Video bitrate calculator

Uncompressed bitrate

  • Megapixels: 8.3 MP (8,294,400 pixels)
  • Aspect ratio: 1.78:1 (HD 16:9)
  • 1 frame of RGB 3x8bit: 24.9 MB (8.3 MP x 24 bits)
  • Interlaced: 25 fps x 24.9 MB x 50% (interlacing) = 2.49 Gbps = 311 MB/s
  • Progressive: 25 fps x 24.9 MB = 4.98 Gbps = 622 MB/s
  • Longer durations: 37.3 GB/min = 2.24 TB/hr
