Exclamation-2 Acceptable Bitrate Limit w/ DA & AEC

curious as to what you guys think is the low end of acceptable bitrates when using DA & AEC.

some of my testing:

~3800kbps w/ DA & AEC (max sharp) yielded video indistinguishable from the original while watching. frame by frame comparison was indistinguishable in 95% of the frames, the other 5% being highly detailed scenes were only distinguishable if you looked very very closely; nothing you could notice while watching moving picture.

~3500kbps w/ DA & AEC (max sharp) yielded excellent quality video (almost indistinguishable) while watching. frame by frame comparison was indistinguishable in 85% of the frames, the other 15% exhibited very minor blocking, possibly noticeable while watching depending on your viewing setup.

~3200kbps w/ DA & AEC (max sharp) yielded poor results over all. blocking in most frames. noticeable while watching.

please share your experiences and test findings!

Please see compression explained in my signature.

As well, other factors like Quant need to be considered, not just bitrate.

But typically, 3500+ should be good enough, even on big screens, if the quant (compression) is low. In any event, you should use a high quality encoder rather than a transcoding solution.

You should only use genuine Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden media. Many thanks to for their supply and great service.

can you elaborate more on how quantization fits in? also, if you have numbers (or ratios) as to acceptable quantization levels in relation to bitrate it would be appreciated too!
