Tutorial on HEVC in HLS and the New Beamr Transcoder

While at NAB, I produced a short video with Beamr CTO Dror Gil and Dirk Griffioen from Unified Streaming, which sells a variety of streaming-related software, including modules for ABR packaging. The primary topic was encoding and packaging with HEVC in HLS. Dror also gave a brief demo of Beamr’s new Transcoder product.

During the talk, we covered sub-topics like the suggested encoding parameters for HEVC added to HLS presentations and concepts for formulating an encoding ladder that includes H.264 and HEVC. We also talked about the compatibility aspects of hybrid H.264 and HEVC presentations, and how much testing you should anticipate to ensure solid operation and broad compatibility.
