Encoding 2018: Codecs & Packaging For PCs, Mobile, & OTT/STB/Smart TVs – Handout

My first presentation at Streaming Media East. A complete lesson-based rewrite from previous workshops. Here’s the description, the download link is below.

As video resolutions increase and target playback platforms multiply, video producers must leave their H.264/HLS/HDS comfort zone and expand into HEVC, VP9, and MPEG-DASH. This workshop is divided into multiple segments by target platform to teach you the applicable standards and best strategies for delivering live and VOD adaptive video to viewers on that platform, both with and without DRM. Along the way, attendees learn options for producing H.264, HEVC, VP9, and AV1; the status of standards such as the Media Source Extensions (MSE) and Encrypted Media Extensions (EME); and how and when to utilize them. Attendees walk away knowing the technical requirements for delivering to all key platforms and the best practices for making it happen.
