Video bitrate calculator

Raw bitrate

  • Megapixels: 2.1 MP (2,073,600 pixels)
  • Aspect ratio: 1.78:1 (HD 16:9)
  • 1 frame of RGB 3x8bit: 6.22 MB (2.1 MP x 24 bits)
  • 24 fps x 6.22 MB = 1.19 Gbps = 149 MB/s
  • Longer durations: 8.96 GB/min = 537 GB/hr

Estimated compressed bitrates

  • Prores444 (1080p25 = 275 Mbps) (compression: 4.5:1 or 22.2%):
    265 Mbps = 33.2 MB/s = 1.99 GB/min = 119 GB/hr
  • Prores422 (1080p25 = 220 Mbps) (compression: 5.6:1 or 17.9%):
    213 Mbps = 26.7 MB/s = 1.6 GB/min = 96 GB/hr
  • REDCODE 42 Codec (compression: 7.5:1 or 13.3%):
    159 Mbps = 19.9 MB/s = 1.19 GB/min = 71.7 GB/hr
  • JPEG2000 250Mbps for 2Kp24 (compression: 7.6:1 or 13.2%):
    157 Mbps = 19.6 MB/s = 1.18 GB/min = 70.7 GB/hr
  • REDCODE 36 Codec (compression: 9:1 or 11.1%):
    133 Mbps = 16.6 MB/s = 995 MB/min = 59.7 GB/hr
  • REDCODE 28 Codec (compression: 10:1 or 10%):
    119 Mbps = 14.9 MB/s = 896 MB/min = 53.7 GB/hr
