Video bitrate: DVD

Uncompressed bitrate

  • Megapixels: 0.4 MP (414,720 pixels)
  • Aspect ratio: 1.25:1
  • 1 frame of RGB 3x8bit: 1.24MB (0.4 MP x 24 bits)
  • Interlaced: 25 fps x 1.24MB x 50% (interlacing) = 124.42Mbps = 15.55MB/s
  • Progressive: 25 fps x 1.24MB = 248.83Mbps = 31.1MB/s
  • Longer durations: 1.87GB/min = 111.97GB/hr
