Recommended Media Format
Because it is best to upload video in its original format, the recording settings
should match the recommended format and resolution. This way the digital file
created when you record will meet the suggested specifications without any
additional effort or conversion on your part.
•
Bitrate: To ensure your video meets the file size requirements, we
recommend a video bitrate of 256Kbps. Candidate seeking to increase
the visual quality of their video clips may use higher bitrate settings, but
please be aware that this will result in a larger file which may exceed the
file size requirement or be more difficult to upload.
•
File Size: The target file size is 200–300 MB or less.
Note: Each portfolio system may have additional constraints or
requirements regarding video formats and file sizes. You may need to use
video tools to compress or transcode your video into smaller file sizes to
facilitate uploading of the video. The Pearson ePortfolio System file size
limit is 500 MB.
•
Resolution: To achieve the target file size, be sure to set the proper
resolution before you start recording. Commonly used lower resolutions
like "320 x 240" and "640 x 480" will yield the best results. Higher
resolutions and "HD quality" will produce file sizes too large to be
conveniently uploaded, and should be avoided.
•
Frame Rotation: We recommend shooting video in landscape aspect
ratio.
•
Frame Rate: We recommend shooting in or encoding to 24 (23.98), 25,
or 30 (29.97) fps. 30 fps is common.
•
Pixels: Non-square (anamorphic) pixels are handled automatically.
•
Deinterlace: Interlaced videos are handled automatically.
•
Keyframes: Keyframes can be set to automatic on device.
