Consumer Digital Video Library

Project Description

The PSCR program provided video samples to the Consumer Digital Video Library. These are samples we create to conduct our own testing for the purposes of establishing video quality performance standards. These samples are shared with the public to support others researching video performance for public safety or other applications. Firefighters working to extinguish a burning structure
