CQP

CQP stands for constant quality profile. It is a rate control method used to determine how a broadcast or recording is encoded.

The advantage of CQP is that the encoder will allow as much bitrate as necessary to meet the defined quality settings, ensuring consistent video quality throughout the entire recording. This rate control method is best used for recording content where a consistent video experience is desired. Be warned: CQP video file size can be very large.
