I know time is short, but I’ve gotten in touch with most vendors that offer this feature and am posting this (and using social media) so the word is out. Anyone who wants to participate, there’s still time.
Here’s the description of the session:
T203. HOW-TO: Comparing Per-Title Encoding Options
Wednesday, May 9: 1:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
Per-title encoding techniques customize the encoding ladder to match the encoding complexity of the source, saving bandwidth on easy-to compress videos and ensuring the quality of more complex footage. Codec specialist Jan Ozer compares the efficiency, implementation issues, and costs of multiple commercially available and open-source alternatives, like Capella Systems Cambria Encoder, compression optimization from multiple vendors, and the alternatives available using FFmpeg. Learn what per-title encoding is, how the various options work, and which is the best option for you.

I would need your files no later than Friday, May 4 by close of business. If you’re in production with per-title, that shouldn’t be a problem, it’s about 30 minutes of 1080p videos encoded twice. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
