Recommended quality-video size settings for ISO to iPad MP4 conversion:

◆ You're not suggested to adjust the frame rate and aspect ratio, if not necessary.
◆ Lower the bitrate to a lower level. Take the iPad Pro profile for an example, adjusting the original 5000 to bitrates of 1800-2000 is acceptable without noticeable pixellation, but this will help you reduce the file size of the ISO image file to a much smaller file.
◆ Lower the resolution. Adjust the resolution won't make any quality difference. The default settings is 1920*1080p while typical DVD ISO image videos are 720×480 (NTSC) and 720×540 (PAL), you can also adjust the parameter as Keep original.
