NVS-25 / NVS-30
Encode Settings Guide
Which settings are best for your NVS-25 and NVS-30? There are no specific settings for every user and application, though the factory default settings are a good starting point.
Note that settings vary depending on your CDN and network connection, so you will need to experiment for best results.
Internet Protocols can be confusing at first, so it helps to understand the basics and how it relates to your network connection and encoder. Please take a look at our Streaming Terminology Guide.
Application Layer: RTSP, RTMP, HTTP, etc.
Transport Layer: TCP, UDP, HLS, etc.
|RTSP||LAN Point to Point||Low|
|RTMP||Push to CDN||Lower|
|HLS||Web Player||Moderate to High|
Example: Talk Show VS. Fast-Moving Sports
The more movement in your video source, the harder the encoder has to work, and the more data it needs to push to deliver a quality H.264 encoded video stream.
|Talk Show||Basketball Game|
|720p60 Bitrate||1500 Kbit/s CBR||3000 Kbit/s CBR|
|1080p30 Bitrate||3000 Kbit/s CBR||5000 Kbit/s CBR|
|720p60 Profile||Main 3.1||Main 3.1|
|1080p30 Profile||High 4.0||High 4.0|
|GOP Structure||IBBP (HLS & RTSP only)||IPPP (aka IP)|
|Audio||128 Kbit/s Mono||128 Kbit/s Mono|
