Defining Your Encoding Ladder

Aug 15, 2017 @ 2 PM EST

Your encoding ladder is key to supplying high quality video to viewers on all devices and all connection speeds. But before choosing the number of streams and their configurations, there are several high level issues to address, like whether to have a single encoding ladder for all targets, or multiple encoding ladders. In this webinar, which should last 40 minutes or less, you will learn:

 

  •  how ABR technologies work
  •  choosing an ABR technology
  •  whether it’s best to have a single encoding ladder for all targets, or a target-specificladder for each target
  •  how to choose the number of streams, and their resolutions and data rates
  •  What the Common Media Application Format (CMAF) is and how it may simplify supporting multiple ABR formats
  •  ABR-specific options to consider like bitrate control, key frame interval, and audio parameters.
