The camera can do MJPEG, H.264 and H.265, which one should I use?

The camera you have is capable of three (3) different encoding formats


  • MJPEG:

When MJPEG is selected you are limited to a single stream; this is by far not the most efficient method of encoding and is used for some broadcast situations.


  • H.264 (Recommended)

I would call this the current standard of efficiency and compatibility in encoding formats.

(Note : If your camera is an NDI model, you must set the first stream to H.264 to use the NDI function normally.)


  • H.265


This is brand new and is currently not supported by many systems however it is substantially more efficient than H.264 (Close to a 50% reduction in bandwidth)
