The infographic uses a timeline moving backward from 2018, following the changes in video technology along the way. Each product has a few relevant stats like frame rates, resolution, data rates, etc. However, the metrics being measured vary by product, and the products don't seem to be organized chronologically — after reaching 1987, we jump up to 1996 and then down again to 1994 at the end. The layout is also pretty scattered without a standard size or alignment pattern for each image. This makes the design difficult to navigate. However, it is relatively light on text throughout, which is ideal; the audience will need some familiarity with video technology to understand the minimalist feature explanations, though. In all we'd give this a C.
