KB01232 - OmniStream™ Encoding Bit-Rate Tab Explained

Subject: OmniStream™ Encoding Bit-Rate

In telecommunications and computing, bit rate (sometimes written bitrate or as a variable R) is the number of bits that are conveyed or processed per unit of time.

The bit rate is quantified using the bits per second unit (symbol: "bit/s"), often in conjunction with an SI prefix such as "kilo" (1 kbit/s = 1000 bit/s), "mega" (1 Mbit/s = 1000 kbit/s), "giga" (1 Gbit/s = 1000 Mbit/s) or "tera" (1 Tbit/s = 1000 Gbit/s). The non-standard abbreviation "bps" is often used to replace the standard symbol "bit/s", so that, for example, "1 Mbps" is used to mean one million bits per second.

To Change the OmniStream™ Encoding Bit-Rate settings:

  1. Login into AMS
  2. Select the OmniStrean™ Encoder unit you wish to modify it encoder Bit-Rate:                        
  3. The OmniStream™ unit options will appear, please select the “Encoding” Tab:      


4. Default Bit-Rate for Encoder 1 (and Encoder 2 if a dual encoder is in use) is 900 Mbps, The Default Bit-Rate is the optimal one for 4K sources, for 1080P sources you may lower the Bit-Rate and set the Encoder to send out 450 Mbps.

5. Adjust the Bit-Rate to the desired one and click “Save”, there is no need to restart the Encoder or it session as this value will affect the unit in real-time:
