iSize claims that BitSave can deliver a 40% to 60% bitrate reduction while keeping the same video quality. We put those claims to the test.
CMAF has reached maturity. Here's one way to go about using it, with AWS Elemental MediaConvert
Any good compressionist needs tools to help reveal critical data about encoded files, from codecs and resolution to GOP structure and quality levels. Here's a look at some of the most useful.
If you need low latency, here's how to pick the technology solution that's right for you. But it's not a one-size-fits-all affair.
Unlike other cutting-edge codecs coming to market, LCEVC will have an immediate impact on the streaming landscape. Here's how to use it.
Looking for live streaming services? Whether you're streaming church services, school events, enterprise meetings, entertainment content, or just about anything else, this buyers' guide has you covered.
In rigorous tests of video codecs, only one produced vastly different results during objective and subjective examinations. What could cause that discrepancy?
It's all the buzz on the conference circuit, but deployment challenges mean CMAF hasn't taken over the streaming world yet. Here's why it's getting so much attention.
The 8-hour course covers the fundamental concepts and technologies of online video and includes hands-on exercises featuring some of the most commonly used tools in the industry
Nine members of the MPEG LA HEVC pool—including ETRI, KBS, NTT, and NTT DOCOMO—have left and joined the HEVC Advance pool
Survey reports from Encoding.com, Bitmovin, and LiveU offer insights into current and future codec usage, and all show that HEVC and AV1 usage is finally on the rise
GV Alyve takes inputs from GV STRATUS or any device that can generate an RTMP output stream, and offers ad insertion and VOD playout in the higher-end subscriptions
Over the course of this three-part tutorial series, we'll show you how to deliver Dolby Audio via HLS and play it back on any audio endpoint, including device speakers, headphones, or external sound systems via AirPlay or HDMI.
In two tutorials I'm going to show you how to create broadcast-quality live production with the NewTek TriCaster TC40. In this first installment, I'll show you how to select and configure the inputs. In the second, you'll learn how to mix and stream the show itself.
If you're in the market for a portable video encoder/transmitter, you should consider the LiveGear Airstream from Vislink. It's mobile and easy to use, and it employs predictive forward error correction and adaptive bitrate H.264 encoding to reliably deliver top-quality video over broadband cellular networks.
Average scores can be deceiving, so be sure you're using a tool that gives you a more accurate assessment of your video quality
As recent lawsuits regarding DASH-related patents make clear, royalty payments on adaptive bitrate streaming are inevitable—even if it's not yet clear who'll be paying who, or how much
Every compressionist fantasizes about discovering the perfect configuration option, but our columnist learns that some results are too good to be true.
The fact that DASH was always marketed as being free didn't stop MPEG LA from forming a patent pool. But lack of support from the major IP contributors appears to have doomed the effort.
Once revolutionary, pre-title encoding was replaced by shot-based encoding and then context aware encoding. Here's how to evaluate vendors when choosing a solution.
There's a long way to run video quality measurement tasks and a shorter way. As our columnist learned, it's never too late to learn a more efficient system.
Streaming Media West provided a look at new options for demanding live cloud transcoding jobs. Here's a rundown for those who couldn't be there.
