With a user-definable compression rate of 2Mbps to 150Mbps, the H.264 UVTX/UVRX card set gives customers the ability to fine tune network bandwidth vs. video quality to meet their own unique needs. The H.264 encoder operates in one of two different modes; either One GOP (Group of Pictures) or Multi-GOP modes. As part of the H.264 video compression standard, the GOP structure specifies how intra- and inter-frames are encoded. The three frame types used for encoding are I-frames (an independently coded picture), B-frames (bi-predictive coded picture), and P-frames (predictive coded picture).
