Sample Bayer Video Posted

I am posting this Bayer video file, because, unlike other raw video such as YUV, I found no Bayer video on google.

The hardware is in the picture attached:

  1. Camera: Smartek UCC2461C, Optical Format 2/3
  2. Lens: Theia ML410M 4-10mm
  3. The C-mount connects the camera, left half, and  the lens, the right half.

The data:

  1. Bayer RGGB 8 bit per pixel, width 520, hight 512, 10 FPS, 100 frames, 26MB.
  2. Download video here:

How to watch:

  1. ffmpeg converts Bayer to YUV, and the .yuv can be played by “YUV File Player”.
  2. The output yuv420 file, Inside100frames.yuv, has to be exact 1.5 times the size of the input bayer_rggb8 Inside100frames.bay.
  3. Here is the command: $ffmpeg -f rawvideo -vcodec rawvideo -s 520×512 -pix_fmt bayer_rggb8 -i Inside100frames.bay -vcodec rawvideo -pix_fmt yuv420p Inside100frames.yuv

This camera only records one color component for each pixel, which explains Bayer file is smaller than YUV.BayerPost
