  • Publication number: 20240223763
    Abstract: Provided are an image processing device capable of performing compression processing on a video captured in each video capturing mode according to a first video capturing mode and a second video capturing mode with different capturing conditions. A possible range of a quantization parameter applied in a case where the video is compressed is made different in the first video capturing mode and the second video capturing mode with different capturing conditions. The quantization parameter is determined within a first range in a case of the first video capturing mode, and the quantization parameter is determined within a second range narrower than the first range in a case of the second video capturing mode. In particular, a second upper limit value of the second range is smaller than a first upper limit value of the first range, and a second lower limit value of the second range is larger than a first lower limit value of the first range.
