Live streams transcoding. Transcoded file bitrates for different qualities

Transcoding is the video file parameters conversion.

It includes not only changing the protocol but also splitting a stream into lower qualities with a suitable bitrate.

 Video Quality 

 Resolution 

 Bitrate after transcoding 

4k

3840x2160

12 Mbps

2k

2048 x 1080

8 Mbps

1080

1920x1080

6 Mbps

720

1280x720

2 Mbps

480

854x480

0.8 Mbps

360

640x360

0.4 Mbps

 
Important! We also change the incoming stream bitrate, based on a standard set of bitrates that are optimal for each resolution.

For example, if you send a stream in 1080p with a bitrate less or more than 6 Mbps, we will convert it to standard 6 Mbit.

Please note! To launch a Live stream in 4K or higher quality, write to us in the chat, at support@gcore.com or contact your manager. 

We also support:

  • transcoding with the original bitrate,  
  • transcoding to any bitrate on request 
  • splinting into non-standard resolutions (for example, 1440p QHD or 4320p 8k FUHD).  

To configure, write to support@gcore.com or to your manager.
