The total number of IP cameras depends on analog and IP camera settings and DX8100 system resources.
You can record the maximum number of analog and IP cameras when all cameras are set to record at CIF/1 ips.

 PELCO IP CAMERA RESOURCE USAGE

The available recording resources of the DX8100 is determined by the resolution and bit rate of the attached cameras.
For example, a DX8108 with eight analog cameras recording at CIF/30 ips supports up to eleven IP110 cameras recording at CIF/15 ips.

Stream Resolution Bit Rate
Primary 4CIF/30 ips 2 Mbps
Secondary CIF/15 ips 1 Mbps

Note: Pelco standard IP cameras with Sarix™ technology and AXIS standard IP camera resolutions
and bit rates are variable. Refer to the appropriate product specification sheet for information about resource usage.
