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 (bit/s or bps) unit, often in conjunction with an SI prefix such as kilo- (kbit/s or kbps), mega- (Mbit/s or Mbps), giga- (Gbit/s or Gbps) or tera- (Tbit/s or Tbps). Note that, unlike many other computer-related units, 1 kbit/s is traditionally defined as 1,000 bit/s, not 1,024 bit/s, etc., also before 1999 when SI prefixes were introduced for units of information in the standard IEC 60027-2.

    … stabilization methods with a new “deformed rotation” motion model to make shaky 360 videos incredibly smooth so that they’re easier to watch with less chance of motion sickness. It improves efficiency, with a 10 percent to 20 percent reduction in bit rate for the same video quality. And it’s fast—it can stabilize video in less than 22 milliseconds per…
