What’s Video Bitrate

In video streaming, bitrate refers to the number of bits that are conveyed or processed in a given unit of time. This affects the quality of the personalized videos you automatically create with Pirsonal.

Bitrate is commonly measured in bits per second (bit/s, bps). It often includes a prefix, such as ‘kilo’, ‘mega’, ‘giga’, or ‘tera’, although in Pirsonal’s user interface we do not use a prefix.

One kilobit per second (kbit/s) is the equivalent of 1000 bits per second. One megabit per second (mbit/s) equals 1000 kbit/s.

In personalized video creation, a higher bitrate accommodates higher image quality in video output.

Bitrate for HD video, for example, is usually in the range of 5-20 Mbps. Standard-definition is typically 1-6 Mbps. A high quality web video runs at about 2 Mbps.
