  Quantization Parameters
Single Layer H.264/AVC
(I-P-B Quant.)
(H1) = 10-10-12  (H2) = 16-16-18  (H3) = 22-22-24    (H4) = 24-24-26    (H5) = 28-28-30   
(H6) = 34-34-36  (H7) = 38-38-40  (H8) = 42-42-44    (H9) = 48-48-50 ;  No RC
Encoding Setup GxBy = Group of Picture size is x (no. frames); no. B frames in between I/P key pictures is y
Configuration file settings are explained in the corresponding technical reports.
