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.
