I really depends on the camera in question.

For completely raw numbers:

For 1080i/720p the pixel rate is 74.25MHz.
For 1080p the pixel rate is 148.5MHz.

Note that these rates include the blanking and sync regions of the video

The number of bits per pixel varies though. 8bit/colour (24bits/pixel)
used to be the only game in town, 10bits/colour (30bits/pixel) is now
getting common, and 12bits/colour (36bits/pixel) is starting to appear.

For compression it depends on what codec is used, and what the
compression settings are. For true HD content 17Mbps is about the middle
ground (for Bluray the max video bit rate is 40Mbps).
