What bitrate do I need to upload the 360 video in live?

Optimal bitrates are automatically computed by Vahana VR according to your panorama size and framerate.

Typically required bitrate would be:

  • 5000-6000 kbps for a 2k stream
  • 11000-12000 kbps for a 4k stream

You will not need very high bitrates for the following reasons:

  1. Most of the time, there are no or very few cuts in a 360 video.
  2. The content of the movie is very often quite static, there is no camera panning for instance. 

For these reasons, the inter-frame compression works very well and allows smaller bitrate than a standard video.

If you have a moving 360 camera, you can multiply this value by a factor of about 2 depending on the movement.
