  • Bitmovin Newest Player V8 – a totally modular player, allowing service providers to select the exact functionality they need for their networks and content. See how modular video player leads to faster loading times and better user experience.
  • Next Generation Streaming Optimizations – Bitmovin continues its encoding technology innovations in Per-Title Encoding, Multi-Codec Streaming, Per-Scene Adaptation and our latest, AI-Powered Encoding.
  • Containerized Video Encoding – Deploy Bitmovin massively distributed video encoding anywhere! And we mean anywhere: on public cloud (AWS, GCS, etc.), private cloud or your own datacenter.
  • AV1 End-to-End Workflow – See the next generation video codec in action – from source ingestion and cloud encoding to browser-based playout with our AOMedia partner Mozilla. Learn about our encoding speed optimizations resulting in six times less CPU usage compared to our 2017 award-winning AV1 live encoder at last year’s NAB.
