The following table shows **the Number of Hours of Video that can be stored on a 256 Gigabyte drive** for different resolutions at the highest bitrate setting.

Resolution | Number of hours |
---|---|

8K | 56 minutes |

4K | 3 hours, 20 minutes |

2K | 9 hours, 28 minutes |

1080p | 18 hours, 57 minutes |

720p | 29 hours, 56 minutes |

480p | 71 hours, 6 minutes |

360p | 189 hours, 37 minutes |

As the resolution decreases the number of hours increases.

Enter

- Video resolution
- Bit Rate (Megabits per second or Mbps)

**Background**

Video resolution is the number of pixels that can be displayed. Google recommends a range of bitrates for the following resolutions:

- 8K
- 4K
- 2K
- 1080p
- 720p
- 480p
- 360p

As an example for High Frame Rate 2K (1440p) video the recommended bit rate is:

**24 Mbps**for Standard Dynamic Range**30 Mbps**for High Dynamic Range
