Now that AV1 has entered its final stage of development and is getting close to finalising its features, it’s a good time to take a closer look at what’s in store for the future of video streaming.
Join Bitmovin and Mozilla – the two companies behind the world’s first AV1 playback with HTML5 – as we discover the cool new video tools in this royalty-free video codec from the Alliance for Open Media!
This webinar will cover:
+ A bit about the history that led to AV1 and the current state of the codec
+ Discover the cool new tools in AV1 brings and compare performance relative to other codecs
+ Review what’s already possible and what to expect next

The cloud has transformed video processing and delivery, and it’s more robust, efficient, and flexible than ever. But on-premise solutions still have their place, as do hybrid solutions that offer the best of both worlds. Join this webinar for an insightful discussion and debate about the pros and cons of all three approaches.
Topics discussed will include the following:
• Capacity planning in the cloud vs. on-prem
• How the “cloud” relates to the physical infrastructure, and whether it matters
• Ability to move quickly with cloud deployments vs. long-term costs
• Specific functions that always benefit from being distributed or on-prem
• Considerations for high availability and disaster recovery
• Protecting against piracy
• Cloud vs. on-prem vs. hybrid—when and why each approach is called for

Apply Netflix’s technique to your videos to save bandwidth.
Since Netflix popularized the concept of flexible encoding ladders, per-title encoding optimization has been gaining recognition for its quality optimization as well as bandwidth-saving advantages. In this webinar, you will learn how encoding video at bitrates appropriate to the content achieves significant bandwidth savings, as well as improves the video quality.
Every piece of content is different, and each requires specific encoding settings to look good. Since Netflix popularized the concept of flexible encoding ladders, per-title encoding optimization has been gaining recognition for its quality and bandwidth-saving advantages.
It sounds simple enough, but there is a good reason it took the streaming giant years to make per-title encoding a viable part of their video delivery workflow. Since each and every encode requires individual analysis as the first step, the process is both very time consuming and expensive (more about the reasons why here). Until now, implementing per-title encoding optimization was only accessible to the largest streaming organizations.
