Bit errors on an uncompressed video stream have no visual impact. However, bit errors on a compressed video stream result in an impaired visual experience for a user. For this reason, DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1 mandate the use of Reed Solomon (RS) FEC when enabling VESA DSC.
For example, DisplayPort 1.4 has a bit error rate (BER) of 10-9 without FEC. The BER is the probability that a given bit will be corrupted. With the use of FEC, the BER is lowered to 10–18. At full DisplayPort bandwidth (32.4Gbps), this represents approximately one uncorrected error per year.
