Bitmovin Video Encoding

Massively distributed video encoding that runs anywhere

We believe that video encoding should be decoupled from the underlying hardware to enable agile media teams to deploy anywhere based on their needs. We developed Bitmovin Video Encoding to be the most flexible encoding in the market that does not lock you into a specific hardware or cloud.

The Advantages of a Flexible Encoding Stack

We know exactly how hard it can be to manage an inflexible hardware stack at scale in an ever changing market. That is why we built a flexible encoding stack with performance in mind.

Horizontal scalability multiplies performance

Take a video, split it into chunks, and encode chunks simultaneously across as many different instances as you like. Containerized encoding gives you the power and control to scale up and down on the fly, as your workflow requires.

Reduce Video Streaming Costs

Encode with state of the art codecs, like HEVC, VP9 and AV1 to reduce file sizes by up to 50% compared to optimized H.264. Multi-codec streaming allows you to stream at halve the costs while maintaining the same perceptual quality for your users.

Simplify Workflows, Integration and Support

We know how painful it can be to integrate an inflexible encoding API or fiddle around with ffmpeg on the command line. The Bitmovin API was designed to make your integrations easy, giving you all the development tools you need.
