CIVND1 1.0: Video Compression Technologies

CIVND1 is focused on the Chief Collaboration Officer or telecommunications administrator responsible for the knowledge to describe characteristics of video solutions and assess the requirements for a successful implementation of a video solution.


Expected Duration
78 minutes

Video uses a much larger amount of storage and bandwidth than other data technologies. This course shows some of the ways you can store and send video using compression. The course will help you understand compression and how it is performed for video. It also covers analog technologies and leads into digital technologies for supporting video. It is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Cisco exam Implementing Cisco Video Network Devices, Part 1 (CIVND1) v1. This exam counts toward the CCNA Collaboration certification.
