Bitmovin – Video Encoding and HTML5 Adaptive Streaming
The way Bitmovin implements online video standards such as MPEG-DASH or HLS is pioneering. The video solutions deliver content with the lowest startup delay going down to 100ms from page load to first frame. Content created with Bitmovin plays without buffering and in the best possible quality. Bitmovin provides 100% better quality without buffering compared to the next best industry solution.
To deliver this experience Bitmovin provides two products – Bitmovin HTML5 video player and Bitmovin cloud encoding service – that can be used independently, but provide the best experience when used together.
Bitmovin cloud encoding encodes videos 100x faster and provides higher quality output than any other encoding service. This means encoding a 2 hour HD movie in just two minutes – others need several hours. This is great for video content companies in terms of time to market as well as user experience.
Bitmovin enables HTML5 adaptive streaming with MPEG-DASH native in your browser – no need for plugins like Flash or Silverlight. Bitmovin guarantees fastest loading and video startup times with the best possible quality and no buffering. While other solutions on the market are struggling for stability and performance, Bitmovin just works.
