What is difference between baseline, main, and high profile for the Sarix IXE series network IP cameras?
Sarix IXE series- All versions
Information regarding the differences between the Baseline, Main, and High profiles is needed.
The profile defines the subset of bit stream features in an H.264 stream, including color reproduction and additional video compression. It is
important that the selected profile is compatible with the recording device so that a stream can be decoded and viewed.
Baseline: A simple profile with a low compression ratio. A baseline profile is compatible with more recorders but uses more bits to compress
quality video than the other profiles. This profile supports I-frames and P-frames. Use the baseline profile in applications with limited scene
changes; for example, an indoor scene with a single, unchanging primary light source and minimal motion.
Main: An intermediate profile with a medium compression ratio. Main is the default profile setting. This profile is compatible with most
recorders and uses fewer bits to compress video than the baseline profile; however, it uses more bits than the high profile. The main profile
supports I-frames, P-frames, and B-frames.
High: A complex profile with a high compression ratio. This is the primary profile for high-definition television applications; for example this is
the profile adopted for Blu-ray and HD-DVD. The high profile supports I-frames, P-frames, and B-frames.
