Choosing B-frames and Reference Frames

Aug 8, 2017 @ 2PM EST

Where keyframe configurations are critical to the smooth operation of all ABR technologies, B-frames and reference frames primarily impact quality and encoding time. In many instances, you can adjust these parameters to dramatically decrease encoding time with minimum impact on quality, which will either increase the capacity of your existing systems, or cut encoding costs in the cloud. In this webinar, you will learn:


  •  what B-frames are and why they’re important
  •  how B-frames impact file quality
  •  recommended B-frame configurations
  •  what reference frames are and why they’re important
  •  how reference frames impact quality and encoding time
  •  recommended reference frame configurations
