What is the impact of resolution on storage space requirements?

0 minutes, 41 seconds Read

The impact of resolution on storage space requirements is significant. Higher resolution videos, such as 4K or 8K, require more storage space compared to lower resolution videos, such as 720p or 1080p. This is because higher resolution videos have more pixels, which means more information needs to be stored. For example, a 1080p video has 2.25 times fewer pixels compared to a 4K video, and thus requires 2.25 times less storage space.

It’s important to consider the storage requirements when choosing the resolution of your video footage. Higher resolution videos may provide better image quality, but they also require more storage space, which can become expensive and impractical in certain situations. It’s recommended to balance the desired resolution with the available storage capacity and cost considerations.
