How are the minutes calculated?

We’re applying multipliers based on output quality and resources required to create encoded files. In case where a number of multipliers are applicable they are added.
For example, when creating HD output (2x) to one of pro formats (x5) each minute will count as 10 SD minutes (10x).

Quality Multiplier Example
SD (less than 1280×720) - -
HD (1280×720 - 1920x1080) 2x 10 minutes of HD output count as 20 SD minutes
UHD (more than 1920x1080, up to 4096x2160) 4x 10 minutes of UHD output count as 40 SD minutes
4K+ (more than 4096x2160) 8x 10 minutes of 4K+ output count as 80 SD minutes
Pro Formats Multiplier Example
ProRes, XDCAM, MPEG-TS, MPEG-PS, AVC Intra, IMX 5x 10 minutes of Pro Formats SD output count as 50 SD minutes, 10 minutes of Pro Formats HD output count as 100 SD minutes
Standards Conversion Multiplier Example
Standard Video Processor 1x -
Advanced Video Processor 4x 10 minutes of FPS converted SD output count as 40 SD minutes, 10 minutes of FPS converted HD output count as 80 SD minutes
