Video Clarity

Multi-Resolution Playback & Comparison

Playback and Comparison of Multiple Different Resolutions and Encoded Bit Rates


Venue Player equipped systems can be used to play and compare several uncompressed video formats against each other to find quality levels in several scenarios.

  • Play multiple formats in a side-by-side to determine quality that is acceptable for both original format quality and downstream encoded video quality.
  • Play 4K versus HD formats to find a known quality setting for encoding HD content that is upconverted to 4K at the TV panel.
  • Decide if a known quality video applied to a processing device is creating acceptable quality on a similar size or same display type across multiple formats.

Testing Steps

  • Record or File Import Your A/V Test Sequence or use a pre-loaded one.
  • Play the test sequence through encoding to a file, repeat ingest from the File Importer.
  • Apply alignment procedures to each sequence and its respective source material.
  • View the results in single output mode for an understanding processed video quality in each format.
  • Repeat viewing of processed versions comparing in side-by-side to the source material to decide quality level required in each format.
  • View processed versions compared between formats and monitors connected to each output for subjective quality differences.

Comparison playback in Y’CbCr via HDSDI in multiple formats is supported to each system’s individual capacity.
