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: 6.64 MB (2.2 MP x 24 bits)
  • Interlaced: 48 fps x 6.64 MB x 50% (interlacing) = 1.27 Gbps = 159 MB/s
  • Progressive: 48 fps x 6.64 MB = 2.55 Gbps = 319 MB/s
  • Longer durations: 19.1 GB/min = 1.15 TB/hr
