Join Product Engineer Garrett Swindell in part 2 of 4 of our Understanding Video Compression Series to learn about the two methods of video compression and the differences between them. In this video, we will look at:

  • The impact of lossy and lossless compression on bandwidth consumption
  • How the two compression schemes affect image quality
  • Determining the relationship between image quality and bandwidth consumption
  • How your choice of is influenced by latency
  • When to use lossy compression or lossless compression for your AV or KVM application
