This article on the Wowza website provides a quick overview of the AV1 codec: what it is, how it performs, what it costs, and what it’s good for today. It’s useful if you want to get a quick feel for where AV1 fits in with other codecs.
The article is the fourth in a five-part series that covers H.264, VP9, HEVC, AV1, and VVC. There are four tables that detail compatibility, performance, royalty status, and suitability for tasks like live, transcoding, HDR. If you’re looking to get a quick feel about how the codecs compare and where each fits in (or doesn’t), give them a look.
