Image and video compression QCIF

Hello all,

Please see my attempt to answer the following question:

Q) Calculate the STORAGE REQUIRED (in megabytes) for a 10 minute QCIF
video source assuming 4:2:0 format i.e. assume that the colour components
are sub-sampled by a factor of 2 in each of the X (horizontal) and Y (vertical)

A) Assuming the following: 176 * 144 resolution, frame rate 8.33 Hz, 8 bits/pixel we would have:

Luminance component : 176 * 144 * 8 * 8.33 = 1.7 MB
Chrominance componet : (176 / 2) * (144 / 2) * 8 * 8.33 = 0.4MB

Therefore total storage of approx 2.1MB required.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

8.33Hz means 8.33 frames per second. So for ten minutes, you need one more number in there. Other than that, it looks good.
