc.
All the following tests were conducted using one-to-one video interactions at 30 fps and best-fit layout.
|Archive Resolution||Archive size per minute(In MB)|
|640x480 (SD Landscape)||12|
1280x720 (HD Landscape)
1920x1080 (FHD Landscape)
480x640 (SD Portrait)
720x1280 (HD Portrait)
1080x1920 (FHD portrait)
|Publisher Resolution||Archive size per minute(In MB)|
When using individual archive, all media received at the archive server is written directly to file, without inspection or post-processing.
As a result, the archive will retain the same resolution as the original publisher's stream.
Archive size mentioned above represents the size of ZIP container file with multiple individual media files for each stream, and a JSON metadata file for video synchronisation.
