W4. Encoding Live & VOD For HEVC/HLS
Monday, November 12: 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Apple’s support for HEVC in HLS is a groundbreaking event that opens up hundreds of millions of HEVC capable players. If supporting this spec is on your short-term development schedule, check out this workshop. The workshop starts by reviewing the new spec and sharing playback details, such as how well HEVC plays on hardware supported and non-hardware supported devices. Then it focuses on the HEVC codec itself, describing encoding options, royalty costs, and other implementation details. Learn how to create the necessary files and manifest files for mixed H.264/HEVC encoding ladders and finish with a look at how to produce live content compatible with the new specification.
