Definitions for "Bit-rate"
Keywords:  throughput, playback, asca, vbr, mbits
Measured as "bits per second," and used to express the rate at which data is transmitted or processed. The higher the bitrate, the more data that is processed and, typically, the higher the picture resolution. Digital video formats typically have bitrates measured in megabits-per-second (Mbps). (One megabit equals one million bits.) The maximum bitrate for DVD playback is 10 Mbps; for HDTV it's 19.4 Mbps.
The speed with which information was sent from ASCA to the ground. Can be either ``high'', ``medium'', or ``low''.
The rate at which digital information is transmitted, usually measured in Mbits/s.
Keywords:  binary, sample, blocks, digit, recorded
