Video bitrate: DCP 2K High Frame Rate

Uncompressed bitrate

  • Megapixels: 2.2 MP (2,211,840 pixels)
  • Aspect ratio: 1.90:1 (DCI/Digital cinema)
  • 1 frame of RGB 3x8bit: 6.64MB (2.2 MP x 24 bits)
  • Interlaced: 48 fps x 6.64MB x 50% (interlacing) = 1.27Gbps = 159.25MB/s
  • Progressive: 48 fps x 6.64MB = 2.55Gbps = 318.5MB/s
  • Longer durations: 19.11GB/min = 1.15TB/hr
