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.
The speed at which bits are transmitted over the physical layer, also called signaling rate. This is quite different than throughput, which is an end measure of a network's speed.
The bit-rate will basically dictate the quality of MP3 playback. The higher the bit-rate, the better the quality. Music encoded at 128kb is average; anything less than this tends to be sub-par. However, VBR (Variable Bit-Rate encoding) allows the least amount of file storage space to be used while preserving quality; see VBR definition for more details.
The speed at which bits are transmitted, usually expressed in bits per second. With video information, in a digitized image for example, is transferred, recorded, and reproduced through the production process at some rate (bits/s) appropriate to the nature and capabilities of the origination, the channel, and the receptor
speed at which bits are transmitted over the physical layer, also called signalling rate. Quite different from throughput.
