The Bitmovin Encoder solution uses parallel processing for fast encoding, allowing content to be available shortly after live broadcast or in the case of recorded shows its release from post production
“Every asset the BBC produces needs to be delivered at the best possible quality, including for catch-up and new release VOD services. We are proud our encoding solution enables their viewers to access their favourite programs in a timely manner, leveraging our cloud-native, massively distributed encoding technology which achieves greater encoding speeds without compromising video quality” said Stefan Lederer, CEO at Bitmovin.
The solution is also being used in ultra-high definition (UHD) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) trials.
BBC Ultra HD trials that have previously included Dynasties Blue Planet II, the FIFA World Cup and the Wimbledon Championships.
