What is Stereoscopic Video?

Stereoscopic video, also called 3D video, brings viewers into a world beyond the flat screen. Instead of presenting an image moving on a flat screen (like a normal 32" or "43" inch TV would), stereoscopic video creates depth and we humans experience this depth through depth perception in our natural vision. By presenting slightly different video feeds to each eye, stereoscopic video re-creates the 3-D perception on a flat screen, and gives us very realistic three dimensional images that can be viewed without any special eyeglasses!Depth perception comes naturally for humans and its one of the prime reasons that we've survived and...

What is 1080p?

1080p is a video quality standard (one of the highest resolutions in HD video rendering) characterized by the display resolution of 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels tall. The term 1080p usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a horizontal (display) resolution of 1920 pixels. 1080p is also called FHD or Full HD and is classified as an HD resolution because it displays at least 720 vertical lines, meaning that horizontal resolution is displayed well above the 1920 pixels displayed vertically. You can see this resolution being used in mediums such as mobile phones, gaming consoles, Smart TVs, browsers, and...

What is GOP (Group-of-Pictures) In Video Compression?

GOP stands for Group of Pictures. In the field of video compression, a Group of Pictures (GOP) is a fundamental unit that determines the way in which video frames are organized and arranged for efficient video encoding. Basically, instead of encoding video frames one after the other, multiple frames are grouped together to form a GOP (Group of Pictures) so that they can be compressed and then decompressed more efficiently. Understanding GOP structure is important for video editing, streaming, or any application, such as Visionular's where we optimize video compression within H.264/AVC, HEVC, and AV1 video codecs (what is a video codec?).What is...
