Tech Tips: Ensure Video Quality Over Constrained Datalinks

September 28, 2018

There are several ways to configure Delta Digital Video's video encoders to ensure good quality video is delivered even for severely constrained datalinks. These settings alone, or in combination, allow the user to tune the video performance for bit rates as low as 128Kbps. • Scaling / Cropping: reducing the number of processed pixels can significantly reduce the required bandwidth. Cropping can concentrate the video compression on a region of interest, providing high quality Read More >
