 Video Transcoding - Use Cases and Technology - November 16, 2011 12:00 PM EST

Video transcoding is a widely used term which means many things to many people. To traditional broadcasters, transcoding typically refers to the real-time, linear conversion from MPEG-2 to H.264 or vice-versa, and deals with video in a transport stream. To VoD operators, transcoding can be the conversion of files from one format to another, in preparation for ingest to a CDN. As broadcasters move into IP-based distribution over bandwidth-limited channels, transcoding may include segmenting video, as well, or packaging it for linear adaptive streaming.

During this presentation, attendees will learn:

  • How to differentiate the various types of transcoding used and when they are needed.
  • Use cases for typical deployments of: real-time broadcast transcoding, real-time adaptive streaming, and file-based transcoding.
  • Use cases for transrating – conversion to a lower bitrate with the same video format.
  • Designs, architectures, inputs, and outputs for various transcoding solutions and appliances.

In today’s multi-device, multi-format, limited bitrate world, broadcast engineers need to dig deeper into a technical understanding of transcoding: how it works, what it is, and when it’s needed. This webcast will provide an overview of those topics, and ensure attendees have the tools they need to deliver high-quality video in every situation. Register here
