MicroSD Cards for OpenEye cameras

OpenEye cameras can support an internal MicroSD memory card to accommodate video storage on the camera, which is for temporary storage in case the connectivity is lost to the NVR when the camera still has power. Below are general storage capacity specs for the 128GB and 512GB MicroSD cards. This article will also give a walk-through for installing a MicroSD card on an OpenEye camera.

  • 128GB MicroSD
    • A 128GB memory card should hold up to 24 hours of footage at 1080p at 4k resolution. That data rate must be 8.85MB/s for this to happen. A standard 128GB memory card can hold up to 48 hours of film at 720p at 4k resolution. A data rate of roughly 4.42MB/s is also required.
  • 512GB MicroSD
    • A 512GB SD card can hold up to 48 hours of video using lower resolutions like 1080p and 720p. Shooting in higher video quality, 4K, lowers the amount of video your memory card can hold because of larger file sizes.
  1. To configure a MicroSD Card, locate the recommended size MicroSD Card for the camera in the table below. If your camera model is not in the table below, see your camera manual and specifications.
