Fine-Tune Your Encoding With Objective Quality Metrics – Video and Handout

My Streaming Media session on using video quality metrics is now available for replay immediately below. You can download the handout here.

Here’s the session description.

T101. HOW-TO: Fine-Tuning Your Encoding With Objective Quality Metrics
Tuesday, November 19: 10:30 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.

Choosing the number of streams in an adaptive group and configuring them is usually a subjective, touchy-feely exercise, with no way to really gauge the effectiveness and efficiency of the streams. However, by measuring stream quality via metrics such as VMAF, SSIMPlus, and others, you can precisely assess the quality delivered by each stream and its relevancy to the adaptive group. This presentation identifies several key objective quality metrics, teaching how to apply them using commercial and open-source tools and how to use them to fine-tune your adaptive bitrate ladders and encoding settings.
