Understanding Video Compression: What is it and How Does it Impact Your Image Quality and Bandwidth Consumption? (Part 1 of 4)


Today, video is everywhere. From Zoom calls to Netflix to your office video wall, it represents over 80% of the bandwidth on the internet. But, this growing bandwidth consumption can have a huge impact on the AV and KVM systems you use every day.

Join Product Engineer Garrett Swindell in part 1 of 4 of our Understanding Video Compression Series to learn how video is constructed and how compression works. In this video, we will look at:

  • How is resolution determined (480p, 720p, 1080p, and 4K)?
  • What is a frame and how is it impacted by frame rate?
  • Why is compression necessary to support high bandwidth consumption?
  • What are the two types of video compression?
