[GOP Structure]

For MPEG, a certain number of frames is considered as a group, and operations such as compression/enlargement and cut editing are performed on a GOP basis. A GOP comprises “I frame”, “P frame” and “B frame”. The I frame allows images to be reproduced independently, the P frame is for recording and reproducing only the differences with the preceding image, and the B frame reproduces images from the differences in the preceding and following images. Select I, P and B frame patterns of the GOP from the list. Normally, select [IBBP].

[I-Frame Only] is comprised of only I-pictures. Editing is made easier, but the amount of data increases in size.

[Picture count]
