Video filesize calculator

Frame file size

  • Megapixels: 2.1 MP (2,073,600 pixels)
    width in pixels x height in pixels
  • Aspect ratio: 1.78
    width in pixels / height in pixels
  • Uncompressed monochrome frame (Bayer masked): 3.11 MB (2.1 MP x 12 bit/pixel)
  • Uncompressed RGB 8-bit frame: 6.22 MB (2.1 MP x 3x8 bits/pixel)
  • Uncompressed RGB 16-bit frame: 12.4 MB (2.1 MP x 3x16 bits/pixel)

Video bitrate

  • Picture size: 1920 x 1080
  • Framerate: 24 fps
  • if the same bit encoding and (lack of) video compression would be used as the one for ...file size compression (% of uncompressed)then the bandwidth for the video size you specified, would be
