Quality

What is Per-Title Encoding?

It’s a form of encoding optimization that customizes the bitrate ladder of each video, based on the complexity of the video file itself. The ultimate goal is to select a bitrate that provides enough room for the codec to encapsulate enough information to present a perfect viewing experience, but no more. Another way of thinking about it is that the optimized adaptive package has been reduced down to just the information that viewers can actually enjoy.

Multi-codec

By matching higher performance codecs with compatible devices, you can deliver the best potential QoE for every screen, even with limited bandwidth. Expand your 4K coverage with AV1 and deliver Dolby Vision or multi-HDR with HEVC, while maintaining support for legacy devices.

HDR

Create Dolby Vision, HDR10 and SDR outputs from a single mezzanine file. Create a unified experience across multiple content sources with HLG and HDR10 cross-conversions or up/down conversion to SDR.

The example above shows the power of Bitmovin 3-pass encoding, reducing bitrates by 30% with no visible loss in quality. Enhanced analysis eliminates outlier, low-quality frames while boosting overall VMAF quality scores without increasing bitrate.

Advanced optimization of encoding around shot boundaries allows for better bitrate distribution and reduces your storage footprint. By removing unnecessary I-frames, playback becomes visually smoother, improving QoE and VMAF quality scores.

Case studies

Globo

Setting new quality standards in 4K. Brazilian soap operas and original series have never been more stunning.

“Globo is known to set quality standards. We want our viewers to experience our great content in stunning video quality. Our 4K workflows have been relying on hardware encoders, but we wanted to test the power of the cloud and conducted a thorough vendor evaluation based on video quality. Bitmovin’s encoding quality and speed convinced us across the board. And, since using Bitmovin’s cloud encoding service, we are spending a fraction of the cost by bringing our capital cost down without spending more on operational cost.”
