Video: Video-Evaluation Best Practices: Testing & Optimisation Techniques

In this webcast, AWS Elemental dives into a topic other companies don’t discuss: The video encoding techniques some vendors use to sway judgment during proof-of-concept demos.

Improve your discerning eye and your analysis acumen, and obtain essential knowledge:

  • Methods and best practices for evaluating video quality
  • Examples of scenes which look totally different, but have the same metrics score
  • Important considerations for accurate evaluation of video results
  • Subjective vs. Objective results
  • How encoder settings affect output and how you can fine tune them for the best results
  • What is Adaptive Quantization and how can it improve your video output quality
  • Encoding techniques that impress in shootouts but might not be practical in production

Video encoding comparisons should inform, not fool. Learn what you need to know, before you start the process.

Webinar: Foundational Concepts: Video Compression, Processing and Delivery


On demand webinar from AWS Elemental covering some streaming basics.

In this webcast, you will:
• Learn how to create and deliver video over the internet
• Understand video codecs, containers, popular delivery methods and content delivery networks
• Consider methods, including adaptive bitrate streaming, that enable high-quality video to be delivered to a wide range of internet-connected devices
• Learn about the latest trends in video compression and delivery

Increasing smartphone subscriptions and data volumes per subscription are driving rapid growth in mobile data traffic, much of which is video content. According to multiple industry reports, these trends will continue for the near future, and by 2020, 75 percent of the world’s mobile data traffic will be video according to the Cisco Visual Networking Index. Technical and business leaders at organizations that aim to expand offerings using video need to understand the complexities of delivering premium viewing experiences to consumers.

Webinar: Intro to QVBR: Quality-Defined Variable Bitrate Control

Date: April 26th 2018, 16:00 BST, 8am PDT

If the most important characteristic of encoded video is quality, a simple and certain way to achieve it is through Quality-Defined Variable Bitrate Control (QVBR) which is designed to deliver constant video quality and waste zero bits in the process.

Here’s a brief outline of QVBR’s many benefits:
• Generate consistent, high-quality video for a perfected media experience
• Maintain video quality with fewer bits, saving up to 50% on storage and delivery
• Easy, simple operation: Just set a fixed quality level and a max bitrate and the encoder does the rest
AVC and HEVC codec support

Join AWS Elemental for an in-depth, technical discussion of how QVBR works, its advantages, and its uses.
