Improved QoE

Create higher quality video at up to 70% lower bitrates than the competition at the same resolution, making your HD and 4K content available to a wider audience.

Reduced costs

Decrease your storage footprint and CDN egress costs by up to 80% without sacrificing quality by eliminating unnecessary variants from your ABR ladder.

Use Cases

Best-in-class ABR ladder integrity means best QoE for viewers

  • For every resolution of a given video, there is a bitrate where visual quality reaches its peak and when plotted on a graph, the points where quality is maximized form a “convex hull”.
  • Bitmovin’s Per-Title Encoding beats the competition when it comes to ABR ladder integrity, meaning fewer visual quality drops, less noticeable switches between variants and an overall better quality of experience for viewers.

Frequently asked questions

What is Per-Title Encoding?

Per-Title Encoding is a video encoding technique that customizes encoding settings for each individual video to optimize visual quality without wasting overhead data.

How does Per-Title Encoding work?

Per-Title Encoding analyzes the complexity of a video file and determines the encoding parameters needed to maintain the highest level of visual quality together with the most efficient adaptive bitrate ladder.

What are the benefits of Per-Title Encoding?

Per-Title Encoding can increase visual quality while using the same amount of data when compared to traditional encoding techniques. Per-Title Encoding can also be used to lower bitrates, providing storage and delivery cost savings, while maintaining the same visual quality as traditional encoding.

What types of content benefit most from Per-Title Encoding?

HD and higher resolution content (especially 4K and 360) and longer form content with varying complexity will benefit the most from Per-Title Encoding. For short-form content like ads or time-sensitive workflows, the added time for complexity analysis may outweigh the benefits.

Which codecs are supported with Per-Title Encoding?

Bitmovin’s Per-Title Encoding can be used with the following codecs: H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, VP9 and AV1
